Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Six Ways to Cheer Up

1. Reflect on a funny or pleasant memory, and get ready to giggle. Your original cheerful feeling will always remain attached to that memory.

2. Don’t “awfulize” life. Make a habit of thinking positive. After all, optimism isn’t born; it’s a state of mind we choose to develop.

3. Personalize Scripture by inserting your name in God’s promises, such as Isaiah 54:10 or Nehemiah 8:10

4. Think uplifting thoughts—whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8).

5. Let God in on everything, including the annoying little cheer-depleters in your life. He cares!

6. Keep in mind that earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy by only to make us hungry for the real thing: heaven.”
(Marilyn Meberg)
When you get cheered up, don’t forget to share your joy with others. God wants us to share (give to others) our talents and abilities. The apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 9:7 says,
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”
While this verse is dealing with stewardship of finances, I believe it includes every area of our lives.

"God, use me to increase joy in others for Your glory.

Bro. Bill

God is Love! Let us reflect that love.
