A Joyful Heart
Now, in that same vein, may I suggest that our emotions have a profound affect upon they way we feel. Maybe King Solomon said it best when he wrote these words, "A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. Our emotions cause us to sweat, to weep, to tremble. Our emotions really do effect us physically. Perhaps the most famous example of this was the recovery of Norman Cousins from what had been diagnosed as an incurable disease.
So he decided on his own treatment. The more he laughed, the better he felt. First thing you know, the doctors could find no evidence of the incurable disease. It went on to say, "There is now evidence that cancer patients liberated from depression can actually activate the anti cancer capability of the immune system. A strong will to live, along with the other positive emotions faith, love, purpose, determination, humor boosts disease fighting immune cells.
So the proverb is true. If you're joyful in your heart, then that is good medicine. But if you're not joyful, if your spirit is broken, then it dries up your bones. Think about it. Who are the people to whom we are attracted?

I know that those are familiar words maybe so familiar that the ring of them the wonder of them doesn't have the impact that it once had. We have been delivered! If that doesn't bring great joy into your heart, then I don't know what would. Filled with pride he stood on the deck, barking out orders. We need to know that God is good…always and all the time; if we are going to trust God through the difficulties of life, then we must know that He is always good!
Now, if we know these two things…that God is God and we are not, and that God is good…always and all the time, then our response will be manifested in two ways. First, we will have a word of praise on our tongue… Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth!
