The Lord Makes His Face Shine Upon You, And Be Gracious To You. Numbers 6:25
A US study has found that we spend trillions of dollars trying to boost our health. Between supplements, fitness routines, gym and health care, it all adds up fast into a lot of money. Yet there are many free things we can do to boost our health. One of the easiest free ways to boost our health, mood, and even success is to smile.
A scientific study report that I read found that smiling can be good for our health. It reduces stress, slows heart rate and gives peace. It’s very hard to smile and frown simultaneously. Smiling isn’t good just for us; a genuine warm smile blesses those on the receiving end as well. A smile can hug someone with love, a smile links us universally.
Sure life does not always give us a reason to smile. But when we see a heartfelt smile on others, our hearts are encouraged. Smiles are a hint of the image of GOD in us. . God smiled on us and blessed us. As we ponder on all the blessings in our life, we cannot help but smile and be grateful.
So today remember that each one of us is loved by GOD, He is gracious to us and makes His face shine upon us. The Lord lift up His countenance upon us and gives us peace (Numbers 6: 25-26). These words are the favour of GOD upon our lives and the lives of our children.
Dear GOD, may my life be so pleasing to You that You make Your face to shine upon me, and as You graciously smile on my life, give me strength to share your love with others through a smile.
