Proverbs15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. verse 15 All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.  chapter 17: 22 A merry heart doeth good like medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.   Looks like a erson of a merry heart has a spirit that effect their whole life. Even their countenance shows what sort of spirit they are in. Guess it's hard to hide a broken or wounded spirit regardless what we do, it will show up one way or another. Must admit it is difficult to keep a merry spirit all the time when your sickly or in pain. Then too when your going through a trial of some sort or problems that have turned your life upside-down. But the Biblical fact remains if we try to keep our spirit on the joyful side, things even our health will benefit from it. It's been said that the person that has a good spirit about them will heal faster and their life is much brighter then the long faced broken spirit type person.

There are ways to help your spirit to maintain a better outlook on life and be a more cheerful type person. Refusing to dwell on the things you can't control, plus forgetting injuries of the past is one way to make your spirit brighter. Probably the best way to help your spirit, is to do as the song writer so worded his song. Take your burden to the Lord and LEAVE it there. Don't try to go through life without the help of God to deal with things that tend to dampen your spirit. How much brighter the day is, when we have met the Lord in prayer and sensed the smile of His face upon us. Talk about as the Psalmist said he could leap over a wall and overcome his enemies. When we know that the Lord is on our side what else matters in life anyway. In the midst of the storm Apostle Paul said, Be of good cheer- for there stood by me this night the angel of the God, whose I am, and whom I serve, Saying, Fear not, Paul. The time was when they thought the ship was about to sink and all would be lost. Paul's heart was merry in the midst of the storm because he had assurance from the Lord all would end well. A merry heart doeth good like medicine, lets heal our spirit and keep a bright and shining countenance for the Lord as He is our life.
