“But the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming.”(Psalm 37:13 ESV)
“Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’”(Psalm 126:2 ESV)
There’s a song called, “Jesus Laughin” by Mark Lowery:
“There’s a picture on the wall that brings me comfort.Jesus Laughin’ by Mark Lowery
My weary eyes rest on it from time to time.
Its a sweet unique depiction of the Savior.
The only one I know quite of its kind.
It shows Him laughin, our Lord is laughin.
His head thrown back with joy upon His loving face.
And for a moment something happens,
I feel at peace just seein Jesus laughin.”
Can you imagine the pure joy of Jesus’s laugh? I have seen pictures of Him that show Him laughing. There is joy on His face and a light in His eyes. He is happy.
What do we have to be happy about nowadays? Tons of things.
New baby’s for one. There is a joy, at least for me, to hold a new baby. There’s just something about a baby. Kids laughing and playing. When I was still babysitting and picking kids up from school, I would watch the kids playing. It didn’t matter if they were black, white, green or purple. All the kids played together and had fun. What about spending time with parents or grandparents? Those are great memories, especially for the kids.
But my greatest joy was when I gave my life to Jesus. The moment I surrendered my life to follow him was the greatest day of my life. Do you know Jesus? Do you want to? Say this prayer and mean it.
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
Have a great day.
