In life, our outlook can help determine our experiences. When we view our situation as "glass half full," we have a more positive emotional response. It is up to us on how we approach our lives and even when it is difficult to have a cheerful heart, we can always turn to God!
God is our eternal source of cheer and love. It is through God that we are redeemed and have hope. In this hope, we can view the world differently. We can realize that our experiences on earth do not define us. It is our faith in and salvation through God that we can see our situation as "glass half full." We can be full of life, not dried and crushed, because God is on our side. We can have a cheerful heart that sustains us now and leads to eternity with God!
Turn to God for a cheerful heart that brings vibrancy and life, not death and despair!
Thank You for giving me a cheerful heart! Help me to always turn to You and to see each situation with a "glass half full" attitude. In Jesus I pray, amen.
