“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength” Proverbs 17:22, NLT.
I’ll never forget when my husband and I attended a music ministry event while we were dating. Different music artists came up to sing, recite poetry, and rap. Towards the end, an altar call was given, and I went up for prayer. I got down on my knees, closed my eyes, and began to worship God. While I was bowed down, I felt a piece of cloth hovering over my head. I thought, “Well, that’s different,” but I didn’t care, I just kept worshiping God. So as I’m bowed down in serious worship mode, the cloth hovering over my head begins to move towards my back. By this time, I’m wondering, what is going on?! Then I open my eyes and lookup. Suddenly, I notice that I’m under a woman’s dress!! All I saw was leopard print! OH. MY. GOSH. I moved back so fast and sat down on the front row! The woman was totally unaware! While I was bowed down, she must have stepped back, causing her dress to cover my head! Everyone on the front row burst out laughing, and all I could think was, “Lord, you could’ve told me I was under that lady’s dress! I was worshiping you!”
I guess that was His way of letting me know He has me covered…literally.
The Lord has a great sense of humor. He is truly the center of our joy. He likes to bring laughter into our lives when we least expect it. My sister, receive His joy today and a merry heart!
Please share your funny moment. We soooo want to know!
Prayer: Father God, thank you for your sense of humor! Thank you for the joy and laughter you bring into my life when I need it most. Fill me with your joy and give me a merry heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
