Life does not always give us a reason to smile. But when we see a heartfelt smile on a child’s face or through aged wrinkles, our hearts are encouraged.

Smiles are also a hint of the image of God in us. In the ancient blessing recorded in the book of Numbers, we get an indication that God smiles. The following text is a Hebrew idiom for the favor of God on a person’s life, asking God to smile on His children.

“The Lord makes His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace” 

Numbers 16:25-26 

This post was inspired by a Joe Stowell devotional.

Honey Do’s by Tracy:

Remember that you are loved by God and you are His light in a cold and dark world. So let your light shine! 

Don’t let the cares and worries of this world steal your joy. We are a blessed people! Rejoice and know that in Christ we are victorious!

I pray that a smile be continuously upon your face and that it may encourage someone on today. 

God bless and keep smiling! ☺💗
