Lessons Learned in 2020 - Lesson 3

“A glad heart makes a happy face; a broken heart crushes the spirit.” Proverbs 15:13 NLT

A smile changes us, it changes those around us, it engages people. It’s crazy how hateful our country has become not just from differences but let’s face it when you cannot see people smiling we feel separated. A weapon the enemy uses to cause farther separation. Not being able to see people’s facial expressions has caused us to withdraw from conversations, to not engage people on the street with a friendly greeting. We have acted like other people don’t even exist because we will not even make eye contact with each other. It’s like we just look at the ground and hope no one sees us, another weapon of separation and isolation the enemy has used. It’s hard to hide your face when your heart is happy, it shows on your face and the world needs to see joy and happiness during this time. We are shown enough bad but there is always things to rejoice in, even in difficult season. Let 2021 be a year that we learn to see people’s smiles and one in which we learn to smile even on the worst of days just to remind ourselves we will overcome.
