Wow, It’s Thursday Bible Verse

They say imitation is flattery, but I say this realizing that if I enter a room in a joyful mood and there in someone in the room who is really vocal and grumpy, it is more likely that I and others will find our own mood becoming dark and gloomy rather than the other individual catching our joy.

I have also noticed from my years of working in a busy office that on a dark and rainy day it seemed we all wore dark colors . . .

So, having realized this I made a deliberate effort to wear bright colors even though I was drawn to the other choice.  I truly do also try to force a smile on my face and be positive as this can change my mood and I hope change the moods of others.  This forcing myself to smile and be cheery is difficult, but this quote below inspires me as to whom I should imitate:

“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children” Ephesians 5:1 NIV

  1. The joy of the Lord is our strength. When it’s dark and gloomy outside or when I just plain feel bad, I begin to sing praise songs to myself or I begin to thank God for all His blessings, inevitably I begin to feel better!
