Praise the Pain Away!

I absolutely hate gloomy days. You know the days where the sun does not shine or it rains all day. I also hate the days where certain things happen during my day that makes me sad, unhappy and miserable.  So what do you do when you have these sad, unhappy, and miserable days?  How do you brighten up these sad gloomy days in life?  Easy, by praising the pain away!

Instead of singing the woe is me song and getting upset when life throws a curve ball, put a smile on your face. After applying the smile to your face, look in the mirror and tell yourself that God has something better in-store for you. I know that this might seem really cheesy or common sense ( to some) but it is one of the hardest things to do especially when you are going through the dark times.  It is hard to smile and praise your way through the pain but it is worth it. When you put a smile and praise through the pain, the pain will simply go away.

How do I know this? I have had countless curve balls thrown at me recently in life. Graduating from college without a job, not going directly to graduate school, a relentless knee injury that does not want to heal and other things that should make my outlook on life dark and hopeless. However, instead of letting my curve balls make me feel down and sad, I smile and sing a line from my favorite song; “All things are working for my good, He’s intentional, never failing.”(Here is the link to my favorite song. I hope that you enjoy!) 

When we start thinking of our curve balls or trials in life as blessings from God, we gain so much peace and joy. The sad gloomy days are filled with light and happiness because we know that God has a plan to prosper us and not to harm us (Jer. 29:11). We also know that God never gives us anything that we cannot handle. When we have those sad gloomy days, remember that God has already given us a way out of them, so smile and praise! The next time you have a sad gloomy day, stop and think of all the amazing things that God has done for you. After gathering a list of all the great things God has done, smile and sing the song with me! “All things are working for my good, He’s intentional, never failing.”

Until Next Time,

Elyse
