S: Proverbs 15:13
A happy heart makes the face cheerful,
but heartache crushes the spirit.
O: When someone experiences joy, peace, comfort, their face will look happy. However, for those with a broken heart, their spirit is crushed. And, they may look and/or act sad, upset, or troubled. I can tell when a face is ‘cheerful”. Can I do so when one has a crushed spirit?
A: It’s good to have a discerning spirit so you can tell when someone has a broken heart or down spirit. So today I will pray for that discerning spirit that way I have the opportunity to love, encourage, and be kind to a brokenhearted person. I pray that the Holy Spirit blesses me with kind and encouraging words to speak.
P: Lord, please bless me with a discerning heart and spirit so I can help encourage those with broken hearts.
