The cheerful heart has a continual feast. *A happy heart is good medicine, and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. * The Lord ... Said, "Be of good cheer." * The joy of the Lord is your strength.
{Proverbs 15:15 NIV, Proverbs 17:22, Acts 23:11 KJV, Nehemiah 8:10}

The LORD said; "Be of good cheer."

We have many reasons to rejoice and be cheerful. All HE's done on calvary, for You, for me, for everyone!
HE'S wiped our sins away. HE Loved us while we were yet sinners! {Romans 5:8} 
Dead in our sin, blinded by darkness, yet HE paid the debt in full. HE hung on a tree where I deserved to be.  HE loved me still, while I was out chasing my thrills.
HE took our penalties, HE bore our sins, HE set us free!
Now let me be who HE'S called me to BE, I give my life to THEE!
I've wasted enough of my life living in darkness, living for self, living life's pleasures, but it was never enough.
When HE called me I did nothing to deserve HIS Grace. I was sitting in darkness, in complete disgrace.
    HIS LOVE reached my heart that was all torn apart,
HE took my brokeness, all my emptiness,
All my broken pieces.
HE took my ashes and Replaced it with a CROWN of Joy, Strength and Dignity. HE never ceases to amaze me. HE gives those who ask, Integrity.
HE gave me eyes to see, ears to hear, a heart that exclaims! "O how I Love THEE!"
HE gave me LIFE! 
HE took my strife.    
 HE is Mighty to SAVE,  HE Restores, HE Heals the broken hearted,  A Strong TOWER, A Refuge, A Shelter from the Storm.
HE is the KING of Kings, the LORD of lords, The PRINCE of PEACE. 
HE is GLORIOUS, so Marvelous! Incredible! Astonishing! 
HE makes this heart sing! 

We have many reasons to BE OF GOOD CHEER! HE will never leave us nor forsake us, HE PROMISES, to give us a HOPE and a FUTURE! Victory is OURS! IF GOD is for us, Who can be against us? The JOY of the LORD is our strength! I am cheerful in HIM! Therefore, I will gladly boast in my weaknesses and Boast in my GOD. I am weak but HE is STRONG! HE is my JOY, my SONG, my PEACE within! The Air I Breath, My Daily Bread!
