Part of learning to live with a chronic illness is learning to laugh.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Proverbs 17:22 (KJV), “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

What the Verse Means:

Our attitude is crucial when dealing with a chronic illness. The cheerfulness of our mind does good like a medicine for the body. Our opinion contributes to the restoration or preservation of bodily health and vigor.

Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:

  • Lord Jesus, help me to enjoy the funny things that happen in life.
  • Heavenly Father, help me to take life one day at a time.
  • God, help me and my family and friends to not dwell on the seriousness of the chronic illness, but rather help us to live life to the fullest as we know you hold the future.
