Stirring Hearts

appreciation comfort Joan Winifred trust Truth

a “cheer”ful song i like :)…”Just a Smile

  1. We can tell a hundred stories;

    We can speak a million words;

    We can paint a thousand pictures,

    But will a heart be stirred?

    We can often make a diff’rence

    With a kindly word or deed,

    But sometimes just a smile

    Is all we really need.

    (CHORUS)

    Just a smile can lift a weary heart.

    Just a smile can help us make a start.

    When you’ve done your best praying you’ll succeed,

    Then you will see a smile is what we need.

  2. This world is unforgiving—full of coldness and despair.

    Many hopes are disappointed by a world that doesn’t care.

    And we see it in their faces as they pass us on the street.

    So we offer hope and comfort to the people that we meet.

    (CHORUS)

    Just a smile can lift a weary heart.

    Just a smile can help us make a start.

    When you’ve done your best praying you’ll succeed,

    Then you will see a smile is what we need.

  3. At times we feel downhearted when no one seems to care

    About the hope we offer or the message that we bear.

    For some hearts are just too hardened to receive the Kingdom seed.

    But could it be a friendly smile is what they really need?

    (CHORUS)

    Just a smile can lift a weary heart.

    Just a smile can help us make a start.

    When you’ve done your best praying you’ll succeed,

    Then you will see a smile is what we need.

“Not one [sparrow] is overlooked by God. . . . You are worth more than many sparrows.”​—Luke 12:6, 7, footnote.

CONSIDER: Seemingly insignificant birds are not inconsequential to God. Not even one tiny sparrow escapes God’s notice; every one is a precious living creature. Humans are far more valuable to God than sparrows are. Humans, as the centerpiece of God’s earthly creation, are made in his “image” and are capable of cultivating and displaying his elevated qualities.​—Genesis 1:26, 27.

“O Jehovah, you have searched through me, and you know me. . . . You discern my thoughts . . . Examine me, and know my anxious thoughts.”​—Psalm 139:1, 2, 23.

CONSIDER: God knows you personally. He knows your most intimate feelings and concerns. While others may not understand your distressing situation, God cares about you and wants to help you. That makes life worth living.

Your Life Has Meaning
“O Jehovah, hear my prayer; let my cry for help reach you. . . . Incline your ear to me; do answer me quickly when I call. . . . He will pay attention to the prayer of the destitute.”​—Psalm 102:1, 2, 17.

CONSIDER: It is as if from the very start of human suffering, Jehovah had been keeping a record of every tear humans have shed. (Psalm 56:8) This includes your tears. God remembers all your trials and tears because you are precious to him.

“Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you . . . I, Jehovah your God, am . . . the One saying to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I will help you.’”​—Isaiah 41:10, 13.

CONSIDER: God is ready to help you. If you fall down, he will lift you up.

p.s. a “real” future sparrow..

“God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.”​—John 3:16.

CONSIDER: You are so dear to God that he willingly gave his Son, Jesus, as a sacrifice in your behalf. This sacrifice gives you the prospect of living a happy and purposeful life forever.

begs the question(s)

what am i willing to give God?

(God gave His best (for me))

what is “my” best?

(my best changes daily depending on health, etc.)

Two Lips & 1 eye

Acrylic, “tulips” aka two lips and one working eye…2006 (almost went blind in one eye; painting with “healthy” straining/over-worked eye helped me cope/heal).

So! Thankful! for eyesight/outlook of a “spiritual” kind. And to be able to speak:  trial is temporary.

This post is me kinda coping and a reminder to look beyond…(the pain, problem, aggravation, negative, challenge, etc.).

1 fav verse of many:

“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:4
