Have you ever met a Christian who doesn't smile? Whose shoulders weigh their entire body down? Yes, life can be hard, but do we need to always look like it is?

Where's our enthusiasm? See, I learned this really neat fact in Sunday's sermon. You may already know it, but this one stood out to me. "Enthusiasm" finds it's root in the Greek word "Entheos", meaning "in God". So...if we're in Him, shouldn't we appear a tad enthusiastic?

Yeah, I know, a bit simplistic for all we face in life. But, for just a moment today, praise Him like you're in His very presence. And see if that smile breaks out and your shoulders feel a little less heavy. You may even just find a bit of enthusiasm:)


  1. Enthusiasm, Passion, Happiness, Joy. Christians, stand up and take notice! :)

    You are right, Susan. We are free from the bondage of sin. What's not to celebrate?

  2. So true, so true! Let your light shine with some enthusiasm! : )

  3. Yes - and apparently my smiley face picture is too! Didn't know it danced:) Love your smiling faces ladies!
