Psalm 34:5New Living Translation (NLT)

5 Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy;
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.


I am one of these people with a super big smile.
I have had a few people ask me “why are you smiling so big?”
This question always puzzled me. Was my smile too BIG?
I love to smile
Am I smiling because my life is perfect?
am I smiling because I have it all together?
am I smiling because all my dreams are coming true?


You see I don’t look like what I’ve been through

I have seen my own definition of tragedy.
I have had many hurts, disapointments, and rejections
yet I smile, and I smile BIG

I smile because I know that God can make a way where there is no way
I smile because I am loved by God
I smile because as bad as it is/was it could be so much worse
I smile because I am never alone
I smile because I have been forgiven
I smile because HE is working things out for me

The scripture says those who look to him will be radiant with joy.
So I keep looking, trusting, believing and smiling.
