“Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with joyful shouting; then they said among the nations, the Lord has done great things for them. The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad” (Psalm 126:2-3).

Laughter? Joyful? Glad? Can you believe it? They were actually enjoying their relationship with the Lord. An exhaustive concordance reveals that the word “joy” or “joyful” occurs nearly 200 times in scripture. It is one of the qualities associated with God’s people and their relationship with Him. Go ahead, smile; enjoy your faith.
