When You Need A Good Laugh

Is life no longer funny for you? Has fun and joy seemed to be sucked out of your life as you grow up? Or perhaps you think that "if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off"?

Phil Callaway is an award-winning author and speaker, best known for his humorous yet perceptive look at life, speaks with great wisdom about how we can get through life's tough times with joy. God never promised us a life on a bed of roses. Trials and tribulations will hit one way or another. Yet, we have a great saviour and His book that we can find a joy that can never be taken away from us.

Romans 15:13 says,"Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." We can be overflowing in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!

Look back with Thanksgiving, look around you with Grace and look forward with Hope...

Phil shares 5 simple ways to get through life's tough times with joy - G.R.A.C.E.:

  • Firstly, "G" is for "Gratefulness" - the secret to a joy filled life. Gratitude absolutely transforms us.
  • "R" stands for "Rustproof". We are all training for the days to come, so whatever we are doing now, we will be doing the same thing down the road. Thus, keep a child-like spirit now and it will stay for the rest of your life.
  • Next is to be constantly "Amazed by Grace". Just simply stay in a constant state of amazement that the God who knows all, chooses to forgive our sins and love us.
  • "C" is "Compassion". Be compassionate towards the people you encounter on a daily basis, just love over someone.
  • Lastly, "E" is "Expectant" - looking forward to eternity.

With his new book, "When You Need a Good Laugh", Phil addresses some of the issues that steal away the joy between friends and within the family. As readers learn to lighten their loads, they are encouraged to replace fear with faith, worry with prayer, and a frown with a smile. For a copy of Phil's book, please visit the Crossroads eStore.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
