I Love Your Smile! (Day 9)

on March 7, 2012

In reading this chapter, I immediately thought about Shanice’s 1991 song I Love Your Smile.  In it, she talks about the love of her life, and how his persona and smile light up her life.  The song made me think about the things that make our Heavenly Father beam with pride.

So, what can we do to make God smile all the time?  There are five things:

  • Love Him supremely – have a relationship with Him.  It’s not about religion!
  • Obey Him wholeheartedly – being obedient unlocks understanding.  Partial obedience is disobedience.
  • Trust Him completely – having faith that He knows what’s best for our lives.  Father knows best!
  • Praise and thank Him continually – always have a song of praise in our hearts and a word of thanks on our lips.
  • Use our gifts, abilities and talents – He gifted us for His enjoyment, even in the most mundane things.  Sing that song, dance that dance, lend a helping hand!

 “The Lord is pleased with those who worship him and trust his love.” (Psalm 147:11, CEV)
