THE DIFFERENCE IN A FAKE SMILE; A FAITH SMILE…

We all do it sometimes…smile when we don’t really feel like it.

Some people call it a ‘fake’ smile, and sometimes it is.

Emotional Labor the act of showing the appropriate behavior for a job, co-workers, customers or ‘superiors’, such as when a waiter or waitress smiles while encountering a very difficult or rude customer. Their expression doesn’t show how they really feel inside.

When we have faith in and trust God, we will display spiritual Emotional Labor. We may be heartbroken, discouraged, betrayed, broken, angry hurt or even healing, but we still manage to smile because of our confidence in God. We know all things are working together for our good (Roman’s 8:28).


Our feelings will not always align with our faith.


Job is a great example of smiling through pain…

Job 9:27 (NKJV)

If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will put off my sad face and wear a smile.

When your faith let’s you smile through your pain, you aren’t hiding WHAT’S inside you, you’re revealing WHO’S inside you.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

  1. My husband and I are sick with some kind of flu. We’ve been sick for at least a week and I am really tired of it.

    And yet, God is so AWESOME that I can’t help but smile. Not only that, but now that I think about it, my husband and I have been well much more than we’ve been sick, in 2018. How wonderful is that!

    God Is Good — All The Time. 😊
