Central Passage
Proverbs 17:22
Description

"A merry heart does good like a medicine:  but a broken spirit dries up the bones."  The truth of this passage of scripture has been verified by medical science.  Even the Mayo Clinic acknowledges the power of joy and a positive outlook on physical and emotional healing.  Conversely, toxic emotions can wreak havoc on our health.  Other scriptures indicate that "...the joy of the Lord is your strength..." (Nehemiah 8:10), "...the kingdom of God is...righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." (Romans 14:17).

It turns out the word "medicine" is not a strong enough word to describe what transpires when a "merry heart" takes over.  Instead of "medicine", a more accurate word would be "cure, or healing".  

Sometimes the moving of the Holy Spirit in a persons' life creates a merriment that is hard to explain.  At the end of tonight's service, some came down for prayer for various things.  The Lord began to touch people, and laughter broke out amongst those at the altar, and continued for 15 minutes or so.  

This recording is just a short sample of that encounter.  Some said they hadn't laughed that hard in years.  We hope you might be blessed as well...
