Day 17: The Bible Is Real.

Sometimes, the Bible makes no sense. It seems there is no logical reason why it would say what it does, and one might even come to the conclusion that some of God's Word is... arbitrary. *gasp*

I LOVE finding nuggets in the Bible that seemed arbitrary or random, and matching them with scientific discoveries! So here's one for ya. 

A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
— Prov. 17:22

Turns out, laughter can actually stimulate organs, activate and relieve your stress response, soothe tension,  relieve pain, among other positive physical health benefits!

ALSO, depression legitimately makes your bones more brittle. True story. Read about it here, at this super legit website that is basically an online doctor.

Moral of the story... LAUGH A LITTLE. Get out of the dumps! Depression and boringness is killing you.
