It amazes me how anyone could go on for prolonged periods with a sad face day after day, week after week, looking normally only occasionally. The truth about a consistently long face or gloomy countenance is that it quenches the spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:19). Heaviness is a spirit and you have to command it out of your life and your home! That look that carries the presence of sadness cannot release joy, happiness, meekness and calmness; that’s why it has to leave you. The presence you carry around you speaks louder than what you wear; it tells the condition of your spirit.
