while Growing in Grace"
-Matt. 28:19-20, 2 Pet. 3:18
What makes us happy? We all say we want to be happy. We attempt to look for happiness in people, places, and things. We may say to ourselves, if I had a husband/wife; if I had the car/house of my dreams; if I made $100,000.00/year, I would be happy.
Happiness has to do with our well-being and contentment in our lives. Happiness is when we have our health and strength and our families are doing well. Society wants to say happiness is having an abundance of wealth and prosperity but we can be happy when we are content with the things we take for granted every day. There are individuals who don’t have the luxuries of a simple thing as the extremities of their limbs.
You want to be Happy? Accept Christ in your life today. It is as simple as confessing with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believing in your heart that God raised him from the dead.
We can be Happy when we take delight in the Lord. He is the One that gives us the desires of our heart (psalm 37:4). It’s no coincidence that we have come this far on this journey called life. It is not by chance we have survived our storms and struggles, but it is because of the Grace and Mercies of God.
As we continue to think about our happiness, think about the things people have done to make us happy and how long it lasted; then think about how Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins; how He redeemed us back to God so we could be heirs of the throne. The thought should not only make you happy but it should bring you joy knowing someone loved us that much to sacrifice their life.
