A Bible Talk About Happiness

 

Being happy isn’t something that just happens; it is a result of things you do, say, feel, and think. We don’t get to be happy all the time, and that is okay, so long as we push for our next moment of happiness. Don’t get stuck in a slump and think it is alright to stay there; you have to push to get out, push to find something that will make you happy and work for it!

I have always found happiness in God’s word. There have been many times in my life when I was too busy to read the bible and pray. Even though it doesn’t take that much time, I found other things that just had to be done. Those things became my priorities, and in turn, I was unhappy.

You might find your happiness in something different, and if that is the case, that is what you should strive to put first in your life.

During my time here in Romania I have pushed myself to put God first in my life.Β I spend most of my mornings reading the bible and praying for guidance. I have learned that God directs us through peace; essentially, we know what path to take by the way we feel. Feeling uneasy about something means that it probably isn’t God’s will so “going there” would not be the right thing to do. Even after praying, mistakes still happen and God will be there, all we have to do is ask him and have faith that he will take care of us.

 

1 Peter 5:7 KJV

Casting all your care upon him: for he careth for you.Β 

This verse invites us to let our problems go by praying about them and having faith that they will be resolved. This does not mean that issues go away instantly; sometimes we have to pray for weeks, months or even years depending on the severity of the problem. Faith helps us to keep on praying and believing till one day we come out of whatever problem(s) we are in.

Psalms 34:14 KJV

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Once we come out of our issue we must stay focused on moving in the right direction. Back-sliding can and does happen, so continuous prayer after the problem stage is necessary.

Proverbs 17:22 KJV

A merry heart doeth good like medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.Β 

We should always keep in mind that “happiness does a body good”, and it does good for others around us as well, so our priorities in life should be in line with working towards what makes us happy.

Mathew 5:9 KJV

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

I am pleased to have met many peacemakers in my lifetime; they make me want to do more for God and others, they make me happy, and through their inspiration, they help me stay focused on what I need to do in my own life. Having a Miraculous Smile is definite when I am blessed to interact with them!

 

I want to thank-you for taking the time to read my post and for stopping by my site. I hope that you enjoyed this and I would really like to hear from you!

    Although I’m not always happy, I can have joy in the Lord because that’s a gift of the Spirit. It’s God telling me that He’s with me even when things are not going well for me. Joy doesn’t depend on circumstances; it comes from keeping your eyes on God.

    “I have always found happiness in God’s word.”
    I have to confess that I have not. I have found much pleasure in the better English language versions of the scriptures but I can say exactly the same about the sacred texts of many other belief systems including the Toa.

    I fear there is no external god. Or rather I judge there to be. It is my “faith” that there is no god but that we must behave as if there were.

    Very well said. God’s peace is what guide me. When there’s unsettledness within me should run to Jesus. Your post reminded me to run to the truth of God’s Word. I thank God for leading you to find my blog. In returned, I found yours. It blessed me. Thank you and God bless you.
