Well! Are you happy? Remember no one can make you happy. Happiness is a choice and there are bunches of people who choose not to experience one of life’s greatest joys. If you’re happy, and you know it (I think I’m about to sing), praise God. If you are unhappy because you have chosen unhappiness, or because you don’t know how to be happy – let me remind you:
A person is happy when he knows the Lord God is his help and his hope. (Psalm146:5)
A person is happy when he is wise (application of knowledge) and understands the important things in life. (Proverbs 3:13)
A person is happy when he finds some poor people and lends mercy – and whatever else is needed to resolve some problems. (Proverbs 14:21)
A person is happy when he handles things well, wisely and efficiently, and trusts the Lord for the outcome. (Proverbs 16:20)
A person is happy when God and His will are known through the Biblical revelation of Himself and we are individually obedient to that Truth. (Proverbs 29:18)
So in those immortal words of someone, somewhere back there in history – “don’t worry, be happy” (I think I’m going to sing again).
Life is too short and too busy for much unhappiness. Find and utilize your fair share and then let’s get on with being happy. I know I’m happy you’re out there reading this.
