We all have those days where its just terrible, and we also have those days where its… so perfect. But within those days of chaos, worry, and stress, all we want to be is happy. Everyday all we want is pure happiness filled within us.
What makes you happy? Is it an object, the sky, friends, family, flowers, candy, or even sports? Whatever it may be, when you have the times of chaos, worry, or stress, what do you look to? When trouble occurs, do you look to the things that give you temporary fulfillment of happiness, or do you look to the everlasting fulfillment of happiness, Jesus, to find help?
We will always have a day that is what we call a “bad day” because something we wanted to happen, either didn’t occur or occurred in a different way. The reason we get so upset all the time is because we are always living our life on our schedule rather than the Lords. We believe we know what our path is and how our future is planned out, but we don’t. The Lord has our path laid out, all we have to do is follow it and keep our eyes open. When we close our eyes and start “dreaming”, that is when we loose track of our path and fall into a ditch on the side of the road (not literally… but you follow what I’m saying).
True happiness comes from the Lord. If you listen to Him and always keep your eyes open for the opportunities He has set for you, you will be amazed by all of the beauty and happiness in every little thing. The Lords love for us will change you when you recognize how great He is. Miracles will be worked within you, and it will flip your life around.
One thing that helps me keep my eyes open is having a prayer journal. Every night and even some mornings, I will write down everything I have to say to the Lord. By doing this, I can always keep my focus on the Him rather than getting distracted by anything else. Also, if I’m going through a tough time and I write about it, then later I can come back and see how much progress has been made in my life since then. Guys, the Lord wants every single one of us to talk to Him. When you’re wanting something to happen or if you’re already in a good mood, talk to Him. Ask Him if what you’re wanting is okay. He will lead you, just accept Him into your heart.
So happiness to me? Happiness to me is through so many things. I am a HUGE lover of: pictures, coffee, tea, flowers, good music, car rides, food, clouds, flowers, stars, LaCroix, summer tans, hugs, flowers, stationary things, and F L O W E R S! Oh and did I mention flowers? But even though all of these things can change my mood so quickly and make my day completely better, nothing compares to the plan and love set up by Jesus Christ.
If after reading this, you are still confused about how you can find so much happiness in the Lord, contact me! I would love to talk to you about how He has truly changed my life!
