I haven’t posted anything on current situation for months, if i am completely honest i really struggled to get back into it after i took a break. I tried a couple of times but each time it was sort of overwhelming so i kind of left it, lately i have been feeling inspired and i am back now so lets get straight into it.
As the title says this post is about happiness, this post is not necessarily spiritual (what ever that means😂😂😂). I guess as usual I’m sharing my heart, experiences and struggles, also I will be sharing bible scriptures relating to happiness because believe it or not God does want us to be happy.
Happiness is defined as feeling or showing pleasure or contentment and more recently I’ve heard “Happiness is a state of mind”. I think I prefer the latter definition, mainly because it suggests that actually Happiness has nothing to do with emotions instead it’s a state of mind , you see feelings are very fickle and if we always rely on them, lol we would rarely be happy. So I think Happiness being a state of mind makes more sense, that means that it doesn’t matter what’s going on around us we choose to be happy, because we see beyond were we are at the moment.
Let’s get a little personal, till my late teens and awkwardly my early 20s, Happiness meant having money, living a comfortable life, having easy tests and trials nothing too deep or out of my comfort zone, so in my mind as long as everything was going according to plan I would be happy. But guess what nothing went according to plan as you can probably imagine, so I was pretty much miserable half the time (I had happy days tho 😂). As far as I was concerned God didn’t care about my happiness because He didn’t do this and that for me blah blah blah I had a long list.
I remember getting into a situationship with someone and in the beginning he made me happy (or so I thought). After a while things went left he was getting frustrated (bless him ☹️☹️) because he was doing everything he could but I just wanted more. Easily one of my biggest mistake ever relying on a human being for that which only God can give. All of a sudden he became my source of happiness (didn’t last long at all ). Do you rely on people to make you happy ? Do you rely on your achievements or even social media to make you happy? Ask yourself (I’ll wait 🤔🤔).
You see true happiness stems from God who is your source. The bible specifically says
“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
It’s all in His hands, yes you can experience true happiness in its purest form, you see everything that we need He can give to us and where would you find it ? In His presence now where else 😀.
Psalm 144 vs 15b
” yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord ”
“Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you.”
So set time apart to seek Gods face alone daily, let Him renew your mind about what True happiness means.
Thank you for reading this 💙.
