I would have to say that the question that I get asked more often than any other is ‘how do you always stay so happy? How can you smile so much? I have to admit that it is not something that I feel I have to purpose to do. When I wake up, I realize that it is a gift to be alive! Our days on this side of heaven are short and we must make the most of our time here. As the word of God says, ‘this is the day that the Lord hath made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!’
I have to say that what I love the most about the word of God is that when I read it, it gives me a sense of peace and security. More than anything it reminds me that the Creator of the Universe is for me, by my side, and in my corner! How wonderful is that? You are loved! Be encouraged and be strong! As stated in Daniel 10:19 you are precious to God! Go forth today with that comfort and joy!
Up until this year, I had never heard of the International Day of Happiness. As someone who loves to spread joy and happiness, I am absolutely thrilled about it! I believe in a world where we have our share of so much sad news we need to celebrate the wonder and the gift of being happy! Spread the joy on March 20th and every day that you possibly can!
Our life’s journey is going to be filled with great things, bad things and everything in between. Take all of it in. Use all of it. Treasure all of it. God is bringing you to and through each moment and each experience to draw you closer to Him. Walk with assurance that He is by your side and your loving guide through it all.
