“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
Proverbs 17:22 reminds us that “a joyful heart is a good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” These wise words are not only relevant to our physical health but also to our mental and emotional well-being. Happiness is not just a fleeting emotion that comes and goes; it’s an attitude we can cultivate through our thoughts, actions, and beliefs.
Here are some nuggets of wisdom for a happy life: first, choose your thoughts wisely. Our thoughts shape our reality, so focusing on positive ones is crucial. Second, practice gratitude daily. Gratitude helps us appreciate what we have instead of focusing on what we lack. Thirdly, surround yourself with positive people who uplift you and inspire you to be the best version of yourself. Fourthly set realistic goals for yourself and celebrate every small achievement along the way.
Romans 8:28 says, “We know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
As humans, we often find it easier to thank God when things are going well. During times of good health and prosperity, we have no trouble praising Him for His goodness and mercy. However, we tend to struggle with our faith when life takes a turn for the worse. It can be incredibly difficult to maintain trust in God during difficult times. As the adage says, “Though life may be stormy, trust in God to lead you safely to shore.”
The Bible reminds us in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 that we should “rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” While praising God during trials and tribulations may seem impossible, it is precisely what He asks us to do. Instead of focusing on our problems or hardships, we must shift our focus onto Him and recognize that He is still in control. So, trust in God, and He will lead you through your toughest times. Amen. Psalm 16:11 says, “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence, there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Amen.
1. Powers, assigned to make testimonies abomination for me, die, in the name of Jesus.
2. Any powers assigned to turn your destiny into a battlefield, may the power of the Holy Ghost pull them down now, in the name of Jesus.
