What does it take to live a happy life?
I was privileged to pastor a dear lady who had a horrific skin disease. This disease had disfigured her and crippled her. She was in constant pain.
She could have become bitter and angry at God, but instead she exhibited a sweet spirit that only God can give. She was quick to share how God saved her and made a difference in her life.
She would tell me,
“Just because I’m in pain doesn’t mean I have to be one.”
She would say,
“Happiness is a choice so I choose to be happy.”
Being around her was convicting – she chose happiness no matter what.
Today what is it that upsets you?
Just because you are having a bad day doesn’t
mean you need to impose it on others.
As you face your world today, Today, remember these two thoughts, “Just because I’m in pain doesn’t mean I have to be one.” And “Happiness is a choice so choose to be happy.” The Bible says it this way in the book of Philippians,
“Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice.”
So as you face your world today, choose to be happy.
