DON’T WORRY – BE HAPPY

BYxsOX6CYAENl9K

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

What is the source of true happiness?  Is it merely a state of mind or is it what we hope to accomplish throughout our lives?  Most of us have suffered with depression, loss, hopelessness, loneliness and all the other sad emotions out there.  It’s part of who we are, just as much as the happy times are a potion of our makeup.

God doesn’t want us to be unhappy.  He is our heavenly Father and He wants only the best for us.  This is why He gave His greatest gift, His Son, so that we could share Paradise with Him.

Most dads want happiness for their children, but they don’t always give them what they want in order to make them happy for the moment.  There are times when discipline is necessary.  There are days when things are taken away.  There are moments when dads hope to teach their children to be independent, strong, helpful, responsible and so on.  Those are days when they are really showing their love towards their children.

God makes every day for our pleasure.  We have the choice as to how we are going spend each one of them.  We can choose to have a positive outlook or be negative.  We can be happy when things are going well, or turn around and be depressed the minute things don’t go as we planned.

It isn’t easy to be up when things are dragging you down in life, but it is possible with God at the center of it.  He has great plans for you and me, so don’t worry – be HAPPY!

Ecclesiastes 7:14 “In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him.’

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  2. The quote, nomatter how absurd it may seem like when you are sad and depressed, but it is absolutely true. God has his plans and we as humans are not allowed to interrogate that. We should wait, endure, be happy (even in the worst situation), cry a little (if that makes your heart light) and then see as the story unfolds. He, after all, never disappoints anyone 😊😃
