Be Happy with your Life right Now!

I think we would all agree that at some point in our lives, we each struggle with unhappiness, a spirit of discontentment, with wanting more than what we have. We have all those moments where we quiet listening to the Lord. Well, maybe it was more like talking at Him, telling Him what we wanted. Does that sound familair? I hope and pray these messages encourages you choice to be happy. Have a wonderful day being happy right where you are.

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” ~~ Philippians 4:11-13 (NIV)

How many times have we said this to God. If He would just give me the desires of my heart, I knew I could be happy. But I have learned in my life that what God wants from us is to Be happy now. If you don’t learn to be happy while you’re waiting for what you want, you’ll never be happy when you get what you want.

 

Let me encoruage you that happiness cannot be the sole aim of our existence. Living out our purpose by serving and loving others as Christ does is our ultimate goal. When we stop focusing so much on what we want, and focus our gaze on what God wants to do in and through us, contentment follows. In fact, happiness is an external indication of internal contentment.

 

This realization should stop us in our tracks. The idea that we could choose happiness is refreshing. The first step was to embrace life exactly as it was; in other words, to be content. To count our blessings more, Most importantly, decide to wholeheartedly trust God.

 

Instead of making the most of our circumstances, it’s easy to lament the fact that things are not where we believe they should be. What if we stopped pushing against what is and learned to embrace our present circumstances?

 

When that shift is made, it feels like a heavy burden is released from our shoulders. Truly accepting where we are helps us relax and see the good God has in our present circumstances. We cast our cares, content in trusting that all things indeed will work together for our good.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
