Seeking God and Finding Happiness

But happy are those . . .
whose hope is in the LORD their God.

Psalm 146:5 NLT

Do you sincerely want to be a happy Christian? Then set your mind and your heart upon God's love and His grace.

Happiness depends less upon our circumstances than upon our thoughts. When we turn our thoughts to God, to His gifts, and to His glorious creation, we experience the joy that God intends for His children. But, when we focus on the negative aspects of life, we suffer needlessly.

The fullness of life in Christ is available to all who seek it and claim it. Count yourself among that number. Seek first the salvation that is available through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and then claim the joy, the peace, and the spiritual abundance that the Shepherd offers His sheep.

Happiness is not to be found in things, only in the secret places of the soul.
St. Thérèse of Lisieux 

God has charged Himself with full responsibility for our eternal happiness and stands ready to take over the management of our lives the moment we turn in faith to Him.
A. W. Tozer

True happiness consists only in the enjoyment of God. His favor
is life, and his loving-kindness is better than life.

Arthur W. Pink

Christ is the secret, the source, the substance, the center, and the circumference of all true and lasting gladness.
Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

Today's Prayer

Dear Lord, I am thankful for all the blessings You have given me. Let me be a happy Christian, Father, as I share Your joy with friends, with family, and with the world. Amen
