Happiness

 

What does happiness mean to you?


Hmm happiness is never really defined correctly. Too often is it correlated with things or even emotions. Each of these in which are temporary states that can vanish or change with any given circumstance.

Happiness to me go hand and hand with a sense of inner peace The Lord has given me and the joy that only comes through the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Simple things bring me so much happiness... The first cry of a new born baby, when my sweet children show me their love for me through their thoughtful actions as a gift or just being a blessing, my beloved husband- just his mere presences brings me so much happiness (when he isn't driving me crazy) :) when I take a fantastic photograph, when I encourage someone with the Word and restore things even if it is just for a moment a sense of peace that only comes from Christ, when God uses this broken vessel to teach others the Word, homeschooling My sweet boy and babygirl.

Would you describe yourself as a naturally happy or unhappy person?

In a perspective of life I have a tendency to look towards the negative though I will often encourage others in the opposite direction. In others words I will encourage others in a positive way and discourage them to not to think negatively. But naturally and personally I would be... Hmm I hate to say unhappy because I don't feel like I am unhappy. Guess the best person to answer this would be my beloved husband... So we will ask him- He says a happy person ... Good because that is how I see myself.

A time when I felt really happy and a time I made someone else really happy..
I don't know- I know that I try to stay in a mind of happiness and positive. I try very hard to be happy with all the blessings The Lord has bestowed on my life even through my trials.

Happy are the people with such blessings. Happy are the people whose God is Yahweh. (‭Psalms‬ ‭144‬:‭15‬ HCSB)

Happy are those who keep His decrees and seek Him with all their heart. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭2‬ HCSB)

Happy is the person who trusts in You, Lord of Hosts! (‭Psalms‬ ‭84‬:‭12‬ HCSB)


Lord thank you for giving me a heart that longs after you and a peace that surpasses all understanding. Amen.

How would you define happiness?
