You Deserve Happiness!

 

You deserve HAPPINESS!
Let me say that again. You deserve HAPPINESS!
Yes, there are things that bombard us every day. Kids crying tugging on your sleeve, something breaks down, you’re late for work and life seems like a never-ending battle. But I say the battle is yours. The outcome of every situation can be positive or negative. Choose positive. You’re probably scratching your head right about now thinking, whaaat?

I want to give you a word of encouragement today that hopefully will brighten your day.
We all go through things but the way we handle them is up to us. Choose happiness instead of gloom. The battle isn’t yours it’s God’s. Cast your cares upon HIM and let him take care of it.
You may say I actually don’t know how to do that, then let me help.
1. Ask (pray) Him to come into your heart and cleanse it.
You’re probably saying, I’m already saved. Whether you accepted him years ago or just recently, life isn’t perfect, and we all fall short. We should ask for forgiveness every day that way nothing is in between you and him. You’ll feel better.
2. Read the bible daily.
By reading daily, it builds your faith and belief. The word is alive. It will guide and instruct you, but you have to read and study it.
Think of reading the bible as a relationship. When you’re in a relationship with someone you spend time with them learning their likes and dislikes. What makes them laugh and what makes them cry. You love getting to know them. So, by spending time reading the bible you learn and this brings happiness.
Download a bible app on your phone then let it read to you if you’re running short on time.
3. Believe that He loves you.
This is so important. With most of us, it’s hard to escape our past. We have a mindset that we can’t be loved, or we don’t deserve to be loved. But His love has no boundary’s or depth. He is love.
4. Now, cast your cares on Him. He doesn’t want you to carry the burden any longer. When you do this, you feel a relief. A relief that brings a smile to your face.
Why do I say you deserve Happiness, well because the bible says so?
Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with JOY (Happiness) and peace as you trust in him so that you OVERFLOW with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Is there Benefits to Journaling?

Have you considered Journaling? Wait! Before your thoughts get in the way of, I don’t know how, or I don’t have the time or even why should I Journal consider this article.
Why should you Journal?
Journaling can have mental and emotional benefits, a way of releasing stress from your daily life. Journaling helps to process complex ideas and thoughts. Most of the time when you write down an idea then read it seconds or even minutes later the answer seems to pop off the page.

my journal
The beauty of journaling is that it helps you grow as a person, it can help you recognize patterns in your life as well as helps you gain perspective. As for me, at the end of the week, I like to scan through my journal to see how God secretly worked in my daily life for that week.
Journaling by hand in a paper notebook moves a different part of your brain than typing does. And before you argue that you can write faster on the computer, journaling is not about speed, efficiency, or volume. It’s about dedicating a few minutes each day to honor yourself, your thoughts and your feelings. Writing by hand helps you get in touch with all of that better than a keyboard.
Whether it’s putting pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard journaling can make a difference in your daily life.
However, you choose to keep your journal, there are clear benefits to doing it. In every case, they can be a huge benefit to you, personally, and enlightening for anyone you choose to share them with.
Journaling may seem a waste of time to a lot of people and time is something we can’t get back. I know that sounded negative but your time can be precious to someone else. I lost my mom several years ago and what I wouldn’t give to have the time back with her. One of the many reasons why I started to journal is for my son and for when he has children. By writing my thoughts, recording events, and the things I’ve through gives the person that reads what I have written a sense of what kind of person I am, my daily life and who I want to be. They can see the times I cried and the time that I laughed. It’s my legacy to the next generation.
Simple steps to Start Journaling
The easiest way to journal is by keeping it simple.

  • When starting your journal, just date the entry and note your location.
  • Start by describing your surroundings if you need to get warmed up.
  • Write a little bit about your day. What’s on your mind? Think of your journal like an old friend you’re sitting down to have coffee with. Just answer, “What’s up? What’s new? What’s going on?”

Happy Journaling
