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.

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?
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.
