Seeking Happiness

"Your heart is where your treasure is, and you must find your treasure in order to make sense of everything." - Paulo Coelho

Good morning,

 

Psalm 37:4- "Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart". (NIV)

Life has exposed me to many people who simply are not happy. They are not happy with their jobs, they are not happy with their weight, they are not happy with their spouses, they are not happy with their relatives, they are not happy with themselves and the list goes on. No matter what it is, they are never happy.

Some people spend their entire lives seeking or chasing after happiness. I compare it to a treasure hunt. If they only knew that the secret to finding their treasure - their happiness - is to seek God. Happiness is within. They don't need to go looking for happiness through someone else; they can't find it through a job, or some miraculous occurrence; winning the lottery, or waiting for prince or princess charming to show up still won't guarantee happiness.

 

Today, I encourage you and hope you encourage others to delight in the Lord. Serve the Lord, continue to strengthen your relationship with God and he will give you the desires of your heart. He will lead you to genuine happiness and peace.


Dear God,
Thank you for leading me to happiness, my true treasure. To know that you live in me and by my taking delight in you, you will give me the desires of my heart. I pray that all your children delight in you, Lord, and find true happiness through you. I ask this in your son Jesus' name. Amen.
