40 Days – Day 8

find YOUR happy.

God created us for happiness.

Today’s session in The Best Lent Ever, is nothing but TRUTH.

“Are you choosing happiness, or are you choosing misery? We create unhappiness in our own lives. How are you creating unhappiness in your life at the moment?

If you are in a place where you don’t like who you are and where you are . . . if you are in a place where you don’t like your life . . . what do we do about that? Just do the next right thing. It’s always the path that leads to happiness. Just do the next right thing. Don’t worry about what you have to do tomorrow—just do the next right thing. It’s amazing how quickly adopting that attitude, that approach, can change the happiness levels in our lives.”

TRUTH. Sometimes, we are so stubborn that we stay in the comfortable. We don’t want to go to the unknown because it is scary. And He sits back and lets us stay there until He’s finally had enough–then He puts a situation in your life that makes you choose the unknown. Take the path less known. Sometimes, the known takes away from our happiness. And we don’t even realize it. Sometimes, the known takes you down a dark, lonely road. And we don’t even realize it.

Until it hits you in the face. YOU are unhappy. YOU are miserable. God doesn’t want that for you. He wants you to be the best-version-of-yourself. You can’t do that if you are not happy.

So…find YOUR happy.

Maybe it’s something as simple as a game night with your little boys. Maybe it’s something huge, like completely changing your career. Regardless, find it. And cherish it.

I love arts and crafts and all things DIY. It brings me such peace and joy. I am so grateful for the time I get to spend–just not thinking and doing.

What is your JOY time?
