Proverbs 15:13 A joyful heart makes a cheerful face,
But when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken.
Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
I am happy because I choose to be happy. I choose to be happy by thinking of the good things in life, and even on my worst day, there are many.
I am happy because I choose to be happy. I choose to be happy by rejoicing always, even in the worst trials because God loves me, and is infinite in wisdom and knows exactly what I need to experience at any given time in my life so as to grow at maximum speed toward Christ like character and to bear much fruit for Him.
I am happy because I choose to be happy. I choose to be happy by thinking about heaven and imagining all that I will experience there. Heaven is going to be such an amazing place that I can’t come close to imagining now, but I will give it my best shot.
I am happy because I choose to be happy. I choose to be happy because I can choose to be happy, it is within my power that God has given me to choose to rise above the problem and trials of life and be happy.
Am I ever sad? Yes, but not because of my circumstances being bad. I am sad because so many are happy or sad based on the circumstances of their life, they are truly victims. And what is really sad is that many who are sad because of their circumstances are Christians, followers of Jesus, and they have no testimony, no witness for Jesus. Lost people who are headed for hell forever are attracted to people who have hope displayed in their countenance, especially in hard times.
