We Choose Happines/Unhappiness
We can choose to be happy or to be discontented with life. Too often the blame for our unhappiness goes to people and circumstances not responsible. We can go through our days evading the issue that we ourselves are creating and causing our own unhappiness. I can live in a swamp, with rags for clothes, with little money, be sickly and still be truly happy. Happiness comes from within.
Why is my disposition generally troubled? Why do I find myself attacking others? Place the blame on myself. I can make a deliberate choice to bring happiness and peace into my life. Start off this way:
“I will happiness for myself. I want it to be my possession. I will place God and His Praise at the center of my life. This I do with deliberate, free choice.”
Love God with an outpouring of praise and thanks in conversation with Him and in public prayer.
