How cheesy is that? How many articles have you read searching for the secret to true happiness? As if it could be found in a 30 second read online. The secret to true happiness is extremely simple, and devastatingly difficult.
I'm sure that you are sick and tired of living a life that is desperately reaching for 'blah' at best. That is why you are here; searching for the secret to true happiness. The truth is there are many facets of happiness. It is a term relative to your situation.
Here's the real kicker; the point where I will lose most of you: happiness is a choice. The world will tell you that there is a state of happiness to be reached, I will tell you if you search for happiness, your journey will never end. There is nothing to yearn for, everything you need to be happy is surrounding you at this very moment.
Take a second, ponder this thought...
The beginning and the end of your journey for happiness starts and ends with but one verse; John 3:16- "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
However, I realize that one verse will leave you thirsty for more. It's a good thing that God has provided that which can quench the thirst.
Let's see what God says, shall we?
God knows the struggles we face; He watches us daily. He is there for us to draw near to on a moment-by-moment basis. When we need Him, He is there! That means when you are sad, feeling burdened, you do not have to face your struggles alone. Jesus says "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). He continues on saying "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:29-30). God knows that life is hard. In fact, He knows exactly what you are going through at this exact moment. He doesn't want you to go through it alone, He wants you to bring it to Him and leave it at the cross. He will lift your burden, if you would only lift your eyes to Him.
If you are seeking true happiness then I implore you, cry out to Jesus. He is waiting for you. If you would like to know more contact me. I would love to tell you more about the love Jesus has for you.
