You Are Your
We sometimes let
others decide for us what we are going to feel for the day. We let them
work on our heart and our mind. Do you know that people can place you in
a valley, a valley of indecision and depression? Sometimes we think we
are doing it to ourselves but we arenít. Think for a moment, anytime
you have felt bad hasnít there usually been some one that made you
feel that way? We get depressed over a lost loved one that has gone on
and nothing we can do will change their destiny but the way we express
ourselves can change ours. We have talked to someone and they have told
us their problems and our heart goes out to them and we take them on as
ours, then we too are feeling low. God is bigger than any problem and we
need to realize that and give it to him.
is something that comes from deep within. Something we are in
control of. It is a sense of joy a thing that is in your inner
parts. When the Lord says for us to rejoice, he does not mean just for
the moment, he meant just what the scripture said. This is the day the
Lord has made. let us be happy and glad in it. In the day he has made.
118:24-"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be
glad in it.
will be times you feel bad but donít let it drag you down day after
day. You lose so much of your life, not the other persons life but your
life. If you practice happiness it will become a part of your life, a
habit, one you will enjoy and those around you will also enjoy. Live
your life one day at a time. I used to stay awake nights worrying about
tomorrowís problems and Iíd watch my Husband sleep. He says,
"what can you do about it tonight? Get some sleep and let
tomorrow handle its self. Such a wise man.
happiness is controlled by what you say and what you think not what
someone else says or thinks. Get control of your emotions, donít let
them control you. I like it where Paul say he was going to be content
with the state he was in, the only persons health it hurts is yours. The
Lord wants us happy, and as long as we do what he wants, that is what
counts, and that will be contentment. Who in your life if they be here
or gone is more important than your health or your state of mind?
Be Happy, Be fun. Enjoy as much of life as you can. It's long for a lot
of us and the longer it is the more time you have to be happy, so you
have a choice. Live long and happy or short and sad, because
sadness and depression will shorten your life.
