Who doesn't want to be happy? I know that the greatest desire is to have a happy life in the Lord, but it is not always that way, at least for me. I am pretty disabled and people do not always treat those of us in this condition nice. Some are rude to us and some just ignore us and there are some who are actually nice to us. Where does happiness come from? Let's check it out and see.
Psalm 118:24 "This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 4: 7 "Thou hast put gladness in my heart."
Psalm 16:8,9 "I have set the Lord always before me:. . .Therefore my heart is glad."
Proverbs 15:13 "A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance; but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken."
Our happiness comes from the Lord, He has put gladness in our hearts and it makes a cheerful countenance and if we set the Lord always before us we will have a glad and happy heart. This is so very true. Right now I am very sad and I needed this little study, I hope it has helped you as much as it has helped me. Grandma Joan
