How to be happy
But if you are a unique gift, question arises: who gives the gift? The Bible says Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father. (James 1:17) Knowing this provides the rationale for this route to happiness, it comes from God. It is a happiness that lasts. In fact, it can even grow stronger in adversity. Happiness through Jesus is a contentment that fills the soul, even if the eyes are filled with tears. True happiness is not based on success or failure, wealth or poverty, fame or obscurity. As we journey with Jesus we will learn that living out our purpose in life brings happiness as a welcome effect.
