My Daily Devotional


Be Happy

“God will give to each person according to what he has done, but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good.”
Romans 2:6

The right attitude we have about ourselves will enable us to choose the kind of life we will have. Our lives can be happy ones where we have a true joy and peace, or it can be one where we are constantly battling depression, worry and can only see trouble in our path. I have always felt that God’s plan for our lives is that we will be joyful, peaceful, and contented, and that he would let us have an abundant life. We must strive to get our attitude to the point where we feel good about ourselves, and finding the inner peace that will enable us to be the happy individuals we would like to be. This does not mean that we will not have obstacles in our path that will try to rob us of our happiness and joy, but by being able to harness the positive attitude, and focus our inner self and energies to a positive position, we will be able to avert these obstacles and bypass them, and ultimately have this inner happiness and peace. I believe happiness is a choice we make each day we live. When we get up in the morning we can choose to be happy and enjoy our day. It is our responsibility to choose to be happy, as it is only if we are happy that we will be able to fully do God’s will for our lives. It will be impossible to witness for God if we are grumbling, complaining, and unhappy with everything and everybody we meet. God is counting on us to be a positive influence on the people we encounter during our day. By speaking a word of encouragement, giving a warm smile, or having a positive attitude is the way all of us can let our lights shine, and have a positive influence on the people we come into contact with. God wants you to be happy.
