My Daily Devotional

Be Happy

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.”
Proverbs 15:13

Are you happy? I believe God wants all of us to be happy. 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. If we have our focus on being happy for the day, we can maintain our happiness. If however we only half heartedly have our vision focused on being happy, we may find that the first obstacle we meet can cause us to lose our happiness. The perfect start for a happy day is to learn to smile more often. A hearty smile will set the stage for the first meeting with your family, your friends and your co- workers. According to the medical profession it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile, so unless this is your idea of weight control, learn to smile more often and let your happiness show through. Don’t let others take away your happiness. Realize that your environment does not stop you from being happy. You can’t prevent the driver that cuts you off in traffic and blows his horn at you, or the rude waitress when you get your morning coffee. You can’t fix everything in your workplace, or even in your homes; however this cannot prevent you from being happy and contented. The thing that we need to learn from these examples is that we cannot fix everything. It is impossible to witness for God if we are grumbling, complaining and unhappy with everything, and everybody we meet. God wants us to be happy, and be a positive influence on people we meet during our day, and if we are happy the presence of God in our life will shine through. Happiness is catching.
