Happiness? Seriously...!?

Finally the work day ended, and I rushed to my car - I had to make it to the college before 6:00! The wheels in my mind began turning:

"What is happiness...? Am I happy? Or am I just pretending? Or maybe I don't know what real happiness is... so then technically if I'm missing out, I don't know it. After all, isn't ignorance bliss?"

Guilt-free conscience?
Family and Friends?
Church... Religion?

I think I finally narrowed it down to one thing..... Jesus.

Because in Jesus we have all the rest:

Because of His love for me, He sacrificed His life and died for me - which in turn brings me peace. I walk in His will for my life, and therefore have a guilt-free conscience. He gave me a godly family, and wonderful friends. He blessed me with a good job, so I have money to provide for my needs. I have a great church that He has allowed me to attend, and have more than just a religion... I have a relationship with the God of Heaven. He showers me with attention, and loves me like I am His only child (at least, that's how I feel... but then again, all His children feel this way...). Any and All the "stuff" I may ever need, I find in Him. Surely, He satisfies my every longing.

"God doesn't have to bless me,
but He's been so good to me."

What do you say happiness is?


  1. Happiness is following God's principles for right living because they guide us into a long-term right behavior since ours are ever changing. Obviously, you discovered that and your happiness flows through your writing-happiness that comes from knowing the Lord personally. God bless.

  2. Happiness is being in HIS presence!!

  3. Heather,

    Loved how you put all this together so beautifully! Happiness to me will never really be found here but is waiting for us all in Heaven where God is.

I am Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! I am intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. I have a good head on my shoulders, and oftentimes find myself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. I take great pleasure in many things. I am proficient in nearly all of them, though I will never own it. Lest I seem too perfect, I have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves me very ill indeed.
