Life can get hard and sometimes blur our vision to the blessings we experience around us every day. Happiness is a momentary emotion that we may encourage for others to enjoy but not for ourselves. Yet in order for us to enjoy this free gift of life we must choose to be happy daily even when it is hard.
If you are struggling to find a reason to smile today then here are 2 things you can be happy about right now.
You Are Loved
It is a privilege to have someone there to listen, talk and understand you for who you are. To be aware of someone’s love for you whether that be a friend, family or partner is liberating and should be the first point of happiness on your list. To take this further, you have a God who loves you dearly to the point of death, giving His only Son to die on a cross and later be resurrected in order to save you from your sins and have a personal relationship with you.
““For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”John 3:16 ESV
Happiness begins with love so embrace your circle today and know that you are truly loved.
You Have a Purpose
The discovery of one’s purpose is a tricky road to embark on. Regardless of whether you get to the end of that rickety path or not, you can be sure the journey alone is filled with happy moments. God has a purpose for each of us to fulfil, this can only be found through His Word and the vision He gives to you.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”Jeremiah 29:11 ESV
Your purpose is what makes you special, so take a hold of that dream or vision you have inside of you and explore it today.
