prayer for happiness

Post by thinking on Fri Mar 13, 2009 3:07 am

in the most vague way ever, i want to be happy. for me this means marrying the right person, having a child, getting the right job, meeting with God more, and all the normal things :angel:

You already have the fruit of the spirit, you just need to uncover it. Your definition of what would make you happy are all temporary things. Marrying the right person is NOT going to keep you happy because there are issues that come with marriage...even when you marry the most fantastic person. Having a child that you love with everything in you will not make you happy 100% of the time because there is MUCH heartache that comes with raising a child...getting the right job may get you the paycheck you want, but working with co-workers that have their own issues will test everything that God put in you.

The only thing on your list that brings happiness is "meeting with God more". Your relationship with Him will be all the happiness you need...it's everlasting and you may find that some of the other things on your list may not be exactly what you reallly want. So like the scripture Virtuous quoted...seek first God's Kingdom and His righteousness and all the things HE wills in your life will be added to you.

I hope this helps you.

I agree with "Jimmy". For the life of me I can't think of where it is, but I believe in it whole-heartedly. (Help me out somebody). "Delight thyself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." I honestly feel that God says He'll give us the desires of our hearts because as we get closer to Him, we begin to think like Him...Talk like Him...Walk like Him...Act like Him...etc. causing our desires to change. We soon begin to desire what He desires for us...Praise God! We are not willing to accept anything less than what HE wants for us!

I think the scripture you are referencing Virtuous is in Psalm 37. I don't have my Bible in my office, but I think that's it. It's one of those verses in the begining of the chapter.

You are right, the closer we walk with the Lord, we take on His likes and desires. thumbs

I'm not sure where you are getting judgement out of this because I thought we were encouraging to you. I'm not one to judge...I was trying to help you. If you feel judged I'm sorry, but maybe it isn't really us that is judgemental because we can also be judgemental of ourselves and think it's others doing it.

Blessings to you my friend...may you find the happiness you are looking for.

Peace!
