Hello, friend! Do you think Jesus wants us to be happy? Of course He does! BUT, sometimes we think happiness means something different than what it truly is. Jesus preached on a hillside, and gave the listeners the best way to be blessed or happy. We call them the "Beatitudes"... and let me tell you they will be changin' your attitude!
We need to depend on GOD, comfort people who are hurting, feed the hungry, be meek, be peacemakers, humble ourselves before God and let Him scrub our hearts clean of sin, and be ready for persecution. All of these things will make us happy, if we ask God to help us! When we are selfish, we will end up miserable. We are supposed to have the same attitude as Jesus (Philippians 2:5-11)... He humbled himself, and died on the cross. Do you think that made him happy? YES!!!! Why, because He obeyed God and laid His life down for His friends! God gave Him a Name above every Name! Jesus always wins in the end!
No matter how dark or sad life can seem, look to Jesus to be blessed and for strength. He will give us what we need- at exactly the right time! The Beatitudes WILL change our attitudes! Listen and be truly happy!!
