Choose God, choose life, choose happiness!
Choice – an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.
Every single day we are faced with choices. Far too many choices to count. What many do not notice are the smaller choices, the subliminal or subconscious choices that we make each day. No, I am not talking about whether you choose beef or chicken. I am talking about that little thing called happiness.
Happiness – the state of being happy.
Happy – feeling and/or display pleasure or contentment.
Seems pretty simple doesn’t it. To be happy. Well, if you are anything like me, then it isn’t always as simple as it seems. But that is because we are so used to choosing to be unhappy! Pretty scary thought isn’t it, we actually choose to be unhappy?!?! Now you may be reading this and thinking I have been ‘knocked off my rocker’. You might be saying to yourself “I don’t choose to be unhappy, it is the circumstances that make it that way”. Well I hate to bust your bubble, but happiness is 100% choice! You can pray for happiness until you are blue in the face, but you aren’t going to be happy unless you choose to be happy, unless you allow yourself to be happy! As they say, God helps those who help themselves.
Delight yourself also in the Lord: and he shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 34:4
Choose the Lord, choose life, and choose happiness!!! The power that God has bestowed upon our minds is inconceivable! We must learn to impede those negative thoughts that sneak into our minds, and we must instead train our minds to have positive thoughts and emotions. I like to refer to this as “mindset boot-camp”.
Making the choice to be happy opens up your heart to the Lord so that he can guide you to even more happiness above and beyond what we would ever consider. There are so many blessings that come alongside making a simple choice in our day to day lives.
Adjust – to permit small alterations or movements so as to allow a desired fit,
appearance, or result to be achieved; adapt or become used to a new situation.
If you want results in your search for happiness you must adjust your mindset, attitude and perception. Transform your emotions and feelings! These small acts will drastically change the way you live and see! We can all achieve true JOY when we make these choices and adjustments along with TRUST in the Lord that he will bring us even more happiness. Don’t you want happiness and blessings and joy? I know I do! Join me in my mindset boot-camp and let us defeat that negativity so that we can receive everything the Lord has to offer us so that we can be happy and joyful, so that even in the darkest of times His light will always be in our sight!!!!
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
