Hope & Happiness... can you find it?
In a world that seems to pull and tug at our lives, causing us stress and frustration...
can hope and happiness be found? YES!
If you are seeking hope & happiness in a place, a job, a person, or in money, you will never find it. Hope and happiness are waiting to be found "IN" you. Yes, in YOU.
This world can only offer you temporary things.
Sure you can find momentary happiness and fleeting good times, but only everlasting joy, hope and happiness can satisfy the human heart and mind.
So where do you find everlasting hope and happiness?
In the person who loves you the most...God.
Anxiety, feeling inadequate, stress, depression... they can weigh you down.
Many seek joy in what they wear, where they attend school, where they work, where they live or in who they dress. All this is to impress the world.
Security, comfort, hope and happiness are not found in these things that the world deems are important to attain. TRUE JOY COMES from within you. It comes from what is sealed in your heart and mind. TRUE JOY only can be found when our inner void is filled with the love of GOD (Galatians 5:22).
His joy will leave you content no matter what the circumstances you are facing or the trials and burdens that may be weighing you down.
Oh there are so many idols in life that people look to - success, grades, money, relationships, cars, clothing --- yet none will fill your heart and satisfy your soul.
They are false distractions and do not provide a deep, secure, lasting inner joy and the confidence that no matter what your life may be like here and now, one day you will be eternally happy in a place of pure JOY.
Do you desire THAT joy?
Jesus is the only One who can completely fill you with hope and happiness. He is the only One who can satisfy your soul my friend. Because of this fact... He is the only One that can fill you with TRUE joy!
It is an amazing joy that enables you to walk in a crazy world and feel complete, perfect in Him, confident and happy with yourself.
Why? Because you know Who loves you completely, Who cares for you like no one else, Who has changed you into this peaceful woman, Who will always be there for you.
There lies your hope and happiness.. for you are His.
Open the door to your heart.
Ask Jesus to forgive you (yes, we're all sinners), to cleanse and make you new.
We can begin again, putting the past behind. It's so very simple.
Only Jesus can heal the hurt, erase the past & make all things new!
There is NOTHING that Jesus cannot forgive and cleanse.
Put all your questions, fears and uncertainty aside.
Talk with Christ today.
Begin again today.
In genuine sincerity, you can pray something like this...
Lord Jesus, I know that I am not the woman You desire me to be, and my sin separates me from You.
I believe You died and suffered in my place. I come to you now for forgiveness & surrender my life to You.
I now open the door to my heart. Come in, Lord Jesus. Fill me with Your hope, happiness and joy!
