Proverbs 3:13-24 New International Version (NIV)
13 Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding,
14 for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
those who hold her fast will be blessed.
19 By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,
by understanding he set the heavens in place;
20 by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
and the clouds let drop the dew.
21 My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
preserve sound judgment and discretion;
22 they will be life for you,
an ornament to grace your neck.
23 Then you will go on your way in safety,
and your foot will not stumble.
24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
PURPOSE HAPPY ~
In life, we can choose to see the best in a new day.
Lets go back to the happy birthday statement for a minute. I remember being a kid and saying I was 8 1/2 or almost 9. Then I would have a birthday and look forward to cake. I would always get something for my birthday. Maybe not what I wanted, but something nice. Birthdays brings memories and a new age.
As I grew older, I see the importance of happy in Jesus. Jesus brings a light in a dark place and refreshed my soul. Jesus brings a new way of thinking and living. Freedom comes to our mind and released us from sorrows of sin. Once the past is forgiven by Jesus, it is so over. Never to be remembered again by God and a new life begins in Christ. I am happy that God gives us another chance in life. There are consequences to some sins and that doesn't always bring happy to us. In time, we will go through it and on the other side of it, will bring happy back.
Think of things that stir your soul to happy and see how he brought you through it. Praying and seeking him in a new day does bring happy. It might take some time to see the happy, but I have looked back on things to see there was happy moments. We might need to search for it a little harder today, but it's there.
A MERRY HEART DOES GOOD LIKE MEDICINE
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
