Happiness Is The Way – Daily Devotional

HAPPINESS IS THE WAY

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a
baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough
and we'll be more content when they are.

After that, we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will
certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.

We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or
her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice
vacation, when we retire.

The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now,
when?

Your life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to
yourself and decide to be happy anyway.

One of my favorite quotes comes from Alfred D. Souza. He said, "For a long
time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there
was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first,
some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid.
Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my
life."

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness.
Happiness is the way. So, treasure every moment that you have and treasure
it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend
your time…and remember that time waits for no one.

So, stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back to school, until
you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until
your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you
get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday
morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid
off, until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter, until you are off
welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, until
you've had a drink, until you've sobered up, until you die, until you are
born again to decide that there is no better time than right now to be
happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Work like you don't need money,

Love like you've never been hurt,

And dance like no one's watching.

God has given each of us a "gift" that we are to use to glorify His name! Do
you know yoursí??
