Question for you:

Posted on November 8th, 2003

When you look at your life, are you happy?

If you had asked me that, say, five or six months ago, there would have been no time before I said “yes.” But now, I’m not so sure. Yeah there are a few staple things that remain good, but, more than anything, my attitude towards my life has really changed; I’ve become very critical of myself, and I often find that I have been disappointing myself in a lot of areas.

Something needs to be done. I don’t know what, nor do I know how. But I can’t go on like this.

    something does appear to be up. i thought about that (noticed it) yesterday.

    today my msn name is “happiness is circumstantial, but today i am joyful.”

    there have been a lot of crappy things going on lately. to my friends and to my family, and to others around me. but i just feel like praising God. i can’t explain it, and i definately am in awe. it’s strange. i know only that it is God, that i continually feel joy. well, i could say, that in the worst of times i may not feel it, but i definately know it. praises to God are not hard to find….i am not sure if this relates.

    it’s really easy to lose sight of joy, to not feel happy, to live either depressed, or maybe worse, without feeling at all. remember where joy comes from. who it comes from. things in life, blessings, laughing, fun, good times definately bring happiness, but those are only temporary. i cannot give you a formula to make things better. there is no easy answer. but i do know from experience that focus on Christ and time spent with him brings me joy.


    instead of asking “am i happy?” ask “do i have joy?”

    praying for you,

    “i lift my eyes up to the heavens, where does my help come from? myhelp comes from the Lord, maker of heaven and earth.”
    ~David in the Psalms

    God has given us something so incredible in this earth that can at least make you happy: the Body of Christ.
    actually, i might even argue that true friends bring joy. God through them brings joy. he created relationships, he wants relationship with us, and us to have relationships with eachother. don’t be afraid to express your thoughts in person…i am always willing to pray, even amidst all my joking and sarcasm 🙂

    Thanks for the prayers… while I know that faith will bring happiness, even my faith is seeing some troubling times right now… I can only hope things turn around soon.
