Today is the Late Summer Public Holiday in the United Kingdom, and I can be found in my happy place – the North Norfolk coast. And I am delighted and supremely grateful! The search for happiness is a universal human longing. Where can we find it?
Does Worry Make You Happy?
Happiness Begins with Gratitude
Paul is specific about the type of prayer to pray too. He encourages us to ask for what we need, and crucially, to thank God for all he’s done. Why is that crucial? Because being grateful to God for all we’ve received from him brings peace. That’s where we find happiness. When we are delighted with what God has given us, then we feel much happier.
Happiness begins with gratitude. Take some time today to tell God what you’re thankful for and what you delight in. Be specific. Then tell him what you need and stop worrying about it. I guarantee you’ll feel happier when you do!
