Are You Happy?

My Friends, I want you all to know, that I Thank God Everyday for all of You!
It's been always my hope and prayer, that my "Food For Thoughts" will in some small way, be a blessing to you. And too, further develope those God given skills that you all have been blessed with by God.

So My Friends, I now would like to ask you. Are You Happy?

My friends, remember always, that "Happiness" is something we create in our mind,
It’s not something you search for and so seldom find—
My friends, It’s just waking up and beginning the day
By counting blessings and kneeling to pray—
It’s giving up thoughts that breed discontent
And accepting what comes as “Heaven Sent”—
It’s giving up wishing for things we have not
And making the best of whatever we’ve got—
It’s knowing that the future is secure for us,
And pursuing our tasks without fret or fuss—
For it’s by completing what God gives us to do
That we find contentment and happiness, too.

“I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” - Philippians 4:11

My friends, its my prayer for you this day, that you too, will choose to be content, in so whatever state you find yourself in this day.

  1. How strange that I've found this one when I needed it the most. Just have to keep on believing that God does not only talk to us through his Word, but still, everyday, through those he choose as instruments. Thank you sir for allowing the Lord to use you! Perhaps you will agree with this pure and honest prayer of St. Francis of Assisi, in spite of the fact that he was a Catholic deacon and preacher (1181-1226) and the founder of the Franciscans: “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.”
