Reminded me to just BE HAPPY! :)
What will make you happy?!
Imagine it was a sunny day and the weather is just perfect. Not too hot and not too cold. You find yourself having a picnic with Jesus. Your topic strays to contentment. He then asks you, “What will make you happy, my child?”
It was a tough question. What will be that one thing that can make you truly happy that once you have it, you will not want anything else? What is that ONE thing that will satisfy you enough that even though you get beaten by the daily problems in life, at the end of the day you can still say ‘It’s alright. It doesn’t matter. I have this ONE thing anyway’? What is that ONE thing that will inspire you to do wonderful things and to keep you smiling for the whole day?
I could say -
Money will make me happy… but I could spend it all on clothes and shoes that in one week I will have nothing left in my bank account;
Supportive family and great friends will make me happy…We could go out and talk all the time. But they have their own lives too. After some time, they will move on and I have to face my problems on my own;
A good job will make me happy… but how long can I put up with the stress that comes with a high paying job?
Getting my ambition will make me happy… but how do I know that what I want is right for me?
In the end, my answer will be –
You will make me happy my Lord. Please come into my heart. Please guide me as a shepherd does with his lamb. With you, I can do anything. I can be anything.
