Where is the happiness that you so much seek?
Nowadays, happiness is hard to find, lots of people are searching and seeking for it but only few of them possess, live and enjoy happiness. You are chasing it but it slips through your fingers, it is like an eel when you think that you have secured happiness, it slips and disappears through your hands even if you were holding it with great confidence. It goes away and vanishes again! You think, you try but you cannot keep it; it disappears. You cogitate, if I could have a better job with more money! You find the better job with the more money, but you realize quickly that in the package of money and wealth was not included the happiness that you were looking for, and you start feeling disappointed. However, you still continue the effort to search for happiness. Now, you are trying to find it through another person. You eventually found the man or the woman that you believe will give you the life you always dreamed and wished for, but either he or she offered you the happiness that you seek and crave.
You pursue and procure education and reputation in order to gain the satisfaction that you anticipate, but you still feel empty inside you, as empty as your soul feels!
You are thinking so much effort and struggle and you are not finding anything! Nothing to fill you up and you feel empty and blank. You wonder: is this the life that I meant to live? It will finish without giving us what we yearn? Isn’t there any happiness in the world? We tried, we searched, we fought, we have only tasted a few drops but we haven’t lived it, we haven’t enjoyed it. Perhaps in the end it does not exist?
My beloved soul, I feel your frustration, your situation touches my heart, I understand how you feel. But, there is hope and there is the happiness that you yearn! The failure that you received is not due to the lack of happiness, but as to where and how do you seek for it. Happiness is not a product that you can buy on the market. Is not for sale, because its value is priceless! It is a virtue! It does not exist in the abundance of material goods, neither in human relations, nor in favorable circumstances. It exists in your relationship and communication with God and your Creator! You need the power of Holy Spirit of God within you, in order to become alive and to feel flooded with happiness. He made you and only Him knows how you can normally and fully function. He knows the correct tuning of your life to work with precision, with balance and with success. Then your happiness arrives because you know the source to derive it. The source is your communication with Jesus Christ and initiates from the cross and the blood of His sacrifice!
There you will find the ultimate happy and balanced life that you miss. There you will feel and know the meaning of your existence and the preciousness of life and time. Nowhere else will you find what you ask no matter how hard you search. Do not postpone it for another time, perhaps another time would never come or to be too late.
Jesus Christ himself says:
* “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”
* And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you. Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
(John, 16:23, 24)
* These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
* Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
