Not Happy With Now?


It's It Is Written, Matthew 6:25, therefore, I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink;  nor about your body.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
If you aren't happy with your life right now, you have plenty of company. The vast majority of people are working at jobs they hate, many have marriages and children problems, and on it goes.  There are as many reasons for people to be unhappy as there are people.  Let's look at a few.
Some people are unhappy because they are searching for the wrong thing. God is trying to get their attention, and they are not listening.  They feel an emptiness they can't seem to fill, and they get frustrated, and even depressed.
Another reason is quite different.  God is preparing them to follow His plan for their life, and they are not aware of it.  So they fight God's plan and continue to do it their way, so they end up struggling with bad decisions.
Then we have people that are really focused on what the world says is good.  This leads them to a constant feeling of wanting more, bigger, better, etc.  Their desires are never satisfied.
To be happy in this world, it requires us to focus on Jesus and His promise of eternal life.  Most people don't like to hear the truth, especially if it concerns Jesus.  So in a way they go about creating their own unhappiness. Human beings have an uncanny way of not knowing ,or doing what is good for them.   A word to the wise.  If your way is not working, do it God's way, in the Bible.  May God bless you and your family.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
