Happiness is counterintuitive. It is found in the things you give away and not the things you amass. This makes nonsense of humanity’s tendency to grasp for many things.
As you ponder on the things you must give up for happiness, answer these questions:
Are you willing to give up your independence so the Holy Spirit can build character in you to impact your world?
Would you resign from a great job to follow the only man or woman who ever made you feel loved, but happens to live miles away?
Would you let go of your childhood fascination with sexy and beautiful for the one who makes you laugh and makes you whole?
Would you trade sleeping & partying for studying so you can become the best professional in your field?
Would you give up certainty for the unknown so you can move forward?
Would you turn your back on tradition for innovation & progress?
Would you sacrifice comfort for future glory?
What are you willing to give up for your happiness?
Do you even remember the last time you were happy? I mean, the last moment you felt delirious joy and deep seated fulfillment. What are you willing to do to recapture that feeling? Count the cost and then take the plunge.
I truly wish you happiness this year; the kind that makes you fall to your knees in gratitude. The type found in true friendship and sincere service.
