What makes us happy?

If I was rich I would be happy, correct? If I had a rewarding career I would be happy, correct? If I had a nicer vehicle I would be happy, correct? And the list goes on and on…

What defines happiness? Have you thought about what really makes you happy?

The other day as I ran along the trail I was focused on the view. It was serene… the sunlight filtered through the trees and danced along the ground, the crunch of the fallen leaves beneath my shoes was hypnotic and with each breath crisp cool air tickled my nose. It was peaceful, just me and Mother Nature.

I began to think about my life, my family and how good I feel about myself. Without hesitation, I thanked God for His many blessings and realized how happy I am with what He provides and how He answers my prayers even when it’s not what I expected.

Psalms 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shall you dwell in the land, and truly you shall be fed.
