Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

Just believe

The following is a page from Joyce Meyer's devotional book, Ending Your Day Right.  I read this last night and it is so true for me.  It is why I am Happyone.  : )

May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing . . . 
that by the power of the Holy Spirit 
you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.
Romans 15:13

As a believer, your joy and peace are not based on doing and achieving, but on believing.  Joy and peace come as a result of building your relationship with the Lord.

Psalm 16.:11 tells you that in His presence is fullness of joy.  If you have received Jesus as your Savior and Lord,  He - the Prince of Peace - lives inside you.  You experience peace in the Lord's presence, receiving from Him and acting in response to His direction.

Joy and peace come from knowing, believing, and trusting in the Lord with simple childlike faith.  So just believe . . . and be filled with an overflowing hope that cascades into every area of your life.


Have a blessed Sunday.
I pray you too find peace and joy.
Happyone : )
