Pursuit of Happiness

January 5, 2020

Life is a puzzle box of 1000 pieces.  You must find all your edge pieces and build your border before you start building the inside and seeing the Big Picture.   That border is a proper definition of happiness that will define your life.  So what is happiness?  

Researchers in Positive Psychology define Happiness as, The experience of joy, contentment, or positive well-being, combined with a sense that one’s life is good, meaningful, and worthwhile.  Their research breaks down the things that influence happiness into 3 categories:

  • Genetics (50%)
  • Actions & Thoughts (40%)
  • External Circumstances (10%) 

That's a fair definition, but it basically leaves happiness as Emotions resulting from Conditions.  We believe there's a better definition that embodies a recipe for happiness...

“Knowing that I have the ability to control myself in every situation, and can ask the LORD for help, and He will answer.”

GOD cares about you; and your happiness is important to Him.  Too important to be risked on things that will leave you open to disappointment, defeat, and despair.  Learn how you can live a happy life without losing yourself in an unhappy world.
