Happiness is... Monday Moments with God

My dear child,

Do you want to be truly happy?  MC900433817

Then you must listen to the things I tell you and follow my leading.
Embrace my words, plant them deep in your heart and live them.

Let your roots grow down deep into my word until they reach my life-giving water. You will be nourished and won't fall apart or become stressed during the dry, difficult seasons of your life. Instead, you will stay healthy - you will continue to grow spiritually and produce my kind of success in your life.

If you only follow me for the things I can do for you, you will reap selfishness and sadness. But if you learn to know my heart, you will reap an eternal harvest of joy.


“Make no mistake, God is not mocked. A person will harvest what they plant. Those who plant only for their own benefit will harvest devastation from their selfishness, but those who plant for the benefit of the Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit.” Galatians 6:7-8 CEB

Happy are those who trust in the Lord, who rely on the Lord. They will be like trees planted by the streams, whose roots reach down to the water. They won’t fear drought when it comes; their leaves will remain green. They won’t be stressed in the time of drought or fail to bear fruit.Jeremiah 17:7-9 CEB

1 The truly happy person doesn’t follow wicked advice, doesn’t stand on the road of sinners, and doesn’t sit with the disrespectful. 2 Instead of doing those things, these persons love the Lord’s Instruction, and they recite God’s Instruction day and night! 3 They are like a tree replanted by streams of water, which bears fruit at just the right time and whose leaves don’t fade. Whatever they do succeeds. Psalm 1:1-3 CEB
