Are You Happy?

Are you happy?
I want to know…
What brings you joy and peace?
What is it that makes you feel alive?

You ask me:
Am I happy?
I am happy when I am following my callin
I am happy when I can help others
And be a blessing to those around me
I am happy when I am walking in nature
and feel God’s breath on my face
I am happy when I can see the Lord’s creation
I am happy when I am talking to my Lord
and He answers me
I am happy when I worship the Lord
This brings a deep peace within my soul
A yearning to be closer to Him
I am happy when I feel the warmth of the Holy Spirit
And I feel His presence within me
I am happy when I speak His word out-loud
And feel the anointing
I am happy when I wake and God gives me
another wonderful day to live
I am happy when I can see the sunrise
I am happy when His peace is with me
I am happy with whatever the circumstance is
I can be thankful, always
I am happy that I can turn to my Lord
And know that He has not forsaken me
Or abandoned me
I am happy that the Lord loves me
I am happy that He accepts me for who I am
I am happy that He knows
My every thought
My every desire
I am happy that He walks with me
Carries me when I can’t go on
The Lord is my strength
My joy
The lover of my soul

So yes, in the Lord’s good way, I am happy
I know that He loves me
I am deeply loved
I am deeply cared for
How amazing and wonderful is this?
Am I happy?
The short answer is yes

Are you happy?

  1. Sometimes I don`t feel happy…
    but always I can say: I will rejoice and be glad in Jesus!
    Sometimes I feel “Today is not my day”…
    but then I can say: “But it is the LORD`s day!”
    Am I happy?
    YES!

  2. So glad to hear you are happy, particularly after all the recent posts.

    And yes, I am happy too. Though I’m inclined to think ‘happiness’ is overrated and ‘joy’ is much better!
