Ten Things What Makes Me Happy?

Eshal, thank you for tagging me to your initiative to add additional fun on our blogging journey. You have an impressive blog and it can be appreciated especially considering your youth. Everyone, Eshal’s Blogging Site is where you can learn more about this young blogger. “A happy heart makes the face cheerful.” (Proverbs 15:13a)

Here are ten things that make me happy and joyous:

  1. I am blessed [happy] to be a follower of Jesus Christ. “Be ye followers of me, as I am of Christ.” (I Corinthians 11:1)
  2. I am blessed [happy] to gain wisdom, knowledge and understanding from scriptures. “Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of My mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. (Proverbs 4:5-7)
  3. I am blessed [happy] to be the wife of a wonderful minister of the gospel who boldly preaches truth without opinions or sugar coating the word of God. “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.” (Proverbs 18:22)
  4. I am blessed [happy] to have a husband who is the son of God and is respected in the sight of God and mankind. “Her husband is respected…” (Proverbs 31:23)
  5. I am blessed [happy] that Brother Woods was called by God to preach the gospel. “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?(Romans 10:14-15)
  6. I am blessed [happy] to be the mother of three adult children. “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.” (Proverbs 31:28) I am also happy to be the grandmother of a three years old granddaughter.
  7. I am blessed [happy] to have stepped outside my spiritual comfort zone to start blogging. “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32-33)
  8. I am blessed [happy] to have overcome my weariness regarding my health issues and now totally focus on my spiritual journey in Truth and in Spirit. “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.” (John 14:1)
  9. I am blessed [happy] to still be an employee earning a salary during COVID-19, and able to help others. “She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. (Proverbs 31:20)
  10. I am blessed [happy] to know I am alive NOW to continue on the path of righteousness. “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord wills, we shall live, and do this, or that. (James 4:14-15)

In conclusion, my NOW includes God and I hope yours does too. Everyone, please be safe as businesses slowly reopen and “Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”  (Psalm 37:4)

“A cheerful [happy] heart is good medicine.” Proverbs 17:22a
