I.M. Happy 19 Feb 2021
When I trust life, I am happy. It is not required that everything is perfect. Our washing machine needs repair. We face a lock-down and a curfew. I still am happy.
Happiness may have degrees. Doing something meaningful makes me more happy because it adds fulfillment. Enjoying things in life also builds happiness.
It happens when I postpone decisions which could be made now. If I wait, my sense of uneasiness grows. When I see the poverty of so many in this world, it also affects me. How can I be happy when others suffer?
Would it make me more happy to work for or with the poor in this world? I do have a strong sense that the answer is yes.
When I however do not care for my own needs, I will lose my happiness. It needs a balance.
Jesus Lord, help me to be in community with the needy in this world. Please connect me to tasks which connect more persons to your love.
