Jentezen Franklin (July-16-2022) Daily Devotional: How to be happy
“If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” Jn 13:17
Jesus summed up His teaching on happiness this way: “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” The Bible gives us three keys that are vital to happiness. (1) Be content (See 1Ti 6:8). A man who tried everything to get rid of dandelions called a garden shop and asked, “What can I try next?” The store owner said, “Try getting used to them!” In life, you get what you focus on. Paul writes, “Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise” (Php 4:8 NLT). (2) Be grateful (See 1Th 5:18). Look around and be grateful for what God has given you.
And if you can’t, thank Him for what He has protected you from. The devil doesn’t have to steal anything from you, just make you take it for granted. “From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another” (Jn 1:16 NLT). (3) Learn to appreciate your loved ones. “Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others” (1Co 10:24 NLT).
George Eliot wrote: “Oh…the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” Remember, happiness is not an entitlement; it’s a reward for doing the right thing every single day.

Joel Osteen (August-21-2021) Daily Devotion: Be Happy with Who You Are.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. Romans 7:19, NLT
TODAY'S WORD: Many people don’t really like who they are. They focus on their faults, their weaknesses. They’re constantly critical toward themselves. That recording of all the things wrong with them keeps playing in their mind, “You’re impatient. You blew your diet. You should be ashamed of yourself.” They wonder why they’re not happy, not realizing they have an inner war going on. It’s very freeing when you can be happy with who you are even though you have some areas in which you still need to improve.
Think about what the apostle Paul said in today’s Scripture. Even he still struggled in some areas. If he would have been down on himself, he would have never written almost half the books of the New Testament and become one of the heroes of faith. You don’t have to have it all together to do something great. If you’re waiting till you overcome every weakness and perform perfectly, you’ll be waiting your whole life.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: “Father, thank You that though there are areas of my life that need to improve, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I know You are changing me little by little. I believe that what You started in my life, You are going to finish. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

God Is Good | God Gave Me a Happy Family - Full Movie with Subs.
Wenya's parents separated when she was two, and after that she lived with her father and stepmother. Her stepmother couldn't stand her and was always arguing with her father. He had little choice—he had to send Wenya to her mother's house, but her mother was fully focused on running her business and didn't have any time to take care of Wenya, so she was often shuttled off to her relatives' and friends' homes to be fostered. After so many years of a life of foster care, young Wenya felt lonely and helpless, and longed for the warmth of a home. Only when her father and stepmother divorced did she return to her father's side, and from then on had a home, for better or for worse.
Stay Happy - Joyce Meyer (sermon online). If you want to make an impact on the hurting people around you…do this one thing!
I had a lot of discouragement, and depression, and bad moods in the early years of mine and david's marriage. I had a lot of problems. I'd been abused, and I had not learned how to think right yet. And my husband loved me, and he tried to help me, but I really wasn't at a point yet where I was ready to receive help. And I was unhappy a lot, but dave stayed happy, and his joy made me mad. Well, it's the truth. You know, when you're unhappy, somebody that's happy annoys the living daylights out of you.
You don't it's like it's just like, "well, what are you so happy about?" And so and it was just it would almost aggravate me that he didn't seem to have any problems. Well, it must be nice that life was so great for you, but you know, you didn't go through what I went through. And, but I can also tell you that in the long run, dave's joy was the salt that God used to make me thirsty to have what he had. So, you're not helping the person you're in a relationship with if you let them make you unhappy all the time.
You're actually only feeding their problems. So, if you want to help them are you ready for this? If you want to help them, stay happy. I said if you want to help them, stay happy. And I'm not talking about being ridiculous, and going around and giggling all the time, and not but I'm just you know, joy is anything from extreme hilarity to a calm delight. And I think that we have those moments of extreme hilarity, but basically we live in a calm delight. It's God's desire that we just live in this calm delight, and that we can enjoy wherever we're at, whatever's going on. Not that we like everything that's going on, we don't. And one thing's for sure, now listen to what I'm going to say, you'll never be consistently happy if you don't make a decision that you're going to be.
