Being happy and contented about life - life quotes that will uplift the heart
Make people happy
Do you want to make people happy? Happiness seems to elude us. If you don't have happiness, you can't give it away. How can we have happiness? Can we make people happy?
We wake up each day and long to be happy and at peace. The world is filled with images, messages, and events that try to rob us of it. Happiness is there, however, for the taking. Happiness is not about "having happiness, it is about "being happy".
How can we be happy?
Synonyms for Happiness: Joyous--cheerful--merry--contented--blissful--satisfied--favorable--successful---prosperous--fortunate
Happiness means different things to different people. People also have a variety of things they think will bring them happiness.
"Contented" and "satisfied" are among the synonyms for happiness. How many of us would claim to live a satisfied life? How many of us are content?
If we have to count ourselves among those who say, "I am not satisfied with my life" or, "I am not content"--aren't we saying--
"I am not happy".
1 Timothy 6:8
But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
1 Timothy 6:6
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
What makes people "be happy"?
Contentment with life, and inner peace.
We can't make people happy, but we can help people find happiness with the truth. We can bring a moment of happiness. We can do things that bring relief. We can help. We can support. We can encourage. We can pray.
To live happy and have inner peace, we must find ways to be content--with where we are right now--this moment. Happiness is within our grasp. The world will always have troubles--
"I have told you these things, so that in me [Jesus] you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
This is the way to be happy.
