I am only just beginning to realize how important pursuing happiness is. For years and years I believed that life was supposed to be hard and sad. I didn’t believe that God cared much about my happiness. I believed that he cared mostly about making me holy (step by step, by his Spirit, making me more like Jesus). But what I’ve come to realize is that, while God is very much about changing me to be more like himself, he is also definitely all for me being happy.
“It is a Christian duty, as you know, for everyone to be as happy as he can.” C. S. Lewis
This is such a big subject – the godly pursuit of happiness. There’s so much I could write here.
Why don’t we begin a journey here, delving into the pursuit of happiness? Let’s discover why it’s ok, even important, to be happy. Let’s talk about what happiness really means and that it’s not all about you — it’s about God. Let’s discuss how everyone can improve their happiness. Let’s look into the science of happiness.
Will you travel with me? Stay tuned.
