For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
Today's Morsel: I often see people who seem to be sad and possess little if any happiness. It's as if they are waiting for someone to come along and make them happy. I hear folks talking about the good old days and the things that they did to make them happy. But now, because they are a little older they don't think they can do those things anymore, so they don't appear to be happy any longer. I hear parents say to their kids when their kids say that they are bored, "Well go outside and play" to which the kids reply, "There is nothing out there to do, it's boring out there!" Solomon said that as one thinks in his heart, that's how he is! Arthur Schopenhauer, 19th- Century German Philosopher, said, "The happiness which we receive from ourselves is greater than that which we obtain from our surroundings." Therefore, each of us should always be happy. The last time I read the scriptures, I saw that "Joy" came with the Holy Ghost. As Paul told Timothy, "When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also" (2 Timothy 1:5). He said the thing you are missing is inside of you (my wording). The only person that can stop you from being happy is you. So put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, lift of your hands in praise, and get some happiness on.
Sing: If you're happy, and you know it, say amen! say men!; Iif you're happy, and you know it, say amen! Amen! When God's Spirit falls on you, makes you shout hallelujah! If you're happy and you know it, say AMEN!
Thought for Today: The only person that can stop you from being happy is you.
