God created every thing for his pleasure; and those that love him and trust in him will be happy. Psalm 144:15 says, “Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.” God’s people are happy because of his love and the things he gives us to enjoy. God created a beautiful world with a beautiful creation. Try looking at his artwork (landscapes) and some of the animals he created. I must say some will bring joy to your heart.
Animals have a funny way of making people smile. A growing body of evidence confirms the holistic health benefits people gain from animals, including social, mental, physical, psychological and emotional health (University of Queensland). “Studies have proven that the health benefits of animals can include a reduction in blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease, increased sense of well-being and an increased feeling of connectedness to our community” (Maggie O’Haire).
If you ever find yourself in a place where you think there is no hope —if you are miserable and don’t see any point in living, let me tell you there is a better way. Sometimes the trials of this life will bring us down. Sometimes sickness, pain, money troubles, the trials of life or the death of our loved ones weigh us down with grief. Let me tell you that if you trust in the Lord, he will bring you out of your sorrow. He can give you that peace that you need. He will bring you more joy than you can ever imagine. Therefore you will can have joy in knowing God will take care of you.
The Bible tells us, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine (Proverbs 17:22). As a nurse, I have discovered that laughing will make people feel better and help them with their pain. So try to find humor in life. Look at things that will make you laugh and bring you joy.
God will provide for your needs if you trust in him. He will give you comfort and the peace you need if you rely on him. God wants his children to be happy and to rejoice, not to be burdened with sorrow. Psalm 28:7 says, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.”
