Being happy is a choice, it’s a decision you have to make every morning. You must know that the devil never wants to see you happy, he would do everything to make you sad and depressed so you’ll begin to think there is no God. That’s the test you must decide to pass. Job was happy, and living a successful life before he became entangled with a lot of challenges. Despite that, Job always knew his God and he refused to curse Him. He never felt alone, God was with him all the way and God is also with you. The little distractions the devil brings your way should not make you doubt the capability of your God.
One fact that you must know is that when God finally lifts you up, don’t ever feel like everybody will be happy for you or support you. It takes real friends to love you and not feel intimidated by your success. Sometimes you may just be wondering why your success is causing so much pain and sorrow for some of the people in your life.
As Shonda Rhimes asserted in one of her books:
“Unhappy people do not like it when a fellow unhappy person becomes happy.” Happy whole people are drawn to happy whole people, but nothing makes a toxic person more miserable and destructive than a happy, whole person. This is a true fact.
Talking about relationships, if you find yourself in love with a toxic person, it’s unhealthy. Sometimes, the people you love don’t deserve you. People may not always tell you how they feel about you but they will always show you, pay attention. The reason why so many potential relationships fail is because people are broken yet still trying to date. Healing requires isolation and most people haven’t conquered that battle of being alone. Stop being the only one trying to fix everything, it’s mentally and physically exhausting. You have to find peace with whoever comes and goes from your life. Don’t be the only one putting in effort because you will lose yourself trying to save someone else.

In today’s devotion “Rhapsody of Reality” pastor Chris talks about victorious life in Christ, when the Bible says that you’re more than a conqueror, it’s an assurance of Victory; you’re a victor for life; you’re absolutely indomitable. Nothing can hurt you or affect you. The Holy spirit took up his abode in you, He vitalised your body and has made it impregnable to sickness, disease and infirmity. Strengthen your faith and keep living a happy and a victorious life in Christ.
Finally to be happy, be grateful for the good times and keep the faith during the bad times. Stay positive when life gives you every reason to be negative. When life is sweet say thank you and celebrate, when life is bitter say thank you and grow. When God has selected you, it doesn’t matter who else has rejected or neglected you. God’s favour outweighs all opposition.
