We are in control of our happiness. Yes, that's right. It's up to each of us to decide if we want to be happy or not. It's true we can't control every problem or unfortunate situation that comes our way, but we can control how we respond to these things and how we allow them to affect our lives.
If you're currently experiencing unhappiness in your life, what have you allowed to make you unhappy? What's keeping you from happiness? Are you facing a problem and don't have the solution? Is your life going in a direction you never imagined? Have you let fear keep you from pursuing your dreams and achieving your goals?
You should focus on Jesus and not the problem. Jesus is the solution to the problem. "I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." (Psalm 121:1)
Seek wisdom and guidance. Jesus won't lead you the wrong way. "Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, 'I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.' (John 8:12)
Fear is from Satan and not from God. "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7) Don't let fear keep you from living a life of happiness.
