Did you know there are over 2,500 words in the Bible that reference happiness? But happiness isn’t just a joyful state of mind. It is affected by the well-being of your body, soul, and spirit. Even in these tough times, you can revive, replenish, and renew these three aspects of yourself to remain healthy, happy, and holy.
When you are whole, you can transform negative thinking, mindless thinking, and over-thinking brought about by the world and your current circumstances into acceptance, forward focus, and peace.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:2 (NIV)
“Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you…“
Romans 12:2 (MSG)
Hang in there, take every thought captive (2 Cor 10:5), and hold tight to Jesus. All things are possible with hope, faith, and prayer.
