Happiness is the Lord. It’s a line from a very old children’s song. It also states that the secret is Jesus in my heart. That shouldn’t be a secret. No matter what goes on in your life, no matter what happens, if you know Jesus, if He is truly in your heart, you can get back to joy and happiness in Him, no matter the pain sorrrow or tears.
The Bible declare in Nehemiah 8:10, that we should no grieve ahead of the joy of the Lord being our strength that we are so familiar with. We should never allow ourselves to entertain grief. It is normal to feel it, experience it, but it should not be allow to dominate our lives. Jesus should always be at the center of it.
It is possible to grieve over losses, even if it is a missed opportunity or something prayed for that has not come to pass. God’s timing is perfect, He doesn’t waste time or miss any opportunities. He is in control and never worries or fears, that’s only our hang up.
There is also an old song that it is no secret what God can do. It is true that what He has done for other, He will do for you. Do you want a child? Ask like Hannah. Do you need a miracle? Jesus is the miracle worker. He started a good work in you will complete it. Phillipians 1:6 He’s not finished with you. You’re on you way to bing His masterpiece. Ephesians 2:10
We’ve all heard the expression, a little bird told me. Well, it’s true. The little dove that descends on us if we ask, the Holy Spirit, whispers the secret. That true joy, happiness is in the Lord and is the Lord. He endured so much to see the souls won that have been and shall be. It was for the joy of this that He was able to suffer so much.
I have found the secret, have you? Real joy is mine even through tears, He will wipe away. The song I sang as a child often resounds in my mind. We are to grow up in Him and yet keep child like faith. Living the life that’s worth the living. Taking a trip that leads to heaven, happiness is the Lord. And it’s Jesus in my heart. Rebecca Jones
