Do You Have a Happiness Diary?


Do you have a "Happiness Diary"? It's important for our well being and this 1-minute devotion explains why.  #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

Earlier this year, I bought a little notebook with “Happiness Diary” written on the front.

I didn’t buy it because I was bubbling over with happiness.

I bought it because I wasn’t.

There were some major things going wrong in my life, things over which I had no control.

I was dwelling on those things. 

Sometimes we think we need a “Sadness Diary,” “Complaint Diary,” “Mistreatment Diary,” or “Difficulty Diary.”

But all those diaries become “Self-pity Diaries.”

God didn’t tell us to dwell on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy because everything in our lives would be wonderful (Philippians 4:8).

He told us to dwell on those things because we’d have trouble in life (John 16:33).

But He also told us to “take courage” because in Him we have peace and joy beyond our circumstances!

No matter what else is happening, we need to daily remind ourselves of God’s goodness.

We all need a “Happiness Diary.”
