"True happiness... is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose” (Helen Keller).
Success in this world can be confused with happiness. I find people who have success and financial stability that they have achieved on their own; however, many would do something else that they enjoy if they could could increase their income.
I also find people who find purpose and joy giving themselves away even if they do not have a dime. Scripture reminds us that if we keep God in our lives, He will mold our direction. The writer of Psalms 37:4 reminds us to follow that reminder: “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
God, thank You for directing our thoughts and paths so to bring us to a true state of happiness. Amen.
In GOD We Trust!
