Can you choose to be happy?


I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high. Psalm 7:17


Did you know that happiness is a choice?

A man said to a beggar one day, “Good day my friend.”

The beggar answered, “Well, thank you, but I never have a bad one.”

The man responded, “Well, may God give you a happy life, my friend.”

And the beggar replied, “I thank God that I am never unhappy.”

The man was speechless. And the beggar continued, “When I have plenty to eat, I thank God. When I am hungry, I thank God. If it is God’s will for me to endure this, then whatever is God’s will for me makes me happy.”

He chose to be happy.


What do you want? Do you want to be happy? Then choose to be happy today no matter your circumstances…by praising God.
