How can I find peace and happiness?

We all desire to live happy lives. We want to be happy in our relationships, in our jobs, and in life in general. Unfortunately, obstacles can sometimes get in the way and prevent us from finding that happiness.

The problem that plagues many of us is that we try to find peace and happiness in the wrong places or we look at life in the wrong way. We quickly forget the only source of true happiness is God.

In fact, God wants us to be happy! He desires for His children to experience happiness, walk in joy, and live fulfilled lives! We have to look beyond our current circumstances and make it a priority to remember that God has promised to always be faithful, hear our prayers, and protect our hearts and minds. True happiness is found in Jesus alone. Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
