Yesterday some brothers and sisters asked me “Jennifer are we still meeting at Skid Row if it’s pouring?”. “Yes. It will stop when we get there.”
Yesterday till 9:20pm I couldn’t find anyone available to help us to pick up burgers at 7:45 am this morning and bring them to Skid Row to serve. The only choice at that time was – I pick up and have no time to share the message with our friends. I prayed for God’s will. Sure enough, at 9:30pm brother Jamie Jaramillo who I didn’t ask, offered to help. I shared the Happiness with our Church. And shared the message of How to be Happy as God’s plan.
No Joy – No Strength. It’s not your problems that are problems. It is the way you see your problems. When God and others are more important to you than yourself, that’s where you find your happiness. Our true happiness is in Jesus and our future with Him. If we are faithful, we can have unspeakable joy and fullness of glory now, in this life.
2 Corinthians 4:18 (ESV) –
“as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
