All of life is wrapped up in this one simple truth, true happiness and inner peace is only found in a relationship with Jesus. We will go through many different seasons and times in our journey through this life. There may be times when we have a lot and there may be times when we have little. There may be times when those we love disappoint us and times when they bring us great joy. There may be times when we do not measure up to our expectations of ourselves and times we have great confidence. There is one thing that will always remain and will never fail and that is God’s great love for us.
Live today thankful for your personal relationship with Jesus. Remember what He has done for you through the cross so that you can experience true happiness that is not based upon ever changing circumstances. If you have never experienced that personal relationship with Jesus, check out page 113 in your ReThink Life book.
Father, thank you for sending your son Jesus to die on a cross for all of my sins. Thank you that He did not stay in the grave, but He rose up alive on the 3rd day. Thank you that I can live this day in great confidence because of my relationship with you and because of the happiness and true contentment you bring to my life through Jesus! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
