Theme Scripture: Psalms 144:15

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – these are the stated freedoms that we here in America are all ideally given the opportunity to own, as stated on our Declaration of Independence. As for "life" and "liberty," we will look at those next week. That leaves us "the pursuit of happiness" part for today. While being happy is not actually promised, we are promised an environment in which we can pursue it. So, how is your pursuit going? Where are you looking? Are you keeping it once you find it? How do you hold onto it? Listen to this podcast for encouragement and practical suggestions...you’ll be happy you did!

    Listened to this program today (3/6/15). What makes me happy? Every once in a while, the Lord will put things in my path to make me smile. Once, when I was young and walking home from school, I was feeling pretty low and friendless. When I got to my house, I saw something that I’d never seen before, a toad leaping around on the lawn. Of course, as a kid, there is only one thing you can do about it… I tried to catch it. By the time it was encased in my hands, I was laughing. I thanked God for that little frog. Several years later, I had been discharged from the Navy and was staying at home with my parents. Coming home from somewhere (can’t remember where), I was again feeling lost and alone. As I walked up the path, I turned my thoughts to God and mused, “if only you could give me a little frog I could chase.” I came into the house and walked into my bedroom and, lo and behold, there was a little stuffed frog sitting on my pillow. I had no idea where it came from. Doesn’t matter… the Lord heard me ahead of time and provided! He makes me happy! There are many little things like that which the Lord has done for me from time to time to lift my spirits or to show His love for me… Yep, HE is the one thing that makes me very happy.
