Are You Happy? 

Where in the world can a person find happiness these days?

 

Happiness by any definition seems to elude us, always just beyond our grasp. Could it be we are looking for happiness in all the wrong places?

 

Inspired by Max Lucado's book, "How Happiness Happens", we will go in search of a place called Happy.  This six-week road trip may be down the road less traveled, but we hope to find happiness at the end of the journey.

 

The focus of the series will be six Biblical commands, all involving the phrase "one another."  

These one another commands will serve as mile markers on the road to Happy!

STARTS JANUARY 3, 2021

Why memorize scripture? 

The point of memorizing scripture is to meditate on it.  "Biblical meditation involves becoming detached from the controlling and hindering influences of the world and attached to the living God through Christ...".  As you focus on a thought or concept within the scripture you've memorized, trust that it is the Holy Spirit leading you into that truth.  God is at work at reforming you, transforming you.  You might ask questions like: 

  • Is there a promise for me to claim?

  • Is there is a sin for me to confess?

  • Is there a blessing for which I should praise and/or thank God? 

  • Is there an error for me to avoid? 

  • Is there a character formation that I need to work on? 

  • Is there a virtue that I need to emulate? 

  • Is there something I need to prioritize?

  • Is there something I need to reject or deprioritize? 

  • Who should I or could I discuss what I've learned from this period of meditation?
