Happiness

strive to be ‘happy’
seek not to fail
measure success
on the happiness scale
loving My goodness
when things go well
complaining and griping
when things ‘go to hell’
but testing your faith
is part of My plan
both goodness
and hardship
come from My hand . . .
resenting
or trusting–
which will it be?
when no longer happy
will you still trust in Me?

~JD Collier

“In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job.”  Job 1:1

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”  James 1:2-4 NIV
