Happiness is a choice --
I learned this while going through a 'toughie'.
Don't waste time being a glum bum
-- step out of the 'glums'
Step into the Happiness Spin!
It's time, isn't it?
Choose to Be Happy!
Choose to NOT worry!
Choose to be, what?

Are you aware of the words: You will know the truth and the truth will make you free? and If the Son sets/makes you free you are free in deed. Didn't Jesus say "I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life. . ." Hmmm. First step find these scriptures and read them, meditate on them, write them down on pieces of paper and put them around so you can see them. Look up the meaning to the words, write them down. Pray to Abba for the Spirit (as in Holy Spirit) to lead you into all, All, ALL truth.
In fact, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding - in other words let go and Let God be in you the life, heart beat, guide and revealer.
Trust, Delight, Commit, Rest, Cease -- hummm, good eating!
Do you know that your view on/of life can be NEW? Are you aware of how much you view life from the 'sin/death' viewless view? Slowly now: Are you aware of the view that binds you and holds you captive?
What if there is another view just for you? What if your new life comes with a new view (now there's a thought!)? I mean, have you thought about it? New Life, which is what becoming 'born again' is about, is new through and through.
Oh, did you think you were a sinner, just seeing yourself for how bad you are and how good Jesus is? Really? You really think Jesus paid the price for you to be free and new, just for you to feel bad and punish yourself, and idolize Jesus???
Think about it. God wants you to be free, not tied up in what you are 'not' or tied up in a k(not). Hmmmm. Whom the Son sets/makes free IS free . . .well are you?
Are you aware of your body? I mean do you listen to it? Or are you one of those people who get sick all the time? Do you use words like 'my cold, my sinus infection, my arthritis, my brain tumor'? Personalizing sickness and diseases???
Now hold on. I am not speaking against these symtoms, I am simply asking how closely you 'identify' with illnesses and diseases. Personally symtoms are simply indications that my body is out of balance -- due to the fact that I have not been listening to it, or following the guiding of the Holy Spirit, but taking my body for granted; earth suit and all. Sound familiar?
Well, do you wash your clothes? Do you take anything to the cleaners? Do you iron clothes and hang them up? Polish shoes and stuff? Well you do bathe, brush your teeth, put lotion on, cleanse your face, shower, powder, deodarize yourself don't you? Well are you taking care of your body inside?
I am speaking about the internal structure/organs and such? Do you take care of you physically? As in vitamins and exercise? Hmmm.
Do you take care of your car? As in oil changes, spark plugs, tune ups, tire changes/rotations, etc.; do you check on the air in the tires, take the car to the car wash, vaccum the dirt out of the car, take the papers and junk out, hang up air freshners, keep the windows clean, and the winshield wipers in good shape? Hmmm -- is your car more valuable than your body???
Well, I am going to start a section on Body Wise -- dealing with suggestions on maintaining your physical health! As in taking care of what you can take care of -- before a problem arises and you have to see a specialist. It's good there are specialists, however they deal with 'problems' -- I am suggesting you deal with listening to your body and learning some basics about how to take care (with your doctors support of course). Look for the next section coming soon.
