We tend to look outwardly for our happiness, love and for acceptance. God gave us all the tools within us to be happy, love and be loved. Pretty much anything we need to be or do is within our own selves, God gave us everything within, it is only the matter of having the faith to utilize what we have been blessed with. We can not find happiness from an outside source if we can not even embrace the happiness god gave us within. It is hard to love anyone or anything if we can not embrace the love God gives us deep inside. Once we learn to have faith in and embrace the gifts god planted within our souls we then will not worry about acceptance because we know we belong to God. As long as we don’t allow the distractions on our modern lives to get in the way and we don’t fall to the spirit of fear we shall live a happy and successful life. We must embrace that spirit of hope and the sound mind God blessed us with. We can not allow those in this world who try to make us believe we are hopeless or condemned without salvation. They wish only to drag you down with them, we shouldn’t have hatred for those people for we should pray for their souls and show them the compassion we are taught by Christ‘s teachings.
Look within yourself for the blessings god blessed you with and do not fall for the traps of our modern world.

You are so right, Ray!! If we do not have the love of God, inside,……we cannot possibly love others. And we will not succeed in life, either!! The way to find happiness within, is to let Jesus, live in our hearts. This was such a great post!!
Well said…it’s funny how we claim to have peace with God but do we really? The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. F E A R false evidence appearing real!!!
Great job, another eye opener Ray. Yeah your right, the thing about letting our modern lives take over we can become blinded and forget what our great Lord has and keeps on doing for us! Peace man!
I like this line: “We can not find happiness from an outside source if we can not even embrace the happiness god gave us within.”
Only in God can we truly find lasting peace and joy.
