Yesterday an online acquaintance just popped up out of nowhere (really on yahoo messenger, lol). She started telling me a dream about someone she is involved with in cyberspace and I listened. Didn’t comment much. We chatted about the message board that we met on and then all I did was say “for some reason I feel happy”. Yep, that is all I said. I got the feeling that statement made her unhappy. lol She immediately got offline.
I later saw something that let me know that she had drawn a conclusion from my brief statement. But all I said is that I was happy. I think she expected me to be unhappy. But the truth of the matter, I am happy and it has nothing to do with my circumstance. It’s just that I’ve turned the corner and accepted what God has said and that makes me happy.
Oh course there is more to the story, and I started to share, but I’ve probably shared too much on this blog already. For me, my circumstance is still adverse. I still am believing my vision semi-alone, but in spite of it all. I am happy. Happy in Jesus.
We can be happy in Him no matter what and that is what I am going to do and you should too!
New International Version (NIV)
10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
