Day 5

© 2009 Carrie Morris

Are you Happy?
"The Lord does not say, 'Be of good cheer if the temperature is comfortable, if you're getting along well economically, if the people you love, love you, if you're in good health, or if your 'bio-rhythms' are up.' The Lord said that we should "Be of Good Cheer." It is not a suggestion, it is a commandment. There is a direct cause-and-effect relationship between being cheerful and reaping the richest spiritual blessings."
~Elder Joe J. Christensen

I'm going to make a conscious decision to CHOOSE to be happy today. To find opportunities where I can CHOOSE to make happiness my reaction. The Lord has told us to "Be of Good Cheer." I'm going to try my best to follow his counsel. I'm grateful for the privilege of CHOICE that has been GIVEN to me. The Lord has blessed us with so much in this life so that we CAN BE HAPPY. I'm going to be happy, are you?

This is a good reminder. I consider myself a pretty happy person, but when I get myself in a rut, I do have to consciously tell myself that's it. It's time to be of good cheer.
