I have everything but a happily ever after.
To live happily for the rest of my life.
How does one do that? We have no idea what our life is going to entail. There could be a lot of sadness or even much joy.
To say “they lived happily ever after” is forward-thinking on the writer’s part.
Movies that end happily leave us satisfied, knowing there are no more troubles for our characters, and we can rest easy.
Can we rest easy in our own lives? How can we imagine a life with a happy ending when we can not predict what comes next in our story?
Finding my happy ending is going to require some soul searching. I do not know what my end of life will hold.
To get even close to having a happy ending. I think one’s thoughts must be positive. My favorite saying is, “not every day is good, but there’s something good in every day.
I think to acquire a happy ending; one must have a positive outlook on life. We must find happiness in the storm. Life is too short to sit around and be depressed. We must uncover what makes us a happy person.
We may not know how much happiness the end of our life will have but, we can make every ending of every day happy.
I think that’s the secret to living happily ever after!
14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
The promises of Jesus!
We talk of a happily ever after in this chapter and finding it.
We can be happy on earth if we try hard and look for the good in any situation.
I know some moments can be absolutely heart wrenching that it makes it hard to find the good.
When those situations occur, the only way to get through the pain is to have Jesus. by your side. There is no one else that can give you the peace and understanding you need during those times of despair.
Sometimes, it’s easier to find the silver lining. You have to want to see it, though. Some would rather wallow in self-pity than to see the greater good.
I don’t wake up very often without some pain going on in my body. I could feel sorry for myself and stay in bed and have a poor outlook on life.
I choose life; I prefer to get out of bed and find my happiness for the day. I will find joy in little things because they matter as much as the large ones.
I feel it has rained here day in and day out. If it’s not raining, it’s snowing. The sun barely shows itself during this time of year.
So, I find happiness by seeing the birds out my window. Or I get out in whatever mother nature brings and take a walk to my happy place and pray to the one who made this day. There are so many things to be thankful for. Just look for the good instead of dwelling on the bad.
Then remember the scriptures above. Jesus has gone to make a place for us. He’s coming back for us to be with him for eternity.
That place, if we are ready when he comes, will be the ultimate happily ever after
Jesus loves you!
If for no other reason, smile about that!
What makes you happy? What do these verses mean to you?
In conclusion, life is good.
I know some of you are probably wondering why the fairytale outlook on life? I chose the fairytales and feel-good movies because they leave us wondering why our life isn’t that way. We tend to watch them when we are stressed or feel down and need a pick me up. Down deep, we all know that life isn’t that easy, but it doesn’t stop us from dreaming it was.
That’s why I added the scripture. Scripture lets me see what is tangible. It shows me that everyone has a life to live, and it really has nothing to do with what and how much you have.
In the end, it’s really about your relationship with God.
If we have God in our lives, we can be optimistic and find happiness in this world.
He doesn’t promise that our life will be easy, nor will there be no tears. There will be many problems and sadness, but we can get through anything with The Lord’s help. Then once our trial is over, we will find the blessing from it. I believe every triumph we conquer is for us to share with the world how the Lord helped us get through and survive.
There’s nothing too great that the Lord can’t get us through. We have to call out and let him shelter us through the storm.
Just think how wonderful life will be if we keep God the center of our life. The end of our life will be the beginning. We will have the best of everything in Heaven. More than we ever dreamed of trying to achieve on earth. No movie or fairytale can compete with that.
I hope you find your fairytale on earth until you get the real thing in Heaven.
Thanks for reading, and God Bless!
