I asked God to give me Happiness!
God said, No. I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.
I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life!
God said, No. I give you life so you may enjoy all things.
Food for thought: God has indeed blessed us exceedingly. We already have the abundant life. What we need to do is to start being appreciative for ALL the big and little things He has freely given us to enjoy.
Rejoice for this is the day that the Lord has made!
