THINGS THAT
MAKES US HAPPY
The bible tells us that the fruit of the spirit is
JOY—
Gal 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Happiness over an unanticipated or present good.
In the Old Testament joy (Heb. sama[;j;m'f])covers
a wide range of human experiences—from sexual
love ( So 1:4 ), to marriage( Pr 5:18 ), thebirth of
children ( Psalm113:9 ), the gathering of the
harvest, military victory ( Isa 9:3 ), anddrinking
wine ( Psalm104:15 ). On the spiritual level it
refers to the extreme happiness with which
thebeliever contemplates salvation and the bliss of
the afterlife.
express the joyous mood of believers as they
encounter God. Believers rejoice because God
has surrounded them with his steadfast love (
32:11 )and brought them to salvation ( 40:16 ;
64:10 ). David rejoices that God has delivered
him from the hand of his enemies ( 63:11 ).
Joy is aresponse to God's word ( Psalm 119:14
) andhis reward to believers ( Isa 65:14 ) and
their strength (
The Bible talks about happiness, but defines it
differently than our culture. When the Bible
mentions happiness, it is speaking of
something that is self-contained. The
happiness the Bible advocates isn’t
dependent on circumstances.
Ashrê is used in passages like Psalm 1, which
starts, “Blessed/Happy/Flourishing is the
man” (Psalm 1:1). ʾAshrê is used throughout
the Psalms and Proverbs to describe the
happy state of those who live wisely
according to God’s design
1) LOVE GOD
2) LOVE YOURSELF
3) FORGIVE
4) DONT WORRY
5) FOLLOWSHIP
1) LOVE GOD
Prov 16:20 He that handleth a matter wisely
shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the
Lord, happy is he.
Ps 144:15
Happy is that people, that is in such a case:
yea, happy is that people, whose God is the
Lord.
There is no true joy except Christ's joy. All the
supposed happiness a man fancies he can gain
without Christ will prove to be as ashes, a
disappointment. Do not suppose for a moment
that an irreligious man can be a happy man.
No man can really enjoy life without religion.
Love to God purifies and ennobles every taste and
every desire, intensifies every affection, and
brightens every worthy pleasure. It enables men
to appreciate and enjoy all that is true, and good,
and beautiful. Ellen white estate.
2) LOVE OURSELF
Mark 12:31
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt
love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none
other commandment greater than these.
3) FORGIVE
Mark 11:26
But if ye do not forgive, neither will your
Father which is in heaven forgive your
trespasses.
Luke 11:4
And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive
every one that is indebted to us. And lead us
not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
"Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." It is
most difficult, even for those who claim to be
followers of Jesus, to forgive as Christ forgives us. The
true spirit of forgiveness is so little practiced, and so
many interpretations are placed upon Christ's
requirement, that its force and beauty are lost sight
of. We have very uncertain views of the great mercy
and loving-kindness of God. He is full of compassion
and forgiveness, and freely pardons when we truly
repent and confess our sins. Review and Sabbath
herald the duty of forgiveness
Forgiveness is the intentional and voluntary
process by which a victim undergoes a
change in feelings and attitude regarding an
offense, lets go of negative emotions such as
vengefulness, forswears recompense from or
punishment of the offender.
Whether it's a spouse who was unfaithful, a parent
who let you down as a child, or a friend who shared
something told in confidence, we all must face the
question of whether and how to forgive.
After you are wronged and the initial wave of emotion
has passed, you're presented with a new challenge: Do
you forgive the person? By forgiving, you let go of your
grievances and judgments and allow yourself to heal.
While this may sound good in theory, in practice
forgiveness can sometimes feel impossible.
To learn how to forgive, you must first learn what
forgiveness is not. Most of us hold at least some
misconceptions about forgiveness. Here are some
things that forgiving someone doesn't mean:
Forgiveness doesn't mean you are pardoning or
excusing the other person's actions.
Forgiveness doesn't mean you need to tell the
person that he or she is forgiven.
Forgiveness doesn't mean you shouldn't have any
more feelings about the situation.
Forgiveness doesn't mean there is nothing further
to work out in the relationship or that everything
is okay now.
Forgiveness doesn't mean you should forget the
incident ever happened.
Forgiveness doesn't mean you have to continue to
include the person in your life.
... and forgiveness isn't something you do for the
other person.
By forgiving, you are accepting the reality of
what happened and finding a way to live in a
state of resolution with it. This can be a gradual
process—and it doesn't necessarily have to
include the person you are forgiving. Forgiveness
isn't something you do for the person who
wronged you; it's something you do for you.
So if forgiveness is something you do for yourself and if it can help you heal, why is it
so hard?
There are several reasons: You're filled with thoughts of retribution or revenge; you
enjoy feeling superior; you don't know how to resolve the situation; you're addicted
to the adrenaline that anger provides; you self-identify as a "victim"; or you're afraid
that by forgiving you have to re-connect—or lose your connection—with the other
person. These reasons not to forgive can be resolved by becoming more familiar with
yourself, with your thoughts and feelings, and with your boundaries and needs.
Now that you know what forgiveness is not and why it's so hard to do, ask yourself:
Do I want to forgive?
Forgiveness requires feeling willing to forgive. Sometimes you won't, because the
hurt went too deep, or because the person was too abusive, or expressed no regret.
Do not attempt to forgive someone before you have identified, fully felt, expressed,
and released your anger and pain.
If you decide you are willing to forgive, find a good place and time to be alone with
your thoughts. Then, try following these four steps to forgive even when it feels
impossible:
1.Think about the incident that angered you. Accept that it happened. Accept
how you felt about it and how it made you react. In order to forgive, you need to
acknowledge the reality of what occurred and how you were affected.
2.Acknowledge the growth you experienced as a result of what happened. What
did it make you learn about yourself, or about your needs and boundaries? Not
only did you survive the incident, perhaps you grew from it.
3.Now think about the other person. He or she is flawed because all human
beings are flawed. He or she acted from limited beliefs and a skewed frame of
reference because sometimes we all act from our limited beliefs and skewed
frames of reference. When you were hurt, the other person was trying to have a
need met. What do you think this need was and why did the person go about it in
such a hurtful way?
4.Finally, decide whether or not you want to tell the other person that you have
forgiven him or her. If you decide not to express forgiveness directly, then do it on
your own. Say the words, "I forgive you," aloud and then add as much explanation
as you feel is merited.

Matthew 6:25-33 (KJV)
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your
body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than
meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither
do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit
unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment?
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow;
they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in
all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the
field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into
the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O
ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall
we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal
shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles
seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye
have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his
righteousness; and all these things shall be added
unto you.
Mind, Character, and Personality Volume 2 : Page 466
Worry and Anxiety
Worry, Not Work, Kills.--It is not work that kills; it is
worry. The only way to avoid worry is to take every
trouble to Christ. Let us not look on the dark side. Let
us cultivate cheerfulness of spirit.
Dwelling Upon the Difficulties.--Some are always
fearing and borrowing trouble. Every day they are
surrounded with the tokens of God's love; every day
they are enjoying the bounties of His providence; but
they overlook these present blessings.
Their minds are continually dwelling upon
something disagreeable which they fear may
come; or some difficulty may really exist which,
though small, blinds their eyes to the many things
that demand gratitude. The difficulties they
encounter, instead of driving them to God, the
only source of their help, separate them from him
because they awaken unrest and repining.-
Worry Makes the Burden Heavy.--I greatly fear that we
are in danger, by worrying, of manufacturing yokes for
our necks. Let us not worry; for thus we make the yoke
severe and the burden heavy. Let us do all we can
without worrying, trusting in Christ. Study His words,
467 "All things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer,
believing, ye shall receive" (Matthew 21:22). These
words are the pledge that all that an omnipotent
Saviour can bestow will be given to those who trust in
Him.
As stewards of the grace of heaven, we are to
ask in faith and then wait trustingly for the
salvation of God. We are not to step in before
Him, trying in our own strength to ring about
that which we desire. In His name we are to ask,
and then we are to act as if we believed in His
efficiency.
Not the Will of God.--It is not the will of God
that His people should be weighed down with
care.
Anxiety Tends to Sickness and Disease.--When wrongs
have been righted, we may present the needs of the sick
to the Lord in calm faith, as His Spirit may indicate. He
knows each individual by name and cares for each as if
there were not another upon the earth for whom He
gave His beloved Son. Because God's love is so great and
so unfailing, the sick should be encouraged to trust in
Him and be cheerful. To be anxious about themselves
tends to cause weakness and disease. If they will rise
above depression and gloom, their prospect of recovery
will be better; for "the eye of the Lord is upon them"
"that hope in His mercy" (Psalm 33:18
Borrowed Care and Anxiety.--In trusting in God
continually there is safety; there will not be a
constant fear of future evil. This borrowed care and
anxiety will cease. We have a heavenly Father who
careth for His children, and will and does make His
grace sufficient in every time of need Undue
Anxiety.--God does not condemn prudence and
foresight in the use of the things of this life; but the
feverish care, the undue anxiety, with respect to
worldly things is not in accordance with his will.
Christians With Anxious Hearts.--Many who profess
to be Christ's followers have an anxious, troubled
heart, because they are afraid to trust themselves
with God. They do not make a complete surrender
to Him, for they shrink from the consequences that
such a surrender may involve. Unless they do make
this surrender they cannot find peace.--
Do Not Cross Bridges Before Time.--Now we want to
act like individuals who are redeemed by the blood
of Christ; we are to rejoice in the blood of Christ and
in the forgiveness of sins.
That is what we are to do, and may God help us to
get our minds off the dark pictures and think on
those things that will give us light. Now I want to
read another scripture, "Be careful for nothing"
(Philippians 4:6). What does that mean?--Why,
don't cross a bridge before you get to it. Don't make
a time of trouble before it comes. You will get to it
soon enough, brethren. We are to think of today,
and if we do well the duties of today, we will be
ready for the duties of tomorrow.
1 John.1:7
But if we walk in the Light as He is in the Light, we
have fellowship with one another, and the blood
of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Hebrews.10:25
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves
together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting
one another: and so much the more, as ye see the
day approaching.
Our High Calling : Page 166
161. The Blessings of Christian Fellowship
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves
together, as the manner of some is; but
exhorting one another: and so much the more,
as ye see the day approaching . Heb. 10:25.
Those who are of the household of faith should
never neglect the assembling of themselves
together; for this is God's appointed means of
leading His children into unity,
in order that in Christian love and fellowship they may
help, strengthen, and encourage one another. . . .
As brethren of our Lord, we are called with a holy
calling to a holy, happy life. Having entered the narrow
path of obedience, let us refresh our minds by
communion with one another and with God. As we
see the day of God approaching, let us meet often to
study His Word and to exhort one another to be
faithful unto the end.
These earthly assemblies are God's appointed means
by which we have opportunity to speak with one
another and to gather all the help possible to prepare,
in the right way, to receive in the heavenly assemblies
the fulfillment of the pledges of our inheritance.
Remember that in every assembly you meet with
Christ, the Master of assemblies. Encourage a personal
interest in one another; for it is not enough simply to
know men. We must know men in Christ Jesus . We are
enjoined to "consider one another." This is the keynote
of the gospel. The keynote of the world is self. s

Things that makes us happy

  • 2. The bible tells us that the fruit of the spirit is JOY— Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
  • 3. Happiness over an unanticipated or present good. In the Old Testament joy (Heb. sama[;j;m'f])covers a wide range of human experiences—from sexual love ( So 1:4 ), to marriage( Pr 5:18 ), thebirth of children ( Psalm113:9 ), the gathering of the harvest, military victory ( Isa 9:3 ), anddrinking wine ( Psalm104:15 ). On the spiritual level it refers to the extreme happiness with which thebeliever contemplates salvation and the bliss of the afterlife.
  • 4. express the joyous mood of believers as they encounter God. Believers rejoice because God has surrounded them with his steadfast love ( 32:11 )and brought them to salvation ( 40:16 ; 64:10 ). David rejoices that God has delivered him from the hand of his enemies ( 63:11 ). Joy is aresponse to God's word ( Psalm 119:14 ) andhis reward to believers ( Isa 65:14 ) and their strength (
  • 5. The Bible talks about happiness, but defines it differently than our culture. When the Bible mentions happiness, it is speaking of something that is self-contained. The happiness the Bible advocates isn’t dependent on circumstances.
  • 6. Ashrê is used in passages like Psalm 1, which starts, “Blessed/Happy/Flourishing is the man” (Psalm 1:1). ʾAshrê is used throughout the Psalms and Proverbs to describe the happy state of those who live wisely according to God’s design
  • 7. 1) LOVE GOD 2) LOVE YOURSELF 3) FORGIVE 4) DONT WORRY 5) FOLLOWSHIP
  • 8. 1) LOVE GOD Prov 16:20 He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
  • 9. Ps 144:15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
  • 10.
  • 11.
  • 12. There is no true joy except Christ's joy. All the supposed happiness a man fancies he can gain without Christ will prove to be as ashes, a disappointment. Do not suppose for a moment that an irreligious man can be a happy man. No man can really enjoy life without religion. Love to God purifies and ennobles every taste and every desire, intensifies every affection, and brightens every worthy pleasure. It enables men to appreciate and enjoy all that is true, and good, and beautiful. Ellen white estate.
  • 13. 2) LOVE OURSELF Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
  • 14.
  • 15. 3) FORGIVE Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
  • 16. Luke 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
  • 17. "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." It is most difficult, even for those who claim to be followers of Jesus, to forgive as Christ forgives us. The true spirit of forgiveness is so little practiced, and so many interpretations are placed upon Christ's requirement, that its force and beauty are lost sight of. We have very uncertain views of the great mercy and loving-kindness of God. He is full of compassion and forgiveness, and freely pardons when we truly repent and confess our sins. Review and Sabbath herald the duty of forgiveness
  • 18. Forgiveness is the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense, lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, forswears recompense from or punishment of the offender.
  • 19. Whether it's a spouse who was unfaithful, a parent who let you down as a child, or a friend who shared something told in confidence, we all must face the question of whether and how to forgive. After you are wronged and the initial wave of emotion has passed, you're presented with a new challenge: Do you forgive the person? By forgiving, you let go of your grievances and judgments and allow yourself to heal. While this may sound good in theory, in practice forgiveness can sometimes feel impossible.
  • 20. To learn how to forgive, you must first learn what forgiveness is not. Most of us hold at least some misconceptions about forgiveness. Here are some things that forgiving someone doesn't mean:
  • 21. Forgiveness doesn't mean you are pardoning or excusing the other person's actions. Forgiveness doesn't mean you need to tell the person that he or she is forgiven. Forgiveness doesn't mean you shouldn't have any more feelings about the situation.
  • 22. Forgiveness doesn't mean there is nothing further to work out in the relationship or that everything is okay now. Forgiveness doesn't mean you should forget the incident ever happened. Forgiveness doesn't mean you have to continue to include the person in your life. ... and forgiveness isn't something you do for the other person.
  • 23. By forgiving, you are accepting the reality of what happened and finding a way to live in a state of resolution with it. This can be a gradual process—and it doesn't necessarily have to include the person you are forgiving. Forgiveness isn't something you do for the person who wronged you; it's something you do for you.
  • 24. So if forgiveness is something you do for yourself and if it can help you heal, why is it so hard? There are several reasons: You're filled with thoughts of retribution or revenge; you enjoy feeling superior; you don't know how to resolve the situation; you're addicted to the adrenaline that anger provides; you self-identify as a "victim"; or you're afraid that by forgiving you have to re-connect—or lose your connection—with the other person. These reasons not to forgive can be resolved by becoming more familiar with yourself, with your thoughts and feelings, and with your boundaries and needs. Now that you know what forgiveness is not and why it's so hard to do, ask yourself: Do I want to forgive? Forgiveness requires feeling willing to forgive. Sometimes you won't, because the hurt went too deep, or because the person was too abusive, or expressed no regret. Do not attempt to forgive someone before you have identified, fully felt, expressed, and released your anger and pain. If you decide you are willing to forgive, find a good place and time to be alone with your thoughts. Then, try following these four steps to forgive even when it feels impossible:
  • 25. 1.Think about the incident that angered you. Accept that it happened. Accept how you felt about it and how it made you react. In order to forgive, you need to acknowledge the reality of what occurred and how you were affected. 2.Acknowledge the growth you experienced as a result of what happened. What did it make you learn about yourself, or about your needs and boundaries? Not only did you survive the incident, perhaps you grew from it. 3.Now think about the other person. He or she is flawed because all human beings are flawed. He or she acted from limited beliefs and a skewed frame of reference because sometimes we all act from our limited beliefs and skewed frames of reference. When you were hurt, the other person was trying to have a need met. What do you think this need was and why did the person go about it in such a hurtful way? 4.Finally, decide whether or not you want to tell the other person that you have forgiven him or her. If you decide not to express forgiveness directly, then do it on your own. Say the words, "I forgive you," aloud and then add as much explanation as you feel is merited.

  • 28. Matthew 6:25-33 (KJV) 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
  • 29. 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
  • 30. 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
  • 31. Mind, Character, and Personality Volume 2 : Page 466 Worry and Anxiety Worry, Not Work, Kills.--It is not work that kills; it is worry. The only way to avoid worry is to take every trouble to Christ. Let us not look on the dark side. Let us cultivate cheerfulness of spirit. Dwelling Upon the Difficulties.--Some are always fearing and borrowing trouble. Every day they are surrounded with the tokens of God's love; every day they are enjoying the bounties of His providence; but they overlook these present blessings.
  • 32. Their minds are continually dwelling upon something disagreeable which they fear may come; or some difficulty may really exist which, though small, blinds their eyes to the many things that demand gratitude. The difficulties they encounter, instead of driving them to God, the only source of their help, separate them from him because they awaken unrest and repining.-
  • 33. Worry Makes the Burden Heavy.--I greatly fear that we are in danger, by worrying, of manufacturing yokes for our necks. Let us not worry; for thus we make the yoke severe and the burden heavy. Let us do all we can without worrying, trusting in Christ. Study His words, 467 "All things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive" (Matthew 21:22). These words are the pledge that all that an omnipotent Saviour can bestow will be given to those who trust in Him.
  • 34. As stewards of the grace of heaven, we are to ask in faith and then wait trustingly for the salvation of God. We are not to step in before Him, trying in our own strength to ring about that which we desire. In His name we are to ask, and then we are to act as if we believed in His efficiency. Not the Will of God.--It is not the will of God that His people should be weighed down with care.
  • 35. Anxiety Tends to Sickness and Disease.--When wrongs have been righted, we may present the needs of the sick to the Lord in calm faith, as His Spirit may indicate. He knows each individual by name and cares for each as if there were not another upon the earth for whom He gave His beloved Son. Because God's love is so great and so unfailing, the sick should be encouraged to trust in Him and be cheerful. To be anxious about themselves tends to cause weakness and disease. If they will rise above depression and gloom, their prospect of recovery will be better; for "the eye of the Lord is upon them" "that hope in His mercy" (Psalm 33:18
  • 36. Borrowed Care and Anxiety.--In trusting in God continually there is safety; there will not be a constant fear of future evil. This borrowed care and anxiety will cease. We have a heavenly Father who careth for His children, and will and does make His grace sufficient in every time of need Undue Anxiety.--God does not condemn prudence and foresight in the use of the things of this life; but the feverish care, the undue anxiety, with respect to worldly things is not in accordance with his will.
  • 37. Christians With Anxious Hearts.--Many who profess to be Christ's followers have an anxious, troubled heart, because they are afraid to trust themselves with God. They do not make a complete surrender to Him, for they shrink from the consequences that such a surrender may involve. Unless they do make this surrender they cannot find peace.-- Do Not Cross Bridges Before Time.--Now we want to act like individuals who are redeemed by the blood of Christ; we are to rejoice in the blood of Christ and in the forgiveness of sins.
  • 38. That is what we are to do, and may God help us to get our minds off the dark pictures and think on those things that will give us light. Now I want to read another scripture, "Be careful for nothing" (Philippians 4:6). What does that mean?--Why, don't cross a bridge before you get to it. Don't make a time of trouble before it comes. You will get to it soon enough, brethren. We are to think of today, and if we do well the duties of today, we will be ready for the duties of tomorrow.

Hebrews.10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
  • 44. Our High Calling : Page 166 161. The Blessings of Christian Fellowship Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching . Heb. 10:25. Those who are of the household of faith should never neglect the assembling of themselves together; for this is God's appointed means of leading His children into unity,
  • 45. in order that in Christian love and fellowship they may help, strengthen, and encourage one another. . . . As brethren of our Lord, we are called with a holy calling to a holy, happy life. Having entered the narrow path of obedience, let us refresh our minds by communion with one another and with God. As we see the day of God approaching, let us meet often to study His Word and to exhort one another to be faithful unto the end.
  • 46. These earthly assemblies are God's appointed means by which we have opportunity to speak with one another and to gather all the help possible to prepare, in the right way, to receive in the heavenly assemblies the fulfillment of the pledges of our inheritance. Remember that in every assembly you meet with Christ, the Master of assemblies. Encourage a personal interest in one another; for it is not enough simply to know men. We must know men in Christ Jesus . We are enjoined to "consider one another." This is the keynote of the gospel. The keynote of the world is self. s
