What's lacking in your life? What faults do you resist? Would you truly be happy if there was nothing amiss?
Okay, I'll spare you my pitiful near-rhymes. But hopefully I've got you thinking about the things that prevent you from being happy. If something doesn't go your way, if the unexpected occurs, can you keep your joy? Or is it contingent upon your life following a predictable, comfortable pattern? This is the message that I've been praying over all week:
"Anything you think you need to be happy, the enemy can use against you."
