6 Truths You Need to Know to Live a Happier, More Fulfilling Life, Pt I

Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you. ~ I Sam. 12:24

It happens. Someone calls or drops by my office and ‘needs to talk’. Usually they are confused, discouraged, heartsick, and don’t know how to fight back. So I sit on the patio (hopefully in the sunshine) and we talk. Often, one or more of these truths is at the heart of their negative feelings. Together we focus on Divine Truth and determine what matters most – feelings and fears or focused action and a sense of power and fulfillment.

“I can’t do anything right. I just feel so worthless.”

That is so not True. Within you are special gifts, talents and abilities that God placed there – just for you. Your job is to find and develop them into a gift for others. We are each here for a reason: to be a blessing and share Love, joy and peace with everyone we meet. You are part of the divine  puzzle called Life, a necessary and valued piece of God’s creation.

TRUTH #1: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of
evil, to give you an expected end. (Jer. 29:11)
Take some time to think about your talents and abilities. What can you do to improve them? Who might benefit from your wisdom and knowledge? Don’t be afraid to explore possible new pathways of blessing and prosperity.

“Nobody loves me. Why am I even here?”

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over years of dealing with grieving families, it’s that somebody loves you. They may get mad or upset about an incident, or even about your lifestyle, but they still love YOU. Now, here’s the bonus: You can change your attitude and lifestyle … and even more people will love you! Don’t ever undervalue yourself. God doesn’t. Your friends don’t.

TRUTH #2: Behold, what matter of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the
sons of God … (I John 3:1)
Remind yourself often that, “God loves me. I am His favorite child.” You must be – because He sent Jesus to get you! Pretty awesome trade, don’t you think? Now, activate the Law of Sowing &
Reaping. Sow love and you’ll get love in return!

“I’m so alone. I don’t have any family or friends.”

Your head may try to tell you that, but it is NOT True. There are dozens of places you can go to get involved with other people – church, volunteer organizations, civic and social groups, clubs, etc. Yes, you have to leave your house/apartment/room. Alone is a choice you are making. And only you can change the thoughts you think and the choices you make.

TRUTH #3: And the LORD God said, It is not good that man should be alone; (Gen. 2:18) Where-fore,
comfort yourselves together, and edify one another … (I Thess. 5:11)
God never intended us to be alone; He expected us to stay connected … to Him (Jesus is the vine, we are the branches) and to other people. Get involved and reap a harvest of friends and activities.
