‘Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.
Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them.” Psalm 146: 5-6
These days we hear so many different voices telling us how to be happy. At school, at college, on the internet, on TV, or in magazines; all of these have their different take on the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ of finding happiness. You’ll often hear that to be happy we need to go on more holidays, get the latest gadget, date Mr or Mrs Perfect, buy this dress or that coat.
But none of these will ever truly bring us complete and total happiness, they are short-lived pleasures that never satisfy. We all have a ‘God-shaped hole’ in our hearts that can only be filled by God’s love. The Bible here says that to be truly happy, we need to put our hope in the Lord (and ask God to be our help).
