The Secret

…….THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…….

LET ALL THOSE REJOICE WHO PUT THEIR TRUST IN YOU; LET THEM EVER SHOUT FOR JOY. BECAUSE YOU DEFEND THEM; LET THOSE ALSO WHO LOVE YOUR NAME BE JOYFUL IN YOU.      (PSALM 5:11 *NKJV)

I received this message from one of our Christian brothers, so I thought I would share this secret with you.  May it minister to you as it has to me…..

         The Secret

One day, one friend asked another, “How is it that you are always so happy?  You have so much energy, and you never seem to get down.”

With her eyes smiling, she said, “I know the Secret!” “What secret is that?” To which she replied, “I’ll tell you all about it, but you have to promise to share the Secret with others.”

“The Secret is this: “I have learned there is little I can do in my life that will make me truly happy. I must depend on God to make me happy and to meet my needs.  When a need arises in my life, I have to trust God to supply according to HIS riches.”.

“I have learned most of the time I don’t need half of what I think I do.  He has never let me down.  Since I learned that ‘Secret’, I am happy.”

The questioner’s first thought was, “That’s too simple!”  But upon reflecting over his own life he recalled how he thought a bigger house would make him happy, but it didn’t!

He thought a better paying job would make him happy, but it hadn’t.

When did he realize his greatest happiness?  Sitting on the floor with his grandchildren, playing games, eating pizza or reading a story, a simple gift from God.

Now, you know it too!  We can’t depend on people to  make us happy.  Only GOD in His infinite wisdom can do that.

Trust HIM!  And now I pass the Secret on to you!
