The keys that unlock the door to happiness

The key that unlocks the door to happiness is the key of being grateful to God  for all the many things we have.  It gives us a good disposition and a demeanor of  gratitude  which  helps our frame of mind.  The other key that unlocks the door to happiness is having a thankful heart.   They go hand in hand- gratefulness and being thankful.

Everyone has hardships and unresolved problems in their life, yet as we go through them, we can still be grateful  and thankful to God.  Here are a few things we can keep in mind to be grateful and thankful for.

  1. First of all, we can be grateful and thankful for our salvation.  Being sure of going to heaven because Jesus paid our sin penalty on the cross.
  2. Secondly, we can be grateful and thankful that he  hears our prayers.  He always knows the situations we are going through and what is on our heart for our loved ones.
  3. Thirdly, it is great to know that God  is for us!  Many Christians have an unhealthy view of God as being  mad and  not happy with them.   One older lady said to me that God doesn’t have time to hear our prayers. I told her he does have the time of day for us.   He’s for us and wants us to please him by making good decisions in our life.  Knowing that God is wanting the best for us is something to be grateful and thankful for.

Put these two keys on your key chain  for more than happiness.  Gratefulness and thankfulness  bring a good attitude and  a good outlook on life.
