Being Happy

January 20, 2013

 

"It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness."  ~ Charles Spurgeon

  1. What did I hear or experience today that was most impactful?  What, if anything, am I feeling compelled to do as a result?
  2. What did I learn and experience about happiness and joy growing up? How has that shaped who and how I am today?
  3. A point made in today's message is that the joy is different than, and not dependent upon happiness. Have I ever experienced joy when I wasn't happy? What was that experience like for me?
  4. What are the biggest obstacles to a consistent experience of joy in my life?  What might God be calling me to do as a next step to overcoming those obstacles?
