STOP AND THINK – Happiness consists not in having, but of being, not of possessing, but of enjoying. It is the warm glow of a heart at peace with itself. (Norman Vincent Peale, “Positive Thinking” author)
What you are is more important than what you have, but what you have can make you happy if you learn to use it with joy. The happy person is content with who he is, rather than envying someone else. And even more importantly, he will have lasting joy if he finds peace, not only with himself, but with God.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him. (Romans 15:13)
