God did not choose for us to be unhappy. It is not a good advertisement for life lived as a Christian. Who want to join with people who go around with grump or gloomy faces. God wants us to be joyful Christians. People will want to be with you and find out what makes you able to live in this way. Be a happy Christian.
Amazing God, you want our lives to be happy and fruitful. You want the face we turn to the world to draw others to you. Help us to live this out. AMEN
