The Journey of Preparation into Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 213: MY 20 MILE HIKE "HAPPILY EVER AFTER" AHA MOMENT
Today I took a 20 mile hike upon a rocky picturesque mountain that overlooked a beautiful still lake. As I made it down to the lake on the other side of the mountain, I sat watching the sunset. As I was reflecting on that moment in that moment I remember feeling exquisitely happy.
And God said, this is your “happily ever after”.
On the journey of preparation into singleness, marriage and intimacy with God, unlike the lies we have been told, by our fairy-tale stories, romantic novels and movies, your happily ever after is not contingent upon meeting or marrying the one. It is solely dependent on The One...You.
Your “happily ever after” is when you decide today you choose to be happy, then the next day you choose to be happy, and the next day’s forever after.
Your happiness that you choose can be doing the things you love, with someone or alone. Or it can be entertaining thoughts that create the feeling of happiness. Your happiness has no limits and no conditional prerequisites. Meaning it doesn't need to be based on a condition (event,person, place or thing). It can just be based on your decision.
Like the Apostle Paul said in Acts 26:2, “ I think myself happy”, you can make that choice everyday, no matter the circumstances.
So until tomorrow #dontworrybehappy forever and ever!
With Beautiful Love
