Where do our joy come from? Does it come from material things, people, awards and recognition? Does it come from a touch, an embrace, a "thank you" or "I love you?" If we really want to be truly happy in this life and have full wholeness, we must realize that true happiness and completeness comes from the Lord. "There is no substitute!" People often look to many things that this life has to offer to accomodate for the emptiness that resides internally in their hearts and not understand that, that longing and emptiness is there and only God is the one that can make "what is wrong right." I love the Lord because he first loved me and gave his son Jesus for my eternal benefit(John 3:16). If you don't have a relationship with God it is never too late. God's arms are open wide and he is willing and open to receive you into the body of Christ. All you have to do is confess, repent and turn to him and he will clean you up and make you brand new. It is at this point that you really understand and know the happiness of those who trust in the Lord!
