Happy Am I by Cindy Kane
September 20, 2014
There is a huge misconception now a days about the true meaning of happiness.  The majority of people look for happiness in relationships, in financial security, big houses, graduating from top notch universities, jobs that bring in the big bucks.  I'm sure that you've heard the saying, "You can buy anything in the world, except happiness."  Why is that?  It's because happiness doesn't come from outward commodities or relationships, true happiness comes from the Lord.
Proverbs 16:20b  "Whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he."
People will fail you, finances will eventually fail, there is no lasting satisfaction in material possessions.  Any prestige from big universities and important cushy jobs will fade with the passing of years.  God warns us about putting our trust in things and people.
Luke 12:15  "And He (Jesus) said unto them (the disciples) Take heed, and beware of covetousness:  for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth."
1 Timothy 6:10a  "For the love of money is the root of all evil."
Psalms 62:10b  "If riches increase, set not your heart upon them."
Proverbs 11:28a  "He that trusteth in his riches shall fall:"
Micah 7:5a  "Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide."
Psalms 118:8  "It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man."
Psalms 146: 3 & 5  "Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.  Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God."
Why would anyone want to put their trust in things that they know in their hearts will fail them.  And when they fail, there goes their happiness, for it was tied to the tail of those worldly things.  True happiness can only come from the Lord God.  He will never fail us!  He has promised His blessed presence along this pilgrim journey to Heaven.  He has promised His sustaining hand for the trials that come our way.  His comfort is ours for the sorrows that will befall us.  His grace upholds us when the way becomes hard to bear.  His power protects us, as He shelters us under His wings of
love.  
What are you trusting in today?  If you are placing your trust in the things of the world and expecting true happiness in return, you are going to be sorely disappointed.  
Happy Am I
 
Happy am I!  Jesus is mine forever,
Never to leave, always in each endeavor;
Leading me on, in a life ending never;
Giving a smile, every mile, Happy am I!
 
Happy am I!  All of my sins forgiven,
What a great day!  Life is now worth the living,
One of these days, I'll be enjoying heaven:
Now that I know, upward I'll go, Happy am I!
 
Happy am I!  How can I help but shout it?
Every day, telling the world about it;
Jesus is real, only believe, don't doubt it;
Then you will be, happy like me - Happy am I!

About Me

 
Cindy Kane PhotoWho I Am: Hi, my name is Cindy Kane, and I am a recent transplant from Nova Scotia. 
Recently widowed, I accepted the invitation of my son Paul and daughter-in-law Jessica to move here to Oshawa to live with them. 
Even though most people view my life as having been difficult, I can say with absolute certainty that God is good! 
Psalms 121:1 "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help." 
God has proven His faithfulness in my life many times over. I have learned over the years that God allows pain and suffering into our lives for 3 reasons: 
1. To draw us closer to Him. 
2. To conform us to His image. 
3. And so that we may take what we've learned and be a help and encouragement to others traveling the same difficult path. 
I have seen the Lord take the broken vessel of my life, and transform it to a vessel of beauty and worth, fit for His glory and use. 
Yes...My God is good!
