Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers.Psalm 1:1 (NRSV)
Happiness comes from God alone.
We will never feel fulfilled by worldly desires yet we always find ourselves focused on the world instead of God.
Sometimes we may follow the path of sinners in order to feel included. But with God, we will never have to fight to be heard or understood. He gives us attention and love freely without us even asking. God longs for us to be happy while people long for their own happiness.
Trust in God and pursue him. The happiness He has in store for us is beyond what we can achieve or even imagine.
