Do You Believe that You CAN be Happy?

Do you believe that you can be happy?
Does it ever enter your mind that you can live a life where you can be at peace with yourself and others?
Have you allowed fear, depression, anxiety or the other ills of this life cause you to feel completely hopeless?

Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; it will be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was restored to health at that very hour. Matthew 8:13 (AMP)
What do you believe?  Do you believe that you are supposed to feel down?  Do you feel that you are supposed to be hopeless?  Do you believe that depression is your life?  In my post Do You Want to Be Happy?, I cover why these feelings, while we experience them, that is all that they are meant to be experiences.  These experiences build you, they are not irrelevant.
It's time that you believe that you can be happy!  It is God's desire that we live happy lives, even if we don't feel happy every day.  We have the capability in God to live in peace while all of hell is breaking loose around us.  The question is, "do you believe that you can and that He will do this for you?"
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.  Ephesians 3:19-21 (KJV)
This scripture teaches us that God can do so much more than what we can ever ask and think according to the power that worketh in us.  That power is our belief!  Do we believe that God wants us happy?  If you have a child or a pet or a loved one, do you want them to be happy?  Usually you do and will do whatever it takes to keep them happy.  You can't assure that every day will be happy because realistically, happiness is not permanent, it is a feeling and feelings change.  On the days that you can't provide their happiness, you can see to their peace and contentment.  god-is-dnm
The fruit of God's Holy Spirit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.  You can experience all of this on your worst day with the love of God in your heart.  Don't settle for another unhappy day.  You don't have to accept it.

You DON'T have to live in a depressed state!  You CAN be HAPPY!

You just have to BELIEVE!
