Want To Be Happy? Give Your Life Away
BY RICK WARREN — FEBRUARY 6, 2016



God wired the universe so that happiness does not come from status, salary, sex, or success. Happiness comes from service. God designed you to be happiest when you are giving your life away. Why? Because he wants you to become like him. It’s all about love!

    I am always happier when I'm giving service to God and helping other people. One of my jobs was to work in a hospital being a Nursing Tech. If you know anything about that, you know that is at the bottom of the todem pole. I did nothing but wait on
    my patients. I took their temps, fed them all three meals, because I worked 12 hour
    shifts. We went in to work at 6:00 AM & left at 6:15 PM. I hope you can understand all of this. We took lunch at 11:00 - 12:00, but we didn't have to clock out. So we
    still got paid for 12 hours and 15 minutes. So that's also how I gave service to God!
    I hope you have a Blessed Day on the Lord's Day! LYL!

    I have found this to be true .......... I think it is hard to be genuinely happy if living "for oneself." ........ emoticon

    I have always been happier when I am helping others and giving of myself. The most recent times is when I spend 10 minutes at a time/4 times a day massaging my husband's legs and feet. Although, that has ceased, the bonding time is there. Now, I know longer have to do that, but still, our times together are always special. His health has improved tremendously due to the prayers. God is healing him gradually. emoticon

    It is definitely rewarding to help and service, as much as we can, others that are in need.
