VerseD: Matthew 8:10

When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who followed him, “Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith.
Matthew 8:10, ESV

The Lord so enjoys and loves when a person shows faith through word and action, when a person turns from sinfulness and trusts His plan.

You want to make God happy? Believe His promises and obey His commands.

VerseD: Psalm 119:2

Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart,
Psalm 119:2, ESV

True happiness is found in knowing and obeying God and His Word. Make this your driving passion in life. All else is secondary.

VerseD: Romans 4:7

“blessed are those whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, and whose sins have been covered.”
Romans 4:7, NASB

Blessed – Happy, joyous, elated, grateful – are those who have realized their own wretchedness before a holy God and also realized the grace and forgiveness He offers through the cross of Christ.

Happy New Year 2019!

2018, amiright?

Another full year has come and gone.

My wife and I moved from ever sunny, ever hot Phoenix to a cooler (and currently snowier!) climate.

There were many new Adventures. Some are still growing.

I started a youth group for a small local church. I am getting ready to (hopefully sooner than later, at this point) to launch a mobile coffee cart! (Look for “Bean Adventurer Coffee”!) I am writing A LOT! (Though this blog took a small hit. But …)

Jesse finally started contributing here, though YouTube has not received an update this year. Moving and lacking access to editing software hurt that. But hopefully more is coming soon!

In all things, God is good. All the time.

May you receive an abundance of bunches of blessings this year. And though life may take some effort to trudge through, fall on the promises of God, this year and always.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24‭-‬26 ESV

In His Love,

Daniel

VerseD: Mark 8:34-35

And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.
Mark 8:34‭-‬35, ESV

God’s primary concern is not our happiness and comfort in this life.

God’s primary concern is His glory through the salvation of His people. That frequently takes sacrifice and suffering, as our greatest example (Jesus) gave us through the cross.

VerseD: Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17, ESV

By the Holy Spirit Christ lives within us. We join in the celebration of the redeemed, basking in the glory of the One who saves and loves us with gladness and singing.

As my mother-in-law says, happy people sing. And our heavenly Father is happy to save!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13, ESV

Whatever you may be going through, good or bad, joyful or miserable, and however it all makes you feel, may you find the true happiness and joy of God today.

how happy You make me

how happy You make me
i do not want to say
Your joy You give to me
every single day
goes beyond mere feelings
to a point beyond words
though i do still have feelings
that are never forced
the things that i do feel
joy and love complete
make me ask if You feel
how happy You make me
