Happiness as by-product of Hope

Many people think they’ll be happy when something good happens to them. But it’s actually not the case necessarily. Good things tend to happen to those who are already happy. Isn’t it truer that a happy person will create a happy marriage, rather than become happy through a good marriage.

Happiness is putting the cart before the horse. Real happiness, the kind that comes from God, can only be found when we have hope–the anticipation that something good is coming. It’s the happy feeling we get when we think about the good things God has planned for our future, especially in the context of His plans for a redeemed world.
