Mosiah 2:41 -- On Never Ending Happiness

"And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it."
Mosiah 2:41

Never-ending happiness is a pretty cool concept, and I love the fact that it is something that we can really have. :)  ... I think that sometimes we don't consider the truth here because it is difficult to see past our own challenges, or to understand God's timing.  And yet, if this is true (and it is), everything bad that happens to us will just turn into joy over time... part of faith in God is faith in that happy ending that he promises.  Also, trusting in the happy ending doesn't mean just suffering until then.  Because we already know that things will work out for the best in the end, that helps us to be happy now as well.

Being blessed in *all* things is another amazing promise, and another one we overlook sometimes because we are busy paying attention to things that we don't like.  When we really examine our lives, we find that even the hard things were huge blessings, designed to help us learn and grow into a potential that is greater than we can really comprehend.

Today, let's remember how good it is when we keep the commandments, and how blessed we are.  *Everything* goes better with God.  Let's not gum up our lives with sin and risk that happiness and guidance from God, who is always leading us to something great.
