Job 8:21 -- On Long-Term Happiness

"Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing."
Job 8:21

This is a good reminder today that God isn't done helping us until we're happy.  That doesn't mean we can set artificial bars to our happiness and extort blessing from him, but it does mean that God *wants* to do everything he can to bring to pass our overall, lasting happiness.  That doesn't mean a winning lottery ticket in most cases, and sometimes it means chastisement and correction.  Those are things that help us with our long-term happiness and not our immediate happiness.  As always, God takes the long view, and because he does, we can be sure that Eternity will be amazingly awesome. :)

Today, let's remember that God is all about our happiness, and if we can tune into his spirit in our lives, we can feel of his love and learn from him how to be happier.
