Our happiness is NOT about us. We are not able to control our circumstances, its God's will. We have the opportunity to decide where and how we are going to apply God to our life situations, but we need to remember that our purpose is to praise him, not to be happy. God has let us be happy through His grace. In order use this gift of happiness we must remember to not let others influence the way we feel, when we let others influence us our happiness is beyond our control.
In class we talked about happiness and marriage. The right of happiness plays a large role in how a marriage will work, happiness in a marriage is our choice. If we do not get up each and every day and make the decision to to happy and stay happy and in love, then we wont. Love leads to a marriage and you continue to love your spouse because you are married and happiness follows. However, we need to be careful about entering into an unfaithful marriage. An unfaithful marriage can lead to unfaithfulness in other areas of our lives such as work, friends, and school. We need to use our 'right to happiness' with caution.
