How happy do you want to be?

• Can we increase our joy when everything around us is falling apart? • Gods word says we can!! • Jer:15:16 16 Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart;

I Peter 3;10 For let him who want to enjoy life and see good days(good whether apparent or not) keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile.

• The first thing that most of us want to do when we have trouble is talk about it! Talk about it, talk about it, talk about it !!!!!uuuggghhh

• The beginning of strife is like releasing water; Therefore stop contention before a quarrel starts.

• 6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition ([b]definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

• Matt 12;36 • 36 But I tell you, on the day of judgment men will have to give account for every [s]idle (inoperative, nonworking) word they speak.

• Psalm 1;1 • 1 Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.

• Prov 20;19 • Gods word teaches us not to even associate with anyone who talks to freely, or is a tale bearer or reveals the secrets of another !!! Uh oh!!!

• The gossiper and the listener should both be hung one by the ear the other by the tongue!

• Wonder how many situations turn into nightmares simply because we cant • SHUT UP !!!!!!!!!!!

• How happy do you want to be? • The answer lies in how willing we are to discipline ourselves to say what Jesus would say!

• Don’t forget that we eat the words of our mouths so lets be wise enough to stop eating the poison and thinking it wont hurt us!!
