Daily Devotional – 2/2/18 “Choose you, this time!”

I don’t have a lot to share today but I just needed to stop by, on this Friday, to tell somebody this … Stop jeopardizing your happiness for somebody who doesn’t have the competency, the want and the need to make you happy. Yea, sure he/she can give you the quick fix type of happiness that comes from sex, a dinner date, paying a bill or answering your call/text. But what about the down in your core type happiness that has your eyes and your walk smiling. Don’t you deserve to be happy? I know you’re comfortable with them and you’ve talked yourself into believing, him/her isn’t that bad but when they are bad, it hurts you more than you can explain. Sure, when the going is good, it is really good but how often is that happening? Beloved, you’ve got to know you deserve to be happy. And you shouldn’t have to choose whether to be happy or have the bills paid or happiness over him/her being at home or happiness over just being able to say you have somebody. You can be happy without compromising your sanity. Suffering for righteousness, bible says in 1 Peter 3:14, you will be blessed. However suffering for ridiculousness, life says will break, batter, bruise and burden you down. You can change it by choosing YOU this time. Be selfish, this one time and choose you. Beloved, choose YOU because you deserve to be happy even if it means closing a door you thought you never could. “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22
