Joy, Peace, and Jesus

 

This is "Wild Bill".  I met Wild Bill in this dumpster downtown and had an great conversation with him.  He told me that at one time he had a couple of houses and drove around in a $150,000 car.  And then he realize his life was empty.  He said this to me, "Craig, I walked away from everything only to gain…everything."

He makes $20 an hour recycling stuff.  He has joy, peace, and Jesus.

He's crazy about YOU!

God is crazy about you:  He even knows how many hairs you have on your head.  Matthew 10:30
 
There are many reasons God gives glory to Himself, to appease justice, to demonstrate His sovereignty.
But one of the sweetest reasons God saved you is because He is fond of you.
He likes having you around.  He thinks you are the best thing to come down the pike in quite awhile.
 
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.  If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends flowers every spring and sunrise every morning.  Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen.
He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart...
 
Face it, friend, He's crazy about you.

Your happiness...

Things You Think Will Make You Happy? 

Common paradoxes that keep us from living our best lives. Avoid the impulses below, and you'll be primed for lifelong happiness.
-Becoming rich, powerful and famous.
-Treating God as if He were a mail-order catalog by expecting to gratify our every desire.
-Yearning for the "freedom" to achieve every last wish. This is not freedom, but being the slave of your own thoughts.
-Maliciously taking revenge on someone who has hurt you. By doing so, you become like them and poison your own mind.
-Assuming that any one thing will make you happy. Such predictions usually don't turn out to be true.
-Expecting all praise and no criticism. Without criticism, you won't progress.
-To vanquish all your enemies. Animosity never brings happiness.
-To never face adversity. Refraining from doing so will make you weak and vulnerable.
-Expending all your effort on taking care of yourself alone.
