Happiness to me is to feel fulfilled in all areas of my life. Each area brings it's own happiness. I am happy eating a great meal. I am happy when I am using my mind and learning something new. But for me, true happiness comes from knowing the answers to the big questions.....answers that the world''s smartest men may never know...Why am I here?....What is life all about and What happens after we die? All the answers to these questions can be found in the top selling book of all time. The Bible. God says this information is available to everyone.

You don't have to be a bible scholar or have a great intellect to know the answers. You know what God has to say about those who are looking for answers with their intellect only and not with their heart? 2 Timothy 3:7,,,He says they are, "ever searching and never coming to the knowledge of the truth". The only way to find the answers is to search for them with all your heart and soul. On the day you do that, you will find God and you will know.

Deuteronomy 4:29 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)

29But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

Hi Eve! What a great thought. We do know the answers to the big questions don't we. Love your perspective. Have a great day!

Edie said...

Hi Eve - You're funny. God has just spent the last three years trying to make me understand that He is the one who made me to be CREATIVE and how "In His Image" that is.

Thanks so much for chiming in! I'm loving the responses I'm reading.

Hi Eve. Today the Lord spoke to me in a dream and told me that when you pray big things happen. Of course when I immediately got up I had to go to your blog and see if there were any posts about you being a prayer warrior or the like. I came across your post on your healing and how you joined a prayer chain and started praying for others. I wanted to encourage you in your giftedness "per say" and let you know that your prayers reach heaven, are heard, and are very affective. I believe you are a great woman of faith.

I would ask you to (selfishly of course:) pray for me and my healing. I'm not sure if you've read my blog regarding my story or not but I feel like I have made progress but have not in the way on my physical fatigue and a few other areas. Lately my limitations have started to depress me. I will add I have felt depressed for a few days and close to a week. I would covet your payers.

I love to pray and I feel like I am a prayer warrior per say but in the state of my physical health when I pray and believe on others behalf too much it drains me physically. I don't like this because I have a heart of compassion and love to pray for others. I do believe that my prayers are affective but I have to be careful not to pray too often as this will drain me physically. I don't know if you have had this experience or not.

Thanks for letting me tell you my story and I would covet any prayers that you would pray.

Nicole, I just read your story. I'm so sorry. That is a lot on have on our plate at your young age. I will be happy to pray for you. I will also put your name on my prayer chain.

My prayer chain

Nicole said...

Thank you so much Eve for praying and putting me on your prayer chain. I do believe that I make things too difficult. I need to get back to the faith of a child. I want to just live and be and live and be and relax in the process. Thanks for the reminder!

Hi Eve,

Thanks for paying a visit to my blog. It's so nice to meet you!

I enjoyed this post. While I may not know the answers to ALL the big questions ("Why are children allowed to suffer?" etc.) I DO know the one who has all the answers. And best of all, I TRUST Him.


Eve said...

I guess I should have qualified that by saying, I know the answers to the big three questions that people ask all the time. Of course, no one but God knows all the answers.
But Mama told me, "Knowing all the answers is not important, it is knowing where to look and who to go to for the answers, that matters."

There are so many answers in the Bible. It's interesting to find that most people would rather read a devotional book than to just pick up the BIBLE and read. I guess it's an acquired taste. The more you read it, the more you crave it. :)
