I had a powerful conversation last week about how I am able to be so consistently happy. Yes, I am so grateful to a mother who taught me that attitude and happiness is a choice, dependent on our mind set and not our circumstances. But, the only thing that can give me the strength to choose happiness over any trial, any suffering, and any struggle, is the knowledge that He is risen. Because Christ suffered, I will return to live with God and my family again. No matter what things happen here on earth there is always something far more glorious, far more moving, and far more eternal that lies ahead – something far greater to be happy about. There is no trial that can darken the light of His love.
He is Risen.
