a fresh wind blew upon my heart 2012My heart was touched by God today. His touch, his word, is like a fresh wind blowing upon my heart. There was a certain peace that covered me, calming my nerves, giving me strength, giving me the courage to face whatever life might bring upon me.

For the first time in a long time, I was not afraid. My joy and my peace were not dependent anymore on outside circumstances that I could not control. God is in control. And faith, is a very precious gift. I felt good, I saw beauty again, like I was in love.

I’ve read tons of self-help books before, yet I remained stressed and unhappy, always preoccupied with something – a goal. Only to be always frustrated by not reaching that goal.

I saw how futile all my strivings were. I didn’t want to live like that anymore. I’ve decided not to live like that anymore. I will not delay my joy, my peace.

I used to think we cannot choose happiness, that only hypocrites say that. But now I’ve found a way. We choose happiness when we finally choose to SURRENDER. We choose happiness when we finally choose GOD.
