How are you feeling today?
Happiness is an emotion we've all experienced before, haven't we? Isn't this the ultimate goal in life - to be happy? According to scripture, you can express your happiness through the Bible every day! Check out some of our favorites below:
"Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night."
"Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame."
"Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them."
2 Corinthians 8: 1-3
"And now, brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity."
Whether you're sad or crying for any reason, you can still connect with God to make it a bit more positive!
"Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise."
1 Peter 5:10
"And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."
"My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one."
It's okay to be angry sometimes. Connect your feelings with the lord through the mad emoji!
"Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil."
"Because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires."
"Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end."
"Get rid of all bitterness, rage, and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
Everyone gets tired at some point - except Jesus! Through scripture, you can express your fierce emotions.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
You can admit it - you're feeling under the weather. Even if you're not feeling 100, scripture will help you connect with God and hopefully make you feel better in no time!
"Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective"
Getting it, giving it - being in love or having so much love is such a gift. Thank god for giving you this feeling with some scripture below!
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."
1 Corinthians 13:13
"And now these three remain faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love."
1 John 4:18
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love."
