We’re kicking 2018 with a look at one of life’s most basic questions: How can we be happy? And two things are clear about this. First, we are designed and commanded to be happy. Second, happiness is just plain hard to come by. For the next few weeks I want to try to bridge this conundrum. God has so much to say about our happiness and he deeply desires that we would, even on earth, experience profound levels of joy and delight. So let’s pray for open hearts and for the Holy Spirit to pour into us the truth of God the next few weeks.
