Happiness and blessings. Exactly what do those mean?

To be happy is to be blessed.  We all are blessed, so why isn’t everyone happy? We’re all blessed, but many people don’t think in those terms.  Therefore, they don’t recognize their blessings.  Additionally, many people view blessings as supplements to religion, are inattentive to the actions behind them, and don’t consider their source.

According to Webster’s American 1828 Dictionary of the English Language, blessed is defined as “Happy; prosperous in worldly affairs; enjoying spiritual happiness and the favor of God; enjoying heavenly felicity.”  The definition demonstrates secular and spiritual aspects of being blessed but emphasizes the latter.  Most likely, this emphasis is significant because we cannot have an exclusive temporal existence. Moreover, God, who is spirit, created the world and everything in it.  Therefore, God’s spirit resides in this sphere.

People frequently associate happiness with the fulfillment of wants and desires.  If things go our way or we get what we want, we are happy.  Perhaps living under this Boolean expression is why many people aren’t happy.

Imagine what it would be like to live constantly blessed and happy no matter what your conditions.  Read my posts to understand happiness and learn the truth about blessings so you can live abundantly with both!
