We are usually....

only happy when we get what we want or things go the way we want them to, right? 

Like (For example) if you really wanted a Jamie Grace : )
and your mom said "no", you wouldn't jump up and down and say "Yay!" (Not that you would even if you could get it!)

Or, for a more serious example, there was a tornado that tore apart your town, and home. You wouldn't really have the urge to smile and thank God for the tornado, and be happy!

Of course, i wouldn't expect anybody (Including myself) to be happy if my hometown had been torn apart.

But, just know that through the hard times God is just making you and your faith stronger!  And just always thank Him for what you do have!


Verses to look up:

Psalms 7:17
    and

1 Thessalonians 5:16, 17, 18


BTW, i used NIV!

Here's a song i love!!!!
