Ever meet people that are just happy all the time?  I have this buddy Eric Porter that is just happy all the time.  Now, you would not know it to see him, but  he lives in a very small place with extremely meager means.  The TV gets 2,4, and 9…until it goes digital…then he is all messed up.  But he is happy.  Every time I drop by to see him,..he is reading the bible.  I have been by there early morning before he goes to work, been by there after work….been there at night…been there during the weekend.  He is in the word of God.  This cat has lead more people to Jesus Christ than almost anyone I have ever known.  He has an easy style and mannerisms and is……….well, happy….all the time. 

He finds his joy in the Lord.  His life is not complicated.  He does not worry about anything.  He just prays and thanks God….and is happy.  This is scriptural you know?  Jesus Christ came to set the captives free.  He came that we might have life and have it abundantly.  He came so that we would be saved from death.  Jesus was happy too. 

You not as happy as you would like to be?  Meditate, soak into this scripture and don’t worry…be happy.  Just be like Eric Porter.  Happy.  It is a decision.
