Last night I was reading articles on Helium. They were articles that spoke to the ability to be happy. Some were good, others were alright, yet none spoke the truth. Our happiness can only be found within us when we find God in us.

Those wandering around in the world wondering how to find happiness are circling the confusion fed them. The answer is very simple. We cannot be happy if we do not seek the correct things in life. We can live the illusion of a good life. A life lived well, on the other hand, is submitted to the Creator.

We are children of a King…sons and daughters of  The King…we must seek The King, our Father. Why do we think this urging in us is not fulfilled by the things placed in front of us. Why must we seek a more profound reasoning to our lives. 

I give to you my sisters and brothers the answers to all of the questions in life, the meaning of life itself…The Lord Jesus Christ. 

Nehemiah 8:10

Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

In your weariness today, in your Google Search for Answers  ,refer to the scripture above. His joy is for you and about you. He knows you, that is why you happened this way! Start there in His joy, be strengthened by the knowledge that He Loves You. Yes you! No matter what.

Be Blessed.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
