We can let life and trouble, rob us of our hope or we can keep believing that where we are, isn’t always where we are going to be. We can look at our life and be dissatisfied, and that’s OK! Whatever it is that is making you unhappy, person, place, lack, need, relationship- lack of…it’s alright.
You can acknowledge it, acknowledge how you feel about it and that’s fine. The thing is; You don’t have to stay there. You don’t have to stay there in feeling, in that negative emotion. I see a lot of people say that they’ll be happy once they ______.
Why wait to be happy?
Life is happening right now. Don’t you want to live it?
The word says that we can have joy in the midst of sorrow. We can choose what we want to focus on, we can choose to let ourselves be consumed in negativity or we can make peace with things and focus on the positive. It really can come down to choice and how you respond to situations, events, people and negativity.

We can let it change our whole mood or we can just accept things as what they are and move on.
The only way to get something different – you have to do something different.
It may seem like an impossible situation but you have to have faith and believe that things will be different. That something better is ahead for you.

You have to have faith and faith is all you need. Have faith that God will make a way for you out of your mess. Know that if you let go and give it to God, take your hands out and trust him…he will bring you there, he will deliver you, he will keep his promises.
Remember though, faith without works is dead, which means that you have to walk towards your destiny as well. You can’t just sit and pray and expect it to fall on your lap. You take a step, without even seeing the whole staircase..just one step and God will make sure each time your foot goes out…it finds another step.

A step out of that place that you couldn’t even imagine getting out of. It can and will happen. Just have faith, believe and know that God doesn’t want you to be unhappy or see you suffer and that you don’t have to! There is a way, even if you think there isn’t.
In the meantime, do things that make you happy. Only be around those who build you up. Chose not to let the negativity around you consume you. Forgive and love people as they are and never stop believing.

I’m adding this video, it’s one of my favorites. Listen to the message…

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

2 Corinthians 5:7
We live by faith, not by sight.

James 2:17
Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead
