6 Bible Verses About Happiness That Can Get You Through Even The Roughest Of Days

6 Bible Verses About Happiness That Can Get You Through Even The Roughest Of Days

There is so much joy in the world; you need to enjoy it.


If your life is anything like mine, it comes with a lot of busy work and stress. However, within everyone's lives - no matter how busy or stressful - it is important to take a step back and look at all the happiness in the world.

Sometimes that can be hard; sometimes that happiness is not a direct object or person to look at. Happiness can be as simple as singing along to your favorite song on the radio. Ultimately, happiness can be reading words off of a page in a book while sitting outside in a quiet area. Everyone has their own happy place; they just need to relax and find it.

Psalm 19:8


The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living.

Psalm 119: 1-3


Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord.
Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts.
They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths.

Romans 15:13


I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

James 1: 2-4


Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

2 Corinthians 6:10


Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and yet we have everything.

Psalm 30:11


You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy.

Anyone can and will encounter obstacles in life. What matters is the end results after those obstacles are over. Life is stressful, there are times when it feels like nothing is going the way you want it to. However, all you need to do is take that step back and find that happy place. Read a few bible verses and escape the reality even if it is just for a few minutes.

If you focus on all the positive and happy aspects of the world, it is easier to be a happy person. By allowing yourself to breathe and focus on your happiness, there will be a better outlook and end result to any obstacle you may come across.

There is always a rainbow after a storm.

Here's To Those Who Strive For Difference

It can be hard to break some molds, but there's never been a better time than now to start.


Difference. It's the single most divisive concept in our society. Being "different" is labeled a bad thing all too often.

But it isn't.

The difference is one of the most treasured concepts as well. If we all followed in the same footsteps, the same molds, it would be all too easy to lose sight of the fact that we aren't all the same — not even close.

I've made myself into a poster child for being different over the past few years, and it has been the best thing that I've ever done. Like many of you, I grew up in a situation where being different was looked down upon. I spent many years through middle and into high school trying to check all the boxes of the things I thought I was missing to be "normal." I changed the way I dressed (anyone who knew me in middle school, OUCH!), the way I acted, and the way that I looked at my time at school. I was never the best student or athletic type. I never played football like most of my friends, and only played rec-league basketball to humor my parents.

Compared to most of the guys I grew up with, I was an outcast. I was different. I couldn't relate to anything about them. And I hated that. I wanted to be like the "cool kids" who always had fun and were never spending Friday nights at home with my family. I tried so hard to break change who I was that I completely forgot it.

My time in college (or rather, college-aged) has been a roller coaster ride. I began my collegiate life at another university and fell into a deep mental hole trying, once again, to make myself into someone and something that I just wasn't. I loved the classes in my major, but everything else just became a slip-n-slide downhill. I lost sight of being different there, and it hurt badly.

It took a culture shock for me to realize just how important being different is. I spent most of my life simply trying to make myself into something I wasn't. I never truly developed a sense of self-identity because I was too busy trying to imitate someone else's. When I left my first school, I threw myself headlong into a totally new environment — the working world. I'm the youngest one in the office, the least senior in my position, but compared to a year ago, I'm in such a better place. I took the various images I wanted to see myself in and threw them away.

I've set myself up on a new path, very much a different one, but that's OK.

Be different. Try new things, don't be satisfied with the status quo. One of the great things about being in college is the freedom to break all the molds you want. Meet new people, try new things, find something that makes you happy, and run with it. Don't ever try to be who you're not — because who you are is awesome, just the way you are.
