Happiness

Shared by Frank and Cindy May

Francis Chan, author of Crazy Love, has a way of communicating powerful truths in just a minute or two.  Here is one great short video.  You can also find this one and others on the side bar under Videos & Reading.

Jesus came that we might have life and have it abundantly…that we might be happy…that we might be free and full in Him.

If we want more happiness, we really just need more Jesus!  Jesus identifies Himself with the least of these. He says when we love the least of these, we are loving Him.  If we want more Jesus, we can be sure we’ll find more of Him in loving the least of these.

When John Mugabi came over in April, he brought with him a list of about 50 children– some orphaned, some abandoned, some off of the streets, all of them the least of these.  There are 18 children who still need to be sponsored.  You can see them on the waiting children page. (right sidebar)

This week, I came across an insightful saying.  “I need Africa more than Africa needs me.” God is using Africa in our lives to bring happiness and freedom we never even dreamed was possible, happiness that surpasses anything we have ever experienced. Yes, I need Africa, because in many ways, in Africa, I have found Jesus.
