Thing That Makes Me Happy: #51
Yesterday’s Thing That Make Me Happy was pre-empted by the start of the month and my April Goals, so I hope you don’t mind the change in programming.
Today is Good Friday and on Sunday, it is Easter, so I thought it would be perfect timing to tell you all about how Jesus makes me happy. I became a Christian late in high school, after a very, VERY long coming-to-Christ period. A lot of people want to tell you that if you become a Christian, your life will be perfect. You will never be upset about anything. Absolutely everything will always work out in your favor. You will start pooping rainbows and butterflies and it will smell like roses. Everyone in the entire world will always do everything you want and that you will always speak softly and sweetly to everyone and life will be awesome.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that doesn’t happen.
What does happen is that bad shit still happens, but there is always always someone (God) there to help me, guide me, support me and love me no matter how sucky I screw things up (and boy do I screw things up sometimes). Even if you don’t believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior (and I didn’t either for a long time), he was still amazing and intelligent and had a lot of really great things to say about how to help mankind being better. It makes me happy that I have such a wonderful and amazing God that I can rely on at any time.
He is Risen!
