I have heard this from several in here telling that we arent to be happy thats not part of the plan. Well if thats not part of the plan then why in scripture does it say "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart" I guess I am just confused about this because I always was taught that your happiness in life depended on your realtionship with the Lord. I dont know I guess I am just confused with all of this. I am usually a very happy person and before the walls came tumbling down with everything I went through I used to love life and live every day to the full, now I am being told in here that its not about happiness and living life to the full and I have always been taught we are to live our lives for Him and He will provide the joy even in the midst of our trials. So now swaying almost 20 years of teaching am I wrong? No bashing, no judging please, I am just throughly confused with all of this.
