“DO YOU TAKE HAPPY PILLS?” That’s the question my co-worker asked me in response to my cheerful greeting this afternoon at work. The question took me by surprise, and I prayed a lightning-fast prayer for God to give me the right answer. “I sure do!” I responded. That got her attention. As a very quizzical look came over her face, I explained: “Every morning I take one Happy Pill. It’s called the Bible, God’s Word. I open it, read it, see how much He loves me and realize that I can trust Him again today. THAT’S my Happy Pill.”
When I got back to my desk, I looked at the verse I have on a 3×5 card placed between my keyboard and my monitor. It is Psalm 28:7, which says: “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song I will praise Him.” Along with the Psalmist, I can testify that happiness is a result of trusting in God. Trust Him for what? For everything. The more I trust, the happier I am!
Happy Pill, anyone?
