I’m a very happy guy, and my main goal these days is to try to encourage others to be happy. Yes, there is evil and suffering in this world, and if we focus on it, we are very likely to develop a keen sense of hopelessness.
On the other hand, if we focus on the good things in our lives, we can be encouraged and carry on with the things God has prepared us to do. I am firmly convinced our lives have purpose, and to accomplish that purpose we must focus on it.
We will all leave this earthly life one day, and my hope is when you and I do so, we will depart with joy in our hearts, and be able to say, “It is finished,” knowing we did what God put us here to do.
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30
