Hello and a happy new year to you all.
How can we get a happy new year?, a happy life? or just be content.
As a Christian I believe that true happiness comes from God.
You and me, all of us were made for a purpose, God has a plan and a purpose for each and every one of our lives, it is up to us to find that purpose and live out our lives as God wants us to.
That does not mean life is going to be boring or doing things we all hate doing. As a biker one of the best things for me to do is to ride my motorcycle. An early part of my life was riding with The Christian Motorcyclists Association in the UK. I was a member for over 20 years and I travelled all over the UK and places in Europe to be with fellow bikers.
I got into some good conversations with non Christian bikers and shared my beliefs with them as well as serving them through Holy Joe's Cafe, a Cafe set up at bike rallies in a big tent to serve as a place where people could come if they wanted somewhere to sit without alcohol or a friendly place.
Now I live in Romania, helping people through a Romanian registered charity, after God called my wife and I to move here full time and work amongst the people. God has given us a great love for the people and the country of Romania and we regard this to be our home now. Who knows, God might call us on to somewhere else.
Having said all of the above, you might be called to stay at home and do what you are doing. How do you further the kingdom of God? Ask God what it is He wants you to do, either where you are or in another place, what ever it is if you are fully following and serving Him you WILL enjoy it and that makes for a happy time. He said He came to give is life and life more abundantly so find your niche in His kingdom and have a happy new year/life.
