If Your Happy and You Know It

We’ve talked several times at Hope Chapel about happiness.  We’ve hit on things like “Just because you have Jesus in your life, everything in life won’t always be hunky dory.”  I’ve read posts and articles about how God never promised happiness or cares about our happiness.  It is true that God really just wants us…
