Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean that happiness comes automatically as part of the package.
Society tells us that happiness comes from being successful, famous, young, slim and/or attractive, but it’s an illusion. Those things don’t buy happiness. In fact, happiness is not a destination, ie you don’t reach a state of happiness and stay there forever. Rather, happiness is a choice. It comes from regularly practising good mental, emotional and physical habits which you maintain for a lifetime.
