Best-selling author Alli Worthington encourages Christian women to combat today’s culture of busyness, stress and fear by inviting in God’s best, most peaceful life, in her new book, The Year of Living Happy.
Worthington, author of Breaking Busy and Fierce Faith, told The Christian Post that while “dark seasons” in life are inevitable, they can quickly wreak havoc on both our personal and spiritual lives. But God has a greater vision for His children: As Christians, we should be the “happiest people out there,” she said.
“Throughout Scripture, God continually tells us to be happy,” she said. “We see commands such as ‘rejoice,’ ‘do not be afraid,’ ‘be of good cheer,’ ‘give thanks.’ The only reason happiness we’ll ever have is living a life seeking God. When we follow His commands, we find the true recipe for happiness.”
In The Year of Living Happy, Worthington offers practical steps women can take to cultivate true happiness — a word she defined as a “feeling of connection and contentment” — in their lives.
“For every person, two things lead to a happy life: Contentment and connections,” she explained. “Contentment means choosing to be grateful for the blessings God has given you and mindful of the beauty around you. Connections means maintaining a relationship with God and investing in those around you.”
Every woman, she said, has an “inner critic” who continually tells them they aren’t enough; that…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
