, by Michael Kelly
God wants you to be happy even more than you want it for yourself.
Imagine how frustrated God is with us, seeing all that is possible and knowing how we squander so much. But he will not cross that line. He will not step over your free will. God wants to empower you for mission. He has put you in this world for a specific mission, but first he has to prepare you.
God wants heaven for you more than you want it for yourself.
When we resist happiness, we resist God and the-very-best-version-of-ourselves. To resist God is to resist our very truest selves. When we resist happiness we place a barrier between ourselves and God, a barrier between ourselves and the wonderful life God has dreamed for us before we were in our mothers’ wombs.
It’s time to stop resisting happiness. It’s time to slay resistance.
