Forests look thick and rich. Vegetables produce their crops abundantly. Festivals and parties are going on here and there. Families go on their summer vacations. It is the season of God's blessing. <br /><br /> But not all people participate in the abundance of God in summer. There are people who are lonely and suffer the lack of the meaning in their life in the midst of festivity. Seeing the families who go to Florida on their summer vacation, one might feel the sense of relative depravity. In general, we are all thirsty for happiness but at times it is elusive. That is because oftentimes we try to find happiness in what we don't have. <br /><br /> As a matter of fact, happiness is sufficiently wrapped in what you already have. If God is right, the size of your possession is not the prerequisite of your happiness. Genuine happiness is embedded in the small things, in the details of the process of your life. God has put enough of happiness in every element of your daily life. He is able to turn the seemingly commonplace things into the moment of happiness as long as you get the eye to see it, the ear to hear it, and the sense to feel it. God wants you to live the life of abundance and blessings. So ask God for the eye to see it. 2 Corinthians 9:8 says, <b>"...God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work." </b> <br /><br /> God is able to make all grace abound to you. You have all sufficiency in all things at all times. And He expects you to abound in every good work to His glory. This is God's portion of true happiness. <br /><br /> Friends, I pray that you'd embrace God's perspective on your life of happiness. May this summer become the season of happiness and joy to you! </p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <h4><i>In Peace...</i></h4> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <img alt="" src="images/Pastor Steven Sig.png" style="height: auto;line-height: 100%;outline: none;text-decoration: none;display: inline;"><br> <hr> <img alt="" src="images/WesleyanImages/InNeed.gif" style="height: auto;line-height: 100%;outline: none;text-decoration: none;display: inline;"><br> <span style="font-size: 18px"><strong><em><u>For Healing, for Courage and Strength, and God&rsquo;s Mercy:</u></em></strong></span><br> <ul> <li> For Audrey Savwoir, May she have a speedy recovery from her recent surgery. </li> <li> We hold in prayer James G. who is healing from knee surgery.</li> <li> We pray for the family of Pat Balcom.
