Let me infuse your mind with a HAPPY THOUGHT. This will be a thought good for more than just a moment. It is good for eternity Psalms 55:22b says, "... he will never let the righteous fall ...". To get in on God's good "graces", get in on his right side - his righteous side. God will not let the righteous fall in life or in death. Whether we live or die, everything will turn out all right. Now, that is a HAPPY THOUGHT.
God's right side is found by being in God's family - having Jesus as our Lord (elder Brother) and God as our Heavenly Father. Attaining this position is accomplished by a belief that Jesus is God's Son and an on-going faith in what he says coupled with obedience to him. We are baptized because of our belief into God's grace where forgiveness of sin is present. We are given a new life - behold all things are new. (II Cor. 5: 17-21) We are on God's right side now. Now we can let our mind entertain many HAPPY THOUGHTS as we look at all of God's promises to his children. Also, now comes the joy of growing and learning how to keep on God's right side - how to yield our ways to his ways which are righteous ways indeed.
It is indeed a HAPPY THOUGHT that we are in God's care because we belong to him.
