The pursuit of happiness..

Hello again!! I have been writing in my journal SO much lately and am happy to have found the time to finally put some of it into my blog today [before I go to the beach (= haha!] GOSH I have SO much to say!!!! Can I start by simply saying that I am blessed beyond my own understanding..and to the worlds' perspective I may not look abnormally blessed but boy is that wrong. I have woken up every day in these past few weeks knowing that no matter what is to come, my joy cannot and will not be taken. Everything in this life is shaky, always changing, coming and going- materialistic things that we gain and lose, and relationships that we enter into and due to being human- are not 100% stable. Through all of this there is only one thing that is never changing- never failing, and that is the Lord. His love for us is perfect. And as I've been digging into the word lately He has been putting the word 'happiness' on my heart, so that is what I am going to share..

I was talking to a friend last night about how at times I think that people see me as a little looney..okay maybe REALLY looney haha! I am constantly smiling, constantly just in awe of what God is doing in my life..I mean, how can you not smile at that (=? Psalm 119:35 says "Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found." SO simple yet profound. Walking hand in hand along this path with the Lord, I am walking in His commands..and so often we try to do things on our own, what WE think is good for us. But do we really even know what is good for us? I think that we definitely have discernment from what is right and wrong, but in the plan making for our lives- I've learned to leave it up to the 'Big Man.' How can I think that I know better than the one who intricately designed and created me, what is best for my life? So in that, because He knows us so well, what He has in store for our lives ultimately is going to make us the happiest..People search forever for happiness and yet hardly ever find it. It's as simple as laying your own plans down before the Lord and wanting His will. The word says: "Happy are those who fear the Lord. Yes, happy are those who delight in doing what He commands." We delight in doing what He commands, because what He commands us to do ultimately brings us happiness. Haha ahhhh He loves us so much! It's a win/win situation, and really it seems too simple but that's the way He works!

I love how 1 Peter 1:8 states; "Though you do not see Him, you trust Him; and even now you are happy with a glorious, inexpressible joy." Trust that what He has planned is better than you could ever imagine for yourself..He wants you to be the happiest possible in the journey of life- that's what makes Him happy.

Breathing in His beauty with every breath (=,



  1. Oh Savannie...so great to see you writing and sharing your love for Jesus...makes my heart GLAD and brings me great joy. This is my heart's cry for all my kids, including you my dear...to hunger and thirst for your Father God, so that He can satisfy the longing of your soul, to fill the emptiness that only HE can! I love what you wrote and just know your journey and sharing it here is affecting others for God's Kingdom.
    Blessings and I look forward to my upcoming mail : )

  2. The tides breathe through you. this is a great post, savannah! I’ve been reading/studying proverbs, and the word "discernment" is so important to know and understand. You’ve framed it perfectly, here. Such an awesome gift you have (from God, of course) being able to express your faith so freely and wholeheartedly. the fear of the LORD is an amazing gift to have, share, and also to be graced with. Thank you for sharing your inspiring words.

  3. This is beautiful girl!!! I'm in love with you even more :)
