"Nobody is happy all of the time."

Are you blessed?

If you are blessed, then you are a child of the King.

Only those who are peacemakers, full of mercy, pure in heart, and who hunger and thirst after righteousness are blessed, happy, and not just sometimes, but always.

So yes, some, a few in this world, are happy all of the time.

They do not have to try to be happy. They do not work for it. They've been given life.

All striving has ceased. Every morning they wake to a blessed new day. They always rejoice.

They don't try to do it, they cannot help but do it.

The burden (of sin) has been eternally lifted from them.

They do not pray for peace for their soul for they have the spirit of the Lord.

The Lord is peace.

He guards their minds, and God is not slack in his duties (Philippians 4:7).

Knowing him is strength, and they know him once and for all time (Psalm 28:7), and they don't need to be reminded that they know God; he is not forgettable.

He is the embodiment of what a soul longs to have, and when he fills a soul, that soul is not in need.

That soul knows peace for they know God.

So if you are one of the few, then when you hear, "Nobody is happy all of the time," then you will know that the person who speaks those words does not know the Lord.

Why would a soul not be happy all of the time when they are the righteousness of God?

Why would a soul not be happy all of the time when sin no longer rules in their heart ever again?

Why would a soul not be happy all of the time when heaven waits for them?

"Blessed (happy) are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence."
Jeremiah 17:7

Blessed, yes happy, all the time.

Is the Lord your hope and confidence?

Do you trust in him?

Upon repenting, one can trust as commanded.

Obedience (eternal life) is a gift given. 

Sin brings death (not eternal life).
 
Have you agreed with God about your sin?

If not, then you will not be happy all of the time.

Sin still rules you. Your striving has not ceased. The burdens of life are still yours.

A blessed happy life waits for those who trust that what God has said is true.

Sin keeps one bound in lies, hate, unhappiness, worry, and fear.

Those who keep on sinning are up one day, and down the next.

Singing one moment, and screaming the next.

If that describes you, then you are not happy all the time, and you are still striving.

When the onus is on you, then the burdens are heavy, and eternal happiness eludes you.

Sin, and trying not to sin, is a burden that kills and destroys (John 20:10).

That's why we are commanded to repent.

Why would you wait? Do not be deaf to truth. Agree with God.
