In God's glorious presence, all our concerns and griefs will be erased. It's hard to imagine how we can be happy if our loved ones aren't in Heaven because of their unbelief, but Scripture assures that 'even the memory of them will disappear(Psalm 9:6 TLB).
You see, one day God showed me something very important. He let me know that my bitterness and blaming myself for so many things was of my own doing. He showed me that I could shed all my doubts and hurts from the past, God can do that for you too. He wants you to be happy, and if you'll only trust Him, He can work a miracle in your life, just as He did mine.
Faith important for living happy in an unhappy world? Just try living one day in this chaotic world without it, and you are on your way to the nut house. Faith is the fabric that clothes the heart, soul, mind and body with old fashioned, overflowing, heaven sent happiness.
The meaning of life in western secular society is to be successful. So many people are success mad and they are encouraged to reach for something and have so called 'worthwhile goals'. Money, fame, power, good looks, possessions are the indicators of success and the media and advertising companies exploit this. People are conditioned to believe that they can only feel happy or good about themselves if they have these things. This of course is not true.
