I think that everyone in life just wants to be happy. At least thats what I want. And I hope that I can be. I was pondering this a lot this last week and while doing so I came across a scripture that I really enjoy.

Mosiah 4: 10-12:

10 And again, believe that ye must repent of your sins and forsake them, and humble yourselves before God; and ask in sincerity of heart that he would forgive you; and now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them.
11 And again I say unto you as I have said before, that as ye have come to the knowledge of the glory of God, or if ye have known of his goodness and have tasted of his love, and have received a remission of your sins, which causeth such exceedingly great joy in your souls, even so I would that ye should remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility, calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come, which was spoken by the mouth of the angel.
12 And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the love of God, and always retain a remission of your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true.

Okay its pretty long but look at the underlined part. I was reading this and I thought it was great but then I got to the underlined part and was taken back. I read that and thought "WAIT, what can I do that will allow me to ALWAYS rejoice?!?" So I read back and read the things and compiled a list of things to do that will make us happy. I think that when we read the scriptures we all get different things out of it, so I don't want to share my list with you... but I encourage you to make your own! And continue to look for ways to be happy in the scriptures.

I know that the Book of Mormon really does bring true happiness into our lives. It will cause us to rejoice everyday!
