Food and Happiness

I like food (one look at me and you know) and I like happiness. Apparently, so did C.S. Lewis…

“God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about [Him]. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.” —(From Mere Christianity)

O taste and see that the Lord is good. Feast with joy…!

One thought on “Food and Happiness”

  1. I hardly recognize the me I am now that I know Jesus. My happiness thru and thru now instead of by the moment. I asked to serve and I’ve been given life.
