FUNCTIONING STEADILY ON CLOUD NINE - PART 1

MONDAY 18 DECEMBER 2023


Having and entertaining plenty of happiness will give you the feeling of being triggered into a pattern of confident attitude and it also increases your ability to dominate over any situation, thereby exerting commanding responses far above and beyond negative influences. This is the reason I am introducing this new topic, associated with cloud nine, which is fundamentally inspiring. More below!

Reference: Proverbs 17:22 New Century Version (NCV)

"A happy heart is like good medicine, but a broken spirit drains your strength."


Many believe that happiness is capricious, which means that its dependent on unaccountable changes of mood, mind or behaviour. Some also believe it is not always consistent, because no one can sustain a fixed pattern of its stability over time, denoting that it is liable to change. However, if happiness is unsteady and subject to sudden or unpredictable changes of mood, it is because it has not been given a careful attention and consideration.


Since many people don't have the foresight to dictate what happens next in any chapter of their lives, they easily believe that they might receive a bad news or hear something that could interrupt the flow or alter the bearing of their happiness. And it works that way for them, as a result of their belief system, which effortlessly entertains a mountain of pessimism.


Hear me, you must plan to be happy, meaning that you should entertain the presence of mind that bears happiness as a lasting fruit in your life. This is the reason, cloud nine is not just an ordinary level of happiness but a conscious level of spiritual understanding that accompanies a child of God who lives or walks by faith, not by sight.


When you make up your mind to always be on cloud nine, such decision will be established as your norm which in turn, will guide your behaviour in any situation, and reinforce your assurance of certainty, come what may. More so, the decision will increase your level of confidence when you get involved in anything worth doing; it will minimize confusion and foster your cordination around your daily or regular tasks.


What is cloud nine? To be on cloud nine is to function in a state of being extremely and overwhelmingly happy. Notice that it's not an ordinary happiness, but a perfect happiness. Basically, it's another term for being "overjoyed" according to study. Similar words are ecstatic, rapturous, joyful, beautific, euphoric, delightful, thrilled, blissful.


Being on cloud nine is all about experiencing the peak of happiness, and its possible to be sustained in an uninterrupted manner. So you are not just happy; you're constantly conscious of the Spirit of God at work in you and His lifetime supply of influential rhapsodies of expression, which positions you to show and express pleasurable gratitude in an unrestrained or heartfelt manner.


What is the advantage of being on cloud nine? It empowers you to limit your access to low-spirited perceptions and expressions, meaning that you'll stay far from depression, despondency, discomfort, plus all manner of discouragement, and for this reason, you can easily and effectively adapt to changing circumstances.


Even if you're challenged by a negative outcome, functioning on "cloud nine" grants you the ability to detach yourself from such outcome, instead of allowing it to control your life. And that level of detachment is an antidote to stressful and unpleasant feelings that accompany human response to unfavourable outcomes. Got it?


Therefore, being on cloud nine promotes positive habits, as well as the ability to practise godly values, and it will keep you far from negative habits that can hinder your progress or undermine your effectiveness in all the definite entirety of your widely applicable indulgence in desired activities. Stay tuned for part 2. Shalom!


Scripture Reading - Psalm 4:7; Psalm 30:5; John 16:22; 1 Peter 1:8-9.


Exuberant Declaration:

I function on cloud nine because I continually yield to the inner workings of the Spirit, who is my guiding light. As the Holy Spirit plays a prominent role in my life by placing me in the path of God's order, I always skip and omit the opportunity to function in a state of despondency and discouragement, which can throw the world of unhappy people into a piteous state of disorder and woebegone. Blessed be God!
