"How can I be happy?" L-O-V-E is the answer biblically and in all other ways.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
Who do you love? Your list is probably not that unusual and likely includes family and friends. Did you remember to put God on the list? Where does he rank? Obviously, who you love isn't typically thought of the same way you'd talk about your top ten favorite movies. Yet when you do focus on the importance of loving God, it changes things.
You want it all to turn out O.K. Romans 8:28 is scripture about how important a loving spirit is to be able to live a good life, one of purpose. Happy endings are your destiny, don't worry. Only God Knows how it will turn out, and for those who believe in Him, it turns out well.
