The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and be glad... But after the three and a half days, a breath of life from God entered them....

Humans usually have this wheel mentality, sometimes you're up, sometimes you're dow. When you're sad now, you'll be happy later. When you're happy now, you're bound to be sad later. Sometimes we even warn people not to lough too much because they might end up crying later. It's some kind of weird "karma" thing that we all believe in, whether we say it out loud or not.

We let this thought invade for a while that we eventually became afraid of being happy. We always wary whenever we felt that we were happy because we thought that something or someone might make our happiness do a 180 degree turn. As we think of that, it would spoil our elation thinking that something could turn our happiness around.

I believe GOD doesn't just want us to be happy; He wants us to be joyful. Happiness comes from external things while joy comes from things that last. Happiness can go away after a while but joy, coming from God, lasts forever.
