Source Of Happiness by SavedArt Source Of Happiness by SavedArt
Everyone wants to be happy. Sadness is not what you should want but unfortunately because we are all looking in bad places we are never happy and complete. Jesus Christ is the Only one who can make you so happy and complete. The Bible says ' but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:14. Your true happinesss and Joy is found in Jesus Christ, not in Money, Riches, Women, Men, Sex, Drugs and so on. Come to himand you will never thirst again because he will complete you when you let him into your LIFE.

That's is a masterpiece. I really like the bright colours used in both text and background. And I really love the outline, making it look like a huge stamp.

In terms of impact, this artwork really does just that. And indeed, Jesus is the one and only source of happiness. That reminds me of when Jesus was speaking to the woman at the well, where he said,

"Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life" (John 4: 13-14)

The things of this world can only make us happy, temporarily, and then make us go sad, but Jesus is all we simply need to be happy.


Keep up with the great work, SavedArt, and may God bless you.

I'm happy and it isn't from Jesus or god.

I haven't found Jesus and I'm as happy as I could ever be.
I've got a goal I'm working towards and I've got a loving boyfriend who loves me with all his heart and supports me with everything I do.
So I disagree with this post.
I think it would've been better if you put 'I' instead of 'You' there.

It really is quite amazing and not in a good sense, how people react to the messages in his art. Some say this sort of post is shoving it down peoples throats. I hope you never have to experience what that really entails, lest you find out that this is absolutely no where near that. You had a choice on viewing this peace did you not. You chose to view it and then to comment on how one should stop shoving down your throat. That is basically the equivalent of you taking your own hand shoving down your throat and blaming someone else miles away for attacking you...sigh. Others feel that these things should be kept to oneself. Why would you keep a secret that you believed could save someone's life to yourself? Isn't that being selfish? We would never have come this far as a people with no advancements in knowledge, if we all kept out knowledge to ourselves. We are social creatures by design. Though you may not know this since you may live in a place of luxury compared to other parts of the world. When you see the opposite reaction to what some of you claim is a great idea of caring only about self, where a person witnessing to someone who has never heard of the truth you believe in, to see their eyes light up with this unexplainable joy as you demonstrate to them what has been taught to you as if a buried treasure was suddenly presented to them. The dismay and hopelessness in there countenance turns into this inspiring expression of hope and an unexplainable joy enters them. Sadly maybe your experience with religion has never been anything more than confined to the limits of your logic and letters in a book, but others have experienced a living faith with a living God. Many speak of tolerance and yet have no idea what it really is... You don't need a life vest because you are secure in a boat that you trust is never going to let you down because you can see it, yet unexpectedly you may find that boat starting to sink and realize how badly you needed that life vest and no one taught you how to swim because they preferred to keep that knowledge to themselves...fortunately even then miraculously that life vest may appear just in the nick of time. You don't agree with this message because your experience has been different, I understand your stances. Brethren, our Lord told us plainly, "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” -- John 16:33. The "Happy" we know of now a days is mostly of a Hollywood definition. I think being at peace would be considered being happy. It is still a glorious thing however, that those who don't believe feel compelled to view and comment on these, may God be glorified as the artist intended. Seeds are planted and watered but it is God who gives the increase :D.

Hia :3.. piece not peace. Sorry that was bugging me :XD:
People consider it being stuffed down their throat because he's not giving the option for anything else other than "GO JESUS!"... It's the 'I'm right, I believe in all the right things. If you don't believe in what I do, you're wrong. No matter what." It's sort of like that.
You can say what helped you. Like not thinking about God and Jesus actually made me feel a lot better. But I'm not going to post pictures saying that everyone else should too... it helped me. Alright. Could help you, if not. Fine, we're all different...I know he's not really saying it... but it can be heard that way ^^;
Everyone thinks differently, which makes everyone so great (except for people who like to harm others... then... not so great) I'll be happy if Jesus makes you happy... but that's just, you're happiness makes me happy.
I agree that some people call others something... when they're just as bad as the person they're insulting, like when people call others 'close minded'... normally, they're too.
Maybe you'd be lucky and that would happen...if so. Wow... pat on the back for you :XD: you almost died! (I find luck more amazing than miracles... miracles is just 'god did it'... luck is... just something I can't imagine, that has never been described in a book and has no words for us. It just happens.. and normally it's pretty awesome when it does!)
I don't think people can ever be 100% at peace... at least I don't think I'd ever be... if other's are sad I can't be alright knowing that... and unfortunately some one is always sad.
Derp I don't know what I'm talking about anymore... sorry for randomly butting in.
The seed thing is interesting... let's say God didn't do anything to the seed.. he wanted his creation is learn on it's own... no fun if some one guides you through everything... it's like a game that only has 1 level.. the tutorial. So then the wind, sun and other stuff would make it grow... but doesn't that mean God made those things... so God still did make the seed grow. Unless he lets his patterns take care of the weather for him... but he made the patterns... but then gravity would take care of the patterns... I think you get the point :P
What if he's just taking care of himself... watching us :P just seeing how it all plays out.
Or something else.
No idea what I'm talking about.
Potato.
Pickle.
Stapler.
I'm Hungry. :iconrawr-plz:

I'm actually happy with other things and people, but I'm not against anyone being happy with Jesus.

Nice picture too. I love so much the colours. They give it an eye-candy aspect.

Money, sex, drugs.

They may sound good but for one, they don't last. And they don't give you eternal happiness. One day you'll be fine with everything you have. All your earthly possesions and money and drugs. But considering we're humans and we can become greedy, it's only a matter of time until you crave more power, more sex, and more money and drugs.

And eventually you'll crack under your own selfish desires and wanting for more. You may even kill someone to get what you want. That's the dangers of only having earthly objects to fill your heart with joy. It never lasts and you'll just keep wanting more.

With God, to me there is something to be happy about, truly happy. Nothing bad can come of being a believer of Christ. People will hate you, yes, and mock you and hurt you. But Jesus will never let you fall because he is your heavenly Father. He won't let you fall in love with earthly desires and he won't let you become greedy and selfish.

For me, believing in Jesus makes me a better person every day. The laws of the bible keep me in line and safe from wandering into Satan's temptation like millions of people already have.
