  1. Hello pastor Rick Warren, I absolutely love you’re sermons about the bible. After a couple of videos I gave my life to Christ Jesus. What was weird is that in every you tube video I see, you always makes me tear up all the time 😂😂. Thankful to God that he led me to you’re videos and it’s not by chance I now feel it. What’s actually weird is that I thought you had already talked about this the other day which even prompted me to update my what’s app status which now reads “constantly seeking God’s approval over man’s validation 😊.weird enough is that I have just paused this video at 19:52 after you say it.I can’t thank you enough for leading me to Christ Jesus.

    1. Thank you for sharing that it was really beautiful. You made my night. Someday I’ll say hello to you in heaven God bless and welcome to the family

  2. Thank you so much for this message, Pastor Rick. I’m so thankful for you!

    Choices I should make to be Happy-using Phil 1 as our guide
    1. Remember that God can bring good out of ANYTHING- Rom 8:28, Psalm 34:1 I can only do this is I choose to look at every situation from God’s viewpoint and not my own.
    2. NEVER let others control my attitude
    3. Trust GOD to ALWAYS work things out. This gives me hope, courage and happiness.
    4. Stay focused on my purpose, not my problem

  3. I love this sermon
    I watched it …. And rewatched….and rewatched
    Thank you so much
    My downfall is allowing others to control my happiness and living in the past/regrets
    I’m a work in progress however——
    God is soooo good though 🙂

    1. Im there too. Made huge mistakes and cant seem to move on. Its like i drank the pouson hoping THEY would die. Doesnt work that way. Iv suffered for years w depression too. I have to move on and live my life now. Not in the past.

  4. Thank you so much I’m glad you popped up “accidentally” on YouTube. I am a student of A course in miracles, most of my life I followed meditation gurus thinking that the bible is old hat. ACIM and The Chosen series have brought me to you pastor. You have enrich ACIM and The Chosen for me even further. I will be following your prayers every morning when I awake. Thank you. Thanks be to god.💕🙏

  5. God bless you Pastor Rick. I have learned so much from your videos. Thank you.

  6. What a wonderful and extremely important message to hear and practice! Thank you so much for Sharing it, Pastor Rick.
    I think it’s vital to understand that no one should be expected to ignore problems they encounter or always act as though bad things and bad people don’t exist. It is quite normal to experience pain, fear, and frustration. What makes the life-changing difference, as pointed out in this video, is to Not stay in that dejected state. Do your best to keep your focus on what’s Good and what can be done to make things better. And above all else, don’t let Anybody steal your happiness!! It’s very clear to me that far too many seem to be on a mission to do so.

  7. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29-30
