cloud nine 開心到飛起

cloud nine, noun phrase (Informal), a state of perfect happiness (usually in the phrase – on cloud nine「開心到飛起」).
  Ex.例:Little wonder she’s on cloud nine; she’s in love!
                  難怪她開心得不得了;她在戀愛唄!

The Bible has this to say about those who are happy because of He who rides on the clouds:

Psalms 68 : 3-5
“But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Sing to God, sing praise to His name, extol Him who rides on the clouds—His name is the LORD—and rejoice before Him. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling.”NIV

詩篇68篇3-5節
「但願義人在 神面前歡喜快樂;願他們高興快樂。你們要向 神歌唱,歌頌他的名;高舉那乘駕雲彩之上的;他的名是耶和華,你們要在他面前歡樂。神在他的聖居所,作孤兒的父親,作寡婦的伸冤者。」 新譯本

Do you ever feel happy just because you have God the Almighty as your Father? Most people probably feel happy because they have a lot of possessions. But the Bible clearly teaches that the perfect happiness comes NOT from what you have but whose you are.(但聖經清楚告訴我們,真正的喜樂,不在乎擁有多少,而在乎我屬誰!) If you are not yet a believer and you long for a relationship that puts you on cloud nine, ask God to come into your life and surrender to Him as He promises to become a father even to the fatherless. (求主進入你生命中,而你甘願降服於祂的面前,因祂曾應許要作孤兒的父親!)
