"The world looks for happiness through self-assertion. THE CHRISTIAN KNOWS THAT JOY IS FOUND IN SELF-ABANDONMENT: 'If a man will let himself be lost for My sake,' Jesus said, 'he will find his true self.'" ~ Elisabeth Elliot
Little Things Every Day...take a little time each day for something or the things your passionate about. Pay heed to where you might make the difference for another as well. Give outward and fill the inner of self with the gain of giving selflessly.
Love this. So many people say "well I know God above all else wants me to be happy... Do what makes you happy" but the truth of the matter is LIFE IS TOO SHORT to do all the things that make you in the moment feel good. God is about holiness. Bringing things together for our good. Never says just so that we can feel good. Joy is a choice happiness... An emotion!
