“Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.” Nathaniel Hawthorne

Stop waiting for someone or something to bring you happiness or peace. It is not going to happen. We tend to churn up negative energy when we are chasing things that do not exist. Happiness is not some big thing you are searching for every day, it is something experienced only when you invest of yourself into others. God has given us each gifts to use. What is yours?  

Stop running needlessly and wasting time looking for happiness, you will never find it and will grow tired, depressed and weary.

" But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!" Amos 5:24
