Trying to make yourself happy is about as relaxing and rewarding as chasing your tail. Once you give up, you can rest easy, even on the parched and weary days.
“Let me be full; let me be empty. Let me have all things; let me have nothing. I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure. . . .” John Wesley
“[I]n a parched and weary land . . . I am satisfied. . . . I rejoice in the shadow of Your wings. . . .” Psalm 63:1, 5, 7
