God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

He thinks only of what he wants and he does not ask himself whether he ought to want it

We spend all kinds of time trying to figuring out who we are yet the hardest time we have is living with who we are not.

3. Consider JESUS

Hebrews 12:2-3

When I give something I do not possess, I give a false and dangerous gift, a gift that looks like love but is, in reality, loveless — a gift given more from my need to prove myself than from the other’s need to be cared for. . . . One sign that I am violating my own nature in the name of nobility is a condition called burnout. Though usually regarded as the result of trying to give too much, burnout in my experience results from trying to give what I do not possess — the ultimate in giving too little! Burnout is a state of emptiness, to be sure, but it does not result from giving all I have; it merely reveals the nothingness from which I was trying to give in the first place
