Some people may complicate it for you, but the formula is simple: Love God more than anything else. More than your ego. More than your money. More than your desires…More than your sleep at dawn. Love God more than anything else, and submission comes natural. Love God more than anything else, and all goodness will follow.
The people will come and go. Sometimes they’ll be there for you. Sometimes they wont. Some will love you, some will not. This tide was never meant to be still. Step away from time to time. And know that only a heart fixed on the unmoving spot can ride the waves of this ever-changing, ever-fading life.
