Outside things like food, travel, friends, and accomplishments can make us happy, but not long term. At least that has been my experience. I felt like something was missing in my life and I couldn't quite pinpoint what it was. It was God. I had left Him out of my life completely.
Part of my Heart
Placing God first in my life is a commitment that brought me into a right relationship with God. Today, I submerge myself in the Word constantly and find my thoughts on accomplishing God's goals for me. I have never been happier.
