Francis Frangipane

How easy it is to blame others for our unhappiness, but we are only unhappy when something other than Christ has become our life. The husband or wife who has Christ as their life, comes to their spousal relationship already satisfied. They do not come continually looking to made happy by another person’s attention; they bring Christ’s life to their spouse.

Jean Nicolas (J N) Grou

But how shall we rest in God? By giving ourselves wholly to Him. If you give yourself by halves, you cannot find full rest – there will ever be a lurking disquiet in that half which is withheld…All peace and happiness in this world depend upon unreserved self-oblation to God. If this be hearty and entire, the result will be an unfailing, ever-increasing happiness, which nothing can disturb. There is no real happiness in this life save that which is the result of a peaceful heart.
