Submissive Happiness

Rocky Fork, Unicoi County

“We do not find happiness by being assertive.
We don’t find happiness by running over people
because we see what we want and they are in the way
of that happiness so we either abandon them or we smash them.
The Scriptures don’t teach us to be assertive.
The Scriptures teach us–and this is remarkable–
the Scriptures teach us to be submissive. This is not a popular idea.”

Rich Mullins, 1955-1997
Christian singer and songwriter
