Where you stay, I stay.

Where you go, I'll go
Where you stay, I'll stay
When you move, I'll move
I will follow you
Who you love, I'll love
How you serve I'll serve
If this life I lose, I will follow you

I've been good with the whole, "Where you go, I'll go," thing for the most part...well, maybe..
But I struggle with "Where you stay, I'll stay," "Who you love, I'll love," and "How you serve, I'll serve."

I thought I was better at these things, but lately I've been realizing that I'm not so good.
Loving people is one of the most difficult things I have ever done in my entire life and I know that I don't love everyone. It is definitely something I need to continually work on.

It's reassuring to know, however, that as humans, we struggle with loving people. It is impossible for us to love as we are supposed to if we don't have God. It's so easy, as humans, to be annoyed with people and to get angry and to near the point of hatred with others. People do that to us. The best part of our lives can be the fellowship we experience, but at the same time, the most difficult times of our lives can be with the people that we're supposed to have fellowship with.

I struggle with loving people and I struggle with staying. I like to move, I like to travel and not stay put. I want to be everywhere. I like to run away from my problems. I think that I'll find happiness in other places, but in reality, I can only have happiness in God.

God is happiness and happiness is inevitable.
