I just want a handful of close girlfriends to go on road trips and talk about life with
to have mutually understanding, supportive, and inspirational friendships….. to have a David-Jonathan-like friendship. an iron sharpening iron, deeper level sort of friendship. a friendship with people who see the world similarly, with passion and hope. people who can talk about theories and plans to put into action alike.
haha maybe within the next three years… who knows? there’s still time.
"Sin forsaken is one of the best evidences of sin forgiven."
"The beauty of Christ takes head knowledge of Christ’s work and makes it real in the heart. Beauty makes us experience and taste his goodness."
"Sometimes when you hear an awesome testimony, read certain Christian books, or see the way another person sings in worship service, it’s easy to become discouraged. Why can’t I have a faith like that? Am I doing it wrong? Do I really get it? What am I missing?
This is a losing game … So much of church relies on emotionalism and “feeling God,” so when we no longer feel God, we think something is wrong with us. The truth is: the Bible never calls us to continually duplicate our highs. We’re called to remember the Most High in our lows.
If you tried to have a wedding every day of your marriage, it would get exhausting. Preachers often try to do this to you in church, and this is why we keep hitting a dead end. Churches try to whip up a sacred moment out of thin air, but instead should really be reminding us of the reality that Jesus is present in both our mountaintops and valleys."
"The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back."
do you ever just realize
that Christ is thinking of you
like more than some other human
possibly thinking of you today
for a moment
King of Kings
Above everything in existence
Who thought of you constantly today
This life is not about finding someone who will want you, it’s about finding a God who desires you above all else.
It’s so easy to admire a candle when we have never seen the sun, so it is when it comes to longing another person more than we long for Christ.
The love we find in others is simply the shadow of the love we find in Christ, because when we shift our goals and hopes to Christ; we bring more value and meaning to those around us."
