Always Be Kinder Than Necessary.
My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes - many times - my feelings are out of sync with the truth. When that happens - and it happens every day in some measure - I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth.

Not everyone you lose is a loss.

I have given God countless reasons not to love me. None of them has been strong enough to change Him.
Paul Washer   (via sheshallnotbemoved)
But remember, there are two ways to dehumanize someone: by dismissing them, and by idolizing them.
David Wong  (via boneshard)

God of the Old Testament? God of the New Testament? They seem different, but it’s really just one God.

Why does the characterization seem so different?

This pain is only temporary. The pain worth is worth enduring because His perfect plan is greater than mine.

Nothing Holding Me Back // Bryan and Katie Torwalt

You took the weight of sin upon Your shoulders and sacrificed Your life so I could live…. Now nothing is holding me back from You.

I choose happiness. I will purposely find the beauty of my days to come. I know I feel like the hurt will never stop, and I feel like my world has been shaken up… But there is joy still to come. There is abundant grace I was meant to gorge myself in. There is an overwhelming amount of love I was meant to experience.

I choose reclaiming my First Love, who loved (and still loves) me when I had forgotten about Him. I was chasing lovers who could not satisfy. I was being a mistress when I was meant to be His bride above all else.

Don’t cry, Karen… don’t cry… DO NOTTTTTTT

What does it mean to be a good friend? I feel like I don’t even know how to be one anymore… 

When did Jesus stop being enough?

Love says: I’ve seen the ugly parts of you, and I’m staying.

Our culture doesn’t love love; It loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without the sacrifice.
