I Have a Confession to Make (Confession) -David...
I have a confession to make Grace is more racy than homosexuality More full of life than teenage pregnancy More captivating than pornography Grace is far more potent than anything that could make us guilty But we treat grace like a child When we hide our sin and question its ability I have a confession to make The measure of a Christian Is not how well their sin is hidden Or how many...
je pense que tu me manques. ouais, c’est très possible. mais, la vie, il va continues. et mon cœur, il bat encore. Dieu est mon confort, Il est mon forteresse. comment peux je n’être pas aidé?
after one of the most physically, mentally, and spiritually exhausting summers of my life, I am glad to be home. yet, it’s bittersweet. God worked in ways I can’t even describe, and I am so thankful to have been able to be a part of the staff up at PBC for as long as I have, and to be able to be a part of such an amazing ministry. the “bitter” part is leaving my second...
and when I have nothing left to give, Jesus, I pray that you take it anyway. what can I do but offer this ragged, worn-out heart and give it completely to you? thank you Lord, for all you’re doing.
some days your heart aches more than you can bear. when that happens, let God wrap you in his arms and hold you tight, for his grace is sufficient.
steps to spiritual (and probably other kinds as...
1: say YES to Jesus. it’s the only way to find peace, joy, fullness, etc.. say yes to his love, his mercy, his passion, his grace, his healing, EVERYTHING. dive in! 2: say NO to the world. confront the lies that are controlling your life: jealousy, worthlessness, pride, despair, anything that is contrary to what God says. don’t conform to what the...
I still hate this. maybe more than before.
new girl life lesson #46
always say (please and) thank you. “I love it, I love it, I love it. I love… you.” “…thank you..” hahaha. so. awkward.
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow. You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal...

the past may have been good, but the future holds great things as well. look there instead; you won’t regret it.
welp, that wasn’t the best idea I’ve ever had.
I’m feeling a little overwhelmed today. I have so much to do, very little time to do it all, and even less motivation to actually start on any of it. I’m thinking I need some Jesus time.
they say it’ll get easier. it hasn’t yet. I need you more than ever, Jesus, I’m suffocating in my own despair.
does anybody else ever feel like they’re making progress, slowly but surely, but then one small thing happens and you just fall apart? It drives me crazy! help me, Jesus!
and when I feel like giving into despair, you reach out and remind me that you are there. you are the Savior, the one who gives me life. you are my peace, in the sorrow and pain and all the strife. Beloved? that’s me. who I am in you can never be changed, rearranged, lost or estranged. because your love lifts me to the highest mountains, your grace is deeper than the very deepest...
when the first mutt came out of nowhere.
mockingjay-rebels: this was definitely me.
I want to break things.
just remember: you’re worth fighting for.
you know how when you’re picking a major at school and people ask you why and youre like “I can’t imagine doing anything else” and they’re like “you’re probably doing the right thing then”. I think it’s kind of like that. you know there are other guys, but even though he’s put you through hell, you cant imagine being with anyone else. you...
what do you do when your best friend breaks your heart?
why is it that we have a harder time trusting God when shit hits the fan, especially as that’s the time we need to trust him most? I just don’t understand.
I can live without you; I was just choosing not to.

God has been telling me a lot lately to not let my heart be troubled. I think it’s finally sinking in. thank you Jesus.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
Jesus-bomb of the night:
God has invested his worth in you; therefore, you are priceless.
