Water came up over my head.
I said to myself, “I am finished.”
Lord, I called Your name
from the bottom of the pit.
You heard my voice.
You didn’t close your ears.
You didn’t refuse to rescue me.
You came to me on the day that i called out to You.
You said to me, “Don’t be afraid.”
You defended me and bought me back to life.
Lamentations 3:54-58 (via jesus-christ-is-king)
Every face you’ve glanced at today is the face of someone God loves, including you.
Following God isn’t glamorous, but it is so beautiful. Your hands will get dirty and your heart will get wrecked, but love makes it worth it.
Juli Wilson (via kvtes)
When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.
I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things in life that are the real ones after all.
Laura Ingalls Wilder (via fortheloveofmegan)
God is not impressed by how many Bible verses you know, He is impressed by how kind, merciful and gracious you are to people you know and people you don’t know.
