"I cling to Jesus with every fiber of my being because He is unfailing, He is absolute, He is steadfast and His grace is deeper and wider than my imagination can even fathom. In Him and Him alone is where I’ve discovered a hope more bright and beautiful than words can possibly describe."-Adam Young (via rainydaysandblankets)
"We can get all excited about missions but do you witness to the guy sitting down beside you?"-Paul Washer (via godmoves)
There was nothing GOOD about Good Friday. An innocent Man suffered. The only Righteous One paid, the Savior died. But, that is the GOOD NEWS. That the Son of God suffered, paid, and died for us…in our place. This is our hope and salvation.
"God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns."-Psalm 46:5 (via godmoves)
"The will of God is never exactly what you expect it to be. It may seem to be much worse, but in the end it’s going to be a lot better and a lot bigger."-Elisabeth Elliot (via breanna-lynn)
But sometimes He wants you to bust through the walls!!
"Faith in the promises of God’s fatherly care produces freedom from fear, freedom from anxiety, and therefore freedom from things and freedom for people and freedom for love."-John Piper (via mrscaseyknight)
God: Love, I have waited for you. And love, I was wounded for you. Won't you look into my eyes, through the pain and through your pride and find I am true. You're the one I can't deny and I'll never leave your side. I gave my life for you.
Me: It would be easier if You were just a thought in my head. Simply something that I once read. A belief needing my defense.
God: I feel it in your eyes. There's pain that covers up these lies
Me: Now You pull me near You. When we're close, I fear You. Still I'm afraid to tell You, all that I've done. Are You done forgiving? Oh can You look past my pretending? Lord, I'm so tired of defending, what I've become. What have I become?
God: I already know who you are and all things that kept us apart. So reach in and touch My scars and know the price I paid for your heart.
Me: Well I'm falling to my knees. I feel the earth beneath. With the weight of my sin, and this crushing unbelief could You really love me with all that I've done, oh Lord?
God: I'll still love you beyond what words can say. I'll take your every suffering moment and bring a better day. I'll still love you more than what I hope to be. Let me wrap my arms around you. Let me take your breath away.
Me: I'm tired. I'm worn. My heart is heavy from the work it takes to keep on breathing. I've made mistakes. I've let my hope fail, my soul feels crushed by the weight of this world.
God: Come to the Water you who thirst and you'll thirst no more. Come to the Father you who work and you'll work no more.
Me: Satisfy me Lord, oh oh. Satisfy me Lord, oh oh. I'm begging You, to help me see. You're all I want, You're all I need. Oh, satisfy me Lord.
God: I'm there in your sorrow, under the weight of your shame. I'm there through your heartache. I'm there in the storm. My love I will keep you, by My pow'r alone. I don't care where you fall, where you have been. I'll never forsake you, My love never ends.
Here at my side My hands are holding you.
"You,” he said, “are a terribly real thing in a terribly false world, and that, I believe, is why you are in so much pain."-
"Satan deceives people into thinking that the source of their misery is due to their circumstances and what is going on around them, but actually, the real trouble is due to what is going on inside them. When our focus is on God and His sovereignty, our attitudes begin to change."-
