xbonita: I refuse to give up on you. Please don’t tell me to walk away from something that means so much to me. You (and he) mean so much to me. An issue that is too great for me to handle is not too great for God to handle. I may not be able to say the right things, but I can pray. And nothing is going to stop me from praying. Sometimes I just want to kick Satan in the face. This world is...

Victor Song: The Body Got a Haircut →
imsicknasty: victorsong: People are leaving and people are graduating. I’m actually pretty sad about it, but I guess it’s a necessary stage of life. I just recently read Matt Lin’s post about how he wanted to make sure that they were all okay. I think it’s the opposite for me. I want them to be here because I feel like… I have the same sentiments. I suppose God will do His thang regardless...
J.S. Park: Around The Corner: A Second Wind →
jspark3000: You’ve been in meltdown before, when the world felt unusually cruel and your insides collapsed and there weren’t enough tears to cry through your heaving convulsing sobs. Like the wind was uppercut out of your soul. It’s not pretty. Not like the movies. It’s not dramatic or cathartic or… This is so relevant right now!!!!
If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it...– Osho (via realvibe)
words meet heartbeats: Graduate From Insecurity →
leeyounger: What good thing has insecurity ever given you? I guess it sometimes feels really humble and holy to think that you basically suck, but it’s time to get honest: that’s not what true humility is about. Insecurity wants pity, but you’re not pitiful. You are the beloved child of…

I can’t shake this feeling and it makes me feel sick… God are you listening? Can you hear me?

valour: n.: Refiner's fire →
val-our: God, it’s so hard to believe that You are good. Feeling alone in such overwhelming trials, my heart has been so deeply wounded. As I have left these wounds to fester in the darkness of self-pity, I have allowed bitterness and resentment to scab over these wounds. And these scars just remind me of… This this this with everything right now
fromacacia: idontseeyoucrocheting: The most attractive thing in the world to me is when people talking about their passion, and they get that fire in their eyes. It’s the best. Nothing sexier in the world than this.
why did you make me this person why do i have these feelings and why do i care about the things that i do or want the things that i do things that all seem to conflict but i want them all the same am i so selfish to be myself? and to want to be happy and for everyone else to be? or are you showing me that all these things complete me when really you should. but you made me this way. and i...
Cynicism really comes out of despair, but the antidote to cynicism is not...– from clee’s post (which is not relevant to how i’m feeling but still good)

risingofthesun: No chain is strong enough No choice is wrong enough No mountain high enough that He can’t climb No shadow dark enough No night is black enough No road is lost enough that He can’t find No pain is deep enough, No heart could bleed enough Nothing but Jesus’ love can make a way
mirrorscracked: Teach me to be like Job, who admits wrong and chooses to be humble. Like Paul, who rises up through his past to glorify God, unkept by shame. Like David, who clings to God despite all circumstances. These godly people you read about, and meet in real life Sometimes becoming one feels so far away But you changed their lives God, and I will cling to you for this...

J.S. Park: Making Prayer Harder Than It Really Is →
jspark3000: I don’t know anyone who thinks they’re praying as much as they should. When the preacher tells us to pray more, we really want to. It’s a constant, itchy, burdening debt. Days, weeks, months go by with a handful of failed attempts — and each prayer feels like we’re apologizing. …
Peter Adrian: A word on Feminism →

Here Am I: What Love Was →
louieguan: I do not think that you’re doing it wrong when your heart aches and pains for the people you think you care about. There is no magical trick, there is no five step plan. Love is as grueling of a task as it gets. You grow desperate in trying to help a friend who keeps saying you don’t understand?…
Don’t give in. Don’t settle. No matter what you’ve told yourself, you’re better...– — J.S. (via jspark3000)
