If you ever have feelings of insecurity or worthlessness, please know that they are not of God. THEY ARE LIES that the devil whispers into your ear. Rebuke those thoughts- DON'T BELIEVE THEM. YOU ARE FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE, with a unique purpose that only you can fill. And best of all, there IS a God who loves you deeply, and He longs to show you how utterly precious you are to Him.
A girl is happiest when she knows that you make her your everything. In front of everyone every time.
At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone or something, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up, and it’s not like you shouldn’t try. It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours would eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be.
Sure, 2010 wasn't the greatest year for you. There were heartbreaks. There were smiles. Memories were created, some you will never forget. You smiled, you cried. You have grown. You have become smarter. You have learned from your mistakes. You hurt yourself. You cried because of the truth. You laughed. You loved. Whatever you did in 2010, it has already happened. You have learned this year, and make 2011 better than 2010.
I'll lift my hands, but You are worthy of so much more.
How can I stand beneath the breath of God and not be humbled? How can I stand in His presence and not be moved? God, You are truly amazing.
Christians feel as though they need to climb the ladder of righteousness. They always have those "few small sins" to take care of before they can finally be "godly". What they forget is that God says we're already there. We're already completely righteous and pure before Him. We've been that way since the life left Jesus' body two thousand years ago. Trust that you are who God says you are. Redeemed. Forgiven.
There is no power in Heaven or Hell that can keep me from the love of the Father on His throne.
Insecurities are crippling. They keep you held back in casts and crutches when you should be running free without limitation.
A true man does not promise, he commits. A true lady does not demand, she thanks.
“The wildest part is that Jesus doesn’t have to love us. His being is utterly complete and perfect, apart from humanity. He doesn’t need me or you. Yet He wants us, chooses us, even considers us His inheritance. The greatest knowledge we can ever have is knowing God treasures us.” —Francis Chan, Crazy Love (via baristasarah)
REBLOG IF: You hold your breath when you see a smoker come near you.
God is a God of impossibilities. He can't be fit into a box. He can't be understood by logic. He's unlimited, invincible. He's supernatural. And that's what makes Him AWESOME
We are products of our past, but we don't have to be prisoners of it. God's purpose is not limited by your past. He turned a murderer named Moses into a leader and a coward Gideon into a courageous hero, and He can do amazing things with the rest of your life, too. God specializes in giving people a fresh start.
-Rick Warren (The Purpose Driven Life)
“Mark it down: God loves you with an unearthly love. You can’t win it by being winsome. You can’t lose it by being a loser. God will not let you go. He has handcuffed Himself to you in love.” —Max Lucado (via -bailee)
I'm so glad I serve a God who will always catch me when I fall.
“You may be the only Jesus that people ever see.” —Pastor Rick Burnam, High Sierra Scholarship Camp (via tobemadenew)
God-given faith is like a sleeping giant within each of us. When it awakens, miracles happen.
