You won’t be the same - ever again. You are going to change frequently - day by day. Things are going to happen that will shape and mold you into the person you are meant to be, but you have to let it all happen. You have to let it change you. But you do not have to let it define you. Cry, laugh, smile, frown - do it all in the name of loving yourself and wanting to be the person God wants you to be.

Keep Calm, Follow Jesus, and Pray

If you’re questioning God, don’t.
Don’t let your doubts push Him away.
He is faithful.
He knows best.
He has plans, far greater than we can imagine or ever dream of.
Love Him.
Follow Him.
Run as fast as you can towards Him.
He has you in His arms.

Food for Thought

"But if you look to God and plead with the Almighty, if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your rightful place. Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be."

Job 8:5-7

Seek Ye First

Even though you may not see it or feel it right now, God is your defense. He is a refuge in your storm. He has plans for you, miracles that will take place that you don’t even know yet. Seek His refuge. Let him knock down the ruthless lies that dry up your spirit. Take comfort in His shade. Find peace in His rain.

Just Sayin’

Him: How’s your life?
Her: It’s the same old shit. I don’t have my dream job. I don’t have a significant other…
Me: You don’t need a significant other, girl you got Jesus!

I think some people believe that a significant other will make their lives better. But, surprise world, you should probably be happy on your own before you try to be happy with someone else.

Up To The Mountain

Sometimes I feel like
I’ve never been nothing but tired
And I’ll be working
Till the day I expire
See sometimes I lay down
But no more can I do
But then I go on again
Because you asked me to

Your Will, Not Mine

All I need is a sign

A simple little banner in the sky.

All I need is a word

A simple little “go” or a “try”.

All I need is an answer

A clear, cut sentence.

All I need is a direction

Something to get me off of this fence.

I’m looking straight ahead

But nothing seems to be clear.

Am I missing something obvious?

Is there more to be done here? 

Will you show me what to do

Cos I am completely lost.

I am trying to be a servant

Trying to carry my cross.

I don’t want to make a wrong move

Forget to do something important.

But when I have no vision

The road becomes easily bent. 

All I’m asking for is a sign

A little banner in the sky.

All I’m wanting is to do your will

To chase your dreams, not mine.

Jesus

I lived my life for the sake of yours

And I cry because you don’t know.

I walked that long, hard road

Whipped, beaten, and thrown.

You’re forgetting what life is

Why the Father sent you here.

You keep missing the message

Too busy drowning in that liquor and beer.

Your eyes were made to see

Your ears made to listen.

Your heart was meant to love

Your love meant to glisten.

Your lips were meant to speak truth

Yet degrading words are all you say.

Like a cement wall, you’ve become

Plain, ill favored, and grey.

Did you miss the gift given to you?

The present in today?

Open your eyes, my child.

Keep calm, follow me, and pray. 

Keep Calm and

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 

- Philippians 4:6-7
