"There’s Someone who loves you, right now, today. He loves your smile, your laugh, your hair, your heart. The haters and trolls don’t get it, but who cares? The One who made you loves you just the way you are, and one day the whole world will understand what He sees in you."
"Distance sometimes lets you know who’s worth keeping and who’s worth letting go."
"In spiritual life, when you cease to climb, you begin to descend."
"For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift — not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them."
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
"I love you Lord, but I want to love you more."
"My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes - many times - my feelings are out of sync with the truth. When that happens - and it happens every day in some measure - I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth."
