Control. Everyone wants control nowadays.
It is what everything has boiled down to. STOP. That’s not right. Judge me for this post. Call me out, that’s what everyone’s going to do anyway right? I’m used to it by now.
I’m just a horrible person. God make me new, please.
dlawgz: It’s so hard to judge people based on their outward appearance, yet we do it all the time. You may think you know the journey of each person you see based on their looks but think again. The only way you’ll understand how that certain person can still smile after so much hurt is when they share those secret moments that have made them who they are today.
Just going to leave this here.
Words can’t explain it. Maybe I’m just in awe of what You have for me. I’m still learning more about You each day. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit: Lord, You’re great. You know I know that. And, whatever, you have for me, let me shine through it in Your name. You know I have fears, I have doubts, but I ask that you cast all these to the foot of...
A Future Not of Our Own
humble-patient-kind: It helps, now and then, to step back and take the long view. The kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is beyond our vision. We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God’s work. Nothing we do is complete, which is another way of saying that the kingdom always lies beyond us. No statement says all that could be said. No...

dvniela: Over the past couple days, while everyone on Facebook has proceeded to change their profile pictures in an effort to show support for the American marriage equality movement, I was busy trying to figure out who the hell was who and, oh, found out about, you know, other shit that went on meanwhile: President Obama signed the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ into law, effectively barring...
jamieleebu: You’d think that the amount of good deeds one performs will equal or even exceed the good things that happen to him/her but as chance always seem to callously suggest, the probability’s rather arbitrary at best.

Where is God in Tragedy? →
dlawgz: It still blows my mind how that special someone might actually be walking amongst us on a daily basis
Taking things to heart
is unhealthy for you sometimes.
jamieleebu: To engage oneself in the process of love is at the same time risking yourself to a huge probability of heartache and hurt. And that quite possibly, may be the toughest pill to swallow.

Honestly, I got exposed to the world this year. More than I would have never expected. [[MORE]] ”Man I won’t ever have to struggle with that.” Well, that’s just clearly wrong. Maybe it gave me the realization, that as you grow older, the tighter the world wants to have a grip on you. Conversely, I can also say that I don’t do these things based on an account of...
classyliving: I just got off the phone with the friend who helped me come to walk into this Christian life. Without her, I don’t know where I would be today in my faith. And I suppose I am kind of sad because of how she has lost her faith completely. And I get why she has walked away and I suppose in some ways she had to walk away. I will not say where her heart always was or whether there truly...
do you express thought?
To my future wife.
Pray for me, as I pray for you tonight. Whoever you are. I love you and will always.
Why are we humans so curious sometimes? To experiment, to try things, people call “forbidden.” Is that why we try them because they’re forbidden?
You’re really tugging at me right now. And, I should have realized it. You were always tugging at me, telling me to come back to You.
