Can’t believe I’m 18.
2. Dear Michael,
Thank you. We’ve been serving alongside each other for quite some time now. But I just wanted to show my gratitude more outwardly, because I don’t think you understand how grateful I am for you in my life. Especially recently. I don’t know why, but God has definitely put a place in my heart just for you. All those nights spent praying over you, crying together, embracing each...
Sleep avoids me these days.
Tonight, God is giving me and many others the opportunity to praise and worship in my very own school. Please, if you’re reading this, pray for hearts to be changed, walls to be broken, and souls to be surrendered.
I’ve come to realize the uselessness in being passive. Many of us remain passive because we feel it will be safe. But I’ve also come to realize how wrong that is. No matter what, no matter what, you do, people will have always find something to pick out of you. People will always have an excuse to speak badly about you, to spread lies behind your back, and to hate you. Be the guy that...
So many thoughts, lotsa free time today. Probably will try to get a bunch of posts up today, on random thoughts that have been swimming in my mind these days.

1. Dear Simon,
Thank you. I don’t cry too easily, nor do I cry often. But when I think of you, something inside me moves. If there is one person in the entire world who has a heart most similar to mine, it’s you. And you know that. We know each other’s hearts. Well. You have been one of the most evident sources of Christ’s love in my life. I mean that with every fiber of my heart. When...
God has really convicted me recently in the area of thankfulness. I’ve realized that I’m not very good at showing my gratefulness and it’s an area in my spiritual life in which I want to grow. So I’ve decided to try something new. I’m going to write a text post letter-style to a person in my life whom I am thankful for, for whatever reason big or small. I’ll try to do it as frequently as I...

jspark3000: Occasionally someone will take me out to lunch and really take an interest in the drama that I’m going through. They nod, listen, show support, encourage, and even pray. But then I never hear from them again. That’s when I realize — 1) They were just curious about the latest gossip in town, 2)…

A smile should not deter love. I think that’s where we disconnect. We’re so keen on showing compassion to that girl crying in the corner, to the visibly broken, to the noticeably weak. But when all seems fine and dandy, the urgency leaves. And it’s like we tell ourselves that that person doesn’t need to be loved on right now, because he/she is “doing well”. But...

I wonder if I’ll ever have the time to just sit, think, and write. “But you have so much time. You just procrastinate.” Yes, but I mean when was the last time you actually thought? With clarity. With meaningfulness. And when was the last time those thoughts came out in their purest essence and motive through words on a paper? When it happens, so much beauty spills out. And I...
Love those who hate you.

We turn pages until we see something we like.
See how the stars shine not at each other or for each other but with each other. Not letting one feel inadequate; they share the sky. See how the sun makes way for the moon. A celestial harmony, intertwined by a lack of condition. Love is etched into the place we seldom look. Up.
We can think of our inadequacies as terrible defects, if we want, and hate...– Gerald May, Addiction and Grace (via imsicknasty)
We build upon sheets of glass. We resemble kings, but own the hearts of slaves. Condemned to freedom, creating a strong exterior. Towers upon towers, walls upon walls. Play the fool, but reality sets in, at any given moment. One tap, it shatters. We’re all so fragile.

My God, my Savior, has ransomed me.
Can you just take a second to think about that? God fought for you. We messed it up for ourselves, constantly choosing the world over God. We were practically in Satan’s grasp. We were right where he wanted us. God could have left us alone to fight helplessly for ourselves, but He looked at us and said “I want you. I will fight for you. I will die for you.” God’s love for...
[[MORE]]What happens when I break? What happens then? Because it doesn’t seem so far away. I don’t understand humans. How some can be so selfish, so self-centered. How some can grow up learning about Love, learning about Christ, the epitome of love, and seeing it all around them, yet have so little in their hearts. How some people can be so cold, so conditional. Being the one who loves...
Just want to be alone in the open countryside with nothing but the stars and God to keep me company.
If you have a problem with me, please voice it to my face. I’m really not one to get angry so quickly or be unreasonable. I genuinely want to know what you have against me, because there seems to be a lot of you out there.
Often for people like you and me, we believe a false narrative over our lives...– J.S. from this post (via jspark3000)

Anonymous asked: wow your poetry is fantastic. why dont you write more?
Dear, you are fire. Some may pass, and steal a glimpse. A spark, a flicker. But you are a wonder, not encased by or confined to brevity, but a wonder for which one needs to stop. For a flame isn’t held in awe daily, but when it ignites, when it erupts, when it consumes, is it deemed as, absolutely extraordinary.
Yes, you are abandoning everything you have, but you are also gaining more than...– Radical, David Platt

Worn - Tenth Avenue North. I discovered this song a day or two ago, and it’s been stuck in my head and my heart. It cut deep. It’s been so relevant. I’ve been so tired. Tired of people, tired of fakeness, tired of myself. Tired of life. But if there’s an ounce of faith or usefulness inside of me, God please use it and let it grow. Into love, joy, fruit. Let me see...
[[MORE]]I’m tired, I’m worn. My heart is heavy from the work it takes to keep on breathing. Call me a coward, call me a weakling, call me selfish. But so much of me just doesn’t want to live anymore. God, please.
Disunity in the Church doesn’t cut the heart nowadays. Imagine this. - - - You’re on the frontlines of battle. You slide your sword from the sheath, as the enemy lines press on toward you. You look to your right. Allies. You look to your left. Allies. Good to go. The war rages. You fight endlessly, day and night. All of a sudden, you avert your attention from the battle for a split...
choc-o-late: There came a day that I realized nothing I did was nice enough, nothing I said was wise enough, nothing I was was good enough - not for people. And on that day I also found that through God’s eyes and by God’s grace I was enough.
