Hey everyone, it’s been about a week since I’ve last posted. And I’m humbled and blessed by your messages concerning where I’ve been. Y’all give me so much love. God has blessed me in ways unimaginable this past week, and I hope to get many devotionals and words up on this blog of mine. Feels good to be back. God is so good.
Dear Future Wife,
I pray that you are fiercely loyal to me. As I will be fiercely loyal to you.
If you could walk beside me..
Why is there so much distance between us, friend?
Anonymous asked: Beautiful. what you're doing with your life is absolutely beautiful. God must be very happy with you through the highs and lows and especially when you struggle to fight against your own flesh in dark times. I'm very inspired by your tumblr and i want to thank you so much for consistently writing on it. :)
Anonymous asked: Praise the Lord! I'm also a follower of God but I'm having a hard time balancing time with my friends and the church life. Do you have any advice?
I wish I could just negotiate with the spiders in...
Me: Okay well I really hate killing you guys and I know that without you the world would be overrun with insects, so I love you and all, but I kind of really need to take a shower and I don't wanna drown you or have you panic and bite me.
Spider: No probs bro I'll just go hang around in that corner until you're done. By the way, your fan is getting really dirty, my cousin's been living in there and he's not so happy with the conditions.
Me: Oh that's okay I'll have it cleaned and just you can just tell him to move out until it's done.
Spider: Sure thing, man, I'll be over here until your shower's over.
I guess the thing about genuine friendship and relationship is that there is some level of vulnerability. To an extent, you are giving a part of your heart to someone. C.S. Lewis said it best, “To love is to be vulnerable.” There is an innate sense of trust. But therein lies the problem. The heart is so incredibly valuable while a mere human being is so incredibly imperfect....
A Prayer for a Sister
Dear Father, I want to pray for a dear sister of mine. I hold her close to my heart, but I know You hold her closer to Yours. Today, let her not be made an object of lust. Keep men’s shifty eyes averted from her, Shield her purity and beauty with a garment of righteousness. May she be treated with the utmost respect, as she was intended to be treated. Keep her heart and mind fixated upon...
I can’t be a significant part of your life if you don’t let me in.
Intellectualism and fancy words may win the applause of the world, but a meek and humble spirit is beautiful in the eyes of the Father. “Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their craftiness,’ and...
By giving up your standards, By settling for lusty relations, By letting guys touch your body, By seeking attention and love through physical appearance, you are compromising the absolutely beautiful romance God has in store for you. I’d like to think that at the core of every girl’s heart, she would choose love over lust. You have the choice, you can choose! Please. You really can....
Excuse my lack of eyes LOL— the result of a 1:30AM jam session with the sister. EDIT: This sounds really bad the second time I listen to it loool. Ohhh wells. “Boasting” - Lecrae “If this life has anything to gain at all I count it lost if I can’t hear you, feel you, ‘cause I need you. Can’t walk this earth alone. I recognize I’m not my own, so...
Anonymous asked: Me and my friend were talking about whether or not people could actually meet the love of their lives over the internet. i'm not sure if this is possible. Do you think you could you ever fall in love with someone that you only met over the internet. and if you did, then what? Who moves where, and how do you deal with all the problems and stigmas that come from this; especially when you live...
A youth pastor once told me
You don’t need to search for a girl or run after a girl. That’s not how you find her. All you gotta do is aim for God and start running. Soon, you’ll notice someone else running beside you, maybe even faster than you. That’s who you’ll want to go for.
If it weren’t for You Father, I feel like I would’ve gone insane by now.
Anonymous asked: I'm still afraid to come off anon.I'll see you in school tomorrow and probably just ask normal but I really don't know what to do. I bought a lighter this weekend to remind me of how i used to burn and cut myself and to remind myself how I was never going back to that, yet I feel as if its not worth it anymore.
Haven’t seen the sky like this in a while. Magnificence.
Anonymous asked: I'm having a lot of trouble with church and school and my relationship with God. I really want to talk to you, but I feel embarrassed because we're not really friends :P
Anonymous asked: There's this girl that I used to be really good friends with, but she's become quite...mean and seemingly concerned about ~popularity~. We have one class together so we'd been talking for the past year, and I figured that by the end of this year I (hopefully) wouldn't have to talk to her again. However, she recently did something pretty awful to someone and I really don't...
Anonymous asked: I do know you in real life. I'm just too ashamed to come foward. I feel completely lost and dead in school. I've faked my emotions so much that I can't even tell when I'm happy anymore. My life just seems like a complete joke.
If I was a girl and a guy called me a ho, slut, b****, or any other female-directed derogatory terms in a joking manner, I wouldn’t laugh. I’d freakin’ let that guy know that if he wants to joke around with me and be my friend, he’d better stop calling me that. Shoot. Stand up for yourselves, sisters. A masterpiece of God should not be spoken to that way. You are to be...
