“It doesn’t honor God to pretend like everything is OK. That’s the beauty of Jesus that so many people miss. The beauty is that he died on the cross for our sins, but also that he existed the way we exist. He understands what it’s like to lose a friend. He’s not unfamiliar with those emotions. He’s not unfamiliar with the difficulty of human life. To me that’s what makes Jesus as God beautiful. He totally understands. He went out of his way to prove to us that he understands our situation. So when he has something to say, it’s not coming from this high and lofty standpoint. It’s coming from this person who understands intricately the perils of human existence.”
“Are you scared? Or are you not ready? There is a difference.”
“My fear is silenced in your love, my hope is endless.”
Today an old lady in Walmart came up to me and said, ” I was just telling my husband how cute you look in that outfit!” Haha, at least I look cute to old people.
“God’s grace calls you to suffer and it calls you to wait, but it never calls you to stand in your own strength or to stand alone.”
“Sometimes God’s blessings are not in what He gives; but in what He takes away. He knows best. Trust Him.”
