It’s not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What’s hard is figuring out what you’re willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.
The realest people don’t have a lot of friends.

When we start to drift into a restless place, a dark and lonely place, we tend to get there because we have taken our eyes from Christ, from that man who lived a life of obedience, and then died a terrible death, who rose again and proclaimed His kingdom come. That is where our eyes must always be, upon the King of glory, who loves us with a love that never dies. Darkness sets in, when we refuse to let the light shine, so open all the windows! Unlock the doors! Make every possible entrance available for our God to make Himself known once again. One does not breathe in the beauty of autumn or the joys of spring by keeping themselves in a cold and dark place, rise and rise again, until you have Christ living and loving through you.
You are not useless, you are not worthless, you are not ugly, because you are Christ’s! That is an honor that even the stars are jealous of, and the sun longs for. For we are the children of God, seen as blessed and holy. So live in that reality, live in view of Jesus, for we find life and life abundantly in that most glorious sight of Christ. Rest, thrive, grow, find restoration in the arms of He who conquered death, and took on the sins of the world. Jesus knows shame, He knows betrayal, pain, heartache, depression, and all the evils of this world; and He says to you to not take them on, but to take Him instead. His burden is light, and His companionship is good; so walk, and live with Christ, for it is the greatest adventure you will ever have.
i love laughing about the friend zone because it’s so dumb like you know most of those dudes aren’t even IN the “friend zone” they’re in the “ugh god not this dude again” zone
Maybe one day, the sad songs won’t be about us. Maybe, we’ll have a happy one; I hope so, and I’d like to dance with you to it.

I am cruel, I am apathetic, I am broken, and I am always falling short; this is why I must point everyone I know to Christ, He is consistent in a world full of inconsistencies, He is faithful when all the world is unfaithful, and He is good when goodness cannot be found.
God doesn’t need your good works, but your neighbor does.
Martin Luther (via ericballard)
You start to understand how God must feel when you love someone but they don’t love you back, except, His love is infinitely more than what we can produce, and we never live without it; this is why we must make Him our top priority, because you are His.
I’ve been running down memory lane today.
It’s safe to say, I still believe in certain people. I really believe in what once was. I’m genuine & real when it comes to my relationships with people. I have no idea what it will take for me to stop believing in you- to stop supporting, caring, praying, & wishing the best.
I will always give you kind words.
& sometimes, I just think we’re frozen in time, waiting to come back.
So to you, I hope things work out & you remember how it all started. Stay strong. Be courageous.
To you, I want you to know I’m so proud of you & I believe in you. You’re doing unbelievable things, just keep your mind on the things above. Hold on a little longer. You are worthy to be loved.
To you, I hope you believe in the turn around because you’re living it as we speak. Thank you for letting me see the reality of dreams come true & after it all, I’ve learned to love you, so I’m praying you keep getting better.

God loves us extravagantly, ridiculously, without limit or condition.
