Don’t tell me I’m the the one who got away. Chase after me although you’ve convinced yourself that it’s too late. Chase after me with every intention to convince me that it is not.Sammie
I can state a couple of really cool facts about how the sky was uniquely painted with stars by his hands, and we hold roughly 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms in our bodies and continue to give these amazing analogies and explain how it makes LESS sense that it was all an accident but you can’t just read an article of someone trying to prove the existence of a higher being because you have to experience Him personally. You can read a lot of something but you will never understand it to the fullest potential unless you experience it for yourself. I believe in God because he delivered me from cancer. He delivered me from depression, and suicidal thoughts. Though there is chaos around me, my eyes are on Him and I know I am ok. He has made me stronger. He has opened my eyes.
Because of personal experience I know there is a God. He is all I have. He is all I want.
If people understood the true purpose of chastity, they would see that it has nothing to do with fear or prudishness. Nor is it a repression of sexual desires. Rather, chastity is an exercise of the will, to choose what is good, the greatest of all that is good. It is a refusal to allow the desire for pleasure to displace the call to love. Pleasure is not a bad thing, but when a person pursues enjoyment at the expense of another, love is abandoned.Theology of the Body (via basedjane)
I was always afraid that you would end up nothing more than twenty-three words on a blank page. Yet, here you are.
The truth is that many do not know God, even those who think they do, because He has been misrepresented, misconstrued and distorted to look like something he’s not.Sammie
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
You may have many regrets, but purging your soul of the ones who hurt you should not be one of them. If there is an immoral power they have over you, if they govern your thoughts, emotions, or heartbeat, free yourself at once. And in that freedom, inhale deeply without that familiar pang in your chest. Taste the air and feel it swell up in your lungs like it’s the first time.You Asked Me If I Still Think of You
There is a place called ‘heaven’ where the good here unfinished is completed; and where the stories unwritten, and the hopes unfulfilled, are continued. We shall laugh together yet.J.R.R. Tolkien, in a letter to his son, Michael. (via both-seeker-and-sought)
Let us in the same way show to the people of the world who think our religion to be slavery, that it is a delight and a joy; that it is no more a burden to us to pray than it is for the fish to swim; that it is no more bondage for us to serve God than for a bird to fly. True godliness is our natural element now that we have a new nature given us by the Spirit of God.Charles Spurgeon (via craigtowens)
