You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect. -T.B. LaBerge // Things I’m Still Learning at 25 (via tblaberge)

He’s faithful.

But not just when the pain is ending and the understanding comes.
He was faithful in the midst of our hurt, when we were filled with confusion.

He doesn’t suddenly become faithful when we finally come to know what He was doing the whole time we thought He had left us.


When we were unfaithful, He was faithful.
When we didn’t understand, He was faithful.
When we hated Him, He was faithful.
When we blamed Him, He was faithful.
When we marred His reputation, He was faithful.

When we left- He stayed.
When we cursed- He blessed.
When we hated- He loved.

He is faithful.
He was faithful.
He has always been faithful.


(And if the only time you call Him faithful is when you aren’t facing trouble, then you must realize that it was not Him who was unfaithful during that time, but you.)

And you’ll love each day, you’ll find joy in the mornings and life in the evenings. You’ll have so much, and nothing, you’ll have peace in that; because you’ll have Him.

We are striving for a place of renewal, where depression and sadness is gone, and where temporary values have been replaced with eternal values. In the end, we will have given our final sigh, and replaced it with the beginning breath.

There is something beautifully powerful about female solidarity. When a woman is affirmed and encouraged by another woman, she experiences the most remarkable form of empowerment—her passions validated, her potential activated, and all inhibitions eradicated. When a man believes in you, it’s flattering. But when another woman believes in you, looks you in the eyes, and tells you so, it awaken a stifled soul. -LB, From Her, To Her (via yesdarlingido)
A beautiful feeling, when someone tells you “I wish I knew you earlier”. -(via nizariat)

Often I have heard people say, “How good God is! We prayed that it would not rain for our church picnic, and look at the lovely weather!” Yes, God is good when He sends good weather. But God was also good when He allowed my sister, Betsie, to starve to death before my eyes in a German concentration camp. I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged there. Everything around us was dark, and there was darkness in my heart. I remember telling Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us. “No, Corrie,” said Betsie, “He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word: “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.” … There is an ocean of God’s love available - there is plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that victorious love - whatever the circumstances.” -Corrie Ten Boom (via birdonaleash)

The same reason I’m obsessed with drinking water and breathing oxygen.

We need him

Within the three days that Christ was in the grave; The world mourned, Heaven prepared a throne-room for the Eternal King of Glory, and hell witnessed the collapse of its empire.

Sometimes in the silence and sorrow of life, Christ is doing His greatest work.
