it's all Him, everyday.
Patiently, He waits for us to seek His face again, to hope again, to believe again. No good thing will He ever withhold from you and all He has is goodness in His heart for you. If it's not good, it's not done yet because He is the giver of the good and perfect. The pain you may feel now will not compare to His glory that will shine through your story. Pain is not the end, but the beginning of something greater.
Our independence depends on our acceptance to the freedom that was bought for us with sacrificial love. The acceptance of that freedom depends on our faith in the identity of who we are which is rooted in the One who paid the price for our freedom.
Often times, all we do is focus on the darkness that envelopes us. We hide behind walls and remove our sight from the light that is always there. Light is always there, but we aren't and that's when darkness consumes us, blinds us from the truth that is right in front of us and shields us from the peace fighting to get through to our hearts. ...Wake up.
Within the howling winds of opposition, it's hard to hear the still small whisper of truth. We can let opposition consume our minds or we can contend for His small still voice and resent the noise
It wasn't until recently that I understood that the past is really in the past, and it's okay for me to move forward. It's okay for me to let it go and make room in my heart for the future God has in store. It's okay to miss it, but it's not okay to let it make me miserable. The past only has as much hold on us as we allow it to, and most of the time that hold is actually us holding on to it.
...run towards the arms of Love, dance in its freedom, and bid fear a forever farewell because there's no room for it in your heart.
Sometimes, God will allow you to crash and get hurt to save you from something that could possibly destroy you. You'll see it coming, you'll see the obstacle in front of you and try to avoid it but you won't be able to. You will crash and possible get hurt, but the crash will just be a collision with His grace over your life saving you from something far worse.
