Christ can't be put on paper nor broken up into rules. Christ has to be experienced with joy.
We need to be so focused on God that the outside noise, even our own noise is just background noise, and every step we take is because the Father says, "go" and every stop we make is because the Father says, "hold on" and every dream we pursue is because the Father says, "continue on".
Take that first step in faith trusting that His love will carry you through every adventure until the journey takes you home.
The world has made love seem superficial, but love is the truest and the realest thing that exists.
If I don't love myself for who I am, flaws and all, how can I love the person next to me?
His love will change you and you will NEVER BE THE SAME.
When those days of putting God on the bottom shelf are over, and I blast on some worship I wonder how I ever went so long without spending time with Him? The struggle can be very real when it comes to making time for God, but when we make God the priority, when we start with God all our struggles become very unreal.
To Rejoice in the Lord is a decision to choose Christ over circumstances, people, decisions, feelings.
