You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.Genesis 50:20 (via therealistcatholic)
Can I say something to young ladies here? I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare. Lots of neat Christian boys, not a lot of Godly men. And we’re working our tails off for you to try to develop some into that. But don’t settle, because it’s better that you be lonely now than you be married and lonely later. Are you tracking with me? It is better that you be lonely now than for you to get married to a man that will teach your kids everything but the way of Jesus.Matt Chandler (via amandaandinteriors)
God created the universe with His life giving breath; Jesus saved the whole of creation with His final breath.
It seems only fitting that we be willing to praise Him with all the breath we can give.T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)
If it’s discouraging, it’s not God.
If it eliminates freedom, it’s not God.
If it says, “Your dreams are too big. You can’t do all that,” it’s not God.
The God I know encourages, sets free, and says, “Your dreams aren’t big enough.”
Grace is wild. Grace unsettles everything. Grace overflows the banks. Grace messes up your hair. Grace is not tame.Doug Wilson (via godmoves)
Grace is offensive to those that live by the law. If your heart has ‘fair’ & ‘not fair’ tabs, you do not understand the gravity of grace.
Let us become more aware of your presence. Let us experience the glory of your goodness.Kari Jobe (via littlethingsaboutgod)
The Lord is smiling at you as you respond to Him in willing obedience- even when you fall short.@ihopkc (via ihopkc)
Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.Ralph Waldo Emerson (via cierrafrances)
