Flood my Soul with your Love.– Amber Brooks, Come Like You Promised
I can buy, invest, and temporarily satisfy vanity, but ultimately it is God who can Complete me.
Pienso en como esta…
I never knew Justice, until I found Freedom.– Amber Brooks, “He Found Me”
The first time I’ve had a cold-sore outbreak since School days… This month has taken an incredible toll on my immune system. I’ve been staying home to watch my dad and take him in and out of the hospital for appointments and surgery, in addition to receiving new responsibilities at work, which require that I drive all over LA County, stand at Shiseido counters for 6-7 hours at...
In the New Testament, pride is in the Greek, huperephanos, which means “to...– John W. Ritenbaugh, Excerpted from: Faith (Part 6)
depressing dreams take a toll on my soul.
I’m so freaking MESSED UP.
The Unfailing One.
‘He faileth not.’ Zephaniah 3:5. I. HE who hath led, will lead All through the wilderness; He who hath fed, will feed; He who hath blessed, will bless He who hath heard thy cry, Will never close His ear; He who hath marked thy faintest sigh, Will not forget thy tear. He loveth always, faileth never; So rest on Him, to–day, for ever! II. He who hath made thee whole Will heal thee day...
When the tempest passes, the wicked is no more, but the righteous is established...– Proverbs 10:25, ESV
For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than...– Hosea 6:6
Isa Couvertier- Pressing into you.
I’m pressing into you I’m pressing into you now. Against you have I sinned and did evil in your sight. I’m pressing into you I’m pressing into you now. For with you there’s forgiveness. With you there’s redemption. With you there is healing. With you there’s forgiveness. With you there’s redemption. With you there is healing. I’m pressing...
Isa Couvertier- In the waiting
I’m in the waiting for your voice to thunder inside of me. I’m in the waiting for my heart to mature in love for you. Your heart in mine, my heart in yours. This fiery love for your name deep inside. (x2) Declare your name to me that I may love you more. Declare your name to me that I may know you more and more. I’m in the waiting for your voice to thunder inside of me....
Tenho sentido bem vazia hoje em dia… Deus, o Senhor sempre está aqui ao lado de mim, e o seu espírito santo dentro de mim. Eu rezo…construi uma ponte entre o conhecimento e o meu coração.
Eu não sei do que eu espero. Por favor, ajuda-me ter um visto claro das minhas prioridades!
...changed the Truth of God into a lie
Excerpted from The Great Divorce, C. S. Lewis: Hell begins with a grumbling mood, always complaining, always blaming others…but you are still distinct from it. You may even criticize it in yourself and wish you could stop it. But there may come a day when you can no longer. Then there will be no you left to criticize the mood or even to enjoy it, but just the grumble itself, going on...
In the Fog
The more I become confident in my salvation, the more I become aware of the unsaved. The ignorant, the confused, the lost, the hurt, the rebels, the ones in bondage… God, I have no doubt that You are Sovereign and that all is in Your Hands and I know that You have allowed us the gift of Free Will. Sometimes though, I wish we were like robots, programmed to Live Righteously in Your eyes and...
I push and pull you away not knowing what I have...
Life not following your desired direction does not disprove God’s Goodness.
a convicção pessoal
No fim, só importa o seguinte: O que significa o evangelho para você e como tem te mudado? (Ultimately, it comes down to this: What does the Gospel mean to you and how has it Changed you?)
Flesh die, Spirit thrive.
Romans 2:1-3 (1) Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. (2) But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. (3) And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will...
My heart feels burdened and truly pained for those who have fallen away from the Faith.
I know that I have changed. I know that I have grown. The little that man cannot see, God sees and acknowledges.
A sleepless night…for all the right reasons.
There is way too much baggage i don’t want to deal with right now.
growth in vain?
Wolves in sheep’s clothing in the church are scary business. There is always a fine line between Truth and deception. Why can’t we simply Worship God for who He is and not have any selfish expectations? Ah, the flaws of human nature.
The fish dies if we do not honor the reality of its nature.– Timothy J. Keller
i will not allow people to dictate my life.

THISSSSSSSSSSS ajanaysworld: - Rob Eager
God, this is an incredibly heavy load to carry at the moment. Too much weight at once. Will you please lighten it up a bit?
eu odeio tais pesadelos.
Agora minha força é encontrada em ti. Alegria que não pode ser tomada.
Ele me fez assim.
Most people in our culture believe that, if there is a God, we can relate to him...– Timothy J. Keller, The Reason for God
Agora está meu tempo de conforto.
Todos têm uma história para contar e minha ainda está sendo escrita.
A confirmation of hopelessness →
A prime example of legalism and “protocol” getting in the way of morality.
Blindness is an appropriate description of sin’s effect. For example, a prophecy in Zephaniah 1:17 says, “I will bring distress upon men, and they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD.” Sin causes people to grope spiritually at noon just as the blind grope in darkness (Deuteronomy 28:29). Sin puts us in darkness as blindness does, but spiritual...
