when I was in church I thought “what if today is the day Jesus is coming back..” my smile grew bigger and there were butterflies in my stomach
went to Wisconsin exactly one year ago!
- listening to “You” by Hillsong. to me, it’s the best for calming down. especially when i just found out school starts in about ten hours.. He has always given me peace in my heart when I’ve needed it. thank You.
When my daughter was a toddler, I used to take her to a park not far from our apartment. One day as she was playing in a sandbox, an ice-cream salesman approached us. I purchased her a treat, and when I turned to give it to her, I saw her mouth was full of sand. Where I had intended to put a delicacy, she had put dirt.
Did I love her with dirt in her mouth? Absolutely. Was she any less of my daughter with dirt in her mouth? Of course not. Was I going to allow her to keep the dirt in her mouth? No way. I loved her right where she was, but I refused to leave her there. I carried her over to the water fountain and washed out her mouth. Why? Because I love her.
God does the same for us. He holds us over the fountain. “Spit out the dirt, honey,” our Father urges. “I’ve got something better for you.” And so he cleanses us of filth; immorality, dishonesty, prejudice, bitterness, greed. We don’t enjoy the cleansing; sometimes we even opt for the dirt over the ice cream. “I can eat dirt if I want to!” we pout and proclaim. Which is true—we can. But if we do, the loss is ours. God has a better offer.” —Max Lucado (via nonelikejesus)
” You can come while your heart feels numb, you could just lie down and rest. Or lift your eyes to the open sky we could come alive and flyyyyyyy! “
I don’t ever want to stop singing this song.
