A piece of advice for all my followers: Literally, trust God. He has things figured. Sometimes we don’t understand things but rest in the fact that he has a plan. And that plan is gooood.
You all have to listen to this song: My obsession atm, the Stand - Hillsong

I’m tagging: anyone who fancies it
The love of Christ to sinners is the very essence of the amazing gospel. That He should love us at all, and care for our souls—that He should love us before we love Him, or even know anything about Him, that He should love us so much as to come into the world to save us, take our nature on Him, bear our sins, and die for us on the cross—all this is so incredible. It is a kind of love to which there is nothing like it, among us. The narrow selfishness of our human nature cannot fully comprehend it.
But the love of Christ to Christians is no less wonderful, in its way, than His love to sinners, though far less considered. That He should bear all our countless problems and burdens from grace to glory—that He should never be tired of our endless inconsistencies and petty provocations—that He should go on forgiving and forgetting incessantly, and never be provoked to cast us off and give up—all this is A M A Z I N G indeed! His patience is infinite. His compassions are a well that is never exhausted. His love is “a love that passes knowledge.”
The three keys to being free from comparison is:
1. Knowing who you are in Christ.
3. Patience with yourself because you love yourself.
Let’s keep being faithful in praying for the Iraqi Christians.
I think the problem is that Christians seem to think that the Bible is God’s love letter to humanity. So we can just sort of sit back and point people to the love letter, expecting them to understand. I think it’s about time that the church realised that we are God’s love letter to humanity, so let’s get to work.
