"Unfortunately, we forget the cruel details of the agonizing sacrifice God made on our behalf. Familiarity breeds complacency. Even before his crucifixion, the Son of God was stripped naked, beaten until almost unrecognizable, whipped, scorned and mocked, crowned with thorns, and spit on contemptuously. Abused and ridiculed by heartless men, he was treated worse than an animal. Then, nearly unconscious from blood loss, he was forced to drag a cumbersome cross up a hill, was nailed to it, and was left to die the slow, excruciating torture of death by crucifixion. While his lifeblood drained out, hecklers stood by and shouted insults, making fun of his pain and challenging his claim to be God.” - Rick Warren

You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.

I want to gracefully let go of the things I thought I wanted for the future and hold fast to whatever God has for me now.

"The BEST thing that can happen to you on this earth is to experience the love, grace and preferential treatment of God. He is always there, even when we don’t see it, he is working. His love has never once forgotten about us."

 Anonymous  Hi Ella, So I like this guy, and I know he doesn't like me. I know the likelihood of us being more than friends is slim to none. I have a really good time hanging out with him and we have a lot in common, and he's a fun friend to explore my area with. However, every time I hang out with him, I know I have feelings for him. Any advice? My friends think I should stop hanging out with him, but he's a likable guy and it's nice to have a friend to go to concerts and hiking with...#confliced!

If i were you, i’d contrinue to pray about the situation and  just carry on being friends and hanging out with him. Enjoy his companionship and friendship, life is too short not to enjoy doing things with people you enjoy!! 

Single or married, my concern isn’t my current relationship status or if it will change. I am not worried about figuring it out. All I want to be consumed with is loving, serving, worshiping, knowing, and living for Jesus Christ.

When you teach a child writing, you hold its hand while it forms the letters: that is, it forms the letters because you are forming them. We love and reason because God loves and reasons and holds our hand while we do it.

C.S. Lewis//Mere Christianity

This book stays with you in a way I can’t explain.

The breadth of God’s love is the world; the length is forever; the depth is the cross; and the height that He takes us to, from the depth of our sin, and our shame, and our hell, is heaven itself!

My marriage is going to consist of a lot of camping & bible study dates to rustic coffee shops.
