''She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.''
I'm Ella, i'm 16 and live in England. I love the Lord and wanted to make a tumblr dedicated to sharing things that have inspired me in my walk with him. Be sure to check out the links below for more and feel free to ask anything that's on your heart♥
"I pray because I can’t help myself. I pray because I’m helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn’t change God- it changes me."
"A relationship that lasts forever is one with Christ in the centre. Two people putting God first and seeking him in every way possible. Its about trusting one another and trusting Gods plan and that he will build a relationship that lasts a life time."
This weekend, me and graceupongrvce and proverbs31v25 are going away for the weekend with three of our friends from school. I’d love it if you could pray for us: that we would be selfless and serve our friends faithfully, that we would be able to show Jesus’ love to them through our actions throughout the weekend, that God will give us wisdom for when we talk to them about Jesus, but most importantly that our friends would come to know Jesus as their saviour this weekend!
"It’s really cool you want to be passionately in love with Jesus as much as you can, but please don’t beat yourself up about this. Be prepared for the seasons when you’ll barely hang on to God with an intellectual thread, and other seasons where you’ll be so head-over-heels for Jesus that you’re getting tattoos of him on your ribcage. Be ready to be honest in your dry valleys, and be ready to rejoice on the mountaintop.
Enjoy both seasons, because both help you grow and both have significance in our lives. The winter and fall teach you to grow deep roots into God even when you don’t feel Him, and the summer and spring are those powerful weeks of blooming fruits and plentiful harvest that will have you laughing and weeping at the same time.
Soon you’ll also see: loving Jesus is not even really up to you, because he’s the one who woos, who draws, who beckons, who calls. Loving Him is the easy part; God loving you cost His Son. The more you know that it’s less about you, the more free you will be to love God all the more."
“Today I know that such memories are the key not to the past, but to the future. I know that the experiences of our lives, when we let God use them, become the mysterious and perfect preparation for the work He will give us to do. ”
