my dear wormwood:
When they meant to pray for courage, let them really be trying to feel brave. When they say they are praying for forgiveness, let them be trying to feel forgiven. Teach them to estimate the value of each prayer by their success in producing the desired feeling; and never let them suspect how much success or failure of that kind depends on whether they are well or ill, fresh or tired, at the...
in Your beauty alone.
there is something i thought was beautiful. i thought it was pretty on me. but God made it known to me that to Him, it stunk. and again, i’m reminded that whats important is how God sees me, not how others see me or even how i see myself. and again He asks me whether my beauty is found in Christ or found in me. and again, i lay down my crowns in repentance at the feet of the Humble...

ASSASSIN Day 1: paranoia.
do you ever get the feeling… that you’re being watched? that you’re being plotted against? the friends around you can’t be trusted… and even when you do trust them… you’re only waiting for the moment they’ll turn on you. the innocent little faces just waiting for a chance to attack… the day is almost over… and the fact, that i’m...
i noticed that i’m not a very good example to others. hmmm. time to receive grace and be transformed.
new revelation: Jesus feeds the five thousand. He sees all the people and has compassion on them. He sees that they’ll starve if they don’t eat. There’s only a little bit of bread and fish. He takes them and breaks bread and gives thanks. What did he give thanks for? for food? or for a chance to show and give them everlasting life? We can drink all the water we want to quench...
there’s a song in my heart… and you helped me find the words…. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!!! ;)
there’s a song in my heart i want to sing. what are the words?
sometimes God says don’t.—like, in your face don’t. i walked by this sign yesterday on the way to school and God said ‘this is the answer to your question’. WUH? today i was walking to school with a question. and soon enough, there it was.
im coming back...
to the cross. my salvation. and i’m gonna keep coming back. and i’m gonna keep abandoning myself. cus i’m understanding more that… i get in the way of being with Jesus. gosh, joanna.
He will lead me to springs of living waters.
Someday I’ll have riches like no other. Someday. In eternity. Someday I’ll see freedom in its fullness. Someday. In eternity. So whats a little pain? Whats a little wait? Someday in eternity I’ll be. When eternity is waiting for me. Someday I’ll be rejoicing with my Father Someday. In eternity. Someday I’ll be completely full in His love Someday. In...
knowing You, Jesus, knowing You there is no greater thing. You’re my all. You’re the best. You’re my joy—my righteousness. and i love You, Lord.

The Wonderful Life of Super Sam: "Your Will" by... →
dryocean: Aight I have just written a new song, or more accurately the Lord has given me words and a melody to express what I feel inside. I hope this song will be a blessing to those who listen, and would be your prayer as well. Most importantly I hope it glorifies God in some way. This is just the lyrics…
i praise You, the God of our yesterdays. i praise You, the God who is here today. i praise You, our God, as tomorrow comes. i thank You, for grace in our yesterdays. i thank You, for peace in our hearts today. i thank You, our joy, as tomorrow comes. i will trust You, God.
