Fuck all y’all
I have friends who pursue Christ, pursue friends and family. I have friends that never make an effort to reach out to me. I have friends that reassure, that yes, I am not needed. Not wanted. I have friends who pursue with guilt. I am alone on my own, hollow inside my bones. Yearning to feel pursued. Christ pursued me on the cross, friends pursued me into salvation. Friends abandoned me. Once you claim salvation, no longer will people pursue you. I have friends who delight in Him. I have friends who don’t care for my aches or pains.
"When I was eight and got my hair cut short, I cried about it the whole way home. My mom looked me in the eyes and said, “It’ll grow back. It won’t stay short forever.” I wasn’t comforted until it did.
When you broke my heart, I cried about it until I couldn’t. I looked at myself in the mirror, puffy-eyed, with a permanent frown on my face, and I said to myself, “I will be happy again without him. The pain won’t last forever.” It’s been 7 months and the comforting lie I told myself that day doesn’t feel like a lie anymore. The happiness grew back within me.
Everything grows back, nothing is permanent, but it just takes time. It also takes time to accept that. Time is the foundation on which growth is able to be constructed." — time parallels8/24/14 (via depresant)
"God is always seeking you. Every sunset. Every clear blue sky. Each ocean wave. The starry hosts of night. He blankets each new day with the invitation, ‘I am here.’" — Louie Giglio (via jesusislovej)
"My sin in the past: forgiven. My current struggles: covered. My future failures: paid in full all by the marvelous, infinite, matchless grace found in the atoning work of the cross of Jesus Christ." — Matt Chandler (via yeoreum-ah)
"But, first, remember, remember, remember the signs. Say them to yourself when you wake in the morning and when you lie down at night, and when you wake in the middle of the night. And whatever strange things may happen to you, let nothing turn your mind from following the signs. And secondly, I give you a warning. Here on the mountain I have spoken to you clearly: I will not often do so down in Narnia. Here on the mountain, the air is clear and your mind is clear; as you drop down into Narnia, the air will thicken. Take great care that it does not confuse your mind. And the signs which you have learned here will not look at all as you expect them to look, when you meet them there. That is why it is so important to know them by heart and pay no attention to appearances. Remember the signs and believe the signs. Nothing else matters." — C.S Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia (via sarah-sea)
CS Lewis had a gift for transforming the Gospel into something very sneakily beautiful
