I wish to live a life that causes my soul to dance inside my body.
You do not need to take other people’s pain and suffering into your heart. This world is filled with enough suffering without trying to spread it. Rather, touch the pain and suffering you find and meet it with with love and spaciousness. That is what we call compassion.
There is nothing remotely good within me but Christ.
We must keep in mind that God is angered by sin because of its disintegrating effect on us. God hates sin because God loves the sinner. God seeks to conquer sin but not because God is too pure to be in its presence. After all, God is onmipresent. God seeks to conquer sin because God is for us.
Your most profound and intimate experiences of worship will likely be in your darkest days — when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when you’re out of options, when the pain is great — and you turn to God alone.
When was the last time you let God’s grace be enough? When did you allow Him to be the foundation to everything you do? When did you let Christ bind your wounds and kiss your scars?
Until you have let Him be all that you live for; you will always be looking for something to live for.
