For You I Live.
The Eternal God, The Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t grow tired or become weary. His understanding is beyond reach. He gives strength to those who grow tired and increases the strength of those who are weak…the strength of those who wait with hope in The Lord will be renewed. Isaiah 40.

When Jesus said “Love your enemies,” maybe He even meant those parts of ourselves with which we’re not yet at peace.

When you make deposits in people, you are making deposits in eternity, and that is what pleases the heart of God!

Sometimes our brains are our own worst enemies because grace isn’t logical.

Your real, new self will not come as long as you are looking for it. It will come when you are looking for Him.
C.S. Lewis (via runnin-onfaith) (via the-lost-are-found, joelwgnr) (via palegreenstarss) (via thecozycup)
You, Lord, give true peace to those who depend on you, because they trust you. So, trust the Lord always, because he is our rock forever.
Isaiah 26:3  (via landslidelandon)

When you feel you’re drowning, look up and see the sun peaking through the waves. Then, swim as hard as you can, because one day, it will become easier to breathe

Remember, you are loved. <3

The Qualities of God’s Glamour Girl
By Jacqueline J. Overpeck

Who is God’s glamour girl and what are her admirable qualities?

According to Scripture, she is:

G – Gorgeous inside and out
She fears the Lord knowing He is the source of all good things.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

Proverbs 31:30

L – Laughter
She’s isn’t afraid to laugh out loud and she looks for ways to encourage others.

…the joy of the LORD is your strength.
Nehemiah 8:10

A – All about adoration
She’s got a heart for applauding her King. She loves to praise and worship her God.

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Psalm 100:1-2

M – Mercy
Her heart is full of compassion and her hands are ready to serve.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:12-14

O – Original
She’s uniquely herself. She places her whole life in God’s hands—knowing as His creation she already shines like a star.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…
Psalm 139:13-14

U – Understanding
She has a ravenous appetite for wisdom and she loves to read the Bible. She’s thirsty for truth and delights in understanding the mysteries of God.

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established;
through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

Proverbs 24:3-4

R – Righteousness
She keeps herself pure. She desires to be an untarnished vessel for God’s anointing to flow through. Nothing is more important to God’s Glamour Girl than establishing heaven’s kingdom on earth.

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long.

Psalm 71:14-15

TRUE GLAMOUR
God’s glamour girl is gorgeous inside and out. She’s filled with laughter.
She has a song in her heart. Mercy springs from her spirit. She’s totally original. Her Bible is handy. She uses her unique gifts and talents to share the saving message of Jesus with the world.

My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes - many times - my feelings are out of sync with the truth. When that happens - and it happens every day in some measure - I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth.
John Piper  (via thisisyourmaverick)
