Jesus was more brokenhearted, scarred and betrayed than anyone in history. Yet, He did not shut Himself off from us; Instead, He calls us unto Him. If you cannot trust anyone, right now, please trust Him. His scars are proof that you are loved more than you know. He will guide you through this pain, He will sit with you when you are weak, and He will carry you until you can walk again. Christ wants to see you run again, He wants to see you live in His glory. You just have to take His hand and walk; it will take all of you, but you will get all of Him.
He is worth it.T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via blissfulbeardsdoitbest)
Our relationship with God can feel like a wrestling match; struggling to understand our role, His plan or even just in loving Him. We must learn to submit, it’s always a fight to do even that, but when we let go and allow His spirit to invade our lives, we find a new side of God that we never knew; it’s the side that shows Fatherly love. The love that wraps you up in a blanket and holds you in the storm, it’s the love that renews and heals, it’s the love that will wipe away your tears and dust off your knees.
Submit and find this love that God wants to show you, just know that this love demands all of you. You are no longer just God’s friend, you are His beloved.T.B. LaBerge // Jesus, His Grace and the Gospel (via blissfulbeardsdoitbest)
The more you seek God in the silence, the more you will encounter him in the noise.Ryan Mann, seminarian (via firerainingdown)
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.C.S. Lewis (via community4christ)
