Sometimes I feel like writing, then I talk myself out of it.
I think learning to love without expecting is something I will continue to learn over and over until the day I die. I crave many things I will never obtain, solely because I was not created to. At least that is the conclusion I have come to. I don’t like wanting things, or the feeling of needing anything. Luckily, I find comfort and peace in my God, who constantly reminds me He is more than I will ever need. How selfish of me to want love from others when I have an eternal amount from the creator. Stupid flesh.
A Christian man who takes the lead in sexual purity, and who tells the woman that her heart means more to him than her body, and her purity is more valuable to him than his own pleasure, liberates her from a cruel bondage and gives her a blessing that words can hardly describe.

A sure sign of the Holy Spirit’s working is that Christ is magnified- not people. When the Holy Spirit truly moves, God is the one praised. Jesus is the one lifted up. …Let’s pray that God would empower us so radically that we would get no glory. That people would see our works and glorify God.

God’s presence is not the same as the feeling of God’s presence and He may be doing most for us when we think He is doing least.

A smile starts on the lips, A grin spreads to the eyes, A chuckle comes from the belly; But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, Overflows, and bubbles all around

I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him.
But God doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust Him so completely that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations where we will be in trouble if He doesn’t come through.
