proverbs31v25:

"If you can’t see the sun you will be impressed by streetlights. If you’ve never felt thunder and lightning you’ll be impressed by fireworks. And if you turn your back on the greatness and majesty of God you’ll fall in love with a world of shadows and short lived pleasures"

Never fail to appreciate the Lord’s majesty

Don’t roll joints, roll up to church. Praise The Lord!

"In this country American means white. Everybody else has to hyphenate."
Toni Morrison (via howardtuniverse)
"And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people."
Romans 2:29 (via deeplyloving)
"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 littlethingsaboutgod)
"It is not the strength of your faith but the object of your faith that actually saves you.

The faith that changes the life and connects to God is best conveyed by the word “trust”. Imagine you are on a high cliff and you lose your footing and begin to fall. Just beside you as you fall is a branch sticking out of the very edge of the cliff. It is your only hope and it is more than strong enough to support your weight. How can it save you? If your mind is filled with intellectual certainty that the branch can support you, but you don’t actually reach out and grab it, you are lost. If your mind is instead filled with doubts and uncertainty that the branch can hold you, but you reach out and grab it anyway, you will be saved. Why? It is not the strength of your faith but the object of your faith that actually saves you. Strong faith in a weak branch is fatally inferior to weak faith in a strong branch."
Timothy Keller  (via jspark3000)
"Christianity does not set faith against thinking. It sets faith against assuming."
Tim Keller (via godmoves)
"That’s the thing about the promises of God and the commands of God. They’re not contrary to your joy! They’re the fulfillment of it!"
Matt chandler (via wongdavidjacob)
"Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies."
Mother Teresa (via awelltraveledwoman)

"I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!"
Psalms‬ ‭27‬:‭13-14‬ (via grace—amazing)

The love of money is such a terrible thing to witness, especially among your family.
