God is good. things may not be perfect, but God is good. situations may bring challenges, but God is good. people may fail - even come & go, but God is still good. no matter what we face, that doesn’t change - ever.
“What’s holding you back from humility? What’s holding you back from gentleness? What’s standing in the way of you being a servant to the people you’re around today? I know it’s scary, and I know it probably feels like the last thing you want to do, but what if the opposite is true? What if serving others right now, today, in gentle humility is the most satisfying thing you could ever do? Wanna find out?”—Lee Younger (via leeyounger)

I am learning what it means to fall in love with Christ, to see Him in every circumstance in my life, and to follow whole heartedly after Him. It’s not always easy, but I’m learning to see how worth it, it really is.
“Don’t pray that God would teach you how to love like He loves; pray that He would fill you with Himself and that He would love in and through you. Don’t pray that He would teach you to have joy; pray that the living God full of joy would enter into you. Don’t pray that He would teach you how to be peaceful; ask for the God of peace, the Prince of peace to infill you. Because if you try to imitate in your own strength, you will be a miserable replica. But if you allow the impartation of Jesus Christ to overtake you, suddenly it all works because it is Him imitating Himself, and He is very good at being God.”—Eric Ludy (via sheshallnotbemoved)
