“I did not want to turn him aside from the call of God, to distract his energies, or in any way to stand between him and a thoroughgoing surrender. This was what I understood real love to mean…” —04/25/12 Mrs. Elliot just spoken my silence.
It may not seem obvious right now, but God, your Sovereign and Powerful Father in heaven, has BIG plans for you. Right now, He looks at you, and knows that there will come a day when you will be a part of something great He has prepared. Just hold on to your faith.
“What if God doesn’t just love you because He’s God and that’s His job? What if the truth is that God actually likes you? Yes, you - right there, looking at this screen - you with the zits and the past and the lust and the blazing self-doubt - you with that weird laugh and the deep hurts and questions - you. What if God just really likes you for exactly who you are? Can you bear it?” —Lee Younger (via leeyounger)
