You make me want to be better. And not because I feel inferior to you, but because I truly believe that you deserve someone in your life who strives to always offer joy and love. And someone who can weather storms when they come. I think about certain moments and my eyes water because I am filled to the brim with happiness. In breaking down my walls, you’ve taught me that letting someone in isn’t always dangerous. In being honest with your intentions, you’ve taught me that there is light in the darkness. And I feel as if God has taught me all this before but now it’s all rushing back, in such a real way. We were talking about waves one night. I was trying to explain about the waves of love that has pulled me under… and in comparison you talked about doing good in order for good to come to you. And I’m feeling the waves. Rushing over me. One after another. I’m walking this journey and God is there always reminding me that I am loved and that there is hope. There is a good in all of us, because of Him. And you are the blessing I could never be more thankful for. Please give me a minute.. I’m having one of those moments.

"Someday you’ll find the right person, and you’ll learn to have a lot more confidence in yourself. That’s what I think. So don’t settle for anything less. In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount"

aaesha:

People only notice when a flower is blooming. They’ll notice its beauty, they’ll watch it for hours. They rarely notice/care when the flower is wilting, dying, decaying.

But the garderer knows. And he will mend it. And that is sufficient.

Questioning my faith.

You know what I miss? My old home-church. I miss the animation in the beginning that says, “We’re glad you’re here!” and I miss the vibrant hearts and tear-shedding worships. I think about attending the events and services. I think about wanting to sit in the back so I’m not recognized or approached by anyone. My biggest fear? Is being loved on in such a Godly way that it may bring me to tears. I’m afraid of being taken seriously when it comes to burdens and I’m afraid to let go of this makeshift empire I’ve built for myself called “denial” and “relying on myself”. Don’t get me wrong, I am rather content with how life is. I am so, so thankful how things have turned out. But I know I have been eternally changed and let me tell you, it has been at least two full years of me being away from God and on the odd occasion: trying to be closer. Two years. More than once, this question crosses my mind: is this worth it? I want to let go. I want to hold on tighter. Where am I supposed to be? How will I let this Amazing Love in?

u deserve a nice boy who texts u back and buys u tacos and doesn’t kiss other girls behind ur back and who makes u laugh and thinks ur funny

remember there is a spider that can spin a web thick enough to stop a train, and scientists have figured out how to record our dreams so we can re watch them. u probably have a couple of mongolian war lord atoms in u and a hummingbird can recall every single flower it has visited. there is so much to know and find out if we keep on living. u can do it friends :)
