Your grace is enough.
Romania: my heart is happiest here.
I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you...– F. Scott Fitzgerald (via eastatlanta)
here we goooo...
tomorrow begins a month of travel: Budapest, Romania, Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, Milan, Paris, London, home. ecstatic. cannot wait to see what adventures this month holds. I’m feeling good about this.
how do normal people sleep? what is it like to NOT be awake at 2:46 in the morning? First stop when I get home from Europe: the sleep doctor (is there even such a thing?… I don’t know… but I am delusional… because it’s 2:46 in the morning. AND I NEVER SLEEP!).
“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you… And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, and establish you.” 1 Peter 5:6-10 God, restore me I pray.
If there were a few things I wish I could force myself to believe with my whole heart… it would be this: your value does not come from how others have treated you, or even how you have treated others, remember that. When the people in your life fail you, and you fail those people… it is only further evidence that only He is truly faithful. In Christ, even with your flaws, you are loved...
Sleepless as they get.
planning for Europe, packing for my missions trip to Romania, figuring out how in the world student loans work, trying to sneak in a social life and somehow find time for sleep all before Tuesday… holy moly.
An infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children. He does not...– A.W. Tozer
when will I learn to stop doing the things that are simply no good for my heart. well really, rather, when will I learn what is good for my heart?
“When we have the courage to look in the faces of brothers and sisters whose bodies are malnourished and whose brains are deformed because they have no food, Christ will change our desires, and we will long to sacrifice our resources for the glory of His name among them.” -David Platt, Radical I just read this and felt sick with conviction. God, make my life’s greatest desire...
Worry implies that we don’t quite trust that God is big enough, or powerful...– Crazy Love by Francis Chan
I hope you never have to think about anything as much as I think about you.– Jonathan Safran Foer (via thatkindofwoman)
from Seattle to Alaska and now exploring Victoria, Canada… this trip has been nothing shy of magical, reminding me how much I have to be thankful for. Minus the wee little bout of sea sickness, it has been the perfect getaway. The sights I’ve seen and the company of my dear family are just unbeatable… once again, I wish this summer would never end.
I never want this summer to end.
