"I’m gonna pray, and sing, and hope; I’m gonna weep, and beg, and moan; I’m gonna fight, and struggle, and doubt. But in the end, I’m gonna be His and He is gonna be mine. For my life is not my own, but the product of a God who breathed life into dust and said “Follow Me, out into the storm.” and if I fall, He is quick to answer, for He is the God who calms the storms, and He is the God who is with us in it all.”
Does she scare you a little? Good. She should make you fear her love, so that when she lets you be apart of it, you won’t take it lightly. She should remind you of the power that beauty brings, that storms reside in her veins, and that she still wants you in the middle of it all. Do not take this soul for granted, for she is fierce, and she can take you places that you never thought you could go; but she is still loving in the midst of it all, like the calm rain after a storm, she can bring life. Learn her, and cherish her, respect her, and love her; for she is so much more than a pretty face, she is a soul on fire.

I am throwing all my good works overboard, and lashing myself to the plank of free grace; for I hope to swim to glory on it.

You were the hardest lesson I ever had to learn.

He whispered he loved me, and the storm in me fell silent.

You cannot complete me, I cannot complete you.
A relationship cannot make two individuals whole, that is why we must be willing to give over our whole lives, even the life of the one person you love most, to Christ.
If you seek salvation in the arms of another, you will find more brokenness, but if you seek Christ, you will find grace; and that is of monumental importance in any relationship.
I can say you are beautiful, but the reality is that Christ offers more than words; that is greater than anything in this soul can offer.
If I am to love you, I must point you daily to the Father. If I am to care for you, I must be Christ daily. If I am to honor and cherish your heart, I must be willing to surrender it to Christ daily.
No other cornerstone is a relationship, or a single life, more worthy to be built on than the cornerstone of Christ.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

Don’t you look at what I had for you
and call it weak.
Not when you’re the one
afraid of it.
Unsent Letters to You (sjm)
You are such a rare person. You are the boy version of myself. You look at life so differently; you take in the beauty around you. You see what every person overlooks. You are adventurous. You look at me with those beautiful blue eyes and I cant help but to ask God to make you stay in my life for forever.
Even if that means loving you from afar and being there for you when you need me. And being that friend that just goes on adventures with you until 2am. Because in this moment I realize I can’t not have you in my life. So I would rather be your friend and love you up-close than to lose you and love you from very far away.
I think I love you. And it scares me that I might never get to tell you that.
