In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.
Psalm 94:19 (via godmoves)
If we do not radiate the light of Christ around us, the sense of the darkness that prevails in the world will increase.
Mother Teresa (via claimedbylove)
When was the last time you declared out loud “I can”? It’s not something people think to do every day. In fact, most people tend to magnify their limitations. They focus on their shortcomings. But scripture makes it plain: all things are possible to those who believe. That’s right! It is possible to see your dreams fulfilled. It is possible to overcome that obstacle. It is possible to climb to new heights. It is possible to embrace your destiny. You may not know how it will all take place. You may not have a plan, but all you have to know is that if God said that you can…you can!
Today, why don’t you begin to open yourself up to the possibility in your future by simply declaring this verse, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength?” At the stoplight, when you’re waiting in line, anytime you have a second, just quote this verse to yourself again. Let it sink down deeply into your heart. As you do, His word will transform you. Faith will rise up in your heart and will boldly embrace the blessings that He has in store for you!
Always be kinder than you feel.
This is the true and impossible story of my very great love. In the hope that she will not read this and reproach me, I have withheld many telling details: her name, the particulars of her birth and upbringing, and any identifying scars or birth marks. All the same, I cannot help but write this for her, to tell her “I’m sorry for every word I wrote to change you, I’m sorry for so many things. I couldn’t see you when you were here and, now that you’re gone, I see you everywhere.” One may read this and think it’s magic, but falling in love is an act of magic, so is writing. It was once said of Catcher In The Rye, “That rare miracle of fiction has again come to pass: a human being has been created out of ink, paper and the imagination.” I am no J.D. Salinger, but I have witnessed a rare miracle. Any writer can attest: in the luckiest, happiest state, the words are not coming from you, but through you. She came to me wholly herself, I was just lucky enough to be there to catch her.
You realize that trying to keep your distance from me will not lessen my affection for you. All efforts to save me from you will fail.

I’m taking a fast from social media for two weeks! I have a lot of awesome things happening soon and I want to be able to fully enjoy them without the distractions of tweets and Instagram likes.
Spring Break is on the horizon. An amazing opportunity to work in a hospital for a couple days in the Child Life services, and the opportunity to reconnect with friends from back home.
I will still be blogging so you can keep up with me on that every Monday (link in profile). GOODBYE friends! See you soon. // #asecondwithsarah #vsco #vscocam (at 🎧First Defeat- Noah Gundersen)
