"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance.To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places.To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget."

This time last year I was unemployed, broke, and suicidal.

Today, I just got the keys to my first house.

Needed this today

the things or people that you hope to forget about are always the ones that never seem to disappear off the face of your mind. they hold a force that I can never grasp the meaning of.

Too many people feel empty or sad. We turn to alcohol or distractions to help us escape reality. Instead of wasting what limited time we have on this earth, we should not distract ourselves for too long otherwise we miss the beauty that surrounds us.

So many things happen in life and the succeeding events can lead you to see that prayer really does work and that there really is a god over you.

“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world…” (Ephesians 1:4, NIV)

Did you know that God chose you before the foundations of the earth? Before the worlds were ever formed, He knew you. And, He didn’t create you to be average. He didn’t create you to barely get by. No, He created you to excel! Not only has He chosen you, but He has equipped you with everything you need to live and thrive in this life. He has deposited seeds of greatness inside every person. But in order to tap into those seeds of greatness, you have to believe this and act on it.

Too many people today are going around with low self-esteem, feeling inferior like they don’t have what it takes. But that is living a lie. And as long as we have a poor self-image, we’re not going to experience God’s best. In order to be all that God has called us to be, we have to see ourselves as chosen, valuable and victorious.

Today, meditate on this truth. Let it sink down deep into your heart. Let it build confidence and security in you. As you understand your value in the eyes of God, you’ll be empowered to live the life of victory He has prepared for you!

We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire, often against reality, against their benefit, and always, in the end, a disappointment, because it does not fit them.
