I liked this.
“You deserve a place that feels like home. You deserve some hands to hold. Hands to pull you past the broken moments, hands to catch you when you fall. Eyes to see you. To say you’re there, that you exist, that you change a room, that your presence is significant. Ears to hear you - hear your stories, hear you laugh. Ears to hear your questions and to say they matter. Your questions...

Thursday, July 15, 2010 THE LADY IN 19F While working with To Write Love on Her Arms I’ve heard some amazing stories. I’ve listened, I’ve shared, and I’ve grown. We say it all the time, “your story is important,” because it is. Your story is one that was written with purpose. It’s still being written. Sometimes we suffer. Sometimes we stumble, we fall, and we can’t see how we can possibly get...
THE TITLE WAS REST BUT I CHANGED IT TO: NUMBERS
Tonight is one of those nights in which I’d rather stay up than sleep. I have podcasts I want to listen to, books I want to read, notes I want to write. And even though I think it may be my fault that I feel like there is not enough time in the day to do all the things I want to do, it’s still frustrating. Since I am not feeling that tired, I want to go talk to people, call my friends...

We may ask why God chose faith to be the attitude of the heart by which we would obtain justification. Why could God not have decided to give justification to all those who sincerely show love? Or who show joy? Or contentment? Or humility? Or wisdom? Why did God choose faith as the means by which we receive justification? It is apparently because faith is the one attitude of heart that is the...
An idea just came to me. a no-words room. This came while I was listening to music without words. Just pretty instruments. Still need to expand on my idea, but the thought alone is cool in my mind so far.

chanteee: Freely He gave, so freely I give. I need to take the time to be love. And I cannot love with my own love anymore. My love is fragile, moody, inconsistent, and conditional. Rather, I owe it to the people around me a love that comes only from my Father who loved me first. I owe nothing to Christ….
”Sometimes we get too concerned with doing things & always going when just being with Him is enough.” Love when God speaks through Jadey.
Today I feel God renewing my faith that everything’s gonna be okay. That is a good feeling. My God is a good God.
I looked at you and I could feel a new season coming on. The way you looked down and to the right Staring at your hand, watching as you moved your own fingers. Reminding yourself you’re alive. Our eyes met as you lifted yours and in that moment I saw fear. And I wanted to tell you “Don’t be afraid,” but who am I to say that? For I feel fear too. I wish, together, we could stop feeling so...

ABOUT MARK'S GOSPEL
“Mark’s Gospel is more than a well-told tale, because it claims to present the defining story for all the world for all time. Mark told the story of Jesus, God’s one true Messiah, who had compassion on us and gave his for us. Jesus opened the way for anyone to follow him, so that we can learn to love God and others, as he did, and learn to live with sacrifice and service, as he...

sheol: “This is the magic that will turn your tears into gold. If you look at Jesus crying on the cross, ‘Why me, why have You forsaken me?’, you will still cry, but you’ll never cry ‘Why me?’ the same. When I see Jesus Christ crying on the cross, I see tears producing joy. Jesus Christ did not save us…
2 CORINTHIANS 5:11-20
Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart. If we are out of our mind, it is for the...

sheol: When we study God’s world—the tiny creatures under our microscopes, the vast galaxies within which our sun and planet whirl, the ways of men and women selling and buying in markets, the making of love and war and law and sausages—we are in the very presence of God, which, when we hear the rustle…
