Remember how Jesus takes the small amount of bread loaves and fish to feed and satisfy thousands of people? 

He does the exact same thing with the little things we lay at His feet. A slice of pie? A cup of coffee? A spontaneous visit to the florist? Every single time.

and how can there be anything in the end but love? if the evil of this world runs so deep, how can the light not be so much deeper? a deepness that contains the sweetness and tenderness of love. anything but love sinks us straight into the mire of the world. if we are not loving, we are sinking….

Patrick aka padehler recorded a cover of Green Eyes by Coldplay for me, not knowing that it’s my favorite Coldplay song (sobbing emoji).

Enjoy, Tumblr.

a desire for our own far-off country… The scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never visited. C.S. Lewis describing his longing for Something more when he was still an atheist. (via nineteengoingon20)

What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back. Chester Bennington (via yesdarlingido)

At the beginning of a new season, I think it’s easy for us (me) to determine in what ways we are going to ‘grow.’ We say phrases like ‘I plan on growing in patience/humility/wisdom this season.’ Challenging ourselves and expecting schedules of growth make life about us and our own abilities and the glory of our new patience or whatever it may be.

Growth isn’t at all about challenging ourselves and growing our own abilities and strengths. It’s about trusting the Holy Spirit with what we have; ‘this is it. this is all I’ve got, but it’s Yours’ and believing He will do immeasurably more.

God is always seeking you. Every sunset. Every clear blue sky. Each ocean wave. The starry hosts of night. He blankets each new day with the invitation, ‘I am here.’ Louie Giglio  (via freedomfound)

professoralbusdumbledore:

when you hate your legs 
remember that they carried you through the hardest parts of your life. they get you out of bed every day and take you to what you love.

when you hate your stomach
remember that it helped you gain strength. it holds the memories of deep laughter and great meals. it is full of warmth and joy.

when you hate your arms
remember that they are strong, which makes you strong. but they are also soft and can be used to cuddle and hold the ones you love.
