Don’t you understand? Don’t you see? This moment is the moment that you were made for. And you were not created to sit in shadows and take orders from darkness. The demons listen to you because within you runs the blood of the most ultimate sacrifice and nothing can overcome that. Inside of you is a heart that beats and plays music for your creator, and He has called you beloved and He has called you conqueror…So stop dancing for the world. Stop acting for the generation around you and rise up because you were born for such a time as this.
I will not sit back as my hands turn to dust because I am not using them. I will not watch my feet become black because they so desire to run and have not had the chance. I am not going to taste my tongue disintegrating in my mouth because I have not taken every chance I’ve had to use it.
I get a new beginning in each moment, and I’m claiming victory over this one, now, and the one after it, for He who called me, and for the glory of His name.
You’re free. Why are you still living like you have something to prove?
lol aww Jules you found my Tumblr! :)

Mike is coming over for dinner tonight to meet my parents…
I am all kinds of excited and nervous.
one of my best friends, Julie, just bought her wedding dress!!!!!! AH.
she’s getting married next August.
she was one of my first friends when i moved to this city a few years ago… we clicked right away. she’s always been one of the hugest examples to me, an immense encouragement, and such an incredibly indescribable blessing.
we’ve grown apart over the last year or so since she went away to school. it’s such a hard feeling to describe when i think about how i wish we hadn’t grown so much apart.. i still see her every few months but i wish it was the same as it used to be.
i love her so much, more than i could ever say in a little blurb.
i will ball my eyes out at her wedding.
i am so thankful for her, and so stoked for her to be her husband’s wife !
love is so freaking beautiful.
Heaven is breaking through.
I’m taking psychology in school, I love it.
As for faith, I grew up with Christian parents so the influence was always there for me, but it became a personal thing when I was around 14 or 15. It became very real to me very quickly because I was starting to learn what people meant when they said God loved me. I was learning that His love is way more than a distant awkward ‘oh yeah, that girl Rachelle, she’s not too bad’ love… i was starting to actually feel it and I finally felt that He actually knew me more than I knew myself. I studied my bible more and more and when you do that you begin to get to know Him, and the moment you realize that you’re starting to understand what He’s like, you don’t ever want to stop learning. You get to the point where it becomes the best part of your life, the most intense, the most peaceful… and so it becomes a daily thing because it’s too sweet not to be.
I think you should definitely check out that bible :)
it’d be good to start reading in John. it basically lays out what Jesus is about. it’s a gooder.
