José González - Heartbeats.
i can feel my heart shifting from a constant lull of frustration into a swell of hope and wonder and an ‘i forgive you’ is finally on the tip of my tongue after so long of wishing my fist would just connect with your jaw already. you are only human and while what you did is inhumane you are still human and i still have to find the piece of you that God loves. and i have to allow...

things I've learned recently.
lukeseventeen21: Love is not a feeling (and neither is joy or peace or faith) Faith must be walked out in order for it to mean anything or affect you (as must joy, peace, trust, and love) Change is good. It’s also very hard. I can decide who I will become. I can decide what I feel. I can decide the way I react to things. I do not determine my circumstances. But I determine whether or not I (and...
i’m seeing a counselor for the first time tonight. about time. it’s gonna be good to get everything out, in order, to someone to doesn’t know me, someone who can listen & ask me objective questions. then maybe i can figure out how to get past this thing, figure out how to really forgive him, figure out how to not let this be a part of me. because i thought i had forgiven him...

wakeuptoyourstarboardbride-deac asked: Hi, so I am really glad that you posted that interview about Rob Bell. I read Drops Like Stars about a year ago and absolutely fell in love with it. And I just bought Velvet Elvis a couple months ago and it helped me out a really deep, dark hole that I was stuck in for a long time. Now that all this controversy has come out about Love Wins, I don't know what to think. Do you think that...

Rob Bell Love Wins Interview On Good Morning America i’ve always been sketched by rob. and definitely after i heard about this book. but this interview, oh my word. the words chosen in his responses are legit. and i love that he says, look, hell isn’t some distance place - it’s here. and heaven isn’t some distant place - it’s here. you choose every moment. YES....
lukeseventeen21: … I’ve found that love triumphs in adversity. And I’ve found that love looks like meekness. Love looks like humbling yourself before another person. Love looks like “I’m sorry”. Love doesn’t always feel good either. It doesn’t always have butterflies and it doesn’t feel easy sometimes. Sometimes, it hurts so much that all I can do is cry. But it is good. … Pain is a...
