He’s faithful.

But not just when the pain is ending and the understanding comes.
He was faithful in the midst of our hurt, when we were filled with confusion.

He doesn’t suddenly become faithful when we finally come to know what He was doing the whole time we thought He had left us.

When we were unfaithful, He was faithful.
When we didn’t understand, He was faithful.
When we hated Him, He was faithful.
When we blamed Him, He was faithful.
When we marred His reputation, He was faithful.

When we left- He stayed.
When we cursed- He blessed.
When we hated- He loved.

He is faithful.
He was faithful.
He has always been faithful.

(And if the only time you call Him faithful is when you aren’t facing trouble, then you must realize that it was not Him who was unfaithful during that time, but you.)

Anonymous asked: What advice do you have for a 14 year old girl?


This is so vague I love it. The voices you are hearing are real, god is speaking to you. The nation of France needs you. Don your armor, take up arms, lead the French army. This is your destiny, joan. When the flames come for you let them lick your bones and laugh.

Have you ever been watching a movie—let’s say in the theater where you don’t have the ability to rewind—and you miss what’s actually happening because you’re hung up on the last scene, trying to make sense of it instead of actively paying attention? Have you ever missed the significance of a whole scene by dwelling on one that has passed, when the present one plays a vital part in moving the story forward? Doing this is a mistake because you’re pulling yourself out of the narrative that has been strategically crafted to carry you through the story. Every scene matters, so if you dwell on a single one as it proceeds, you will miss out on the art of the film.

So is life I think. I often ask, “who am I and how am I known,” but I think it’s better to ask myself, “who do you want to be,” “what do you want to become,” and “how do you want to be known in the future,” and start doing things in the present that reflect that. It’s no surprise that I often feel stuck or lost. I’m actively avoiding the present and hindering my future when I keep looking over my shoulder without the power to rewind. So instead of hitting replay in my mind to analyze moments that have already faded out, I’m pressing play and taking hold of today because it whispers into tomorrow and hurls stepping stones into the future. I’m going to be present in my narrative, because this scene has a purpose, and I intend to find out what it is so I can be proud of my character development in the pages to come.

Anytime you’re gonna grow, you’re gonna lose something. You’re losing what you’re hanging onto to keep safe. You’re losing habits that you’re comfortable with, you’re losing familiarity.

go on & have a cry

it’s odd how much crying is frowned upon, even for women. we’re told to be strong, but no one ever said strength has no emotions (it’s just implied)

avoiding the expression of emotion creates a dullness, a mediocrity and stagnancy. crying, on the other hand, is cathartic, accepting, and intimate, giving you a chance to acknowledge that yes, you have feelings, and you can get sad sometimes. angry even. 

so go on, have a cry. it doesn’t make you a neurotic, emotional “girl,” but a real person just being a real person

She had authentic magnetism. The way she listened was more eloquent than speech.
