“If you run to scripture and stop there, you’ve missed the entire point of scripture. The point of scripture is to send you on to Christ in a correct fashion, that you may feed from Him.”—Paul Washer (via unembellishedthought)
“You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts. You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth. But that’s all.”—Dear Sugar, The Rumpus (via rainydaysandblankets)
“Joyfully wait! And when all the hoard of Hell comes to you and says ‘You fool, why do you wait at His door?’ ‘He promised.’ ‘You fool, you’re a beggar, why should He open the door?’ ‘Because He died. I will wait. I will seek Him. I will go to His word. I will be with Him in prayer. I will wait upon the Lord. Because He will not grant me less than what I ask for. He will only grant me greater than what I can even conceive in my mind.’”—Paul Washer (via unembellishedthought)
Every time I am staying at my mom’s house and forget something, she just pulls out a little basket of things (razors, toothbrushes, etc.) and I am struck by what a grown-up thing to do that is. So now, a great suggestion from one Ms. K. Eva?
