I kick and I scream and I thrash hard against the Father’s love. I shift my focus and become a prisoner to the panic instead of the promise, and still He says, “mine.” He looks at me, broken, and calls me daughter and ever so lovingly pulls me right back in.
I want to live as a prisoner to the “Yes.” Remembering all we have seen, we set our hope fully on what we have not yet seen. We place all of our hope and all of our trust and all of our focus on the grace given us through Christ, and we beg to live captured by His promises."

I love books - they allow me to pretend that I have a love life as I vicariously live through them. Nothing beats a love story in print, especially when you get to see both the characters’ perspectives. GAHHH - so good
in reality, my love life right now consists of the one part of my drive home, where this cute guy smiles at me from his little Mitsubishi while I turn the corner. For real. That has happened 3 days in a row - is he my soul mate??
THIS IS WHY I NEED BOOKS - things like this actually happen and are beautiful in books. In real life, it just turns out that we more than likely have opposite work schedules & our commutes meet up in a seemingly perfect way.
or that we could survive on things we love to do - not career stuff but our quirky talents we love to do most when no one is around, like singing in the shower or being excellent at sliding across hardwood in socks
Everyone should give a second of there time to reblog this. Instead of reblog girls in crops tops. Just shows raw love.
its hard not to reblog this sometimes man
SOMEONE TAKE ME BACK TO UGANDA RIGHT NOW PLEASE
I have to confess that I love a good love story (& also that I love the idea of love). I especially admire stories of courting where friendships blossom and it’s all just so beautiful. I hoped for my personal love story to be alike to that. But recently I have come across stories where there is love on fire. Now I’m not sure which kind of love I would like to receive in my future.
I have always known that there are different types of love and even that people feel love in so very different ways. But some of the books that I have had the joy of stepping into have drawn a picture of comfortable love, where love blossoms from friendship and it is safe and lovely, as well as love that burns with passion and seems almost alive all on its own.
I believed that I would want safe and comfortable love, but when you realize that there’s the safe choice that will appease you and the radical choice that is a risk but fulfills you, how can you choose to settle??
It is of my opinion that any portrayal of romantic love can be flipped back tumour relationship with God. Why should I settle for this lukewarm relationship and love that most people settle for within Christianity, when I could burn bright like a star. Some may argue that those that burn bright do not burn for as long, but I would rather shine for the world to see, both spiritually and romantically, than to fade into the background of comfort and safety.
We were never designed to be comfortable and I know most humans strive to reach true comfort in their lifetime, but I have always wanted to step out and burn bright.
I’m so excited I’m like shaking with anticipation..!
I just applied to potentially my dream job. Meaning that it could be fantastic but I don’t know if I’ll get it so I’m a little hesitant to get too excited over it if it doesn’t work out..
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me pray for this, just like take 2 seconds to say “Sup God? Katie is really excited for this kinesiology job & it could be great & I just pray that you would make your path for her known for this upcoming year & equip her for whatever job you bless her with. (But this job would be super stellar, so please?) K, thanks ! LOVE YOUUU”
thanks guys - you’re the best. I could be a kinesiologist this fall. I could be a part of a health care team
MEEEE - A PART OF A HEATH CARE TEAM !!!!!!
