Many times, I ask God questions and don’t receive answers. I seek after God and do not find anything. I knock on God’s door and no one opens. But then I realize that the very ability to ask, the will to seek, and the desire to knock are given to me by God. Thus, I am answered in the questioning, God is found in the seeking, and the door is opened in the knocking.B.B. // Finding Our Way Home (via blakebaggott)
I believe that words uttered in passion contain a greater living truth than do those words which express thoughts rationally conceived. It is blood that moves the body. Words are not meant to stir the air only: they are capable of moving greater things.Sōseki Natsume, Kokoro (via wordsnquotes)
"and my head told my heart "let love grow"-, but my heart told my head "this time no, this time no"."
Refusing to gossip is a beautiful decision to make. It not only creates richer friendships but, more importantly, it makes our relationship with the Lord more authentic and believable. We honor God when we honor each other.Lysa TerKeurst (via simply-divine-creation)
