I’ll touch all the places where you never kissed and I’ll bloom gardens there to show you how beautiful I can be with out you.

give me some reasons for why you would beat someone up, maybe even to death?

If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation.

psalm 91 MSG

i swoon over every verse in this chapter

let me bleed
wash the lands beneath
where we’ll travel in the love
more vast than the sea

you’ve felt pain
looked death in the face
you know what you’ll become
without accepting loving grace

so lets inspire each other
with our hands
as we write away all
our pain

move with the motions
sway in the breeze
lets love each other for a
little while, no matter the risks
we’re taking.

sweet love of mine
i can’t say no to those eyes
lets cleanse this dry desert
with wet kisses as lullabies

lets take it slow
can we learn how to
sway to the beat of our
pounding hearts before
spinning into a waltz

lets take it slow
inhale the abandonment
i won’t swoon over the sweet
mixture of smoke and cologne
so strong in the skin of your
collar bones.

lets take it slow
lead the way but
don’t hold my hand
escort me out of this
stunning land
keeping our eyes
straight ahead
we’re too young for
love’s demands


I’ve learned new colors since
meeting you.
hide them in
the back of my mind until
we’re ready to unleash
the pigments we’ve created.
lets blow out the flame
hide the ashes
forget the fantasies for just a moment
give us some time
breathe in the delay
and see if our love remains.
—lets take it slow - c.h.

Lord, let them see You in me.

glisten so intensely, shine so bright, that anyone who crosses my path doesn’t even notice me or who i am. 

Lord, make me invisible. 

become embedded in me, so tightly coiled within me, that when anyone is looking for answers, they don’t see my opinions or abilities, but Your love radiating fiercer than a million galaxies.

sweet love of mine
i can’t say no to those eyes
lets cleanse this dry desert
with wet kisses as lullabies

idk i’m not really into putting myself down when i’m talking about how much God loves me bc since He loves me, doesn’t that mean i’m so much more valuable? maybe i don’t deserve it, but to Him, i’m worth it. 

can we stop making it a thing to put ourselves down now

In the aftermath
of my rubble
I’ll see your face flicker
a star in the night
a lighthouse to guide
a beacon to show
where to go
after all is said and done
and I have nowhere else to
run.

What do you think makes our faith different from other religions?

love > rules because love overrules anything we do

Please tell me how to determine whether God is talking to me or not. Sometimes I think God is trying to speak to me but something tells me it's not Him, but it's me talking to myself. It's confusing and frustrating because I love talking to Him and even though I know He'd love to talk to me, how do I know when He is?

hi anon, i’ll try my best to explain all i know about this subject but we’ll see here we go.

The most useful advice is the obvious one: He can speak through the Bible.

first off, the Bible is the Word of God. so if we are wanting Him to speak to us, it’s very easy to find his words in the Bible! i usually Google verses relevant to how i feel if i am struggling. for example, if i am feeling anxious, i Google verses about anxiety. things like that. there should also be a concordance in the back of your Bible where you can search for similar subjects to what you are looking for. Comfort, healing, joy, that sort of thing. If not, again, Google is your best friend. 

God can use anything to speak to you, though. He is not limited to the Bible. My mom was in, we’ll say, a bad state once, and God gave her plenty of songs through each very long season of her trials. I used to wish this would happen to me, I never actually prayed it but it was a passing thought, and lo and behold, a month later, during September, I was given Steady My Heart by Kari Jobe during the most anxious month of my life. Other songs as well, but that was a main one. 

God sometimes speaks to other people, and if they are obedient, they can tell you what was said. God can use sermons in church. God can use devotions - i LOVE those times where i am going through something, and then i open to my next devotion page, and it’s exactly what i needed to read. that is like a spiritual high or something idk it is just amazing. it’s as though God wrote it just for you and it’s a beautiful time. 

God can use anything, so I can’t tell you whether it’s Him or not, sometimes you just know. kind of like when you make a big decision and you know it’s God’s will, because no matter how crazy, you feel that unexplainable peace?

Also remember that the devil’s power over you is your ears. He lies. He likes to talk and talk and talk a bunch of crap that no one really cares about blah blah blah but you can easily shut him out by covering your ears. Allow God to speak to you because it won’t be from your head, but something much deeper. I don’t want to be cliche and say listen to your heart (bc dear god please dont) but I feel like you’ll just know when it’s God. I know I’ve never “HEARD” God; that is a whole other topic that I am not knowledgeable on. But He has given many sources to know Him, and thus, we will hear Him there too.

okay through this mumbo jumbo my best advice would be to pray for Him to reveal Himself, His will, what it is He is trying to tell you… He will make it clear enough. :)

thanks for messaging!

if i prayed that he would love God
instead of asking if he could love me
i wonder
how much more fruitful would my prayers be?

What's your favorite thing about God?

His love when i feel unwanted. His grace when i fail time and time again. His unending faithfulness midst our imperfection. His peace in my anxious times. His purpose for me when i feel pointless. His presence that fills me when i feel empty. His listening ears when I feel lonely.His wonderful, amazing existence that will never be able to be thoroughly explained.

Most truly, though, I love the fact that no matter what grand words we use, we can never describe Him enough because He is always so so so much more than what we can concieve to think.

more attempted selfies with my bun

I don’t think God meant for love to be painful
but humans like to take beautiful things
and use them to make us ache.

I never liked tossing and turning until
4 in the morning,
for a boy who didn’t remember my name.
I resented myself with each thought
of how beautiful I could promise to be
if he told me he loved me.
I never liked my racing heart and sweaty hands
after one look at him.

I didn’t enjoy not being able to eat. I resented how
my stomach turned. Or how
after one simple exchange, I’d float on a cloud
and relive every glance, it was my fuel. I wanted to rehear
every word over and over.

And the worst of all, the part that made it sting,
was never knowing if he reacted the same.
