Trust? by Patrick D. Odum This is real love — not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins (1 John 4:10 NLT). You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city on...
There is only one relationship that matters, and that is your personal relationship to a personal Redeemer and Lord. Let everything else go, but maintain that at all costs, and God will fulfill His purpose through your life. One individual life may be of priceless value to God’s purposes, and yours may be that life.
Note to self: Don’t depend on time itself. Let God thoroughly work through you and heal you, or else it won’t be done right and will take longer.
you don’t change, swap, or update. In an age when computer processors make major leaps every few months and software companies release new upgrades every year, we get programmed into looking for the new and improved version of everything. The simple but profound truth is that Jesus is Lord. No update needed. No rival worthy. No change necessary. In fact, if we stray from this as the basis of...

Thanks God. For being so good yesterday, today & forever.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and today I left San Diego around 12 pm and got to my aunt’s house around 2:30pm to help prepare food for tomorrow. I’ve realized that my aunt is a crazy woman. CRAZY. She makes ALL of the food and the turkey PLUS korean food and dessert. Oh my. As I was helping her cook, I couldn’t help but wonder how she had done all this the past years. And not...
I just came back from a Muslim Student Association EID Celebration and let me tell you, it was really cool to engage in a different, cultural atmosphere. It was intimidating at first, but talking to some Muslim students and listening to the presentation was actually quite informative and interesting. The EID Celebration is an annual three-day celebration of a historical event that took place...

“Beware of “the cares of this world,” because they are the things that produce a wrong temper of soul. It is extraordinary what an enormous power there is in simple things to distract our attention from God. Refuse to be swamped with the cares of this life.”

Art must take reality by surprise.– Francoise Sagan (via kari-shma)
My soul is deficient, Lord. Never good enough, never fully satisfied, never fully happy. Deficient in every possible way. I destruct myself and hold onto suppressors for happiness. But in my deficiency, You bring me rejuvenation and joy, because You make everything perfect in my weakness. I am weak, for He is strong.
“God’s power under us, in us, surging through us, is exactly what turns dependence into unforgettable experiences of completeness.” — Bruce Wilkinson
“We must see to it that we aid and assist God, and not stand against Him by saying, “I can’t do that.” God will not discipline us; we must discipline ourselves. God will not bring our “arguments … and every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5)— we have to do it. Don’t say, “Oh, Lord, I suffer from wandering thoughts.” Don’t suffer from wandering...

God is limitless. There is just SO much to know about Him. There is so much more to Him than I thought. Knowing Him is getting even more and more interesting, and I can’t help but praise Him for what He’s done, doing and about to do. Endless. Limitless. I will never fully understand God, but I can constantly search for Him. His word reveals His character, a character that is so unique...

I took the Myers Briggs test again on this site that Jonny sent me. And I got a different personality result. I was an INFP before, and now it says I’m an ENFJ. Weird. But reading the description, some parts actually seem quite accurate.. ENFJ description If your personality type is ENFJ then you direct your energy primarily towards the outer world of actions and spoken words. You try to...

it’s okay. God knows what you’re going through. give it up to Him, He will surprise you with greater things.
Other people’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.– Les Brown (via kari-shma)
It’s funny to see how us as humans can be so forgetful. Even to the extent of what defines us. Reading my old journal entries from high school makes me realize how much I’ve forgotten who I really am. I’ve been trying so hard to find my place in the world that I’ve forgotten my unique and eccentric qualities, my honest thoughts about certain issues, my values…...

He speaks to me everyday. And yet I don’t listen. I’m not attentive. I’m not paying attention. Jesus, following You is what I live for, and may my heart constantly yearn for more of You. Not just admiring you from afar.But walking WITH You, and putting my faith into action. Enough of just thinking and thinking and not doing. Enough of just knowing and not acknowledging.Open my...
