Hold On To Hope
Christ's love for us is unconditional. He loves you no matter what. He doesn't look at you the way you see yourself. He sees the good things about you. He thinks you're to die for. He loves you despite your flaws. He made you. He wants to be in a relationship with you. He wants to be there for you and comfort you when things aren't going well. He wants the best for you. God doesn't need you to just love Him, He wants you to recognize how much love He has for YOU. You don't need to earn His love, He loved you from the beginning. No matter what, God won't turn away from you, even if people do. He will never give up on you. He won't reject you. You may feel like He doesn't care, but He does. Feelings aren't always true. So don't stop just because you feel like it isn't worth it. Don't give up because you feel like nobody cares. Things get better. God cares about you. Persevere through hard times. Giving up is far worse than trying and failing. If you give up, how will you ever succeed at things? Don't let yourself believe that you have to be what society says is 'beautiful'. Don't buy into that. Outward beauty isn't everything. You're beautiful just the way you are. God says so. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. What matters most is what you're like on the inside. Inward beauty is more important. Inward beauty means having good character. If you choose to be more like Jesus instead of trying to be like the girl on the front cover of that magazine, then you will truly be beautiful on the inside, and your beauty will shine from the inside out. http://kimberlydeanna.wordpress.com/
A gospel-centered disciple rejects the pursuit of perfection and embraces the gift of repentance.
It’s so easy to hate. It takes strength to be gentle and kind.
When you know that you did something wrong, acknowledge how you really feel. Then let it go, and forgive yourself - learn from it. Just don’t beat yourself up for it.
Literally how I felt about highschool
I still haven’t seen the first episode of season 8 of Doctor Who. I’m waiting until I have it recorded in HD on Wednesday night! I’m so pumped guys, you have no idea. No spoilers. Please.
I’ve noticed that sometimes, the best thing to do is to just “go for it” when you’re waiting for God to tell you which direction to go in. God often doesn’t tell us exactly what His plan is, but instead, He closes doors that we might have tried to open - and I think that sometimes, we have to figure out what God wants for our lives by just moving forward instead of passively waiting for God to tell us exactly what to do.
God’s restriction is very narrow, but His will is huge.

Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.
if you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?
