"Do not rejoice against me, O my enemy, for though I fall, I will rise again! When I sit in darkness, the Lord himself will be my Light." (Micah 7:8)
Holy warriors for God never quit. Every warrior experiences setbacks and challenges, but the fact that God is on their side means that nothing on earth can hold them down. With God’s strength and support, you can become an unstoppable holy warrior who is victorious in every spiritual battle. That’s because when it comes to warriors, failure is never the final ending. God has guaranteed victory for those who live right in His name. Today, will you refuse to lose to the enemy? Will you rise up and reach a whole new level of abundant living? Live victoriously today; that’s what God has called you to do!
A new chapter of my life commences with this way of life, this way of thinking, this way of believing, this way of being.

"Free people free people."
Discovering Yourself vs. Discovering God
In response to Will Bowen’s quote “Hurt people hurt people.”
—By a motivational speaker named Nicole that I hope to meet again someday…
"Discovering yourself takes a lot of time, while discovering Jesus takes a matter of moments and brings clarity to identity so swiftly. What’s getting in the way of your identity as a Child of God?"

"A prayerless ministry is a powerless ministry"
The Purpose Driven Church
"The soul needs its silent spaces. It is in them we learn to pray."
See more here.
"Is not my love to serve God greater than this? Greater than what I’m going through?"
So, I pray that God will grant me the patience to stick to what He’s guiding me to do. I just want peace. I want to be able to relax. I no longer wish to be on guard. I just want to let go and let God. Let go of my fears and insecurities and let God make me whole again. Let go of all my curiosity and let God guide me blindly. Let go of all my suspicions and let God build a trusting foundation in our relationship. And sometimes, I need to let go and leave.
And all that’s happening; it just hurts to do so. But this, too, shall pass.
Why would fate
bring us together
if it knew I wasn’t meant
to fall in love with you?
Doesn’t God know
that I just don’t have
that kind of
Time and Timing
It’s only a matter of time
I don’t know what He has planned
But He called my name this morning
To give me a head’s up
The beginning was just around the bend
Just around the corner
And I wasn’t the only one
Who could hear Him
He’s letting the whole world know
The plans He has for me
And it’s scary because I am
Contrary to common belief
A very private person
But all inner workings
He’s been planning in me
Planning in him
Will soon come to light
Will soon be revealed
It’s just a matter of timing
This why, sometimes, my room is my refuge.
"Oh, you know girls just mature faster than boys."
Hmm did you ever consider
that might be because boys’ indiscretions are excused with a simple “Boys will be boys,”
while we simultaneously force girls to grow up too fast by sexualizing them at increasingly younger ages?
also we give girls baby dolls with nappies and washing machines and ironing boards while boys get superheroes and skateboards
That’s sociology/social-construction for you
