Jesus is going to be the hardest choice you ever make. The moment you choose Him, the whole world turns against you. You’ll find yourself swimming upstream, fighting for your life, your soul, your salvation. There will be days of doubt, days of sorrow, and days of complete and utter failure. There will be days where you cannot even bear to be in your own flesh because you can taste your unworthiness on your tongue with every misdirected flash of rage and contempt.

Yet, Jesus is going to be the best choice you ever make. The moment you choose Jesus, He welcomes you into His strong & mighty arms. He calls you His beloved, His daughter, His son, His sister, His brother. The world turns against you, but the Creator of the universe is on Your side, cheering you along and picking you up when you fall. He fights the dark forces and teaches you more about yourself than any person, religion, or theory ever could. There will be days of pure, unadulterated joy! There will be days where you want to go out and praise God in front of your city! There will be days where you can barely stay within your earthly body, for your gratitude, praise, love, and excitement is so tremendous.

Jesus is going to be the hardest and best choice you ever make. What a wonderful dichotomy!

There is a joy available that the deepest grief cannot put out. No circumstance or person can take away the joy God gives.

I am so thankful that I have a joy that the world can not rob me of; I have a treasure that the world can not take from me; I have something that is not in the power of man or devil to deprive me of, and that is the joy of the Lord.
D. L. Moody (via pureblyss)

First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love.
Maya Angelou


We must love them both, those whose opinions we share and those whose opinions we reject, for both have labored in the search for truth, and both have helped us in finding it.

You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway.
