If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart.


Some days I wake up with no appetite for God. Every day is a war for what we will love most. Don’t stop fighting. He’s worth it.

hat do you need from God today? A lot of times, it’s easy to think that we’re not supposed to ask for too much, but scripture encourages us to go to God with all of our needs. He longs to give you the desires of your heart and pour out His favor and blessing on you. In fact, Jesus said, “You have not because you ask not.”

Anytime you step out and ask for God’s favor, blessing or increase, you are exercising your faith. When you do pray, make sure there isn’t anything in your heart that would block that faith. Begin your prayers by surrendering every thought and attitude to the Lord. Ask Him to purify your motives and show you if there is any unforgiveness in your life. When you surrender everything to the Lord, it opens the door for Him to move on your behalf. Today, surrender all to Him and ask for whatever you need. Let Him pour out His favor and blessing on every area of your life.

That’s how you know you love someone, I guess. When you can’t experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too.

Don’t equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not.

Sometimes I’m terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger for whatever it is it wants. The way it stops and starts.
Edgar Allan Poe  (via thatkindofwoman)

You’ve been told to guard your heart so closely that you don’t even know how to tear down the walls surrounding it. Guarding your heart does not mean mummifying it in an enclosed tomb. Your heart needs just as much exercise as your body. Love constantly. Leave notes of encouragement for your siblings. Mail letters to friends. Go on walks with your mother. Help your dad fix stuff around the house. Love consistently. Learn how to handle conflict. Learn how to say no (without a smile). Learn how to love every little inch of your soul. Learn how to feel heartbreak with another person. Love, love, love. Do not guard your heart so much it is never used.

The odd thing about people who had many books was how they always wanted more.

Christ says, ‘Give me All. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want you. I have not come to torture your natural self, but to kill it. No half-measures are any good. I don’t want to cut off a branch here and a branch there, I want to have the whole tree down. I don’t want to drill the tooth, or crown it, or stop it, but to have it out. Hand over the whole natural self, all the desires which you think innocent as well as the ones you think wicked—the whole outfit. I will give you a new self instead. In fact, I will give you Myself: My own shall become yours.’
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (via p3rspective)
