I am often disappointed by how long things take in life. I want the movie montage version, not the real-life version of these events.
It’s so easy to think of God as some aloof guy who sees and treats us all the same, but he knows and cares for each of us individually.
I wonder how our lives would change if we dared to lean in just a little closer and let the hand of the master restorer work.
How we treat others reveals the state of our hearts.
If these nine characteristics are the fruit of the Spirit, the result of his presence and a natural outpouring of his character, that means you can’t pick and choose which ones you want.
I know my God is faithful in spite of the messiness of life and I can trust him. No matter what life looks like, he is forever faithful.
God is faithful & his faithfulness isn’t based on our performance, it is constant.
I’m looking for success, God’s looking for faithfulness.
