When you are feeling a distance from God, ask Him to tear down the walls that you built to keep Him out. You may not have built them intentionally, but you did build them; and now you are feeling it within your soul. Christ never leaves us, He is always around, we just tend to ignore Him sometimes, even though His praise is always on our lips.
T.B. LaBerge // Jesus, His Grace and the Gospel (via tblaberge)
He wants them to learn to walk and must therefore take away His hand; and if only the will to walk is really there He is pleased even with their stumbles.
C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters (via nwclerk)
The words you say carry more weight than you know, and to some, they may weigh more than they can handle. Be kind, speak with purpose and clarity, always with the intent to help those around you grow. If you do say words that are hurtful, be quick to use words that heal, and in doing this you will find that you are being more and more like Christ; speaking truth in love.
T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)
- Not ALL men.
- Yes, all men. Every single one of them.
