Some nights I lie awake and question everything that I believe. Everything that I know and hold so dear. Everything that I so stake my life on. 

I think the measure of how much you truly believe in something is how crippled you would be if you discovered it were not true after all. 

Love, Musings, Truth

My greatest confidence. 

“For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.” //‭‭ Isaiah‬ ‭57:15‬ ‭

This is He who loves me. 

What peace floods my soul, knowing that there is one like Him who holds the very fabric my life together in power and love. I know who He is – and I know what I mean to Him. It is with this profound truth that I can walk through anything with my head held up high.

Love Over Dysfunction

So many people confuse dysfunction with love. But when you really break it down, it is quite simple. One robs from you, the other gives. One hurts, the other heals.

There is such a stark difference – it is not confusing at all. Love is always good, and love always heals. It is the opposite that hurts. Being cheated on hurts. Deception hurts. Lies hurt. Emotional abuse and mental manipulation hurts. Broken promises hurt. Lust hurts.

But love? No. Never. Love honors. Love protects. Love isn’t selfish. It doesn’t take and take, it always gives. Love never robs you of your self respect and dignity. Love builds you up, not tears you down. Love keeps its word. Love is full of truth, not wrongdoing. Love casts out fear. Love is pure, and love is safe. Love heals.
Dysfunction and abuse tear you down. But love is what builds you back up again. Know the difference, and have enough courage to build your life around what is true and good.

// Love; it will not betray you
Dismay or enslave you, it will set you free
Be more like the man you were made to be.

Love Wins

In the midst of the darkest and most confused hour in human history, may the Lord find a remnant faithful unto Him. As His eyes search to and fro throughout the earth, may He find an entire generation given over to Him, no matter the cost. May He find consecrated ones standing for Jesus, standing for truth, standing for love. Real love – the kind that goes hand in hand with truth, righteousness and saving grace – not the kind that celebrates perversion, compromise, and political correctness.

When the whole world rises up to shake their fists at You, let the wise be found on Your side. When the nations rage against You, let the humble be found hidden under the shelter of Your wings. When the masses gather to hate Your ways and curse Your name, let the faithful be found loving and exalting Your name.

Strengthen Your saints Lord! Keep us standing to the end. When You return, You will find faith on this earth.
