A good, healthy, successful relationship is one where each person is constantly doing their part to better themselves. Does he… does she… do you…?
Even when it doesn’t feel like it, the truth is, we serve an immediate God; he will not delay.
We do a lot of things God doesn’t like seeing or hearing, yet he never shuts us out because of it. He always forgives, listens, and loves.
When you ask God for big things, don’t be surprised when it takes big courage to do them.
It makes sense – the desire to protect yourself – but how do you do that and invest in community as we are called? How do you learn to trust people and protect yourself at the same time?
Comparison can kill – our hope, motivation, enthusiasm, and desire to move forward and pursue our dreams.
In the midst of good times and easy decisions, we may not stop to think about the bigger realities up ahead. So when you ask, “does it really matter?” I urge you to consider these things.
Relationships are tough, and loving someone isn’t always easy.
There would be no need for faith if God was always loud, outwardly active, and easily seen and understood. But sometimes – in fact, more often than not – He is working behind the scenes.
In order to continue loving selflessly, we have to make sure we have love to give.
