Everyone has talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.
In every trial there is the promise that the God who takes you through and cares for you now is the God in whom you hope for a future deliverance which will lead you into His very presence. You can’t always rejoice in your circumstances, but you can always rejoice in the Lord and all that He’s done for you.
So thankful for the ladies in my life and so proud of all they’re becoming. Here’s a photo from last night’s listening party to celebrate Morgan’s first album release. Go check out her music. It’s killer.
you are all so beautiful. the hearts and faces that flood my dash bring me so much joy. i love getting familiar with your minds and seeing through your eyes. i love reading your opinions and knowing what life is throwing at you and how brave and honest you all are to face it and grow from it. i love seeing the behind-the-scenes versions of people i’ve never met and knowing what an honor it is to peer deeper into hearts that other people may never know. i just want you all to know that you’re loved, you matter, and you are part of something much greater than yourself. i hope that you face this day with the gratitude and peace that comes in the remembrance of the monumental love that made history and made a way for you and me many fridays ago. He is good, and i’m thankful for how His goodness shines through your life into mine.
He may love you. He probably does. He probably thinks about you all the time. But that isn’t what matters. What matters is what he’s doing about it, and what he’s doing about it is nothing. And if he’s doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn’t do anything. You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life.
So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
Thank you, April showers, for bringing May flowers. But more importantly, for washing away all of March’s bull shit.
