God risked Himself on me. I will risk myself on you. And together, we will learn to love, and perhaps then, and only then, understand this gravity that drew Him, unto us.

When your best friend ignores you

Your shoulders hang like glaciers.

They are the iceberg that sunk

the Titanic of our friendship

but you were the only one that

drowned.

Tell me what your worst fears are. I bet they look a lot like mine.
Tell me what you think about when you can’t fall asleep at night.
Tell me that you’re struggling. Tell me that you’re scared. No,
Tell me that you’re terrified of life.
Tell me that it’s difficult to not think of death sometimes.
Tell me how you lost. Tell me how he left. Tell me how she left.
Tell me how you lost everything that you had.
Tell me that it ain’t ever coming back.
Tell me about God. Tell me about love.
Tell me that it’s all of the above.
Say you think of everything in fear.
I bet you’re not the only one does.

guys, let’s just all drink tea and eat cake and hug each other, okay?

I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It’s nice.

Things I Think Sometimes

Jude 3: “I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” 

There was once a time when I couldn’t comprehend why people made a fuss about right doctrine/orthodoxy. I reasoned that if it was all about Jesus anyway, if it was all about loving others and loving God then why get involved with the nitty gritty intricacies of doctrine?

Now I understand why heterodoxy is so harmful. 

If you believe the Bible is God’s self-revelation, and if 2 Timothy 3:16 is true, then Scripture is sufficient to teach us what we need to know about God. Perhaps in manipulating Scripture, false teachers cause more harm than the militant atheists for even though they’re telling other about a god, it’s one created in their own image with the consequence that those under their influence are led to worship a false god rather than the God of the Bible.

Road trip

Stop ruining love by wanting it so bad.

One of those days where your nails match the book you’re reading 

"Sorry sir, I couldn’t finish my essay because I was too busy having an existential crisis."

I’ve a friend who’s slowly destroying herself and I can’t help her and it’s killing me.

Why can’t you save anyone?

Dear You,

alexandersattler:

When God broke Adam’s bone

It was more than a fracture in his chest,

Leaving a void the size of eternity

Right next to the heart of every man,

But that is why i love you my dear

For you set my bones in place

When i go astray, keeping me together

With tendons of love and grace

So daughter of Eve

Know that your heart

Fills a void in me

That no other eternity could
