"Life-giving faith grows beautiful and pure in the same place that gold grows beautiful and pure: in the furnace."

“It’s risky,” said experience.
“It’s pointless,” said reason.
“Give it a try,” whispered the heart.
"I enjoy talking to you. Your mind appeals to me."

"In your entire life, you can probably count your true friends on one hand. Maybe even on one finger. Those are the friends you need to cherish, and I wouldn’t trade one of them for a hundred of the other kind. I’d rather be completely alone than with a bunch of people who aren’t real. People who are just passing time."
Sarah Ockler, Fixing Delilah (via simply-quotes)
"Build me a home inside your scars,"
I Am Still Running // Jon Foreman (via kvtes)
"Satan sees evil everywhere, even in God himself. Ironically, it became a self fulfilling prophecy. Since the Fall, evil feels omnipresent, making cynicism an easy sell. Because cynicism sees what is “really going on,” it feels real, authentic. That gives cynicism an elite status since authenticity is one of the last remaining public virtues in our culture."
- Paul E. Miller, “A Praying Life”
"It’s the really simple little things that mean something, that grow your love for someone. Small moments where you get a glimpse of who a person is. One look into their soul- that’s all it takes. You can’t help but love them when they let you in. But the thing to remember is that loving is a whole lot better when you learn who someone is and love them exactly for it, rather than creating an idea of who you think they are or an expectation of who they should be. Instead, let your love say: ‘I see you. As you are. And I love you.’ That is the love people need, the love they desire: to be fully known, and still fully loved."
