“ Grace is not opposed to effort, it is opposed to earning. ”

How do you prefer to spend your free time?

Depends on the day and how I’m feeling.

The things I enjoy doing are: reading, hanging out with or talking to friends, hiking, photography, hanging out at coffee shops, tumblr, and sometimes playing games.

While lost in deep forest, a couple stumble upon a locked door that seems to be the gateway to their freedom. A mysterious stranger tells them there is only one way to open the door and anything else will result in their death!

I have an unhealthy obsession with ‘Frozen’ coming to ‘Once Upon A Time.’

Always great to be able to FaceTime with Jon Gilley! Thankful for his availability to listen and talk about life. 

“ Whenever your heart starts to be anxious about the future, preach to your heart and say, ‘Heart, who do you think you are to be afraid of the future and nullify the promise of God? No, heart, I will not exalt myself with anxiety. I will humble myself in peace and joy as I trust this precious and great promise of God—He cares for me.’ ”

“ The best gift of the gospel is not the forgiveness of sins. The best gift of the gospel is not the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ. The best gift of the gospel is not eternal life. The best gift of the gospel is seeing and savoring the supremacy of Jesus himself - that’s the best gift of the gospel. And we had no access to that joy until He took our place. ”

What’s up, followers!?

I’m not sure why I have gained many new followers lately, but I would like to say “thank you” for your interest in my blog! I haven’t posted anything original in a while and haven’t been interacting like I used to, but I want to change that. 

NOTE: If you follow me and we don’t already interact with each other or haven’t interacted in a while, send me a message. I’d be more than happy to get to know you or catch up! Also, if you’re a new follower, let me know where you found my blog.

If you’d like, you can follow me on:

“ I think the strongest prayer I’ve ever prayed is a single phrase I declared with complete honesty: God, I have no idea what you’re doing, but I trust you. ”

“ Wrath and mercy are not coordinate. Wrath is subordinate and serves mercy… God’s wrath serves the revelation of the riches of his glory to the vessels of mercy (cf. Romans 9:22-23). This is why I’m calling grace the pinnacle of the mountain of his glory, because wrath is part of his glory. It’s not an unglorious aspect of God to be angry at sin; it’s a glorious thing, but it’s not the main thing. It’s part of the mountain, but the top of the mountain is grace. ”
