“ 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.

“ 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. ”

“ Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions. ”

davykesey:

We really didn’t have enough money, enough people, or enough time for our road trip. I almost called it off when I originally started planning it. But there will never be a good time to travel the country for four weeks, just like there will never be a good time to quit your job, read that book, or join a gym. You will probably never have enough money, time, connections, willpower, whatever—to feel ready to make a dream happen. And this is the lesson I learned: eventually you have to stop giving yourself excuses and make the jump.

“ We can rest in the promise that God is working everything, even the stuff that really sucks, for our good and His glory that we may be conformed to the image of Jesus. ”
