Notorious Twenty Something

Blazing a trail. Finding a niche. Working hard.

Christianity does not set faith against thinking. It sets faith against assuming.

—Tim Keller (via godmoves)

You and me. Time and space. You watch us run.

—River Song

My flesh hates prayer more than Bible study because Bible study can actually be used for my glory. I can know more than others. I can speak better than others. If I study well, I can speak in conferences. But no one will know about my life of prayer. I will gain nothing from men but I will gain much from God.

—Paul Washer (via godmoves)

We weren’t made to be confident in ourselves or our abilities. But instead, we were made to be confident in the One who dwells inside of us. Let the Lord be your confidence - He will strengthen and uphold you. When you boldly call on His name - He will fill you with a hope overflowing the banks.

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.’

So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide

Someone once told me a story about long term relationships. To think of them as a continent to explore. I could spend a lifetime backpacking through Africa, and I would still never know all there is to know about that continent. To stay the course, to stay intentional, to stay curious and connected – that’s the heart of it. But it’s so easy to lose track of the trail, to get tired, to want to give up, or to want a new adventure. It can be so easy to lose sight of the goodness and mystery within the person sitting right in front of you.
