Being a Christian doesn’t mean I’m never going to fall. It means that when I do, I land in loving arms.
Being a Christian doesn’t mean I will never feel pain. It means that I will never be alone in the midst of struggle.
Being a Christian doesn’t mean I am perfect. It means that I have a perfect God living in an imperfect self.
Being a Christian is not about our ticket to heaven. It’s about showing the lost and broken the ticket to love.
to my friends going through a tough season:
the enemy always fights the hardest when he knows God has something great in store for you.
"When my absence doesn’t alter your life, then my presence has no meaning in it."
You can’t help loneliness. Because there will be times when know that you have friends and family who care but you just can’t bring yourself to reach out to a single one of them. Because you’re lonely.
And you’ll tell them later about it. And they’ll go,”Why didn’t you call? You could have called.”
But you just don’t know how to explain that sort of loneliness that had you completely convinced that you were utterly alone. -Yagazie
I really appreciate that.
It’s no problem at all. I completely understand the importance of relearning to love oneself. bell hooks talks about the teacher as healer, but that we can’t do that work without first healing ourselves or being healed. Keep doing the important work I know you are doing for yourself and your students! ❤️ praying for your healing.
