i read this passage today and i realized that i want to be just like the galatians paul describes here (well before they fell into the ways of the world)! i want to be one to welcome people as if they were Christ Jesus in the flesh. i want to be one that people can come to for anything; someone who would be willing to tear out her own eyes and given it to someone in need if ever called to do so. i want to have a generous heart and to find joy in helping others so much so that i would do anything for them.
oh my goodness, the most stressful moment of my life.
ok so i’ve been taking two summer courses this …summer… and i didn’t realize until 12:22 that i have two final exams, two discussion questions to answer, and two quizzes due at 1 AM. so i’m rushing, rushing, rushing to get them done and completely freaking out about it all.
literature final exam: 24 minutes, 53%
philosophy final exam: 11 minutes, 46%
philosophy discussion questions and quizzes: didn’t even bother
i did the math and i passed both my classes despite my complete lack of motivation.
then i realize that this was all due at 1 AM TOMORROW morning…
for those of you who don’t know, the five love languages are different ways people express or feel love. these include
gifts - giving or receiving gifts for another person
words - giving or receiving compliments or encouragement
touch - expressing or feeling love through the act of touching another person
service - doing things for others or others doing things for you
time - spending quality time with someone else to either show or receive love
each person is said to have at least on of these love languages, and just because you show love by doing one does not mean you feel loved after receiving another.
however, i’d like to propose that there is a sixth love language, in which one shows or feels love by remembering something about someone else or that other person remembering something about them. what are your thoughts?
1. Priest Leads his family and community spiritually. He prays with and for his family daily because he knows that the fervent, effectual prayers of a righteous man avail much. He takes his family to church and is not simply present on Sundays but actively involved. He…
Christian Ladies - No Man will be ready for you period, until they know who they are in Christ! A true man who is seeking God wouldn’t be pursuing a woman at that time. Women you want stability right? A man cannot be stable until who knows who he is, what he is meant to do, and how he is meant…
Number 1 :The best friend who you’re real close to. You see them at least twice a week, maybe more. You talk a lot and catch up on everything.
Number 2 : The best friend you don’t talk to as often, but deep down, you’ll always know that they’re your best friend. They understand you, although they barely see you.
or there’s the best friend who gets a new girlfriend at the beginning of the summer, won’t talk to you because he’s too busy with her, and then ditches you for her, even though you already asked him to go to a party with you, and once you get there you know that she’s going to be awkward and he’s going to ask you to keep her company even though she is the very reason you showed up looking like a lame.
“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”—Pablo Picasso (via colourcollision)
1. It is an expression of our love for God. 2. It builds up our spiritual strength. 3. It allows the Lord to be present. 4. It provides fellowship with other Christians. 5. It is an act of obedience to God. 6. It provides accountability for spiritual leadership. 7. It combines spiritual…
There was a couple who used to go to England to shop in the beautiful stores. They both liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups. This was their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. They said, ‘May we see that? We’ve never seen one…
"people bow under the weight of anger and unforgiveness just as prostrate as they bow under the weight or adoration. the same hurts that make some women despise or disrespect men make other women idolize, crave, and obsess over men. countless women keep searching for a do-over in the deferring hope that something will turn out differently this time" (from beth moore’s book, so long insecurity, pg. 199).
i can think of countless women in my life who crave attention from men and base their worth off how men react to them. they will do anything to be loved. and countless men in my life take advantage of this sad truth. that’s why so many women, especially high schoolers, obsess over ex-boyfriends: the man gave them the love they craved, then took it back.
but, you see, we are so blessed as women in Christ because we have a man who we can turn to at all times. Jesus Christ will always love us and He will never take it back. His love never fails. it is perfect. ”when the perfection comes, the partial will come to an end” (1 corinthians 13:10). our worth is set in Christ and His perfect love for us. so don’t let a man define who you are. God knows you are beautiful beyond words…and He is never wrong.
