"If only things weren’t the way they are."
But sadly this is reality. It’s bittersweet but I wish for the best. I’m content knowing that God is the focal point and always will be. He will always be more important than anything, no matter how much I try to fight that innate desire for Him out of my bitterness. He’ll wait patiently while I kick, cry, and scream the whole way. And in the end He still tells me, “I love you. Come to me.”
"You are meant to fight. When you are sick, your body fights for its right to function. When you hold your breath, your body fights for its right to breathe. There are billions of tiny events—from the surface of your skin, down to the very cells of your body—that have to happen in order for you to be simply sitting here today. If your most minuscule parts haven’t given up yet,
Why should you?"
"Attract what you expect,
Reflect what you desire,
Become what you respect,
Mirror what you admire."
"Judging others makes us blind, whereas love is illuminating. By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are."
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
