Si tu me olvidas
QUIERO que sepas una cosa. Tú sabes cómo es esto: si miro la luna de cristal, la rama roja del lento otoño en mi ventana, si toco junto al fuego la impalpable ceniza o el arrugado cuerpo de la leña, todo me lleva a ti, como si todo lo que existe, aromas, luz, metales, fueran pequeños barcos que navegan hacia las islas tuyas que me aguardan. Ahora bien, si poco a poco dejas de quererme dejaré de...
Rooted and Established in Love.
14For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15from whom his whole familya in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to...

the heart matters.
mthe1: while i usually place a pretty high premium on the actions of people rather than their words or thoughts, today God tells me differently. If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains,...

Love is Patient
Ask the Apostle Paul to explain love (agápē) and the first thing out of his mouth: “Love is patient” (1 Corinthians 13:4). Forget the rest of his list for a moment; my work is already cut out for me. I’m prone to impatience. I can’t honestly blame this merely on my temperament or my family of origin. Patience is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22). Impatience is a fruit of...
Prayer does not equip us for greater works—prayer is the greater work.– Oswald Chambers (via justinhmin)
“…Now she’s forgiven, she’s loved by the father. She belongs to God — not to her past. That’s not the label over her life anymore - she is not defined by her past failures and she’s not even defined by her future successes. There is nothing to make up for and there’s nothing to prove. She is loved by God, brought into the family — his daughter,...
legit in tears because God is so good. No amount of words of compassion or comfort can satisfy me like God’s. “It is the forgiveness that awakens this love. Forgiveness fuels this affection for God. When you’ve been forgiven of your sins and you realize the greatness of the grace and mercy of God, something happens to your heart that leaves you changed. “ My debt is...
Fear of Overwhelming Challenges
God has hung his diplomas in the universe. Rainbows, sunsets, horizons, and star-sequined skies. He has recorded his accomplishments in Scripture. We’re not talking six thousand hours of flight time. His résumé includes Red Sea openings. Lions’ mouths closings. Goliath topplings. Lazarus raisings. Storm stillings and strollings. His lesson is clear. He’s the commander of every storm. Are you...
