"I was only able to get over my past when I decided I was going to … Although we can’t set ourselves free, getting up and making a decision to move on from our past is a step in the right direction."

"We can all fight the battles of just one day. It is when we add the burdens of two uncontrollable days, yesterday and tomorrow, that we get overwhelmed."

"'The joy of the Lord is our strength.' But it is not our joy in the Lord that gives us strength. The Lord’s joy is our strength. My strength comes not from how much joy I can manage to muster. Otherwise, I am the source of my strength and not God. My strength comes from the fact that our God rejoices in me. His joy in me makes me strong."

"Your life is beautiful, and to live it, you only need to do this: trust Jesus and His love for you. Live simply by living loved. Don’t let your fear of the future, fear of paying bills, fear of not getting what you want, or any kind of fear distract you from God’s faithfulness. Don’t let these worries and impending challenges distort the wholeness and holiness and beauty of Jesus. He is who He is and your situation do not change that. He is still good, holy, merciful, gracious, generous and outrageously in love with you, beloved."

"Love never retreats, in fact quite to the contrary, love doesn’t back off when it is tested, it is the very love that upholds us when it is being tried. Check your heart when you find yourself being offended instead of being brought to your knees! No matter what the offense, love covers a multitude of offense! Ask ourselves daily are we being driven by love of God? If so it is evident for all to see, feel, and touch. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. But where there is Love it will remain!
— 1 Corinthians 13:8

"In friendship…we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years’ difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another…the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting—any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,” can truly say to every group of Christian friends, “Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another.” The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others."

"God loves you. He loves the person you are today. He loves the things that make you the individual you that you are. Sure, He sees the mess, but the Scriptures are very clear that He understands we are dust. Also, Jesus has been tempted in every way, so He gets it. Not only that, but tons of things have happened to you that have been heartbreaking and difficult and God’s heart breaks over those things more than you can imagine. God wanted to rescue you because He wanted to give you something more. Saving you was a good idea because He wants so much better for you than life as it would be without Him in it and despite the mess of who we all are without Him, He sees still sees a heart that He treasures and loves beyond reckoning."

"With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose."
