"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."

"I do not define myself by how many roadblocks have appeared on my path.
I define myself by the courage I’ve found to forge new roads.
I do not define myself by how many disappointments I’ve faced.
I define myself by the forgiveness and faith I’ve found to start again.
I do not define myself by how long a relationship lasted.
I define myself by how much I have loved, and am willing to love again.
I do not define myself by how many times I’ve been knocked down.
I define myself by how many times I’ve struggled to my feet.
I am not my pain.
I am not my past.
I am that which has emerged from the fire."

"My God is not a God who forgets His promises. My God is one who fights wars in defense of his children, and His wars are never without hope. My God is a God who moves mountains, and forms the hearts of all men. My God is one who levels the playing field of all hearts, dealing out the grace that not a single one of us deserves. My God is one who sees every woman as both a mother and a daughter. All contradictions, all flaws, all pain."
