Thank You, Lord.
"…will you still love me tomorrow?"
i choose love over hate.
got to spend some one-on-one time with my best friend for a little bit this afternoon. it’s only been a few weeks since we’ve spent time together, but i feel like it’s been forever. romantic relationships have a tendency to cause concurrent friendships to fade or even break…but i am very grateful to have a true friend that i can still come back to whenever i need to, without any awkwardness occurring and without feeling like anything has changed between us.
this past week was really rough for me…i needed that time today. i really did.
thank you for always praying for me and being there for me.
i thank God for you.
my boyfriend and i are very different from each other. we differ in our upbringings, our ethnicities, our personalities, our interests, our activities, our majors, and even our ways of expressing our feelings.
but despite all our differences, we share the same God. and it’s so comforting to know that at the end of the day, we are both His. if all else were to fail (including us), God would still remain standing. and we would still remain His…and i thank Him for that.
i once came across a quote that said, “what screws us up the most in life is the picture in our head of what it’s supposed to be.”
i used to believe in that quote. but lately, i’ve experienced something that got me thinking…if we didn’t have the picture in our heads of what things are supposed to be, then how would we know what to strive for? where’s the standard then?
without that picture, we wouldn’t know how to go about the things we do or how to react to the things we encounter. we wouldn’t be able to tell if what we’re doing is wise or foolish. without that picture, we’d be fumbling around in the dark.
…or maybe that’s just me.
Lord, be with us.
it’s too dark, and i can’t see.
i’ve carelessly tossed aside the picture of what it’s supposed to be.
desires and obligations have taken hold of me.
God, please intervene.
God, please set us free.
