“If a man is not ready to commit to you then he is not ready to court you. There is nothing more wasteful than dating for fun. This is the epitome of how the world practices things, where commitment means “test driving.” And then after you’ve spilled coffee on the seats, used up the gas and dented the doors you leave the car for somebody else to maintain.”—Letter From A Jealous Brother (via sauyou)
“I don’t rock Yolo, you already know though. You could live once, I’ma live once more though. Christ run it, Christ run it, G.O.M. until I go though. Die once, live on, that’s the motto, homie, Dolo.”—Bizzle, The Motto Remix
There comes a point where one realizes they can’t figure everything out on their own. I came to that realization….a while ago…. I rather… Trust God, in who He says He is. Don’t try to invent Him into something you want Him to be. Never works.
Centuries in & centuries out, folk tried “X” God out the equation. Folk who claimed a relationship with a faithful God, end up having an “ex” situation. The-powers-that-be, in every generation, tried their best to divert the power of God and His Word, but it never worked. He stood the test of time. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). He’s the author of time. The artist of creation’s masterpiece. EVERYthing that our senses experience all point back to God, whether we believe it or not. Can’t have something from nothing, without something (in this case, someONE who defies the law of physics) already being in place.
So I rather place my trust in God & stop trying to figure everything out. I rather be “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:2) than anywhere else. He’s been here and is not going anywhere. Let’s put our faith in Him and use His Word as our guide in life. Stop tryna figure out everything. We have a limit. God don’t.
“As we seek to walk with Christ, sometimes we travel with too much weight. We drag things along that shouldn’t be in our lives. It might be something we do that slows us down, or it might be someone with whom we spend time. Whatever it is, we need to get rid of excess weight.”—Greg Laurie - Let God Change Your Life (via oceancallsme)
