"Im learning that freedom is a journey
Not a one time destination
Because I stumble, am I no longer free?
Have I lost all Ive aimed to be?
Am I back at my beginning?
No
Because everyday I wake up with a choice
To deny the lies of yesterday
And reject those that lie before me today
The more I know
the greater the opposition
A battle in my mind
And I give the ammunition
The knowledge of who I am fuels the Fathers voice
Repeat after me:
You are loved
You are enough
You are strong
You are powerful
You are made for glory.
The power of those words will unlock the chain of every lie
Those truths will set me free
John 8:31 
The word is the standard for all things
So If its not in there,
I don’t need it
I don’t want it
It has to go.
Everyday is a new chance to walk out freedom
It may not look perfect
I may stumble and backtrack
But as long as I keep walking
Slowly but surely
Freedom will continue to be my journey"

"Where in the Word does it say I’m a failure, incapable, or not enough? Because if its not in there, I don’t have room for it in my heart. Know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 16:33."

Basically the most important thing we can learn in life

one of my all time faves 

Not Kurt Vonnegut. This doesn’t even sound like him.
Good quote though.

"Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” John 7:37&38.

I love that God gives full access to the Holy Spirit to anyone who wants it. He has never held back from us, we just haven’t asked for more, so I stand in awe and say I want it all.
Ps: I’m feeling pretty blessed that I get to call this beautiful place home.

"And He smiles.
He laughs at me and says,
‘I have been right beside you this whole time.
I was the warmth on your pillow,
and I was the breeze on a Sunday morning.
I was the silence in the middle of the day,
the dust floating in streams of sunlight,
the peace of mind that defied all logic.
I was in your best friends advice,
and in the forgiveness of everyone who has ever been hurt.
I was with you this entire time,
but more than that,
I AM.’"

I asked God, “Where have you been?”   (via alright-soul)

Matthew 5: 14-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Isaiah 61: 1-7 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
    for the Lord has anointed me
    to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
    and to proclaim that captives will be released
    and prisoners will be freed.[a]
He has sent me to tell those who mourn
    that the time of the Lord’s favor has come,[b]
    and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.
To all who mourn in Israel,[c]
    he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
    festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
    that the Lord has planted for his own glory.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins,

  repairing cities destroyed long ago.

They will revive them,
    though they have been deserted for many generations.
Foreigners will be your servants.
    They will feed your flocks
and plow your fields
    and tend your vineyards.
You will be called priests of the Lord,
    ministers of our God.
You will feed on the treasures of the nations
    and boast in their riches.
Instead of shame and dishonor,
    you will enjoy a double share of honor.
You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land,
    and everlasting joy will be yours.

As I read these verses, my heart is so heavy for the people of Haiti. Their hope and their joy has been stolen by the enemy. But God will restore all things and they will be renewed in the presence of His light. My anticipation is growing.
