"It’s not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What’s hard, she said, is figuring out what you’re willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about."
Shauna Niequist (via thresca)
Remember, God didn’t breathe His life into us to drag through the day. He didn’t create us in His image, crown us with His favor, equip us with His power to just go through the motions of life. You may have had some setbacks, the wind may have been taken out of your sail, but this is a new day! God wants to breathe new life back into you. If you’ll get your fire and passion back, the wind will start blowing once again. When you’re in agreement with God, He can cause the winds of favor to shift in your direction!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for another day, another opportunity to praise You and pursue the dreams You’ve given me. Help me to stay filled with Your joy, which is strength, so I can serve You with my whole heart in everything that I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.
"So whatever walls you are up against, make it a holy exercise by inviting the Lord into your heart. Surrender your life to Jesus. Start reading God’s Word daily and seeking His will for your life. He will place His Spirit inside of you. You will never be alone. He will fight your battles for you and cause the walls to come tumbling down."
Walls Fall Down (via thaithai)
"[T]hat old September feeling… of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air…. Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes and failures had been wiped clean by summer."
Wallace Stegner (via lajoiedespetiteschoses)
