"My heart was saying, “Lord, take away this longing, or give me that for which I long.” The Lord was answering, “I must teach you to long for something better."
Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity (via dpcr88)
they say they love, but when they do they don’t love
he calls me belle, he calls me belle, he calls me belle
i have always believed in everyone else’s beauty, he’s helped me discover mine
in other words
He makes a son out of a slave and a song out of every tear. This is the mysterious and beautiful work of His hands.
"I wish we were just as united in winning souls as we are in grief."
Rick Warren (via littlethingsaboutgod)
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways"
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (via quotes-shape-us)
when they told me
make homes out of people
because who would be foolish enough
to plant the seeds of themselves
in a skin that wasn’t theirs, or in a smile
they didn’t own
but when i turned to show you
there was only quiet
and my roots
from around your ribcage
