Wanna know what LOVE is?
"This is how we know what love is. Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers." - 1John 3:16

Thoughts to lift you up tonight!
If God is all you have, you have all you need.
Don’t give up on God, because He never gave up on You
God’s promises are like stars; the darker the night, the brighter they shine.
Don’t mistake God’s patience for His absence. His timing is perfect and His presence is constant. He’s always with you!
God’s plan is so high & above our understanding that the only way we’ll truly be able to fathom it is by taking this life day by day. #Truth
Life was throwing curve balls at me left and right . But then God gave me a bat and showed me how to swing .
Disappointments are just God’s way of saying: “I’ve got something better”’ Be patient, live life, have faith.
"If we understand the price that He paid for our lives, then we would live lives with greater fear of the Lord, we would live lives with greater worship, we would lives that would say that I am not my own, I am bought with a price and that’s why I would not offer my body as an instrument of sin but as an instrument of righteousness." - Ptr Roy Ricafort
Butters: I love life.
Stan: But you just got dumped.
Butters: Well yeah, and I’m sad, but at the same time I’m really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It’s like, it makes me feel alive, you know? It makes me feel human. And the only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt somethin’ really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good, so I guess what I’m feelin’ is like a, beautiful sadness. I guess that sounds stupid.

Everyone longs to give themselves to someone, to have deep relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively
But to His child, the Lord says:
"No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by Me; with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me, to have an intensely personal relationship with Me alone, discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found.
Only then will you be capable of the most perfect relationship that I have planned for you. “I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing… one that you cannot imagine.
I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you. “you just keep watching Me. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am. Keep listening and learning the things that i tell you. Just waiting-that’s all.
"Don’t be anxious. Don’t worry. Don’t look around at all the things others have gotten or that I have given them. Don’t look at all the things you think you want. Just keep looking to Me.
"And then, when I know you are ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far wonderful than any you would dream of. You see, I’m working at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time. Until you are satisfied exclusively with Me, and the life Ive given you, you wont be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me.
"Dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love, I want you to see in the flesh a picture of you relationship with Me, and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love that I offer you with myself. "Know that I love you utterly. Be satisfied in Me."
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT. GOD LOVES YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE. DON’T CARE WHAT SOCIETY SAYS BECAUSE THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU MADE YOU WONDERFULLY. YOU ARE PERFECT IN HIS EYES. THE ONE WHO DIED FOR YOU AND CONQUERED THE GRAVE AND LIVED AGAIN HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE. YOU ARE DESTINED FOR GREATNESS. YOUR LIFE IS MEANT TO PLEASE NOT PEOPLE AROUND YOU BUT PLEASE AND PRAISE GOD ALONE.
