If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come. There are, of course, moments when the pressure of the excitement is so great that only superhuman self-control could resist it. They come both in war and peace. We must do the best we can… Never, in peace or war, commit your virtue or your happiness to the future. Happy work is best done by the man who takes his long-term work somewhat lightly and works from moment to moment ‘as to the Lord’. It is only our daily bread that we are encouraged to ask for.
C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory (via tblaberge)
You thought you had it figured out, and maybe you did, maybe you were happy and feeling alive. Now it’s all gone, and you are left wondering “Why did I go through that?” and it begins to hurt, like a weight on your chest. Just know, that’s how life is sometimes; you have sweet and wonderful moments, moments full of endless possibilities and joy. But then you have moments that are deeply wounding, and you have to teach yourself to keep going. That sometimes you fall, but you will always have the choice to get back up, and love what you have; even if it’s only a heartbeat.

My Strength (My God)

Lately I’ve been feeling so mentally, physically and emotionally weak. A new season has started with new responsibilities at home, school, hospital, and leadership. It’s all very amazing don’t get me wrong but it all came like an unexpected wave at the beach where all your stuff gets wet. I don’t know where I’m going with the beach thing but anyways, I have a strong feeling this a season of work work work! Also a lot of revelations and self discovery/improvement. This is good!! So I must remember Matthew 6:34, to not worry about tomorrow. God always comes through, He will never leave us. He called us and He will equip us, always. He is a faithful God!!

I have faith as I pour myself to others by loving on them and having compassion towards them, most importantly by sharing the Good News, that God will make me new. I have faith that He will refresh me from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, He will restore my soul and make me stronger than before. I rely on Him to keep going because Jesus is truly my Strength, especially when I am weak. I wouldn’t be able to go out in the the world without Him. I need him for everything, through everything and in everything (: the only waves I want to be experiencing are of God’s love, mercy and grace washing over me (:
