Your mental health comes before school baby, always. If its midnight, and you have an exam the next day but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that carton of Ben and Jerry’s and afterwards, go the fuck to bed. So what if you get a 68% on the exam the next day? You took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. To hell with anyone who tells you differently.

If the church must be anything, She must be a safe place for the gender confused and the sexually broken, and if She is not safe for that then we do not believe our own message. We are all broken, all in need of salvation, all in need of grace, and to take a particular struggle and put it outside the bounds reveals that we don’t quite know what it is that we believe—that we will take other people’s sins more serious than we will take our own….. She must be a fortress for the weary struggler, or we do not know who Christ is.

Chris [Pratt] never uses a spit bucket. When you do scenes where a character is eating, you eat and then spit it out into a ‘spit bucket.’ Chris just keeps eating. If you see Andy eating a cheeseburger in a scene, you should know Chris Pratt ate like 8 cheeseburgers. I love that guy.

Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy. So when they grow up, they will know the value of things, not the price.

Unless you’re able to look at marriage through the lens of Scripture instead of through your own fears or romanticism, through your particular experience, or through your culture’s narrow perspectives, you won’t be able to make intelligent decisions about your own marital future.

But when the Bible speaks of love, it measures it primarily not by how much you want to receive but how much you are willing to give of yourself to someone.

Jesus did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
Not the righteous, but people who make mistakes.
Not the righteous, but people who went too far in their last relationship.
Not the righteous, but people who haven’t read their Bible since forever.
He came for screw-ups, basket-cases, burn-outs, knuckle-heads, weirdos, the sick, the lame, the miserable. For You. Me. Us.
The tragedy is that every time life reminds us that we’re sinners, we feel like maybe we don’t measure up to this Jesus thing.
But Jesus did not come to call the righteous. He came for sinners.
He came for people who’ve cheated.
He came for people who’ve been too afraid to step out in the first place.
He came for home-wreckers. For people with blood on their hands. For people with sex on their brain.
He came for addicts, failures, and losers. And even for people who look down on addicts, failures, and losers.
For You. Me. Us.
He came to teach us a new life that isn’t that way. But he came knowing full well the life we’ve already lived.
Tomorrow, you may fall again. If not tomorrow, soon. And when it happens, when you do the unthinkably terrible for the first time, or simply the terribly familiar for the thousandth time, you will be tempted.
Tempted to think that this Jesus thing isn’t for you. Tempted to think your actions prove you didn’t make the cut.
But in that moment, remember. Remember that Jesus loves you. Remember that Jesus wants you. And, then, remember:
Jesus did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

I wanna go on a roadtrip someday. Alone or with someone I love. I wanna get away. Explore places. Sleep in the car. Stop a lot just to admire the view. Visit museums and try out coffee shops. Listen to my favorite albums while driving. Have a polaroid camera. Take pretty pictures of the sunrise. Take pictures of myself. Run through a forest. Chase fog. Chase the sun. Spend hours on a field making flower crowns. Feel the wind in my hair. Buy souvenirs. Meet people. Take time to observe. I wanna make memories. I wanna feel alive.
