The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.

You are not accidental. The world needs you. Without you, something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it.

The devil is a better theologian than any of us and is a devil still.

How did a man born of Eastern descent, a man who called himself the Prince of Peace, a man whom the sacred writings describe as eating with prostitutes and providing wine at weddings and healing the sick and ignoring any political plot, a man who wants us to turn the other cheek and give all our possessions if we are sued, become associated with—no, become the poster boy for—a Western moral and financial agenda communicated through the rhetoric of war and ignorant of the damage it is causing to a world living in poverty?
My only answer is that Satan is crafty indeed.

Do not educate your child to be rich. Educate him to be happy so when he grows up, he’ll know the value of things, not the price.

The Christian life is simply a process of having your natural self changed into a Christ self, and that this process goes on very far inside. One’s most private wishes, one’s point of view, are the things that have to be changed.

Note To Self:
God put me here for a reason. I am His light and I am brightening the darkest of places. I am His salt, preserving myself for His glory. I am His child, I am loved more than I could know. He is my creator, my friend, my father, my all. He is for me and He will never leave me. He is my everything and I will not let anything change that. I am trusting Him, because He knows best.

The word used in scripture for “devil” means “one who accuses, criticizes, or slanders.” How often could the word “devil” describe YOU?
