Whoa whoa whoa. (at Caberfae Peaks Resort)
"The wait itself is a gift of grace. You see, waiting is not only about what you will receive at the end of the wait. Waiting is about what you will become as you wait…Waiting means surrendering your glory. Waiting means submitting to his glory. Waiting means understanding that you were given life and breath for the glory of another. Waiting gives you opportunity to forsake the delusion of your own glory and rest in the God of awesome glory. Only when you do that will you find what you seek, and what you were meant to have: lasting identity, meaning, purpose, and peace in Christ. In this way waiting is is much more than a burden for you to bear; it is a precious gift for you to receive with joy."
For those of you still on the edge of your seat from my polar bear conundrum. I thought to myself: how do polar bears and other animals get stuff off if themselves. To make a long story short I didn’t get a car wash I rubbed my car against a snow drift.
Is there an app that will alert me at the most opportune times to get a car wash in this Michigan winter? My Prius looks like a muddy polar bear. #necessitythemotherofinnovation
"If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart."
"People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it. It’s ridiculous."
"We all know that it is easy to complain, to point out another persons wrong doing or to observe and spotlight inconsistencies and failures. But what takes real commitment, and represents the true character and heart of God within us; is perseverance, despite shortcomings.. It’s standing along side a friend amidst their failings and mistakes, amidst the disappearance of others, and amidst questionable circumstances — and supporting them, in love. No, not agreeing with the mistakes, but agreeing to be around, through the changes and their attempt of out-working their inward commitment. It’s standing beside those whom you call ‘friend’ and promising to be there no matter the trials, errors, scrapes or bruises. It’s standing firm on your word - and being able to say “I am for you, and I am with you on this - lets find these solutions together, lets pray for healing together, and lets see breakthrough together.” Friendship is not a circumstantial view, but a committed vision."
