The fact that our heart yearns for something Earth can’t supply must be proof that Heaven must be our home.

He’s the one that holds the keys. He’s the One that holds the keys to overcome the grave. He takes broken peices and makes a masterpeice. He takes things that are insignificant and makes it singificant.

My life is too short not to love the story God has for me.

{three.}

Our lives are a collection of stories. Truths about who we are, what we believe, what we came from, how we struggle, and how we are strong. When we can let go of what people think, and own our story, we gain access to our worthiness – the feeling that we are enough just as we are and that we are worthy of love and belonging.

Sometimes, you look up and there just seems to be many more stars than ever before. They burn brighter and brighter and they shine longer and they never vanish into your periphery when you turn your head. It’s as if they come out for us and remind us that their light took so long to come to us, that if we never had the patience to wait, we never would have seem them here, tonight, like this. That as much as it hurts, sometimes, it’s all you can do. Wait, endure, and keep shining, knowing that eventually, your light will reach where it’s supposed to reach and shine for who it’s supposed to shine for. It’s never easy, but it’s always worth it.

I’ve learned that life isn’t about serving yourself. It’s about serving God. Maybe the way we’re supposed to serve God is different than how we think we’re supposed to serve God. Maybe the way that we’re supposed to serve God is by being unabashadly happy in everything we’re doing. Maybe serving God means taking every detour life takes us in stride.

Her heart was wild, but I didn’t want to catch it; I wanted to run with it – to set mine free.

He is faithful when I am not. He is constant when I am not. He is everything when I am nothing. Yet – He says that I am HIS.

Living a grateful life creates more abundance, acceptance and appreciations.

Child, why did no one ever teach you that you cannot turn people into homes? People are ever changing, ever flowing. They will disappear with everything you put inside them. Still, your home does have a heartbeat. But it isn’t one locked in anyone else’s chest. Just look inside your own.

There is power in looking silly and not caring that you do.

Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet. Anything the rangers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back. Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything you can’t control is teaching you how to let go.

That is why we need to travel. If we don’t offer ourselves to the unknown, our senses dull. Our world becomes small and we lose our sense of wonder. Our eyes don’t lift to the horizon; our ears don’t hear the sounds around us. The edge is both comfortable and limiting. We wake up one day and find that we have lost our dreams in order to protect our days. Don’t let yourself become one of these people. The fear of the unknown and the lure of the comfortable will conspire to keep you from thanking the chances the traveler has to take.But if you take them, you will never regret your choice.

Something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart: a humility , a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges at the point when our knees hit the floor.

That’s when I realized what a true friend was. Someone who would always love you – the imperfect you, the confused you, the wrong you – because that’s what people are supposed to do.

You only have one heart to give and one mind to lose. Fall in love with someone who will take them both.

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, and smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful. I promise.
