If we want to bear fruit the way that God wants us to in this life, we MUST make it as much about Him and as less about ourselves as possible. This means leaving our personal passions and desires at the door, and stepping into the calling that God has for each one of us. Are you ready to take that leap? Are you ready to lessen yourself for something so much greater than you could ever do without God being in charge? All for HIS glory. All for HIS honour. HE deserves it all. Let’s go!
It’s okay to choose joy. It’s okay to feel joy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s okay to have something good going on in your life, feel joy, and hold onto it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s okay to feel joy AND lament/rage at the same time. We are complex human beings who can hold seemingly contradictory realities. Don’t mind those who think it’s frivolous or naive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s okay to feel hesitant about joy or even fear it. Because there were times when it felt like joy was snatched away more quickly than the time we took to cultivate it. Because, as Brene Brown said, joy is one of the most vulnerable states we can be in. It’s a process.
So I lost one of my favorite stones recently. Like everything in this life it must end and something new must come from it. Good bye #amethyst and welcome home #elephant#jade
On a side note I wrote this quote when I was a kid and till this day I reflect on it. “Love, study, educate yourself, care for one another, define who you are, and then forget everything and seek the truth.” -Benny #blackandwhite#gray#blacknwhite#crystals#rocks#quotes#quotestoliveby
