The remedy for human problems is God’s Amazing Grace!
Every person you see is someone Jesus thought enough of to die for. Remember that in how you treat others.
A bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
If I didn’t know what it hurts like to be broken, then how would I know what it feels like to be whole.
If I didn’t know what it cost like to be rejected, then I wouldn’t know your love coming home.
If I didn’t know what it looks like to be dirty, then I wouldn’t know what it feels like to be clean.
And if all of my shame hadn’t drove me to hide in the shadows, then I wouldn’t know the beauty of being free.
Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok.
Cause the One who holds the world is holding onto me.
