Hi, I'm Courtney. I hope to find the beauty in others as often as possible. I hope to overcome my fears and insecurities so I can live life to the fullest and glorify God with my whole heart. All of my hope is in my Savior, who has saved me and showered me in grace so much more than I deserve.. and for that, I'm thankful. You should be to. I love meeting new people and making new friends, so talk to me!
Let’s dance, and leave the worries to rest. Let us examine what our hearts have always wanted, and discuss what tomorrow may bring. Maybe we could just walk for a little bit, and find ourselves under the stars, loving only that moment, and not thinking about the past hurts. I should hope to begin again with you, and find that my weariness in the struggle of searching for love has vanished; because here you are, looking and choosing, and holding fast to the words we speak. Speak steady and true, for my soul is seeking to write them down and engrave them in the most precious places.
To think you can love God without being changed by Him, is to think you can jump into the ocean and not get wet. To really love Him, you must understand that your life is going to be wrecked by Him, and built again into something beautiful, something lasting.
Just remember in about 40 seconds someone is about to commit suicide as we sit here blogging. This post goes out to the teens who took and will take their lives. Please just reblog this post to recognize them and don’t question whether or not you should. I promise it won’t ruin your blog type.
We have a strange illusion that mere time cancels sin. I have heard others, and I have heard myself, recounting cruelties and falsehoods committed in boyhood as if they were no concern of the present speaker’s, and even with laughter. But mere time does nothing either to the fact or to the guilt of a sin. The guilt is washed out not by time but by repentance and the blood of Christ: if we have repented these early sins we should remember the price of our forgiveness and be humble.
