"I don’t know where to go from here. As long as I know that You are near. I’m done fighting, I’m finally letting go. I will trust in You. You’ve never failed before. If there’s a road I should walk, help me find it. If I need to be still, give me peace for the moment. Whatever Your will, can you help me find it?"

"Until Jesus Christ is the obsession of your heart, you’ll always be looking to mere men to meet needs that only He can fill. Only when you make Jesus Christ your first love, will you be ready for a love story that reflects His glory."

"Friendship is acting out God’s love for people in tangible ways. We were made to represent the love of God in each other’s lives, so that each person we walk through life with has a more profound sense of God’s love for them. Friendship is an opportunity to act on God’s behalf in the lives of the people that we’re close to, reminding each other who God is. When we do the hard, intimate work of friedship, we bring a little more of the divine into daily life. We get to remind one another about the bigger, more beautiful picture that we can’t always see from where we are."

"There's something I want to do in the future, but it's something that's requires a lot of risks, patience, time and sacrifices. Especially for someone like me who doesn't have as many connections with that place. I always pray that i'll have strength and courage, but somehow i never seem to feel like i do! How do you completely trust in God's plan for you? I know this career is what i want pursue, but how do i pray and let God guide me the right way?"
I think a more important question to ask is where does God fit into all of this. It’s actually a great question to ask in any situation, in any decision. Jeremiah 29:11 says “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you & not to harm you, plans to give you a hope & a future.’”
Let God be the one to guide your steps. Proverbs 16:9 says “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” It’s ok to let God know that this is what you want. & if you have prayed about it & feel God’s leading you towards it, then you just have to trust that God will make a way. If it’s God’s best for you, it’ll happen. If not, trust something better will come your way.
Surrender your hopes & desires to Him & see where He leads you :)
"Seems like all I can see was the struggle. Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past. Bound up in shackles of all my failures, wondering how long is this gonna last. Then You look at this prisoner & say to me ‘son, stop fighting a fight that’s already been won.’ I am redeemed, You set me free."

"Turn me around, pick me up. Undo what I’ve become. Bring me back to the place of forgiveness & grace. I need You, I need Your help. I can’t do this myself. You’re the only one who can undo what I’ve become."
