Poetry for Jesus

Sharing JESUS through Christian Writing.

spiritualinspiration:

If God made everything happen right away, or whenever we wanted it to happen, it wouldn’t require anything of us. We would miss the opportunity to grow because we grow in the difficult times. We grow when our faith is being stretched, when we have to believe when we don’t see any reason to believe, when we stay in faith when our mind is telling us we’re wasting our time, when we give God praise but we really feel like complaining. That’s passing the test. When you do that every day, your faith is not only increasing, your character is not only being developed, but you are one day closer to seeing the promise come to pass.
Today, don’t give up on a promise just because you’ve been waiting a long time. Dig your heels in. Put on a new attitude. God is saying, “Every promise I’ve spoken over you, every dream I’ve placed in your spirit, even the secret petitions of your heart, the dreams you haven’t told anyone about, I still have every intention of bringing them to pass.” Stay close to Him. Obey His Word and move forward in the blessing and victory He has prepared for you!

“‘Sufferings drive us to God…We cry to God for blessings, but we do not really want him. He has to teach us that he is the greatest blessing of all.’”

“What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back.”
Chester Bennington (via yesdarlingido)

“I can say that Jesus’s grace is beautiful, but until I live in it, I will never be changed. Attraction to the gospel is popular, but submission to the Father through Jesus Christ is something that nobody truly desires. Jesus tells us to follow Him, not just His teachings, it is a complete surrender of me, for a complete gain of Him, and until that becomes our daily routine, it will only be a pretty little sticker we place on our fridge door.”

“Does he or she lead you to Christ? Or do they lead you to themselves. Do you fall in love with Jesus when you are with them? Or do you fall in love with them. It’s so easy to make that special someone your top prize, but when it comes to another heart, they cannot be what you are striving for; they can only help you get there.”
T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via kvtes)

“You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful - or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.”

Having hope in God means no one else finishes the story but Him, and everything really will be okay. We do not need to fear optimism. Life will still hurt and there is darkness ahead — but we have a Healer, a Counselor, a King, a Father, a Friend. We can get our hopes up: all the way up to Him.
