I am more interested in your fruit than I am your theology. If your knowledge doesn’t better equip you to love, it’s worthless.
The Christian life is one of balance between the humbling knowledge that you don’t know what you’re doing, and the confidence that God does.
Waking up to an empty house, and pot of coffee shared by myself; this is the kind of silence that kills, and swells. The sort of stagnancy that might lead one to believe they are in a living hell.
I think about walking in front of cars a lot still.
I am what is left of what never was me, sown upon the ashes of disbelief.
We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.

Sometimes you need to burn bridges to stop yourself from crossing them again.
Being in love is a good thing, but it is not the best thing. There are many things below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now no feeling can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all. Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go.
