Whoa. God is so faithful to be taking me to Italy and France and all over Europe. I’m grateful for the things He has taken away & for the things He has blessed me with. He’s taught me so much about leaning on Him and His power, not my own careless and unknowing mind. He has taught me that although life has so many ups and downs, He is a constant lover, a constant shoulder to lean on, and a constant hand to hold when things seem to get difficult. I don’t know where I would be if He hadn’t broken me down and made me realize that I needed Him more than anything I could say I “needed” in this life. He has taught me that by leaning on Him and Him alone, I can never feel lonely or lost because He is always the little light of hope in the back of my mind telling me that there are better days, that there is a purpose for everything that happens in my life and that He is always near. He has turned my life completely around, and in the best ways possible. I’m eternally grateful! Praise Jesus for a broken heart that is now healed. Praise Jesus for the constant love He showers me with. Praise Jesus for the sacrifice He made to let me know that I am truly loved by the best guy out there— God himself. Praise Jesus forever!
“No one here to believe but You
Everyone else is bound to leave but You
When they swear their love is real
They mean “I like the way you make me feel”
No one here to believe but You
There’s no one here to believe than You.”

God has been so faithful.
Desire Jesus, desire His word, desire His direction & He will make you stronger than you can imagine.
If you’re going through a rough time right now, rely on Jesus. He is the only savior for you, the only One who can cure you from your pain, sadness, loss, despair, anger, frustration, and anything negative that may be surrounding your life and encompassing your heart right now. You may try to find peace and guidance from others, hoping that they may be able to cure you. You will find, however, that although they may be able to help you find some form of peace with your situation (hopefully they are leading you closer to Christ) they cannot be your savior. They may give you some helpful words of encouragement, help you to carry on, and let you know that eventually you will get better, but they are not the ones whom you should place all your hope upon. It is Jesus who died on the cross to save us, to cleanse us from our filthy sin-filled lives, to help us understand that there IS a wonderful God out there who cares about us deeply and loves us enough to sacrifice His life for us. It is Jesus who can guide you by still waters when you’re in the midst of a terrible desert. It is Jesus who can take away your enemies and make your weak heart strong again. It is Jesus and only Jesus who can cure you from your crippling pain.
When there are others around you to help you carry on, remember that Jesus was the one to place those people in your life – to help you understand His love for you, and how He is constantly watching over you. You may not see Jesus here on Earth, but you can see His Holy Spirit working in others around you, showing you the love that you needed, especially during rough times. When the love of others and their guidance in your life helps you through this desert of troubles that you’re in, remember to thank God and continue to place your hope in Him and Him alone. Remember that people can help you along, but Jesus is the only One who can save you. He loves you and He will always help you through every season in your life, as long as you always place your hope in Him and not worldly things, trusting Him that He knows what He’s doing. He’s God after all, so what should we fear? Trust Jesus, hope in Jesus, find peace in Jesus.
Hallelujah for what God is doing in my life right now.
I’m very joyful :)
This is what I need tonight.
Holding on to Him for eternity.
