The Wildest Part (Tuesday Quote)

“The very fact that a holy, eternal, all-knowing, all-powerful, merciful, fair, and just God loves you and me is nothing short of astonishing. The wildest part is that Jesus doesn’t have to love us. He doesn’t need me or you. Yet He wants us, chooses us, even considers us His inheritance (Eph. 1:18).”

To Love Is To Be Vulnerable

“Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one…Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

-C.S. Lewis

“There are certain treasures…(Tuesday Quote)

“There are certain treasures you won’t find anywhere else, but by going through a dark time. The key is you reach out for God’s hand, and He’ll reach out for yours, and take you through. So the choice is yours, stay here and stay safe, or, discover the secret of the passageway.”
