"If It's The Lord's Will"

All to Jesus.

At times I’m afraid you’ll see right through me, into the dark, and you’ll run screaming.

I’m afraid you’ll get to know me, and I won’t be as impressive as the hologram I have put on.

I’m scared you’ll see me as I really am, the dirty scarred horrible ugly kid inside, the irredeemable veiny creature beneath the hand-shaking smiles I wear all day.

I can only remember that I saw the darkest of you too, and it did not scare me: but rather drew me in, because I could not help but traverse the contours of your jagged heart. I tasted the worst of you, the fits and flailing and slobbery angry rage, but I also saw in you the very best, the passion to do good and to fight for you true self. None of this because of what you had yet to do, but because your wounds were your beauty, and your scarred heart was a story I wanted to discover.

You saw through me, yet the hope of undeserved grace brought us to stay. We sculpted our journey, the mountains and valleys, together. We are fellow travelers, always.

King, Creator, Most High

jspark3000:

Remember: You are under a King who has called you to His own greatness.

You serve a Creator who made a universe that fits in His hand.

You are friends with the Most High.

And you’re loved by Him — not merely loved as a prized object, but loved towards an awesome destiny while you still have breath left on His earth.

Whatever you’re going through: He is bigger and He is closer.

You can be a great preacher, a Christian scholar, a deacon or elder, attend church meetings daily, live a clean, moral life, memorize hundreds of verses of Scripture, direct a church choir, and teach Sunday school, but if you are not bearing fruit in the sense that you are introducing others to Christ, you are not filled and controlled by the Holy Spirit according to the Word of God.

jspark3000:

Don’t settle for less.

Don’t sell yourself short.

Don’t be rushed into a feeling, a decision, an opinion.

Don’t let anyone talk you down.

Drop the mic often.

Prioritize, for our time on earth is short.

Think for yourself.

Find your vision.  Listen.

Do not hide tears; they’re yours.

Trust God.  Take heart.  Keep passion.

Fight the good fight, fellow traveler.

Fight.

— J.S.

"After wrapping Guardians of the Galaxy I was very homesick and I was coming home to my wife and my son, who at the time was 13 months old. My wife told me ‘Hey, listen there’s a chance he may not recognize you and he may be a little shy’ and so I came in there, and he just sat right up and had this big smile on his face. He started saying ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy!’ and I just started to cry. He saw the tears in my eyes and started doing bits to make me laugh and that just made me cry more."

- Chris Pratt on the best day of his life.
