A Fountain-Pen’s Boast

Anthologia Palatina 9.162 (author and date unknown)

I was a reed, a useless plant-
For from me grow no figs,
Nor apples, nor clusters of grapes.
But a man initiated me
Into the company of Helicon’s Muses:
He bore into me thin lips
And dug a narrow channel through me.
Ever since then, whenever I drink
A black draught of ink,
As if I were divinely inspired
I utter every word imaginable
From this voiceless mouth.

Ἤμην ἀχρεῖον κάλαμος φυτόν· ἐκ γὰρ ἐμεῖο
 
οὐ σῦκ’, οὐ μῆλον φύεται, οὐ σταφυλή·
ἀλλά μ’ ἀνὴρ ἐμύησ’ Ἑλικωνίδα λεπτὰ τορήσας
  χείλεα καὶ στεινὸν ῥοῦν ὀχετευσάμενος.
ἐκ δὲ τοῦ εὖτε πίοιμι μέλαν ποτόν, ἔνθεος οἷα
 
πᾶν ἔπος ἀφθέγκτῳ τῷδε λαλῶ στόματι.

I can literally boast of nothing in me, nothing of me. the more I know Christ and pursue Him, the more clear my own sin becomes. The more I strive to holiness, the more I see how not even close I am, and amazingly enough that’s when Christ is most glorified. In my weakness. I have been praying for months that He would show me what His grace really is, what His love truly is, that I would understand the gravity of who He is. I never expected this. He is everything. It’s almost paradoxical, the way that the clearer my sin becomes the brighter that Jesus shines, the more I see my weaknesses and how fallen I am, the more I see how deep and how wide and how grand His love is and the more grace becomes this unbelievable gift given to me to behold and how much all of this brings me the greatest joy I’ve ever known. It’s surreal that His love covers my sins, that His grace pours out over me from sunrise to sunset. it’s all so glorious.

These are just words friends, all just words until you experience this between you and Him. the Word of God used to be just glorious words to me that I’d try so hard to live out and figure out. But all He calls you to do is pursue Him, ask of Him, seek, the more you seek the more you will find and I too pray that you would abound in the knowledge of Him and how great and high and deep and low His love and His grace is. He is life changing. If you want that, simply go, ask, and get it.

I’ve had an awful couple of days and cried more than I have in years. I haven’t wanted to do anything. I decided to open up my Bible and this verse is exactly what I needed •2 Corinthians 12:9-10 My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong•

anonymous asked:

I wish I was born in Dubai or one of those wealthy Arab countries so I can be rich too and have everything I want like those other Muslim girls.

“And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us, but only he (will please Us) who believes, and does righteous deeds; for such (people), there will be a double reward for what they did, and they will reside in the high dwellings (of Paradise), in peace and security.” Qur'an 34:37

“Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion.” Qur'an 57:20

I wish I could be of those who can practise their religion without being told what to do.

Today was my big presentation

About these conferences in high school on depression?

I did so well that I received two prizes (One of the two for best personality, as well as one of the two for best presentation), and several people congratulated me on it afterwards.

I’m sorry for boasting, but to be honest, I’ve never been so proud of myself…

Careful Icarus

Careful Icarus.
Don’t fly too close
to the sun.
Don’t get too close
with your wings.
Wax melts. 

But father
I want to fly.
I want to soar.
I want to be like a bird. 

Careful Icarus.
Don’t get ahead
of yourself.
Don’t get
boastful.
Don’t think
you are invincible. 

But father
I have wings.
I can fly.
I can do whatever I want. 

Careful Icarus.
The sun is hot.
It will melt
your wings.
Stay back. 

But father
This is fun.
This is free.
I am in control. 

Careful Icarus.
You’re getting
too far.
You’re getting
too close.
Your wings
are melting.
Goodbye Icarus.
