• When you feel alone, unwanted, or unlovable, please remember that the way this world treats you and makes you feel is far from truth. Jesus sees you and claims you as His own. He sees the parts that you hate about yourself and still chooses you everyday. Our God created you so He could love you every moment. You're so much more.

Warrior Culture : Mongol

The Mongolian Empire is perhaps the most underrated of them all. Ironic since at its hights it controlled more land than Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Adolf Hitler combined. They were predominantly a nomadic horse warrior people, able to ride for days and outwit, out maneuver, and out survive their enemies. Brutal and effective in battle with enemies, but magnanimous in peace with friends, as it should be.
