devotion!

Your word have I hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. Psalm 119:11
Do you want to know how to live a more holy and victorious life?
Firstly, seek the Lord with all your heart. It means to desire Him, want Him, need Him above any and every other desire. Secondly, hide God’s word in your heart. Study the word so that the Holy Spirit can bring it to your remembrance when you need it. So you can then be comforted, corrected, and guided.
You should seek to live pure lives by living according to His word because to do so glorifies God. It honours Him. Pleasing God because you love Him and want to honour Him.

Heru-wer: The General

He stands before me, breathing star-fire.

He tells me to swallow galaxies.

There’s planets under my ribcage and stars in my throat.

I hold out my hand to his and compare the shimmer

No match. He has aeons in his eyes,

A thousand histories nestled in his heart,

And the ends and beginnings of Earth wedged between his teeth.

I open my mouth and I call him father.

The word falls from my mouth: all aurora across sky and space.

He smiles.

Pushes me off the cliff.

And tells me to trust my wings.

I’ve been saving up the I-N-G tickets that T7S gives you for free like since the game mode came out and that’s because I know I’m bouta spend em all at once when Episode Sawori drops

“When I open a door, no one can close it. And when I close a door, no one can open it. Revelation 3:7
Psalm 84:11-12 says, "The LORD bestows favour and honour. No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
God loves us too much and knows us too well to give us everything we ask for. A closed door may seem like failure on our part but it’s in fact His sovereign protection over us, perhaps from potential harm or danger. It may be a divine detour into something amazing. Be sure that His plan for our lives is always better.
God is not setting you up for disappointment or failure. He’s setting you up for something better. And when He opens the right door, no one will be able to shut it. God’s plans for you will succeed and His promises stand firm forever.

Look. I understand that the 616 stony fandom is all about pining!Tony, and that’s all good. I only know the MCU, though, and that’s different. In the MCU, pining!Steve is the real. Not only does Tony have a serious girlfriend who he really loves while Steve is pretty much defined by his loneliness, but the movies #confirm it. Consider:

  • Iron Man 1: no mention of Captain America
  • Iron Man 2: Tony has half of a replica Cap shield but it’s made clear he doesn’t think much of it.
  • Iron Man 3: even after meeting Steve, he isn’t mentioned at all in Tony’s movie. Tony is more interested in Pepper.
Meanwhile take a ding dang look at the Captain America movies:
  • The First Avenger: Tony isn’t born yet but Steve spends considerable time with Tony’s sperm donor.
  • The Winter Soldier: Tony is specifically mentioned like a dozen times and there’s some foreshadowing about a future conflict with (oh guess who it’s) TONY.
  • Civil War: Tony is. Literally? There. He’s the deuteragonist. The PRIMARY conflict is Steve dealing with the issues he has regarding his friendship with TONY STARK.
Like even if we take into account the fact that Tony IS the center of the MCU. The Thor movies do not focus on Tony this way. Incredible Hulk only had him as a cameo. Tony is a HUGE part of Steve’s story. SPECIFICALLY.
So anyway. That’s why I love pining!Steve.
