gerard about twitter: i stopped being on that social media because i found it draining, it’s such a negative space where people constantly argue! i prefer using image based social medias like instagram for example, i’m doing much better now :)))
frank, making 5 tweets per day and constantly roasting his followers: i’m not going to calm the fuhk down megan, just deal with it, p.s. your username sux RT
A note about those that only love you on the shallow end: There will be some that only want to know you in the moment; when you look your best, when you feel your best, or when you can best meet their momentary needs. And it can be tempting at times, to seek comfort and satisfaction in their attention and affection but please know this:
Your heart is attached to something far beyond the shallow end…out in the deep, beyond the boundaries of the comfortable, casual place where far too many people have settled, because they don’t want to commit to anything beyond the shore. But please remember, you were made for more. Please remember God has been calling you deeper from the start, for He has set Eternity in the human heart. He has created your heart, like a water well, filled with life, and everything you do flows from it.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. - Proverbs 4:23
⠀ Remember this when it seems like they only love you in passing, or they get what they want and leave. Not everyone will be ready for depth. Not everyone will willing to catch more than a glimpse of what God is doing in your heart. But you will be okay. Because when you know Jesus, you know that there is more to you, and there is more to come. When you know that Eternity awaits you, you know your life is not controlled by what happens on the shore, because you are constantly being drawn deeper into His grace and truth, further than you’ve ever gone before.
This is what God is doing in your water well of a heart, so protect it. Guard it. Keep watch of those that only want to come in and out. Pay attention to who stays, and is willing to go deeper. And not just because of you, but because they are exploring the glorious depth that God has placed in them, too.
