jesus christ my life is complete

repeat after me:
  • Jesus didn't die on the Cross for me to feel this type of guilt, shame, and unworthiness... He died for the complete opposite reasons. He died so I could live in freedom. He died because despite my mistakes, His love triumphs over them. I'm undeserving, but unconditionally loved by God!
What made me love Christ wasn’t that all of a sudden I figured out how to do life. What made me love Christ is that when I was at my worst, when I was at my lowest point, when I absolutely could not clean myself up and there was nothing anybody could do with me, right at that moment, Christ said, “I’ll take that one. That’s the one I want.” You know the Bible calls the church Christ’s bride. So it’s like standing before Jesus, completely exposed, all of our flaws and insecurities and— worse than that— our sins are right there in front of his face, and against all reason and rationale, the song of grace becomes startlingly, exhilaratingly true because the Groom looks at us and declares us beautiful. Spotless. Righteous. Justified. This is the gospel. It is important to admit, believers in Jesus, that Christians are not more moral than anyone else. The essence of the gospel and what we celebrate is not that “we can” but that Christ did.

The sweetest moments we can ever have in this life on earth are the ones that trade sorrow for joy, lift up shame for redemption, and let go worry for peace in surrender to the Lord Jesus.

He will return to complete His glory. Have you welcomed His gift of grace to you?

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. (Revelation 3:20 NASB)

No matter how late it seems, while there is the now, trusting the Lord Jesus is your sweet hope :) His unfailing love will never leave you where you were found.

It is now 5:08AM and just finished watching Yuri!!! On Ice for the second time. Skate 11 dubbed is supposed to come out on kiss anime in about 2 hours so I’ve an alarm set for 7AM but I might not get any sleep- the last time i pulled an all-nighter ( which was last week watching a different anime ) I was out cold from 6AM to 2PM… Jesus Fucking Christ what the fuck has my life become..? I bet @levi-fandom474 can agree, who is cutting her hair Yurio style next week. While I’m taking about Yuri!!! On Ice, I might as well address the fact that it has helped me appreciate figure skating that much more, and man do I feel stupid for not getting into this sooner- I am completely obsessed and do *not* say I’m not, because from 1:30 to 5:00AM I have been singing History Maker and just loving the way Viktor and Yuri care so much about each other. I cried and laughed and wished they were real millions of times whilst watching this. Yuri!!! On Ice is definitely in my top five ( three actually ) anime list ( Sailor Moon, Attack On Titan, Yuri!!! On Ice, Death Note and Ouran High School Host Club )!!!! I cannot wait to watch skate 11 and 12 dubbed, because fir once, they actually made it work! And I definitely can’t wait for season 2…

Loneliness is temporary… and yes, for a moment, it is so painful. But despite being lonely, please remember that it doesn’t mean you are alone. God is with you. It’s tough because He cannot physically hold your hand through the rough days, but His promises remain true forever. He has promised to be with us until the very end (Isaiah 41:10). Even the presence of other people cannot completely satisfy you. Even this, is temporary. BUT if we learn to be satisfied in Him alone, our problems become less and less and He becomes more in our lives. We were each born with a hole in our lives that only He can fill.

Today I began the journey of praying for and writing letters to my future husband, whoever he may be.

I’ve been falling way too far away from God, wishing and wondering why I haven’t met someone that will love me.

Today I realized that my heart is not ready to let a man into my life. It won’t be ready until I’ve allowed God to love me completely and I learn to love God, to turn to Him at all times, and to keep Him always in my thoughts, in my words, and in my heart.

From this day forward I vow to only seek God and to continue to pray for my future husband and allow God to work in my heart, making it again pure.

I ask you all to pray for me and I too will be praying for you.

Mother most pure, pray for us.

God bless
Hunter

Some people live their life without God. Some people live their life asking God for help in serious times of trouble. I’ve found I’m the 3rd type: I rely on God for even the smallest of things. You know what? It has made all the difference for me. I am completely dependent on Him, and that doesn’t scare me. It doesn’t scare me because I’ve relied on Him time and time again and He has never failed me. I’m not being cliche’ and I’m not trying to sugarcoat anything. It is hard for me to completely trust anyone, and it’s been that way for years. Even in times of trouble and failure, I’ve seen Him come through for me in ways that no person ever could. His love is so powerful in my life, and I am so thankful.

FUCK OKAY I JUST DID MY COCKLES OPS
I’M IN SHOCK
I’M DYING ALL OVER AGAIN FUCK OMG

JENSEN: OF COURSE

WE PULL APART AND THEN AUTOMATICALLY MISHA AND JENSEN START WHISPERING AND GIGGLING TO THEMSELVES

I believe there is always room for growth, and we should never be completely set in our ways. There is always something new to learn, and new experiences to grow. I believe God is constantly shaping our hearts and preparing us for what He has planned next, we need only to be willing and available for Him to do His work in our lives.

Reminders for the believer during the 2016 Election:

So far, 2016 is a crazy year. It’s only gonna get more wild as the year continues. Here are some things I’m trying to keep in mind this year, which I hope prove helpful for you as well:

  • No candidate is going to completely ruin us, or save us. God is on the throne and He knows His children’s needs well. If you got Jesus in your heart, you are going to be okay! Jesus saves us, not any politician or anyone else.
  • Have hope, and do not let your heart be troubled. Our faith is not in man, but in God. We are loved, redeemed, and our Father cares for us. He’s got you!!!!
  • Do not become bitter, angry, hateful or cynical. Our world may seem to be going in a downward spiral, but keep your eyes 6 feet and above. Do not let the evil in this world turn your heart to stone. Use this year to love more, and shed light in the darkest places. You are called to a higher purpose. Let God use you!
  • Cling to Jesus in all that you say and do. Keep your eyes on Him and trust that better days are coming. Amen.
