Many times we think someone is ranting, but they’re actually speaking with conviction: and everyone has just forgotten the sound of real passion. We’re so afraid of absolutes and a strong gut and digging in your heels, that we dismiss the powerful voice of a lonely fighter.

Listen for quiet strength, for humble confidence. It’s not often someone will stand for what is right, what is true, what is pure. More often we’re afraid to admit we’re afraid, because the truth is so blinding in a dark world. — J.S.

Powerful image! These days it would probably include the phone we are holding in our hands 📲 Make sure you balance your entertainment time with time in God’s Word. I try to remind myself that I’m not here on this planet to be entertained, I’m here to love, spread the Gospel and make a difference in people’s lives. Let’s go! 🙏🙌💖 [I have no clue where this image originated, so let me know if you do and I’ll update the caption]
