My joy is boundless ♥
And this Hope won't let me go.

Thessalonians 5:16-18 <3

"You can rest and find assurance in knowing that God is not fed up with you. That is a powerful thing to believe. When we walk confidently in the security of our identity in Christ, we can be bold and expose the lies of the enemy because they contradict the promises of God. The Lord never feeds your spirit with guilt or shame. You are free to live in the abundant life that has been purchased for your sake and that abundance applies to your thought life. In fact, that is where it must begin—the mind. Do not let the lies of the enemy threaten your security. Drag them into the presence of truth so they’ll become stripped of their power and dissolve. Stop listening to empty threats and speak what is true instead—that you are a child of God whom the Lord takes pleasure in and He is faithfully working in your life. Claim Him love for you so you will stop feeling like you have to prove yourself to him. He knows who you are. He knows the extent of your sin, but he also knows who he is sanctifying you to be. No, you do not deserve his forgiveness or love, but this is not about what you deserve. This is about the faithfulness and justice of God that is the fullness of love welcoming you to himself. And once you go to him, you’ll be embraced fully."

"And He calls us beloved, is that not more wonderful than all the praises of man?"

"My prayer is that when I die, all of hell rejoices that I am out of the fight."

"The beauty of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not that by following Him, we get what we want. Gosh, you don’t want most of what you want. And if God were to give them to you, it’d be cruel of Him. The good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is regardless of our circumstances, we get God and He’ll be enough. That on the day of trouble, we cry out, and we will hear, “Here I am.”"
