Lately I’ve been learning that it’s not about whether we will suffer or not in this life. What it’s really about is whether we are willing to fight like hell to keep living through it all. You see, we already know we are going to suffer. We already know we are going to die. What we really have to find out is if we are actually going to live while we are here.
Playing victim is easy. We can make a dramatic fall and stay down as long as we please, living in the comfort of our own company and misery. What’s really tough is convincing ourselves that getting back up and risking it all over again is worth it. But it always is. I can promise you that.
So fight like hell. Whatever it takes, you fight. You get back up and you live.”

You cannot complete me, I cannot complete you.
A relationship cannot make two individuals whole, that is why we must be willing to give over our whole lives, even the life of the one person you love most, to Christ.
If you seek salvation in the arms of another, you will find more brokenness, but if you seek Christ, you will find grace; and that is of monumental importance in any relationship.
I can say you are beautiful, but the reality is that Christ offers more than words; that is greater than anything in this soul can offer.
If I am to love you, I must point you daily to the Father. If I am to care for you, I must be Christ daily. If I am to honor and cherish your heart, I must be willing to surrender it to Christ daily.
No other cornerstone is a relationship, or a single life, more worthy to be built on than the cornerstone of Christ.”
