"Does he or she lead you to Christ? Or do they lead you to themselves. Do you fall in love with Jesus when you are with them? Or do you fall in love with them. It’s so easy to make that special someone your top prize, but when it comes to another heart, they cannot be what you are striving for; they can only help you get there."
T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via laurenarlene)
"The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope."
Timothy Keller (via proverbs31v25)
"Can I say something to young ladies here? I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare. Lots of neat Christian boys, not a lot of Godly men. And we’re working our tails off for you to try to develop some into that. But don’t settle, because it’s better that you be lonely now than you be married and lonely later. Are you tracking with me? It is better that you be lonely now than for you to get married to a man that will teach your kids everything but the way of Jesus."

so, so important.

Plan a morning date. Wake up to the sun, go on a walk with God & see what majestic places He wants to show you. He is your prince after all, let Him treat you like a princess.

"No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek, find. To those who knock, it is opened."
C.S. Lewis (via caitlacoop)
"Develop a healthy relationship with food. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re full, don’t eat. Eat vegetables to be good to your body, but eat ice cream to be good to your soul.

Take pictures of yourself frequently. Chronicle your life. Selfies are completely underrated. Even if the pictures are unflattering, keep them anyway. There will always be mountains and cities and buildings, but you will never look the same way as you did in that one moment in time.

Your worth does not depend on how desirable someone finds you. Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time with people who make you feel beautiful.

Close doors. Don’t hold onto things that no longer brings you happiness and do not help you grow as a person. It is okay to walk away from toxic relationships. You are not weak for letting go.

Forgive yourself. We all have something in our pasts that we are ashamed of, but they only weigh us down if we allow them to. Make amends with the old you and work every day to become the person that you’ve always wanted to be."

"Falling in love is not the only adventure worthy of a young woman."
Caitlin Stasey (via bbrian4)
"I’m not going to get this precious time back. When am I ever going to have another chance to take a look at the world and decide just who I want to be—how I want to live? I can either coast through my twenties with a glass of wine in hand, making jokes about my lot in life as a single white female, or decide who I am—figure out who I want to be and become her. To love others well, celebrate often, screw the diet, and understand my own theology. Kiss the boys. Look pretty and be proud of who I’m becoming from the inside out. I don’t want to waste my time wishing I knew what the hell I believed. I need to figure it out for myself. Right now."
