The Bible is not a set of rules and regulations that must be followed to earn a place near God. It is a picture, painted over thousands of years, of God’s pursuit of mankind. It is the story of the bridegroom seeking his bride. Is he going to strike you with lightning or pull all his blessings from your life if you sin? Probably not. But he gave you his heart to protect. Religion prevents you from seeing in the spirit because it puts a wall of regulation and duty where God intended to put love. It makes you a slave when he’s looking for a son.
Blake K. Healy, The Veil (via aviolenthope)
The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.
Laura Ingalls Wilder (via sorakeem)

Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.

Psalms 119:143 KJV

Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
Saint Augustine  (via proverbs31v25)

Imagine that even a snowflake that is formed and can fade away in a moment, God still has the careful to make this so perfectly. 
Now imagine you.

Now imagine you.

When someone says, “I haven’t felt God in a long time. I feel like He is gone. He left me.” I would just tell them, “He said He would never leave you nor forsake you. He is as close as the mention of His name. Just believe that. You don’t need to feel Him to know He is with you. Just believe Him. Don’t make God a feeling. He is not a feeling. He’s Spirit and Truth, and He lives in you.”

“There is a God. His love is wide enough to embrace all humankind without distinction or exception. It is not a vague or sentimental love. God’s love is of immeasurable intensity demonstrated by his willingness to sacrifice his only son for us.”

jesuslivesinmyheart:

It has been said that generous people generate things. When we see the world as abundantly provided for us by God, we are able to give freely what has been freely given to us. But if we see everything as limited and sparse, we will withhold things that others need, which will create a blindness in our soul that leads us to poverty. How do you view what has been entrusted to you?

I’ll be your lighthouse when you’re lost at sea
And I will illuminate everything
No need to be frightened by intimacy
No, just drop your fear and come running to Me
