I have always hated change!
It's terrifying. It can get you out of your comfort zone, cause you to lose sleep, distract you from everyday activities, and make you rethink your life goals. . but change is good. it's a fresh start, a chance to try again, an opportunity to do it better, to live life fuller, to take risks for worth while causes. God uses change so much in life. It's often easy to blame the devil for it because it's not fun to do things differently, and sometimes it's easy to get irritated at circumstances. Patience is hard! I think patience could be one of the hardest hurdles for me. Already so, so many life altering things have happened to people in my life this year, and it is a shock. We aren't used to change, we aren't used to difficulty, we aren't used to love ones being in pain. We're used to a simple life, where when someone catches the flu we feel sympathy for them. We don't know the true definition of sympathy, obviously. Waiting for God's timing, or someone elses takes true trust, true love, and true dedication. It's difficult to set aside all your worries and say, whatever happens in the end, i'll be fine with. That takes really hard work. But God expects it. Why? Because He knows we are capable of it. He knows that if we submit to Him, and decide to follow whatever He tells us to do that we will succeed, we won't fail, and we won't be miserable. But He also knows what a stretch it will be. He knows how selfish we are, how greedy, and how comfortable we are in the little hole we dug for ourselves. But he's willing to help us get out of that hole, and live for Him! Change is good, God is better. And He will prove Himself. forever.

God has a purpose for everything. He truly does. When life hands you a surprise, and you open it up and find agony, fear, error, sadness; God is there. God will always be there. Through thick and thin. Through trial and error. Through heartache and suffering. God will be there, and he will uplift and encourage.

summer joys.

love. [redefined]

Sometimes God gives you an incredible love, an incredible person,
a fantastic fairytale. And then sometimes, He let's someone destory
that love, and demolish that fairytale . Sometimes he let's your heart
break, your soul ache, and your faith shake. Sometimes you're pushed
to the edge, dangling over, gripping nails to gain composure. Sometimes
the end doesn't seem in sight. The hurdles seem unconquerable, and
undefeatable. The decisions between what you want and what you need
... The boundaries are so undefined ! No dictionary, no professor, no
theologian can tell you the right choice. It simply cannot be decided.
It can't be decided alone.. Without the help of a Greater. See, God is
the one who can guide those decisions. He can bring peace. He can
bring happiness and love far greater than any man is capable of.
He known exactly what His children need, what they're lacking, and why
they're crying! Sometimes he does allow others to break hearts and
shake faith, just as a wake up call . He always, always, always has
a plan. Though it's hard to see,He knows what He is doing and His
agenda is far more intense and rewarding than anything you could
ever imagine. Love isn't just a giddy feeling, a pat on the back, or
a friendly embrace. Love is strong. Love is tough. Love is doing something
you don't feel like doing, anyway because you love that person.
Love is trustworthy, it doesn't judge others , love carries a peace.
Love is sacred, love is by example, God. Comparing anything to God
's love just shows how off mark the world is. Love is patience. Love
is often more draining and sometimes more frusterating that hatred
can be. Love isn't always fun, it isn't always enjoyed. True love
is real, though . It has the power to heal. It has the power to witness
it has the power to transform a life. It has the
