humility.gentleness.patience.love

Jesus is my everything. † He never fails to amaze me, and I love Him more each day.

"It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe-Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E minor-loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love."

A religious person says, “I’m following the rules and I’m doing good.”

The Christian says, “I’m in a relationship with God, and He makes me good.”

Jesus will never reject you. your friends may turn you away, or a relationship may end, but He is always present and steadfast. no human is 100% reliable, but He is 100% trustworthy. 3. anything that causes you to need God is a blessing. this may seem odd, but hear the heart — rejection requires you to admit and accept the pain, but to also accept it as an opportunity to grow deeper and more dependant in your relationship with Christ. it won’t feel like a blessing straight away; and you don’t need to pretend that it does. you can rest in knowing that needing Him, and drawing near to Him will bring rest and love and healing. 4. accept the dare. rejection opens a door for you to respond, and will reveal what is beneath your surface. will you turn the other cheek? be gracious? fight back? if you’re in the right, will you still extend forgiveness willingly? 5. don’t stop loving. don’t let the past, rob you of your future. 6. be humbled. just as Jesus took rejection of mankind on His shoulders in a selfless act of love; you too need to sometimes remember, it’s not about you. and lastly number 7. freely you have received; freely give.’ no matter how deeply you have been rejected, you can freely receive His love. He is the source, not the affection of other people. depend on Him to fill your tank; and continue to love.Instagram: @_jacintanest // @littlekinta

You know what’s the best part? God cannot lie to you, so If He says you’ll be safe, you know it’s not just to make you feel better, if he says that he loves you, it’s because he does. He is able to give his most precious son to show you that. If he promised you something, He will make it happen.

God won’t bless a relationship that He isn’t a part of.
