Vous êtes mon cœur: A Poem by Wendell Brown

ivychiu:

A few months ago in Los Angeles, I saw a homeless man on the street while I was on an office run. He had a kind face, and he greeted me as I passed him. I wanted to stop and have a conversation with him, but I was preoccupied with the package I had to deliver and the meter running on my car—aren’t…

Excerpt from a post by Audrey Tom

Why is it that we always get asked, “What do you want to be” and not really asked, “What kind of person do you want to be?”

In college I focused so much of my mental and emotional energy trying to figure out if I wanted to be an orthodontist, a psychiatrist,…

Ah ha.

Uniquely wired, uniquely placed

littlethingsaboutgod:

You are put at where you are for a reason. It might not make sense to you at the moment, but God has the perfect plan for you. He has placed you there to learn more about His ways and love His people. 

You have been uniquely wired by God. And not only that, but the Bible says you’ve been uniquely placed by God.

When the Not-Yet Married Meet: Dating to Display Jesus

littlethingsaboutgod:

When people in the world are expecting less and less of each other in dating, God isn’t — so among the single we have to work harder in our not-yet married relationships to preserve what marriage ought to picture and provide.

The vision of marriage we see in God’s word –– the beautiful, radical display of God’s infinite, persevering love for sinners –– makes it worth it to date, and date well. The world’s approach can provide fun and sex and children and eventually even some level of commitment, but it cannot lead to the life-giving Jesus after whom our marriages are to take their cues.

The Qualities of God’s Glamour Girl
By Jacqueline J. Overpeck

Who is God’s glamour girl and what are her admirable qualities?

According to Scripture, she is:

G – Gorgeous inside and out
She fears the Lord knowing He is the source of all good things.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

Proverbs 31:30

L – Laughter
She’s isn’t afraid to laugh out loud and she looks for ways to encourage others.

…the joy of the LORD is your strength.
Nehemiah 8:10

A – All about adoration
She’s got a heart for applauding her King. She loves to praise and worship her God.

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Psalm 100:1-2

M – Mercy
Her heart is full of compassion and her hands are ready to serve.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:12-14

O – Original
She’s uniquely herself. She places her whole life in God’s hands—knowing as His creation she already shines like a star.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…
Psalm 139:13-14

U – Understanding
She has a ravenous appetite for wisdom and she loves to read the Bible. She’s thirsty for truth and delights in understanding the mysteries of God.

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established;
through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

Proverbs 24:3-4

R – Righteousness
She keeps herself pure. She desires to be an untarnished vessel for God’s anointing to flow through. Nothing is more important to God’s Glamour Girl than establishing heaven’s kingdom on earth.

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long.

Psalm 71:14-15

TRUE GLAMOUR
God’s glamour girl is gorgeous inside and out. She’s filled with laughter.
She has a song in her heart. Mercy springs from her spirit. She’s totally original. Her Bible is handy. She uses her unique gifts and talents to share the saving message of Jesus with the world.
