Can this be love?


Love can wait, lust must have it now. 
Love is selfless, lust is selfish. 
Love is giving; lust is taking. 

Love is patient; lust is impatient. 
Love is meek; lust is arrogant. 
Love is manageable; lust is impulsive. 

Love develops;  lust destroys. 
Love is peaceful; lust is anxious. 
Love serves; lust says- this is what I deserve. 
Love rejoices with the truth; lust rejoices in wrong doings. 

Love is secure; lust is insecure. 
Love liberates; lust imprisons. 
Love forgives; lust condemns. 
Love is purity; lust is sin. 
Love is of God; lust is from the world. 

And let's never forget if we don't ever want to suffer, we must be very careful never to love anything or anybody. The gifts of love have been the gifts of suffering. Those two things are inseparable. Elisabeth Elliot


Psalm 119:9 

How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to Your Word.

if it matters to you, it matters to God

He knows our hearts and minds, He sees us and He remembers us. He understands every tiny bits of us because He created us.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
