03/14…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love”
~Gal. 5:6

Quote of the Day:
“If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again. ”
~Flavia Weedn

Article Excerpt of the Day:
“I think sometimes we do the same thing with our faith. We take the blood and gore of our lives, the sin and the failure and the hurt and the horror, and we tell everyone that everything is OK. We cover our limps with holy-looking actions and keep moving on with our lives. We hide the bad stuff and highlight the good stuff until no one can tell that things aren’t perfect. We shine up our scars until they look good enough to not be considered scars…
…Stop shining your scars. It’s OK for them to be painful. The things you did and the things you had done to you hurt, and admitting that out loud doesn’t add more failure to your heart. If anything, it creates a lighthouse of sickness in you for the doctor, Jesus, who came looking for the sick.”
~“Shining up our Scars” by Jon Acuff

Currently listening to “The Heat” by NeedToBreathe
