Quote of the Day:
“I’ve climbed & fallen, I’ve laughed & cried, smiled & screamed, crawled & walked, succeeded & failed, but I’m still standing tall.”

Lyrics of the Day:
“I don’t wanna steal you away
Or make you change the things that you believe
I just wanna drink from the words you say
And be everything you need
Yeah I could be so good at loving you
But only if you told me to”
~“If You Told Me To” by Hunter Hayes

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

Verse of the Day:
“Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself.  Don’t compare yourself to others.  Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.”
~Gal 6:4-5

Quote of the Day:
“All of these women have become my sister, mother, boyfriend, teacher and therapist.  Most importantly, they helped me love who I am, because they love me.  I don’t usually cry or get that emotional but I’m gonna.  I would take one of these relationships over a million “acquaintances”.  We might not all live in the same city or talk every day or be best friends anymore, but they have made MY journey through life f***ing worth it.”
~Melissa Stephens “Depressionista: Anne of Green Gables, Who is Your Diana

04/19…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
~Gal 5:13

Quote of the Day:
“If you have never failed at anything, it is predictable that you are playing small. Failure or falling down has been given a bad rap. When you get out of your comfort zone and go for the things you REALLY, REALLY want, you risk success, not failure. Learning from failure is an incredible gift and brings you one step closer to your success.”
~Mark Chevy

Lyrics of the Day:
“Because I- am not perfect
But I- know I’m worth it
And I- gotta believe, there has to be a you
For every girl like me.”
~“Every Girl Like Me” by Sugarland

07/28…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“But suppose we seek to be made right with God through faith in Christ and then we are found guilty because we have abandoned the law. Would that mean Christ has led us into sin? Absolutely not! Rather, I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down. For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God.”
~Gal 2:17-19

01/27…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down.  For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God.  My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.  I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die..”
Gal. 2:18-21

Poem of the Day:
“O Me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring;
Of the endless trains of the faithless—of cities fill’d with the foolish;
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light—of the objects mean—of the struggle ever renew’d;
Of the poor results of all—of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me;
Of the empty and useless years of the rest—with the rest me intertwined;
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?


That you are here—that life exists, and identity;
That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.”
~ “O Me! O Life!” by Walt Whitman

Lyric of the Day:
“How can I keep from singing Your praise
How can I ever say enough
How amazing is Your love
How can I keep from shouting Your name
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing”
~ “How can I Keep From Singing”  Chris Tomlin
