I notice you, I want to say. Even when no one else does, I do. I will.

Within the souls of the awkward and the overlooked often burns something radiant.

The opportunity of a lifetime is to pick yourself. Quit waiting to get picked; quit waiting for someone to give you permission; quit waiting for someone to say you are officially qualified and pick yourself. It doesn’t mean you have to be an entrepreneur or a freelancer, but it does mean you stand up and say, “I have something to say. I know how to do something. I’m doing it. If you want me to do it with you, raise your hand.

Nick Vujicic is coming to speak in our country in the next few days and as part of my work in Christian radio, I am being given the chance to assist in one of our interviews with him.
I just want/need some help and insight.
So, if you have the chance to talk to Nick, what would you ask him? I’d really love to hear your thoughts!?

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.
- C.S. Lewis (via seabois)
Grace is when you finally stop keeping score and when you realize that God never was, that his game is a different one entirely. Grace is when the silence is so complete that you can hear your own heartbeat, and right within your ribs, God’s beating heart, too.

Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.
- Psalm 119:37 (via modernhepburn)
Consider Jesus, know Jesus, soak in the shadow of Jesus, saturate your soul with the ways of Jesus. Watch him, listen to him, stand in awe of him. Let him overwhelm you with the way he is.
- John Piper (via daisiesandcoffee)
There is a big difference between guilt and conviction. Guilt says that you are nothing but the sum total of your dirty little actions. That thought is not of God. Conviction, on the other hand, calls you to something more. It asks ‘why are you settling for this when I have something big and awesome for you?’
