live curiously

I’m scared.

Yesterday morning, I listened to John Mayer’s Heart of Life. In one of the lines Mayer sings “fear is a misunderstood friend.” That concept, that perspective is something that really struck a chord with me. Fear can be so beautiful. It allows us an opportunity to plant our feet on the solid rock and stand our ground. To lift our voices above the storm. To show that faith and courage are victorious. It is fleeting, but gives us an chance to rise up when conflict and confusion intersect in our lives. That moment when everything aligns and culminates in fear, that is the perfect moment to praise glory be to our God. To stand behind His love that always wins and never fails. To feel small in the midst of our grander, mightier God. To know know our God is true and worth living for. Now this. This is our God.

Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you’re waiting.

What do I really want?
I can say that I really want a boyfriend, an amazing God-centered relationship. I want to be married and have kids that hear how amazing God’s love is. Yes, these are things I truly and wholeheartedly want.
But what do I really, truly, deeply want?
To know I am loved in the entirety of what that word means. To know that fact constantly, consistently, relentlessly. I forget too often that I am loved, that I am even lovable, that who I am is bigger than who I think I am. I doubt myself most of the time and the decisions I make sometimes I can’t stand behind. My insecurities desire counsel and reassurance, the comfort that things will be ok. Fear causes me to flee, whether it’s the start of something new and unknown or the end of something so dear to me. I need a love that pursues after me and will follow the bread crumbs of my broken self. I need to be healed of my past scars and the weight lifted off of all my emotional baggage. I want to be seen, known in all that I am and in that light loved and embraced despite my obvious and hidden imperfections.
All that my tiny heart has ever desired is all Jesus is and more.
How crazy is that.

Hey, I like you.
Without reserve, without demand for equal attention. My affections independent of yours. I’ll embrace the quiet stillness. Float on the ripples of time. My anchor is still our God.
The winds may bring change. The leaves may burn red to dust. But the soil will not remain fallow. The fruit will be bountiful. He is my maker.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

I think there’s something beautiful in trying to capture the elusive person behind the camera.

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 36:26, NIV)
In life, we all have negative things happen to us. We go through situations that are unfair. I know people who were raised in an unhealthy environment. Their parents had issues, and now it’s making it much more difficult on them.
But here is what I’ve learned: when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, He gives you a new heart. In other words, your blood line changes. No longer are you subject to your earthly heritage, you become subject to your heavenly heritage! His spiritual blessing always overrides the curse in the natural realm. When you understand who you are and what God has already done, then no matter what someone else has done, no matter how unfair it was, no matter how you were raised, you won’t get bitter. You won’t live with a chip on your shoulder. You realize that nothing can stop you from fulfilling your God-given destiny!
Today, remember you came from Almighty God. He gave you life. When you choose Him, you are choosing your heavenly heritage of blessing and eternal, abundant life!

French artist Isa Barbier deconstructs flight with his billowing installation artwork — he hangs feathers on fine filament so gravity never gets its way with them. Hauntingly beautiful.

mmm simplicity, yummy.

GAME OF THRONES 90s ERA

(Jon Snow and Joffrey Baratheon)

What “Game of Thrones” would have looked like if the action had been set in the 90s?

What if swords, bows, spears and armors had been replaced with some NES guns, bats and tracksuits?
This is a fun project i ve been recently starting, imagining all the characters fighting for the throne in a 90s grunge/gangsta era.

Follow me here

loving on some GoT right noww, my favorite is definitely Jon Snow

This sounds so familiar…
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever."

God sees our love as genuine even when it is weak.

I want to fly free. 
Fly away from my worries, my fears, my own brokenness. Sometimes things hurt and ache and all I want to do is fly free.
Moments like this make me appreciate this hope I hold fast to.
