There is life outside of the window that I pull shades over every night. Real life people with real life problems and pains and joys and life, and I want to love them more than I do.
What you have is from the Lord. So is what you don't have. Both are gifts.
"Money can't buy me love... no, no, no..."
Social media is a great tool, but a horrible god. Don't let it consume you.
Covetousness is a fools errand. And it is one that I must consciously pray through and against on the daily.
I am insecure in these admissions, but I used to rejoice in them. I don't know what changed, but I'm not as comfortable in my own skin now as I once was. Realistic, repentant, redemptive. That was always the aim. Kurt Cobain said that "censorship is a very American thing to do." I want to live in a different kingdom. I believe that honesty and transparency and repentance are vital aspects of health (and sanity for that matter). I am tired of acting like I've got it together. It's simply not who I am. I don't. My only hope is that someone does.
The gospel is true and deserving of full acceptance, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.
Community is wisdom.
The world is going to keep spinning. It's okay. Turn off. Unplug. Read a book. Watch a film. Have sex with your wife or husband. Enjoy the company of your friends and family and "be...
... still and know that I am God."
Jesus loves you. Do not let his gospel become cliche.
