❝ When God gives you a command, He’s not telling you, “Don’t do this, and do this.” He’s not to trying to restrict your behavior - He’s trying to deepen and widen your joy. He’s saying, “This is reality and how I made things, and this is how things work. This is what is for your best. I have your best interests at heart. This is the way the universe was designed to be in perfect harmony. ❞

❝ Each time you feel as though you are denying yourself, you are actually blessing yourself. Each time you walk away from temptation and refuse to stoke the fires of passion prematurely, you are sending yourself the best gifts you will receive on the day of your wedding — Gifts of Trust and Respect and Increased Passion. ❞

The most beautiful thing

is that He knows

what you are about to tell Him

and yet

He still listens.

And shall I pray Thee change Thy will, my Father,
Until it be according unto mine?
But, no, Lord, no, that never shall be, rather
I pray Thee blend my human will with Thine.

I pray Thee hush the hurrying, eager longing,
I pray Thee soothe the pangs of keen desire—
See in my quiet places, wishes thronging—
Forbid them, Lord, purge, though it be with fire.

Reminder: I need Jesus just as much as someone who hasn’t met him.

❝ This is the secret – whether we are single or married – to finding contentment no matter what our situation. To turn down the volume of our selfish, screaming emotions and attune our ears to our King’s gentle whisper. To yield to His strength rather than the power of our own desires. To choose to love, give, serve and pour out our lives for Him, asking nothing in return. It’s what He did for us. And it’s what He asks us to do for Him. ❞
