driving to LA and the sky is perfect once again.

but when isn’t it?

I believe that worship ought to be everything we do, not just music. after all, worship can be said as “worth-ship.” it is us acknowledging God’s worth (and he is worthy of so, so much). 

but music definitely plays a huge part in that. the psalmist said that He hath put a new song in my heart! God loves hearing it. 

I have discovered that coming apart and just worshipping him through music by myself is so good for my soul. corporate worship is needful, for sure, but it is so different from this incredibly raw and personal moment solely with Him.

just as I am without one plea,

but that Thy blood was shed for me.

and that thou bidst me come to Thee!

o, Lamb of God, I come! I come
.

I come broken to be mended!
I come wounded to be healed!
I come desperate to be rescued!
I come empty to be filled!
I come guilty to be pardoned
by the blood of Christ the Lamb.
and I’m welcomed with open arms,
praise God, just as I am.

ajanadanielle:

I am lost
in a paradise
that I cannot escape.

you are my paradise.

your eyes are gravity –
I come back 
no matter how I run, 
so I don’t run.

still I run to you

with hopes in one hand
and my heart in the other,
exposed to all,
but never you. 

cause it was always you.

You’re not the only one
who’s ever felt this way.
Don’t let the world cave in;
just tell me that you’ll stay.
"Stay," by Nick Jonas

Bruce Wayne watched both of his parents die.

Tony Stark has heart problems and anxiety.

Peter Parker saw his uncle being murdered.

Steve Rogers lost his best friend.

Bruce Banner attempted suicide.

If they can save the world, you can get through this day.

Never stop fighting.

you’re the only one
I want to watch the sky with;
she’s the only sky
you ever want to watch.

Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit. (via internetcallgirl)

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. Psalm 56:3
I’m holding on to your promises.
You are faithful!

nighttime thoughts

if I can be totally honest with you (after all, that is what tumblr is for) I’ve been incredibly stressed lately. stressed and frustrated and just ticked at myself. mostly about school, but a number of things things make these feelings surface too.

and I hate it.

I hate being at the point where I nearly despise myself for letting me fall so deeply into things, or fall behind and lack in others.

not only that; it also affects my mood and countenance strongly. like tonight. my best friend came over and every moment I’m with her I cherish because they’re so rare. but halfway through our time together I started thinking about the things that have been discouraging me. and man. I knew I was showing it on my face. made me feel like a lousy person to be with. (side note: feelings are liars. but I tend to forget.)

I just feel it so deeply. feeling deeply is good. as a friend of mine likes to quote to me, “exists no miracle mightier than this- to feel.” but these feelings are different when they’re deep. they get very close to my heart. and that’s not really my favorite thing. not anybody’s.

so I’m really thankful for Joshua 1:5. here God promises to be with Joshua, as He was with Moses. God promised to never forsake him. we don’t have to face things by ourself. and it isn’t a “maybe.” it’s a real genuine promise from the God who cannot lie.

im just trying to find the will to hold on to it.
