“A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul.”—David Gemmel (via tobeheal-ed)
He defeated drug abuse.
He defeated alcoholism.
He defeated self-mutilation.
He defeated sexual immorality.
He defeated greed.
He defeated hate.
He defeated the lies.
He defeated shame
He defeated sin.
He defeated the grave.
He resurrected and rose from the tomb so that you could be free from every form of bondage that holds you back.
Be free today because our Savior has defeated the grave.
why does anyone even care about other people doing things that have no negative outcome? like let girls take selfies with starbucks!! let straight dudes wear weird clothes!! let gay people be as feminine or as masculine as they want!! the next time you find yourself getting annoyed at someone, ask yourself “is this disrespectful? is this harmful to me or anyone else?” if the answer is no, then let it go - you probably have bigger things to worry about anyways
If you judge me, you have no time to love me. If I’m doing something incorrectly, let me know. Don’t talk to Jack, Jill and Sue about my mishaps or shortcomings. This disempowers me. Reach out, show me the way, provide guidance and suggestions—THIS empowers me. If I’m doing something incorrectly, doesn’t it indicate that in that moment, in that space, that’s the best decision I could make given my current level of consciousness?
Aren’t we all evolving beings doing the best we can under our current level of consciousness? Judgment prevents you from seeing others as your equal. I just have one statement and I’m done. When you judge others, you secretly demonstrate to yourself that because of your own mishaps, shortcomings and flaws you too are unlovable and not enough.
So again, I repeat, if I’m doing something incorrectly reach out, show me the way, provide guidance and suggestions. How you treat others will always be more about YOU than it will ever be about them. The next time you feel compelled to judge, remember, this person is your equal. They hurt, like you do. They bleed, like you do. They are evolving, like you are. Empower your fellow brother or sister.
