its kinda scary how your whole life depends on how well you do as a teenager 

except it doesn’t, really. you can always turn things around, no matter your age.

"If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away."
— John Steinbeck, born on this day in 1902, on falling in love in a magnificent letter of advice to his teenage son. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)


Over 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ defeated death.

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.

"You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. -Michael Jordan"

Now my debt is paid,
it is paid in full
by the precious blood
that my Jesus spilled.

Now the curse of death
has no hold on me.
Whom the Son sets free,
Oh, is free indeed
