God restores the broken.

(via prayerpartner)

because we were never broken in his sight. The covenant we had with Him was broken. If i break a glass, it may cut me or even consequently kill me, but it can’t break my soul, my humanity, or my existence.

I used to believe I was broken. I greatly comforted knowing that God would fix me up patch me back together. And I believed then that I would never be the whole that I originally was. I believed that there was a defect there to begin with that eventually led to my brokenness. You bet I was comforted. “Then” is such a relative term; My “way back then” was probably 4.273 hours ago.

But in God’s sight, am I really broken? Am I really evil? Am I really good? Or am I just his child? A child that has UNCONDITIONAL EVERLASTING LOVE (unconditional: without limits or boundaries.  everlasting: eternal. love: AGAPE).  I will never comprehend that with my earthly human minds. My longing to understand it feel it beyond a doubt draws me to the foot of the cross.

That’s the way this city lives now — one funeral to another, hiding from bombs and collecting the dead.

Cory Arcangel’s new book is just tweets of people saying they’re working on their novel. This is simultaneously amazing and also forming a deep pit of despair in my gut.

The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.

You don’t need a reason to leave. Wanting to leave is enough. Leaving doesn’t mean you’re incapable of real love or that you’ll never love anyone else again. It means you wish to change the terms of one particular relationship. That’s all. Be brave enough to break your own heart.

Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things

Lately, when I’m on the subway or in a cab or in Starbucks and I start to feel overwhelmed, I open up this book on my iPad and just breathe in a reminder that everything turns out exactly the way it is supposed to, and that sometimes what we think are our weakest moments end up being our strongest.

When the army doesn’t come for you, when no one chooses to fight for you, when no one dives in after you with fairy tales and promises, you write a different story. You write a tale of adventure and chaos, of survival and fortitude, and instead of wishing to be saved, you save yourself.
— Kelton Wright (via itsnevertoolatefornow)
