NOTHING IS REAL ANYMORE I’M SO EXCITED TO MEET THIS MAN
One of the greatest annoyances that I face regularly is people thinking that their thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and perspectives are superior to that of others. This applies especially to Christians. Even if what you are believing is in fact true, that still does not give you a right to think of others as being in the wrong as if you have soaked up more insight from God than anyone else in the world. God is vast. He has no beginning and no end. Even in the fulness of His indwelling in us, our minds are not capable of complete understanding.
Jesus does not give us the right to think we are further along than others. Jesus does not give us the right to an elitist mentality. The only thing we have the right to do as Christians is to love people relentlessly, putting everyone higher than ourselves. We are called to be peace makers. We are called to have a mentality of universal unity grounded in love and peace. Every human being on the face of this planet has something equally amazing to express for the benefit of others. Every person is created equally.
Anonymous asked: I get scared of dreaming about my life when pursuing God's will is most important. It seems irrational, but its because I've been outside of His will before (by sinful choices) and don't trust myself.
Ah, yes. Step one is always to fall passionately in love with Jesus. I believe that we are called to step into the desires that God gave us. If a desire comes from a place of being a son/daughter of the King, I say DREAM BIG! God created us perfectly with perfect desires. Desires that are sinful come from a lack of revelation that we were crucified with Christ, buried with him, risen with him, and seated with him. Its all about stepping into who you are! Your true self is found by letting go of everything outside of perfection. I would encourage you to dream over the top and know that you were created SO PERFECTLY and you don’t have to fight against your flesh because it is dead! I love you and God loves you. No fear! :)
I see myself being an author and moving to NYC. I see myself experiencing the finer things of life, and having a lot of money. I can see myself speaking and creating new systems of thought. I can see myself influencing people and acting as a pastor to many. I can see myself living luxuriously.
I see myself on a mountain side in a foreign land living in the dirt. I see myself homeless and nomadic. I see myself taking in orphans and living minimally. I see myself living on rice and beans with only one dirty t-shirt and a pair of pants. I see myself enduring pain and being exposed to utter hopelessness.
It is so important to take your passions and allow them to manifest as vision. Life is to be lived to the fullest measure of excellence, purpose, and worth. Nothing is beyond reach. We are not called to settle for second best. You have every reason to be excited about what is to come for your life.

I am yours and you are mine; this is what you had in mind.
God’s imprint and image remains on every human being and shines through them regardless of their awareness of it. — Blaise Foret
I didn’t want to do this, but I need to ask for help. I moved to Tennessee as a college drop out with loans to pay off because I strongly believed, and still do, that God wanted me here. I am an arrogant east coaster so moving to the south was the humbling work of the Holy Ghost. I was able to…
Come share some love with my brother, please.
I’m literally spending my Thanksgiving alone hundreds of miles away from my family not eating food and no plans of anything special. Yet I remember that I have a family. I have hopes and dreams and passion. I am happy and satisfied. I have people that love me and people that I love. I have the best friends in the entire world. I get to experience the Divine every day. I get to dive into the supernatural realm all the time. I have fresh air to breathe and clean water to drink from. I have a house to live in. I have a job. I have a car. I have a bed.
So for today, my heart is overflowing.
Love and Happiness -
I’m thankful for much more today in many more ways than I ever have been before.
I’m thankful for my friends at home that are the joys of my life.
I’m thankful for my family that only God could be good enough to give to me.
I’m thankful for water that runs through a tap sometimes.
This is so beautiful and flows from such a sweet place. I could not help but share it. You are so missed and loved, Melissa.
Focus on today. Stop and remember that every breath is precious. Go on a walk through the woods and force yourself into silence. Smile at someone and say something nice. Cherish every moment you are alive.
Let go of the idea that you are superior to others. Remember that people are not to be compared, but celebrated. So even if you disagree with someone, do not think that you know something that they don’t. Rather, confide in love and kindness. Do not come from a place that elevates self over others. Allow your brain, body, and emotions to back down and settle down. Come into a place of complete rest.
There is nothing wrong with loving the crap out of everything. Negative people find their walls. So never apologize for your enthusiasm. Never. Ever. Never. — Ryan Adams (via infinite-paradox)
