20years old and young in heart. Learning to become the woman God intends me to be. Walking in the grace of Him daily. "I must decrease, so that He may increase" John 3:30.


Dear heart, be still. The one who breathed stars into existence and knows each one by name holds you in His hands.

(via findingjoyinjesus)

I want you to hold my hand while we grocery shop. I want you to play with my hair while we watch our favorite tv shows. I want you to kiss me in the middle of my sentence because you wanted to taste my words. I want you to rub my back as we fall asleep. I want you to play my favorite song when I look sad. I want you to do these things without having to think about them. Do them because you love me.

Satan tells me I am unworthy; but I always was unworthy, and yet You have long loved me; and therefore my unworthiness cannot be a barrier to having fellowship with You now.

The fact is, I need God to help me love God. And if I need His help to love Him, a perfect being, I definitely need His help to love other, fault-filled humans.

every word you say to me is full of love and beauty and freedom for me to be who I am. to compile them all would be the most precious book.


while working, i found old stories on a harddrive that i wrote when i was really little. they are heartbreaking, and beautiful, and sad, and so so telling of who i was. finding your heart’s dreams as a child is one of the most moving things, because i am different but i am the same and i am understanding so much more about how i was made.
