This is a poem by Andrea Gibson about the thousands of LGBTQ who have been tortured, attacked and murdered called “Ashes”…I’m shaking. Christians, I beg you to live this scripture, because the world will know God by HOW WE LOVE, not by how we condemn… 1 John 4:7 “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.”
This video has helped me so much! Prayer is relational. :) So important!
I LOVE this new song by Hillsong!
The Worldly Hope men set their Hearts upon
Turns Ashes-or it prospers; and anon,
Like Snow upon the Desert’s dusty Face,
Lighting a little hour or two-is gone.
“Don’t drag my past into my new marriage (referring my my mom and my siblings and I). You need to trust God, not your own ideas of what love is. You need to learn how to love your father.”

shaketheduust asked: Hey there! (: So I saw one of your posts and it was like reading a post I made. I am currently debating on a double major in spanish and nursing or nursing and spanish minor as well. I want to be a obstetrical gynecologic nurse practitioner and hope to work in South America. I studied abroad in Ecuador last year and I hope to move back once I finish college. Just wanted to share and we can question our major choices while knowing someone else is questioning the same thing!
Hello! That’s really encouraging to me because everyone is telling me I can’t do it! Even my advisor gave me a look. haha I’m just like, “Prove it!” ;) I decided to go for the double major. Here at the University of Kentucky the minor requires so much, it’d be a waste if I didn’t just go for the degree as well. That’s amazing that you studied abroad! I’m studying abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico for the upcoming academic year! I’m so excited! Do you have any advice about studying abroad!? Thanks for the encouragement! Good luck with your choices!
God, I pray for those that are hurting. God, guide us by Your Holy Spirit to love them with everything we have and everything You are. The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but YOU have come to GIVE life! And I’m so humbled that You’ve given it to me. God, I cry out to You. Heal those that have lost all hope and strength. YOU are our only HOPE. I love You so much Father, but I only know love, because You first loved me. God, if people just knew Your love, Your presence for one minute they would be forever transformed. They would be saved. God, FILL this place with Your Spirit, that people would be saved! I pray in Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen
He tortured and cursed me and wished I was dead,
And I still had the faith that he’d learn.
I pray and I cry and I offer my hand,
And he rips open my heart yet again…
The good news is that my faith and love for God, the Healer is stronger than what I feel! I rejoice in the Hope that I have found in Christ Jesus. “weeping may remain for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5b
This morning my father told me through a text message that God had led him to remarry and that last week he married this Romanian woman I’ve never met a week after the divorce of my parents was finalized. He had been dating her for months before the divorce. Yesterday he took two of my siblings with him to Chicago to meet up with his new wife and to take her back home with him. I now have a stepmother and a stepbrother (her 12 year old son from her previous marriage) and all I know about them is their ages, names and I’ve seen one picture. I swear my life could be a Hollywood movie. He also sent me a picture of him with a bouquet of flowers for the wife he’s madly in love with. When I read the message I was so shocked. I thought I was hallucinating and it took me a while to take in. I had been having nightmares about this for a while. I couldn’t believe it actually happened. I experienced every emotion possible today. Thanks to friends, the Body of Christ and my mother, my mother and I are hopeful. We worshiped and prayed and read scripture. God is our rock and our salvation. He is our only hope. I’m so thankful that He is with me. You can pray for us. Thanks!
THIS IS AMAZING! I was shaking while watching this. Brave New Voices Poet
