The man defines the beard

Anonymous asked: My boyfriend and I recently broke up, and I am having a very difficult time dealing with it. It was the first relationship I've had where he seemed to want me as much as I wanted him. So when He suddenly wanted to end it, it broke me. I stumbled on some of your quotes and was amazed at how much they spoke to me. I am an INFJ and often feel really misunderstood and sometimes think I feel things too intensely. Your words on God, relationships, etc, have helped me to not feel so hopeless. Thank you

I am sorry to hear about the break up, but I am glad that God is speaking to you in this time of pain. Continue, dear heart, to let Christ slip through the cracks of your broken heart, so that you may understand the goodness and love of Christ. He is faithful, even when we are not, He is loving, even when we are not, and He is always present, even when we are not. Hang in there, and know that it’s okay to feel the things you do, even if it is painful, because that is how you are designed, and to turn those emotions off would be to deny what you are capable of. The world needs people who feel deeply, because we are all losing touch of what it means to love deeply, so reach out to God and let Him fill those longings and restore your weary soul.

You are most loved.

This is literally how I feel sometimes. Todd! You so influential.

You are so sweet.

Sometimes we need to remember why we love God, and let that realization wash over us all over again. God is romancing us, and sometimes we forget that, so we lose touch of the great Love of our lives. Let His love restore you, because you’ve been trying to swim on your own, and Christ has called you to walk on the waters. Remember why you chose to follow Him, and when you do, let that truth set you on fire.

I refuse to have a faith that idolizes earthly marriage as more important than being sanctified.

I refuse to have a faith that makes single people feel useless, when Christ has called us all to be active now.

I refuse to have a faith that says my purpose happens down the road, when it should be happening now.

I refuse to believe the lies that God only wants people who have an audience, and that He only chooses certain people.

I refuse to believe any of that, because my faith is based on a God who said “Follow me.” and so I’m gonna follow Him, and be sanctified in that pursuit.

The words you say carry more weight than you know, and to some, they may weigh more than they can handle. Be kind, speak with purpose and clarity, always with the intent to help those around you grow. If you do say words that are hurtful, be quick to use words that heal, and in doing this you will find that you are being more and more like Christ; speaking truth in love.

I may not be happy where I am, but as long as you’re smiling, I would be content with a heavy soul.
