Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
– Emily Dickinson (via observando)
He who grows in grace remembers that he is but dust, and he therefore does not expect his fellow Christians to be anything more. He overlooks ten thousand of their faults, because he knows his God overlooks twenty thousand in his own case. He does not expect perfection in the creature, and, therefore, he is not disappointed when he does not find it.
– Charles H. Spurgeon (via hannahcompton)

Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others…By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.
– Gordon B. Hinckley (via observando)
I must learn to be content with being happier than I deserve.

The world’s greatest achievers have been those who have always stayed focussed on their goals and have been consistent in their efforts.

What were we made for? To know God. What aim should we have in life? To know God. What is the best thing in life? To know God.

(via jesus-christ-is-king)

Dozens of people go to [God] to be cured of some one particular sin which they are ashamed of (like masturbation or physical cowardice) or which is obviously spoiling daily life (like bad temper or drunkenness). Well, He will cure it alright: but He will not stop there. That may be all you ask; but if once you call Him in, He will give you the full treatment. That is why He warned people to ‘count the cost’ before becoming Christians. ‘Make no mistake,’ He says, ‘If you let me, I will make you perfect. The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you are in for. Nothing less or other than that.’

You want to be heroic? Don’t give up on your friends when it becomes hard to talk to them.

You want to be brave? Talk about important things even if starting the conversation is awkward.

You want to be awesome? Spend more time blessing other people than you do enjoying life for yourself.

Real heroes are more concerned about the folks in distress than they are about their own comfort and safety.

don’t cross oceans for people who wouldn’t cross a puddle for you.

No, do it. Do cross oceans for people. Love people, all people. No conditions attached, no wondering wether or not they’re worthy. Cross oceans, climb mountains. Life and love isn’t about what you gain, it’s about what you give.
