“I’d imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn’t be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason too.”—Hugo via Britnee Morse
“Jealousy grows out of a longing to be considered, remembered, included. Jealousy is cultivated by a desire for permanence, security, and abiding relationships. Jealousy is vulnerable to loss, winces at betrayal, and hates unfaithfulness. The roots of jealousy reveal the holy longing for relationships that God has written in our hearts.”—Sharon Hersh
Abundant. Full to overflowing. Great and exceeding. Ever-increasing.
Have you been insulted, rejected, unjustly accused? My Son was called a gluttonous man, a simpleton, a drunk and a fraud. My servants have been called cannibals and rebels; they’ve been sold as slaves, raped and sawn in pieces. My Son has demonstrated holy, perfect power, the capacity of My heart and soul, by not demanding His human rights, not seeking to save his life, and my servants can know this conquering power. The world asks only for your right cheek and you may give it grudgingly, but I demand the left as well. Then you will shine…”
“Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.”
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, ”therefore I will hope in him.”
