Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
I hear so many girls talking about the underlying game that’s behind all the interest and attraction of a potential relationship, and this is what I tell them: Love should never be a game, so stop wasting your time and emotions trying to follow unspoken rules when you already know 1) who you are and 2) what you want. Those two things should be enough when it comes to a relationship. And if your authenticity pushes someone away, let them go because if you’re too much for them, they weren’t enough for you.
When someone says, “I haven’t felt God in a long time. I feel like He is gone. He left me.” I would just tell them, “He said He would never leave you nor forsake you. He is as close as the mention of His name. Just believe that. You don’t need to feel Him to know He is with you. Just believe Him. Don’t make God a feeling. He is not a feeling. He’s Spirit and Truth, and He lives in you.”
