I have given God countless reasons not to love me. None of them has been strong enough to change Him.

Title: Beautiful Eulogy Artist: Beautiful Eulogy 729 plays
If it pleases my Lord, and only by your grace, use my life until it’s poured out for your sake 
Until then I’ll remain where you have me, with joy when I feel unhappy
And a peace that surpasses all my understanding
My life is in the hands of your love everlasting

I’m not there yet, so I’m reaching, reaching for a goal: to stand before my king and be speechless. Then never again will I question if this grace is sufficient to cover my sin, ‘cause death is gone and all the effects of the evil and wrong will be conquered when His kingdom comes…If it pleases my Lord, and only by Your grace, use my life ‘til it’s poured out for your sake…My life is in the hands of Your love everlasting.

Give me the faith to believe what You say, and trust in Your Word when I’m tempted to stray.

Beautiful Eulogy- Release Me From This Snare (via crosspreacher)

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
may set her free.
Teach her to fight her way out,
to consume books and spit knowledge
to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
and nothing more.

Teach her to love her body
not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
as a defined worth
she shall be immeasurable
she shall be more than this.

Do not let her break herself down
when the boy in kindergarden hits her
because he likes her.
What are you really teaching her?
Pain and love are not synonymous
neither are pretty and perfection.

Teach her to be kind
to be harsh
to be demure
to be wild
to be sensitive
to be thick-skinned

But good god,

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’
