WE ARE ALL AS ALONE AS EACH OTHER.
Life is meant for self-discovery and growth. It is your responsibility whether you choose to have those in your life that nourish the path you want to walk (and sometimes not all those in our lives will) and it is also your responsibility to honour that some connections are not always right for you, so the connections and yourself must be honoured enough to be let go of. It is only your responsibility to give to yourself everything that you crave from others.
Your role is to love, accept, nourish, support, look after, respect and cherish yourself.
LET YOURSELF LOVE YOU.
You need to recognise and agree with your soul that you are worthy. Because you are. You’ve simply forgotten it for some time.
Your role is to seek from within yourself what you seek from others. There are many things in this world that we cannot control, so don’t place the power of your own fulfilment into the hands of an impossible suitor – the notion that you will feel happy and fulfilled simply because of the words or actions or looks of others. This will never occur.
Don’t live the same day of your life 80 years over.

Wow this opened my eyes
That’s the idea that gave hope to José Hernández. I want you to think about this story. José’s parents were migrant farm workers. And so, growing up, he was too. He was born in California, though he could have just as easily been born on the other side of the border, if it had been a different time of year, because his family moved around with the seasons. So two of his siblings were actually born in Mexico.
So they traveled a lot, and José joined his parents picking cucumbers and strawberries. And he missed part of school when they returned to Mexico each winter. José didn’t learn English until he was 12 years old. But you know what, José was good at math and he liked math. And the nice thing is that math was the same in every school, and it’s the same in Spanish as it is in English.
So José studied, and he studied hard. And one day, he’s standing in the fields, collecting sugar beets, and he heard on a transistor radio that a man named Franklin Chang-Diaz—a man with a surname like his—was going to be an astronaut for NASA. So José decided—right there in the field, he decided—well, I could be an astronaut, too.
So José kept on studying, and he graduated high school. And he kept on studying, and he earned an engineering degree. And he kept on studying, and he earned a graduate degree. And he kept on working hard, and he ended up at a national laboratory, helping to develop a new kind of digital medical imaging system.
And a few years later, he found himself more than 100 miles above the surface of the Earth, staring out of the window of the shuttle Discovery, and he was remembering the boy in the California fields with that crazy dream that in America everything is possible.
Think about that. That’s the American Dream right there. That’s what we’re fighting for. President Obama on the need for comprehensive immigration reform (via barackobama)
HOW IS THIS THE FIRST TIME I’VE SEEN THIS IT’S ALMOST AT 10 MILLION WTF
Yes let’s do it for him.
Heavenly Father, our creator, our sustainer, in the name of Jesus, please forgive us for our sins, forgive us for our crimes against You and against man. Please Father put us in right standing so we might continue to receive Your Blessings, in Jesus’ name.
Thank You Father for Your Grace, Your…
Anonymous said: What to do to never hear the words from Jesus "Depart from Me, I never knew you". (Matthew)? I'm so afraid, I don't want to be the person whom Jesus say that...
That’s HANDS DOWN the scariest part of the Bible. That there will be people that die and are turned away from God, even though they healed and prophesied and cast out demons in the name of Jesus.
This is the context for the passage. It’s part of the sermon on the mount.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
It’s dangerous to say that obedience isn’t required in Christianity. It’s not enough to just say that He’s Lord. You have to act like it too. If you practice evil with one hand and try to look like you’re doing good with the other, it won’t go well with you. God looks beyond appearances and sees our heart. You can’t just get your ticket to heaven by saying a prayer. You actually have to walk the narrow road. Actually follow Jesus and do what He says.
The answer to your question of how to avoid being a part of that group, is to do the Will of God. How do you know the Will of God? Read scripture and do it. Don’t just be a hearer of the Word, but actually get ‘er done. Practice goodness and kindness and patience. Be thankful in all circumstances and don’t lose your temper. Pray all the time and hide scripture deep inside your heart. Walk humbly with your God and seek justice and love mercy.
