    The thing we must remember is that when we romanticize the call of Christ, we often times will end up like Peter, walking out upon the water; but then the sea becomes a reality and it frightens us and causes us to start sinking. It is in those moments of fear that we must have the courage to remember the first time we heard the call of Christ, that we asked for this, we sang our songs to God to take us where our faith will be tested. The great hope of the Christian is this; that Christ will always be faithful in responding to our cries for help.

    Be mindful that the call to glorify Christ is not a road full of daisies, sometimes you encounter waves bigger than you realized, but know that you are always within the reach of Jesus; that no storm can mute your voice from His ears.

    The Christian life is one that calls all men to die, so be fully aware of what that truly means; because you will be terrified when faced with the full weight of that most holy calling.

    If God is not real, why does He offend you so much? You say our God is as real as the tooth fairy, yet you do not see me slandering the tooth fairy and getting upset whenever someone even mentions them.

    If you truly do not believe in God, He should not be so offensive to you. 

    The realest thing ever.

    Whoa.

    "I had a child when I was sixteen. I got kicked out of high school because of all the absences. My family and community pretty much wrote me off. But right away I got a job at a sporting goods store. Soon I was able to get a job as a receptionist at a tax company, and they gave me enough responsibilities that I learned how to do taxes. Eventually I learned enough to become an associate. Then I got offered a job at a smaller company, and even though it was a pay cut, they offered me responsibility over all the books— accounts payable, accounts receivable, everything. It was less money but I wanted that experience so I took the risk. And I’m so glad I did, because six months later, the controller of that company left and I was given that position. They told me they couldn’t officially call me the controller because I didn’t have a college degree. So I finished my degree 5 months ago— just to make it official! So after having a child at sixteen, I made it all the way to controller of a company, without even having a college degree. Can you believe that? Honestly, I’ve been waiting to tell that story so long that I told it to a customer service representative on the phone last week. She was nice about it and pretended to care."

    This woman is a living example of how to not let your circumstances hold you back. This is so possible and so real. She is awesome.
