“Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.” John 13:14-16
This will be in my wedding!!!
Freedom is waiting when you look outside :)
Most of the times, I feel undeserving of Your blessings. I am not the best child but You have been very good to me. You know my heart will always long for Your presence no matter how much earthly desires I plunge myself into. You show me simplicity and beauty. You make everything worth it. I love You.
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Trials are not reasons to give up, but a challenge to improve ourselves. Not an excuse to back-out, but an inspiration to move forward.
Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
You are teachable.
You can learn how to take photos. You can learn how to play songs on the acoustic guitar. You can learn how to make that five layer cake and it will taste like heaven in your mouth. You can learn how to draw much more than stick figures. You can learn how to drive stick shift. You can learn how to write anything. Your words don’t have a limit. Your mind doesn’t have a lock. You are teachable. You can still learn. You can learn and understand all the things you want to if you will do one very important thing.
Try. Try more than once. Try with patience. Try with freedom. Try with gentleness. Try with faith. Try with curiosity. Try and make those mistakes you dread so much. Mistakes are stepping stones love not potholes.
It’s okay to mess up. It’s okay to fail and fail and FAIL. It’s okay to suck. It’s okay to take longer than others to figure out how it works. It’s okay to ask for help. It’s okay to change it to suit your way of learning. It’s okay to stumble, and fall. It’s okay to be scared. It’s okay to be nervous. It’s okay to feel what you feel when you stand before the unknown and the uncertainty creeps in. Trial and error my dear are some of life’s greatest teachers.
You can still learn things. You can still walk down new paths. You could even build one if need be.
You don’t have forever but you do have today. And today is as good as any day to start learning about what you are passionate and curious about. Today is a day you could nourish a dream, heal a scar, express a hope, build a door of possibility…
You are teachable. You can still learn things. Try…
And as you try and learn let others know they are teachable too.
Sometimes I think Jesus whispers to us, “You have to let yourself be loved.”
Here is how I knew you were not the one for me:
When I peeled off my layers and handed myself to you,
you said: that’s all?
When I offered him, with my head down, my badly
bruised heart, he looked at me with wide eyes and
gasped: for me?
