if this isn’t the kind of marriage you’re hoping for in the future… you’re doing it wrong :P
so.. as for my future relationship..
my future husband and I will do devotions together in our jammies, with tea in the morning.. and then we’ll make homemade pancakes with chocolate chips.. and then go get ready and go on walks and visit cool places and take cute selfies of all the fun things we see and places we go.. we’ll joke and sing together and praise God for all His fabulous creations and insane blessings.. <3 the end! .....

Lord, I lay it all at Your feet. what’s out of my control is completely in Yours.
"My heart will sing no other name, Jesus"
graciouslysaved: Well, I don’t know about y’all, but this isn’t true for me. My heart sings a lot of other names. Temptation is lurking everywhere. We must rest in Truth and turn to Him in times of temptation. I can’t wait until the day my heart sings no other names. Oh, that Christ would return!

Everything in me longs for more of You… For the peace...

things to do to keep your mind off crap..
a little while ago, God brought my entire life to a halt and has been working on many areas of my life, specifically my mind. I’ve come to a point where I’m in the process of LITERALLY changing everything I think on a daily basis; garbage in… garbage out. it’s scarily accurate. so, as I work to refocus myself on God and pure, simple thoughts and an anxiety-free mind, I...
