um. yeah i'll go read a book



Um, yeah. I think I'll just go read a book now.

~

live by faith, not fear
when you say stupid things
or wish you'd done something different,
there's no point worrying about it.
give it to God. 
he'll open your eyes
and you'll see
what really matters,
what's actually important
and that being is good.

and know that it's all okay. take a deep breath, and clear your head by going outside or running or praying with your heart and your mouth and i say, Jesus, You are my Lord.

.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;

    do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
    and he will show you which path to take.

  2. Thank you so much for writing this. All my life I've felt like I had to be perfect. I mean I obviously understand that I'm a sinner and all but I feel like I need to be the perfect friend, the perfect sister, the perfect daughter, the perfect pk, the perfect Christian. I didn't realize it but it has been controlling me. I wouldn't do some things because I didn't want others to judge me and change their opinion of me. I had to look perfect, I guess. So I've started messing up big time, blowing up, just plain failing. Failing so bad and falling flat on my face. Every time it happe Ed I would tell myself that this was the last time, I would be good from now on. But it was never the last. I keep on messing up. And it terrifys and discourage me. Since I try to be perfect I take failure much harder then some people. Today I realized that I need to stop putting on a face of the perfect person. I won't always be perfect and I will fail and people will see that bit it's ok. They need to see me who I really am- a broken mess who is trying to do her best. It's amazing the freedom that comes when you, as you wrote, can give it all to God. I a going to try to live my life in a new way... A way of following god, messing u, and getting back up. I don't need to try to be perfect anymore.

    I love what you wrote I that last bit... It reminds me that god is all I need. It's worth repeating.. I am going to mess up and fail but it's ok cause God will always be there and I will always be his. Thank you so so much for writing this. Thank you forc all the encouragement on this blog. Thank you God for letting me read this and for showing me that it is all going to be ok. And if there are any other girls out there who struggle with this, then please give up he facade and live your life as it is. Live it for God and it will all be ok. <3
