"I don’t want to find myself chasing someone that isn’t
chasing Jesus. Find someone kingdom minded."
"Can I say something to young ladies here? I’m trying to pick my words carefully here. Your husband, whoever he is, single ladies, will have an unbelievable amount of influence over your sons and daughters in regards to spiritual things. If you want your children to love Jesus deeply, hold out for a man that is Godly. And let me tell you this: I am well aware that Godly men are rare. Lots of neat Christian boys, not a lot of Godly men. And we’re working our tails off for you to try to develop some into that. But don’t settle, because it’s better that you be lonely now than you be married and lonely later. Are you tracking with me? It is better that you be lonely now than for you to get married to a man that will teach your kids everything but the way of Jesus."

so, so important.

"Be still awhile and let God love you. For just a moment, don’t think about methods, or achievements, or past mistakes. Let God heal your heart, soothe your worries, and be your rock. Seek to utterly depend on Him."

"Serving God is not a waste of time. It is a privilege."
"Sin tries to convince us that Christ remembers every mistake we make; Grace tells us that Christ remembers every tear we shed.
The reality is that Jesus will wipe away both."

"The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise…" (2 Peter 3:9, NIV).
Do you realize that as a believer in Jesus, you have a tremendous advantage in life? The Creator of the Universe is not only fighting your battles, but He is lining up the right people, the right breaks, and the right opportunities to move you forward. You may be facing a situation right now that looks like it’s never going to turn around, but I believe that you’re going to see some changes quicker than you think. You’re going to come out of debt quicker than you think. You’re going to accomplish your goals much quicker than you think. That relationship is going to be restored quicker than you think!
Remember, God is not slow in keeping His promise. I believe we are entering into a decade where we’re going to see the hand of God move like never before. He is going to open up doors that no man can shut. He is going to turn impossible situations around and take you places that you never dreamed. It’s time to get ready for more of God’s favor because that breakthrough is going to happen quicker than you think!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, thank You for being faithful to Your Word. I trust that You will complete the work You’ve begun in me. Help me keep

Jesus said ask anything in my name and it will be done as you’ve asked. But here is the issue, whenever you want what you’re praying for more than you want who you’re praying to, you’re no longer praying in his name. You’re praying in your own.

"Loving someone is a process. Whether that’s God, or that’s another sticky human, it’s a process. The movies will say it’s something different but— no matter how instant that first draw to someone is— love is a building process. It’s doors unlocking. It’s windows breaking. It’s the discovery of new rooms inside of yourself. It’s the dark. And it’s the light. And it’s dark and light all scrambled into one. At the root of it, it’s a slow, trusting, building process that starts with letting someone in."
