"Sometimes, I sit alone under the stars and think of the galaxies inside my heart, and truly wonder if anyone will ever want to make sense of all that I am."
- Christopher Poindexter (via quotethat)
James R. Eads's paintings are beautifully inspire by Van Gogh, one big difference though is that these are digital paintings, which you can buy if you wish in his shop!

"Within this Christian vision for marriage, here’s what it means to fall in love. It is to look at another person and get a glimpse of the person God is creating, and to say, “I see who God is making you, and it excites me! I want to be part of that. I want to partner with you and God in the journey you are taking to his throne. And when we get there, I will look at your magnificence and say, ‘I always knew you could be like this. I got glimpses of it on earth, but now look at you!’” Each spouse should see the great thing that Jesus is doing in the life of their mate through the Word, the gospel. Each spouse then should give him- or herself to be a vehicle for that work and envision the day that you will stand together before God, seeing each other presented in spotless beauty and glory."

"My flesh hates prayer more than Bible study because Bible study can actually be used for my glory. I can know more than others. I can speak better than others. If I study well, i can speak in conferences. But no one will know about my life of prayer. I will gain nothing from men but I will gain much from God."

As Christians we are called to be like Lucy to the world; to step out in faith through a wardrobe and open our eyes to the Kingdom of God. To defend what we’ve seen and heard, though everyone around us, even our own families, think we are liars or lunatics. To stand by the lamppost and point to the wonders and joys of the gospel, to paint a picture with our words and deeds of the glorious love of Jesus.
Every day I want to be someone’s Lucy.
