The dream a just had started off to be a bit of a nightmare. This is how it went; before me was a book. On one page it said light and on the opposite page, dark, the light page being bright and beautiful decorated with flowers, and the dark page being a streaky black with two red eyes in the middle. For whatever reason I touched the dark page. Immediately my surroundings were consumed with darkness and creepy images of creatures and things. The appearances of the people around me began to alter, their eyes beginning to drip with blackness, all staring right at me. I had a friend in the dream who I’ve never met in real life and it seemed like to me that they became possessed. His eyes stayed black while everyone else had returned to normal. Throughout the dream surreal things would happen (like in any dream) but this had a bad vibe to it. My friend would lash out and do all these weird things that I can’t really explain & he was tormenting me. I remember feeling scared in my dream & finally I was fed up. I remember wanting to wake up, I knew it was a dream but I was still scared, I just wanted it to be over. Finally I looked at him dead on and shouted “Stop it! God has already beat you, so you’re wasting your time.” Slowly his eyes began to regain its original appearance & he looked bewildered. Everyone around me began to agree & say things like “God is good” and what not. I said ” God is already victorious so just leave! God has already won!” I said this over and over until my friend appeared to be normal again. The dream continued and nothing strange happened anymore and I felt a huge sense of relief and happiness. I thought I was going to wake up afraid and worried, but because God is victorious I’ve woken up full of happiness and nothing but love for God. Just thought I should share :) have a blessed Sunday !
“I want you to tell me about every person you’ve ever been in love with. Tell me why you loved them, then tell me why they loved you. Tell me about a day in your life you didn’t think you’d live through. Tell me what the word “home” means to you and tell me in a way that I’ll know your mothers name just by the way you describe your bed room when you were 8. See, I wanna know the first time you felt the weight of hate and if that day still trembles beneath your bones.”—Andrea Gibson (via bornreadygeneration)

Well you are the one, the one that lies close to me Whispers “Hello, I’ve missed you quite terribly” I fell in love, in love with you suddenly Now there’s no place else I could be, but here in your arms
Is it bad that I’m not content enough with life that I want more excitement ? I have so much to be thankful for and I’m truly blessed yet I want more. Is that considered greed? Or even selfishness ? I’m longing for something amazing to happen and yet I realize that just being able to wake up to…
I was going through this same predicament before Steubenville, actually, and since then have learned a couple things. Since then, I’ve made it a point to really open my eyes more to the graces of God that constantly surround us and constantly reveal themselves to us, but are too blinded and jaded by the hustle and bustle of our lives. Though we might feel like we see all the things we’re blessed with, I feel like we only focus on the most obvious things like material possessions, certain people that we love, or joyous occasions. It’s in all the little things that really get me MORE excited and more overwhelmed with joy than the big things, because there are SO MANY little things that surround us that it’s almost overwhelming, yet so BEAUTIFUL to realize.
The other means of alleviating this need for more, was to work with the cards that already have been dealt. I knew that there was so much more love that I had to offer to the people that are in my life currently and I knew that there is still so much work to be done on this path to Christ, so instead of searching for new outlets, I just upped the ante for everyone and everything that already exists in my life. LOVED HARDER, invested more in the friendships and relationships that already existed, prayed more, got more involved in ministry, just be MORE of an example of Christ’s love for us to everyone that I was already encountering.
Amazingness is already at your fingertips, it’s just now up to you to grasp it. If you truly believe that “the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand” then make your existing world that now. It’s up to you to up the ante and just intensify your own amazingness in every aspect of your life, especially your FAITH, because that is what will bring you your everlasting supply of happiness and joy, and enough excitement to last “to infinity and beyond”.
Sara, I know that you’ve made the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth alive for so many people already, I only reply in this manner because I want you to have that same feeling of beauty on this Earth that you constantly bring to the people you come across. Adventure is out there, but it’s not as far away as you think…
