"

We don’t have to despair about things in our lives so much that we would rather die than live because we are hurting so much and see no hope.

Jesus says, ‘I have the power to heal you, restore the brokenness, redeem what seems lost; I see value in you, I see treasure hidden in your heart that can bless people. You are a unique gift in the way you are made, and you have worth. I created you for good things. I will wash all this away, I will set you free, and I will lead you to new things. I can give you true joy. I know your heart and I can satisfy every longing inside it. You will never be alone, you will never be abandoned, and I will protect you.”

You may feel like you’re in the fire today. The heat is being turned up. Everything is coming against you. Let me encourage you, it’s because there’s something great in store. When the heat gets turned up, it means you’re close to your breakthrough. Remember, God is with you when you’re going through the fire. If you will stay in faith, He will do for you what He did for them. He’ll bring you through the fire—without even smelling like smoke—into the place of victory He has prepared for you!

Should probably update the testimony link on my tumblr soon. Still says I’m 19! Plus, what God has recently been doing in my life is worth sharing, too!

today, my school hosted an exhibit for suicide awareness day. the exhibit included 1,100 backpacks in representation of the number of lives that are lost to mental illness each year on college campuses. many of these backpacks were donated by the families that lost loved ones and had their stories attached. i’m so proud of my school for bringing attention to such a serious issue.

"There is something inherently valuable about being a misfit. It’s not to say that every person who has artistic talent was a social outcast, but there is definitely a value for identifying yourself differently and being proud that you are different."
