Dear Friend

Some days are going to be hard, its ok.

Some days you will feel weak, accept it.

Sometimes you’ll feel less than beautiful, know that you are a work of art.

Words can cut so deep, remember you are not defined by those hurtful voices.

Painful memories can resurface, remember you are loved and held by a God who restores.

Keep hold of hope, better things are yet to come.

Never forget how much the world needs you.

You are ok just the way you are.

Pursuing Innocence

I want to be innocent.

Not naive, not stupid to the dangers and evils of this world.

Not gullible or easily fooled.

But like verse Matthew 10:16 says “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.

I want to keep my eyes from things that defile me.

To fight to keep my mind, thoughts and body pure.

To pursue innocence and purity means I will be called ignorant, I will be laughed at, mocked.

But that’s ok.

My innocence has and will be damaged, because of the world we live in, but I KNOW God’s love and forgiveness restores what is lost or stolen.

So join me, my friend, no matter who you are, no matter what has happened in your life, God wants you to know pure sweet innocence.
