Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.

I want to start off this post by stating three things:
1) There is nothing you can do that could keep God from loving you.
2) You are always welcome inside the House of God (Church).
3) Everyone is just as broken as you are, even if they don’t admit it.
I get this overwhelming feeling that half the reason many people don’t attend church is because they don’t feel worthy enough to go. It’s almost as if they feel they need to look, act, and be a certain way before stepping foot into a place of worship. But the last time I checked, God didn’t come for the healthy, but THE SICK (Mark 2:17).
I feel that there is an epidemic of self righteousness screaming across the nation, obstructing and preventing those who actually need the reclamation of God most. We talk about being a church of ACCEPTANCE and HUMBLENESS, but how many people step foot into a church, never to return because they feel they are not “good enough” by someones standards other than Gods.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying we should water down any teaching, or ignore peoples sinful nature. But what I do think we should do is emphasize on the fact that we all started somewhere. And just because someones downfall is something we’ve never personally experienced, does NOT mean they don’t deserve the same amount of LOVE and GRACE that we once received. Let us be advocates to the veracity of TRANSPARENCY, and the fact that we are ALL BROKEN and in need of a savior.
Your baggage and burdens are beautiful in the eyes of God. For He can turn baggage into beauty.

You can go through life and make new friends every year - every month practically - but there was never any substitute for those friendships of childhood that survive into adult years. Those are the ones in which we are bound to one another with hoops of steel.

This is how it works. I love the people in my life, and I do for my friends whatever they need me to do for them, again and again, as many times as is necessary. For example, in your case you always forgot who you are and how much you’re loved. So what I do for you as your friend is remind you who you are and tell you how much I love you. And this isn’t any kind of burden for me, because I love who you are very much. Every time I remind you, I get to remember with you, which is my pleasure.

We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.

I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.

A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.

How small a porton of our life it is that we really enjoy. In youth we are looking forward to things that are to come; in old age, we are looking backwards to things that are gone past; in manhood, although we appear indeed to be more occupied in things that are present, yet even that is too often absorbed in vague determinations to be vastly happy on some future day, when we have time.
