Life is too fascinating, too mesmerizing, too complicated, too beautiful, too poignant, too short, too intricate & too wonderful to ever let yourself be bored.
"It’s like, it doesn’t honor God to pretend like everything is okay. That’s the beauty of Jesus that so many people miss. The beauty is that He died on the cross for our sins, but also that He existed the way we exist. He understands what it’s like to lose a friend. He’s not unfamiliar with those emotions. He’s not unfamiliar with the difficulty of human life. To me that’s what makes Jesus as God beautiful. He totally understands. He went out of His way to prove to us that He understands our situation. So when He has something to say, it’s not coming from this high and lofty standpoint. It’s coming from this person who understands intricately the perils of human existence."

"But the point is this: It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique… It’s not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right, your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound re-invention."

"We get angry when we do not understand yet we do not take time to understand.The world takes anger as strength but true strength comes from restraining yourself from doing something selfish.Anger is selfish and self-directed."
