|Hello I'm Leslie|

Psalms 51:10;

In love with my Savior. Daily learning and growing through His love and grace. CA living. Adventure seeking heart.

"I have learned…that the Lord can fill the soul with Himself, when He takes away what seemed indispensable to our happiness on earth."

Andrew Bonar  (via craigtowens)

"I don’t want an idea of someone, I’m too weary for masks and false versions of people. I want a love that is filled with hope of growth, a love that says “I’m here, and I’m staying.” and I don’t know if I’ll ever hear that. I just want to be brave for that love, to risk the pain it might bring, so that I can experience the good that it could be. I just want a love that is true; should I not seek any less than that? Let me never offer anything less than a heart that is humble and ready to serve. Let me be the love that I seek, so that I can know what it means to love at all, and grow in that promise."

"The words you say carry more weight than you know, and to some, they may weigh more than they can handle. Be kind, speak with purpose and clarity, always with the intent to help those around you grow. If you do say words that are hurtful, be quick to use words that heal, and in doing this you will find that you are being more and more like Christ; speaking truth in love."

"

I refuse to have a faith that idolizes earthly marriage as more important than being sanctified.

I refuse to have a faith that makes single people feel useless, when Christ has called us all to be active now.

I refuse to have a faith that says my purpose happens down the road, when it should be happening now.

I refuse to believe the lies that God only wants people who have an audience, and that He only chooses certain people.

I refuse to believe any of that, because my faith is based on a God who said “Follow me.” and so I’m gonna follow Him, and be sanctified in that pursuit.

"Don’t ever apologize for being honest and open and vulnerable or for allowing yourself to let love in no matter how painful it’s been in the past. It’s a beautiful thing to still believe in love in such a harsh and cruel world. So don’t ever feel ashamed of loving and feeling emotions deeply. You are not weak or dumb, you are the brave one."

"Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man… It is the comparison that makes you proud: the pleasure of being above the rest. Once the element of competition is gone, pride is gone."

We don’t always understand God’s methods. His ways don’t always make sense to us, but we have to realize that God sees the big picture. Consider this possibility: You may be ready for what God has for you, but somebody else who is going to be involved is not ready yet. God has to do a work in another person or another situation before your prayer can be answered according to God’s will for your life. All the pieces have to come together for it to be God’s perfect time.

But never fear; God is getting everything lined up in your life. You may not feel it; you may not see it. Your situation may look just like it did for the past ten years, but then one day, in a split second of time, God will bring it all together. When it is God’s timing, all the forces of darkness can’t stop Him. When it’s your due season, God will bring it to pass.

You must learn to trust God’s timing. You can be sure that right now, God is arranging all the pieces to come together to work out His plan for your life. He has been working in your favor long before you encountered the problem. Don’t grow impatient and try to force doors open. Don’t try to make things happen in your own strength. The answer will come, and it will be right on time.

I really do like it when people tell me about themselves. It doesn’t matter what, it can be about their day, what they did that they found amazing, what their hobbies are, etc. I like knowing about people, in a way, it makes me feel like they trust me. You’re not bothering me with your rambling, I actually prefer to listen.
