Love Never Fails

It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these things. A lot has happened and I’ve learned a ton through all of it. I learned not to take life for granted - yours or anyone else’s. Life is short. You are not promised that you will live through tomorrow. Laugh a lot. Take pictures all the time. Enjoy the time you have with those you love. Embrace challenge and change. Don’t run from your fears; face them. Hug often. Love everyone. As hard as it is, when you love them, tell them. You never know when someone will be taken from you. Sometimes we think, “They still have so long to live; they’re so young.” But that’s not always the case. A lot of people are using “YOLO” to go out and get wasted. But, “YOLO” is true. You have one life to live, so make it worthwhile. Don’t go out and do stupid things; make a name for yourself – a good name. Don’t be afraid to dream – and dream big – bigger than ever before. Sing your way through the hard times and dance your way through the harder ones.

I can’t tell you why bad things happen to good people. But I can tell you that my God has a reason for all of it. I don’t know why people have to suffer before they leave this earth rather than just leaving in peace. I don’t know why sometimes things seem to look up and then drastically fall downhill. All I know is that there is a Creator who took the time to give you life. So live it to the fullest and don’t be afraid to fall. Get back up; and keep on living.

A Random Thought

I don't know why things happen, but I know they happen for a reason. I don't understand everything that happens, but I know there is a reason for these situations. I don't know why bad things happen to good people or why people's lives are taken at young ages, but what I do know is that everything has a reason. A friend of mine recently said, "It's all for a purpose." So if you're hurting, mourning or broken, it's all for a purpose. There's a reason for everything - though we may never know the reason.

Take It As You Will

Your past is your past so leave it behind you.
You don't have to beat yourself up; Jesus was beat for you.
You don't have to cut yourself because you can't stand who you were or are or what you've done or what you're doing; Jesus was cut for you.
You don't have to look in the mirror and feel guilty; Jesus felt your guilt.
You don't have to cry yourself to sleep night after night because of your imperfections; Jesus wept.
You don't have to be ashamed of yourself; Jesus is never ashamed of you.
You don't have to be trapped in your past; Jesus isn't trapped in the grave.
