i knew going to the madrid game would’ve been a bust… ronaldo, casillas, kroot, di maria, benzema aren’t even gonna be there…

Christ did not die to forgive sinners who go on treasuring anything above seeing and savoring God. And people who would be happy in heaven if Christ were not there, will not be there. The gospel is not a way to get people to heaven; it is a way to get people to God. It’s a way of overcoming every obstacle to everlasting joy in God. If we don’t want God above all things, we have not been converted by the gospel.
John Piper
If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they’re not values: they’re hobbies.
Jon Stewart

there’s few things i despise more in this world than stingy Chipotle workers.

My goal is God Himself, not joy nor peace, Nor even blessing, but Himself, my God.

Am I measuring my life by this standard or by something less?

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

tell ‘em that i just don’t know

Who compares to You? Who set the stars in their place?

You who calm the raging seas that came crashing over me!
