For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.
Exodus 14:14 (via ocean-chasing)
This was the first, honest, bible verse I took the time to memorize. Albeit short — I truly believe God knew I needed to remember this. Always, through everything. The battle has already been won.(via mdenise10)
A woman who fears the Lord will not run away from God to satisfy her longings and relieve her anxieties. She will wait for the Lord. She will hope in God. She will stay close to the heart of God and trust in his promises. The prospect of departing into the way of sin will be too fearful to pursue; and the benefits of abiding in the shadow of the Almighty too glorious to forsake.
John Piper (via hecallsme-peacemaker)
