"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be the blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king. "

- J.R.R. Tolkien
Hey hey hey

Happy Good Friday! :)

I just want to say that I have a loootttt of stuff that I want to blog about. And a lot of stuff I'm learning. And a lot of stuff I need to work on. I just.... need to make time to write it all down.

But yeah, I'm still here!

Jesus is so much better.

Jesus is so much better than any dirty joke.
Jesus is so much better than any TV Show.
Jesus is so much better than any love story I could watch/read/conjure up.
Jesus is so much better than any boy.
Jesus is so much better than sarcasm.
Jesus is so much better than curse words.
Jesus is so much better than a religion.
Jesus is so much better than Church on Sunday.
Jesus is so much better than the most inspirational celebrity.
Jesus is so much better than the most 'good' person.
Jesus is so much better than Facebook.
Jesus is so much better than any career.
Jesus is so much better than partying.
Jesus is so much better than drugs or alcohol.
Jesus is so much better than the media.

Jesus is so much better.

This is so hard to learn.

Jesus is the only good in me.

I am realizing that more and more. I am a horrible friend. I have minimal talent. I am bitter. I get frustrated easily. I am not extremely intelligent.

But through Jesus I am called beautiful, a daughter of the King, the Bride of Christ, forgiven, set free, loved. And I am able to love, forgive, have patience, peace and joy in the darkest hours.

Thank God for these promises. And I have faith they are true. I know I am forgiven by God. I just wonder if the ones I've done wrong to could ever forgive me as well?
