and your plans will succeed.

Because we are human, it is easy for us to let our choices be ruled by our emotions or to become impatient with God’s timing. Many times we are even tempted to compromise what we believe in just because it feels good. It takes tremendous courage to choose what is right. But that’s the great thing about it—God can give us all the courage we need for those important choices! Because we are new creations in Christ, those old ways of thinking don’t have a hold on us anymore. We are free to choose for Him! You can choose the people you’re going to associate with, the things you feed into your mind—and how you see yourself. The choices you’re making right now will determine the kind of person you’ll be, so ask God today to help you make the right choices, especially those that take courage to make.

"One of the distinguishing marks of those who have truly heard Christ’s voice & opened their lives to Him is that they continue to follow Him. It is preposterous & heretical to teach that a man can be raised from spiritual death & yet the event have no enduring effect upon his life. A man cannot open his life to receive salvation & then close his heart to live a life of autonomy w/o the slightest regard for the Savior."
Paul Washer (via community4christ)

spiritualinspiration:

God loves and uses imperfect people. We all make mistakes. But because Jesus died and rose from the grave, every mistake we will make or ever make has been paid in full. Don’t let shame and guilt keep you from receiving God’s love any longer. Psalm 103:12 (NIV) says, “As far as the east is from the west, our sins are removed from God’s memory.”
Since God has removed them from His memory, it’s time we do the same and move forward with God and receive His love and mercy. You may have made mistakes, but God still believes in you, loves you and has an amazing future in store. Keep your heart toward God, and He will show Himself strong on your behalf!
