Emily | Daughter of the Living King

"You knew me before I was formed; my every thought, every word spoken, every mistake made. You knew when I would fake a smile and when I would break. You knew when I would lie, when I would run too the enemy and all his promises. You knew every part of me and you still knitted me in the womb with the utmost care. You remembered my name when You paid the price. You knew of my human nature, and You loved me without any conditions. You loved me before I knew what love was. You adored me when I rejected You. I came into this world a sinner, and You forgave me long before I took my first breath. Your arms are still outreached, even though You know all I have done and will do, because You loved me first."
- You knew and You loved me anyways. (via heldinhishands)

"My problem was not
Not being good enough,
My problem was
Thinking I had to be."
"God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God."
- C.H. Spurgeon (via tenth0usandreas0ns)

"When you break her heart
for the first time, don’t tell her
that you understand, that
you didn’t mean to, that you
will always love her. Why?
Because you’ll be breaking
her heart all over again.
She’ll use your synthetic sympathy
as a crutch, see it as a sign
that you might return someday.
Don’t do that to her, not again.
Don’t make her believe that
there is still a chance, because
you know as well as I do
that there is no fighting chance.
That there are no regrets
lining the walls of your heart.
You broke her into two. So please,
leave her alone to mend
the pain, to fill the emptiness,
to start over without you
in the hopeful parts of her heart."
