FROM LEE IN TENNESSEE: Graduate From Insecurity →
leeyounger: What good thing has insecurity ever given you? I guess it sometimes feels really humble and holy to think that you basically suck, but it’s time to get honest: that’s not what true humility is about. Insecurity wants pity, but you’re not pitiful. You are the beloved child of Almighty God. There’s…

childishnotions: writing is safer, somehow because my pen cannot stutter like my lips do, and words get stuck in throats, not fingertips, can’t stumble on paper trails of blue lines because writing is definite and clear and no one can tell if i am crying or laughing through written words alone

I’ve never lost anyone close to me and my parents aren’t divorced. I don’t have anxiety, and I love my life, for the most part. It’s hard for me to imagine the pain and suffering people are going through, though I wish I could. Nothing I’m saying is new and it’s been stated better many times, but I need to write it down to process. In these times of trial,...

FROM LEE IN TENNESSEE: If It's True →
leeyounger: (Some quick thoughts on the implications of Easter) If it’s true that Jesus rose from the dead, then everything we know and take for granted about life and the world has changed. If it’s true that He got up from His grave and lives an eternal, indestructible life, then all the rules and values…
Tonight, I fulfilled a semi-life-long dream:
Loiter in a parking lot after curfew and have a dance party, while eating a frosty.
Right now, I just feel like driving for hours and being alone. I want to watch the sunrise in an empty field and talk to God without anyone around. That would be a dream. Too bad it can’t happen. I just want to get away :(
Here we go.
Today I had the opportunity to shadow one of the worship leaders at my church. Everybody there has taken their time to invest in me and teach me skills I’ll need to be “marketable” at a church someday. I’m not totally sure what I want to do with my life. I love talking to people in the city, so ministering to people that haven’t heard Jesus in an outreach context...

FROM LEE IN TENNESSEE: The Best Word Ever →
leeyounger: What if there was one little word that wrapped up everything you wanted to be true about God? What if you could make a wish list of all the things you would want God to feel about you and then squish them all, simultaneously down into one little word? If that word existed, wouldn’t you want it to…
I have four separate trip opportunities in front...
Please pray for my dog.
She’s been sick for the last few days and doesn’t look good. My cat has been sitting next to her for awhile and I’m just nervous. Cat’s can sense stuff like that. :’( I feel so bad and I’m just scared.

Quotes/Paraphrasing from Passion in Atlanta.
*God fashioned our hearts so we would be satisfied and He would be glorified by our admiration of Jesus. *If you live for people’s acceptance, you will die from their rejection. *If you do a good deed for the reward, you’ve destroyed it’s goodness. That’s not loving, that’s selfish.
Jesus paid it all.
Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.

READ THIS. leeyounger: Welcome to the new year. Guess what?

I decided I would put these on the back of the bathroom stalls at school. Everyone needs a little encouragement sometimes, right? I put Bible verses on the back instead of just having the normal words, so they have something to look to. I also put a bunch of beauty verses, since girls have issues with that. I hope it helps people!
