God, who wishes to dwell in us, can always be evicted by a single word of dismissal. And so it is important to consider the way to respond to God’s visitation – which we cannot prevent, but can cut short. The first necessity of our cooperation with God is the consciousness that it is He who is present; the will to know Him causes our recognition of His presence. If we lack this readiness to know Him, we are like those who smell and perceive no fragrance, taste and know no sweetness, touch and enjoy no ecstasy.
the 7 y/o boy who lives next door doesn’t want to go in the house to bed and i just heard his dad use the old “you live under my roof, you live by my rules” and the kid just shouted back “im not under your roof im under the sky and thats god’s roof and he wants me to play out for longer!”
i can’t stop laughing.
update: now he’s scootering down the street singing ‘we didn’t start the fire’ while his dad chases him
Morning guys. I hope you remember today that if you slip up you can restart your day at any time. You don’t have to wait til the next day to start over. Just sit down, breathe for a few minutes, and start again.
I like this. I really like this.
Reading this everyday for the weeks to come.
In grade 8 I really hated this girl so I collected the sugar from my pack of sour patch kids and gave it to her saying its cocaine and she actually snorted it and at recess she pretended she was high and she was called crack w**** for the rest of the year. Now she does real crack and blames me saying I got her addicted. She still doesnt know it was just sugar
