Within the three days that Christ was in the grave; The world mourned, Heaven prepared a throne-room for the Eternal King of Glory, and hell witnessed the collapse of its empire.
Sometimes in the silence and sorrow of life, Christ is doing His greatest work.
T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)
If God leads you to a difficult situation, and you have peace that you are to stay there, don’t analyze it or run away from it. Stay put. The longer I live, the more I believe that God’s leading is often humanly illogical. It’s a mystery, at least at least from our limited perspective.

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)
