"God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him."

"I realize now that I don’t want to be around people who know everything about God. I want to be around people who are still figuring this faith thing out, just like me. I realize that we’re not just supposed to be experts at doctrine but experts at love. That some people have legitimate questions that can’t be neatly tied up in a single: “It’s God’s will” or whatever other Christian cliche we choose to lob at them. People need to hurt, question, grieve and doubt so that they can get to a point where their faith is a lot more real. And, in love, we need to let them wrestle with that tension. Because here’s what I’ve learned: it’s not our job to fix God’s people – it’s our job to hold them. And when we do, I personally believe that God Himself meets them in the middle of their brokenness."

You may not see or feel it now, but God has a great plan for your life. What you have to do is keep trusting him with all your heart. He knows the best for His children
