hi. my name's Melissa. Jesus Christ is all i need. i'm 23. i like baking, tea, coffee, and sushi. i don't like mornings, and i want to be there for you. i'm pretty tiny.
these are some things that i like,
these are some things that i love.

"I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions."

 

The saddest word
in the whole wide world
is the word almost.


He was almost in love.
She was almost good for him.
He almost stopped her.
She almost waited.
He almost lived.
They almost made it.

Be compassionate. Everyone is struggling and the last thing they need is someone judging them and making their fight worse. Spread love.

“Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” 
Joshua‬ ‭1‬:‭6-9‬

Love is not tolerating, it’s finding beauty in someone else’s weakness.

Poem

xchet-steadmanx:

Father my life is fundamentally worthless, and yet somehow you keep telling me I am worth it. What did I do to deserve any form of love or even a spark of acceptance? Jesus why me? Why? I cant even tie a knot let alone be trusted to exercise patience for my own brothers when they absolutely need…
