Thank you God, for Jesus’s work on the cross.
This letter is heartbreaking and lovely—written from inside Fraterville Coal Mine in 1902, shortly after a huge explosion ripped through it and trapped and killed most of the 916 miners who were inside working.
"Oh God for one more breath. Ellen remember me as long as you live. Goodbye darling."
"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. For the creation eagerly waits with anticipation for God’s sons to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to futility—not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it—in the hope that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage of corruption into the glorious freedom of God’s children. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together with labor pains until now. And not only that, but we ourselves who have the Spirit as the firstfruits—we also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. Now in this hope we were saved, yet hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience.”"God is our refuge and strength,
a helper who is always found
in times of trouble.
Therefore we will not be afraid,
though the earth trembles
and the mountains topple
into the depths of the seas,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with its turmoil.”-Romans 8:18-25 and Psalm 46:1-3 (HCSB)
Ottogi Ramen CF Making Film
I assume this was the CF where Choo Sarang ate 2 packs of ramen noodles during the filming. So adorable.
"O Thou who came to us from above, the pure celestial fire to impart
Kindle a flame of sacred love on the mean altar of my heart
There let it for Thy glory burn with inextinguishable blaze
And trembling to its source return in humble prayer and fervent praise
Jesus confirm my heart’s desire to work and speak and think for Thee
Still let me guard the holy fire and still stir up thy gifts in me
Ready for all Thy perfect will, my acts of faith and love repeat
Till death Thy endless mercies seal, and make my sacrifice complete.”
- Charles Wesley
Praise is a vital part of a life surrendered to God, and it gives credit where credit is due. “O that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalm 107:8). Source: GotQuestions
"Remember How I Broke Your Heart" - Priscilla Ahn
Second time visiting UCB since high school.
Those who wish to live for God must seek Him in His Word. We must seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to apply the Word to our lives. Living for God means giving up ourselves and desiring God’s will above all else. As we draw nearer to God and come to know Him more, His desires will more naturally become ours. Source: GotQuestions
Lord, break my heart of stone. Help me to love others like You have loved me.
