"Does she scare you a little? Good. She should make you fear her love, so that when she lets you be apart of it, you won’t take it lightly. She should remind you of the power that beauty brings, that storms reside in her veins, and that she still wants you in the middle of it all. Do not take this soul for granted, for she is fierce, and she can take you places that you never thought you could go; but she is still loving in the midst of it all, like the calm rain after a storm, she can bring life. Learn her, and cherish her, respect her, and love her; for she is so much more than a pretty face, she is a soul on fire."

"What you girls have to understand is that one of the most attractive things you can bring to the table is modesty and being hard to get. Just that quiet confidence that comes from godliness. That ability to know who you are and because you know who you are, you don’t need the affirmation of a man, because you’ve got the affirmation of your God. Men will look at that and say, there is something different about her."

Drew Stevenson, Song of Solomon (via breanna-lynn)


When a man and a woman love each other, that thing between them, that bond that doesn’t let them walk away, that’s God. He’s the third part, uniting them, drawing them to one another even when they’d rather cut and run …

That’s why we can hurt one another so badly and then forgive and love again, because God’s changed all the rules and redefined the parameters - it’s His way of doing things.

That’s what marriage is - it’s showing the world how God loves. It’s public and accountable but it’s also passionate and private.

It’s that third thing that knits us all together, that makes sacrifice simple and heroism the new normal. It’s Him that makes a you and a me into an us.

That’s why nothing else in the world is like it. That’s why it feels so powerful and so beautiful and so terrifying, because it’s Him.

When a man comes to Christ, he goes from having a spirit of conquest, to having a spirit of cultivation. He no longer is seeking new lands to have for himself, he is taking care of the lands that Christ has already won; producing fruit that brings glory to God.

He doesn’t rule his wife and family, he helps them grow. He doesn’t subdue his friends and co-workers, he plants seeds within their hearts to see the goodness of God.

Jesus takes the sword from our hands and puts us to work into the field, giving back to us that which was lost; life.

"Does he or she lead you to Christ? Or do they lead you to themselves. Do you fall in love with Jesus when you are with them? Or do you fall in love with them. It’s so easy to make that special someone your top prize, but when it comes to another heart, they cannot be what you are striving for; they can only help you get there."

"Your mind fascinates me. If it were a visual thing, it would be so many moving colors, each spinning on its own and amongst each other. Your thoughts interwine with complexity and ease, but there are spots of tangled thoughts and emotions, some so tangled that they terrify you, yet when you begin to sort them, they reveal new colors and patterns you never expected. The entire gets even more wonderful through them."
