The other morning I woke up really early, I walked into the living room, saw the mist on the window with the sun rising and I felt full and wrote these words.
I’ve been thinking lately, about how faith isn’t linear, you can get lost in the middle of things, feeling like home is a long way off and you were supposed to be someone else, and yet the simplest unexpected moments can fill you with words you forgot were still stirring inside of you.
I asked God for strength, that I might achieve;
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health, that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.
I asked for riches, that I might be happy;
I was given poverty, that I might be wise.
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life;
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men most richly blessed.
just so you know what is going on in my country right now:
- votes came in for independence 45% yes 55% no
- media very “”no”” centred and bias
- unionists are now attacking yes voters
- a seventeen year old girl has been stabbed
- they are burning our saltire giving nazi salutes
- our first minister resigns
please signal boost this
Just watched this episode with the awesome roomies and this scene, and this scene alone, counts for everything.
"You told me once that you weren’t a hero… there were times I didn’t even think you were human, but, let me tell you this: you were the best man and human… human being I’ve ever known, and no-one will ever convince me that you told me a lie.
I was so alone, and I owe you so much.”
