Being a Christian doesn’t mean your automatically happy ALL the time! There are so many people out there who portray Christianity as this thing that makes your life perfect. But our faith is not all about those dreamy pictures and perfect life and flawless bibles. We were never made to be a lukewarm Christian! Following Jesus means making sacrifices. It means reading your bible instead of watching all those episodes on Netflix. It means struggling with your faith and with what God says is true until you finally understand that what God says is what is best for you. It means taking action and loving those who are hard to love. It means having the devil proclaim war on you because he knows even though he cannot win he can cause you to believe in lies. Christianity is the best thing that has happened to me!! It gives me endless joy and hope! But we have to remember that it is not always going to be perfect. And THAT is what makes it so beautiful!! Because beauty flows from obedience, triumph over the devils lies, and ending lukewarm faith. Our faith can’t grow if it’s not tested! My man Jesus basically summed up what I was trying to say through this bible verse, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:13-14

if i pulled a you on you you wouldn't like that.

Cuando vas a ver a un maestro zen, él sólo te ayuda a estar silencioso, de manera que puedes hallar tu propia llave, que llevas encima desde hace mucho tiempo. Y así hallarás tu puerta –que está ahí-, y podrás penetrar en tu santuario más íntimo. Punto fundamental acerca del zen: el zen no es moralidad, sino estética. No impone un código moral, no te da ningún mandamiento tipo “haz esto o no hagas lo otro”. Simplemente te hace más sensible a la belleza, y esa sensibilidad se convierte en tu moral. Pero a continuación se alza más allá de ti, fuera de tu conciencia. #prana #silence #liveauthentic  #yoga #yoguini #yogi #nothingisordinary #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #Wandeleurspark #flashesofdelight  #theblogissue  #makeyousmilestyle #aquietstyle #sobestfriendsforfrosting #thedulcetlife #photosinbetween  #oneofthebunch #theeverydayproject

“The work of the eyes is done, go now and do heart-work on all the images imprisoned within you.“ Rainer Maria Rilke 🖤 Collection of new paintings on wood and canvas. Sensory overload.. 😄 I hope you can handle it. At the moment I’m working on different styles and techniques before I’m going to finish my big “lover paintings”. #🎨 ...and I’m starting to - I can’t say love, but - really really „like“ a new color. Lilac.. magical and mystical. 🔮 Let’s do some magic heart work now. 😊 . . . “Werk des Gesichts ist getan, tue nun Herz-Werk an den Bildern in dir.“ R.M.Rilke . . #popofcolor #ascension #acolorstory #poetryandart #lovers #risingcolorlovers #rilke #abstractogram #artistofinstagram #artcurator #artcollector #decorinspo #interiordesign #currentdesignsituation #finditstyleit #darlingmovement #pursuepretty #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #nothingisordinary #livethelittlethings #interiorinspiration #decorhome #interiors #archilovers #howwedwell #artshow #exhibition #artforsale
