No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013 (via maisiewilliams)

When God made the world, He knew it would be a messy place. Likewise, when He made you, He knew things would get messy. God is bigger than your mess, He is with you in your mess, and your mess comes as no surprise to Him.Unka Glen (unkaglen.tumblr.com)
peacebrah13 asked: How did you become who you are today?
I became who I am today through lots of struggle. I’ve dealt with my share of unpleasant experiences but it’s definitely shaped my character. After being so bitter towards God and life in general, I finally decided to be still and hear God’s voice, trusting Him with my whole heart, embracing His Awe-some love for me and all of His creations. Since then my life has taken such a unique path. I can’t say life is “easier” now, but I have a whole new perspective that gets me through it all, and I could narrow that down to simply: Love.
I’m still growing and changing, I’m still “becoming” who I need to be, but I know as long as I stick close to Christ, I will be on the right path, that is blessed, and full of meaning and purpose.
I hope I answered that well for you, don’t hesitate to ask more questions if you’d like.
