My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes - many times - my feelings are out of sync with the truth. When that happens - and it happens every day in some measure - I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth.

"A billion galaxies will not satisfy the human soul." (Ps 8:3) Your heart was made for God.

Every day you’re alive, you can change the world. It could be for the better or for the worse. It can be big waves or small waves. The very fact that you’re alive and breathing and walking outside, going to class, whatever it is, you’re changing the world with each footstep. There’s a lot of weight to that.

Purity is a condition of the heart, of the mind and of the spirit more than a simple category of one’s physical experiences.
