Anonymous asked: is sex a sin?
oh god I hope not.
haha, no, it’s not. God created it. I mean He commanded people to be fruitful and multiply, right? Song of Solomon is basically a poem about sex, right?
But like any other good thing, it can be warped and twisted into something that’s not good. It’s designed for intimacy in marriage, and outside of His design, yes, it becomes sinful.

"more than conquerors"
What does that mean anyway?
I think that being a conqueror means winning in my own circle. It means seeing victory in my mind and my struggles and my life.
I think that being more than a conqueror means that you are so full to overflow, that you now have the ability to step outside of your circle, into other circles, and declare victory, uphold righteousness, and walk alongside those in their struggle.
You are not only a conqueror and a victor, you are more than a conqueror.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

I can’t get this song out of my head, I am submerged in it.
I’m chasing You,
I’m so in love
I just can’t get enough
I’ll spend my days running after Your heart
Anonymous asked: Hey Hope, So there's this guy whom I've known forever and he is amazing. Lately though he's been distancing himself and just not being who he used to be. I can't seem to get through to him. I've been praying for him but it just seems like he's sinking further and further away. Is there any advice you could give in order to maybe pull him back? I know I shouldn't be worried but I am.
Hi! I’m a little confused to be honest, haha. He’s distancing himself from you or God or people in general, or?
I think either way, this quote comes to mind: “we can’t save people. we can only love them.” & so I think you just need to rest in that and not carry that on your shoulders. You are praying for him, you are probably loving him as well as you can. The rest is God’s job.
Sometimes people go through seasons where they need to have more time alone. Solitude - especially when God pulls you away into it, with Him - can be so healthy and needed and refreshing. Even if that’s not what this is, it can turn into a good situation. Nothing is out of God’s reach :)
I think the best thing you can do is be available. Not try to keep pulling him back, but be ready if he ever reaches out for help, and to be (calmly) watchful of his situation. I think that you are such a good friend for even asking this and noticing his situation. I have so much confidence that you will know what to do if/when he needs you.
And then we kiss and his lips turn into sand
And the whole of him cascades through my hands

sleepy is cute and dozing off and happy but tired is 10 cups of coffee and murder
