“The Eucharist bathes the tormented soul in light and love. Then the soul appreciates these words, ‘Come all you who are sick, I will restore your health.’”— St. Bernadette Soubirous (via sweetandlovelygirl7)
I have had the phrase “Behold, I make all things new” running through my head. I was not trying to figure out its meaning.
A few days ago I started reading a book about chastity and relationships, and at the end of the book, the author was explaining something that meant very much to me, with which she ended with the verse “Behold, I make all things new.” (Rev 21:5)
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”— C.S. Lewis (via infinitydaysof)
So I’m pretty busy archiving my music from years past into my iTunes. This is such a throwback for me. Seriously— it’s reminding me of all these things that had happened and how my life and outlook on life was at that time. It’s also a reminder of how much has changed, and how much I have changed as a person.
