I’ve never been religious
And I’ve questioned everything you’ve ever said
Whether it be in a book
Or out loud
But please let there be a heaven because hell is in my head
And an eternity for me to meet
Every soul you gave away and then suddenly chose to keep— nisreensalem.wordpress.com (via hijabae)

This is now my life anthem ♥(via raneemwillshine)
God waits on you!
He stands at the door like a spiritual benefactor, His arms laden with gifts and blessings.
He waits until we are ready to receive. He waits for the perfect moment.
He waits until we appreciate what we are asking for. He waits until we have made sufficient preparations in our heart.
He waits until we are not too busy to notice. He waits until we are clean and free of resentment and discontentment.
He waits to answer until we have fully understood our question. He waits until maturity is appropriate and our understanding is elevated.
He waits until our arms are open and unhindered. And sometimes, He waits until we think He has forgotten, just to test and grow our faith. — Kristen Armstrong (via emrepublic)
In essence, the entire Bible is written as an affirmative response to this question. — Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, Jewish Literacy (via mermaideleh)
Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I will say, rejoice! Let your kindness be known to all. The Lord is at hand! Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are commendable, if there is any virtue or any praise, think about these things. What you learned, received, heard, and saw in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
I know how to be humbled, and I also know also how to overflow. In everything and in all things I have learned the secret of being both filled and hungry, of being in abundance and in need. I can do all these things through Christ who strengthens me. However, it was a good thing that you shared in my affliction.
My God will supply all of your needs according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be the glory unto ages of ages! Amen.— St. Paul to the Philippians 4:4-9, 12-14, 19-20 (thank you marie-madeleinehasablog)
