Oprah: Your definition of God?
Rob Bell: Like a song you hear in another room and you think, "boy, that sounds beautiful but I can only hear a little bit." So you start opening doors and rearranging furniture because you have to get in that room and hear that song and when you get in, you find the knobs and you turn them all the way to the right because you think, "I have to hear more of that." And then you open the windows because you want the people in the next houses to hear.

Why isn’t this like 10min. long?

Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don’t. You are in good company. You are in the pit with King David. He waited. ‘I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction’ (Ps. 40:1–2). God will do that for you. You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.

demanding-mercy:

I have a problem with people saying that “strongly religious” means “conservative Christian” and that the best way for Christians to do life is to just be really casual about it because that assumes that

  1. religion is Christianity
  2. conservatives are Christians
  3. the problem…

But when the Bible speaks of love, it measures it primarily not by how much you want to receive but how much you are willing to give of yourself to someone.

We need to remember that we are saved by grace when we fail. But we need to remember it much more when we succeed.

I start seminary in 4 days.

I’m incredibly excited because this is absolutely what I want to be doing, but a little nervous as well - I’m going to be attending a conservative school that’s comprised of 76% (mostly white) men, and as a liberal leaning Latina, it’s kind of intimidating!

I also feel slightly pressured to do amazing because I’m a girl and I just don’t know how classes are going to go. And I don’t want my opinions discounted because I’m a girl or for guys to interrupt me.

And there’s the modesty thing because I kinda suck at that and I don’t even want to look nice because there’s the stereotype of women who go to seminary to find a husband and ehhhhh I’m tempted to wear a t shirt jeans and a ponytail every day so that people don’t assume things about me.

Basically: I care way too much about what others think. Also I’m so excited for Greek I don’t know if I can even contain myself. And I’m sure everything will be fine, but a new school is an unknown and unknown things are terrifying for me BUT I’m sure everything will be fine!!!!
