It's in us.

Pride leads to every other vice: 
it is the complete anti-God state of mind.
| c.s lewis |

What is this disease? 

This deadly, silent sin that sits like lord of the underworld,

laughing at us.

We scurry around the surface 

plucking at the weeds,

thinking that selfishness, fear, cruelty, anger, 

[my friend, the list goes on]

thinking these all begin and end,

with no relation to each other.
Oh yes,

we think we know the problem, 

we think we know the fix,

but when someone says, 

"perhaps its pride"

we lash out in annoyance 

saying,

"oh it's not me, it's just _____".

There's always something else to blame it on, 

someone else to point at,

but we never turn the finger to our chest 

to reveal,

it is only us.

Pride is spiritual cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love,
or contentment, or even common sense.

Alive in Him | Alive for Him

Do not waste your time on simply thinking,

But live it with actions coloring your life.

It is not for futile that we are here on this earth, for God has saved us for a reason.

To live for Him,

To be really alive.
-
"And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 
in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world....
...But God, being rich in mercy, 
because of His great love with which He loved us, 
even when we were dead in our transgressions, 
made us alive together with Christ, 
(by grace you have been saved)"
Ephesians 2:1-5

A reminder for you... and for me :)

<3 Eva

Remember that you do not ever look into the eyes
of someone whom God does not love
