I am the prodigal daughter.
I left when I was jaded with religion.
Let my wounded pride and broken heart be my eyes.
Your people are all the same,
I won’t have any part,
I will do it on my own.
You tried to tell me you were different.
I told you I don’t know if I still believed in us anymore,
If I still believed in you.
You said you will wait.

Days turned into months,
Bitterness rooted deep.
I was dead inside,
But still trying to find life on my own.
I know what is best,
I will fight my own battles.
You called me to come home,
And I said only after I had won this battle.

Months dragged on to years,
And I was dry, weary and wrung out.
I spent nights deciding between the noose and white flag.
Until one day, I was close to breaking.
I turned back.
And it was just like the old story.
The one I have heard since young.
You ran to me before I was even in sight of home.
It didn’t matter what I’ve done.
It didn’t matter how wretched I was.
I was the prodigal daughter,
But You were the Father, prodigal with love

peebles teach me how to be you

can we just talk about this for a minute

because seriously i have so much respect for the adventure time team. they’ve made a successful cartoon that isn’t random poop and fart jokes for a solid eleven minutes. sure, adventure time has its immature moments, but then there’s parts like this.

pb’s backed up against the wall in a position that’s way too common in today’s society. you can tell she’s scared and uncomfortable. so what does she do? she beats the shit out of ricardio.

she doesn’t “play nice”, she doesn’t “let him down gently”, she tears off his limbs and stomps on his face. then ricardio tries to play the nice guy card and she has none of it. it’s refreshing to see something aimed at children that doesn’t state that girls need to be polite and sweet and stand by while someone makes them uncomfortable.

basically, i love this show and i love how it teaches girls something that’ll actually come in handy some day. god fucking bless.

Hanging around Christian doesn’t make you Christian. Playing Christian and wearing Christian doesn’t make you Christian. Are you all alright with that? I’m not being mean, it’s real. I say this again and I say it humbly and seriously, when nobody’s looking, that makes you Christian. When nobody else knows and nobody else sees, the bible says there’s Somebody seeing, and in the open He’ll reward it. When nobody else is in the picture, that’s the real you. When nobody’s aware, that’s when it’s real. That’s where your life changes, because then you’re only doing it for one reason: To know Him, to be with Him.
