The Bible tells of a time when Jesus fed a crowd of five thousand with only five loaves. That day, everyone had more than enough to eat and there were still twelve baskets full of bread. That’s because we serve a God of abundance! I love that Jesus told the disciples to collect all the leftovers “so that nothing is wasted.” With God, nothing is ever wasted. He’ll never waste an experience; He’ll never waste a hurt; He’ll never waste a dream; He’ll never waste even a single piece of bread.
God is still in the miracle-working business. He is still our Creator and He is a Restorer. If you’ve felt like you’ve wasted years of your life in the wrong job, hanging around the wrong people, doing the wrong things, God will gather those years and restore them back to you. He’ll take those experiences that the enemy meant for your harm, and He’ll turn them around for your good. He’ll make you stronger, wiser, and better off than you were before. He can launch you further into your destiny than before. Be encouraged today because with God all things are possible and nothing is ever wasted!
Is it more important to not give advice? As in, giving advice may place the advice-giver in a place of dominance, as they have overcome, or are not experiencing said situation, placing the advice-givee (if i can coin that word) in a subordinate position, disallowing a personal, intimate relation?
Part of me wants to vent everything about me; how I feel and my current situation. The other part doesn’t, because I’m not willing to change for the better.
Just in case
I’m actually going to reblog a thing just because this is really important.
As someone who has epilepsy and used to have several grand mal seizures a day, I’d also like to add that “offer help” can range anywhere from keeping the person calm to explaining to them where they are and what they were doing to even just telling them they should sit and rest for a while longer (lack or coordination is common, and it can be hard to walk straight or see clearly).
It’s okay for them to take up to a half hour to fully regain their bearings and sort out what they were doing prior to the seizure. Just answer any questions calmly and be there for support.
If they come around and you start to panic or shake them or ask them what the heck is wrong with them they are going to freak out and panic too.
I cannot stress it enough that this is bad.
If someone has a seizure and they come out of it, please. please stay calm.
They are likely disoriented and confused, even if it’s only for a minute or two, and you don’t want them panicking on top of that because they can have another seizure as a result.
IMPORTANTI actually do have epilepsy and suffer from occasional grand mal seizures, so this hits close to home. Yes. It is important. Please reblog.
Everyone treats epilepsy like some minor disease and this is so serious. PLEASE share this.
what if your pillow could collect your dreams and when you wake up you plug it into your computer and watch them over again
The cognitive dissonance caused by a society that tells its children to “follow their dreams” through messages in films, literature, etc. and then punishes them for not choosing safe, money making careers in adulthood is fascinating, to say the least.

- Micah: I know how to play six instruments, but I want to learn another one.
- Me: Really? What do you play?
- Micah: I play the air guitar, the electric spoons, the spoons, the tambourine, air drums, and the triangle.
- You should learn how to play the panjo. : )
one day, my dear.
