I was reading through Isaiah this morning about God’s peace and how He gives rest and how He does wonderful things, and I was feeling pretty encouraged, when I came across Isaiah 26:9 “My soul yearns for You in the night, my spirit within me earnestly seeks You.” And I had to read it about 5 times to fully grasp what this was saying.  Another version says “All night long I search for You; in the morning I earnestly seek for God.” And it blew my mind. I instantly was convicted. So often I go to God because I know He makes me feel better. He always has love for me and He does all these good and wonderful things. But when was the last time I went to God to simply worship Him? Even if I don’t “feel” Him or hear Him or see Him working in my life? Can I honestly say that my soul yearns for God? Probably not. I don’t know. I think it’s so easy to get caught up in our lives and what God is doing for us, that we forget the big picture.  God isn’t here for us-we are here for Him.  I desire to desire God. I want to find delight in Him alone. I want to look into His face, even when the world is falling apart around me, and say “You are enough. You are enough. You are all I could ever need.”  I am nothing. God is everything.

In New Zealand our drinking age is 18 but the drink driving tolerance for under 20s is zero and my friend who’s a cop said he gets great pleasure out of breathalising sober under 20 year olds and watching the terror fill their face as he tells them they’re 10 times over the legit drinking limit cause ten times zero is still zero

Anonymous asked: in case you really didn't know, the ride home takes less time because you brain actually slows time to gather new information on the way there, and on the way back it doesn't have to because the surroundings are more familiar. ^-^

Whoa hey that’s actually pretty cool, thanks! But what if you are like already really familiar with where you are going? Coming back still feels shorter to me most of the time.
