To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle. She is gracious. She is godly and she is giving… You and I, if we are women, have the gift of femininity. Very often it is obscured, just as the image of God is obscured in all of us… The more womanly we are, the more manly men will be, and the more God is glorified. As I say to you women, ‘Be women. Be only women. Be real women in obedience to God.’

Elisabeth Elliot (via set-apartgirl)

lalaaa4:

Two people denied Jesus the night before His death: Judas & Peter. Both wept for their mistake.

What was the difference between the two?

Judas turned away from God & judged himself. Peter repented, went back to God, & let Him forgive & restore him.

Never underestimate the power of Jesus to forgive & restore.

God never changes his mind about the people he calls. He never decides to take back the blessings he has given them.
— Romans 11:29
