Someone just informed me yesterday that Justin’s mom favorited a tweet of mine from my old fan account! WHAT?! Awesome sauce. // For anyone that hasn’t seen her Full Circle interview, it’s amazing! God does extraordinary things for the most (seemingly) ordinary people! :)
The sentence “Do not be afraid” was used 365 times in the Bible, which happens to be the number of days in a year. This only means that God wants us to have the strength to face everything, EVERY DAY. :)
this actually makes me wanna cry. he has the biggest heart, he is an amazing person. :’)
Words cannot express how much I love this boy.
This is such an amazing picture to me. You don’t understand how important this is
guys… you don’t ned to make a huge deal out of everything Justin does. Every christian wants to touch that wall. it isn’t a fucking big deal. so I go touch the wall, BAM OMG I HAVE SUCH A HUGE HEART. I’m just saying.
i heard about that wall before there is a man who is sent to push letters in the wall that the Christians want to send to God lol
WHOA WHOA WHOA. HOLD THE FUCK UP! And here I was thinking that Beliebers had more fucking respect! Not even just Beliebers, but any thoughtful person in general. I’m pissed now. Y’all think you have an idea of what this means to religious people, but you obviously don’t with your closed-minded, “he has such a big heart” comments.
Being in Jerusalem, the holy city, and touching the wall meant more than you’ll ever know to Justin. It has nothing to do with him having a big heart, it’s the fact that he has God in his heart. Because of that he fully understands what this place meant and will forever mean to people of faith - Jewish, Christian, and Muslim alike. Not to mention the fact that The Wall itself was build before Christ was even born; it’s a lasting relic of history.
And get your facts straight if you want to keep yourself from looking like an idiot. More than a million prayer notes in almost every language are placed into the cracks of The Wall every year by both religious and non-religious visitors and locals. The first one was placed there in the 1700s by a Rabbi. So, I have no idea why you think the practice is even remotely funny.
DO YOUR FUCKING RESEARCH, AND CHECK YOURSELF BEFORE YOU WRECK YOURSELF NEXT TIME.
Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter, Meredith, was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to Heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could, so she dictated these words:
Dear God, Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in Heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and to swim. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her, you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her. Love, Meredith
We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to Heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.
Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.” Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:
Dear Meredith, Abbey arrived safely in Heaven. Having the picture was a big help. I recognized Abbey right away. Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in Heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in, so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by. Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find, I am wherever there is love. Love, God
My grandpa forwarded this to me in an email the other day. I thought it was the sweetest thing, and I knew I had to share! Even if you are non-religious, I hope it still touches you! :)
Justin Bieber singing ”waves of grace” through the years <3
The walls are high, the walls are strong. I’ve been locked in this castle that I’ve built for far too long. You have surrounded me, a sea on every side. The cracks are forming and I’ve got nowhere to hide.
Now I see the walls I’ve built are falling, And Your waves of grace are washing over me.
“…in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
Fifteen-year-old Kent Manning, left, and his sister Libby, 18, react with their father, who asked not to identified, after they were told by police that there was no hope of finding Kent and Libby’s mother alive in a collapsed building following a 6.3-magnitude earthquake Tuesday, in Christchurch, New Zealand, Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2011.
I can’t even imagine! I have goosebumps all over! My thoughts and prayers go out not only to those in Christchurch, but all who are currently suffering, whether it be by government oppression or personal grievance. Stay strong, you are not alone!
“Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.’” John 13:7
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.” Psalm 46:1-2
Interviewer: Can I just ask you how important faith is to you?
Justin: It’s very important, I think that it’s probably the number one thing for me. I think it’s great that I have God in my life, and He’s probably the number one reason I’m here and without God I don’t know what I would do. He keeps me humble.
