Misty Edwards Quotes

"I want to be a woman who lives totally abandoned to the first commandment: to love my Lord, my God, with all my heart. I dont want the reputation that I love God, I dont want to write songs about loving God, I dont want to talk about loving God. I want to actually love God. When I close my eyes, I want my heart to move. When I close my eyes and I look at Him, I want to feel alive on the inside. I want to look at Him with a fire in my heart and its real."

And the whole time, the whole time I kept thinking about how Id spent my entire life being a coward, and how it got me nowhere. And I knew that if I had the chance to do it all again, Id do it differently. I promised myself Id finally stop being afraid." - Author: Tahereh Mafi
