This Is How A Libra Wants To Be Fucked

Ahh, the scales of the universe have shifted once again, leaving you eyeing that harmonious, Venusian poster child of the Zodiac, Libra.

You've read over and over the qualities of Libra – Peace loving, witty, a sexy socialite, and suave companion. Perhaps you may have paid little attention to them previously due to their indecisiveness, lack of assertion, and occasional superficial smile here and there.

Ha! Are you seriously letting that airy, flirtatious conversation fool you into thinking that Libra is nothing more than a pretty face?

Luring a Libra begins with the mind. As one of three air signs of the Zodiac, Libra needs to connect mentally before anything else.

Have you heard the phrase "Mind Fuck?" Yep. Libra coined that phrase far before the big bang, so get your freak hat and your classy hat out, because you will need both for this rodeo.

Fucking a Libra takes preparation, but don't worry, I'm here to help. After all, Libra is defined by the Divine Scales, the only inanimate representation of the entire Zodiac. Imagine the dirtiest thought you've ever had. Now imagine the most glorious. I guarantee that Libra has been both places one thousand times over. The best part however, is that Libra can live these polarities at the same time. A walking paradox. A porno suggestion sidebar come true.

Libra rules the lower back, all the way to that heavenly, perfectly proportioned posterior. This is dubbed by astrologers like me to be the go-to erogenous zone for Libra.

If your Libra has been giving you evasive, vague and poetic lines all night, you are almost ready to jump into the fray. Read a little more.  

Some days Libra wants to be the individual of adoration, turning your vanilla ass worshipping session into a three-room-three-table-bonanza.

Continually tell your Libra how beautiful they are, and reaffirm this with a playful nibble or slap here and there. Jump back and forth between intense hair pulling, and a sensual fondling of the part of your preference. When Libra becomes flighty, pin them down. The key here is to be firm, yet natural. Anything too aggressive and primal will not result in a second booty call from this sign. Light a candle together while mid act – that is for bonus points only. Libra rules partnerships and relationships; if you are getting hot and heavy, your Libra will be responsive.

Some days Libra wants to prove everyone wrong. An expert debater, Libra is no stranger to the dominant role, although commonly stereotyped into the submissive role. If your Libra suddenly wears that smug grin, you better sound proof the walls because they are about to deliver a load of dominance that will leave more than a sticky residue. Libra loves to shatter sexual taboos as they are so socially aware that it's tough for them to let go. Libra is a "Cardinal Sign" meaning they truly are the initiators of the Zodiac, so if they are surprising you by getting a little pushy, let it happen.

In a perfect Libran world, suitors would swoon them to their breaking point, and tear away all of that innocence.

They would also get to do the same to you.  Only then will the ideal Libran bond be achieved. Until then, reorganize your book collection, buy a blindfold or two, and pick up some roses.

Good luck, allow yourself to be moonstruck. TC mark

10 Stories Of Partners Being Driven To The Brink Of Cheating (And What Exactly Ended Up Happening)

Posted: 09 Aug 2016 08:00 PM PDT

Stories originally posted to Reddit.com

1. It’s a craving

I love my girlfriend, want to spend my life with her, and want her to be the mother of my children, but I constantly want to cheat on her. It has nothing to do with her (i.e. it in no way reflects my feelings towards her) but I always have that craving.

2. Not yet

I’ve never cheated on my wife, but I really want to find a sexy woman to have an ongoing FWB relationship with while still staying married to my wife. I should feel guilty for wanting this, but I don’t. What’s wrong with me?

3. In love with a woman who’s not my wife

My wife and I are separated and actually filing for divorce these next few months. Over the last year I gave our relationship absolutely everything I could to make it work but it was all in vain. She just wasn’t interested in continuing our relationship and so it crumbled to the point where I admitted defeat.

Before I met this woman (Nikki is her name) I had only slept with my wife and had a single one night stand. I met Nikki three weeks ago through a series of bizarre events and eventually met up. We live an hour apart but have gone on three dates.

I’ve honestly had more fun with Nikki than I ever had with anyone else. I have massive trust issues stemming from lots of (non-sexual) events from my childhood and growing up, so it takes me a very long time to trust and be open with someone. Not her though, within a week I was pouring my soul out to her.

And damn, it’s scary. Honestly I would be more heartbroken if Nikki left me than my wife. She knows everything about my situation and I know everything about her’s. I won’t go into a ton of detail explaining the intricacies of our relationship. But it’s pretty awesome.

We had sex the third date. It was amazing. Better than I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to see her again. And it has nothing to do with sex, I just feel so happy with her.

I miss you Nikki.

4. Ex came onto me in the hot tub

My wife and I were dating for about, oh I don’t recall.. Maybe just less than a year.

Her mom took the entire family to a vacation spot for the Holidays. My Ex-Girlfriend and I are still good friends. Heck, we’re still friends on facebook and I’ve been married for 11 years now.

One night while I was at her moms house watching her dog, I invited my ex over to the hot tub. Surprised she said yes, we where huge hockey fans and ended up watching a NHL game. Before I knew it we were both naked and my EX gave the best head. We ended up doing it but once I was done, I was like, you got to go.. haha I wish I didn’t kick her out so fast, maybe round 2/3/4.. but you know how it goes when you cum.. I’m like see ya..

What is funny, is to this day, when I go over to her house, I take a picture of her moms bed and send it to my Ex.

5. I cheat. I enjoy it.

When my bf works the night shift I usually text these other 3 straight guys I been sucking off and swallowing their cum, for at least the past 3.5 years — almost as long as my relationship with him.

They come over, throat fuck me, and cum m in my mouth and then they take-off. Knowing he works graveshift makes me the happiest, because I always know I’m going to be able to text these other guys and get some COCK. I’m hard thinking about it right now.

Sucks he doesn’t work tonight. Just the thought of having another COCK in my throat or in my ass makes me want to be alone. I don’t feel bad either. Last night this dude I been sucking since October of last year every other week texted me saying “suck my fat COCK” and I’m like I can’t he’s here. He said I really need your expert cocksucking skills bro. Fuck I wanted to hear him moan loud as I drain his nuts and my throat.

6. “I’m married and going on a date this weekend.”

Yeah, go ahead and downvote and call me an asshole. I already know the moral implications of what I’m doing, I just feel this irresistible urge to share this confession online.

I’ve been married for almost 3 years. I’m 25. I have three small children. My wife and I are essentially separated but still live together. It’s way too complex and boring to type out, so you’ll have to take my word for it. I’ve made a lot of bad decisions throughout my short life, and this is probably another to add to the list.

I met this girl, a few weeks ago. Really long story, but I got her number from a single friend because he was no longer interested in her (had only texted each other, never met) and he’s the kind of guy that ghosts people.

Anyways I thought she was very attractive so I made up a fake name and story and we talked for awhile. I never intended to go anywhere with it, it was just for fun really. But soon enough I started to really like her.

She lives an hour away so after a week of talking we met up in a park. We chatted about life and all that goes with it, and it turns out she’s also married. She claims she’s separated but still lives with her husband for various reasons.

I was never going to tell her my real name and the fact that I was married, but she was so honest and…real with me? I don’t know exactly, but I told her everything about me (truthfully) and we were both okay with it. We drove around, got coffee, and eventually kissed for awhile before we had to go our separate ways.

Four days ago she came and visited me. We just went and had fun for hours. Drove around, went geocaching, hiking, all sorts of stuff. We really had fun. We kissed a fair amount. The last ten minutes we spent together we parked and went a bit further. No clothes off, but a fair amount of touching. It was awesome.

Now in four hours I’m going to go see her again. I haven’t slept all night, I’m too anxious and excited. This time we’ll be alone at her house to watch a movie and I’m pretty sure we just might go all the way. She’s sent me plenty of nudes and provocative messages and we’re pretty open about things.

I’m actually pretty dang excited. I’ve felt trapped and depressed for so long and I know this will make me feel good for awhile. I’m sure it’ll all come crashing down soon enough though. My marriage is already coming to an end and we’re planning on getting a divorce in a few short months so perhaps this will help me cope with it all?

Sorry for the wall of text. But if you read this all the way through, thank you. I know I’m not a good person. I no longer pretend to be one. I’m on AntiDepressants but I know I have something wrong with me mentally. But yeah, I’ll still appreciate someone calling me a dick.

7. Am I cheating??

I have an amazing boyfriend and I love him. I would never cheat on him. I just love the rush I feel when I know other men want me but will never have me. I like “accidentally” letting men see down my shirt, brushing up against them, casually making suggestive motions and comments, etc.

I know I am not alone. Who else does this?

8. Met this woman at a workshop and…

I recently went away to a workshop and felt a connection with a woman helping run the meeting. After the banquet, we walked back to the hotel and decided to go hang out in the hot tub. After about an hour and a half of intimate (like no secrets) conversation, we got out and hung out on the deck for a while, at which point she put on a wrap and undressed from her bikini. A little while later we went to her room and smoked a little pot and chatted all while she was under this wrap–both of us still a little wet from the pool.

We turned most of the lights out and had a nice evening. Now I wonder if I should have just gotten physical with the risk of regret knowing how much I currently ache for her. I also feel like my wife is getting a raw deal since I can not stop thinking about this other woman.

9. I’m kinda tempted…

Recently, my co-worker’s wife admitted that she has fantasized about me. She’s been more flirty since then. She also recently told me that she and her husband are barely having “relations” and it has been driving her insane.

I’m married, but I have to admit that I’m tempted–it’s nice to have someone actively attracted to me. I realize that’s terrible, and I wouldn’t cheat on my wife, but it feels really good to have someone looking at me like that, and I fantasize about what it would be like. Just needed to get that off my chest.

10. I just cheated on my girlfriend and feel great, and terrible

I have been with my girlfriend for almost 6 years now. We’ve lived together the past 3. We’re both in our early 30s. Things are, largely, very good between us. I love her and she loves me very much. There’s issues as there are in all couples, some minor, but two very significant. The one significant issue that’s relevant to this confession is that she is a completely non-sexual person.

Through a combination of jobs that required travel, dating long distance and the general stress of launching our careers, I never realized just how severe it was. I know she’d dated plenty of guys before me, she’d never mentioned this being an issue and I didn’t dig too deeply into her past sex life.

Well, come to realize, if we never had sex again, it really wouldn’t bother her. The only thing that would bother her about it is that it’s weird to be with someone you don’t sleep with and she is extremely opposed to seeming weird. In any case, about 18 months ago, I realized it had been over six weeks since we last slept together. And that wasn’t odd. She’d shut me down so much, I finally stopped pushing because it felt so bad and I knew what the result was before I asked.

We talked at great length and she told me that this was an issue in every relationship she’d ever had and that it was the cause for breakup in many of them. Well…fuck.

So for 18 months now, we’ve worked at it. Tried to make it happen, make time for it, figure out if there’s something, anything, she wants in the bedroom. So far, not really.

And all of this on the back of an incredibly loving, close relationship. Outside of this, there’s few things that would keep me from marrying her. Nothing, really.

All of that leads up to 2 weeks ago. I was out with some friends for a birthday party and ran into an old college acquaintance. I was drunk enough to think chatting with her was a good idea. She is objectively gorgeous, 8.5/10 seems a fair evaluation and Natalie Dormer-esque bedroom eyes. One thing lead to another, she confessed she’d had a crush on me in college and still did and oh, wouldn’t you know it? Her place is 3 blocks away.

I haven’t had sex that free, that open, that joyful, that real in 6 years. It was utterly incredible. It’s exactly what I remember sex being like. Connection, fun, physical. All of that great stuff. She was energetic, dirty, just fucking spectacular. It was transcendent.

And after I left, I hurled my guts out in the alley. Not from the alcohol, I was nowhere near that drunk, but from the onset of the reality of what I’d just done.

So, that’s where I am today. It hasn’t been that weird at home because, well, the girlfriend and I haven’t kissed, touched, slept together since it happened and that is in no way odd. I feel like a piece of shit, because I am. I know that. I also know that there’s no way I can go through the next 60 years of my life knowing that great sex isn’t some idealized version of college escapades, it’s out there and it’s waiting for me.

Fuck. TC mark

I’m So Sorry Leaving Was Your Only Option

Posted: 09 Aug 2016 07:00 PM PDT

Nishe

I'm so sorry you spent so much time battling back and forth in your own head because he couldn't treat you the way you deserved.

He should have given you roses, but instead he only picked you weeds.

You loved him, you constantly tried to see the best in him and you really wanted things to work out between you, but you couldn't keep killing yourself over the expense of your dead end relationship.

I know leaving hurt you; it nearly broke you. You didn't want to do it but you knew hanging on would only leave you empty inside and for that I'm sorry.

You gave it your all, I watched you pour your heart into the relationship. I wanted you cry because you didn't know what to do. I watched you suffer because you always wanted more, but you didn't want to sound too needy.

Watching you taught me that sometimes you can't make a person love more or give more, sometimes they're giving you all they've got, but that still might never be enough. It isn't a bad thing, don't ever let anyone tell you it's a bad thing. You just want someone to be able to love you the way you love them, and someone will, it just won't be him.

I watched you give and give and give, but all you were left with was emptiness inside your chest because you were always giving pieces of yourself to someone who could never give anything back.

You deserve more than that and I know you know that too, that's why you broke it off.

You know you owe it to yourself to have someone in your life who lights you up on the inside. Someone who isn't only willing to put in the same amount of effort as you, but wants to put in the effort because your relationship is important to him.

It might take weeks or months or years, but someone will come into your life and fit into your life like a glove. You will find happiness in him and he will find happiness in you.

I know right now you might not believe that, you might have thought he was the one, but he wasn’t.

I know it's hard for you to believe that there really wasn't a diamond until all that dust that you spent so much time polishing, but you can't let it consume you.

Find yourself in this world, on your own two feet and move forward. Let him go, if he begs for you back, which he should because he's only now realizing how good he had it, don't go back. Don't go back to the person who broke you because he can't fix you. He can't undo the damage he's already done.

Use the time to find yourself and to grow because someone great will come along and you'll be happy you stopped investing time into a stagnant relationship and started investing in yourself instead. TC mark

23 Men Who Thought They Weren’t The ‘Marrying Type’ On What Made Them Want To Propose

Posted: 09 Aug 2016 06:00 PM PDT

NickBulanovv

1. “I loved women and I didn’t want to settle down. I resisted dating my wife for two years because I knew she would change my mind. She was brilliant and outgoing and called me on my shit. We became friends and my energy for wanting to see other women petered out. I was happiest when I was with her so I finally asked her out. She said yes and sure enough, a year later my mind had been made up the other way: I couldn’t live with out her and proposed on our anniversary.”

2. “I grew up. I was always saying I would never get married before 40 and how stupid it was when guys ‘threw their lives away’ in my early 20’s. By my late 20’s I kind of saw how life would be better when you had someone else around to enjoy it with. Then I fell in love with someone who didn’t make commitment feel like a chore. We have fun every day together, my life is better than when I was single.”

3. “We split up because she was pressuring me to get engaged which pissed me off. I wasn’t ready and I resented the pressure. I was kind of relieved when we ended up breaking up because I could go back to my single life and have freedom. But it turns out that freedom is fucking awful. Freedom means no one cares about what you are doing and no one is there to tell when you have good news. I was lonely and suddenly my source of emotional support and physical connection was gone. That’s when I got serious about how lifelong commitment was an actual goal for me.”

4. “I lost my dad and I realized that life is not something I want to go through alone. Not because I’m afraid of being single, but because I genuinely want to choose to be with someone.”

5. “I loved my life until I met a girl who made me feel like my life hadn’t started yet. There was so much more depth to it with her around, more satisfaction, more fulfillment.”

6. “I had a negative view of women in my 20’s. I’d had some bad relationships, been cheated on and taken advantage of. So, I swore I would never get married because at least in all those shitty relationships I wasn’t tied to them legally and financially. Simply put what changed my mind is meeting the most warm-hearted, kind woman who I knew beyond any shadow of a doubt was not capable of hurting me the way I’d been hurt in the past.”

7. “My parents got divorced when I was 11 and it was nasty. I was a sad kid always in the middle of them fighting over me and I grew up thinking that’s what relationships were like. You were happy and in love and then you hated each other’s guts. What changed was meeting someone who was worth the risk that I might hate her guts one day, and who makes me believe that won’t happen.”

8. “My now wife and I were dating and she wanted to get married and I didn’t. I didn’t see why anything had to change when we were so happy with things as they were. Finally she made me realize that even though I kept saying “what’s the big deal” about a “piece of paper” — my argument worked the other way too. If it wasn’t a big deal, why was I so resistant? I took some time and worked through some stuff about growing up in a house where my parents fought all the time and realized we weren’t the same couple. That didn’t have to be us.”

9. “I found out I got into an extremely difficult program in my industry. I was more excited than I’d ever been in my entire life but I had no one to tell or go out with to celebrate. I realized I wanted that and kind of changed my tune even though I was single at the time. I guess it was a natural part of growing older, even though I felt so set in my ways previously.”

10. “She stuck up for me when my parents were doing their usual thing of telling me how much better my life would be if I was a doctor or lawyer and had a steady income instead of being a commercial artist who can make a living off my work — but has to chase down payments and go through lean times occasionally. This had become such a routine I was only barely paying attention but my girlfriend went to the mats for me and my business. It clicked in my mind that I no longer viewed her as a separate person with separate interests, but as part of my team. Why not make it official?”

11. “I met her when I was at my absolute worst, and she saw the best in me. All my negative feelings about marriage were put at ease because we were already experiencing them at the beginning of our relationship — I had no money, I was going through family shit, my life was not pretty.”

12. “I just realized that every time I saw her I was happier than the days I didn’t see her. I wasn’t crazy about the idea of marriage and paying for a wedding, but it was worth it to keep her.”

13. “If I would have known that a relationship could be easy I never would have been weary about marriage to begin with. After four years together the luster hadn’t worn off, so I made the decision that marriage was a pretty safe bet. Luckily, I was right, we’re happier than ever.”

14. “Even though I’d warned her I never wanted to get married and she warned me that she did we stayed together. It was this stalemate but she wore me down. I realized that I could no longer imagine my future without her and more importantly, I didn’t want to. I married her because I didn’t want to lose her.”

15. “She broke up with me because she was ready to take the next step and it wasn’t something I ever wanted. When she was gone I had a lot of clarity about how much better she made my life. I proposed a week after we got back together.”

16. “When I told her that I wasn’t ready for marriage I expected her to be hurt, upset, and probably pretty pissed off. But she was loving and supportive to me when I explained my fears. That conversation about not wanting to get married was actually what convinced I wanted to marry her.”

17. “I didn’t want to get married for the simple reason that I had not ever seen a relationship I was jealous of once I got up close. My parents and everyone in my family had shitty relationships. My friends that got married were happy at the time but after awhile I’d be spending time at their house and witness their awful fights, or just get sick of them venting to me about it. I just thought all relationships eventually got shitty. Then I started dating a girl and things never fall apart. When we had a disagreement she was respectful and kept emotion out of it for the most part, she never stopped being upbeat and supportive. I came to feel that we could make it and be the elusive happy couple I hadn’t found yet.”

18. “I met a girl who was so much better than anyone else that I’ve ever dated that when she gave me an ultimatum, I was happy to give in. It wasn’t worth losing her.”

19. “When I said I never wanted to get married I was just young. I didn’t understand that the logistics of spending your life with someone and having kids pretty much make marriage an appealing part of the equation. I grew out of it.”

20. “I wasn’t “against” marriage so much as I was on the fence about it. It wasn’t a goal I had for my life and I was just fine if it didn’t happen. Then I was dating a girl and suddenly I realized I would be devastated if we weren’t together, so I proposed.”

21. “People change. Having a partner was a not a priority at all in my 20’s, I loved being single and free and meeting new people. As I got older my values shifted, I liked having a smaller circle of close friends and I started to see that having a wife was something I wanted, so I started dating seriously.”

22. “I met someone who I could trust completely, who supports me every day, I knew without a doubt she was the person I would want to be with forever. She cancelled out all my fears about marriage.”

23. “The girl. I said all of that before I met the right girl.” TC mark

Stop Worrying About Him Texting You Back, And Start Worrying About Him Loving You Back

Posted: 09 Aug 2016 05:00 PM PDT

I don’t believe in texting. I find texting overrated. Can we really measure people’s love on the numbers of the text they sent us? My answer is no.

I don’t trust texting. I don’t believe in it. People can say many things but, in the end, what really matters is their actions, not only their words. If a bunch of words are not followed by actions, what are they be supposed to stand for?

This is why I tell you: don’t believe in texting. Believe in holding hands, in that someone who holds your hands over Sunday stroll. Believe in laughing for the same silly jokes. Believe in taking planes and going to places together. Believe in dates because time is the most important thing someone can give to you. Believe in you falling for him and in him falling for you over and over again. Believe in someone who takes a chance on you. Believe in someone who invests himself in whatever you may be building. Believe in someone who sticks around no matter what. Believe in all of this and let go.

Let go of fears, anxieties and worries. Let go of people who don’t show the fuck up. Let go of people who make you feel insecure. Let go of people who can't fit you in their busy schedule, saying there is no time. They don’t even look for it. Let go of all of the bad experiences you have had. They don’t deserve to hold you back. Let go of all of the people who don’t grow you into a better person. This is not what you’re looking for. Let go of the people who keep disappointing you. Second chances are not very likely to ever work out. Let all of this go because this is exactly what is standing between you and happiness. Not a bunch of texts. TC mark

I’m Sorry, But I Will Love You Too Much

Posted: 09 Aug 2016 04:00 PM PDT

I'm a hard person to love. And I think it's safe to say that when people are asked whether they're an easy or a hard person to love, most would say that they're the latter. That should make me feel better, for not being the only one in the world like this, but I don't. I'm not perfect, although no one is. I have my flaws, my insecurities, my issues, my worries, and I carry them around altogether in a suitcase wherever I go. And so, for all these reasons, I'm writing this letter to you, the person I'll end up with someday, to apologize in advance.

I'm sorry for being moody.
I'm sorry for not letting a week pass by without riding my mood swing. I don't like being this way but it seemed like I will always be even for all the wrong reasons. I'm sorry for getting mad at the simplest of things that you do, and I'm even more sorry for being mad at you for no particular reasons, too.

I'm sorry for getting sad and emotional most of the time, and I'm sorry for entertaining this feeling and making it worse by doing so. I'm sorry that you have to go through all these with me but I promise to be extra patient when it's your turn to be the moody one.

I'm sorry for worrying too much.
I'm sorry for worrying about a lot of things—things that normal people don't worry about, and things that I should actually be worrying about in the future. I will have anxiety attacks and will fret ten times a day, and I'm also sorry about that. I will think of my career and your career, whether we're doing well or bad, and worry about the obstacles that we have to face.

I will ask you to assure and reassure things for me. I will ask you to tell me that you love me and that you are in love with me over and over again, until I find it too cheesy that I forgot all my worries. Most of all, I will ask you to hold me when I worry because only in your arms will I find comfort.

I'm sorry for the times when I make you feel like I push you away.
I want you to know that each time I try to take a step back, it's not because I want to leave you or I want you to leave me; it's because you are too beautiful to be inside my mess. If you love me you will wait and if you truly love me you will understand.

You will understand that I may reject you but that's because it's how much I want you in my life. You will understand that I am a work in progress and part of my growth is to help myself be the person I strive to be. You will understand that I have a war inside my heart and your love is the peace that I need.

Lastly, I'm sorry but I will love you too much.
In spite all my shortcomings, this is my vow to you: I will love you with all my heart. I will love you even when I'm moody; for I may feel happy or sad or mad or extremely emotional but my greatest feeling will always be my love for you. I will love you because if there is one thing that I wouldn't worry about, it's the love that I have for you—and hopefully yours for me.

I will love you most when I try to push you away because doing so reassures our love for each other; I have so much love for you that I wouldn't be able to bear bringing you along in the storm inside me, yet you have so much love for me that you would be willing to.

For all these, more than all my apologies, I would like to thank you. Thank you for being understanding. Thank you for being patient. And thank you for being the home I always need whenever I encounter a storm. But love, know this: when the time comes that it's your turn to give me all these feelings, I will be here. I will be by your side, holding your hand, reminding you that you are loved.

I will do my best to try to save you from all the pain, and when I fail, I will still be here, taking the pain with you. I will be beside you for all the mornings and the nights—and the dusks and dawns in between—looking at your face because I know in my heart that it's the only thing in the world that I could look at without worrying about a thing.

Have Faith In God’s Plan, Wherever He May Lead You

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

— John 8:12 (NIV)

Being a Christian means having faith. Faith in the unknown. Faith in the unseen. Faith in the confusing. And faith when it counts.

Sometimes God leads us believers in strange directions. He commands us to change the life we are living, to challenge those around us, to be called to a certain place or a certain decision that we might not typically make on our own.

We get this strange feeling stirring in the deepest parts of our soul. We feel a weird, unexplainable urge to do something, sometimes something that makes absolutely no sense, yet we have this strong desire to do it—that's God calling to our hearts.

And we must answer.

God wants us to be pushed out of our comfort zones. He wants to bring us into the direction of following Him, even when (and especially when) that isn't what the world around us is doing.

Sometimes that means engaging a friend, a family member, a coworker into a conversation about Him. Sometimes that means being a more outward symbol of faith. Sometimes that can be something big, like changing your entire life to be more devoted to Him, going on a mission trip, moving to a different place to bless it with His word, or even something as big as sponsoring someone in need, or adopting a child that so desperately wishes for a family.

God's plan is sometimes crazy.

He sometimes asks us to do things that make non-believers wrinkle their noses, roll their eyes, shrug their shoulders in disbelief. He calls us to change our lives in ways that doesn't make sense. But that's the whole point.

His plan is not our plan.
And He calls us to follow Him, and to have faith.

"Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

— Galatians 5:25 (NIV)

When we are called to do something by God, we must trust in Him. And we must do it. We must put aside our fears and doubts, our negativity and the negativity of others and trust in something greater than ourselves, no matter where this may lead.

We must walk in His light and His spirit.
We must trust that He will bring us where we are meant to be.

We must not be afraid of what the world is thinking, must not be afraid of what we look like or if we are making the right decision. We must trust that God always has our best interests in mind, and though we will definitely face pain and hardship, He will forever stand by our side.

We must have faith in His plan, a plan that doesn't always make sense to our human standards, but a plan that is meant to serve others, serve Him, and bless the world around us.

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

— Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV)

He won't ever leave us or lead us astray.
He loves each and every one of us, His creation.

And if you find that He is calling you, trust Him.

His plan will change your entire life, but it will be good because He is good. This I promise. TC mark
