alyssaclarisse There is an overwhelming amount of desperation in the human condition. We so fiercely want to be loved, want that connection, want that ONE PERSON, want that unicorn that we hold people to expectations they could literally never meet and then we become hurt when they don’t ever meet them. We were wired for love, for relationship, for connection…but with our creator God FIRST. He created us out of His longing for relationship. We are designed to love Him wholly, place Him above all else, and then allow human relationships and feelings to come into play centered around a mutual love and pursuing of Him. He is the greatest love, He is the one who laid his life down for the world he loved. Why do you keep rejecting him? Why do you keep cheapening his sacrifice? Why do you insist on worshipping the created instead of the creator? The sky is still the sky if another person leaves or hurts you y’all. The ocean is still the ocean and the days will still pass and maybe you need to reevaluate the importance you place on human level relationships and start looking to God to complete and heal you as only He can. #Godcentered #greatestlove #rethinkyourpriorities #john15 1d

alyssaclarisse “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” #alwayspursuing #flourishinginHim 3d

alyssaclarisse Matthew 26:36-39 // This piece of scripture has been on my heart lately, and it brings me to tears when I contemplate the reality of what is being said. When we think about Jesus, we think about God in the flesh. We think about a man who showed unbiased kindness, healed the sick, and gave his life on the cross because he so loved the world. What we don't think of as often is that Jesus was a man, a sinless man, but a man nonetheless. He was tempted in every way we still are today in order to be empathetic. In this scripture in particular the weight of all the world's sins, the shame, the guilt, the regret, the consequences overwhelmed his soul and crushed him. He tells Peter that he is sorrowful and troubled, he begs and pleads with God to change His will. His flesh does not want to continue to the cross, He does not want to be a sacrifice, but even in that moment of desperation he submits to Gods will. He doesn't fight, He doesn't argue...He simply prays. Whenever I'm facing something that feels overwhelming, I think about Jesus, God in the flesh, crying out in desperation with tears in His eyes for His Heavenly Father to let him free of his mission and I remember anything I bring to Him, He understands and gives us the best example of how to deal with these situations; pray. Pray once, pray twice, pray again, and then submit to Gods will knowing He has the ultimate plan for your life. #prayer #matthew26 #scripture #TheWord 3d

alyssaclarisse My heart is so heavy and there is an anger growing deep inside of me over the fact that the Taliban is using the name of God to justify slaughtering innocent children. Our creator God who breathed life into us, who loves us, who has a home for us, and knows us intimately. Our creator God who should be the source of comfort and relief in situations like this has been twisted by religion into something dark and perverse. These murderers charged a school full of children yelling "God is great", marring everything He is and everything He came to do here. As a mother I don't know how to process that 132 children went to school and never came home. I feel helpless, I feel broken over the state of our world, and I feel desperate for God to intervene in the mess. All I can do is trust in Him, pray hard and long, hold my sweet boy close, and be intensely grateful for EVERY SECOND I'm blessed with. Jesus I know these children are with you now and you're loving on them and there is no longer pain or suffering with you. Please hold their parents close to your heart in this time of mourning, and please help end the fighting and brutality in this region of the world. They desperately need the truth, step in and combat their man made religions, step in and show them the awesome power of the one true God. #prayforpeshawar 4d

alyssaclarisse It's not even 8:30pm and my house is a mess, but I'm snuggled in bed between a snoring tiny human and a purring cat and my heart is beyond full. My life is small, quiet, and absolutely blessed by God with an abundance of love. I wouldn't change a thing. #youremyheartkid #tooblessedtobestressed 5d

alyssaclarisse Our culture justifies sin. It tells us that as long as we're happy we can do what we want. It creates loopholes for sin to crawl into our lives and it allows us to feel okay it about it. Our culture tells us we're good people and as long as we try to do good, we're fine. It justifies sex before marriage, drug abuse, excessive drinking, pornography, gossiping, and lying because EVERYBODY'S DOING IT. If you are truly a believer, if God has convicted your heart he will take it, wreck it, and change it to the point of no return. You will still struggle with sin and temptation, but you will feel the weight of it and feel the consequence heavier than you ever have. I will always sin, but the realness of the sacrifice Jesus made for me does not escape me and I will repent repent repent and beg for Gods help in attacking that sin and moving forward. I've heard people call Christians "holier than thou", but at that point I would doubt you're interacting with someone who has a true relationship with Jesus. A real heart level understanding of what God did for us brings you to your knees with humility, it shows you your darkest, and it reveals that you are no good apart from Him. As Matt Chandler says, church is a really lame hobby. Why would you sacrifice true godliness for the appearance of godliness? #Christian #Christinanity #mattchandler #Godcentered #humility #graceupongrace #reevaluate 6d

alyssaclarisse I am a woman living by grace. I have a history of failure, sin, and brokenness. I am continually tempted by the world, and I will time and time again stumble and fall. I am not perfect, I will never be perfect, and I have a lifetime of growth to go through on my walk with God. I do not think I'm better than anyone, but I do think different people find themselves at different places in their journey. As a Christian, it's my duty to love them where they're at but help them to not stay there. Life is all about progression and forward motion. I am also allowed to have standards in the relationships and friendships I pursue and cultivate. Setting boundaries and drawing lines for what I will and will not tolerate in my life is not judgmental, it's necessary for my well-being and the goals I have. My heart has been wrecked by the Lord and he's continuing to gospel it every day in the way I should go, and I'm forever thankful for his intervention and unending love. #Godcentered #flourishinginHim #neverperfect #alwayspursuing 7d
