[[Define Ideals]]

And I know I absorbed cynicism, fear, and doubt, in high school, the way I absorbed sunshine, dirt, and sweat at eight.

I sometimes become acutely aware of how jaded I really am.

Dostoyevsky wrote “Destroy my desires, eradicate my ideals, show me something better, and I will follow you.” And that would be my prayer as I leave this part of my life behind me. God, show me something better, and I will follow you.

About Emily

I am Emily. I am nothing, Jesus is everything. "My hope is found in nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness." In the ashes there is healing and my worthless, charred remains have been covered by His beautiful, redemptive grace.
