I won’t stop, I won’t mess my groove up cus I already how this thing goes


This is how you lose her.

You lose her when you forget to remember the little things that mean the world to her: the sincerity in a stranger’s voice during a trip to the grocery, the delight of finding something lost or forgotten like a sticker from when she was five, the selflessness of a child giving a part of his meal to another, the scent of new books in the store, the surprise short but honest notes she tucks in her journal and others you could only see if you look closely.

You must remember when she forgets.

You lose her when you don’t notice that she notices everything about you: your use of the proper punctuation that tells her continuation rather than finality, your silence when you’re about to ask a question but you think anything you’re about to say to her would be silly, your mindless humming when it is too quiet, your handwriting when you sign your name in blank sheets of paper, your muted laughter when you are trying to be polite, and more and more of what you are, which you don’t even know about yourself, because she pays attention.

She remembers when you forget.

You lose her for every second you make her feel less and less of the beauty that she is. When you make her feel that she is replaceable. She wants to feel cherished. When you make her feel that you are fleeting. She wants you to stay. When you make her feel inadequate. She wants to know that she is enough and she does not need to change for you, nor for anyone else because she is she and she is beautiful, kind and good.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her

"Don’t let pride keep you from genuine reconciliation. And that’s where death comes in, isn’t it? Death to our pride."

Anne Graham Lotz

"It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important."

"There are prayers that walk with God, prayers that fight with God, prayers that dance with God, and prayers that are held by God. In all those things, we are with God, communicating and dealing with what is on our hearts; but He is always present in all our talks with Him. That is why prayer is so powerful and wonderful, because we have an opportunity to be with God like we have never been before. We get to commune with Christ, rest with Christ, wrestle with Christ, dance with Christ, and ultimately be with God! Beloved, take your heart, whether it be filled with joy, pain, sorrow, anger, or simply apathy, and go before Christ so that He may renew you with Himself."
