    I came across your blog , randomly on tumblr. I havent opened tumblr in ages. I've just recently broken up with my bf. Youd think the person who does the break up is fine. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I cry every night and even I break down through the day hiding in bathrooms. Its been way tough. And then today I read "what I learned about being a whole when I was a half" I felt as if you're talking about me and my my endless stories with relationships and heart breaks. I believe god helped me somehow read this. Thank you.. it gave me hope for a better future and strength to take time to heal and not jump into things. This isnt a question obviosuly heh . Just thank you ❤ I'm one of your biggest fans now and exploring your blog!

      Wow!! I am so overwhelmed by this message! I definitely can relate--break ups are the wooorst. Taking time to heal is so important! I've really been digging in to scripture and asking Jesus what it means for him to be the lover of my soul and valentine, and wow has he been revealing that to me! His love really is better than any guy and any relationship, and I am so excited for you to receive that revelation as well!! It is so life changing. 🙂 Thank you for sending this message! It really encouraged me! ❤️
  • Someone asked:
    Do you believe in the pre-tribulation rapture?
    • Tailah replied:
      Hey! Great question! I'm actually super skeptical about the rapture in general! I don't necessarily want to write it off, but there is no clear mention of it in scripture, the whole idea of a rapture is an interpretation that became widespread in the 19th century. This interpretation is commonly taken from 1 Thessalonians 4, "For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever." This scripture does say that we will be taken up, but there is no indication whether this is before a tribulation, and does not mention what happens to non-believers. They could be left on earth, or they could be sent to judgement. We don't know. I think movies and books like "Left Behind" really dramatize this interpretation and often times make it more about entertainment than biblical accuracy. I personally learn more towards the second coming and the "rapture" all happening at the same time. When Jesus comes back, the dead will be raised and we will all be sent to judgement (1 Corinthians 15:51–53, 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18). Scripture is clear that as the end draws near, disasters, wars, famine, etc. will happen. I personally don't think the earth can last that much longer the way we are polluting it. The way our nation, along with other nations are divided by propaganda, racism, hatred, and violence is congruent with scripture describing the latter days. howEVER I do understand the argument for a pre-tribulation rapture. It makes sense--if God's people (and more importantly) the Holy Spirit get taken up, it would make complete sense that the world would then be thrown into chaos once The Lord's presence is taken from it. However, at the end of the day, these are all theories. I don't think it is wise to dwell heavily on eschatology to the point of worrying, because these books are written in prophetic languages and codes. I don't believe anyone has the perfect interpretation or understanding. In fact, Matthew 24:36 says, "However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows." Jesus doesn't even know when the end is! I believe the only thing we should concern ourselves with, is living in such a way that we are confident we will be ready to go with Him when He does come. xx
