Je m'appele Rachel W. Bradley. I live in Seattle. My desire is for Europe.
I'm a follower of Jesus. I'm a traveler of the world. I'm a dreamer of all things dreamy.
My favorite thing

O for the day I will set my eyes upon the land.
O for the day I will abandon all I've ever known
O for the day I will set my feet upon the sand
O for the day I will finally be home

“"The parts

of me that are on fire can’t
put the parts of you that are on fire out. ” This is so brilliant. Would be very easy to stick the Gospel in here and see that we, as broken people, cannot fix one another. We need one that is not on fire.”

—   Allison Titus, from “Modern Romance” (via the-final-sentence)
and we can pray that Jesus changes and heals our minds so we don’t have to remember or have shame or guilt 

“Her heart was a secret garden and the walls were very high.”

—   William Goldman, The Princess Bride (via withnotombstone)

“It’s exhausting loving someone
who is constantly running away.”

—   Megan Falley, from “What the Hour Hand Said to the Minute Hand” (via fleurishes)

You are

Well maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
And we’ve got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face
And I’ve always lived like this keeping a comfortable distance..

And up until now I had sworn to myself that I’m content with loneliness…Because non of it was ever worth the risk

Well you are the only exception.. 

And I’m on my way to believing

…”And before I realized it, this simple cup of espresso had become the means to a path into her soul.” 
My christianity has become anorexic. 
Denying myself and staying away from things that would hurt my heart; idols that I could worship. 
But in return, I do not feed my soul what it needs. Like being on a diet where you deny yourself foods that would be bad for you, but you also don’t allow yourself to eat what is good for you. You starve yourself and then punish yourself for feeling hunger. And because you are hungry you are easily tempted into wanting to eat what is bad for you; but still you suffer all the more because you don’t give in.
I need to feed my soul what it needs: Jesus. 
 “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” matt 4:4
