one of my biggest struggles is learning to laugh without fear of the future. learning to find joy in the mundane + wilderness of life. God has brought me through some pretty stressful + lonely seasons, only to show me that He’s all that I need, all that can satisfy. change is really hard for me, it’s really hard for my soul + really hard for my mind. it’s hard for me to not live in the same city as my best friends + my family. it’s hard for me to see others having the time of their life while I’m stuck in school. but I know that God lays out His plans for us. He has given us a path, which WILL bring joy in the face of loneliness, and He has called us to seek Him with all that we are, + when we do, we find Him (jer. 29:14) and finding Him is synonymous with finding peace, joy, grace, patience, and endless, abounding love. so, whatever season you’re in, whatever mountain or valley you’re facing, seek Him earnestly, and He will meet you where you are. and He will carry you, hold you, + love you immensely. » thanks for reading my vulnerable post.
