"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God, which surpasses all comparison shall guard your hearts and minds in Jesus Christ."

Phillippians 4:6-7

When you crave more, look internally and ask yourself if what you crave is to further His kingdom or to celebrate His creation. What do you crave more of? Does it root back to love?

The Blessing of Patience

"Life is not measured by our breaths, but by the moments that take our breath away."

 Every season in life brings forth new opportunities to grow and learn.  Recently I have been realizing the little things. I think this is because now that I am graduated, I am not constantly thinking about the next event or exam or meeting planned in the day. Even with my full-time internship and little side projects I have down time (a perviously unknown concept.) In this season of my life I am learning patience...something I literally have been praying for since 3rd grade. Coming out to live in California alone for this internship has not only been a blessings but an answered prayer!

Patience is such a beautiful thing because it bridges the gap between present and future. Also, patience is such a wonderful expression of love. Every day that I grow more and more patient is a day that I see myself becoming a stronger young woman in Christ. <3

Blessed by an Answered Prayer,
