To all the men who choose to wait,

When you feel worthless and meaningless, may you'll be reminded that God created you for a purpose and for His glory. When you feel blue and anxious about tomorrow get rid of it, one day at a time. You don't need to have all the answers. When you feel alone, discouraged about your career, or disheartened about your struggles just pour out your heart, may you'll be reminded that God understands you. Maybe that is His way to mold you to become a good father and a great head of the family in the future.

You can always gaze upon the clouds, the moon, and the stars at night and be reminded that God works perfectly and He can do beyond things more than you ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within you. God is too great, too big, and far beyond your comprehension. Thus whenever you seek Him first He will put His desires in your heart and your paths will always intertwine -the woman you've been praying because you are both seeking His glory and grace. And God loves His children , and as you walk in obedience and in faithfulness, those little things that you are doing behind the curtains will be rewarded someday. Those patience, perseverance, self-control, and discipline while waiting. He sees them all and I know God is proud of you too.

Just as how closer you come to God and seek His presence, the closer you come to each other. It's so amazing right, it's all because of Him. It's His presence that will lead you into each other story. You're a great person too, all your effort is not in vain.

I pray that you'll always have the passion to serve like Paul, to be prayerful like Daniel, to be courageous and vulnerable like David, to be patient like Joseph, and to be strong like Samson. You are allowed to weep like Christ, to serve and to love like he always did for us. You might be still in the process of becoming that person, you're enough just the way you are and the way you exist, you're doing well, and you're already the right person. Keep in mind, your imperfections don't hinder His perfection and power over your life. Your past version doesn't have power over you or Satan's lies. Always lean and trust His promises. Let's always keep His Word in our hearts and be doers of them, and may we walk as Christ did. I know by His grace you'll be the person He intended you to become.

By His grace, you'll finish the race together.

When you’re struggling with how you look

Remember beauty is fleeting; vigor and vitality are fading. Tomorrow you will be missing one tooth, you'll have sagging skin, and your perfect posture will be crooked.

When will be my turn?

Trust Him, His grace is enough. You are not hidden, you are seen, forgiven not condemned, valued and cherished not blemished, redeemed and honored not overlooked, pursued and loved by the lovers of souls, covered by His blood and healed in Jesus Name.

Hey little women,

The waiting season can feel long, but it might be a time for you to grow and blossom beautifully: to develop a closer relationship with God before others, to fully give your heart to Jesus before others, and to expand your horizon by taking a leap of faith.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
