Grateful Unknowns

A photo of me and Alessia’s arm in Times Square circa 2016 (my bad for not letting you in on the snapchat photo. I still love you girl!). One week from today I’ll be headed back to my favorite city—> NYC 😍💯🙌🏼 I am BEYOND excited! Why an introvert like me loves that place I cannot explain, but it’s one of the few places that has my heart. For the past 5 years (including this one) I have attended the She is Free conference, and I had no idea what I would be getting myself into when I signed up that first year. The doors that opened, the friendships forged, and the ways God has provided for me to get there each and every year leave me in awe and gratefulness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

God has grown my faith so much over the years, and it’s a continual process of laying down my worries and lifting up my praises and prayers. I cannot wait to see what God will do in Huntington Beach this coming January. Whenever I feel overwhelmed about how I’ll raise all the money I need, what I’ll do after internship, and how I only have 2  1/2 months left in Hawaii (ugly crying for days)—I have to remind myself that He’s already worked it out. I don’t have to understand. I can just go. I can have peace that He sees all that I cannot, and He cares. His Word says to be anxious for nothing and to pray for everything—WITH thankfulness (Philippians 4:6-7). That means I can choose to be thankful NOW—even in the unknown.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Whatever season you are in, no matter what you are hoping for, cover it in prayer. Pray specific Bible verses over your situation (this has been so life giving for me, as it sets my heart on God’s Word and not my long winded pleas). Give it time and watch what He does.⠀⠀⠀

If you have a faith story to share and encourage others with (even if it’s unfulfilled) share it below! I’d love to hear from y’all! 💕
