Jennifumblr.

Ask me anything   What I know, what I feel, what I like, what I'm learning and where I wish to visit--you can find here. My life is currently in the midst of being transformed by God through his grace and love. I'm Jennifer.

Now that all my tests are done-

It is time for more investing in relationships, more running, less spending, more saving, less stress, more self discovery.

Let go of what was, and begin what will be. I love new seasons for the reminder they are a fresh start into something new. This past season was a challenge in almost every way and pushed me to strive harder and be better and learn from my mistakes and get up from my failures. I definitely know my weaknesses but just as importantly, I know of my strengths and limits.

As much as I am grateful for where I am now and what this summer has taught me, I know this season will be so much better.

The journey may be more worth it than the destination but days like these I wish I could fast forward through the bullshit to see what actually will happen.

stop leaving the door open

to keep leaving."

"But I also knew that one day, I would grow up. One day, I would be twenty, or thirty, or forty, even fifty and sixty and seventy and eighty and maybe even one hundred years old. And all those years were mine, they belonged to nobody but me. So even if I was unhappy now, it could all change tomorrow. Maybe I didn’t even need to jump off the cliff to experience that kind of freedom. Maybe the fact that I knew such a freedom existed in the world meant that I could someday find it."

I know you could make me happy and treat me well. But, also knowing you could make me feel like this repeatedly, the idea of being with you is an idea that I want to entertain less and less.

"God is shaping us, even in our doubts.

That’s what God does though, He takes us to the brink until we are shattered, then He picks us up and rebuilds us. It is a sweet breaking, one that leaves us more dependent than ever, but more loved and cherished than we thought.

I am learning to praise God, even when He is silent; what a blessing it is."

Maybe I need to start coming to terms with the fact that some situations aren’t going to work no matter how much I hope or want them to work out.

I’m becoming so engrossed in the present and forget to pause and look at the big picture and how this fits. Why am I trying to still dig through these shattered pieces? I’m thinking there’s still something there beyond what already exists. Sometimes I don’t know when to relent, which can be both a good and bad thing. I don’t know why I try to find the good in things sometimes because it ends up hurting me more than if I just left it alone.

Some things are just not meant to be and the hardest part for me, I’m learning, is accepting that reality.

Currently lying on my couch and thinking about how this point last year was so different than right now. I remember more than I should or need to.

Life is weird to me.
