Walking Alongside my Creator

seeking green pastures
striving for His glory
realizing my calling
being in His grace
loving on His people
doing my tasks
resting in His love
desiring for more than I could ever dream of

The name is Jae. I'm a Christian, a Senior at Boston College. Trying to be a teacher.
Don't know where I'll end up next May
but trying to trust in His will, regardless of what may happen.

Not always easy. Not always hard. But you make the most of it

i think the fact that i dont feel comf with my girl cousins and only with my guy cousins, that just hit me how much it stings today. 

Wow, I am so selfish. 

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart

I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul,
Healer of my scars

You steady my heart

So I’ve decided that I’m too much of a spendthrift. 

I’m going on a spending freeze on non-necessities for a month. I’m going to hammer it down and really solidify it soon. This will show me to better with money. 

It should be an honor to discover your heart—something that takes time and patience. Discovering your heart should require diligence that delights in the process of learning you. Even though it’s poetic, you are not a novel to be read and finished—no! You are a journey to be taken, and though this might seem equally poetic, it requires a lot more integrity, devotion, and intention. Guarding our hearts means that we don’t present ourselves as a mystery to be decoded or a challenge to be conquered. Instead, we share our lives and learn to love each other along the way regardless of what we find. Guard your heart so that whoever wants to know it has to first invest in the trip before they get to see the breath-taking view.
Practically speaking, a life that is vowed to simplicity, appropriate boldness, good humor, gratitude, unstinting work and play, and lots of walking, brings us close to the actually existing world and its wholeness.

God’s purposes for your season do not often lie as an answer in the form of an end result. He is more concerned with our remaining calm and faithful to the process itself where He Himself is the answer.
Know that the more you feed a craving, the louder it will demand another bite. So choose which cravings to satisfy and which ones to starve because this is what carves you into who you are becoming.
My wants are simple: a job that I like and a guy whom I love.
