Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

The Sun will Come Out Tomorrow: Proverbs 18:16

"A man's gift makes room for him, 
And brings him before great men." 

Proverbs 18:16

I don't know what you're going through right now, but I want to take this time to speak positivity into your life. God sees what you are going through. He knows whatever pain you feel. He also knows the desires of your heart. And I promise you that, no matter how things appear, He is working on your behalf. Because, there long as you continue to do your part and trust Him, there is nothing God will bring you to that He will not bring you through. Trust that your gifts are making room for you. And if it feels like they aren't, know that God did not make you to break. 

You are resilient. You are loved. You are not alone. You are going to grow through this. 

Things will be looking up. Your gift is making room for you. Sit back, and let God work. 

I know, it's so much easier said than done. I've been there. This time last year- really from February to November of 2014 was one of the darkest periods I've ever been through in my life. I walked around with what felt like a gray cloud over my head. But, I had to go through breaking up with my ex-boyfriend, looking for love in all of the wrong places, and doubting myself personally, professionally, academically to be able to sit here and type this today. I own that period. I own my mistakes. In fact, I'm proud of them. I don't regret anything that happened. I don't regret any decisions I made. I don't believe that I would be who I am today without having made any of them, without having messed up a few times, without having cried in my best friends lap about my breakup, without having said things I shouldn't of and jeopardizing relationships, without questioning whether or not I was qualified for everything I wanted to pursue, without involving myself with guys I never should've because I was lonely and wanted to feel wanted, I wouldn't be here, strong, standing in the sun today. Darkness truly does give way to light. And I know it's hard, but I'm asking you, I'm imploring you to keep going- keep trusting, keep hoping, keep working. Because the world needs you and you were not created to fail. 

Sometimes we have to be "broken" to grow. But, really, we don't break. We're being molded by the clay maker into beautiful pottery. But, that molding process hurts. Going through a kiln? NOT FUN. Is it worth it in the end though? YES, one hundred and ten percent, YES. 

So, even though you can't see it right now, I'm asking you believe with me that the sun is coming out. Things are in the process right now, as you read these words, of getting better for you. The Universe is bombarding heaven on your behalf. Your gifts are making room for you. Sit back and take stock of that - so that when the sun does begin to shine again, you can appreciate the light. Don't rush the process. You can't force the sun to shine. And sometimes you just have to learn to sit with your stuff, and really understand the good, bad, and ugly about who you are. So that you understand your soul better. For it is through this understanding, that God will move- that God is moving. Things will be looking up... the sun will be coming out soon.
