I would be a pomegranate. It looks so normal & simple on the outside,
but inside, it’s filled with happy surprises!”

W O W.

Life has been a blur these past months. In all honesty, I think I’ve been neglecting a lot of things.. my workouts, QT at times, job search, etc. In the past month, we’ve sent off about 4-5 coworkers to bigger and better jobs. As our team gets smaller, the workload gets bigger.. (but of course!) I’m falling into a cycle of work, eating, sleeping, work, eating, sleeping. 

Lord, please give me the strength and determination to live my life glorifying you. Even as work will become undoubtedly harder and days will be longer, Lord, I pray that I am not caught up in the work culture and difficulties, and instead stay true to myself as Your daughter. I will stumble and fall, but I pray that I can stand back up and move forward. Let me be motivated and driven and do what needs to be done, not being idle and lazy and becoming a sloth. Lord, I pray that I seek you first and foremost each day - about my own “happiness”, my own sinful desires. I pray that I can see what needs to be worked on and repent, giving thanks to You each and every day.

Lord, I pray for this month .. that You may open whatever doors that need to be opened, and close ones that need to be closed. Guide my thoughts and decisions, and keep me going on the path towards You.


april showers

Good morning lovely friends! It’s crazy to think that we’re already well on our way into April - time F L I E S.

It’s been an interesting few weeks/months. I’ve started developing a love-hate relationship with my job, to be honest. I try not to complain, but in reality, I’m complaining so much in my mind. Each day has been the same - I get up in the morning, head into the office and dream of days when the workload is reasonable. I’ve gone from eight hour workdays.. to almost pulling 11+ hours everyday. I’m wondering.. am i just not working quickly enough, or is there too much work? The ambiguity is slowly breaking me down…

I know that for most people, their first “real job” is one that is tedious, busywork, etc. - I kind of see it, as if I’m “paying my dues” as I slowly build up experience. But I can’t help wishing for the next step already, the next opportunity.

Oh Lord, please forgive me of my selfishness. A year ago, I was striving so hard for a job opportunity and now that I have one.. I’m desiring for more and more. Maybe it’s time for me to move on and maybe it isn’t, but I pray that I go about it not in a sense to glorify myself, but to glorify You. Each and every day of this month, I pray that I am encouraged and motivated solely by God and that I depend on Him for strength. Because truly, truly I can’t do this alone.

April showers bring May flowers. I feel like I’ve been walking through so many showers these past days, but all the more reason for me to cling to our loving God. Here’s to a new month!
