Hi all! I disappeared from the blogging scene for a while because I had several projects to work on — mostly photography-related. God’s been great! I scored a few photo gigs over the last couple weeks and celebrated my birthday two weekends ago with my loved ones. I also signed up for The Color Run in August, took up contemporary dance classes and volunteered to teach kids on Saturdays. It’s been a very exciting and productive month and I can’t believe that July is almost here!
In the midst of all these changes, I’ve come to realize how desperately I need God in my life. Yes, good things are happening but there are also certain blanks in my life that I’ve been struggling to fill. I read this quote this morning and it hit me like a ton of bricks.
You continue to get your heart broken because you are holding the pen of your life and trying to write your own story. I am the Author of true love. I am the Creator of Romance. I know your heart’s every desire. I want to script a beautiful take just for you, but first you must give the pen to Me. You must let Me become the center of your existence. You must let Me have total control over your love life, and every other area of your life as well.
I need Him in so many aspects of my life. I can’t do this on my own. My career, my goals, my relationships, my dreams. There are so many things that are beyond my control right now, and I’ve decided to just let them go and let God be who He is — the author of my life. If He starts something, He will see it to completion.
And if you’re going through something similar, I’d like to encourage you to just surrender all these uncertainties to Him and let Him take over. After all, His plans are always far better than the ones you have for yourself.
Have a blessed week ahead, wherever you are!
