the beauty of tomorrow.

life. I sit here day-after-day and type out my aspirations, my loves, my desires, my dreams - my life. after the sparking of my revolution, I attempt to pen the true and honest musings of my heart in my writings, yet times like this, it slips through my fingers. life goes by, time flits away quietly. I don't expect anything of great excitement to come to past, but I do not know what I am expecting at all. my ambition in blogging is to be honest to you and the person God made me to be, but life at the moment seems unreal, faraway. dreams fade, inspiration dwindles. and some posts cannot be cheerful and "picture perfect" as most are.                                                                                              

it rains outside. I often forget. some days must be dark and dreary. life isn't perfect. it's beautiful - indeed, there are so many beautiful details in this everyday life. but it's definitely not perfect.    
I hate change - transitions seem to shake the very core of my being. yet they seem inescapable. people change, my heart breaks. life changes, my mind swirls. the world seems to grow dim. busyness becomes a constant companion and turns into an enemy. life feel like mere motions. I am exhausted by going through them and want to cry, but I have no more tears to shed. and the quiet moments hurt the most.  

joy comes in the morning. but God is always there. through times like this I know HE is drawing me nearer to Him. I just have to keep my head up, and wait for tomorrow.

  3. Oh, you have no idea how much i can relate. we seem to be on a lot of the same wavelengths... i hope that didn't sound odd ;)

    Love ~*Chantelle*~

  5. Grace, I love your posts. Just remember - you can turn any change into an adventure! Try to experience new things through your transitions.


  6. I will be praying for you, m'dear!


  7. Grace,

    I know what you mean. But remember what the bible says, "there is a time for everything..."
    In Christ,

  8. Yes! Joy comes in the morning! His mercies, too, are new every morning!

    Continuing to pray for you,
    Camille <3

  9. My heart achs for you. I donot know what is going on in your life but one thing I have learned through trials. All things work together to good to them that love God. He wil not fail you even if all the world does.

  10. I will be praying for you, dear! Change is not easy to accept. I hate change. I was just talking to my mom about the change I was noticing in a friend of mine and I started crying. It hurts sometimes. And yet, sometimes there is something exciting with change. I've learned to change my perspective (although I still have relapses to the old!) that instead of looking at it as 'change', to instead look at it of another opportunity that God is giving me to go and do something for Him! It's tough and I don't do it all the time.. wish I did, but I'm not perfect. :) I love you, Keeper of the Garden! :) And, perhaps that could be a wonderful perspective, too. Every flower starts with a bud. And it has to change to become something more beautiful.

    With love,

  15. Dear Grace,

    I just came across this post on your blog, and found it to truly resonate in my heart at this time... often I feel that same way (actually right now this is how I feel), and it can be really hard to find meaning, to find joy and peace in life when it is rushing by like a whirlwind, when the busyness and rush of our lives steal the precious moments of joy and tears at the feet of our Lord, steal the precious moments of life! But oh, what joy is there, in realizing that HE is the source of all our joys, peace and hope. He is our all in all, and oh, if only we may cling to Him and trust Him in those times of dryness and darkness "of rain and cloud", we will know that His love is unchanging, that joy (in His Presence) is forevermore...

    "You will show me the path of life, in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." Psalm 16: 11

    In His love,
    Joy @
