Worth the Wait

Hey there, love.

I know, you're tired. Your mind is in a million different places right now. Just listen to me for a second.

You.

Are.

Worth.

So.

Much.

And I know that you're constantly fighting and it feels like the world is about to crush you and you don't think you'll ever live up to everybody's expectations. And sometimes, you just want to settle. You don't want to keep fighting. It's exhausting. So you want to settle.

Please. Please please please please please please.

Don't.

You are worth so much more. Please, don't settle. Don't settle for that mediocre life that you're just ready to fall into. Don't settle for that person who you know darn well is not good enough for you, but hey, he likes you a lot and he's kind of cute, so why not, right?

Please.

Don't.

I cannot even begin to tell you how difficult it is to watch someone that you love settling for something when you know that they deserve so much better. Allow me to let you in on a little secret.

God has so much better in store for you. 

And maybe you can't see that right now. I get it. But He does. He has such an amazing plan for you. I get that the waiting is hard. But it's worth it. 

Don't settle now for something mediocre when you could end up with something amazing later.

Trust me.

It's gonna be worth the wait.

  6. Sometimes I'm scared of the future, because I have trouble seeing past visions of that mediocre life of good-enough and simply surviving. But I'm working to find how I can live, actually LIVE, and fulfill my dreams for God's glory. Thank you for your encouraging words, Grace. :)

  11. Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, keeping big our eyes on he prize that we may not grow weary and lose heart. (Hebrews 12 from my memory, so it's slightly off.)

    YES YES TESMFKAMALDJSNXL

    You are so right. I've been feeling it too, the temptation to settle for the east, sure way. But God has so much more marked out for us. It is hard. It is ling. And it is wonderful.

    Let us not give up

    Thank you so much for your encouragement and sweat heart?

    You are worth it, Grace. God has deemed you worth it. Oh, how marvelous!

    1. OH HOW I LOVE HEBREWS 12!!! <3

      It's so easy to want to settle. It's so much harder to keep fighting, but oh how it is so worth it. Waiting can be so difficult, but the most beautiful things always come from seasons of waiting.

      You are such an encouragement to me, Hannah. Oh how I love you. <3
