Breanna. Learning to love and be loved from the One who is Love.
Grace carried me here,
and by Grace I’ll carry on.

Things I will get to do when I graduate:
ARE YOU KIDDING YES I WANNA GET MARRIED
I have struggled a lot to be fully satisfied with God alone. It is only by God’s grace and love that He matures me and brings me to a place where I can be satisfied in Him alone., And nothing compares to that. Nothing ever compares. And I think even when we do get married, we should still find our full satisfaction in God, not in our spouse or family. We should always look to Him to be our all. He satisfies.
I have always had the desire to get married and have a family. Even when I was younger, I wanted to have a family and be a mom and be someone’s wife. I just get pumped thinking about what a blessing and gift that would be from God! But it’s in God’s hands.
Like, the fact that I could say and completely mean everything I said in this post is a testimony of the grace God has given me in singleness to submit and surrender my desires to Him. When you know God, you know He is good and faithful, and you can trust Him. I have faith His plans are greater than my plans and I want His will over mine. I would give up my desires to have His desires, because I love Him more than my own life. His love is better than life!!
So, I’d say the desire has always been there- but my desire for God’s will, way, and ultimately for Him to be glorified in my life no matter how that looks or what the cost is what matters most to me. I want what He desires more.
Your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven."
- Matthew 6:10
