During this past Thanksgiving weekend, I took time to reflect, journal, and think about how these last few months have been changing my life forever. I kept asking myself whether I am truly living a life worthy of His call. And my loudest prayer now is that 2Thessalonians 1:11-12 could be manifested in the last weeks that I have at EMI and throughout my life. How was your thanksgiving?
I spent time reflecting on what it took for me to get where I am today, the people the Lord placed in my life to believe in this call, the mentors that are helping me figure out the way I should go; the church family I am a part of that never stopped supporting & encouraging me..and of course you who are reading this that gave, lifted me up in prayer, influenced my life in one way or another, and are still eager to learn how this discovery journey is going. It is nearly the end of this internship and I truly can not thank you enough. I am so blessed to have you in my life, I am grateful.
So for an update about my journey of discovering architecture as a ministry: it has truly not by power, nor by strength, it has only been by the Holy Spirit and His grace & mercy through people like you. Thank you for being you!
To say the least, the cost has been great, and I keep realizing more pieces as I go. However, it has definitely been worth it! I'm finding myself in need of giving myself so much more grace, constantly surrendering myself to God, while spending time in worship to keep my eyes on Him so I can keep a smile on. But with the help of my pastor, mentors, friends, and family's prayer I've been able to intentionally strive to live the present and count my blessings rather than being frustrated about the future. I love doing architecture with Jesus!
