“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” ~ Rom. 12:12
As I introduce myself, there are some ground rules we need to cover. I am not perfect, and I am not going to pretend to be. I started this blog to reach other young ladies my age to help, as well as, encourage them through their lives.
As a senior in high-school, I am 17 years of age and I am proud believer in my Lord Jesus Christ. With great passion I can say I belong to a lovely family, whom I love dearly. My interest are the following: bible journalism, spending time with my family and friends, shopping (mostly at Home Goods and Target), decorating rooms, organizing, baking, and eating around the dinner table with my family.
In just 4 short months, I will be graduating high-school and pursuing my career in elementary education. Through watching my mother in her classroom, helping her plan lessons, and watching the amount of love she pours into their lives is how I found my career. When I walk into her classroom hearing all the little voices saying, “Miss Addy, Miss Addy!” just helps confirm my calling. I wish to help start their education while planting the seed of success.
My favorite quote, stated at the top, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer,” is how I try to live my life. This verse comes from the book of Romans in chapter 12, where God is explaining us to how we should live our lives. I get a lot out of this verse between hope, affliction, and prayer. At first I thought to myself, “oh my, this verse is all over the place,” but then I broke it down. In life we are often going to seem hopeless, when God is there to give us hope and joy. The only true joy comes from God, and through Him we can have hope. Though when we have hope, we will often have affliction and it is hard to stay faithful in trusting God, but through prayer and patience good things can happen. I often jump to conclusions, and when I think of ideas I want them done immediately. Though this verse states that with joy, patience, and faith life can be much easier, we just have to trust in God.
I look forward to sharing my lifestyle, fashion, struggles, and adventures with y’all. There are going to more interesting facts about myself in my upcoming blogs, so stay tuned. Also,please fill free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have.
With love❤, Addy Faye
