Wordy Wednesday: Faith

wordy wednesday 0 comments by

Despite my gratitude for all the blessings I’ve seen in such a short amount of time, I’m the busiest and most stressed that I’ve ever been, and what I need more than anything right now is faith in myself to be the person that I know I can be and faith in God to give me the strength to become that person.

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”
– Saint Augustine
