Jesus is my passion – Love is my calling – Fulfilling God’s will is my purpose.

I’m humbled to be able to share a little of my heart with you. My name is Jennifer Jaquez. I’m married to my best friend of 17 yrs. We have 2 precious boys – they’re truly the most awesome little people in the JENiverse! 🌍

Why Journeys Within?
I decided to start this blog to remind myself of God’s endless grace in my life & share my thoughts on different things that I’d want to look back on someday. I thought, why not share it with others who could possibly relate and/or be blessed by it.

I believe we all have a story to tell. We’re all unique in our own special way and we can agree to have been down similar paths: pain, joy, heartbreak, happiness, hardship, breakthrough, & the list goes on. Life can hit us hard sometimes but knowing that we’re not alone makes it a little easier to roll with the punches. I believe we all have a purpose in life as human beings. There’s also purpose in everything we go through in life & I’m always comforted anytime I turn to the Word of God.

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28

Thy Will by Hillary Scott is a song that has helped put things into perspective for me. We may not understand why things happen the way they do but we can trust that God’s will is always best.

Listening to music, reading & writing are just a few of the many things I enjoy. I find them to be very therapeutic & where I find peace. In doing so, it helps me gain a new perspective on life, my circumstances, the things I’ve been through, the different seasons I have found myself in or currently finding myself in & the ones to come. It hasn’t always been a walk in the park as it may appear in the pic below. Some days have been harder than others. I have hit several rock bottoms in my lifetime but I’ve learned to embrace the journey with the understanding that I’m learning something new each day & becoming a better version of myself with every challenge I’m faced with. If any of my posts can be of any help to you – to God be the glory! πŸ™Œ

I hope to share my experiences, thoughts, real life issues, the many different resources (books, YouTube videos, blogs, devotions, songs & etc) that have encouraged me along the way – and whatever else the Lord leads me to share but most importantly my love for Christ & His endless grace in the hope to inspire others.

“We’re all broken, struggling people in need of His grace. Let His purpose for your life fall over you today, experience His freedom, know His joy, & your life will never be the same.”

I’d love to connect with you (yes, YOU!) & learn about the different journeys you’ve experienced or may currently be on. If you wish to share, you’re more than welcome to comment or email journeyswithinblog@gmail.com

Disclaimer: I am in no way, shape or form a perfect follower of Jesus Christ nor a relationship expert. I am a sinner who loves Jesus but not nearly as much as He loves you and me. However, I’ve learned a whole lot (and I’m still learning) from the MANY poor choices & WRONG turns I’ve made throughout my life and if I could help in anyway by sharing my journey with you, I will. I am beyond grateful and humbled to tell you of God’s never ending grace, His ever lasting mercy and perfect love.Β 

My hope in sharing my thoughts, perspective & experiences on this blog is to help you look within & recognize that you do not need to figure this thing called “life” on your own & that we have an amazing God who is gracious & available to help us on this journey if only we are willing to turn to Him & allow Him to lead the way. His grace is sufficient & His strength is made PERFECT in our weaknesses meaning when we are weak, He is STRONG & MIGHTY to do the “impossible”. We can come to Him just as we are and He will make us brand new. (2 Corinthians 5:17*)

My prayer is that you would turn to the One, Jesus Christ, who is waiting with open arms as you open up the door of your heart and receive Him as your Lord and Savior.Β He is the One who sacrificed (John 3:16). His life for us all so that we would receive the FREE gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8) and spend eternity basking in His Magnificence, His glory.Β Β πŸ’•πŸŒ»Β 

* This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! – 2 Corinthians 5:17

* For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son. God gave his Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life. – John 3:16

* Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved –Β Romans 10:13Β 

* For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. – Ephesians 2:8
