Welcome to Journeys Within! 🤗💞
Hiii!! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m humbled to be able to share a little of my heart with you. My name is Jennifer Jaquez. On July 16, 2016, I married my best friend of almost 16 years. I still get a kick out of saying, “my huzzzzbin”. I look forward to sharing our testimony on here soon & when I do, you’ll understand the reason behind my excitement & praise. 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! 🙌
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 have stories to tell, stories that provide wisdom about the journey of life. What more have we to give one another than our ‘truth’ about our human adventure as honestly & as openly as we know how?”
“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 email@example.com –
Disclaimer: I am in no way, shape or form a relationship expert nor do I ever want to come off as if I know it all because clearly I do not. However, I’ve learned a whole lot from the MANY poor choices & WRONG turns I’ve made throughout my life as I’m sure many of us have. 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 & how 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 have His 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”. 💕🌻
