I’ve been putting off this blog post because well… even as I write, I feel like I have nothing to write… sunset + roof-3886Nothing encouraging to say…

Nothing to give.

I feel both physically and spiritually spent. In all honestly, May had been one hell of a month. LITERALLY. IT’S. BEEN. HELL. So much so, that I could possibly be packing my bags and heading back to the dirty of South Carolina. Yes… you read correctly: I could be leaving the city in just a few days. sunset + roof-3901But there’s just one thing… I have this enigmatic feeling, down deep in my gut, in my spiritman, that God’s not done with me here just yet.

I can’t explain the feeling of wonder and apprehension that I’m currently experiencing, you’ll have to live through a stretch of faith to really understand. However, I will say that this has me on the edge of hope and admitted defeat. Breakthrough and a total breakdown.sunset + roof-3946sunset + roof-3955I know I’m usually here to spread inspiration, but this is me, with very little to give.

Don’t get me wrong, yes, my faith had been stretched but God has been placing little miracles on my path for the last month and now it’s time for them to come to fruition. These last few days of the month will be the countdown to my testimony.

I stand in the knowledge that God will not and has not left me in all of this; even in my darkest moments, I have been met with His overwhelming and unexplainable peace. So, that’s what I have to rest in. I am still encouraged that my situation can turn around in an instant and by the time June comes around, I know I’ll have a testimony to share with you all. sunset + roof-3910But I wanted to write this now, in the midst of the storm for my personal reference and to show you all that even though everything is not all peachy keen in the world of Aley Arion, God is still faithful.

Hmmm… I guess I did have something to write…

when i first set out to create my blog, i just wanted an outlet to balance my mundane college schedule. but over the years, it has become so much more. writing is how i process my world & the events that take place within it. through aleyarion.com, i seek to help my fellow 20-somethings, like me, working to find light when their paths seem darkened and learn from my mistakes so i can save you the trouble of repeating them. aleyarion.com is witty, vulnerable, and transparent, but most importantly, it's me, unapologetically. peace, peace, peace Aley Arion business inquiries: aleyarion@gmail.com

  1. Just stumbled on this post… a bit late but then again, right on time. Boy, how our God works in mysterious ways. This post is where I am currently; I get every word. Thank you for reminding me that God is definitely bigger than any circumstance.

    Thanks for sharing and being transparent 💪🏽

    1. hey girl, hey! thank you so much for your notes, I’m so glad you stumbled here lol 😊whatever it is that you’re going though, know that God is making a way for you, even if it doesn’t come in the form you imagined. a little update from this post is that I did end of having to move back home, but God has been so faithful during this time & has shown me that I needed to be here for a reason (even tho I still don’t know what it is lol) but I encourage you to rest in his divine timing. 💕💕💕
