Scrolling through Facebook over the past weekend, a post caught my eye.

About Q Jackson
For Q, writing is a happy respite where she can ask big questions she doesn’t have the answer to, and serves as an outlet for the thoughts she can’t collect fast enough to speak out loud.

“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him,” teaches popular American preacher, John Piper. Amen! Don’t we all long to be fully satisfied in God and God alone?
At the beginning of my third year of University, I took two bags and all the courage I could muster, and got on a plane to spend the next four months across the world.
Over a year ago, I found myself worn out and exhausted: greatly taxed from a job that didn’t seem to give much in return for my effort.
