Detours

Don’t you find frustrating that whenever you’re about to do something yet another thing comes up?  I often think that is one way of life making jokes to us.  But I don’t think it’s funny.

Our life is like a journey; sometimes we know where we are going and sometimes we don’t.  But there’s something satisfying whenever we’re focused on a goal and we are working hard to achieve it.  We often set our minds on goals especially if we had previous others that could never materialize.

But then the joke’s on us: life happens and detours appear.  It’s like standing in front of an intersection where we our road to the North divides into East and West.  Whenever this happens in my life….I feel so lost.

I know I should read the Bible; but when it has to be about matters of the heart just reading the Bible isn’t enough.  Fasting and prayer will make God real in our lives.  I honestly don’t know how people can manage whenever they have to deal with these situations.  When I was far away from God; my life was in chaos.  I even had panic attacks because I didn’t have God’s support.  I felt alone and I was alone.

But now in this moment when the detour is just in front of me; I know what I have to do.  It’s still confusing, it can still be painful….but I have hope.  We all have hope.  And we don’t have to lose it.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.  The Lord works out everything for His own ends-even the wicked for a day of disaster.”  Proverbs 16:3-4

I hope this message makes you stop for a moment from wherever you are going.  Just think, read & pray.  Godspeed!

Resolutions

Agenda

Well, it’s almost the middle of the first month of this year.  Have you already started your new year resolutions?  Is it a diet?  Is it to exercise more?  Is it to go back to school and finish your college degree?  Is it to get a new job?  Well, whatever it is….make a plan.  I hope you already bought an agenda with very useful calendars where I can put my next plan into action.

If you’re not an organized person; an agenda could be very helpful; unless you’re such a mess that can’t even remember where did you put it in the first place….  But try to keep it in just one place so that way you can always find it.  Throw or give away the things that you don’t need.  You’ll have more space and more visibility in case you lose stuff.

This year has started OK for my daughter and me.  This last week I finished the a training for a program to be a teacher in Texas.  I’m pretty excited and expectant about that.  It’s like heading into this great adventure into the unknown.  There’s still nothing certain until I pass the TeXes; but the day is there: March 31st, 2015.

Steps have been taken, now it’s to keep disciplining myself into studying and reviewing what I have learned so far.  God will make His final decision; even if the decision isn’t what I expected….I will accept the outcome.  His plans are better than mine.  He knows if I will succeed or fail.  He knows if my steps will lead me to my victory or my defeat.  It’s so good to know that God is still in control.  Because He knows the future and He wants the best for me.

I will leave you with this verse:  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

Make this verse yours this year!  God Bless You ❤
