Let God be God

Do you recognize yourself in one of these statements:

“I tend to want to find solutions to everything.”

“I worry too much about things beyond my control.”

” I try to carry people’s burdens like they were mine.”

“I want others to need me therefore I don’t encourage them to grow.”

“I try to plan and foresee everything that go wrong so I can find solutions.”

“I analyze and criticize other people’s behavior and wonder why they don’t change rather than praying for them.”

If you fit into one of those descriptions, you are not alone. At one point or another, we sometimes want to have everything under our control and we feel overwhelmed when it become too much.

In times like this, I find it helpful to whisper to myself: “I am not God”.


I cannot change people’s attitude and behaviors, I cannot save the failing economy, protect every family member, provide for every single person but I can let God be God.

I can pray and I can play my small partition within God’s great plan for this world. I can’t do everything because I am limited but God can because He is a limitless and powerful God.

Sometimes because of our need to be recognized and appreciated, we tend to do more that what we can actually carry. That coworker is going to be fine even if you say no for the eleventh time. That family member will be taken care of even if you stop providing for him.

Why? Because there is a God and it’s not you. 

Isn’t it freeing to know this?

To know that the world won’t stop turning because I decided to drop my heavy load and everyone else expectations and just rest at the Lord’s feet.

I want to encourage you today: it’s time to drop your heavy load. You can rest now. You have permission to do. Jesus himself gave you this permission when he said: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Dear friend, if you find yourself with more than you can carry today, just drop it at the feet of Jesus and whisper to yourself: “I am not God“.

And it’s ok. You’ll be ok.

Living and learning

It’s been a while since I have written a post. Not that life has been that busy. What have changed since then? I grew more mature (I guess), still making mistakes (we’re mere humans after all) but there is so much I’ve learn.

I have learn that you cannot run from your responsibilities. As much as you want to be a carefree person, sooner or later, “life” will catch you. There will be tough decisions to be made, people to confront, dilemmas, etc. but there will also be joys, happy and pleasurable moments that you must learn to enjoy and cherish. Those will be good memories that you’ll want to hold to.

I have learn that Confidence is important. Confidence will lead you to that next step. Confidence is not only for life big challenges (getting hired, buying a new house, travel the world, leave your job, starting your business, etc.). Confidence is necessary even in the small acts (buying a dress that people think is too bold, getting to know this new co-worker, changing your hairstyle, and so on)

I have learn that living up to your convictions help shape the person that you are and you have to stay true to yourself.

I have learn that it is important to interact with all kind of people. Not the one you feel secure with, not the one you are comfortable with, not the one you feel good about. Enlarge your circle, get to know those that are older and younger than you, from a different country, different culture. You’ll be amazed about what you’ll learn.


meeting all kinds of people

I have learn that you have to break the routine. Yes, after doing things the same way for a while, it can be a little daunting to break the cycle. But do it!

The joy of decluttering

I was thinking about the progress I have made in self development and I am quite happy how it is going along well.  I have learned that I do not have to tolerate things that are bothering me and the best thing to do is to get rid of them and this applies to all aspects of life.

For instance, my wardrobe was full of clothes, hanging in a disorderly fashion and each time I got out from work and saw it , I knew I had to do something about it but I did not. Then, last weekend I finally decided to end its suffering, so I took all the clothes, and sort them, what I intend to keep and what I should get rid of or give away. After that, all the clothes that I kept I hung them in the wardrobe and I would swear I heard it say: Oh, My God, thank you, I am finally breathing! loool.

I also did some decluttering at work also, get rid of papers, stuff I did not need anymore, and I am more enthusiast to work now.

This is also apply in your social life, you do not have to be friends with everyone, specially the people that are always trying to bring you down, the hypocrits, the free riders and even some  family members, yes, if you see that they are having a bad influence, stay away from them.  Life is much better without them, trust me, the only person that is essential is JESUS.

The idea is to keep it simple in every aspect of your life, you do not need the whole wide world to be happy.


Those rare days….

I am happy today! This is special because I do not feel this way very often.  You know those days where you feel good in your own skin, you’re smiling, you’re laughing, joking around and everygthing seems lighter and you want that feeling to last always. Hmm, I like that.

Some great things are coming ahead too, I have  promises that are about to be achieved….

Until then, I am enjoying those blissful moments, whether they are short or long, it’s all about living the present moment.

Let’s all stay blessed!

Birthday plan?


Ok, so my birthday is drawing nearer and everyone keep asking me what are my plans.  I did think about it and I came up with a clear and precise objective: Invest in an Experience.

The birthday plan is  a reset plan and part of it is to reward myself. So at first I thought about purchasing something fancy like a gorgeous ring or bracelet, go on a shopping spree, etc… you know that kind of stuff.

Then, as I am trying to save and keep a tight budget, purchasing fancy stuff was removed from the list, so this is when I came up with the idea of investing on something that should be highly beneficial, therapeutic and motivational.  so here it is:

– Go on  a retreat (would be lovely, but not so sure)

– Do a roadtrip (impossible)

– Go visit my Granpa (oh yes!)

– Go on cruise ( If anyone is willing to pay, I’m ready to go right now…. 🙂 )

– and I’m out of ideas. 

Yes, my brain is tired and my batteries needs to be recharged.

I have two days to decide. La nuit porte conseil. I hope that tomorrow my thoughts will be clearer.
