Plans (part 2)

Have you ever made plans that you really wanted but for some reason, they just didn’t. No matter how much you planned everything out. They just didn’t work out. You are left wondering what the heck happen?! Why didn’t I see this coming?

This. Was. Me. Three months ago my world turn a little bit. The place where I called work wasn’t what I wanted anymore. Wasn’t where I even wanted to be anymore. I know I still needed a job. I still have bills to pay, responsibilities, but all I wanted was to walk out and quit! After 15 years at the same job. I was done. I felt like my time had come. I was scared, nervous, anxious, confused. You name the emotion! I know I had it that one week!! That week felt like the longest week of my life! I prayed, I fasted. I humbled myself to the One that I should have come to first.

Then God stepped in. He constantly was tugging at my heart and telling me He got me this far. He will sustain me. He will get me through this. I just have to trust Him. To let Him do the work He said He was going to do in my life. I had asked God years ago, to use me at this job. To bring others to know Him. To let me see others the way He does. In the 6 years that I was at that store. I shared my Faith with my co workers that I would sometimes see more than my own family. I would try to give each of them Godly wisdom. But most important, the way I lived my life had to reflect the God I was talking about. I tried my best to plant those seeds in each of their hearts. I pray that someone else comes to water them now. That season has passed now.

God open doors and this new season He has me in a totally different store, with a different atmosphere. It’s still the same company. But with new co workers. A new mission field. This was never my dream job, but it’s a job. The bible says everything you do, do it on to the Lord. I pray that God to keep using me. To keep showing me how to share His love to those that don’t know Him. To not only share my Faith with others, but to be that example of that love relationship I have with Jesus. Not some religion! Please pray with me. I know that I’ve been away this summer, but I’m promising that ill be blogging more this season He has me on. So stay tuned!

I sometimes look back at what my life would have been without my Faith. Without my God that has my life already planned out for me. I urge you right now. If you don’t know Jesus. Or are confused and feeling that all your plans in life are not what you wanted. Don’t worry. God loves you. He has your plans all ready. Just trust Him. Any prayer request? Please feel free to email me: crebollo31@gmail.com

Thank you for taking this time to read these simple words. Thank you for praying!
Love and prayers to each one of you. ❤

sustained by God

“My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (Psalm 73:26 NKJV)

Hello! It’s been a while since I last blogged my little heart out. How is everyone? How was your summer? Was it too hot? Too fast? Or like mine, just to quick! I did have a good summer though. I actually took a little family trip to San Francisco in July and it was great! I will blog more about that in future, promise. This summer I did feel like I have grown up a little, and not just because I had a BDAY! It’s because I realized how faithful my Jesus is.

Let me rewind a little bit here. I know how faithful God is. For some reason, I thought it is required of God, the Creator of the Universe, to “have” to be faithful. See it isn’t. He doesn’t have to be. But like a loving, caring Father that knows best, He is and will be Faithful. In painful, horrible, dreadful moments, He is still faithful. In the book of Job, it reads, ” The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.” (Job 1:21 NKJV) We may not see it at times, ( I know I don’t) but He is faithful in everything. It could be that not so good relationship that you are in. Or that job, or even certain friends that YOU know are not helping your walk with God. When you take that step of Faith and make a stand for Jesus. He will be faithful. He will always honor your decision. You know what comes with being sure that God is and always will be faithful? Having trust in Him. Having His Word in you heart. Trusting that His plans and His ways are 100% better than your ways. (Jeremiah 29:11)

“Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.” (Psalm 100:2-5 NKJV)

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments”.(Deuteronomy 7:9 NKJV)
