Stink, Stank, Stunk

“I don’t think you should overwhelm yourself though. I think you should pray, send positive vibes and well wishes. Do and deal with what you have control over, you’ll be fine. But don’t be “Stink, Stank, Stunk” ha ha.”

I told my cousin that I didn’t know the word Stank was the past tense of stink. I thought the word stank was slang and the past tense of stink was stunk. I’m still trying to figure it out…

…as I’m trying to figure out so many other things pertaining to my life. I’m learning that if i want to function on a daily basis as I should, I cant have too many things to think about. I cant have too many situations to analyze. I cant have too many decisions to make. I think my brain has the capacity of solving 1 life problem per day.  Any more than that, my brain begins to deflate like my 2 month old when she burps. Its not a loud bubbly burp. Its like releasing the air from a tire. Tsssssss.

When my mind is troubled, I hear someone say: “did you pray about it?’. Like, absolutely! But we forget that God gave us free will and the ability to make our own decisions especially in cases where both choices are not bad at all. Should I eat this apple, or this orange? Both are fruits, both are healthy, but I could only choose 1 within the next 5 minutes.

I have learned in moments like these to simply tell God I don’t know what to do and I have to make a move quickly. I tell Him to guide my steps and remove anything that could damage me. As I continue life with this same mindset, I realized that God still comes through.

You could say I’m wrong. That I shouldn’t make decisions if I don’t have time to pray. Fine, but the hospital is telling me to pull the plug on a family member or else that person would continue to suffer. How about responding to my child’s rebelliousness the moment he acts out or give myself time to breathe and think to handle the situation carefully.

Guys, you don’t know all of God’s capabilities. He’s way to wonderous to understand. Let God deal with everyone His own way. And let us step back.



It’s good to learn about new people

I took some time to read some blogs under the tag “Grace” and I enjoyed every post I came across. We need to step out of our realm and take a look at the ideas of other minds out there. I loved reading about people’s struggles, thoughts, doubts and ideas about scripture. It opened up my mind and brings me to realize that there is more to life than what I’m exposed to now.  

People are more honest here on WordPress. You can sense the feelings being poured out on each post with no limits and all masks taken off. That’s what I love to see! 

Today I read about 5 blogs and they all have one thing in common. Courage. They have enough courage to reveal their true thoughts, feelings and doubts to post online for the world to see. It’s the transparency that pulls me in. 

What holds you back? Why do you keep some of your thoughts to yourself? Hey, everyone is a work in progress and life is about having new experiences everyday. As we grow, we learn that everything is worth sharing. We all just need time to get to that point.
