How To Have Peace At Work

Do you often feel frustrated during the worktime? Is there at least one person who gets on your last nerves and you don’t know what to do? Are you afraid of loosing your temper and possibly your job because of it?

You are not alone. We all deal with that same situation at one time or another. Just don’t give up and focus on what truly matters.

Here are my tips that help me through the day:

1. Just breathe. A deep breath does wonders. Those breathing techniques you possibly learned in yoga aren’t just for show. They help calm the mind.

2. Ask yourself ‘What Would Jesus Do?’: Yes, that good ole WWJD moment from bible camp really spoke out to me recently and it’s true. In any situation, ask yourself those four words of what He would do in that situation. Think about it. When He got betrayed, did He rise up in pure anger to someone who thought had his back? No. He remained calm and dealt with it respectfully unlike any of us in a situation of betrayal. So, the next time we feel stressed or frustrated with anyone or anything, just remain calm and accept the outcome. We are here for a reason.

3. Earbuds: If possible anyway, but having a distraction from the outsiders can be such a stress reliever.

Don’t give up. Be calm. Be patient. Be caring. Be you. You are there for a purpose.

God bless.

5 Things

Happy Fri-Yay everyone! 😊 it’s nearing the end of another glorious week and it still amazes me how fast this year is going. Thanksgiving is in (less than) TWO weeks!!! Crazy, right?

Well, these end of weeks moments I’d like to take a moment of gratitude of what happened through the week. My series (5 things) relates to 5 things which I am thankful of for this week. I try to really think about this because we all know how life can get. We often forget what our blessings are unfortunately.

My 5 includes the following:

1. The boy. Yes, you have guessed it, I do have a boyfriend. I am so glad to have him. Even though we do drive each other crazy constantly, I’m lucky to have him. He’s helped me out so much and I will forever be grateful. I looked upon this because as a dear friend of mine is now going through a breakup of her own. It’s making me realize how great my life really is.

2. God. Once again, He has proven me that He never leaves my side. Another trying week of stresses and letdowns, I know I can always lean onto Him for comfort and guidance. He gives me the peace and strength to continue.

3. Job. Hectic moments. Hectic people. Hectoc life. But, it provides food, shelter, and other necessities to get me by.

4. Sunny days. A reminder that after all of the storms that life gives us, sunshine is just a moment away. Be positive and keep moving forward.

5. Ability to see good in everything. We all have bad days and moments, but deep inside, there’s a good person. When we focus more on the positive, our lives begin to change. One of my favorite quotes happen to be “hope for the best; prepare for the worst.” We all know that bad things happen, but that won’t stop me from believing in the best of something while being prepared by a possible betrayal.

I would love to hear what your top 5 things that you are most thankful that happened through the week. They could be from both good and bad situations since every situation can have a learning experience attached.

God bless everyone. Shine the light for all to see.

Are Christians Perfect?

Hmm…let me think this through…no!

I don’t know any Christians who think they are perfect or close to. Just because we believe in God and His ways does not mean we’re perfect by any means. God is the only perfect one.

If we were perfect, then we wouldn’t be struggling in every day life. Finances, emotions, and every battle we often come across on a daily basis.

With all of my struggles and tests I still find myself going through now, I’m surprised that God hasn’t given up on me it, but I will forever be grateful. It makes me lean on Him even more which is exactly what we should be doing anyway.

So, no, I am far away from perfection. I am a work-in-progress constantly saying no to demons and trying my best to focus on the Lord. What helps me through the battles is “What Would Jesus Do” in these situations? This usually calms me down.

There is nothing on earth that is close to perfection.

What I Think About Free Will

Good evening everyone 😊
What do you think about free will? God gave us the freedom to do whatever we want, right? This is correct, but I had thoughts about it.
We are often told by our humanly parents that we can do whatever we want as long as if it makes us happy. But, they would like us to make good decisions and treat others with respect, love, and kindness.
Seem familiar?
Similarities between human parents and godly parents. God loves us all! He wants us to have a great life by honoring Him.
Think about it.
God is good!!

Prayer Circle

I believe we need another prayer circle on here. There is too much craziness and chaos going on in the world and we would just need to pray at this moment. Who’s with me? I’ll start it out. I will list out my items for prayer and concerns for this morning. I hope you would follow through with me. Let’s all get together and pray. He is listening.

1. My strength and guidance to get through this crazy thing called life through Jesus Christ.

2. People of Puerto Rico. They have been hit hard by hurricane Maria and it just breaks my heart. Pray for them to find comfort and peace as they try to relive their lives again. Pray for them to receive all that they need as they rebuild their community. Pray for love through this.

Let’s keep this going, shall we? Feel free to leave your prayers in the comments (or even message me your thoughts and prayers if you would like to keep quiet) and I will pray for whatever is on your mind.

God bless everyone! You are loved!

New YouTuber????

Is that right?!?!?! I joined YouTube?????

Yes, it is correct. I am continuing my journey on spreading the Gospel and living the life that God has intended us to live: by following Him. Also, I will post updates about my financial journey on becoming debt free and my frugal life. We are not meant to live a life of debt and I will be fighting it until it’s paid off for good.

I hope you enjoy my new venture, but don’t worry, I will still be active on this Website. This won’t be going anywhere! I promise 🙂

I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend. Don’t forget to smile big and proud. You never know who is watching.

What God Thinks About Debt and Finances

In today’s society, we have grown accustomed about debt being normal. Credit cards, student loans, mortgages, and more have been taken over our households. This can’t be what life is supposed to be like forever, right? I believe God wants us to be free especially with our finances. I keep finding myself going back to these Bible verses whenever I try to work on my own finances:

Proverbs 6:1-5

“My child, if you have put up security for a friend’s debt or agreed to guarantee the debt of a stranger – if you have trapped yourself by your agreement and are caught by what you said – follow my advice and save yourself, for you have placed yourself at your friend’s mercy. Now swallow your pride; go and beg to have your name erased. Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do. Save yourself like a gazelle escaping from a hunter, like a bird fleeing from a net.”

This verse could have a totally different meaning that what I think it is, but it’s just what helps me out when times get tough. We are not meant for all sorts of debts onto our names. We need to be compassionate and caring with our finances. So, go! Hurry up! Be careful to who you give your money to even to people who you think you’d trust.

Society’s norm has taken over many households. Our names are scattered across many companies who are eager to take money from our hard-earned paychecks without a care in the world!

God wants us to be free. Let’s take charge of our own finances and be the boss to overcome financial burdens. Finances don’t have to be stressful. Anything is possible with God on our sides. Take action and conquer any debt. Flee from the burdens which the society says what normal is. Follow what God intended us to have for our lives.

Never give up. Financial freedom and independence can be closer than you might think.

Have faith and follow through.

5 Things

It’s Friday!!!!! Or Fri-Yay as many of you probably already know 🙂

I will be starting a new series called “5 Things”. It will reflect 5 things that I am truly grateful for and appreciate every week. Once a week I will share what brought me extreme gratitude during this crazy thing called life. 

My 5 things are:

1. God. This might seem really obvious, but over the past couple weeks, I have felt very low of myself with little hope and faith of my future. This week changed. I feel so renewed and know that God is right beside me cheering me on and telling myself to never give up. If you ever feel alone, just have a moment and read the Bible and to pray. Don’t give up hope. Keep on believing and moving forward. Don’t let the demons win.

2. Ability to drive. Yes, traffic and the long routes can certainly be a pain, but having the freedom to get up and go drive somewhere just because you want to is an amazing feeling. I kmow others who can’t due to disabilities and I realize their frustrations of not being able to drive and always having to rely on others for a ride. There is more freedom than what we think. Enjoy what you CAN do.

3. Ability to pay bills. Not exactly the best thing in the planet, but a necessity of life. I may not have the greatest life, but I’m glad that I have the ability to provide for myself. I have shelter. I have food. Every month without any assistance. It’s a great feeling.

4. My health. I experienced a headache earlier. I disliked it and wished it would just go away!! But, after thinking it over, I am glad for it. It was just a minor and temporary issue. There are many people going through much more worse health issues so who am I to complain? I don’t have cancer. I’m not diabetic. I don’t have any disorders. I’m good. I’m healthy. Life is good.

5. Changing of seasons. October is here already. Autumn started recently and it’s amazing to see the leaves start changing colors. It’s nice to still be able to see the different seasons. Many die daily or at least stuck indoors for various reasons. It’s nice to experience these changes while I still can.

Life can get complicated and messy, but there is always good in every situation. Take a look around. What brings you gratitude for this week?

When You’re Feeling Down….

Do you ever find yourself feeling down and blue on any particular day? We’ve all been there! I’ve been there. No matter what situation – professional or personal – it’s hard to just “shake things off” when you have to go through it every day.

Here are my secrets to get through any obstacle:

Lean on God for support. He sees your pain and frustration and anxiety moments. Lean on Him and ask for guidance with your whole heart. It’s just as simple as that. He doesn’t ever want us to feel this way. He wants us to be happy and content.

Read the bible and pray. Again, it’s that simple. He gives us the most simplest things to endure.

Lastly, keep your head up. Repeat these words daily: “Not Today!” Control your mind before it controls you. The mind is the most powerful thing you have. I struggle with this on a daily basis still, but I never give up. I still wholeheartedly believe these words so much. They truly are a lifesaver.

Let me know what helps you through the week. Family? Nature? Faith? I would love to know your thoughts! 🙂

Free Will

I am sure you have heard of all the talk about free will vs God’s will. God gave us free will so I can do whatever I want and I won’t be punished for it, right? There’s a lot more to the story than we think. Today, I will let you know what I think about the free will dilemma.

Our parents taught us that we can be whatever we want and do whatever we want, but of course with good judgement and wisdom. Well, I believe that is what God is doing also. He is our father. He wants good for us. He wants us to be wise enough and make good decisions, just like our humanly parents.

Love, discipline, and honor. Seem familiar? 

It doesn’t matter if it’s a humanly parent or a godly parent. They all want the same thing, like it or not. Of course they will always love us no matter what, but the wants and needs are very similar.

These are my views I notice at this time. Let me know your thoughts!

All are welcome!
