30-Day Blog Challenge: My Proudest Moment

In life, there are a lot of things that we really wanted but it is just so hard and complicated. We wake up confused, we did not do what happened and why we are in the ¨wrong situation¨. 

The same thing with me. I can say that before, I was really ambicious person. I had a lot of plans with my life and untill what time or period should I have achieved them. I always have Plan A and Plan B or maybe until Plan E. That´s how sure I was with my own life. 

But things happen and change. Maybe if until now, I have not had a relationship with the Lord, I would say that life is so unfair. People who are easy going, achieve whatever they want in their life in just a second. Unlike to those who strive to death to achieve their dreams. But no, that is too selfish for me to think about. We all have our own stories to tell. And I believe, that God has the biggest plans for us, in His own perfect time. 

For me, I have 2 proudest moments in my life. The first one is when I decided to not finish my studies in Philippines and to come back in Spain to have a proper job so that my mom can have her breast cancer treatment. Let us say that it was a battle between my mom´s life and my own dreams. It was hard by that time because I was doing excellent with my studies. I had a lot of dreams for myself. But that moment, I want to be selfless, the same way my mom did all through these years. 

And the second proudest moment that I have is the moment I have decided to stay in the presence of the Lord. That is during the times that I struggled a lot. That is when I question my own existence and when I wanted to end everything. But I am proud, because whenever that happens, at the end of the day I still choose to stay in His presence and that is Faith. Having hope and trust wholeheartedly, surrender my situation to God and claim His promises. 

As human, we have a lot of questions to ourselves. But knowing the promises of the Lord and trusting His own timing, make every struggle worthy. I cannot imagine my life without Jesus. And I pray a lot, that one day I can touch people´s heart and lead them to God. That could be my third proudest moment. 

¨For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.¨
Jeremiah 29:11-12
