I am not your God

Once upon a time, there was girl who felt invisible to the world, especially amongst her parents. Her desires as a child to be seen grew. Her soul yearned to hear the words “I see you!” She left her innocence to chase fame and riches hoping to be seen and for the world to worship her. She thought “Oh, world how shall I get you to praise me?” 

She was led astray as she saw the Maxim girls receive a lot of praise. She thought becoming a sex symbol was the symbol. She felt seen, desired, and admired. She craved more and headed to Hollywood. But in the back of her mind, she knew that the praise would disappear sooner or later. 

What is the point of being like God when she does not know God? The fame, the men, the praise… eventually it was unfulfilling. Dayana, fell on her knees and surrendered her throne to know the real God. The God who created the heavens and the earth.

The fall of humanity is when one has tried to be like God. There is no amount of wisdom or knowledge that can make one be God. Many have tried to be like him. Yet they fail and realize they need a Savior. One example is Eve, she lived a graceful life in Eden. In time, she chose to ignore God and ate the apple to be like God. Her choice affected both her, her husband, and future generations. She did not become like God if anything she witnessed the wages of sin.

For so long, Dayana, tried to be like God. She wanted to be the savior of many. She carried the burden of responsibility. Recently, she realized that she can’t be the savior because she might be interfering with God’s will for their life. 

She has learned to not get in the way of being a savior unless the Holy Spirit leads her to help. 

I have written all of this to remind myself and others that we are not God. There is only one God. He is strong enough to handle our burdens and be our savior. He is the way, the truth, and life. 

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6


Push Through

When life gets complicated, it’s hard to want to persevere. In a way, it feels like something inside of us dies. It can be hard to want to do anything, but today I write to you to tell you that there is life, hope, and stories to share on the other side of your hardship. … Continue reading “Push Through”
