God Sends Messages at the Right Time

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I have my hands on a few projects. One of those projects is my immigration podcast. Immigration is close to my heart since I’m a child of immigrants, and it’s been in my heart to help and get involved with immigration. I want to be able to help in any way that I can, whether it’s being an advocate, educating, or volunteering.

In 2019 I was determined to go to law school to become an immigration attorney because I felt that was the best way I could help. I took the LSAT (the test to apply to law school), but my score was average, and I was disappointed. At the time, I was finishing my master’s, so I had a lot on my plate and couldn’t dedicate enough time to study for the LSAT. Because of my score, I got discouraged.

After starting my podcast, I came upon the opportunity to help a non-profit organization that helps new migrant families find resources for things they need. I help with translating documents and in online meetings.

While doing this, I realized there was a need, and I reached out to an immigration attorney to get their advice on if I would be able to help with the demand that is there, but she told me to be careful – it would be best if the families hire an immigration attorney for that particular need.

So once again, I got the urge to go to law school. I felt like I wasn’t doing enough in the area of immigration and that I could do more. I talked to my husband and a close friend about it, and they both said the same thing, I am doing enough. They both told me that the podcast is doing something; it brings awareness to immigration. My close friend said she would pray with me (I had reached out to her for a prayer request) about the situation and see if God leads me toward law school.

Well, this feeling of me not doing enough or questioning if what I’m doing is “worth it” comes to me occasionally. Like, right when I think, “what’s the point” and I feel like giving up, God ALWAYS reminds me that I’m right on track. And this time wasn’t any different.

Literally, the next day, I received a message from a person I’ve known since I was a child but hadn’t talked to in years, and she said, “I see you making a difference out there! Keep up the good work.” She then told me she had subscribed to my podcast. And to me, that was all the recurrence I needed to know that I was doing enough.

This reminds me of two bible verses – the first one is Jeremiah 29:11, which says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future, (NIV). And Proverbs 16:9 says, “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps,” (NIV).

God knows the plans for our lives, all we need to do is seek Him, and it will come to us. And His plans are much better than what we have planned for our lives.

I pray that you surrender any plans you may have to God and have Him establish the steps you need to take. And remember, God loves you, and He cares for you. All His plans for you are for your good.

Thank you, God, for always reminding me that I am doing your good work. Thank you for always being there for me and guiding me. Amen.

With Love, Heidy

Be Intentional With Your Time

We are the generation of multitasking, especially women. We’ve always had to juggle much and wear different hats. And last year, 2020, don’t even get me started, that was a game-changer. But for the new year, I don’t want to be a multitasker; I want to focus on one thing at a time and do it well. You see, when you multitask, your attention is divided, so you’re not focused, and little things can slip up. This is why, for the new year, I want to be intentional with my time.

Recently I’ve realized that no matter what I’m doing, I like to do only that. For example, if I’m watching TV, I’ll focus only on watching TV and not be on my phone or reading something. Or if I’m working or writing, I like to focus just on the task at hand because I want to do the best job possible; I cannot do that if I’m also focused on doing something else. Also, anything that I’m doing, I’m intentional with it, meaning there is a purpose behind it. Even things I like to do “for fun” are usually educational, like reading; I love reading about history, memoirs, literature, etc. And watching TV, I’m usually watching a documentary, or a documentary series, even podcasts; I love podcasts, but there is usually something that I get out of them while I’m listening to them. Simply put, I don’t like to waste time, LOL.

For the new year, one thing I want to be intentional with is my time with Jesus.

Lamentations 3 verse 25 through 28 says, “The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him, (NIV). I listen to the Bible in the morning, either while I’m getting ready for work or working, but I want to change that. I want to spend dedicated alone time with the word of God. I want to understand what I’m listening to and be able to hear God speak to me.

I submitted a devotional for a prayer journal, and the devotional was chosen to be in it. The journal is available for purchase on Amazon. It is a 52-week prayer journal, which I’m going to use starting this new year as part of my plan to be intentional with my time with Jesus. I also won a planner on an Instagram giveaway. It has a daily affirmation, prayer gratitude, prayer requests, scripture readings, and a devotional/reflection section, which I’m also going to use to be intentional with my time with Jesus.

My point is that I have a plan set to be intentional with my time in the spiritual aspect of my life. This is one of my goals for 2021! Is there a place in your life you are looking to be intentional? Do you have a plan or a goal you’d like to achieve? I’d love to hear about it and maybe even help. Let me know!

With Love,

Serving Others & God with Our Talents & Gifts

We all have a talent; some may have multiple, but different people use their talents differently. Some use it for malice and some for good. Do you know what your talent is? How do you use your talent?

It took me a while to figure out that my talent is writing; although I’ve always been a writer, I just didn’t know it. Let me explain. When I was younger, I want to say middle school; I had a journal for writing poems. Then I had another one that I used as a diary; I would write every day’s events and my feelings. I started writing a book but never finished. I even wrote songs at one point. I was always writing.

I have written on and off for years, but now I want to keep writing consistently. I realized that writing was my talent when I shared my poetry with others and received positive feedback. For years, I would tell myself that I didn’t have a talent because I can’t sing, I don’t dance professionally, I don’t act, and I don’t draw or color. However, writing comes naturally to me. Even writing my papers during my undergrad and graduate career, I enjoyed it.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that there are more talents beyond acting, singing, and dancing. And the Bible says this too, in Romans 12:6-8 (NIV) We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in according with your faith; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is show mercy, do it cheerfully. 

Some people are good leaders, some are athletic, some are good listeners, and some are good speakers. Nevertheless, what God wants us to do with our gifts is to serve others and bring glory to his name. No matter what the talent is.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 (NIV)

Maybe you don’t know what your talent is or how to use it to serve others, but you can pray about this. God will provide the answer for you because He provided this talent to you.

I cannot wait to meet God in heaven and answer Him when He asks what I did with the gifts He gave me and say, Lord, I devoted my talents to spreading your gospel on the platform you provided me.

What will you answer Him when He asks you what you did with your talents?

With Love,

More Bible verses about talents:

1 Peter 4:10 NIV – Each of you should use whatever gifts you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

1 Corinthians 12:4-6 NIV – There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Only Jesus Saves

It’s not about religion – it’s about a relationship with God. It’s not about rules – it’s about following the life of Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1) It’s not about what you can do for yourself but what you can do for others.

Serve in the name of the Lord, love in the name of the Lord, lead in the name of the Lord, pray in the name of the Lord, and praise in the name of the Lord.

The most important relationship you can have on this Earth is a relationship with God because nothing on this Earth will satisfy you like him.

Surrender to him. Your life, every aspect of it, financial, relationships, career, parenting, everything. You cannot bargain with him – it’s all or nothing.

Let him be the God of everything. He provides all you need, and he wants to provide the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)

God is great, faithful, merciful, and loving. There is nothing you have done that the Lord won’t forgive. (Ephesians 1:7) (Isaiah 1:18)
