Hello my Warriors I been gone for a few days I bet you guys missed me, just kidding I don’t think that actually happened. Anyways today I’m going to talk about the expression that is as the tittle of my blog post tonight and what it means to me and some other juicy stuff.
That saying is so used in the latino culture that I just cringed thinking about it. The worldly meaning of that saying is that if you don’t marry early on; you might not marry later on when you are older. Ridiculous right, well in my country a lot of the young lady’s marry early on from the age of 14 and that’s probably your face there
That’s my face two when random people ask me if I’m married or have kids nowadays. And I politely say ” Sir/ Madam I’m sorry to dash your dreams but I’m not.” Just kidding I just respond I don’t. However that’s not what I’m going to talk about. You guys might not know or I’m not sure if I told you guys my age. But I’m 21 years old; still live with my parents and most important I am a JESUS FREAK! Yes there I said it. I love JESUS and I LOVE GOD and I’m a BELIEVER and I’m NOT married 🙄😭😂.
When I was younger and wet behind my ears; I thought I had everything figured out but I was in for the surprise of my life. When I graduated high school at the age of 16 ; I never thought that my life would take a different course. I had everything planned. What college I was going to, what major I was going to pursue, but God had a different plan. I never imagined that two months after I graduated the college that I was going to go to was going to charge me triple the amount for tuition or that my scholarship was not going to be enough to cover my tuition. I screamed, I cried out, I yelled and blamed God. Because I thought this was the path I was supposed to take. You know that the world tells you in different ways ; through movies, tv shows, books that you have to be a certain way. That you have to go to college, hook up, get drunk, have sex, get married, have kids, get rich but the world does not tell you to search for God first and foremost.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
I thought my life had ended that my years were passing by super fast💨. And sometimes family or family members or even friends instead of giving encouragement; they bring you down. And that happened to me instead of supporting me; they would declare that phrase for my life when they told me or asked me; why wasn’t I going to college. But I nor they did not see the plan that God had in store. I did not know that a few months after that email I was going to be the care taker of a one year old little cousin; that later on would become like my child. A child that was malnourished, neglected and had no love from his mother after she abandoned him. God knew the path my life was going to take, he knew the maturity I had to gained. That same boy I was going to raise for 4 years and half of those years were the years my family was going through the most difficult trials ever. We saw no escape, no light but this child would bring laughter and joy to our family and house. And to my life most importantly; while I was going through a depression and addiction of my own.
It has been five years since I graduated high school and some of those years were the most depressing, worrisome, joyful and growing years in my life. I might not have a degree at this moment, I might not have a husband or family of my own. But I do have the love of God and a child that I have cried , prayed and loved. My life might not be what the world wants but it’s the life that God is planning and developing every single day. I believe that God’s timing is perfect; don’t rush over something that later on will bring heartache, confusion, depression and most of the time will depart you from God’s path. My ministry is there and I will believe with all my heart that God will use me for his honor and glory. And that even though the train might leave without me, I know that God has the answers for every aspect of my life.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
