IN GOD’S HANDS…

English version! after the Romanian..

DUMNEZEU ESTE DENUMINATORUL COMUN….

De multe ori avem impresia gresita ca ne cunostem pe noi insine. Intr-o lume de incertitudini ne-ar placea cel putin sa privim spre sufletul nostru si sa spunem aceasta. Insa nu ar fi in nici un caz o afermatie “Adevarata”!! Si pana la urma ce este adevarul..?

Fiecare este cert ca adevarul lui este cel absolut. Cand IN REALITATE, exista doar UNUL. Si acela este..DUMNEZEU. Dumnezeu ESTE ADEVARUL, care de multe ori nu coincide cu cel al nostru, daca acesta nu se reflecta in al LUI.

Am sa va prezint 3 cazuri in care ADEVARUL MEU a fost in mod RADICAL transformat.

  1. Alimentia
  2. Personalitatea
  3. Perceptia viziva

1. Alimentia

blog-featured_fiber_2-20171121.pngDe multe ori aud prieteni, colegi de munca care afirma ca le plac anumite mancaruri, ca nu ar putea supravetui fara certe alimente precum carne, oua, branzeturi. Mai afirma ca se simt rau daca sar peste mic de jun, pranz, cina; ca trebuie sa manance la ore regulare daca nu se imbolnavesc.

Obisnuiam sa cred acelasi lucru…pana cand viata, perceptia mea s-a modificat complet atunci cand a intrat in coliziune cu planurile lui Dumnezeu.

Nu pot uita cat imi era greu, atunci cand mama mea imi spunea ca ar trebui sa postim in preajma Craciunului si a Pastelui. Nu cred ca am reusit mai mult de o saptamana, cu chiu, cu vai.

Cum as fi putut ATUNCI eu sti ca va veni o zi cand cu cea mai mare fericire in suflet- VOI AFERMA CA VOI DORI SA TRAIESC O VIATA fara acele alimente care le iubeam atat de mult?  Cum a fost posibil? Dumnezeu a intervenit si a schimbat tot ceea ce credeam eu despre alimentatie sau mai bine spus, mi-a dat valul jos de pe ochi.

2. Personalitateasigns-a-shy-girl-likes-you-Muted-Flirting

Stiu am fost intotdeuna un rac timid, dar ambitios. Chiar din clasa intai imi doream sa fiu printre primii chiar daca imi era cam greu sa vorbesc in fata clasei, sa ies sa rezolv probleme, insa de fiecare data cand stateam in banca, glasul sufletului meu imi striga cu putere ca trebuie sa vorbesc, sa las ceea ce inima imi dicteaza sa iasa la suprafata, sa rup barierele tacerii. Ceva in mine se sfarma atunci cand nu puteam sa spun ce aveam pe suflet.

Cu timpul, viata m-a obligat sa calc peste rezervateta mea…si vrut, nevrut rezultatele obtinute pe plan academic..nu mi-au permis sa raman in penumbra.

Si totusi , ma consideram inca aceeasi…Pana cand a venit o zi… Eram cu un grup mai mare de cunostinte si prieteni, la o Adunare de persoane, mai mult si mai putin cunoscute…si una dintre prietenele mele ma indeamna sa ies in fata, sa citesc o poezie. “Cine eu??” Ii raspund..”Nu sunt acel tip de persoana si nu voi fi niciodata!”

Dupa cateva luni de zile..Dumnezu a intervenit DIN NOU…Dupa o noapte in care nu am reusit sa inchid ochii, m-am trezit cu certitudinea ca duminica viitoare…va trebui sa citesc o poezie in fata la acel grup mare de persoane si ca ma voi duce intr-o excursie… De unde acele ganduri? Inima imi batea cu o viteza greu de percepit…picioarele imi erau grele si ma intrebam cine ma obliga sa fac acel pas???

Chiar nu era nimeni, decat Dumnezeu care ma indeamna, care imi scria in cartea vietii ca in acea zi ca trebuia sa fiu acolo si ca citesc acele randuri.

A fost experienta cea mai emotionanta din viata mea…si din acel moment vocea aceea nu inceteaza sa ma indemne pe acel drum. Cine am fost? Cine sunt? Doar o persoana care nu se cunoaste nici in cea mai mica masura.

Cred ca fiecare fata/ femeie are preferintele ei cand vine vorba despre barbati. Ne atrag cei chipesi, inalti 1.75m-1.90m, daca vrem sa exageram, nici prea slabi, nici opusul, dar bine facuti..Si cine ar putea nega?! Tot ceea ce este extern ne atrage atentia, insa Dumnezeu ne invata, ma intai de toate, sa privim sufletul omului. Ceea ce se ascunde dincolo de trup…si doar daca ne vom da posibilitatea vom putea descoperi.

Am avut ocazia sa spun Nu la acest tip de barbati..pe motiv de credinta…insa nu am stiut niciodata ca inima mea va fi cucerita de o persoana care initial, nici nu am putut sa o consider.

Era o persoana 1.85 m,..circa, slab, simpatic…dar “nu tipul meu”.

Mai tarziu, am aflat numele lui si inca nu pot sa cred…deoarece numele lui are un mare impact asupra mea. Plus mi-a iesit in evidenta pentru o pasiune care o avem in comun si la care el se pricepe de minune. Poate nu va sti niciodata ca mi-a castigat inima prin caracterul lui puternic si talentul lui impresionant, insa nu voi uita nicicand ziua cand mi-a zambit…incontient de faptul ca el pentru mine va ramane o dovada a faptului ca eu nu ma cunosc PE MINE INSAMI si ca atunci cand il lasam pe El la carma corabiei noastre, destinatia poate fi una surprinzatoare. 

IN TOATE ACESTE CONTEXTE,

Dumnezeu..este DENUMINATORUL comun..care mi-a schimbat percetia asupra vietii interne si  externe. Sa nu uitam…ca unica certitudine care o putem AVEA IN VIATA… ESTE CA ea nu este in mainile noastre si ca realitatea de astazi este doar o mica fractiune a ceea ce noi suntem cu adevarat si nu realizam in acest moment si acest timp. Sa ne lasam modelati si slefuiti de mesterul cel mai abil pentru a deveni mai mult pe placul CREATORULUI NOSTRU DIVIN.

GOD IS THE COMMON DENOMINATOR….

We often have the wrong impression that we know ourselves. In a world of uncertainties we would like at least to look to our soul and say … that we knows it. But it wouldn’t be “real” !! and after all what’s true …?

Everyone is sure that his truth is absolute. When IN REALITY there is only ONE. And that is … GOD. God is the truth, which often does not coincide with ours, if it is not reflected in Him.

I will present you three cases in which my TRUTH has been radically transformed.

  1. food
  2. personality
  3. Visible perception

I often hear friends, work colleagues who say that they can not survive without certain foods such as meat, eggs, cheese etc. Also say that they feel bad if they jump over the breakfast, lunch, dinner; that they have to eat at regular times, otherwise they would get sick.

I used to believe the same thing … until  all my life, my perception changed radically when it collided with God’s plans.

I cannot forget how hard it used to be when my mother was telling me that we should fast around Christmas and Easter. I do not think I’ve been able to do it for more than a week or two.

That time I didn’t  know that will come one day when with the greatest happiness in my soul – I WILL DECIDE TO LIVE A LIFE without those foods that I loved so much.

God intervened and changed everything I thought about food, or better said, changed the light inside my eyes. 

2. Personality

images.jpgI know, I was always a shy, but ambitious cancer. Even in the first grade, I wanted to be among the first in my class, even if I was a little embarrassed to speak in front of the class, to solve problems, to read in front of the class, but every time I was sitting down, the voice of my soul was screaming that I had to talk, show what my heart dictates, break the barriers of shyness. Something in me was broken every time I couldn’t say what I had on my soul.

Over time, life has forced me to go over my shyness …  a little because of my good academically results … they did not allow me to sit in the shade.

And yet, I thought I was  still the same … Until a day comes ... Actually, I will never forget those two days. I was with a big group of friends and acquaintances at a meeting of people, more and less well-known … and one of my friends urges me to go out and read a poem. “Who? Me?” …”I am not that person and I will never be!”, I responded to her.

After a few months .. God intervened ANEW … After a night when I could not close my eyes, I woke up with the certainty that next Sunday … I will have to read a poem in front of that big group of people and I will do a trip.

My heart was bitting at a speed that was hard to perceive … my feet were heavy and I was wondering who was forcing me to take that step ???

There was nobody really … But it was written that, that day I had to be there and read those lines.

It was the most exciting experience in my life … and from that moment on, that voice does not stop urging me to be there. Who was I? What am I? Just a person that descovers herself everyday, every moment.

I think every girl / woman has her preferences when it comes to men. A handsome, tall 1.75m-1.90m man,   if we want to exaggerate, well done, not too slim or the opposite. Who can deny it?!, Everything that is external attracts attention, but God teaches us, first of all, to look at the soul of a man. What is hiding beyond the flesh … unless we give it the chance we can’t discover it.

I had the opportunity to say No to this type of men … on the grounds of faith … but I never knew that my heart would be conquered by a person who originally I did not even consider it.

It was a man 1.85 m .., slim, nice … but “not my type”.

Later I found out his name and I still cannot believe … because his name has a great impact on me. Plus,  we have a big a passion in common. Maybe, he will never get to know that he won my heart with his strong character and his impressive talent, but I will never forget the day when he smiled at me… and Anyway, he will remain the biggest proof to me that I do not I know myself, and that He changes everything!!

And so it is. In all these contexts, God has changed the perception of my external and internal  reality.

Let’s not forget … that the only certainty we can have in our lives … is that it is not in our hands and that today’s reality is only a small fraction of what we really are and we are not realizing at this time.

Let’s be modeled and polished by the most skillful master to become more as our DIVINE CREATOR wants us to be.
