Alguna vez lei que la psicologia inversa es tremendamente efectiva en individuos que batallan a muerte cuando les dicen que hacer.  Cuando pensaba en redactar esta nota hice conmigo mismo el experimento.  FUNCIONO!.  Pense en las cosas que estoy convencido que soy… cientos de cosas en mi caracter me molestan, las quisiera cambiar, lo intento con desespero pero algunas aún no cambian.  La psicologia inversa asistio al rescate.  Me trate de convencer de lo malo que era, de lo imperfecto a los ojos de Dios que debia ser, del rechazo que Jesús debe sentir por mi cada vez que mis defectos hacen fiesta.  Que clase de experiencia… descubri a mi YO interno batallando a muerte con esas acusaciones (ver la frase subrayada al comienzo del parrafo) y experimente el amor de Dios delicadamente.  Para Dios no era malo sino justo (1 corintios 5:21), No me veian mal los ojos de Jesús, no sentia rechazo sino acogida.

Se, por mi padre y amigo (Mons. Roberto) que San Francisco de Asis pasaba horas frente al crucifijo preguntandose: Quien soy yo? y a la vez le decia al crucifijo Quien eres Tú?…  A mi este tiempo se me paso en pensar quien NO era yo… fue un descubrirme “por descarte”.  Es mas facil espiritualmente (creo que progresamos más) si reconocemos en nosotros mismos lo que no somos para ganar la conviccion de lo que somos en Cristo.

Viviendo aqui en Orlando, FL comence a escuchar en la radio un grupo cristiano tremendo.  Su nombre es algo asi como “Fundiendo coronas” ya el nombre me atrapo.  Si los planes de Jesús salen como esperamos (Dios me libre de que mi terca voluntad le cambie sus planes) algún día estare en el cielo y una de las primeras escenas que pedire ver es esa del capitulo 4 de Apocalipsis, el versiculo 10 habla de fundir las coronas… “Casting Crowns” explica en sus videos que el exito de sus canciones radica en que antes de ser canciones fueron oraciones que han nacido durante los servicios de adoración que ellos presiden en sus congregaciones por eso me parecen tan ajustadas a la palabra de Dios (son palabras inspiradas por Dios basadas en Su Palabra).  Tienen muchas que me gustan GLORIOUS DAY; IF WE ARE THE BODY; JESUS, FRIEND OF SINNERS, VOICE OF TRUTH, AT YOUR FEET, IF WE’VE EVER NEEDED YOU pero ninguna logra lo que WHO AM I? (Quien soy yo?) logra en mi… Me recuerda lo poco que soy y a la vez lo valioso que soy para Dios.  Tengo amigos que hablan ingles y la entienden pero me gusta tanto que la quisiera compartir con todos (hablen ingles o no) por eso yo mismo la traduje… no esta textualmente traducida porque intente ajustarla lo mas que pudiera a la estructura de la melodia.  El video no es para nada atractivo… solo tres fotos, el texto y la cancion.  Es mi oracion que pueda hacer en quien lo vea, el mismo efecto tan poderoso que esta cancion logra en mi.   Descubre con ella quien eres tu…

A quien temere… si soy Tuyo!

I once read that reverse psychology is extremely effective in individuals who struggles fearly when they are told what to do. When I thought of writing this post I did the experiment myself. WORKED!. I thought about the things I am convinced that I am… hundreds of things bother me of myself, I’ve wanted to change them, I try desperately but some still remain the same. Reverse psychology called to rescue. I tried convince myself how bad I was, How imperfect in the eyes of God I am, the rejection that Jesus must feel for me every time my flaws go wild. What an experience!… I discovered my inner battle to death with these accusations (see the underlined phrase at the beginning of the post) and experience the love of God tenderly. For God, I was not bad but righteous (1 Corinthians 5:21), The eyes of Jesus did not look me bad, I did not feel rejection but reception.

I knew from my father and friend (Fr. Roberto) St Francis of Asis spent hours in front of a crucifix asking it: Who am I? and then told the crucifix: Who are you?… To me this time I spent it thinking about who I was not… was a discovering myself  “by elimination”. It is easier spiritually (I think we progress more) if we recognize in ourselves what we are not to win the conviction what we are in Christ.

Living here in Orlando, FL I started listening to the radio a tremendous Christian group. Its name is “Casting crowns” and the name caught me. If God’s plans go according to Jesus (God save me from my stubborn will that could change His plan) someday I’ll be in heaven and one of the first scenes I’ll ask to see is that book of Revelations chapter 4, verse 10 speaks about casting crowns… “Casting Crowns” explains in his videos that the success of their songs rest on the fact that before “songs”, they were “prayers” that were born during worship services which they preside in their congregations that’s why I seem them so tight to the word of God (words inspired by God based on His Word). They have many songs I like GLORIOUS DAY, IF WE ARE THE BODY, JESUS, FRIEND OF SINNERS, VOICE OF TRUTH, AT YOUR FEET, IF YOU’VE EVER NEEDED but none achieves what WHO AM I? achieves in me… It reminds me how small I am and yet how valuable I am to God. I have friends who speak English and understand it but I like this song so bad that I wanted to share with everyone (English speaking or not) so I translated it myself … not literally because I tried as much as I could to fit into the structure of the melody. The video is not attractive at all… only three photos, lyrics and song. It is my prayer that it can do on those who sees it the same powerful effect that this song does me. Discover who you are with it…

Whom shall I fear … cause I am Yours!
