Que Sera Sera…whatever will be, will be

Hello there and a Happy Monday to you!

I am sure you are probably wondering if this is a review of the song “Que Sera Sera” (although i do LOVE the song) and why on earth would I write a review of a song published in 1956? Be rest assured, it is not what you think, not even close 🙂 This is more of a reflection of a commonly used phrase that have lost its significance, partly because it has become so familiar. 

This phrase came to mind this morning as I was pondering on what to write about. I think it is a response to those times we get worried and also a call to action to make us take a step back from the situations that make us worry and look at the bigger picture.

So, I have been on an apartment search for over 3 weeks and it has been both a daunting and humbling experience. You see, I had only anticipated this taking no more than 5 days; I jokingly (but honestly) said to my one friend (Ngozichukwu, you are probably laughing out loud as you read this) “unlike you, I easily find good places to live”…I was THAT confident 😎. As the days rolled by, I began to nonchalantly stress about it (you know when you’re worried about something but you pretend like it’s no big deal?). Who was I kidding thinking I (on my own) could find a place in 5 days in a metropolis like Toronto? Ha! 😐IMG_7052

Although I had asked God for help, along the way, I started to rely on my own ability (like most of us do). Like the several times I would see a place online and He would tell me “Don’t waste your time going to view this place, you won’t like it” but I would still go anyways because it looked good from the pictures. And of course I would be disappointed when I got there. And then there was the one place He directed me to go view, of which I did and really liked (but of course I had to go see other places, just to make sure I am not missing anything). This action jeopardized my chances of having the place: I got the place and lost it; and then got ANOTHER place, and lost it too (funny story about this second one).

So now I was back to square one, but as I decided to start on the search again, I had this feeling that I should take a break, but of course, “resilient” Tolu 😏 wouldn’t listen, I still continued the search, all of which came up empty. But somehow God showed me who is boss and turned the situation around. Long story short, I was offered the initial place that I really liked, and at a REDUCED price.

So here is what I’ve learned this week:

  1. God knows EVERYTHING. Period! So listen to Him, no questions asked!
  2. Don’t worry about the small stuff (I know it is easier said than done, but life is never that serious)
  3. Yes whatever will be, will be. HOWEVER, it is possible to jeopardize what will be by your actions/inactions.
  4. And finally, if something is yours, no one can have it, because it was CUSTOM made for you ONLY, no one else.

As I bask in the assurance that my Father will always take care of me, I  leave you with these…

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him” 1 Corinthians 2:9

“...And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose is that people should fear himEcclesiastes 3:14

Unapologetically different and not Stressing because Que Sera Sera,

Tolu 😊

  1. I wish I will learn this lesson of trusting God whole heartedly; knowing that He is got me. But no.. I have to do something. I have come to understand that when we listen to God, we don’t face the hurdles that come with disobedience and trusting our strength.

    I’m glad you got a lovely apartment at a reduced price. That’s just great. And you look great, love the clutch bag!
