On Micro and Macro Decisions


First, what is micro, and what is macro?

Simply explained:

"micro refers to small things and 

macro refers to big things"

(Source: Writing Explained)

Best way to explain, is to enumerate a few.

Micro decisions:

What shall I eat?

What do I watch?

What clothes shall I wear?

Do I go to this event?

What will people think of me?

MACRO decisions:

Shall I ask her out?

Shall I go out with him?

What work shall I do?

What's the meaning of life?

What is TRUTH?

Micro decisions are small decisions that won't break, or make your life too much.

Sure, if you eat too much, or the wrong food, or go to the wrong event, you might feel sick. Sure, some illnesses end up long-term, so we have to be careful.

Or if you choose "inappropriate" clothes, for a supposed "appropriate" event, then people may shun you, and you may care what they think.

But MACRO decisions are life-changing.

If you ask the "right" or "wrong" person out, your life may change.

Because if you happen to really like them, you may just consider having them as a partner for life.

And you don't really know how people are, till you live with them, and that takes time.

There is romance, and then again, there is reality.

That being that, asking a person out, can be life-changing, especially if you go into relationships for the right reasons.

Hopefully, you both have the right reasons.

Work is also a MACRO decision.

If you care where your life and work will be headed, you'll really think about where you'll put your life juices in, for work can be noble, or it can be terrible.

Employers can be that, too.

Same with wages.

But if work is usually at least 1/3 of your daily life, you may want to really think about what work to do, for humans like to be happy.

Contentment is relative.

To each his own.

Asking about the meaning of life is surely a MACRO decision.

When you start asking, there may be no end to it.

In the asking, is the searching, the exploring, the hits, and misses.

In the asking, can lead you to joy, or catastrophe.

Paradoxically, what may seem joyful in the beginning, may bore you.

What may seem catastrophic, may actually turn out to be great.

How does one find out?

Only one way to find out.

Be in it.

And always, be gentle with yourself.

All of us are on the same boat, sometimes paddling, sometimes sleeping (for we all get tired paddling), sometimes finding ourselves in the midst of storms, or sometimes finding ourselves washed ashore.

And yes, some of us drown.

It's always a good idea, and a brave move, to ask about the meaning of life, for life will show you.

But, what is TRUTH?

Ah, now you're really on the boat!

Only thing is, you've got to have gone through the micro, and the MACRO, to get to this point.

For, by then, you're so tired of what people tell you, and nothing seems to work, or you're just demanding to know it all, and PLEASE, can you HAVE an ANSWER??!!

And by that, I mean you REALLY want to KNOW it all, without the attitude.

Now I've come to know TRUTH, only because I chose JESUS nearly 15 months ago.

It's GOD's TRUTH I chose.

I wanted to know EVERYTHING about GOD.

I was tired of the micro.

I wanted the MACRO.

And in that choosing, the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD started teaching me about Jesus.

As an example, He woke me up early today, inspiring me to write this piece.

I prayed for His will, and before that prayer was finished, the LORD inspired me with this article to develop.

I got all excited to do so.

The article is God's; it's not mine.

I merely serve the LORD.

The article practically wrote itself, seamlessly, effortlessly.

That's how it is to work for God.

That's how it is to listen to the Holy Spirit.

That's how it is to follow and BELIEVE in Jesus.

To further support the idea of this article, God led me back to a wonderful story I like on Martha and Mary (also two "M" -- God has humor, and precision, just so you know):

Luke 10:38-42

King James Version

38 Now it came to pass, 

as they went, 

that he entered into a certain village: 

and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

39 And she had a sister called Mary, 

which also sat at Jesus' feet, 

and heard his word.

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, 

and came to him, 

and said, 


dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? 

bid her therefore that she help me.

41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, 

Martha, Martha, 

thou art careful and troubled about many things:

42 But one thing is needful:

 and Mary hath chosen that good part, 

which shall not be taken away from her.

Micro and MACRO.

Martha and MARY.

Pretty easy to remember.

That's how GOD teaches me, for I, too, like humor, and precision.

And this is what I came to know about God:

GOD likes your COMPLETE attention.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.

Colossians 3:2 

King James Version

Thus, my decisions come pretty easily, each day.

God will work with who you are, what you are, what you have in your heart, what you're destined for, or what your "calling" may be.

He did CREATE you.

Our complete attention to His WILL and WORD, are gifts back to the LORD.


It's the BEST decision you'll EVER make.

God will know what to do with everything you've got in your heart.

Ask Him ALL the questions.

He'll never tire of your curiosity.

But He will tire of your disobedience.

When you've come to know things about God, you will not want to be disobedient anyway.

Take that FIRST step.

Commit to know EVERYTHING about God.

Watch what happens.

My work honoring the LORD's Words are testimony of all that.

I thought to myself, what would I do if today was my last day on earth.

I figured, it had to be something important.

So I prayed to God to please guide me.

As always, before I've even explored the idea in full, but merely asked the question, an answer was waiting.

I was to do what I originally wanted to do, which was to create a NEW blog, totally devoted to loving, praising, and honoring GOD, for such devotion and gratitude was long overdue our LORD.

Jesus did say:

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first 

and great commandment.

Matthew 22:37-40 

King James Version

It just followed I ought to honor God with all my heart, more than ever.

(Of course, God led me to create another blog, which was of great importance, too, for it pertained to His chosen people.)

We're all so caught up in the world, with its temptations, and distractions, always setting aside God, thinking the world mattered, when all that mattered was God.

For two days now, I had been thinking about that word "distraction".

At how the world continue to revolve around it.

And at how they still don't see the importance of the end times, wherein JESUS can return at any time, and take up His faithful.

The signs were all there.

More and more the urgency for us to praise God grew, as the world steeps in confusion, manipulation, corruption, greed, and vanity.

I wrote about how Jesus prophesied all that.

When the Holy Spirit of God inspires me to create, the creation becomes easy.

In no time at all, I was able to create two timely blogs, a week from each other.

Please welcome these blogs that are of VITAL importance to the world right now:

A Day in the LIFE of a BELIEVER


I believe in Jesus with all my heart.

I believe He is the SON of GOD.

I believe He suffered for us, was crucified, died, was buried, and rose on the THIRD day.

I believe He will RETURN at a time only known to the FATHER.

And thus, we all have to be ready for the Lord -- at ALL times.

We have to have repented, become born-again Christians, and offer our life to the LORD.

Only then will the Spirit of God teach us EVERYTHING about JESUS.

Every day that I study verses from Scripture, really trying to find out EVERYTHING about God, the more understanding is given.

It is the only way I could create blogs, and write the posts, which I share with all of you most every day.

But I am just a child, knowing nothing, but believing EVERYTHING the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD tells me, as He guides me each day as a "workman".

Well, THREE magnificent things happened early this morning:

1. I thought of these DECLARATIONS from JESUS, which had been in my heart for sometime now.

2. I was led by the Holy Spirit of God to a couple of IMPORTANT verses spoken by JESUS about Israel.

3. I was tasked to feature those verses, and in the process, the Holy Spirit led me back to an article I wrote last year, as I was just into my 8th day as a born-again Christian.

The AMAZING thing is that those three things were CONNECTED to each other, about WHEN Jesus will show up in Israel again, and why the Jews are non-believers.

What an AMAZING find for me!

What I really want you to know is that when you LOVE God with all your heart, or are sincere in wanting to know EVERYTHING about Him, He will make sure you do, through JESUS and His Holy Spirit.

Why is Israel so important in these end times?

That's the next step God wants me to explore.

For now, it's time to re-assess your relationship with God.

Search your heart.

How can we not LOVE and HONOR the CREATOR?

How can we not be grateful for the LIFE given?

How can we not acknowledge His GIFT of His SON, Jesus?

How can we not want to know the FACTS about JESUS?

How can we not acknowledge the LOVE, OBEDIENCE, and SACRIFICE of JESUS?

Very strange, indeed.
