Grace is sufficient

It is not by our way or strength that we will reach our faith. Its only by His gift of grace.

“For it was only through this wonderful grace that we believed in him. Nothing we did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the gracious gift from God that brought us to Christ!”

Ephesians 2:8 TPT

One day God decided to share with me the gift of His grace and give to me the ability to understand His Word. He gave me the opportunity to know Him and feel His fire in my heart. It felt like a hug directly in my heart. Something so amazing was happening in my car when I heard a song saying the Words of Isaiah through a singer saying “DO

NOT FEAR for GOD IS WITH YOU”(singer) , “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Isaiah 43:2 KJV

My fear of the cancer melted away, I had hope that everything will turn out good. Then my life was on fire to seek for His truth everywhere I looked.

“My love for you has my heart on fire! My passion consumes me for your house! Nothing will turn me away, even though I endure all the insults of those who insult you.” Psalms 69:9 TPT

Only God knows the insults and the prayers that are being manipulated against the ones walking in His love. We will pursue His truth no matter what comes against us. Even our own loving family. The love that God shares with us fills us in such a way that the world could never compare.

Only by God’s decision through His grace is that we are given the gift of knowing His love, peace, and joy… My hunger for His truth came through trials and tribulations in my diagnostic. I went to seek Him at a Christian book store and left with a book and a CD. Those two amazing works of arts that God put in someone else’s creativity allowed me to meet God. I decided to seek the spiritual because I always knew it existed. I had only experience the dark side of it. Now it was time to know the Creator. Now it was time to renew my mind. Now I was ready for His truth, not what I wanted to hear. I came humble at His feet for His truth, His revelation, and most of all believing in His healing and restoration.

“Someone living on an entirely human level rejects the revelations of God’s Spirit, for they make no sense to him. He can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit.”

1 Corinthians 2:14 TPT

Feeling thankful for His gift of grace. Nothing I could have done, could have earned it. I just decided that this world is not about me but about Him our Creator and His son’s love for us.

Living to make Abba known.

I love you. God loves you even more!

May you find Him everywhere you look today. May His grace meet you where you are in your faith walk. In Jesus name. Amen.

Purpose

Long time contemplating this word. P U R P O S E. Always thought I was walking my purpose. God has a way of challenging our walk of faith. I am starting to understand that when I start to get comfortable and my walk is not challenging my faith, something will have to be altered. This past week I was surprised by God’s transparency about a difficult situation. This same week I had been helping and counseling some friends. Everything God brought to my attention guiding a friend was really needed by me. God used difficult circumstances in other people’s lives to teach me through my own words of guidance and counseling. So thankful for the great teacher we serve. God is so creative that He can use any situation as a teaching moment to question your walk of faith. “For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 CSB

sword-of-god

My faith was challenged this week by two options. God knows how much I wanted to go back to work and achieve our new financial goals. God also had other plans by having always the best interest in mind for me and my family. After 2 years of no job offers, I had left everything at God’s feet and kept serving others since He placed it in my heart to do so. This week something shifted, this week random moms, random students, my own kids physically hurt, and professionals at school let me know how much the education system does not meet our standards. I received a call, only to be asked: if my 6 year old had a blood disorder? I asked: why? They told me her lip would not stop bleeding after another incident, same girl as the last time, broke her lip “accidentally with her head.” As God does how he wants, he brought transparency through a 3rd grader. This third grader told me the whole story and it definitely was not accidental, and also this girl explained that supervision was not available at the moment. Less than 5 month of school and my youngest has had her lip broken twice, by the same girl. Oh, and the school investigated and “did not find anything wrong with the situation.” At the same time in the other classroom my oldest had been bullied and no teacher cared to intervene. She likes to read in quiet times, and this gets her bullied because it’s not what regular 5th graders do today. So now I go back to square one. A year before this one I was in the same crossroads do to bullying, asking myself if I homeschool or change schools? No more schools! We decided, as a family, we will homeschool. I also started praying to God for confirmation about home schooling and to include in his confirmation all the resources needed to pursue this challenge. As funny and as effective, prayer with God is, that same day a friend published on Facebook a memory of her decision in 2011 to start homeschooling her son. She was swearing how bless she was for making this decision. I asked her more about it. She gave me all the resources and basically told me the same things I thought about this. She had told me she would have never chosen homeschooling. God chose this for her. This is exactly where I was. After all this confirmation. God also gave me the opportunity to speak to another homeschooler mom that helped with our final decision. I can tell you that I felt like screaming and running into my room and staying hidden to avoid this new step we had to make. This is not a decision that I would like to make at this moment in my walk with God and he knows it. I admire how much he has changed me and how much he has transform my obedience. I understand now that to Step UP and be strong and courageous is part of having a bit of human uncertainty somewhere in that decision.

Now the interesting part of this whole story. Like I already mentioned, I had been looking to go back to work to meet our financial goals. Well that afternoon my husband and I had already decided on homeschooling, it was set. To my surprise, a few minutes later, I get a call: “we are calling you to offer you a position.” For 2 years I had not received 1 call. The day we decide to do something for our kid’s future and our family’s well-being, this happens! I could have chosen that door of financial freedom. The incredible thing was that I remember the last time we contemplated the same thing I was left without homeschooling and without the job I was offered. I knew this time I would follow what the Lord placed in my heart with fear and trembling. I did not think I was capable of homeschooling, but God has been surprising me with all the information and resources he has given us to achieve it. I knew this call was just to make me stumble and I was surprised by this revelation and started to laugh uncontrollably for more than 2 minutes. My kids where asking me in the car, are you ok mom? Mom? Mom? I could not stop for so long. This uncontrollable laughter felt like such a blessing and a breakthrough. Choosing my kids over our finances one more time was such an amazing moment. I had done it when my first baby was born but now after all the sacrifices and the dreams placed on hold for more than 10 years to still make this choice, it was definitely God in me making it for me! Soo bless to understand this word today…

“Enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it. How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it.”Matthew 7:13-14 CSB

Trust me I am completely intimidated by starting to homeschool. I know for a fact that in my weakness He is made strong. I had the opportunity to speak to a very wise lady from my church and she let me know that same day: “God qualifies the called.” It’s definitely a blessing to be surrounded by women of faith and wisdom that surpasses all earthly understanding. This just gives access for God to always confirm what He decides to do for you in your walk of faith.

Please pray with me today…

I thank you Lord for all the wonderful women of faith that you place in our path and I also thank you for all the difficult people because they build us up and challenge us to go deeper in our faith and to seek truth daily.

Amen.

The Purple Butterfly

Thank you Lord. What a powerful way to view the butterfly!

survivorheal

`  I know I tend to be an over thinker sometimes.Mind forever is working now because im finding healing. so I will share this with you because its inspiration to me: Not many stop and think of a butterfly and what it means in a spiritual way. I know myself I have seen many butterflies enjoyed their beauty but didn’t stop and think of Gods purpose for every creation he has gave to us. The butterfly has such powerful meaning other than its glory. a butterfly symbolizes change, rebirth, renewal and happiness. Butterflies represent the joy and happiness of transformation. This insect starts life as a caterpillar, then spins its cocoon.

During the time the caterpillar lies dormant sequestered off from the rest of the world, there is a period of great transition and change. Finally after this time of self-imposed seclusion and transition, the caterpillar awakens and emerges, transformed, forever changed into a…

I’m not called to show people their darkness–

They already know about that.

I’m called to show them His light.

Rock your world

Oh, what a powerful understanding! I had to say this every time I would pray for someone. This is something the Lord had been teaching me constantly. Now I get to be obedient. My husband or my kids are my sidekicks when we go and bless whoever God sets out to bless.

Last night we got to go to another funeral. In this funeral my husband got to see one of his long time friends. A very nice veteran with a lot of history in and out of war zones in the middle east. He is a very elegant, honest, and humble person. He was explaining all medical complications due to trauma. Its amazing what these men have to go through in a war.

God definitely showed my husband this was a God encounter. So he started testifying about the God we know, the supernatural, always with us Jesus our redeemer. The guy was so hurt by religion he did not want anything to do with it. We mention about my position. I explained that I used to be a atheist and I did not believe in religion, that I believe in having a real relationship with Jesus. This made him listen.

That is when he started to be interested but not so convinced. I still went for what God wants which is to love even when they don’t know. God definitely showed up in prayer. He was just taking away all his trauma and past from his heart and filling him up with His amazing goodness and love. This man’s eyes where so moved and watery, I knew God had done what He came to do. He did not even want to let go of my hand. God is faithful. God is always wanting to love all his children.

After this gentleman, in that same funeral, a man started to speak to me while I was waiting for my husband. This man poured out his life traumas and his hurts so fast, I was amazed God wanted to heal someone else. This man let me know how he resented His father for being a violent drunk. He also resented God for loosing his mother, first to prison, and then dying early due to cancer. While his father continued his life without deserving it.

God through prayer opened his heart to release all that pressure and lifetime disappointments to pour into His spirit His love and goodness. With God’s love and healing this gentleman was moved. He was blessing my family and so thankful for such a moment. He was telling my husband how lucky he was to have me and my daughters. This is the love of God that was just poured into his heart, now he was just overflowing with God’s goodness and love for others.

God heals broken hearts.

God transform any situation.

God is waiting for us to let go and let God.

God is always available to bless and renew every one of His children.

I pray that God makes you feel His loving embrace through his wind. In Jesus name. Amen.

God loves you and so do I.

Different faith

God is having His way with everything in my life. I really can’t even understand. I decided not to ask. All I know is I am here to serve.

Trust and He will wow your world. 🤩

Thank you Jesus.

May God put a new heart and a new spirit in you. 💛

God loves you and so do I.

Righteousness or Justice…

❤️I am thankful for all that prayed for my family. God really is an amazing God. He definitely guided us and instructed us in a way we could have never chosen without living in His unlimited LOVE. ❤️

Our Story, with what we learned this past December.

📖📖📖📖

According to the dictionary self righteous is define as being convinced of one’s own righteousness especially in contrast with the actions and beliefs of others : narrow-mindedly moralistic.

According to the dictionary to be moralistic is characterized by or expressive of a narrow moral attitude.

Moral is conforming to a standard of right behavior.

🔗🔗🔗🔗

When we seek a true relationship with God our moral code changes. Each and everyday you are transform to assume a way of life equal to the way Jesus lived on earth. God asks us to pray His beautiful prayer “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” God expects no less of us. He is giving us His guidelines of how to live with His love on earth as it is in heaven.

In a world where humans in our self righteousness want others to pay for any wrong doing. We seek vengeance but we call it justice. The world through the judicial system has taught us in a way that its ok to seek vengeance. Everything inside us says otherwise. Every time you go to court, it feels so cold and so unnecessary. The human heart its willing to forgive and to be just if we all choose love over our egos. True justice comes from God and his grace. God gave his only son as a sacrifice for every sin we already had done and every other sin we were about to commit. Our sins are not a surprise to God. He keeps seeking you even in your worst moments. He loves you even when you are planning vengeance. He seeks you out every moment you give Him an opportunity to show you His grace and His love. Thinking only over what is true justice. True justice is God’s justice. “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” ❤️God is love. The justice He asks of us is considered wrong or unimaginable in this day and age. He said it in His word: the world will call bad, good and the good, bad. In every way I can only say that to truly see with God’s eyes, we have to be willing to die to ourselves. 🙌

😳We all know that the judicial system most of the time takes too long to help or it just does not represent what we are trying to achieve. Then again we keep going back to it hoping for a better result🤦🏽‍♀️. Our daughter was attacked at school recently. A place you hope she will be secure when you leave her each day💔. We wanted justice! God showed us that His justice is LOVE, God decided for us that is wrong to use a system that will break families apart.👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

Today at Church feeling guilty for thinking about our justice “vengeance” because its My Baby 👼🏽getting hurt. God decided to make all the service about Joy. In my anguish he decided to impart my soul with His Joy. God knows I am not perfect and I did wanted Justice. He taught me that my child is His baby first. That my decisions go through Him. God helped me understand that even in the most difficult times when we are making wrong choices He will pursue me with all His Love so I can redirect my steps in the path He wants for our lives. My family and myself are in the perfect Hands of Jesus.

May this help others see with God’s Love!

God bless!

🙌❤️🙏📖📝

Loved ones

Its a challenge to forget what the world may say or how the world may judge. For me, I don’t really see the challenge because I have met the one I have to submit to every day. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.

Most Christians I know can not and will never understand the challenge of pursuing a deep spiritual life surrounded by love ones that can’t see beyond your old life. I am walking in faith and praying each and every day that God gives them eyes to see and ears to hear.

I pray and bless each person and I consider and pray for my family daily. For most of them I know they are waiting for this part of my life to pass. The incredible thing is that this is here to stay. Sometimes when the Spirit moves us into a God appointment you are not thinking about others feelings or needs. Its hard because I still love them and they are a priority but above them comes God.

I hear my friend saying to me how he is waiting for the day he can see me again being the life of the party. I no longer want to party the way the world wants to party. I want to go to God’s “disco” church. Used to have a family member that called Church “God’s disco” to this day I find it funny and yet so true. I want to represent His truth.

His truth in my life today is…

A God life has changed my wants and needs completely. I am so thankful because I can see breakthrough in the life of so many through prayer and a loving message. I am driven to love, that is to love whoever God sets out to inject with His truth daily.

A life full of God is all we need to live complete.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭CSB

Keep dying to self

The Lord will always be the same. The human condition is the one to over think everything, even the never changing love of God.

The Holy Bible was given to us as an instruction manual for life. The only difference is that the author in this Holy book can’t wait to hug your soul. I tell you by experience. Its such a LOVE and Peace that transcends all understanding.

When we choose to follow the Word of God we can see changes we would never see by our own strength. Always doing as Paul explains renewing our mind thinking on things above and not bellow. Meditate on the wonders of heaven is what he is explaining. Because your eye determines what your soul is all about.

The world is always seeking control. We always want to control our kids, the school, our work, our home, our cars, traffic, church, friends, appointments, doctors, medical complications, I could go on without end. The reality is that God wants us to learn to:

LET GO AND LET GOD.

What a challenge for the world we live in!

I set out 8 years ago to make sure I would start testifying how God saved my life. I promised God that if He saved my life I would live for Him. So in this wonderful journey I keep seeking my Abba. I am so thankful that I can see God day by day acting through love in the lives of others using a yielded vessel like me. I am not the only one, thank the Lord! I have many more people I have met along the way that are pressing in to really know who their Father is.

Thanks to all the people that are moving to testify and live for our Father I have been able to keep seeking. I have been able to not feel completely alone. I have been ridiculed and placed in extremely uncomfortable situations. I have kept going forward. I know that Jesus was also persecuted and though as a drunk and ridiculed so many times. I know that those who keep pressing in can go through tough circumstances. All I can do is know who my father is and keep moving forward at His feet.

Its a challenge to bless others when they can’t see its not about you. Some judge your intentions and think its all about seeking to shine. I hope to shine Jesus’ light. I hope to emanate His love and His hope to the world. He gave me a new chance and an new life. I am blessed for that.

I will live to testify to all the nations about how Great is our God. ❤️

Thank You Jesus for a brand new life, full of adventure and mystery and hunger for more of You Lord.

Pray with me today:

God thank you for breathing one more day.

God I thank you for opening spiritual eyes, ears, and nose.

God I thank you for using us to bless one more soul today.

In Jesus name, Amen.

God loves you and so do I.
