Believing = Receiving

I need to tell you a beautiful story. Now this story is not just a story, this is the adventure part of my walk with God.

Coming from being an enemy of God, like the song says His reckless love left the 99 to seek me and find me and bring me back to His kingdom purpose.

This walk has been for the past 11 years since I accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior. I have been reading his bible since 2010. Today on October 27, 2018 I can say that I work daily on understanding His word and His promises. I have experienced His love, His peace, His joy, His goodness, His faithfulness, and today He confirm His security for me and for my future generations.

Today I went to take my well behaved and diligent children to the park. At this park we had just arrived. I was seeking God’s nature to see if I was lucky enough to find a butterfly’s cocoon for a picture. My girls were enjoying some swings in the distance and this man came up to them through a hole in the fence. I noticed this move and immediately headed to them. As soon as I got there the girls told me the man had ask them from the fencing to get him his glasses and to bring the glasses over. As soon as this man sees me walking towards him, he started telling me how he was just asking the girls if he had left his sunglasses in that area. This was not true because my kids don’t have a reason to make up what he said. So, I just said fine and did like if I was just walking to exercise and approach the car and took a picture of the license plate. At this exact same moment, a beautiful woman God had already highlighted to me when I got to the park walk up to me and another lady that notice the situation and immediately approached me and I ask her if she had seen that man walking the area before. She confirms she had not. This other lady God made walk all the way over from the other side of the park started to tell me how she is the leader of a group for fitness at the park and she knows the ones that can fix the fencing immediately and that the kids are safe because everyone in the park knows each other. So incredible how I was never afraid for my children, but I was for other children in the future. Why? I now know. I now see God’s truth over the worlds truth. I have been learning a few promises from the book of Joshua chapter 1. The most important one is that he gives you all place that your feet touches and no one can come against you because God is with us. He calls us to be courageous. This is what I am walking in a faith that believes His word over what the world wants us to believe. Paul says that we have to be transform by the renewal of our minds. He also explains in the New Testament that we should not conform to the ways of this world and that this world teaches us fear. The word says that Perfect Love cast out fear. I have been perfecting my love walk because I have been loving those who hurt me, those who persecute me, those who are poor and unwanted. God knows as long as I get an opportunity to love on someone, He calls me to I do it, I do, no questions ask. This is what happens. God’s favor was upon my family because he brought these 2 remarkable women of God. This lady the one God had highlighted from the beginning that came walking from really far away, being a doctor and having a hurt foot. God place her in my way, so I can know that another woman of God is using her time to bless each and every person that crosses her path. I told her how powerful the presence of the Lord was with her there. I explain how powerful her service was to me and my walk-in faith. Basically, told her where I came from: “Panic attacks always thinking the worst could happen to my kids.” Now I am a lion for Christ always serving putting His kingdom comes 1st (Matthew 6) and loving and trusting my kids to his powerful, loving, and graceful hands.

Please pray with me today…

God, we come boldly to the throne of your grace knowing you are with us and that you comfort us with your word and your truth revealed through your Holy Spirit. I place each and every person I love in your hands knowing Psalm 91 security, blessings, and promises are upon them. Thank you, Jesus for your freedom and the ability to have eyes to see and ears to hear in faith today and forever. Amen.

The Purple Butterfly

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

`  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.

First Place

Prayer of Love for my First Love.

May you reading this prayer come to know this LOVE that completes your world.

You take first place in my heart.

I wake up and say, Thank You that I took another breath.

Thank you that you take the time to guide my steps daily.

Thank you that you take your time to guide my husband and my children into their best destiny set before them in your name.

Thank You God, Abba, Father, My First Love, My everything… I praise your name! I exalt your name. I am so bless to know your name.

I am so thankful for your calling and your truth.

Children that never had a mother or a father know the love they have in you.

Good good father

Thankful to see how God just transforms lives. Jesus works in ways that no one can understand. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Jesus deservers all praise. 🙌

Jesus has resurrection power. We have been given the same gift at the cross. Jesus’ blood redeemed us and as he was risen we were given the promised Holy Spirit. So the Spirit of (power, love, and sound mind) that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me and lives in you. We are to me capable of living Holy Lives. This is all said by a sinner.

I used to be an atheist. God meets you were you are. His blood washes us clean daily and transforms us daily. If we choose to go through this challenging process. Basically daily deciding to live to bless others and not your own life.

I am blessed to understand to let go and let God do what He wants, when he wants. Its not about egos or pride. This is all truth. The truth that His Spirit of Revelation and His Spirit of Wisdom can give to anyone that decides to honestly seek him. “Seek the Lord and his virtue. Seek his face always.” 1 Chronicles 16:11

The word used for love/relationship in hebrew bible basically explains deep relationship. The type of deep relationship that you seek in your partner for life. God is waiting for people that want to know WHO HE REALLY IS.

The God I know…

God is a good good FATHER.

Love

Understanding

Giving

A father that loves us also instructs…

Teacher

Truth

Justice

Righteousness

We should feel bless to know and say daily that we are a child of God. Lets live to serve Jesus, who saves our life from a pit. Jesus (son of God) gave HIS life for us. He did it so we could be seated in heavenly places. To live on earth as it is in Heaven. Open heavens are all around us. We have to be willing to seek. Decide to seek Him and you shall find Him. My hunger for Him is never ending and that is how God allows us to see daily testimonies in our lives and the lives of others around us.

See this awesome video…

I found my life in this moment… my baptism.

https://youtu.be/AxH8Q8ue65o

Please, pray with me today…

God give me a hunger that never ends for your truth. Allow me to open my bible daily without missing one day. Please wash me clean and make me more and more like Jesus. Amen.

God loves you and so do I.

Full of surprises

My mother was 4 days in the hospital.

I did despair within my faith at some point when I saw the amount of medicines given to her. She came in with only one medicine and was placed on 10 different ones. Some of those medicines made her confused and aggressive with me and everyone around her. I knew this was not normal. I know my mother, she is not an aggressive individual. I remain in prayer. I remain seeking to serve others within our situation.

Her heart was giving her a lot of pain. She was hurting and was taken to another hospital, the best on Cardiovascular health.

Cardiac Catheterization was the procedure she was going to go through to see what was going on in her heart. According to all nuclear studies done on her body, her heart was only working 20% and they needed to see how they could help her by removing any blockages or any damage to the heart.

My mother went in with a 20% working heart. The doctor explained to me all complications which were many due to her body weight and body prosthetics she had in the way to access her heart. I asked the doctor: “If she was your mother or your grandmother, would you do the procedure?” He got upset at me and explain in a very rough way how he was a professional and he was there to do his job and was hired by my mother to do it. So when he finished getting upset my mother said to me: “its ok, Carla.” So I ask the doctor: “wait, wait, please don’t leave without me blessing your hands with a prayer, you are about to touch my mother.” He let me pray over his hands. God was amazing with this doctor. He blessed him and gave him His love, His peace, and His knowledge of letting God take control of everything He did.

So blessed to know this man was transformed by my mother’s miracle. The doctor came out of the procedure, he told me there were no blockages and her heart was working a perfect 55% which is the equivalent of 100% perfect working heart. Glory be to Jesus. 🙌

While my mother was in the process of the Cardiac Catheterization a young man was around me. I knew I had to help this lady because God gave me a word of knowledge of her hurting shoulder so I prayed for her pain to go. She was blessed with God’s love and attention. While this was happening this young man name Jose was always alert and following my actions. I felt I needed to talk to him because he may be going through some kind of pain. To my amazement, I explained word of knowledge and he admitted to have pain in His lower back. I prayed for Him, WOW what God did to this young man was amazing. Sometimes God lets me know when he transforms a life. He did transform this life and took away all his pain. God gave him hope when his beautiful marriage and family was at the brink of destruction. God is never late, He is always just in time. This man gave his life to Jesus and was full of hope in future grace. On the other hand the other lady did not want me to mention Jesus because of her spiritual beliefs. God still loved her and let her know He is her father and she is loved. If I had let one person offend me for not wanting to speak about Jesus, Jose would have never received Jesus minutes later.

Thank you Lord for using me in your Kingdom Purpose daily. I want to always live to find future grace.

Pray with me today…

Thank you Jesus for open eyes, ears, and understanding hearts to your Kingdom purpose.

God loves you and so do I.

Idols

In the ancient times, idols were considered statues made of different materials like mud, gold, or silver. People would take time and adore them and pray to them. To this day some people still have these idols. The incredible thing is that we could give the place of an idol to many other things.

Entertainment and psychological analysis has been taking over the world. According to many psychological studies everything can be turn into an obsession, therefore becoming an idol in our lives. You can name a subject and there is a self help or dummies book or an online course to help you master the area you want to master in your daily lives.

The reality is that we are all made with different capabilities. What if you are trying to master something God wants to help you let go and let Him take over. He can have a better way than the way we developed in our own understanding.

When my first daughter arrived I remember all the books and online articles I read to be the best mom I could be. I wanted her to have the best of everything. I needed to know I was completely right, in every decision I made over her life. At the time I did not have a personal relationship with God. My thoughts when she arrived was “This is a small beautiful child that depends on me and does not come with instructions.”

Its easy to fall into these situations. All we end up doing is making an idol in our lives. Something that takes all of our daily time, effort, and energy in thought, could become your idol.

God gave us an awesome understanding of this when we kept seeking him in prayer. Our eldest daughter went through bullying to the extreme. That’s when God taught us that we had no control over her life. We were going to have to trust God with her life and decisions from now on. He closed all doors to be able to help our daughter on our own terms. Then we submitted in prayer a door open wide to get to educate the other kids parents on treating a girl with respect. It was a family mediation at a police station. These individuals were really afraid to be there due to a grade school incident. As a family that works in entertainment, the priority on moral values in this household was limited. I am sure this mediation helped all the kids involved understand how to treat each other within boundaries and respect.

My husband and I learned once more the power of prayer. We keep praying because we understand that our kids needs are all placed in our Creator’s hands. No need to obsess about their well being, just need to place everything in prayer and petition at all times. Let go and let God is something that my husband and I are adopting day by day. Oh and it is a work in progress. Sometimes we fall off the wagon of faith and just try to get back up as soon as possible.

These days Idols can be anything at all. Televisions shows, cooking, tablets, cell phones, facebook, instagram, youtube, laptops, cars, hobbies, or movies consuming so much time in a person’s life that they don’t have time to remain still and quiet to seek peace, love, joy, goodness, and so much more in their daily lives.

We don’t have it mastered yet and I know that its on purpose so we decide to submit in prayer and petition daily every decision and every life we care for. Only God has a better plan then the one we have. God can make everything better daily. To live in His perfect peace should be our daily goal.

Pray with me today…

Jesus bring your perfect peace to every thought and action today. Help me submit all my thoughts to you and your will in our lives.

God loves you and so do I.
