The Way in His plans

Plans the Lord has are way better than our own plans.

He is the Way so He knows the best available option. Ask! Seek!

I lived in misery, wanting to die (suicidal thoughts every day all my teen years and early twenties). I could not think of my original dream of having a big family because of all the horrible news that the world had to offer. I said to myself: “why bring a child into this fallen world?” I said: “why would I let them suffer as I also suffered.” So in my mind there was no hope for a future in this chaotic world for many years. Yet, JESUS had a better plan for my life all along! Wow and what a plan to change my mind!!! (Blessings that we do not deserve.)

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

This bible verse comes to life today as I acknowledge how The Lord used our first born daughter to bring us together as a family. God brought hope and a future. If it was for me and my husband we would not have lasted and made our matrimony possible. We were too immature and all about video games and having fun with our friends.

Our Father’s (God’s) plans of gifting us the blessing of our first born re-routed our lives in such a profound way. This morning, as I meditate on His promise, I am so in awe remembering this moment that started to change everything. His promises (written in the Holy Bible) supersede everything we could choose for our own lives. As I see my first born bloom into such a wonderful young lady, full of faith and wisdom from above is such a gift from heaven. All by His surpassing grace and not bay anything her father and I could have built in her. Yes, this world is different, but so are we. We empower her with love, giving her a voice, respect, and honor while we all learn to WAIT ON THE LORD for His goodness in the midst of the ups and the downs this life has to offer.

Whenever we miss the mark of love, we apologize and try again with all our hearts. No one is perfect and bringing baggage into our homes is normal. This is why God’s grace helps us be healed and restored to do it better than our own parents. We are far away from perfect but everyday praying for access to Jesus perfect love that cast out all fear from our midst. 🥰 His promises never return void.☀️ What a hope I can teach my children in the midst of a discouraging world.

Trust = walking on water = courage. Its never easy, this is faith… Trusting Jesus even when you can’t see the outcome because He will prove His faithfulness by guarding us in the midst of the fear, doubt, and the uncertainty.

He said GO, and we WENT. Traveling with my girls starting Covid season, trusting Jesus. We all know He is faithful. Believing Psalm 91 promises all the way.

God has the ONE for you

On December 25 2005 , I felt so depressed, so alone,and so tired from all the toxic relationships I had permitted myself to have for years. This day was a fork on the road, I felt it was enough of TOXIC and I decided to express my anger to God. I told God: “I deserved good people in my life since I was a good child.” I kept saying some really rough words to God in my anger and frustration. I was crying and really pleading to be heard.

That same night I wrote a friendly e-mail to five different people men and women on a “social media platform.” It was actually a Blogging/Messenger website. I saw their stories, blogs, pictures and decided to see who seem to walk towards love and family. It was decided, I needed new positive people in my life. Amazing enough, that same night, out of all the people I contacted, only one answered, MY NOW HUSBAND OF 13 years.

Something cool about this testimony is that my husband that same day did the same prayer in a very different way from His side of the world.

Through testimonies like this one Jesus can make it possible for you to experience this truth that sets us free from unbelief.

🙏Let me pray for you…

May the Lord open the way to meet that God fearing person in your life that will bring love, transformation, faith, hope, and peace. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

💞Jesus loves you and so do I.

Homeschooling

“…, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” Zechariah‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Its all God, I can’t do this without His grace. 💖

What a mission to work and mold our character as parents and as sons and daughters of God.
I live thanking Jesus for the day He woke me up to understand that homeschooling was possible. He used Michelle Marie and many other ladies to teach me what is to be brave and to choose your kids well being above commodity. In my case the reason for homeschooling came from violence at school. No, it was not bullying, it was not words. My girl got to my arms covered in purple bruises throughout all her body.

Yes we went for all the weight of the law to inflict the pain we wanted others to feel we where going through. Yet, Jesus set us free from desiring our own earthly corrupted justice and gave us a better moment of education and taught the other parents and their child what mark of LOVE and emotional support they where missing. God gave us all closure and also set us on a new journey called Homeschooling.

My priorities for a while where to get a title and a career in nursing. During this time while I was too busy following the vanity of life, others taught my kids: “How is not necessary to listen to your parents.” 💔 Yep, this happens! God was so good to permit a horrible affliction in my life, through my own bad choices to stir me in a new path to LOVE others and my family the right way. 💝

We can use our highs and lows to edify others. This is why I take my time to share a bit of our journey. May it be for your encouragement and to bless you. 💓

Dwelling = enter His rest

In the beginning Adam and Eve through sin seeking their own (earthly, limited) KNOWLEDGE broke the intimate relationship God wanted to have with all mankind. In the garden, before their sin, Adam and Eve lived in an intimate relationship with God, where He walked with them in the garden. This garden was created for all of us to have access to an intimate relationship with our Creator. Yet after sin came into the world, access to have intimacy with God was no longer available.

What would change this circumstances?

God made us with the purpose of relationship not to manipulate us or use us. God did not want to be an angry distant God. God wanted to remain close to you and to participate in our daily tasks and use our talents for His awesome plans on this earth. God wants us to learn how to love Him and learn also to love and serve one another.

This is where relationship with Jesus comes in. All religions ask you for works to be saved and have “peace.” Yet our true Creator decided to do all the work for us by sending His son to die for our sins (all of them, past and present) to clean us from our fallen world and invite us to connect with Him in intimacy. How? Well you just have to BELIEVE in Jesus Christ. When you decide to BELIEVE this makes you automatically a Child of God, a new creation the old things have gone and the new have come.

When you accept Jesus into your heart you decide to enter the relationship God always wanted you to have with Him. In this relationship He offers many blessings, yet it does come with many tests along the way. The good news is that Jesus died on the cross to bear the burdens of this world for you. In intimacy you can lay down your life for His purpose to be fulfilled and enter a rest that gives you peace in every circumstance.

Praying for you today…

May the blood of the Lamb of God silence the lies of this world today and everyday. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. 💝

☀️Jesus loves you and so do I.🌈

Butterfly transformation

I never realized how much creation shows us the way life is. As a butterfly our life is an eternal transformation. Jesus is working on us at all times in life. Of course, this transformation can only happen when we let Him come into our heart. How? You may ask. Just say:

“Jesus come into my heart and forgive all of my sins, turn my heart into your house of prayer.” In Jesus name. Amen. (This is just an example, you can do it however this prayer comes to you.) The most important part about this prayer is that your words have to align with your heart’s desire to become a child of God. 😉

A while back 11 years to be exact I realized how dead I was walking my path in this life. I was gifted with a near death experience that started to open my eyes to what truly matters. Through my cancer I started not caring about having a house, a car, a career, a title, new phone, tv, movies, games, etc.

All I realized I cared about was to let people know how brief life is.

All I started caring about was what God cared about.

Things I started to pray for and help whenever I had access to help:

The mom without a house.

The kid without a meal at school.

The friend that needed help with her kids while she took a breather.

The marriage of a loved one.

My friend’s career.

My friend’s sick loved ones.

My neighbor’s dog.

The abandoned cats around the neighborhood.

This started taking me to a path I never thought to find. I started to pray intentionally for everything and everyone. No one sent me to do it, I just saw others needs and I could not helped myself but help. The moment I realize how fulfilling it is to serve and meet the needs of others, I just never wanted to stop.

I am so thankful for the cancer that changed my life. I am so thankful that every affliction or process is a higher weight of Glory in Jesus. I can see that every time I go through some type of trial the Lord is waiting on the other side with a new opportunity for encouragement and a stronger faith. 🌈

Jesus loves you and so do I…

Today’s prayer…

May the Lord allow you to see all the trials he has permitted in your life and how He used them all for your good. Thank you Jesus for all good and bad that edify us in our faith walk. In Jesus name. Amen. ☀️

Be or not to bee

Bee lives 14 to 28 days.

A bee lives but a few days and visits daily a total of 5,000 flowers to pollinate them. What an impact this little faithful worker leaves. In such a short life this little bug makes it possible for many flowers, fruits, and vegetables to fulfill their purpose. The bee is not selfless in the act of pollinating all these flowers. These bees have in mind a bee hive to feed and help maintain.

The battle to keep the faith is a strong one. The idea that we need one another to fulfill the purpose God gave us on this earth should not be a shock. Bees need each other to build the amazing beehives they construct. The Kingdom of God is not just to have a nice time together but to practice righteousness, peace, and joy in Jesus Christ. Why would you need righteousness when you reach heaven? It all starts here on this side of eternity. The Lord molds our character to become more and more like His son Jesus. The day you are judge, you will be judge for your actions and your deeds. Are you heading in the right direction?

I loved a movie called Gladiator when the main actor quoted: “what we do in life, echoes in eternity.” Yes how right he is in what he is saying. For everything that we do, think, and say has a way to impact the life we live and the legacy we leave for our next generations.

My prayer for us today is…

May we choose to be as selfless and as a willing servant for all who need our encouragement or our help. May we submit to love one another as much as we love ourselves. May we learn to love who’s we are in order to love others the way they deserve. May we choose the will of our Heavenly Father above our own always. May we have an impact on souls as the bee does with such a little lifespan. In Jesus name. Amen.

WORDS that build UP

Affirmation is a powerful tool.

Want a better marriage?

Want a better relationship with your children?

Want a better relationship with people?

Love is the key to everyones hearts.

I only wish someone would have told me sooner the power of words in a child’s life. I am just so thankful I know now.

My marriage is taking a much needed “facelift” thanks to the power of words. Daily encouragement through words of affirmation is so powerful.

Lets all use it… be intentional!

Relationship and homeschooling

Relationship with Jesus is taking a road of friendship and joy. The way I see this is that when you least expected you are hanging out with Abba and don’t even notice it. I can see beyond my self sufficiency. I can see how much I need Abba now. I need Him to breath, I need Him to think, I need Him to work, I need Him to love, I need Him to laugh, and I also need Him to enjoy everyday.

My kids and I notice Him in everything around us now. We can see Him in a moving car. We can see Him in a homeless person. We can see Him in a sunset or a starry night. We are thanking Him for every opportunity we get to admire His creativity. We are understanding that beyond a friendship with Him is chaos and emptiness. We are understanding that letting go of Abba’s hand means to conform to a world that does not know how to love. Abba is love. We need His love and daily dosage of guidance to live.

I am thankful for every step He has turn in my ways through my life to make me start our homeschool process. Sometimes I just don’t know why He would ask this of me. Many times I am so thankful for the opportunity to see my kids flourish into very capable young girls. I get to teach them how to not only study but be part of a team daily to get stuff done.

I am thankful Abba has been transforming my mind for a long time now to be able to see the blessing in the chaos. I can see how at the end of the day He is the one to organize my schedule perfectly and make me feel as a Super mom. I know that I could never do this without my beautiful loving kids. They are the light of our house. They teach me joy daily. I know, I sure need it, hey! Who does not? Thank You Jesus. 💕

If we let go and let God take the reigns, life becomes fun. Even when you could never imagine yourself having the strength or the patience God is the one to do it all. I know that without Abba I am nothing. He is my patience, He is my reminder, He is my counselor, He is my helper, and so much more.

Pray with me, please…

Abba let me seek you every day with all my heart. Transform my ways to your ways.

In Jesus name, Amen.

In 2000 my angel encounter

Thank you, Abba, for your revelation. Thank You, Abba, for the Spirit of truth. Thank you, Abba, because you keep teaching how you loved me before the foundations of the earth (Ephesians). You keep teaching me that your love is an everlasting love (Isaiah). I keep seeing your fingerprints in so many difficult situations in my past. You always knew who I was and were I would falter and You, Abba, always gives us a way out. What an amazing way out you gave me at one time. Please treat everyone with love and respect at all times. Please be aware that we can encounter angels and not know it (Hebrew 13:2). I experienced this encounter when I was only 19 years old.

Yes, I was raised in a Catholic household, but our faith was just based on praying the Father’s prayer every night. A long time ago I started loving the occult and horror movies.  I was the one to invite all the girls for a slumber party and to have a Halloween night of horror movies. All my friends would say that I was so into the dark-side that it was freaky. I met friends that set me in a darker path to witchcraft and divination. The rabbit hole was very deep and easy to keep going and going not noticing how dark the path was getting. This was the worst time of my life almost all my relationships were toxic because I was toxic. I was full of so much hatred from my past I had no value for myself or anyone around me. I am sure the time spent going deeper into these practices made everything aggravate to the point of constant car crashes, toxic love life, self-hatred, suicidal thoughts, and so much more. Young and stupid as my husband says. I say God has a plan for everything that he permits in our lifetime. Everything that has been used to damage my faith in any way I can now say God is using it as a testimony to break free another life from despair. I know what it is like to walk in despair and no one present me to Jesus. God knows who to call that will be so intertwine with others needs that will never say no to save another soul from the pit, like he saved mine.

At this time in my walk of life, I worked at a bookstore. It was a tiny store and in the tourism area, so it was not that popular. I got to read a lot, especially on Sundays. I remember a Sunday afternoon, I was bored and wanted to find another book to read, this day I considered opening a book that was about Satanism. Told you! The rabbit hole was getting deeper and deeper into the dark-side. At that same moment that I was going to open the book a customer comes in. This customer was a very big man, blond, blue eyes, so perfectly looking. He spoke English and said that he was a Mormon Pastor from Roosevelt Roads (or so he explained). Well one thing led to another he kept talking to me about his ministry in Puerto Rico at the base, we laugh and joked a bit in the conversation. He was mesmerizing and so incredibly authentic. I had never met a man so poised and well dress and this nice. After he stop talking, he went to look at some books. He bought just one pretty quickly after the conversation. Then said thank you and left, he also had left the book on the counter. As I see it, I take the book and go after him to give it to him and he said: “No, that book is for you, you are light so don’t read what you were going to read, read this instead and let your light shine.” As soon as I see the title of the book, I had in my hand a King James Holy Bible. I was a bit unsettled, but I felt especial at the same time for this man saw something in me I could not see. This man represented the love of Abba in a time I could not begin to comprehend it. I tried to read the bible but I did not understand it so I did not persist. When I originally chose to read the satanic book, I had already felt a lot of discomfort regarding that decision. I did not open it, not even to just look over it. As soon as I was going to start reading it this man arrived. He was so mesmerizing I could not read. I remember He took all my attention away from the book as soon as he entered the book store. To have such a deep encounter with someone just made me automatically put the Satanic book back and started to read the Holy Bible the guy left. The gentleman wrote a message in the bible that repeated what he had said, to stay in the light. I am sure with all my heart that perfect looking man was an angel of God. Oh my God! I think it could have been Archangel Michael (He is also blond and has blue eyes.) We will never know who this man was but I know my Abba Father in heaven sent him to avoid me going way too deep into the darkness I was sinking myself into.

Psalm 91: 11-12 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

“Thank you Jesus for all the times you use your angels to keep us from stumbling. Thank you Abba for your everlasting love. Thank you because your love, your trust, your truth never wavers. Thank you Abba for being the light of the world. I am so thankful I had to PRAISE.”

Jesus saved me and made me a new creation, the old is gone and the new is amazing. I was actually remembering the time I always had something horrible happening like panic attacks, anxiety, depression, hate, suicidal thoughts, or fear. I was always feeling something bad was about to happen as soon as everything got quiet and nice. I am so thankful for peace that surpasses all understanding. I thank God for covering my thoughts with His thoughts, my needs with His needs, my love with His love, my dreams completely align to his will. I thank the Lord for peace that surpasses all understanding. To have peace in my mind is such freedom. For someone thinking all the time: “what is the point of this life? I don’t see anything of meaning in my life.” “The holy bible is just a fairy tale invented by men.” Oh my God I could go on with all the suicidal thoughts, but no, thank you. I have a new mind now, as Paul says in the New Testament “we have the mind of Christ.” I can say for sure that we can have it if we choose to sow into our faith, walking, to own it.

May God bring you the hunger for His word and the truth of His salvation.

If you have never accepted to have a relationship with Jesus, I can tell you how to start.

Repeat with me:

Jesus, I invite you into my heart, make your home inside of me. I repent of all of my sins, I want to be your servant today and always. In Jesus name. Amen.

If you did accept Jesus for the first time, try to find a bible study group to further your relationship with Him. If you can’t because you are in a part of the world it is not possible, don’t worry that God will give you the knowledge and the wisdom to understand (ask Jesus for revelation and truth), and ofcourse, buy yourself a Bible. If you can’t please contact me I will find a way to get you one ASAP.

May God bless you with His abundance of grace, love, and favor in your walk with Him.

Wisdom

Wisdom and understanding comes through meditating on Jesus (The Word of God). Always ask Holy Spirit to reveal truth, this are things you already know by heart but sometimes we need to review.

Revelation will come to you in your intimacy with the Lord. In your meditation He will offer what you need to contemplate on. With time His word is written in our hearts. God lets us access it. In intimacy with Jesus, who seeks a real relationship not a ritual. Jesus asks for transformation. Transformation means a process that can bruise and hurt… The end result makes it worthwhile, a promise becomes yours. Imagine believing that the blind can see. You will not doubt once if I should pray or not for a blind individual.

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭CSB‬‬

“My mouth speaks wisdom; my heart’s meditation brings understanding.”

Psalms 49:3 CSB

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight. Don’t be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. This will be healing for your body and strengthening for your bones.”

Proverbs 3:5-8 CSB

“I have filled him with God’s Spirit, with wisdom, understanding, and ability in every craft to design artistic works in gold, silver, and bronze, to cut gemstones for mounting, and to carve wood for work in every craft. I have also selected Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, to be with him. I have put wisdom in the heart of every skilled artisan in order to make all that I have commanded you: the tent of meeting, the ark of the testimony, the mercy seat that is on top of it, and all the other furnishings of the tent — the table with its utensils, the pure gold lampstand with all its utensils, the altar of incense, the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, the basin with its stand — the specially woven garments, both the holy garments for the priest Aaron and the garments for his sons to serve as priests, the anointing oil, and the fragrant incense for the sanctuary. They must make them according to all that I have commanded you.””

Exodus 31:3-11 CSB

Seek wisdom, walking in Jesus love for others with all your heart. Everything else will be covered by our Father in heaven. I have lived it. My family is living proof that He is the God of the impossible. 🥰 Believe and you shall receive. 🦋

Please pray with me today…

God I ask for forgiveness of all of my sins, the ones I know and the ones I may not know about, we thank you for everything you do to change the nature in us that does not represent your kingdom purpose. Thank you for always correcting us with your love and understanding. Build us up to your understanding, your ways, your thoughts, in Jesus name . Amen.

Jesus loves you and so do I.
