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.

1… 2… 3… Grace

Grace is so powerful

How is this word so powerful.

I am a sinner in need of a savior.

I may try every day to be better, yet I fail daily.

The only perfection in everything is God.

To understand that GRACE is UNMERITED favor. To know we are UNDESERVING of our salvation, yet JESUS chose to suffer and take the place of a murderer on the cross to show us that SALVATION is HIM.

Yes we can live a life of sacrifice through religious ways and not be in relationship with Jesus.

Why?

The cross is mercy over sacrifice.

The cross is grace over law.

The cross is LOVE.

The cross is GOD choosing unmerited favor be granted to all who choose to believe in Jesus Christ as their only Lord and Savior.

We can live a blessed life on this side of eternity. How? Repent and be baptize and choose to Love your neighbor as you love yourself.

This means:

Let say I am your neighbor, I scream at my kids. (I am a homeschool mom, its bound to happen sometimes.) Careful not to stumble by judging me, please!!! I am imperfect!!! (Just giving an example.) I can stumble. I am NOT perfect. Remember God will be working on my character for the rest of my life. Just because I am Christian, it does not mean I am perfect. I fail and I stumble just like everyone else. Its how fast I choose to get back UP of that rut or failure that make us live in HOPE, FAITH, and LOVE.

Is God going to love me less for stumbling. NO(this is grace).

God knows my sins past, present, and FUTURE.

Do you really think you can shock your Creator?

God is not SHOCKED

Is God going to stop helping me for thinking wrong of people? NO(grace), yet He does ask us to repent and turn to Him to be washed from our evil ways. Basically the more of Jesus in my walk of life, then I will be silencing the voices of defeat, sadness, rejection, emptiness and so on…

To live by GRACE = unmerited favor.

We need to grow in Jesus Love daily. When we grow in His love we choose what HE loved more than our desires. This helps us build a life full of peace that surpasses all understanding.

If you choose to follow JESUS…

Its a MUST to read your BIBLE daily. Please READ READ READ even when you can’t understand. Your soul is being nourished even when your mind does not understand it yet.

May the Lord bless you. May you have eyes to see and ears to hear how much He loves you daily even when you and I do not deserve it.

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. 💓

Access the Kingdom daily

What are you believing God to be?

God’s promises include us walking in His Love.

God’s promises include us walking in His goodness.

God’s promises include us walking in His faithfulness.

God’s promises include us walking in His joy.

God’s promises include living in abundance.

God has promises all over His awesome Word (Holy Bible) to bless our way and to prosper our life the way only He can make our soul prosper.

So now, the question would be:

How do I access this promises?

This promises require obedience to God. How?

Jesus came and explained the Kingdom of God…

Repent every day because we are sinners in need of a savior and only Jesus can work on our character for daily transformation. Amazing! God created the moon, the stars, the earths vegetation, animals, all creation in 7 days, yet He decides to work on us daily. We are all His unfinished masterpieces.

What gives God access to our life daily?

We have to decide to tell Jesus daily that we need Him and to repent of our sins to enter the Kingdom of God as a Child of God. Jesus gave us access to the Kingdom by His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. The Blood of the Lamb (true passover Lamb) was Jesus that took away the sins of the world. We have to decide if we want to believe this and live a life full of amazing adventures with God. As you read your Holy Bible you will see. God permits the testing of our faith through afflictions, yet we do not live our whole lives in afflictions. Its important to God to test our faith to know is we are willing to remain faithful to God’s ways and not to the world’s ways.

To remain in this Kingdom we daily repent of our sins, spend time reading the Holy Bible, and live thanking God for the good and the bad in prayer. When we pray we should pray in private for everyone and everything that weights in our hearts. God wants to converse with us. When we pray, He is expecting a relationship. So, speak to God, how you would a trusted friend or family member.

Prayer for you today…

🌈 Jesus loves you, Jesus loves you, Jesus loves you. God wants to amaze you with His goodness, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, self-control. Give yourself a chance to experience what it is to be molded by your Creator’s love. Whenever we access God’s kingdom we get to live from this character traits that only point that you clothed yourself with Jesus righteousness that morning. ☀️

May you reign in life at the feet of Jesus. To submit to our Father in heaven means living in peace that surpasses all understanding. Careful who you share your life with, their words could determine life or death daily. 🔥

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.🌈

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.

Worthy is the blood of the lamb

Good Friday should be a day of remembering what our God did for us in Egypt with the blood of a lamb on door posts. How death passed-over all the Israelites homes only killing the first borns of the Egyptians. Just an example of what was to come through the blood of Jesus.

The blood of the lamb was the start of freedom from slavery in Egypt for the Israelites. So many centuries ago and we are still debating about it. We are honored to know that the God of miracles, signs, and wonders has always wanted to let us know, how much He loves His people. God was willing to kill innocent children to let His people GO. A God of justice and righteousness was willing to shed blood for every soul that He would call His people.

To this day I can see this God that seeks my attention and affection every hour of every day. My soul feels the tug to seek Him and praise Him as well. The love that He gives me to remain in overflow can only come from that secret place that I seek with all my heart. My heart is expectant always!

What about yours?
