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?

Matthew 7:7 Seek and you will find…

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.

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.

A girl’s miracle of love

My daughters and I have been sharing a lot of stories on testimonies happening all across the world through the humble willing hearts of children. They have been hearing continuous stories on wonders and miracles. One of my kids has even seen the power of prayer in my own life and the life of her father. We have been reading books on how to believe that the kingdom of God is near. I can recommend the book we have been reading for a while: “Here Comes Heaven.” Of authors Bill Johnson, Mike Seth, & Marilyn Seth.

Air conditioner testimony…

Our air conditioner would not let cold air out. For some reason we fixed it twice and it did not fix permanently, it would work maybe for a week or two and then stopped working. We did not have the budget to buy another air conditioner at the time so we have been sleeping with a fan for the past 6 months.

A month or so ago we started to pray as a family every night. Each and every person gets to say their petitions and we also read a little scripture. We also have a little notebook to place names and pray for the sick people we may know about. Three days ago I get the idea of praying for my kids with one specific purpose, that God uses them in a mighty way to bless other souls around them.

(This grows out of being thankful to have them in my life, miracles that God lend to us, to guide here on earth. Science said it was impossible, God said I am possible. Anything with God is possible. My heart is set in having my family and every person see what I see and feel what I feel serving Jesus Christ.)

My 5 year old with all authority told me last night: “Mom turn on your room A/C.” (I found this kind of strange because she knows it does not work.) I did decide to listen since she persisted. She asks me: “Mom were is the remote, were do I turn it on.” I explain to my husband what she just said and he just leaves what he was doing and goes outside and turns on the A/C electric switch. He does not question he just commits and acts on his daughter’s faith.

Our daughters get on the bed and the little one standing, just starts speaking to God saying: “Lord, thank You that the A/C is working. Lord, may this A/C get cold so my parents get to sleep as confortable as I do.”

We acted on her faith, not saying anything just following her lead by closing the windows, together in faith. Our little one was still on top of our bed hands up high going in circles praising the Lord for what He had already done. Our eldest just staring at her in awe of what she was doing and how we were all just moving and respecting her faith.

I had never seen her so sure of a prayer request. If we had a mind set on the things of this world, we could have never accepted what she was saying. We had already been praying for a new reality, open eyes, and ears to things above and not bellow, we were already willing to accept God’s reality not our worldly reality. This could not be reason or placed into logic.

I am so thankful of my daughters for their compassion toward us. I am so thankful for my youngest sincere humble heart, submitted to God for the love she has for her parents. Thanks to her yesterday we slept in A/C that was colder than ever before.

One of my favorite Pastors recently stated “that the person who seeks true friendship with God, lives daily testimonies at His feet.”

We should all pray without ceasing like Paul explains so we can see eyes and ears wide open to what God has in store for all those who choose to love Him.

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

Why I chose darkness?

Early in my life, I remember seeing cartoons of healing miracles performed by the Virgin Mary of Fatima through some little kids. I remember telling my mother that I wanted to heal people like those kids. She said to me with such conviction that since I was a good girl I could probably get to see the Virgin Mary at some point and I could get that ability from her. After this information I could only imagine that lady creeping up in my room at night, so I would always go and sneak in my mother’s bedroom because I was sure I was seeing things at night move in my room. This went on most of my formative toddler and middle school years. Being brought up as a “Catholic” I would only visit the church if I stayed for the weekend with my grandparents or on especial events like baptisms or weddings. I do remember my mother praying The Lord’s Prayer with me every night, this was the limited information I got on a relationship with God.

To summarize my “bible study” when I was just a child was:

-Church was visited once in blue moon or especial events. Oh, and when you visit ask God for one thing you really want. (“Like a genie in a bottle.”)

-Virgin Mary can visit kids and she has all the power to heal so she is the one to give it to us kids to perform.

-Pray the Lord’s prayer every night.

-Once a month you would get light a candle to a saint for a prayer request. My mom’s favorite was saint Jude. She would purchase this candle at the supermarket. I did get to do this a few times when I had my own apartment.

Growing up my grandmother loved to talk about the paranormal activity she experienced in her house due to living right in front of a cemetery when she was growing up. Her mother was a spiritist and she dabbled in the occult. So, the paranormal activity had nothing to do with the cemetery, I am sure of this. This type of conversations just freaked me out even more. I was so afraid of the dark when I was just a small child. I remember having horrible night terrors. The idea of crossing the hallway to my mother’s bedroom got to be torture for years.

62a13e6a0ebefb8a0fd1be58a952cf60.jpg

Fast forwarding a few years I went through a couple of bad experiences that no little girl should ever go through and this really change my love for God. Not that I had established a real love for someone I barely knew existed. I knew more about the virgin Mary and paranormal activity than I knew about Jesus. So sad, I know! When these incidents happened, and my family did not listen due to the family name and their status I was really hurt. I understood that God was never with me and I thought by then, that there could not be a God. After all the emotional abandonment and the disregard for my trauma I grew bitter and hated the world more and more by the minute. I decided to turn my world into a party non-stop, so I could anesthetize my pain. I had this really “cool and awesome life” or so that is how I showed all my friends and family but deep down inside hate, depression, sadness, and loneliness were eating me up inside. I needed to take control of my life, so I decided to dabble in the occult. I started with a “Ouija Board” and ended up in “white witchcraft” let me tell you there is no white or black, witchcraft is witchcraft. I decided I would start reading tarot cards and got really good at it.

1-John_1_9

At a very young age I decided to have a very deep relationship with this person. As soon as this relationship turned sour I wanted to control it. I did a spell to make us closer. That night after the moonlight, the candles, the time, and the words he calls me and tells me that his car and all that was in it was stolen. I remember crying like a baby. His car was new, and everything cool he owned for entertainment was in it, including a work laptop. I got him into so much trouble. I felt so guilty that I told him what I had done. This just created the unhealthiest relationship ever lived. We were always together because he depended on me to drive him everywhere. He was so upset and unhappy it was depressing to see. This just led us to crash and burn years later after much emotional abuse. To this day I can say that all the years subjected to witchcraft my life was unstable, depressive, and so empty. I could be surrounded by many friends and having “fun” and still feel a void that friends, alcohol, or parties could never fill.

Years went by and changes came, I got tired of doing the same thing over and over again. God was ready to work with my heart by then. I remember starting to sing a song that was in my mind for a long time when I was alone. I had heard this song at my high school graduation years before I started singing it and it had stuck in my head. The high school graduation was a Catholic mass, so, this was a song of praise to the Lord. I did not know about praise or God being moved in praise. My mind would always go back to that song. So, I kept singing it when alone. Now I see that God was doing it all for me. I did not even know how powerful His praise could be. So, several years in this bad situation I would open my catholic school bible and ask God to lead me to what he wanted to tell me. If he was real? This was 3 different times in 3 different years. The page that would always come up in this old bible, never used, and never marked was:

DEUTERONOMY+18-10-14Deuteronomy 18: 10-14:   “No one among you is to sacrifice his son or daughter in the fire, practice divination, tell fortunes, interpret omens, practice sorcery, cast spells, consult a medium or a spiritist, or inquire of the dead. Everyone who does these acts is detestable to the Lord, and the Lord your God is driving out the nations before you because of these detestable acts. You must be blameless before the Lord your God. Though these nations you are about to drive out listen to fortune-tellers and diviners, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do this.”

The third year, the third time, trust me, I freaked out and I definitely got the message. That same day I decided to trashed thousands of dollars in witchcraft books and collectable tarot cards. I never looked back. I did not start reading the bible right away, but I still was starting to see changes in my life. God, year after year, was working on the life he wanted me to live, not the one I was living. One night after 3 years without a special person in my life, I prayed to God. I decided to scream because I was so angry at him. I told him that deep down inside I had always been a good girl and that it was time, I deserved that good guy that would never let me down. That same night because of a really bad experience with a girl at church my “especial guy” decided to ask God in prayer for a girl that had nothing to do with church. That night I met my husband. We have been together ever since. His family was the one to open the door to know the love of God. I thank God every day for his way to love us even when we don’t know the power of his love in our lives. He keeps seeking us. It’s our wrong attitude and decisions that keep pushing Him away. Choose to put him first by talking to God like if he was sitting next to you. Apologize for whatever wrong you may have done and invite Him into your life. Oh the beauty you can experience at his feet will surpass anything lived up to now.

I forgive you. I prefer healing.

I remember all the things I WANTED TO SAY.  The incredible part of all the things I have written before this one, does not represent the woman God has transformed me into, day in and day out for years. I know the weight of all the words we choose to place in a journal, diary, a piece paper, or even type into a computer screen. I remember burning many journals because I was ashamed when writing about my way of life and my thoughts. For many years I lived in a very dark place. My family did see my wrong actions but never tried to figure out the root of the problem. All were pretty quick to correct me, but never taking any time to really know me. If you get to know your child they will open up to talk to you about anything.  I spend most of my adolescence with suicidal thoughts. No one knew! Not even my best of friends. My closest relatives only smelled the alcohol and knew that I was hanging out at all hours of the night without really having the age for all of it. No one intervene. No one asked how they could help. They were all quick to tell me how wrong and bad my actions were. No one took the time to know me, no one really knew how to reach me and analize what was going on in my mind. The power struggle to make me behave without knowing me was always in action. Please if you are young and going through suicidal thoughts, please talk about it! Please do not hide your feelings! It is always necessary to make your feelings known. If your parents are not willing to be there, talk to God and ask him to guide you to a youth group in a church were you can get friends that will support you and the counseling you may need with a pastor. I did not believe in any of this. Now I can say that it does work.

I am sure that with the power of love everything would have gone in a very different direction. I can see that love has the ability to cancel all wrongs. The society we live is all about pride. That is the household I lived in. Pride was the most important element present. My mother never could accept her hurts and I could never accept to her how much I needed help. We were tip towing around each other and in silence, just hurting one another.

My house hold for a long time did not know God’s true love and wisdom. I am now sure that when we submit to the Spirit of Truth we will be able to know how to deal with any situation that arises. God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are to liberate anyone who seeks with a sincere heart. It says as a promise in Psalm 91:14-16 “I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

Deuteronomy 5:16

Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that your days may be long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Ephesians 6:2-3

Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with a promise, so that it may go well with you and that you may have a long life in the land.

I know its hard to honor parents when they are not honoring you. Please do not belittle your faith and your love for God by acting in anger towards them. Parents sometimes are so caught up in their own life mistakes and bad decisions they cannot consider your needs. Give them mercy and pray for them non stop. God will bless you in ways you have never been blessed before.

I will live to love no matter the “humiliation” that is basically what Jesus did for all while he was alive and worst of all when he was being humiliated as the scum of the earth. We all know he was clean of sin and the true royalty of heaven on earth. What did we do? What are we capable of? Why can’t we just choose love? The absence of love got him on that cross!

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. – 1 John 4:7-8
