Listen to God, He is faithful!

Our homeschooling journey has been a rollercoaster ride. Why?
I stopped to listen to the suggestion of well intended people above what God was saying. I forgot to stop looking around me and start looking for what my Creator sent me to do.

Overcomers

God was calling me to homeschool since my first born was not yet in school. I was definitely NOT LISTENING because it meant a lot of work and teaching. Teaching was something I swore I would NEVER DO! I also just kept listening to the voices of men telling me how it could not be done. It was better at the time and easier to listen to them, than that still small voice telling me to Homeschool. I should have learned from that!!! Yet I kept my kids at school. It cost my kid to be brutally bullied at school and beaten by a boy that learned at home that hitting a girl is acceptable.

God and His amazing GRACE surrounded us with amazing people that would help my child channel her emotions and forgive that boy. These wonderful individuals that really spoke life and love into her helped us all through that tuff season.

I ask God to tell us what was next. God showed me how he wanted to homeschool my kids. What did I do again? After a great start with Him as my guide I started to hear the “encouragers” tell me how Abeka was too hard or would be too much or suggestions that I could be doing something more interactive. Did I learn the first time to stick and listened to God, NO!!! This only confused us more and made us doubt our own capabilities to be guided by Holy Spirit in all our academic daily work load. Yes, God needed me doing Abeka because this is how He showed me that He is the one to give us the wisdom, the order, the ability, the excellence, the encouragement, the guidance, the breakthroughs, and the structure we all need to learn as a family.

Today I see how much better it is to listen to our Father in Heaven above other voices. People are always well intended, yet God has His own ways for you and for me. His ways as always meant to edify us. Always trust God’s ways because when He walks with us He is the one to guide and encourage along the way. When God is present everything works out for the best of all that are walking according to His purpose.

In this seasons of life homeschooling is our call to build a home on Jesus firm foundation. His peace is worth every up and down moment of every day. To trust your Father in heaven in the midst of the discouragement and doubts is the key for a better life for everyone involved.

Amazing adventure to see the love in sharing.

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. 💓

Hope, faith, and love reign

The infamous covid19 was set on a back burner in our household from day one. We had our hearts and eyes full of expectancy because our newest blessing was soon to arrive into this world. We see so much of Jesus and His joy in this gift for this season. Hope and joy filled every area of our hearts leaving no room for the world’s fearmongering agenda.

🎁

I was silence in my joy in the middle of the world’s doom. I could not believe I felt guilt to express my joy in the midst of everyone speaking about the possibility of death. I could not believe how comforting the promises of Psalm 91 became in such a time as this. I was so thankful God had me learning this Psalm 91 for years before this pandemic in 2020.

What did covid19 reveal to me?

1. Revealed how comforting is to live for the King of kings daily. To know that you live in the light and darkness cannot overcome His light is such a privilege.

2. Revealed who the true worshippers are.

3. Revealed who is really living by what they preach.

4. Revealed how much pruning my own heart needed from pride.

5. Revealed how many say they love Jesus and yet do not really know Him.

6. Helped me die more and more to my self.

My prayer for you is…

May You decide to really know Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Tell him: “I give you my heart Jesus.” He is waiting to set you free from fear.

May you want to inscribe in your heart Psalm 91 to be set free from this world’s mindsets of fear over faith.

May you be filled with boldness and might to preach the true Word of God that makes Jesus king over covid and fear.

May you choose to abide in Jesus to live daily in His open heaven of peace, faith, hope, and love.

May you be encourage to thrive. Setting your mind on things above.

🌈Thank you Jesus for our rainbow. 💞

Unmerited favor = grace. Living in His abundant grace is necessary for such a time as this. I do not deserve so much goodness, yet because I choose to believe in Jesus and serve Him at all costs this blessings are possible. 🔥 So thankful for Jesus and Him paying the price for my freedom to live in His truth that sets us free. (John 8:32)

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?

Matthew 7:7 Seek and you will find…

Meditating on 37

So much truth and promises. I just had to share the pure gospel that opens our hearts to the possibility of living in daily peace, joy, love, hope, and so much more.

Meditate on Psalm 37 today, learn to lean in and understand what Holy Spirit will teach you. Ask Holy Spirit to guide your heart to His truth and His understanding. God will direct your path if you allow Him. Life in His truth is so liberating from the selfie nation concept we live in. The most famous people and the wisest of all time have always believed in something bigger than themselves to be able to be inspired and transformed into courageous heroes for man kind.

Do not be agitated by evildoers;
do not envy those who do wrong.

For they wither quickly like grass
and wilt like tender green plants.

 

Trust in the Lord and do what is good;
dwell in the land and live securely. 

Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart’s desires.

Psalm_37-4_v5_Chalk_Web_2000x

 

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act, 

making your righteousness shine like the dawn,
your justice like the noonday.

 

Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for him;
do not be agitated by one who prospers in his way,

by the person who carries out evil plans.

Refrain from anger and give up your rage;

do not be agitated—it can only bring harm.
For evildoers will be destroyed,

but those who put their hope in the Lord
will inherit the land.

 

A little while, and the wicked person will be no more;
though you look for him, he will not be there.

But the humble will inherit the land
and will enjoy abundant prosperity. 

The wicked person schemes against the righteous

and gnashes his teeth at him.

The Lord laughs at him
because he sees that his day is coming.

 

The wicked have drawn the sword and strung the bow
to bring down the poor and needy

and to slaughter those whose way is upright.
Their swords will enter their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.

 

The little that the righteous person has is better
than the abundance of many wicked people.

For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord supports the righteous.

 

The Lord watches over the blameless all their days,
and their inheritance will last forever.

They will not be disgraced in times of adversity;
they will be satisfied in days of hunger.

 

But the wicked will perish;
the Lord’s enemies, like the glory of the pastures,
will fade away—
they will fade away like smoke.

 

The wicked person borrows and does not repay,
but the righteous one is gracious and giving.

Those who are blessed by the Lord will inherit the land,
but those cursed by him will be destroyed.

 

A person’s steps are established by the Lord,
and he takes pleasure in his way.

Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed,
because the Lord supports him with his hand.

 

I have been young and now I am old,
yet I have not seen the righteous abandoned
or his children begging for bread.

He is always generous, always lending,img_7005-2
and his children are a blessing.

 

Turn away from evil, do what is good,
and settle permanently.

For the Lord loves justice
and will not abandon his faithful ones.

They are kept safe forever,
but the children of the wicked will be destroyed.

The righteous will inherit the land
and dwell in it permanently.

 

The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom;
his tongue speaks what is just.

The instruction of his God is in his heart;
his steps do not falter.

 

The wicked one lies in wait for the righteous
and intends to kill him;
the Lord will not leave him
in the power of the wicked one
or allow him to be condemned when he is judged.

 

Wait for the Lord and keep his way,
and he will exalt you to inherit the land.

You will watch when the wicked are destroyed.

I have seen a wicked, violent person
well-rooted, like a flourishing native tree.

Then I passed by and noticed he was gone;
I searched for him, but he could not be found.

 

Watch the blameless and observe the upright,img_6982
for the person of peace will have a future.

But transgressors will all be eliminated;
the future of the wicked will be destroyed.

 

The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord,
their refuge in a time of distress.

The Lord helps and delivers them;
he will deliver them from the wicked and will save them
because they take refuge in him.

 

Please pray with me today,

Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me today, please never stop building me up on the Truth that is Jesus. Please give us eyes to see and hearts tuned to hear your truth. In Jesus name. Amen.

Intimate letter to Abba

Abba I am here writing to You to tell you how impressed we are by your masterpiece. To look at your dusk and to look at you dawn, and its majestic colors just fills our hearts with joy. The time spent in prayer, the time spent in reading your word has transformed our thinking. My family is blessed to know you and to seek you daily. Can’t wait to see the fruits in everyone’s intimate relationship with you.

Family-Silhouette_2

This season I started to notice how my heart is seeking to love you and to thank you for everything you do daily for our family and our walk of faith. Abba you picked me before the world was created. Lord you knew me from the time I was being formed in my mother’s wound. Even when my mother and my father considered terminating my life you had called me and had a wonderful plan for my life (Isaiah 49:1).

Hero-Image_Abortion-and-PP-1500x500

You say that no weapon formed against me shall prosper and even before I knew who my Father is, You covered me under your wings (Isaiah 54:17). My mother and my father had to cancel the abortion because You my Abba had better plans for your servant (Psalm 27:10). Thank you, Father that I now see what is to have a thankful heart. I feel in my inner most being to thank you every day that no matter what my parents did, I was loved by my Father in heaven way before I was conceived (Isaiah 54:8). Now at your feet meditating on your word and your truth I can see all the times you chose a better life for me. Thank you Abba for the truth revealed at your feet (Isaiah 48:17).

Las Vegas Sign April 2018_6

I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada when I was young and stupid and made many poor choices and you still covered me under your wings (Psalm 91:1). I still see all the times you called me to align my life with your purpose for my life and I just was too blind to see beyond my self-pity. Thank you for bringing my life out of the pit of depression, anxiety, loneliness, and chaos (Psalm 103:4). Nobody knew how deeply hurt I was, my heart was so numb. I can see now how hurt people keep hurting others around them without even noticing it (Proverbs 17:22). I remember the day I left the front door open to my apartment, I lived next to the gate where everyone enters and leaves the community daily. I slept with that door open all night long and my purse was next to the front door. Nothing happened! Why? You Abba Father, You covered me and kept me safe (Proverbs 18:10 CJB). I remember the day “my dream guy” asked me to get married in a drive by church in Las Vegas and you placed in my heart’s understanding “this is not the time, the place, or the guy.” Abba I can see it now, you showed up every time I needed you, even in the worst choices I made, you were there to carry me back to your side (Isaiah 43:19). Deep down inside all I wanted was real love and acceptance that this world was unable to give me. I always seemed to know that I needed to pray and I did, even in my worst situations I prayed, I knew having you in my life was necessary. All that time praying without even knowing how to speak to you, you listened and you took care of me. First of all thank you for helping me find You so I could be healed and transformed through the love of family. I found it Abba, thank you because I found the love of my life, I found the family that filled every void I carried for so long, thank you Abba. I found the people that deserve all my time and energy to build them up to understand that they are loved, not by me alone, but by You. You are the Alpha and the Omega. You are omnipresent, omniscient, the God who heals, the God who gives peace that surpasses all earthly understanding, You are the Holy One, You are the creator, You are the ultimate creative genius on earth and in the heavens.

marvelous-maker1

Lord, I want to be your servant until my last breath. I wish to ask you before I go:

Did I helped woke up the souls that you needed to be awaken so the truth of your love and your ways would disperse across the world?

Was I your living walking testimony each and every day?

Did I do what you sent me to do in this time on earth?

Did I feed enough lives?

Please pray with me today,

Thank you, Father for a new day where I take a new breath and I am able to listen to your birds sing, I can see your butterflies, I can see your dawn, I can see your beautiful skies, I can see your care, your love for me and my family. Here I am Father, a new day awaits, may I be able to listen to your still voice, your servant awaits. Amen.

In Jesus name we pray.
