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.
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. 💝
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.
People say certain things when you finish praying for them. One of the comments I have heard people telling me in church: “may He continue using you with power.” I don’t see it that way. God is the one with power and He uses all who are submitted to His will. All I can see when acting in prayer is the need and the love of helping another soul find healing and love through God’s presence. Matthew 10:8 “Freely you received, freely give.” The power comes from the love you have for God and others. Jesus explained that the basic works of his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven is activated through faith, loving God above all else and our neighbor as much as we love ourselves. This means that to see the power of God you have to die to your self-love. Living in a selfie nation this is hard to process for any individual. This is the call to action that Jesus set before us more than 2000 years ago. We can see, we can live, we can act in “the power” of God through a sincere humble heart, helping, and loving each and every person that crosses our path.
Sincerity of the call to walk in godliness…
It’s a daily sacrifice to die to yourself indulgence. We live in a world that has taught us since we were very young to believe in praise for a job well done. The world has taught us to believe that we deserve a treat or instant gratification for a job well done. When in reality God called us to serve. God asks of you and me to be servants to others as Jesus did when he walk this earth only to bless, heal, free the oppressed, love the rejected, accept the unacceptable in each and every individual He met along his path. Jesus is our perfect example of what God expects of us. The charities all across the world represent all the people that have understood that we have a short time to live on this earth and we do not take any possessions with us the day we pass away. This is the reality of our humanity. Now when you realize who our Father is. What He offers through Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. You will understand that this earthly life is nothing compared to the glory set before Him. You can live in “power” on earth as it is in heaven but it does mean to work on loving God above all else and everyone else above yourself.
Please pray with me today…
God I ask you to help change my heart to want exactly what you want for me and others.

Thank you for writing your commandments deep in my heart.
Thank you for your grace, wisdom, knowledge, and truth available throuh faith in Jesus.
Thank you for opening my spiritual eyes to see the riches of your glory on earth as it is in heaven.
