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.

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.🌈

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…

God’s will…

Thank you Jesus that you form us in our mother’s wombs and you knew us, loved us, and called us before the foundations of the earth. 🙌The God of the impossible is our Father. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice to be daughters and coheirs. Thank you Abba for the truth of your word. Thank you for your love and mercy.

““You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible. ”” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Holy Spirit truth to our hearts…

I asked for faith in prayer many times… Jesus is the word! What we say has the power to build up or tear down our faith. Jesus came to die on that cross because He knew His blood would give us back the gift of full access to a relationship with God. God is faithful and all His promises are yes and amen. His will is written all throughout the Holy Bible…

““Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew‬ ‭7:7-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Holy Spirit truth reveal to me through my testimony…

The cure for any illness even when that person is “not cured” is an expectant heart ❤️ full of Christ’s Hope. Believing to receive. We press on believing for one another. God’s will is that all may be saved.

““Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who *believes* in him may have eternal life. For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who *believes* in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his *Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.* Anyone who *believes* in him is not condemned, but anyone who does not *believe* is already condemned, because he has not *believed* in the name of the one and only Son of God.” John‬ ‭3:14-18‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Jesus prayed this powerful prayer as an example for us… Asking for heaven on earth…

“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Through my own walk of faith knowing Abba and seeing His miracles of healing and restoration. 🙌All glory be to Jesus, Lord of Lords, King of Kings.🙌

Jesus asked the Father that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I lived it through my cancer. “I asked fervently for faith and not to have pain in my surgery, I experience no pain.” I believe this because I lived it. I also asked the Lord to heal quickly because I needed to start my new job. Open face surgery to remove my cancerous tumor. I was healed in less than 2 weeks and the recovery was supposed to take more than a month. Only God can do this for us. Asking and believing. I did not go to any Sunday school growing up. I only had the promises of healing as my light and I read them so many times during my process.

His will comes by our measure of faith. We all know that in heaven their is no division, no war, and no sickness. Jesus want us to believe that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I pray today…

Lord thank you for your Holy Spirit that always brings truth to our hearts. Thank you Jesus that we are those friends with open hearts that grab the “Paralytic” the ones that can’t believe or don’t have the strength take themselves in faith to your feet, and we all have faith for him or her through Your mercy in us acting as friends to take Him to your feet, for healing without doubting. “But let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind.” ‭‭James‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Believing without doubting…

As Jesus said: As you believe so it will be done…

“Then Jesus told the centurion, “Go. As you have believed, let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that very moment.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8:13‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Some healings take longer than others and sometimes God decides to take a life early but this should not change our measure of faith for one another… Lets keep pressing on and speaking truth and life through the word of God to our friends and family who need healing and restoration.

“Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.” James‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭CSB‬‬

“And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because he intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans‬ ‭8:27‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Our hearts will be considered when we pray for one another and when we truly believe for one another. God is love. Why did God decide not to end the life of all Israel in the desert, because Moses intercedes in prayer with a humbled heart for His nation not to perish. One man had the faith for many! Lets be that man. Jonas also intercedes in prayer for Ninive and God changed His will, God decided not to destroy the city. Lets intercede for Puerto Rico. Lets be fervent in prayer believing full restoration. God changes the hearts of people to do according to His will. To walk in love for one another the most important commandment. Always walk in LOVE.

“Here is another illustration Jesus used: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.”” Matthew‬ ‭13:31-32‬ ‭NLT‬‬

He wants us to grow as trees in faith to be the words of love, encouragement, and peace on this earth to lift each other up, know we are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. (Ephesians)
