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.

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.

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. 🔥

Butterfly transformation

I never realized how much creation shows us the way life is. As a butterfly our life is an eternal transformation. Jesus is working on us at all times in life. Of course, this transformation can only happen when we let Him come into our heart. How? You may ask. Just say:

“Jesus come into my heart and forgive all of my sins, turn my heart into your house of prayer.” In Jesus name. Amen. (This is just an example, you can do it however this prayer comes to you.) The most important part about this prayer is that your words have to align with your heart’s desire to become a child of God. 😉

A while back 11 years to be exact I realized how dead I was walking my path in this life. I was gifted with a near death experience that started to open my eyes to what truly matters. Through my cancer I started not caring about having a house, a car, a career, a title, new phone, tv, movies, games, etc.

All I realized I cared about was to let people know how brief life is.

All I started caring about was what God cared about.

Things I started to pray for and help whenever I had access to help:

The mom without a house.

The kid without a meal at school.

The friend that needed help with her kids while she took a breather.

The marriage of a loved one.

My friend’s career.

My friend’s sick loved ones.

My neighbor’s dog.

The abandoned cats around the neighborhood.

This started taking me to a path I never thought to find. I started to pray intentionally for everything and everyone. No one sent me to do it, I just saw others needs and I could not helped myself but help. The moment I realize how fulfilling it is to serve and meet the needs of others, I just never wanted to stop.

I am so thankful for the cancer that changed my life. I am so thankful that every affliction or process is a higher weight of Glory in Jesus. I can see that every time I go through some type of trial the Lord is waiting on the other side with a new opportunity for encouragement and a stronger faith. 🌈

Jesus loves you and so do I…

Today’s prayer…

May the Lord allow you to see all the trials he has permitted in your life and how He used them all for your good. Thank you Jesus for all good and bad that edify us in our faith walk. In Jesus name. Amen. ☀️

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!

Walking looking at you

In this season I am getting the point of a verse that I say to many when they decide to walk with Jesus. This is the verse Holy Spirit moves me to use to bring them to the truth and cancel the lies of this world when they have been following other beliefs or idols. Jesus (using me) has been able to set people free from demonic possession with this verse and a hug.

I still remember that day and that a woman thirsty for whatever I had with me. She came to me and said: “I need what you have.” She hugged me so strongly that I could feel her squeezing my ribs. She even smelled me on my neck in a weird “vampire like” kind of way. That is when I knew I had to set her free from whatever was in her. Demons know Christ scent. Oh, and yes you guessed it, demons’ reek and this woman had their smell on her. I knew what was hugging me the moment I saw her eyes. The most amazing thing happened: Perfect love casted out all fear from me. (1 John 4:18) So I was able to tell the lady: “Jesus is the only one true way to God and that she was free in Jesus name.” I hugged her back and told her also: “Jesus loves you exactly where you are, be free and know that Jesus is God.” She was set free at that moment and started dancing and praising Jesus in a religious area where you were supposed to be very quiet. The courage that I felt at that moment came from the love I had of Jesus and my husband having my back.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.(John 14:6)

Jesus is the son of God sent to redeem us and set us free from a life of condemnation.

How do we keep our freedom in Him daily?

Jesus as The Way… When we see Jesus as the way. What do you do when you walk? You see where you step. As you walk with Jesus, you keep your mind and your heart set on Jesus at all times. Everything you walk out to do you dedicate it to Jesus and you will see how much easier it becomes. You will see how much promptings he will give you to bless others along the way.

Jesus as The Truth… When we see Jesus as the truth. Jesus himself explains how the Word (Holy Bible) is truth. At some point Jesus points out to the Father in heaven that may He sanctify us by the Word (Holy Bible). So, when we spend time in the Holy Bible we are being washed and sanctified by the truth that is setting us free from the lies of this world. This is the reason in the word we are constantly guided to delight in the Word (the law) of the Lord day and night. Jesus told us that the truth in His Word will set us free. (John 8: 32) I believe what the Word of God can do because I have been set free myself from depression, panic attacks, witchcraft, seeing demons my whole life (until I met Jesus), and so much more.

Jesus as The Life… When we see Jesus as the life. Jesus is eternal life. When we go to (John 17: 3) it explains that to know Abba and Jesus Christ closely is eternal life. We understand that as soon as we are in His presence all we want is Him and that is why we get to a point where death loses its sting. When you love Jesus above all else, death loses its power to make you fearful of it. To know in His presence how loved you are by your Father in heaven makes you understand that on earth or in heaven as long as you get his love you are set.

All about my Father’s business

Jesus at 12 years old new His purpose…

“And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?”

Luke 2:49 KJV

We are all called to the same purpose yet with different gifts and talents to save others on this fallen earth.

Lets refocus on what the Lord has called us to…

We are called to walk like Jesus…

We are called to care for the needy, the orphan, and the widow…

This is our Father’s business.

Our hearts should be concentrating on Jesus’ perfect love for us to be able to overflow for others that same love.

Our lives should show that we walk His mercy and His grace for others to see and know that God is a constant rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Jesus intentionally calls us to put His Kingdom first and that everything we would ever need He will cover it! (Matthew 6:33) This is why Jesus put the needs of others above His own. In our “selfie nation” I know this is a challenge. Yet it is what Jesus calling was…

“Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Philippians‬ ‭2:4-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

When Jesus started His ministry He said the most important message of all… “Repent for The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2) Original written word in the Bible “repent” meant to change your mind.

Renew your mind later the Apostle Paul explains we should keep our eyes, ears, and mouths on things above and not bellow. (Kingdom thoughts that Philippians 4 explains: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 KJV) All this according to the fleshly desires of this world is a bit difficult to keep up with. I know I worked on what would came out of my mouth for 3 years and I am still a work in progress. To die to the ways of this world can only be completely relying on our Father in Heaven in relationship guiding our every step. I no longer curse yet I am not perfect and if I do I repent and turn my mind and actions towards my Father’s ways.

Jesus was walking the Kingdom of heaven here on earth. (John 3:13 KJV) He explains this to Nicodemus and even lets him know that he would not understand heavenly things. All this is accessible through the confession of our sins and being born again by baptism of water and Holy Spirit. When we decide to love God with all of our heart, all of our mind, all of our strength, and all of our soul. He reveals everything we need to know about His ways. When we decide not to question His goodness. When we decide to repent immediately if we think against His ways. This is when we can have a deeper maturing relationship with our Father in heaven. This is when we can see that His kingdom can come close. Ask for it as Jesus did constantly in prayer, Our Father’s prayer has a purpose, it paves the way… Jesus paved the way of how to access the kingdom to be a yielded servant. “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10 KJV

Through our inheritance “Holy Spirit” we have been given a kingdom to walk out on this earth as servants of the most High God. You can read about it in Daniel…

“And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.” Daniel 7:27 KJV

Please pray with me today…

🙏May you walk your purpose now dedicating everything you do to the King of Kings / Lord of Lords to live everlasting life from this side of eternity as a servant of the most High God. In this everlasting life we abide in His Secret Place where we are safe and protected from all the plagues of this world like the Israelites in Goshen, and also like the Israelites in the desert for 40 years.

May you be blessed and be encouraged! 🙌
