Prayer walking with family

🦋🦅The Glory of God in nature.🦉🦋

To ask the Lord each day to open my spiritual eyes and ears, WOW TO BE ABLE TO SEE how the Kingdom of heaven gets so close… To be able to teach my husband and my beautiful miracle babies* to see what I see. This is what having Fun in faith is all about.

Let me set the scene. This was a beautiful afternoon walking in the park with my husband and my kids. My kids having fun using their bikes and scooters. I started Praising the Lord and praying all throughout our walk around the neighborhood and the park. When I got close to a corner in the park, it was sunset, God gave us this amazing show of nature. Three little birds singing and dancing right on top of our heads and in front of me. Such a beautiful scene. My girls were so exited to see such a beautiful subliminal moment in God. I tried to take a picture or video and the camera would not work. I have learned to enjoy what I am living and not try too hard to capture it with a camera, takes away the beautiful feeling of peace and love it brings. We did enjoyed the moment as a family.

My husband being the funny guy he is started to sing the Bob Marley’s song Three Little Birds. Oh and it was sooo for that moment. We laugh and enjoyed a family outing but we felt so secure under our Father’s wings. Rest is here by living in relationship 24/7. I just decided to put God first in everything I do.

Why 3 birds and not 1 or 2? God’s perfect number 3 is the number of perfection, or completion. I know in my heart and so does my husband and my girls, how the glory of God was in three little birds in the park walking with us. Such a peace and love that He and only Him can give us. When you keep walking in faith and work in your intimacy with God you can see Him in everything you do.

Imagine to walk the world knowing how secure you are under your Heavenly Father’s wings.

Read this scripture yesterday and I found this revealing passage about living in the light (living in Jesus.)

“Then after that, he said to the disciples, “Let’s go to Judea again.” “Rabbi,” the disciples told him, “just now the Jews tried to stone you, and you’re going there again?” “Aren’t there twelve hours in a day?” Jesus answered. “If anyone walks during the day, he doesn’t stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks during the night, he does stumble, because the light is not in him.””

‭‭John‬ ‭11:7-10‬ ‭CSB‬‬

This revealing passage about living in the light (living in Jesus) lets us know how secure we are loving Him above all else. Its a process to learn to love God but if you ask Him and humble before Him so He can teach you. Oh, He will!

Growing up around witchcraft and santeria I had this notion that darkness had more power in this world. Well to my knowledge and my peace God use a beautiful family full of love and the call of God to teach me how they could never experience darkness because they had always chosen to love God above all else. These incredible Christians received people and stray cats in their household to love and minister to their souls. Their LOVE was the testimony that help reveal to me this passage that lets us know that the darkness has no change against you when you are in love, head over heals, for our Father in Heaven.

“In him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.”

‭‭John‬ ‭1:4-5‬ ‭CSB‬‬

I keep seeking and keep being hungry to understand how the light is everything for every Christian. To reach this beautiful place where you know how secure you are under your Father’s wings is so liberating. I feel I can go to the middle east into battle and never be touched by a bomb or a bullet. Our Father’s calling on our lives is way bigger than anything violent festering around you.

OMG I just remember something else that happened regarding living secure and keeping your loved ones secure. Yesterday we went out to eat as a family. We had never been to this place. When we were going in we saw a lot of cops outside, they looked to be working and not there to eat. We tried to order some food but the lady did not look like she wanted to work or help us. My husband already was not feeling this place and I got sick to my stomach and knew we had to leave this place at once. So we cancelled the order and left. As soon as we were out of this area I felt better again. God has his ways of letting us know when we do not fit in or when we should leave a place. I am bless to have learned this throughout the years of learning to walk by faith and not by sight.

Please pray with me today…

God thank you for opening our spiritual eyes and ears to the reality of your Kingdom. May your Kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Thank you for teaching us how to maintain the Love for you. Thank you for teaching us to always ask for forgiveness of our sins daily. Thank you for using us as your yielded vessels to represent your Kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus name. Amen.

God loves you and so do I.

*(they are not babies, but they will always be my babies.)

Fun, yet still spiritual.

Two new challenges in my faith walk.

God is asking me to learn to have fun and to be the Carla I always was with my friends. 🤭

I think I started but really…

OMG I don’t even know where to start. Took this faith thing so serious for so many years, now I have to learn to have fun with it. 🙃 If you have any ideas were to start please comment!

Need to learn how to be more like this little miracle, God gave us. ❤️

So the next order of business to learn to rest in Him. This is something I had learned but for some reason I kind of forgot how to apply it somehow! This is when my husbands innate faith comes in handy. He gives so much knowledge and insight I can’t even understand because is so in Him because He grew up knowing He is always under the wings of the almighty. I did not grow up with this faith. As a believer we have to sometimes ask God to help with our unbeliefs. I can catch myself saying that quite a lot recently. I do not know why. I have read and experienced the most life changing testimonies, so I can’t understand why I landed on square one again regarding God’s rest. I love being His. I love learning and walking in faith. I admire my husband’s faith, and so many wonderful women of faith that are so armed and ready with an unchanging faith.

I believe that we have to wrestle to maintain the faith sometimes. I do ask myself: “even the ones that have been taught this from birth, do they stumble, but never say it?” If you know. Please let me know! 👇Commenting.

I am thankful for everything I have learned and I am so thankful for such an example of believers I have around me. No one is perfect. I have seen how much we just need to ask God to guide us to the best spiritual counsels He can give us. That is were I am right now!

I need a challenging and fulfilling spiritual counselor. One that is able to answer even the tough questions and that is even willing to call me out on my BS moments.

Prayer for you and me…

God thank you for great spiritual counselors in our lives willing to wrestle with life tough faith questions. Those that seek the gold in you even when you can only find ashes.

Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

God loves you and so do I.

Different faith

God is having His way with everything in my life. I really can’t even understand. I decided not to ask. All I know is I am here to serve.

Trust and He will wow your world. 🤩

Thank you Jesus.

May God put a new heart and a new spirit in you. 💛

God loves you and so do I.

Righteousness or Justice…

❤️I am thankful for all that prayed for my family. God really is an amazing God. He definitely guided us and instructed us in a way we could have never chosen without living in His unlimited LOVE. ❤️

Our Story, with what we learned this past December.

📖📖📖📖

According to the dictionary self righteous is define as being convinced of one’s own righteousness especially in contrast with the actions and beliefs of others : narrow-mindedly moralistic.

According to the dictionary to be moralistic is characterized by or expressive of a narrow moral attitude.

Moral is conforming to a standard of right behavior.

🔗🔗🔗🔗

When we seek a true relationship with God our moral code changes. Each and everyday you are transform to assume a way of life equal to the way Jesus lived on earth. God asks us to pray His beautiful prayer “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” God expects no less of us. He is giving us His guidelines of how to live with His love on earth as it is in heaven.

In a world where humans in our self righteousness want others to pay for any wrong doing. We seek vengeance but we call it justice. The world through the judicial system has taught us in a way that its ok to seek vengeance. Everything inside us says otherwise. Every time you go to court, it feels so cold and so unnecessary. The human heart its willing to forgive and to be just if we all choose love over our egos. True justice comes from God and his grace. God gave his only son as a sacrifice for every sin we already had done and every other sin we were about to commit. Our sins are not a surprise to God. He keeps seeking you even in your worst moments. He loves you even when you are planning vengeance. He seeks you out every moment you give Him an opportunity to show you His grace and His love. Thinking only over what is true justice. True justice is God’s justice. “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” ❤️God is love. The justice He asks of us is considered wrong or unimaginable in this day and age. He said it in His word: the world will call bad, good and the good, bad. In every way I can only say that to truly see with God’s eyes, we have to be willing to die to ourselves. 🙌

😳We all know that the judicial system most of the time takes too long to help or it just does not represent what we are trying to achieve. Then again we keep going back to it hoping for a better result🤦🏽‍♀️. Our daughter was attacked at school recently. A place you hope she will be secure when you leave her each day💔. We wanted justice! God showed us that His justice is LOVE, God decided for us that is wrong to use a system that will break families apart.👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

Today at Church feeling guilty for thinking about our justice “vengeance” because its My Baby 👼🏽getting hurt. God decided to make all the service about Joy. In my anguish he decided to impart my soul with His Joy. God knows I am not perfect and I did wanted Justice. He taught me that my child is His baby first. That my decisions go through Him. God helped me understand that even in the most difficult times when we are making wrong choices He will pursue me with all His Love so I can redirect my steps in the path He wants for our lives. My family and myself are in the perfect Hands of Jesus.

May this help others see with God’s Love!

God bless!

🙌❤️🙏📖📝

Keep dying to self

The Lord will always be the same. The human condition is the one to over think everything, even the never changing love of God.

The Holy Bible was given to us as an instruction manual for life. The only difference is that the author in this Holy book can’t wait to hug your soul. I tell you by experience. Its such a LOVE and Peace that transcends all understanding.

When we choose to follow the Word of God we can see changes we would never see by our own strength. Always doing as Paul explains renewing our mind thinking on things above and not bellow. Meditate on the wonders of heaven is what he is explaining. Because your eye determines what your soul is all about.

The world is always seeking control. We always want to control our kids, the school, our work, our home, our cars, traffic, church, friends, appointments, doctors, medical complications, I could go on without end. The reality is that God wants us to learn to:

LET GO AND LET GOD.

What a challenge for the world we live in!

I set out 8 years ago to make sure I would start testifying how God saved my life. I promised God that if He saved my life I would live for Him. So in this wonderful journey I keep seeking my Abba. I am so thankful that I can see God day by day acting through love in the lives of others using a yielded vessel like me. I am not the only one, thank the Lord! I have many more people I have met along the way that are pressing in to really know who their Father is.

Thanks to all the people that are moving to testify and live for our Father I have been able to keep seeking. I have been able to not feel completely alone. I have been ridiculed and placed in extremely uncomfortable situations. I have kept going forward. I know that Jesus was also persecuted and though as a drunk and ridiculed so many times. I know that those who keep pressing in can go through tough circumstances. All I can do is know who my father is and keep moving forward at His feet.

Its a challenge to bless others when they can’t see its not about you. Some judge your intentions and think its all about seeking to shine. I hope to shine Jesus’ light. I hope to emanate His love and His hope to the world. He gave me a new chance and an new life. I am blessed for that.

I will live to testify to all the nations about how Great is our God. ❤️

Thank You Jesus for a brand new life, full of adventure and mystery and hunger for more of You Lord.

Pray with me today:

God thank you for breathing one more day.

God I thank you for opening spiritual eyes, ears, and nose.

God I thank you for using us to bless one more soul today.

In Jesus name, Amen.

God loves you and so do I.

Victory is persevering in faith.

😇 the Lord promises us to be with us in every storm. You have to trust even if it looks like you’re sinking by lack of faith. 😳 every Christian goes through his highs and lows. We are human. 😮 even god felt thirsty and helplessness in the cross, in the garden, and in the desert.

But he triumph over the world for us to be His again. ❤️💪

Health miracles are promises… (they are all over the Bible) 📖

” Bless, my soul, to Jehovah, and do not forget any of its benefits. It is he who forgives all your wickedness, who heals all of your ailments; he who rescues from the hole your life, who crowns you in favors and mercies; he who quench your mouth so that you rejuvenate like the eagle.”

Psalm 103:2-5 KJV

To receive a miracle we have to let go of the torments of the past that consume us. Inner healing comes first, so we then can see the outer healing. It may be sins that we cannot forgive or forget. They can be memories of past trauma. That is why Jesus on many occasions did not say only: ” and he said: Rise, go; your faith has saved you.”

S. Luke 17:19 KJV

On other occasions it was necessary to heal something deep within your soul and spirit first. Example of what he said:

” what is easier, to say to the paralyzed: YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN, or say: get up, take your bed and go?”

S. Mark 2:9 KJV

Jesus gave us the ministry of reconciliation. He wanted us to go into all nations and forgive each others past, sins, and transgressions. When you forgive yourself and start loving free of your mistakes, that is when God can start living in you and acting through you.

The Faith you need to live the miracle. It’s knowing God can do it. To be convinced that it will happen without doubt. To know in your ❤️ that you got it…

” it is therefore faith the certainty of what is expected, the conviction of what is not seen.”

Hebrews 11:1 KJV

Like growing faith? By the word of God. You want to grow the faith of God in terms of healing and miracles, for he seeks in the bible all promises of healing and read them over and over again. All healing and every miracle.

” so faith is for hearing, and hearing, by the word of God.”

Romans 10:17 KJV

If you think with your ❤️, you get the word. And the word of God is what will give us freedom. We will not be captive to the suffering of this terrestrial world if we believe that in the cross, God, he defeated this world for us. The truth states that ” for whose wounds you were healed.”

” and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

S. John 8:32 KJV (the truth is also the word of God. We have to spend time in the bible 📖 to know true freedom. )

When can you perfect your faith?

Living what you already think God can do. Act and perform the work that God asks to do for others who need it. Your work is to make disciples of all nations.

Just like Jesus?

Preaching only?

Jesus healed without measure peace, love, health…

It’s all about how uncomfortable you want to live for Christ…

” don’t you see that faith acted together with his works, and that faith was perfected by works?”

Santiago 2:22 KJV

Your real 911 emergency contact…

Walk secure.

In 2010 I took my daughter to a Christian’s Book Shop and I asked her to take something she liked for her room. At the time she was about 2 years old. Out of all the beautiful and fun things she could have chosen, she chose a Psalm 91 scroll to place on a wall in her room. At this time, I was going through a cancer diagnostic, I call it “my way to faith process” and I needed all the encouragement I could get. To have my beautiful daughter decide on something so different than what the common child would consider fun or cool, I saw God’s purpose. We started to read this Psalm 91 every night because she would always ask me to read it for her. After a few weeks of reading Psalm 91 daily, I can testify to one of God’s promises in this Psalm 91 about covering us securely under his wings. At the time that this all happened I had no faith, I was starting to learn faith.

Before getting to school one day, my little one had a doctor’s visit and this made her late to school that day. When we arrived at the parking lot where she was to be dropped off. We were the only car there. This parking lot has a small entrance that is also used as the exit. It is approximately 50 feet away from where you drop off the kids. I got out of the car and a beautiful SUV parked blocking the entrance/exit of this parking lot. I was standing in front of my car when this big, very underdressed, scruffy looking man was coming towards us. I did not know if to go, and get my daughter, or if I would have the time to get back in the car and lock it. I knew this man did not have the best intentions. So, I was quite nervous, and God let me burst saying outload that I could listen but no one else could hear the 1stverse of Psalm 91: “The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.” As soon as I said these words, the man that was coming straight to us just stopped 10 to 15 feet away from us. God gave me the courage to say (still nervous) with authority “What can I do for you, Sir?” The man looked disoriented and started looking around and then a few moments later asked me: “Do you know this direction?” Everyone knows the direction he asked for. I knew he was not there for directions but still told him quickly to keep going forward that he would find the road he was looking for. Glory be to God this man turned around and left! You would ask: Why? I just know that I can live to testify that Holy Spirit used my mind and mouth to reveal a Bible verse and it protected my beautiful girl and me. My favorite verse says on John 8:32 “and the truth shall set you free.” Psalm 91 is just a little part of the word of God that has been so powerful transforming my whole family’s life.

8 years later one of our leaders taught us about Psalm 91:1 being the true 911 emergency contact for every believer. I had the opportunity to share this testimony with many people and I know it has been a very powerful resource to help change them and revitalize their lives. Don’t ever forget that to connect, you only need, Psalm 91 and say out loud verse 1, and that is how you get 911 “Believer’s emergency contact number.”

 

Please pray with me today:

Jesus we thank you for opening our spiritual eyes and ears to hear you and see that you are with us.

Lord thank you for increasing our faith and our love for one another.

Holy Spirit I thank you for revealing the word we read and make it ours.

In Jesus name. Amen.

 

God loves you and so do I.

 

 

If God is powerful.

Where is the power?

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 renewing our mind and our hearts to align with your kingdom purpose.

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.

In Jesus name. Amen.

God loves you and so do I.
