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.

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. 🔥

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.🌈

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)

 

The real war is in your mind

You can put faith in God, or you can put faith in the “dark side.” You decide daily who you walk for. When we pray it’s important to think ahead of time what we are praying for. Make sure what you are asking for is from a love perspective. Why? We are all God’s creation and He loves us all and He is always loving and seeking His lost sheep. This may be a shocker to some but this is truth. When God was crucified on the cross He was also crucified for the pedophile, the prostitute, and the criminal. At the moment of the crucifixion, the criminal next to Him noticed the injustice of what Jesus went through without deserving it, He was moved to defend Him. Jesus moved the heart of a criminal on the cross, by believing in Him and because His heart had mercy for our savior, Jesus told Him that they would be together in paradise when all their process was over. Jesus is just waiting for us to believe in Him. Jesus is waiting for us to understand His goodness, His love, His sacrifice, and His plan for our present and our future. It’s important to understand the sin crucified in His flesh.

warrior woman“A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance,more than you expectlife in its fullness until you overflow!” (John 10:10 TPT)

Thank you, Jesus for the truth of your word. God you are teaching us the truth that we need to understand to live in freedom. The truth is to live for others (overflow) and not for ourselves. We have to live in the fullness of God, understanding who God is and what He came here to do. “And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” John 1:16

I pray this prayer in Ephesians 3: 14-19 expressed by the apostle Paul over our lives now… “For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

251231_448611605191559_1990647183_nTo realize the truth of your potential is freedom from the lies of this world. The devil wants you to believe He has power over the God of the universe influencing your life, that is His calling. His deception goes way beyond what we could imagine. “…He is a master of deception and the father of lies!” (John 8:44 TPT) The devil is under the dominion of God. Whatever happens good or bad God permits. To live a long life and have salvation (not saying free of difficulty) we have to say every day to God that we trust Him, this takes you to His secret place (peace that surpasses all understanding awaits you there) and he will take away your fear, anxiety, depression, insecurity, and all illnesses. All these promises are in Psalm 91. Again to receive the promises of God we have to meditate on His words in the Holy Bible, written by men that love and believe in the Lord.

Satan wanted the power of God from the beginning. Satan planted a thought in Eve’s mind that gave fruit to disobedience. Careful who you listen to. Remember good or evil travels by the power of thoughts and words. Satan was expelled from heaven, so He did not want man to live on earth having a fruitful relationship with God. Satan lost his privileges in heaven and did not want anyone to have anything he could not have. God sent the devil to earth and created us to torment the devil by creating billions of people in His own image. If you submit to God, the devil runs.  “So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will turn and run away from you.” (James 4: 7 TPT) The key is to live a life surrendered to God. We choose if we want to be living for our own wants or we choose to live a life of service to God by putting others as a priority. Daily we choose if we live for ourselves or we live to bless other people along the way. May God help you make the right choice daily. Prayer is key to knowing God. Prayer is to talk to God. Start today. 

41kfehg4kilThere is a spiritual battle that we are part of whether we wish to be part of it or not. The battle comes from the power over your mind, thoughts, and your words. The devil wants to ruin God’s creation since Eden. His calling is to ruin your life. We will not experience unhealthy fear when we submit to God. God wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him throughout our day. How can we do this? We have to build the WILL to want to read His word, speak to Him (prayer), and praise Him. God wants to be part of our daily tasks. Speak or sing to God while you cook, clean, drive, study, work, etc. These “simple acts” of obedience bring you to his secret place. The promise in Psalm 91:4 says: “He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”

Please pray with me now,

Father, Abba, thank you for your love. We thank you for your truth that sets us free. Lord please reveal more truth to our hearts and remove all the things that have damaged them in any way. Lord thank you for changing our lives to live by your word and your guidance. Lord I thank you that only by asking for wisdom you give it to us. Thank you, Lord, for the truth of your salvation. Thank you for renewing our strength and our understanding that your ways are way better than our ways even when they seem like deep water and storms. Lord we trust you in the midst of these trouble waters knowing you set us in the course you know is truth for us.

Believing = Receiving

I need to tell you a beautiful story. Now this story is not just a story, this is the adventure part of my walk with God.

Coming from being an enemy of God, like the song says His reckless love left the 99 to seek me and find me and bring me back to His kingdom purpose.

img_7663

This walk has been for the past 11 years since I accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior. I have been reading his bible since 2010. Today on October 27, 2018 I can say that I work daily on understanding His word and His promises. I have experienced His love, His peace, His joy, His goodness, His faithfulness, and today He confirm His security for me and for my future generations.

Today I went to take my well behaved and diligent children to the park. At this park we had just arrived. I was seeking God’s nature to see if I was lucky enough to find a butterfly’s cocoon for a picture. My girls were enjoying some swings in the distance and this man came up to them through a hole in the fence. I noticed this move and immediately headed to them. As soon as I got there the girls told me the man had ask them from the fencing to get him his glasses and to bring the glasses over. As soon as this man sees me walking towards him, he started telling me how he was just asking the girls if he had left his sunglasses in that area. This was not true because my kids don’t have a reason to make up what he said. So, I just said fine and did like if I was just walking to exercise and approach the car and took a picture of the license plate. At this exact same moment, a beautiful woman God had already highlighted to me when I got to the park walk up to me and another lady that notice the situation and immediately approached me and I ask her if she had seen that man walking the area before. She confirms she had not. This other lady God made walk all the way over from the other side of the park started to tell me how she is the leader of a group for fitness at the park and she knows the ones that can fix the fencing immediately and that the kids are safe because everyone in the park knows each other. So incredible how I was never afraid for my children, but I was for other children in the future. Why? I now know. I now see God’s truth over the worlds truth. I have been learning a few promises from the book of Joshua chapter 1. The most important one is that he gives you all place that your feet touches and no one can come against you because God is with us. He calls us to be courageous. This is what I am walking in a faith that believes His word over what the world wants us to believe. Paul says that we have to be transform by the renewal of our minds. He also explains in the New Testament that we should not conform to the ways of this world and that this world teaches us fear. The word says that Perfect Love cast out fear. I have been perfecting my love walk because I have been loving those who hurt me, those who persecute me, those who are poor and unwanted. God knows as long as I get an opportunity to love on someone, He calls me to I do it, I do, no questions ask. This is what happens. God’s favor was upon my family because he brought these 2 remarkable women of God. This lady the one God had highlighted from the beginning that came walking from really far away, being a doctor and having a hurt foot. God place her in my way, so I can know that another woman of God is using her time to bless each and every person that crosses her path. I told her how powerful the presence of the Lord was with her there. I explain how powerful her service was to me and my walk-in faith. Basically, told her where I came from: “Panic attacks always thinking the worst could happen to my kids.” Now I am a lion for Christ always serving putting His kingdom comes 1st (Matthew 6) and loving and trusting my kids to his powerful, loving, and graceful hands.

Please pray with me today…

God, we come boldly to the throne of your grace knowing you are with us and that you comfort us with your word and your truth revealed through your Holy Spirit. I place each and every person I love in your hands knowing Psalm 91 security, blessings, and promises are upon them. Thank you, Jesus for your freedom and the ability to have eyes to see and ears to hear in faith today and forever. Amen.
