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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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. 💝
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…
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. ☀️
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.
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)
A bee lives but a few days and visits daily a total of 5,000 flowers to pollinate them. What an impact this little faithful worker leaves. In such a short life this little bug makes it possible for many flowers, fruits, and vegetables to fulfill their purpose. The bee is not selfless in the act of pollinating all these flowers. These bees have in mind a bee hive to feed and help maintain.
The battle to keep the faith is a strong one. The idea that we need one another to fulfill the purpose God gave us on this earth should not be a shock. Bees need each other to build the amazing beehives they construct. The Kingdom of God is not just to have a nice time together but to practice righteousness, peace, and joy in Jesus Christ. Why would you need righteousness when you reach heaven? It all starts here on this side of eternity. The Lord molds our character to become more and more like His son Jesus. The day you are judge, you will be judge for your actions and your deeds. Are you heading in the right direction?
I loved a movie called Gladiator when the main actor quoted: “what we do in life, echoes in eternity.” Yes how right he is in what he is saying. For everything that we do, think, and say has a way to impact the life we live and the legacy we leave for our next generations.
My prayer for us today is…
May we choose to be as selfless and as a willing servant for all who need our encouragement or our help. May we submit to love one another as much as we love ourselves. May we learn to love who’s we are in order to love others the way they deserve. May we choose the will of our Heavenly Father above our own always. May we have an impact on souls as the bee does with such a little lifespan. In Jesus name. Amen.
He wanted us to keep speaking to our children’s children about His testimonies. This was our task at His feet. To be able to own all His awesome blessings we had to keep His statutes, commandments, and speak to our children and our children’s children about His testimonies…
40 YEARS circling the desert…
As long as people where obedient and follow him…
💥No scorpions or snakes bit them in the desert.
Jesus confirmed this does not change when you are in relationship with Him… “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19 KJV
🥖He also promised to give them Mana and quail to feed them daily and He did.
He promised all this with a clause…
Be obedient to be able to hear His voice…
“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26 KJV
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8 KJV)
Abba’s promises/blessings are are YES and AMEN… These are all available by asking, knocking, and seeking to all on this side of eternity.
🙌🥰Praise Jesus🎁 🙌 What a gift available to those that keep seeking, asking, and knocking.
Jesus Christ is the WORD, this means the WORD of God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 KJV
His promises/blessings never change…
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17 KJV
To live safe and protected in His way, truth, and life we have to meditate on His WORD day and night. (Psalm 1)
The Holy Bible has even WARNING SIGNS on why not to stop reading and believing the Word of God…
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6 KJV
😱I don’t know about you but I want my family safe and protected.🤯
God loves you and so do I…
Please, pray with me today…
Lord allow me to believe and receive the truth of my life being safe and protected in You. Allow me to find that place in You in faith, believing that at all times you are my Jehovah Ropheka whenever my body tries to believe the lies of this fallen world. I want to know that I live in obedience dining with you and in your strong tower raised high above danger (Proverbs 18:10)
“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.
I have derailed from my work in the Lord and I did not even noticed. I am not willing to write about it and that is exactly why I will write about it. I will be following where the Lord is leading me. This is a new season and it is a choice to remain transparent. Transparency in my life has been a work in progress this year. Learning every day that life is a journey and not a destination. This helps with trusting and resting in God. Sometimes we want to reach certain goals to receive the praises of men. This is so wrong in so many ways! This is the world we have been educated in. Now Abba Father does not want us to be pleasing men, for as it says in His word “if we pleased men we should not be called His servants.”
I am understanding now to work only for Abba and not for men in this season of my life. Sometimes for Abba to set us free from certain mindsets, He takes His time to do so, so that the change will be permanent. At this point I want to rush his teaching and my ability to update and implement it in my life but I understand this is not the way. This is where I am again saying to myself: “life is a journey and not a destination.” Transformation takes time and that is ok. Rushing life’s lessons can just make you miss the most important parts of the lesson. So choosing to keep my calm while I am instructed and Abba brings restoration to my way of thinking.
Abba says to not rely on our own understanding and to acknowledge Him in all our ways so that He can direct our path. This is where I find myself. Telling Abba I can’t do this without you, help me not to ever remain in disobedience. I want to do everything for the Lord and not unto man. So now I am heading back on track by only seeking God’s acceptance and not men’s praises.
Pray with me today…
Abba thank you for your Holy Spirit that is our teacher. Thank you for bringing me back on track by seeking only your acceptance and your praises.
