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.🌈

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! 🙌

Relationship and homeschooling

Relationship with Jesus is taking a road of friendship and joy. The way I see this is that when you least expected you are hanging out with Abba and don’t even notice it. I can see beyond my self sufficiency. I can see how much I need Abba now. I need Him to breath, I need Him to think, I need Him to work, I need Him to love, I need Him to laugh, and I also need Him to enjoy everyday.

My kids and I notice Him in everything around us now. We can see Him in a moving car. We can see Him in a homeless person. We can see Him in a sunset or a starry night. We are thanking Him for every opportunity we get to admire His creativity. We are understanding that beyond a friendship with Him is chaos and emptiness. We are understanding that letting go of Abba’s hand means to conform to a world that does not know how to love. Abba is love. We need His love and daily dosage of guidance to live.

I am thankful for every step He has turn in my ways through my life to make me start our homeschool process. Sometimes I just don’t know why He would ask this of me. Many times I am so thankful for the opportunity to see my kids flourish into very capable young girls. I get to teach them how to not only study but be part of a team daily to get stuff done.

I am thankful Abba has been transforming my mind for a long time now to be able to see the blessing in the chaos. I can see how at the end of the day He is the one to organize my schedule perfectly and make me feel as a Super mom. I know that I could never do this without my beautiful loving kids. They are the light of our house. They teach me joy daily. I know, I sure need it, hey! Who does not? Thank You Jesus. 💕

If we let go and let God take the reigns, life becomes fun. Even when you could never imagine yourself having the strength or the patience God is the one to do it all. I know that without Abba I am nothing. He is my patience, He is my reminder, He is my counselor, He is my helper, and so much more.

Pray with me, please…

Abba let me seek you every day with all my heart. Transform my ways to your ways.

In Jesus name, Amen.

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.
