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.

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!

He promises and He delivers

One of my favorite verses to meditate on.

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)

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! 🙌

I was Derrailing

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.

Abba 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…
