I really don't know where to begin. I love God. I have so many reasons and I wish I could share every single one because truly it has shaped me into the person I am today. I love to write. I first started writing when I was 15, started with a journal and poetry then songs. As I got older I continued with letters and poetry. Then one day I just stopped.(fast forward) I joined a woman's group earlier this year and slowly I started to hear God's voice telling me to write. I can assure you that it was something I didn't feel like I wanted to do, I had way too many questions and doubts about if it was even possible and if I was gifted enough. Well, long story short here I am starting a blog. I love reading other people's blog's, sometimes I read things I don't agree with or have a million opinions about but I always read with an open mind and I always ask the Holy Spirit to be my guide when I read or write. For me, it has been a way to see the bigger picture of what God is trying to tell us. As you may have guessed my faith will have a big part in this blog if not all part, God wants to tell you something and I have made a choice to be led by the Spirit to bring forth this message. I am not here to convince anyone about who God is or scare you into a religion, simply, I am here to tell my story and to be used by God to share whatever it is he wants me to share with whoever reads this. I welcome everyone and I welcome questions. I will not engage in arguments about my faith or religion. I am who I am and I don't need to defend myself or prove anything to anyone. I come with love and respect. I hope that in this new journey I'm embarking on you as well find yourself stepping into something new and amazing!
Just a little something I wrote while in meditation of the word and prayer. What is God saying to you right now? I just want to ask that you give Jesus his time, be intentional and set aside a time for talking to the Lord, more than praying and asking for things just have a conversation with him and also listen, there’s a time to speak and a time to be silent, if we’re talking too much then we’re not listening, God’s speaking right now, shhhh, listen. Have a blessed day! ❤️🙏🏻
Meet me at Bethel, I’m well on my way, Meet me at your house where my head will lay on a rock, Meet me at Bethel and shine your face upon me, Meet me at Bethel where we will wrestle for revelation. Meet me at Bethel where a physical misalignment will bring a spiritual alignment. Won’t you meet me at Bethel where you free me from my past, Won’t you meet me at Bethel where your favor follows. Meet me at Bethel where there is permanent transformation. Meet me at Bethel and call me that which Honors you.
It’s the beginning of the year, here we are with our goals and resolutions, waiting to start or maybe some of us have started on them already. Having goals and resolutions are not bad things to have, specially if you follow through for the rest of your life, because that’s what we should do, make positive changes that are not temporary but that will transform us into better human beings for the rest of our lives. This year I am planning to do just that but as a follower of Christ I am taking it a little further and aligning my goals, resolutions and dreams with God’s will and purpose for my life! I dont know about you but I felt the power of God when I thought alignment with God’s will and purpose. We know that He already wants the best for us, we know that He has thought about our future and we know that He loves us. (Jeremiah 29:11). Some of us right now, are able to see beyond our natural eyes can see and praise God for that, then some of us are clouded and uncertain, For those who are able to see beyond, I just encourage you to share that hope, share that vision and continue to share that faith with those who’s vision is still blurry. For those who are uncertain, I encourage you to seek God’s word, seek His kingdom above anything else that’s in your life (Matthew 6:33), Walk by faith specially when you dont see anything happening, take time to sit quietly and envision all that God has promised you and what His word says about you. Let us pray.
Abba, please forgive us if we’ve pushed you away, if we have believed our fears over you, if we have seen nothing and embraced nothing, forgive us if we’ve aimlessly wandered without direction in desperation and isolation, we receive your forgiveness and we invite you right now to live in our hearts to take charge of our feelings and to command our thoughts, let us align ourselves with your favor with your freedom, your love, forgiveness, let us flow in your bountiful grace. We ask that in the times when we are weak we remember that you are strong! Let us remember in grief that your Joy is Power! We lift this year up to you with an expectant heart and faith filled heart that You are who You say You are and that You DO NOT change! Thank you for your continuos love and mercy. Thank you for your much wanted and needed presence. Thank you for what you already have planned for my life and I receive the flood of your blessings. Lord, I want to walk in Freedom and Favor not of material things but in spirit to fullfil your purpose and will for my life. In Jesus name Amen!

I’m not a fixer of people or problems, if I ever choose to put myself in a place where I can help guide someone In a better situation or to give hope to an impossible situation, it’s only because I know the one who can. I know this first hand because God has taken me out of the darkness and into the light and He has lifted me over quicksand, He has pulled me out of the depths of despair and He has given me life in the midst of death. God of Abraham, God of Isaac and Jacob, the same today, the same tomorrow and forever more, the God of Esther, Sara and David that same God who showed mercy and grace to them has shown the same for me. The God who loves unconditionally and forgives those who ask for forgiveness, the God who guides and imparts wisdom, the God who comes in and dines with you because when He knocked you opened the door, This amazing and sovereign God who directs with a father’s love and edifies you at the same time. My Father who is in heaven, He has saved me from myself and this world, He has shown me that there’s more to living and there’s more to Him. I don’t know who this is for but if you’re in a place where you see no hope, where you feel you can’t be forgiven, a place where it’s lonely or too dark to see, I urge you to call out His name, the King of Kings, Jesus. When He shows up hold on to His hand and let Him fill you with hope, peace and love.
Father, you’re the one who knows why this was written today, you’re the one who sees that person right now, reading and praying and crying and needing you. Lord I ask that you show up right now, right this moment, that one who needs strength, the one who needs compassion, that one who needs a miracle, that one who needs a way out, that one who is lonely, the one who needs a father, show up right now, I know you are. I believe you are. Thank you amazing, wonderfull Father. In Jesus name Amen.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:1-6, 8-13 NIV
Before I read my devotional today, the word love kept popping in my head, I then asked the Holy Spirit to show me and guide me in this message. Later that day I was with someone who displayed the complete opposite of what love is according to God, and as I read my devotional now and read 1 Corinthians 13, I was overwhelmed with emotions because there are so many moments in our lives where we miss the mark, we operate so easily and fluidly in negative emotions and we so boldly display them like they’re something to be proud of but when do we do that with love? It took me back to the person who has said they loved me and in their own way I guess I believe that they do but the tone, the words don’t display God’s description of love. Honestly, it makes me sad, but so clearly I see now that it’s just because we don’t intentionally practice it. So I dare you today to start walking, talking, listening, moving in love, boldly love those who mistreat you and let God’s love transform you.
Father, I come to you and I ask you to forgive me, if at any time I have stepped out of love into something that separates me from you, I ask you fill me with boldness and courage to love those who reject love and are hard to love. It is not by my strength but yours that I do all these things that make me the light of the world. For your glory always. In Jesus name Amen.
If my fire is fading, throw me on the bones If my light is dim, throw me on the bones If I am parched, throw me on the bones If I am sedated, throw me on the bones If I am weak, throw me on the bones If I am burdened, throw me on the bones If I am sick, throw me on the bones If my flesh is weak, throw me on the bones If I am lost, throw me on the bones If I am dead, throw me on the bones Throw me on the bones of Elisha and fill my cup with oil, On the bones of Elisha where life takes death, On the bones of Elisha where you’re imprint stays even after bones are dry. On the bones of Elisha where no one senses you unless they touch. On the bones of Elisha, that one day my bones become the home of your powerul being, so that even when all that stays are my bones on this earth , they still manifest your Glory. Lord, throw me on the bones of Elisha, give me a double portion and let my life and then my bones honor and glorify you forever and ever.
Sometimes we get so busy that we forget to set apart some time to refresh and reenergize, not only our physical but our spiritual too. Right now in this moment, I feel very tired, I feel like I need a break, some time apart with God. Immediately Matthew 11:29 came to mind and as I read it over and over I could feel the heaviness lift. Have you ever lifted something that was heavier than you expected and someone came running to help you carry it, that immediate sense of relief, gladness and gratitude comes as that person is heading towards you maybe even with their hands out ready to help. Well, when times get heavy and your load is too much to bare, there’s one name that you can always call on and that’s Jesus, and He will run towards you with his arms extended towards you and he will carry that weight for you. So find rest in your soul as you call on Jesus. I pray that every single person who reads this now, may a covering of peace fall on you and a breeze of calm enter your being, that you may feel Jesus at your side as He ever so lovingly offers his yoke.
Heavenly Father, hear my prayer. I’m feeling tired and weary. I come to you because I know that there is no one that can lift me up the way you do. I call on you because I know that there’s nothing you wouldn’t do for me. I feel so tired, but I know that in my weakness you are strong. My chest feels heavy, but I know that you sent your only son to carry the weight for me. I know that you make me lie down in green pastures and you lead me besides the still waters. My physical body is tired but my spirit is strong in you Lord. Abba, I trust you, not in my circumstances or what I see and hear, but I trust you and the promises you give. I surrender all that I feel to you now and receive from you the peace that surpasses all understanding. I receive your forgiveness and most of all I receive your love. Thank you for creating me, in Jesus name Amen.
Have you ever received bad news? I think we all have, it seems to be one of those things that is just part of life, something’s are just inedible. As I’ve matured in the Lord I’ve learned that it’s so important to pay attention to ourselves and how we receive not so good news, in other words how we react and how it makes us feel. We’re humans with feelings I think God understands that, so it’s not bad to feel a negative feeling, it’s how long you linger in that feeling and how you get out of it. For me, when I used to hear bad news I would just sink into the floor, whether small or big it was just something I couldn’t bare, I was raised to just let emotions fly and do whatever they wanted even to the point of letting them take over my entire being.
Now, I don’t live in that fear, the fear of the unknown, of not having control, of not having the solution, I live in a place of peace, a place where when trials arise I don’t sink into the floor, instead I arise as well, and My Creator with me. It’s so important to examine ourselves and take time to reflect on those times when our faith shrinks just a little and how to be able to make it rise above it all, the only way is through His word. Read and re-read if you must all the promises He has made and remember how faithful He is, how much He loves you and He will never forsake you. Trials will come that’s for sure, we have an enemy that never tires of inflicting pain, BUT we have an amazing God who stands before us, behinds us and all around us. Praise God. So, now take time, reflect on where you live, In panic of the uncertainty or peace in God’s will.
Father God, I come to you and just surrender all that fear that makes my mind race into thoughts that are against what you have proclaimed for me. I ask for your forgiveness if there is something that I am missing because I am too busy to get into your word. Lord I ask that you guide me and give me wisdom so that I may live in your peace when trials come. Lord I trust you, I love you and I always want to be in your will. In Jesus name Amen.
It’s been such a long weekend for me, I just wanted to share a testimony, this happened Saturday and Sunday. I was flying back home from Oregon Saturday night, so many little things happened that night that getting to the airport almost seemed like slow motion, not to mention once I arrived at the airport trying to find someone to help me to trying to get them to speak words I understood, 😆 it was a mess, finally getting through security was incredible that’s when I knew that I wasn’t going home that night. Then, when I tried to get help to getting another flight, I was scolded by the manager for being late, which I wasn’t really, but the point is he kept accusing me of something that wasn’t true, I tried explaining to him once and very rudely making a scene, rolling his eyes he wouldn’t stop saying it was my fault and not the airline, to which I felt so confused about because I had not once mentioned blamed to anyone, all I wanted was to get another flight. I was too exhausted and physically in pain to deal with this person who was not being reasonable, I immediately felt like I needed a pause, so I put my stuff down, I took a breath, and I said a quick prayer, Lord, I don’t know what’s happening, I had it all worked out and I’m not sure what to do or say to this person, please help me, I just need a flight home and some peace. The man looks at me and says, I can get you on another flight but first thing tomorrow morning no charge, just be here. Finally! Yes, I said, okay I got it. He gave my ticket I called my brother he came to pick me up, when I told my brother what happened he was more upset than I, on the way back home to my brother’s place, I thanked God and I blessed that person and I thanked him specifically for whatever it was that he had saved me from that night. The next morning, I was so exhausted from the night before and now I was two hours waiting for the plane to board, but still giving thanks to God because his plans are better. The person boarding the plane let’s me go first and as he hands me my ticket to board the plane he says, “I upgraded you to first class”, I almost cried on the plane, I was so exhausted that I couldn’t even defend myself from the airport person the night before, and so exhausted from waiting that morning, and all I could do was trust God. From then on, I could have not been helped more by the nicest people on the plane and once I arrived home. It was his love and faithfulness that took care of me in those times when I couldn’t do it myself. He knows the plans that he has for me, I trust him specially in those places where you are blindsided and winded. My obedience to let God fight for my justice, instead of me trying to interfere and find my own is what activated my faith in him to be able to step into my life and take control. Let God take control of your life for a while, trust him blindly, He won’t disappoint. Let him remind you and show you, that you are a child of the Most High God and that you most certain belong in First class.
Lord higher than you is none. There is none more faithful and loving. Please forgive me for allowing others or my surroundings tell me who I am, when your word clearly states that I am yours. Help me in those times when I can’t help myself. Give .w strength and courage when I have none. Help me to see what you see in me and help me embrace the blessing you have bestowed upon me. Lord I trust you. In Jesus name Amen.
