Let’s see pass the storm…

I hear and feel your trouble thoughts.

I know it must be difficult to turn off what has been influencing your emotions.

I understand that having proper facts and knowledge seems the best route to go.

I know the percentage of people asking “what should we do”, are higher than the “I might have a clue”.

I hear your moving lips and your silent ones.

I feel your struggle to go to bed every night because the “what if’s” are heavy on your soul.

I know you are trying to pray but finding the words have been hard.

I know your trying to smile through all of this, but yet have found comfort that your sad face is the common thread, everywhere you go.

I know things at home are getting tight.

I know it seems like each minute feels more like a miracle.

I know your strength is becoming weaker.

I know that we are walking under a huge cloud of mystery.

I know this is much bigger that me or you.

BUT ASIDE FROM ALL THIS I KNOW OUR GOD IS WITH US!

I know He promised that he will never abandon us.

He warned us that WE WILL PASS THROUGH AFFLICTIONS, but we must take heart.

He promised that ALL THINGS WILL WORK TOGETHER FOR OUR GOOD, even the parts we don’t understand.

I know He is our JEHOVAH RAPHA, OUR HEALER!

I know He is our JEHOVAH JIREH, OUR PROVIDER!

I know He is our JEHOVAH NISSI, OUR BANNER!

I know He is our EL SHADDAI, OUR GOD ALMIGHTY!

I know He is our ELOHIM, GOD OF POWER AND MIGHT!

I know He is our EL ROI, THE STRONG ONE THAT SEES!

I know He is our JEHOVAH SHAMMAH, OUR GOD IS HERE AND PRESENT.

THESE FACTS ARE THE PERMANENT ONES I KNOW, the other facts are temporary ones!

Things come and go.

Seasons are changing constantly.

News are changing constantly.

People are changing constantly.

Our hope is changing constantly.

Our strength is changing constantly.

Everything is constantly changing!

BUT MY LORD IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW!

Take courage and hold on, don’t you dare let go now!

OUR GOD IS A WAY MAKER!

HE’S ABOUT TO MAKE A WAY IN ALL THE AREAS MAN COULDN’T DO!

FOR IT’S NOT THROUGH OUR MIGHT OR STRENGTH BUT BY HIS SPIRIT, SAID THE LORD!

PUT YOUR PROPER ARMOR ON!

DON’T FORGET YOUR HELMET OF SALVATION!

DON’T FORGET YOUR BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

DON’T FORGET YOUR BELT OF TRUTH!

DON’T FORGET YOUR YOUR FEET PREPARED WITH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE!

DON’T FORGET YOUR SHIELD OF FAITH!

And DON’T FORGET YOUR SWORD OF THE SPIRIT!

Switch your “ I knows and what if’s “ to true facts that are unchangeable!

LET’S FINALLY SEE PASS THIS STORM !

What has love meant to you in the past and what does it mean to you now?

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Ephesians 5:1 (The Message)

This week I began to question myself on, what love meant to me prior to this quarantine and what does it mean to me now. After some hard thinking it came down to two answers. Number one is that those that I love, I really love. How do I know this? The sense of need to see them during these social distance times. I have become accustomed to their presences. What does that have to do with love ? It helped me put into perspective that I truly enjoy having the people that I have in my life. It has helped me see that I will surely dread the day where I could no longer see them. It has help me care, love, enjoy, invest, and cherish them more deeper.

Now the second thing that popped up was, how distance I am from those I did see daily before all of this chaos. It’s horrible to admit because as a Christian you are called to be near and not far. Especially with those you saw daily. But and this is a big but …… if you can relate with me, I have some encouraging words to share. There is still time and you can fix what has been hindering you to reach out more. I know it might take some time and work. But that two things we have in this season, time and time to work with what God has called us to do!

We are born to follow in Jesus footsteps. Each one of us that are still alive and called to lean on God and his understanding. To seek wisdom from Him when we are lacking in this area. Jesus was neat to anyone who reached to him. He didn’t care what relationship they had prior. He was servicing everyone equally and that includes in relationships. I like to believe that Jesus was able to be his true self because he knew that he was called to serve while he was physically walking earth. There are many stories in the Bible where it wasn’t so easy for him to keep servicing but the only thing that came out of his mouth and into his mind was the will of his father.

What’s the point of loving those when they are easy to love ? Does that help us mature spiritually? Is there a bigger treasure to love those who seem impossible to love ? Are they impossible to love because they provoke us to grow in an area that we don’t want to face? Are they impossible to love because they remind you of all your past mistakes? Have you ever thought that maybe the demand to love your neighbor is written in the Bible because it’s very much possible to do ? If it helps, the next time you find it hard to love someone, remember that at one time in your life, you were difficult to love back ! If God could love us in every moment than we should love in every moment.

Love covers a multitude of sins!

“Who touched me?” Jesus asked.”

“Who touched me?” Jesus asked.”
How can it be that in a mist of a crowded place an act of desperation left you impacted.
Oh Lord you said my faith has healed me.
Look at my trembling self as I fall apart in your presence freely.
You see I hungered and thirst for your almighty power to flee this flood of blood.
It’s been years of me physically out pouring but…
Just a touch of the border of your mantle.
Every fragile piece of me untangled.
I fell.
I broke.
I weakened.
No longer drained.
No longer leaking.
No longer needing.
The power of your touch became my open door to healing.
Now you see Lord why I fell to your feet.
I was damaged.
I was ruined.
I was dying internally.
I ran through this crowd and secretly reached to you.
You didn’t see me but you felt power withdrew.
Immediately you had to ask who, yet you knew it was me who pursued.
A touch.
A miracle.
A move.
You said it was my faith.
I believe it was because you are my father.
For you knew me without knowing me and called me “daughter”.
I knew I had to run to where you were.
But you knew this act was the step that caused my agony to out run.

Now I walked under calmness.
Now I walk under joy.
Now I walk under a weightless self.
Now I know how true my father’s words were to me.
“Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”
Now I knew the peace I was under no longer had room for any other disease.
