UNDENIABLE.

April 16, 2018.

Nature is God’s undeniable masterpiece of art and music. You can sincerely hear all God’s beautiful creations if you open your heart to them.

I wouldn’t want to stand in it and experience it with anyone else BUT you.

SEARCHING.

April 7, 2018.

Often times we search for a “feeling” of fulfillment in different places all over the world, yet we never are truly fulfilled in anything and if we are… maybe only momentarily?!? But after that we go back to the same place where we started in the first place; empty place. Speaking from experience, God is faithful to answer prayers and open eyes that need to be opened.

If not careful we can confuse something or someone for the source of our “happiness” and when this someone or something is no longer there… we fall into a depression or lonely stage if this specific something didn’t work out or if the situation gets hard, because we were sustaining our happiness on the very thing that wasn’t God.

It can be a person, work, business, school, addiction, drinking problem, health, cutting yourself, etc… If today you are struggling with something similar, situation, relationship, or having troubles letting go of a stronghold (A stronghold is an access point of the enemy with which he uses to distract us from aligning with God’s plans and purpose for our lives. It can be thoughts, attitudes, habits, hobbies, hurts, knowledge, philosophies, teachings, and mindsets that oppose the knowledge of God and are contrary to Gods word.)

Remember God is a God of mighty promises. He is a healer, lover, listener, Father, Savior and source of joy. All of this can only come from Him, no one will ever replace or give you what He can. But, the enemy will try as hard as he can to make you believe otherwise.

My prayer is that you have that reminder every single day of your life, for it is the one thing God dearly wants for us to trust Him. Jesus Christ was the sacrificed for your healing.

“He himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.” {1 Peter 2:24.}

SEE THE VISION, UNDERSTAND THE MISSION.

So amazed with God!

Thankful for the doors He is opening and the opportunity to speak of the wonders He does.

To just simply be able to shine Him and freely speak of who He is, brings me to my knees in awe.

I was able to share about Jesus and God to many young women, be a positive role model and speak boldly how He changed my life and what He is doing now.

So blessed to have been able to encourage them and empower them through what the Word says they are (Psalm 139:13-18). These young women are amazing, passionate, smart, hardworking, inspirational, world changers and who have platforms to also change the world and impact in a positive way!

So proud of the young girls and can not wait to see what God will do through it all.

This past weekend God opened the doors for me to be a judge in the Miss Texas Latina 2018 pageant. We crowned the new Miss Texas Latina 2018 (Ashley Vazquez) and Miss Teen Texas Latina 2018 (Crystal Franco).

As a former title holder (Different pageant), I understand how hard working and dedicated you have to be in the world of pageantry. Also, the pressures of the outside world. Having God in my life has allowed me to see the true value of who He.

Take the light back to the places He brought me out from. For I know those places and I can relate.

2014.

“2014”

I thank God for the doors He has opened for me to be apart of the Miss Texas Latina organization. Not only to empower, encourage, uplift our young ladies and women. But, to see such a passionate and dedicated director. It was inspirational to see her vison and therefore, I understand the mission.

A responsibility I do not take lightly. ♥️

Pray for a bigger picture. There’s always a reason of why you go through what you went through. He has a plan, purpose, fulfillment, just for you.

My husband.

February 20, 2018.

My husband is amazing.

Godly, loving, encouraging, supportive, provider, masculine, honest etc… I can go on and on.

Today I am specifically thankful for his heart. My health issues limit me to do many things I was able to do before. Each time I find myself having to just lay here, here he comes loving on me, working hard to allow me to take care of myself.

Over 2 years of theraphy now and nothing seems to work. But I am not worried, because I know the Lord is sufficient. This is a time of enjoying my husband and appreciating him each and everyday until my last breath and last heart beat.

I love him so much y’all!

My heart is joyful. God always works things for those who love Him.

We only have this life once, we only get one shot at this.

Make the best out of it.

Love everyone, cherish those in your life, speak life to strangers, share the gospel, embrace those who lie about you and try to put you down, act in kindness!

If you fail don’t beat yourself up, for you are human. Don’t judge a person based on one bad day they had.

Love your wife/husband, the world doesn’t see it enough and in all you do share Jesus.

My husband has been such a blessing. We have had ups and downs. But we are stronger than ever!

Praise God!!!

God has used my wonderful husband to help me see the importance of life, the little things, fight stronger agains the enemy, to never give up and if I fall to get back up stronger, to have more control on how to react and how to love people deeper in the midst of attacks.

The importance of prayer and helping others.

I am a blessed woman to have him. I am so very deeply in love with God and my Sebastian.

The cross.

I am laying on my couch, in my living room and I am just contemplating on how good my Savior is.

If it wasn’t for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on that holy cross 2000 years ago… I would not have been found and saved. I would be drowning in an ocean of sin, not being able to breathe. Dead alive.

I am in awe. Season after season God has been faithful.

I have no other words but THANK YOU FATHER.

You guys, there is no way I would be here today if it wasn’t for His mercy over my life.

Tonight I want to invite you to encounter the same mercy and grace that I have through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The love God has for us is sufficient. All you have to do is repent of your sin and come to the feet of the cross and accept Jesus as your Lord and savior.

There is no other love greater than the love of the Father for you.

His love is more than enough. Is sufficient, yet we don’t deserve it.

I know I don’t… So overwhelming to think about, my mind is so small in comparison to who He is.

She gave me away.

One of the gifts God have me on our wedding day was my mother giving me away.

I have made so many mistakes in my life and as I get older God has shown me lessons through each of those mistakes, so now I call them lessons or opportunities to grow and mature.

Most of my life I didn’t know what I was doing with my life, I just navigated through it hoping to figure it out. I failed. Miserable.

Four years ago God found me, He took away the heart of stone and replaced it with flesh and gave me a new spirit. With that new heart so many things were exposed and God started to work in me. He didn’t shame me but He started to change me. Still is. Every single day.

Something I had always yearn for, my entire life was to have my beautiful biological mother in my life. To get to know her and be able to love her, as well as her get to know me.
For the past three years God has done something intimate and deep with our relationship. She came to the Lord tow years ago and we now have a closer relationship, we call each other and we text all the time.
It’s a bond I never dream to have. But, that’s what my Father God does.

On January 11th 2018 something out of a dream happened in my life. I got married to the love of my life, but also… my mother walked me the the isle and gave me away. Talk about emotional moments and nonstop tears. When I say “emotional” I’m not talking about that one moment emotion. No! It was years on years on years of so many mixed emotions. God mended our hearts.
To see her so excited and joyful, tears rolling down her face and hugging me none stop.
God always blessed me with women loving on me and for them I am grateful. However…I finally knew what it felt like to have that motherly love everyone always talked about. And yes, everyone was right when they said, “there is no love like your mothers love.”

As I walked up to the altar, before me I had the amazing husband God has blessed me with and next to me, there she was… the mother I always wanted and that bond I always dreamed of having with her.

I can’t express what January 11th will for ever mean to my heart. The healing that it brought, the love that was given back after years of the enemy trying to steal it away, the unity of families, the gospel being heart by many who had never heard it and the reconciliation.

This post if for you mom. I love you and I am so grateful for the wonderful woman God is shaping you to be. I am so proud of you, I am so proud of what you are allowing God to do in your life, I am proud to say you are my mother!

I love you.

Uno de los regalos que Dios me hizo el día de nuestra boda fue que mi madre me entregara.

He cometido tantos errores en mi vida y a medida que envejezco, Dios me ha enseñado lecciones a través de cada uno de esos errores, así que ahora los llamo lecciones y oportunidades para crecer y madurar.

La mayor parte de mi vida no sabía lo que estaba haciendo, simplemente navegué a través de ella con la esperanza de resolverlo. Fallé. Miserable.

Hace cuatro años, Dios me encontró, me quitó el corazón de piedra y lo reemplazó con carne y me dio un nuevo espíritu. Con ese corazón nuevo, muchas cosas quedaron expuestas y Dios comenzó a trabajar en mí. Él no me avergonzó, pero comenzó a cambiarme. Todavía lo es. Todos los días.

Algo que siempre había anhelado, toda mi vida fue tener a mi hermosa madre biológica en mi vida. Para llegar a conocerla y poder amarla, así como a ella llegar a conocerme a mi.
Durante los últimos tres años, Dios ha hecho algo íntimo y profundo con nuestra relación. Ella vino al Señor hace tres años y ahora tenemos una relación más cercana, nos llamamos y enviamos mensajes de texto.
Es un vínculo que nunca sueñe tener. Pero, eso es lo que hace mi Padre Dios.

El 11 de enero de 2018 sucedió algo de un sueño en mi vida. Me casé con el amor de mi vida, pero también … mi madre me acompañó a el altar y entregó. Hablo de momentos emocionales y lágrimas ininterrumpidas. Cuando digo “emocional” no estoy hablando de esa emoción de un momento. ¡No! Fue años tras años en años de tantas emociones mezcladas. Dios reparó nuestros corazones.
Al verla tan emocionada y alegre, las lágrimas rodando por su bello rostro y abrazándome no se detienen.
Dios siempre me bendijo con mujeres que me amaban y por ellas estoy agradecida. Sin embargo … finalmente supe lo que es tener ese amor maternal del que todos siempre hablaban. Y sí, todos tenían razón cuando dijeron: “no hay amor como el amor de tu madre”.

Mientras caminaba hacia el altar, tenía el increíble esposo con el que Dios me había bendecido y, junto a mí, allí estaba ella … la madre que siempre quise y ese vínculo que siempre soñé tener con ella.

No puedo expresar lo que el 11 de enero significará para mi corazón. La curación que trajo, el amor que se devolvió después de años de que el enemigo intento robarlo, la unidad de las familias, el evangelio al corazón de muchos que nunca lo habían escuchado y la reconciliación.

Esta publicación es para ti mamá. Te amo y estoy muy agradecido por la mujer maravillosa en la cual Dios te está moldeando para ser. Estoy orgulloso de ti, estoy orgulloso de lo que estás permitiendo que Dios haga en tu vida.

¡me enorgullece decir que eres mi madre!

Te quiero.
