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.}

Thankful.

God wrote our love story and it’s just the beginning. Ups and downs but, like every other relationship, we aren’t perfect. However, I am so grateful He brought us together. The mercy and grace over our lives has been overwhelming and humbling.

Serving the Lord with you, building a life and God willing having children of our own one day, experiencing life all together with you… Speechless!

Today I posted a photo of us that was taken 11 years ago. 13 years of friendship and a life time to go.

I love you so much and I am so proud to let the world know how deeply in love I am with you. I am so proud of the man of God that you are. I admire your patience with me, the support you give me with all my health issues (every single emergency room visit…he has rushed me there and stayed by my side), the way you love me, take care of me, protect my heart and spiritual life, no matter my past all you see is Christ in my life and who God has made me now.

(One of the emergency visits to the emergency room.)

My heart is so full and I am just so immensely grateful and thankful with God to have given us this gift of marriage. ♥️

Ladies, don’t settle for second best, settle for God’s best. No man is perfect, there is no “fairy-tail ending “ there is a reality…both of you loving God, having willingness to accept that we are sinners and we desperately need the salvation only He can give us, being able to repent of your sins, surrender your all and together run to the Lord on the good but specially in the bad.

Speak up for those who can’t.

Let’s speak up for those who have no voice; for the sex trafficked (prostitution/strip clubs), forced labor, bonded labor, involuntary domestic servitude, child soldiers around the world and all the others who are suffering in silence.

How victims get trafficked.

21.4% = unknown

4.6% = other

10.7% = sold by family

4.4% = abducted

9.6% = loverboy/lovergirl

4.3% = tricked by a friend

42.5% = false employment

Together we can educated others in this dark reality that happens around the world, there are many resources we can use to help those in captivity. To see the signs of abuse.

The one mission trip that changed my life forever was about year and half ago. There was a 14 years old girl and her cousin that shared with me what happens to them while being human trafficked. When they poured their heart out to me about the rapes and abuse they endured…. it broke my heart. God planted a seed inside my heart for sex trafficked individuals. Today I am a blessed woman to have the ability to take action through volunteering my time and spread awareness, mission trips and donating. One day I pray to go on the field and help rescue these victims. For now using the voice God has given me to bring awareness is what I will do.

Today was one of those days! I am extremely grateful for the opportunities God gives me to speak on this matter and share the resources that are out there to help and get involved.

There are so many ways to help those who have no voice. The A21 campaign is one of those. The website has so much information, like the information above. Get involved and spread the word about the sex/human traffic issue.

We all have social media now a days, use it for a positive impact.

GOD GAVE YOU A VOICE, USE IT!

(My life would not be the same without God and my amazing husband who gets as involved as I do, supports my crazy/out here ideas and actions. Above it all, he loves me.)

He calls me “Daughter.”

March 13, 2018.

Read Mark 5 and God just poured life into me in so many different ways!

Jesus freeing the man with the unclean spirit (Mark 5:13) was powerful! Then, the chapter going into the woman who had the heavy bleeding flow and her faith to just “touch” his clothing healed her from this disease. Jesus did not SHAME her instead he called her “DAUGHTER” giving her freedom to know she was not unclean saying to her “Daughter, your faith has made you well, go in peace and be healed of your disease.”(Mark 5:34) WHAT!!!! Just because her faith was that strong, she was healed and honored with Jesus calling her “DAUGHTER!”

(Note to self: she had been sick for twelve years!)

Then… The chapter gets even better when Jesus wakes up a little girl from the dead saying “she is only sleeping” saying to her “Talitha cumi” which means “Little Girl I say to you, arise.” (Mark 5:31.)

(side note: the little girl was also twelve years old.) How powerful is that???

The power of the sensitive, beautiful, and gentle words Jesus uses to describe who we are. How incredibly powerful is that? Not only that, but the miracles Jesus preformed are insanely magnificent. This is just a chapter of the book!!! Reading this gets better and better!

One thing that grabbed my attention; how amazing it was that the same day Jesus healed the woman in the crowd from the disease and the little girl was brought back from the dead, Jesus said she was only sleeping… The woman had been sick for twelve years and the little girl was twelve years of age! God has a beautiful way of showing us miracles.

The main thing that grabbed my attention to top it all off was the next; Jesus said in Mark 5:36 “Don’t be afraid, only believe.” That is exactly what God through Jesus wanted and still does want to show us, to not fear only believe.

Fear is what holds us back from giving our all to God! If we only had the faith of the woman in the crowd, the man possessed with the unclean spirit, or the relatives of the little girl who was already dead to cry out to Jesus and be healed from it all.

Tonight I want to encourage you to not let fear consume you, friend. God does not shame you, He calls you DAUGHTER. No matter what it is that you have done. Have FAITH. Repent and go to Him, ask for forgiveness and surrender!

No more fear!

How different would this world be, if only we allowed Jesus in and not fear???

My husband.

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.
