“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”
His mercy is never ending. By his mercy we are here today breathing. By his mercy we are his children. By his mercy we have salvation and eternal life. Don’t despair even though the world looks so bleak and it feels like there is no end to that hole; know that the Lord has everything in control in your life and in the world.
Even though the world is in chaos right now. His hand hovers over our lives to protect us from evil and the wickedness that is in this world. Don’t be afraid be grateful because he has the control and he is the only one that knows the future; he knows what will happen tomorrow while we are living in today.
This election was a terrible election we didn’t have good candidates. In one hand we have this woman that is with abortion and I’m not okay with that because as a christian I believe that God created us and he has given us a purpose that’s why he created us in our mothers womb. I don’t judge those women that have been victims of abuse and have aborted their babies it doesn’t mean that I’m okay with it. I respect their right it’s their bodies and it’s their problem with the Lord; they will give account just like I will when we are in front of the Lord.
Now I think the other we have a guy that’s is being accused of many things like narcissist, homophobic, racist and bunch more. As I Hispanic people will tell me “can you believe what this guy said.” I can; but am I gonna take in to account what this guys says about Hispanics first most and take it into myself believe that I am what he is saying; the answer is NO. I won’t because he is just a man that likes to open his mouth and talk nonsense and what matters to me is what my family thinks of me and what the Lord thinks of me, because he knows us inside out. Am I happy that he was elected president I don’t think so, what I am is okay with it because I trust God’s judgement and first most my faith is on him and I know that he will protect his children just like he protected the Israelites from the seven plagues in Egypt. I believe that God chose him for a reason; God has a plan and a purpose for this guy. It might be so that Israel has protection in this troubled times but my trust is in him.
“The Lord says, “Those who trust in man are under my curse. They depend on human strength. Their hearts turn away from me.”
“The person who rests in the shadow of the Most High God will be kept safe by the Mighty One. I will say about the Lord, “He is my place of safety. He is like a fort to me. He is my God. I trust in him.””
Time is Everything.
Time is measured with seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years. Time is the essence of our lives, is that constant reminder of our daily living, it reminds us when to sleep, when to wake up and etc… However we as humans rush to do everything as quickly as possible and at the end the results are sometimes things that we end up regretting. Where am I going with this you might ask yourselves; well youth and christians nowadays rush teenagers do things. For example we have youth that get involved in stuff like drugs, sex, alcohol, bullying, depression and much more by the peer pressure, friends and even family.
Do not be deceived:” Evil company corrupts good habits.”
This chapters I want you to try to memorize it; why you might ask.? Because I want you to have knowledge. If you feel like the person that you are friends with or the group that you hang out in school, work or even church are not good for you that they pressure you instead of supporting you in your choice to be a christian try to get you to do stuff that you know is not pleasing to the Lord’s eyes than run. I’m telling you this because bad counsel makes us rush things that we still are not ready for. I wish someone back then would have told me all of this stuff; I might not have that many mistakes that I regret nowadays.
Some people rush to get married at such a young age; and later on they are getting divorce for various reasons. They might not have been mature enough to handle that big of a responsibility. And it is a big responsibility at the end of that marriage there might be children involved; they are gonna be the ones that will suffer from that separations the most. Instead of waiting for God’s time and that special person that he has for you. Don’t rush in growing up there still time to enjoy your youth.
” But seek the Kingdom of God, and all of these things shall be added to you.”
Have a relationship with God; look for him first. Don’t worry that everything that you want to experiment with will be there later on, but when the Lord feels your are ready for that step. Focus on school, your ministry or even activities that your youth group might have; be patient because he rewards those who wait on him. I’m proud to be waiting for what he has in store for me; you should too. It’s not something to be ashamed, don’t let the world blind side you with the things that it has or even your emotions because this flesh is weak and you are strong in the Lord. Just ask for guidance, strength and knowledge so that you steps don’t fall because when you get to the top there will be glory waiting for you.
” And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
Hello everyone , it’s been a couples of days. Today’s blog I’m gonna talk about what is on my reading list. For me is a struggle to find good christians books idk I just feel like they are too boring sometimes and I always end up falling asleep. However I have been praying and asking the Lord on what kind of books he wants me to be focused. I’m a book worm I read fiction, historical, mystery but it’s has been pretty hard to find books nowadays that don’t have some kind of erotic feel to it. So I found this onethat I hope it will guide me to become a better spiritual person
Let me know what you are reading and if you have read any of them or recommendations of other books. God bless.
