Hello everyone how have you guys been? I hope that you guys have had blessed days since last post. These last few days two members of my family took radical decisions that will bring big changes to their lives. One of the decisions I know it’s a huge blessing that I wouldn’t change for anything. This decision we have been praying for, we have fasted for and we have cry out for. I can’t describe the immense gratitude and joy that I have in my heart in this moment because; the Kingdom of God has received a new soldier.
“Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
What can I say?. This moment we have been waiting for 7 years. I rejoice because the Lord answered our prayers of frustration, tears, heartache and hope. I truly can’t imagine how we lived before without the decision that my older brother Denys took of repenting and accepting Jesus Christ as his savior. We used to live in fear of waiting for a phone call or a knock in our door telling us that he had been arrested or killed. Something like that happening to us would have destroyed our faith’; we were just holding on to the last thread of faith that we had. We were not seeing any change in his life and we had been praying for years for him; to be delivered from the addictions of alcohol and drugs. There were moments when we were asking the Lord for help just like Peter did when he was drowning. We were drowning in the heaviness or cross that we were carrying; praying for deliverance and salvation for him.
2 Corinthians 4:16
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day.”
What can I say, the Lord is merciful and he deserves all the honor and glory because he has the perfect timing for everything. We wanted to bring this decision in our own time; I guess we were so tired and impatient by the end of this trial that we couldn’t see that God was working not in what we can see but what he can only see. We were seeing the big Goliath( problem) instead the big God that we had in our side. We were trying to help God bring that change in Denys life; that we forgot that when God delivers at his own time; he delivers for forever. If only you guys could see the change the Lord did. He is in his first love, right in this moment he hungers for God’s presence, his word and the wisdom and understanding for his word. It’s a miraculous thing to see and experience. Those that are going through a similar trial with a family member or even yourself; don’t lose hope because the Lord has the perfect timing that he will finish what he has started in your life or of family.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.”
P.S. I will tell you in the next post about the other big decision that was made; don’t want to make this post to long. God bless and lets keep praying for those souls that need God in their lives. Let’s unite in prayer. Remember to like and share or even comment so that we can keep spreading his world. Xoxo🙏
Hey everyone I hope this week has started as a blessing to all of you, for me I will say that it has been a blessing in disguise. On Sunday afternoon; after I came back from watching Fate of the Furious( forced by brother and best friend) I never thought that I would end my afternoon in the way that it did… it all started with two things… heels and steps.
You can imagine that combination brought some really hard consequences. When I was younger I would always wish to know what it felt like to break my leg or foot or just sprained it. You guys might wonder and say to yourselves by reading this “is she a masochist or something” and my answer would be nope. I have always been a person that over analyze everything and I’m pretty curious too. I feel like I need to know everything. Anyways I never thought I would have on Sunday ( Resurrection day) I know pretty it’s cliche right.
So I had put my left foot in the first step of my stairs and my mother came out from the house; and I just lost focus. So I take that step with my left leg and my right leg is behind me and out of nowhere my right foot bends the other way popping out the bone from its place from my foot.
There was an eerie silence before my screams and cries came out from my mouth because of the pain. I have never in my life felt pain like that, I felt like something was being ripped out from my body. Feeling that, it made me think about what Jesus went through while he was being whipped, hit, punch, and every part of his body was being broken and disfigured. I can’t compare the pain I felt to his pain; but I understand and I appreciate his sacrifice and the amount of love he had for you and I. Feeling even a small of pain like Sunday’s I understand that nothing in the world can compare to that love.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
For that immense love and sacrifice that the Father and Son did for humanity it’s why we have the right to be here at this moment breathing, reading or living life. But how many times do we thank them? I know I don’t do it as much as it should be but from now on i have decided that i have to change not only for me but for them and everyone else. We are the light in midst of the darkness; always remember that you are God’s creation and that you serve a purpose in this world.
I ended up with just bruises that will disappear in a week from my ordeal by the Lord ended up with holes in his hands and feet that will forever represent our salvation, redemption and eternal life. Give your life to the Lord if you haven’t yet because there is no greater love or sacrifice that someone has done for unworthy sinners like us. God bless you all and I love you all, I hope we can continue to walk in this path that is not easy but it’s not impossible either.
P.S. Remember to tweet and like and share; let’s spread the gospel. God bless.
I planted you in the Land like a special vine of the very best stock.
Why in the world have you turned into something like a wild vine; that produces rotten, foul-smelling grapes.?
The vine in the Old Testament represents Israel and in the New Testament it is said in the book of John that Jesus Christ was described as the “True Vine”. The one that fulfilled the purpose the Father had given Israel. Back in the Old Testament Israel was chosen by God because, he something worthy in them; However because of their idolatry, ungratefulness and the pleasures of their own flesh; they rejected God’s order.
““I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.”
The word says that we are part of the body of Jesus Christ and the Lord is described as the “True Vine”; the one that gave his life for the salvation and eternal life of humanity. A vine is where grapes are made and grapes are fruits; and from that fruit you get juice. In the spiritual sense Jesus Christ is the vine and we are the branches that bear fruit. If we don’t live in the vine that is the Lord; How can we as his body bear fruits for his and the father’s glory? So my question for you and myself is;
WHAT TYPE OF BRANCH ARE YOU IN THE VINE?
Are you the type that bears fruit? Or is it crooked? Or dry and dead? How are you living your life with the Lord. Last week was Easter week for many is the memoir of the death and resurrection of our savior. Many last week were saints for the week; however are they trying to live that way from then on. God asks of us to try to be Holy; he knows we are human and that we have flesh.; that our spirit is weak but don’t forget that his son was also flesh and that he died to give you redemption and salvation through his sacrifice. There is no excuse that will satisfy him you have to try to abide in him and live like him. Separated from the wickedness that surround us; we have to give example of who we are to the world.
““I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
“By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”
John 15:5, 8
My Question still stands; What type of branch are you in the vine?
Are you a crooked vine? That in one moment you are a representation of God and the next you are lost to the world. Are you a withered and dead branch? That once you walked in God’s path; however you lost your way to the world and now you are in the world. Or are you a branch that gives fruit? That you try to walk the path that you know is hard but not impossible to walk. God wants you to be a branch that is in the vine( in his body) to give fruit so that other may come and eat from that fruit and be saved. It doesn’t mean that he can’t restored the other type; it just means that they need to want his help and his presence in there lives. He is coming soon and we as his body need to take his word to different races, nations; so that they can also have salvation through him.
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”
