This blog post will be different. I want to say that whoever reads this post today, tomorrow or days to come will be able to understand and empathize with a race that the only thing we were looking for was a better life for our family and children’s.
As many of you have heard through news outlets today a big decision was made by the president of this country. That affected 800,000 millions of DREAMERS and I’m one of those 800,000 people.
I was brought to this country pretty young and with no knowledge of the language, culture and even weather. My country is a country that is in the middle of Central America; it’s not big nor small. However poverty and violence has increased in the mainland for various years. As I was saying when I was brought to this country I was young; I had to learn the language of this new country that would become my home. This country is suppose to be “Christian” that helps the needy and gives freedom to the millions of people that reside in it. I was wrong, my parents were wrong and even the world is wrong. Where is the love and the Christianity in this country that blames millions of children now adults for the faults of ignorant parents no actually hopeful parents for a brighter future for their sons and daughters. Where is the Christianity where people scream, rant or yell offensive remarks to people of color, race, religion or sexual orientation.Where is the love in the million of republicans and democrats that with their words insult and degrade a whole different race just because they are different. Has nobody learned from the history that the Bible teaches. Has no one learned from World War II that was initiated because of the misconception of the nazi minded people had on the Jewish race. Or from the Israelites slavery for hundreds of years.
In this moment I’m Joseph in the land of Egypt not knowing what God has prepare for me. There are over 800,000 millions youth, adults that are in fear because of the decision that was taken today. Am I worried? To be truthful I’m not. My faith is in the God that I serve and he is the mighty God that freed Israelites from the clutches pharaoh. He is the God that gave them a whole nation. What I am is sad for this country because they are digging deeper into a whole that they won’t be able to get out. Don’t you know that many of the people that are DACA are christian youth and adults. What I want everyone to know and understand is this; we have a bigger God then your hatred for a race that has done nothing to you. We work hard for the things that we wear, use and eat. My parents have work all their lives providing for us, they have paid taxes in every single thing in this country. Why are we discriminated just because we are human beings with needs. God protects his children in their time of need and I truly believe he is doing that. What I am is sad and sickened of a humanity that discriminates just because of color, race, religion and even sexual orientation. In my heart of heart I love every single one of you. I just hope to provide the words that God has put in my heart and mind to write to you. It depends in your part to accept those words and change your way of life if you truly accept that there is a living God that loves you and wants you.
Many people in the world not just America are narrow minded. They think they know everything and they judge based on their emotions and opinions without seeing the human side of it. They are so egotistical, prideful, haters and discriminatory but still the Lord wants to work in their lives. Sometimes I wonder why hasn’t God destroyed this awful earth that at the end we are just a waste of space in the whole galaxy but then in my mind I would remember that verse where Jesus reprimands his disciples for their outrage because a village rejected the savior.
“And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”
“But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.”
For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them. ” And they went to another village.”
The only thing left to do for us to do is to pray for this type of people. I also catch myself in the act of being that type of person sometimes. And the Holy Spirit reprimands me because I won’t change a person through hate, violence and racism. But through love, kindness, meekness, joy and all the fruits of the Holy Spirit. I pray that God touches your lives and opens your eyes not to just your own needs but those who don’t have the same privilege as you. And I hope every brother and sister in Christ unites in prayer for this decision that OUR president took and God bless his life and family but most importantly that he continues to guide him and has mercy on him. There are millions of brothers and sisters in need in this country that serve the same Living God that you do. The only thing that has protected them from this troubling waters has been his mercy and mighty hand.
I want everyone to elevate from this racist and insignificant mentality that we have. That the problems of others are not our inconvenience. Do something, open your mouth, write on your blog, make a video, protest peacefully but do something. Don’t stay in the same mentality choose love instead of hate, meekness instead of being prideful. Show humanity and compassion to the one in need. We dreamers are your neighbors, lawyers, school teacher, bloggers, some are your kids best friend and are your brothers and sisters in Christ.

Hello Dear Sister.
This post is really touching. I live in West Africa and I saw the news of the decision of the US government on “Dreamers”. I didn’t know how serious it was, and the reason for the decision too. But I got to know that about 800,000 people are going to be affected.
Dear Ana, I am not sure if I can feel all you feel in this situation, but I can imagine how it feels. You deeply loved by God and there are people all over the world who love God and love you too.
Though this seems very inconveniencing, we can be sure that Heavenly Father will make it work out for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His Purpose.
Stay strong Sister and keep watch. With you in prayer.
Lots of Love to you.

Thank you brother; I actually have peace in my heart. I believe the Lord knows our tomorrows and I know that he wouldn’t have brought me to this place if he did not have a purpose for me here. I’m saddened by the actions and emotions of many people that are suppose to be our brothers and sisters in Christ; when they have this twisted view of what is it to be a son or daughter of God. Humanity was once good but now it has becomes a twisted thing with so many dark emotions that I’m so grateful that our father decided to send his son to die for us. He must have seen what this world would become and he decided to send the redeemer so that our eyes would be open. I thank you brother for your touching words and please do have us in prayer as it looks likes there is a stronger hurricane coming to our country again and this one will bring more devastation then the last one of last week. God bless and Amen 🙏🏼 💜💕
Amen Sister. I Love you much. Keep you in prayer. Stay strong. Love God more.
