Parched At the Well☀️🌤💦💦

Isaiah 58:11

“And the LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”

Happy Tuesday Everyone, I hope the start of the week has been a blessing to all of you. I want to say thank you to all of you that have taken the time to follow, like and comment on this blog. I really appreciate it; I hope that what God’s gives me to write is able to help you out. Last night I was reading the bible and this verse caught my attention; it brought to mind the story of the Samaritan woman with Jesus at the well.

Before I go deeper into the message of today; I will tell you something that happened this past sunday that ties to what I will be speaking today. God spoke and confirmed this message through sunday’s service at church and later in that day. It was during worship time that the presence of the Holy Spirit descended;  you could feel this peace and joy at church. While we were singing the songs the Holy Spirit touched lives and God spoke through prophecy that whoever was dried spiritually would be renewed at that moment.

For a couples of weeks I have not felt the same; my life have felt like leather when it’s not preserved and  all dried up. This couple of weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster to say the least. I needed this renewing that God was giving out; and I received it and it was an amazing experience. The was the first confirmation now the second one was given by my son. He on sunday night told me that he did not want to ride the bus in the mornings that he wanted me to drop him off at school which shocked me to say when he asked me this; he pretty independent for a seven year old. What he really was asking me was for attention that he desperately needs;. I try my best to give him all the attention that I can give him but when you work and some days are more busy than others all that you want to do is rest. And the third was yesterday as I was reading in the book of John; God brought to my attention this verse.

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

On verse 58 of the book of Isaiah; God was speaking to his people about their fasting instead a fast from the Lord. I will not get into that we will leave that  be for another blog post. One phrase  that caught my attention was the word “Scorched” the meaning behind this word its to dry out or whither. When Jesus met the Samaritan woman he asked for a drink of water but it was not him that desperately needed the water but it was the woman who needed of what Jesus was giving out that was the promise of the Holy Spirit.

Many of us we are almost dry out from trials and life, and most of us are looking for something that you won’t find outside of God. Your thirst, your need for something that you are desperately looking for in the wrong places will not satisfy you. Only through Jesus Christ will you gain the fulfillment and satisfaction that you desperately are seeking. The Holy Spirit will be a spring of water inside of you that never lets you dry out.

John 7:37-38

37 On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me!38 Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”

My weeks of mourning and daily life had brought me to an almost dry out place but the Holy Spirit renewed me from the inside out. It’s worth drinking from this water.

P.S. Leave a comment down below telling me, what things do you do to not get to this state a lot of time.? I try my best to read more often my bible, pray sometimes a bit more, write on my journal or just wait it out.

Calling Me..🗣🗣🚪🚪💗💗

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:11‬

“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.”

Tonight I’m in the mood to write to you guys something that as humans and christian we fall a lot into and that is comparing ourselves to such high standards that we are never going to be able to meet by ourselves. Tonight’s as I was thinking what I wanted to post on my Instagram page I noticed that every time I see a youth that is so highly popularized and sought after in social media because their ministry is getting bigger and bigger by the second and minutes. I belittle myself and I think to myself if that were “Me” and I just wish I could be them. And no it’s not envy because I love supporting ministry that spread God’s gospel.

For me it’s the not knowing; the relentlessness that comes upon me when I see ministry upon ministry rise up and mine is still in the early stages of pregnancy. When it’s just starting to get created it has not even being formed yet but the relentlessness of wanting to do more and go bigger it’s consuming and overpowering a lot of times. God has called me on a prophetic ministry some of you might not believe it, some might and some will not understand. I believe deep in my heart I was set apart since an early age even before I was formed in my mother’s womb as God has told me various times. But as I scrutinize my heart and I look deep down to my soul; I know I’m not ready yet for the purpose he has for me.

Why do we as christians are never acceptable to God’s timing? Something that I tell my mother and a lot of my youth is to never try to  help God but I forget most of the time to apply it to myself. As a human being I am flaw but that those not take God’s love and purpose away from me. I was looking into the life of the prophet Ezekiel and Jeremiah and other servants of the Lord and I have noticed that most of them did not die in their homeland. That God called them to their ministry when they were ready and they had passed the beginning stages of their ministry. Jeremiah was one of the most fundamental prophets in the Old Testament; God used him tremendously in warning the people Israel of their idolatry and what would become of the nation of Israel if they didn’t repent and went back to the old ways with the Lord. But he lived a life of persecution and most often a life that brought heartbreak to him.

“But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.”
‭‭

My life and ministry have not gone through those stages that many servants of the Lord have gone through. My process might not be the same as theirs; however I see in many of the youth today the potential to go even higher than the prophets of the Old Testament and new one too. I wonder to myself if I’m prepared for this journey that will transcend my life into a different stratosphere. I will not be the same nor will I think or see and even speak the same as today. What really am I? Am I ready for this next step to this journey…

P.S. Don’t give up if you see that your ministry is still in the early stages; keep waiting and believing I know it’s hard but I believe its not impossible with the Lord. Thank you for reading my ramblings and for supporting this ministry online; I’m seeing God’s hand move in here like never before, I hope you are too through the posts. Leave me a comment below; do you find yourself in the same situation a lot?.

Fight Your Fear👊🏻🗣🗣🗣💕💕

 There are moments that going to bed feeling that there is no solution; that you will never get back up from the situation that you are at; you constantly feel like you are in a vortex that any happiness or any feeling of security will be taken away from you by the same despair and cloud of insecurity that surrounds you. But even in the midst of that deep hole that your life is; there is a voice that keeps calling out support for you, telling you ” Don’t despair my child that I’m with you”.

One fundamental flaw in the human race since the beginning is that we are headstrong. Since Adam and Eve we have gone through life doing what pleases us; making our own decisions that has brought consequences and is bringing consequences to our lives still. I was a rebellious teen when I was growing up and  this situation came from the desperation, loneliness, and feelings of insecurity and hopelessness that I was going through with a dose of anger towards myself and

trust-god

God. I felt as if my life had no purpose; that I was in the same routine of always. My life looked as a black canvas that never had color or dimension. Even though God spoke to me through a preaching, holy spirit or a bible verse; I always had that fear that I was not good enough, that my life would continue to be the disaster that always was. Even though I was a teen that constantly went to church there still was inside of me pieces of that insecure and rebellious child.

But the woman had taken the two men and hidden them. She said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they had come from.

When I read through the old testament and new testament I see examples of men and women of God being in the same situation. One story that has deeply touch me is Rahab the prostitute from Jericho. When I read the book of Joshua and analyze her story I see a woman in desperation because she wanted a change for herself and family. A woman because of circumstances or her decisions; was belittle and looked down and  even though she knew the fate that was to come upon them; still took in the men that Joshua sent to spy on the land of Jericho in and hid them from her King and his army. During those times the hostility and fear that was in Jericho could have brought catastrophic consequences to her and her family but she still stuck to the promise that the enemy had given her.

This woman became part of the lineage from where Jesus comes from. She showed bravery and faithfulness in the midst of adversity and even fear. Why is it then that it’s impossible for us nowadays to stick to our necks for what we believe in; just because someone might criticize, belittle and even make fun of you. We go through different emotions daily but one that is always present is the one of fear and doubt. We do not believe in ourselves and God. We might say that we believe but sometimes actions speak louder then words.

“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.””
‭‭Exodus‬ ‭14:14‬ ‭

We can fight fear through prayer, reading our bible but most importantly is having that understanding and faith in God through it all. Rahab had faith in the God of the Israelites and at the end she saw that her faith brought her blessing upon blessing. Her story should inspire us women and men also to have a deep faith in God. Trouble will come but the one with you is bigger and mightier then the problem that you might have or come face to face with.
