Getting to the root of things…and I guess I am thinking of bitterness, unforgiveness or even hate.
I am in the garden this morning, and I have a small patch of land that has been invaded by this plant that has taken over the ground so nothing else can grow. And I just thought….
You know there are things that can take root in our spirits, and they block the blessings. They block our growth, they block our spiritual fruits, from coming forth. And I just thought of my own life.
I thought, of how I have had so many spiritual battles. So many physical fights. So many times, I have had to try and defend myself, because of some of the enemies I have had. Even friends, who have loved me, but abandoned me, and you know what this root is symbolic.
Its symbolic, to the point, where I don’t care any more, whether, or not, some have loved me or not. Or they said they were my friend, but they did not prove it. I have a sensitive soul, and I am very loving. But I realize not all do love me.
And so I release this root, and pull it up, and pray God bless those who have hurt me, who have not been true to me, who do not care about my calling, to serve God, and they show no love or support, or even those who have said they were my friend, but secretly hated me.
I release them.
I release those who were honest enough to not love me, and challenged me. I release everyone!
You see, life, is too short to have a bitter root, in my heart. And you know I have for the most part tried to be forgiving. But sometimes, it has affected me the way some have treated me. Well, I don’t care today.
And I pull that root up, and toss it in the trash where it belongs. I also though repent, and humble myself in the sight of God. Asking God to take it away from me.
So the other places of my heart can produce fruit, and I plant seeds of love, and hope, and holiness, from God.
So to each their own, I know with wisdom, we all deal with something or someone in one way or another. But why should we allow them space in our hearts, when they don’t care?
I do not want to reap hate, or discouragement from anybody any more. So there. Its gone, in the trash!
And in its place is a sense of the beauty of who God is to me, and there is no room there now for anything else.
My thought for the day…..
BUT HE ANSWERED AND SAID, EVERY PLANT, WHICH MY HEAVENLY FATHER HATH NOT PLANTED, SHALL BE ROOTED UP. MATTHEW 15:13

The promptings from God, require that sometimes you have to be extreme and take a stand. Even here to say, I am a Christian author, tells others, that I am a servant of God. So as a servant of God, I sense and see that this comes with great responsibility. Because of who God is, and His plan.
What I have learned, is God is very strategic. He has a plan for everything, and when things come together, there are miracles, there are answers, and there is evidence. And this always gives God glory.
So because I know that, I have to discipline myself sometimes to take a stand, and yes be extreme.
Growing up, I always tried to take the middle road. I tried to avoid conflict but it somehow or another found me. I tried to do things my way, and well, if any of you know me, that did not turn out too well.
I wanted to sing, and be another Diana Ross, that did not turn out well. But, yet, I knew if I wanted to sing, I had to stand in front of an audience. I did. I sang. And I was not a bad singer for the most part, though, I can laugh a little about it now, but I would sing spanish songs, and I did not know the words, I just imitated the words.
People saw through that. I saw through that, and I gave up. Maybe I could have tried at it harder but I gave up. I did not like the lifestyle. I did not like being in bars.
I did not know Christ as my Lord and savior, so I was very misguided. I always say, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train. But did I? And in this cycle of life, success, can still come around….
Yet in my writing, well thats different, I do get extreme, and I do take a stand for who I am in Christ. I strive for truth. I speak Gods truth from my King James bible. And that gives me the greatest confidence, ever.
I know I was meant to write for the Lord. Success, well according to the worlds standards, I may not have accomplished that. But there is a real wonderful sense of just knowing truth, and knowing who God is, and being able to articulate it to someone. To perhaps help them. To share knowledge, to inspire someone, to bring truth. And yes to always try and give God the glory.
So, why am I writing this? Because I have learned, and I am still learning to stretch myself. To know, sometimes I have to get out of my comfort zone. Growing up again, I was not encouraged to do that. No one took me by the hand and said, Elena you have to be bold. You have to be strong, you have to do this.
In fact, maybe you can relate. But I have found, to survive sometimes, and yes thrive, you have to reach out, and grab the ring, and hold on. You have to try…..
I get frustrated with people, who do not try to grow. Who just take, but do not give. Who sit around on the sidelines. Yes, I know God loves them, and so do I, but they don’t inspire me. I like being around people, who try. I am inspired by those who know every day is gift from God, so they try to bless God in return.
But I have noticed, those that I admire, have a boldness, a confidence, a sense to reach out and try. When I see people, are just handed something, even in their looks, but they use it for the wrong thing, I think what a waste.
Now I have had confidence issues, self-esteem issues, but deep down inside, I know who I am in Christ. And Christ tells me I can do all things through Him. Phillippians 4:13. So I take that to heart. I don’t give up. I have not reached a measure of success, in my life financially.
But I live a good life, a clean life, a healthy life, and a life of love. With my family, my husband and son. With God front and center, in all my thoughts, and decisions. And the love I have….they are gifts, but gifts I do not take for granted. Yet, I still long to do something great, to at least say I accomplished this, and for God.
So maybe my inspiring you, can be that great thing you can do. You see, just getting by, just standing on the sidelines, may make you safe, or so you think, but what if God wanted to use you for something, and you don’t want to take that stand?
You might, you could miss out, on the greatest opportunity that ever came your way. “Could have, would have, should have”…..might be the questions you asked yourself. If you are not bold, and extreme.
So you have to be prayed up. You have to just make a commitment, to be ready for that opportunity. It may just require you to be bold, and take a stand, and be extreme. Get the word of God, the King James word….because to be honest the enemy will try to stop the plan of God in your life. And you always need a defence.
Just remember this, and I guess this is the scripture that inspired me, but I don’t want to be ‘lukewarm” in life. Neither cold nor hot. And when I stand before God, I don’t want him to say I missed it. Over and over again. Something about pleasing God motivates me, and inspires me…
SO THEN BECAUSE THOU ART LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER COLD NOR HOT, I WILL SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH. Revelation 3:16.
Because you know that if you ask Him, He will use you. It may feel uncomfortable, but you will grow, and gain a strength, and a sense of who you are so much, that it will build your confidence.
So get ready, to be bold, and extreme. And then just walk into your calling, and blessings.
Much love, in Christ, Elena Ramirez

So, I am writing this, in obedience to God. I don’t have a personal reason, to acknowledge this, or to bring it up. I could show a picture of a baby here, but I think to see, and understand, we need to see a symbolic picture of parents. Parents that love. These are my dear parents. Now dead, but forever in my heart.
And most certainly, I do not want to make anybody feel bad, who has had an abortion, because the truth of the matter, is women who do have abortions, will always remember the guilt of this sin. Even if they have asked God to forgive them. I have talked to a few, and they say that is their greatest regret.
But I do write it, because I see the problem. I see, how many women, have no hope, financially, or even morally sometimes to make the right decision. But no one tells them what is truly right. So I will, maybe by you reading this, you will change your mind.
The option is there, to have an abortion. And sadly, now we see in our country, the great United States, that abortion has taken a very ugly twist, where we see baby human parts are being harvested, and sold. It is despicable, what has happened to our country. And that there is no moral sense of injustice for these innocent babies. That are killed. What has happened to people? When you see someone mourn a lion, but they do not mourn the thousands of babies killed yearly?
I know Gods heart in this. I know Him. I know how He loves each and every one of us. I know, that He has a plan, according to scripture. That He can change things. That if we loved, one another, we would see more of His presence, in our lives. I know He cares, for each one of us. But we always have our part. And this is what is missing from the equation. We have turned into a disposable society. Don’t like it? Throw it away? Dispose of it…..
Maybe I understand, because I was not exactly wanted. My mother, did not want any more children. She had three children from a previous marriage. She did not want any more children. She met my father, they married. He wanted a child. But she had taken precautions after her first marriage, and got her tubes tied. To avoid pregnancy. My father, prayed. He bowed down, mama told me, at the foot of their bed, and cried to God for me. God answered his prayer. I was conceived. Mama could have had an abortion. But she did not. She did the right thing, and for that I am grateful. But she had the fear of God, though life did not turn out exactly with happiness, for her, she wanted to please God.
When she went to her doctors and told them that she had conceived me, they could not believe it. But she knew, as I now know, as my dad did. God answers prayers. I am a miracle, and all babies are miracles.
You know sometimes, we don’t want to do something. This feels odd in a way for me to write this. I did not want to write it. Yet, I know Gods voice. And I know we have to obey Him. So I write this. Who knows who it will reach?
But obedient I tell you, if you are pregnant, don’t kill your baby. Be obedient to God. Don’t take that life away. God made it, so mothers would nurture and care for their babies. You have that instinct within you, even if you do not see it. You see, you just have to obey God in this. For his commandment says….THOU SHALT NOT KILL. Exodus 20:13. Read it yourself from a good King James bible.
There is only one who wants to see you destroy your own child, and that is the devil.
Abortion was conceived, from an evil woman, who I will not even mention her name, but she was a racist. She wanted to eliminate any other race, that was not pure, in her eyes. She proclaimed, “Let them kill their own, and in this way, they will do the job, of exterminating themselves.”
Have you ever noticed, it is motivated toward the poor, the broken to do this barbaric act? But friends we need to know God loves us all, and He is not a respecter of persons.
Friends, we need to teach our women to love each other, and tell each other there is hope. I know many feel like their is no hope. But there always is with God. One cannot become a part of the problem, which is a curse.
It breaks my heart to see so many women, not know their potential, as it does God. I myself, I have struggled, but I always turn back to God. Life is not easy. But one can survive, and not only that, but thrive.
Fathers, need to get involved, and not be a part of the problem. So you get a girl pregnant? Don’t abandon her. Don’t abandon your child. That is your flesh and blood.
Parents or future grand parents, support your child. Be there for that girl. Your daughter. Even if she makes a mistake and gets pregnant. Be there for her support and love your future grand baby. You see that is also your flesh and blood. Your lineage, could live on in that child. It is a seed from generation to generation.
The only one who has the right to take life, is God. He gives it, and he can take it. That baby is not your right to kill. Its life was meant for a purpose. As your life is.
Who knows…. as my friend Thena mentioned yesterday, how many lives have been destroyed, with the potential to find maybe the cure to cancer, discover something great, that will happen for the good of mankind.
You see, we all have gifts and callings, that we can offer, to God and the world. But yes, it is the enemies plan to destroy this plan of God. Why be a part of it, and destroy your babies life, and yes yours, by becoming a part of this sin? And it is sin.
And lastly, maybe you have read this, and I have not persuaded you so far. Or rather God has not persuaded you. Then please, for the sake of any decency you can muster up. If you truly do not want your child, if you do not want to love it, enough to raise it…..
Then please do not just throw it away. Yesterday, in the news, I read a woman, had a baby, took it, wrapped it in a blanket, and put it in a stroller in front of a building. And just left it there. The baby still had the umbilical cord wrapped up. But it could have died from the heat.
There are many places that are safe places to leave your child. A firestation, a police station, a hospital, in the church…these are places where you can take it, and there no questions are asked.
Someone does want to love your baby. There are many women, who cannot have babies, yet they want to love a child. Perhaps yours…
Please have mercy, on your child. Please have mercy on your own soul. Please trust God, to change the circumstances.
By eliminating that child, you are eliminating love. You would eliminate Love that could heal your own brokenness. Your own broken heart. There is always a way with God.
Friend, I do not know you. I don’t know what your struggle has been. But I have had my own sorrow, my own broken dreams, and I have failed in so many ways. Yet I am victorious. Yet, I am a winner. I am a survivor. I am a voice….for the Lord.
And all I know, is that no matter how bad it may look or seem, there is always a way with God. You may not even believe in God. But He believes in you, and that baby. I just recommend search for God. Pray, get a good King James bible, and this is important for holiness, and the anointing. Read it, learn who God is, let Him speak to you from that bible.
God will guide you, but you have your part. Be obedient, take care of that baby. Leave the rest to God. He will not let you down. I know. If you need prayer, write to me.
I do hope they defund this place of torture, where the plan is to kill babies. And takes away a mothers and yes a fathers parenthood. No one has that right to take a fathers child away either.
May America see the sin of this, and do that which is right in the sight of God.
Would you please be obedient to God and share this? Maybe you can share it, and a woman in trouble, contemplating this will see it and change her mind? Please save a life….
Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

The Lord showed me these scriptures today, and in obedience sharing them. God knows….
The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand. Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech. Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come. Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins. (Isaiah 32:4-11 KJV)

But let it be the hidden man of the heart in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price I Peter 3:4.
More then ever, it seems that “subliminal” messages, are the norm. But what it reveals, is what is in the heart of the messenger. The giver of the thought….
They are every where. We are inundated with messages, thoughts, inspiration, advertising, and agendas….
Our hearts, are like opened, or closed doors.
And so as a Christian, you want to keep yourself holy in the sight of God. Hard to do in this world we live in. Some things just desensitize us and so you become immune, to many things that may come your way.
Yet, you need to protect your spirit.
I have not heard a message on this, but being led by the Holy Spirit, I agree, and see the importance of this as I write.
Scripture tells us, we worship God in spirit and truth.
God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24.
So what spirits, or spirit, are you led by? For God sees this in truth.
How do we get to that place in holiness, in obedience to what Christ has done for us, as we are cleansed in our spirits, to now be a vessel, an instrument of Christ?
We have to see, we must protect our spirits. By that which we allow. By either reading, watching television, friends that we choose, and yes even in the spiritual entities of the church we attend.
For this very reason, I long for a pure and holy word, so this is why I use a King James bible. But what about the church you attend? Or the voices you listen to? Even in the counsel you ask for?
These “subliminal” messages, you receive, will shape you, will build you, or destroy you. So you need discernment. To know. This is wisdom. To know and see through the intent, and agenda, of the messenger, what is right. What is wrong.
A subliminal message, will hint at the agenda. It will not come to the point, specifically, yet you get the drift of it. You can see, either something is left out, or denied, quietly. Yet it will make you think. It will make you wonder, it will entice you, if you let it. The dictionary, tells us, that it will “influence your mind in such a way that you do not notice.”
It is as if it is a seed, and if you water it, nourish it, it will grow. This can be sin. This can be holiness. You see, it just depends what seed you allow to grow in your spirit. To determine the “fruit” of your tree.
The holy word of God, my King James bible, tells us what Christ said. And He said, do not let any man steal your crown. He said, beware of wolves in sheeps clothing. He said, beware the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy. He told us the enemy is a deceiver. He has paid the price, for our holiness, but are we so naive, like sheep, that we can be led away by a “subliminal” thought?
They are there these thoughts. That come to us.
I just saw one, on a paid commercial on television, where a couple was having a discussion, and it was over a piece of candy. But the difference was she was in bed, with the candy. And I just thought, the subliminal message to any child, would be to think its o.k. to be in bed with candy.
And where are the strong moral, messages? That teach integrity, and honor, and that which is right in the sight of God? They may be gone, in society, but if you are a Christian you have a responsibility to be a message, that does give honor to God.
That is someone, who must live life in honor of God, for what Christ did. So what subliminal message, do people see in you? I do believe we do have to ask that.
Because we already know God does see the intentions of our hearts….
Is your heart open to the messages, that can deceive? Or do you guard your heart….
And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shew thee: for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: delcare all that thou seest to the house of Israel. Ezekiel 40:4.
This message, was paid for in full, by the sacrifice of Christ.
Blessings, my friends, as our hearts ponder on this.

TWO REASONS WHY PRAYER MAY NOT BE ANSWERED
Sometimes hope will flee. You have prayed, you don’t understand….
Scripture tells us, if we have iniquity in our hearts God will not hear us. Read King James Psalms 66:18 King James only….
Sometimes, we have to see, what do we embrace, what do we accept, what do we see, as harmless, yet, may be a spiritual entity, that God does not accept. REPENTANCE IS NEEDED.
Then, there is praise, and some people forget, the past, of sins, or the forgiveness they have received. How do your express your gratitude? Do you just go on, or do you give praise, every day of your life, to God as a testimony?
See we have to see…
We overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimony. Remember scripture says, do not give place to the enemy. But do you do that, do you give place to the enemy…. by not saying anything, that ushers the praises of God, for you to have a front and center seat at the throne of God?
Hmmmmm. Something for all of us to think about? Please share this. And sign up for the blog. You may just help someone get an answer to prayer…. Then God will bless you.
And I will just add. Praises to God my father, with thanks! Even with daily repentance, as I humble myself before you Lord. For the sacrifice of Christ! Thank you Lord, for my salvation….♥
AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. REVELATION 12:11 KING JAMES ONLY.

Did you know that whisper, you hear, is the Holy Spirit, telling you to repent, when you have a guilty conscience?
Did you know there is a danger, a spiritual danger, when you have not made Christ your Lord, and savior, and you listen to your own understanding, and you do not trust or incline unto God to guide you, in that sense of conscience?
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING. PROVERBS 3:5. KING JAMES
Atheists don’t recognize it, even some Christians don’t recognize that whisper, people who are rebellious will not see it, or hear it, but if you know whose voice it is, you will consider it, and consider it as truth.
You need to repent. We all do. And I even recommend daily. Because daily, we can miss His voice, if we are not in tune to God.
You see, God instilled that voice in all of us. He each gave us a conscience. But what you do with that conscience, will either be your growth to fruit, or it will become your destruction.
And no doubt about it, you do have to make a choice. You see, God will speak to you, He wants to woo you. He wants you to know Him. He wants to love you, and have fellowship with you. He wants to be your friend. He wants to heal you. He wants to ensure you have a place with Him when you die, and leave this earth. But the choice is up to you.
That guilty conscience, is telling you, over and over again. My son, my daughter, you did wrong. You are not thinking clearly. But let me cleanse you. Let me take that sin. Let me, help you grow. Let me, give you my mind, so you can have a sense of direction. Let me give you peace. Let me comfort you. Let your mind be at ease with me. This is why I give you my King James Bible, to give you instruction.
But He God, our Lord, is a gentleman. He never, ever pushes Himself on us. But if we do not listen, that voice will depart. The Holy spirit will leave. Because God though He loves us, will not be in the midst of our sins, or our disobedience. He is Holy.
But I have to warn you, be aware to know whose voice it is. You have to know the difference between conviction and condemnation. The voice of Christ will convict you. To warn you, to guide you, to love you. But He will not condemn you.
Condemnation comes from the enemy. It will tell you there is no hope. It will tell you give up! Don’t listen to that voice, don’t fall for the defeat that their is no hope. There always is with God.
You know, God has spoken to me so many times. And I have learned to hear His voice. And I am able to distinguish between His voice, and the enemies. He says, we will know His voice, and to another we will not follow.
TO HIM THE PORTER OPENETH; AND THE SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE; AND HE CALLETH HIS OWN SHEEP BY NAME, AND LEADETH THEM OUT. AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM: FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE. AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM: FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS. JOHN 10:3-5. King James.
I recommend reading all of chapter ten of John from a King James just to get a sense of His voice.
Gods voice is patient. Gods voice is love. But Gods voice, has standards, that need to be acknowledged, in fear of Him. Because the consequences, is sin, and death.
And this is the enemies voice, it is prideful, it is lying, and it is mean spirited. It is in denial. And yes rebellion. Because the enemy, does not want you to meet your potential in Christ. It wants you to self-destruct.
Some think they are going crazy, literally, but if you heed my Fathers instruction, you will see the difference.
For with Christ it is love, and life eternally. And how much sweeter it is, even here on earth, knowing His voice, guides me. It protects me.
It warns me, at a moments notice. I may get that gut feeling, and I know, that I know that I know, when I am wrong. I know instruction. I know when I obey, it goes well. If I do not listen to that whisper, I miss it. When I am wrong when I do not obey. I see the future, for we will reap what we sow, without repentance.
I know when I insist on my own way. Or when I am only thinking about me, and not someone else. When I do not listen. And I have to repent. He tells me when I am wrong. It just does not sit well with my spirit, when I am “guilty.”
So many times, when truth is presented, if we are not in a good position, with God, we will not hear that voice. In fact, the more you rebel against that sweet sound of truth, the further, and further you will get from God. It will be like an echo, that will fade, like in a tunnel.
It will make you cold, it will make you indifferent, it will steal your sense, of right and wrong, and you will become like an animal. An animal that is possessed, by a devil, that will “instruct” you to do that which is wrong, with no sense, to know, you are hurting yourself, and maybe others. It will blind you, and you won’t even know. It will deceive you.
See, God is a spirit, and when we worship God, we have to worship Him, in spirit and in truth, so we always have to be aware of the whisper, we listen to in our conscience. (see John 4:24, King James only)
For it will either be good or evil. Have you ever seen a commercial, where there is an angel on one shoulder or a devil on the other? The goal, is to defeat that devil and allow God to take the place of that devil. And even here, I will say know whose voice you listen to. Because there are many counterfeits, and false voices. Not all angels are good angels….
If you do not know Gods voice, you will get cold. You will be deceived. Your heart, will become indifferent, stony, and even deaf.
Dear friend, do not let that voice, that sense of being cold, control you. Do not let it cause you to self-destruct. Or to hurt someone else.
When I was growing up, when I did things that were wrong. I saw how they “controlled” me. Like smoking, it made me smoke, I craved it. Yet I saw, how it hurt me. I became weak, physically, lazy, and well we all know smoking is bad. But when you are caught up in any sin, it will control you.
I hated that, in fact, I still hate anything that is not of God, because it is sin. I don’t want anything to control me. But God. So, I am glad I listened to that small voice, and obeyed God, I asked God, take this desire away from me. And He did. He did it for my mom, and she told me how to ask God, and to obey. I did.
But He took it further, and got me to see the root of all my sins. For you see, we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD; Romans 3:23 King James.
So if you think you are o.k. you don’t need God, think again. Maybe your conscience is so full of “pride” another characteristic of the devil, that you think, you are fine, without God, think again. Because we will all bow before God. We will all confess Jesus as Lord, when we stand before Him. Don’t let even that pride, confuse you. Because you will reap what you sow, even now, on earth. But after life, there is hell, and you do not want that for your future.
You see, right now, even as I am prompted to write. I know God wants you to hear Him. I have learned to obey God. I have learned to run to that sweet voice, to receive counsel. By going to my King James Bible, and to my Lord in prayer. Because it is truth. Even writing this, is by sweet counsel of the Holy spirit, because God wants to reach you.
Friend, I just have a strong sense, that if you deny this, that what I have wrote already, that you are rebellious, and even when friends, or family tell you the truth, you always have to feel like you have to challenge it, you have to fight the truth, because you think they may be judging you. You reject it.
I see it myself with others, who do not see the truth, but think it is judgment. We are called to warn one another. So I warn you, be careful with that voice you hear. Be careful, with what sense of right and wrong you use to navigate your way in life. A good moral conscience, can only be clear, when Jesus, is that sense of right and wrong.
Please, listen to God, go to Him, don’t be ashamed, to listen to your whisper of a conscience. It is God calling you. Go to His throne. Kneel before Him, tell Him you are sorry. Perhaps tell someone else you are sorry, cleanse that pride, let Christ embrace you.
Did you know apologizing, to someone, will bless you? Because you are then letting God speak to you. He tells us to forgive, but we have to sometimes ask for it.
Let Him record, your repentance and humbleness before Him, so His voice will be stronger. Get a good King James bible, and daily seek Him. Friend, the whisper, will never leave when it is Christ. You will always know His voice, to have the mind of Christ.
Much love, and blessings, Elena Ramirez
