DO YOU WANT GOD TO BLESS YOU BUT YOU DO NOT BLESS GOD? ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


DSC_0015I feel like I am in fifth grade, and I have been given the assignment to explain this:  

Do you want God to bless you, but you do not bless God?  

I have to explain it.  Its on my heart.  It makes me sad for God.  I actually feel the emotion, and the tears, when I think about it.  

Why me to explain it?  I don’t know…. but it does make me think, it makes me want to bless God.  

I guess, because I am older now.  I guess, because I see the error of my ways, in this lifetime of mine.  I see, the wrong turns I took.  I see the sin in my life.  I see, the lack of love, I had in my life time.  I see the lack of guidance I had.  The loneliness, the self-esteem issues I have had.  I see, I reaped what I sowed, so to speak according to scripture.  I see, the gifts and callings I had, like singing, or even my writing….. And I just see, and I have said this before, I see, I missed the boat, the plane, and the train…

But what if?  What if I had the seed planted in me, at an early age, to bless God?  Not just wanting God to bless me, and lets be totally honest, because we want God to bless us, but if I had the desire to bless Him.  Would my life been different?  I don’t know.  But I think it would have.  

If I ever get grand babies, and I pray I do, I hope I can teach them to bless God.  

But I can only concentrate on this moment.  Oh if only, I could plant the seed in you, to plant that seed in others.  So it would grow fruit, and other seeds.  Perhaps that would bless them.  But it would bless God.  

I say that, because I see the world we live in.  I see brothers and sisters in Christ, who are my brethren, but we do not all agree.  I see, so many deceived, by using the per-version, of different bibles, in the versions they choose, that are not King James Bibles.  That are perverted.  

I see the Prosperity messengers, screaming, “holler for a dollar, and name it and claim it.”  But they do not teach first and foremost the salvation message, to get people to see who God is.  To fear God.  To repent even daily, after Salvation.  To make it right with Him, to see Christ as Lord and savior, before they even dare to ask for anything from God.  

I see the lost.  I see the atheists.  I see people hating, and doing deplorable things.  I see the fruit, that is rotten.  

I see things, even in my beautiful America, that are no longer, sacred, holy, or even considered history.  There is hate, among people, races.  Authority is not respected.  Or honored.  Freedom of speech has turned into hate speech.  Life is not honored, and the innocent, babies, that are slaughtered, daily, in the name of choice.  

Yes, I see things, but I know God sees everything.  And how that must grieve Him.  It has to.  These things we see, cannot bless God!

And there is no one, calling out to bless God.  Or at least I don’t hear it.  Maybe you do.  Do you?  I hope so.  I hope, whatever church or religion, you have, has that motto to bless God.  

And I don’t like the word religion when it applies to me, because religion is, rules, regulations, rituals, and traditions made by men, and groups.  And I don’t have “a religion”, I believe I have a relationship with my maker.  

My maker.  My creator.  The Lord God, who is worthy of all praise, glory and honor, for who He is.  For all that He has done.  For His mercy, goodness, kindness, and love.  This being, who gave us this earth.  And gives us life.  Good food, and every perfect thing.  

Think about it.  Our lives are meant to glorify Him.  We are created in His image.  He gives us a soul.  A mind, a heart, to choose him, or not.  He is a gentleman.  He never imposes His thoughts on us.  He gives us a choice.  

Who has throughout time, been there, yes silent many times, but my King James Bible has showed me, that He has had relationships with many.  

Beginning with Adam and Eve.  They had no fear of God, or she and he would not have believed the lie from the devil.  And eaten the fruit.  I always say this, but if only they had gone to God, again…. and asked Him.  God would not have lied.  He would have reaffirmed His truth.  He would have told them, the devil is a liar.  Believe me, and only me.  But they did not ask, and they disobeyed.  

And we all somehow or another, reaped that sin, of them, and it is the same thing today.  We do what we want, and we do not ask God.  How sad.  But we can ask Him…. if our motives are right.  If we think before we ask, whats my part in this?  Will this bless God, if I go to Him in prayer first?  Before I do anything.  

No wonder God tells us He lifts the humble and turns from the proud.  

I think its sad, because I know God would want to do more for us, if we had only tried to obey Him.  Our world, would be different, if sin, had not entered in the picture.  

But its not too late, or at least, I see that for me, any way.  I can try and live my life, obedient, to Him.  Whats left of it….To give Him glory and honor.  I don’t want to leave this earth with that as a question.  Is my salvation in tact?  And how to bless God?  

To think about blessing Him, before I even think about asking Him to bless me.  I mean after all, He has done for me in my lifetime, is that too much to ask?  Bless God….

Friends, I truly hope you take this to heart.  I could write a book on it.  As I could on so many things God has placed on my heart.  But at this point in my life, I think I just need to focus on blessing Him, and in little things.  A little photo, that I share, a little inspiration, that I call “just my thoughts”...a little prayer for somebody, and just a little chat, as I come to His throne….to tell Him thank you Father.  But always acknowledging Him.  Never ashamed.  How can any of us be ashamed, when He does so much for us?  

Thankful for the miracles. That I can say look what God has done for me.   Every thing He has provided…..

You know…. 

The enemy has blinded so many of us.  Even in our silence….where people do not say anything, even with courage, to acknowledge God.  Cowardly, they do not stand for right. They have no David in them I think…. To go after the Goliath.  

And then….Again with Bibles that are not holy.  Where words are distorted, corrupted, no longer holy.  Where the majesty of God is undermined, in these phony words.  And, in stealing that praise that God so deserves.  By even denying His existence.  By changing His Holy word.  How insulting.  And even worse, you know this truth, but you do nothing.  

But let me tell you a little about the God I know.  Though He is love….He is not mocked.  And He keeps His Holy word.  That I call KJV word.  I know His ways are excellence.  I know prophetic words will come true.  Christ will return.  Christ will come for His own.  And the world, will reap what it sows.  The devil, and all his “accusers” will be sent to hell, and hell is a tormenting place.  The wrath of God will be known.  And many will regret their denial of Him.  Because He cannot be denied.  

If I could plead with you, I would tell you even in this analogy.  Repent.  Get right with God quick!  Use a King James Bible.  Throw those corrupted bibles away.  Part truth, part lie.  

Because we never know.  Throw away pride.  Get hungry and thirsty for righteousness.  Acknowledge God, in all your ways, and He will direct your paths.  Be obedient, not only for your sake, but your family, your loved ones, but more for Him.  

BLESS GOD!

That would bless God.  That would give the devil a black eye.  

Develop your relationship with Him…..  

Its so sweet to know Him.  Jesus, is the perfect example of love.  And I pray, never to take for granted what He did for me on that cross.  His suffering, pain, agony, and by His stripes we are healed.  That means spiritually and physically.  

I could never ever, repay Him for that.  I could not.  I know who I am, and I know how weak I have been.  In so many ways…. it makes me sad.  I did not bless God growing up… but I am so grateful at this moment.  

That I just want to thank Him for everything.  I just want to bless God.  I am not super Christian, I am not trying to puff myself up.  By even writing this.  

But, I will say this….You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am, or what I have gone through.  That even brings me this to write this.  How dare anybody mock someones faith?  With or with out knowing.  

But He does know, and it so humbles me, that pride that characteristic of self is evil.  Its comes from the enemy.  And it has shown me the danger, that I know that is a characteristic of the enemy.  

I want nothing to do with the enemy.  I renounce him, even as I write…..

But I love Jesus, and I thank my God the father, by the Holy spirit….

I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But I want to bless God.  I hope you do too.  

Much love, Elena Ramirez

DO YOU EVER ASK WHY I WAS BORN? By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


img_1929DO YOU EVER ASK WHY WAS I BORN?

I am older, but you know you can learn and teach this at an early age. I believe we can learn simple truth, even as a child.  And if it takes adulthood to learn it, then change to a child.  

Sometimes, it takes the trials and errors, the sins, the mistakes, to learn, but, I always say, if I had only known, I would not have done some of the things I have done. I would have avoided, the sins, that took me back.

Last night, I had a dream about something I did as a child. I dreamt about the people involved, and I dreamt about my humbleness to them even now. You see, I hurt someone, I knew as a child.

I took advantage. I am not proud of what I did, and that is between me and God.

And yes, I repented, even then, but it was as if, God showed me, where a gift and calling was taken away from me, because of that. I don’t think I repented, because it was wrong, but because I got caught.  Then…. But now, I know. 

We reap what we sow. Galatians 6:7 KJV.  Look it up there. It made me sad. 

It humbled me again, to know, that yes even mistakes as children, when we should know better, can hurt us down the line.  But if we know, even as a child to seek God, He will show us truths.  

I come to Him NOW as a child.  I come to Him humble.  I come to seek His wisdom, and guidance, in small things and big things.  Sometimes it takes a lifetime to realize who He is, but who we are, and can be.  

Being child like, now, can have its benefits, you see, we are called to be like a child. In understanding, and growing, and seeking God, it can take a whole lifetime, to even understand, such things.  

But the goal, is to continue to be a child, in His sight.  To be someone, who seeks Him, can take a whole life to understand.  Innocence, even if taken away, can be restored, as you lay it down at the cross.  

But what I have learned, and it just came to me, is that, our lives, however different, are to reflect Christ.  To grow, to learn who He is daily.  If you have stopped learning, you have stopped growing in Christ.  

We don’t know it all, and to be hungry, for righteousness, His righteousness, is a gift.  No matter what stage of life you are in.  Stop being full.

WOE UNTO YOU THAT ARE FULL! FOR YE SHALL HUNGER, WOE UNTO YOU THAT LAUGH NOW! FOR YE SHALL MOURN AND WEEP.  Luke 6:25 KJV.

We can get full, and we can get full of ourselves.  Being full can be a sign of spiritual decay.  Hunger for that which is beyond our grasp.  But that can only be fulfilled in Christ.  Hunger for His righteousness.  Self does have to die, so one can live in Christ.  The old man, the old ways.  Ask God to do a work in your soul.  Repent, for being full.  Repent, for just being lazy, or not even searching.  

Friend, all I know, and I wish I could put it in words for you, exactly, but it takes a lifetime, sometimes to find ourselves in Christ.  To find out who He is.  But along the way, give Him glory, honor and praise.  Stir yourself up, in love, for His glory, and so others can see your light that shines.  

Don’t give in to the darkness, don’t take the bait, of the enemy.  That tells you its too late, or you or a loser, or you will never amount to this or that.  Use what God has given you.  Repent, repent, repent.  

I just know, that is such an important factor.  Truly walk in love with others.  Be kind, be accountable.  Be someone, who reflects Christ, by love.  Keep seeking Him, and you will find that path, in your life, as you trust Him.

Why is any of us born?  To know Him, to give Him glory. You can bring light, to someone who is in darkness, but you have to shine for Him, and in Him.

Someday, we will stand before Him.  The books will be opened, it will reflect what you and I did.  This is your chance.  In this lifetime, to seek Him, to make it right.  You can change the ending.  

Like a story, that you think has a definite ending.  It can change, by making it right with Jesus.  And then just keep growing. In Him.  Just get hungry for Him, His presence, His fellowship.  His kindness.  Then you will know the true reason why you were born.  

AND JESUS CALLED A LITTLE CHILD UNTO HIM AND SET HIM IN THE MIDST OF THEM, AND SAID, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, EXCEPT YE BE CONVERTED, AND  BECOME AS LITTLE CHILDREN, YE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  WHOSOEVER THEREFORE SHALL HUMBLE HIMSELF AS THIS LITTLE CHILD, THE SAME IS GREATEST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  MATTHEW 18:2-4

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

You might have a nice view, but you cannot see the bars that contain you. In your own device of jail.

Bullies, they are every where.  I think more so, then ever.  And you pray, you are delivered away from a bully.  I have met a few bullies, in my lifetime, to hurt me, and I pray, never to meet one again.  Nor to be one.  

But may God deal with the bullies that hurt innocent people.  And He will.  This is why I even write from the beginning bullies need to repent to God.  

AN EVIL MAN SEEKETH ONLY REBELLION:  THEREFORE A CRUEL MESSENGER SHALL BE SENT AGAINST HIM.  PROVERBS 17:11.  

When you are young, and just trying to grow, trying to learn, trying to be accepted, and then you meet a bully, it can change your perspective.

The first time, I met a bully, who hurt me, was in my school, in Junior High.  She was in my gym class.  After gym, for no reason, other then her hate, she hit me, in the nose.  She broke my nose.  There was no argument, or anything or any reason to do this.  She just did it.  

But even if there was, one should not react to people like that.  She hurt me, for years afterwards by that one attack.  That I have had to deal with physically.  And I won’t get into details.  

Her name was Pat.  And I will always remember her.  I remember, my mother, going to her home, and talking to her mother.  No apology, no sense of the wrong.  She was in denial.  

I guess I am writing about bullies this morning, because I had an interesting conversation with a “friend” on social media.  

Her name is Pat.  And her post yesterday, was about her daughter, and grand children.  She was actually laughing, with pride, that her daughter, who is now an adult, was having to deal with a child, who is now a bully.  Because the daughter was a bully.  And the cops, actually paid her a visit, with a warning.  I am not sure of all the details.  But what I sensed was a defiance, and that she felt justification.  She was belligerent and was strangely, oddly, so prideful, in this, that she did not see the wrong of it.  As she laughed.  

I confronted her.  And just told her, I thought, her humor was odd, and that this was not funny.  And I explained to her a little of my history, with this girl who broke my nose.  And that, history repeats itself.  Why would she be proud of a bully?  Her grand babies could reap the same, from someone else.  The consequences could cause this person to also be disciplined with jail etc.  

You do not go around, hurting people.  Being a bully.  Its wrong in the sight of God.  She could not handle the truth.  So she unfriended me.  But I still pursued it, and sent her a message.  That I was trying to be her friend, but friends are honest, and say truth.  I told her to repent.  Its a spiritual thing, that has latched on to her, and her family, and the only thing that can break the curse of it, is the love, and blood of Jesus Christ.  Will she do it?  I have no idea, if she even got my message.  

You have to teach your kids love.  They see this, they learn from it. It can be a generational curse.  But you have to break it.

It even begins with the way you treat animals.  With compassion, because they are helpless.  

A RIGHTEOUS MAN REGARDETH THE LIFE OF HIS BEAST: BUT A THE TENDER MERCIES OF THE WICKED ARE CRUEL.  PROVERBS 12:10  

But it made me think, how much we see, even in the news, or we can relate in our own lives.  That bullies do exist.  For whatever reason, power, or money, or prestige, or even the lack of these things, can make people be mean, cruel, and they turn into bullies.  Even with rejection.  The enemy, and his ugly characteristics is to kill, steal, and destroy.  But Christ came to give life.  The mind can deceive people.  The battle can be won in the mind.  But one must strive to have the mind of Christ.  In love.  

Even in this presidential campaign, there is one bully, we all see.  This bully speaks truth sometimes, but there is something about this bully, that is intimidating, because this bully wants to be the president of the United states.   

With power, one can do much.  Good or evil.  But if we do not harness, and control, with the grace of God any kind of personal power we have.  We have lost control.  We have to see the error of our ways.  Someone who is a loose cannon, with their emotions.  I don’t trust.  

There are bullies in and on the internet.  They say things, to others, that they might not normally say to people in life, but they say things, to hurt, as they hide behind their computers.  Cowardly.  

Bullies, can be cowards.  Because their boldness, their outrage, to hurt, usually comes by hurting someone who cannot defend themselves, so they can look powerful.  

Love makes you consistent.  In a pattern with Christ.  To be kind, compassionate, and considerate of others.  Not to react, with a bully mentality, that only wants to hurt.  Thats actually evil.  

You know, this attack, I got as a young girl.  Taught me to be a warrior.  I will not let myself, be intimidated, or helpless.  I know how to defend myself.  Spiritually, I pray to God.  He defends me.  He deals with my enemies.  And I know He does.  I have seen some who have hurt me, receive correction.  This has taught me to forgive.  You see, scripture tells us, we reap what we sow.  Some would call it Karma, but thats not scriptural.  You need to see it from scripture.  King James scripture.  

But even physically, He taught me how to fight, and fight back.  I cannot even count the many fights, I was involved in.  Growing up, I grew up around a lot of bullies myself.  And that strange spirit, can be caught like a cold.  For there were times myself, being in that environment, I was a bully.  Not proud to say it.  But I was. 

Not much, of one.  But the tendency was there.  People learn this. We can all learn, from the “Pats” in our lives.  And you don’t want it in your life.  You need God, and Christ to always be the example.  

God has been so good to me.  But some of my problems.  Some of my heartache is because of bullies.  Its not a healthy thing. To be a bully.  It is not.  You may think you are entitled to be one.  But its ugly.  Bullies really do have to repent.  And why, because again, you do not want to reap it in your own life.  

THE MERCIFUL MAN DOETH GOOD TO HIS OWN SOUL, BUT HE THAT IS CRUEL TROUBLETH HIS OWN FLESH.  PROVERBS 11:17. 

Bullies need to repent.  And thats all I have to say on the subject.  

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

DO YOU KNOW YOURSELF?


God knows you better then you know yourself! After all He created you. He knows your heart, your desires, your wants, your sins, you faults, flaws etc..He knows everything about you. The wonderful thing is, when you know Christ, and what He stands for, what He did for you, and me, and you have given him your heart, you begin to see yourself differently. Because He lives and reigns in your heart. You know Christ.

If you have not given him your heart, and you have not renewed your mind, well you may still have that “stinking thinking.”

This is a photograph that I took recently at my Fathers grave. The rose, we bought from a vendor, on the street, and I placed it at my Fathers grave. Memorial Day. And as I looked further, it almost seems like their is a tear on the rose. I did cry that day, for all the times, I did not have my father. He and mom, were divorced, when I was a young child. So I do grieve, for the loss.

Anyway, my Father though, did have a part in my life, that I will always honor, and cherish. For you see, I was not to be born. According to doctors, they told my mother, she could not have children. Well to make a long story short, dad prayed for my life, he prayed to God, for me to be born. And here I am….So God does know better. He knows everything about me… And yet as I see myself, in Christ, there are times, when I must come to God, and say….

Father….CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART, OH GOD, AND RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN ME. Psalms 51:10. 

Its like a tune up. You just know, things aren’t running right in your heart, your faith may be down, your attitude may be judgmental, and you know in your heart of hearts, maybe theirs sin….But you need God to make it right, within you. So you can think better, feel better, and see results.

You may not see that old serpent, but you know, he is slithering about, like a snake in the grass….And you don’t want to miss out or lose out in your blessings….So you go to God.

And you ask him to create a clean heart, so your life, will reflect Christ. Praying blessings for you today….

Praying it for myself quietly, today, there is no Prayer of Hope listed, today, it you noticed… Today, my Prayers are private, and quiet.  In the Lord.

Just my thoughts, with love,

THE MEANING OF LIFE (THANKFUL I SAY, THANK YOU LORD)


The meaning of life, to all is different.  And if I were to sum it up, in only a few words here, is to just say “Thank you Lord.”  I suppose, because Thanksgiving is just in a few days, I feel I need to write this.

But being thankful, for me, is on-going.  With every breath I take, I want to be thankful to God.  I want to thank the one, who gives me life, and life abundantly, and more so, because I know Christ is my savior.  I don’t take that for granted, or my life, or any blessing God would give me.

I want to search the deep part of my heart to thank him.  I know what it is like to be poor, to suffer, to be lonely, to be rejected, by love, and even by other people.  That I once called friends.  And even, family members, who do not want to be in my life, or even acquainted with me, in any way.

So, I know what it is like to be broken, spiritually, and physically.  And without any support, or communication.  I have been at the bottom of the barrel.  And its not any fun, or a sense of reassurance, when you are grasping at life.  Alone.

But I tell you this, in all of this, and as hard as it all was, in some ways.  I thank God.  For it has caused me, to search, to know, that God is God, and there is none else.  That truly the fear of him, is the beginning of wisdom.  The meaning of life, comes when you recognize, who He is.  Who Jesus is.  Who God  the Father is, and by his beautiful Holy spirit, he has revealed truth, and understanding, by his Holy word, to know, the meaning of life.

Life is nothing without God.  I know the difference.  I would never, ever trade that for anything.  For I have learned who God is.  He is holy, He is almighty, He is powerful, He is creative, He is savior, He is my Lord, and savior.  Oh and He is so much more.  God is love.

I know, he holds my life, and my soul in His hands.  So with that knowledge, I do bow down before him, grateful, and thankful, and with praise in my heart.  Because I am nothing without him.  Nothing.  I know.  So to me, the meaning of life, can only be fulfilled, by having him, in my life.

And because He is God, I seek him, because He seeks me.  I love him, because He loves me greater.  I want to serve him, because in my poverty of thinking, and being, He serves me, with love.  He has taught me about forgiving, and seeking him in everything.  His love, has taught me, truly that with him, there is real meaning in life, because he has brought me a little family.  I did not have a family, we were broken, because of divorce, and I was an only child.  Misguided, and lost, growing up, because I did not know him.

And, I could go on and on, but to each one of us, for whatever we go through, the good times, and the bad times, the hard times, the unknowing times, the times, where it just does not seem fair.  We have to see with thanksgiving, and faith, who God is, to truly know the meaning of life.

Because I know the difference with him, and without him.  I choose, to serve my God, with all my being, and with my life, dedicated to His causes, not mine, for his glory.  I say, Thank you Lord.  Thank you for with every breath I take, I know it is because you give me life, and life abundantly, because of Christ.  I thank you Lord.

Scripture, Gods Holy word, is another thing I thank God for, and here even in this scripture, I am reminded, as I thank God, this is his will, to please him.  In the meaning of my life….

IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS; FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD, IN CHRIST JESUS CONCERNING YOU.  I THESSALONIANS 5:18.

So, in everything, I want to make sure, that, I thank him for what I have, and for that which, I do not have.  For the true friends I have, for taking the ones, away who were not, and for my family.  For they are an expression of God, as well.  They are love to me.  I am thankful, for favor, for sustaining me, through life.  For providing….for everything, my health, and for any wealth, God would give me.  For angels, for his Holy spirit speaking to me, through the word.  For all my blessings, that I cannot put here, but I know, they are from God.  Not by my works, but by his grace.  I see the evidence, of the meaning of life.  I see God.  And only him, as my source.

This is my on-going Prayer of Hope.  Thankful…..to know the meaning of Life.  For he is the way, the truth, and the life…..John 14:6.  God is the meaning of life…..

Just my thoughts, and praying you know the true meaning of life, now, and in your “Thanksgiving.”

THIS BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYES, AND THEN I DANCED FOR THE LORD!!  THANKFUL….


TRAIN YOURSELF IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD


FROM ONE CHILD TO ANOTHER....

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO; AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  PROVERBS 22:6.

Yes, this is instruction, for all of us to raise our children in the ways of the Lord.  But what about you, who has not known God?  What about you, who has not been taught the ways of the Lord? Well did you know, even if you are old, you are Gods child?  Did you know, that you can be trained?

The Lord, has been putting this message on my heart, for a while.  And I believe, now is the time, to share it.  This is divine appointment, and God is calling you who has wanted a change, in life, but not able to know how or to approach change.

Do you see yourself as a child?  Or do you see yourself, as someone who has been beat by life, and you think it is too late for you?  You may even incline to think like the old adage, that you cannot train an old dog to do new tricks.

Well, like the commercial, tricks are for kids, and you need to know that you are a child, of the King of Kings.  Whether you see it or not.  He created you, and He created you in his Image.  And it is not too late, to get a breaththrough in life, and it is not too late to change.  But you are going to have to determine, that you have to TRAIN yourself.  Because no one else will.  Then when you see that, your eyes will be opened, and you can be fulfilled in life.

God loves you,  you are his child.  And He wants the very, very best for you.  But you have walked in darkness for so long, that now, that the light is coming to you, you may very well, turn your eyes away.  Because it is so bright, it is so much to comprehend.

But TRAIN your eyes, even now, by focusing on Jesus Christ, to hear this message, as you read this to come to you.  Gradually, but with great focus, keep your eyes on Jesus, so the light will not shock your system.  These words, are so deliberate, but I am writing as I feel it from the Holy Spirit.  You see, there is someone, God is trying to reach.  It is you.  And obedient to him, I write this.  You see, you have not TRAINED YOURSELF.  You do not know how to TRAIN yourself.  God wants you to stop, and recognize, you need to TRAIN yourself, by his word, by prayer, by the prompting of the Holy spirit.

Religion, or just a lack of  knowledge, has kept you from the Plan God has for you.  But, He wants you to forget these things, and know, that it is not too late for you.  Even though, you may have gone to Hell itself, in some of the things you have done, or even said, or participated in.  He wants to cleanse you, and make your life account for the plan he has always had for you.

Even here, I sense how much He has grieved because you have been given other opportunities, to turn to him, and you did not obey the call.  You did not, seek him.  You felt inferior, you felt ashamed.  You felt, like you were not worthy of God.  Oh dear one, that is a lie from the devil himself.  You need to understand this with your heart.  YOU NEED TO BEGIN TRAINING AGAIN, BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE!

Let me ask you this….Are you not tired of not getting anywhere?  Are you not tired of seeing any progress in your life?  Are you not tired of being tired?  Your spirit, has been numbed, by the pain, by the coldness of life.  You have tried to protect yourself, by turning off, not caring, not participating, in the things of God.  Thinking, and I know this is a prompting from God, but thinking, if you live like Hell on earth, you can overcome all obstacles, because others would also fear you.  Thereby protecting yourself from others, by being the mean, bad force, that you are.

Another lie from the devil?  For truly within your heart, is a heart, greater than your own anger, and coldness, that you have experienced in life.  Ashamed.  Do not be.  Christ is knocking on the door of your heart.  Let the Lord, take your anger, your hurt, your pain.   It is time, to TRAIN YOURSELF!!  No one else is going to do this for you.  But you.  You have to want to see this.  You have to want to know, there is something better for you.

Now look at yourself…You are a child.  You may even be old, and gray, and hardened by life.  But God can change this.  See yourself first as his child, and then begin  seeking him.  Begin searching for him in his word, the Holy Bible.  Find a church, begin going, get fed the word of God.  Watch Christian television.  Watch Pastors.  Forget that they may ask for money.  Look for those, who are teaching the word, and not asking for your money right now.  Train yourself….

This is the word, the Lord is giving me today, for whoever, will believe, will be saved.  Let that be you.  Train yourself, you are his child.  You will see the changes, they may be gradual, they may be immediate, but you will see the difference.  I know, he showed me, how to train myself in him.  But it began by seeing I was a sinner, and repenting.  It began by Praying the Prayer of Salvation.  (see my link below)  After you pray that, your eyes will be opened.  The light will not hurt you any more, and you can begin the process of TRAINING YOURSELF.  For God himself, will be your trainer.

Blessings, and Just my thoughts,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope

Father, with all honor, and praise in my heart, I thank you for teaching me, and training me.  You still are….I had to though, get to that point, where I released myself, for you to train me.  That is what you are calling someone now to do.  To be trained by you.  They think it is too late.  They think that one cannot be changed, that they are who they are.  But that is a lie from the devil.  Lord, I pray their spiritual ears are opened.  That their spiritual eyes can see, and focus on Christ.  Though the light is great, they may even feel inundated by the thought.  But help them, guide them, to see, to focus, to know, they are your children, and you can make that change, as they train themselves in the ways of you the Lord.  Help them, as you helped me.  In Jesus name,  Amen
