A TRIBUTE TO A FRIEND WHO HAD THE GIFT OF MAKING ME LAUGH….


GOD BLESS MY FRIEND PAT DARU

This is a photo, one of very few, that I have of my friend Pat Daru.

I want to honor her, because she had passed away, in March, but nobody told me. I got a Christmas card yesterday, and her husband notified me. That, she had passed away. When I read that, I began to cry.

I want to tell you about a person, who touched my heart, in a great way. I used to work with her, when I worked for the phone company, and when I met her, instantly, I received joy. You see, she was the kind of person, who just made you laugh.

Not at her, but with her, because she had such a sweet way, of making everything light hearted, and funny. She was not mean spirited, in any way, or with anyone.  I never saw that.  But, because of this ability, she had, I laughed, and laughed, and laughed.

I would just see her, and get happy, because as soon as we chatted, something funny was said. We would be rolling on the floor, in laughter.

This photo may not be very complimentary, to either one of us, but it was because we were laughing. When I met her, I had just truly began to walk with the Lord, and I would share with her, my testimony, and just the good news about Jesus Christ.

I always, wanted to give her hope, and inspiration, because she did not always have a lot of self-esteem.  I probably did not either.  Life sometimes wounds people, and so we could relate to each other.  Yet she was beautiful to me, in the sense, of who she was, and could make me laugh.

So, I would try to compliment her. It was easy.  She was so real, and sweet.  She so appreciated me for knowing that about her, and acknowledging to her, what I saw in her.  So, she would also bless me. One day, she gave me an award, and she gave me, an “Angel on Earth award” Because she saw the anointing, the gift, God placed in me, and she wanted to bless me. I still have that award, pinned up, on a bulletin board.

You know, all I know, is she was someone, who touched my heart. And encouraged me, as well, in Christ.  The only thing, I regret, was after I left the company, I did not keep more communication with her. She was busy, with her family. She had three children, all boys, but they were triplets. She had her husband. And I had my family, so I guess, not as an excuse, but the truth be told, people live separate lives.

I wanted to share this with you, because it is Christmas.

I hope, my little story of my friend, touches your heart. If I could encourage her, or you, I would tell you, how precious, your friendship means to me too. All of you. Why? Because you are all children of God. And I know, so many do not know that. But, because of her, and others, I have found, who I am in Christ. And I know my mission in life, is to bring glory, to God, inspire others, and speak truth to the Lost. Because life is precious. What a wonderful gift, we have, but we need to see the potential of it all…..

I have to just say, I realize this Christmas, more then ever. How precious, friends and family are to me. Gifts, things, they are nice. But to have what I have in God, I would never trade. I realize, this more then ever. To count my blessings, to bring God into every situation, every friend, in my home, and with my family, with love, and to seek Him, and His presence. Truly, it is the greatest present, I have ever gotten.

My friend, Pat, was truly, a gift, because she brought me laughter, and I pray, God bless her soul. And that He blesses her family on earth. Much love, and thanks for reading my thoughts, about my dear friend, who is now an “Angel in Heaven.” I hope she gets that award too….

Much love, and Merry Christmas to you….Hug your friends, and loved ones, don’t let Christmas go by without releasing love. No regrets…Feel free to share this, if you want to bless someone. Praying her gift of laughter, may make someone smile, with joy too…..

And as I think about it, she really was a gift, from God, because no one, ever made me laugh that much.  And when I had met her, I was just coming out of some changes, where sorrow, had been my friend.  God was so good, he brought her as a friend to me, and in laughter, I was able to make up for a lot of missing laughter.  God bless her soul.  There are people, who touch lives, and we are forever changed.  She was one of them.

And I pray, I am also someone, who can make a difference, in whatever way….for others, because the Lord chooses….I just want to be obedient to follow that path.  In this journey, we call life.  God bless you…Merry Christmas.  Thank you Lord Jesus, for the gift you gave us, by coming to this earth for all of us.  If we just believe….

Blessings, and much love, with “Just my Thoughts”

SEEK THE ANOINTING FROM GOD


The anointing from God, is a gift, that He gives to empower you, to do great things in His name. From the laying of the hands, to heal the sick, or to speak a mighty word, that gives revelation, or to just live victoriously.

I just want to encourage you, about seeking the anointing from God. To be aware of it. To call it forth, by the blood of Jesus. Jesus, is the great anointed one, that was sent to set us free. So His blood, by His anointing, breaks curses, and makes a way. Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6

For you see, the blood of Jesus, is the most powerful force, from God, in our lives, to apply. When you pray, pray, and plead the blood of Jesus. Anoint yourself, and those things, that need Gods power. Know, and do research on the anointing. Ask, God for His anointing. Ask him for revelation.

But know this, the anointing, breaks yokes, breaks bondage, and brings the power of God into any situation. This scripture below, I claim, myself, because I so long, for the anointing of God, to be revealed in my own life. To do great things for our Lord.

Just thoughts, for your consideration. But desire the anointing of God in your life. And the lives of your loved ones. And see, God do a great and mighty thing, that He will get glory for…..What a mighty God, we serve. See God in the anointing of your own life. You will never, be the same…..

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD GOD IS UPON ME: BECAUSE THE LORD HATH ANOINTED ME, TO PREACH GOOD TIDINGS UNTO THE MEEK; HE HATH SENT ME TO BIND UP THE BROKENHEARTED TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES AND THE OPENING OF THE PRISON TO THEM THAT ARE BOUND. TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD, AND THE DAY OF VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD; TO COMFORT ALL THAT MOURN. TO APPOINT UNTO THEM THAT MOURN IN ZION, TO GIVE UNTO THEM BEAUTY FOR ASHES, THE OIL OF JOY FOR MOURNING, THE GARMENT OF PRAISE FOR THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS, THAT THEY MIGHT BE CALLED TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MIGHT BE GLORIFIED. ISAIAH 61:1-3

With Love in Christ, I praise God….

Just my thoughts…Elena Ramirez

A PRAYER OF HONOR…

Father, almighty God, I seek your anointing in my life.  I plead the blood of Jesus.  I come before you humble, repentant, and always before you, an open book.  You know me, you know my ways.  Father, how I long for your anointing to do great things in your name.  To give you glory, and honor.  Anoint me, and break the curses.  Anoint me, and I will never, ever stop, giving you glory, and honor.  Anoint me, to help others.  For the sacrifice of Christ, was too great.  I plead the blood of Jesus.  And thank you for your anointing, in Jesus, name.  Teach me, and show me, never to take it for granted, or to abuse it.  Remind me by your love…..For it is a gift so worthy of Christ.  That I cherish it.  Amen

HELP!!! WHO ARE YOU ASKING FOR HELP?


Have you ever cried out for help, and you have been ignored?  Refused, rejected?  And your spirit, your heart, has been crushed, by the lack of contribution, or help?  Well, mine has.

Even now, I just got a rejection, in my e-mail.

But that’s o.k.  I have faith, and hope.  Peace, more than I can say.

My trust is in God. But I understand, how devastating rejection can be.  And I don’t know, about you, but after a while…..You think about who you ask for help, and you also think about holding back when needing help.  As a writer, I have been writing my commentaries, my Prayers Of Hope, my poetry.  And many other things, for many years.

And for years, I have reached out to this person, or this organization, and time, after time, I have been rejected.  Over and over again.  The thing is, I haven’t given up.  And it has been over a good 18 or 19 years, that I have been writing for the Lord.  Here and there, with my own self-published book, and the other things I have written.  My mission, and goal, is to bring glory to God, inspire his people, and speak a word of truth to the lost.

Yesterday, I visited a little church, with my husband.  And the Pastor, gave a stern message about “self-help” ministries, and to be aware of them, and that they are motivated by greed.  He also talked about how important prayer is, and for us, to stop running here and there to our friends, etc, for help, when we need something, but to go to God.

So I agree, with what the Pastor was talking about, yesterday.  Prayer is the key….

It made me think, and perhaps convicted me, to be careful about my ministry, and to walk carefully.  But it also made me think about the world we live in.  How much money is needed, and how yes, people, and even good Christians can lose their perspective.  But we are all being judged.  And though, some would not admit to that, any fruit, we display in the name of the Lord, is judged.  It is looked at, and I recommend, as well, for it to be tested.  Test the spirits, to see if they are of the Lord.  This is scriptural.  My goal, and I pray, God would see, even in my heart.  That I don’t want to do anything my way.  I do not want to get into “self-help” or self-righteousness.  Anything, I may bring to you as a writer, even though may be a tid-bit here and there, to help you.  I am adamant, about showing you who the true “help” comes from.  For the sake of true righteousness.  It comes from God Almighty.

For  I have heard the message of righteousness, but when one sees, it turns into self-righteousness.  Beware!  And run, from ministries like that. Those are cults.  Or religion.  (ministries that have rules made by people)  Years ago, I just so happened to be involved in a ministry like that, and God opened my eyes.  And we had left that church.  In whatever one is searching for it should be based on God’s word, and in true relationship with God.  For those that worship God worship him, in spirit, and in truth.

Well, yesterday, the Lord opened my eyes again.  In his truth…..

And this time, it was concerning, my hearts desire, getting published.  And fulfilling my hearts desire, to do this as an occupation, but also seeing fruit, that would bless others, and would bless God, and bring glory to his name, but in all honesty, bring a financial blessing, to help me live, and our family live better.

The Pastor, called the people to go to the altar to pray.  And so I went.  But something in my heart, refused, to ask again….

And I just prayed at the altar.  A private prayer.

To God, and to God alone.

I guess, I am so weary in asking for help, that even though, I know God can show me someone who can help me.  And the prayer of a righteous person avails much, also scriptural.  I am weary.

And I don’t want to ask any more.  I will just go to God.

Well something beautiful and comforting, happened….

Even though, I did not go and ask for prayer, the pastor came to me and gave me a word of knowledge.  He came right up to me, and spoke this word.  In front of God, and the congregation.  Led by God, was he.

And I have hope, I don’t want this to sound pessimistic in any way.  And I don’t want to be perceived as having pride.  But in this balance, of trying to do it Gods way, I really just need to seek God, for it is a holy calling.  Because I know God is able.  I have learned a lot in this process, of writing and waiting for the Lord.  But I really believe I learned one more thing yesterday.  And maybe like the people God freed with Moses, maybe I have been murmuring and complaining, too much so.  That like they, it took forty years to get to the promised land.  Well, I hope it does not take forty years, for me to get published….But I am not going to ask anyone or murmur and complain to anyone from here on.  I am really going to try to refrain, especially when it comes to my writing.  And getting published.

And well, unless God tells me otherwise, I am just keeping my eyes focused on him.  Glued and stuck on God only.  Because I want him to get the glory not anybody else, including myself.

I just felt led to write this.  What I want to do, is maybe, bring to your attention, and even to myself, as I write this, is that, perhaps, God is telling me, by having people refuse me, time, and time again, is that, I need to totally look to him.  Totally, submit, surrender, and stop seeking any one to help me, but seek him to help me.  And really, I want him to get the glory in this.

I know he is my source, but I admit, I kept running to others for help.  And I am not going to any more.  If it is Gods will, it will happen, and he will bring someone to help me get published.  But if it is not, I will still be faithful, for I am called to write, in his name.

Maybe, he is telling you that as well, as I write.  Stop looking to others.  Look To God for help…..

God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble.  Psalm 46:1

Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth.  Psalm 124:8

Our soul waits for the Lord, he is our help and our shield.  Psalm 31:20

Blessings, and much love, in Christ,

Elena Ramirez

Just my Thoughts….

Father, I praise you, and seek your answer in this.  Your help, for your glory, honor and praise.  I pray, I am ready, for the answer.  I pray, it will bring people to your throne.  I pray, it will help the broken, the lost.  I pray, it will minister to your people, as well.  I pray, I will be fulfilled in this, for my families sake, as well.  And so I may say, “Look what the Lord has done for me”  Lord, I thank you.  I do….Forgive me, for not always being patient.  As I have waited on you, I know you have changed me.  In Jesus name.  Amen

A CLUE AND A TESTIMONY TO GETTING AN ANSWER TO PRAYER ~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


A Prayer of Hope Devotional

By intercessor and Christian author, Elena Ramirez.  All Copy Rights Reserved, of photographs and written material, and protected by law.

Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Phillipians 4:6-7

Father, what a beautiful promise you give, to give us your peace, in any situation, as we pray.  By this scripture.  Keeping our hearts and minds on Jesus Christ.  Father, we can go through anything, and I will say that again. We can go through anything, and as your word says, “everything” we take to your throne in prayer, through thansgiving. Glory to you my God, my Father, whatever is ailing us, or troubling us, by thanksgiving, we can make our requests known unto you, the King of Kings, our Lord God.  An answer can come. Your word comforts me,to know, that if I go to you, an answer is available, through Jesus Christ, your son.  Father, I am so grateful and thankful to take my needs to you.

Prayer does work.  I know, even the photo above, is a reminder, of a testimony, where you answered my prayer.  I remember, how you sent me an answer from that place.  It was such a sweet answer, and will stay for me, for my lifetime.  It is the “Best of You.” In so many ways, it taught me…..

Why is it Father, that sometimes we think we can handle anything, when we should always be in prayer, communicating to you, seeking just fellowship with you?  How much easier it is to go to your throne, when we have, spent time with you.  Yet, I am so grateful that you hear me at any time.  Any place.  Lord, touch the eyes reading this, to know, with you all things are possible.  I thank you again, in your sons precious name.  Dear Jesus…please by the holy spirit, and your sacrifice on the cross, intercede for me. Thank you, my Lord.   Amen

P.S.  If you would like to read my testimony, of an answer to prayer, from the place where this photo was taken, please click this link.  If it does not take you to the link, copy and paste it to your browser.  I pray it blesses you, I just felt a prompting from God to share it with you.  Because he answered me in such a sweet way.  Be blessed.

A PRAYER FOR OUR NATIONS HEALTH CARE PROGRAM PLAN ~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


A Prayer of Hope Devotional

By intercessor and Christian author, Elena Ramirez.  All Copy Rights Reserved, of photographs and written material, and protected by law.

Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.  Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:  because he trusteth in thee.  Trust ye in the Lord for ever; for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.  Isaiah 26:3:-5

Father, I pray for our nation.  There is division, and after listening to some of our leaders debate this issue of health care, Lord, even more so, I press in to you.  Father, I do ask for divine health, for your people.  For those who seek you, and call on your name.  I pray, that even though many are struggling, that you would provide.  According to your riches, through Christ Jesus.  Yes, we live in this great nation of the United States, but you are our provider.  Lord, I pray, that people would turn to you, and not trust their country or people to provide for their needs.  Father, we all need help, but what I really see, is we need you.  Lord, God Jehovah.  Help my great nation.  I pray, they would come in agreement, but that which would be implemented, would bring life, and please you.  And that money, our taxes, would not be used in any way for evil.  Lord a house divided cannot stand, and I pray this is not so, for my dear United States, where so many, even now, pay with their lives.  And in this prayer, bless our soldiers, and take care of them.  Lord, I just know, we need to get to a place, where more honor is given to you.  For we are one nation under God.  And in God we trust.  So I bless you Lord, I bless your name, and in doing so, please Father, God Bless America.  In Jesus name,  Amen

A PRAYER FOR THE HEART CONCEALED ~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


Prayer of Hope Devotional

By intercessor and Christian author, Elena Ramirez.  All Copy Rights Reserved, of photographs and written material, and protected by law.

It is the glory of God to conceal a thing:  but the honour of Kings is to search out a matter.  The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable. Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer. Proverbs 2-4

Father, in your precious name, I seek guidance, for peace, for those things that are so far from me, to understand.  Like the serenity prayer, I ask for wisdom, to know the difference.  For there are some things, even now, concealed, that I wonder about, and I long to know the truth.  But, for that very reason, that brings me to a place, where I draw close to you.  I trust you.  As that vessel, I want to come forth acceptable in your sight, not demanding, nor seeking my own way in things, that I should not, have access to, in those “matters.”  You know what is best for me.  Lord, make me a vessel for your use.  As I trust you in these matters, that always seem so unsearchable.  If it be your will, I will see, and know.  If not, I will trust you and rest in you, not fretting or losing my peace.  And Father it is to your glory, be glorified in this earth, as it is in heaven, and in my life.  Be revealed in my heart, more than ever.  Thank you Father.  In Jesus name, Amen
