BEING BROKEN DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANNOT GO ON ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2BEING BROKEN DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANNOT GO ON….
Sometimes, we stop, and we say, why Lord, why?

We wonder why we have taken this path in the journey of life? Or why circumstances have led us to be where we are, doing what we do, and we wonder…

If you are wise, you will repent, for your part in it.

For circumstances, out of your control that has made you broken, God is merciful, and God will have vengeance. And can bring a restoration…

Just trust Him….but more then anything go to God. With all your soul, with all your might, and let Him see your broken heart. Your brokenness.

THE SACRIFICES OF GOD ARE A BROKEN SPIRIT: A BROKEN AND A CONTRITE HEART, O GOD, THOU WILT NOT DESPISE. PSALM 51:17 KJV.

Comparing ourselves, in the good, or the bad, with others really is not healthy for ourselves. Don’t do that. Let God have that doubt, or envy, or frustration.

For those of us who have been broken from time to time, we have a resilience, that motivates us to go on, move on, in Christ. No matter what. Because if you have made Christ your Lord, and savior, you know all things are possible.

Let me repeat that all things are possible with God. STILL…

No matter what life says, you are, or people say you are, or even deny what you do, or cannot do. God always has the final word.

He says, BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD: I WILL BE EXALTED AMONG THE HEATHEN, I WILL BE EXALTED IN THE EARTH. PSALM 46:10 KJV.

When you feel broken, lost, hurt, abused, alone, remember to be still in your heart, knowing who He is. As the saying goes, “Let go, and let God.”

Let God be exalted in your heart, among people, as you give God glory, and in all you do. Like the scripture says…This is how you are healed. In that brokenness. Do that with all your heart, and you will see the healing process….

This is how you go on…..I know.

Don’t undermine someones pain or sorrow.  I tell myself this as well, because I have learned to put on my own armor, when I see, or sense pain or sorrow in myself, and others.

I have to keep my armor on.  Or I would fall apart.  I would not be effective for the Kingdom of God.  I cannot walk in my way, but the way of Christ.  So no song of self-righteousness, will make me stronger.  But the righteousness of Christ.  Not my self-righteousness.

So when I see people with no compassion.  No understanding, no comprehension of someones pain.  Including their own.  I wonder why they react the way they do.  

No one, understands our own pain, more then Christ, since He suffered for our sins.  For He was compassionate, He was love, He was truth, He was a Physician, He was so much more, that we have to use as an example.  

But we have to go to Christ.  I know I do….and I do.  

When I sense silence, or no offering of compassion, to those that are hurting.  Or if I see someone being mean spirited, I wonder why is there no sense of compassion?

You see, we never know, why people are the way they are.  What contributed to their coldness, or their passiveness, or even their own mean spirit.  So many times, you see people who are rude, or mean, but they don’t know how to give it to Christ.  In fact, many that are that way, deny God.  So when people deny the only true source for healing, they use others as a scapegoat for their pain.  

They get self-centered, selfish, and prideful.  And you have to look real close, or you will not have compassion for that miserable soul.  

I don’t often share my own pain, or sorrow, because I have learned to give it to God.  I have found people don’t always know how to react to others pain.  Or how to console.

Yet, there are things that it just does not seem as if they will heal in my own life, until I stand before God.  So I sometimes hide my pain, or saddness.  

And all I know, is that, I cannot lose my sense of who God is, amidst the pain I sometimes feel, and let that control me.  I cannot.

But it does make me look at people through eyes, that have hurt, to give someone compassion.  Sweet kind, and beautiful compassion.

Compassion, that is love.  That Christ told us to give to one another.  Even our enemies.  How wise our Lord is.  How everything connects, when we use love.  How it solves problems, heals wounds, and brings peace.  It is a commandment.

So as I write about this, please think about how you deal with people.  Maybe you have reason to be angry with someone.  Maybe someone has hurt you deeply.  Maybe, though, if you tried to understand, what molded them to be that way, you can release your own forgiveness, with compassion, to not react with an eye for an eye to them.  Maybe you can stop someone from doing mean, or evil, because you are compassionate.  

God only knows why people are the way they are.  But I have learned, on my own.  I don’t have to embrace that kind of spirit, to grow.  To grow in Christ means, I have love, for others, and myself, to not get caught up in things.  

I just pray, for those who are grieving, angry, or hurt.  Maybe you will have this pain, or sorrow, that I understand, that does not seem to go away.  But I pray, you are always comforted with love.

I never want to undermine your pain.  But don’t undermine my pain either.  

And why I search for God so much.  Unless you have walked in my shoes, or I in yours, all we can do is comfort each other.   But to be mean, and to devalue your pain, or mine, is not productive.  What produces fruit in our lives.  Is love….with compassion.  

WHO CAN HAVE COMPASSION ON THE IGNORANT, AND ON THEM THAT ARE OUT OF THE WAY, FOR THAT HE HIMSELF ALSO IS COMPASSED WITH INFIRMITY.  HEBREWS 5:2 KING JAMES.   

FINALLY BE YE ALL OF ONE MIND, HAVING COMPASSION ONE OF ANOTHER, LOVE AS BRETHREN, BE PITIFUL BE COURTEOUS.  

MARK 1:41. KJV.  

AND OF SOME HAVE COMPASSION, MAKING A DIFFERENCE.  

JUDE 1:22.  KJV. 

Just my thoughts,

Loving God, with all our hearts, soul, and mind, is a commandment.  But if you love your sin more then loving God, you are not free.

Oh you may fool yourself, and think you are saved.  But God wants all of our obedience.  Not lip service, or fake worship, etc. 

See, I know, because I used to walk the fence, when it came to God and my sins.  My excuse was I was young, and I wanted to have fun.  Well I reaped that.  I reaped the heartache, of not giving my all to Christ.  

Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord doth not accept them: he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.  Jeremiah 14:10 King James.  

That actually scares me, and enough to obey.  Because we do reap what we sow into our lives.  

But I do now, I choose to obey and I am careful not to compromise my walk with the Lord.  Its not worth it!

When I think of what Christ did for me, and for me to repeat my sins…..

Well for cleansing, and a guarantee of my salvation it hurts my heart to know my sins put Him on that cross.  I repented, and still repent to be honest, daily, because every day, we are challenged by the enemy.  Its his job to deceive any of us.  To steal our crowns.

And he does.  But if you know truth, Gods holy word, the King James bible, you have armor, that has no kinks in it, no loopholes, it protects you.  No soft spots.  To penetrate you.  No temptation too great, God removes that.  But you have your part.  

You can quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  

But getting into that King James bible, and disciplining yourself to do it, is what brings the wisdom, knowledge, insight, and yes fear of God.  Prayer, oh how sweet it is to run to the throne of God.  

Because when a Christian says they love God, but continue in sin, they have no fear of God, and they love the sin more.  The consequences of that is death.  Its spiritual death.  And even physical.  Because you become cold.  No moral compass.  And worse then that, denial into the Kingdom of God, when you die.  Who wants that for their destiny?  No thank you. 

Its pathetic, for any of us.  But mercy and grace, what a blessing that is, but you cannot abuse it.  You cannot.  Time, it runs out.  Oh if I could go back, I would.  But I cannot.  I can only do what I can at the place that I am, to warn others, and for myself to be ever so careful.  

I don’t want to love my sins.  I don’t want to offend my God.  I don’t want to take advantage of grace.  Grace is not an excuse to sin.  I do not want to give place to the enemy by my own stupid choices, of sin.  No wonder we reap the consequences.  It is purposed disobedience.  

Oh I am not perfect.  I know it.  But I will hold onto the sword of truth with all my might.  I will run to the throne of grace, and I will try and obey.  Trying….is better then not even acknowledging this.  

The body of Christ, has been taught some nonsense, because I never hear any teachings on the fear of God.  But if a pastor, will not remind the body, as a shepherd, the sheep will not know.  Because they don’t search themselves.  It is the blind leading the blind.  

Search for God, and it requires leaving that sin, and searching for this love that only God gives.  Nothing else is worth it.  

My thought for today, I pray, just to be near Jesus.  

After a spiritual battle with another so called Christian today, who thinks Halloween is o.k.  I just want to get the battle behind me, for Christ has me covered by the blood of Jesus.  I will not give place to the enemy in this holiday.  And I have my armor on.  To claim the promises.  Of God.  

 Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

All blessings are connected to God. ALL BLESSINGS! And sometimes when I listen to people they try and take credit for it. They try to bring the attention to what they did. Look I don’t dispute what ability, one may, or may not have.

But it comes from God. That is the connection. Why do you think God gave you that ability? Why do you think, as a blessing it came through, and it came from this or that person, who gave it to you….Why do you think you got it? Because God is that good, that great, and His love is so deep. He makes a way, when there was no way. Jesus, is that way, the truth and life.  JOHN 14:6

And I just think, we need to be mindful, that all good things come from God, in one form or another. Its enough, to realize, how important it is to give God glory.

Its so important to acknowledge His great accomplishments, and love, that just may trickle down to you. Do you have food, do you have a roof over your head, do you have family?  More then anything, do you have your salvation?  God made that way through Christ.  And if you have not ensured your salvation, make the choice even here to do that.  God is using me to remind you, your eternal salvation is at stake.  Love Him, repent, and live for Christ.  Get a good King James Bible, and let God speak to you every day of your life.  Never be ashamed.  Never…..

Give God glory friends, it is the right thing to do. I Love you in Christ, and more then anything Christ loves you.

Look at this scripture slowly, eat it, and be nourished, with wisdom.

More then anything Father, I love you, I thank you for prayers answered, and not answered. I am just grateful, and I thank you publicly, and give you glory, honor and praise. You are the root of all my blessings, and all good things come from you. In Jesus name, Amen. 

O THE DEPTH OF THE RICHES BOTH OF THE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! HOW UNSEARCHABLE ARE HIS JUDGMENTS, AND HIS WAYS PAST FINDING OUT. Romans 11:33

IN MINISTRY? USE THE KING JAMES SCRIPTURES ~ HERES WHY! ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word.  His true word the King James.  Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith....http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com  new lower prices.

True faith, comes from God, and He gave us His word. His true word the King James. Read more, in my book, why I promote the King James Bible, for your own faith….http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com new lower prices.

Dear Friends, in Christ,

I write this as a letter, but as one of my posts, I want to encourage you, to pray, and write the word of God, from the King James Bible.  And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.  Deuteronomy 6:9.

I specify the King James scriptures, because I truly believe the anointing, and holiness, are in these Bible verses.  There are so many compromises to scripture, that the anointing is gone I believe from these other versions.  And I know this is very controversial to some, who are searching for understanding.  But, when you take a scripture, that was originally based on the King James scripture, and convert it, something is lost there, and I do believe it is the holiness, and the anointing.  Remember the King James has been preserved for 400 years.  The words of the Lord are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.  Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.   Psalm 12:6-7.

Changing it turns into part truth, and part lie.  Remember what God says and in so many scriptures.  TO THE LAW AND TO THE TESTIMONY: IF THEY SPEAK NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  ISAIAH 8:20.  

I do look at that.  And in this time and place of my ministry, I am a truth seeker.  I look at the fruit of ministries, I have grown that much.  I don’t take their word for it.  I take the true word of God, to validate truth.  I see so many compromising truth, that there are many ministries I won’t support, nor will I advocate to others, and in fact, I run from them.

Think of these words, from God, and know the truth….II Timothy 4:2-5  Preach the word be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves, teachers having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and they shall be turned unto fables.  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.  

Now, I just sense, that there are so many out there, who love God, and want to please God, and yet they need the power of scripture to build a foundation.  When you share word, King James scripture, there is an anointing, that speaks for itself.  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:  it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  Isaiah 55:11

One thing people can say about me, is for the most part, whenever I have a thought, I build that thought with a King James scripture.  I give that as a foundation.  Because lets be honest, without it, I would be like any other minister or pastor, who does not.  Look around, and see, that many do not share scripture, and without that, its just meaningless, our thoughts, without a foundation.  This separates us from wolves in sheeps clothing.

And I am not just talking about listing a scripture reference, I am talking about writing the entire verse out.  Doing this, sharpens your sword of truth, as well.  But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?  John 5:47.  

If you want to be set apart to do the “true” work of God, you need to do some research.  If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.  I Corinthians 14:37.

You need to get a good concordance, that supports a King James Bible, and take the time, to look the scripture up, to add to your thought, and to build a foundation.  And in this time of technology, get a good King James Bible app.

This is time consuming.  I won’t deny that.  But as Christians, we cannot get lazy, nor passive, if we really do want to make a difference for God.  You need to start writing your thoughts out, with the Holy word of God, to support, your thoughts, that God will give you.  Even if you just search for a scripture, and write it on your social media pages, you are changing the spiritual realm, with Gods holy word.  Don’t let the world dictate to you this is wrong.  Whose report will you believe in?Who hath believed our report?  and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  Isaiah 53:1

As you do that, you are bringing light, to a dark world.  You are bringing truth, and no one can deny the word of God.  No matter what anybody says…the word stands on it’s own, and cannot be shaken.  It is truth.  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:  bind them about thy neck:  write them upon the table of thine heart.  Proverbs 3:3

And if you need answers to prayer, same thing.  Look up a scripture for your need.  Don’t get lazy in this.  For healing, finances, etc.  Studying the word of God, will stick with you, and you may not remember every single word.  But it will kick in.  We are to “pray without ceasing”….I Thessalonians 5:17.  For it is sanctified by the word of God, and prayer.  I Timothy 4:5.  And God will honor his word.

Yes, I do recommend trying to memorize scripture, but when you pray the word of God, when you write it, when you memorize it, you have a foundation for your own needs.  When you write it, the truth is you are sowing the word!  The sower soweth the word.  Mark 4:14.

I am so surprised, myself, that I have done this, but it comes to me, it gives me discernment, it gives me understanding, it connects me with the Holy Spirit, to know truth.  And in this, I give glory and praise to God, for He guides my life.  I have been writing for years, but He taught me that from the beginning.  Stablish Thy word unto Thy servant, who is devoted to Thy fear.  Psalm 119:38.  And yes, I do fear God.  It is health and life….The fear of the Lord tendeth to life:  and he that hath it shall abide satisfed: he shall not be visited with evil.  Proverbs 19:23.

If you want to be different in your ministry, and just as a Christian, start doing this now, and very soon, you will grow.  I do have a faith, and trust in God, that at this point of my life, I see the fruit of it.  I see, that with God all things are possible.  And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.  Luke 18;27.

That does so very much for my faith.  I understand my Lord, in so many ways.  And there are things, I may not understand, but I know, that I know God is a holy God, and He has his ways, His principles, His truth.  Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be Holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.  Leviticus 19:2

I wrote in my last post, that yes, God is legalistic.  We have to know His heart in such matters.  Sloppy religion, grace based only on one part of doctrine, will not cut it.  You need the truth, and I hope, this post, of a letter, will encourage you, to write and pray Holy scripture from the King James Bible, so you can grow.  And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and the cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.  Joshua 8:34.

So you can make a difference to a world, that so needs Jesus Christ.  Please remember this and apply it, begin…. Finally my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.  To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.  Philippians 3:1.  

Do it because of your own salvation.  I have longed for thy salvation, O Lord, and thy law is my delight.  Psalm 119:174.

And with this last thought from God, as you finish reading this….remember this promise from God.  For it is a promise.  Let someone see you writing His word.  Let someone, who needs a promise from your own writings, let them see the promise from God.  More then anything, yes anything, let God see you writing His word!

You can make a difference for yourself, and for someone else, as you write and pray the Holy word of God….Share this post, as a start….

THEN SAID THE LORD UNTO ME, THOU HAST WELL SEEN:  FOR I WILL HASTEN MY WORD TO PERFORM IT.  Jeremiah 1: 12.

Much love, in Christ, with His thoughts….Elena Ramirez

DO YOU HAVE THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT? ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


Christmas can be in your heart with faith....I can help.  http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

Christmas can be in your heart with faith….I can help. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

Do you have the Christmas Spirit?….

I do, I have a feeling like I did when I was a child. With an opened heart, I remember just wanting to feel the good things of Christmas. I was anticipating, hopeful, longing, with child like faith…and so wanting to see God send miracles, and angels, and what I remember again, was just longing to see the beauty of the season.  I wanted to go deeper then the Santa Claus, or the Snow man stuff…. I wanted miracles…..

We were poor, and when you don’t have you seem to pray harder, even as a child. You want…..and now, well material things don’t seem to matter that much. Now don’t get me wrong, I like nice things like the next person. But what I long for is to see God glorified.

In such a wonderful beautiful way, that expresses, who God is, and that He in His love, sent His precious son, Jesus Christ. And in a humble stable, with just a star above, wise men, came looking for Him.

I want to be like that. Searching, with all my being, all my heart, for the King of Kings.

Yesterday, I had a conversation with someone here, on FB, and they wanted to say Christmas was pagan, and they even used scripture. Well I pulled out scripture, and I asked this person, why would you want to deny the glory to God, concerning the birth of Christ? It is scriptural. (Luke 2)

The answer they gave was so “legalistic.” You know, I love God’s law, but I never want to twist it, to hurt someone, or to be judging. It scares me…..but I have to tell you, when I celebrate Christmas I celebrate love. The sweetest of love, even if our Lord’s birth was not documented in December.

I celebrate, that this precious King, the son of Almighty God, came, to set me free, and all of us who believe. I don’t celebrate, this paganism, this person, kept insisting on.

And you know, all I can say, today, in this moment, I have hope again. Hope for our world, for each other, for love, to overcome, and to see victories, in this life. Miracles, have just become to me, a way to believe, and I do believe……

May Christmas sweet, and kind, loving, and with the eyes of a Child be a part of yours…..as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus, who came to save us all……It is in my heart, and I just want to say this….

GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH PEACE GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN, Luke 2:15….

Yes with all my heart, I want to give God glory, and I want to see His power, shining in all of our lives…..for His glory.  Just my thoughts, Merry Christmas dear hearts, wherever you are….

PRINCIPLES OF LOVE AT CHRISTMAS 2012


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen I write, and share my experiences, I sometimes, get opposition, as it being a method.  But let me clarify something, love is not a method, but a principle of who God is.

And so I want to clarify that, for the sake of communication and understanding.

People think that if they do this or that, and mimic something I may write they can get it.  So if you are doing that, I hope you see love.  Because I do try to imitate Christ.

For love is always an issue of the heart.  It is a principle that God has implemented.  Like what goes up must come down.  Love never fails…..

I want to share some principles, I have learned, because they do work, because that is who God is.  He is love.

At Christmas, many people, do not understand Gods great love, and that He sent His only begotten Son, to save us, and really Christmas is about love.  Its about a great and sacrificing God that gave to us the world, His only begotten son, so we could be saved.  Saved from our sins, but saved from the snares of hell, and the devil.

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER WOULD BELIEVETH IN HIM, SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.  John 3:16.

Saved…..

The world, does not recognize that, and more and more, we are starting to see society, and others taking a notion, that Christmas and love is a religion.  Christianity.  Folks, its not a religion, and it is not a philosophy.  And it certainly is not pagan.  My goodness, people distort, truth.  Gods truth.  Read Luke 1 and 2.  The King James bible. And understand the Christmas story.  In fact, in love read it to your family.

But what I am trying to describe is not labeled.  By religion, and stereo types.  Its a relationship.  I have a relationship with God, because I understand His principles.  His ways.  His truth, and His love….by seeing what Christ did on the cross for me.  I accept it, and I am grateful for His sacrifice.

This is not religion.  Rules and traditions made by men.  That is religion.  This relationship is love, and love never fails.

As a Christian, I celebrate Christmas in honor of Christ, and I am thankful to God, that His Holy word, the King James Bible gives an account of this beautiful true and historical event, that I recognize, as my Lords birth on earth.

People, are so misguided.  Sadly, they get this so confused, because first of all, they do not have a relationship with Christ.  They do not seek Him as Lord and savior.  They do not understand the love.  They think it is a religion, or they think they can do without Christmas or Christ, or even the tradition.

They are so angry, they are so misled, and this affects other members of the family or the relationships they can and cannot have.  They may celebrate it, but there is no fruit in the snowman, or in the tinsel and gold, that just seems to remind them how dark their hearts are, because the true light of the Lord is not with them or within them.  But the darkness of the world dominates their hearts.

So love, cannot shine.  But they go through the motions….the tradition missing the true message.

And then there are those who do not believe.  They have no love in their hearts, and they hate the Christmas message.  In society now, atheists, fight any kind of reference to Christ.  From the nativity scene, to praying in public, using scripture etc.  And that goes against an Americans Constitutional rights, and as Christians we need to be indignant, and stand up for our love in Christ.

But in all actuality, it goes against a persons human rights.  We should all be given the choice to choose to believe or not to believe.  To express who we are, in this relationship.  And we do naturally, God is a gentleman.  He does not demand, he is not a tyrant but He gives us the way.  Through Christ, we just have to choose Christ.

But those who try to deny this, relationship and from us are tyrants.  Sadly, when they stand before God, they will be sorry they did not choose love.  For they will reap what they sowed.  Hell. No mercy.  And do I dare to say this, but this is a principle, according to Gods word.

God is not mocked folks.  The love, that is a principle, cannot be diminished, just because people do not want to believe.

But if we are truly in Christ, nothing can separate us from His love.  Nothing.  So do not be discouraged.

Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalites, nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the LOVE of God, which is in Christ Jesus.   

God intended for us to love Him first, and then one another.  He intended, for Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6.  He intended, for us to understand His ways, and keep His commandments and to be in fear of Him.  Yes, I will say it again.  In fear of Him.

Consequences of sin, are a principle.  We reap what we sow.  What goes around comes around.  I do not use the word karma because this is not a scriptural word.  But what we do in life returns to us.  It is a principle.

When we give love, when we are compassionate, when we are caring loving, polite, and humble, in the sight of God, we begin to see ourselves in His love.  We begin to see who Christ is.  But this is a process.  For we must truly see who He is, before we can even know who we are, or who we can be.

It is not instantaneous, but when love is evident, and when God is evident in a heart, the principles of love take affect.  We then begin to reap love, because we give love, as Christ did.

As a principle of love.  I do not impose my beliefs on anyone.  I do not demand people believe.  I do not expect everybody to understand, this relationship of love, I have with Christ.  But, I do encourage you, to find your own relationship with Christ.

But lets make it clear, Christ is the only way to true salvation, and to love.  Everything else, is false.  They are counterfeits.  I do not impose my beliefs, but I will not let someones disbelief, stop me from loving my Lord, serving my God, and being who I can be in Christ.

The best I can receive can only come from Gods throne.  So I have learned not to seek presents, but His presence.  Everyday of the year.  I try to keep this principle in my heart every day.  By trying to be love, like He is love.

Families, that can just try to find the love, can find the way.  Giving love through, grace, extending this.  Remembering Gods intention is for all of us to be brothers and sisters in Christ.  Even if people do not believe, or they do not agree with you.  Your faith,is what they will understand that is love.  Seek God in front of your family, by even including them to pray with you.

If we put Love first, we put God first, and the love is universal, it is understood, and it is a principle that will not fail.  Don’t let the love go, just because someone does not agree with you.  This is very important, because that is exactly what the devil wants to do.  Is steal the love.  Even if your right, and they are wrong.  Do not let go of the principle of Gods love.

Practicing love is not a method, it is an issue of the heart.  Gods heart.  So I do try to imitate Gods love.  By being courteous, loving, kind, caring, not imposing, as I said, but being honest, and truthful in love, with my family.  Being very careful, with judgmental thoughts.  Because its not my job.  And we do not always know, why people, are the way they are.

And when I see that, its like someone is trying to be God, and trying to throw Him off the throne.  He would not allow it anyway.

No pretentious or lying spirit, can interfere with love.  But it is only because of Christ, that I can even recognize, the beauty of family.  The gift they are.

The true friends, I do have I cherish.  I so appreciate love.  Gods way.  You see, I did not always have it, but I have learned.  This principle of trying to do things Gods way, in obedience, and in love, makes me a better person.  It brings me love.

I always want to be a reflection of Christ to my family, my friends, and to the world.  Why?  Because love is needed.  And our world so needs love.  They need Christ, what would Christ do, as a principle?

Yes practice love, till you become an expert at it.  Till it becomes a part of your heart.  But it can only happen if you let Jesus into your heart.  He knocks on the door of your heart.  Do you have someone you need to forgive ?  Do you have to look beyond that person, and their faults, and just see love, that God loved them?   Do you have it within you, to just let the boundaries come down?To be real?  To be love….If you do not have love in your life, or in your heart you will never be fulfilled.  You will never know your true potential.  You will never really know God.  In a relationship.  He is spirit.  The spirit of love, can come to you.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent.  Behold I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.  Revelation 3:19-20

Ask God for love, to help you love, and to give love, and to be love….but ask Christ in your heart.  Let Him, into the door of your heart.  You will have to repent.  You will have to see the error of your non-loving ways.  He may discipline you.  Because the principle is we reap what we sow, but His grace, can be extended, and you may not face consequences.

Thats how good God is.  If we repent, in love.  It can happen.  I know, I could have reaped many things, as a principle but Gods grace spared me.  Because I did seek Him and His love.  Thats why I love Him, even more.  I praise Him!

But, even here, do you need to extend grace to someone, because you know God extended grace to you.  In forgiveness?  Read Matthew 6:15 King James Bible.

And then never let Christ go, never let Him leave your heart.  By putting something else there.  An idol, or an agenda, that is not of God.  Watch your heart, or love will leave.  It is a principle….

Principles of God.  Happy John 3:16.  For those who want to argue, or reject this, or even want to just say Happy Holidays.  I know what Christmas is about, its about love….so yes, if I could tell you, the short answer.  I would say, Happy John 3:16. Not happy holidays.  Because Jesus, is the reason, for the season.

With love, Elena

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, (charity) I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge:  and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.  And though, I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned and have not love, it profiteth me nothing.  Love suffereth long, and is kind, love envieth not:  love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil.  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth.  Beareth all things, believerth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  Love never faileth…..

I Corinthians 13:1-8

John316My prayer of hope….

Merry Christmas thank you Jesus for your love and obedience, that gives us Salvation.  Love for now, and for eternity….A principle of love, that I recognize from Christmas, because you love……dear Lord, thank you, Father help me to be love like you.

In Jesus name.  Amen.

Just my thoughts, with Love…..Merry Christmas, and to God be the glory,

Elena Ramirez
