AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FRIENDS TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY FRIENDS…..

A letter to personal friends, friends, I know on Fb only, and friends, I cherish, friends, I hardly know. Friends, who are really no longer friends to me. Yet I call you friends.

Friends, I take that word seriously.

I want to start the New Year of 2017 on a clear slate. I want to make sure, that I ask God for forgiveness. First. Because He is our King. And well because sometimes, well, maybe I sin. And I don’t even know. That I have sinned. Maybe I think something, or do something, that may offend Him. So I repent.

But I want to take this further, with you my friends, so I write this as an open letter. I ask that you forgive me.

I ask you to forgive me, if I come off to strong. If I come off with maybe something you see as being, arrogant. Or I come off, like I am too good. Or a know it all. Forgive me.

I ask you to forgive me, if I write something, that you may take personally. And maybe, I did not think of you in that way, but you took it personally, as if perhaps I was judging you. Forgive me.

Forgive me, if I let you down. If I perhaps committed to do something, but something else got in the way, and you felt slighted, rejected, or put off by me. Forgive me.

Forgive me if I said I would do something, but it did not happen in the way you thought it would. Forgive me.

You see, more then ever, I want to be an expression of Christ. But I know, by wisdom, that we do not all see it all the same. We don’t always all agree. And we are all growing on the vine at different places.

If I share something, or tell you something, even generally, I would hope you would see, that I say it, I share it, because I love you. I love our Lord, and I love truth. I think the thing I hate most is a lie. I hate, how it deceives. Yet I know truth can hurt. So forgive me.

I just know as I look back on this year, that I have had good intentions, but they did not always come through that way. I felt misunderstood, I felt sad, that people change. But that I have too.

I felt sad when I was challenged, and I gave grace, but grace was not extended to me.

I just know its a part of life. We all may want to do the best, we can. but we don’t always come through. So, I reflect on my own life, to ask God and you all to forgive me, if I came across, your way, but you did not see love. You saw something else.

Forgive me. I reflect because I hope to learn from my mistakes. But I realize we all make mistakes. We all sin, we all come short of His glory. He is the only one that is perfect.

I really do want to try. I really do want to be a reflection of Christ. I really do want to clean the slate. Resolutions…. are wonderful goals, if they are committed by Christ.

I just pray, to be someone God will extend mercy to too. So thank you, as I ask for forgiveness.

I don’t care if someone does not understand this, or may mock this….but I know, being humble in the sight of God, and not being proud. Not being accountable, really hurts me more in the long run.

So, I say, Forgive me. Thank you, and God bless you….. May God bless your new year, in whatever you may do.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THE MOVIE UNBROKEN ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


I recently went to go see the movie Unbroken.  Directed by Angelina Jolie.  I had heard a lot of hype about it, so I decided to go and see it myself.

The story line from what I had heard really interested me, about what this man went through, and suffered, and that he was a Christian.

But I also heard, that his Christianity was not really mentioned too much in the movie.  That concerned me, because as a testimony it should give glory to God.  I had heard Mr. Franklin Graham, say on television, that a chapter was missing.  The chapter, where he went to one of Mr. Grahams revivals and Mr. Louis Zamperini gave his heart to Christ.   So I thought, oh no, here we go again, Hollywood is leaving God out of it.

But, that was not the case.  Angelina Jolie, did a beautiful job, in portraying this mans life.  His struggles, his brothers influence, his sense as a child, that he could not do anything.  It showed his great accomplishment to enter into the Olympics. And that he was very gifted.  He did not see that, but his brothers influence, really helped him.  It is a story of learning great strength, and hope in a time of adversity.  This man learned, if he could “take it, he could make it.”  This is what his brother taught him.

Then he went to serve our country.  And in doing so, he found himself, in a lot of trouble, when the plane they were flying in, crashed, after being attacked from the air patrol, they were in to defend our country.  

Three men survived.  One friend, was a Christian, who prayed.  The other, was a good man but he had no hope it seemed.  And….Louis, was a strong man in that which was portrayed of him.  But, he struggled too.  For over a month I am guessing, they were on a raft.  Starving, and not having water, and having the elements of the ocean against them, the sun beating on them, and trying to survive.

In one moment, of the movie, if you did not recognize it, you could miss it.  But it being a small moment, was a very great moment, when he told God, if you save me, I will serve you for the rest of my life.  

God saved him.  Spiritually and physically.  Did he know he was saved?  Did he know Christ entered his life?

Well, the good news, and the bad news of it was they survived.  Two of them.  The one without hope had died.  But they were captured by the Japanese army, and  tortured.  Louis suffered, even more so, at the hand of the commander, they called the Bird.  This man was ruthless, sadistic, and cruel.  For no reason, it seemed like he picked more and more on Louis.

I actually cried, at what he went through.  Was it because he was an Olympic star at one time?  Why was this commander so cruel to him?  Or what?  I don’t know.  Maybe it was because he was a Christian, though you did not see him pray, any more, in the movie, but he had asked God for help.

My thought is this, without giving away any more of the movie, but when he was rescued at the end of the war, and went home, and was reunited with his family.  

God had answered his prayer.  God fulfilled his part of it.  God saved him!  From what happened, and all that he suffered but God saved his soul on that raft!

This is reflected.  On the postscript of the movie.  He served God.  

Now this is just my thought on it, because I haven’t even read the book, or know all that happened, but Louis, began to work out his salvation, with trembling and fear.  

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. (‭Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭12‬ KJV)

  When he came back home to the United States.  From what I understand he had a lot of stress, nightmares, and yes baggage from what he went through.

Yes… God used the Billy Graham ministry to help him.  To bring him closer to God.

But the glory goes to God.

And with no disrespect to the Billy Graham ministry.  I know many are upset that this ministry was not mentioned.  But we need to see God in this.  And nobody else.  You see, I myself, went to one of his revivals and gave my heart to God.  I am grateful for Billy Grahams ministry.  

But I really believe my salvation began when I cried out to the Lord broken, at one point.  Yes, I publicly gave my heart to Christ.  But also in privacy.  There I believe He met me, and saved me, and then later yes I made it public.  And being public, is saying to the world, I am not ashamed that Christ is my savior.    

But it is Christ who I know saved me.  God, daily guides us.  And some ministries do help.  But it is our own responsibility to seek God.  The Lord will save any of us, if we just ask Him.  In this relationship.  It is only by the grace of God, that we are saved.  

I believe that is why Angelina was so touched by this man, to want to make this movie.  She saw what God could do, in someones life.  And nobody else.  I don’t know if she is a Christian or not, but I have the feeling that she is.  I have the feeling she is like many of us, just searching.  But his story touched her, and I believe she seeks God.  She now, has a clearer sense of who God is.  And that is what its all about.  Yes some help us.  I hope to help some.  But I want to be ever so careful to give God only the glory.  

But, one thing I have learned, and to get into deeper, in thought.  We all try to serve God if we are Christians.  But we must be careful not to try and get the glory in some thing, that only belongs to God.  And I am not saying this ministry is doing that.  I am just saying lets give God the glory….

At the end of the movie, and I am sure at the discretion of Angelina, the director, she made sure, that every one could read, that Louis, had kept his part in serving God.  That was the agreement.  That was what Louis asked for, in that raft.

So for it to portray more of what happened, is really from your own perspective.  And really some things are left to the imagination.  But, I believe it did give glory to God. I believe she did a beautiful job in directing it.

And I believe, and pray God bless the Graham ministry.  But I believe, we cannot take our eyes off of the fact, that God saved him on that raft, and not afterwards….

Just my thoughts anyway.  It was a beautiful movie, and I hope whoever sees it, will see Gods plan, and Gods glory that he met Mr. Zamperini on that raft.

That no matter what situation, we are in, God can save us through His son our Lord Jesus Christ.  But my friends, we do have our part.  It starts by repenting.  By confessing Jesus Lord.  By giving our hearts to Christ.  By telling Him, we believe He died for our sins.  Then we grow… In prayer, in reading a good Bible, like my King James, and just trying daily in this lifetime we are given.  To love one another, to forgive.  As he did, by going back to Japan, and seeking closure.

Maybe we can make a difference.  The testimony of this man, does give glory to God.  And his life does reflect he served God.  Thats really what it is all about for any of us, that call our selves Christians.  And to the glory of God.

Blessings, Elena Ramirez

Please sign up for the blog, and also read my testimony.  I pray, that all glory goes to God.  I pray, that you can find something here, that will bring you closer to God.  To instruct, inspire, and motivate you in your own search for God.  And His ways.

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5

I had to make this title strong, so perhaps someone can see this to understand.  New Years resolutions will not work without bringing it to the obedience of Christ.  

So many people make New Year resolutions, but they fail. Because they do not bring it to Christ.

It begins with a thought.  It begins with the imagination.  What you see, or think becomes you.  For as He thinketh in his heart, so is he….Proverbs 23:7.

 What are you thinking?  What are you putting your energy and attention to?  So you need to choose wisely, or you may think or imagine something that is not good, right, or of God. Let alone healthy for you or others.  You cannot let your own mind ponder on that thing that is not right in the sight of God, you must see it as God does, and then obey Him.  

As the first scripture above tells us.  This is why many resolutions do not work on their own, because unless Gods spirit is present, one may be trying to do it on their own, and that may not always prove to be effective.  

I am older now, I am a lot wiser, and the wisdom I share in this, is all to the glory of God, and none else.  Because anything we try to do, in the natural on our own, will not have the same affect as to giving it to God in obedience.

I have experience in this.  I understand, how we can make choices, and do things that are not healthy for us, spiritually and yes physically.  I have done things in my own life, that were lifestyle choices, that hurt me.  Choices, that controlled me for lack of a better word.  Like smoking,  getting high.  Letting the wrong people into my life.  Choices.

And it is always a choice.  I am not going to try and force you to believe me.  This is a choice.  In fact, I follow Christ in this example.  He is a gentleman.  He does not force us.  This is not His way.  He gives us His holy word, an anointed, holy not corrupted word, and that is my King James Bible. And in that Holy word, He tells us who He is, and what He expects.  But it is a choice.  It is even a choice, what Bible one uses.  But experience, and research has shown me this truth.  

And those that reject Him reap the consequences.  And those that find Him, find life eternal.  Not only is there the promise for life after we die, but life now on earth, can change, to a life, that He intended, if we just seek Him.  A life fulfilled.  A life complete, with joy, and peace, and a sense of who He is.  In all aspects, and that nothing is impossible with God.  

But those that reject who He is, do reap, what the devil intended.  And sadly, they do not know when they reject Christ, they are rejecting the only chance to make a “wrong right.”  They look at it intellectually, and not spiritually.  

This is why Christ came for us.  To pay the penalty of our sins.  To stop the works of the enemy.  To give us a new chance.  Yes in our resolutions.  In all aspects of life.  We can live abundantly.  But we have to begin by seeing we are sinners, and repent, and make the choice to bring it to the obedience of Christ.  We have to see, we must not give place to the enemy, but we must submit to God.  This is also scriptural.  

I was blind spiritually at one time.  This is where I started with my own self-destructive ways, that were controlling me.  And anything can control you if you let it.  From eating, to smoking, getting high, sexual active etc.  This is the way of the world.  

And the world, if you see does not offer a way to control these things, effectively.  Nor does it condemn immorality. If anything, it promotes these things.  You see it on television, in movies and yes even acceptance, of things that are perverted.  More and more, the world, has adapted these life style choices, ideologies, and ways of thinking, that go against God.  And they call that normal.  

But God is not mocked, and we do reap what we sow.  Galatians 6:7.  And there is no peace saith my God to the wicked.  Isaiah 57:21.  And I see so many people rejecting God, and choosing lifestyles, that are against who God is.  If you reject God it is your choice, and you have no one to blame but yourself.  

No, if you really want a change, and you want to make it work for you.  You do have to give it all to God.  You have to obey God, you have to take His commandments to heart, His ways, His principles, to heart, and you have to want to live a clean good life.  

And let us get one thing straight.  Just because you gave your heart, to Christ one time does not mean, that its a done, deal.  No, you have to want to grow.  And many people do not grow, because they think they are fine, the way they are.  

You have to work out your Salvation, in fear of God, and with trembling.  This is also scriptural.  Look up these words in a King James Bible.  This is the scripture reference.  Philippians 2:12

Treating your salvation as precious.  Something to honor, and protect.  Because you do not want to be deceived by the devil.  Nor lose your salvation, by having your name “blotted” out of the lambs book of life.  

And maybe to some extent you are a good person.  But, by denying who Christ is, in your own life, or just living day to day, is not living, that is barely existing, when you could thrive.  

No true living is when you search for God daily, with all your being.  Recognizing the devil, comes to kill, steal and destroy, so you watch your own self.  Christ told us this difference, but Christ came to give us life abundantly. Read again John 10:10, as the reference KJV.

You choose Christ’s ways.  Repenting, daily, is something I believe in.  It cleanses the soul, and gets you on the right path.  

And you disciple yourself.  Which is derived from “disciplining” yourself in Christ.  When you love the Lord, truly Love Him, you know your body is the temple of the living God.  So no, you do not want to hurt that temple, or others, and whatever you are doing that is making you “self-destruct” you take to the obedience of Christ.  You obey the command ment first to love God with all your heart, and then your neighbor as yourself.  

You stop the whining, the complaining, and the pity party, that does not do you or anybody else any good, and you take it to the obedience of Christ.  You change.  There are so many pitfalls, we can fall into, if we do not see the signs.  We walk down the road of life.  And we do not always see what is up ahead.  But if you walk with Christ, He does give you signs, and those signs may say, don’t walk that path.  

I saw those signs myself in my life.  I made some terrible choices, that were not only sin, in Gods eyes, but they were causing me to go down a road of destruction.  I had to stop.  I had to repent.  I had to recognize the son of God, who came to set me free.  

And when I did, I began the most beautiful relationship I have ever had.  No one can take the place of who Christ is to me.  I will never, ever go back to those ways, those habits, because I would lose this relationship. Christ is the great Shepherd.  He will guide you, He does me.   

This is why, when I talk to people, and they get it confused with religion, I explain the difference.  Rules, traditions, rituals, made by men, and groups, will never, ever get the results that I can have with Christ.  In relationship.  They cannot.  In fact, religion from the choice, I told you, is imposing, rude, and harsh.  

They are not gracious, compassionate, or understanding, as to what Christ can do.  So when I have a problem I go to God, and if you need to talk to someone, yes talk to someone, but talk to someone who understands the ways of God, for counsel.   

I know from the word of God, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Paraphrasing Phillipians 4:13.  I can.  

I don’t give up, even where I am now, in my older years.  Every day, I reach for the goal of who I can be in Christ.  And some things do take time.  

But its not up for debate.  I know that knowing Christ has changed my life.  My choices.  And even now, I have a private resolution, I bring to the obedience of Christ, because I want to grow, and be the best I can be in Him.  For next year….

So if you are really serious, about making a resolution, and making it work.  Take it to the obedience of Christ my friend.  Don’t compromise who you are.  Don’t doubt that you can do it.  Don’t be afraid, that it is too late.  It’s never too late, when we open our eyes, and give it totally to the obedience of Christ.  Speak it, there is power in your words, speak who you are in Christ.  Faith pleases God.  

Yes we do reap what we sow.  This is a principle, that the world calls karma.  But don’t look at it that way.  Don’t look at it as the world sees it.  Look at it the way Christ can to make the corrections for you.  Yes, He corrects those He loves.  Let Him correct you.  Give it to Christ.  

Let Him turn those consequences, into faith, into hope, that 2015 can be a new year for you, with a difference.  Plead the blood of Jesus, and know Christ came to set you free, and yes free indeed.  

You can do it.  You can meet your goal.  I want to inspire you, to see yourself and who you can be in Christ.  Healed.  Is that a goal?  That can be physically or spiritually.  Well by His stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5.  

You can be stronger, wiser, and more at peace, if you just take it to the obedience of Christ.  He will show you the way.  He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  He will make a way.  To meet your resolutions my friend.  Have hope, don’t give up.  

In the miracle of who Christ is.  This is why we have the Christmas spirit. A gift in the “presence” of our Lord, and savior.  This is a present.  This thought of taking it to the obedience of Christ.  Can meet that new year resolution.  This new year can be yours, in Christ.  

Happy New Year, with blessings and love,

A WORD ABOUT CHANGE GOD DOES NOT CHANGE, AREN’T WE SUPPOSED TO CHANGE? By Elena Ramirez


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe word I have today, is about change.

Malachi 3:6 says…..I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT…

So it gives to reason, that God does not change, but we change, in the Lord.

We see the world changing, we see our country changing, we see things that meant for value and honor changing, and what do we do? Do we go with the flow of change? In some things yes. Technology, has advanced.

Nonetheless, seriously, when I was growing up, a computer, who heard of that? But yet, we learn, we grow, we use what we have. But there are some things, that should not change, and that is Gods Holy word.

The world, wants an easy way to read Gods word, and so they change it. But did we forget, God says, FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT?  He is not asking a question, He knows who He is.  But do we know who we are in Him?   How can we know….if we are doing it our way?

He did not change His word, in fact, the King James Bible has been established, for 400 years. No copy rights, and no changes, in fact, there are so many scriptures there, that say, do not change it. Do not add, do not delete….and yet we see so many of these Bible versions, actually have scriptures missing.

Not complete, not whole. What about the anointing, the holiness? Look we are called to be in this world but not a part of it. There are some things we should not change to, just because the world does.

Just food for thought here, but ponder on this…..If God does not change, aren’t we supposed to change to His way? And how can we do it, if we are reading word, that is no longer holy because men have put their hands to it?

How can we change, if we used something that has been changed. With word that is missing?

Hmmmmmm…..Scripture food for thought, this morning.

Love and blessings, in Christ…..

Father, I pray, with such a strong sense of urgency, that people need to know your ways, your truth, and that they have to see the enemy is deceiving them.  Change their hearts, as I plead the blood of Jesus, to know true word, holy word, anointed word, word that you sent that has power.  Lord this is what your word says….HE SENT HIS WORD AND HEALED THEM AND DELIVERED THEM FROM THEIR DESTRUCTION.  PSALM 107:20  In Jesus name, Amen.  

Just a tidbit here about my new book.  HOW TO HAVE FAITH, MY SECRET PRINCIPLES OF FAITH WITH A TRUE AND LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.  It is in the process of getting published right now, but check out the link, that gives more information about it.  I am not sure how much I am charging for the book, due to prices with publishers etc.  But, as soon, as I know, I will quote that for you.  Please remember this page, and the link is on the top of this blog as well for reference.  Blessings…..

GETTING OUT OF THE BOX ~ THINKING WITH CHRIST!


Does God love us, even though we do not know him?  Or we may know him, but we keep missing the mark?

Yes we know John 3:16.  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Yes, God loves us the way we are.  But, because of who He is, He knows, we can have potential, that far exceeds our own expectations.

Today, I want to, tap into that source, of who He is.  With love, with His word, with prayer, and praise.  I know His word is the key.  I want to expect, great blessings, but more then anything, I want to see my faith, reaching those new heights.  To speak to my mountains.  To change, if I am doing anything wrong.

I do not want to stay the way I am, I want to reach others for Christ.  And more then anything, I want to see my life fulfilled, because of who He is.  I want to grow every day. Never content, with who I am, but because of who He is in me.

I have such a strong sense, a determination today, as I write this.  That I can only attribute it, to the Holy Spirit, speaking to me, prompting me, motivating me…..I feel so different.  Its that feeling, that “I know, that I know.”  And it just gives me that “unction to function!”

Today, I am content, I am thankful, grateful.  For each and everyone of my blessings, that God has provided.  Not by me, not even my husband, or my own family, but by God. And I am so grateful for my family.  They bring me so much.  But this glory goes to God.  For He, is life, and life is not life without Him.  God, my Father, my Lord, who sustains me. By His mercy, and grace.

But I sense, I am not reaching my full potential, so I am stirring up, my spirit, I am stirring up your spirit, and anybody else who may read this, to know, there is a way!  Christ, is that way, the truth, and life.

I am not content in the sense, that I am just happy, to let life go by me.  Without giving it my all, and all.  Sometimes, we can become complacent, and you know, it is good to rest at the feet of the Lord, and not get into spiritual battles, but when one has opportunity, to do great things for God, for others, for themselves, then they should tap into that.  And take a risk!  Take a chance.  Get out of your comfort zone, and explore the options.

Christ is holding your hand, and will guide you.  I know some pretty talented, people…..(everybody I know)  For you see, you each possess, a gift, a calling, a special talent, or attribute, that you excel at.  No one else, can do what you do, for it is your unique blessing, God has given you.  But many just let it coast for them.

I refuse to do that, any more.  Any chance, I get to share the good news of Jesus Christ, especially, here in my writing, I am going to be first in line.  I am going to run up there, and wait, for my chance.  Why? Because of who Christ is. Because of what He has done for me!

Many say, that once you reach success, one may slow down, or get lazy in trying.  I would hope that would not be, the case for me.  I want to get past the obstacles.  I want to be a soul winner, in a big way.

It would not matter if I reached success. From the perspective of the world.  I do want success, but because of who I am in Christ.  For, the goal, the objective, always, as Christians, is to live a life worthy of Christs sacrifice.  It means, being an example of love.  To help others, reach Salvation, for their souls, to spare them from hell.  And to bring glory and honor and praise to God, for his plan.

So you see, there are so many souls who really do not know Christ.  So it is our responsibility in this life, to serve God, and others in this. I can only commit, that what I do in my writing, praying God will guide me, to reach others for His Kingdom.  Even if it is just one soul, who may read this at a time.  Angels rejoice, when one sinner, accepts Christ, and ensures their salvation. Luke 15:10.  So even if it is one soul at a time.  I want to make a difference.

So, I am thinking out of the box.  I am thinking past, what others may think of me, or by those who try to stop me.  By reaching out, and discouraging me, or speaking against me.

Have you ever heard of the theory of the crabs in the box, on the sand, and every time, one tried to get out, another crab would try and block it, or stop it?  Well, I have known some crabby people in my life. I have known people, who could have stepped, up, and try to help me, but they let the opportunity fail.  And fall.

They knew I was in ministry.  Some knew, (not all) but some knew, I was a soul winner, and they hurt me.  Some again…(not all).  But those that did….They knew, I had a good word.  They knew I was a soul-winner.  They knew, I was trying to get my book out in the market, when I self-published it.  ( A Book Of Remembrance~ 365 Days to a Personal Relationship with God~ A journal)  They knew, I was looking for a publisher, and they had connections.  They knew, I could speak publicly, and yet denied me access to their churches.  To speak to their women, to their groups.

I have seen some jealous people, who do not try to help, others, because they see the inadequacies of themselves.  Or they just hated me.  (see my post “Have you Been Hurt by Religous people, you thought, were brothers and sisters in Christ.)

They knew….and all I can say, is I forgive them.  And God bless and help them.  I believed, even though, they knew, it was not my time.  I knew I had to grow some more too.  I knew, I had to let God totally change me, and refine me.  It is a daily process, of commitment.  God knows, so even though, I say, “they knew and did not Help me.”

GOD KNEW…..I know, God had to make changes.  So I am at peace with it.  Maybe I am ready now, I don’t know.  I do know this.  There is a God, and He has His ways.  He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  And I know it more, then I ever knew it.

But some knew….and they did not help. And I have to express that, maybe even to purge it.  But it is o.k. I am at peace with it, because I want God to get the glory, and honor for it.  And God has the right people, with the right heart, for Him, and the vision God has given to each of us, to fulfill it. For the souls, we are to reach His Kingdom.

It will be done.  Because I am getting out of my box of thinking, with God.

Dear one, I know I am not perfect.  I am not always tactful, I try, but sometimes, I do make mistakes.  I can be blunt.  It can offend.  I can come on very strong.  But, you know what, if I am strong, I am strong because of Christ.  If I am blunt, it is because I know the truth.  If I err, I pray, I err on the side of love.

I never, want to hold any one back.  And if I can help someone, in the future, when, I become successful in the sense, that I can share blessings….I can share money, or favor, or opportunity, I will.  Because I know, what it is like, to need help, and people deny you.  And I don’t want to be that person, who holds anybody back, in their gifts and callings.  I know what it feels like to crave, to need help, and be ignored.  To be rejected…..With all my faults, I pray, never to put someone down, and not reach out, and give a helping hand.  At least to show them the Lord, to give them hope.  Giving love….Not even a hand out, but dignity, to give a helping hand.  Every one needs help. I don’t care who you are.  We all need God, and we need each other.

For I have learned, all of this, but I am getting out of my box of despair, even today.  I am getting out of that box, of negative thinking.  I am getting out of that box, that holds me, and others back.  I am getting out of my box with thinking, its not possible.  It is possible.  With God all things are possible.  Luke 1:37. I am getting out of my box with Christ.

I find it ironic, that my writings are entitled:  “Just My Thoughts” and yes, they are my thoughts, but they have come from experience, from life, from the hard knocks, from loneliness, desperation, sickness, and by healing, and by the mind of Christ, who comforted me, spoke to me, loved me even in my sins, and He has prompted me.  My thoughts, come from Him, and His love, and I will never ever deny, or be so proudful, to think it is just me.  Its God almighty!

So, I am getting out of my box.

And not when I am dead, and resurrected, but now with Him.  LOL. He promised, life, and life abundantly, and I am going to live my life in Christ, past my expectations, and tap into who He is.  Seriously!

How about you?  Are you ready to get out of the box, out of your comfort zone, with Christ?  All things are possible with him.

Today, is a gift, God has given us, not tomorrow, because no one, can claim tomorrow.  Or yesterday, for it is the past.  But the presence now of Christ, is the time, in His presence, and it is a “present.” I am opening the box today, and receiving the gift, Christ has for me today.

I am getting out of my box of own limited thinking with Christ.  The secret to thinking with Christ, is from the word of God.  Just thought, I would express that, again, to give you the key…..

Just my thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, and Praise you, and worship you in spirit, and truth.  You know my heart, and I pray worthy to do great things, as I think out of my own confinement.  As I think out of just what I see.  Or feel.  I claim the mind of Christ, for new awareness, of the possibilities, because of Christ.  I bind anything, that is not of you.  I release the blessings, and the open doors, from heaven to do your work.  To do your will, to think out of my box.  To be effective.  I bind your enemy, by the blood of Jesus, and claim a hedge of protection for me, my loved ones, and for your servants.  Lord, I am believing for great things to be done, in your name.  For your glory, for your honor, and for your praise.  In Jesus name.  Let the lost be saved, by my works, that you give me.  That truly come from your Kingdom.  Inspire your people, the lost, by my works.  So that many can come to your throne.  To know love.  For you are love.  Our Lord Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice, that makes this all possible.  Amen

NOTE:  Today, as I post this, it is the anniversary of my Fathers death, many, many years ago.  And it just made me realize, my dad, would want me to be positive, to think outside of the box, to trust God.  After all, he prayed for me.  To be born.  Long story, short, mom, was not able to have children.  Dad prayed for me, and well, I have come full circle in prayer….so wow, this is a milestone, in who I am in Christ, to declare this.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN HURT BY RELIGIOUS PEOPLE YOU THOUGHT WERE BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST?


I have.  I have been hurt by religious people, that I thought, were brothers and sisters in Christ.

You know, I think, that is the most grievous sense of betrayal, one can receive, when they are hurt by people, they loved, in the body of Christ.

I had been in a place of authority, where I served God, and served others, in prayer.

I could give the details, but I won’t because I do not want to hurt the people that hurt me.  Or the church, I was affiliated with, the pastors….

But, it hurt me so much, because for a long while I did not understand it.  Later, here, and there, I picked up pieces, of this, and that, and I understood.  But it was still a lie from the devil.

And then I learned the meaning of the scripture, of Revelation 12:10:

AND I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAYING IN HEAVEN, NOW IS COME SALVATION AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST: FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHERN IS CAST DOWN WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT.

For what had been said about me was a lie from the devil.  The accuser of the brethern, the devil, stopped me where I was serving God.  And I was accused, and I was slandered, and I was spoken of by false witnesses.  And it hurt me.  In fact, when I was fired, which I was, I came home, and cried, and threw up.  It hurt me that bad.  Because I loved them.  I loved, what I did for Christ, and I knew, somehow, the devil, had made people, believe a lie.

I even had a couple, tell me they “marked” me, like by some examples of the Bible.  And when I see some religious groups, who do things like that I cringe.  Because no one has the right to judge.  Not like that.

And I know, their are some Judas and Jezebel,type people, and spirits, and you do not want them in your groups, or churches.  But, I am a friend to Christ.  I was serving, I was winning souls.  So I knew, the devil wanted me out of there.  But even in that, my “method” of saving souls was questioned.

Religion….it scares me.  I have seen people, in great numbers, coming together, to hurt someone……..Shunning, rejecting, snubbing and making someone an outcast.  I know what it meant and felt like, to get the “cold shoulder.”  All of sudden people, who would run to embrace me, now ran from me.  An outcast.  That outcast was me.  So, I know. And it was not my imagination.

Consequently, after some time, some bridges were mended. By some.  And I did forgive, for that is what Christ has taught us, but true reinforcement, was never reinstated, nor, was any explanation, given to me, counsel, or by that, any apologies.  Though, I did forgive.

And even here, I say “God bless them.  Lord, help them, to see, the damage they are doing.  Let them see, the error of this, that they are being used by the devil.  Lord, open their eyes.  To truth, and love, not lies, let them, see Lord.”  I pray, for souls, who come in the name of the Lord, but they really do not display the fruit of love, or the Holy spirit.  People make mistakes.  So, I want to be able to release them, in love.  Even though, it was the greatest hurt, I ever felt.

I know, God can restore.  And I know, God can redeem the time.  So I am not bitter.  What the devil intended, for evil, I know, even this, God can turn for the good.  Maybe even for you.

Now, why God is bringing it up to me now, only He knows.  But I am an open book, for Him, to use, perhaps, for someone, who is going through, what I went through, or could also be in a position to hurt someone.  In the body of Christ.  I don’t know.  I do know, that it hurt me so bad, so deeply, that I am very reserved.  I do not serve, in any church any more.  Or other organizations, or ministries.

And in fact, I do not have a place, that I call a church home.  We had left, but then returned.  After a short amount of time, after the shock, and, we had stayed at the church, for a long while, so I could just prove, that I would not be run out, nor would I give into being a victim.  I held onto the only dignity I had, the truth.  But after a while, I just felt the Lord telling me, to move on, so we did, as a family.  And it so affected all of us in my family.  They were hurt by it too….

We, go to different churches, and I have learned to be reserved.  Because of religious people, who have hurt me.  They were hard, stoic, judgmental, and with the attitude, that they were better, than others with their self-righteous judgements.

I go worship, and come back home.  Because the word of God says, do not forsake the assembling of yourselves.  But, I do not get involved, for the most part.  Unless, considered, and asked.  I guess, I am afraid, and I do not trust people.  Now I have to interject, here, because I know the word of God says, fear is a sin.  Is it fear of people I don’t know.  I don’t want to sin, I want to walk in love.  But, I am extremely cautious.  Is that o.k.?  Anyway, I so want to be used by God, and I will have to learn to trust again.  But, I do not now….

Unless, they prove themselves, to love me.  Or more then anything, they prove themselves, by the scripture, by the word of God, that Christ taught, to love one another.  To not judge.  I test the spirits.  I am called to do that.  By the word of God.  And I encourage you to do the same.  To see the fruit.  I may not tell them I am testing them.  But I do.

By love, by compassion, by kindness, by the word of God.  And if they express it.  Yes, I would be willing, to be more inclined, to be more friendly.

For, I may love them, and quietly pray for them, and I will be cordial, courteous, kind, and yes, I would serve, if asked.  But, seldom, have I been asked.  But I am, in my own comfort zone, to serve here, in my writing etc.  So, I do not get involved, with others.  This is my outlet.  This is my ministry, in Christ.

Now, I need to say something, because I don’t want to hurt anybody who may read this, and I may have met them, at recent churches I have attended.  There have been places, where I was embraced by love.  By pastors, by the congregation.  But for whatever reason, a prompting from God, we left.  We left the church.  But it had nothing to do with the people, or doctrine, or even the past pains.  Things happen, peoples schedules change too.  Our schedules, have changed from time to time.

So, I guess, I am right now, I am a drifter for the Lord…..  I want to serve God, as an inspirational speaker, and in my writing.  But the truth of the matter, is, we have not found a church, where, I am comfortable, or where I serve.  Or where, I will get involved.  It did hurt that bad.

I do serve God, because I have to, in my own ministry, and in my writing, but I don’t hold back.  I have to, release truth.  Because when the Holy Spirit, gives me a word, I have to release it, and write it.  But, I am not paid for it, and I do this for free. I do not ask anybody for anything.  God meets my needs.  By my husband.  I do this, I write for the Lord, because the sacrifice of Christ was too great.  I have to release any word, God gives me.  And I will be obedient to God.  I know His voice.  It is always love.

Maybe someday, I will find a church home, and I will feel at home, and I will feel the love, and I will stay.  But right now, and it has been more then, ten years, since this happened, at least, but I will just wait on the Lord.  I choose to love,  and I pray, to be used by God.  But if they did, what they did to Jesus, it can happen.  Remember, the Pharisees, and their “religious” spirits.

Just be careful out there, and walk in love, love all, give people the  benefit of the doubt.  Pray, if you hear a bad report about somebody.  Maybe even talk to the person.  But don’t treat them like dirt.  Don’t reject them, and expect fruit.  Don’t listen to the devil.  Know, the devil is a liar, and He will always try to make someone look bad.  Especially, if they serve God.  To whom it may concern.  If you are in authority, or even if you just warm the pews.  Let the love of Christ, be your guide.

And as I conclude, I will say this, I knew this was going to happen, the Lord revealed something to me that day, as I was fired, and I knew, something was going to happen, that would stop, me, from being used, in a place, where I was saving souls.

I just know this, what the enemy intended for evil, God will turn for good, for my good, and for the good of others.  I will go on, to do what Christ has called me to do.  In a great and mighty way.  The gates, of hell will not prevail against me.  For my Lord, will build His church, in me, and others.

I just want to add, if you are looking for a church, look for a place, where love is.  Be careful with “cliquish” people.  Who really are in church, for social reasons only.  Go to a church, where the word of God is taught.  Look for a place, where all people go, and the Pastor encourages love.  Not just once in a while, but always….That he encourages, all types of people, to join, and to be united, by all races, ethnicities etc.  Look for love, and walk in love.

Like Christ taught us….

Just my thoughts, with love,

Elena Ramirez

Father, I really do not understand, why you want me to write this.  After all this time, but I know, your voice, and I know, I must obey.  Your reasons, are not always ours, though, I do, want to be in unity with you, in this.  Will it help heal me more?  I don’t know.  I thought, I had, by forgiving.  I do not want to bring any condemnation.  But there is always conviction.  If someone reads this, and they were a part of it, they will know.  But maybe their is a greater  reason, as you always do things in a great way.  Father, even here, I will say, I forgive.  I still feel the hurt, but I forgive, as tears just naturally flow from me.  No wonder though, sometimes, the church gets a bad rap, or because people, are afraid to serve, because the devil, does come to kill, steal, and destroy.  And your work.  And the work that others, are doing in your name.  Lord, religion does scare me.  Maybe someday, you will guide me to a home church, and I will feel the love.  Till then, I am happy, even just to write here, and to share a good word….from your Kingdom.  From your word.  Lord, thank you, for comforting me, in this time, for teaching me, so much.  Thank you for soothing my heart in this.  May it help others.  And Lord, stop others from doing this.  By the blood of Jesus.  I plead it around me, and your true worshippers, In Jesus name.  Amen

WHEREFORE BEHOLD I SEND UNTO YOU PROPHETS, AND WISE MEN, AND SCRIBES:  AND SOME OF THEM YE SHALL KILL AND CRUCIFY: AND SOME OF THEM SHALL YE SCOURGE IN YOUR SYNAGOGUES, AND PERSECUTE THEM FROM CITY TO CITY.  MATTHEW 23:34

ARE YOU CONSISTENT IN YOUR LOVE WALK OR CASTING STONES?


I want to build a foundation, as I write “Just My Thoughts.”  So, with that thought in mind…we know, Jesus Christ is the cornerstone, of our faith.

Everything, we are, in him, is built on the foundation of who He is.  And as we grow, we grow in all of His attributes, personality, authority, and beauty, of who He is.

First and foremost, Jesus is love.  And if we are truly, Christians, love, will be evident in who we are in him.

God is love, and so we need to be completely, submitted to that love. I John 4:7-8 Beloved let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God.  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

We must be aware, of our actions, our fruit, the appearance, of what is seen by God, and others.  So we must constantly, be working on that love, and letting Christ rule, as the foundation.

Yesterday, I went to church, and there was a guest speaker there.  And this gentleman, gave basically a message, about being “consistent” in whatever you do for God.  To keep practicing, and doing whatever it is that you do.  He gave an example of Billy Graham.  And how Billy Grahams Sunday school teacher taught him, and inspired him.  And well, the rest is history, Billy Graham is one of the most beloved, well respected, and admirable, people of God, who has made an affect for the Kingdom of God.  He is a soul winner.

And this message so inspired me.  Because I want to be a soul winner.  I want to do great things for God.  And I want God to get glory in what I do, so I know, I need to be consistent, in many things.

But as I prayed, last night, I prayed, a small prayer, Lord, just help me to be “consistent.”  And the first thing, I felt the Lord speak to me this morning, is that I need to be consistent, in my love walk.  Walking in love with others.  Walking in love….

You see, this is a hard thing for me, on my own, in the natural.  Because I did not have love growing up.  Sure, I am sure my mom loved me.  But I did not have a “loving” family foundation.  Her and my father were divorced.  And when I grew up, I grew up fighting.  Fighting to survive, and sometimes just fighting.  Instigating, a fight.  A lot of times fighting with my mom.  So, for the most part, and maybe even some of my school friends remember this about me, I was in a lot of fights.  Not able to get along with people.  Sometimes, just defending myself, because of the environment, but it was so very prevalent.  Even in the business world.

So when I became a Christian, God became working on that with me.  I can successfully say, even after almost 25 years of marriage, and love, between me and my husband, and son, I walk the walk of love.  But God is the foundation of our marriage.  We married in holiness.  We made a covenant, that will not be broken, until death do us part.  God, our Lord, Jesus is the cornerstone, of our marriage.

So, I have learned, not to cast stones.  Not to bring up things, that hurt, or push peoples buttons, or to start a fight….If someone gets me angry, and I do get angry sometimes, but what I learned is, to let Christ be the spirit, that rules my heart.   I have learned to be consistent, in this love, no matter what…..

I just want to encourage you.  Being consistent, in love, should be in the forefront of our minds, souls, and spirit.  It does not come by osmosis.  But by Christ.  By letting Christ and his Holy spirit, guide us, to do and think all in love.  To learn, to walk away from an argument, or confrontation, and let love rule.  To let love, cover a multitude of sins.  For love never fails.  To agree, to even disagree in love.  To not argue, about doctrine, or the ways of the law, God, or whatever, because love, needs to be prevalent. To not pound anything anything in anybody, but to let love….Let God.

I know, this is something, I have to work at, but you know, what…?  I want to be consistent in this.  I want to be an expert, at love.  I want to do everything, that pleases my Lord, because of his great sacrifice.  The other day, I wrote, briefly, that when someone, displeases me, or angers me, or the devil is trying to get me to be resentful, I remember, what Christ did for me, and that he forgave me.  If he forgave me, I can forgive that person too.  Because he died for that person too.  And more then anything, He loves that person.

With a thought like that, I cannot throw stones.  I must continue on my walk with Christ in love.  I must be consistent, in love…

Just my thoughts, in love….

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Honor and Hope

Father, I praise you, and ask for guidance, and wisdom, and more then anything love.  Love to walk in life, with you and with others.  Love, that will not cast stones.  But love, that will remind me, and others, that you my Christ, are my Lord, and savior.  To walk away from disagreements, to not stir up strife, to not be an instigator, to know the difference, between love, and the fiery darts, the enemy tries to throw at me, to get out of my love walk.  Father, pour your love in my spirit, by your word, your compassion, your mercy, and all that is holy, that reminds me, of how great your love is.  Thank you Lord, for your love, that surpasses all of my understanding, but that is prevalent in my heart.  For you love, me, with a love, I cannot put into words, but all I can say, is thank you, and I want to show and share this love, that you give.  In my own way, giving back what you have given me.  Love.  In Jesus name.  Amen
