GOD WILL KEEP HIS PROMISES BUT PEOPLE DO NOT ALWAYS KEEP THEM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3085 2FOR ALL THE PROMISES OF GOD IN HIM ARE YEA, AND IN HIM, AMEN, UNTO THE GLORY OF GOD BY US.  

II CORINTHIANS 1:20  KJV.  

I do praise God and give Him glory, for His promises He keeps.  I rely on them.  I know in this world, people will let us down.

This photo, are remembrances of promises made, in friendship, with a sister in Christ.

They are cards, and promises, she sent through out the years.  I have so many of them.  I have kept them through the years.  Because they blessed me, and they promised friendship.

I don’t have the heart to toss them.  But I cannot bear to keep looking at them. Either.

Our friendship dissolved, a few months ago.  And I wonder, what poisoned her heart, so very much?  Toward me, that she won’t have anything to do with me.  I have talked about it, in my other blogs, and I don’t mean to rehash it here.

But I don’t understand, how someone, could call me a sister, a friend, pray with me, laugh with me, and be a confidant, and then just say, “Oh it was just for a season.”  

Yes, there was offenses.

Please note:  Two days after I wrote the post.  This following indented part is now being revised and edited.  I did list some of the offenses here, because I was just venting.  I think it still wounds me, but I won’t be healed if I keep talking about it.  

And, you know, God knows, I love the lady still as a friend, even though, she and I no longer communicate.  I wish her well.  I pray God bless her. See I want to come from a place, where I am walking in love, and I had always committed, to her, that a friend, loves at all times, so I am aware of the scripture that says, love covers a multitude of sins.  So, I am removing the offenses from this post.    

But it has taught me, and it taught me harshly, I will never trust people again.  Not like that.  People will not always keep their promises.  This is proof here.

But more then ever, I do trust God and His promises.  You see, He will never leave you or me, or forsake us.  He has proven it.  He has done so very much for me, by all of His promises.

As long as we trust Him.  And His promises.

Friend, I don’t know you, but I implore you trust Gods promises.  Maybe you are angry with God, but don’t be.  He loves you, and can change things. I know, He has for me, my whole life.

Trust His promises.  Claim them.   Read them over and over, speak them, share them, proclaim them…..Let them get into your heart, your soul, your mind, your spirit.  Let His promises get into all of you.

And then just obey, to receive His promises.  Seek Him first, His Kingdom, and His righteousness.  And all those other “promises”  will be added.

His promises are real, and they are tangible.

He has been so loving and kind to me.  And my King James Bible, reminds me of His promises.  Because it is Holy, not corrupted by men, who broke their promise to even not to change it.

Because it is a commandment not to change His word.  Read Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19, and there are other scriptures that attest to this.  To His promise to those who disobey Him in this.

Thats worthy of so much praise, and even though, I have learned all of this as a valuable lesson in life, it has brought me closer to God.

I praise God, and thank Him, for everything….

Even this, He knows.  And I just put it all in His hands.

Love is my guide, as I praise Him.  I choose to continue, and walk on.  In obedience to God. Staying in the light. Knowing darkness, being unforgiving, hating, separates us from God.

Let us praise God for His promises.

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

WHEN YOU SEE A FRIEND GO TO THE DARK SIDE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3886There are signs, there are signals, one might see, if they have a friend, that goes to the dark side.

And you grieve for them, because you love them.  But you cannot do anything.  Because God gives us a choice.  Its always a choice.

But when someone, purposely has pride, will not be humble, will not forgive, will not communicate, will believe a lie, and actually fight you, to maintain all that, hate.  

Well….all you can do is walk away.  When someone, will bring up offenses, over and over again, that is not forgiving.  

See, the enemy, has deceived them.  And when any of us, purposely disobey God in matters of forgiveness, well, thats giving place to the enemy.  Thats going to the dark side.  

See, our words do matter.  When one makes a commitment, to love God, and love one another, one takes it to heart.  You don’t just say it when its convenient, or when its going good.  But through all times.  

But I was not the one who made the choice to close the case but her.  And, to depart from that, is a choice, and its a choice, that brings darkness.  God sees.  

Scripture says, a friend, loves at all times, not when its convenient.  Or when, everything is alright.  Love, does love through, the disagreements, the silence, and even, the hate.  

See, I know, I love someone, someone, I called a sister, a friend, who for so much showed friendship and loyalty, to me, but when it came down to it, she was not accountable, to her own behavior.  I still love this person, but I see, she has stepped into the darkness.  And now I just grieve for her.  

Because now she is just someone, who wants nothing to do with me, ever again.  And I respect that.  It does hurt, but I am grateful, I have my armor on, and I will quench those fiery darts from the enemy, that he uses, from my frien-enemy to throw at me.  

I am careful, always, to offer forgiveness, because I know myself, that if we are not pleasing God in this, He will not forgive us.  And the record shows I did. But she rejected it.  

I may have made mistakes, in fact, I know I did, in friendship with this person, I am thinking about.  But the grace was not there for me.  And I kept seeing it, and yet I offered grace, but she would not.  She offered me the silent treatment, closed the case, and let obscenities be spoken about me.  That is not love.

So, when you don’t see grace, that is a signal, that this person, has their blinders on.  Sad thing is, if you keep your blinders on, and do not obey God,  You can miss it.  And walk right into the enemies camp, of darkness.  And he only comes to kill, steal and destroy.  Even friendships, based on prayer, and God.  Especially those kind, and that was the kind of friendship we had, at one time.  

Sad thing is though, when you see other friends, contribute to that, and take sides, well they have gone to the dark side with that person.  I REBUKE THAT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.  I MARK THAT, AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM EITHER. 

We pray for people, but we also know, its a choice.  You want to pull them out of the fiery flames, but when people silence you, want nothing to do with you.

 You go, on, with Christ.  Christ said, as His disciples, we were to love one another.  He said, that we were to forgive.  He said, that love would show we were His disciples.  I have tried, but I am done.  

I will try and not write about this person, ever again, concerning this person.  Because this person, did not care, that she wounded me.  But this is how I heal.  And I have nothing further to say, you see, I tried. And I know it.

I have so many cards from this person, so many reminders, of a commitment, that she just forgot about.  So I may do some purging, of gifts, and reminders. 

Make sure you have done all you can in love, and forgiveness, and let the record reflect that.  Because there is one.  And God sees.  

If you can relate to my friend, I  implore you to repent to God.  I don’t expect an apology at this point, from her, but if I can warn someone, don’t go to the dark side.  

BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER.  JOHN 13:35  KJV.  

Blessings, and love,

WHEN PEOPLE CROSS YOUR BOUNDARIES YOU MAY NEED TO BE CRUEL TO BE KIND FOR SELF-RESPECT ~ By Christian Author….


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWHEN PEOPLE CROSS YOUR BOUNDARIES YOU MAY NEED TO BE CRUEL TO BE KIND FOR SELF-RESPECT ~

By Christian Author….Elena Ramirez 

Sometimes you have to see there are boundaries no one should ever cross in respect. And sometimes you do have to be cruel to be kind, especially when you love people. You say enough is enough.

You realize if you don’t, you will lose your own self respect. And that’s a curse, because you don’t see, you are a child of the King. Sometimes we have to realize who we are in Christ, and what Christ did for us, on that cross, cleanses us.  By His grace.  

We are the head, and not the tail!  

AND THE LORD SHALL MAKE THEE THE HEAD, AND NOT THE TAIL:  AND THOU SHALT BE ABOVE ONLY, AND THOU SHALT NOT BE BENEATH:  IF THOU HEARKEN UNTO THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY, TO OBSEVE AND TO DO THEM.  DEUTERONOMY 28:13.  KJV.  

And nobody should ever go past the boundaries of respect. EVER!  

It is sad, but sometimes, people mistake a good nature, a kindness, as weakness, and they challenge that.  They cross boundaries.  But it is a strength to be kind, and nice, but there are those boundaries, where you say no more.  

You then become cruel to be kind. You stand up for yourself, and what is right, in the sight of God.  With courage.  You call it for what it is, with truth.  Because the truth sets us all free. 

This is how it is I believe with God.  He is extending grace to all of us.  But there will be a time, when hell will be paid, if we do not see His ways.  And repent, because we reap what we sow.  And His wrath will be revealed.  

Do you see why I have fear of God?  Because I do.  

But, I know the difference, with people.  It’s not a matter of pride, it’s a matter of dignity. And when someone realizes they crossed that boundary and is accountable they grow! Apologies. Respect go hand in hand.  Gods grace is not silent.  

It seems, I meet a lot of people who try to cross my boundaries, with disrespect.  Well I rebuke that as well, I am breaking this cycle by sadly walking away.  By being mean to be kind.  

It seems people cross that boundary.  In matters of my faith, in matters of friendship, in matters of privacy, and even in matters of common courtesy.  

I guess, I have just come from a place, where I say enough is enough.  Where I may even sound, or seem hurtful myself, and I have come out swinging.  And my nature as a warrior, is contributed by that, because I did have to fight to survive.   Growing up.  

Yet, I cannot let someone steal my peace, so I walk away.  Oh I know, I cannot cross boundaries myself, and I must maintain self-control.  I must be careful not to return evil for evil.  Am I perfect at this?  No.  Sadly but I do repent.  And strive for His excellence in these matters.  

And I have loved people, and sadly, many have walked away, or I walked away from them, because they showed no respect.  There are personal boundaries, that I will not allow someone to cross.  And the worst lately, for me, is the silent treatment.  

I will not tolerate that.  Because it is a sign of rejection.  And a sign of disrespect.  Its a form of manipulation, to punish me, when I know, I did not deserve that.  

I will not tolerate, obscenities to be spoken about me, or against me.  Or gestures that may not be spoken but that are the same.  As an obscenity.  I will not tolerate lies, as well.  I know who I am, in Christ.

For me, its a matter, of maintaining my dignity, in Christ.  When I know I have forgiven.  Others.   When I know, I do not deserve treatment like that, because I am a child of the King.  

I may sound harsh.  I may sound mean.  But if I have to be cruel to be kind, then maybe the person, who is being used by the enemy will see their own errors.  No!  I will not take that.  

I will speak truth, because thats the only thing that sets us free.  And maybe thats why I am hated.  But I would rather please my God, then people.  

And I am determined to prove my trustworthiness to God.  It is my goal.  But I cannot do that if I myself, am in denial.  And not walking in love.  And not doing my part, to maintain who I am in Christ.  He sees, everything, and why people don’t grasp that is beyond me.  

But oh well….  I cannot be cowardly in these matters of finding my own dignity, and respect.  

See we all have to grow.  If we really want to have a healthy spirit, with Christ.  And there are boundaries, we sometimes have to see, and say no, enough is enough.

Now if people are smart enough they will see the error of their own ways, and not cross those boundaries, but also, repent to God, and apologize to those you have taken advantage of disrespectfully.

That spirit comes from the enemy.  There are clues, that indicate this:

1. A spirit of manipulation.  (are you trying to make someone do something, by being manipulative? )  Thats wrong, and dishonest in the sight of God.

2.  Are you being a false witness?  Are you accusing someone else, because you just want to be vindictive?  You need to really see the error of your own ways…..

3. Do you really forgive, or do you bring it back up?  And if you do forgive, then forgive but don’t throw something back at someones face to be a false witness.  Thats a lie from hell to do so.  Because forgiveness is covered by the blood of Jesus.  

4.  Are you jealous?  That spirit, leads right to the devil, for that is one of his characteristics.  You have to see it.

5.  Are you in denial?  You cannot see your own errors, but you try to put it on someone else disrespectfully?  That is wrong, in the sight of God, and you will never grow.

6.  Do you have the spirit of pride?  That pride will always try to puff yourself up, and you will never admit your own wrong doing, because you cannot bear to let anybody see you humble.  Thats so wrong.

7.  Do you walk out of love, and make it all about you.  How narcissistic that is, and again, another characteristic from the devil.  SELF.  

Yes, walking away hurts.  Especially when you love people. But I have learned, as much as I do hate confrontation, I have to confront people like that.  And tell them, what bothers me, so I can get my own dignity back with respect.  

And either they take it for what its worth, and see the error of their own ways.  Or they do not.  But I do not need friendships that are not based on any kind of mutual respect.  I do not need to be anybodies punching bag.  

Being cruel to be kind, does not cross lines as well.  Returning evil for evil.  And I know for my own part, it may seem harsh, and evil as well.  

But I repent.  And thats the difference, because I know, the only way God will guide me, and help me grow, is if I am in that place of humbleness.  Yes we all make mistakes,  but I know the key is knowing who you are in Christ.  Not crossing boundaries, and yes repenting, and apologizing.

Just sharing some thoughts today on the matter.  You see, I need to get healthy myself spiritually, and I need to maintain those boundaries for my own growth in Christ.  Sometimes you do put up walls, so you can protect yourself.  So others will not cross that boundary.  

Is that being cruel to be kind?  I don’t know, all I know, is when I am done.  And right now, I am done.  Until I see something to change my mind and heart, back to respect. 

HE THAT HATH NO RULE OVER HIS OWN SPIRIT IS LIKE A CITY THAT IS BROKEN DOWN, AND WITHOUT WALLS.  PROVERBS 25:28  KJV.  

Love and blessings,

Elena

REMEMBER THE LOVE THE GOOD TIMES TO GO ON EVEN IF YOU ARE HURT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3480REMEMBER THE LOVE THE GOOD TIMES TO GO ON EVEN IF YOU ARE HURT ~ By Elena Ramirez

Sometimes, people have to speak things over us, by God so we can see it. So, this is what I will do for you, as my husband spoke this over me.

You see, I had a very dear friend, who I loved dearly. And we were friends for over 25 years. I loved this lady dearly, and you know what she loved me. She was a very generous lady, a very kind lady, in Christ. We both were prayer warriors.

But people change, and I suppose I did too. And well the enemy divided us up. I never thought, I would see that day, but it did happen.

And I won’t go into all the details, but when respect is not given or received, or when one is rejected, well one walks away. I did. Maybe I misunderstood, but since she would not clarify it, thats what I interpreted.

Anyway, long story short, its been over a month. Since we have talked. And I don’t expect her or me to budge in this. Its not that I have pride, but I know when I have done all I can and so, I know I could not add anything more.

But I found myself getting bitter about it, angry, yes I told her I forgave, and I do. But sometimes, you can war within yourself in these matters. I did.

Last night my husband and I were briefly talking about it. And I said, I just feel indifferent now. Not that I don’t care, because I do, but I just am disappointed.

He told me, you know, you need to just let it go. You outgrew each other, and just remember the good in her, she is a good person, and for what it was worth, she blessed you, you blessed her, and now its done. Its over.

Something about his words, ministered to me. I went to sleep finally at peace about it. I prayed God bless her. She is a very kind, and generous person, and she made me laugh, and we were good friends, but sometimes, things change.

People outgrow each other, for different reasons. I suppose she outgrew me, and not that I outgrew her, because I accepted her as she was.

But I accept her choices now, and I RESPECT, her reasons. Even though I do not understand. I can go on.

Perhaps, you struggle, with someone, from your past. Someone you love. A friendship, or even a love. Remember the love, the kindness, the friendship, and don’t demonize them, or hate them, but just release them, with the love, the good that bound you.

See you have to make sure poison, of unforgiveness does not affect you. You have to make sure you are doing your part according to Christ. I cannot control the situation, but I can control how I react to it. I release her in Christ, because she was a gift.

There is a saying, if you love someone, let them go, and if they are yours they will return. I love my friend, enough to walk away, and let her go. I don’t seek to return, to her, nor do I think she seeks to return to me. It is what it is. But I accept it now, with forgiveness in my heart.

But I have peace, and thank God for the times, we were friends, it nurtured me, and I rejoice in the gift of what it was then. It was a gift.

But some gifts, are returned to the sender. No matter what the heart felt intention was. If it was not true, it will show itself. See gifts are just something that is icing on the cake.

But if the sentiment, does not follow up with respect it does not prove itself.

Oh well. God bless your day.

Getting to the root of things…and I guess I am thinking of bitterness, unforgiveness or even hate.  

I am in the garden this morning, and I have a small patch of land that has been invaded by this plant that has taken over the ground so nothing else can grow. And I just thought….

You know there are things that can take root in our spirits, and they block the blessings. They block our growth, they block our spiritual fruits, from coming forth. And I just thought of my own life.

I thought, of how I have had so many spiritual battles. So many physical fights. So many times, I have had to try and defend myself, because of some of the enemies I have had. Even friends, who have loved me, but abandoned me, and you know what this root is symbolic.

Its symbolic, to the point, where I don’t care any more, whether, or not, some have loved me or not. Or they said they were my friend, but they did not prove it. I have a sensitive soul, and I am very loving. But I realize not all do love me.

And so I release this root, and pull it up, and pray God bless those who have hurt me, who have not been true to me, who do not care about my calling, to serve God, and they show no love or support, or even those who have said they were my friend, but secretly hated me.

I release them.

I release those who were honest enough to not love me, and challenged me. I release everyone!

You see, life, is too short to have a bitter root, in my heart. And you know I have for the most part tried to be forgiving. But sometimes, it has affected me the way some have treated me. Well, I don’t care today.

And I pull that root up, and toss it in the trash where it belongs.  I also though repent, and humble myself in the sight of God.  Asking God to take it away from me.  

So the other places of my heart can produce fruit, and I plant seeds of love, and hope, and holiness, from God.

So to each their own, I know with wisdom, we all deal with something or someone in one way or another. But why should we allow them space in our hearts, when they don’t care?

I do not want to reap hate, or discouragement from anybody any more. So there. Its gone, in the trash!

And in its place is a sense of the beauty of who God is to me, and there is no room there now for anything else.

My thought for the day…..

BUT HE ANSWERED AND SAID, EVERY PLANT, WHICH MY HEAVENLY FATHER HATH NOT PLANTED, SHALL BE ROOTED UP.  MATTHEW 15:13

I WANT TO BE A NICE PERSON BUT ONE WHO SPEAKS GODS TRUTH IN LOVE ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


If interested in reading my books via Smashwords, go to this link.  My latest book.  BEHAVIORAL CURSES THAT CHANGE INTO BLESSINGS WITH CHRIST.

I do want to be a nice person, but I want to be one who speaks truth in love.  I am older now, and I have really, in all actuality tried to be a nice person.  All of my life.  

But that did not stop me from getting into physical battles, and yes spiritual ones.  Because there usually is someone who will challenge you, even when you are trying to be nice.  Or speaking truth.  

And it just made me think, because recently, I had an opposing thought from someone, who more or less challenged me, and it made me think.  I walked in love with this person, for the most part, but they brought up feelings that made me think, how dare they challenge me, when they say hypocritical things.  Things I have seen them write.  And I thought about the poison, that can bring in.  I repented.

You know, I want to be nice.  But not for the sake of denying Christ.  Or to please someone else.  To just be a people pleaser.  Yet I know, truth can cut.  It can wound.  It can divide people.  I know.

I have lost a lot of friends, because I have spoken truth.  But I am not going to change my way to be nice, and to see someone I love, or care about, go down the wrong road, or near the fire, and say it harshly, or even abruptly, don’t do that, that will burn you.  Or to warn them about someone who does not speak truth.

So I speak truth.  Praying it will make them see the truth.  Gods truth.  As a warning of love.  Praying they will see what Christ did on the cross for us, and that anybody else who denies Christ as the way, the truth, and life, is someone we should not look up to as leaders.  

I am not perfect.  I have made bad judgment calls.  Even in truth.  And the thing is, we can be deceived, if we don’t know Gods whole truth.  I add that word “whole” because I believe in the King James Bible.  

Yet, many other bible versions are not “whole” and complete, because they have missing scriptures, the content is changed, because the context is changed, and they are corrupt.  Its disobedience, to use anything that God has warned us not to change or add to or delete.  He has warned us throughout my King James, not to do that.

I have used this analogy before, but Christ is the bread of life.  He would not give us junk food.  When He serves us.  But those bible versions, have mold on them.  Mold because they disregarded Gods warnings, and when we share or give scripture and use scripture that has been changed.  There is no true anointing and holiness.  It therefore then becomes junk food.  They are corrupted.

Yes, there may be some truth to the scripture but because it was changed, it is now part truth, part lie.  I warn people all the time, and so many are totally annoyed and withdrawn from me, because I speak this truth.  

Oh I am not fooled.  People, come and go, but they keep me at a distance, because of this truth, I believe in.  Churches, that once embraced me ignore me.  Leaders in the body of Christ won’t even give me the time of day, when I speak to them.

Well, it is what it is.  I know I am just me, and some people look at me, and think I am foolish, as they define this truth as just nonsense.  But they do not see, they are blind.  Yet their intellectual reasoning, and defiance, is foolishness to God.

You would think by now, I would back off.  But instead my armor of God has gotten stronger, and bolder.  In His truth.  

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.  

All I can do is be obedient to God, and speak this truth.  I will try and be nice about it, but I will never change my mind about this truth.  

PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.  COMPARE SCRIPTURES, AND SEE THE CHANGES.  SEE THE MISSING SCRIPTURES.  SEE THE DECEPTION, THAT THE ENEMY BRINGS TO DECEIVE, BY CHANGING GODS HOLY WORD.  MORE THEN ANYTHING SEE THE SCRIPTURES THAT WARN ALL OF US NOT TO DO ANYTHING WITH GODS HOLY WORD!  

Read at least Revelation 22:18-19 if you value your salvation.  Read it from a King James Bible.  

And if you perceive my caps as not being nice oh well.  But I would rather please God, than anybody.  Even in shouting it out.  

I think my testimony in my life, is proving that, and I hope it always will reflect my loyalty to God in truth.  

His truth, not mine, not yours, not some strange person who sat behind a desk, and came up with some bible that is not truth, but HIS!

Have a blessed day, Elena Ramirez

Sometimes, you have to look and see what makes a good friend.  And sometimes, you have to understand, good friends, need to be loved and appreciated.  Christ does that for me, as my greatest friend.

I know His sacrifice on the cross, and the beatings He took for me, and to pay the penalty of my sins, reminds me, how great a friend He is.

So how can I show Christ, my love, and that I appreciate, His great sacrifice?

It is the Christmas season right now.  And I cannot explain it, but I feel something in the spiritual realm even in my own growth, and understanding, in gratitude, that I just want to stop, and concentrate on Christ more this season.

I get sad, because you know we all like nice things, but the world, people, even other Christians, seem to forget about what this season is all about.  The reason for the season.  And its Jesus!

Sometimes, growth, circumstances, poverty, lack, and yes even an abundance, can make you stop and see, and say.  Is this what it really is all about?

I mean, we can really get caught up in the ways of the world.  We can get caught up, in material things.  The lack of, or the abundance.  Where is the balance?

Right now, I just want to be a good friend to Christ.  More then ever.  I am a Christian, who has been a Christian for a few years now.  And when I made the decision, to give it my all to Christ, I have not turned back.  Yet, daily, I have to work on my relationship with Him.

So, as I ponder on this time of season, and I deal with issues of life, in my own personal life, my families, and I see the world, and I see issues, politically as well, and I see people, and how they feel.  Well, I can get my eyes off of Christ.

And you know, I am just trying to sort it out, even as I write, because life is important.  What you do with your life is important.  How you look at life, and how you deal with situations.  I am not perfect far from it.  But being the old girl that I am now…..I can easily recall, how just searching for God, through Christ, has made a difference for me.  There are so many things though, that I have not accomplished, or done, or been able to do, that can make me stumble.  I don’t want to stumble.

So, I am just sorting my feelings out here, and just knowing how much I need to seek God more so.  So many have the outlook, that you just receive your salvation, and thats it.  You are safe.  But, I don’t see it like that.  I take the scriptures to heart, when it says, work out your salvation with trembling and fear.  I take to heart, that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.  I take to heart….

That I have my part in it.  I have to discipline myself sometimes, I have to bring it all to the obedience of Christ.

And maybe you can relate to this, maybe not.  But I actually get jealous, and angry for God, when people deny Him.  When they say terrible things about God, when they mock Him.  When they ignore Him……So I take this to heart….

I have to….right now I have to.  I am not sure what I am feeling.  Maybe it is sorrow, we did have a death in our family.  Maybe it is a sense, that nothing is forever, unless it is with God.  I am sad, this family member was so young.  Why did it have to happen?

But even through this I know the answer is to press into God more! Not less, I can never pull back in who I am in Christ.  Even if I am sad.  Even if I cannot control my own opportunities.  I know God can.  So, I just want to press into God more.

A friend asked, recently, when do you feel more alive? (sweet Narita, maybe she will read this)  And my answer was:  In all honesty, when I am close to God!  And that is the ultimate truth for me, when I am.  He is the way, the truth and the life.  I know that!  And I know what life was like without Him.  That was not life.  That was being like the walking dead.  So no, I will not pull back, no matter what I am feeling.  Because He fills my cup with life, in Him, as I live move, and have my being.

I don’t know all the answers.  And I do not pretend to know.  But I just sense right now, how precious life is, and in Christ.  I don’t know you, or your situation.  I don’t know what you are feeling, or going through.  But, I do know there is a God.  I know it with all my being.  More so, then I did yesterday.  You see, everyday I have to search for God.  And every day, I find Him, when I search.

Today is no different.  Just that I find Him, in different ways.

His love, compels me to search.  And I don’t want to be legalistic.  But, I know there are ways, to reach Him, according to His excellence.  I suppose this is one other reason why I am adamant about using only a King James bible.  Purity, preservation, something about going back to the old way of doing something, opposed to modern techniques, or technology.  Seeking God.  By prayer, the greatest way of communicating to a King.  My friend, my Lord, my savior.

Jesus, is my greatest friend.  And I just have a sense, more then ever, how precious His friendship is to me.  But I have my part…..

And I guess, this is just a little rant of my own, to sort it all out, but I think of who God is, and His patience.  I also see, what His word says, His warnings.  His anger, as well, and I see how history even in the word of God, tells us, who God is, and what He expects.  The fear of God is healthy for a soul.

I don’t know, I just want to grow, but I want to do it Gods way.  And what good is life, if we don’t grow, in who the creator intended us to be?  Its life, lets live it for His glory.  Or what counts?  I just want to make a difference.  In my own life, and yes in others.  But we have to see, we have to know, we have to try…..

TO HIM WHO ALONE DOETH GREAT WONDERS: FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOREVER.  Psalm 137:4
