THE TIMES WHEN YOU NEED TO WAIT ON THE LORD, BE STILL, HOLD YOUR GROUND, AND BE STUBBORN ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

LEAD ME IN THY TRUTH, AND TEACH ME:  FOR THOU ART THE GOD OF MY SALVATION; ON THEE DO I WAIT ALL THE DAY.  PSALMS 25:5 KJV. 

There are times, when one must wait on the Lord, be still, hold your ground, and be stubborn.  Because these are times of testing.  These are times of endurance.  These are times, of growth, where you are adamant, to believe the promises of God.

And believe me, I know, God tests us.

See, it is easy to give up.  It is easy, to back down.  And frankly, who wants to face battles, or spiritual battles, and be in a situation, where you are challenged?  

BUT GOD!….

I grew up fighting.  Did I want to?  No, the first time, I was challenged, I wanted to back down, and run away.  But something, within, told me, I had to fight, or I could not face myself.  And that was as a very young child.  I had to respect myself, or I knew, no one else would respect me.  

Now, I know, there are times, I do have to fight, but in a different way, sometimes, where I wait on the Lord, hold my ground, and be stubborn, because of who God is.  Because He sees me.  Because He tests me.  And because I have seen Him fight my battles.  But I only win, the battle on my knees to God. 

I will be the first to admit, when I look at my own track record, I have made some terrible mistakes, for love, for friendship, for my own personal desires.  And I have paid the price, I have reaped terribly in some areas.  Because it was sin. 

It has made me seek God, all the more.  It has made me want to please Him, even when I don’t understand, why?  Or how, or His ways.

LET INTEGRITY AND UPRIGHTNESS PRESERVE ME FOR I WAIT ON THEE.  PSALMS 25:21  KJV.  

This poor judgement on my part, has brought me to my knees, repenting, pleading with God.  I have prayed for some things that in my life, that did not prosper.  And many times, I have regretted, not being successful in certain matters.  But it is not over, until God says it is over.  

Even now, I have felt challenged, and I want to be gracious in a certain matter.  But that would be weakness.  That would be defeating the cause, in which God has made.  In this test.  

WAIT ON THE LORD: BE OF GOOD COURAGE, AND HE SHALL STRENGTHEN THINE HEART:  WAIT I SAY ON THE LORD.  PSALMS 27:14  KJV.

And I have felt the Lord, speak to my heart, and tell me NO! Do not give in.  Do not betray yourself.  Do not betray me.  Do not open up communication.  Do not try and make a way.  Do not! Do not be weak in this matter.  You are right, now follow through.  Do not concede, or give up, do not fail!  

And I won’t get into the details…..  

But I have to be stubborn in this matter.  Because it is a spiritual matter.  As much as I love, in this, I have to do whats right in the sight of God.  I have to be loyal to God first.  I have to wait on Him.  I have to hold my ground.  I have to be stubborn. I have to prove my love to Him.  In this test.

REST IN THE LORD, AND WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM:  FRET NOT THYSELF BECAUSE OF HIM WHO PROSPERETH IN HIS WAY, BECAUSE OF THE MAN WHO BRINGETH WICKED DEVICES TO PASS.  CEASE FROM ANGER, AND FORSAKE WRATH:  FRET NOT THYSELF IN ANY WISE TO DO EVIL.  FOR EVIL DOERS SHALL BE CUT OFF:  BUT THOSE THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD, THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.  PSALMS 37:7-9  KJV. 

I know the battle is His.  I just have to be obedient to God.  I just have to submit to God, and resist the devil.  And when I do, I tell God this.  And when I tell him that, I actually renounce the devil, his enemy, and God fights my battles.

SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  JAMES 4:7 KJV. 

BECAUSE OF HIS STRENGTH WILL I WAIT UPON THEE;  FOR GOD IS MY DEFENCE.  PSALMS 59:9  KJV.

Do you see, where I get my strength? It is in obedience to God.  Its in proving my self to him.  By waiting on the Lord, being still, holding my ground, and being stubborn, because of Him.  

I must avoid pride.  I must avoid, wanting power.  Or money.  Or anything that is ungodly.  I must avoid any kind of spiritual nonsense, that does not come from His throne.  Even if they claim, they come in the name of the Lord.  I will know them, by their fruit.  I must avoid anything that is not of God. Or not in the nature of who HE is.  Being careful about being distracted.  Focus on Christ, and never letting go of His hand.  NEVER!

I must avoid any characteristic of the enemy, or I will be my own worst enemy.  I must walk in love, forgiving, and embracing all of the promises of God.  

When my inner voice, that is not always in tune to Gods promises, tells me negative things.  I must rebuke it in the name of Jesus.  Deny the lies from the enemy!  And claim the promises of God.  By writing them, speaking them, praying them and embracing God, for He does not lie.  So my inner voice will always be in tune with God.  This is my responsibility, this is my soul, and I must nurture it in Christ, and good King James truth, that is holy, and powerful, in discernment, to avoid….The lies that come from the enemy.  So this is why…

WAIT ON THE LORD, AND KEEP HIS WAY, AND HE SHALL EXALT THEE TO INHERIT THE LAND; WHEN THE WICKED ARE CUT OFF, THOU SHALT SEE IT.  PSALMS 37:34  KJV. 

I give God all the Glory, Honor, and Praise.  Because of who HE is.  Because of what HE did on that cross for me, and you.  That breaks the curses, every time.  That precious blood of Jesus that I plead.  And so I will not compromise that, in any way.  It is in holiness, that makes a way.  For Christ is the way, the truth, and life.  

I WILL PRAISE THEE FOREVER, BECAUSE THOU HAST DONE IT: AND I WILL WAIT ON THY NAME; FOR IT IS GOOD BEFORE THY SAINTS.  PSALMS 52:9  KJV.  

This is why I am adamant about the word I use, this is why, I will not compromise.  When I err, and I do, I repent.  I don’t let it pile up, any more, into more disobedience.  I refuse to compromise my soul, my future, my life in playing with my salvation, or playing with spiritual matters.

I fear God.

And I just know, that right now, I will submit to God in all matters, and let Him, do the fighting.  I am keeping my peace, and I will not be struggling, in my mind, as the battle.  

I will accept the will of God.  I will, trust God, and I will obey God, in my matters, of just waiting on Him, being still, holding my ground and stubborn.  

I hope this blesses you somehow. As I close, and praise and thank God.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

SAVE US, O LORD, OUR GOD, AND GATHER US FROM AMONG THE HEATHEN, TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THY HOLY NAME, AND TO TRIUMPH IN THY PRAISE.  

PSALM 106:47.  KJV.   

 

In Christ, Elena Ramirez

HOW TO BE HAPPY WITH A VISION FROM GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2616HOW TO BE HAPPY WITH A VISION FROM GOD….

I want you to see yourself happy with a vision from God.

And sometimes, we just have to see what King James word says.

You know, so many teachings, have perverted what Paul said, that we are not to keep the law. That grace covers it.

And it has bothered me from time, to time, because there are so many scriptures that tell us to keep the “law.”

This particular scripture tells us if we want to be happy, we have to keep the law. Look it up, from a King James. Proverbs 29:18.

See yourself happy, as the vision. Claim it in Jesus name….

And take the commandments, to heart, try to obey them.

Repent, if you know you have not. Including just believing the lie, that we are not to keep the law.

WATCHING THE COMPANIONS YOU WALK WITH ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3138WATCHING THE COMPANIONS YOU WALK WITH ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
I learned at an early age that people can influence you. They can corrupt you, they can ruin your life, if you don’t get wise.
 
Wisdom, sometimes, it does not come till much later in our lives. Because we have to learn through our mistakes. We learn through our sins, we learn through the lack of progress…
 
At least I did.
 
Anyway, I feel like I need to write this for someone. To warn you. There is….
 
Someone, that just is not good for you. You know it, but you need to know what God says…. Because you keep going with it. Maybe you love that person, maybe you keep forgiving…. But the bottom line is this person is destructive, and will be the ruin of you.
 
You are unequally yoked with this person. There is no understanding, or respect to you, for your love for God. You need to get away….
 
Scripture tells us to not be unequally yoked with an unbeliever. I could write the scripture down here for you.
 
But you need to start searching, and growing in the Lord.
 
Get a King James bible. Then get a concordance, a good Bible King James bible app. Put in the words, “unequally yoked.” Or righteousness, darkness, also as options. To find the scripture. (clue its in II Corinthians)
 
Keep growing my friends, and be careful who you walk with….
 

TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE LITTLE THING TO BE STRONG AGAINST THAT BIG THING…..By Elena Ramirez

If we cannot take a stand for God, in just a little thing. Like not seeing a certain movie, or not going to a place that is notorious, for sin, or accepting people, in our lives who are bad influences.

What kind of stand is that? How can we stand against the enemy in a big thing, if we are not strong against him, in a little thing?

Folks, we can miss it. I am sad today for I see, the little foxes steal the vines…..

We are the vine, growing with Christ, but if we do not submit to Him, we can be cut off.

Don’t we see that? Again. How can we stand against the enemy in big things, if we won’t submit to God even in little things?

And take a stand against that little thing? We ALL have to see this…

Wow, not an easy, feel good, soft and fuzzy title.  But I write them as the Lord gives them to me.

So why is the Lord using me, to write about something so strong?  That one could take offense to it.  Or it could open someones eyes.  Just the word “whore”, is vulgar, if you think about it.  

But it is biblical to talk about.  And this applies to men and women.  And even in other situations, besides adultery.  So here goes…

I WILL DO THESE THINGS UNTO THEE, BECAUSE THOU HAST GONE A WHORING AFTER THE HEATHEN AND BECAUSE THOU ART POLLUTED WITH THEIR IDOLS.  EZEKIEL 23:30  KING JAMES.  

LEST THOU MAKE A COVENANT WITH THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND, AND THEY GO A WHORING AFTER THEIR GODS, AND DO SACRIFICE UNTO THEIR GODS, AND ONE CALL THEE, AND THOU EAT OF HIS SACRIFICE.  EXODUS 34:15.  KING JAMES.  

AND THE SOUL THAT TURNETH AFTER SUCH AS HAVE FAMILIAR SPIRITS, AND AFTER WIZARDS, TO GO A WHORING AFTER THEM, I WILL EVEN SET MY FACE AGAINST THAT SOUL, AND WILL CUT HIM OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  LEVITICUS 20:6.  KING JAMES

So, one has to recognize it is a spirit.  And before it even manifests itself though, it can be taken to the cross, in repentance.  Before anything happens.  And I guess, thats what I want to warn you about.  I want you to recognize it, before, so you can avoid it.  So you can rebuke the whoring, adulterous spirit.  But only in the name of Jesus, can you find the power to do that.

I don’t want to judge anybody.  I have taken my own sins, to the cross, and prayed for forgiveness.  And even now, when I think about some of my own stupid sins, I still repent.

But, I do feel an obligation to write this, because there is a whorish, adulterous spirit, that can even come on the best, intending Christians.  Let alone, someone, who is naive, and does not know Gods truth.

Sin, its meant to kill, steal, destroy.  Its meant to stop your blessings.  Its meant to steal the promises from God from you.

Because if one sins, and does not repent, the enemy, has a “legal” right to harass you.  To steal your salvation.  To deceive you.  

I see messages, sometimes, that state grace, will make a way, when there is sin.  But they do not add, that inbetween, sin, and grace, there has to be repentance.  I don’t see it taught.  Maybe it is.

Anyway, we live in a very adulterous world.  Women, and men, showing their bodies, with no modesty, and what does this teach women, and men?  What does it teach our young girls?  Where is the outcry to say, cover yourselves up….don’t give it all away.  Leave the mystery.  But our society does not teach these things.  Just turn your television on, and you see it.

Respect yourself.  Because if you don’t the devil certainly will not.

And seldom, heard, do I hear it from the body of Christ, and Christian leaders.

Temptation comes….and when you most try to avoid it.  It will try anyway. But God says if we are obedient to him, he will not allow a temptation.

THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN;  BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL, WHO WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT YE ARE ABLE:  BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT.  I Corinthians 10:13 King James only.

Remember Joseph, he ran, when the Pharoahs wife tried to seduce him.

We should run from sin.  We should teach our daughters and sons, the benefits of staying away from sin.  Including sexually transmitted diseases.

Now, just a clue here, but because we all want to be beautiful, smart, and blessed.  But what do we use our beauty for?  Is it to attract a mate?  Is it to show you are better then someone?  

Everything our society seems to point out is the beauty someone has?  But in doing so, they are losing something.  Its innocence.  Its modesty, its self-respect.  

Sometimes when I watch television programs where hollywood, or the music community has award shows.  I look at the womens clothing, and I think, golly, girl, put some clothes on.  You can catch a cold.  To say the least…..

You know what it brings, but a whorish, adulterous spirit.  That leads to sin.

People do not talk about sin hardly any more.  Maybe because we all do sin, according to scripture.  We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  

But, when you repent, and give your heart to God, you should make sure, you stay away from sin.  So you have to understand the spirits…whether of God, or the devil.  

Because you want your robes of righteousness, clean, when you stand before God.

That is your responsibility too.  We do not have an excuse to sin, when we accept Christ.  We don’t.

I just feel like I am talking to someone, who needs to see this.  You are so tempted right now.  You want to indulge in a whorish, adulterous spirit, and release yourself to someone.  Someone, who may even say they love you.  But if they loved you, they would marry you.  They would make it right before God.  By honoring you.  It would not be adulterous.  

Maybe you have an adulterous sin, just repent.  Ask God to cleanse you of your sins.  Turn from whoring ways.  But see it, before it is too late.  

If you do not honor yourself, no one else will.  You have to see that.

But what you don’t see, is that the devil, is trying to take your blessings, your future, your hopes, even your health away.

Repent for the thought, the desire, the longing, that holds you captive and just turn back to God.

Turn back, don’t go down that road.  It leads straight to hell.  So rebuke that whorish adulterous spirit.  Rebuke it, and get right with God.  Because it leads to other sins as well.  

Rebuke it, in Jesus name.  So your own true love can be revealed to God, and others.

KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?  BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATORS, NOR IDOLATORS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND.   NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS, NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS, NOR EXTORTIONERS, SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.  AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU, BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, AND BY THE SPIRIT OF OUR GOD.    I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 KING JAMES.

 

Blessings, and love, in Christ,

To live happily ever after….

If I could warn girls and women of this I would….and that is don’t give yourself away.

Don’t take your sexuality, and give it to any man, without marriage.  Without God, without holiness.  

Don’t sell yourself short, and lose something that is precious to God, and to you, and that is virtue.

Virtue.  No body talks about virtue any more.  Nobody, tries to instill that in our society.  Or teach that to our women.  

Well I will.  And it may fall on deaf ears….  

But, when I even see a Christian organization, using wording that mentions prostitution as a “high class call girl”:  To describe a womans journey to know God, and they describe her as that, what kind of message is that?  

There is nothing high class, about a woman, desperate, enough, to sell her body, to get money.  To have someone pay to use her, that is nothing short of prostitution.  I don’t understand call it sin!  Sin made her a prostitute.  

So our society, and our world, and even Christian organizations do not see the evil of this.  Or the danger.  Or the sin.  You know we all make mistakes.  We all want to believe in love.  We want to hope that when sex happens its with the right person.  But God has a way, of showing us that is wrong.  Its called sin.

And we really should take it to heart.  We really should see, God called us to holiness.  He called us to honor Him in this.  

So we live in this society, that every where you turn, sexuality is promoted.  And it contributes to so much heartache, even sexual diseases, and truth of the matter is, when a woman gives herself to a man.  She disarmed herself.  

You see, all is not fair, in love and war.  And when a woman gives herself to a man, he has taken that which is holy in the sight of God, and she is no longer worthy to be cherished.  Like the saying goes, why buy the cow, when you can get the milk free.  And women need to stop this!  Stop treating yourself like a piece of meat.  

Or giving in, to every man, or any man who can give you nothing.  But sadness, loneliness, heartache, and yes shame!  Just for a night.

Theres something to be said, about waiting till marriage.  There is something to be said, to honor God.  There is something to be said, about the mystery, between God, a man, and a woman, when holy matrimony is presented before this sexuality can be uncovered.  It makes the foundation stronger.  It brings true love, to a man and a woman, who can grow into love, with each passing day.  It gives them both something to look back on, and say, we did it Gods way.  

I know, that this is true, because I will be honest, every man I met, who did not want to honor me in this way, I walked away from.  And when I met my husband, he listened to me, and he agreed.  We waited till marriage.  

I saw my worth.  I saw, I needed God more then ever.  I saw I needed to obey God.  I saw all of my mistakes, and I saw how life was passing me by.  I saw how sin destroys lives.  And I saw I needed to do things the way of the Lord.  I saw that I had to be strong in this.  I saw I could not waver.  I saw that my happiness depended on Gods blessings more then ever.  And HE does bless.  

I think when a woman learns this, repents to God, and sees the error of her ways, she is on the path, to doing it the way of Christ.  Not the world.  And it makes a difference folks, in the relationship.  I know, my husband and I are, evidence of this.  

Sin is a natural destroyer.  It comes to kill, steal and destroy, and that means your personal happiness.  In the spirit, we may not understand everything about it, but when sin is present, the presence of God, is not there.  But when God is in the midst of a couple, who do things His way, there is power.  In holiness, without sexuality first.  There is love.  For God is love.

I know this is my secret for a happy marriage.  I know it.  And I do not judge anybody in this.  But I am telling you this, because it works.  I tell you this, because our little girls, see all this crap on t.v. and in the movies, that they don’t even try to hide, and it is not the natural thing to do.  If our girls learned this, from our women, we might have some integrity, some honor to show for it.  It produces holiness, which always brings God into the picture.

I just feel for women in this.  I am sad so many do not have happy marriages.  Or a mate, who is ordained from God.  

Men should treat women with respect.  Men should also promote abstinence before marriage.  They can live happily ever after too.  Dont take that which belongs to God.  Before holy matrimony.  

But we see so much of this animalistic approach, that says, try it out before you buy it.  What a cheap, and degrading approach this is.  This does not satisfy the heart.  No, not at all because it removes the one true ingredient, and that is God.  And God is love.  

All I know, is that on earth as it is in heaven.  There is a covenant, between God and women, and men.  And when sin is present, that covenant will not hold, it will not stand, it breaks.  Adultery…..

I write about this in my book.  How to have Faith.  The title of the chapter is my Secret to true love.  And this is it.  

http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com 

Christ will return friends.  And He is coming for a church, a body of people that is without spot and blemish.  

THAT HE MIGHT PRESENT IT TO HIMSELF A GLORIOUS CHURCH, NOT HAVING SPOT OR WRINKLE, OR ANY SUCH THING, BUT THAT IT SHOULD BE HOLY AND WITHOUT BLEMISH.  Ephesians 5:27.  KING JAMES.  

Read this, and see, if God was in your marriage.  It would not have any blemish.  Repentance.  Cleans the slate.  

You know you could start all over again.  If you only would see the value of virtue.  If you let the Lord build your house.  ABSTINENCE.  

Being old fashioned, is not a bad thing, it really is a good thing, and sometimes we have to judge ourselves.  We have to see the error of our ways.  We have to see what works, and what does not.  And I am telling you this.  Because it does work.  

Holiness works, for true love.  For a happy marriage.  If I could save your marriage, then that means Christ saved you, to find that happiness.  

So you met this wonderful guy?  Great.  But don’t give yourself away.  And don’t give what could be the only thing you have to ensure, you can live happily ever after.  Let God build your house.  Psalm 127:1  KING JAMES.  

EXCEPT THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE, THEY LABOR IN VAIN THAT BUILD IT, EXCEPT THE LORD KEEP THE CITY, THE WATCHMEN WAKETH BUT IN VAIN.  

God has a plan for your life.  Never sell yourself short.  When with God you can have the best.  

WHO CAN FIND A VIRTUOUS WOMAN?  FOR HER PRICE IS FAR ABOVE RUBIES.  PROVERBS 31:10  KING JAMES.  

Invite me to your ladies group, church, or function, and I would be glad to share with you this truth.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

Loneliness, contributes to sin, and when loneliness is there, the void is evident.  God is missing.  So we sin.

Try explaining that in one sentence.  But it is true, when we have rejected God, or we have decided to sin, Gods spirit leaves.

He is holy.  He calls us to holiness.   He cannot be in our temples, so to speak, if we have sinned, or entertain even the thought of sinning.  

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?  I Corinthians 3:16.

I know this now.   But years ago I did not.  I did not know how important it was for me, to develop my own relationship with the Lord.  In obedience, in prayer, in seeing even in scripture with the fear of God, that He punished sin.

Grace is a beautiful thing.  But lets get one thing straight.  Grace does not pardon sin.  We reap what we sow.  Grace is being repentant to God, and then He pardons the sin.  Thereby giving grace.  By not punishing us for something we ALL so deserve.  But it is by Christs sacrifice, that we are extended grace.

But He does not extend grace to the heart, or soul, that sins, and does not repent.  Grace is not an excuse to sin.  And sloppy agape, does not cut it.  

No wonder our world is so jacked up.  No wonder, there are so many people who do the things they do.  They want to fill that empty spot.  They want to relieve the pain of loneliness.  They don’t want to be alone.  So what do they do?  They look for a substitute.  

They break vows, with God and a mate.  Or they break their own promises to serve God.  A covenant, they break for sin.  They break the “law” of God so much, they become their own enemy.  The law….don’t confuse that.  God does not change.  And those commandments, they are there for a reason, Gods reasons.  

But people who look for a substitute…..They go with people, who are bad influences.  They go with people, who entice them.  They go with people, who offer them drugs, or alcohol, or anything to “numb” the loneliness.  So they sin.  

Then it opens the door to other things, like STDS, (sexual transmitted diseases) because the wages of sin is death, and its the enemies plan to come to kill, to destroy, your life.  

Or worse, they entice someone.  Lord help the innocent….  

This opens the door to the devil.  And he does not want you to know Christ.  He does not want you to be saved.  And the more and more you sin, the further and further you get from God, because the place in your heart, that you have that should be filled with God, is gone, because you allowed sin.  This is why we all get lonely.

For in just having a “true” relationship with the Lord, not based on religion, but in knowing Him, accepting Him, seeking Him, He takes the place of what sin is, and He fills the void.  The loneliness leaves.

God meant for us to have a true partner, and mate in life, who is someone who helps us, in these things.  And I just want to implore you.  Keep trusting God.  You may be lonely.  You may be looking for love in the wrong places.  But let God fill your heart up, your mind, your spirit, and keep busy, whatever it may be, no matter how lonely you are, but He can take the place of your loneliness.  And till then He can bring you a mate.  But don’t ever, ever let go of God, even if you find someone else to love.  

I think I am writing this for a friend, or an acquaintance.  He just lost his wife, she died.  He may read this or not.  But I think he is lonely and is fighting the urge to sin.  To drink, smoke, or to do something else.  Who knows, but he is coming to my mind to pray for him.  

I think I am writing this for a couple of beautiful ladies I know.  You use men, as substitutes. You want love, but you let someone take that which is Gods, and you give yourself away….You cheapen love.  By not honoring yourself.  And first and foremost God.  

I think I am thinking of another lady, who is so lonely, that she tries to find it in other people, by pleasing them.  But they treat her shabbily for it.  I think she has given up on finding love.  But I think he is just around the corner.  

I know this could be you or me, or someone else, but if we don’t identify the loneliness, and even repent for rejecting God from our hearts, we cannot win.  He has to be the main cause of our love.  He has to be front and center, to spare us, to save us.  To ensure our salvation.  

We have to trust God, release the loneliness, and not trust our own judgment on matters like this when we are struggling.  

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding Proverbs 3:5.  

I pray for all of us.  Because I know what its like, I grew up lonely.  I grew up, struggling to find my way.  Trusting people, who hurt me.  Trusting even those in the body of Christ, those that were not mature, but actually were a pawn of the devil, to destroy the plan of God in my life.  

I myself, see the results of my own sins, that I acquired because I was lonely.  It grieves me that it affected me so…

Its been a long time, since I have been lonely.

I am just so grateful for my husband my son, and one or two true friends I have.  That I am not lonely, why?  

Some might even see, that I purposely do not get to close to some, because I embrace what I have with Christ, and they have to prove love to me, because I won’t allow my affections to be used.  

For the sake of loneliness.  I know how valuable I am now.  I know, I am a good person, a nice person, because of Christ.  I respect myself, because I make sure, in fear of God, I respect HIM and His truth.

Because of His truth!  But I have learned I do not give myself away.  Or to throw my pearls to swine. Or to sin, to fill any void.  

Its not worth it, now when I know how precious my relationship with my God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit….

Because Christ is my greatest friend.

I hope this blesses you or someone.  I know the Holidays are upon us, but Christ can be with us every day.  Seek Him friends, fight the good fight of faith.  Loneliness will pass, just don’t give into sin, to fill that void.  Nothing can take the place of Christ.

Much love, in Christ,
