STOP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2If you don’t stop looking for love in all the wrong places, the end result of your life will be trashy….Strong words, but truth, please wake up!

I really feel such a strong desire to write about this.  And when I do, I know, its from God Almighty.  So, I pray, my experiences, this that, what I am about to share with you, helps you, to realize, God does not want you looking for love in all the wrong places, as well.

I am older now, my experiences, have taught me many things.  But I learned, and I learned the hard way, that one should:  

“STOP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES.”

Please allow me to elaborate.  

Right now, I am not looking for love.  I have a wonderful husband, and son, for over 30 years, we have been married, content, and in love, and we have our son, and so I am not looking for a mate.  

But when I was single, when I was growing up, I made many mistakes and had terrible judgment in this area.  I looked for love in all the wrong places.

I had low self-esteem.  I grew up, with my mom, raising me.  I had a father, I knew who he was.  He was a good man.  But he and my mother, did not get along, and were divorced, when I was just a child. 

So, I did not have that father figure to guide me.  

I have written about this in some similar posts, as my secret to true love.  But, I truly believe this.  That many of us, can get so lonely, so desperate for companionship, acceptance, a need to fit in, with others, that we can look for love in all the wrong places.

And I am not just talking about intimacy, or finding love, but just even in relationships, with friends, groups, etc.  We can look for acceptance, and actually compromise, who we are, because we can get so desperate.  It will distort your judgment. That you can even look for it in alcohol, or drugs.  Don’t do that, it will just make the problem worse, so that you cannot have a clear head in these matters.  

And I will elaborate on that as well.

But I know this worked for me, and years ago, after trial and error, I realized I had to change my method, or my approach to finding love.  I wanted true love. I went to God.  

He told me I needed to repent for my sins.  He showed me what He did on that cross for me.  He counseled me.  You know, He is my greatest friend, counselor, therapist, and adviser.  Theres none like God.  He is not imaginary.  He is very real.  He helps me, and helped me then as well.  

I began searching for truth, from my King James Bible.  And anyone that knows me, knows, I do not recommend any other word. Because it is not changed, or corrupted, as scripture tells us not to do.

Anyway….I began to see His ways, are not our ways.  The way of the world.  

The way of the world looks at love, as something cheap.  Its not.  Love em, and leave em, take what you want, thats not holy, and thats what you get.  Something that is not precious, something that is used, and thats not how God intended it to be for us.  Because He did not create us to have “trashy” spirits.  

So when I saw this, that love is not free, in that regard.  I began praying for the right mate.  I determined, that if God brought me a mate, I would do things His way.  Not mine, or the way of the world.  I promised Him, I would do things His way, and I do try.  

When I met my husband, I laid out some rules.  Because I liked him. And I did see potential.  But I did not want to ruin it with sex, or short changing myself, to try and please someone.  Who might, just take pleasure, and then leave.  Anyway, like they say, why buy the cow, when you get the milk for free?  

So, I told this wonderful man, I met, I wanted to do things right.  The way of the Lord.  So, he listened, and that gave him, respect toward me. 

Well long story short, a few months later, he asked me to marry him.  We got married, by holy matrimony, and we are trying in the way of the Lord, to live happily ever after.  

Has it been easy? No not always, but we work at it, we cherish each other, and honor each other.  Because we honored God to wait.   Because we did wait, and we honored God, we have a supernatural bond, that cannot be broken.  

Now, because I am older, I want you to see, by my experiences, that you can have true love, but you can also see, by what I share, that you need to stop looking for love, in all the wrong places.

I am also talking about just fitting in.  Or having friends.  I know myself.  I am a pretty loyal person.  But I have not always had that returned to me.  Right now, I just have a couple of people, that I call friends, that I love, but people change, and I have seen that in my life.  So, I don’t always trust that.  People can come and go…..

And, I don’t rely on people, to fill a void for me.  That void, is only met, as I seek God.  As I pray, as I read my King James Bible, as I stay away from any kind of sin.

I don’t even rely on family.  But I am very grateful for my immediate family.  That I have now.  

But when I say that, I am talking about other family relations.  See, it was just me and mama.  Daddy passed away first, even though, he did not raise me, I knew him.  He provided what he could.  Mama raised me, but life was hard on her.  I had no brothers and sisters.  I don’t even have family on any side, that communicates with me, besides an aunt.

So, I have adopted people in the past, loved them, like family.  But they abandoned me.  Well, like I said, people can change.  

But I also now look at what people represent.  Do they compromise values?  Do they respect themselves?  Do they lie?  Are they mean?  Do they have integrity?  I am careful now not, to just be a friend with anybody, any more.  I value myself that much, that if someone wants to be my friend, they have to be for real, in having some good values.  ….They have to prove it, to me, now.  

Any way, I feel like there is someone, I am talking to.  Someone, who wants to fit in.  And you are about to compromise yourself, or values, that make you special, in Christ.  Don’t. 

The other day, because I am a Conservative Christian, on social media, someone told me something, and it kind of hurt my feelings, but it made me realize the truth too, because I was supporting something.   This someone told me; you will never fit in with them, because you are Hispanic, and you may agree with them, but they will not accept you.

And that stung.  Because I am an American.  I have legal rights, as an American.  Born and raised here, with indigenous roots.  So….I know who I am.  I am fairly educated, even though in some areas of that, I do lack, because I did not go to college.  

But I realize, even in some Christian circles, I will never be accepted.  By some.  And I am not the kind of person, that looks for race, as my outlet.  So, I don’t use it for, or against anyone either.  But some do.  

But it made me realize, I don’t need to go looking for love, in all the wrong places.  Or even in political circles.  Or even in the body of Christ.  In fact, sadly there are those in the body of Christ, who have hurt me the most.  

I have tried, to be accepted, even in my writings, as my gift.  And hoping, doors would open for me, and they have been shut.  Why?  I don’t know?  Is it the race card, I don’t know, but I know, by some, I will not fit in.  My writings, publishers, have turned away.  If people share my thoughts, thats great, but I don’t ask any more.  

So, I don’t try and second guess any more, because life is too short, to keep banging on doors, that just won’t open. And I don’t compromise by flattery to have those doors open either.  Though, I am nice, polite, I don’t beg. 

I don’t go looking any more, for acceptance, or for favor, or to fit in.  I don’t need drugs, or anything to be a comfort.  

I am content, with what God has given me, in my family, and in Him.  No, I wanted more, in this life I live.  But I see I did reap, what I sowed, in other ways, but now, I don’t care to try, to please people. 

Yet, I see so many hurting, lonely people, that I have compassion for, and the love of Christ rises in me, to want to help, but I also know, in all honesty, we reap what we sow.  

If I could sit a young woman down, and talk to her, maybe she could understand. But since I am not in a position to even be in that “circle” maybe what I write, here, could help her, or him, not to sell yourself.  Not to give yourself away.  

There are valuable attributes, to claim, when you respect yourself. And, no matter where you are, you do not have to give yourself away, to be a part of something good, or great.  

Now, I know God has taught me this, to respect myself, but it did come with some heartache.  But I know, where ever He may lead me, I don’t have to look for love.  I don’t have to beg people to accept me.  I don’t have to compromise my values, in Christ, for acceptance, or to be a part of something.  

I don’t.  And I will not.  

Please just know, you need to “Stop Looking for Love in all the wrong places.”  Don’t take anything to fill that void, clear your spirit.  By not polluting it, or your body. Go to God, He will fill that void in your life.  He knows what you need, He does not make you suffer, just to suffer, but He will correct you, because He loves you. And so suffering does sometimes come with correction.  

Ensure your salvation with Christ.  And I would tell anybody that.  Hell is real, even on earth.  Even if you were a Christian at one time.  Rededicate yourself to Christ.  

Repentance, always clears the slate.  Talk to Him, He is your greatest friend.  You don’t need to beg anybody, or compromise yourself to be with people.  You may long for it, but when God closes one door, He will open another.  

And maybe thats where I am at right now, because I see some doors closing, even now, that I won’t elaborate on, but I am so hopeful, for just a new beginning for me and my family.  

But people will not always be happy for you.  Nor will they support you, because they do not see the value in you, because they don’t see the value in themselves as well.  Some people will purposely try to hold you back.  But you don’t have to give them that advantage over you, if you do things the way of the Lord. 

So move on, and let God guide you.  Your heart will mend, if you do things His way.  Your peace, will be fulfilled, and you will find your heart mended, and that void will go away.

Stop looking for love in all the wrong places…

Just remember this.  God is love.  He is Holy.  Love, real love, can only be fulfilled by Him, and through Him.  Anything else, sorry to say, is not pure, its not good, its not worthy of you losing your soul over. Anything else, could be counterfeit.  If He is not in it.  For you would be missing, the love God could give you.   

BELOVED, LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER:  FOR LOVE IS OF GOD: AND EVERY ONE THAT LOVETH IS BORN OF GOD, AND KNOWETH GOD.  HE THAT LOVETH NOT KNOWETH NOT GOD; FOR GOD IS LOVE.  IN THIS WAS MANIFESTED THE LOVE OF GOD TOWARD US, BECAUSE  THAT GOD SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON INTO THE WORLD THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH HIM.  

I John 4:7-9 King James.  

I hope this helps someone.  Feel free to share this, or to comment, below.  I will gladly pray for you.  

Blessings, in Christ,  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. This book brings attention to the behaviors, one may have that can contribute to a curse. But by Christ it can change into a blessing. A must read for someone wondering about generational curses etc. And why we do some of the things we do….

Funny thing about life, things don’t always stay the same way. Sure you might be optimistic, one moment but the next day you don’t feel that joy, or constant level of being secure, or confident, or even sure of whats next.

But God made us to depend on Him. And without Him, it just does not work. I know it in my life.

Thats the way God made us. And sometimes, you think you learned a lesson in life, and then you go and do the same dumb thing over again. That could be sin, or it could be just that you take for granted grace, that is extended to you. And God needs to correct you.

The wonderful thing is, God has made a way through Jesus Christ. HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND LIFE. John 14:6. And sometimes, when your not sure of the path, or the lessons of life, you need THERAPY.

Therapy, that comes from Gods Holy word. The King James Bible. I love Gods holy word, just for that. No other word will do, because they are not holy.

I cannot even count the times, I have found an answer, or a sense of God speaking to me, to counsel me, or to show me, my sins, or mistakes, in His Holy word, my King James bible.

There are wonders, and secrets, that can get you back on the right track, so you can fulfill your journey. For by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5. And that includes, the mind, the soul, the spirit, the body……

You see none of us are righteous, none of us. We all need God. But it is His way. Not ours, that works.  Just ask Him…..

AS IT IS WRITTEN, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE.

ROMANS 3:10.

THE WISDOM OF “BALANCE” IN OUR MIND AND LIFE


Balance….Where do we relate to that?  Or the wisdom, of being balanced?

Politics relate to either the right or the left.  When describing the affiliations of my great country, the United States.  And it is easy to see, that both groups, are off balanced.  In a lot of ways.  Though, I myself, tend to look at ideals from the right.  As a conservative person.

One must always search for balance in our own personal lives, and in our own way.  Searching for it, from experiences, teachings, habits, etc.  But I have found, there is only one way, that one can obtain balance, and that is Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life.  And no one, can come to God, but by him.  John 14:6. He has brought balance to my life.

The wisdom of God, in knowing how to “balance” ourselves, our situations, our time, our money, family, jobs, and more then anything our relationship with God, can only come from having a relationship with God.  Through Jesus Christ.

Life is hectic, and so many of us, can barely catch our breath.  To some, it is like a treadmill, and you cannot seem to get off.  You get up, go to work, come home, make dinner, clean house, attempt, to be with your family, for a few sweet hours, go to bed, and start all over again.

But in the time we are given in each day, we are called to make time for God.  We are called to pray without ceasing.  I Thessalonians 5:17.  That can be done, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, but it is so special, if you make a place and a time to do it.  That special time between you and God.  It takes real stamina, in many situations to try and juggle our time, and to balance out our attention, in many matters.  Thats life.

But as I share with you, on this topic of “balance”  I also want you to be able to relate it to your thinking.  And your thinking about God, and who he is, and also who you are in him.

Sometimes, when I listen to people, or hear their thoughts, I see, how unbalanced, their lives are.  Some turn to crutches, to be their balance, in addictions, to substances, drugs, drinking, sex, food, whatever, and this is not healthy.  It causes one to be unbalanced.    Holding onto the past, and past hurts, that can cause someone to be unbalanced.  Talking about the negative, instead of the positive, indicates an unbalance.  So many things can contribute to being unbalanced.  But one must see, they need God.

And how they need God.  How we all need to know, who we are in Christ.  How in Christ, we are made new.  How we become, a new person, through him.  That we are created in his image.   But some shun God, and when they do, they are closing the door, to the great things, God could do with their lives.  They are unbalanced.  They won’t receive their healing.  By not knowing Gods word, and his truth, this would cause anyone to be unbalanced.  Thats why, a commitment, to seek God through his word, will cause one to have a balanced life.  Because truth, will take the chains off of one to see, who they really can be in Christ.

My desire, and I commit this to God in my own thinking, and prayers, is that “Lord, I pray, my life is “balanced” in your ways.”

So that means, from time, to time, I have to study myself, as well, to see, if I am approved unto God a workman, a person, who is not ashamed, who is rightly dividing his truth. II Timothy 2:15 STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN THAT NEED NOT TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.

So, how does one rightly divide the truth of God, so their life is balanced?  It comes with prayer, and knowing Gods word, by meditating on it, by seeking God for this balance.  For only He can bless someone, to be effective and balanced.  His word tells us, that He does not like a false balance in our lives.  PROVERBS 11:1  A FALSE BALANCE IS ABOMINATION TO THE LORD: BUT A JUST WEIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT.  WHEN PRIDE COMES THEN COMES SHAME:  BUT WITH THE LOWLY IS WISDOM.

So, my question is, do you have pride when it comes to the matters of balance?  Do you think you can handle it on your own, without God?  Or perhaps, you are one of those people, who only seeks God, when you are in trouble.  Having pride, is off balance.  So, is only seeking God, when you are in trouble.  Do you see the comparison?  The balance is off, in both of those situations.  Because one should be seeking God, in prayer at all times, and reading his word, searching for God, at all times. Pride, and disobedience to God, in any form, can cause our lives to be off balance.

The key to living a balanced life, I believe, is in trusting God, being obedient, being loving to him, and to others, and to remember, life is a gift from God.  What we do with our lives, is our gift back to God.

One of the gifts God has given to us is rest.  If someone is not rested, and they are continually going on and on, they are burning the candle at both ends.  God talks about resting, on the seventh day.  This day is a time, to seek God, and to rest.  If it spent on anything else, the balance is again off.  God places his word, in our lives, to seek him.  He has established principles, that are put into effect, for our benefit.  But if his word, is just gaining dust on a bookshelf, you will never gain true balance.

Everyone, has their own cross, to carry.  We all have things we have to deal with and how we handle those situations, I pray, comes at least for me to say in my own life, is God, I need you to help me.  I need you to balance this out for me.  So that my thinking is clear, and I am reacting by your love, and grace, not by the law, so I am off balance.  But by who I can be, in Christ.

I need wisdom, and balance, and that only comes by the fear of the Lord.  Knowing He is God, who controls my life, and the destination of my soul, after I die.  He is able, in everything, and in anything, that concerns me.  Submitting to God, resisting, the devil.  Realizing, I need to let go of pride, or anything, that would stop the plan of God in my life.  Bringing my sins, to the cross. Not doing anything about this, will cause me NOT to be balanced.  So, I have to look at his word, and like a mirror, it will reflect who I am.  FOR NOW WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY, BUT THEN FACE TO FACE:NOW I KNOW IN PART, BUT THEN SHALL I KNOW EVEN AS ALSO I AM KNOWN.  I Corinthians 13:12

Do you remember, when Christ called his disciple, to walk on the water?  If he had not had the fear, or the trepidation,  and instead, had faith, he could have accomplished that.  He could have walked on the water, and Jesus, would have held his hand.  He could have walked on water, balanced.

And as I conclude; I want you to examine your own thoughts.  Whether they are good or evil.  Weigh them.  Do they balance out?  If they are not based on God, and his word, they would be evil.  That goes back to the word again. WHO CAN SAY, I HAVE MADE MY HEART CLEAN, I AM PURE FROM MY SIN.  DIVERS WEIGHTS AND DIVERS MEASURES BOTH OF THEM ARE ALIKE ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.  PROVERBS 20:9-10. You are open, to evil, even though, you may not realize it.  And your thoughts, will submit to the devil, because you have not made Christ your protection.  Christ can be your shepherd.  And protect you. You can have the mind of Christ.  (Read I Corinthians 2:16)

And, I know, this may sound harsh, to put it in this perspective, but it is true, and it goes back to the fear of God. THE FEAR OF THE LORD TENDETH TO LIFE; AND HE THAT HATH IT SHALL ABIDE SATISFIED, HE SHALL NOT BE VISITED WITH EVIL.  Proverbs 19:23. No one wants evil to visit them, in any way.  So I implore you go to the throne of God.  (Below is my Prayer of Salvation.)

We have to move, ourselves, from that place of who we are, in the natural, but believing, who He is in the supernatural.  Little by little, we can do it.  We can balance ourselves, to grow, to be the best we can be, because of who He is.  It is a balance, that we must take one step at a time.  But holding his hand through it.  You can walk it.  You can walk the tight rope of life, one step at a time, not falling, but holding onto God, his truth, his love, and compassion, and you can walk, the walk God intended for you.  In your spirit, in your mind, in your thinking, in all ways.  For He is the way.  Balanced.

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez


FOR I THE LORD LOVE JUDGMENT, I HATE ROBBERY FOR BURNT OFFERING, AND I WILL DIRECT THEIR WORK IN TRUTH, AND I WILL MAKE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THEM.  ISAIAH 61:8

Father, my Prayer of Hope….as I seek you, I can find balance, for it is to keep you at the center of my life.  In my thinking, my soul, my spirit, in my love.  In all things I ask for balance, to have discernment, of your truth, and ways.  Lord, I submit myself to you, to know who I can be, with Christ within me.  In your sons holy name, our Lord.  Jesus.  I thank you, and praise you for this.  Let this overfill, if anything, let me express always how grateful I am to the point, it brings you glory, and honor.  Tipping the scales of anything else, to bless you my Lord, for being my Lord and savior.  Amen

ADDICTIONS~HOW DO YOU NUMB YOUR EMOTIONAL PAIN?


Addictions, I can write about them, and share with you, “Just My Thoughts.”  Because I have been there, and done that.

It is in the past tense, that I write this.  Because as a young woman, I found myself caught up in a few addictions.

 Smoking for one, and drinking, and other forms of substance.  Desperation, hopelessness, fear, loneliness, a sense of panic, can cause anyone to fall into any kind of an addiction.  You just want the pain to go away.  That emptiness.  That sense of despair, that no matter what you do, it won’t go away.

But it can.  For there is one name higher than any other.  That is Jesus Christ.

Life is hard, no one is going to deny that.  Even when you have everything going for you.  But lets just clarify something, at the time, I participated in my addictions, I did not have everything going for me.  But, I do now.  I have Jesus Christ.

That really was the difference, to who I could be, and who I was.  I was not able to find direction at an early age, and so I did what everybody else did.  Or at least, what most of my peers did, or even some of my family members did.  And, that definitely excludes, here for the record.  My mom.  She did not drink, she did not smoke, and she lived a clean life.  But she was still tormented with her fears etc.  Anyway, growing up hearing about her fears, did not help me either.

So, I had some baggage.  I had struggled with a few things, in my youth, that well, I don’t need to specify here, but the bottom line is, I hurt emotionally.  I was a mess.  I was also very rebellious.  Maybe, you will see that in you as well.  But, I did not want to heed authority, nor, would I see the err of my ways.  Till one time, I believe God put the fear of him in me.  But thats another story….

So getting into addictions, to numb my pain, or so I thought, led from one thing to another, in sin.  Here in retrospect, as I think about it, one sin, can lead to another.  Thats why, even here, if I can make you look at yourself, and give it to God, then you may be delivered from a consequence, far greater than the sin, you are already in.  For the wages of sin, is death.   Romans 6:23  FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH BUT THE GIFT OF GOD, IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD.

Death….Thats a strong word here, but it is true.  Have you ever thought, because you are not of a sound mind, and so caught up in “me, me, me,” that you could hurt someone as well?  Our courts are filled with drunk drivers, who have taken the lives, of someone else, because they believed the lie of the devil, to numb themselves.  And they got in their cars, and drove, and killed others.

And the devil is a liar.  And he wants you to fall further and further away from God, and the plan God has for you.  For in your mind, he will tell you there is no hope, he will tell you, take advantage of the situation, he will lie to you.  And if you don’t know his tactics, you will fall for it in whatever shape or form it comes to you, because you do not know the truth, to set you free.  That is why even here, I warn you, seek God, seek his truth, go to your Bible, and call on the name of Jesus, for he is able to deliver you.  And then, bring it to the obedience of Christ.  CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRING INTO CAPTIVITY, EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5

For your pain, emotionally, is coming from your head.  From all the garbage you are viewing, seeing, believing, and in your head, it is manifesting, into this sense of loss.  Your thoughts, need to change, so you can change.  Thats why even here I tell you take it to Christ. Get the mind of Christ.  For you are the temple of God, he can dwell in your heart, and bring peace, joy, and love.

So, I hope, and pray, you will take my advice here, and “Just My Thoughts.” and consider what I am telling you is truth.  For the truth, will set you free.  It will deliver you perhaps, from something that is keeping you in bondage.  Spiritual, and even physical bondage.  You see, we reap what we sow.  If we sow, unto ourselves, sin, we reap it.  If we sow life, we reap that.  So, if you really want to be free, you need to see Jesus Christ, is the way, the truth, and the life.  He came to give us life, abundantly.  But the devil wants to take your life, for he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  He wants to destroy your life.  So, by participating in any addiction like drinking smoking, and other drugs, you may think you are numbing your emotional pain, because you may escape it for a moment, what you really are doing is contributing to your death.  Your emotional and spiritual death.  Which could lead to an early physical death.

Spiritual pain, is not a bad thing.  Sure it may hurt, for a while.  But if you deal with it, with Gods help, and understanding, then you can overcome it.  And who God loves, he corrects.  That may not be pleasant either.  But if you go through the correction, and the overcoming of your bondage….Who knows, you may even learn some empathy, or compassion, or boldness, like me, who will just flat out and tell you in his love, you are better than that.  You do not need to throw away your life, you can overcome this, with the help of God, by obeying him, and by seeking God, for a better life.

But the main thing, is you will learn to take your pain, for again life is hard, you will learn to take your grief, sorrow, loneliness, etc to God.  He can fill that need, for he has promised, never to leave you or forsake you.  Hebrews 13:5. You need to know this, so you can deal with your issues.  God is with you.

Addictions, can come in many forms, but the key is knowing, by the standard of God, what is right and wrong.  By knowing God, and his word, you will learn the difference.  There are many scriptures that talk about drinking.  That wine is a mocker, well any drug, or substance, that controls you, will mock you, it will mock your life.  And usually, I give the scripture references, about that, but you need to do the searching in Gods word.  I did.

I will say, as well, that when we grow through things, without, the help of a substance, or an addiction, even to food, we can become strong.  We can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us.  And whom the Lord sets free is free indeed.  I am.  John 8:36  IF THE SON THEREFORE SHALL MAKE YOU FREE, YOU SHALL BE FREE INDEED.

Praying you will be too.  This may be your only chance.  Somehow, you came across my blog, and you read these words, but they are truth, they are life.  Take it to the obedience of Christ, and be set free.  AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.  JOHN 8:32

And as I conclude, just know this, any kind of pain you are in physical, or emotional, God can heal, nothing is impossible with God, and He is so good, and kind in his mercy. Just know this, nothing is impossible with God.  For by his stripes we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5, and Luke 1:37.

Just my thoughts, Elena Ramirez

A PRAYER OF HOPE….

Thank you Father, for setting me free, from myself, from the devil, and from my addictions.  Thank you for showing me, how to have the mind of Christ, by your word.  By what Christ did for me on the cross.  Thank you for setting me free, for truly, I am free indeed.  Lord, I pray, for the lost person here reading this, fearful, caught up in the addiction, and the sin, of the bondage.  Lord, break those chains, take those generational curses off of them.  They do not have to be in bondage, like perhaps, a family member was or is.  Lord, let this message, be multiplied, even by setting someone free by this, so they can share the message of Jesus Christ, so they can set others free, by what Christ did.  All we have to do is take it to the obedience of you my Lord, and we can be delivered.  Hallelujah!!  Thank you Lord, for your grace you extend, in your mercy.  In Jesus name.  Amen

AN ANOINTED APPOINTED TIME TO HEAR FROM GOD AND TO GO TO GOD+


I feel like the Lord, has given me a word to share with you all.  Concerning, the timing, of when to pray to God.  Where the anointing is evident, and when we should go to God in prayer, to know, that we know, he has heard. And more then anything to expect an answer from God.

It reminds me of the time, of the evidence from the Bible, in John Chapter 5, that there was a man who had an infirmity for over thirty eight years, and he was laying by the pool, waiting for the angels to come and stir it up, and then he believed God would heal him.  If he could just get into the water, when it was stirred.  Jesus asked him….Will you be made whole, in other words, do you believe, you can be made whole?

There are times, we may receive something, from the pulpit, or from another believer, or hear something in the word, and it may stir something up in us.  Just like that water, and we can get our blessing, our healing, our answer from God.  We can also read something, from the word etc.  The same difference.  It may be anything, that will resonate, but we recognize it as truth.  Let me say that word again.  It is TRUTH.  It comes from God, and He says, whosoever believes, and does not doubt…..Mark 11:23-24  FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU THIS MOUNTAIN, BE THOU REMOVED, AND BE THOU CAST INTO THE SEA; AND SHALL NOT DOUBT IN HIS HEART, BUT SHALL BELIEVE THAT THOSE THINGS WHICH HE SAITH SHALL COME TO PASS; HE SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAITH.  THEREFORE, I SAY UNTO YOU, WHAT THINGS SOEVER YOU DESIRE, WHEN YOU PRAY, BELIEVE THAT YOU RECEIVE THEM, AND YOU SHALL HAVE THEM.

I think in many cases, we may receive that truth, or that word, but we just don’t know what to do with it……It touches our hearts, when we are able to hear our Fathers voice, but we do not do anything with it.  God is trying to tell you, and me, right here, and right now, that when we hear that word, immediately, that is when we should go to God in prayer.  Wherever it may be.  Because at that point, our faith is stirred, to get an answer from God.

In most cases, we just may take the information, or the truth, like we do, when we hear a teacher or we get informed etc.  We silently sit there, and ponder on it.  And the response within, may just be ahhh, or hmmm. We may rationalize it from our intellectual level.  We will reason with it.  And then the thought, will flee.   God does not want it to flee from you.  God does not want you to reason it.  He wants you to believe.  He wants you to pray in that moment.  That holy moment of truth.

God is trying to get us to a different place, by submitting to God first.   He, (our Lord) I see, is trying to develop our faith.  I wrote briefly last night on this, but it has to do with our trust.  Our trust in God.  The scripture He is bringing to my mind, is Trust in the Lord, with all your heart, and incline not into your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5. Thats where your faith, is developed.  When you just believe God, his ability, because of who he is, his word, his truth, and you do not reason with it, but you believe.  Your faith, is developed, and that pleases God.

And, because God is a spirit, a supernatural being, and the word tells us that we worship him in spirit and in truth, at that moment, that we hear the good word, we are being stirred, at that moment go to him in prayer.  JOHN 4;24 GOD IS A SPIRIT, AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.

LISTEN by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.  Listen with your spiritual ears.  When you hear the truth, this is when you must be obedient, in your faith, and your trust.  Go to him, and speak to him.  Knowing you have heard his voice, and in this moment, he wants to hear from you…..This is an anointed time to go to him in prayer.  It is the stirring of the water.  Its Jesus asking you, will you be made whole.  Do you Believe?  It is the Holy Spirit, speaking to your spirit.

Remember you are the temple of God, and He resides within you.   I CORINTHIANS 3:16 KNOW YOU NOT THAT YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, AND THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLS IN YOU? You know his voice, you know when it is truth.  Because He lives in your heart, especially, if you have given him your heart.  And even if you have not, he is able to speak to you, because he created you.  He is calling you in that soft, faint voice, that knows Truth.  He has put a ‘TRUTH” mechanism in all of us.  So, when you hear that word of truth.  It is him telling you to pray….No matter where you are.  He is able to hear you.  Talk to him, about what you have heard, or felt, or received from that moment of truth.

God wants each one of us to grow, and I just sensed, the anointing, that is so there, when we hear that word of truth.  It is a special moment of timing, to get an answer from God.  But more then anything to know, in that moment, that is when you know, that you know, He has heard you.  That is the time, to believe, that you will get an answer.  Remember this time, of prayer, ponder on it, remind yourself, you heard his voice of truth.  And then, just wait….for the answer.

Blessings, with much love from Christ, in “Just My Thoughts.”

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Lord, this is a moment of Holiness, a moment of truth, that you have given to me, to give to your children as well, to me, but to share this.  To stir up our faith, to know, when we hear a word, in whatever form you may choose to reveal it, this is a time to go to you to go in prayer.  Its like a sign between you and us, so that we know, we can get an answer.  It is something that is ordained, and holy, and for an appointed time, such as this.  I just sense, you are trying to get us to look to you, to believe, to not reason, with our intelligience, but to trust you.  To trust you, develops our faith.  Lord, thank you for letting me share this word.  I feel so honored.  So grateful.  Remind us to pray when we hear that word, or see it, at that moment, because that is what you have called us to do.  Even to document it, or to journal it….HABAKKUK 2:3  WRITE THE VISION AND MAKE IT PLAIN UPON TABLES, THAT HE MAY RUN THAT READS IT.  FOR THE VISION IS YET FOR AN APPOINTED TIME, BUT AT THE END IT SHALL SPEAK, AND NOT LIE, THOUGH IT TARRY WAIT FOR IT, BECAUSE IT WILL SURELY COME, IT WILL NOT TARRY…..HALLELUJAH!  Let us be reminded, obedient, and trusting, to please you.  Thank you Father for the confirmation of it, even from this word, you put in my heart.  This is truth, I receive it, I believe it, and I myself, will change my habits to pray, in that moment of truth.  In Jesus name.  Amen

This link will give you more information 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.

FOR BODILY EXERCISE PROFITS LITTLE: BUT GODLINESS IS PROFITABLE UNTO ALL THINGS HAVING PROMISE OF THE LIFE THAT NOW IS, AND OF THAT WHICH IS TO COME.

I TIMOTHY 4:8

Wow….How deep and thought provoking this scripture is!   If you take it to heart.  The Lord, has been putting this subject on my heart a lot lately, and so as I explore it in obedience to him, I know it benefits me as well.  As I share it with you.  How to exercise faith?

Physical activity, and exercise is good for us.  We all enjoy the benefits of a healthy body, but what about the body of Christ?  Are we exercising our faith, into godliness?  I don’t see it lately.  I don’t see the body of Christ, actually exercising their faith.  I don’t see the body of Christ being very healthy.  Its like “sloppy agape”  Love that is not always there, even as a Christian, and when it is exercised, it is awkward, not prevalent, and certainly not demonstrated, giving it the power it needs, to be effective.

There needs to be a commitment.  An understanding, not to give up.  Trusting God.  Even, if it is not politically correct.  Even if others don’t see it.  One cannot give up their faith, to try and please people.  God is not pleased with that.  In Hebrews 11:6 we are told…But without faith, it is impossible to please him, for he that cometh to God must believe, that he is and that he is rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

I just sense and feel, that if we as Christians, who profess to be Christians, exercised our faith, there would be miracles, there would be salvations, there would be an abundance of testimonies that give glory to God.  Our faith, would be stronger.  We would encourage each other.  We would know, that we know, there is a God.  I don’t see many Christians activating their faith.  They may have a place in Gods Kingdom, but we are missing it.  I don’t want to miss it any more.  I want to see the power of God activated more so in my life, so I know, I need to exercise my faith.  To see the benefits of exercising my faith.

I have been in ministry for a few years now, and I know I am growing, as you are.  But there comes a time, in every Christians life, I believe, where God, will begin, prompting you, to start “exercising” your faith.  He will bring a situation, or allow even a problem, where you either will sink or swim.   If you sink, it is because you did not exercise your faith, if you swim, you are exercising your faith, you are keeping your head above water.  Well, God wants you to walk on water.  Just as Christ did.  Impossible?  No remember the scripture Christ said, with God all things are possible.  Mark 10:27.

So how do we tap into the possible things of God?  How do we do more then keep our heads above water?  I don’t know about you, but I long to see Gods power working in my life, in a great and mighty way.  Yes, I see his power, in me, and how He has changed me, and guides me.  But I long to see the benefits of my faith, in signs and wonders, miracles, that will bring glory and honor to him.

I pray, my heart is right in this.  Because to believe, you have to be in position, according to Gods word, to activate it to begin with.  In that same book of Mark 9:23, in the previous chapter, Christ tells us; Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believes.

The first key to exercise your faith, is to make a commitment to believe. To believe Gods word, to believe his promises, to believe, he is able to do far and above anything, we could expect in the natural, because God is supernatural.  So here are some Keys on believing.

1.  Read the promises and miracles of God.  Scriptures on believing.

2.  Claim the word of God, in prayer.  In other words, as you pray, pray the scriptures.

3.  Meditate on past promises of the Bible.

4.  When in doubt, catch yourself, and reprimand yourself, for not speaking or acting, like you believe.  Not in condemnation  or defeat, but in conviction, to get up, pull yourself by your bootstraps, and to make the commitment, to keep trying.

5.  Repent to God, for not believing, ask him, to show you how to believe, in faith.

I know, that I know, there is so much to this subject, so I will keep this updated.  And I will list the Keys to exercising faith.

So because, I want to see this, I am going to explore this subject.  I am going to write about it. I am praying for God to guide me in this, and since I am believing in faith, I know, God will reveal it to me in his timing.

So, if you are interested as I am, on this journey, and in the timing of the Lord, I recommend, you sign up and receive my blog, to get the updates on this.  Also share the e-mail blogs, you get.  There may be someone you know as well, who needs to exercise their faith.

I will categorize them in the title, by parts.   I don’t know if God will give me all of the components, right away, or here and there, all I know, is I am committed to write them as He reveals them.

So this may be a process of different timings.  And yes different writings.  For God may give me a different word pertaining to something else, and I must be obedient to write, what He places on my heart.

But keep your eyes open and watch.  I just sense, there is so much we can learn, and understand, by seeking God, by not giving up, by stirring up our faith, to exercise it, we will see the benefits of Godliness in our lives.

Just my thoughts, with his love,  Elena Ramirez

P.S.  I JUST FELT THE LORD PROMPT ME, TO ENCOURAGE YOU, TO WRITE TO COMMENT, AND TO ALSO ADD ANYTHING HE MAY ENCOURAGE YOU IN, TO BENEFIT THIS TO THE LIST, SO I CAN LIST YOUR COMMENTS OR ADD THEM TO THE KEYS.  TO HELP US ALL.

I WILL STAND UPON MY WATCH, AND SET ME UPON THE TOWER, AND WILL WATCH TO SEE WHAT HE WILL SAY UNTO ME, AND WHAT I SHALL ANSWER WHEN I AM REPROVED.  AND THE LORD ANSWERED ME, AND SAID, WRITE THE VISION, AND MAKE IT PLAIN UPON TABLES, THAT HE MAY RUN THAT READETH IT.  FOR THE VISION IS YET FOR AN APPOINTED TIME, BUT AT THE END IT SHALL SPEAK, AND NOT LIE:  THOUGH IT TARRY, WAIT FOR IT, BECAUSE IT WILL SURELY COME IT WILL NOT TARRY.  BEHOLD HIS SOUL WHICH IS LIFTED UP IS NOT UPRIGHT IN HIM BUT THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY HIS FAITH.  HABAKKUK 2:1-4

HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH….PRAISE BE TO GOD!!

My Prayer of Hope….

Father, Lord, I honor you, and praise you.  For who you are.  King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  I long to see your promises, fulfilled in my life, and others.  Guide me in this, so the understanding of how to exercise our faith will be revealed.  Anoint this message.  I ask please.  So there will be supernatural evidence of your power, my Lord.  According to your word, according to who you are.  Help us, now, I believe . I believe, you have just revealed the first key, and that is to believe. Simple. In trusting you, in speaking faith, not doubt, in making the commitment, to exercise our faith.  Lord, I ask that you bring this to my attention, so I may write about it, to bring you glory, to help your people, to yes, help me.  I will be obedient, to write it as you reveal it.  I thank you, and again, praise you.  How great you are my dear Lord.  In Jesus name, Amen

HOW TO SPEAK TRUTH (JUST MY THOUGHTS AND 7 REASONS OF TRUTH)


BUT SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, MAY GROW UP UNTO HIM IN ALL THINGS, WHICH IS THE HEAD EVEN CHRIST.  EPHESIANS 4:15

I just have to say this, as clearly, and as loudly as I can;

“Jesus Christ, is Lord and Savior.  There is no other name, that can save, like Christ.  He gave his life, so we can be saved, so we can avoid the consequences of hell.  By his stripes we are healed.  His truth, is alive.  He is love.  His blood cleanses, and washes our sins away.  No other religious, figure can do what He can do, and did for us.  He will save you, if you call on his name, and seek him with all your heart, repenting of your sins.  Your name, will be put in the Book of life.  And you will avoid hell.  By seeking him, you will find love, true love.  Peace, and joy, understanding….and forgiveness.  Victory….He will fight your battles.  He will make a way.  Your life, will change, so that you will know He has a plan for you.  But you will have to trust him, and his truth.”

This is truth.

When I do speak truth, I do pray, I can speak truth about who Christ is in my life, the difference He has made, and that I am changed, because of him.  That I know, according to his truth, the word of God, I know, when I die, I will have a place in his Kingdom.

This is truth…  But there are different truths, and different situations, concerning truth.  But not concerning Salvation.  Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6

So, the goal, as I write, is to be truthful in love.  When we speak any truth….

And, gee this one can be tough.  To speak truth, and in love.  I will just say it bluntly, so to speak in my truth.  But,  I do try to be patient, considerate of someone else’s feelings, and compassionate, and yes, I try to speak it in love.  But not my love, the love of my Lord Jesus Christ.  But this does not come naturally.  It does take practice.  Gods love takes practice.

Just because we may accept Christ, does not mean there is immediate transformation.  Yes, we know in the Lord, when we give our hearts to him, immediately our names are written in the Book of Life.  But, we have to renew our minds, our hearts, our spirits, by the word of God, to please him, and by doing so, bringing it to the obedience of Christ.

So, we have to get rid of our “stinking thinking.”  And that applies to speaking truth, and how we speak it, ever mindful of Christ, and his sacrifice.  If you are blunt, as I can be, it can be difficult to speak in love.  So, I know, this does take practice.  I grew up in a home, where words were just spoken, and they flew, here and there, and then one was left to pick up the pieces.  And sometimes, it was hard to go on….But, because Christ has taught us to forgive.  I learned that, so I could be healed.  And hopefully, if I hurt someone, I also ask for forgiveness.

I have had people speak some terrible things to me, and even Christians, who may even speak truth, but are not at all sensitive, as to how it sounds, or what is implied.  And is it really truth?

Look the bottom line, is, if you are going to speak truth, you better make sure it is truth, or you will be just a pawn of the enemy, who is the accuser of the brethren.  And if you do speak it, please do not do it in a way, where you are accusing, even if it is truth.

When I am in a situation, and I have to speak truth, I pray, that I would seek God first.  Taking even if it is just a moment, to say, Lord, help me in this.  Help me to speak truth, but not hurt someone in the process.  Help me, to walk in love, and kindness.  Help me so that my words, are not accusing.  Or rude.  Lord please help me.

There are many times, when we have to speak truth, and for different situations.  But, I would rather speak truth, then ever lie.  For to know truth, and to speak truth, comes from your heart.  When I speak of my relationship with Christ, this is truth.  When I speak about what bothers me, this is truth.  Do I want to ever hit someone on the head with truth, no.  I want to be tactful.

I want love, the love of Christ, to be the main ingredient, in my speaking of truth.  There are times, when confronted, there are opportunities, where you need to speak truth.  And then I do pray for the truth to prevail.  I do pray for the boldness, to speak it, loud and clear.

This is a very profound subject to ponder on, and I could go on and on.  But if anything, that I bring to the forefront, in speaking about truth, I want to emphasize…..  Yes, speak truth in love.  Do so mindful of Christ, but never, ever lie, in your truth.  Lying comes from the devil himself.

And that is just something, we need to be aware of, and very seriously, I tell you, be careful not to pick up, or continue in habits, of lying, or the truth, will never set you free.  I tell you this, in love.

Here are some scriptures, to remind you about truth….

1.  What should we do about truth?

ZECKARIAH 8:16

THESE ARE THE THINGS YOU SHALL DO; SPEAK YE EVERY MAN THE TRUTH TO HIS NEIGHBOR, EXECUTE THE JUDGMENT OF TRUTH AND PEACE IN YOUR GATES.

2.  Who is truth?….

✝ JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE;  NO ONE COMES UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.

3.  How can anybody be guided by truth?

HOWBEIT, WHEN HE, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH IS COME, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH, FOR HE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF HIMSELF, BUT WHATSOEVER HE SHALL HEAR, THAT SHALL HE SPEAK, AND HE WILL SHOW YOU THINGS TO COME.  JOHM 16:13

4.  Should someone ignore truth?

NOW I PRAY, TO GOD THAT YOU DO NO EVIL, NOT THAT WE SHOULD APPEAR APPROVED BUT THAT YOU SHOULD DO THAT WHICH IS HONEST THOUGH WE BE AS REPROBATES. FOR WE CAN DO NOTHING AGAINST THE TRUTH, BUT FOR THE TRUTH.  II CORINTHIANS 13:8

reprobate |ˈreprəˌbāt|nounan unprincipled person (often used humorously or affectionately).• archaic Christian Theology (esp. in Calvinism) a sinner who is not of the elect and is predestined to damnation.

5.  Why do we speak truth, about Christ?

BRETHREN, IF ANY OF YOU DO ERR FROM THE TRUTH, AND ONE CONVERT HIM;  LET HIM KNOW, THAT WHICH HE CONVERTETH THE SINNER FROM THE ERROR OF HIS WAY SHALL SAVE A SOUL FROM DEATH AND SHALL HIDE A MULTITUDE OF SINS.  JAMES 5:19-20

6.  What happens when we know truth?

AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.  JOHN 8:32

7.  Truth is my choice, is it yours too?

I HAVE CHOSEN THE WAY OF TRUTH;  THY JUDGEMENTS HAVE I LAID BEFORE ME….PSALM 119:30

Just my thoughts,  in Christ’s love,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, I pray, your truth will prevail, in my life, in my heart, and in everything I do.  For your glory, for your namesake.  Let love be the guideline, in my truth, that I speak, and live, to be a reflection of you.  In Jesus name.  Amen
