I am excited that Spring has sprung.  I am hopeful, and I see that Spring is Gods way of making progress.  Christ told us, He is the vine, and we are the branches, and without Him, we can do nothing.  I do not want to do anything without Christ, and Spring reminds me, to try and grow, to change, and yes to have progress.  I love progress!

I AM THE VINE, YE ARE THE BRANCHES:  HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME, AND I IN HIM, THE SAME BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT:  FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING.  JOHN 15:5  

Each season that God has created, can bear understanding to who He is.  And how each season can also affect us spiritually.  Spring is a time for new beginnings.  New life.  Summer is a time where things grow, and prepare for the harvest of Autumn.  Where things again evolve, and die off, and prepare for winter.  And in winter, though, it is cold, and life has stopped growing, God still provides.  I see His hand providing in each season.  

When Spring returns, life does begin again, and the world awakes.  Maybe that is why I am hopeful, right now, because I do see how things can change in this season.  I am awake to the possibilities that progress can happen.  His way! 

Christ is new life.  The sacrifice that He gave for us, is very near and upon us, to remind us of His love.  But it had to be His way, for our salvation.  For resurrection came at a great cost, His life for ours.  He gave it all.  And I see, how through His resurrection, we are guaranteed new life.  If we do grow with Him, if we take His love, and see with eyes of compassion, His own suffering, we may be able to understand our own suffering.

I long for a new season. Right now.  Winter was tough on me, for a few reasons.  And I have struggled and yes suffered with this time of no progress.  Yet there was in some ways, progress. I have to be positive and acknowledge this.  But I am human, and this winter season of my life, has made me sad.

 I admit, I am ever so trustful in Gods word, and I believe in the anointing, and holiness of my King James Bible.  I believe in the power of God, but I also see small glimpses of His promises.

I see, in my heart, how there is a time for everything.  As Ecclesiastes says.  And right now, symbolically, in this time of Spring, I want to plant new seeds.  I want to clean the garden of my heart.  I want to be hopeful, and I want to give God glory through it all.  I want to believe with a stronger faith, that progress is mine.  God has a plan, and I trust that plan!

Progress, that may be simple, and which may even be in baby steps, but is proof I am on that road with Christ.  For He is the way, the truth, and life.

Christ, promised us life abundant.  He did not say, it would be easy. But those seasons, of Autumn, and Winter, and yes Summer, have shown me, at least in my life, it has not been easy.

It may not be easy for me, but it is easy for God.  And I ask for easy, because of who He is!  I have had enough of life being hard.  And I cannot compare myself to anyone else, nor do I want to, because we all have our own struggles, but I want to grow!  I want fruit, that expresses who He is in my life.  And it is easy for God, that is why He is God!

For, yes I long for my life to produce a harvest.  A harvest in my soul, that gives glory to God.  A harvest for my family, that the seed, of who I am in Christ, would be passed on, from one generation to the next.  I don’t know my families history, or the things they did, or who they were.  But, I want whoever I am in Christ to be someone who gives glory to God.  To break off curses, perhaps even generational.  To begin blessings.

To touch other lives, perhaps your life.  To speak truth, in love, to see with discernment, obstacles, and hindrances, so I can tweak them to get right with God, so He can remove anything that would stop who I am in His love.

Yes, I am hopeful, for progress.  Even if it is just a simple thing.  But, I must be grateful, in this time of progress.  I must take time to soul search, and see what I can do to please God.  Is it repentance, or just having a better attitude?  Forgiving someone?  Walking in Love.  A big one for me, is avoiding arguments, or battles that are not necessary?

Is it really taking Gods word to heart, law with grace, and being observant of His word, and obeying?

Whatever it is I have to do, I want to move on.  I want to make progress.  And I do see, that Spring is Gods way of making progress, in the world He created.  And I am in awe of who He is, just looking at all of His creation.  I want to see more of His creation, and I pray, that I can.  Because of who He is.

I want to be creative as well.  I want to be the best I can be in Christ.  I want abundant life, and yes, I want to make progress, and all to the glory of God!  Do you see it too?  Are you hopeful?  I hope so dear friends, with Christ, we can do all things, through our Lord, who Strengthens us.  (paraphrasing Phillipians 4:13)

Blessings, Happy Spring to you, on this first day of progress.

IF CHRIST IS IN YOUR HEART, THEN LOVE SHOULD BE EVIDENT….


This morning, the Lord, woke me up with this message on my heart. And first and foremost, I need to say, this is for me as well, as it may be for anybody else.

It is not meant to point the finger at anyone, or to condemn. If it convicts, to see the truth, then that is a different story, but again, my intention is not to bring this out by my judgement. God is not a respecter of persons. What He expects of one, He expects of us all, if we are to call ourselves Christians.

The thought, my Father, brought to me, is the message of Love…..

For if we are Christians, if we are called in Christ, we are to have as fruit, the evidence of Love. Christ told us, that is how people would know, we were the real deal. That we were Christians, because love would be seen. Because then, He would be seen….

Why is it, that it is not often seen? Why is it, that we may only love, those who love us? Why do we not practice it? daily, or with every opportunity that we get? Why is the love not evident? Why do we holdback?

We need to be aware of this. We need, to make the effort, we need to know, “practice makes perfect.” His ways are perfect, His ways are true. Today, and everyday, we must put LOVE on the forefront of our minds.

With kindness, with compassion, with mercy, putting away any jealousy, any competitiveness. Without judgement. Oh yes, so many times, we do judge. But if we could only look beyond what we see, and know, by the root of whatever, we see, love was not there.

So, we must make up for it. We must be the love, that is missing…
Oh dear one, do you see it?

Today, I want to encourage you, to be friendly, to be kind, loving, sweet, not self thinking, and be giving, even forgiving, silly, and petty offenses. Be compassionate, knowing, that LOVE is the fruit, of our Lord.

Stir up your Love….Practice it, share it, and be a light that shines for Christ. If a mean spirit comes to you, bind it with love. If you are tempted to be evil, and mean, see that God sees you. And surrender this to his love…..We need to make ourselves visible, in love, and to the world. Or how can we minister? How can we show Christ in us?

Read this scripture. Quietly, without any distractions….

Meditate on it slowly, let it by the Holy spirit, whisper to you, and embrace it. Take it, chew it, swallow it…Let it settle in your heart, that this is truth, this is what should be seen. Take this as you would Holy Communion. His body, his blood….

BELOVED, IF GOD SO LOVED US, WE OUGHT ALSO TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER. NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME. IF WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER, GOD DWELLS IN US, AND HIS LOVE IS PERFECTED IN US. HEREBY KNOW WE THAT WE DWELL IN HIM, AND HE IN US, BECAUSE HE HATH GIVEN US OF HIS SPIRIT. I JOHN 4:11-13

With love, and with the thought, we need to practice love, so it will be made perfect in us.

“Just My Thoughts…..

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope and Honor

Father, help me as I seek you and praise you, to walk in Love.  Help me, to be prompted by your holy spirit.  Help me to love, as you do.  I need your help in this every day of my life.  Every moment, I need to be aware of your love, so I can be effective, but I can be an expression of you.  You are my greatest role-model for love, and I know I need help in this.  I sometimes, miss the mark.  But, with you, I can love, and meet the commandment.  To love, God, and to love others…in Jesus name.  Thank you Lord.  Amen

HOW TO GET UNDERSTANDING…..


Have you ever tried to communicate with someone, and they are so caught up in what they have to say, that they just don’t hear you? They cannot perceive the message, or the goal of the message, because they may pick up on one thing, and discard the rest of the thought?

I wonder how many times, we do that to God? And how He must shake his head, and just let us be? And He will let us be, for He is a gentleman. He never forces, anything on us. He always gives us choices.

He makes His word, accessible, and available, if we search for Him. He gives us prayer, to have access to Him. But, if in that prayer, and in that time, if we do not stop and listen, how do we expect to get understanding?

First of all, we have to be aware of this. It may very well be a “learned behavior” that we can change, by first of all recognizing, we may have a problem.

Changing your attitude, to recognize, that first of all, try, not to be so defensive, or to always having to spill the beans, in expressing, so to speak….You know God knows, our needs. He knows every thought….but are we listening? We may do that with others, as well.

And even with others, take a deep breath, and be a good listener. Practice makes perfect, and maybe if we are patient with others, maybe we can ourselves, grow, to be more understanding….And understanding of God.

Just my thoughts, with love,

How I long to understand God, and His ways. But I do know, I have to change my own attitude daily. A commitment, to try and listen, and to understand his ways…to please him.

Feel free to share this….maybe it will help bring some understanding, to someone, you are trying to reach…..

GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING, AND I SHALL KEEP THY LAW, YEAH I SHALL OBSERVE IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART. PSALMS 119:34

A Prayer of Honor and Hope…

Lord, by your Holy spirit, speak to me.  Give me understanding, and patience.  Help me to hear your voice clearly.  Help me to hear others as well, and to have a spirit, that is patient, to listen.  Observant.  Lord, not to tear up, but to build.  To bring you into the scenario, whatever it may be.  To know what to do.  To have guidance.  To grow….to change, to be the best that I can be, in Christ, and helping others along the way as well.  Lord, help me to have understanding.  I ask this in Jesus name.  Amen

TRAIN YOURSELF IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD


FROM ONE CHILD TO ANOTHER....

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO; AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  PROVERBS 22:6.

Yes, this is instruction, for all of us to raise our children in the ways of the Lord.  But what about you, who has not known God?  What about you, who has not been taught the ways of the Lord? Well did you know, even if you are old, you are Gods child?  Did you know, that you can be trained?

The Lord, has been putting this message on my heart, for a while.  And I believe, now is the time, to share it.  This is divine appointment, and God is calling you who has wanted a change, in life, but not able to know how or to approach change.

Do you see yourself as a child?  Or do you see yourself, as someone who has been beat by life, and you think it is too late for you?  You may even incline to think like the old adage, that you cannot train an old dog to do new tricks.

Well, like the commercial, tricks are for kids, and you need to know that you are a child, of the King of Kings.  Whether you see it or not.  He created you, and He created you in his Image.  And it is not too late, to get a breaththrough in life, and it is not too late to change.  But you are going to have to determine, that you have to TRAIN yourself.  Because no one else will.  Then when you see that, your eyes will be opened, and you can be fulfilled in life.

God loves you,  you are his child.  And He wants the very, very best for you.  But you have walked in darkness for so long, that now, that the light is coming to you, you may very well, turn your eyes away.  Because it is so bright, it is so much to comprehend.

But TRAIN your eyes, even now, by focusing on Jesus Christ, to hear this message, as you read this to come to you.  Gradually, but with great focus, keep your eyes on Jesus, so the light will not shock your system.  These words, are so deliberate, but I am writing as I feel it from the Holy Spirit.  You see, there is someone, God is trying to reach.  It is you.  And obedient to him, I write this.  You see, you have not TRAINED YOURSELF.  You do not know how to TRAIN yourself.  God wants you to stop, and recognize, you need to TRAIN yourself, by his word, by prayer, by the prompting of the Holy spirit.

Religion, or just a lack of  knowledge, has kept you from the Plan God has for you.  But, He wants you to forget these things, and know, that it is not too late for you.  Even though, you may have gone to Hell itself, in some of the things you have done, or even said, or participated in.  He wants to cleanse you, and make your life account for the plan he has always had for you.

Even here, I sense how much He has grieved because you have been given other opportunities, to turn to him, and you did not obey the call.  You did not, seek him.  You felt inferior, you felt ashamed.  You felt, like you were not worthy of God.  Oh dear one, that is a lie from the devil himself.  You need to understand this with your heart.  YOU NEED TO BEGIN TRAINING AGAIN, BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE!

Let me ask you this….Are you not tired of not getting anywhere?  Are you not tired of seeing any progress in your life?  Are you not tired of being tired?  Your spirit, has been numbed, by the pain, by the coldness of life.  You have tried to protect yourself, by turning off, not caring, not participating, in the things of God.  Thinking, and I know this is a prompting from God, but thinking, if you live like Hell on earth, you can overcome all obstacles, because others would also fear you.  Thereby protecting yourself from others, by being the mean, bad force, that you are.

Another lie from the devil?  For truly within your heart, is a heart, greater than your own anger, and coldness, that you have experienced in life.  Ashamed.  Do not be.  Christ is knocking on the door of your heart.  Let the Lord, take your anger, your hurt, your pain.   It is time, to TRAIN YOURSELF!!  No one else is going to do this for you.  But you.  You have to want to see this.  You have to want to know, there is something better for you.

Now look at yourself…You are a child.  You may even be old, and gray, and hardened by life.  But God can change this.  See yourself first as his child, and then begin  seeking him.  Begin searching for him in his word, the Holy Bible.  Find a church, begin going, get fed the word of God.  Watch Christian television.  Watch Pastors.  Forget that they may ask for money.  Look for those, who are teaching the word, and not asking for your money right now.  Train yourself….

This is the word, the Lord is giving me today, for whoever, will believe, will be saved.  Let that be you.  Train yourself, you are his child.  You will see the changes, they may be gradual, they may be immediate, but you will see the difference.  I know, he showed me, how to train myself in him.  But it began by seeing I was a sinner, and repenting.  It began by Praying the Prayer of Salvation.  (see my link below)  After you pray that, your eyes will be opened.  The light will not hurt you any more, and you can begin the process of TRAINING YOURSELF.  For God himself, will be your trainer.

Blessings, and Just my thoughts,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope

Father, with all honor, and praise in my heart, I thank you for teaching me, and training me.  You still are….I had to though, get to that point, where I released myself, for you to train me.  That is what you are calling someone now to do.  To be trained by you.  They think it is too late.  They think that one cannot be changed, that they are who they are.  But that is a lie from the devil.  Lord, I pray their spiritual ears are opened.  That their spiritual eyes can see, and focus on Christ.  Though the light is great, they may even feel inundated by the thought.  But help them, guide them, to see, to focus, to know, they are your children, and you can make that change, as they train themselves in the ways of you the Lord.  Help them, as you helped me.  In Jesus name,  Amen
