A Christian, really does need to keep his or her guard up.  There are some sick messages out there, and they are every where.  It is so sad, that more moral, or thoughts of integrity, are not available to see, view, and ponder on.  But, it is a fight, I suppose between good and evil.

Evil.  Yuk, just even writing the word can leave a bad taste.  Spiritually, that is, because if you ponder on something, you are eating it.  No, I remember what God says, even from the beginning.  Do not eat from the tree of good and evil.  It was a commandment, Adam and Eve broke.  They should have gone to God, which we can still do, and pray, but symbolically, the message is the same.  Do not sin.  Don’t eat from the tree of evil, eat from that which is good.  So how do we guard ourselves?

Well, we really do have to be in tune to what God says.  His holy word, a word not corrupted.  A King James word.  We have to be in prayer, and we have to have our armor on.  The armor of God.

There are many “subliminal” messages, that tell you its o.k. to sin.  Its ok to talk to other spiritual entities, to believe in ghosts, to have sex, to be dishonest, they are every where!  etc. etc. 

You just have to know what is right and wrong in the sight of God. 

Just yesterday, I saw one, at the movies, where they turned it into a cartoon, but it came straight from hell.  Where a dark spirit, kept having to fight to make a point.  And I thought a kid, a child, would be entertained with that.  And as I looked in the audience, I was seeing adults take it all in.  I just shook my head, and told my husband the subliminal messages of that sort comes to distort all that is good.  

It really is sad.  What is going to happen, that we may not even be able to turn on our televisions, or watch a movie, with some kind of filter, to quench those subliminal messages?  I don’t know.  

All I know is I am aware of them.  And not everything goes.  Part truth, part lies, do not bring innocence back.  It does not make you feel that good warm, and fuzzy feeling.  That sense of good.  That sense of moral integrity.  

Those kind of subliminal messages, say its o.k. to be bad.  When I am looking for a good movie to watch.  I either have to look for a very old movie, or one that has a good story line, without the implication of some kind of sin.  I look just at the menu of what movies that are playing, and even in the titles, the subliminal messages are so bad, that you cannot help but see the goal in our society is to pervert.  It almost seems like an agenda.  Or a conspiracy.  Pollute the minds of people.  And maybe that thought is not too far from the truth, because I wonder where are the systems in place to keep people safe from some of this crap.  

I really believe that if we take enough of this crap into our systems, we can sin.  We can, pollute our own spirits.  

I know, just by writing this, I am just tapping into the atrocity of this.  But we need to have to see.  We have to monitor our kids, and ourselves.  There is so much filth out there, that it does pollute the way people view things.  No longer, do we see wholesome shows, like I used to when I was a kid.  Those that have a moral message, to be good, or to pray, or to seek God, when in trouble.  When was the last time you saw some disaster movie, where they prayed.  No, they do not. They may sing “row, row your boat”, to get their minds off of the danger, but its sad.  (I won’t name that movie.) 

Subliminal messages, should be good too.  Try looking for them.  And if you cannot find them, try being an example of a subliminal message that gives glory to God.  That gives the example of moral, honesty, and integrity.  If not for someone else to see.  For yourself, to see as you repent.  As you seek God.  To live a clean life, an honest life, a life that has discernment to depart from evil, and that one that someone can say, that person really is a reflection of Christ, in all ways, including being a good example.  

Just my thoughts, today, blessings and love,

 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candle stick, that they which come in may see the light.  The light of the body is the eye, therefore when the thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.  Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.  If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.  Luke 11:33-36.  

Elena Ramirez 

 

Lord, my prayer, today is help me to know what your word says.  Help me to know your heart.  Help me, help my own heart to be pure, and to think good thoughts.  Not evil.  Not filthy.  Not cold, or mean, or hateful thoughts.  Help me to see the subliminal messages, so I can have discernment between good and evil.  So I can depart from evil.  Help me not to look at any vain thing, or anything that is perverted.  So I do not accept these things.  Lord, help our society.  Help others, to see that we are what we eat.  And that is spiritually as well.  Lord, I repent.  Because even last night, after watching some junk on television, for lack of anything else to watch, I felt cold in my spirit.  I do repent.  Forgive me, and help me to change my viewing habits, on television, or by what I read, or view.  So I do not accept anything that offends you.  And so I can grow.

In Jesus name.  Amen

Let me say who I am, and then you can make your own determination, but I pray, you see the truth, I am trying to bring.  I want to bring some balance.  For understanding.  This is only my perspective.  But I say it as a “free” Christian  Hispanic American.  I say it, boldly, because I have freedom of speech.  

I am a Christian, American Hispanic, fourth generation, a “legal” citizen of the United States.  I state I am a Christian, first, because I am so grateful for what Christ did for me.  I do not take my salvation lightly.  I am grateful to Christ, for taking my sins on that cross, and so I want to serve Him.  I serve Him, in the gifts and callings He has given me.  

I am a writer as a Christian, and an American.  I may express some things, about my heritage, as a Hispanic.  And there is a great legacy, from even my forefathers, who have come into this country, and yes even served as Americans.  And let me add, I love my race!  

But I refuse to play the race card, in trying to motivate someone, or to make a statement.   With my race as the foundation.  I think it hurts us, as a race.  I think it hurts us even in our nation.  Yes, lets celebrate each other, and the gifts we have, in our heritage, and ethnicity.  There are so many different things we can offer each other.  But right now, as a writer, I need to say, its wrong, what I see in our nation.  

Lets be honest, there is discrimination.  There are those, who are not taught to love one another.  Or to accept other people. They do not know, that God says He is not a respecter of persons.  He loves us all.  But we have to see this, in His way, not ours.  

And maybe this may let them see another perspective.  You pray people see the injustice.  But you also see, its their choice.  You may not agree with it, but with the laws that are implemented, one should be able to have freedom if you do it right.  You don’t have to like me, but don’t discriminate because you just don’t like me.  

But what I see right now, in this time of history of the year and month of July, 2015, my country is confused.  

I see hate crimes, and people, justifying it in the name of a flag.  I see, two sides, and I see, both have good points, so I don’t condemn, or put down someones opinion about a flag.  I just wish, people loved each other.

I see laws implemented from our supreme court, and people who have Christian beliefs, are now being penalized, for their beliefs.  In not having association or wanting to have business dealings with those that would contradict their beliefs.  

Are we a nation now, that cannot even pick and choose, or reserve the right to not have business dealings with people who actually offend who we are in Christ?  Some are being forced, by laws, that go totally against their conscience.  

If you saw a bank robber, a thief, for the sake of business, would you have dealings with them?  Probably not.  Because it would go against your ethical, and moral conscience.  

Yes, we are to love one another, but we are not called to be with those that ask us to do something that challenges our own belief systems.  When I look at these people, who now are demanding rights.  I see, they are trying to make a statement as to who they are, and what rights they want.  But that is their choice.  It is as if, they want to be their own “race.”

But….

Why should someone else be penalized because they don’t agree with it, or “contribute” to their belief system.  Or be a part of that race?  Its like all these things if you look at it symbolically is an issue of race.  

But there is segregation, why be forced with someone who does not agree with you?  Because freedom to others, are being denied, when you change the view by political agendas.  

Segregation even in business is o.k. I am not going to sue someone, because they want to go to church together as a race.    Yet someone is being penalized for wanting to be separate from that kind of behavior.  

Our forefathers, implemented laws for that freedom, or religion.  And now it is challenged.   Why are we departing from the foundation of who we are in this nation?

Yet other religions, that come to our United States are given grace in this, but we as Christians are not.  And asking to change things.  Why?  Why should we change our stance, when this is who we are? 

I see a presidential nominee, who made harsh remarks, about Mexico.  And yes, he was harsh, but his motivation, was to protect the borders.  But instead, many are offended by him.  And what I see, is people denying him, freedom of speech.  And they have made a boycott against him.  

I don’t understand, why we as a nation cannot come together and be united, and not love one another.  But if you try to do it politically, its not the same as the way of the Lord.  

Its like everybody wants their “race” or their agenda, upheld, but there is no understanding for those who don’t want to be a part of it.  Some of these agendas, are not legal, to be asked for.  

Why is their confusion about upholding the security of our borders, compared to making it a racial motivation?  And calling it discrimination?  And playing the race card?  Its not about race, its about securing our borders, by the laws that have been implemented.  

So my point, is that we need to find our way.  

Truth, and being united, should come with mutual respect.  Whether you agree with someone or not.  

I certainly don’t want to push my Christian belief on any one, but I certainly do not want to be denied my freedom of speech either.  Or my right to have religious freedom.  Or my right for freedom of ethical matters, to be imposed on me.  By someone else’s agenda.  

But using the race card, to make my point is not right, its not ethical, nor does it promote unity.  

I want to achieve success, by my hard work, but I don’t ask for you to give it to me, because of my race.  I ask God for it, because I really do try and want to please Him first.  By keeping His commandments, by yes the golden rule, to love one another.  But I know even in my bible, it says mark those, who are disobedient to His truth, and have nothing to do with them.  

Christ taught us to hate the sin, but love the sinner.  

We have all come here to this great nation, to have freedom, but don’t deny someone their freedom, because you don’t agree with them.  Know your rights, in the sight of God.  And the law of the land.  

But you have to do it by the laws of the land, as well.  You have to do it, with the mind set, that we as citizens, should have rights.  Our veterans should have top priority, and we cannot take care of the world.   Because of a race, or even a religion.  Our borders, need to be protected.  

Our country is at stake right now, and I see so much division, that is being spoken in the name of being politically correct.  That I think we have lost our moral compass, that our freedoms are being challenged, and that love is being thrown out the window.

I hope in all that you may think, that you would find the balance.  Because we all live here, but we need to take care of one another, and be in unity as a nation.  Divided we fall.  We have to do things legally, in the sight of God and our nation.  

Call me a legalist, if you want but I am not hitting you on the head with my bible.  But I will, and do try and uphold the laws of my King James Bible, and I want to see the laws of the land, especially concerning our borders held up.  

I am grateful for grace.  From God, but we need it here too, so thats why I say let us bless God, and not just ask Him to bless us, as a nation.  

But we have to get “law” and order activated, or we as a nation, will go under.  Spiritually, and personally, as individuals, and as a nation.  

Oh well, this is my thought for today.  Blessings, and love, 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….

BUT THEY AND OUR FATHERS DEALT PROUDLY, AND HARDENED THEIR NECKS, AND HEARKENED NOT TO THY COMMANDMENTS.  AND REFUSED TO OBEY, NEITHER WERE MINDFUL OF THY WONDERS THAT THOU DIDST AMONG THEM; BUT HARDENED THEIR NECKS, AND IN THEIR REBELLION APPOINTED A CAPTAIN TO RETURN TO THEIR BONDAGE:  BUT THOU ART A GOD READY TO PARDON, GRACIOUS AND MERCIFUL, SLOW TO ANGER, AND OF GREAT KINDNESS AND FORSOOKEST THEM NOT.  NEHEMIAH 9;16-17.

So who are you appointing as your captain?  And can you see even in this scripture how good God is?

Rebellion, will hold you back.  And when I say hold you back, I am talking about growth, I am talking about blessings, and being in right standing with God.

So many times, when I was young, I was rebellious.  And it did hold me back.  I fell through the cracks, because of it.  Yet, no one reached out to me, with love, to tell me about this trait.  I want to do that now.  In love, and yes truth.

Because many times, we don’t learn, until we experience something.  And when we do, after a time of trial and error, we can see our ways.  But it truly does come by “submitting” to God.  But if I can spare someone some heart ache, I pray you take this to heart.  

And even here I want to thank God, and give Him praise for teaching me, and loving me, and yes forgiving me.  

King James scripture tells us; Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7.

There are so many times, I have tried on my own to do something, but what was missing, was that I was not submitting to God, completely.  Its like lip service.  You say you are a Christian.  But if your heart is not right before God, and you have traits, or characteristics, that do not reflect what God says, that is rebellion.

And God hates rebellion.  The devil was rebellious toward God.   So if you see that in yourself and you want to get right with God repent.  Because it is a characteristic of the enemy, and you do not want that in you.

And yes, the fear of God, which is very scriptural should come into mind, soul, and spirit, to remind us that the fear of God is healthy, for us in submission, and  to see even that characteristic of rebellion does not come from God, but yes the devil.  

Fearing God, makes you obey.  Because you love God.  Fearing God makes you realize there are consequences to doing it His way, or not.  And if you do not, you will pay the price.  Some how some way.  Its a principle, that comes into affect.  For we do reap what we sow.  Some would call it karma, but that is not a scriptural word.  It is reaping and sowing.  Galatians 6:7.  BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  

Sadly, I do see that characteristic, of rebellion among many Christians. We are known by our fruit.Luke 6:44.  For every tree is known by his own fruit…….

Oh some may be polite, and there are those who are rude, but some may just outright reject truth, when you bring truth to them, but they dismiss it, and pick and choose….but there is always that word that comes up, “JUDGING.”  

And instead of seeing that perhaps someone can see that rebellion, or see that you are on the wrong path, you may get offended.  Instead of being humble in the sight of God, and yes letting go of pride.  Which goes hand in hand with rebellion.  

There are some of us, who are not false in our walk with God, and God has brought them to us to help us, but if you reject them in rebellion, you are also rejecting Christ.  THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, THE GOD OF ISRAEL; GO AND TELL THE MEN OF JUDGAH AND THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM, WILL YE NOT RECEIVE INSTRUCTION TO HEARKEN TO MY WORDS?  SAITH THE LORD.  JEREMIAH 35:13.

And the devil has taken that scripture, of “thou shalt not judge”, twisted it, and made it to be offensive, when really God may be trying to correct you, and get you on the right path, and wanting to bless you, but you reject truth.  You are rebellious.  So you hold yourself back and the blessings.  

I have a few friends, on social media, who I have tried to bring truth to.  Concerning the King James Bible, and I have tried over, and over again, to show them the many discrepancies from other Bible versions, and they may be polite, but they do reject truth.  And then there are those who have tried to fight me with this, and yes rudely.  

I am not judging them, thats not my job.  God will judge though.  What I am trying to do is bring them this truth, in love, so they can get on the right path.

I have and will continue to try and show this in truth, that these versions are corrupt.  That many scriptures are missing from them, that God has warned us not to add, change or delete word.  

And yet when I have they reject this truth.  And it is rejected, this is rebellion.  

Yet all, I am trying to do is get them on the right path, to hear from God, to get an anointed word, a holy word, for any need they might have.  For really it is our manual to life.  Before we leave earth.  The King James bible has been preserved for over 400 years.  

Maybe you are reading this by chance.  But I truly believe it is by divine appointment.  God has his ways, and His timing.  Think about the people God freed, by Moses.  They murmured, and complained, and God called them a stiff necked people.  And because of their rebellion, their murmuring and complaining.  They did not find the promise land for 40 years.  They ran around in circles.  

AND THE LORDS ANGER WAS KINDLED AGAINST ISRAEL, AND HE MADE THEM WANDER IN THE WILDERNESS FORTY YEARS, UNTIL ALL THE GENERATION, THAT HAD DONE EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD WAS CONSUMED.  Numbers 32:13.

Even here we can see how important the fear of God is.  If only they had obeyed…..All of these things are attributed to rebellion.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to waste time, concerning Gods plan for me, or what could be.  

I know my rebellion has held me back.  I do fear God, more then ever, sometimes I read this Holy word, and I tremble, in fear, because one can miss it.  But I know who I am in Christ now, more then ever, by studying Gods word, by knowing what He wants.  And the King James is holy.  But more then ever, I pray to be right in His sight.  For His will, for His glory. 

There is a lot to being rebellion, according to the worlds ways, and the world will tell you do what you feel is best.  What feels good.  But that could also be rebellion.  If it is not in obedience to God.  This is why I will not use another bible version, because in the rebellion of these publishers, they rebelled, and corrupted Gods word, when He said, do not change or add to it, or delete it.  

YE SHALL NOT ADD UNTO THE WORD WHICH I COMMAND YOU, NEITHER SHALL YE DIMINISH OUGHT FROM IT, THAT YE MAY KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD WHICH I COMMAND YOU.  DEUTERONOMY 4:2

Also read Read Revelation 22:18-19 from the King James that one could lose their salvation.  One could lose their right to the Holy city by doing this.  In rebellion to changing His Holy word.  God has said He will breach his promises.  And thats if we do not keep our part of the covenant or our promises to His promises.  And it goes back to the example of what happened to those who rebelled.  See Numbers 14:34.  

In any event….I have a long ways to go still to be the best, I can be in Christ. But every day I will try to perfect it in Christ.  In His excellence, not mine.   By His standards not mine.  From my King James Bible.  There is no place for rebellion in my life.  Not after I really see what Christ did for me.  

So my question, is there rebellion in your life?  And can you see, you need to go to the throne of God, and repent of it, and obey?

Your growth and blessings are waiting for your answer.  

In service to Christ in love, Elena Ramirez

Have you ever had company over, and gave your “clean” house a thorough cleaning?

I liken this to our souls as well.  You see, when you know company is going to come over, and visit, say for some kind of event, or holiday, you take the extra time, to shine it up, dust, sanitize, and make your home presentable, so your guests, will find it in the best condition.

Recently for Labor Day, we had family over.  We are not one for entertaining, but because it was family, we wanted to bless them, and so we did extra, and more when it came to our cleaning.

Now mind you, we keep a clean house, anyway, we are organized for the most part, and we keep up with daily chores, washing dishes, sanitizing etc.

But I have to admit, dusting, is not one of my priorities.  In fact, I hate to dust.  It still gets done, but it is not done constantly.

But it made me think, about our souls.  I don’t think many of us, want to admit this, but I truly believe, even the best Christian, has to maintain your soul, and clean up some things.

Its called growing, it is called repenting, and it is necessary, for your own growth, to every once in a while do some reflecting, and pray, and ask God if there is something that has to be cleansed?

You see, just as we had guests over, Christ visits our hearts, and souls as well.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Christ to find something in my soul, that would “grieve the Holy Spirit.”

I just know myself that well, when I am feeling off, maybe cold, or indifferent, that I have to run to the throne, and seek my dear Lord.  I need to repent, I need to be humble, I need to cry to Him, and say Lord, I don’t understand.  But help me, help my faith.

I guess this is why I have written my two books, about faith, and curses, because I so want to please God, and I want to help others as well, but I know, how things can affect me, when I am not right with God, or I am off.

There are so many ministries, that do not address, this, in fact, they are into self, or pleasing yourself, and that is so wrong.  We have to make pleasing God the priority.

So you have to do some reflecting, you do have to discipline yourself, you do have to ask God, and “try” to do that housecleaning.  Yes, God will make the difference, and wash you by the blood of Jesus, but you have to check out your robes of righteousness.  Is there a stain, from a thought, a sin, a place, where hopefully you did not let the devil in?

You see, these are our souls.  We have to maintain them.  The Bible tells us to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling.  Oh the fear of God is such a good thing.  It keeps us out of trouble.

Yes we can all use help, in cleaning, as if our own homes.  I would love to have a maid, but since, I don’t I have to do it.  In this photo, my husband and son stepped in, and helped a little.  That was so nice, and I was so touched by their help, I took a photo of them.  God bless them….

A good friend, may help you, counsel you, and even extend grace, when it comes to matters like this.  To help you as well.

But it is our responsibility, to dust ourselves off, and maintain our relationship with Christ.  Friend, don’t take your soul for granted, even if you have accepted Christ.

Yes, you were given a clean garment, a robe of white, when you made Christ your Lord, and savior.  And He is so wonderful, He will give it to anyone, who calls on Him, and believes.  But after that you better watch it, and know for you walk in this earth, and the enemies goal is to deceive you, and to cause you to stumble, and yes fall.

And if you have not friend, accepted Christ I implore you to seek Christ.  Make it right with Him.  This is not about religion, this is about knowing the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  Make it right with Christ.  This is your soul, and someday, when you die, you do not want to have known you had the chance even by reading this, and not making it right with Christ.  Turn to Him, seek Him, repent, and make Him your Lord and savior.  You will never regret it.  I am so glad, He found me, but I made Him my Lord and savior.

I am a firm believer in repenting, daily, I suppose its like my daily dusting.  But I do it because I so want to please father, and like I said, I just know when something is off, and when I do this, my joy, my sense of peace returns.  God knows, when our spiritual houses are clean, and I want Him to see it clean, and acceptable for His presence.

Blessings, and love, Just my thoughts.  Elena Ramirez

My soul cleaveth unto the dust:  quicken Thou me according to Thy word.  I have declared my ways, and Thou heardest me:  teach me Thy statutes.  Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works.  My soul melteth for heavings: strengthen Thou me according unto Thy word.  Remove from me the way of lying:  and grant me Thy law graciously.  I have chosen the way of truth; thy judgments have I laid before me.  I have stuck unto Thy testimonies: O Lord put me not to shame.  I will run the way of thy commandments when Thou shalt enlarge my heart.  Psalm 119:25-32

I love the King James scriptures, and I try to tell you in love, how important it is to use a King James, but there is no way any other version, can speak this truth like this, the way God intended it to be, and the anointing of this scripture speaks volumes.  In fact, this entire chapter, talks about the word, and His law, and His testimonies.  I recommend reading all of Psalms 119 from a King James Bible…it is long, but it so ministers to my heart when I read it concerning Gods word.  Dust off your bible, and read it.  Why would anyone want less?  And to deny yourself Gods food for thought, is starving yourself.  Another thing perhaps, to write about another day…..

Just another Thought…..

Pride will steal your blessings, and I need to write this.

There are so many Christians who are Christians, and believe in Gods word, but when an offence comes in, or a disagreement, what happens, is that pride takes over.

That is one thing, people do not understand, and when they do that, they open the door to the enemy. I have seen it time and time again, and I take it to heart, to know, because this is one thing, that offends God. He does not bless pride.

Why does it steal your blessings?  One reason, because it stops love.  It stops the flow of love, and God is love.

Whenever any of us, stop love, we stop God, from working in our lives.  We are stopping the blessings, and we are stopping forgiveness, and being disobedient.  It automatically brings the enemy into the situation legally.  We are told to give no place to the enemy to submit to God, and then the enemy will flee.

But He giveth more grace.  Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.  Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  James 4:6-7. 

These are principles, laws, and parameters God has placed in each one of our lives, and no matter how right you are, (I have learned this) that it turns into a stumbling block, that steals your blessings.

No one, would ever purposely, stop God from blessing them, who would be foolish to do that?  But unknowingly, when you have pride, with anybody, you are doing that.  And when you do that, you are using a worldly sense of dealing with something, instead of doing something the way of Gods Kingdom.

Its like a child, who gets mad at someone, and instead of letting the love flow, to be understanding, compassionate, instead one gets a stone wall, of intellectual reasoning.  By being bratty, unresponsive, and snubbing someone.  It shows.  Those kind of tactics were done when we were kids, and you either grow, or you keep doing it like a child.  Who has not learned how to deal with this, and see the way to get out of pride.

Lets look at that more so, because this is the way of the world, in some cases.  Being realistically intellectual in reasoning with one another.  Here as an example, you may be able to relate to this, but say someone tells you, that you have offended them.  Or that something you did, deserves to be looked at, to understand.

They are sad, they are wounded, or they may even just be adamant to say, hey that is wrong.  So what do you do?  You give a reason, you explain maybe even calmly, or with a sarcastic attitude, thats the way it is, and thats why you did what you did.

Instead, of seeing that person, actually has a llegitimate  point.  And instead of you recognizing it, acknowledging it, you may either ignore that person (pride) or just cut them off.  You have forgotten manners, good courtesy, of just even recognizing the problem.  

Stop for a moment, and look that this person, has actually made a point, and for whatever reason, if it is other factors, they need you to see this problem.  Don’t brush them off, don’t snub them, don’t ignore their thought….Let love in, and don’t let pride steal your blessings.

Now, I know every situation is different, but there is something to be said, about the way, we communicate, and the way, we either work it out with or without pride.

Having pride, will not acknowledge its wrong doing.  It will not admit a fault, it will not go that extra step to make a wrong right.  And this my friend, is what I am trying to get you to see.  I am trying to extend grace to you, to see that when you are wrong….

Go to someone, tell them perhaps, you were wrong, in your evaluation, or in the method of handling something.   What you are trying to do, is to continue the flow of love.  (Bringing God into it)  For when you do that, you are letting go of your pride.

You are letting go, of your right to be right, and even if you are right, you are saying.  I love you, this does not mean just because we disagree, that we should be at odds with one another.  You are not hiding the discretion, you are exposing it to love.  

You see, if we saw how God works, and the enemy works, we would be able to stop problems, curses, and even sin.  Love never fails.  Pride will stop love, it will stop your blessings.  Let go of that anger, to be right, or to have the right to be right.  It does you no good.  It needs to be brought to the obedience of Christ.  So His love can continue.

See this my friends, is something to know for pride will really steal your blessings.  And the enemy in his twisted sense of bringing confusion, will bring part truth in any matter, to look like a lie.  Or to bring pride.  Don’t be a part of pride.  Forgive, communicate, and be gracious, in your communications.

We all need to work on this, because it is on-going.  I hope this brought some perspective, so you can get on the right path, and in doing so learning a tool of diplomacy, with compassion, understanding, to stop pride.

Just my thoughts, with love, so hoping that we all can grow.  So   praying, that when differences come, even in my own life, I am praying, that I will not have pride.  You see, I grew up, trying to reason sometimes, and when I saw pride in a loved one, and I was rejected, I knew what it was.

That is the worst feeling, to have, because of someones pride, and when life goes on, and it is not resolved, it brings a curse.  Love could have healed that, but pride got in the way.  Don’t let it get in the way of your life.  Stop it, God can change it.  The following link is one of my popular posts on pride, just click it, and praying it also helps you.  

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez

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.

Just my Thoughts, Elena Ramirez
