I SO ADMIRE WHEN SOMEBODY APOLOGIZES ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_0101I saw an example of someone apologizing today, and it released the other person.  It took the blow of it away.  It was not toward me, but it is someone I do love, and I saw how that person, struggled, because of the offense.  I could relate.  But after a day, the other person apologized, and released this person I love.  That did my heart good.  So good I am writing about it.  

I do, admire when someone apologizes.  It takes courage, it takes truth, a humbleness, an ability to throw away pride, and say, I am sorry.  I made a mistake.  I was wrong, please accept my apology.  

It seems like many do not know how to do that, any more.  It seems like pride, takes over often.  And to admit ones fault, they think is beneath them.  Or makes them look inferior.  But not to God, He sees….And He will judge. 

So many times, its not that one might not even have the right, to be offended, with someone, but its the way, they handle it. 

With either, grace or accusations, or even jealousy.   Thats the wrong approach.  Getting into someones business.  

Pride, is such an ugly spirit, that holds one back from apologizing, and it hurts us.  It really does.

I do have a forgiving spirit, I guess, because I longed for it so much, growing up, but grace was not extended to me.  And I know when people are gracious to me, or giving me the silent treatment.  It does tick me off, because I don’t react like that. To others.  

So I am mindful, that pride is not seen, by God or others. I learned early to be accountable, and not make excuses.   I have learned, Christ taught us to forgive.  But it also goes hand in hand, with this thing in being apologetic, and accountable.  

Yet, when grace is not extended to me, I do get put off, by people, who cannot even humble themselves, to be accountable, and say.  “You know what I made a mistake.”  They don’t make excuses, they just say I am sorry, and then go from there.

They don’t throw other issues in the air, they admit their wrong doing, and stick with the issue.

Being mature, being humble, to say, I am sorry, I am sure, is beautiful in the sight of the Lord.  

Stand your ground, when you are offended, but extend grace if someone really is sincere.   But yes, I do need to reflect in this, forgive.  You see, being unforgiving, is a poison.  And you don’t want that in your soul.  So forgive even if you don’t get an apology.

 I really do respect it, and love seeing it.  If someone apologizes.   That tells me, they want to grow.  They want to please God, and they realize, they had no room themselves, to act like they did.  

But to each their own.  I have learned, you cannot make someone do something like this, unless they really see the error of it.  

Sad thing is, because one never knows….

I would rather, apologize, and repent to God now, before its too late, before chances go by, before even leaving this earth.  

See we know when we are wrong or right, and if pride is telling us we are right when we are wrong.  Its called a a “conscience” and if you don’t get that red flag, you may be far out.  And you may need to do some major repenting.  Because you are hearing the wrong voice.  Thats not Christ.

Something to think about, “Just My Thoughts,” today….

Blessings, and love,

Elena Ramirez

SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT EVEN FOR THEIR OWN GOOD ~ START WITH GOD ~ THE FEAR OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


P1270072.jpg

SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT EVEN FOR THEIR OWN GOOD ~ START WITH GOD ~ THE FEAR OF GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

I have seen this a lot lately, no respect.  No respect, for boundaries, friendships, authorities,  our civil liberties, for life, for the unborn, for people, for anything, it seems like any more.  

There is no fear or respect of Gods laws and commandments.  For so many have thrown out His law, out the window, and think grace has covered it.  With this stinking thinking, so many have hooked onto, and they reject the law.  Thinking they are free from the law, in the new covenant.  Think again…  God does not flip flop!  He does not change.  He did not change….

THEREFORE THOU SHALT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO WALK IN HIS WAYS, AND TO FEAR HIM.  Deuteronomy 8:6.  KJV.  

There is no respect.  People say what they want to say.  They mock what they want to mock, and they don’t think of the consequences, for even their own good.  

People are not taught this, when I grew up, we were taught to respect.  I was.  Even if you don’t agree with someone.  Even if you think they are wrong.  There is a way to communicate, without being disrespectful.  Like yes, sir, yes, ma’am…..

I am so glad I was, taught this, because it taught me, to respect the fear of God.  I fear God.  I know, even in my own life, I have reaped things, because of my own rebellion.   When I see, that someone should know better, or they have not corrected even their own family, or friends, to respect others, by people I love, I am shocked.  

My own ignorance, or even like my mother would say.  My own stupidness.  Has taught me more then ever about respect.  Yes, oh for years, I was grieved that she told me that, but at this point, I honor what she says.  More then ever I see….I was stupid.  But stupid, can get wise.  

I know that too.  Its not too late if you stop, and see the error of this.  I respect who I am in Christ.  With all my faults, and believe me I know I have had terrible judgment in some matters.  I know that there are lines not to cross, in matters of respect.  With myself, and yes with others.  For my own good. 

See, what happens, is we do reap what we sow.  Its a principle, folks.  Like what goes up, comes down.  It just is a principle. 

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  GALATIANS 6:7  KJV.  

And when I see so much of disrespect, and even with people, I love, it grieves me.  It has to grieve God as well.  

And I am not here, to make light of this.  People need to see there are consequences.  When someone crosses a line symbolically, against somebody with disrespect, and even God.  He sees that.  He does not bless disrespect.  Vengeance is the Lords…

Oh our Lord, is gracious, He is merciful, but people forget how to repent to Him, and to apologize to others, and to respect authority.  To respect life, and it brings in sin, and destruction.  

We should all be fearful of God in this.  For our own good.  I am not going to get into the many details I have seen recently.  But….It has been a lesson in life.

But I see it, even as our country is so divided.  I see it, and I wonder what will we reap, in all this disrespect? Individually, and as a nation, and for our souls.  Because God is not mocked folks.  

YE SHALL DO NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN JUDGMENT:  THOU SHALT NOT RESPECT THE PERSON OF THE POOR, NOR HONOUR THE PERSON OF THE MIGHTY:  BUT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL THOU JUDGE THY NEIGHBOUR.  LEVITICUS 19:14.  KJV.  

And bottom line is, we reap what we sow.  Maybe you won’t see it now.  But it opens doors to the enemy.  Its his goal, to come, kill, steal, and destroy.  But you will see it for sure when you stand before Christ, when you leave this earth.  Because Christ could very well tell any of us.  “I never knew you.”  

AND THEN WILL I PROFESS UNTO THEM, I NEVER KNEW YOU:  DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY.  Matthew 7:23  KJV.  

It is iniquity.  Its sin, to have that spirit of rebellion, that is disrespect. 

So much, that it could determine, hell or heaven.  Nobody, wants to hear the hell and brimstone message, but its truth.  And that is reaped as well….

Well, I just pray, whoever reads this would have a good heart to heart, with God.  Because  if you start with Him, it will go well.  He will teach you, about respect, but it comes with the fear of God, and the consequences He speaks about in my King James word.  He corrects those who He loves.  

HOLD THOU ME UP, AND I SHALL BE SAFE:  AND I WILL HAVE RESPECT UNTO THY STATUTES CONTINUALLY.  PSALM 119:117.  KJV.  

Don’t you want to be safe?  I do, I embrace this scripture.  And all of Gods word.  See thats just it.  You take all of Gods, King James scripture, and connect the dots, and it makes sense.  But you know better to not embrace, these fake versions, so you won’t get blinded.  Because there are commandments there too, like Revelation 22:18-19.  kjv.  (Look it up) 

But if you don’t even sense the Holy spirit, prompting you. Or you mock, even me, as I warn you in love, well….. its sad, and I don’t wish bad to anybody.  

But I know there are consequences.  I know, we reap what we sow.  And I know…. Gods ways are not our ways, but we should very well stop and see what we are doing.  Or we don’t grow.  

If you have disrespect it may be, because you do not fear God, and we are commanded to fear God.

YE SHALL NOT THEREFORE OPPRESS ONE ANOTHER:  BUT THOU SHALT FEAR THY GOD:  FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.  LEVITICUS 25:17  KJV.  

But…You may very well, be headed to meet the fear of God.  And its a terrible thing to fall into the hands of our living God.  Without the fear of Him.  

IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD.  HEBREWS 10:31  KJV.  

Blessings, and love, with respect, reverence and fear to my God….

MY THANKSGIVING THOUGHTS FOR 2017 ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 2

My Thanksgiving Thoughts for 2017

by Christian Author Elena Ramirez

It’s a day before Thanksgiving, and I am grateful to God.  This year has been tough on me for a few reasons.  

Its been a struggle in many ways.  I have been challenged by life, by health, by friends, by enemies, by finances, by my own habits, and sometimes, you just have to grow.  But God has been with me, and guiding me through it.  I am grateful.  Thankful, stirring up my faith. 

I have grown.  And I truly believe I have in many ways.  I have had to go to the enemies camp and take back my respect.  Maybe someone does not understand that.  But when you trust people, and they immaturely reject you, or do not honor you, you stand up for yourself.  And you take back what someone has hurt, and abused.  Respect. 

You know when you are a child, you trust people to take care of you.  To be sensitive to those things and you need to learn.  And when they abuse that, and you don’t know the difference, you accept it.   But when you grow up, you see how perhaps, you were abused, and you want to break spiritual curses, or cycles, that hurt you.  I think I am in the process of breaking some of these cycles, or curses, because I see, I am the Kings Daughter.  I see, I am the head, and not the tail.  

But when you see, people, especially people, you esteemed highly, and they have no regard for honoring you in these ways, you gain strength, and walk away.  

So its sad, yet bitter sweet when you rise above it. But growing, is the goal for me any way.  I want to keep learning, and growing, for Christ.   

I have had to let go, and let God.  In a lot of ways…. For other reasons, as well…

These are things, that this year, I have seen, I need to be careful in.  With my walk with the Lord, and with others.   And its been hard.  Its been sorrowful, its been eye opening though.  

And I do trust God, I am so grateful for my family, and the true friends I do have.  I am thankful for my Salvation, for repentance, for God teaching me that I need to trust Him.  

But I have learned, in my own giving of Thanks, to be grateful for little, and big things.  To be careful not to get cold in my walk with the Lord.  To be careful, even if I vent, not to hate anybody.  To pray more.  I have learned a lot, that I cannot even put into words.  

To remember, though, not everybody takes these things to heart.  So my red flag is up….

To look, and see what God’s Holy King James word says.  And to try and obey.  As a disciple of Christ, I have learned to discipline myself.

But as I think on these things, that I am grateful for, I am reminded, no matter how hard life can be, or how blessed one may be, one must draw closer to God.   This has been my lesson it seems this year.

To seek Him more, to obey more, to be careful more, not to open spiritual doors, that are not of Him.  And through it all thanking Him, and praising Him.  And I make sure, I do.  I will not neglect this, by being passive, or not letting my light shine for Christ.  I try, and thats one thing, I pursue, to give Him glory.  

I am someone, who stays away from spiritual entities that offend God.  I honor God, and only God.  In fear of God. 

And I am careful what I speak…. I know more then ever, the power of life and death in my tongue.

But I know, I cannot be indifferent.  I cannot be cold, or lukewarm in my walk.  I cannot take God for granted, or people, or life for granted.  I must pursue His Kingdom, in His righteousness.

Repentance clears the slate, even if I don’t even understand.  But I must pursue God.  

Revelation 3, from my King James, tells us, that He knows whether we are cold or hot.  He knows if we are lukewarm, He will spit us out.  He tells us, to be careful with the blessings we do have, because some who are rich, think they do not need Him.  

They don’t know that they are miserable, poor and blind.  He counsels us to to seek Him.  Because He will rebuke us when we are wrong.  He stands at the door, and knocks, and if we hear Him, He will come and dine with us.  

Tomorrow we feast. As a tradition here in the United States.  Thanksgiving day, is a time to reflect.  And Christ is invited in my home, my humble home, but where love is, and where grateful hearts, reflect on His love, and goodness.  THANKFUL!

Some do not have these blessings, and its sad.  

But, I am just thankful to God.  I am thankful for everything He has provided for me, and I am even thankful for some things I don’t have.

Learning to be content, is peace.  And there is no peace with the wicked, as scripture says.  So, I pursue Him, in this world, that does not always seem to give love in return.  He is the vine, and I am merely a branch, but I can grow in Christ.  And produce fruit, worthy of His Kingdom.  But I make sure I stay on the vine with Christ. 

And I pursue Him, grateful, for who He is.  With God all things are possible, and I never let go of Him, in these thoughts of mine, because all things do work together for the good who love Him.  

So I am grateful this year, as I surmise on everything, and I praise Him.

Happy Thanksgiving…With much love, in Christ, 

Much love, Elena Ramirez

DO NOT LET PEOPLE INTIMIDATE YOU GOD WILL DEAL WITH THEM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


Version 3I feel led to write to someone, to comfort them, to warn them, to encourage them.   Do not let people intimidate you.  God will deal with them.  God is not a respecter of persons, He loves us all.  But God will protect you, from unjust harm.  Trust Him.  

For, there are many King James scriptures that tell us about our enemies.  And there are many scriptures that tells us what happens to the wicked:

That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; Genesis 22:17  KJV.  

But if thou shalt indeed obey His voice, and do all that I speak then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.  Exodus 23:22.  KJV  

The Lord preserveth all them that love him:  but all the wicked will he destroy.  Psalms 145:20  KJV.

But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of the lambs:  they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.  

Psalm 37:20  KJV.

I am a warrior.  I learned to be that way, because of the own people I dealt with growing up.  I did not have  brothers or sisters.  To protect me.  But I had to fight.  

I fought….In the business world, and even here on social media.  And there are people, who only want to intimidate you, fight you, argue with you, and try to make you feel uncomfortable, or sad.  

Thats their agenda.  I stay clear from those kind of people.  I won’t sit with the scorner.  I won’t even try to let them think I agree with them, when I don’t.  If someone cusses at me, they lose me, in even trying to communicate.  I won’t go to that level.  

Whether its in politics, or in religion, or in the work place. Or even your neighborhood.   The jealousy, prejudice, or pure ignorance, the rudeness, that blinds them, will try and intimidate you.

There are people, no matter how hard you try to get a long with them.  Their venom will come out.  

And I do recommend trying to get along with people.  In fact pray for them.  Walk in love anyway, as Christ commanded us.    

But it seems, no matter what you try to do, they will fight you, argue with you, or try to intimidate you.  

Don’t let that spirit cripple you.  This is a trap from the enemy.  To believe a lie, or to stop you from being fulfilled in the promises of God.  Trust God. 

Maintain your courage, and just know, God is on your side.  Just know, there are angels that are dispatched, for you.  Trust God.  Let this thing that the enemy is trying to use against you, make you stronger.  

Its sad, because I personally have seen people, use something about a person, even personally to make them feel uncomfortable. As if they were superior.  And they will try to manipulate you to think you are not worthy.  

And I guess, even in writing this.  Because I know.  Whatever it is you may have, as a handicap, or as something that makes you feel inferior.  Even your race.  Which should not even be a factor, but because racism and hate is prevalent, they will try and make you feel inferior.  

God can use that, and teach you, how to be stronger, even for someone else.  You can get courage.  You can speak truth.  You can be someone who can rise above it.  

Yes, there are some battles that are not meant for us to fight.  And you need to ask God for wisdom.  

And I myself, pray every day for wisdom in such matters.  Because I have as a fighter been involved in things that I should not.  

But, yet, there is something in me that rises up against evil.  Or against, an injustice to someone else.  Or to an accuser, who is so hateful.  That you tell them.  Knock it off.  And you tell them about their own indiscretions, since they want to make you feel unworthy.  Especially here on social media.  

Where people, will say things, do things, that they would not in public.  But something about being behind a computer, they get courage, to be rude and mean, and try to intimidate you.  Don’t let them.  If you know truth, stand… be still, and Know He is God.  

Look, in life, we will meet the good, the bad, and the ugly.  But don’t be a part of the ugly, or the bad, because you yourself, have been hurt, or intimidated  by someone else.  

Turn it around, whatever wound you have.   Whatever that makes you inferior.  Whatever it is that may have  broken you even in your heart, and life.  And just give it to God.  

God will fight your enemies for you.  I have seen this in my own life.  I have seen God deal with people who have hurt me, and He has punished them.  See they have no idea, especially if you are a Christian, what God will do with them.  But they will reap what they sow.  They have no idea who God is.  

And its sad, because if we all would just see, how frail we are.  If we could just see that their is an enemy.  We would humble ourselves, and bow down, and give God glory, because there is nothing impossible with God.  We would all be kinder, to each other, we would walk in love.  

If all of us would just even apologize, for being sometimes being rude, or insensitive.  We might soothe the beast.  A soft word, turns away anger….

Because we are all capable of that.  See we never know what someone else is going through.  And when people are mean, or cruel, and they have burdens, sadness, God sees.  And it grieves Him, when they are trying to intimidate His child.  He will have His vengeance.  But maybe he is trying for you to see why that person is mean.  Pray for them. 

I just pray, for whoever is reading this, that is feeling intimidated.  Pray, give your whole being to God.  Repent, yourself for even your part in it, if there is…..because maybe you are reaping, what you sowed.  Now you are getting the tail end of it.  

But, stay humble in the sight of God.  Do whats right.  Do not take matters, in your hand that would cause you to lose your right standing with God.  Let God deal with them.  But don’t let them intimidate you.  Just know who you are in Christ.  You are victorious.  You are Gods child, precious, and beautiful in His sight, and He loves you.  That should be enough right now to comfort you, and to pray…..  

Don’t forget to use a King James Bible to search for your scriptures.  For holiness, and anointing, that the others do not give.  

Please share this post, maybe you will help someone who needs to see this.  And may God bless you for doing that.  

This is His promise from the King James:  

And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.  Jeremiah 15:21  KJV.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez 

LONGING FOR TRUTH AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_3137LONGING FOR TRUTH….AND ONLY TRUTH THAT COMES FROM GOD….. By Christian Author Elena Ramirez

 
I think all of us long for truth, theres that part of us, that just wants straight answers. No bull, no games, no compromises.
That really does come from a spirit, of truth, that can only come from God. You need to know there are two spirits, in this. Good, and evil. Remember the tree of good and evil? God did not want us eating from that tree. Eve, and Adam well they did eat of it. And it was sin, in Gods eyes.
Disobedience.
Today, still holds true, good and evil. And He does not want us to eat from that. We need to search for the truth, His truth. We have to be careful, because we can be so easily deceived, by religion, false bibles, lies, wolves in sheep clothing.
The root of that comes from the enemy, the devil, and he wants to deceive you, and keep you from truth.
Friends, search for the truth. For God, to please Him, for yourself, for your family, for just a sense of knowing whats right and wrong.
Beware of the traps from the enemy. Beware of lies.
Get hungry for truth. To be fulfilled. I still want Gods plan, away from the sin. I don’t want the sin, because I know how it can steal from your very own blessings…..
Repentance, is the only way I know we can get it. Humbleness, love…..Don’t let anything steal truth from you. Don’t let the tickling of ears, become your distraction.
Go for truth. Get it, King James truth, and grow….in truth. To be fulfilled. To renew your spirit. To understand, to gain wisdom. Truth, will never let you down. Don’t deny truth, or you become your own enemy.

THE PROSPERITY MESSAGE, MESSES PEOPLE UP….

I have been a Christian for a long time now. And I just see how, one can miss it, by getting caught up in the “prosperity message.”

It is so deceiving, to try and search for God, for a financial miracle, but you don’t work on your heart, or your soul. You don’t make the priority, of Salvation, for you or others the goal.  Learning scripture.  Knowing Gods heart.  

I have seen people, who grasp onto that message, and even believing leaders, who are so full of it, that they have lost their focus on why Christ died on the cross for us.

They don’t see, how when Christ was on this earth, He was offended, by their selling of this or that, and He turned the tables on them, angrily.  In the temple.  

We are called to seek the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all things will be added.

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. MATTHEW 6:33. KING JAMES.

I see the fruit of it, from some that I even love dearly, but they do not make knowing God the priority, they are always dreaming, for this house, or that car, or that which they can compete with the Jones.

I see they support many of these leaders, who say very questionable things.

Even in this election, there are some who are so blinded by power, and wealth, that they think that someone, with this kind of prestige, makes them the answer to Americas problems. Yet they do not see the true fruit of a fake. A counterfeit. A mean spirited person.

So they lose focus on what God says. It does mess a person up.

And I can say this, as a testimony, because when I first started in ministry, I thought, everybody asked for money, and that was how you measured success in ministry.

Wrong.

God has a way of correcting us. Changing our hearts, and I am so glad He did mine. Greed, the prosperity message, is just an illusion to what the enemy can do to confuse a person.

You see, there is a lost world out there, and when people make the prosperity message, their goal, they miss out, in seeing what Gods goal and vision is.

He wants us to be saved. To grow, to know how precious our salvation is. To know His power, His sovereignty, and to reach out for the lost. To reach for the Kingdom for others, and their salvation. To see with hearts, love.

Its just sad, I guess, its just a sign of the times.

But it is not to late, to repent, to stop and see, the goal.

You know, God is not blind to many of us who are in need of a financial miracle, but He works on our hearts first. He corrects us. If we do not receive this correction, we are, our own worst enemy.

God can change things. If only we would work for the Kingdom, for His goal, then He would bless many of us. Our businesses, would become His business, to bless.

But till then, just look at the fruit. It is rotten, it is not what God intended.

The Prosperity message, does mess up people.

In Christ,

Elena

I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ME ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


To some, I am harsh, I am hardlined, I am not flexible.

Well…I won’t compromise Gods truth, His holy word.

I know what compromise has done in the past, and I walked a path, that was not the way of Christ, the truth.

I am to some narrow minded. But that is a compliment to me. You see the path the way, is a narrow way. Its not found in the ways of the world.

BECAUSE STRAIGHT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT. MATTHEW 7:14.

My salvation is not in just having a thought that grace will carry me alone, and that would give me permission to sin. How shabby, how insulting that is to what Christ did on that cross for all of us.

No, I won’t treat my salvation, like its no big deal. I work it out with fear and trembling. I don’t trust anybody but what God says, truth of the matter. Because the Holy Spirit is my teacher.

And when I am wrong, I repent. And believe me, I have been wrong. But I am not wrong, when I say I have fear of God. Because God does not let me get away with anything. Not at all.  And I am grateful for that.  That I heed His correction, that I know what the consequences of sin is.  And that scares me.  So no I am grateful for His promptings, His correction.  His love.  

I am a nice person. But even nice people can get to the point that they don’t care. And I don’t, there is something free about that. 

None of you know my life, what I have gone through, none of you know what God has taught me. But I will not let go of that old rugged cross, and I will with all my being, try, yes at least try to give Him glory, and obedience.  

But it all begins even by the bible I use. I use a King James bible.  For holiness, and truth.  And the anointing.  That has not been corrupted by mans hands.

I don’t want to be a flaky Christian, with no true substance. I know, how valuable my salvation is in Christ.

So, I don’t care, what people think. They don’t live my life, and they don’t live my pain, or my sorrow, or what I have gone through. So think what you want. I don’t care.

My hope is in Christ, and Christ alone. Christ is going to return. My goodness, do we not see prophecy being shown in front of our eyes?

Are we still going to play church? Play religion, mans rules, traditions, and regulations, that think its right.

We better think again, all of us, if we really want to make it to Gods Kingdom.  We better think what does God think?  Oh don’t mistake His silence, for nothing.  He is not mocked, and we reap what we sow.  

So what people think about me at this point, does not matter.

LOOKING FOR THAT BLESSED HOPE, AND THE GLORIOUS APPEARING OF THE GREAT GOD AND OUR SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. TITUS 2:13.  

Blessings and love, Elena Ramirez
