Playing the race card, makes you a racist.  And if you play that card, don’t be surprised, if the door swings back and hits you.  

Sadly, we look at someone who is a racist, and we hate, the injustice of it.  Usually, it is because someone, who is mean spirited, and hateful, that does terrible things to others.  Because of their race.  Do you see the full circle of it?  It causes hate.  Which is not good.  

Well, the sad thing, is when you start demanding your rights, because of your race.  And you pull out that race card.  Whether good, or bad, for your race, it is the same principle.  It makes you a racist.  I don’t care, what color you are.  That makes you a racist.

Hollywood, right now, is having a boycott.  During the Academy Awards.  By two famous, married actors.  And other high profile personalities.  Because of their race.  Because they did not get recognized.  Did you notice I am not mentioning them by their race?

I am not in hollywood.  I don’t play by those politics.  Or rules of engagement.  But, my goodness, what a gifted actor he is, and what a beautiful woman she is.  And they have had more opportunities, then me, or even the average person.  

I have always fought discrimination.  But in a different way.  By trying to make myself a better person.  By being a Christian.  By learning the characteristics and ways of my God, and His Son, our Lord Jesus.

I am Hispanic. The stereo types of my nationality, of my race, have always put me at a disadvantage, when it comes to ignorant people.  From looking at you, to see if you only speak Spanish.  Or stereo type you by wearing a sombrero, or whatever.  When people even address, you by your name, and tell you, if you are “legal” you should vote for a certain person.  

This just happened to me yesterday.  Where I was in a discussion, on a political post.  For Ted Cruz.  And I called that person out, and I gave them a piece of my mind.  I write out conversations often to record my quotes, and thoughts, and this is what I said in this one.:

“Go somewhere else, another country!  With that discrimination, that is just like “the candidate you support running for office.”  But how dare you tell me this by my name!  Let me inform you, educate you.  You moron.  I am an American.  Fourth generation. That means my ancestors were Americans by birth.  It also means I am probably more American because of my indigenous roots.  This is what is wrong with your candidates agenda and fools that follow that kind of agenda.  You are prejudiced, and it shows.  I have nothing further to say to your lack of class and intelligence.  Have a nice day.”  

My response, and I can say it myself.  Sounds harsh.  Maybe not even the Christian way.  I am a Christian but I am not perfect.  And I understand the injustice of racism.  My parents, told me at an early age, what racism did to them being in the Eisenhower era, and he rounded up Hispanics.  And shipped them back to Mexico.

I have seen myself, being denied, respect, by my race, even in the Corporate business world.  And yes, it makes me angry.  But even though I may get angry, and I may give you a piece of my mind, I still want to take a higher road.  And sadly, yes, there are many ignorant, prejudiced people.  Who hate.  They hate by the race, by the package someone comes in.  

Martin Luther King, had a beautiful thought, when he said, and I am paraphrasing, “I want to be judged by the integrity, and character of who I am”.  He was a man of God.  And I know with compassion, because history tells us, of so many atrocities, that have been done because of race.  My heart breaks when I see, how it destroys someones confidence, because of mean people who are racists.  It is ugly.

So many, have actually used genocide, to wipe away a people, a culture, a race.  Jews, suffered greatly because of this.  But they don’t hate.  Now, what they do, is defend themselves as they should, but they don’t put people down.  They are a good example of what to do as well.  They fight back now.  

And if you have to fight, then fight right, by doing what is right in the sight of God.  God is love.  And we are to have the characteristics of Christ in love.  

But scripture also tells us, He is not a respecter of persons.  Maybe, if I did not have my American upbringing, knowing the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, and my Christian upbringing, I may have just not said anything.  I may have let that lady mock me, and insult me.  But something rose in me, because I know God is not a respecter of persons.  

Acts 10:34 King James.  THEN PETER OPED HIS MOUTH, AND SAID, OF A TRUTH I PERCEIVE THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS:

That means, He loves us all the same.  He looks at what we do, if we have accepted Christ as Lord and savior.  He looks, to see, if we repent.  For we ALL sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  He looks at our souls.  What do we have in our souls?  And if you are a racist, maybe you should see, by His example, that you should repent.  

So why should we be racists?  Why should any of us, take that kind of vision, that does not come from God?  Especially even now, I see it in this political campaigns of some.  

For even our King James bibles, and history tell us of wars, between people, and cultures.  

Do I want to engage in battle, over racial issues?  No.  

And I think we have a choice.  But we better look at who we like, why we like them, and are we someone, who wants to demand and play the racist card, because of race?  

I will defend you, if I see someone discriminated by their race.  Thats just my nature.  The big sister, who did not have a big sister to defend her.  But I like that same kind of defense.  We need to look out for one another.  We need to speak up.  We need to say, thats wrong.  Especially if we are Christians.  

I hope Hollywood, finds some kind of peace in this, but, again, I can only speak for myself.  I am a writer, I am a Christian writer.  I am an American.  Born and raised.  

But none of that means anything, unless I can write.  And prove it to God and others, that I write to serve my God.  But its not by the race card, I am playing to get recognition, or to even get a job.  Or getting a book deal.

Its by knowing what God says by my King James bible.  A true and holy word, that is not corrupted by men, or publishers.  It is…Applying it to my life, and to others.  Anything else is vanity.  Its being puffed up, and it is not worthy of recognition.  

For, it is taking, a gift of words, a knowledge that I have strived to learn, and commanding them to good use, for the Kingdom of God.  

With love, for myself, for you, for others….

Just as I am now, with….

Just my thoughts.  

Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez

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

THE WAY FOR GUIDANCE IN TRUTH AND LIFE THIS YEAR OF 2014 SCRIPTURE JOHN 14:6 ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ.

I know the principles to have faith. I can help you. Order the book today. Go to this link…. http://howtohavefaith.wordpress.com

JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.  John 14:6.

The way, for guidance, in truth, and life.  Do we seek to know what that way is?

This morning, I woke up with a new sense of hope, for the new year of 2014. This first day of the year.

And on so many mornings, I do hear the prompting from God.  As He speaks to me.  Sometimes very quietly, and sometimes, very loud, so I know it is Him.

Today, He spoke, firmly, to me, to know that He is the way, He is the truth, and He is life.  I took it to heart, to know, that I need to dedicate this scripture this year, as a motivational scripture, a scripture, to inspire me to have a sense, of guidance. To know He is truth, He is life, and most definitely, He is that way!

You see, I want changes in my life.  I want changes and progress to give Him glory.  Giving God glory is a mission to me, it is my personal agenda, as a goal.  For I seek to please Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  I just feel as we grow as Christians, more, and more this should be our goal.  To give God glory.  But how do you do that?

You trust in the fact, with this one scripture, that has so much value to it.  To know, how much a treasure these words are to know.  Christ is the way!  He is Truth!  He is life…..  Just to ponder on that for a moment, to let it sink in, gives me so much.  It inspires me, it tells me hold onto that scripture through everything….

It gives me hope, when I get lost, in the hustle and bustle of life, that He is the way.  We walk by faith, and not by sight.  And sometimes, we lose our way.  I know I have.  I am a Christian, but I am like that little lamb, that gets lost now and then, and I have to call out to my savior.  I cry out, and He comes to me, and soothes me, and pours oil on my head, and puts me about His neck, and keeps me close to His side.  Sometimes, we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, sometimes, we walk where the enemy is close by, and we have to be on guard.  We have to let the word, be a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path….

 But if I go about wandering around, without knowing, I can get in trouble, if I leave His side, whose fault is that?  That is mine!  I have to include Him in ALL of my decisions, I need to go to Him in prayer, early in the day, and commit to Him, to help me.  Because I ask….I need to commit everything to Him.  For me and my family.

So I want to be careful to stay close to His side, because He is the way.  If I do not, I can lose my way.  I don’t want to lose my way any more…..I am not interested, in trying to find the way, the truth, and life, on my accord.  But by His way, His truth, His life.  A life, that He gave on that cross to pay my debts!  This is my goal….

So, I seek His truth!  I seek this truth, from my King James Bible.  No other Bible to me is truth.  They are part truth, and part lies, because men, have compromised God’s holy word, and changed it, here and there.  To enhance the meaning?  I don’t think so, I think it truly is an agenda of the devil to distort Gods word, to change it, so the potency will not be there.  There are so many warnings, that tell us, from God, do not change, do not add, do not delete Gods word.  Revelation 22:18-19. And I have seen so many discrepancies, when comparing scripture to scripture from the different versions, with Gods holy word, the King James, that causes me great alarm!  So I stick with the King James.

Life, you want to look with hope, in 2014 for the changes, in life, God can bring.  He promises life abundantly.  I claim, that on earth, as it is in heaven. I have great anticipation, more so, from other years.  Maybe it is maturity in Christ, maybe it is just wanting again, to see God glorified, but I am pressing into this life, that I have grateful, and wanting to be obedient, yes, in fear of God, who holds my life in His hands.

Fear of God, brings it all together oh so sweet.  Not in a burdensome way, but in way, that tells Him, as His daughter, I know He has established it by His way, and if I want life, I have to choose His way. I have to choose His truth.

Without wavering, without doubting, without, testing Him.  No I know the consequences of sin, and it is death, it is not life.  And I want peace, because there is no peace to the wicked.

 So I have to see it all together, to please him.  Because if I don’t, I could miss it.  I don’t want to miss it any more.  In fact, I want to be restored, totally healed, and renewed in this gift of life He has given me. But so much more, in this glory I want to give Him, I want to see miracles.  Great miracles, that bring Him glory.

If I want my life to change, if I want these miracles, if I want to see God glorified, in my life, and yes even you….I have to position myself, and take hold of Gods promises, in obedience, and let go, and let God.

I am believing, in 2014, according to John 14:6, that Christ is the way, the truth, and life, and I am taking all of His word, to bless without sorrow…..Don’t you think you have to do the same thing?  Position yourself, completely with God.  Thats the answer!  To have the way, to have the truth, to have the life!

Just my thoughts, for the new year.  May God bless your new year of 2014 as well.  Take to heart, this scripture, meditate on it, understand it, totally.  It may be your scripture for 2014 as well.

 Rededicating myself to Christ every day, is just a new beginning….

 Blessings, and love in Christ, Elena Ramirez

Lord, I put 2014 in your hands, and I pray, I do my part according to your truth, so you will be glorified in my life.  For the changes I long for.  You are the way, the truth, and life.  And I hold onto this promise of John 14:6.  With all my being this year.  Bless your word. The King James word. In all areas of my life for your glory. So I can say Look what the Lord has done for me. Thank you, Father, I bless you Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In Jesus name.  Amen.  

SACRILEGIOUS ~ ARE YOU MOCKING CHRISTMAS?


It is really sad, that in this time, we live in, that we have come to the place, where we see our society, mocking, and defaming, the things of sanctity, of Holiness, of God.  Of Christmas…..

I turn on my television, and I hear reports, of famous actors, making a mockery of this, and that of God.  You read it in the news reports, that someone, is opposing, or enforcing, fining someone, for just expressing Christ.  In HOA’s rules, or whatever.  Schools, not even singing Christmas songs.  Or singing Christmas songs, but changing the lyrics from Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays.  Stores, and merchants, instructing their employees, to say Happy Holidays, instead of Merry Christmas.

America, is not fighting for their faith.  Or so it seems, because there is a passiveness.  And our rights, are diminshing….Our rights to worship, to believe, should be accepted.  To pray….But instead, it is all so controversial.  This is what our founding Fathers, came here for.  For freedom in religious rights, and expression.

I just saw a report, where a famous actress (if you want to call her that) played the virgin Mary, and she spoke profanity.  And people review this, and they accept it.  As humor.

You know, I just have to say right here, God is not mocked.  In any aspect.  And they will reap, what they sow.  They will stand before God, when their life is over, and will have to give an account, of what they did.  To Christians. By slandering the name of God, and by using His name, in curse words, etc.  By not accepting His gospel.  God will have His final say.  He may not be saying anything, now, but they will reap, what they sow.  We all will.  But one prays, to hear….”Well done, good and faithful servant!”  At least I do….

And I would not wish “hell” on anyone.  Even my worst enemy.  In fact, I pray for my enemies.  I pray, for those who have so much hate in them, that they want to hurt others for believing in Christ.  I pray for their souls.  Because I know, what it means to believe, in Christ, and what it does to not believe.  And I would never trade my faith, my hope, the beauty of who He is in my life.  The peace, and the joy, I have, by believing His word.  But they will perish, and will regret it…..

Christmas, has been so commercialized, and the true meaning of who Christ is,has been rejected, and neglected, in the meaning.  Its about Christ, the son of God, who was sent to this world, to save us.  If we only believe.  Born of a virgin, born into humble beginnings, because He understood.  His life, was planned by God, so if we believe, we can have hope in who He is.  But the world, has perverted it.

As Christians, it is our responsibility, to teach this to our children, grandchildren, and to be a voice of light, in a dark world.  The world does not know.  Its sad, and pathetic, that truly the true meaning of Christmas is not being expressed, by musicians, by the media, by Hollywood, and by us, as Christians.

It is sad, to say that, because when you know the saving grace of Christ, one knows, how merciful, and kind He is.  I know… The great sacrifice, of His life, for us.  That Christ went to the cross, for each and every one of us, that believes.  He gives us this chance in our lifetimes.  To change, to accept His ways, to live a better life.  To have peace, hope in something….

But, some are so intent, in defaming, that which is good.  Mocking it.

Galatians 6:7

BE NOT DECEIVED:  GOD IS NOT MOCKED:  FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  

With no respect.  If they only knew….but how will they unless we tell them?  Unless we show them, by our own testimonies, the goodness of God, through Christ?  That He is the way, the truth, and life?  How will they know?  My heart yearns, to be that light, to show others in darkness, that the son of God, is the light of the world…..

But it seems at Christmas time, there is more of a outcry, from the world, from unbelievers, to try and put down, things related to Christ.  Christ~ianity, Christ~mas, Christ~mas trees, and on, and on, and on.

Trying to take away the rights, of believers, trying to disfuse, the beauty that has to do with Christ.  And why, sadly, and some cannot relate to this, but they are led by the devil.

I pray, for our future generations, if Christ does not return by then.  Because to have freedom, to express, who you are in Christ, is a right.  But when you know who Christ is in you.  You know your own rights, in living.  According to Gods standards.  And there is no other standard, to test, when you know Gods truth.  You know the difference, between holy and evil.  Good and bad….

Our American soldiers, have fought for that right.  They are fighting right now.  This is a religious war we are in, a spiritual battle.  But there is also a battle, in the heavenlies.  And God is going to win this battle.  It says, so, according to Gods word.  (Read Revelation)

Look I don’t know who my audience is in this.  But, if I could only plead with you, to stop, and see, and STOP the persecution, the hate, the evil, by denying Christmas.  You would see a difference, if you only went to the throne of God, and repented, and asked God, to show you the truth, the true spirit of Christmas, He would.

Read Luke chapters 1 and 2.  From Gods Holy word, the Bible.  Say a prayer, even if you do not know how to pray.  Ask God, to reveal the truth, the beauty of Christmas, and see God do something so astounding, that will reveal, love.  Christmas is love.  For God is love….

Please see this, and no longer mock that which is Holy.  Are you mocking Christmas? I plead with you, for your own soul.  I do pray for you.  Open your eyes, if you do not, you will regret it, for eternity.

And I pray, as believers, we would shine, our lights, brighter, and bolder for Christ, as our gift to him, for the gift of Salvation, He has given us.  Merry Christmas, Glory to God in the highest peace, on earth, and good will to all. Luke 2:14.  

Just my thoughts with Christmas love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I praise you, and thank you for Christmas, for Christ, who came to save the world.  Help us, as believers, protect us, from the lies of the enemy, and give us utterance, to speak truth, and love.  Concerning who Christ really is.  And the true meaning of Christmas.  Use this, for your glory, in Jesus name.  Amen.

DO YOU KNOW YOURSELF?


God knows you better then you know yourself! After all He created you. He knows your heart, your desires, your wants, your sins, you faults, flaws etc..He knows everything about you. The wonderful thing is, when you know Christ, and what He stands for, what He did for you, and me, and you have given him your heart, you begin to see yourself differently. Because He lives and reigns in your heart. You know Christ.

If you have not given him your heart, and you have not renewed your mind, well you may still have that “stinking thinking.”

This is a photograph that I took recently at my Fathers grave. The rose, we bought from a vendor, on the street, and I placed it at my Fathers grave. Memorial Day. And as I looked further, it almost seems like their is a tear on the rose. I did cry that day, for all the times, I did not have my father. He and mom, were divorced, when I was a young child. So I do grieve, for the loss.

Anyway, my Father though, did have a part in my life, that I will always honor, and cherish. For you see, I was not to be born. According to doctors, they told my mother, she could not have children. Well to make a long story short, dad prayed for my life, he prayed to God, for me to be born. And here I am….So God does know better. He knows everything about me… And yet as I see myself, in Christ, there are times, when I must come to God, and say….

Father….CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART, OH GOD, AND RENEW A RIGHT SPIRIT WITHIN ME. Psalms 51:10. 

Its like a tune up. You just know, things aren’t running right in your heart, your faith may be down, your attitude may be judgmental, and you know in your heart of hearts, maybe theirs sin….But you need God to make it right, within you. So you can think better, feel better, and see results.

You may not see that old serpent, but you know, he is slithering about, like a snake in the grass….And you don’t want to miss out or lose out in your blessings….So you go to God.

And you ask him to create a clean heart, so your life, will reflect Christ. Praying blessings for you today….

Praying it for myself quietly, today, there is no Prayer of Hope listed, today, it you noticed… Today, my Prayers are private, and quiet.  In the Lord.

Just my thoughts, with love,

BINDING FEAR REQUIRES GODS WORD


So many of us, for whatever reasons, experiences fear.  It could be from something we have seen like a scary movie, or just a horrible experience, or just someone, not believing in God, and when that is prevalent, more than ever fear can come in.

It also comes from sin. Doing something, wrong in the sight of God.

So it is good to know what the word of God says, about fear, and it does require Gods word, to cast it out, so you know truth.  Gods truth, in love.

Fear is not good for the soul.  It’s not good, for relationships, its not good for a person period.  Now the fear of God, well thats something different.  Thats healthy, and I wrote just recently, another blog on that subject.  Feel free to check out my posts.  Entitled:  Do you fear the Lord, seven reasons, why I do.

But, I am now talking about general fear, and how it can stop you from being fulfilled in your life.  There are different fears, and different phobias.  And I am not a doctor, or a psychologist.  But what can someone do, if they are experiencing fear?

I say, run to God.  PRAY.  You see, He loves you, and me.  And He is known as the shepherd.   He promises, that he will never leave or forsake you, or me. Hebrews 13:5 That comforts me.  No one else comforts me, like my Lord, and his word.

Sometimes, I see movies, and I see what they don’t do.  In other words, when someone needs help, they never show an example of someone praying.  And Hollywood, never goes to God, they never pray, in movies.  They may sing some silly song, like “Row, row your boat,” but you never see an example of someone calling on God.

And well, God is who I go to.  God is who I, and my husband have gone to, and we have taught our family to go to.  I could not survive in this world without calling on God.  For everything….

But I need to share why sometimes, we experience fear, and what to do.  I have learned, and I am only basing this on my own experiences.  But I have learned sometimes, I have brought the fear on myself, by what I am watching, on television, or movies etc.  Or the books, one reads. Psalm 101:3 I will set before my eyes no vile thing.

I used to be someone who liked a good vampire movie.  Why, I don’t know?  But, it did start to have an affect on me.  I began to feel fear, over those things.  And now as I think about it, how Hollywood, even now is making those vampire movies, they try to make love, evil.  And real love is not evil.  For God is love.  I John 4:16

And well, what I was doing, was planting fear in my own life.  But I saw the error of my ways, after prayer, and repentance, I felt God telling me, not to watch those kind of movies, etc.  for entertainment.  So, I don’t.  I know Gods voice, and when his word, tells me, He has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7…I believe it.

Also, something to consider, is the words I speak.  Am I speaking faith, or fear?

I know, that his spirit, has not given me a desire to see evil.  Or watch it also, on movies.  And very importantly, not keeping company with evil doers.  For, evil, will try to impose fear.  So, how to rectify that?  Simple just obey God, and turn from things like that.  Psalm 101:4 Men of perverse heart, shall be far from me, I will have nothing to do with evil.

Now, I know some things can be deep rooted, and they can just be things, that need time and patience.  But Gods word, can comfort, it can heal, it can soothe, and it can change ones perspective.  I just know, by searching Gods word for any need, especially when it comes to fear, I know Gods word, has healed me.  Of fear…..

Try reading Psalms 91, when you need some comfort.  And here are a few other scriptures on fear, but also comfort.  To bind any fear in your life.

Blessings, and Just my Thoughts,  What are your thoughts about this?

Elena Ramirez

Love will cast out Fear.  (Only Gods love, for God is love)

I John 4:18

THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE.  BUT PERFECT LOVE DRIVES OUT FEAR, BECAUSE FEAR HAS TO DO WITH PUNISHMENT.  THE ONE WHO FEARS IS NOT MADE PERFECT IN LOVE.

No fear of evil….

PSALM 23:4

EVEN THOUGH, I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL.  FOR YOU ARE WITH ME, YOUR ROD AND YOUR STAFF COMFORT ME.

Go to the throne of God, pray, take this fear, and just leave it there, (don’t pick it back up)

I PETER 5:7

CAST ALL YOUR ANXIETY ON HIM BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU.

I love this one…(Thank you Father) and I claim it!

Isaiah 41:10

SO DO NOT FEAR, FOR I AM WITH YOU; DO NOT BE DISMAYED, FOR I AM YOUR GOD.  I WILL STRENGTHEN YOU AND HELP YOU, I WILL UPHOLD YOU WITH MY RIGHTEOUS RIGHT HAND.

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, Thank you first of that you are God, you are Lord, creator of heaven and earth.  And when I see, all that your hands have done, I am comforted.  For I am your child, I am your servant, I am through you, the righteousness of you my Lord, because of Jesus Christ.  I thank you for teaching me, and reminding me, you are able, and when I see that, my fear goes, for whatever reason.  But I do try to keep myself from sin, and from not, seeing evil, so I will not fear life, or circumstances, or the dark for that matter.  You are with me, and I claim, and believe you teach me your ways, so I will not fear.  I believe….Thank you Father, for binding fear from me, for in your perfect love, I can cast it away.  In Jesus name,  Amen

DO YOU WISELY LISTEN TO CORRECTION? OR DO YOU DENY IT, AND DO YOUR THING ANYWAY?…


Photograph provided by Brother Wes Suzawa

THE EAR THAT HEARETH THE REPROOF OF LIFE ABIDETH AMONG THE WISE.

PROVERBS 15:31

Do you listen to life, and know that it is from God, telling you to stop, and just rest in him?  Or just stop and quiet your spirit?  Let me put it another way.  When you get that gut feeling to do something, or not do it, do you listen, and trust your instinct?  And when you hear that voice, do you understand, and heed it and obey?  Or do you do your thing anyway even if you do not have peace doing it?

I trust my gut instinct, or feelings.  And I usually listen because I know Christ is in my heart, and He guides me, but I have to listen and obey.  Yesterday, on my blog, I wrote briefly, as I meditated on the scripture of Psalms 71:1-6 & 8.   I felt, like I needed to take refuge in God.  And not for any particular reason, at that point, but I also felt like I was running on empty, to share with you folks.  I stated, that I wanted to quiet myself.  And I needed to listen to God.  So, I did take a day off, to do so.  And through out the day, I tried, purposely, to listen to God.

With that goal in mind.

And He did not let me down.  He did speak to me, in many ways.  Through, His holy word, through, the Holy spirit, and even other Christians, who are friends.  My brother Wes a fellow Christian blogger.   http://Wessuzawa.wordpress.com

See his beautiful photo above, and his blog.

So, I feel like God was quieting my spirit, and just getting me into position.  Perhaps, it was a test. But, I knew, that I knew, I had to quiet myself.  I had to listen…..

Anyway, toward the end of the evening, I could have gotten into an argument with one of my family members.  And for some reason, and I attribute it to God, quieting me down.  I did not get caught in that trap, and I did not let any anger or strive be my motivator.  It is said, that sometimes that old devil will try to come against the plan of God, and tempt others, when they are trying to do that which is right and in the sight of God.  To cause strive, and especially between those we love.  In doing so, one can get caught up in anger.  And can lose the blessing.  So I am aware of that, and did not let the devil get that over me.

Nor did I let my loved ones behavior, get the best of me.  I let love win…..

Now, I wasn’t a push over either.  I stood my ground, with my loved one.  But, I did not get all bent out of shape…so to speak, and if you get my drift.  I maintained my composure, and I really do believe, it was because, I felt God quieting me, with peace, and love.  Earlier in the day, same thing, with a business transaction, I actually got denied at our bank, to cash checks because of a technicality, the clerk, stood on.  Which was somewhat annoying, but I had such sweet peace.  Why?  Because, I really believe, that when God said, “quiet yourself down today.” I obeyed, and it benefited, me when I needed it.  But I only received that, when I prayed, and when I could see, I did not need to run the show, or be the authority.  I let God be the authority.

Then this scripture above came to me out of no where, from a piece of paper, that I found in my office, and I meditated on it.  As if a sign from heaven.  And it brought me truth, to know, that when God speaks to your heart, and corrects you, or instructs you, you need to be acutely aware, that God is doing it for a reason.  You need to train your ear, to hear reproof, in other words.  You need to trust your gut instinct.  You need to know, it is God, guiding you.  Especially as you draw close to God.  His holy spirit, can speak to you, if you have given your heart to Christ.

I share this, because it proved to me, that I heard God.  I heard the promptings of the Holy spirit.  Sometimes, I think I know whats best for me, or I think I can handle things.  I guess, you could call that pride.  But, there are times, I really cannot, I don’t have the fuel, or the energy, to deal with things, when I need to.

Yesterday, was a great example of that.  I feel by learning that, I did gain some wisdom.  But for me to say, I am wise, would not be humble.  I will just leave it to the wisdom of God, and just say, Lord, I am listening…..with this ear, that wants to hear you…..In your wisdom Lord, in your wisdom.

I SAMUEL 3:9 ….SPEAK LORD, FOR YOUR SERVANT IS LISTENING.

Just my thoughts, with his love,  Elena Ramirez

My Prayer of Hope…..

Father, I just thank you, that I learned something by listening, by taking a stand to listen.  I heard your voice.  Thank you, for instruction, for guidance, for loving me, to show me, by example.  That sometimes, I just have to quiet myself and listen.  Just another reason, why, I love you Lord.  In Jesus name, Amen

DEUTERONOMY 30:20  AND THAT YOU MAY LOVE THE LORD, YOUR GOD, LISTEN TO HIS VOICE, AND HOLD FAST TO HIM.  FOR THE LORD IS YOUR LIFE, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU MANY YEARS IN THE LAND HE SWORE TO GIVE TO YOUR FATHERS, ABRAHAM ISAAC AND JACOB.

(SECRET CLUE KNOW THE COVENANT BETWEEN GOD AND ABRAHAM, IT IS YOUR PROMISE TOO)
