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

SEGREGATION WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHURCH? IN GODS HOUSE, ALL PEOPLE, TRIBES, RACES, SHOULD BE WELCOMED, WHY AREN’T THEY? HMMMMM.


Jesus loves all the children of the world

Segregation, is not in the house of God, why is it accepted, in the church, the body of Christ?

When was the last time, you heard a prominent pastor, on television, or at the pulpit, promote, love, and acceptance of all people?  Advocating, walls of segregation, to tumble down, and for ALL people to come together, in the house of the Lord?  When?  I haven’t heard this……I could be in the wrong circles though….hmmm.

The Lord, has been putting this on my heart, for a while, and I have seen it, sensed it, and yet, to be honest, I have not said too much, until now.  To be honest, I did not want to deal with this issue.  But obedience, is better than sacrifice.  So, I repent, even here publicly.  And as I express this, I pray to do so in love.  As I also receive correction from God.  For whom God loves He corrects.

I pray, that leaders, the people of the church, the saints, the pew warmers, even for that matter, would take this to heart, and even take it to your leaders, and ask, Why?

Why is it that this church, I attend, this body of Christ, does not promote, or continually express, that ALL people, are welcomed here?

There is no segregation in the Kingdom of God, why is it that there is, segregation, in the church I attend?

Look around folks, people, are drawn to “birds of a feather”  and rather, than just accept, our own kind, did not Christ tell us to love one another?  Thats everybody.  We all have blood, thats red.  That unites, us when we have the blood of Jesus.

I live in Colorado, and to be honest, there is segregation, in my community, and in the churches I attended.  And I am not trying to play the “race~card here, but I have also felt discrimination, in my community, and in the churches, I have attended.  Stereo typing of my race, from Christian leaders, etc.  Not all of us wear sombreros, nor have we all swam across, or sneaked across the border.  Its insulting, when you sit, in a pew, and you have a Christian leader, make a point, at the expense, of demeaning, someone and their race.

If anything, I have felt a sense of just “toleration” for being hispanic, and attending predominantly other churches, of a a different race.  And I have been to a few, so I know, the difference.  To be honest, when I attended, a church, that was more of my race, I felt the love.  Or at least the acceptance.

I have gone against the flow, of just being at a church, where, my race, was dominant, because I want to be in a church, where all people go.  Like in heaven…..

I have longed, to go to a church, where I would hear the pastor, promote, love.  Promoting, acceptance of ALL people, and promoting, Gods agenda, in this.  And not just once, in a blue moon, but constantly.

People, in the body of Christ, need to hear, about Love.  To see our leaders, taking the word of God, and applying, it, constantly, to help change hearts.   To change dispositions, to change the way our world is.  To remind us, to love one another.  To take a chance.

To not judge someone, by their race, tribe or status, in life, for that matter.  For we will always find, greater, and lesser people, in this walk of life.

I want to find a place, someday, a church home, where I will hear the pastor, constantly say, ALL PEOPLE ARE WELCOMED HERE!  Rich and poor, black or white, red, or green, or blue, all people are welcomed in this house of God.  And it will reflect that, as you look around, and see, all kinds of different people, sitting together, being united in Christ, and doing His work, together.

For if we can only imagine Gods Kingdom, heaven, all people are present there, in Gods house.  Every tribe, every nation, every race, rich and poor, will be represented, in Gods Kingdom, and not token members.  But those that understand, the great love of Christ, and His sacrifice.  Love, will be prevalent.  There is laughter, joy, good food, and acceptance, of one another, because we have accepted Christ, as our savior.

Thats why it is needed now.  Like the Lords prayer… “On earth, as it is in heaven.”  I don’t want to criticize, anyone in this, or even make someone, who I, have known, in the past, as a Christian leader, feel bad, or inadequate, but the truth of the matter is, its the responsibility of every Christian, to walk in love, with all people.  But how can we know, unless our leaders promote, love? UNITY!

And our leaders, in ministry, have the great responsibility, of reminding us, to walk in love.  To get out of the comfort zone, of just accepting, and receiving people, of your own race, to reach others, for Christ.

Race, status, should not be the priority, in the house of God.

I consider myself, an ambassador of Christ, as the word says, and when I tell you this, look at yourself, as also an ambassador of Christ.

Go to your leaders, go to your congregation, and remind them in love, that we are to love one another, as Christ loved us.  We are to reach out, and touch hearts, that may be different then ours, we are to sit together, and let those walls of segregation come down, and we must be united, in Christ.   Make it a campaign, a priority, a mission statement, that ALL PEOPLE ARE WELCOMED!

We are the body of Christ, and we all need each other.  One cannot do without the other, as Christ gave the example, the eye needs the head, the head needs the body.

We need each other, and love and acceptance of one another, and promoting that love,  is the only way, we can fulfill the calling and mandate Christ gave us.   Love one another.  Reach out today, or at your next service, remind your pastor, remind each other.  Love one another.

The world understands diversity, isn’t it time, we make it our agenda, as well?  But from the perspective of God.

CONSTANTLY…..Keep this on the forefront, of your agenda, and watch God bless you, and your church…..

All I have to say in closing, is I am reminded, we are all going to stand before God.  I want to promote Love, as much, as I can, because of Christ.  Because of His sacrifice.  I don’t want to be ashamed, when I stand before Him.  I am not a pastor, but if I was, every Sunday, in closing, I would tell everyone, how much they are loved, and race, had nothing to do with it.

Who knows, that may be the only time, a person, heard they were loved.  And that was at church…..Wow what an idea, to be told you were loved at church.  No matter who you were.  Who knew?

Just my thoughts, in love, Elena Ramirez

I John 3:14

We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethern.  He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.  

I Peter 2:17  Honor, all men.  Love the brotherhood.  Fear God.  Honor the King.  

John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  

Father, thank you for bringing this to my attention.  And prompting me by the Holy Spirit, to write this.  Lord, I apologize, I repent, for not writing this sooner.  You put this on my heart about a month ago, and I just did not want to deal with this subject matter.  But obedient, I repent, and pray, you use, this for your glory.  I pray, people, Christian leaders, would take this to heart.  I want to be a part of the solution, not the problem, even more so, as I repent.  Lord,  may this bring great changes, for your glory and honor.  May love, become our motivator, in all we do, in the body of Christ, may we truly love one another, as you have loved us.  I plead your blood, in honor of you, to remind myself, and others, how important it is, that we stir love up, and help people, feel closer to you, by the way, we treat them.  In Jesus name.  Amen

IRON SHARPENS IRON~ FRIENDS ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER


Iron, sharpens iron.  So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.  Proverbs 27:17.  

Not everyone, has true friends.  But when you do, you count them as a gift from God.  I feel blessed, that I have a few good friends.  They are gifts from God.  Some, I see, and talk to here and there, and some, I don’t even know, all of them, by their faces, in person, but they are friends.  They bless me, and I pray, I bless them.  Like iron, sharpening iron.

Everyone, has a gift, within.  Some may see it, more then others.  The wonderful thing, is that friends, can draw it out of you.  They know how to “push” the right buttons, to inspire you, motivate you, and encourage you.

I like to do that, with my friends, and even some enemies to be honest.  Because I want to be the kind of person, that speaks truth, and sees the best in everyone.  I want to encourage people.  In the love of Christ.  Thats, one of the reasons,why I write…

Anyway, I know some people, who do not like to compliment others, because they feel, it will give someone a big head, or if anything, because they are jealous.

They see, the potential, the ability, and instead, it makes them look at themselves, and think, they are not adequate, or they are not gifted.  Which is the furthest thing from the truth.  Because God blesses us all.  But one must see it.  I have learned, and I am not perfect at this, but I have quit trying to compare myself to anybody.  I see my potential in Christ.

For, you will find, less, and better people in this world, in all forms of life, gifts, and attributes.  I could get caught up on the thought, that there are better writers then me. Prettier, people, smarter people….and on and on, and on.

But, comparing yourself, to anyone, is just a waste of time, and really, a ploy from the devil, to get you off track, and get your mind on “me, me, me” so you will not be fulfilled by God.  We all know his track record, he had the mindset, that it was all about him.  Thats pride, thats ego, and that comes from the devil.  We want to be careful, not to fall into that trap.

Anyway, call it maturity, or old age, I refuse, to do that, with my self-esteem anymore.  I do not want to waste my time, on just thinking about me.  I want to keep my eyes on Jesus.  On his countenance.  On his glory.  If I don’t I will miss it.  So if I compare myself, I will lose my focus.  For,  I am a child of God, just as much as the other person is.  I do not want to be my own enemy.  So, I try to be positive.  But, I am human. I do make mistakes, but I do not want to be beating myself up.  Or others.

And sometimes, though, we do need to sharpen each other.  Especially, concerning who we are in Christ.  By example, by love, by Gods word.  Truth…We do need to draw out, the hidden gifts, and callings of one another.  We need to help each other.  Being patient with one another, compassionate, and appreciative, of others gifts, abilities, and attributes.

I have a friend, a very good friend, who I love dearly, but the one thing that appealed to me, about her immediately, was her generosity.  (To everyone, and including me.)  She always, gives from her heart.  And, to share, her blessings, totally blew me away. It was extravagant, and made one notice.  So I am totally, inspired by her, myself, to be a giver.  Well, thats how it works.

When we sharpen, the countenance of one another.  We come out being better, people, by doing things, that reflect Christ.  Christ was a giver, my friend is a giver.  That has sharpened, my sense, to be a giver.   I want to be the kind of person, that draws out the best, of someone.  Not the worst.

When I know something about someone, and they reveal their pet peeve to me, I consider it.  I don’t want to “push” that button, to make them angry, or hurt them. Or bring out the worst in them.  It would be evil, to have that kind of knowledge, and use something about them, to irk them.

Yet, there are people, who will take knowledge, or your history, and purposely, try to hurt you.  Or there are people, who may have knowledge, to help you, and instead, they withold it.  So you will not get the benefit.  I just want to say, that again is evil.  Do you know that,what you reap is what you sow?  In other words, “What goes around, comes around.”  You will get yours….whatever it is you give in life.  It is a principle, like what goes up, must come down.

Anyway, so when that happens, thats what they know, and thats what they have learned, and practiced.  Sadly, so, sometimes, it is hard to trust people.

But, I want to encourage you, to be someone, who sees the best in others.  To not hold back, a compliment, or an opportunity, to sharpen your friends, countenance, gifts and callings etc.  Encourage one another, in Christ, by the word, and be the kind of friend, that is loyal, true, and always a friend.  And so very, importantly, and I cannot let this pass.  PRAY FOR YOUR FRIENDS!

I have had friends, that just went away, the friendship was dissolved.  But in my heart, I will always love them, and pray for them, and pray, God bless them.  I just wont be able to encourage them, or sharpen their countenance, because they made the choice to leave.

I admit, myself, I have left friends, because they were not a good influence.  But I still love them, in my heart.  A friend loves at all times.  Proverbs 17:17.  Anyway, Be a friend, who is true, who will be there in any need.  And then see, the blessing, of that person in return, and see yourself changed.  See yourself, at the best of your ability.

If anything, be your own best friend, and sharpen yourself.  Never forget, God is your best friend.  Christ will, never leave you or forsake you.  Even if others do.  Christ won’t. Hold onto that, and let it make you the best, you can be.  The word of God, is sharper, then any two-edged sword.  Let it sharpen you to be the best.

I tell you this as a friend, and I do not even know you….

Just my thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I thank you, that you sent Christ, to be the greatest of friends.  A friend, that will never leave or forsake me.  A friend, who will counsel me, and guide me.  A friend, who protects me, and guards my heart.  By your truth, Father.  Lord, I want to be a good friend, one, that will sharpen, the countenance of my friend, to help my friends, be the best that they can be.  Lord, I want to be a friend, to your friends.  And an enemy to your enemy.  I want to please you, in this called “friendship.”  Lord, may everything, I do be a reflection of Christ.  In His love, His compassion, and in His truth.  I want to speak truth, like He did.  But always in Love.  So, love would be magnified.  For you are Love Father.  Thank you, in Jesus name.  Amen

WHEN GOD GIVES YOU AN ASSIGNMENT OF LOVE….


God does give us assignments of love.  It could be anything, that he may test us in, or to validate His word in us.

It could be a mission, God places on your heart, something, that will make you His hands and feet, maybe even His mouth, to speak a word.  But to do something in love.

Helping someone, feeding someone, giving water to someone.  Making your money, work, for His Kingdom.  So you give, from your heart, with love.  An assignment of love, from God, can be anything, and when you are His child, you will not only be tested in this, but you will hear His voice, and know, you have been given an assignment of love.  You know, you have to obey.

God gave me one today.  He gave me an assignment of love.  To walk in love, with someone, who was rude to me.

Did I expect HIS assignment, or even this persons rudeness?  No.  But I know His voice.  And I just felt him say, “let it go”... And my little assignment of love, may not mean anything to anybody but to God, me, and maybe the person, God has assigned me to love.

It may produce fruit, but thats not for me to know really.  I am just called to water the plant, with love.  And most likely, this person, will never acknowledge it.  Or love me in return.  But, thats o.k.  I have come to expect it.

After all I know this persons track record in this.  But I know, that I know, I must do my part in love.   I must love this person, pray for this person, be kind to this person, be cordial to this person, and all out of love.

But today, as I prayed for this person.  I felt peace.  I felt like old wounds did not hurt any more.  Even with other people.  You see, Christ told us, that when we are His children.  We are to love.  We are to forgive.  We are to know, if they hated him, and they did, for they crucified him.  They could do it to us too.  The pharisees, hated Jesus.  They were “religious” people.  And I always test the spirits, to see if they are love…..if they are not.  I wonder if they are a “pharisee” spirit.

Anyway, the reason, I write this, is maybe you can relate….  To anyone, who has been mean to you…From that snobby person in church, or that rude and aloof person, you see, at church, or anywhere, and they totally disregard you.  They don’t talk to you, and if they do, it is condescending, it is patronizing.  You are taking up their space…Yikes.  And excuuuuuuuse me!  Or it could be a family member.  Whoever…again, just forgive, and love, and walk in love.  Let the hurts all go.

This could be any where.  Including your job site, etc.  Well, maybe God is giving you a “Love Assignment” too.

I want to encourage you.  Walk in love, with that person.  It may hurt so very much, because you knew what you got, was not what you deserved.  You see it clearly, you are being snubbed.  Its not your imagination.  They are either jealous of you, and giving place to the devil, in these acts, that are not of love.  But you know.… A person, can pick up on those mean, and hurtful of all vibes. And it hurts, I know.

But we are to imitate our savior, and his example in love.  Protect yourself, with Gods love….and go to Him. And love….

Look at Christ.  Christ loved us so much, that he obeyed God the father, and went to the cross for us.  He took each beating, he took, each stripe, and they nailed my savior on the cross, for our sins.

The devil, thought, it would be a victory, by destroying the son of God.  But what a dummy the devil is.  This was Gods plan, because He gave His son, power, to be resurrected.  So Christ, went to hell, after He was crucified, and on that third day, probably gave the devil, a black eye, and took the keys from hell.  To set us free!  Hallelujah!!! (Giving the devil a black eye, is not scriptural)

But this is scripture, don’t give evil for evil.  Recompense to no man evil for evil.  Provide things honest in the sight of all men.  If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, or give place unto wrath for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.  Romans 12:17-19

And I am not advocating giving anyone a black eye literally.  I must especially, make that clear, because some of my friends, can attest, I was a fighter.  And in the natural, before I knew Christ, if someone was mean to me, or a bully, or was just plain mean, I would have given them a piece of my mind, at least…..

But…I am talking about Love, the love of a forgiving and kind Father.  That God is. I am talking about my savior, my friend, my counselor, my provider, and healer, and so much more.  He is love.

Christ did all that for us.  He is the greatest example of love.  And when I think of who I was again, the fighter, the loser, the kid, who missed it….I think of what Christ did for me.  And all I want to do is love.  Because I know, at what a great sacrifice His life was to give to me, to you, to all of us.

I don’t want to leave this world, hating anyone.  Or being wounded, by old pains.  For sometime, I will stand before my creator.  I want to keep my armor on, and quench the fiery darts of the enemy.  And the only way, I can, is by being love, as He is love.  Turning the cheek, the other way, as Christ turned His cheek.

And maybe, because I was a fighter naturally, I know, I have to love supernaturally.  In His love.  I have to be obedient.  So, if this person, and I ever communicate again.  Which I doubt.  But if we do, I will be nice, I will be cordial, I will be forgiving, and kind.  Because God gave me an assignment of love.

I also know, in this assignment.  Whenever, the Lord, brings this person to my mind, I will pray for this person.  If this person needed me, I would be there.  Because I know my assignment.  And I need to say this, as a vow, I will not speak negatively of this person, or undermine this person, and their ability.  Or who they are.  I will not speak against this person, in any way.  Because I know, the Holy spirit hears….

Anyway, God gave me an assignment to love, and I know I have to pass this test of love.  You just know…that you know, you have to be obedient to Love.  God is love.

Just my Thoughts….With love,

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope…

Father, I love you.  Thank you, for giving me this assignment to love.  Would you please help me to do this.  Cause I also know my past track record.  I need help.  Thank you, in Jesus name.  Amen
