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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read this scripture. Quietly, without any distractions….

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

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

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

“Just My Thoughts…..

Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope and Honor

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

DAYDREAM YOUR BEST DREAM~WRITE THE VISION~WRITE YOUR PRAYER


Habakkuk 2:2

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.  

As a writer, I know, the power, I have to write. I know, I can create an atmosphere, to be an expression, of who I am in Christ. And I can use my words, to either build up or destroy.

I always want to be careful to choose my words carefully.I want to bless God, and bless you, his people. I want people, to see the goodness of God. That miracles are available. That all things are possible, because of who He is. That Christ died for you, so you can live abundantly.

I always want to be an expression of love…… I always want to be writing, whatever HE puts on my heart, because I see myself, as a servant of God.

Well, today, I want to inspire you. And perhaps, encourage you. You may be daydreaming about something. Did you know that is a vision God has given to you? This photograph, confirms that! His word, is that confirmation!

He knows everything about you, every thought, every hope, and dream. Today, there may be something on your heart, you long for. Something, you may want, or desire. It could be that vacation, that big house, that healing….A new business.  An idea, you want to turn into a reality…..

Whatever it is…..

Now, pull out a pen and pencil, and write it down. Yes write it down. You don’t have to make a lengthy expression, unless you want to. It could just be a paragrah. But be specific. Its your vision!  It is now a prayer.

Then look up a scripture that would support that promise from God, and claim it. Write it down! Now, keep it in your Bible, or a place, where you will see it often.  This is your prayer….to remind you of Gods promises!

Yesterday, I daydreamed. That was my vision. And, I don’t do that often, but I know God put this on my heart. And whenever God puts it on my heart, I want to be faithful, to him, and to others, to share, to bless God, and you.

Have a wonderful day, in the Lord.

Write your vision….and see God do a new thing! After all its his word.  It is prayer….a reminder to you, and God, of Gods wonderful promises.  Don’t let the dream go!

AND THY SERVANT IS IN THE MIDST OF THY PEOPLE WHICH THOU HAST CHOSEN, A GREAT PEOPLE, THAT CANNOT BE NUMBERED, NOR COUNTED FOR MULTITUDE. GIVE THEREFORE THY SERVANT AN UNDERSTANDING HEART TO JUDGE THY PEOPLE, THAT I MAY DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD; FOR WHO IS ABLE TO JUDGE THIS THY GREAT SO GREAT A PEOPLE? AND THE SPEECH PLEASED THE LORD…..I Kings 3:9

Much love in Christ, and Praise be to my Lord, God through Jesus Christ. Holy Spirit, Inspire us….

Elena Ramirez

p.s. Feel free to share this….so others, can be inspired, by their visions as well. You may very well, be making someones dreams come true….Including yours!

Father, I praise you, Lord, you know my vision is to serve you, and I do claim my hearts desire.  I have obeyed you in this, and written the vision down.  It is my prayer, and I believe it is point of contact, to remind you, and myself, that you will do this great thing.  Thank you Lord, for this witty idea, and may it bless others as well.  For their dreams to become a vision, that will turn into a prayer.  In Jesus name.  Amen

SPEAKING TO YOUR MOUNTAINS



I live in Colorado, we have plenty of Rocky Mountains. I am used to them. But sometimes, when you are used to something, you put up with it. Today, I am speaking to my mountains….and telling them, they have to go. Because I have to “go” and do great things in my life. They can stay, but I have to go. Even here, I had to rephrase that. Because sometimes, one can be their own mountain.

And sometimes, well, when our words are not chosen carefully, we do put up with our Mountains. Remember the fig tree, Christ spoke to, it died. It did not produce life?

Remember, we always have a choice, to either speak life or death to a situation, according to Proverbs 18:21. For life and death is in our tongue, and we eat the fruit thereof.

I want to eat life, I want to speak life, I want to speak, new things, new blessings, for me, for others, for you, for my family, for our health, for my finances. For my families finances. For the true blessings of God, that can only be produced, because of who he is in me. Because of who God is….

Mostly, though, I want to speak to my mountains for my Lord, He has given me a great tool, in my words, and I choose to use it carefully. For life abundantly, Christ came to give life abundantly. He died for me. I live for him……

The word of God, was sent, to prosper in that thing, and it will not return void. I am speaking Gods word. Into my life, so I can go on, and do greater things…..This is my prayer, and I am asking, believing, in faith, and I shall receive.

Elena Ramirez

Father, with every breath that I take, I do praise you, and adore you.  I speak to my mountains, Lord, I can speak to them, and they will be moved.  But I pray, that I can leave my mountains behind, and that I can “go”  to the new land you have promised.  I speak this in faith, in love, I believe, this pleases you.  I walk in love, and choose to forgive others.  I choose to do your will.  I submit to you, I resist the devil, he will flee.  Thank you for fighting all of my battles.  The glory, honor and praise is yours.  Someday soon, I will look back, and see that you removed me from my mountains….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,

Elena Ramirez

GETTING REAL BEFORE THE YEAR ENDS…..


Something, about the year ending, makes me think, of the past years events, and life, and analyzing, who I am, what I want to do, and goals etc.

And not that I am not real, because I am an open book in so many ways….I am always pouring myself out.  And, one usually knows where I am coming from.

But, I think if you want to grow, you really have to take into account, these things, so you can grow.  You have to look to God, and within.

I don’t know about you, but when I think of change, I think of resolutions, and that they are nice, but what are they based on?  It seems like people toss out their resolution, the day after New Years.

And I have concluded, at least for me, in order to grow, and really be the person, I want to be, I have to get real with myself.  I cannot just accept who I am, and think that is o.k.  Though, I do love who God is changing me to be, I realize, that I need to continue to grow, and that sometimes requires pressure, challenging myself, getting real……………

Like a diamond, in the rough, I know, I have some jagged ends.  Things, that need to be refined. Polished. Things, that need attention in my life, in my personality.  Being real, with myself, and facing those fears, facing myself, not only for physical needs, but spiritual needs, that need to change, in order for me to grow.

And more so, (Thank you Creflo Dollar Ministries) because I have been learning about love, Gods love, and how kind, and gentle God is to me, I realize, as I see myself, I need to apply that same kind of love, yet be firm, unrelenting, till I achieve those results, I long for. Because God never gives up….on us.  His love is that great.  Even when we can’t see it, he will take us around that mountain forty times, if he has to.  Remember Gods people, the Israelites, and it took them that long, till they got to the promised land.  They had to get it right.

And how do I do that?  Well, being objective in this, and not stereotyping myself, or others, but just basing it on Gods word, I know that LOVE is the key.  I know, that is where, I have to be committed.  Even, if I do not understand my own faults, or flaws, I know the word of God, is the key, to expose those things in my life, that need changing refining.  For as the Bible says, we look in the mirror, and we can dimly see, who we are, by what it says.  I CORINTHIANS 13:12  FOR NOW WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS; DARKLY BUT THEN FACE TO FACE NOW I KNOW IN PART; BUT THEN SHALL I KNOW AS ALSO I AM KNOWN.

We change, by the word of God, because it makes us look at ourselves, and we don’t change the word, but the word, of God, changes us.  To be more like Christ, requires, that I commit, to give myself completely, and wholly to him to be holy.  Those inadequacies, those holes in my spirit, in my love, I choose to replace with his love, so I can be the best I can be.

More then anything, because I want to be real, in my life, and not a phony, which all can see through, I realize, that what I give, comes back to me.  It is a principle.  Like what goes around comes around.  For we reap what we sow.  To attract those things, I want in life, I have to make a conscious effort to change.  And if I do not know how to change I have to be committed to God, consistent in my walk with him, till those desired efforts will turn into results.  Being prayerful, humble, repenting….and then doing it over, and over again, till something changes, something clicks.  But not letting go, not giving up, being tenacious, holding onto Christ with all of my being, with every part of my soul, and spirit, consistent.  If I want people to be kind, I have to be kind.  If I want God to bless me, I have to bless God, and others….Do you get what I am saying.?

I realize, that the key is love.  Now, I need to apply it according to Gods word, and maybe, by getting real now, real blessings, real evidence, will be manifested in my life, next year, because I did an inventory, and I committed it to God, and in prayer…..For change.  To be real, before the year ends.

Just my thoughts, with love,  Elena Ramirez

A Prayer of Hope….

Lord, how can I in this public prayer, say all that I desire to change in me, so I can be effective for you.  And because I cannot, I take comfort in knowing, you know what is best, and that you know, what the future holds.  I do commit it to you, and my trust is in you, and I pray, you do change the things in me that need changing….so truly, I can be a true reflection of love, that comes only from you, and what Christ did.  Lord, I pray, we all take inventory, and get real with you.  Privately, and in public, the fruit of that will show.  In Jesus name.  Amen
