MY SECRETS GOD HAS GIVEN ME SO ANYONE CAN BE AN EXPERT ON THE BIBLE ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


POLQPkERTTq%WPR3o%LEZg.jpgYou can be an expert of the Bible.  But let me offer some of these secrets, that I have learned through my lifetime.   I have an understanding of Gods word.  And I am not trying to brag, and I am not in category of being called a Theologian.  

But I have hid Gods word in my heart, and when I need it, I know where to look.fullsizeoutput_1db1.jpeg

It does take diligence.  It takes the desire, to learn who God is, and to understand His ways.  To know Him personally.  It takes the desire to search!!!

For me, God has always tried to teach me, and I have not always been diligent, in this, but for me, falling to the bottom of the barrel, made me search, and I have not stopped searching.

When I say, I was at the bottom of the barrel, this was a time, where I was lost.  Where I was controlled by sin, because I was naive, and I just knew I could not stay there.  I was very misguided as a young woman, and as a teenager.  I had terrible judgment.

But as a child, my mother did try to teach me about who God is, by allowing me to go to Christian vacation, bible schools.  I thank God for that because it helped train me to at least look and search for God.  

TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO:  AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.  PROVERBS 22:6  KJV. 

There I had participated in Bible memory classes, and there were awards, given to those who could memorize scripture.  I liked the challenge, and would try and memorize Gods word.  And get awards.  Today serving, and surviving, with Gods word, makes the difference to me, and I would never let go of my word, from God. 

But those lessons, I put behind, when I grew up a little.  I wanted to party, but I left God out of the equation.  And sadly, I even denied God. Worse, mistake I could make in my life.

But knowing Gods word, even in the limited amount that I knew as a child, compelled me to seek God, for answers, because I needed answers.  This is how I got out of the bottom of the barrel.  I needed to know why my life was so messed up, for lack of better words.

I knew I had to repent to God, that was taught to me, at an early age.  I knew, I had to clear the slate, so to speak.  Because I knew, scripture said, God would not hear me, if I had sin.  I knew I had reaped my sins.  In other words, the things that I had did in sin, I saw that there were spiritual curses.  

So, I repented.  In fact, I still repent daily, I know how good repentance is for the soul.  I knew Christ died for my sins.  I knew, that He was resurrected.  I began seeing, how powerful His sacrifice was, and it made me come to my knees, and seek God.  Don’t be one of those who mocks repentance.  Did you know that is an indicator of pride?  

So long story short, this was my motive into searching for answers.  And to know God.

The following is just a basic draft, summarized.  I suppose I could turn this into a book, but I want to give you quick tips, so you can in your own way, know God, but also be someone, who can use Gods word, and know Gods word, when facing any kind of situation where Gods word is required to bring light, or insight, even to someone else, who needs to know truth.

But no doubt about it, knowing Gods Holy King James word, enhances your faith.

And this is where, I have grown myself.  Because I know that I know there is a God.

His word, has so many capabilities, that I know I am scratching the surface.  But if you wonder why your faith is not strong, it could be very well, because you don’t know Gods word, and what He says.  It could also be because you don’t use a King James.  

This will affect your judgement.  Your words, and outlook:

  1. Ask God to open your eyes to scriptures, He wants you to learn.
  2. Read a King James Bible daily.  I read mine in the morning, and at night, before bedtime.
  3. Get a good Bible app, where you can download the King James bible.
  4. Write scriptures down.
  5. Remember that the King James has “key” words for you to search where the others do not have those key words, to find the truth.  Even if you do not remember the entire verse, or where it is, if you at least remember a key word, it will help you search.  And find the scripture you need for reference.
  6. Buy a Bible Concordance.  This will have thousands of words, for you to search for scripture references.
  7. Consider, creating a scripture journal.
  8. Share scripture with others on social media.
  9. Don’t get lazy, when it comes to knowing scripture, and search.  The secret in this, is that if you have a learning spirit, God will show you wondrous things in His word.
  10.  Get creative using scripture.  I like to post a scripture to a photograph now and then as part of my ministry.  And with all my writings, I apply scripture, as a foundation, so folks, will see, that I am not just talking, the talk, but I have the King James scripture to back it up.
  11. Stay hungry, and thirsty for Gods word.  He will fill you with truth, but you have to want to learn who He is.  
  12. Don’t let your bible get dusty.  A good sign of a well balanced person in Christ is someone whose Bible shows wear and tear on it.

What I have noticed, and this makes me very sad, but I am sure God as well, is that Christians do not know Gods word.  This makes them very vulnerable to the world, to those who hate God, to those who purposely challenge us, as Christians.  You are not completely wearing your armor of God.   And whose fault is that?

When you need a word of God, you should be somewhat familiar, with what God says in a matter, to even be able to go to a King James Bible and do a search with a key word.

These subject matters come up often, but instead of pulling out a scripture to say,  “Thus saith the Lord.”  People are left not knowing truth.

From homosexuality, (which by the way, that word is not in a King James bible) but it is an abomination to God.

To abortion.

To even matters of whether or not we should pray for our leaders, these verses, are in a Bible.  Which reminds me, pray for our President.  Don’t you see the spiritual battle America is in?oVVGLhJKTo6LVp1ubRxVEgBut if you don’t open up a King James bible, you won’t get any understanding.

I personally, do not understand this.  Is it laziness?  Is it just pride, to think you can find your own way in life?  But what I will say, is that you have the tool there, but to me, when you don’t know, what God says, you hurt yourselves.  

And I will be totally frank, you are not acting like a true soldier of the Lord, if you don’t know holy word.  The Holy Spirit, cannot prompt you in matters, to even give you discernment, because you won’t learn it, you won’t use it, and you get lazy.  

The sad thing is, that you could be light. You could bring light to the darkness, that blinds yourself, and others.  You could warn someone.  And don’t confuse, warning with judging, because we are called to warn, and love warns.  Read Ezekiel 33, from a King James.  

Its up to you, but you know, with what I know from Gods word, I know it has built my faith.  It has given me boldness, courage, because I know what God says about some things.  

And no, I do not proclaim to know everything, but everything I know about God is because I searched.  If you don’t search, you only have yourself to blame.  But I actually think its stupid, to ignore, what God says.

Yes, He loves us.  But there will come a time, and in fact, the Holy Spirit, prompted me even this morning, to remind us all, that yes God loves us, but His wrath will be revealed for those who mock and disobey.  Who play at church, and religion.  But have no true substance, who have not taken word to root in their souls.  This is wrong, in His sight.  God is not mocked.  Read Galatians 6:7 from a King James.

And I don’t care who you are, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God, and if you mock God or His truth, that wrath will be revealed.  We all reap what we sow.  Oh my gosh, if you only knew what you are doing, when you deny God, or when you deny His truth, or you mock Him.  

I know, the hard way, I reaped some terrible things, because of my disobedience.  But it made me run to the cross, it made me seek God, and seek His truth.  

And I have the fear of God.

fullsizeoutput_1dcd

I was so spiritually attacked.  I thought, I was losing my mind.  I was so fearful, paranoid, and the enemy knew that, I did not have a strong defense.  Now I roar back like a lion myself, because of who Christ is in me, and at that ugly old devil, and tell him to back off, because I know what God says.  My courage, and boldness, is there.  My armor of God is on, and my sword of truth, which is my King James bible is sharp!  And I remind the devil, he has lost the battle because of Christ.  See I know the Battle is Gods, I know the power of God, this is why I glorify Him, and I will not be ashamed.  And when I know I cannot fight it, or things seem impossible, I am reminded what the Holy King James scriptures say.  That all things are possible with God. I pray, to God, and ask Him to release my angels, by God, to fight those demons, and all I have to do is submit to God, resist the enemy, and the enemy will flee.  

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING.  FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.  I JOHN 3:8  King James. 

Folks, I don’t know what else to tell you, but start studying His word, don’t be one of those flaky Christians.  Because some day you, and I and the world, will stand before God, and what will He say? fullsizeoutput_1db5.jpeg

Please start using your King James bibles.  Theres a lost world out there, and a battle for souls, and you could win a soul for Christ, but you could also deliver yourself.  

I have given you photographs of scriptures, from a King James.  When you are prompted, look up these words, because they are KEY WORDS and go to a good Bible app.  Or a King James concordance, and search.  I could give you the verse numbers, and chapters.  But then you won’t grow.  Searching yourself, will make you learn and grow. 

This is why you don’t want to use a corrupted Bible, that has changed the words.  You won’t find the truth.   Please search for God, and search for truth. Our world, our country, needs you to be faithful to know what God says, if you call yourself a Christian.

I want you to especially remember this last photograph.  If you want to get into the Holy city, and have your name in the book of life.  You need to know what God says about not using holy word.  

I will share this verse, in this post, because I want you to know exactly what the consequences are, for messing with Gods holy word, and using word that is corrupted.  It is Revelation 22:18-19.  Please note as you read it,  you can be denied access to the Holy city.  You can have your name removed from the book of life.  Don’t play with your salvation.  Learn and know what God says.  

fullsizeoutput_1dd1

Remember these verses, and search!   READ YOUR BIBLE!  Share this, at least try and open someones eyes.  Besides your own….

Blessings, in Christ,

GUARDING YOUR HEART ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2277.jpegSometimes, it takes life, life experiences, other people, and just negative outcomes to teach you to keep and guard your heart with all diligence.  To obey God in this.

PROVERBS 4:23 KEEP THY HEART WITH ALL DILIGIENCE; FOR OUT OF IT ARE THE ISSUES OF LIFE.  KING JAMES 

This can be a hard lesson of life.  It has been for me in many ways.  I thought, with my heart.  I thought and felt with my emotions.  I was an opened book.  I got off balance.  And a false balance is an abomination to God.

A FALSE BALANCE IS ABOMINATION TO THE LORD:  BUT A JUST WEIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT.  PROVERBS 11:1  KING JAMES.  

But sometimes we don’t see it.  We don’t recognize when we are off balance, nor when we are not guarding our hearts.  This is why it is so important to keep seeking God.  

Out of hearts, can come good and evil, and sometimes, one can call good, evil, and evil good.  And woe unto those, who do not see this.

This is why its so important, that we do not let our hearts rule our decisions, our thoughts, our motivations, but we bring it all to the obedience of Christ.  This is why its so important, to give our hearts to Christ.

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.  II CORINTHIANS 10:5  KING JAMES.

This is a very powerful scripture when it comes to the matters of our heart.  Because what we think will affect our heart.  What we think and feel and yes express…

Do we look to see purposely, what exalt’s itself, when it comes to what God says, and what we should know, about God?  

This is why we need to obey Christ.  This is why we need to have the mind of Christ, in understanding.  This is why sometimes, we must keep and guard our hearts.

Suffering, teaches us, sometimes, if we are opened to what God says.  Because we can see God correcting us.  We can see, if we seek Him, there is a solution, to our pain or sorrow.  This is why the scripture says, count it all joy.  

Now I admit its not easy.  But when you are challenged, with anything, the goal should be to seek God.  To help you.  To show you the path to take.  Pride is such a terrible thing to have, because it will hinder you.  But when you suffer, and as you guard your heart, if you do so, in Christ, He will heal your pain, your sorrow, this hurt you feel.  

Sometimes, when you are wounded, this is the most important time to guard and keep your heart.  I sense that for me.  I go silent.  I withdraw.  I trust God.  I pray more.  And God reaches out to me, and puts salve on my wounds.  Cleans the poison, or offenses away from me. He draws me closer to Him.  But I have my part, in this.  

Be humble to God, and don’t guard your heart from Him.  Because He knows you, anyway, but He knows, what you can become or be in Him in Christ.  But if you withdraw from God, you only hurt yourself more.  

AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING, SHALL KEEP YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS.  PHILIPPIANS 4:7  KJV.

Be careful who you confide in.  Be careful who you let into your heart.  There are times, you want or need to talk, to vent.  But be careful.  Because not everyone will guard your heart, as well, and can use what you share against you.  And that is a very hard lesson of life.  I know. 

See, I know, we all walk in life, and have different journeys.   But in my journey of life, I was so naive, when it came to people.  In trusting them.  In just being friends with some folks.  

To some, I gave them my heart, and they did not honor it.  Or they would not have done or said, the things they did.  In some cases, the wounds reopen.  Especially lately. Its been a rippling affect, but I am breaking the soul ties, by seeking God.  Yes, I always add, I forgive.  But it did do something to me.  

God has always taken people out of my life, that were not good, for me, but I was not aware of how much of my heart, I tried to share, but many stomped on me, and my feelings when they got a chance.  I was sometimes stubborn.  Not wanting to believe the worse about some folks.  

This has done something to my trust level.  So, I am not the opened book I once was.  And it may not even be fair to some, who may not have ulterior motives, or who may be true. But when it comes to people any more, I am just very cautious.  

I will not share my heart, like I used to.  And I don’t want to make my own heart cold.  Because this is what brings life.  By being expressive.  By being love.  Taking chances.  Theres the balance again.  

I just realize.  I need to just trust God.  Yet, I know, how important guarding my heart is.  

I will guard it, and keep it.  

In Christ,

Elena Ramirez 

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2278.jpeg

I love how God makes connections, and yes even in prayer.  

I see how He uses, the prayer, of a righteous person, to avail much.  

CONFESS YOUR FAULTS ONE TO ANOTHER, AND PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER, THAT YE MAY BE HEALED.  THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH.  JAMES 5:16  KJV.  

He seems to bring everything together, for a heart, that loves Him.  I see His hand in prayer.  I know about prayer, because I was conceived because of prayer.  Long story short, mama could not have children, my father prayed for me, I was conceived.

Because I know that God knows us, I know, I am also called to pray.  

BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE BELLY I KNEW THEE; AND BEFORE THOU CAMEST FORTH OUT OF THE WOMB I SANCTIFIED THEE, AND I ORDAINED THEE A PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.  Jeremiah 1:5  KJV.  

Think about that.  God knew you during the time, of your growth in the womb.  Makes one sad, when we think of all those, that do not even make it out of the womb, because  their mothers, did not see the value of life.  Or even in knowing God.  Sad to see, abortion or infanticide accepted.  

I pray, even now, they open their eyes, to God.  Each child has a gift, that God has given, which leads me even more as to why praying for one another is so important.  

So, as I continue in this thought of prayer, I want to encourage you to pray.  To think about getting right with God, in the sense, so you can be righteous, and your prayers will count.

Get right with God.  It is a process, even in just being able to have access to the Holy Spirit.  But I know God even hears the cry, or the desire of the heart, if we come before Him, humble, and even repentant.   See, if there is sin there, God says, He will not hear.

IF I REGARD INIQUITY IN MY HEART, THE LORD WILL NOT HEAR ME.  Psalms 66:18  KJV

So, the goal is always to get right with God, especially if you want Him to hear you, but also to answer you.  In prayer. 

I know a lot of people don’t agree with my method, in this, but as a Prayer intercessor, I actually believe in re-dedicating yourself to God, to get results.  By repentance.  It clears the slate. I know people don’t agree, because they have challenged me.  But, I know God does give answers.  So don’t ever give up on prayer.  

And well, to conclude this, somewhat, pray for others.  Pray for those who have hurt you.  Pray, because maybe inadvertently you may have hurt them too.  Just pray for folks.  Remember, when we get our eyes off of ourselves, onto God, for others, He hears that.

Remember Job from your King James bible?  He prayed for his friends.  And God answered him, and blessed him, and gave him double for his troubles.  He came out of it, hurt, but with a very humble and repentant heart.  

Look, its imperative that we are praying before trouble happens.  Its imperative, that we believe in miracles, before a miracle is desperately needed.  If we all increased our prayer life, to be dedicated in that, I think the world could, and would be a different place.  I believe we could avoid things, troubles, situations….

Right now, I am praying for someone I know, that I call a friend.  She needs a miracle.  She needs God to intervene on her behalf.  I won’t say what it is, but I know she does need a miracle.  An answer to prayer.  

The enemy, has tried to divide us, as friends and I see it.  And the circumstances are so out of my control.  But I also see, I need to pray for her.  God knows all the details.  He understands, and has a way.  But I am dedicated to pray for her.    

It seems like we are trying to be accountable with one another, we are confessing our faults, and even though their are wounds, we are trying to walk in love.  I don’t know where our friendship will go.  But I do pray God bless her, especially now.  

I pray she gets an answer.  Will you pray for her too?

In any event, I do want to give you a secret to praying.  That I believe I have learned….

Don’t have anything against anyone.  Don’t covet, or be jealous of them.  Or anybody for that matter.  Be happy for people.  Forgive people.  Release, resentment, or offenses, and just really pray for someone.  Even someone who has hurt you, or someone you have hurt, or someone who you are no longer in contact with.  

Theres are spiritual ties, that you can receive, in a negative way, that can interfere with your prayer life, if you hold onto these strange resentments, jealousies, or hate.  I believe they can block prayers from being answered.  So I try to be careful in these matters.  

Pray to God, to ask God to help you.  Remember Job, again God blessed him as he prayed. For his friends.  And his friends, were somewhat judgmental, perhaps a little jealous, and they challenged him.  They spoke truth, I believe, but you know sometimes, truth can be harsh.  After all, Job, had terrible losses.  He had suffered quite a bit.  But Job would not let them have the upper hand or let them make him feel inferior, even when he answers them, stating:

BUT I HAVE UNDERSTANDING AS WELL AS YOU; I AM NOT INFERIOR TO YOU: YEA, WHO KNOWETH NOT SUCH THINGS AS THESE?  JOB 12:3  KING JAMES.

Job, is a great example, even to me, in situations with friends, because I have lost a few friends.  Even Christian friends, and I know one thing about myself, is I never have been jealous of my friends.  And I am happy for them.  I cannot recall ever putting a head trip on them, because of what they had, or who they were.  When they are blessed, or if they are blessed.  

If something is wrong with them, in the sense, that they may have character flaws, at this point, I just pray for them.  I try to extend grace.  Maybe I do come across judgmental, in other matters, but I try not to be….  I try to extend grace with truth. But oh well.  But I know the difference.  

In fact, I pray for them now, because maybe I wasn’t mature enough when I knew them either, I don’t know, I guess, I relate to Job in a lot of ways.  I may have stopped praying for them, when our friendships ended.  But lately, God has been putting it on my heart to pray for those who hurt me.   To forgive.  To walk in love. Like Job did. 

So, I will pray for people, and I pray, I release them, in all things.  I think there is a secret to just accepting people, extending grace.  And being happy for people.  When they are happy.  Or blessed.  

So pray for your friends, be careful with the jealousy, and comparing yourself with others.  Because truth is, we all have our faults.  We all sin, and we all come short of the glory of God.  

I think there’s the secret, when we can repent, and just love, forgive, and pray for one another.  No matter what.  The greatest commandment is to love, God, and then love others.  Be accountable.  Be apologetic, I know it soothes my soul, when someone apologizes.  

Job is a great example of how God can bless someone, as he prayed for others…..

AND THE LORD TURNED THE CAPTIVITY OF JOB, WHEN HE PRAYED FOR HIS FRIENDS: ALSO THE LORD GAVE JOB TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAD BEFORE.  JOB 42:10  KING JAMES.  

I hope, you pray for one another.  I hope, I gave you indicators, a hint, to see, what God says about prayer, and how prayers can be stopped, if we are not right with God.  Or even others.  

Blessings, and love,

TURN YOUR WORRY INTO WORSHIP TO GOD ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4592.jpegO COME, LET US WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN:  LET US KNEEL BEFORE THE LORD OUR MAKER.  PSALM 95:6.  King James. 

Sometimes, when you go through things, it actually seems like things intensify.  It seems like it is spiritual battle.  Spiritual battle is different, then being spiritually attacked.  

But one must know how to deal with life, with these battles, one might face.

For me right now, I feel so inundated.  I have a lot on my plate.  I have challenges, here and there, and sadly, I even think I contribute to some of these challenges.  And this has hurt me.  

So, I find myself, wanting to be quiet.  Wanting to be left alone.  Wanting to just heal, pray, and worship God.  

I remember as a little girl, I used to use this process as well.  It was a mechanism, where sometimes, I tried to shut down.  I wanted to process, what I was going through.  I did not want to react.  I wanted to soothe my wounds.  I wanted to heal, because if I have been hurt, I did not always know how to react.  

I don’t internalize my emotional pains, I have always let them go.  I don’t swallow something hurtful.  I don’t let them take root into my spirit, to cause any kind of bitterness, I always take them to God.  

Because the root of that, could be destructive, and I am aware of that.  God has taught me to let go of things, and give them to Him.  And its been very healthy for me. 

If I have to cry, I will cry, if I have to speak my mind, I will speak my mind.  But I don’t let it stay bottled up in me, but there are times, when I cannot speak, I cannot put things into words, and I have to sort things out.  But I still go to God.  

I can get angry.  I can be sharp, and I can come out fighting.  And I really do not like that. About myself.  But I can.  So, when I feel pushed, or I feel like I am between a rock and a hard place, I will come out swinging, and I can say and do some things, I am not always proud of.  

And I think anybody could understand that, there are times, when one says, enough!

Thats why I know, being left alone, at some times, is so important to me.

My mother God bless her soul.  Did not understand that about me.  She did not leave me alone, to just catch my breath, or to just try to let the dust settle, after a disagreement, or a time of differences.  Challenges, etc. 

She would actually push my buttons.  She would go for the win, because I was wounded. When she did these things, it grieved me.  She did not understand my need to be left alone.  It was somewhat one-sided, and selfish on her part, but she did not have that skill of quite understanding me, in these kind of matters.  

I forgive her, I just know, some of her history, and she had a tough life.  Hurt people, sometimes hurt people more.  But still I had to deal with it, but now I recognize when someone is not being respectful to my hurts, or pain, and I won’t put up with it.  

Instead, of letting me be alone, she would take the opportunity, to pursue whatever it was, and it grieved me, because so many times, I just wanted to be left alone.

I have learned through the years, whenever I feel wounded, I have learned to seek God.  To find solace in Him.  To take His holy King James word to heart, and I have learned to turn my worry into worship.  

That requires being alone, sometimes.  Away from people, friends, and yes even politics.  (smile) To process, to pray, to seek counsel from God.

Going to God, does something for me.  He understands me, He knows my weaknesses, my strengths, but He is a Holy God, and a King.  And so, I have to understand my role, as well as I have to understand His.  I cannot have sin, between me, and Him, not if I want answers, so I try to repent.  I try to be humble.  

But I also understand this about God, when we are not right with God, there is no peace to the wicked.  This can cause anxiety.

The devil, has always tried to use things against us, so we will not worship God.  So we would have anxiety.  Christ knew this, when He told the devil….

AND JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM, GET THEE BEHIND ME, satan, FOR IT IS WRITTEN, THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE.  LUKE 4:8 KJV.  

So especially, when I am going through something, I try to get closer to God, in worship. I know, I cannot have any distractions.  I cannot allow myself, to not heal.  I have to seek God, more so, and many do not understand that, about me, but that’s how I go about healing.  

When people do not understand that, and when they pursue something, with me, and they do not let me deal with something, because of my nature, which is bold, courageous, and yes forgiving, they show me no respect, and it does bother me.

They actually act, like I can bounce back, like nothing happened.  And I cannot always.  Some things that are said to me is like Kryptonite, I get turned off. 

So I am not able to just act like nothing was said, or done.  

Not any more, maybe I was able to do that more readily, but now it takes more time.

Even though, I forgive, my guard goes up.

At this point of my life, because of the things, I am going through, and have gone through lately, I am actually alienating myself, distancing myself from people.  Its not that I don’t love them, but I need to mend, and heal.  

I cannot say, hello or goodbye, all I can do is be silent.  I am wounded.  And when I am wounded, I sense anxiety.  The spiritual battle is there.  Little things could bother me.  Personal space, and time, need to be respected.  Its not that you want to be rude, but for me any way, I am at a loss of words.  And I cannot be phony about it. 

I find, worshipping God, turning my anxiety into praise to God with prayer, and thanks, helps me.  I turn my worries to God.  I take everything to His throne.  

And just pray to heal.  I am at that point right now, where I just want to heal.  But I am being silent, and I am being quiet in the spirit, avoiding people, social media, and things that disturb my peace.  

I do it, because I know what works for me, and getting closer to God, always is the remedy.  God is a spirit, and it may be complex in some ways, but so are we, so thats why, when our spirits are troubled, this is when especially we must turn our worries into worship.

GOD IS A SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.  JOHN 4:24  King James.  

I turn my worry into worship.  Writing, even here, helps, me sort my feelings out, and if this blesses someone as well, then I know God will use it, for His glory.  Please leave a comment, let me know if this, or any of my writings bless you.  Its nice to know, now and then. 

Lord, I praise you, I worship you in spirit, and in truth, and ask for your holy spirit, to guide me.  To heal me, because I do feel wounded.  I take this step, in releasing it, no pride, or ego in this, I cannot handle it without you. So I worship you, for being my counselor, my hope, my redeemer, my deliverer.  How sweet it is to go to you.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

SEEKING GODS DESIRE FULFILLED IS THE DESIRE OF MY HEART ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2234.jpegSeeking Gods desires fulfilled, is the desire of my heart.  

I love the Lord.  I thank him, and pray, to do so daily.  I pray to please Him.  To comfort Him, to give Him hope in us, as people.  Oh I know God knows everything, and I know He knows who belongs to Him, His precious people, His sheep.  But He is my God, and it grieves me, when I see what I do see sometimes…..

What could I do? And what can I do even now?  I don’t always know, but I am willing to try…

For,  I do pray to fulfill His desires, with the calling He has placed on my life.  

Life. It is a journey….  

Life can be wasted, if the focus is not on focus on God.  If it is not dedicated to God.  

I look back on my life.  And it brings tears to my eyes.  How much I wasted.  How much I sinned.  How terrible my judgment was.  How trusting I was in people.  And people let you down.  I wish, I had known more about the fear of God, in my walk, earlier, perhaps, I would have avoided some things….but I have learned. 

Nothing works, without Gods hand on it, nor does it bring joy.

I guess, that’s why I just have this revelation today.  Because He promises, that if we delight in Him, He will give us the desires of our heart.

DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD; AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART.  PSALM 37:4 KING JAMES.   

But I believe thats in giving Him the desire of His heart.  

Just my thought…. any way.  I hope you ponder on that thought, and think about it, for your own life.  For your own relationship with God.  

See, its been a while, where I have tried, and I am not perfect at this.  But I try to get my eyes off of what I want.  What I need.  Trying to be more grateful thankful.  Less of me, more of Him.  I have had my eyes on myself far too long.  And made mistakes… that have hurt myself. 

It has changed my perspective in….What I desire….yet the scripture says, He will give us the desires of our heart.  

I see folks, searching for power.  For fame.  For money.  For beauty.  And to me, these things do not bring me closer to the Lord.  In fact, I would actually state, that I think seeking those things do not come from Gods Kingdom, but from the enemy.  Gods enemy the devil.  

FOR THE WICKED BOASTETH OF HIS HEARTS DESIRE, AND BLESSETH THE COVETOUS, WHOM THE LORD ABHORRETH.  PSALMS 10:3  KING JAMES.   

So because he is Gods enemy, he is mine as well.  I will serve God, and I will be very careful not to give place to the enemy.  I submit to God, resist the devil, and he must flee.  

But I have, I know, by my sins.  I did give place to the enemy.  That did not produce righteous fruit, but even curses.  But those curses, are covered now by the blood of Jesus.  For I have repented, and I am very careful in spiritual matters now.  

Oh I know God can bless, but I have come to a place and its been a while, where I seek His face.  Not His hand.  And those kind of messages, where the prosperity message is promised, is so deceiving.  Because one does not grow. One does not understand who God is….

Nothing can take His place of just knowing He is there.  Nothing can comfort me more in a world, where anything is not predictable.  But who He is, and His promises.  All of them, that I find in my King James bible, that is holy.  

To me, having sweet fellowship, and peace, and just a sense of knowing He is there, blesses me, that is now the desire of my heart.  Sure there are things in life, I like, may even desire, but they can never, ever have priority over my relationship with my Lord.  

How I long to please Him give Him the desire of His heart.  By love, by obedience, by sweet fellowship, in prayer, by using the discernment He gives me, to know what to do by His Holy Spirit.  By understanding to try and keep His laws.  Oh many have a hard time with that, but God is a legal God, and thats where happiness is.

WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH: BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.  PROVERBS 29:18  KING JAMES. 

Thats my goal, my job in life, to give Him my Lord, the desires of His heart.  That will make me happy…  Just to be willing to Love Him with all my heart, soul, and mind….

Hope this blesses you today..

Hope this blesses God more…

Lord, I thank you Father.  Thank you Lord Jesus, Thank you, for everything, my God, by your Holy spirit.  I pray, Lord, that I am always mindful to make my desire, the desire of your Heart.  You are God, and there is none else.  You deserve all glory, all honor, and praise, to be mentioned.  Forgive me if I have ever failed you in this.  I am sure I have. And it grieves me.  But I pray, to please you.  I do love you Lord.  More than ever….For thy will to be done, in Jesus name.  Amen.  

LORD, THOU HAST HEARD THE DESIRE OF THE HUMBLE:  THOU WILL PREPARE THEIR HEART, THOU WILT CAUSE THINE EARS TO HEAR:   PSALM 10:17  KING JAMES.  

In Christ,

WHEN YOU COME TO A POINT WHERE YOU TRUST GOD & OBEY HIM ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2052.jpeg

There are days, when things seem so clearer.  Revelations from God.  And where you just come to a point, and you are not giving up.  

But you are giving into God, and totally trusting Him, obeying Him, walking in love, seeking to keep His commandments, and just  letting go, and letting God.  

You speak it, because thats where the commitment comes in.  You tell yourself, just trust God, just obey Him.  Do your part.  I search in my King James, bible for these truths.  Because its Holy word, not changed. And God speaks to me.  

You realize that this is the key, to life.  To make sense.  To come to grips with situations.  Because life is so unpredictable.  But to over and over struggle, is just not healthy.  

Sometimes you let go.  

Yet, there is a part of me, that is actually very stubborn, where I hold on.  Where I won’t give up hope.  But it is because I am holding onto God.  It is not over, till He says its over.  Then I will totally let go.  But if I see a glimmer of hope, I am holding onto that thought.  I trust God.  But I have to obey. 

I guess, because I am older now, and I have always loved God, but you know sometimes, I have struggled with things.  I have struggled, with people.  I have struggled, with my own self worth.  And I am actually tired of dealing with these things in my mind.

The scripture says, there is no peace to the wicked.  I don’t try to be wicked.  I don’t try to hurt anybody, I don’t try to disobey God. For many years, I have tried to be kind, forgiving, loving.  Yes obedient….

I have tried not to open spiritual doors, that brings curses.  But I suppose that sin nature can creep in, if I don’t totally submit to God.  And resist the devil.  So I try to watch myself in these spiritual matters.  

But I am blunt, and that can hurt.  But I know some truths, about who God is, and I know what His word says, in some ways, and I try to share it.  Some think or feel it’s judging.  I feel like its warning, and thats what I try to do, on occasion.  They cannot handle me.  Well thats o.k.  I don’t need to be handled.  But it would have been nice, if I had been accepted.  With love, and friendship.  In Christ.  

Anyway, I am facing something right now, where I am weary.  I don’t have the bounce I used to.  And it seems to be a distraction, where I have not been able to give full attention to this, and I keep thinking about the past, and the friends, I love.  It does seem like the enemy has been trying to attack me.  In matters of friendship. But I do rebuke that, and plead the blood of Jesus in that.  

And I just have come to a place where, I am saying Lord, I trust you.  

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART: AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING.  PROVERBS 3:5  KJV.  

I cannot try to second guess, or trouble shoot something, or analyze it so much.  That would be inclining to my own understanding, and here in this scripture God is saying don’t do that.  Just trust me.  He says….

Now when push comes to shove.  I just have to trust God.  I have to coast.  Go with the flow.  Float, hang on. Ride it out.  

I realize, though, and I always have realized that I have my part in this.  On how it goes.  In the spiritual realm of things.  God is a spirit, and so I worship Him, in spirit and in truth.  Whether people agree.  Whether people want to have anything to do with me, is really not my concern.  In the sense, that people, cannot dictate to me, by their actions, by their love, or hate, whether or not I care.  

Because I care what God thinks.  I care, if I please God.  

I have had relationship problems with people for most of my life, where they just seem to go.  Even family.  And yes friends.  

The family that left, did not mean to leave me.  But some did.  They wanted nothing to do with me.  

Friends is where I had hope in.  I adopted people, as family.  Because I did not have a strong family foundation.  Growing up.  But I do now.  God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and son.  

But, Friends in Christ.  Well, those did not last.  And that has grieved me, greatly, I did not want to accept it.  But I do now, because I thought the foundation was in love, and God is love, and He never fails.  But people do.  

Its not all lost, don’t get me wrong. I think I have a couple of friends left, and I just need to say that.  But I don’t want to intrude on those frienships.  I want to cherish them, but I am a little afraid, that they will go too….  So I think I am keeping my distance.  I don’t want to, but I am afraid to get close to friends any more.  

I think I have a bit of PTS.  (Post Traumatic Syndrome)  You know like a warrior has, a soldier, who has been in the war zone.  

Where I have had a bit of stress, from this, and it is just making me very cautious, and not paranoid, I hate to use that word, because God has not given me a spirit of fear.  But where I am just not able to trust.  To be honest.  I am afraid to trust friends again.  And that is sad.  

But let me add because I never know who my audience is, is that I know, and believe God can heal anything.  Anything!  Nothing is impossible with God, as the scriptures state. Spiritually, physically, emotionally, whatever.  He can heal it.  And that’s always my hope.  But right now, this is where I am.  

Where I guess, I kind of expect some folks to leave, if they are friends.  Because most of them have left.  And when I think about it, it bothers me.  Like its a bad track record.  And I guess, I have blamed myself.  But I am tired.  And I say I forgive, but maybe I have not.  Maybe I resented.  And maybe, it has hurt me, spiritually.  Because it may be sin.  I don’t know.

But because I am in the position I am in now, and I am tired.  I am actually telling God, to bless those who have hurt me.  To comfort them.  To give them wisdom, love and understanding.  I am saying this, even though, I have felt abandoned by some folks.  I did not understand it.  

But I cannot hold onto it any more.  I release it.  Like a balloon, and if it pops somewhere oh well.  Or like a gift, that just brings joy.  But I am not holding onto it.  I am trusting God, and just letting go, and letting God. Walking in love, forgiving.  

Trying to change my heart, because my mind is changing.  I change it willingly to remind myself to seek Gods heart.  So I can have Gods mind.  The mind of His son, our Lord, Christ. 

Hoping that the release, will release me, in the spirit.  So I can go on….To whatever the will of God is.  

Its the holy week.  A few days before Resurrection Sunday.  And I am just trying to reconnect more with my Lord.  I am trying to be strong, in love, and forgiveness, as Christ was, and is.  I am reminded of His sacrifice, and that there was no greater sacrifice.  Then what He did.  I am being quiet.  Avoiding social media.  The toxicity of that, politics. etc.  

There is a part of me, where I don’t understand, those who do not take His word, and love to heart.  But maybe thats not my place.  

Maybe I am just called to walk alone, without these people, but love them in my heart anyway.  Isn’t that what Christ did, in the sense, that He takes all these sins, thoughts, and just covers them with love?  

And I feel like emphasizing that thought in love.  Just love them.  Be grateful, they touched your life.  Even though they are not near me.  For whatever reasons.  Just remember the good times, just hold them close, in hope and thought, because God loves them too.  Pray for them, because you know their weak points.  Pray, God helps them.  Remember the laughs, remember the joy.  The times, we prayed, or had fellowship, and it was all so very good.  It really was…..But I cannot miss it, any longer, or long for it, because then it holds me back.  

And I think if I can do that, I can let go, I can release them all in sweet feelings.  I can have peace about it.  I am going to call that obeying God, and trusting God in the matter.  Because thats where I am at this point.  

But in there is a place of reconciling with Him, to love Him, and to just come to that point, where you totally release everything to Him, because He is God.  Because you see, you cannot control it, or take care of it always. But He can….

A BLESSING, IF YE OBEY THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY:  DEUTERONOMY 11:27  KJV.  

Hope that makes sense, but that’s “Just My Thoughts” today….I love the Lord.  

AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.  ROMANS 8:28  KJV.

THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2942.jpegFOR THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS, AND HIS EARS ARE OPEN UNTO THEIR PRAYERS:  BUT THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THEM THAT DO EVIL.  I PETER 3:12 KING JAMES.

Yesterday, I told a famous young actress, (name withheld) to fear God.  I told her that was the best advice I could give her, because there is a hell, and if she did not get right, that could be her eternal future.  

Because she did something, and I won’t mention it here, but she did something that was very offensive, and very obscene with the Holy word of God.  I told her to repent.  I told her, to get a King James bible.  I also told her to be quiet, because she has been getting advice from the devil, and it showed.  

I hope she heeded my advice.  Because God is not mocked.  Where do people, get off, thinking they can say foul things about God, and they won’t reap what they sow?

It can leave a bad taste in your mouth.  I don’t know.  I just know, I want to please God.  

I just know, that I can trust Him.  But we always have our part.  

In that same day, I had a discussion, with a brother in Christ.  A man of God.  But we seemed to have a difference of opinion about grace, and repentance.  

I come from a place, where I am grateful for grace.  But I never want to abuse it.  And I see some folks, and I am not judging this brother, but I see, that many times, people rely on grace.  Or they think grace is a license to sin.  And that’s so wrong.  But they are not accountable for their own actions.  Which can turn into offenses, or sin.  

So because of that, I believe in daily repentance.  I know, I have my part, and I always want to be on the same page.  With God.

I believe in asking God to forgive me, daily.  Because I do fall short.  And I never want to get to that place though, where I think I am there, or I have made it.  Because then I would have no place to grow, or to learn, or to expect to see Gods hand.  See, I think there is a danger, of taking things for granted.  Taking God for granted.  Even taking people for granted.  He lifts the humble, but turns from the proud. 

We talked about fearing God.  And you know, I do fear God greatly.  I know some day I will leave this earth.  But when I do, I want to hear well done, good and faithful servant.  I don’t want to hear.  I never knew you. 

It just made me realize even more, how much I love the Lord.  It made me realize, every day I have to prove to Him, that I love Him.  Thats the least, I can do.  He did His part on that cross for me.  He gave His life, sacrificed for me, His life, to take my sins away.  He suffered, greatly.  For my sins. Which were many.  

And I still fall short.  I see it.  I am not trying to discount, anything He did for me, but I am human.  I have had poor judgement.  And I just want to be in His good “graces”  but I want to have that discernment, to do whats right.  His eyes are over us.  And I want Him to hear my prayers.  But I know, God is not mocked.  I know, He is against them, that do evil.  

I try to tell people, boldly, this.  But many times, it just falls on deaf ears, and it is not received.  I hope, I plant a seed at least.  But only God can make that grow.  

I don’t ever want to come from a legal place.  And hit his people with the bible, or be legalistic.  But, you know, God is a legal God, and His law, His commandments do need to be acknowledged, known, and honored.  And I see so many Christians, who do not even think they have to honor the law, because they think they are free from that.  The only law friends we are free from is the law of sin, and death.  Look it up.  It is in Romans 8:2 King James…. 

I am aware of my words.  I am aware of Gods laws.  Things, He has implemented as principles.  Like what goes up comes down.  Like, we reap what we sow.  And nobody wants to reap curses.  But there are consequences to things we say and do.

I try to speak life, and I do try and walk in love.  I don’t want to be a flaky Christian.  I am a different kind of Christian, it seems.  I do seek truth.  I do seek to know His King James word, and I do seek to see love, from other brothers and sisters in Christ.

When I see the pharisee spirit, or a wolf in sheep clothing, I walk away.  I pass.

And when I don’t see it, and I see God does not get the glory, or honor or praise, I wonder….

Have you ever read a story, and it was a miracle.  Of some sort, yet the person, does not give God the glory, honor praise, or even the thanks?  But they talk about it like it was just a coincidence, etc.  And that bugs me, for God.  See, people do not see who He is, in matters like this, and if it was me, I would be giving God the glory, honor and praise.  Yesterday, I saw a brother in Christ, just ignore my thought on that, and it bothered me for God.  But, oh well….

These are things, I do not accept as right…. 

I am so grateful for the times, He has been near, helped me, saved me.  I will never forget that I was at the bottom of the barrel.  So desperate, so lost, so polluted, by my sins.  That yes, I did seek Him, and continually will, until I leave this earth.  No one can never tell me there is not a God.  I know different.  

It does get me righteously indignant when they say that.  But I will try, and give God all the glory and praise, because I am grateful.  Thats the least I can do.  But I don’t want to come from a place of being in the least.  Because everything He has done for me, has been in abundance.  

This morning, this scripture really is taking root in my spirit.  And God’s word will do that.  Thats why I recommend, always use holy King James word.  It’s anointed.  It is not corrupted, or changed, if you read my writing, you know, I hammer this.  You will hear His voice, and to another, you will not follow. 

Let Gods Holy King James word, take root in your spirit.  You would be surprised, you can grow.  You can change.  You can grow fruit, even in the harshest of winters.  

Be blessed, in Christ,

Just sharing, Just My Thoughts…
