Waiting in God’s time

Impact Your Life Positively with God’s truths

How difficult it is to wait for God’s time! Especially when we think that already, nothing is going to change. When we start to see things begin to look as impossible. When we are under pressure, when we are in the emergency room, when we are in need. We begin to despair and the whole picture is bleak. Anxiety begins to devour us. If we do not achieve our goal in time the enemy takes his chance and works on our discouragement until we reach the depression. 

Dear friend, remember that God is our Creator and has unlimited power. And God knows better than we do what is good for us. God asks us to have faith in Him and to rest in Him. We must take time to pray and to study the Word of God. We must congregate in a church that is guided by the Bible. As we devote time to God, He works with our situations. I invite you to try it.

There is hope after death

Positively Impacting Your Life with God’s Truths-October 2016

Greetings and blessings. In these times we see too many tragedies in the news around the world. These tragedies cause pain to loved ones, especially when someone dies. God loves us and He understands our pain. We are on earth temporarily. God tells us in the Bible that we must not lose hope for the death of a loved one because if we have surrendered our lives to Him, we will have eternal life after death.

Watch the story of Lazarus. Marta recognizes that her brother would rise again but not at that time. She had the blessing that Jesus raised him at that time. But she knew that at some point her brother would rise again. Then read part of the story so you can understand.

John 11: 23-26 Jesus said, “Your brother will rise again”. Martha said, “I know he will rise in the resurrection on the last day”. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He that believeth in me, though he die, will live, and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?

Jesus told Martha that He is the resurrection and the life. That same hope is for us too. For everyone who has given his heart and life to God. That is a shocking news.

God knows we miss our loved ones when they die, but while we are on this earth He has promised us to strengthen and heal our hearts… Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. If you have not accepted Jesus into your heart, I invite you to do and you should start to visit a church that is guided by the Bible. From that moment you will starting to know many promises God has for His children. Until next time and the peace of God be with you and your family.

Forgiveness!

Greetings and blessings appreciated reader. The truth of forgiveness will impact your life positively.

God forgive our sins through Jesus, we also must forgive. When we hurt, our self-esteem may be in tatters, but God wants to heal us. Psalm 147: 33 says; “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

Forgiving is the path of spiritual, mental and emotional release. The person who truly is released is one that forgives, casting out of his soul the past, the guilt, the resentment and the revenge, which creates bitterness in his heart, consumed inside and keeps it tied to past hurts and pains. Forgiving is difficult, especially when we believe to be right and a thousand reasons for not doing so. We will have to overcome many inner voices, the pain and the emotions that prevent us pronounce inside our hearts, one of the most difficult phrases: Forgiveness!

Positively Impacting Your Life with God’s Truths- June 2016

Gripped by self-compassion 

Greetings and blessings for you and your family. There are feelings that can affect us negatively. Self-compassion is one of them. Self-compassion is extending compassion to one’s self in instances of perceived inadequacy, failure, or general  suffering. Kristin Neff has defined self-compassion as being composed of three main components – self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness. Self-compassion keeps us stuck, without us being aware of it and prevents us to move through life and enjoy.

Self-compassion makes us focus on us in our sadness and the cause of sadness, in a way we started to see everything negative and suffer without reason. But, if you have Jesus in your heart you know that everything has a solution in His hands. What is impossible for us it is possible to God is God. God tells us that if we ask Him for wisdom He will give it to us. James 1:5 says; “If any of you lacks wisdom, ask God, and it will be given, because God gives generously to all without underestimating anyone, God gives us patience also through His Holy Spirit as we await the answer to our problem or situation”. Another promise of God is that if we trust in Him, we will feel His peace. Philippians 4:6-7 says; “No worry about anything; rather, in everything, by prayer and petition, present your requests to God and thank. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”.

Remain steadfast in our faith and our culture

Letters from a Lesbian…

Dear World,

Amongst political debates, bathroom debates, and everything else you can imagine, I find myself facing another medical issue. Nothing too serious. Just something that requires a lot of time, and attention. A condition that I have had my entire life that is now beginning to cause some bigger issues.

As I get older and tackle these problems, I find that I must rely on some kind of faith to get me through – that I can’t do this without divine intervention. Ours is a culture where religion and culture are one in the same. Our faith is so deeply in-bedded in our culture, you cannot separate the two. I’ve addressed topics of Catholicism and the LGBT community in the past.

What about our spiritual nature? What about our faith on a daily basis? What about our beliefs aside from the Pope and the church?

Faith and religion can be difficult topics for Hispanic LGBTs. So many of us were raised in religious families. Yet, for many of us, when we came out, our families and our faith turned their backs on us. That makes it incredibly difficult for us to try to maintain a relationship with God, to continue to follow our faith.

Jesus’ Humility

Greetings. I hope you can receive hope after you read how humility can give you peace and blessings. The first thing to know is that our first example of humility was Jesus. When we are not proud we allow God to work in our situations and our lives begin to be blessed. God expects us to depend on Him for everything in our life.

Biblical humility has degrees: first is the modesty that opposes vanity. At a deeper level that opposes humility to pride it is. Humble, then, which acknowledges that it has received from God all he has: “what do you have that you have not received from God? And if you received it why do you boast as if you had not received it? (1 Cor 4,7). The humble recognizes that it is nothing without God: “I can do nothing without Him.” But incomparably more profound is still the humility of Christ, who emptied himself to death on the cross for our redemption.

Pope Pious XII

In March 1939 Pope Pious XII began his rule as chief executive officer (CEO) of the Roman Catholic Church, pontificate that lasted until October 1958. He had the responsibility to head the Church through World War II, which pitted the Axis powers (Germany, Italy, Japan, etc.) against the Allies (United States, United Kingdom, France, etc.), with both camps fighting to expand their respective spheres of influence in order to achieve global hegemony. Pious XII’s precise role during the conflict is still the subject of scholarly debate.

Evidentiary documentation from a British spy agency emerged as a matter of study in 2012 in the article titled “New Perspectives on Pious XII and Vatican Financial Transactions during the Second World War,” authored by Patricia McGoldrick and published in a Cambridge University history journal. It indicated that the Holy See contributed to the Allies’ victory by moving its investments to the American military-industrial complex, as General Dwight Eisenhower called it. These transactions were under the direct supervision of Bernardino Nogara, chief financial officer (CFO) of the Catholic Church, who is alleged to have also been involved in shady deals on behalf of the Roman Curia, claims that are discussed in Gerald Posner’s book “God’s Bankers: A History of Money and Power at the Vatican,” among others. It’s not immediately clear whether or not the city-state under Pope Francis still holds this profit-seeking stake in the U.S. war machinery.
