Undeserved love


“I’m forgiven because you were forsaken; I’m accepted you were condemned. I’m alive and well your Spirit is within me because you died and rose again.  Amazing love, how can it be that you my king have died for me?” “You are my King” by Newsboys 

Have you ever stopped to think about the depth of Jesus’ love for you and me?  Undeserved love, undeserved…

A green dot.

I wear a pin that is a green dot everyday at work, the green dot is Deloitte's logo. I wear it to show people how thankful I am for my job. Please let me be as clear as possible, this blog is in no way a plug for the accounting firm I work for. A couple of days ago I lost my green dot pin and did a thorough search of absolutely everywhere it could have/should have been. I actually found the pin just a few hours ago by stepping on it when I was seated on my bed in my room which is carpeted. So… Continue

A Great Idea!!

I have a sister in the faith who does this Pinterest thing. I'm not into it, but she posted a photo of a book entiled "365 Things for Which I am Grateful". So we got to chatting back and forth on Facebook, and came up with this idea.

On Thanksgiving day (which means we have a month to prepare), we both will start a Gratitude Journal, and every day write in it things for which we are thankful...and to whom.

It can be like scrapbooking, and include mementos from the people, times…

What does it mean that God is holy?

I was sitting in church last Sunday, and before the service started, I think God wanted to throw me a bone. All of a sudden, the Holy Spirit revealed some truths about the character of God, to me, and while I cannot put them into words, nor adequately explain, I think I can explain this the best out of all of the illuminations:

What does it mean that God is holy?  In Revelation 4:

In the center, around the throne, were…

I failed, nevertheless I learn.

I'm writing as part of the healing God is doing in me. There was a guy in our men's ministry who was attempting to start a men's small group Bible study. There was 3 of us that initially wanted to participate in the group, we gave the guy our email addresses and phone numbers. The 4 of us met as a group one time. And then the guy sent us all an email in preparation for our next meeting. But none of us, including myself, never showed up at the next meeting time. Of course the guy felt terribly… Continue

Out of our comfort zone


When I go to the gym, I usually warm up in the treadmill but only in the manual workout, the other day I finally figured out why I do this. I realized that in manual I am in control of the difficulty level, I know what to expect and I like that.  The truth is I don’t make it too hard, just enough to feel I am working.  I think in life we also like the manual…

Some Folks Say...a song

Some folks say You've gone away, forever

Although I know it really isn't true

But the world I live in tries to tell me You're a fable

And tries to make me live the way they do

They try to compensate for You with stories

of jolly men and magical cartoons

They even make You up and say that You're so very special,

but they just want to profit from Your name

But Jesus, You're the dawn of my morning

breaking forth like sunlight upon a cloudy…

I'm so done with you God

        Were done here God. It's been nice knowing you. If you are not going to step in and do something about this then I am finished. Do you know of someone (or perhaps yourself) that has said this ? Maybe not in those exact words or perhaps they haven't said a word at all, but they haven't been to church for months. "They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been…

Daddy God (ABBA) is so very good.

I'm going to "Brag on Jesus" as our senior pastor would say. The most recent way God has blessed me is giving me full-time hours at the accounting firm I work for. I'm new to working in an office environment so it was upper-management's decision to start me with part-time hours then gradually move me to full-time hours. Getting my job in the first place was a miracle in itself. My brother has been working for the same accounting firm for over 5 yrs. They love him so much there that he is now… Continue

A Servant?

God's gifts


The other day I got a package in the mail. I don’t know about you, but I love getting packages so I was very happy and put it in the kitchen counter to open it later with more time.  From the counter I moved it to the table and then to the…

Open our eyes.

So today I realized something its sad its taken me this long to realize this but happy I did. So no car I have no choice but to walk to work everyday in the rain, cold, or hot and in Texas when it gets hot it gets hot. But today though when I was walking I notice how amazing it is. What I mean is that I get to see Gods blessings everyday, the birds chirping, butterflies, and notice the leaves blowing in the wind. And it hit me how amazing it is most of the.times we take for granted what is… Continue

Sinless Perfection

You will never attain sinless perfection this side of Heaven no matter what anybody tells you. Any questions? OK we are done here. Unfortunately, it isn't that easy. 

There are those who say you can... based on this verse alone: "Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection"....Hebrews… Continue

Mrs. Goodhope

At seven years old I had began my second grade year in a small elementary school in Southern California.   It had been about seven months since my life had changed forever and I had become a foster child.

In so many ways I had become aquainted with a life of stability, comfort and acceptance..... but there was still a cord of insecurity, lack of confidence and unworthiness that ran deep within me.

The Lord knew his child's need and placed Mrs. Goodhope my…

Wanting to learn to be a better blogger

I would love to start blogging on a regular basis so I can learn the "in's and out's" of blogging.  I have interests in business, the outdoors, gardening, writing, sharing my faith and How God walks with me, missions and travel.  So, if anyone is wanting to join in these topics....LETS GO! 

I'm creating a business that is allowing me more time to do what I want to do.  I'm always looking for business partners too.  I love it; the people I'm meeting are awesome and can't believe…

A new focus


Have you noticed how at an especial sports event or a performance everyone is focused only on the main court, the field or the stage, no one pays attention to what is going on around them.  Many times we do the same thing in our life, we concentrate on the big things, the main events and somehow we disregard the daily “little” things in life. The same way we…

I was allowed by Sharon Martinez to publish this for the glory and honor of Jesus Christ. Amen! Having spoke to her for only a short time on the phone, I know she does not want any praise or glory. I felt led of the Lord to ask her permission to publish this...she didn't ask me , I asked her.

Have You Asked Him?

Do you believe God died for your sins and have you admitted to God that you believe in him and asked him to forgive you of your sins and to be your Lord and Savior? I have. If you have, do me a favor and hit like at the bottom or say Amen so I will know. Thanks.

The Bible says we are all sinners.  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 says: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

God heals


In the world we often see awful things happening sometimes in faraway places to people we don’t know and other times to friends and family close by.  It is difficult to understand why bad things happen and we may feel helpless as we witness things that we wish we could ignore and pretend they are not real.  

When we feel crushed with the pain around us…
