Under Construction!!!

I know, my blog looks undone right now. It reminds me of how I am as I walk with Jesus! I am undone! I will not be done until that day that He welcomes me into Heaven!! Thank you Jesus for that. Today was a very eventful for day. Math/division seemed like an eternity, then as I was cleaning upstairs I found my little one with paint all over her body. I wanted to scream, but all I could do was laugh. She was riding on her little horsey and she reminded me Pochahontas (spelled her name wrong I'm sure), but you get the picture. I'll have to post it later, because I took many. After I was done cleaning the bathrooms I immediately gave her a shower. Boy that was the longest shower ever!! The water was very colorful.

There was a moment when I did see her for the first time, rainbow colors in all that I wanted to get so angry. But I got a tug from the Lord, laugh.....laugh is all I heard. And so I did just that. I also was remembering our Mom's fellowship we had last night and one of the chapters was about letting things go sometimes, and so I did. It was awesome to let it go and just laught it off. I had a frustrating morning, and at that point I said I'm not going to let Satan steal my joy. Thank you Jesus that I can do all things through You!!! Thank you for all the frustrations, sweeties that paint their whole bodies, disobeying children and trials. With out them, I wouldn't be as close to you as I want to be. I'm at a point in my life that I welcome trials, it only brings me closer to the Lord and that is where I want to be. As close to Him as possible.


  1. Just stopped by to say hello.....Boy, did I need this today! So often I get caught up in "I need to do this, I need to do that" and anything that gets in my way frustrates me.....even my children! Thanks for the reminder to hang on to the joy in all things - especially since this stage of life that we are in will be gone before we know it! And God has something to teach us in everything...even paint covered babies! Have a blessed Wednesday! Kristin

  2. Awwwww I know how those moments can be yet praise God you were able to take it all in and find joy even in a paint covered child that is so uplifting and the word does call us to "COUNT IT ALL AS JOY" so my hat's go off to you sis may you continue to embrace that and take each trial as it comes your way "Counting it All as Joy"
    God Bless you sis,

  3. This was a beautiful testament to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. How beautiful that you rested in the arms of your Savior and allowed your child to be innocently unaware and carefree. These moments will be few and far between. What a wonderful memory to look back on for all of you. God is so good isn't He???

  4. Reina-Your blog is beautiful! I love the pink and I have always loved Victorian Country. Your blogs are so inspiring to me.

    About two weeks ago, I found SOS radio and haven't listened to anything else since! I used to be a Country music girl, but since I have found the Lord, it doesn't sound pleasing to my ears anymore. :)


Thank you soo much for leaving an encouraging comment, I look forward to reading them and thank you for stopping by.

God Bless you!
By His Grace,

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to http://www.calvarychapel.com/?show=Churches and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
