Black Friday

There was a lot of hustle and buzz

The news spread far, the lines were long

People from all over came, that’s just what everyone does

But they all had an opinion, some right, most wrong

This was a once in a while event

But today it drew more attention

Everyone who could go, went

The place was packed with people, gossip and tension

Black was the Friday when our Savior hung

From a cross where He drew His last breaths

Seven last words He withdrew from tired lungs

Before His collapse and ultimate death

But Sunday was coming with more than expected

Despite what the cross displayed

The plan of salvation remained unaffected

By the events of that Black Friday

Oración de Lágrimas

Aveces nuestras oraciones no son formadas por nuestras palabras sino lagrimas. Pero puedes confiar que Dios las entiende todas.

Mi Refugio: Tu Presencia

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Cuando sienta que ya no puedo dar un paso más
Ni para adelante, ni para atrás.

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Cuando mis problemas se conviertan en tormentas
Y me ahogue en sus aguas turbulentas.

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Cuando los lagos de mis ojos estén llenos de lágrimas amargas
Y me derrumbe bajo el peso de mi ansiedad y mi carga

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Cuando el hombre pinte un cuadro de desamparo y depresión
Porque Tu pincel pinta con los colores de esperanza, amor y salvación

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Cuando no encaje con el mundo y se burlen de mi personalidad
Porque no importa lo que digan, en Ti está mi identidad

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Cuando mi única compañía sea la soledad
Porque Tu amor es todo lo que necesito como amistad

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Porque en Tu abrazo encuentro libertad
Porque Tu mirada me guía a hacer Tu voluntad

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Cuando llueva y también cuando salga el sol a brillar
Porque nada se compara con Tu presencia, no hay mejor lugar

Me refugiaré en Tu presencia

Mi Refugio: Tus Palabras

Me refugiaré en Tus palabras
Porque ellas no pasarán
Abren caminos, y mis pasos iluminarán

Me refugiaré en Tu cobertura
Porque en Ti mi vida está segura
Contigo veré la mañana de la noche oscura

Me refugiaré en Tu gracia
Porque es más que suficiente para mí
Pongo mi fe completamente en Ti

Me refugiaré en Tu protección
Porque ningún arma forjada contra mí podrá vencer
Contigo tengo la victoria, no hay nada que no puedas hacer

Me refugiaré en Tu voluntad para mí
Porque eres autor de la vida y confío en lo que harás
Tus pensamientos para mi futuro son de paz

Me refugiaré en Tus promesas
Porque tu especialidad es en lo imposible
Lo increíble para Ti, oh Dios, es factible
Me refugiaré en Ti

The Journey

I’ve been re-reading the story of Joseph recently in an effort to look at it from a different perspective because I believe that Hebrews 4:12 is true in saying that the word of God is living and active.

We usually read the story of Joseph with the outcome in mind, but what if just maybe, the real story is in the journey? The Joseph that had the dreams in Genesis 37 was not the same Joseph who was put in charge at the end of chapter 41. There was a process that he had to go through, not because the blessing was in the making, not because it needed to be tweaked a little, or because it needed to bake a little longer in heaven’s oven of miracles and wonders, NO. The process was to prepare Joseph for the coming chapters that God had already written.

It is my belief that his time in Potiphar’s house introduced him to Egyptian culture as well as gave him some insight on stewardship and leadership. Later, in jail, he continued practicing his much-needed leadership skills. Of course, we know that years later, he was made second in command, but I’m not just telling you a nice story. I want to point out that the journey which led to Joseph being a leader was just as important as the outcome. It was not a pleasant path. He was sold into slavery, harassed, wrongfully accused and imprisoned. However, note that despite the many attempts to knock him off course, he was pushed in the right direction. Again with Potiphar, it seemed Joseph was knocked off track when he was accused and jailed but that only got him closer to where he would eventually end up. In each step, there was a lesson or a skill to be learned. Each event was a piece to the puzzle of an outcome that God had previously designed.

Joseph’s story reminds me of one of my favorite songs to listen to during my quiet time with God: Waymaker. The words to the song speak of how God wipes tears, mends hearts, lights the way and works miracles, all in an effort to clear the path toward the blessing that He has already prepared for us when our story was written. There are 2 important facts to take note of here:

  1. If He’s mending hearts, it’s because they may break along the way. If He’s wiping tears it’s because they will be shed. If He’s lighting the way, it’s because dark times will come.
  2. If He’s paved to the way to the blessing, then He’s already been there, which confirms that it is ready and waiting and that, like the Bible says, He is THE way.

Dear friends, I don’t know what dreams God may have placed in your hearts and what struggles you may have found along the way, but what I do know is this: our stories have been written and the road to our blessings have been paved. Let us take a page from Paul’s book and rejoice in our struggles because they are mere stepping stones which will help prepare us for what’s to come. Keep the words of Deuteronomy 31:8 near your heart and be encouraged because our Heavenly Father is with us. He goes before us leading the way.

Let these words inspire you to also help others along the way with the gift of salvation. Wield words of hope into your daily conversations and let these be woven into the eternities of all who hear them. Let them be floating lanterns which pierce the darkness as they drift away, and let them always shine a light on the true protagonist of each and every one of our stories, Jesus.

I’m Expecting!

Unknown

I’m Expecting!!!

Recently, I was listening to a song that spoke on 1 Corinthians 2:9 and I felt the Lord tug at the strings of my heart. We often wait for God to surprise us and go on about our lives not expecting anything because, after all, it’s a surprise, but I’m sure this isn’t how it works. We should have an expecting attitude; knowing that God will answer, knowing that He has a plan for us, knowing that He will work things out and the surprise will be in how He does it!

Celebrate with me. Watch this!:

A Ray of Light

This morning as I walked outside, I caught a glimpse of the sunrise which squeezed its rays through, what I consider to be, very tall bushes. It was a majestic display, and simultaneously intriguing how the sun, as big as it is, managed to slip through a crack in the wall and the shrubs that covered it. The Son is capable of doing the same, if we allow it. He is The Creator of everything, He holds the world in His hands, however, if we let Him past our walls, He would gladly come in to shine His light and fill us with His love.


The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:9-12 NLT)
