Plans (part 2)

Have you ever made plans that you really wanted but for some reason, they just didn’t. No matter how much you planned everything out. They just didn’t work out. You are left wondering what the heck happen?! Why didn’t I see this coming?

This. Was. Me. Three months ago my world turn a little bit. The place where I called work wasn’t what I wanted anymore. Wasn’t where I even wanted to be anymore. I know I still needed a job. I still have bills to pay, responsibilities, but all I wanted was to walk out and quit! After 15 years at the same job. I was done. I felt like my time had come. I was scared, nervous, anxious, confused. You name the emotion! I know I had it that one week!! That week felt like the longest week of my life! I prayed, I fasted. I humbled myself to the One that I should have come to first.

Then God stepped in. He constantly was tugging at my heart and telling me He got me this far. He will sustain me. He will get me through this. I just have to trust Him. To let Him do the work He said He was going to do in my life. I had asked God years ago, to use me at this job. To bring others to know Him. To let me see others the way He does. In the 6 years that I was at that store. I shared my Faith with my co workers that I would sometimes see more than my own family. I would try to give each of them Godly wisdom. But most important, the way I lived my life had to reflect the God I was talking about. I tried my best to plant those seeds in each of their hearts. I pray that someone else comes to water them now. That season has passed now.

God open doors and this new season He has me in a totally different store, with a different atmosphere. It’s still the same company. But with new co workers. A new mission field. This was never my dream job, but it’s a job. The bible says everything you do, do it on to the Lord. I pray that God to keep using me. To keep showing me how to share His love to those that don’t know Him. To not only share my Faith with others, but to be that example of that love relationship I have with Jesus. Not some religion! Please pray with me. I know that I’ve been away this summer, but I’m promising that ill be blogging more this season He has me on. So stay tuned!

I sometimes look back at what my life would have been without my Faith. Without my God that has my life already planned out for me. I urge you right now. If you don’t know Jesus. Or are confused and feeling that all your plans in life are not what you wanted. Don’t worry. God loves you. He has your plans all ready. Just trust Him. Any prayer request? Please feel free to email me: crebollo31@gmail.com

Thank you for taking this time to read these simple words. Thank you for praying!
Love and prayers to each one of you. ❤

she will be healed…

Matthew 19:2
Large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. (NIV)

Mark 5:34
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” (NIV)

Luke 8:50
Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” (NIV)

Luke 9:11
… but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. (NIV)

It was cold this early morning. I put on the heater in my car and turn down the radio. All I can hear was the engine and the heater. It was a stillness in “my world” this morning. Not because it was 4:15 in the morning and the world was still sleeping, but I was sad. I didn’t sleep well the night before, I was tossing and turning. I started my night praying when I found out that this beautiful little girl, that I and many have been praying for, had passed away the early morning before. I was upset that God didn’t heal Daisy Love. That God let that cancer take away little Daisy Love’s life. Then of course, I started talking to God and asking Him why? He didn’t answer me. He didn’t even give me some comforting scripture. I even listen to so MUCH worship songs and still NOTHING!!

Back to being sad in my car, as I drove off. I noticed people waiting for the bus in this cold. Then I thought, “does the bus even run on Sundays?” Then, I turned off the heater because I can’t have it to long because I get too hot. Then I started thinking about stopping at Starbucks and wondering what to get that is “healthy”. I also need gas. I finally get to work, seeing the homeless guy sleeping all covered up with trash and all his stuff everywhere. All this time, my normal routine that I have day after day, God has always, always protected me, provided for me, blessed me, and loved me. Just like Daisy Love. She is protected and loved by her Heavenly Father now and for eternity. Daisy will no longer have cancer. She will no longer be in pain. She will no longer cry. God has healed her. Thank You Jesus.

I know I don’t understand why things happen. I know that this life is not guaranteed. We always hear that things happen for a reason. A reason? Or a purpose? We all have a purpose in this life. Little Daisy Love wasn’t even ten years old and she touched so many lives. I never meet Daisy. I did go to her Dad’s church once. Join me in prayer for this family. They know that their Daisy Love is with Jesus now, but it is still very hard. I cannot even imagine how they are handling all of this. Only Jesus can give them His peace.

“He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, For there were many against me.” (Psalms 55:18 NKJV)

my heart. ❤

“Lord search my heart and make me Yours, for I am Yours forever..”

Happy Saturday! I’m so glad this week is almost over. Because, this has been a very challenging week. Wow!

Spring Break is finally here! Thank You sweet Jesus! You know no matter what God’s love will always rule in my heart and in my life. This week alone is proof that He is the only one that can ever love me, unconditional. And will always have a better plan for my life. He amazes me! Thank you Lord for everything. I have this song that I’ve been listening to from The Katinas. They are a group of six brothers (I believe) that sing to our Lord. I have seen them live at my church a couple of times and they are awesome! This is one my favorite songs they sing. It’s called, “Thank You”. Such a beautiful song. Listen to the words. Be blessed and have a great Palm Sunday ❤

Prayer

20120317-004222.jpg

When I go out to lunch or go about my day and actually pay attention to others around me. Many are calling out to someone, or something that will just listen to them. It might be the way this economy is. Or the way this world is becoming. Prayer is powerful. So powerful.

“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (Matthew 6:5-15)

“Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him. (John 9:31)

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (Romans 8:26)

Happy Birthday Mommy :)

“Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life. She finds wool and flax
and busily spins it. She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar. She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
and plan the day’s work for her servant girls. She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
with her earnings she plants a vineyard. She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker. She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
her lamp burns late into the night. Her hands are busy spinning thread,
her fingers twisting fiber. She extends a helping hand to the poor
and opens her arms to the needy. She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm clothes. She makes her own bedspreads.
She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns. Her husband is well known at the city gates,
where he sits with the other civic leaders. She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants. She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise”. (Proverbs 31:10-31 NLT)

Today is my beautiful mommy’s Birthday! I thank Jesus for my mom. She is the best. She is the hardest working lady I know. And has always set an example for being a Godly wife and mommy. I pray that God continues to work in her life and shows her that He has amazing plans for her life. And to keep showing her His love and Grace. I thank you Jesus, for picking my mommy to be my mommy.

sick of being sick! and tired of being tired!

Have you ever been sick of being sick? That was me last week. I have been sick for a couple of weeks now and I am so over it! I am feeling a lot better now though. Thank you Jesus! I still have a cough but it isn’t so bad. You know when I was feeling yucky and not wanting to do much, that’s when God spoke to me. He reminded me that everything that I was feeling and going through, He has also. He never left my side. When I would wake up at 3am coughing up a lung, He was there. I never felt alone, or sorry for myself. Even when I wasn’t feeling my best. Although I was tired, I know He is not tired of loving me. I am weak, but my God is strong. His love for me is unconditional and everlasting. That is ALL I need.

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27 NLT)

“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5 NKJV)

Happy Monday to you all 🙂 I want to encourage each of you today. If you are feeling sad, lonely, tired, depress. Please know that we have an amazing God that loves you. He already conquered death, He won the battle. He saved our souls. All He wants is your love. He will never leave you.
