Pensando…

Hazme fuerte en medio de mi debilidad

Sostenme cuando ya no pueda mas

Que tu Espiritu fluya

Dentro de todo mi ser

Saturando cada espacio

De Tu uncion y Tu poder…

Liar In Me

There’s a liar in me

In deep fantasies it sinks

My most desires

As if I don’t know

What better to choose from

From what the world gives

And what I receive from God

But he does know

Yet he keeps me in the shadow

Of what really has value

In my life

To serve God with all my heart

It takes the truth

And changes all

Creating false pretensions 

Of what is pleasing to God

When revealing truth

Shows that God’s way, not mine

Is the truth

But I let him stay

The liar inside of me 

Robbing my true joy everyday

The joy that comes from Him

I fight, but seems I can’t 

Win over a battle to live in truth

And not in lies

I sink deeply in sorrow of all that I wish

The liberty I no longer have

Since this liar in me came to abide

The precious presence of my Lord and king

I long for to find

Oh how I wish 

The liar would depart

To cast him out 

To live in light

Of the One who says always to me

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life

You can only come to the Father by me.

Es Momento

Nunca el pecado traerá bendición

Sino una aparente satisfacción en obtener lo deseado

Pero llegara el momento 

En el que los ojos serán abiertos 

Lo verdadero será expuesto

Para todos ver

Que en la aparente bendición

Hay una triste condenación

Porque Dios es Dios de Santidad

Su Palabra la guía eternal

Prueba directa que el pecado no aceptara

No importa con cuanta piedad

Quieran enmascararlo

Para Dios pecado es pecado

Es momento de arrepentimiento

De tener los ojos bien abiertos 

A lo que Dios desea en nuestras vidas

No una vida de hipocresía

Sino de Santidad, verdad y sometimiento

Que aun cuando arrecien los vientos

Firmes en Cristo podamos estar

Es esa Su prioridad

No la de nuestros carnales deseos

No nos apoyemos en nuestra propia prudencia

No vivamos a ciegas

Pensando todo en pecado va a marchar bien

Por que bien dice la Palabra,

“Alejados de Mi NADA podéis hacer”

En Este Dia: Se Instrumento

Hay que ser agradecido de ser INSTRUMENTO. 
Instrumento es un termino no muy escuchado ya. Este denota generalización y falta de distinción. Muchos cristianos de hoy se enfocan mas en ser llamados por un titulo que ser llamado instrumento. Si no hay reconocimiento y distinción de el tipo o calidad de instrumento que son vienen las caras largas y sentimientos falsos de derrota pensando que no hicieron nada o que nadie se dio cuenta del que hicieron. La verdad es que no se ven como lo que realmente somos…simples instrumentos en las manos de un Dios Omnipotente e Incomparable el cual nos utiliza para llevar a cabo su obra en este mundo. Cuando nadie los ve asumen que todo fue en vano. Contrario a la verdad que todo cuanto hacemos para Dios tiene su justo pago. El nos ve y eso es lo que debe importar. Cuando los títulos se caen de nuestras frentes al postrarnos ante el trono del Dios vivo vemos la realidad que se nos presenta…Somos polvo y NADA podemos hacer sin El! 
Hay tantos instrumentos para cada labor y tenemos que agradecer al Dios poderoso cada día por Su gran misericordia y amor permitiendonos ser ese instrumento usado por El para emprender lo que nos ha encomendado.

En Este Dia

Aunque la higuera no florezca, Ni en las vides haya frutos, Aunque falte el producto del olivo, Y los labrados no den mantenimiento, Y las ovejas sean quitadas de la majada, Y no haya vacas en los corrales; Con todo, yo me alegraré en Jehová, Y me gozaré en el Dios de mi salvación. Jehová el Señor es mi fortaleza, El cual hace mis pies como de ciervas, Y en mis alturas me hace andar. Al jefe de los cantores, sobre mis instrumentos de cuerdas. (‭Habacuc‬ ‭3‬:‭17-19‬ RVR1960)

Aunque nada estés viendo y todo se vea perdido ten plena confianza que Tu Dios que te AMA no te dejara jamas!!!!
El esta contigo! Y aunque te falte todo lo material Su presencia sustentara tu alma y será llena tu vida de plenitud espiritual!!!
Dice con TODO Yo me alegrare en Jehova!!! Alégrate de lo que tienes y aun mas alégrate de lo que aun te falta!!! Por que en todo Dios esta pendiente y NO te dejara sino que proveerá hasta que sobre abunde tanto lo espiritual como material! CREELE!!!! Dios esta trabajando!!!

On This Day: Hide In His Presence

But He Himself withdrew [in retirement] to the wilderness (desert) and prayed. (‭Luke‬ ‭5‬:‭16‬ AMP)

God brought this passage to my heart for the Sunday service this past week. When I came across it the revelation within confronted me in a deep way.  It brought me to question my walk with God and my position in my intimacy with Him. 
Was I taking the time as Jesus did to withdraw myself from everyday things to be with Him? Or have I let distractions and people take my focus from seeking what is unperishable and eternal? It didn’t take me long to find the answer. I just had to examine my attitudes, decisions and behaviors. They said alot.
I don’t know about you, but doesn’t it feel our lives are so overwhelmed by things, events and others that our intimacy with God gets hindered? 
Jesus faced this challenge too! He was well known and followed by so many. Even in the midst of this He realized He needed time to be alone with God. It says that He himself – that shows a decision that Jesus made. It was not something based on feelings, but on the understanding of the need of replenishment of the presence of God in his life. Jesus, being the Son of God in flesh understood that for him to continue clinging to God He needed to be in His presence.  Without spiritual replenishment in intimacy with God we can not survive the fight against the snares of the enemy. It is the time we take to be alone to fast and pray to God where our flesh is submitted to the spirit. We get prepared and stregthened spiritually. 
Do you ever think about the last time you took aside to be ALONE with God? 
When was the last time you seperated yourself from all the wordly situations to go boldly to the Throne of Grace and ask God to fill you?
We are living in times where the enemy brings to our lives more and more ways to distract us from seperating ourselves to be with God. 
On this day make the decision to take time to be alone with God. I can assure you will not be the same.
God bless you! Y.R.

A Heart

   

I have asked for a new heart
One more grounded
Less apart
From Your Word
From Your presence and grace
One that will be keen
To the direction You bring
To everything in my life
A healed and healthy heart
Not one in pieces
With broken pieces bonded tight
I want a new one
No residual of scars 
Of what I’ve gone through life
A heart that separates what is real from false
A heart that trusts only in You, oh Lord
A heart that will not open
To no random person in wind
But open to the one You have separated for me
A new heart I plea!
Change mine is not in one piece
For You are the healer
The Divine doctor that gives me the heart
That at Your rhythm will beat…

Abide

  

Sometimes the best and only thing we can do is abide in the presence of the Lord. 

On this day abide in Him who is your refuge and shield.

Abide in His everlasting love that fills you. 

Abide in His peace. 

Abide knowing that above all things He will never leave you or forsake you. 

The Right Choice

I went through so much

Thinking in my strength 
I would be strong
But it failed…
I thought I could be bold
Not wanting something back
God had already from my side dispose
My pride was hurt 
And my emotions blown
Just to realize 
Wanting this was not worth it
It was just wrong!
That since the beginning 
I made the right choice
To be a servant of the High God
To step away from the damage source…
And now as time has passed
I made the mistake of reminising the past
Thinking something was there
I came empty handed
Blinded by the enemy’s snare
Of broken dreams
Whose pieces can never be restored
Instead of asking God for new ones to keep on…
This is on me
The fault lies now within
For allowing myself to even think
That this was all that was for me
The truth is so far from what I have seen
I learned in this journey
That I deserve better
That I am worthy 
Of being treated like a queen…
That some people are never meant to stay
The longer their time
The slower comes the tide 
That wipes all the pain away…
Now a lesson is being learned
Of my value
And the blind who came
That took me for granted
And forgot of the priviledge 
They had to know me one day
I don’t speak in pride
But all in humble truth
For I am priviledge to keep walking with God
And not depart from His side; I choose…
Choosing the will of God
Over mine I never regret
For God gives me everything
That no empty man for me can obtain…
Now my eyes are opened 
True light I see
His protecting power has been over me
From a greater mistake farther along
God showed He has something greater 
For I am His daughter
The daughter of the Most High God…

Turning

All my world turns 

Spinning again

In the direction 

Of the straight and narrow road

Where I find all

That I ever wanted and more

The path of everlasting love

The path of greatness in all

The path that leads me to a glory awe…

©Y.R.

Thoughts…

In the silence of a voice much of all is told…

The cry from deep in the soul…

Reaches out to God… 

The only one that knows…

The one in control…

Who knows the best…

Who knows ALL…

Nothing

I waited
For nothing to come
Not even the wind
Was bringing forth
Any hope; any joy
Barren land I’m in 
Where the truth is not seen
Lies take away my peace
Help Lord! Please!
I need to sleep!
Recue me from this pit!
Tears keep rolling
I’m waiting for happiness to stop them
And truth to dry them up
But what truth am I waiting for?
The patched up?
The ones with a facade? 
Hiding the cruel reality inside
Do I want to know?
Is there any truth at all?
In men not at all
But of you, Christ, I recall
Saying You are the Way, Truth and Life

So in you my Lord, the living Truth, I will rely

©Y.R.

SELF

I am talking to you, self,
You who takes my emotions
On a spinning motion
At an incontrollable speed
Oh indeed I can’t much understand
How you take me to the top
Where desperation crawls 
And covers me with no place to run
Oh you, who thinks to know it all!
My inner self, the controlling troll!
Not consulting, not pondering
But in a lack of truth resolving
Attacks every situation at its own will
Just to find
The cruel truth 
That abiding by his own thinking 
Nothing comes right
Even if it seems at first
The impulses of not consulting
The One who is the Beginning and End
Brings disillusion of what I think is best.
Oh if I could put a muzzle on your mouth!
Wrap you in chains to control you about
That I would have dominion to direct
And not you directing my every step
There is only one way
I’ll bring you up still wrapped in those chains
To the Holy Spirit who knows how to tame
Every bit of your own selfish desires
I’ll use the Word as a constant reminder
That you don’t control my every move
That my word and action will be in truth
Grounded on certainty of the knowledge 
That Jesus is my Lord 

I will obey Him and not you!

©Y.R.

Blowing Up

My heart is blowing up

My thoughts can’t go no more
I can’t find a stop
I have to find an exit in all
Oh how I wish I find
The exit to uncertainty inside
I want to break free
Be myself, the real me
The one, You, God created to be
I want to laugh 
Laugh again so hard
Surrounded by the joy
The one Your Spirit in me overflows
I need a moment
A long one to reflect
To think, organize, forget
All these emotions inside
Lord, please help
I need Your power divine
That soothing no human balm can give
That marvellous touch
Surrounding me with Your love so big
It is You!
Only You I need!
Its Your presence I seek!
For I know tears now dont cease
But with one touch from You
I will smile again
I’ll be truly free

©Y.R.

You Are Here



Let my heart rejoice in You
That every beat leaps
That every breath deeps
With Your overwhelming presence
Can I stay?
Under Your wings lay
In Your peace delight
Knowing my Lord, 
You are here by my side?
I want to so much!
Lean against your chest and know
That through all You are here
Lifting me up and wiping my tears

©Y.R.

My Will?

How naïve have I been!
Thinking my way is the ease
That I can graciously formulate
The plan of my life
Not realizing the little resources I have.
Futile thoughts my mind thinks
Pondering ways to God’s will skip
I am only deceiving 
Oh my! My own self!
Fighting with weak strength
The will of my Creator!
Poor of my soul!
A wretch is he
In its own way wanting to proceed
I wondering if that is the cause
Of what now goes
I feeling trapped in my own goals
Stuck in a tangle that doesn’t seem to clear
A tangle of all everything God doesn’t want near
Waiting for me is my Savior Divine
Waiting for me to decide
If I will break free of what I want

And finally to Him surrender my will and life

©Y.R.

Waking Up

I am dreaming of a new beginning
My process is soon ending
Bringing new blessings
I have only seen in my sleep
Oh what a relief!
When my heart just settles
In the love that is eternal
In the truth that sustains itself
In my loving Christ
I look back at my life
In my thinking realize
The road traveled has not destroyed
It has kept me strong
Every trial and situation mold
The person God wants to show
It’s overwhelming
I can’t fathom think
How in my darkest moments
God was working in me
Changing, instructing, and emerging in me
The woman He created
Breaking down the woman
The world wanted to make out of me
Is here where I see, I realize
That every situation
Gives forth another chance
That new beginnings will come in
When we surrender to God
Give Him our all
And over everything trust Him

Attention

IMG_0712
I wish you would seek
So diligently the presence of God
As you do worldly things
That your attention would gear more to the Word
That a strong rhythm of faith
Synchronizes with your heart’s beat
That your mind would be steadfast
In the truth of the Word
In the love of Christ who died for you
That you will never drift away
Oh how I long that you would comprehend
The great deliverance and peace
If you trust Him would obtain
That every dark moment
Is Him working in you
Whether you see it now
Or just not have a clue
That every situation that comes as a dismay
It is Him showing He is the only Way
Only for one reason He does this to you
So you lift up your eyes and realize
He is the only Way, Life and Truth
