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…

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

A Love

I love you
Eventhough it hurts
All the pain
Did not blow my love away
It is still beating
Strong with each pulse
Strong love you don’t know
It is not human to love again
When wounds cover
Still opened in dismay
It is a love only from Divine
A love only given by JesusChrist
The love that trascended
Time and space
Overpassing any hurt and pain
A love given so freely to me
Even when I don’t succeed
I have the unconditional fountain of love
That is God in me

I Will Not Forget You

“Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭49‬:‭15‬ NKJV)

All the time people are coming in and out of our lives. There are some that do not want to be part of it. They simply walk away. Then there are others that push us away. Not because we have done wrong, but simply because they do not know how to handle to be around us anymore. This is not about us. It’s their own internal battle that pushes us away. Is their survival mechanism.

In this particular dilemma we get stuck. It is hard to deal with rejection, abandonment and forgetfulness. We do not understand why they have rejected us, have pushed us away or have simply forgotten us. It hurts because we do not want to be rejected. We don’t want to be forgotten like we were just a mere leaf that the wind blew by. Unfortunately, it does happened, and the enemy likes to take advantage of those situations to drill in our minds how worthless we are. That them forgetting is a sign how inexistent or little meaning you had in their lives.

Guess what? That is not true! People do not determine our worth! Them forgetting about you and leaving you in the air cannot control your mind with unnecessary frustration. Them choosing to forget cannot control. You know why? God says that even when people forget us or the good we have done in their lives God doesn’t forget us! How wonderful is that!
Isaiah described it like a mother that cannot forget her child. How much more precious are we to Lord Almighty! We are His children and He cares for us. Even when loneliness and abandonment wants to sink us in a whole of desperation and worthlessness God says it is not like that. Man can hurt, walk away and forget but our everlasting God will not forget us. He said I will not leave you or forsake you.

Be assured brothers and sisters that God is still present. Even when everyone has deserted you and may have even forgotten your name God says, “Yet, I will not forget you.”

Your Word

When my mind rumbles
And I tend to over think
I will ground my thoughts
In your Word of peace

When I see darkness
Surround and abound
The lamp unto my feet
Takes all darkness out

When the battle gets stronger
And weakened I get
I meditate on your Word
That increases my strength

When I do not know
The road to pick
I’ll cling to Your Word to guide
To do what is pleasing to Thee

Lessons

There are lessons in life
We need to learn
One is to submit to God
Dispite all hurt and pain
To surrender our will
For God’s perfect way
To allow His purpose
To be our gain
Not to look at the present or
The past circumstance
That distorts the glorious future
God designed for us to have
That all soon passes
In its due time
Healing is received guided by His hand
Even when we don’t all understand
Our knowledge in the process increases
When we choose to trust
And in God rely

@Y.R.

In A Moment

In a moment
Where the silence abides
My heart quietly gives you its time
When words don’t have
It’s smooth flow
I lay in Your presence
Waiting on You, Oh Lord!
In a momnent
Where roads to take
Seem to have unclear ways
I hold on to Your hand
Let Your Spirit lead the way
When I can’t handle another step
I cried to You
You carry me
Renew my strength
In a moment
Where caos surrounds
My heart overwhelms
Distress in me abounds
I accept the peace
You spoke about
In a moment
When I think all hope is gone
I go back to the moment
Where in your presence
I was renewed
I grew strong

©Y.R.

I Look To Him

I will look beyond
I will see the greatness of God
Where my peace lies
And my comfort stays
Where I don’t fear trouble
Where I am not dismayed
I will look to Him
Who saved my soul
The Eternal and gracious
Jesus, our Lord
Whom to all the praise has to be
My Christ, My Saviour, My King

©Y.R.

You Will Make It

Thinking about God my heart sinks
Yes, it sinks.
I am confronted with myself
I realize His greatness and eternal love
I stare in awe
Of my sinful condition
How He sent Christ to cleanse me from all
I meditate on His Word
Every letter; every phrase
Knocking at my heart
Asking to abide
So its work may start.

Then there comes my troubles
My mind wants to influence
What God Himself has said
It’s the best for my life
Surrendering to Christ
Letting Him change inside
It’s that battle that takes my peace
I, knowing what is good to me
Choosing things that break me
Not nourish me
Spiritually, I mean.

Then my soul ponders some more
On His grace
The one we don’t deserve
Why? Why would He be like that?
When my sinful nature reveals that
I keep failing Him
No righteous in me
It doesn’t matter to Him
The times my sinfulness makes me sink
His loving grace lifts me
I am certainly not perfect at all
But to His grace I cling all day long
For when I can’t He says I am here
I will carry you through
You will make it, My Dear.

Will

Why do I fight?
What good is it to my life?
The struggle inside
Of doing my will
Or following Christ’s
Hard I excuse
Bringing to my human mind
Incomprehension of the Divine
For it is not my mind who needs
To bring reasoning to this
But my spirit in me
Listen to His Word
Accept and keep
Though my ways may seem good
The future is only known to Him who
Is the beginning and the end
The maker of heaven and earth
Him who always knows what’s best
I relinquish my will to His way
Having assurance in me
That His will is always for my good
Even when I don’t think

Speaking Heart

Let your heart speak
All that you hold within
The feelings that pressure
Forcing out the hidden treasure
Of who you are
Let your heart
Bring forth the words
Those never heard
Those you think insane
That many not understand
But I do
I want to hear them all
The essence of your soul
What’s beneath it all
Tell me, let me know
Don’t let shame stop you though
Theres no shame in truth
To say and to be you
To be honest and real
Your words are your appeal
To trust you more and more
Don’t let fear become a wall
Making silence great enemy in all
Impeding me to walk
With liberty in your life
How can I walk in the dark?
Is the light of your opened heart
That shines the trust path
Things have to be right
Let honesty and truth always abide
Then freedom will be your life
And everything will be alright

©Y.R.

That Moment

That moment
Where I see things different
Where I notice the spark
Revelation from divine
Where Christ’s light shines
Oh how He opens our eyes!
To see what we didn’t see
Clouded by all the turmoil within

It’s that moment
When I realize
The pain and suffering
Changed something in my life
I see all clear inside of me
All the lies of the enemy I believed
And now with the truth
My soul receives freedom
My heart fills with peace
I don’t longer see the pain as a burden
But a lesson to keep
That what God does
Is always better for me

It’s that moment
That I can rejoice with praise
God shows why is worth the pain
To surrender our wishes and dreams
For what He has is greater
Than now we can see
Walking in the path of Christ
That in every situation
His light may shine

New Victory

I have risen
My light shines
In the presence
Of Him, my God divine
I have understood
The greatness of Your presence
The faithfulness in You
That in all things
You are all in control
That from the pit
You rescued my soul
Oh how much I give
Glory and praise
To Christ, my Saviour, my Lord
The renewer of my strength
The One who makes all things new
With the fullness of His Love
A love so powerful
No one can match
No human on Earth
Can ever surpass
It is that love
That fills me indeed
That opens my eyes
That the truth I may see
That all that matters
Is who is by my side
My God the Mighty Warrior
Who wins all battles of mine

©Y.R.

Gratitude

I have held on to You
Trusting all the promises
All the things You said you will do
In my wait
I breath your peace
I see Your work in me
Even through tough times
You have been strengthening me
I express deep gratitud
To my God
The Almighty

Hope for Them

Looking back
At the kindness given
At all that has been forgiven
To those that hurt my life
I come to realize
The great challenges of this path
The road of giving
Not waiting for a return
Giving more than a human wants
Being like Christ
Even when it hurts
Trusting God will heal, restore
And give life again
Hoping God’s touch would come to people’s heart
That for once they would understand
That soon they can realize
The only solution for their life
Is Christ’s Eternal Life
It’s my hope for them to find
What has been my greatest gift in life
The love unconditional to abide
And mercy freely received
Of Christ, the Savior
The one that changes
Makes a life complete

Faith

IMG_8684.JPG
My faith faided
Dying slowly
It gasped for air
Trying to stay alive in all despair
I tried to help her
I held her hand tightly
I whispered, “You will survive”
But Inside of me asking
How could she stay alive?
There was nothing to bring back her health
What could give her hope?
Renew her? Make her well?
If she only held on one more minute
Breath a little deeper
And wait on her deliverer
He will come, I whispered
Just hold on
Trust His Word
It makes you strong!
Faith! Don’t die!!!
He has said He will deliver
He will never lie!
You can’t give up
You are too close
Come and rise up!
It is the time to cling
To the promise He gave you
That He will never leave
To always keep strong
Your battle He has won!
I see now your smile
My heart jumps with joy
Seeing your strength
With quickness rising up
How lovely you look!
I cannot describe
The great strength you regained
Knowing God will be there with you
Always till the end
Knowing He will keep you alive
With you I’m assured His glory in my life will shine

Mind Map

Hello! I have been gone for a minute, but always remembering all my faithful readers.

Today, I want to share what came to me today. By nature, I am a visual learner. In order for my mind to grasp things in a more profound way I have to see it. Like many of you I am too, an over thinker. I think and analyze EVERYTHING! At times I am guilty of going to the extremes. So to put my thoughts in order I use mind nodes or in old school lingo – brain maps.  They help so much to create a visual escenario of what is going on in my mind. This way I can “see” the thoughts and “clean” those that do not need to stay.

As I was storming through the thoughts of the current process God is taking me through; I wrote my thoughts to get a better perspective. I can’t post everything I wrote, of course, but I do want to share the last link I added. I titled it “What God Wants.” When we follow God for a while we tend to wonder what God wants for me and what He wants us to do. Every time I go through a trial or breaking process that I need fresh godly perspective I add this title to one of the mind node branches. It helps me see and focus on the right thoughts that are in my head but the clutter of frustration, disappointment, and confusion don’t let me see.

Here is what I discovered that I KNOW but in the middle of the different situations that clutter my life I forgot…

Thinking this way will keep you on track. God bless You All! 😀

It’s Time

IMG_8455.JPG
It’s time to let go
It’s time to advance
To push foward
Over all circumstance
To find the happiness within
The joy that Christ brings
It’s time to forget
To stop the regrets
To focus on future events
It’s time to be free
From prisons within
From all that has hurt
No past can be changed
Just the future we have
To receive what God has
Given to us to enjoy our lives
It’s just that time
To start over and live
To not pity ourselves in
Accepting the peace
Jesus promised to give
Just enjoy what we have
The greatest gift of life
The assurance of salvation
Through Jesus Christ, Eternal Life

Broken Dream

IMG_8417.JPG

I once lived a dream
So powerfully real!
Invading my senses and heart
It made it race from the start.

How real was it?
So much!
Too real to my senses
Too real to the touch

But the feeling
Tainted it was
Covered under the cloud
Was hidden a lie

No matter how wondeful
This dream turned to be
The lie that was hidden
Rotted it from within

Not yet discovered
Not yet seen
The presence of this lie
Killed the dream

As much as we wanted
The dream to proceed
It would have never lasted
A dream so unreal
A dream in a dream

There needed to be
A break from the dream
A wake up moment
Reality to peek

That all that was lived
Could not be kept alive
In a dreamy cloud
Hidding hurts and lies

Now at the wake
From this dream is
Pieces of a heart
To deal with

A hurting heart
That just woke up
Realizing with pain
The dream had to stop

Who will deal with such?
The only One who knows
The pain and suffering
Given from those He loved

He who even when hurt
Forgave them all
With no regret
Jesus, the healer of all heart’s pain.

Free Man

I once knew a man
Who gave thought to his life
Wondering each day
How he would survive

Pondering and planning within
Constantly seeking
The real truth of life
That would set him free

How many thoughts ran
Through his stressed head
No solution evident
Him feeling astray

Though days passed slowly
And answers untold
The struggled continued
Deepening in his soul

Until one great day
Acknowledge he did
Christ the Savior
As having the freedom key

It was in that day
His eyes fully rose
Looking at heaven
Thanking the Almighty God

For now he is different
Changing man is he
A man saved by Grace
A man freed complete
