Ephesians 5:1-2(NIV):

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Daily Word: A New Creature

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Happy Birthday Mom

By Rosalba | Nov 29, 2016

God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish(sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away. Revelation 21:4(AMP)

Today I remember a beautiful, strong, and passionate woman-my mother, Rosa.

She passed 4 years ago February, and is in a far better place.

I know this, but the pain is still so great & deep.

I pray for all my brothers and sisters around this world who also mourn for loved ones which they have lost.

I reflect on the passage above which helps me to see and stand more secure in the knowledge that God is in control.  He will take care of us now and in eternity.

He is holding my mother in his warm embrace and she only feels love, no longer pain.

The times, like today when I search for understanding through the tears and heartache, I only find comfort in God’s Words.

So that is my prayer for You my Beloved, allow God to heal your heart and remind You that He watches over Your loved one & that they are His loved one as well.  He is Our Father God & will wipe away our tears, Amen.white_rose_1600x1200

“Released” Poem

By Rosalba | Nov 28, 2016

I am released from the bondage I was in,

I am free to see the beauty deep within

I mourn for the young, how they run for the next high

When they would find pure ecstacy in simply being still for a while

They run to their friends, they run to the mall,

They rush to text a buddy standing next to them in the hall

Instead of thinking “What for?”

They run their mouth off to a teacher to demonstrate they are “Special” & “Unique”

And believe a good & respectful student is quite simply a freak

They are running around in circles, in zig-zags, up walls

Never once stopping & thinking”What happens when I fall?”

They run away from home & return once again

And Mom & Dad-so afraid to discipline,

Run in circles as well, trying desperately to be their best friend

So they too can grasp onto the youth they once had-their reasoning:

“Well, I was once young myself-”I ran around & drank, smoke, and had sex with my girlfriend or boyfriend(perhaps both) so, you know, I can relate…” and believe they are good parents because they’re cool parents

Making their childrens’ lives memorable

Never seeing clearly…until it’s too late

So what is it that these kids see?

Mom runs to the plastic surgeon

Dad runs to the bar(beer or martini on every street corner-they don’t need to run far)

Mom runs to the gym to find the figure she left in high school

Dad runs to the porn to find the sexual high

A fool of the flesh

And what do they find after all this running?

Nothing but a dirty, empty, mess

So we wonder why the youth today are detached, desensitized, indifferent?

It’s no great mystery

The apple-whether perfectly formed or full of worms-does not fall far from the tree

I am released from the bondage I was in,

I am free to see the beauty deep within

Thank You, Jesus

Daily Word:The Lord is my Constant

By Rosalba | Nov 28, 2016

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5(NIV)

All my life I felt that, no matter what, I could handle whatever came my way. That I was in control, a survivor. When faced with decisions I would rationalize, weigh the options, then choose that which would benefit me in the future. But there are some things that just happen, that’s out of our control, that spin us in this huge whirlwind of madness and then spit us out to the curb. Then what?

Being someone who did not grow up in the Word, I find myself being an adult who is learning new truths everyday. So the “then what?” was realizing I needed to add a new word in my vocabulary-“humble.” I saw for the first time just how much pride I was walking in-too much. Asking for help was just not humanly natural for me to do. It is still a challenge I face each day-God will never leave me or forsake me means to me that instead of trying to be my own constant source of strength, I can release that burden, put it on the cross, and rest. The Lord is my constant.

“Jesus, I thank you for taking all my burdens unto you, releasing me from my pride, and showing me the true beauty of a humble heart.”

Week-End Reflection:”Give Thanks To The Lord”

By Rosalba | Nov 25, 2016

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
Cry out, “Save us, God our Savior;
gather us and deliver us from the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name,
and glory in your praise.”
Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.

Then all the people said “Amen” and “Praise the Lord.” 1 Chronicles 16:34-36(NIV)

Giving Thanks

By Rosalba | Nov 23, 2016

Do you pray everyday?

Do you include “Thank You” in your prayer?

I believe most of us pray when we are in need or desperate.

I have learned that it’s about being thankful for what the Lord has already done for us. Look at the everyday miracles and express your gratefulness to God. Give thanks and affirm what will be today and in the future for our father will provide. Placing yourself in that positive attitude at the start of each day will have you Thanking God for more and more. Fellowship Page welcomes your prayer requests, Thanksgivings, and other expressions of faith.

Love & Blessings,
