Using God's name...

Under the law of Moises it was made not to be used God's name in vain.

Exodus 20:7
"You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold [him] guiltless who takes His name in vain"

It seem that people these days have forgotten this sad me to say that I see this happening more and more everywhere, people are using God's name for their own gain and self-gratification or the most common, taking credit for others hard work!

I can see that church it's at fault, these days churches are too scare to teach God's word the way those words are written in the Bible. Churches these days care about the number of members they have, it seems like this is the new priority for them. It is not sufficient to be religious! False religion is idolatry, and the idolatry of unbelief spread like a pestilent plague throughout the land.

It is time for us to make a change, our country needs strong churches to face the challenges that are to come. Our country needs to be strong! not only physically but spiritually.

When you see someone taking advantage of God's name, do not celebrate what they do because you will be the same as they are.

Lord, I pray that you will speak to the ones that are in high position to reform the way your word has been tough in our churches. Lord, I pray that we all are going to be accountable to each other to grow strong in your word...AMEN

Happy Father's Day

My Father was an alcoholic person, who put my mother through hardship from the beginning.
They had 4 children together which one of them die at birth, the doctor told my mother that the baby had die of heart failure, he told my father that he had killed our new baby born sister.
My dad made a promised to my mom that he will never drink again! from that day on we became a normal family, those were the best years of my life! my mom got pregnant again and she had a beautiful and healthy baby girl (that will be my younger sis).
We were happy, we didn't have much but we had what we needed to live a normal life.

Then everything changed again! ten years after that promise my dad went back into drinking again…those days were terrifying days for all of us because my brothers and I were teens and my little sis was only 10 years old. I remember my mom saying "he is going back to who he really was…an alcoholic"
I remember been scared and not caring about school anymore, I remember thinking on looking for a job to support my mom and I'm sure that my older brothers were thinking about the same thing.
I remember my mom and I making paper flower to sell at the market place, my mom will go to the market place to sell the flowers and later she will come back with something to cook for dinner.

Now my dad was working all the time but when he started drinking he would even take two weeks off without saying anything to his boss and he will spend those two weeks drinking and spending the little money we had.

In 1983 my dad came to Jesus and he accepted Him into his life…it has been a great battle for my dad trying to stay sober, but now we had all moved out and I have been trying to make him see that only Jesus can cure him.
My dad is now 73 years old, he doesn't drink any more, he is taking care of my mother and what gives me peace in my heart is that I can see that he has taken the Lord more seriously.
My dad will never be the perfect dad, but I know for sure that God is in his life.

I love my dad and I pray that our Lord will bless him abundantly in every way!

Teach you little girls to stay innocent

My daughter and I went to the store to get an outfit for her 8th grade graduation 'Promotion', we were very disappointed to find out that everything the store has is way too reviling for her taste, she was very upset when she couldn't find a single nice top that didn't show too much cleavitch.
 It is very sad to see how the fashion industry is targeting girls at very young age and tv just makes it worse...that is way we monitor the few shows our kids watch.

Since I became Christian and learned right from wrong I'd been trying to teach people that modesty, morals, good principles are part of been a Christian and I'm not afraid to talk to my kids face to face about the truth and danger of alcohol, drugs, gambling, anorexia, sex, etc.

My husband and I are trying to raise our kids according to God's word, our kids know right from wrong and I pray that they will always make the right choices, always thinking of WJWD.

It is up to us parents to guide our children and to teach them God's word, that alone will protect them from the evil of this world.

My 17 year wedding anniversary!

Thank you Lord for the many blessings in my marriage.
I know that you have been with us through thick and thin.
I know without you I wouldn't be married right now.
Lord I put my marriage and family on your hands.
