The fruit of the righteous is a tree of Life, And he who wins souls is wise. (Proverbs 11:30)

Patty suffers long and she is kind;
Patty does not envy;
Patty does not parade herself, she does not puffed up;
Patty does not behave rudely,
Patty does not seek her own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
Patty does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
Patty bears all things,
Patty believes all things,
Patty hopes all things,
Patty endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4 Love suffers long and is kind;
Love does not envy; Love does not parade itself,
is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely,
does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.

The greatest Commandment Jesus gave us was to "Love one another"
Even though this just doesn't come easily for any human been, doesn't mean we shouldn't try to love one another.

I changed the word "Love" for my name to see how it will sound, I was laughing so hard when I red it back because it sounded so ridiculous to me! because it doesn't even come close to who I am.
After reading and laughing, I thought about who are the people in my life that I need to love more, a couple of names came into my mind, even though I know that these people have never like me because of who I am (Latino) I have decided to reciprocate with LOVE.

If I'm going to try to love these people, I would need to love them for who they are and not for the things they do. These things are the only thing that had prevented me for loving them, specially when it comes to God's name, I won't tolerated people using God's name to cover up for their mistakes...So this is no gonna be easy! But I believe that is for God to judge and not me.

It's all about Marriage

I found a great page on Face Book that I want to share with everybody.
It is a Christian base page which give you advices and prayers for husbands and wives.
I want to share on of the prayers written by the Smith's
Dear Lord, May your peace fill the hearts of husbands and wives from all around the world! I pray that your Holy Spirit speaks to all of us in such a personal way that we are compelled to respond, confident that it is you who called us! I pray a blessing over both husbands and wives, asking that you allow them to experience a fulfilled marriage that glorifies you! May your power sustain them, and may your wisdom lead them. Thank you for the gift of marriage and everything that we encounter. We trust you to do a good work in our marriages in Jesus Name AMEN!  ~ The Smith

Spiritual Warfare

Scriptures of encouragement when the enemy is upon us.

My God, my Rock, in Him will I take refuge; my Shield and the Horn of my salvation; my Stronghold and my Refuge, my Savior--You save me from violence. 2 Samuel 22: 3

Put on God's whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. Ephesians 6: 11

Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset--rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. 1 Peter 5: 8-9
