WHERE IS JESUS?


Where is Jesus? was my question in Cancun, Mexico, while we were vacationing there a couple of weeks ago. I saw this Nativity display at one of the hotels and noticed baby Jesus was missing. Then I saw another Nativity display at our own hotel and Jesus was missing there too. So I had to ask. I was told that in Mexico it's tradition to place baby Jesus until Christmas Eve and it is done reverently and with much love. Here in the United States and in my country of Nicaragua, the baby figure is set all together at once.

Jesus is the focal point of the Nativity at Christmas and of our present and future lives! Without Jesus there is no life. No forgiveness of sins, no eternal life, no fellowship with God.

Where is Jesus now? He sits at the right hand of God, interceding for us. Hebrews 7:24-25 says, "But because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood. Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them." For those of us who believe that Jesus is the Son of God, the Christ, the Messiah, the One who is to come, He also lives in our hearts.

Where is Jesus? It is and will always be the most important question of your existence. You can receive Him right this very second. Invite Him to come into your heart. Ask Him to come to wash you clean, to fill you with His Holy Spirit, and to become your Lord and Savior. He wants a relationship with you. He loves you! He wants to spend eternity with you and to set you free from sin and bondage. That is why He came. Today, ask Jesus to come. To come into your heart.

Dear Jesus,

I believe by faith that You are the Son of God, that you came to save me from all my sins. Thank you for dying for me. I repent of all the wrong I've done and invite You to come into my heart to be my Lord and Savior. I receive your free gift of eternal life. Please help me to follow You all the days of my life. In Your name, I pray. Amen!

For more information about becoming a child of God forever, feel free to read my blogs titled, "The Best Christmas Present Ever!" and "Christmas...Why Jesus?"

Have a Merry & Blessed Christmas!!!

Great message! I liked the part at the end about not having "fast food" quiet times with God, a drive-through experience, but to spend more time with Jesus and in the Word of God heart emoticon

SAVOR THE MOMENT!

Enjoying the last days of fall leaves. I love them so much because in Nicaragua, where I grew up, we do not have the four seasons. We have beautiful palms trees and tropical weather all year long. So fall colors are still breathtaking to see. 

Have a blessed Saturday and remember to breathe and savor each moment. Don't let the busy season steal your joy. Make it as peaceful and soothing as you can. You choose what is enjoyable, and keep Jesus in your hearts! "+"

HOW TO ARGUE EFFECTIVELY


If only we fed sweet things to each other all the time, instead of angry words. Right? But arguments are inevitable. The reason is because from time to time we'll have different opinions on a matter and disagree about them.

This picture was taken at our wedding in 1980. Since then we both have learned by trial and error. After thirty-five years of marriage we've learned a thing or two about how to resolve our disagreements quickly and effectively. I'm not a marriage counselor, but I've read many Christian books, articles, and attended Christian marriage conferences and seminars to learn about the art of oneness and communication.

When my husband and I need to discuss an important matter this is what we do:

1. Pray! We pray before our discussion. I also pray ahead of time for God to help me know what to say and what not to say. And also to prepare my husband's heart to receive well what I'm going to say. There were times I forgot to pray beforehand and the results were disastrous.

2. We set an appointment to meet in the living room without distractions.

3. We both sit down with soft music on the background. We've learned that it's not a good idea to stand in front of each other while arguing. Sitting down creates a non-threatening and relaxed atmosphere.

4. I tell my husband to relax and just to listen to me for the next five minutes without interrupting. I look at the clock to make sure I don't go over my time.

5. Then he talks for five minutes while I sit quietly making a great effort not to interrupt, and actively listen to what he has to say.

6. We use "I" messages instead of "You." For example, I say, "I feel neglected when you...instead of saying, "You neglect me when..." We learned that tool at a fun communication workshop years ago. It's better to express how your spouse's behavior makes you feel rather than accusing them, and causing them to act defensively.

7. The majority of the times we discovered we had misunderstood one another. Allowing each other to speak without interrupting is the key to understanding the situation at hand. Also by compromising we reach a fair scenario for both of us.

Most of the times we're done with our discussion in ten to fifteen minutes. Notice how I used the word, learn many times in this blog. It has been a process to learn how to communicate by utilizing the help of experts in communication and above all, seeking God's wisdom and protection in our prayers.

So pray for your marriage and take advantage of free Christian articles on communication at www.familylife.com. You can also invest in attending their fun and romantic marriage conferences called "A Weekend to Remember."

God bless you!

p.s. If you're not married yet, you can still apply some of these communication skills in your friendships and family situations.

heart emoticon Keep fighting for your marriage with God's strength and power!!! heart emoticon

I personally found the lyrics very touching. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY FOR YOUR MARRIAGE!!! In the good, the bad and the ugly times...keep on praying!


Dear Readers,

I talked about the importance of dating and prioritizing your marriage in previous blogs. Well, prayer is your biggest weapon to defend your marriage.

The Bible tells us to pray at all times and in all circumstances. To pray without ceasing.

Ephesians 6:18

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Please do not let your guards down. Even though I love God and my husband very much, I don't stop asking the Lord to help me love Him and my husband more each day. And even though it is extremely hard to pray when you're angry at your spouse, it's crucial to pray for God to help you in the bad and ugly times of marriage. 
My prayer sometimes will go like this, "Lord, I'm so angry. I can't believe my husband told me that. Please soften my heart and also let him see what he is doing. Please protect our marriage, Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen." Usually, during my prayer God will point to me the wrong things I said, too and helps me to be willing to receive my husband's apology when he says he's sorry. 

God will help you if you ask Him. My next blog will be, "How to argue effectively". 

May the Lord bless your marriage and keep it strong. Remember that His Word, the Bible, is a sword. Don't stop praying even when things are going smoothly and you're feeling happy. Keep asking God to protect your marriage and to keep it spiritually strong and healthy!

Thanks for reading :)

THANK YOU, LORD!!!

Today I received an email with a wonderful PS from my editor, who is also a Professor at Epic Bible College, Vice President of Inspire Christian Writers and was a missionary in West Africa for many years. It said, "PS, obviously the Spirit has anointed you in leading Bible studies and has guided you in creating this Bible study book, including the testimonies. I'm glad Inspire Press gets to publish it."
Before I'd type a single word of my manuscript I asked God to anoint my hands, my fingers, my heart, and my mind to write His words. Anoint means to consecrate, set apart and to officially or formally choose (someone) to do or to be something. At times I doubted myself and wanted to stop writing. The Lord encouraged me by sending me many new friends from Inspire Christian Writers and other talented Christian Authors who lovingly helped me by critiquing and editing my book and endorsing it. Thank you, Lord for your great faithfulness in this journey! 

heart emoticon I thank you for all my friends and their great help. My hands glorify you, my Lord.heart emotico
