Now I’m no medical expert, but I know a few that are.  And I was a Boy Scout, so I still remember how to spell first aid.  Disease comes in all fashions, as well as beyond their physical manifestations.  Disease also affects our minds, our surety of foot, our mental and even spiritual well-being.
Following His last meal with His disciples, Jesus makes a simple statement: 
“Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me.”  He had already told them, “I and the Father are One,” being, one in the same, God.  He continues, saying, “If you know Me (which they did), you will also know My Father.  From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”  Powerful words, powerful statements.  The essence of His presence, God revealing God Himself.  We can say to one another, “Don’t worry, be happy;” but that’s not the same as God saying to us, “Don’t let your heart be troubled,” with the authority of Creator.  Later Jesus would say, following His resurrection, “Peace be unto you.”  These statements defy fear itself!, and its manifestations of worry and depression, our fear as a disease for today and for tomorrow.  Our worry concerning everything we think about from our own perspectives, that take away any certainly we might conjure up.
Father, thank You for this revelation of Yourself, which goes beyond Your visitation to so many in years gone by, addressing our own diseases every day.  May You be glorified, credited with our growth and decisions of reliance on Your wisdom and power, Your instilling of holiness, right from wrong, and justice to all, healing our hearts and where You have us walk.
“Let the (this) peace of Christ, to which you were also called in one body, rule your hearts,” to heal your dis-eases.  And be thankful, to Him.
‭‭John‬ ‭14:1‬, 10:30, 14:7, ‭‭Philippians 4:7, Colossians‬ ‭3:15‬ ‭CSB‬‬ ‬‬

living w/god: Baptismal speech

I am Desire and this is my son Enrique Gianluca. Today, I am here to share with you how God has changed my life.

For a long time, I wondered why, why things were not happening the way I wanted them to happen, after all, I was working hard, I was providing, I was strong, and I trusted myself.  As I looked for answers, I turned to the world, but the world was not providing answers.  I found myself blind, hopeless, and disoriented, and I lost all perspective. In my desperation, I turned to Christ, and I asked Him to come into my life and free me from this burden and guide me to live for him.

It was not until God heard my request that I received answers. The day that He knocked on my door and I opened my heart to Him was the day I understood I inflicted this pain on myself because, for a long time, I trusted myself instead of trusting Him, I relied on myself when I should rely on His promise. Jesus said on Matthew 11: 28-29 “Come upon Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me. For I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul, and My yoke is easy, and my burden is light

When God came into my life, he offered me a new beginning, a new life, and I embraced it with open arms because for the very first time, I understood that I am not alone and I should not be afraid because everything is under His control, not mine, and so I trust Him, and today I declare Him as my savior, my refuge, and my strength.
