Yes, there are times we all need medical attention.  Perhaps it’s due to a scratch or fall, either of which can happen in ways beyond our imaginations!  That’s all on the outside, and requires antiseptics and ointments and coverings, to help us heal from the inside out.  It could also be we need a medical procedure, which will require some of the same.  But how do we patch up our insides?  How do we heal and get back to ourselves again when we’re overwhelmed or worse, offended by another person or even offended by our self, or seemingly lost in our minds like water in our ears from swimming or driving higher in the mountains or on an airplane?
Sometimes we go to the doctor for physical or mental reasons, but forget where to go for help outside of these.  God is right there waiting:  all of the time, waiting to help us and heal us and bring us back to being productive once again, skipping and running, smiling and laughing. Hear these words of His:  “A joyful heart is good medicine.”  Oh how I needed to hear this, one time in particular.  It was even prescribed by a real doctor!
Father in Heaven, thank You for Your words of healing which is good medicine, reminding us, “The joy of the LORD is our strength; yet I will triumph in You; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!  You are my strength; You make my feet like those of a deer and enables me to walk on mountain heights!”
Good medicine heals us from the inside out, and even changes our appearance.  Consider this:  You love Him, though you have not seen Him. And though not “seeing” Him now, you believe in Him and rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy;” great medicine, regardless of our ailments.  Love Him.

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.
