What’s on your agenda for Spring?  There are so many things to do to open the windows and open the patio!  There’s dirt to move and plants to plant, shrubs to trim after their flowerings and mulch to spread.  Oh!  And grass to mow and trim.  And what about you after a Winter of snow and rain? What’s on your list?
Spring cleaning also includes the gardens of our minds and hearts, cleaning away the cobwebs of our minds and souls, reigniting our spirits and enthusiasm for that which is right and good.  We know how to include medical and dental checkups, along with exercising and fresh air, but, “How do you do these?” you might ask.  How do we get down deep into our minds and soul?
The Psalmist was inspired, actually meaning breathed-on to write, “My life is down in the dust; give me life through Your word. I will run, I will pursue the way of Your commands, when You enlarge my heart, as You broaden my understanding;”  all of which is to say, clean me up, God, by Your words, Your commanding thoughts, that I might run!  Welcome to Spring!
Father, clean us up as You enlarge our understanding of You and Your thoughts and ways.  Forgive us of a Winter’s portion of apathy.  With the energies of Spring, of Your Spirit, engage our spirits as we read and hear, listen to Your words of life, and cause us to run and no longer be weary, but anticipate Your leading our lives this Springtime.
Are you ready to run on the inside?  Pursue God’s thoughts through His words and by walking and talking with Jesus, being cleaned in your mind and your heart enlarged for what He would have you do and be today!

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.
