Devotion

fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer… Rom. 12:11b-12 NASB   My time in Baton Rouge finally came to its end. I knew that eventually, the internship would come to its end. What I did not expect was the feeling of longing that started to invade my heart. Baton Rouge was not yet another place in which I spend summer. It was the place where God spoke to me, introduced me to what deep inside of me I was longing for. God put me in a loving and caring congregation. The Vineyard…

Listening

Listening is not the same as hearing. There’s a huge difference. We can hear a broad range of sounds, noises, voices, languages, etc. To listen is an entirely different issue. This would be my third week in America. One might think that the process of speaking your second language will turn on automatically. Well, it is not that simple. Our brain holds the ability to identify a foreign language and classify it as known or unknown. Generally speaking, it doesn’t take me too long to switch from Spanish to English. My ears and my eyes recognize the langue immediately. The…

Full Force

It was around early December when I got a phone call. They couldn’t find her. We called everyone we knew, without a positive outcome. As the days passed it became evident that she was gone.

Confesión

Las ultimas semanas han sido complicadas para mi. En cuestión de horas la percepción que tenia del mundo y de la gente dio un giro de 180˚. No creí que hubiera tanta maldad en el mundo. Me resulto difícil procesar el hecho de que el ser humano puede llegar a transgredir limites que inclusive el pensaría inviolables. En cuestión de un par de meses perdí a dos personas que quise mucho. Una de ellas ya esta con el Señor, la otra se encuentra en un lugar esperando se resuelva cuánto tiempo deberá permanecer recluida en ese lugar.             Los cristianos…

Eres fiel

Enséñanos a contar de tal modo nuestros días, que traigamos al corazón sabiduría. Salmo 90:12 LBLA 2015 fue un año complicado. Estuvo marcado por altas y bajas, por alegrías y tristezas, por victorias y momentos de retirada, personas importantes vinieron y otras se fueron. Nadie dijo que la vida seria fácil. Enfrente retos personales y laborales. Me enfrente a mi mismo. Hubo batalles que perdí porque la pelee en mis fuerzas. Otras las gane porque sencillamente las puse en manos de aquel que pelea por mi. Al mirar para atrás puedo ver que en todo tiempo Dios estuvo presente. Situaciones que…
