Rapid Promotion

leave a comment »

The boss called one of his employees into the office.

“Rob,” he said, “you’ve been with the company for a year. You started off in the post room, one week later you were promoted to a sales position, and one month after that you were promoted to district manager of the sales department. Just four short months later, you were promoted to vice-chairman. Now it’s time for me to retire, and I want you to take over the company. What do you say to that?”

“Thanks,” said the employee.

“Thanks?” the boss replied. “Is that all you can say?”

“I suppose not,” the employee said. “Thanks, Dad.

Work Virus

leave a comment »

There is a new virus going around, called “work”. If you receive any sort of “work” at all, whether via email, internet or simply handed to you by a colleague…DO NOT OPEN IT.

Work has been circulating around our building for months and those who have been tempted to open “work” or even look at “work” have found that their social life is deleted and their brain ceases to function properly.

If you do encounter “work” via email or are faced with any “work” at all, to purge the virus, send an email to your boss with the words “Sorry…I’m off to Home Depot.” The “work” should then be automatically deleted from your brain.

If you receive “work” in paper-document form, simply lift the document and drag the “work” to your garbage can. Put on your coat and skip to the nearest cafe with two friends and order three double chocolate espressos. After repeating this action 10 times, you will find that “work” will no longer be of any relevance to you.

Send this message to everyone in your address book. If you do not have anyone in your address book, then I’m afraid the “work” virus has already corrupted your life.

Mastering Chihuahuas 2

leave a comment »

There is a point of connection with God in every situation. The release of this communication would cause for us to walk on The Legitimate Experience, and not on a copy.

For all people is easier to walk according to “feelings”. In time I have learned that the way we feel doesn’t dictate what is right and what is wrong. Feelings don’t dictate Morality.

So, how can I ever rely in the way that I feel to respond in every situation? Never.

Confidence in God is not earned by my “Good Works”. My good works must only be the result of that relationship with Him. Confidence in God comes from TRUST. From trusting in all we read about Him in the Bible, and from everything we heard Him said. Can you believe that there are lots of types of Bibles? Yeah. The devil did some work to get God out of our heads, and out of our hearts. But if you want to ever BE the best of you…Just as you would with a Lover, then you MUST pursue Him. God plays no tricks, He is a true LOVER.

I once heard that God created this awesome venue called “feelings” to explain to us what I must need to give relief to. But how about going thru a season of waiting “something” and just have to wait? Neither food, sex, money, any kind of fun can solve the main issue. Yeah, right! Every one of the above would find its appropriate time and way to be expressed; jet is not thru them that we find the answer to the quest. Only God has all answers. I’m not talking about never do those things in the right context; all I’m saying is that you can just put enough water in the cup, and wait until you put it again. That’s all.

In essence, what it is a Chihuahua anyway?

Wrong thoughts. See, wrong thinking is what cause wrong behavior. BELIEVING right about God then makes easier for all to draw better signals, if you will, of connection with Him. In the right tune you can connect with the real God. AND all those Chihuahuas would be just piece of cake. IN the past I have dwell (and sometimes I fight) on that old cycle of shame, guilt, unbelief, but I have a God who is stronger than any devil. Yeah! Lest call things by the right name. And God is a LOVER.

Taking every though CAPTIVE is fun if you do it with in the basis of knowing who God really is. This not about “anger management” or “positive thinking”. GOD IS NOT POSITIVE, GOD IS RIGHT. Sometimes we don’t like the way we ought to grow, but God knows what we need regardless of our comfort. God is not interested so much in that as He is on our character, He does not want for us to suffer much than what we can carry, therefore isn’t about going and suffer to grow. Not. Is about doing all that He is doing. He is pure LOVE. Real LOVE. And not the kind of “Hollywood Love”. The Bible teaches what the right one is. Do the search.

WE CAN NOT AVOID A BIRD FROM FLYING ON THE TOP OF OUR HEAD. BUT WE CAN NOT LET THEM MAKE A NEST. Get that?

All come down to a RELATIONSHIP with Him. Pursue His guidance. That’s where the FUN begins. Lest Change this mess! His LOVE never changes. Joy comes in the morning!!!

Be Blessed.

Mastering Chihuahuas!

with one comment

I believe in the power of stories. Do you? Do you like to hear one?

As a Catholic for 32 years I had never heard of the power of God’s greater adversary. Created as Lucifer (the morning star), he then became known as Satan after being throw out of heaven. Why? This being was the Worship Chorus’s leader. One day he looks at its amazing beauty and was astonished at how beautiful he was. Then he thought about being he the worshiped instead of God. He got together one third of the angelic host and convince them of fighting against God. Therefore all of them, including him, Lucifer, all were kick out of the third Heaven. So, as that happens he came to be named Satan, which is interpreted as “The Adversary”.

I thought that his history all ended there. First act: this angel mess up (and could done it since every being God creates He gives free will to). Second act: this angel is thrown out and disappears. No No. He is a spirit, can not be destroyed until the end of times. So it goes around like a roaring lion seeing to whom he can devour. He is not the opposite of God since God Is ALL knowing, ALL present, ALL powerful. But true is we need to be informed. I need it. Otherwise every time I fail I can think that every time is all just my fault. But He, the devil, is the one behind every darkness and all evil comes from him and only him. More clearly, he inspires all that is dark.

So this being moves in the spirit, he dwells on all opportunities to bring us back to our old nature (the old nature without God, before we have Jesus living with us, in us). Then, every time we are in pain, let said “life happens” he then pursue us to cling to too many stupid stuff to gave us RELIEF for, instead of walking in TRUTH. That is as if I decide to avoid GRACE toward ENRICH SOME NEUROTRANSMITERS.

I used to.

Pain. Get a chocolate. Rejection. Shopping. Unforgiveness. How about premarital sex? And on and on. Every one of this God isn’t against it, me either. And He is so for it since He created, for us to enjoy to its FULNESS, in the right time, in the right way. Why? So we can be FULFIL to the FULNESS, FULNESS, FULNESS. No matter how much I tried. His design is the very best. No, I’m not Married jet, but I know what I’m talking about.

Remember, we must know current events, and the adversary’s affairs. And we need so, because without meting an enemy, how we can go to war? Without going, how can we ever win? Spiritual war is easy, when Jesus is next to us. Otherwise we are blind, deaf, dumb, and all we do is:

Chocolate….and on, and on, and on.

How He operates? Thoughts. We must master our thinking according to God’s thinking. And from it, answer and build. Explore thoughts as you would a “Chihuahua”. The devil is not going to win anyways. Trust only the Lord God. You need to LIVE, not just exist as a tree, piece of wood, or an empty glass. If you believe that there is not an enemy is only because you are a little late in pursuing your REAL dreams which is in the identity that God gave you. YOU ARE A WINER. More than a Conqueror. You & I. All of us.

And I Am a Victor!!! Almost 5 years after knowing all these. I Am Awesomely Loved!

…to continue.

The Mind of Peace 2

leave a comment »

Are you being tested? If so, just pray: : “Lord, you’ve put your finger on some areas in me. Pluck them out of my heart. Encourage me, Lord that I’m not going backward — I’m going forward with you!”

So, Thinking Brilliantly is not like going to a conference and try to change your behavior, isn’t either to deny that there is pain. Thinking Brilliantly is simply holding to God in a private and intimate relationship where you can open your heart to Him alone and be changed. As a result of it our behavior would change, our perception would get better, our response would be a response and no a reaction, and in time we would mature. We would be ready to love, even the unlovable, and to embrace of His love more and more. Thinking as Christ is Thinking Brilliantly. There is no other hope, and we all must remember to hold fast to Him at all times.

Knowing who we are IN Christ would encourage us to hold fast to the faith we had been given and to work it out to discover the answer to our path. That every promise God make would come to past, and that to that effect we are being made ready to embrace and to overflow with such strength that no weapon formed against us would take us out of our place, and even in the midst of pain we would prevail. Our God is greater, Our God is stronger, and Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God!!!

Vision gave pain a purpose, and out of all is the purpose of learning to love as He does. To be restored to His likeness, as in the beginning. Remember? Mankind is born with a purpose, lest do it!! Again, did you have a Vision for your Life? If not, God can give you one. LISTEN.

Be Blessed!! Lest Think Brilliantly Today!!! God is at Hand!!!!
He is always ready to Teach
. God doesn’t lie.
HE is always ready!
Be Blessed!!!

The Mind Of Peace

leave a comment »

The extreme of one side is called religious thinking and said: Worry/Good Works. The other extreme of that same side is called new age thinking and said: Denial/Good Feelings. The Right side said: Discernment, thru Unity…with God.

Can we still advancing in our venture while tasting pain? Can pain be walk out by embracing peace at the same time? At the Same Time? What? Really?

Peace, as you must had heard before is not the absence of difficulties but the Divine Grace we can hold fast to while in the midst of “the matter”. When all means fail, like a piece is missing…Security, Peace, Joy. All I need is an anchor in the midst of the difficulty to get me back to my feet again. Divine Peace.

Thinking Brilliantly.

What is Thinking Brilliantly?

Is not denial, isn’t coldness, isn’t avoiding reaching out to others and mourning with them, even sometimes we need to cry with them. Thinking brilliantly is no other than thinking from God and with Him. What is in the mind of God then? One of the various things I know about Him is that He is good; the rest is on the Bible. In essence, HE IS STRONG to carry me. And so cool to walk beside me regardless of my mess. Now in time He requires commitment, obviously, but HE is more than anything freaking amazing I can dare to imagine; God is full of greater Mercies every new day.

From victory to victory.

To me the practice of walking out in the midst of anything is to be able to handle anything using my heart and not my anger, my love and not unforgiveness, my light which is God’s own Light that we carry when working from Him. With Him. To Hold fast. To listen to what His heart is saying and do the best with my faith to LOVE as He does. In time I learned a little, in times I cry, In times I rejoice, but more I have counted…Joy, Joy, Joy. To me is an ongoing discipline, Pray, Listen, Obey. Receiving a fresh word from God and to put that to practice. Walking by faith.

…continue.

The Purpose of Pain

leave a comment »

Vision gave pain a purpose.

When you don’t like what you see and you can not change it. In life I have experience the lost of a best friend in a car accident, the lost of friendships due to walking different directions, the lost of opportunities, the lost of beautiful relationships. That hurts. Lots.

There can also be obstacles to freedom, soul tides that we need to be broken, strongholds, old habits, addictions, lies that need also to be broken; and people we need to forgive. Holding an offense against someone is the most difficult and painful thing to overcome (trust would take its time). So, growing…it is very painful as well. Very. At least to me. And age is just a number.

I am just astonished at thinking how much strength a human is able to carry, there are thousands if not millions of situations in our life in which this strength is called to do its work; jet some kind of pain can just be handle in oneness with God. That kind came not from a Divine plan but is used as a Divine appointment to take us to the next level with God. The pain of growing said: How ‘Bout me?? Then, we are introduced to the opportunity to go to the next level. With a vision before hand, pain finds its purpose. Sometimes instead of gaining some greater revelation to unfold in front of us the relief we immediately need, all we are called to do is to grow in faith and in wisdom. Pain is not created by God to give us lessons. But He can use it to serve Him in making us grow instead of just walking on denial, or coldness toward Him.

We all know that men are born to conquer, that every man and women want to be completed. Once you spend enough time discerning what is the rock in your way that you stumble with in “the season”, then you can come out with only one last resort: Growth. Therefore, why we have to give lots of walks around ourselves as if searching for a tail. Simple? Be you, be sincere, use pen & paper and talk to Him. He is not mute, never dumb, not deaf, never cold, and always ready. FOR YOU. AND JUST FOR YOU.

While dealing with pain we for sure are very tempted at reaching “WHATEVER” else comes to satisfy our hunger, the burden, and the pain. But if we are serious enough we can reach God in just one uncomplicated way to open our eyes. I have read lots of articles, notes, formulas, books, motivational stuff, new age, all else. None say what I’ve found: TALK TO GOD.

Instead of putting away pain with money, food, sex, anything. TALK! (each one of this would naturally find its expresion in the apropiate time).
But You deserve Him. We deserve Him. He died for it. He is the God of the “Suddenly”. Death is over!!! LIFE is to be experience to the fullness of God.

Did you have a Vision for your Life? If not, God can give you one. LISTEN. Pain may not be avoided all at once, but we can still take advantage of it by holding closer to the more stronger person in all of existence. Him. God is so good, strong, and closer than our breath. Speaking to Him would be better and better. Our God is a good God, and pain would at the right time lost its grip. It would. Persevere! God is STRONGER. Yeah!

And remember: If isn’t fun without God, don’t do it. God is freaking Cool!!
