Love this verse!

Romans 5:2 MSG

And that's not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand-out in the wide open spaces of God's grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.

Awaken my heart, Awaken my soul.

A wise mentor of mine once mentioned to  me... ”Run Run Run as fast and far as you can.”
At the time and age i was in , confusion and anxiety attempted to flutter into my life. I knew that as soon as I bent my knees, and pleated to my Savior I'd begin to react positively.
I did not understand why I felt helpless, when it was all a healing process..
I now understand this.
God is not like man.
The enemy will attempt to bombard your mind with questions.
Make sure your attitude and lifestyle do not portray that you know better than God.
He began a good work in you.
Let us run with patience, pace is a requirement in order to get somewhere.
Jesus is the author and the finisher of our faith.
Keep running the race until the finish line. God is writing your story.
No longer do you have to fear or doubt. God has been completing what he begins in you.

I thank God for leading the path for.me to run to, I will continue this long journey...

Thats how it goes...

Read this quote, and it clearly explains itself.
Too often we are too stubborn to say 'sorry, I was wrong', Too often it seems like we hurt those closest to our hearts, and we let the most foolish things tear us apart. Im the type of girl that can be so hurt, but still look at you and smile. The type of girl that is willing to brighten up your day, even if i cant brighten my own.” <3

When its just you...

It happens to the best of us. Sometimes life just happens to get in the way. Its amazing how God speaks sometimes with the softest whispers. He is such a gentlemen that he caters to me as if i am a delicate flower.

I don't deserve such treatment as he has given me, countless times. But God knows me better than anyone, he knows that even gently he catches my attention.

Even when in my ignorance, i tend to think of solutions for everything occuring around me. I can' t.
While speaking to God he has not only been gently dealing with me, but healing me.

At the prime of my youth , i attempt to be all i can be but it is impossible to reason with myself without the consultation of my Savior first.

While remeniscing on his word I came across these verses, and it made my situation very much more realistic.

Ecclesiastes 7:10-14 MSG

Don't always be asking, "Where are the good old days?" Wise folks don't ask questions like that. Wisdom is better when it's paired with money, Especially if you get both while you're still living. Double protection: wisdom and wealth! Plus this bonus: Wisdom energizes its owner. Take a good look at God's work. Who could simplify and reduce Creation's curves and angles To a plain straight line? On a good day, enjoy yourself; On a bad day, examine your conscience. God arranges for both kinds of days So that we won't take anything for granted. Stay in Touch with Both Sides.”

Now with that said I indeed need God,more than he needs me. Anyday, everyday.

I feel as if his winds cater to me like the warmth of a blanket. Like him there is no one.

Tengo ganas de sér aire, y me respires para siempre...

Nadié me entiendé como tú, me sacas de mis cinco sentídos, y verte la cara me hace entender lo qué es vivír sin dudas...
Aun asi hasta mí madre reconocé el amor entre nosotros...

Un amor qué a madurado...
Un amor qué tiene ironiá...
Un amor qué se siente...
Un amor dado por Díos...

El día que me miraste a los ojos y
no teníamos idea de lo que vendría  y sentimos que las olas del mar se  afrentaban a nuestros pies...

Dios hizo el plan para nosotros y decidimos seguirlo... con miedo, pero la comprensión de uno al otro fué de parte de nuestro destino.

Te amo.

Me :)

My goal in life is when people meet me ,they see beyond my exterior and see something different. I want other to experience true love and happiness as I have. Jesus Christ is love. He has made me the person I am,and I will not rest until everyone I meet meets him. In this journey of life, I have accomplished everything because of him. I want more always. God is the greatest artist,and has mastered anything that exists. I love that I can smile because he has made me glad. In my walk, its beensomething of beauty. The more I seek him,the more interesting life becomes. To begin you must believe,and to believe and begin you must love. I will not rest until compassion overpowers cruelty and Justice becomes the essence of society.

Tears,chocolate pudding & my Love for Gods lessons.

Tears are the secretions of the glands that clean and lubricate the eyes. Lacrimation (from L. Lacrima, meaning tear) (also spelled lachrymation) may also be used in a medical or literary sense to refer to the production or shedding of tears. Strong emotions, such as sorrow or elation, along with irritation of eye, may lead to an increased production of tears, or crying. The process of yawning may also result in increased lacrimation.(Information taken from Wikipedia.com)

Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see Life with a clearer view again.” Alex Tan (Quote taken from thinkexist.com)

When I personally find myself crying ,it is because of either of these four reasons to "let my emotions out",I have "tears of joy"  or ,"tears of sorrow"...or I am touched by the love of God.

Now I know what most are thinking the first three should not matter,or even compare to the last reason. In no way am i doing so. All i am saying is that tears fall because of these reasons. Now it is what i make of them that helps me.

What do I mean by this,you ask?
Well, what I mean is that you can make something out of the outcome of tears.

For example in my case,my first reason to "let my emotions out". If I cry over that then what do I do after? I try to find a solution,such as fix the problem,or find peace,and meditate on the Lord and the blessings that he has given me.

For my second reason, tears of joy.
The outcome of tears of joy,would be. To reminisce in the happiness that has came upon me and cherish why I was crying these joyful tears. I have many reasons to be happy.

For the third reason, "tears of sorrow". Those are my least favorite kind, but they tend to fall from my eyes from time to time. Hey, you can't blame me...I am of the female species. :)

Now...comes my fourth reason. All three tie down to this last reason. No matter the reason of these tears. It all leads me to speaking freely to my God. I cherish the wonderful times i explain to him why am i crying and he never ceases to give me a reason to learn from it. That is the way God teaches me new things at times. When i cry!

Now most of you are probably thinking, "Wow...what a girl!" :D
But, hey its a way the Lord deals with me at times.

If i were to bottle up my tears I'd probably fill a high school swimming pool. Just kidding,I am not that emotional.
The point is whether it is tears, or chocolate pudding. There is a reason or story behind something or someone. If confused, ask God. He answers,listens,loves, and helps at all times.

If this didn't make sense I am so sorry! :)

Love, Jaz.

Lejos de tí...

Quedarme en silencio, es lo más dificíl. Me perdí, y fue lo peor. Me duele dejar de ser la que soy.
Me duele mi alma a ser el que tragarme mi orgullo e ir solo. Tengo gravemente pensándo mucho en el proceso. Lo quiero todo. Dios mismo se acercó a los dos. ¿Vale la pena la espera? ¿Puedes contar hasta 55 otra vez? Sé que la vida es un juego, pero vamos a ganar. Permite no dejar que el color de nuestro mundo a su vez simple en blanco y negro. Estoy esperando pacientemente tú llegada. El amor tiene vino a nuestras vidas. Estoy agradecida siempre por la sonrisa que siempre das. Yo no soy la más fácil de tratar, pero te preocupas de todos modos. Te amo.

My "daughter"

Today was one of the worst twenty minutes of pain i have ever experienced. I came home to find that my Dog was gone!!! Turns out her chain got loose and she escaped or some sort. My brother and Dad drove around the area looking for her,while i shouted her name to see if she'd come back. Twenty minutes later she came running towards me, i was so relieved i literally felt like my heart sank, i love her as if she were my own daughter. She is now safe and sound at home...and GROUNDED! LOL
 Here are some photos of my mischevous puppy, Leylah "Little Bombs" Apodaca.

I want to be afraid,but for some reason I'm peaceful. I can't just worry and cry, I smile in the midst of adversity. Thoughts ponder my head to want to wonder,whats going to happen next. Instead a cheerfulness comes upon me. All I know is I am patiently waiting as to what is going to happen. Will I ever see the end result?

Touched my heart...

My mind opened up after reading this,made me realize a lot !

Matthew 5:8-9, 11-14 MSG "You're blessed when you get your inside world-your mind and heart-put right. Then you can see God in the outside world. "You're blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That's when you discover who you really are, and your place in God's family. "Not only that-count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens-give a cheer, even!-for though they don't like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble. "Let me tell you why you are here. You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You've lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage. "Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.

Awaken by a beautiful love...

Hello everyone,
This morning I was awaken by a soft voice, I listened. I love that my God is a gentleman and will never mistreat me,with the simplest measures he captivates my attention. Well mannered is our father,he knows how to put a smile on my face. In my dreams I think and wonder of heaven,and what a priviledge it would be to one day be face to face with our creator. With that said,this morning I also received my "Daily Bible Verse" from my Daily App on my cellphone...it was 1 corinthians 2:9 .
I decided to read the full chapter and wow,am I amazed. The whole chapter is preety self explanitory! :)
If you do read it,i recommend you reading the message version. If you dont have a hands on message bible there are several online options you may choose from,my favorite happens to be Biblegateway.com. You can read it in any version,language etc.
Back to the chapter I have read, one part in particular has stood out :)
"1 Corinthians 2:8-13 MSG

The experts of our day haven't a clue about what this eternal plan is. If they had, they wouldn't have killed the Master of the God-designed life on a cross. That's why we have this Scripture text: No one's ever seen or heard anything like this, Never so much as imagined anything quite like it-What God has arranged for those who love him. But you've seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you. Who ever knows what you're thinking and planning except you yourself? The same with God-except that he not only knows what he's thinking, but he lets us in on it. God offers a full report on the gifts of life and salvation that he is giving us. We don't have to rely on the world's guesses and opinions. We didn't learn this by reading books or going to school; we learned it from God, who taught us person-to-person through Jesus, and we're passing it on to you in the same firsthand, personal way."

Our God is so well mannered and I hope to one day see his face. My love for him will never be taken.

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
- Jaz

Has anyone ever experienced the "superheroe" syndrom in life? At this young age, i've experienced it before. You know when the prayers start
becoming petitions, rather than a conversation with God, they become a list of "wants, and "ill you's"?
You know what i mean, the "Will you help me with this God?" type of prayers...or even the mindset of being so involved in church and/or in your own personal life that you begin to think and act as if you can handle things on your own, at your own pace.

If experiencing that ,there should come a time that you should slow down and realize, YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN LIFE. Truth is no matter what situation surpasses, God knows what will and is to come. Before any of us were created he planned out our lives and knew what our faults would be. There is nothing you can accomplish without God, he is the provider that provides you with the strength to do so.

When you begin to feel a sort of selfish feeling, it is normal because we are human and our flesh often leads us to decisions that can harm us. But you have to recognize the selfishness and the fact that you need your God ,and if you do that is a good sign, a great one at that! Gods guidance is the best you will ever have, but one should always cherish this.

As often as we might think,that we cannt do something, the fact of the matter is God has great faith in us, more than we have in ourselves. He sees the good in us, the greatness in us because we were made to follow his steps. We are to be Christ-like.

When first making a decision to be baptized under Jesus Christ , i made a pact to always place him first in my life. At the tender age of 14 i made that decision and i am a living testimony of a God fearing person. Its the tough times,and selfish moments that God placed in my life who made me who i Am today. I have learned to Trust in God and rely on his love and under his authority.
He has the final say in life, not man.
Psalm 55:22 (The Message)

22-23 Pile your troubles on God's shoulders—
he'll carry your load, he'll help you out.
He'll never let good people
topple into ruin.
But you, God, will throw the others
into a muddy bog,
Cut the lifespan of assassins
and traitors in half.

And I trust in you.

Forgiveness,Trust,Justice,Love,Faithfullness,Desire,Dreams, Salvation,Divine Purpose....The list can go on and on about how i describe my God.

The point is he is a just and fair God, one should fear only him! He is jealous for his child, and if you have been called and are in anyway dealing with discouragement, selfishness, The "Superheroe" syndrom ...STOP AND THINK LONG AND HARD. He hears our every thought before we think it. He loves us so....and as long as God grants me the gif of life i will live to serve him. Our God is great,holy and mighty. Theres nothing i want more than to live by his side. You are all beautiful,let his love shine through you each day.

Before i conclude my rather long ramblings, i end with my favorite verse...the verse that is engraved in my heart and thoughts whenever i think of his mercy and grace.

Philippians 3:10 (The Message)

10-11I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself. If there was any way to get in on the resurrection from the dead, I wanted to do it.

Love and happiness, Jazapo

With peace comes happiness.

According to society, with happiness comes wealth. Thank goodness i serve the creator of heaven and the earth, and not the creator of money and riches. I have learned throughout my walk of God that life isn't at all at ease, especially with the certain status of sufferage throughout the world many claim to say "God is coming". In my opinion, that saying I have heard it my whole life. Our God has been indeed "coming" all I know is that half the world is suffering, and here we are more ready than ever to serve beautiful people. If you are dealing with doubt, and insecurity, God has placed in you bravery and courage! I encourage you to be the person God designed you to be. If stumbling and logically knowning you will never be who God claims you to be you are living in doubt. I feel it in my heart, that God has called many young and elder to be an example, to save someone. The thing is, within these trials God has rose up a generation of worshipers. Those who fear God and him alone, not this culture, not the "man". Stand strong on your beliefs, you can do anything you want to. All it takes is courage, guidance from God and Action!

Just a thought...not a statement.

Prayers out to Japan ! xoxo

Where are the motivated?

Its come to my attention,that so many Christian young people have forgot the meaning of living a life of righteousness. As a kid growing up in the church I comstantly heard preachers,sunday school teachers,youth leaders etc. have always emphasized on inspiring us to be like Jesus,and seek his kingdom first over our own personal intentions and opinions. It disturbs me that some placed in leadership or other positions have lost the importance of the dinamics of being a Christian, a Christ follower, a loving person at that. I understand where modernism takes place and todays society tends to influence people,but lets not forget there is a lost soul out there, who maybe you can be their only hope. Instead there are meetings and conferences and gatherings in repetition of things youth already know and understand. Its just a thought,a mere opinion you can say, but its my understanding of today. As of now I will continue to seek righteousness and attempt to bring as many lost as close to God as I can.
These passages I read really impacted me.

"Quit your worship charades. I can't stand your trivial religious games: Monthly conferences, weekly Sabbaths, special meetings—meetings, meetings, meetings—I can't stand one more! Meetings for this, meetings for that. I hate them! You've worn me out! I'm sick of your religion, religion, religion, while you go right on sinning. When you put on your next prayer-performance, I'll be looking the other way. No matter how long or loud or often you pray, I'll not be listening. And do you know why? Because you've been tearing people to pieces, and your hands are bloody. Go home and wash up. Clean up your act. Sweep your lives clean of your evildoings so I don't have to look at them any longer. Say no to wrong. Learn to do good. Work for justice. Help the down-and-out. Stand up for the homeless. Go to bat for the defenseless. " Isaiah 1:16-17 (The Message) 13-17

"I can't stand your religious meetings. I'm fed up with your conferences and conventions. I want nothing to do with your religion projects, your pretentious slogans and goals. I'm sick of your fund-raising schemes, your public relations and image making. I've had all I can take of your noisy ego-music. When was the last time you sang to me? Do you know what I want? I want justice—oceans of it. I want fairness—rivers of it. That's what I want. That's all I want."Amos 5:21-24 (The Message) 21-24

Thank you for reading, God bless :)
