¡Gloria demos al nombre de Dios!

I am so very grateful to be in a land where I am free to read the Word! I could read Exodus everyday and the fact that I have been blessed enough to read and understand it in Spanish is absolutely amazing! Don’t ever take your Word for granted! Not everyone is as fortunate as we are!
And something that stuck out to me while reading the other day was, “Entonces pusieron sobre ellos comisarios de tributos que los molestasen con sus cargas… Pero cuanto más los oprimían, tanto más se multiplicaban y crecían, de manera que los egipcios temían a los hijos de Israel.” Éxodo 1:11-12, RVR 1960. The KJV reads, “Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens… But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.”
Wow!!! The harsher the cause, the greater the effect. No matter what affliction we are put through, we are children of God and we will never stop growing. It IS an act of God, after all. The children of Israel didn’t suffer for nothing! God always knows what He’s doing (of course)! Be it a pain to the world. That is alright because it will be ALL GLORY to God. Go read your Bible! It is wonderful!

God Is So Good (A Letter)

You are good

You are good

You are good

And Your mercy is forever…

Dear God,

I am such a sinner. I don’t know why You love me. I don’t know why You sent Your Son to die for people who are stuck in sin- people like me. I don’t know why You love me SO MUCH. You are in love with me. Me, who didn’t do anything to deserve Your love. Me, who has done nothing but constantly fail You. Me, who knows what is right then does the opposite, regretting it later but then going back to it again. Me. A sinner. I don’t know why You keep forgiving me. I don’t know why You keep giving me chances. I don’t understand Your love but I am thankful for Your love. So thankful. Without Your love, I would not be able to write this letter. Without Your love, I would not be where I am in my life right now. Without Your love, I would be headed to destruction definitely. I can’t understand it. I can’t understand You. I can’t even begin to understand the fullness of Your love. You love me and are in love with me. I don’t know why. I love You and I am in love with You. There are reasons upon reasons for that. You are so worthy and faithful and kind and compassionate and You understand every little thing we do. You see our hearts… LORD, I love You. I don’t know why You love me but I am grateful for Your love.

Love Always,

Hija
