Seek The Truth

by Giselle Aguiar, Award-Winning, Christian Author

Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me," and "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 14:2; 3:16-17)

TGIF – but not for the reason you think

Thank God It’s Friday and I worked all week! What an awesome feeling! I really feel like I’m being productive and that I’m an asset to this company.

I’m redesiging their website. I’ve set them up on LinkedIn, Twitter and with a blog on WordPress. I’m organizing a seminar in Jan. And once everything is set up, I’ll be helping with setting appointments for the advisors.

I had lunch this week with a former co-worker from Minico. She works on 46th St. and Broadway and I’m on 40th St. and Camelback. We met at the Big Apple on Van Buren – good BBQ.

I also discovered the Havana Cafe on 44th with as close as I can get to Puertorican food.

Yay! I’ll soon be able to afford to out once in a while!

I took a nice walk at lunchtime on Wed. down by the canal all the way to 32nd St. Unfortunately, I was wearing black pants and they got all dusty. I visited with the ducks and watched a flock of parrots in the trees.

I have an awesome view from our 4th floor offices. Check out these pix.

Have a great weekend and God Bless!

Thank you, Lord for running water

There but for the Grace of God go I.

English: Picture taken by me on Mona Island, P...

Mona Island, Puerto Rico in the Mona Passage between PR & Dominican Republic is a hot zone for earthquakes. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

That’s what I think when I watch the coverage of the devastation in Haiti. The same fault line that caused this 7.0 quake also runs under the island of Puerto Rico, one island to the east.

I felt several tremors when I lived there. It’s disconcerting to feel the floor below you sway. I can’t imagine what the Haitians went through. I see them as my former Caribbean neighbors (even if I never did get to visit that island). In Miami, I met many Haitian-Americans and my heart goes out to them as they wait to hear about their family and friends back in Haiti.

We take simple things for granted – running water, drinkable water, toilets, electricity, food, clean clothes, phones, a warm bed, a solid roof over our heads, a place to call home.

We should live in an attitude of gratitude. Be grateful for the little things starting with each new day when we wake up.

We are blessed and we need to let God know that we are grateful as often as possible.

Do not take anything for granted. We are blessed because God chooses to bless us.

For what is seen is temporary

Father God, I know that you are aware of the suffering in Haiti and I pray that any roadblocks that may be hindering help from getting to where it’s needed be torn down. I pray that doctors and medicine, food and water get there quickly and that good plans arise to start rebuilding. Let the people there feel your loving hands. I thank you Lord, for the organizations that were already there and the ones that are sending more help. Lord, I am so grateful for everything that I have. Please let me live in an attitude of gratitude. This I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Be thankful in all circumstances

This entry is part 4 of 14 in the series God the Provider

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

This was last Sunday’s message at church. This is tough sometimes, but we have to do it. In whatever is going on, find something to be grateful for. Find the positive. Kind of like a Pollyanna.

Be grateful you’re alive, relatively healthy, have a roof over your head, a car to drive, food to eat ( no matter how you get it) and that Jesus loves you no matter what you do or how you act. He forgives you. God loves  you so much that he gave up His Son for you.

We can all find something to be thankful for all the time.

God bless
