When we had the funeral for our nephew, Anthony, I found myself observing the relatives from far, and wide.  I was hit with an undeniable truth: Without God in your life…there is no peace! Grief is a natural process, but some grieve without hope…others grieve, but know they can trust God for better days.

I wrote the following poem years ago for a contest I entered. I did not win that contest, but I did get to read the poem, and thus share what Jesus has done in my life! In the end…that was my real goal for entering. I share it now with you. -anita

2To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; 3To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; 4To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. 5A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: 6To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. 7The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. 8My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:” -Proverbs 1:2-8

I want to re-cap Pastor’s sermon yesterday. It was a reminder to all of us that have been rescued by God,  that we ought not to only bask in His Comfort…but remember he saved us so we could help others find their way to Him!

Do you ever feel that all the things you do for the Lord aren’t making a difference? Since there is no visible evidence that a change has come about from all your efforts to change the world for Jesus…you get discouraged and want to quit? I find myself in that place quite often.

Words Unto The Lord

by Anita Mondragon
“And it shall come to pass, that BEFORE they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”  Isaiah 65:24

A few years back, our family was going through some very hard financial times.  We were being spiritually attacked on all sides from the enemy, and it seemed he would not let up on us for a moment.  I wrote a series of ‘words unto the Lord’ at that time.  This is the second one of that series.

1 How long oh Lord will the riches of the world be held in the hands of those whose hearts are far from you?

2 Rain down your blessings upon me oh Lord that I may be a blessing to others.
