God, IN you!

By Anita Mondragon

At times, we of the lower middle class look at those more financially fortunate than ourselves, and envy what they have.

We wish our house was larger, our car newer, our bank account more substantial.  Even Christians find themselves always wishing for more.  It is a malady of the human spirit.  We never seem to be satisfied!

STOP LABELING!!

By Anita Mondragon

Has there ever been a time in your life that you’ve felt you’re “too far gone” for God’s love to reach you?  Perhaps you’ve committed a heinous crime against society…rape, murder, theft, or the like, and now you’re in prison.  Maybe it was a sin against your spouse…an affair.  Perhaps you’re an addict of drugs or alcohol.  Maybe you belong to God, you’re saved, born-again…a Believer, but you’ve strayed far from home, wallowed in the sinful life you lived before you come to know the Savior, and now you wonder if God’s mercy and grace will stoop to hear your prayers asking for forgiveness.

When God looks at us, it’s through eyes of love.  He doesn’t label us.

GOD WILL MAKE A WAY…

By Anita Mondragon
 found something my husband wrote a long time ago.  It was hidden in a drawer…deep within the pages of a note-book.  When I read it…I thought about the following verses in Isaiah.  Take a look—then, take heart!  God WILL make a way…through, and out of whatever predicament you find yourself in! -anita

LOST

By Anita Mondragon

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”  Matthew 11:28

 

*****************

In 2005, a friend of mine challenged me to write poetry. Up to that time, I had only written stories for my grandchildren.  We argued back and forth as to my abilities to write something other than children’s stories.  That very night, God came to me and woke me from a dead sleep.  He said: “Get up…and write this NOW!”  I wrote the following on the back of an envelope, using only a night-light. -anita

GET READY TO RUMBLE!

By Anita Mondragon

 Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. -Genesis 32:24

SOPHIA AND THE BLUE RIBBON

By Anita Mondragon

“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.”  Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came’; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. “Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation.”  Matthew 12:43-45

 

My dad used many illustrations in his sermons; the following story was based on one of these illustrations, and I  re-wrote it for my grandchildren in a way that they could understand. 

You may want to read it to your children and explain how Jesus can wash us clean and save our souls! -anita

EDEN

By Anita Mondragon

Genesis 3:14-15

The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life; And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
