YOUR PRESENCE

By Anita Mondragon
Where can I go from Your Spirit?  Or where can I flee from Your  presence?  If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.  If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,…even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.  Psalms 139:7-10

PRAISE TO THE CREATOR!

By Anita Mondragon
 
I wrote the following poem one day while on a fishing trip in the mountains with my husband.  Not sure if I’ve ever shared it before…but I’m just having a thankful day. So grateful for all of God’s love and mercy towards me…including all the beauty He supplies every day if I’ll just take the time to stop and look…. -anita

THE TENTH…OR, TITHE

By Anita Mondragon

When folks hear the word, ‘Tithe’, they usually turn the volume down.  Why is that?  Because no one wants to give their hard-earned money away…not to anyone, especially to God!

The thing that most Christians fail to realize is that God DOES NOT, I repeat…DOES NOT NEED your money!  He just wants your obedience.  He wants us to depend upon Him for our needs.

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
