“PEACE… BE STILL!”

By Anita Mondragon

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


LEARN YOUR LESSON!

By Anita Mondragon
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

THE WORST (HELL) VS THE BEST (HEAVEN)…

By Anita Mondragon
Many folks say they are a Christian.  They go to church.  They sing in the congregation or the choir.  They are on the board of Elders.  Maybe they hold the title of Deacon, Usher, Teacher, or even Pastor.  They look holy.  They “talk the talk”…some of them even “walk the walk.” …. Read more…


JESUS…THE HOPE OF THE WORLD!

By Anita Mondragon
 
Have you watched the news lately?  The world is at war.  Not only out-and-out war with one nation against another…but people in general are at war with their neighbors, friends, spouses, and family! Courts are full of divorce cases, domestic abuse, civil suites, assault, theft, rape, murder.  Fights springing up out of nowhere over petty things, ending up in murder.  Abuse of every kind-alcohol, drug, sexual, physical, verbal-all on the rise.  The world, and I’m talking about those that do not have the Hope of Jesus, is drenched in anger…rage.  They are living for the moment, casting up their dirt and mire, wallowing in self pleasures of today because they have no hope of a better tomorrow.

CHRISTIANS ARE TO BE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS!

By Anita Mondragon
Some of us believe that if we are busy in the church, doing God’s work, we are being “good” Christians.  But most of us are so heavenly minded, that we’re no earthly good!  Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel” …not stay within the four walls of the church and preach to each other!
