"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

The sound of Your voice.

"The sound of Your voice."

The following text was shared with me, so I share it too... "The sound of Your voice."

Sweet Lord, I wait for the sound of Your voice as it gently, softly whispers through the stillness, as it lingers in the quietness, as it fills the air around me. It enters my heart, filling every vacuum and flooding my mind with light and love and warmth. I hear it, and I am renewed, refreshed, refilled and happy. Hearing Your voice solves everything. It melts me. It changes me. It makes me more like You.

Your voice is what I live for. I wait for it, I feed on it, I crave it, I want it. Your voice created everything; it is the beginning and the end of all things. Your voice is the power behind the rotation of Heaven and Earth. Your voice is so great and majestic that it can be felt in all creations, yet can only be heard in the quiet and the stillness. Your voice is made for all the world to hear and witness, yet delights to speak to the individual. How priceless and wonderful is Your voice that speaks into our hearts and into our minds, and makes known the secrets of my own heart. You speak to me as a demonstration of Your love for me. Your voice is the very love of the One who made us all. Your voice is the heart of God speaking to me.

Today´s Prayer.

Today´s Prayer.

The following Bible Verse is full of wisdom. It begins like this..."But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in our own body -the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies." (Corinthians 4:7-10) Let us pray...

Dear Heavenly Father and Lord,

I pray for all those people who are sick, misjudged, misunderstood, homeless, in financial needs, with physical and/or mental illness, suffering emotional depression, with lack of self-esteem, away from home in another land, lost their home for one reason or another, lost their dear loved ones, or they are hurting in one way or another.

Please, dear Heavenly Father and Almighty Lord, embrace them into Your loving arms, make them feel Your unconditional love, strength, protection and grant them Your Peace, the way only You and You alone can give. Please, heal them in places where healing is needed; grant them comfort and strength to keep righteous lives going on Your mighty way, and let them feel Your unique touch, love and joy in such a way that they will never feel alone or sad again.

Dear Father and Lord, we need Your power today and every day. We know that we can´t win without Your help; we can´t make it on our own. We need You forever, Lord.

Thank You for Your protection in so many ways that we don´t realize it. Sometimes, we don´t even know that You have protected us, because we don´t see what could have happened if You haven´t prevented it. So we thank You for all Your blessings, and we praise You forever.

In Jesus´most Holy Name, we ask these things and pray. AMEN.

"Change one inch at a time."

"Change one inch at at time."

These inspirational words have been shared with me...

One little inch that you can improve each day will be the key for your success. Go ahead, and make that difference!! Something wonderful happens: the feeling and experience of achievement. Every inch is a real winner. To achieve great things require a modest effort repeated again and again. One little inch after another, and it could make a major positive impact: the wondrous miracle of your life. Start right now, by improving one little inch, and you are on your way to change the world, to transform your own world for the better.

God´s love is everwhere!! If we take the time to look around us, birds, flowers, mother nature. We do not have to look too far to see the miracles of life. Let life come!! The richness of life is all around you. Drop your shallow pretenses and find in the Angels of God whisper good news, after all!! There are new wisdom for you to discover. Dive into your deepest feelings. The message is surely filled with rich meaning to teach you, a dance of profound proportions, the power to change yourself for the better. Observe and explore all that is happening in your world. God is your Savior and the source of your existence. You lovingly watch the motion, listen to the music, and take note of how it makes you feel much better with yourself. Let life work its magic on you!!

Best Regards,

Starry Dawn.

"Surrender to God´s feet."

"Surrender to God´s feet."

Exploring yourself into your heart and discover something brand new: the new you...

What is it in your heart?? What do you have in mind?? Are you afraid about what you are about to discover??... Some of this message was shared with me by a dear Christian friend...

Surrender is a word that most people don´t like to hear and find it difficult to do, because something about human nature still wants to be in control. We need the light of knowing, in order to assure us that we are still safe. Although, fear of the unknown stops us from going as we walk into the tunnel to the unknown of darkness. Faith and trust in God should enter into the picture, because of all the promises God made to us. Unless we truly believe in His promises with our hearts, we won´t ever surrender completely to God. God wants all of you, not just little pieces.

The supreme example of self-surrender is Jesus. The night before His crucifixion, Jesus surrendered Himself to God´s plan. He prayed, "Father, everything is possible for You. Please, take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want Your will, not mine." (Mark 14:36)
God´s will be done in all circumstances, no matter what we do. This level of maturity does not come so easily.
When you walk through the storm, hold your head up high, and don´t be afraid of the dark. At the end of the storm is a golden sky.

Best Regards,
Starry Dawn.

"Keep your minds active and healthy."

"Keep your minds active and healthy."

These inspirational words may help you find the way in your life.
I find the following Bible Verse filled with great wisdom. It says...

"...Brothers and Sisters in Christ, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and our Father, God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

When I grew older, I realized how important that Bible Verse would be to me. We have to train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. God has given us the keys to have a peaceful mind, but we have to be willing to obey it. We must do all we could to protect our minds from destructive habits or evil inputs. We must keep our minds protected, because they could really turn into a dreadful battlefield; and the devil works inside one´s mind, and takes advantage of those vulnerable ones. So, be on the alert.

One area of refocusing our minds is in the area of our emotions. At times, our minds could become bombarded with anger, fear, frustration, depression or hopelessness. You see, as long as we live in an imperfect world, we shall be faced with these challenges. However, in those dreadful moments of self-doubts, we must decide and focus our attention in what we want to become, either good or bad or nothing at all. We should pray to the Lord for His help at that point. We don´t have to stay or dwell on bad state of minds that hurt us. We should indeed, allow ourselves to change for the better and for our own goodness. We are free to choose from good or wrong with a genuine goodwill. Christ only shows us the right way to go in our lives.


The Bible tells us words of wisdom about these reflections: "A Living Hope." (Peter 1:3-7, 12)

"Let us give thanks to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!! Because of His great mercy, He gave us new life by raising Jesus Christ from death. This fills us with a living hope, and so we look forward to possessing the rich blessings that God keeps for His people. He keeps them for you in Heaven, where they cannot decay or spoil or fade away. They are for you, who through faith are kept safe by God´s power for the salvation which is ready to be revealed at the end of time. Be glad about this, even though it may now be necessary for you to be sad for a while because of the many kinds of trials you suffer. Their purpose is to prove that your faith is genuine. Even gold, which can be destroyed, is tested by fire; and so your faith, which is much more precious than gold, must also be tested, so that it may endure. Then, you will receive praise and glory and honor on the Day when Jesus Christ is revealed."

"...God revealed to these prophets that their work was not for their own benefit, but for yours, as they spoke about those things which you have now heard from the messengers for the Lord who announced the Good News by the power of the Holy Spirit sent from Heaven."
If each of us plant good seeds in this world, we shall collect great harvest after all.

Thank you in advance for reading and for sharing with me this day!!
God bless!!

"Fill your life with positive actions."

"Fill your life with meaningful and positive actions."

I believe that God speaks to our hearts, as we listen to Him. Seek, and you´ll find Him.

Sometimes, it requires us to pray -the way to communicate with God- and to read His words of wisdom in the Holy Bible. I am excited about learning more of this wonderful experience that I have discovered within my inner self: a marvelous world of poetry, stories and inspirational reflections that I truly enjoy sharing with others. I believe that God uses instruments to communicate with people in so many different ways. So, open your heart for Jesus, slow down and listen or read inspirational messages that are coming to you. The Lord may knock at the door of your heart. Then, open up and let Jesus come into your life. You may be surprised at what the Lord has to say to you...

This day, I would like to write about the outstanding influence that we have in ourselves। We may decide what we want to do with our lives, whether we want to become somebody worth it or nothing at all. Time is useful only while we are alive. Time begins to running short as we age. In other words, we should allow ourselves to change for the better while we can do it, and the time is now. Fill your life with meaningful and positive actions, instead of dwelling in negative or destructive thoughts. You see, no matter what we do, we cannot change the number of hours that are gone in the day. Time is running out for each and everyone. We are unable to stop the time from going. Yet, you have a great impact and power over what goes into those hours, and what comes out from them. So, fill the hours with positive purposes, and the passing of time will work in your favor. Fill your day with meaning, with creativity, with goodness, joy and love; and each day will leave behind lasting values for your own world. Allign your efforts more closely with your true purpose, and you´ll find that those efforts quickly become much more effective.

Choose to put more meaning in each moment in your life, and you´ll find a sense of fulfillment in your heart। Begin to fill the world with your own unique beauty, store your awards and go beyond the limits of time। Therefore, your own world will be filled with meaningful and positive actions. Moreover, when conditions change for the worse, there is no need to despair or give up, for you have the ability to find a new starting point, from which you can raise yourself to higher levels of achievement. There is always a way to get where you have chosen to go. Each challenge gives you new ways to add value and worth to your dreams. Let us become an example of life for others to follow in the same path of a righteous life. Choose what you want to become and pursue your goals until you´ll achieve them. If there is life, there is always a new starting point.Fill your life with meaningful and positive actions. The Lord will show us the way...

Thank you for reading and sharing with me this day!!
God bless!!

"The Lord is our Shepherd."

"The Lord is our Shepherd."

These inspirational words may help you find the way in your life.
When we feel weary or blue, or when we feel that the world is shutting on us, or everything goes wrong in whatever we do, or when we feel lonely and sad, please remember that the Lord is by your side at all times and in all circumstances. You are not alone, Jesus is the best friend that you may find in your life. Just call His name in prayers, and Jesus will come to your emotional rescue anywhere you may be, for God is everywhere. Put all your worries and troubles to God´s feet, and release yourself of all burdens. You don´t have to carry your own cross by yourself.

Your walking in this world will become lighter, if you begin to practice these spiritual exercises.
It is rewarding and refreshing to read the wisdom of Bible Verses, you´ll begin to feel that you become a brand new person. The Lord´s amazing grace will work on you for sure.
One of my favourite psalms is the number 23: "The Lord is our Shepherd." It says...

"The Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything I need. He lets me rest in fields of green grass and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water. He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths, as He promised. Even if I go through the deepest darkness, I shall not be afraid, Lord, for You are with me. Your shepherd´s rod and staff protect me. You prepare a banquet for me, where all my enemies can see me; You welcome me as an honored guest and fill my cup to the brim. I know that your goodness and love will be with me all my life; and Your house will be my home as long as I live."

Let us pray for a moment with our silent prayers, giving thanks to our dear Lord for the gift of life and for the many blessings He grants to us..

Dear Heavenly Father and Lord,

Thank You for this brand new day that You are giving to us, for being with us this day and for the many blessings You grant to us!! We are sorry, sweet Lord, that we have said, thought or done things that were not pleasing You. We ask You for forgiveness. Grant us Lord, Your strength and peace that pass all understanding, and only You and You alone can give.
Give us healings, where there is mental or physical illness. Give us a happy heart to show others our inner wealth. Inside our heart, it is only You, Lord, shining through like a glowing beam over a colorful rainbow. Please, Father, be with us in all circumstances, protect us. We love You and need You, Almighty Heavenly Father. The glory is all Yours. We trust You and believe in You, dear Lord Jesus Christ. You are our Savior, our fortress and our rock of salvation. Please, show us the way with the light of the Holy Spirit. Lord, give us a joyful heart, where there is hurting somehow. Grant us Your unconditional love, touch our hearts with Your loving arms and lead us into Eternity, sweet Lord, if that is Your will. God´s will be done in all circumstances. Your Heavenly love will embrace us until the end of time, as You promise.
Lord, make us an instrument of Your peace. Use us as Your messengers the way it pleases You, Father. As we now, come to You with our quiet personal prayers, we ask that You will listen to our needs, for You read our minds and know our hearts before we do.
Thank You, Lord, for being with us at all times and for the gift of life You grant to us!!
In Jesus´most precious and Holy Name, we pray. AMEN.

Thank you in advance for sharing with me today!!

"Do you know where you are going to??..."

"Do you know where you are going to??..."

Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior is waiting for you at the door of your heart.
Would you invite Him to come in and take control of your life??...
God has an amazing plan for your life.
Do you know where you are going to??...
Do you know the things that life is showing you??
Where are you going to?? Do you know??...

We know that the fruits of the spirit -our inner wealth- are:
Hope, faith, kindness, love, peace, humility, patience, tolerance, compassion, gratefulness, gratitude, joy, meekness (a humble heart), the gift of giving to the ones in need, and so on...
We also know that the qualities of the character -our inner wealth- are:
Honesty, respect, responsibility, commitment, loyalty, trustworthiness, ethics, unselfishness, hardworking, cleanliness, self-assurance, control of oneself, and so on...
These are just a few examples to begin with.

Are we being good fruits for our Lord today??...
Are the qualities of our character blend well with the fruits of the spirit??
Ask youself that question!!...
Christian lives should be filled with good deeds.
"We shall know them by their fruits." Jesus Christ said in this Bible Verse. (Matthew 7:16)

Let us now, self-examine our own conscious within our inner self and see if the fruits of the spirit blend well with the qualities of the character. So, if the answer is yes, we are in good balance with our own self and with the principles of a Christian life. Trust in God in all circumstances, for He is so good all the time. I believe that God is in control of all things, and He has a wonderful plan for our lives. Count your blessings one by one, not your troubles. Find joy and peace in your heart that will make you grow stronger. Strength and peace come first from within the spirit.
Begin your day thinking in positive thoughts that will bring a positive attitude inside yourself.
Think in beautiful things that elevate your inner spirit. Don´t think in negative thoughts, because they will bring negative feelings in your incoming day. Learn how to smile more often. Do healthy things to enhance your life at the fullest!! Learn how to be kind with others, so you will please yourself by doing these things. If you do these little spiritual exercises on daily basis, you will begin to feel wonderful changes inside your living being.
It is so important to consider the way you carry yourself at your best, and project your own image to others. So, this is the way how people may see your worth as a whole person.
Achievement is the goal to pursue for a successful life.

Prayer is a wonderful way of communication with God. Talk to the Lord in prayers, confess to Him what is wrong with you that may offend Him, repent with a truthful heart, ask Him for forgiveness of your sins, ask for reconciliation with the Lord and with your own self, which is so important, and promise to correct the wrong doings and make it better for the next day. Improve yourself on daily basis, become a better person for you and for others in your life.
So, in this way, the slow process of learning in our lifetime will make us a bit more perfect each day to the eyes of God and to the eyes of the people in our world.

Let us become an example of life for others to follow in the same path of a righteous Christian life. Praise the Lord in all circumstances, either good or bad!! We are His children.

Thank you in advance for reading and for sharing with me this day!!
Have a blessed day in God´s glorious vineyard!!

Welcome to My Blog:
"Find the Way in Your Life!!"

Welcome to a brand new day to one and all!!...
My soul, an expression of virtue, the soothing music of the field, a balm in a raging deep blue sea, and the joy brought by the morning herald, would like to share with you, the good news of this day. Writing is the language of my heart, so that I would let my inner muse go and elevate one´s spirit to another dimension.

In the morning, I walk out of the house to my garden of plants, and pray in the open air gazing at the sky... Absorbing the sunlight, inhaling God´s presence and the beauty of the new day, so I claim the blessings of the incoming hours. I give thanks to God for the gift of life in all circumstances. Then, I come back home and start writing deep expressions of my soul. When I do this, I feel God´s presence in a very palpable way. God created me in this way. Writing is my prayer language, my way of communication to the world, and the language of my spirit.
The Lord shows me the way in all I do. He is an amazing Lord, so I follow Him!!
I have found the way in my life. Praise the Lord!!

Please, take some of your precious time, sit back, relax, enjoy reading and basking in the beauty of inspirational reflections, food for thoughts and food for the spirit.
May you hear God´s voice in your heart, know His touch in your life, and feel His unconditional love each day. May the grace and peace of our precious and Holy Lord, Jesus Christ, our Savior be with you and with your beloved ones always.

Thank you in advance for sharing with me this day!!
God bless!!
