"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.

Dear Lord,
Let us all pray the Lord´s Prayer today for the many blessings of a brand new day and the incoming hours that You are giving to us, if that is God´s will...

"Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Yours is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory, forever and ever. AMEN."

Dear Lord, continue to reveal the power of Your love through our vessels. Repeat after me: Yes!! I belong to God. I mean it. I do love God. I am united with the Lord. He is my source of existence and Savior. I am nothing without Him, but dust in the wind. He keeps me functioning every single day. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I have been chosen and appointed to bear fruits. I am the branch of the true vine, a channel of His life. I am complete with Christ. I am God´s workmanship. I am confident that the good works God has begun in me will be perfected. I have been redeemed and forgiven. I have been adopted as God´s child. I belong to God.

Thank You, Heavenly Father for showing us Your unconditional love, compassion and mercy, and for all Your blessings in our lives!! Thank You for the gift of Your love that keeps shining through our vessels!!

Jesus said: "Peace be with you. My peace, I give you..."

May God bless your life with His wisdom and be fruitful in everything you do.

Friends are the sunshine of life.

To all readers,

Thanks for visiting my blogs, and for brightening my world with the warmth of your kind friendship!!

In God´s Garden,

Starry Dawn.

Talking to God in Prayers. (1)

Talking to God in Prayers. (1)

Jesus said that when two or more are gathered together in His Name, He will be among them to help with their requests in prayers. In times of discouragement, let God be your encouragement. You are the rock of salvation, our Savior and our precious Redeemer. We all need You, Lord. We can´t really make it on our own. Send healing rain, Father. Our heavy loads, daily storms of life, ordeals, trials and tribulations, the unbearable pain, sores, sorrows, burdens and all kind of life´s blows, we cannot carry them alone on our shoulders without You, sweet Lord and Father. We come to You this day as Your humble servants to find a quiet moment in solitude with You, Lord to pray for healings. As we say our silent prayers, we know that You already know what our hearts hold and what our bodies need, in all circumstances before we do.

You are a Mighty Healer, the Greatest Physician and our precious Redeemer, and You can do it all with Your unconditional love full of grace. We are instruments of God, branches of Christ, we have been chosen to bear fruits. We´ll be seated with Jesus in the Heavenly Realm, if that is His will. You are the living God, the source of life, the bottomless well from which springwater overflows, the vineyard that makes our blood vessels exist and the true meaning of our existence, dear Lord.

Please, pour Your heartfelt blessings into our lives, give us strength, comfort, healings, complete cure and restore us to a whole well-being again. We trust You, Lord. We know that You can do it, if that is Your will. We put all our confidence in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Please, take us all to a safe haven, for what You are our protector and our strong defence, our fortress and our rock of salvation. Let us live in Your Sanctuary all our lives, and let us find safety under Your Heavenly Wings.

Thank You, sweet Jesus, for the many blessings that we receive from You on daily basis!! Thank You, Lord for listening to our prayers!! Thank You, for this brand new day that You are giving to us!! You are the Lord of mercy, compassion and peace. We are nothing but dust in the wind without You, Father. We also know that You read our hearts and minds before we even realize about our needs. We serve an awesome God!!

We turn our prayers into Your loving arms and hands and mighty care. We also surrender under Your feet, sweet Master. As we find a quiet moment to communicate with You, Jesus, our silent prayers also reach Your heart, as we pray for healings.

I would also take this opportunity, my good Lord, to say: "I am so sorry for my sins, for all the things I said, thought and did that were not pleasing You and offended You, Lord. I shall work harder to improve myself and become a better person for Christ, and to be more like the reflection of Your radiance. Please, forgive my sins, Lord and Father. We love You so much!! We also ask the Holy Spirit for the fruits of the spirit to flood our hearts, vessels and minds, in order to serve You much better every day of our lives.

Glory to the Father, His only Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, and the Holy Spirit!! The Lord gives us wisdom, as well as guidance and spiritual growth, as we serve the Lord as His messengers. May the Lord´s abounding strength carry you all throughout your lifetime. May His perfect peace be with you, the way only He alone can give.

We ask all these things in Jesus´most powerful and Holy Name, we pray. AMEN.

The Armour of God.

The Armour of God.

I am preparing myself for my second attempt to go to New York for my dear family reunion. I must defend myself from the devil´s evil tricks who had tried to stop me many times to fulfill God´s plan in my life. If that is God´s will, I´ll soon board an evening flight of American Airlines. I should confess that I am a little scared about flying after all the going ons. My first attempt was rather discouraging, for the plane broke down up in the sky and the pilot would have to make an emergency landing. All passangers and the crew returned to the port of departure making delays to our journey. I mentioned to my Christian On-Line friends what had happened to us and my being scared in my life, and a lovely Christian Cyber friend came to me for my spiritual rescue and gave me plenty of advice how to build up strength against the devil´s tricks, work and path of destruction. She told me to read a very important passage in the Bible, so I did. It is written in Ephesians 6: 10-20.

It is called: "The Whole Armour of God."

"Finally, build up your strength in union with the Lord and by means of His mighty power. Put on all the armour that God gives you, so that you will be able to stand up against the devil´s evil tricks. For we are not fighting against human beings but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world, the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark age. So, put on God´s Armour now!! Then when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist the enemy´s attacks; and after fighting to the end, you will still hold your ground.
So stand ready, with truth as a belt tight round your waist, with righteousness as your breastplate, and as your shoes the readiness to announce the Good News of Peace. At all times carry faith as a shield; for with it you will be able to put out all the burning arrows shot by the evil ones. And accept salvation as a helmet, and the word of God as the sword which the Spirit gives you. Do all this in prayer, asking for God´s help. Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason keep alert and never give up; pray always for all God´s people. And pray also for me, that God will give me a message when I am ready to speak, so that I may speak boldly and make known the gospel´s secret. For the sake of this gospel I am an ambassador, though now I am in prison. Pray that I may be bold in speaking about the gospel as I should."
These are the words of the Lord. AMEN.
Let us pray...
May God, the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give to all Christian brothers and sisters grace, peace and love with faith. May God´s grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ with undying love. May our dear Lord with His mighty power give me His strength to carry on with His plan for me in this world with an integrity not only in my body but also in my heart of hearts.
So, help me Lord!! We serve an awesome God. Thank You, dear Lord for another day in Your love, and for listening to our prayers!!
In Jesus´Name, we pray. AMEN
In God´s Garden,
Starry Dawn.

Jesus concluded, "Be on your guard, then, because you do not know the day or the hour." (Matthew 25: 13)

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way. Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are; simply obey the Lord and refuse to do wrong. If you do, it will be like good medicine, healing your wounds and easing your pains." (Proverbs 3: 5-8)

A few months ago, we were flying from South America to New York to meet my dear folks in a family reunion, and I was very happy about it. After a while of flying time, on the flight to New York, the people in the plane were noisy. So, noisy people bothered me. I tried to remain calm though. I noticed the flight attendants whispering among themselves. They looked concerned as if something was going wrong. I looked out the window and noticed a dark black cloud embracing the plane as if it would devour the aircraft at one single blow. I thought the devil would be out there playing his tricks and putting another curse on us.

Shortly after that, the pilot of American Airlines came on the public address system. The pilot announced very calmly, "Please pay careful attention. We have received notice that the plane is experiencing electrical troubles in its engine, and it is unable to go any higher. I can´t go any further than this, so we´ll go back to the port of departure. I would have to make an emergency landing. However, before doing that, I must dump most of its oil into the Atlantic Ocean. You´ll hear strong noises and movements as the oil comes out of the aircraft. We´ll be flying round the ocean for a couple of hours. Please, remain in your seats calm."

The passangers on the plane became very quiet. The incessant, loud chatter turned to silence. Everyone was deep in thought, evaluating their lives, no doubt. I know I was. My first thought was, "Well, Lord, maybe I´ll see You today. That would be wonderful." I had such a calm and peaceful spirit. This is the blessing of knowing God personally and being in the center of His will. There is no fear in facing Him. In fact, great joy will fill your heart at the thought of seeing Him soon. The safest place for any person is in the center of God´s will. I experienced this truth that day. But even during the time of wondering if the plane might be blown to bits, I felt safe. I was exactly where God wanted me to be.

"God has always been your defence; His eternal arms are your support." (Deuteronomy 33: 27)

Father, thank You for giving us peace, Your perfect peace. AMEN.

Have you ever had a life threatening experience??...

Although we usually think that we will live until we are at least 80 years old or even older, a plane crash or a car accident, a disease, war or a natural disaster could end our lives suddenly.

Do you have the assurance that you will go to Heaven when you die??

You can be sure if you are sincere that you would like Jesus Christ to forgive your sins, direct your life and show you the way. You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayers. Praying is simply talking to God. God knows your heart, and He is not concerned with your words as He is with the humble attitude of your heart.

Let us pray now...

Dear Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. I am sorry if I´ve said, thought or done things that were not pleasing You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my heart to You and ask You to come in as my Lord and Savior. Please, take control of my life and show me the way. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Please, bring Your perfect peace to my world, the way only You and You alone can bring, and make me the kind of person You want me to be. I´ll always praise and glorify Your Almighty Name, Father.
In Jesus´most Holy Name, I pray. AMEN.

If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, pray it and Jesus will come into your life as He promised. If you have invited Jesus into your life, praise His grace and glory, and thank Him daily for His blessings in your life. Then, He will never leave you, and you will have eternal life.

Part of this message has been shared with me. So, I´ll share it with you all.

My own story with the emergency landing has certainly been my personal experience.

Thank you in advance for reading!!

"We trust in the power of the Lord."

We trust in the power of the Lord.
At dawn, the morning breaks with its most exquisite and tangible delights showing mother nature in its perfection. I write my little share or dash on the screen board. The magnificent view from my tower dwelling makes me explore another corner of my mind. I wish I could write more often. I always try to find solace and a quiet moment. At times, I am unable to find it. I am not dishearted although I don´t enjoy a full state of freedom. We surely carry our heavy loads and burdens in our lives, but the Lord helps us if we believe and trust Him. The true fact is that the Lord lives in my heart. He is the source of my existance and the essence of my inspiration.
We live in a material society, and we have to deal with it on daily basis. Can we trust people?? This question is a thorn in my heart. Unfortunately, the devil is out there waiting for someone to devour. The devil takes advantage of the situation using all kind of tricks, like cheating and lying, throwing thousand arrows to steal our joy, to destroy peace, mankind and the beautiful things in the world. The devil uses all kind of instruments to reach his deadly evil goals.
How do we protect ourselves from such evil powers?? How do we notice the devil´s presence??... We may notice the presence of the devil just by seeing his deadly evil deeds instead of goodness.

Christians should call the Lord for help right away!! We desperately need God in our lives, for He has given us a job to do while we are in this earthly dwelling. So, we may surrender ourselves under His feet for His protection and guidance. Let our dear Lord Jesus Christ take control of our lives. We come to God in a humble way, for we are nothing without Him but dust in the wind. Please, Almighty Father, show us the way!!

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way. Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are; simply obey the Lord and refuse to do wrong. If you do, it will be like good medicine, healing your wounds and easing your pains." (Proverbs 3: 5-8)
If you realize somehow that there are many or some people who don´t like you or hurt you in one way or the other or make you feel miserable to the point that you think they hate you, call the Lord in prayers for help. The Bible is a real source of wisdom.
Morning Prayer for Help.
"I have so many enemies, Lord, who turn against me!! But You, Oh Lord, are always my shield from danger; You give me victory and restore my courage. I call to the Lord for help, and from His sacred hill He answers me. I lie down and sleep, and all night long the Lord protects me. I am not afraid of the thousands of enemies who surround me on every side. Come, Lord!! Save me, my God!! You punish all my enemies and leave them powerless to harm me. Victory comes from the Lord, may He bless His people." (Psalms 3: 3-8)
A Prayer for Justice.
"Oh Lord, my God, I come to you for protection; rescue me and save me from all who pursue me... Rise in your anger, Oh Lord!! Stand up against the fury of my enemies; rouse Yourself and help me!! Justice is what You demand, so bring together all the people round You, and rule over them from above. You are the judge of the whole human race. Judge in my favour, Oh Lord; You know that I am innocent. You are a righteous God and judge our thoughts and desires. Stop the wickedness of evildoers and reward those who are good. God is my protector; He saves those who obey Him. God is a righteous judge and always condemns the wicked. If they do not change their ways, God will sharpen His sword. He bends his bow and makes it ready; he takes up his deadly weapons and aims his burning arrows. See how wicked people think up evil; they plan trouble and practise deception. But in the traps they set for others, they themselves get caught. So they are punished by their own evil and are hurt by their own violence.
I thank the Lord for His justice, I sing praises to the Lord, the Most High." (Psalms 7: 6-17)
Let us pray...
Dear Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life to You and ask You to come in as my Lord and Savior. Please, take control of my life and show me the way. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life!! Bring Your perfect peace to my world, and make me the kind of person You want me to be. In Jesus´name, I pray. AMEN.

God bless!!
