What I know for sure…

You have my heart completely!


This past week I underwent several medical tests.

I’ll spare you the gory details, but it places things into perspective -that’s for sure!

As I recovered and sat quietly in my bedroom.

I took that the time to reflect on things I know to be true, and I wanted to share those with my readers.

I have never professed my faith on my blog because it immediately turns folks off, and it opens the door for criticism and judgment. 


Here it goes…

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

I believe in the power of prayer.

I believe that the Holy Spirit guides us and speaks to us and shows us. (Some of you may call me a bruja, but I know what it is…)

I believe that each day offers us a new opportunity to do the right thing.

I believe that WE ARE ALL children of God, created in his perfect image.

I believe that God walks and talks to me and I have literally heard his voice – (you can ask me about that later)

I believe that there is goodness in humanity, though these days it seems so hard to find.

I believe in miracles… daily miracles – they are all around us.

I believe that hope is alive and lives in our hearts if we allow it.

I believe that laughter is the best medicine, and tears wash our souls from sorrow.  There is beauty in both.

I believe that God created me with a strong mind and a strong spirit and its beautiful.

I believe that everyone’s opinion is valid, even when we disagree.

I believe that my political persuasion

has nothing to do with my value before God.

What I know for sure.

God loves me.

God sees me

God cares for me, my family, and friends.

I am not alone in this journey called life.

We all have a distinct purpose

We all have a calling

We all need hope, joy, and love.

What my tests results will say I do not know.

What I do know is that God has my heart completely and whatever awaits, I will move towards knowingly that I have an army of love and hope with me.  

What a privilege it is to live a life filled with hope, even in the darkest hours.

Find that hope.  

Find the love

Find the joy

It will bring you peace.


God loves me…and HE has my heart completely. That I know for sure.
