You are Not a Dissapointment ​

I think everyone needs to hear this. This really speaks to my heart today. Thank you Heather for this.

When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done….(Luke 9:10).
 
You are not a disappointment to Jesus. Nor are you a failure in His eyes. I have felt that way before. Like Jesus and everyone around me sees me as a total disappointment.

There’s this journey that God is taking me on, deep into my heart to uproot lies and set me free from things that have created deep bondage in my life. I am no longer a slave to sin, but one of righteousness. Along the journey of letting go and being made new, the devil will whisper lies into our hearts that attempt to destroy our newness in Christ. Sometimes the process God takes us through of becoming like Him means that we become small in the eyes of the world. It means that we have no stage or place to shine for…

Let Go, Seek His Face, and Become Like Him

Resting in our Father’s arms is where I want to be.

For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,…. (Romans 6:6)

There will come a day when every tear upon my eye will be wiped away. I will see my Lord in all of His glory and I SHALL THEN BE LIKE HIM. Wow, what an overwhelming thought. That I, Heather, the girl who struggles against all sorts of sins will one day be caught up with her Lord in the air and He will robe me in white. I will be purified by His love.

Until that day, I have one desire and calling as a Christian, to become more and more like Him. We will never grow in our newness in Christ unless we come to Him like a child, with innocence and humility.

When I was a teenager I had to go…

When the Praise of People Becomes Your Highest Goal

This is a really good blog from Heather. I really see myself doing this sometimes. Actually, it’s a constant battle. What God thinks of us is truly more important than what others think. Thank you Heather for this inspiring word for today.

“Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”…. (2 Corinthians 10:17).

I spend a lot of time, in my head, boasting about myself. It’s there, inside my own mind, that I am the very best and most commendable of all God’s children. In my own sinfulness, I am hoping the people of God reciprocate back to me my own self- aggrandizement.
 
It’s easy to get our focus off of God and onto ourselves. God gives us gifts, for they are many, and we are quick to praise ourselves instead of Him. Every good and perfect gift is from above. Therefore, we must remember that the praise of our heart must always be in check. We must be careful, as we live, that our own hearts are not held captive by pride and the praise of man.
 
We live in a world where a platform, albeit big or…

Hold Fast, A New Season of Fruitfulness is Coming

This is a blog from Heather Quiroz. I just wanted to share this.

And we boast in the hope of the glory of God…(Romans 5:2).

Last night as I was speaking to the students at SOLID youth group it felt like God pulled a plug off my mouth and for the first time in months I sensed such a strong demonstration of the Spirit’s power that I was overwhelmed with thankfulness for the grace of God.
 
This season I have been walking through in life has been far from easy, in fact, it has been extremely painful. Yet, I am seeing the fruit of holding fast to the Lord Jesus through suffering. I now see the grace of God being displayed in my life in ways I have not experienced. It is a demonstration of the Spirit’s power that for many months was silenced so that God could go somewhere in my heart to bring healing.
 
Sometimes we walk through seasons…
