Hope is a choice to action just like love and faith. These are "forces" because they are powerful actions that require decisiveness and effort and they always bring results.
I Got a Promotion, FINALLY
I am taking a huge pay cut, the circumstances are not ideal but I’ve finally been promoted to the position I’ve always desired. Last year, I was supposed to get this promotion but got in my own way.

Slow as Slow Gets
It’s taken me months of reading to admit that I’m still in the book of Genesis. Earlier this year, I set out on what I thought would result in me reading the Bible more.

Apparently You Love Him
There is a popular salsa song from the 90's called Aparentmente by Tony Vega. I haven't heard it in a while but the lyrics mysteriously crept to the forefront of my thoughts. The first few lines of the chorus goes, "Aparentemente tú le quieres, tú le amas Pero si esta casa hablara Te diría lo … Continue reading Apparently You Love Him
Happy New Decade!
Feliz año nuevo! Happy new year! Fanatic or critic, the year has changed and something "new" is here. If you are a resolution person, just know that God's reconciliation saves us beyond any new habit. If you have dreamed up lovely goals, you might want to give them up. Surrender this year to God because … Continue reading Happy New Decade!
Surrender Your 2020 Vision
The Holy Spirit hit me. Well more like, He told me to kneel and pray. I did. I promise, I woke up the next day with WAY better goals.
