The River ~ Jordan Feliz

Know you have the power of angel armies behind you! Claim them for your life and have peace in all that you face. May you find salvation in the hands of God, and ultimately eternal peace and joy despite the circumstances. Be changed forever ❤


Life can be so overwhelming and complicated at times, and I know I can sometimes feel like I don’t know what to do or who to turn to. Ah, but God is so good for he constantly reminds us that he is with us. One might wonder how you can tell?!

Take a moment and look at his word, it speaks volumes. Also, listening to sermons that bring hope, conviction, and renewal. But most importantly…..God puts people in our lives to help us through the toughest of times. It may be family, or perhaps a friend or two. I find great comfort in both of those. However, I find most of my wisdom and direction from my mentor and my pastor! They have always been there to lead and guide me when my emotions and feelings get in the way of rational thought. They have provided comfort and peace when I could not see any. They have given me insight and knowledge of scripture to provide me with the strength I need to rise to the surface of what feels like an all-consuming ocean.

Tonight, I want to take a moment to encourage anyone who is struggling, anyone who is hurting, anyone who feels lost or depressed, please, please reach out to those God has so beautifully blessed your life with. Call your pastor, visit a mentor, skype with a friend….whomever God has surrounded you with, take the time to talk to them. I know I take great comfort in the encouraging words of my mentor, pastor, family and friends.

May God bless you with peace in whatever trial you face, hold you tightly, and show you the way. Reach out and know he will provide you all you need no matter what circumstance you are in or how saddened or hurt you are. Reach out and find healing in the wisdom and grace of those God has sent your way for they are indeed angels of his love.


Jesus….the ReAsoN for the SeaSoN

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
~ Luke 2:11

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
~ John 3:16

Jesus is the Reason

Christmas day is here at last

With presents and decorations galore

The tree stands aglow

Twinkling like the stars in the night sky

A reminder of the that one blessed eve

Over 2,000 years ago

The angels appeared to the shepherds below

Telling the birth of Immanuel

He is the ultimate gift and Savior to the lost world

Born in Bethlehem, a lowly babe

Sent from Heaven above

God gave us His only Son to live and die

A sacrifice for all mankind

Though presents are lovely

And stockings filled with goodies bring a smile

Remember that fateful night long ago

He is the reason we celebrate

The magi came from afar to worship and adore

They brought Him gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh

The gifts we give to one another are thoughtful indeed

But the best gift we can give

Is the message of eternal life and love

Give the true gift of Christmas this year

Give the message of God’s mercy and grace

The promise of forgiveness of sins

A hope for an eternal life spent with Him


 God bless and keep you and your family always, and may you have the courage to share the love and sacrifice of Christ on this blessed Christmas day!

Christmas Haiku 5 ~ Getting caught up!

Wow…making sure I have a haiku each day before Christmas has been tough to do as time seems to get away from me.  Thus, here I am catching up from Friday and Saturday.  I pray that you enjoy, and that you are reminded of what the Christmas season is all about.  It is not commercialism and gifts wrapped in pretty paper and bows.  It is not the twinkling tree or the garland that decorate the house.  It is not desserts galore and parties everyday.  It IS about Christ!  Christmas for the Christian is a celebration of the birth of Christ, the Son of God, who came from heaven down to earth to be a man, tempted and scorned.  He came to bridge the gap between us and God, separated and broken by our sin.  So, don’t forget to praise God for what he has done.  Remember to thank him for the gift of his Son.  God bless and keep you this time of year and always.  All my love ❤

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men.  ~ Luke 2:14

All glory to God

Hark, the herald angels sing

Praise Him forever
