I am loved!

Hey guys!

Inspired by the “I am” course, by MessengerX, I decided to share here some of the knowledge and insights I got from this class today! Enjoy =)

“I am loved, so I love wihout reservation!”

The love of God it is a Father’s kind of love, that we can’t learn from other’s teachings. It is an amazing gift that we have to receive and experience by ourselves!

As for me, I can say that, it was on my hardest moments that I could taste and experience how powerful and deep is His love for me! It is when I am feeling weak, hopeless, tired and confused, that I easily allow myself to open my heart and receive the sustaining and comforting Love, that keeps me going!

I don’t need to surrender to those feelings and give up. I have the opportunity to face another day, under God’s light! I am daily strengthen by His Presence!

When we trully understand that we are loved by our heavenly Father, and more, that we were created BY LOVE to BE LOVED, then we can love from a place of rest and confidence: No matter the outcomimg, we already carry the perfect Love inside of us! We are called to live from( a place of) love, not for love. So we can say: “I am loved, so I love without reservation!”

It is not about “what can I do for God?”( so I can earn His love) but, instead, “what God already done for me?” So we can embrace the truth that He loved us so much that He gave His only Son, to pay for our sins and reconnect us to His love and presence! We can love from a place of rest and security in Him!

We are only able to believe and trust God when we know, deep inside, with all our hearts and minds, that we are loved!

People that had been hurted have difficulty to believe in God because they does not believe that they are trully loved by Him! So let me say that clearly: No matter what you went through, what you did or what people did to you, God loves you very much and His arms are opened for you!

Love…believes all things!”

Love believes in the best of others, in the best long-term outcome. There is no disappointment in God’s perfect love! When we carry this love, we encourage and expects the best, even when things don’t goes our way! Because we know that in the end “all things cooperate for the goodness of those who loves God! (Who loves us back).

“So don’t be afraid: I’m with you.
    I’ll round up all your scattered children,
    pull them in from east and west.
I’ll send orders north and south:
    ‘Send them back.
Return my sons from distant lands,
    my daughters from faraway places.
I want them back, every last one who bears my name,
    every man, woman, and child
Whom I created for my glory,
    yes, personally formed and made each one.
(Isaiah 43:7)

I am PROTECTED by the truth that nothing can escape the reach of my Father’s love!”

Like I said before, when we realize that we are trully loved, we can be our true selves and act from this place of rest and confidence, free from the fear of failure and rejection. Because, no matter the outcome, things are working for the good of the sons and daughters of God! We are surrounded by this Love that can reach, heal and change everything: circumstances, minds,hearts, people!

Living from this place of imeasurable love it is a learning process! Don’t be in such a hurry! Take one step at the time, truSting that God will come for you, every time! And day after day, you will see and experience His faithfulness and care, in the most detailed and amazing ways!

Surrender all your fears, worries,plans and dreams to Him and let this process begins! You will never regret of trusting God’s Love!

Have a great day, surrounded by your Father’s love! Untill next time!

Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,”. Doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end. Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.” (1 Corinthinas 13: 4-8)

Eu sou amado!

Ei pessoal! Como vocês estão?

Inspirada pelo curso “ I am” (Eu sou!) do MessengerX , decidi compartilhar aqui algumas percepções e encorajamento que eu recebi dessa aula hoje! Aproveite =)

“Eu sou amado, então eu amo sem reservas!”

O amor de Deus é o tipo de amor de Pai, que não podemos aprender com os ensinamentos dos outros. É um presente incrível que devemos aceitar e experimentar por nós mesmos!

Quanto a mim, eu posso dizer que foi nos meus momentos mais difíceis que pude provar e experimentar o quão poderoso e profundo é o Seu amor por mim! É quando me sinto fraca, sem esperança, cansada e confusa, que mais facilmente me permito abrir meu coração e receber o Amor que me sustenta e conforta, que me faz continuar!

Eu não preciso me render a esses sentimentos e desistir. Tenho a oportunidade de enfrentar mais um dia, sob a luz do amor reconfortante de Deus! Eu sou fortalecida diariamente por Sua Presença!

Quando realmente entendemos que somos amados pelo nosso Pai celestial, e mais, que fomos criados PELO AMOR para SERMOS AMADOS, então podemos amar de um lugar de descanso e confiança: Não importa o resultado, já carregamos o Amor perfeito dentro de nós! Somos chamados pra viver de (um lugar de) pleno amor, não para receber amor. Portanto, podemos dizer: “Eu sou amado, então eu amo sem reservas!”

Não se trata de “o que posso fazer pra Deus?” (para merecer Seu amor), mas em vez disso, “o que Deus já fez por mim?” Para que possamos abraçar a verdade de que Ele nos amou tanto que deu Seu único Filho, para pagar por nossos pecados e nos reconectar ao Seu amor e Presença! Podemos amar de um lugar de descanso e segurança Nele!

Só podemos acreditar e confiar em Deus quando sabemos, verdadeiramente, com todo o nosso coração e mente, que somos amados!

Pessoas que foram feridas têm dificuldades em acreditar em Deus, porque não acreditam que são verdadeiramente amadas por Ele! Então, deixe-me dizer isso claramente: Não importa o que você passou, o que você fez ou o que as pessoas fizeram com você, Deus o ama muito e Seus braços estão abertos para você!

O amor…acredita em todas as coisas!”

O amor acredita no melhor dos outros, no melhor resultado a longo prazo. Não há decepção no perfeito amor de Deus! Quando carregamos este amor, encorajamos e esperamos o melhor, mesmo quando as coisas não acontecem do nosso jeito! Porque sabemos que no final “todas as coisas cooperam para o bem daqueles que amam a Deus! (Que nos ama de volta=).

“Não tenha medo,
 pois eu estou com você,
do oriente trarei seus filhos
e do ocidente ajuntarei você.
Direi ao norte: Entregue-os!
e ao sul: Não os retenha.
De longe tragam os meus filhos,
 e dos confins da terra as minhas filhas;
7todo o que é chamado pelo meu nome,
 a quem criei para a minha glória,
 a quem formei e fiz”.
(Isaías 43:7)

“Eu sou PROTEGIDO(A) pela verdade de que nada pode escapar do alcance do amor do meu Pai!”

Como eu disse antes, quando percebemos que somos verdadeiramente amados, podemos ser nós mesmos e agir a partir desse lugar de descanso e confiança, livres do medo do fracasso e da rejeição! Porque, não importa o resultado, as coisas estarão trabalhando para o bem dos filhos e filhas de Deus! Estamos rodeados por este Amor que pode alcançar, curar e mudar tudo: circunstâncias, mentes, corações, pessoas!

Viver desse lugar de amor imensurável é um processo de aprendizagem! Não tenha tanta pressa! Dê um passo de cada vez, percebendo que Deus virá ao seu encontro, todas as vezes! E dia após dia, você verá e experimentará Sua fidelidade e cuidado, das formas mais detalhadas e surpreendentes possíveis!

Entregue todos os seus medos, preocupações, planos e sonhos a Ele e deixe este processo começar! Você nunca se arrependerá de confiar no amor de Deus!

Tenha um excelente dia, cercado pelo amor do seu Pai! Até.

“O amor é paciente, o amor é bondoso. Não inveja, não se vangloria, não se orgulha. Não maltrata, não procura seus interesses, não se ira facilmente, não guarda rancor. O amor não se alegra com a injustiça, mas se alegra com a verdade. Tudo sofre, tudo crê, tudo espera, tudo suporta. O amor nunca perece; mas as profecias desaparecerão, as línguas cessarão, o conhecimento passará.  Pois em parte conhecemos e em parte profetizamos; quando, porém, vier o que é perfeito, o que é imperfeito desaparecerá.” (I Coríntios 13)

When vulnerablity is power…

“I’ve come to knock down walls.
 The walls you have built around yourself shall crumble before me. The seemingly impossible situations that have wounded you and caused you to barricade yourself in, are nothing but paper to me. I can easily flick them away, if you’ll invite me. With me, you don’t have to fear being exposed and vulnerable. You don’t have to fear being ashamed or embarrassed.

Though you’ve hidden behind this protective barrier, I desire to draw you out, to make you comfortable in your own skin. I want to teach you how to trust, how to love. I will knock down every wall and set you free. You don’t have to hold it all together. You don’t have to appear to be something you’re not. And you don’t need to protect yourself. Let me protect you. Let me heal you with the holy oil of my presence.

I want you to walk in awareness of my presence, but I also want you to be aware of your own heart. Give yourself time to get to know yourself and to find the greatness of me inside of you. I want you to know the truth that extinguishes fear, to let my glory be your only enclosure.” (Whispers written by Brian Simmons and Gretchen Rodriguez)

Hey friends! Today I decided to share this amazing word with you cause it really talked deeply in my heart when I received it by e-mail!

I can tell that I have always been a person discreet, who did not like to share much about my life and problens. However, since God asked me to write this blog and share my experinces I had to face the fear of being vulnerable!

I did not like the idea of being exposed and judged by my words, but I realized that there is power in my wounds and, what Jesus done in my life, He can also do in yours, even more when I release a testimony of His love and power!

I used to be a person who did not trust anyone and who was always protecting myself from disappointments. However, I have to tell you the truth: It never works! When we build a wall around ourselves to be protected from people, because we were hurted in the past, the only thing we get are loneliness and an insensitive heart!

It is not a easy task to be vulnerable. But the love of God is powerful to turn down our walls and to heal our past wounds! He does this in me till these days and despite of some painful times, it is totally worth to be open for His healing love!

Don’t resist the process that God has for you. I know that is hard and seems pointless sometimes, but He knows best what we need to live a healthy life, a life without walls and full of trust. Only partnership with Jesus can makes us overcome our vulnerabilities’ fears and live a life of real freedom!

Invite Him to your wounded places, to your heart! And watch Him change your whole world, turning your sorrows in happiness and strength!

The desert and the parched land will be glad;
    the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
    it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
    the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the Lord,
    the splendor of our God
.

3 Strengthen the feeble hands,
    steady the knees that give way;
say to those with fearful hearts,
    “Be strong, do not fear;
your God will come,
    he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution
    he will come to save you.”

Then will the eyes of the blind be opened
    and the ears of the deaf unstopped.
Then will the lame leap like a deer,
    and the mute tongue shout for joy.
Water will gush forth in the wilderness
    and streams in the desert.
” Isaiah 35:1-6

Rubble at My Feet

My walls of resistance are shattered
The remnants of a great tower
Lay as rubble at my feet.

Released from the imprisonment
The locks have been undone
My shackles are no more.

Before me lies a vast and open field
Every direction opens to me
I am free to run away.

Standing still for what seems an eternity
I hold on to old and empty rules,
afraid to take a step.

In the distance I see another soul
Slowly making his way to me
I feel the urge to hide.

Within clear sight his beauty is clear
His past transgressions wiped clean
I stand before him transfixed.

The rubble at my feet dissipates
As he makes his way to me
A calm peace overtakes me.

His eyes see through my brilliant façade
My insecurities melt away
I recognize the familiar.

For only a moment I wish for the wall,
something to provide protection.
The moment passes away.

In the silence and the sound of his voice,
My heart begins to beat again
I feel lovely once more.

The walls of resistance have fallen
Their rubble soft white sand
We walk out into the field.”
