WE NEED GOD AND GOD NEEDS US!

WHY DOES GOD NEED US?, WHY DO WE NEED GOD?. GOD NEEDS US BECAUSE HIS LOVE FOR US IS SO POWERFULLY ENDLESS THAT HE CANNOT STOP LOVING US, THE CREATURES HE HAS CREATED.  NEVERTHELESS, ALTHOUGH GOD NEEDS US, SINCE HE IS ALTOGETHER LOVE,  WE NEED TO DESERVE HIS LOVE. WITH A VIEW TO DESERVING GOD´S LOVE, FIRSTLY WE HAVE TO LOVE EVERY SINGLE PERSON.  IN ORDER TO LOVE EVERYONE WE NEED TO EMPTY OUR HEARTS OF HATRED AND TWISTED THOUGHTS.  ONCE EMPTIED, WE CAN START FEELING AGAIN THAT INNOCENCE WE ONCE KNEW.

THIS WORLD IS FAR TOO MUCH FOR EACH OF US. THE BEST THING TO DO IS TO LET OUR SOUL AND WORRIES REST IN GOD´S LOVE. GOD IS WAITING FOR EVERYONE OF US TO ADDRESS HIM AND SAY TO HIM SOMETHING LIKE THIS, FIRST OF ALL: ” I LOVE YOU, FATHER “. HE IS ALSO WAITING FOR US TO ASK HIM FOR HELP;  SO NOW IT WOULD BE PERFECT TIMING TO ASK HIM TO WORK THE MIRACLE WE MAY NEED.  GOD IS PAYING ATTENTION TO EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING IN OUR LIVES.  NOONE CAN LIE TO GOD.  GOD SEES IT ALL.  THEREFORE, LET US DO OUR BEST TO HELP OUR FATHER FEEL BETTER AS FOR OUR BEHAVIOUR, CARING FOR THE OTHERS, LIKE HE DID DOING MIRACLES.

GOD WANTS US TO HAVE SUCH A STRONG FAITH THAT WE CAN BEAR THE UNBEARABLE IN THIS WORLD, AND STILL KEEP OUR FAITH ALIVE, WHILE TOUGH TIMES RIP US APART. MANY PEOPLE TAKE DRUGS WHEN THEY SUFFER A SETBACK. ON THE OTHER HAND,  DRUGS ARE A RIP-OFF.  IN THE BEGINNING, DRUGS SEEM TO WORK, BUT SOONER THAN LATER WE GET HOOKED ON THEM, AND ONLY A MIRACLE CAN FREE US.  DRUGS DO NOT HELP, OR RATHER THEY MAKE THINGS WORSE,  AND LIFE BECOMES A COMPLETE NIGHTMARE. GOD WANTS US TO RESORT TO HIM WHENEVER WE SEE THE SITUATION IS FAR BEYOND OUR UNDERSTANDING.  GOD NEEDS US TELLING HIM THAT WE LOVE HIM, AND THEN,  ALTHOUGH BURNT OUT, AS WE MAY BE, HUMBLY IMPLORE HIS HELP, KEEPING IN MIND WE SHOULD NEVER GIVE UP WORKING REALLY HARD  ALL THE TIME.

ON THE OTHER HAND, NOT ONLY GOD NEEDS US, WE ALSO NEED GOD,  TO REALLY KNOW WHAT IT IS THAT REALLY MATTERS TO US.  FROM THE MOMENT WE ARE BORN WE ARE IMMERSED IN A SYSTEM THAT FEEDS US IDEAS.  IT IS LATER WHEN WE REALIZE THAT WHAT THE SYSTEM OFFERS US IS NOT ENOUGH.  ACTUALLY, STATUS QUO AND EDUCATION, WITHOUT GOD, DO NOT HAVE ANY SENSE.  ONLY GOD WORKS MIRACLES FITTING  THOSE ALTOGETHER, MAKING US FEEL PEACE WITHIN OURSELVES.  IT IS GOD´S WISDOM THAT GUIDES US IF WE REALLY TRUST GOD.   BY MAKING GOD A PART OF OUR LIVES WE CAN WORK WONDERS,  PRAYING SINCERELY FROM OUR HEARTS.  JUST A SINGLE PRAYER, SAID STRAIGHT FROM DEEP INSIDE, IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO REACH GOD. GOD LOVES ALL OF US EQUALLY, NO MATTER WHAT.  WE NEED GOD TO BECOME SOULS WHO HAVE THE POWER TO LOOK INTO THINGS TO ALWAYS CHOOSE THE RIGHT WAY IN LIFE.

LET US ALL THINK FOR A MINUTE OF ALL THOSE REMORSELESS PEOPLE, WHO AT THIS VERY MOMENT, ARE KILLING OTHERS, AND ABOUT THOSE , THAT HAVE KILLED MORE PEOPLE THAN OUR MINDS CAN BEAR THINKING OF, WITH NO SENSE OF GUILT WHATSOEVER.  THE QUESTION IS THE  FOLLOWING.  DO YOU THINK THAT THESE TWISTED INDIVIDUALS THAT KILL HUMAN BEINGS FOR REASONS SUCH AS MONEY FOR SURVIVAL, FOR EXAMPLE, HAVE JESUS CHRIST´S MORAL LESSONS WITHIN THEIR SOULS?  NO, HANDS DOWN! THAT IS WHAT SOMETIMES HAPPENS WHEN HUMAN BEINGS IGNORE GOD: NEITHER LIFE NOR PEACE IS ENSURED. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON TODAY IN THE WORLD:  PEOPLE ARE IGNORING GOD AND THE RESULT IS GENERAL DISORIENTATION, KILLINGS ALL OVER THE WORLD, HATRED AND VIOLENCE. WE SHOULD NEVER THROW IN THE TOWEL AND LET GOD PAY HIS DUES.

LET US START ADMITTING THAT EACH OF US IS A SMALL CREATURE, REGARDLESS HOW MUCH MONEY OR EDUCATION WE HAVE.  EACH OF US HAS TO BECOME HUMBLE, AND FACE GOD LIKE A SMALL CHILD WOULD DO, LIKE GOD, HIMSELF, WANTS US TO BE, SINCERE AND LOYAL.   HAVING REACHED THIS POINT, WE CAN GO ON, AND TALK TO GOD.   FROM THIS MOMENT ON , GOD WILL BE PART OF OUR LIVES, IF WE CONTINUE COMMUNICATING WITH HIM. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO MAKE OURSELVES A FAVOR STICKING TO GOD THROUGH THICK AND THIN. THIS MEANS WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO IGNORE HIM AND REPLACE HIM WITH EGOISTIC OBJECTIVES.

TIMING IS IMPORTANT, AND THIS VERY MOMENT IS GOOD TO GET OFF TO A GOOD START, SURFING THE MOST IMPORTANT  WORLD-WIDE WEB , “OURSELVES. ”  IT IS ALL  RIGHT TO FEEL HELPLESS AND NEED GOD TO SORT THINGS OUT. GOS IS RIGHT HERE, WAITING FOR US TO BECOME CHILDREN AGAIN AND HUMBLY ASK FOR HELP. FAMILY AND FRIENDS MAY PASS AWAY, BUT GOD WILL BE ALWAYS WITHIN OURSELVES TO PULL IT OFF, WHENEVER WE ARE READY FOR IT. IT SEEMS WE ALL CAN GET AWAY WITHOUT GOD FOR SOME TIME . REALITY PROVES US WRONG.  WE ARE STUDENTS FOR LIFE ON MORAL UPRIGHT.  WHATEVER WE DO, LET US STICK WITH JESUS CHRIST´S LEGACY AND BE PRO-ACTIVE.

WE ARE ALL FACED WITH DIFFICULT SITUATIONS.  THEY MAY BE SOMETIMES THERE FOR DECADES, MAKING US EXHAUSTED, AND AT THE SAME TIME MAKING US BECOME BETTER HUMAN BEINGS, BEFORE GOD PULLS A RABBIT  OUT OF A HAT.  THIS IS ALL PART OF A CONSTANT PROCESS ON EVOLUTION. FOR SURE JESUS CHRIST IS KEY IN EACH OF US.  MY LIFE BACKS UP EVERYTHING I SAID, ALL ALONG, WITH MY EXPERIENCES WHERE GOD HAS MADE THE DIFFERENCE.  I MUST ADMIT GOD HAS WON ME OVER.  I HAVE SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE SAYING PRAYERS TO GOD, ASKING HIM FOR HELP, AND HE HAS ALWAYS WORKED EVERYTHING OUT, ALTHOUGH I MUST SAY THAT IT HAS OFTEN TAKEN GOD A LONG TIME TO REACH ME.  PATIENCE IS MORE THAN KEY IN LIFE!

LET US ALL JOIN AND BREAK BARRIERS, NOT GOING WITH THE FLOW IF THAT GOES AGAINST     GOD´S WILL.  LET US  PULL OUR WEIGHT, MAKING THIS WORLD A BIT BETTER.  WE CAN DO OUR PART, BY LOOKING AROUND US AND DO SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT IT, AND WE CAN GET STARTED RIGHT AWAY.  OH, YES!

It was 1983 when she and her family moved to Getxo. At Deusto University she studied English Linguistics for five years. She was twenty three years old when she got her undergraduate degree.

You see them all together and you see a real celebration of life, of what life should be, of happiness and love. Apart from painting, she is very keen on music and photography. About music, it must be said that she was very much into it during some years in the past, specially when she was taking Classical and electric guitar lessons and writing her own songs. She has got four demos with songs sung, both in English and Spanish. She performed as a singer in some places in the year 2000 after recording all her original songs. She is a hard-working person and a very good listener. She is one of those really positive people that finds solutions to almost anything you can think of. She enjoys creative work, either in painting, photography, dancing, singing, writing or cooking. She also enjoys herself with those little things in life like going out for a stroll in the country, listening to all kinds of music, good company, a good book, helping people in need, taking a nap, or just watching a funny movie. At present she is working as a freelance writer. Let us add that she is really interested in the protection of animals.
