And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out, “Have pity on me, LORD, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon.” But He did not say a word in answer to her. His disciples came and asked Him, “Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us.” Matthew 15:22-23

Christ’s pity will give you your family, friends and future back

And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out, “Have pity on me, LORD, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon.” But He did not say a word in answer to her. His disciples came and asked Him, “Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us.” Matthew 15:22-23

Numbers 13:1-25–14:1-35, Psalm 106 & Matthew 15:21-28

We’ve described our lives as tumultuous filled with heathen decisions escaping peace for the thrill of instant gratification. We may think we are already doomed playing our emotions to think we are in too deep or we have drifted too far from shore to swim back. The mother of a daughter possessed had lived her life in torment came alive from persistence no matter the history as lived in a time where people probably shunner her and her little girl for the community probably thought her family was being punished by some unforgivable sin.

I welcome a new group of guys today who before attending their Emmaus last weekend may have felt as if the world was stealing every moment of their freedom to worry about things that has pushed us away from our family, friends and our future. React as the mother did today in finding “the power of the Holy Spirit T(to) be the engine that runs your life,” as quoted by the leader of that weekend yesterday. He reminded them as well to “be careful of misplaced self-reliance, it is actually a weakness, and more often than not becomes sinful.”

Here, we must surrender to God’s Will by living the Gospel in thoughts, actions and deeds. We must find the courage to keep calling after Jesus even if we feel we deserve otherwise. Christ’s pity will give you your family, friends and future back. Help the world know the Gospel God gave us all to live forgiven. Forgive by living the faith of Truth calling after Christ in love’s surrender. Teach your family to abide in faith. Teach your friends Christ’s hope is real. Live taught by Christ in charity’s call. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to call after Jesus for every thing we need LORD. Novena prayers day five for Margie K and her family. Novena prayers day three for Adrian with meningitis. Novena prayers day four for Eric S. Novena prayers day seven for my cousin Cheryl. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers. LORD from Psalm 95:6, I chant- “Enter, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the LORD who made us.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

I am yours in Christ,
Thomas Cruz†Wiggins
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Ephesians 6:17-20

Daughter granted her wish– Matthew 15:21-28

If Jesus withdrew
Loving prayer to prove
Faith will accrue
Pity for me and you

As the woman from Canaan
Calling out in faith
Asking the LORD for pity
Her daughter tormented in haste

A demon had possessed her
We learn seemingly shunned
No word from Him to answer
Calling out to David’s Son

Frustrating the Disciples
Away send her they said
After us she keeps calling
The sheep lost of Israel’s egg

Dropping in homage
At Christ’s feet she begged
Needing help for a demon
Possessed daughter unwed

Keep food from children
Right not Jesus replied
Throwing to the dogs
Scraps of master’s table comply

Amazed at her great faith
Daughter granted her wish
Very hour healed forever
Just by waving His wrist

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
