For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:25

For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:25

Jeremiah 20:7-9, Psalm 83, Romans 12:1-2 & Matthew 16:21-27

When you lose your life by taking up Christ’s Cross and following Him, you do not die for His sake yet your old life has fallen away and the new you in Christ has come alive in a surrender that gives hope to mankind. I’ve heard it said it is much easier to lay down your life and die than it is to become One with God in all things in giving up your life for His Truth. Think of that High Calling from God. Are you willing to give up everything for Him to dwell in your heart forever guiding you to an Eternal Home?

His Truth will set you free from desires of flesh and self by the Brightest Light the world has ever known illuminating every step you take making simple chores of life seem rewarding. The Light will illuminate your heart and soul when you empty yourself of all worldly desires and walk in His Light of Truth to accomplish faith, charity and love. To do the Will of the Father takes practice by reading your Bible more than just once a week.

The Will of God demands your attention to detail in giving Him your all in every situation even when the Light seems dim. It is precisely at these times when you must turn up the Flame of Christ by your practice and prayer ready to proclaim His Good News to the ones you love and don’t love. Make no distinction between the ones you know and don’t know or like or dislike. His Truth is meant for anyone at anytime and anywhere in world. For, “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 16:25

So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today our life always represents Your Will to proclaim Your Glory. We pray today for peace and healing of Alexandra. We pray for the people encountering the winds and rains of the hurricane near NY as well as my brother Chris who’s there living amongst its arrival. We pray all this in the Name of Christ Jesus. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

A Life Lost to Pray

He had to suffer

It was His fate

The Will of God

No ransom to pay

He explained this

To the Disciples dismay

I must die for you all

To raise on the third day

Peter sad with fear

Yelled with a tear

“God forbid, LORD!”

Never while I’m here

Christ had to explain

Peter a life to know

Thinking as humans

Not as God to show

The world He’s in control

Over death to make it known

God’s Only Son was real

Blood on a Cross to seal

A life for those who choose

My Cross to carry too

Finding along the Way

A Life Lost to Pray

For love of Humanity to stay

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
