No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God. Luke 9:62

Nehemiah 2:1-8, Psalm 137 & Luke 9:57-62

There is a time in everyone’s life that we look at what God made in us and say, “LORD thank you for making me the way I am” or “LORD why couldn’t I have been made to look like so and so.” I believe in my heart that the LORD is upset that you don’t accept how you are or what you’re made to accomplish for Him as acceptance of His Providential Will. Too many of young people today look up to complete strangers instead of their own family of friends. I am reminded of a friend’s talk about his life when he was growing up. He was an early teen looking for things to do when a friend invited him to hear an Olympic star speak about his life and his success as an Olympic runner. He told the group of children if you believe what a person said when you made a mistake in a comment like, “you’ll never amount to anything,” then you’re not thinking for yourself.

This friend heard this man talk about goals, God and looking up to people you know and not complete strangers who you have no idea how they are or how they act. Just because a person is a sports star or in the movies doesn’t mean they are good role models. Someone once said, “you are what you eat and live but your past doesn’t dictate your future;” you do. I have talked before about living a life of sin and selfishness and LORD knows I’ve made a lot of mistakes. But I am reminded how bright my future is with Christ’s Light illuminating my life because His Word teaches us we can’t look back and be fit for the Kingdom of Heaven, no we must look forward and live His Will for the Glory of God.

So we ask in prayer: Dear God we pray today we always look to the future of Your Kingdom living Your Word for peace of mind. We pray for the NJ/Philly Emmaus Team as they prepare for their Emmaus Weekend Retreat. Men of God in New Jersey, my prayers are with you now and forever. We pray for my daughter Alexandra’s peace and healing. We pray all of this in the Name of Christ Jesus. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Christ’s Love Eternally Bore It- Luke 9:57-62

Many attested to His grace

Following to end earth’s mistakes

Nothing to hide or to save

Just His Truth to life’s elate

Follow Me was His reply

Not resting but living to die

For the sins of all the world

Shouldering the pains of your lie

Hold my plow not looking back

The Truth must go forward

The dead bury the dead

Christ’s love eternally bore it

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
