Returning to God with patience, persistence and purpose of sharing God’s Truth.

So whoever is in Christ is a New Creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come. Second Corinthians 5:17

This son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found. Luke 15:24

Joshua 5:9, 10-12, Psalm 34, Second Corinthians 5:17-21 & Luke 15:1-3, 11-32

A week ago today I was preparing to awake in the Hills of North Carolina where just the day before I was running around in snow flurries yelling “thank you God for washing us clean” acting as only a Native Florida Boy could do praying I could make a Snow Angel summoning and showering God with praise holding my hands high and yes while opening my mouth up catching the surprisingly large snowflakes drifting towards the ground. (Whew, a 77 word sentence.) The most amazing thing about life is to be “Born Again” in Christ when the waters of Baptism wash your sins away and allow a fresh look on life as examples of living True to God begin to emerge in your thoughts, actions and deeds to know Christ’s love of body, mind and soul.

Paul reminds us to day we are a “New Creation” gifting us with His Grace to accomplish new and exciting acts of charity joined in returning to God with patience, persistence and purpose of sharing God’s Truth. You can see it in your friends and family warming your heart indulging in Truth by practice of His Word living His New Creation day-by-day energizing the dead body leaving old things behind enjoying new things in Christ. The wrong turns of a selfish child can one day turn into a found new creation in Christ.

Any father I would think feels the same way about any loss of their own child in their heart whether separated by life’s mistakes of selfishness or greedy desires acting excited as Christ’s Parable depicts. Love of child does not go away it resonates in your soul as a silent reality of God’s love. It is God’s love that is constant through hurt and pain success and failures birth and death. Being Born Again allows God to daily wash you anew in His Spirit seeking faith, admiring hope and living love. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we live Born Again in Your Spirit of Truth. Day 7 of a Novena for the completion of Carolina Emmaus #2. Praying for Kairos. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. LORD, grant us the courage of our convictions that our lives may faithfully reflect the Good News You bring. I pray for Juan Menendez and his family who my poem is in honor of today. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

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
