Open Letter of faith from a believer in Christ.

The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common. With great power the Apostles bore witness to the Resurrection of the LORD Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all. Acts 4:33

“Do not be amazed that I told you, ‘You must be born from above.’ The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:7-8

Acts 4:32-37, Psalm 93 & John 3:7-15

Today I’m going to share a response to an adult child of a mother who asked, “Why does God allow cancer to infect friends but especially mothers who are good people?” My answer was as follows: Please know I was very disheartened to learn about your mom’s illness and I pray for her daily.  When I learned I was shocked to hear and I asked God to heal her.  I continue to pray for her safe healing daily and it is my hope she is doing better.  You ask a very important question that mankind has contemplated since the beginning of time.  I don’t have a holier than thou answer I just have faith in a compassionate God Who I have seen heal people before my very eyes.

From cancers to addictions, our God can and will do anything you ask of Him but as most people learn on His on time.  Free will causes some painful things when Satan grabs a soul.  I’m not saying that Satan caused your mom’s illness.  I’m saying his aim is to cause havoc in the world and by looking around you can see for yourself that he has done just that.  Faith is about the expecting of what is to come.  I know through reading the Bible that a Heaven awaits those who believe in the love and Sacrifice of Jesus Christ who paid everyone’s debt by dying on a Cross for the sins of the world.  That is my faith.

I am a Catholic who believes prayer is the most powerful tool just as your Abuela.  Ask her why your mom got sick, more importantly, ask your Abuela why she was healed.  The LORD will test the faith of those who believe as well as non-believers.  I offer my life to Him and live by His Will, good or bad and I will until the day I die.  I am encouraged by your request because it made me think all day about a God who’s in control of all things.  I pray you come to know our LORD (as your Abuela is as well) and I hope you continue to ask the tough questions that only God can answer.  May the peace and love of Jesus Christ walk with you always. The Abuela (grandmother in Spanish) was a true Catholic of faith who passed away last week of cancer. She is at peace in God’s Will. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to always live as strong believers in Your Son Christ Jesus. Praying for David suffering from burns. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day three of a Novena for Russ Thoms and his daughter Serenity. LORD from Psalm 27:12-13 I chant: ”Do not abandon me to the desire of my foes; malicious and lying witnesses have risen against me. I believe I shall see the LORD’s goodness in the land of the living.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

I am yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

Embraced by His Heartbeat’s Grace– In honor of Pastor Bob Feierabend

 

Greeted in Christ

Self can’t suffice

Personal invite we might

Location welcome Light

 

Unafraid of hurt

By this love of worth

Jesus knows betrayal’s girth

His response to soothe you first

 

Grace and mercy abound

Your run from Christ’s sound

Welcomed back picked off the ground

Trust to rediscover His pound

 

Embraced by His Heartbeat’s Grace

Seeing Christ’s face

Even in this place

Redemption Eternity to state

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
