The New Self of peaceful persistent purpose. “You should put away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of Truth.” Ephesians 4:22-24

The New Self of peaceful persistent purpose.

You should put away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of Truth. Ephesians 4:22-24

Exodus 16:2-4, 12-15, Psalm 78, Ephesians 4:17, 20-24 & John 6:24-35

It’s hard to trust the LORD with everything you live for especially if you’re in the desert with a bunch of runaway people used to being satisfied by false rations of content and flavor. Many Americans feel this false ration of hope is being mascaraed as going “forward” in a bland taste of camouflaged sparkles of excess.  Even when we become freed from the slavery of sin we sometimes think the life of righteousness as Commanded by God seems to boorish for the likes of many attempting instead to tightrope across God’s Decrees as some sort of “right” to live halfway in sin yet forgiven and halfway out.

It happened to the freed Israelites that Moses took out of bandage only to swagger, moan and complain God was abandoning them in the midst of complete chaos, famine and despair. Not only did He provide for them the Bread from Heaven but He provided the tender meat of angels in the quail he fluttered the ground with each day that would prove to them to cower before the Mighty LORD of all. The LORD will test us just as He tested their loyalty by expressing to Moses His Truth. “I propose to test them in this way to see whether they will follow My Law or not.” Exodus 16:4d 

The LORD will satisfy our hunger by the Trust we place in His Truth. A hunger not only for nourishment of the body but the soul’s refreshing wind of holiness, happiness and hallowed consecration living the new “Way of Life created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of Truth.”

It seems frightening sometimes to “Let go and Let God” but the “new self” of accepting God’s Divine Word, Will and Wonder relates to every step of peaceful persistent purpose you live in your heart. The peace to do what’s right even in the midst of abrasive opposition. The persistent confidence to share Christ’s Salvation to complete strangers with care. The purpose of allowing as many souls as possible to know Christ’s Salvation by walking the Life of Christ in a renewed spirit of humility, health and honor. Amen.

So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today to find our new self by living Your Word. We pray day nine of a Novena of prayers for Mesfin Zabrocki and Lucy Moreira to be at peace LORD. We pray for the intentions of Rick Maulini who I dedicate my poem to below. We accept Your Divine Will in all things. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

Philippians 4:4-7 Romans 8:28

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!

 

Jesus Christ is my strength and that is a fact- In honor of Rick Maulini (GBU!)

 

Hebrews 11:1-3 to begin

What is faith to win?

Made by God’s love to grin

Exampled by Christ void of sin

 

How to trust God we can’t see?

Free Will guides us to be

Believers in Grace to agree

How His Truth set us free

 

Alone in prayer I felt

My secret place I eagerly dwelt

Surrender to Christ my life He dealt

A moment of faith making me melt

 

I asked God for direction

A reflection I felt in detection

Of Christ in strength of affection

Ashamed I needed correction

 

The moment of faith may not last

Commit to pray and surrender the past

Even in doubt in Him I can grasp

When I am weak I am strong in Him to gasp

 

Jesus Christ is my strength and that is a fact

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
