A Grateful Heart Gives

 22.11.10

My daughter's eye captured this... I love her!


Borrowing my friend Persis' words, I must say that even though I grew up a Christian,  "I have been doctrinally undernourished most of my life", it was 7 years (almost 8) ago that the Lord brought us to understand the Doctrines of Grace and since then, we have been devouring the Word of God and theological books. What I learned in the past I learned it so well, that changing all that wrong information has taken a great big deal of time and study.

Now, my family speaks English as our second language, and we are grateful for that and for the fact that we have been able to buy books online and have them shipped to Mexico to nourish our souls. But I want you to imagine for a minute what it is for many people in the Spanish speaking countries, who are starting to be nourished  with sound doctrine and are not  able to find easily good books in Spanish. Think of your five favorite theological books in English, the most probable thing is that they don't have them all published in Spanish...yet.


We have big Christian bookstores, but I guess you can imagine what kind of books they sell, all those books that preach any thing but the gospel. However, I am grateful for one ministry, one beautiful ministry, that is working hard to get more and more good books, that teach sound doctrine translated into Spanish and published.

I am grateful for them, and I want to invite you to prayerfully consider donating to their ministry (Disclaimer: My family is NOT involved in this ministry, I am not doing this for personal reasons at all) Their books are not sold expensive, I have seen that they try to keep the prices as low as possible, but that is not easy, as you can imagine.

I am so grateful for having all these book options in English, but there are many, many brothers and sisters in the Spanish speaking countries that are "doctrinally undernourished" and maybe, we can help a little bit so they can have more good literature in Spanish.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
