♕ Today's Promise: “And if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously and without reproach to all, and it will be given to him. But ask in faith, without hesitation. Because the one who doubts is similar to the wave of the sea, driven by the wind and thrown from one part to another.” James 1: 5-6

"I am the vine, you are the branches; He who abides in Me and I in him, that one bears much fruit, because apart from Me they can do nothing ”. John 15: 5
This week my Beloved was reminding me to ask Him audibly for things, I tend to be very quiet, and I usually try first to get by myself before asking for help, He showed me that not asking for help is pride that it takes humility to ask for help. Then with love, He taught me that it pleases Him that we include Him in our daily life, He showed me that there are still religious behaviors in me, such as only looking for Him at certain times of the day, doing things to fulfill a requirement that I myself have imposed, that is religiosity.
He wants a relationship with each of us, and He wants us to include Him in every moment of the day. So I was more talkative with Him lately ... That afternoon He and I went out to walk my dog, I was very hungry so I was thinking about food and I began to talk to Him about my concerns regarding meals, I told Him the truth I wanted to eat healthy, but my flesh leaned towards everything unhealthy and many times it was difficult to reject it because I liked it, I told Him it is so difficult to avoid it, because I like hamburgers, I like sugar, desserts, etc., and I said help me eat healthy, teach me what to eat, how I should eat to be healthy.
Well, when I got home, I wanted to rest a bit and I saw my cell phone, I went to YouTube and a video about healthy food for the week appeared, and I was impressed with how quickly he responded. We all know that videos appear according to the last views we have done or our searches, but I had not looked for anything about food lately! In my heart I knew it was Him.
Today I had another episode, I was with Him and I wanted my 3x5 cards, because I took them to Colombia and recast them upon my arrival in the DR (Dominican Republic), I didn't remember where I had left them. So I said HH (Heavenly Husband), my Love, please, where are my 3x5 cards? The image of my closet came to my mind, and a box that I have there, I kept thinking, there? Well, I went to see, and indeed there they were! I was so happy!!
I am excited that He is present in the simplest moments of my life because for a long time I believed the lie that "I could handle the easy things and He could handle the difficult ones" but it is not like that, He has shown me that He is here to help me in the “easy” and in the difficult, and I am excited to know that just by asking He will help me, He wants to help me and take care of me. I know that if it is in the most "silly" details of my life, it will be much more in the most complex details of it. I can't help feeling cared for, loved, protected ... And In Love with this Man who is always with me …
"Although his benevolence is always greater, and that is why Scripture also says: God stands up to the proud and grants, instead, his favor to the humble." James 4: 6

"...They do not have, because they do not ask for. They ask and do not receive, because they ask with bad intentions, to spend it on their pleasures ”. James 4: 2-3
