Unable to Sleep at Night…

Don’t lose anymore sleep over things that are temporary everything will pass but only one remains

It doesn’t matter what may have interrupted your sleep (at 3:30 am) in the middle of the night, what truly matters is what is keeping you up.

Take a moment to think…what’s keeping up? How are you investing your awake time during those hours that you wish you were sleeping? Now, I’m not talking about your partying weekend—for those who are reading this in actual time since it’s a Saturday morning. I am talking about, about the times were your sleep is interrupted and you cannot pinpoint what is going on that you can’t seem to be able to reconcile sleep.


I must make a parenthesis here: For those who were partying and feel like they are wasting nights and deprive themselves from sleep by doing so can always upon what you’re taking away from your self a selfish act that makes you lack energy and focus today? In which negative ways did you engaged last night (or in prior night) that may have affected your spirit and your energy today, and think about how much different you could have felt if you would have done what the continuation of this post reads.


Are worries and thoughts on temporary things occupying space in your mind where peace and tranquility should be sitting at night? You need your mind clear to have inner peace that allows you to have a free spirit, when you have a free sprit you are able to see things the way they truly are. Everything starts with a thought (I should hashtag that) #eveythingstartswithathought bring your thoughts captive to the obedience of God (2 Co. 10:5).

Have you ever thought, that the first thoughts of your day are the ones that will determine the rest of your day. Wake up with a mind ready for a good day. Start your day determined to conquer. Don’t let a bad wake up become a bad day. Your first thoughts have the power of your entire day. Manipulate them to fit your needs .

Usually to have a peaceful day you need a restful night, but if for any reason you are not getting a restful night I suggest you get an invested night.

“A prayerful night will ALWAYS GIVE the same results as a restful night, because you are resting on the provider of all things. And resting on His embrace”—Denise K

Instead of staying up at night thinking of your home, your car, where you will get your, money from or invest it use prayer as your weapon to kill anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic attack, mental disorder, spiritual battle, ultimately—fight the enemy.

At the end of the day it will all pass like smoke and the only one that will last forever sitting at eternity is God. Waiting for you soul to see how you handled this life and how cared for it.

For those who are reading in actual time Happy Saturday, have a good weekend.

Remember to protect your peace and be a soul saver whenever you can, or lain the gospel and don’t be afraid to work what you believe. Don’t forget that there’s always new hope and you’re more!

As always my fiends, with your best interest at heart!

Where is The Center of Your Peace

“You may have political peace, economic peace, social peace, familial peace—all kinds of peace. But there may be someone reading this right now (edited) who does not have the certainty that you have peace with God.” —unknown.

Ask yourself this question:

  • where is the center of my peace?

Peace is found in many different arenas of our lives, in different ways, I would dare to say shapes and forms. Is felt different every time we experience it, but it should always produce the same fruit. Peace of mind, tranquility, calmness, feeling of completeness. However, it can be a superficial or realistic, temporary or permanent inhabitant.

The good news is that the peace that we find with God is eternal, a long lasting one that gives us mental balance and spiritual stability to make help us make right decisions even when we’re facing trials. The peace of God surpasses all understanding, and takes us to a whole different level. Allowing us to walk in peace with others yet, while they are not at peace with us.

“Make peace with them, not because you have to but because you are at peace with God” —Denise

Isn’t this interesting, and contrary to what we hear or see in this world today? We live in a world that believes in the eye for an eye rule until is applied to them.

Just when you thought that making peace with those in this world was enough, here come something deeper. Seek within, search and see if you have peace have peace with God.

Here are some hashtags to take on for your social media today.

#peaceofmind #mentalfreedom #innerpeace #spiritualpeace #godspeace #love #truehappiness #youaremore #thursdayquotes #thursdaythoughts #letslive #forreal #today #freedom #liberty #letsgo #mentalhealth

As always,

With your best interest at heart!

Make Your Dreams a Reality

Create Connections

Something to take on for the weekend to help create mental balance and spiritual well-being.

Trying to reach everyone can leave one with a feeling of emptiness and unaccomplished, at the same time feeling like everyone is reaching out to us can make ones ego boost out proportion and one can end up feeling greed and end up comparing themselves with others.

Creating balance is essential to grow at the right time in the right areas and help one understand the forces and areas in which we are being processed in order to enjoy our growth step by step.

Dream and create connections that you never envisioned before. Don’t look for followers and don’t live following others.

Make sure to create an aura that attracts the right people and connects you with those who have one alike. Don’t think of those who hit the “following” button as followers think of them as the bridge that will take you to the place you need to get.

Do NOT think of yourself higher than anyone else. Your connections will be your extension to whatever God has awaiting for you.

Don’t let anyone build your character, let your character encourage others and show your attractiveness for you.

Have a free spirit and taste the flavor of a clean soul.

When you follow someone else think of them as a connection necessary to grow and learn from, as a bridge needed to walk through to get to the other side, as an extension to obtain energy from.

Plug in to the right sources and don’t let anyone take your energy from you.

Love freely envision and become what you dreamed of as a child you are more than your current circumstances. Create opportunities instead of situations by linking up with the right people.

Please, believe in yourself.

Freedom is Found in Forgiveness

The freedom that provides victory is rooted in forgiveness Luke 23:34 and nailed through the bones.

  • Is found in forgiving oneself
  • In the forgiveness of others
  • In asking for forgiveness for others even when they don’t ask for it or understand the meaning of it
  • In understanding that forgiveness is not for others but rather for oneself

Keep the following 4 key points in mind:

  1. Forgiveness does not always mean recovery or reconciliation unless it is self-forgiveness.
  2. For a person to be truly victorious and not become a victim the person has to forgive and reconcile with oneself first and move on past the hurt stage.
  1. Freedom comes when one understands that not everyone knows how to forgive or ask for forgiveness but that the right thing to do was to forgive from the heart in order to obtain spiritual freedom.
  1. Give to them what you would want them to give to you (Luke6:31).

Freedom brings peace to your soul, and enabled loyalty, truthfulness and healing. Reflect on how far you’ve become and give thanks for those you’ve been able to forgive even when they haven’t said I’m sorry.

Ps. Start with yourself! You are a unique soul! #youremore

Cual es El Punto

Algo para reflexionar (originally posted in English 4/19/19 w. diff images)

Una vez después de un fin de semana increíblemente victorioso, y lo que sentí como una “vida” de batallas para obtener la victoria, tengo un momento en que me miré y me di cuenta de que siempre he luchado con todo lo que he tenido y más. Por lo cual, me siento tan agotada (Duh).

Ahora, el agotamiento puede venir de hacer todo lo que puede o puede venir de no hacer nada en absoluto. Dicen que las batallas más grandes se pelean en la mente … y eso hay verdad, pero debo decir que hay una verdad mayor, los verdaderos guerreros luchan a los pies de la guerra.

Mi mayor logro es ver una imagen de mí misma y saber que lo intenté y que luché con todo lo que tenía. Solo así puedo estar satisfecha, y vivir en paz conmigo misma, no necesariamente sabiendo que gané, sabiendo que lo intenté. No vamos a ganar todas las batallas. De hecho vamos a perder muchos.

“Pero si perdemos muchas batallas en el intento, por lo tanto, los estamos ganando todos porque no nos dimos por vencidos y lo intentamos” – Denise

(Lo siento, tuve que citar eso)

¡No olvides que ganas cada vez que lo intentas en la vida!

No siempre fue así, no estoy hablando de nada en lo que no tenga experiencia, sé lo que es estar agotado mentalmente después de pelear una batalla sin mover un pie.

A veces, la vida puede se sentir que se te viene encima una vez y que ya no tienes la oportunidad de respirar y ser tú mismo, y eso puede parecer confuso, lo que puede hacer que pierdas el sentido de ti mismo. Solo recuerda quién eras antes de que esto transcurriera y quién aspirabas a ser, qué sueños tenías y en qué dirección ibas.

¿Cuál podría haber sido la razón por la que se desvió, o cuál podría ser el posible propósito de esta maravillosa demora en su vida en este momento? ¡Encuentra la belleza en el ahora!

A veces es necesario pausar las cosas, es posible que se estés siendo salvado de algo que no conoces o podría haber sido una puerta más abierta para usted.

Me di cuenta que mi rostro significa fuerza interior, mayor propósito, mayor satisfacción y “estoy bien porque mayor es el que camina delante de mí, no tengo miedo de caminar sola porque sé que tengo la compañía de los ángeles que me protegen”. No sé cuántas personas se sienten tan seguras en la vida en este momento, y no estoy tratando de decirte que la vida es todo melocotones y fresas (eso es una mentira loca) Ni siquiera me gustan los melocotones de esa manera.

La vida es dura, las luchas mentales son reales, las batallas emocionales son fuertes, la sensación de vacío puede desgarrar el corazón y el caos de la vida puede hacer que uno se sienta vacío y solitario.

Pero recuerda que mayor es el que está en ti (si lo recibes) estando solo y la soledad no es lo mismo, que puedes controlar tus pensamientos y que eres amado porque “eres más”.

What’s the Point

Something to reflect

One time after an amazingly victorious weekend, and what it felt like a “lifetime” of fighting battles to obtain the victory, I have a moment when I looked at myself and realized that I’ve always fought with everything I’ve had and more. Thus, I feel so exhausted (Duh).

Now, exhaustion can come from doing everything you can or it can come from not doing anything at all. They say that the greatest battles are fought in the mind…and that is truth indeed, but I must say that there’s is a greater truth. The true warriors fight at the feet of war.

My greatest accomplishment is seeing an image of myself and knowing that I tried, & that I fought with everything that I had. Only then I can be satisfied, and live at peace with myself, not, knowing that I won. Knowing that I tried. We’re not going to win every battle. In fact we’re going to lose many.

“But if we lose many battles trying, therefore we’re winning them all because we didn’t give up and tried” — Denise

(Sorry I had to quote that)

Please don’t forget that you win every time you try in life!

It wasn’t always like this, I’m not speaking of anything I don’t have experience in, I know what is it to be mentally exhausted after fighting a battle without moving a feet.

At times it life may feel like is coming at you all once and that you don’t get an opportunity to breath and be yourself anymore, and that can seem confusing, causing you to lose sense of self perhaps. Just remember who you were before this transcended and who you aspired to be, what dreams you had and what direction you headed.

What could had been the reason why you got detoured, or what could be the possible purpose for this wonderful holdup in your life right now? Find the beauty in the now! Sometimes things need to be paused, you might be being saved from something that you don’t know about or there might be a greater door opening up for you.

My face means inner strength, bigger purpose, greater satisfaction, and “I am okay because Greater is He who walks before me, I am not afraid to walk alone because I know I have the company of the angels protecting me!” I don’t know how many people feel as secure in life right now, and I am not trying to tell you life is all peaches and berries (that is a wacky lie) I don’t even like peaches and berries like that.

Life is hard, the mental struggles are real, the emotional battles are strong, the feeling of emptiness can tear at the heart, and the chaos of life can make one feel empty and lonely.

But remember that greater is he that is in you (if you welcome Him) being alone and loneliness is not the same, that you can control your thoughts, and that you’re loved because “you’re more”!

Dolores de Parto

Lugar de nacimiento

Originally posted in English 4/4/2019 & translated to Spanish 4/5/2019

Entonces dicen “finge hasta que lo logres” y yo digo “intenta hasta que lo consigas”. Dicen que “el cielo es el límite” y yo digo que “la vida es eterna, no hay límites mientras estés vivo”.

Somos herederos del cielo, por lo tanto, enfrentaremos adversidades y situaciones mientras estamos aquí en esta tierra que harán que las cosas parezcan insoportables.

Las pruebas y las tribulaciones pueden hacerte pensar o sentir que el final está cerca, pero la voz de Dios te recordará que este es solo el lugar de nacimiento. Incluso si miras hacia el futuro y las cosas parecen vacías y aisladas, ejercita el pensamiento positivo y la conversación positiva.

  • Tienes que pelear
  • Tienes que empujar
  • Tienes que quererlo
  • Tienes que soñar
  • Tienes que orar para conseguirlo.
  • Tienes que renacer
  • Tienes que vivir

Cada vez que hay un nuevo nacimiento, el dolor del parto vendrá antes. Usa el dolor como una señal de ruptura y de que algo más grande está llegando. Para dar a luz lo que tienes dentro, debes pasar por el dolor de dar a luz a la promesa.

Te daré algunos consejos para vivir la vida día a día.

1. Despierta cada mañana con nuevos objetivos alcanzables: no dejes que nada te impida alcanzarlos.

2. Cree que lo que estás atravesando no será eterno: aunque tu vida lo sea, todo es un proceso.

3. Aprecia todo lo que tienes: muchos no tienen ni una cuarta parte.

4. Sepa que estas bendiciones son de Dios: ningún ser humano puede darle lo que Él puede.

5. Vive como si este fuera tu último día: recuerda que ya sea en el cielo o en el infierno, la vida es eterna.

No te desanimes por el dolor, este es solo el lugar de nacimiento, es hora de cosechar, empujar, luchar o fingir hasta que lo logres.

Pero te exhorto a luchar por lo que quieres hasta el final.

Con amor como siempre,

Labor Pain

The birthplace

So they say “fake till you make it” and I say “Try till you get it”. They say “the sky is the limit” and I say “Life is eternal, there’s no limits as long as you’re alive”.

We are heirs of heaven therefore we will face adversity, and situation while we are here on this earth that will make things seem unbearable.

Trials and tribulations might make you think or feel that the end is near, but God’s voice will remind you that this is just the birthplace. Even if you look ahead and things seem empty and isolated, exercise positive thinking and positive talk.

• You have to fight

• You have to push

• You have to want it

• You have to dream

• You have to pray to get it

• You have to be reborn

• You have to live

Every time there’s a new birth, labor pain will come before. Use the pain a signal that something bigger is coming. In order to birth what you have within you must go through the pain of birthing the promise.

I’ll give you some tips to make it through life day by day.

1. Wake up every morning with new achievable goals: don’t let anything stop you from achieving them.

2. Believe that what you’re going through will not be eternal: although your life is.

3. Appreciate everything that you have: others don’t have a quarter of it.

4. Know that these blessings are from God: no human can give you what He can.

5. Live as if this is your last day: remember that whether in heaven or hell, life is eternal.

Don’t get discouraged by the pain, this is just the birthplace it’s time to reap, push, fight or fake it till you make it.

But I exhort you to fight for what you want until the end.
