Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

"But God ...Has Raised us Up”

Ultimately, there's nothing that can fill the emptiness of the human heart - but God.
There's no solution to war, prejudice, and injustice - but God.
There's no satisfaction for the cravings of the flesh - but God.
There's no healing for the brokenhearted, lonely and desperate - but God. 
There's no turning point for human depravity - but God.
There's no deliverance from addiction and heartache - but God.
The 'But God' factor breaks every generational curse that reaches you through Adam's sin.
One Greek translation of the word ‘spirit’ is 'air'. 
When you were 'dead in trespasses and sins (' (Ephesians 2:1), 
God breathed divine air into you. 
Paul says, “and you, (He made alive, when you were dead by your trespasses and sins' (Ephesians 2:1 Amp).
 The truth is you never really lived until you met the Lord!
The 'But God' factor turns tragedy into triumph. It's the turning point in your story.
Hell would be partying today, 'but God' chose to lavish His mercy and grace on you.
Listen: '...though He was rich, yet for your sake 
He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich' (2 Corinthians 8:9).
 Rich in wisdom, Rich in achievements, Rich in relationships and Rich in 'all things'.
Despite satan’s efforts to destroy, diminish, defame and discourage you, God never once took His hand off your life.
He brought you to an understanding of Jesus as your Savior and Lord; now He's raising you up to fulfill His purposes.
No matter how bad things may look today, rise up and declare 'But God!'
