Estefany Flores, que asiste a la iglesia de Robbinsville de la Conferencia de Nueva Jersey, ha pasado por muchas luchas en su vida que han puesto a prueba su fe cuando se trata del tiempo de Dios.
El Comité Ejecutivo de la Conferencia de Nueva Jersey (NJC) ha elegido recientemente a Carlos Portanova como nuevo tesorero de la conferencia.
The morning after Tropical Storm Isaias brushed through my neighborhood, I went outside to check my garden beds. The soil along the slope of a small pine grove where the summer weeds were normally difficult to pull up was now unusually saturated, and the weeds came out easily.
As I look back over my 70 years, I cannot say that I have always been a good neighbor. My obedience to the second of the great commandments is constantly evolving because I want to love my neighbors by the Master’s standards, not my own.
It happened in the summer on a Sunday morning. I was awakened by my wife who said, “Wake up, the babies are here!” This was no dream; this was reality. This was the day. You see, we were expecting the surprise of our lives: three babies. Yes, triplets!
“If God calls you to it, He will lead you through it.” It isn’t what I can do or what I know, but who God is and what He knows.
Jeremiah 29:11 has become one of my favorite texts. It helps me remember that God is in control of my life. He wants me to rely on Him and to implement His plans.
So now when I pray, I pray with confidence that God will know what I am trying to say, and He will listen to me.
Since the time I was baptized into the Seventh-day Adventist Church
as a teenager, I must admit my faith has teetered. I finally embraced the fact that having a daily scheduled time with God is imperative to my survival.
