Plan Your WORK Your Plan by: Mary Jean Marquez

"Have a Working Plan"
 by: Mary Jean Marquez
As I drove my daughter to school early this morning in heavy traffic, the following thought came to mind, "thank God we have laws and a working plan/system in place to keep traffic orderly, and people safe."  Then a second thought came to mind, "It only works when people follow the laws and work the planned system." 
There are signs, traffic lights, assigned lanes, speed limits, city laws...that are in place for our safety, but it all begins with learning and studying what it all means, and then implementing what you've learned when you actually get out on the road.  If you don't take the time to learn the system that is in place, or decide that you are going to do your own thing, you won't be a successful driver, and will more than likely cause an accident that will bring harm to yourself and others, and or end up in jail.  You derail and hinder yourself, and possibly others, from getting to where you wanted to be.
It is the same way in every area of life.  God has given us a blue print, a working plan, in His Word to live by, and when we do, our lives can be healthy and full of goodness.  It doesn't mean a perfect life, but an awesome one. 
You need to "have a working plan" for every area of your life with God's Word as your guide.  Stay on the straight and narrow path, and when you get off of that path, and we all do at times, get back on and work your plan.  God's Grace and Mercy are new every morning on your behalf.  Ask God to help and guide you in life.  His plan is always better than your own, and together you can accomplish great things.
It takes getting out of your comfort zone to work your plan.  You can have an amazing dream, but without a working plan, and actually working it, you will go nowhere in life.  Get up and get going.  Put quality effort and time in working your plan at a better career, marriage, physical health...and make sure to continually evaluate and re-evaluate your plan for God leads you, because as you grow and change in your success, your working plan must grow and change in order to reach the next level of success.   Remain progressive in every area of your life!
Make the quality decision to commit to a better higher way of life, and no more making excuses or procrastinating! 
God bless you always!

God's Loving Mercy and Grace By: Mary Jean Marquez

God's Loving Mercy and Grace
By:  Mary Jean Marquez

My first church service of 2016, at my amazing church of 20 years, was revolutionary for me.  God never ceases to amaze me with His divine seasonal intervention in my life.  I experienced two powerful "aha moments" that magnified  God's intervening Mercy and Grace that have always followed me, and how vitally important His Church has been in my life.  The first one came to me as my Pastor taught on Jacob's dream of the ladder in the book of Genesis, and the second one came when he shared one of his Pastor friend's testimony of God's intervention in her life as a child.

My Pastor's teaching that morning was similar to past teachings I've heard, but this morning was extra special because it was the first church service of the new year with my family, and I had been preparing with an expectant heart in prayer/praise/worship to be renewed and re-energized in my spirit and life.  I was also happily excited to plant our first tithe seed of  this new year, and I know the combination of it all made a huge difference in my heart clearly receiving that morning, taking me to another spiritual level of understanding, as I believed for.  I know that God is preparing my heart and His Church for greater works on this Earth.

My first "aha moment" came as Pastor taught out of the book of Genesis chapter 28, where Jacob had the dream of a ladder that was set on Earth with it's top reaching heaven, and God's Angels were ascending and descending on it.  When Jacob awoke he had the revelation of the place he was at, calling it God's house-the Church, being a gateway to heaven.  It was at this moment that I spiritually saw and understood, more than ever, the powerful magnitude of the Church-God's House being the gateway to heaven, that I had not clearly perceived prior.  Since becoming a Christian over 25 years ago, I've known the importance of Church in order for people to grow, renew their minds to live better lives, fellowship, eternal salvation...but never had I seen the church as the gateway to heaven so undeniably clear.  It is crystal clear of the importance for The Church of Jesus Christ to thrive and grow on the Earth, as it is the gateway for God's people to heaven, and to teach people to live healthy abundant lives while on the Earth.  

My second "aha moment" came when Pastor shared Pastor Bobby Houston's testimony of being raised in a Godless home; a home that did not believe in God.  She had a little girlfriend that invited her to church one morning, and that was the beginning of great change, and a life knowing God's  love leading many others to that powerful revelation.  As Pastor shared this, I felt tingles going up and down my body that I had not felt in a long time at church, as I my spirit related so deeply with her testimony.  My mind was triggered taking me back to a childhood memory that I had not thought of in a very long time.  It was so surreal!

The neighborhood I lived in as a child was very poor...and there was a piece of property near where I lived that was used as a dumping ground and dangerously dirty.  Some of the other children and I would play there, because there was nowhere else for us to go and no parental or adult supervision.  In this particular memory I picked up a dirty used needle/syringe I found thrown, and as I stared at it in wonder, a person approached me and asked if my friends and I wanted to go to church; I can't remember if it was a male/female or the age, but I thank God it was not a crazy person as there were lots of those in that neighborhood.  There was a little church nearby up on a hill, and we were always being invited to go by different people and we never did, but on this particular morning I did go.  I remember sitting in a little room with other kids being taught some stories out of a book (The Bible), but I had no idea what in the world this person was saying, however I remember being interested and intently listening.  The one thing I liked about that place was that I was at peace, something I was not used to or understood.  I did return several times because it was somewhere to go instead of the dirty field, it was away from my chaotic home, and they would feed us a little food.  That's the last I remember of that little church and those people, because we were always moving. Perhaps they were my angels.  I do know it was all God sent for me, and was the beginning of my spiritual journey.

This teaching and memory helped me realize that God's Mercy and Grace have always followed me throughout my life.  That is just one memory of many, where God has intervened in my life, and I thank Him for always being present in every season.  I am eternally thankful to God for His Church and the people He has sent to help me in my life's journey.  I in turn desire to help others in their life's journey as God leads. 

Know that God's loving Mercy and Grace follows you all the days of your life, and will never stop because He loves you!  Find a good Bible teaching Church to set yourself in and grow in His Love!

"Mindfully Eating with Purpose!" By: Mary Jean Marquez

My Health Journey that lead to a Vegetarian Lifestyle
By: Mary Jean Marquez
Society is drastically changing in the way we think about food, health and animal welfare.  My own journey has been interesting, and I suppose similar to many of you.  What started as a quest for better health, has lead to my passion of helping all animals.

I was raised a meat eater.  Every single day we ate some kind of meat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with some sort of side loaded with cheese, gravy, and very little or no vegetables and never fruits.  Meat was just the main food on our plates and in my
Hispanic culture every type of meat-food, even beans were fried in LARD!  As an adult, my heart was not liking the years of consuming the overload of fatty meats...and the scary thing is, I had no idea my heart was in trouble!  I was 50 lbs overweight and my body was feeling those extra pounds.

I had a wake up call when my only brother suddenly died of a heart attack when he was a young 46 years of age in 2011.  He and I were only one year and four months apart. 

When I was 48 years of age, shortly after my brother died,  I strongly felt in my heart that I needed to go in to see my doctor for a physical.  I was very surprised to find out that my cholesterol levels were "dangerously high" as my doctor phrased it.  She wanted to immediately start me on a regime of cholesterol medication and some others, but being the stubborn person that I am, and not wanting to get addicted to medications and more afraid of the deadly side affects, I convinced my doctor to give me a chance to try to get my cholesterol levels under control with diet and exercise.  Thank God she did give me that chance.  She gave me a certain amount of time to do it, and I happily share that I did, and I do not have to take medications.  I buckled down and got it done!  I am now (at time of this blog writing) 51 years of age and feeling better than ever in every way!

The first thing I did was prayerfully educate myself on coronary disease, foods...and was lead to a wonderful book titled "Eat To Live" by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.  I devoured this book, and realized that I needed to make serious changes in the way I thought about food, and my eating habits.  I had to throw out all the lies-old information, and renew my mind to new information-truth.  I now "mindfully eat with purpose!" I have a renewed commitment to myself and family to live a longer and healthier lifestyle while helping God's animals and environment.  I have totally revamped the way I eat and lifestyle.  I no longer eat any type of meat, rarely eat eggs or cheese, and cut out all fast foods!  

I also started drinking a lot more water daily, which helps with your entire body.  I never had a problem with drinking sodas, sweet drinks...I always drank water with my meals or when thirsty, but I was not drinking nearly enough.  I encourage you energy drink/soda...drinkers to cut it out, and replace all that poison with pure clean water!  You will be happy you did in the long run! 
There are three lies about food that I want to focus on, because these are the lies I believed and were making my body sick! 

Lie #1:  I was taught and believed that I needed to eat meat to get the proper protein.  That is a blatant lie!   There are so many vegetables and other plant based foods...that you can get your daily protein intake from, plus so many added benefits that you don't get from meat/eggs.   
Lie #2:  I was taught and believed that I had to drink milk and eat cheese/diary products everyday to get the proper calcium.  Another blatant lie!  There are plenty of vegetables, fruits...that you can get your calcium from with the added benefits that you don't get with milk/dairy products.   I no longer drink milk, I drink Almond Milk, and rarely eat cheese.  These changes have been vital for my body; many ill symptoms in my body have ceased, especially in my stomach/gut!

Lie #3:  I was taught and believed that I had to eat fish at least twice/three times a week in order to get Omega 3...another blatant lie!  You can get the proper healthy Omega 3 and others by eating flax seed with your foods and or flax seed oil, and other plant based foods...without the unhealthy levels of mercury...from fish.
I can go on and on about all I have learned, and the changes I have made, however I encourage everyone reading this blog to please take charge of your own health.  Do your own research and begin to educate yourself, and do what is right for you and future generations. 
Another vital change in my lifestyle has been incorporating daily exercise.  Exercise is a must to keep your body strong, and don't let anyone or any quick results gimmick tell you otherwise.  Find what you enjoy and switch it up so it doesn't become monotonous.  

My tip for you is:  Listen to your favorite music and workout outdoors when possible.  Music gets your soul pumped up and ready to go, and the sun/fresh air gives you revitalizing energy!

The bi-product and beauty of my healthy eating habit changes is becoming a part of a rapidly growing group of people who care about, and love animals.  I had no idea of the cruel/inhumane treatment animals suffer, or the inhumane conditions they are forced to live in at the hands of cold hearted people, whose bottom line is the dollar, and not the welfare of the animals they abuse and kill.  This information came as I began to do more research on where my meats-food was coming from. I was shocked and disgusted to say the least, and I simply don't understand how or why the owners and employees...of meat companies-farms/dairies/chickens/fish...are allowed to do so!  It has to stop!

My ultimate goal is to live the Vegan lifestyle, which I am very close to, as I continue to educate myself and learn.  This has been an amazing journey so far, and I am so blessed and excited to share my success with you, and let you know that it is possible to reverse bad health to good health if you do the work, and make the right healthy changes.  I am in the toddler stages of this new lifestyle and have so much more to learn and experience.  I will continue to share my progress, experiences, passion, and compassion with you all. 

Please consider a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, or simply start by cutting back on eating the amount of any type of meat.  This is how I started my vegetarian/vegan journey.  Not only will you be helping animals from painful/cruel death and abuse, but your health and energy will drastically improve.  You will be amazed at the huge selection of recipes, and the delicious pure flavors you will enjoy with these foods! You can get really creative and allow your culinary self to rise up and create! The one huge change in my body, that I noticed early on, was that my taste buds drastically changed as I retrained them to appreciate natural/wholesome/life giving foods; the way they are supposed to taste.  Everything else, the jacked up foods with chemicals, artificial coloring, frozen drive-thru pre-made fast foods (even big named chain restaurants serve frozen high sodium pre-made foods--Don't be fooled) just don't cut it anymore!  My body and taste buds crave healthy goodness and they know the difference!

I pray this blog will encourage you to make the needed changes that will help your health in every way.  "CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST" and together you can come up with a good, healthy, and safe plan for you to begin your journey toward a healthier happier lifestyle, while saving precious lives, and making a difference for the environment.

God's Blessings in Plain View - Don't miss them!

God's Blessings in Plain View
Don't miss them!

by:  Mary Jean Marquez

I went on my usual four mile power walk this morning, full of high energy and ready to get a good workout while thoroughly enjoying the outdoors, and my Country Music on Pandora.  My neighborhood is amazingly beautiful in farm areas, full of life and color in every way.  The aromas of honey suckle, jasmine and so many other plants/flowers fill the air with sweetness.  I call it my "personal aroma therapy globe".  The sounds of the various birds in the area sing so skillfully, the ducks calmly swimming in the canals, I get to enjoy watching the majestic horses peacefully enjoy their day, and the chickens go about their busy calm ways...So, suffice to say, my walks are truly heavenly!

At one point in my walk there was a gorgeous Monarch Butterfly boldly resting on a wrought iron fence, waving it's beautiful bright colored wings, and peacefully enjoying the warm morning sun without a care.  I almost just passed by without stopping to enjoy that beautiful moment of blessing that God placed in my path, because my mind was thinking on some things happening in this season of my life.   Right as I passed it, I stopped, backed up to stare/marvel at it's beauty, and as I did a peace came over me. I felt as if God placed that blessing in front of me so that I could STOP and FOCUS on His beauty, and presence in my life.  He began to remind me of His goodness and care for me in His Word.  Just as He cares and provides for this beautiful Monarch Butterfly, He cares and provides for me.

As I took that moment to really focus on God and His goodness in my life, all the heavy thinking I was doing disappeared, and replaced with His joy, peace, and a knowing that everything is going to be okay.  God's got my back, and He has yours!

It is easy for us to get so busy and thinking the wrong way, that we miss God's Blessings.  I honestly feel that God places blessings in plain view for us on a daily basis, but we miss them because we are so preoccupied with things that we should be casting upon Him in the first place.

Train yourself to daily, on purpose, look out for God's blessings in your life.  Sometimes He will bless you by placing a beautiful Monarch Butterfly in your path so you can STOP, and FOCUS on God's Word of blessing and hope, letting you know that all is okay, and He has got your back, just like He did for me.

Don't miss your blessings! They are in Plain View everyday!  Be blessing minded!

God bless you always and keep going strong!

Be Progressive Minded By: Mary Jean Marquez

Be Progressive Minded
By:  Mary Jean Marquez

God is a progressive God and since we are made in His image (Genesis 1:27), we have that creative progressive gusto and energy in us.  Don't allow yourself to stay stagnant in life, no matter what your age or circumstance.  Always keep yourself active in your passions, planning for your next step in achieving your dreams.  Don't put yourself, or allow others, to put you in a contained box that limits your life.  

When you reach those milestones of success, enjoy and celebrate but don't stay there too long.  Make sure you have a plan to start working toward the next success.  So many people are stuck in their past successes talking and living it in their minds as if it happened yesterday.  These people are not progressive minded.  Every success should be a stepping stone to the next one.

If and when you fail, learn from it, get back up and go at it again with a good attitude, with a progressive mind set, and you will be amazed blessed at how God will meet you there.  I always share with people that life to me is like a chess game.  When I make my move, God will in turn make His move! 

Part of living a successful progressive life is embracing the fact that change is inevitable.  Without change it is impossible to move forward.  One great example of that is technology.  Technology is changing on a daily basis, and if we are not flexible to the changes and to learning new information, we will be left behind in a rut of confusion, and in a lost backward state.  We will become detached and unaware of the amazing possibilities that would catapult our lives to the next level.  

Another example, at a more personal level, is marriage/relationships.  It is so easy to stay stuck in old attitudes and ways of doing things, and if allowed to happen, people will naturally grow apart; finding that they no longer have much in common or enjoy each others company.  Most people are instinctively drawn to being progressive in life, and when one of the partners in a marriage or friendship fights change, choosing to stay stagnant in their old ways, while the other is being progressive in their lives, what will happen is one outgrows the other, causing dissatisfaction along with other ill feelings.  Don't let this happen.

Embrace good change and grow with each other! 
Be genuinely happy and encouraging of each others progressive growth!  
Be flexible and open minded! 
Allow each other space when needed!
Enjoy sharing your journeys together while having some FUN along the way!

When you remain progressive minded and doing what is necessary, you will be well able to answer the knock of opportunity when it comes knocking at your door.  Know that your unique life's journey has been preparation for the next progressive step toward your future and you can do ALL things through Christ who is your strength (Philippians 4:13).  

Here is a list to keep in mind on your quest to being progressive minded.  Feel free to add your own.

*  Be progressive in your spiritual growth
*  Be progressive in your mental/personal growth
*  Be progressive in your health/physical
*  Be progressive in your marriage/friendships
*  Be progressive in your home
*  Be progressive in your business
*  Be progressive at your job
*  Be progressive in your finances
*  Be progressive in raising your children
*  Be progressive in your ministry
*  Be progressive in your passion(s) Dream(s)
*  Be progressive in having fun and enjoying life

Don't take people or time for granted!  

Enjoy life today-Now!

Embrace good change!

Be Progressive Minded in every area of life!

Wishing every reader the best life has to offer.  Go for it!

Move Your Life Forward by Taking Personal Responsiblity by: Mary Jean Marquez

Move Your Life Forward
by Taking Personal Responsibility
by:  Mary Jean Marquez


I share some of my life on this Blog post that is riddled with  "Tough Love" because I care! My desire for everyone reading this is that you would read through humble eyes, hearts, and make the changes necessary to move your life forward.  Sometimes it's hard to admit to wrong behavior and mind sets, but when you recognize, admit and take responsibility for them, you give yourself a chance at a better life.  Denial and stubbornness gets you nowhere!

I realize that sometimes people don't know how to get out of bad habits and wrong thinking after years of living with negative attitudes and thinking, so I would like to share how God helped me.  It's like starting a new job.  I always say people don't know what they don't know, and require proper training or re-training.  Open yourself up to renewing your mind, replacing the old habits and thinking that are getting you nowhere, to a better way that will help move your life forward.  
The following scripture has helped me so much, and I know will help you  "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."  (Romans 12:2 NIV)

There are too many people out there who are playing the blame game, making excuses and not taking personal responsibility for themselves; resulting in stagnant lives that that are filled with self pity.  This behavior cheats people out of, what could be, amazing lives.  No matter what has happened in your life, know that you can live a happy and successful life.  I don't make light of the fact that people have been through some hard experiences in life, but I also know that God can help people heal and move forward if they desire to, like He did for me.  It's your choice!

I personally got tired of being miserable and playing the blame game.  It got me nowhere except depressed, and hopeless by choice.  When I understood that I had to take responsibility for myself and make major changes in my thinking and behavior/habits, my life began an amazingly beautiful transformation.  I began to seek God like never before and he showed me how to get out of that crazy cycle.  It wasn't overnight, but I remained dedicated and focused on my goals to change myself. 

It took humbling myself and telling God that I didn't know where to begin or what to do, and the following scripture was given to me "If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him; he will not resent it. (James 1:5 TLB).  The same goes for you.  Ask God for wisdom and He will begin to show and lead you.  

The first thing God helped me with was learning to forgive.  I was harboring un-forgiveness deep within my heart which had me bound in so many ways; it made me ill.  I did not realize that it had rooted itself within me in the form of hatred and bitterness, causing the manifestation of anger and rage.  God knew that it was imperative for me to deal with the un-forgiveness first so that I could heal and move forward in my life.  When I did forgive those who abused, harmed and abandoned me as a child, I was set free in every area of my life, and I was also able to forgive myself for wrong doing as well and move forward.  My life has been brighter and happier ever since. 

I can safely say that everyone has been wronged/harmed, offended and sinned against in some way and point in life, so I encourage you to please set yourself free and forgive.  Allow yourself to heal and be well! When you extend forgiveness, God will forgive you of your trespasses "For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (Matthew 6: 14-15)

Every human being is responsible for His/Her life.  God blesses you with life, and it is up to you to live it the best you know how.  Sometimes life hands you lemons, but you can decide to make sweet lemonade.  Get real with yourself and let go of those things that hold you back.  The following scripture guides you perfectly "Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life." (Galatians 6:5 MSG)

To sum it all up, there comes a time in life when you have to stop making excuses, stop playing the blame game, take responsibility for yourself, no matter what has happened in your life, move forward leaving the past where it belongs, in the past!  Make the decision to get rid of old childish thinking and behaving.  God boldly and clearly instructs you in the following scripture to put away childish living "It’s like this: when I was a child I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child does. But when I became a man my thoughts grew far beyond those of my childhood, and now I have put away the childish things." (1 Corinthians 13:11 TLB)
I want you to know and realize how amazingly awesome you are. God made you to be more than a conqueror, so rise up, take responsibility for your life, and make things happen.  Make the positive and lasting changes necessary to move forward.  Allow yourself to let go of the past and heal from the inside out.  God bless you always!

"Is anything too hard for me?"

"Is anything too hard for me?"
by:  Mary Jean Marquez  

As I prayed this morning for a woman who is a military wife and mother, currently living over seas  struggling with serious health issues, the following question resonated  strongly and sternly within my spirit.  "Is anything too hard for me?"  I immediately stopped and opened my eyes and listened.  I know my God's voice and that was His voice.  It doesn't always happen this way for me in my prayer time, but I get so happy and excited when He speaks to me this way! So, my answer was, "No Father God, nothing is too hard for you!" and by the Stripes of Jesus this woman is healed and made whole in Jesus Name! 

I had to immediately write all of this down as I know this is a word in season for many as well as for myself.  He reminded me of who He is in the lives of His children-our lives.  Thank you my Heavenly Father God! 

What is it that you are facing today that seems overwhelming and out of reach?  

Well, I have to tell you that nothing is too hard for God (Jeremiah 32:27).  He has already paid the price for your full redemption through the precious shed blood of Jesus on the cross.  God is telling you that He loves you so much that He gave His only begotten son so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life (John 3:16), and He desires that you prosper, be in health, even as your soul [mind, will, emotions] prospers (3 John 1:2).  That means that He wants you to prosper in every area of life, and has made the provision for it all!  He is your everything!

Healing is yours (Isaiah 53: 5)
Prosperity is yours (Philippians 4:19)
Peace is yours (John 14:27)
Joy is yours (Nehemiah 8:10)
Deliverance is yours (2 Timothy 4:18) 
Power is yours (Luke 10:19)
Love and acceptance is yours (John 3:16)
Faith is yours (Romans 12:3)
Favor is yours (Proverbs 3:4)
and so much more...Search in God's Word!

He has already given you all you need to live happy and healthy in every area of life.  You live under a new covenant of blessing and redemption because of  Jesus sacrifice on the cross.  He died and was risen again just for you.  Believe and receive that redemption and provision.  All of God's promises are yes and amen through Christ Jesus to those who will believe! No promise is too hard for God (2 Corinthians 1:20). 

God says that He is the great "I Am" in your life (Exodus 3).  To help encourage you further, Here are the names of who He is in your life.  Study them and pray them over your life and family.

If you are struggling with health issues, pray "Thank you my Heavenly Father God that you are Jehovah Rapha my healer, therefore I am the healed and made whole of the Lord! In Jesus Name!

If you are struggling financially, pray "Thank you my Heavenly Father God that you are Jehovah Jireh my provider, therefore my every need is met abundantly."  In Jesus Name!
