In Mexico, one gets used to living in an environment of insecurity and fear, but despite these social circumstances or the enemies who want to make us fall, we must trust in the security, certainty, and care of our Lord.
I remember my father, who suddenly had to be hospitalized on 24 December for abdominal pain. We never imagined it would be as serious as stomach cancer. Despite the diagnosis, we remained confident in God, praying. However, surprisingly, my father died of a heart attack due to the wear he suffered during his hospitalization.
In spite of this, God was faithful and made us see “we should not fear” because He became our security and prevented us from falling into depression and anxiety with lack of peace.
Lord, I give you my insecurities and afflictions. You will not let me fall.

Being a part of Haggai was one of the best experiences in my life. I learned my life must be a testimony of God’s love at every moment.
