More From Andrea Ramírez Zabala

May 6, 2019 by Andrea Ramírez Zabala (Puerto Rico)

About seven years ago I accepted Christ as my Savior. Ever since, a woman from my congregation has made sure that I receive copies of El Aposento Alto, and I have become a faithful reader. It is moving to read each meditation based on an experience of someone living in another part of the world. I also enjoy the fact that together, through the daily devotional guide, we can pray for the needs of others.

Even though I have had many experiences, I never thought about writing and submitting a meditation until my encounter with the bees. I then understood that this experience might be helpful not only to the church, but also to families or anyone in our society who desires to live in harmony.  

When I emailed the meditation, I thought it had not been received by El Aposento Alto office staff. I tried to resend it but for some reason I could not access the email address. So, I was greatly surprised when I received a notice that my meditation had been accepted and would be published in the May/June 2019 issue of El Aposento Alto.  

Today I am motivated to continue to share my experiences and help others in their faith journey. I am currently working on my next meditation. God is working for my good, and my prayer is that God will guide me and my family each day.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
