En Los Montes de Grandes Problemas


¡Qué difícil es la vida! Los momentos obscuros son dibujos de noches largas que parecen interminables. “Todo es vanidad”, nos dijo aquel hombre sabio. Nos pasamos nuestras vidas experimentando en el juego de la búsqueda de la felicidad. Pretendemos sonrisas, expresamos que estamos bien, más la putrefacción de nuestras almas es evidente en nuestros lugares secretos cuando nos quitamos las máscaras de nuestra pretensión.

Tratamos de llenar nuestras vidas con relaciones, con trabajos, con dinero, con propiedades, con fiestas, substancias ilícitas y pretensiones sociales. Mas al final de cuentas, la tristeza se encarga fielmente de abrazar nuestras mentes. Al final de cuentas, la depresión se sienta en nuestras salas y la soledad se hace amiga de nuestros silencios. Éstos se convierten en una familia grotesca de la cual tenemos que escapar, pues su objetivo final es destructor y falto de misericordia.

Nada ha podido, puede ni podrá nunca satisfacer nuestras almas. Siempre quedarán huecos de dolor y miseria que nada ni nadie pueden llenar. Todo lo que toma el lugar de Dios es llamado ídolo y todo ídolo se mostrará inservible y destinado a la decepción. Solo Dios puede llenar nuestras almas de esperanza, de gozo, de vida y de luz. En los montes de grandes problemas, en los desiertos de lo imposible y en los valles de la incertidumbre, existe un Dios bueno que nos dice a puro grito:

Sólo yo sé los planes que tengo para ustedes. Son planes para su bien, y no para su mal, para que tengan un futuro lleno de esperanza.”

—Palabra del Señor. Jeremías 29:11 (RVC)

An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992.

After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog.

In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing.
