Hello! I’m Lena. Welcome to my writing website and higher calling—to carry the message of hope, healing, and recovery. I was a depressed, lost soul, and through the help of others, I found a new model of living that has profoundly changed my life for the better. I am indebted to those who guided me and were driven to pay it forward. The purpose of this space is to encourage others to look within, to help those suffering from loneliness, restlessness, and discontent, and to aid those struggling with anxiety, anger, fear, depression, addiction, trauma, mental illness, and suicidal ideation. I believe that when we honestly look at our behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and belief systems—and work with them—we can alleviate the causes of our suffering and bring joy and happiness.


Book of Romans

I read the Book of Romans twice, yet I still haven’t memorized everything, but I love documenting all Bible verses. I can always go back to this post and keep reading it repeatedly. I have many questions, so I hope my spiritual mentor, who reads this, can help, give me her perspective, and share her teaching. As I read, I sat under the Word of God, not stand over it. I was reading every text in the book’s flow. The Book of Romans tells us about God, who He is, and what He has done. It tells us of Jesus Christ and what His death accomplished. It was not an easy book, and I tried to understand it. I wrote down all the verses I liked based on everything I read in the Book Of Romans. I highlighted it in the Bible, too. Writing this blog is for me to read, reflect, share, and discuss it with my pastor so she can explain each verse. I like so many verses, and I will quote them all down. IT’S SO AMAZING! All these verses in the Book of Romans resonated with me profoundly. I have my eyes opened by the Holy Spirit to understand what is written. As God’s Word to his people, anyone can read and understand the Bible. This is not to say such reading and understanding are easy, but I am beginning to understand more! My heart is spiritually alive! I feel like I am born again by the Spirit of God.


Romans 1:7-12 “Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you because your faith is being reported worldwide. God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness. How constantly I always remember you in my prayers, and I pray that now, by God’s will, the way may be opened for me to come to you. I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to make you strong– that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.”

Romans 2:5-7 “But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God will repay each person according to what they have done. To those who by persistence in doing good seek eternal life.”

Romans 3:25 “God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood–to be received by faith….”

Romans 4:21 ” ….God had the power to do what he promised.”

Romans 4:25 “He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.”

Romans 5:1-5 “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. We also glory in our sufferings because suffering produces perseverance, character, character, and hope. And hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

Romans “Death Through Adam, Life Through Christ”

Romans 6:8-10 “Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once and for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.”

Romans 6:22 “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, resulting in eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 7:21 “So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. I delight in God’s law, but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I am a slave to the law of sin.”

Romans 8:6-9 ” The mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. This mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you.”

Romans 8:14-16 “For those whom the Spirit of God leads are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not enslave you to live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him, we cry, Father. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.”

Romans 8:20-21 “For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in the hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.”

Romans 8:26-27 “….the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people by the will of God.”

Romans 8:34 “…..Christ Jesus who died — more than that, who was raised to life — is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”

Romans 9:19-21 “…For who can resist his will? But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, Why did you make me like this? Does not the potter have the right to make some pottery from the same lump of clay for special purposes and some for common use?”

Romans 10:3 “…they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.”

Romans 10:9-10 “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. With your heart, you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”

Romans 10:13 “…..Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Romans 12:1-2 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, given God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is our true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by renewing your mind. Then you can test and approve God’s will- his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”

Romans 12:6-17 “We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy by your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then encourage; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never lack zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud but be willing to associate with people of low positions. Do not be conceited. Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.”

Romans 12:18 “….live at peace with everyone.”

Romans 12:21 “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Romans 13:1 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. God has established the authorities that exist.”

Romans 14:8 “If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, we belong to the Lord, whether we live or die.”

Romans 14:13-14 “….make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister. Being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus, I am convinced that nothing is unclean in itself….”

Romans 14:16-18 “….do not let what you know is good be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval.”

Romans 15:3-4 “…The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me. Everything in the past was written to teach us so that we might have hope through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide.”

Romans 15:30 “….by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.”

Romans 16:17 “I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.”

Romans 16:20 “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The Grace of our Lord Jesus is with you.”
