It’s all about your personal relationship with Jesus – John 3:12-15

Divine Note #1 - Monday, Jan. 5, 2009

Many people who lived when Jesus was on Earth had a hard time believing that He was the Son of God. Jesus understood it and in John 3:12-15, He tells Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews, that unless he believed that it would be impossible for the Jewish leader to understand “heavenly things.”

As Christians today, we have divine revelation through the Bible and through our relationship with the Holy Spirit of God. I believe that Jesus reveals his purpose for our lives when we surrender our plans to his will. But many of us refuse to allow him to take control of our stressful, busy and hurting lives.

It’s all about relationships
Join with me this year and make your relationship with Jesus the top priority in your life, Philippians 3:10. I believe that if I fulfill his purpose for my existence that it will strengthen the relationships in my life that need healing.

  • Decide to spend time with God. Pray. Listen. Be quiet. Take action.
  • Do what God asks you to do. When you do what he asks, it becomes an anointing for you. Take it from me, get off the couch and just do it!
  • Decide to heal your relationship with yourself. He loves you. Believe it.
  • Make sure your relationships are real. God puts you with people to give back to them. He made us to be interconnected with each other.
I have so much work to do; I hope you will join me so our lives can have the significance that God envisioned for us.

Houston - we have a problem
I confess that before the 2016 presidential election, I wasn’t interested or concerned about participating in government or politics.  
That changed on Nov. 8, 2016.  
It’s now painfully clear how important it is to know what our elected politicians are doing on local, state and national levels. It’s time to shake ourselves out of complacency. We must be involved in directing our basic American rights, our policing, our healthcare, our financial lives and more. Our families depend on us.
The best way to do this is to get to know your elected officials and to vote.
Consider running for office or supporting someone you think has the gifts to be a politician. Our families are in crisis, our healthcare is in crisis, immigrant families are in danger and law enforcement may not be serving the interests of people of color   We need people who serve the interests of the majority of our communities
These are my recommendations: Get together with your family, friends and…
