Your personal relationship with Jesus: “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.” – John 14:27

Divine Note #9 – March 2, 2009

The above verse is a direct quote from Jesus to His apostles and it continues, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” If the Creator of the universe said to His apostles and, thus to us, that we are to have peace and to not be troubled or afraid, why do many of us continue to live in personal captivity? I shared my personal story of how that Scripture was given to me by the Holy Spirit last week in midst of a tough day at work. I decided to trust God and I asked him directly to please help me. He did. I was also inspired to share it because everything that God shares with me is meant to help everyone I know.

The most important gift that my Lord has given me is personal peace. My life is so not perfect. In the natural, it’s really out of control. As a single parent, I should be worried and afraid for my child and my future, but I am not. I could chose not to forgive, feel guilty, think it’s too hard and feel like I can’t hold it together. Instead, I am choosing to place my trust in Him and I am choosing to share my testimony with others so that they can have what He has given me!

Life is a journey with many twists and turns that may include times of severe turmoil. What happens if you are going through troubled times and you:
· Are without a Savior?
· Haven’t talked with Him lately?
· Are going through a dry spell and are not feeling His presence?
· Feel that a prayer has not been answered?
· Are facing very difficult problems?
· Are dealing with a serious illness?
· Are dealing with strongholds that make you feel condemned?

Wherever you are on your journey, He is ready to meet you where you are if you ask Him to come into your heart. Whether you’ve never trusted Jesus as your personal Savior, if you are a lifelong Christian in need of a kiss from heaven or if you are still struggling with trusting God with your entire heart, HE IS READY TO RECEIVE YOU! But you must talk to Him and get to know Him. When you establish that relationship, the Bible becomes your guide to life. It works, please try it.

He promised never to desert you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). In Psalm 138:8, it’s stated that He will perfect everything concerning you. Stand on His promises and ask Him for what you need! In Mark 10:46-52, Jesus asked Bartimaeus what he wanted him to do! Take action because God doesn’t just meet our needs, He fulfills our desires if they are requests based on Scriptural promises, Psalm 37:4-7.

Finally, thank all of you for laying hands on and praying for my daughter, Jackie, who turns 18-years old today. Every parent wants their child to walk with God from childhood. I thank Him for allowing me to be her mother.

Have a week of big God Hugs, :)
Love,
Blanca

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…
