Divine Note #37 - Life just doesn’t work until Jesus is #1 in your life - Isaiah 65:24

Divine Note #37 – September 14, 2009

Life just doesn’t work until Jesus is #1 in your life - Isaiah 65:24
I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking to me about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
This Divine Note goes out to lift anyone who reads it and needs to feel peace and joy in their life. I was blown away by Pastor Paul’s sermon on A Man Named Jesus and the title of this note is taken from one of his quotes. I’ve often thought how brilliant of God to become human so that we could relate to Him on our own level. There’s no other religion or god on our planet that compares to Christianity because we have Christ who knows what we feel before we even say it. He knows how happy, sad or indifferent our day is before we even say a word. He’s been there through every sad and happy moment of our lives.

Lately I’ve been talking about how wonderful it is to walk with God in the good times because we can bet that we will want to walk with Him in the not-so-good times! Are you walking in His power and in His will every day?

How does it look like when you make God the priority in your life?If you are married or in a relationship, do you remember how you behaved around your loved one when you initially fell in love? You did everything possible to please them. It’s the same with God.

· You must give Him first place in your life (above spouse, children, job, etc)
· It means communicating with Him all the time!
· It’s my opinion that you need sustained quiet time with Him
· You must read the Bible (I sound like a broken CD)
· You also must learn how to listen to what He is saying to you.

Dear Father,
I thank you for every day of my life! Thank you for giving me the desire to serve you! I just want to thank you and praise you for being such a super sweet God! I’m not asking for anything this time! I just want to give you a BIG BLANCA HUG for loving me so much! Thank you for all the people you’ve placed in my life. Just thanks for being you, Lord! Love you so much! Always!

There’s no love like the love of Jesus Christ! Amen! Be Blessed!
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…

America will never be normal

Nothing stops real love!

Romans 8:38-39 For I have every confidence that nothing—not death, life, heavenly messengers, dark spirits, the present, the future, spiritual powers, height, depth, nor any created thing—can come between us and the love of God revealed in the Anointed, Jesus our Lord. 

Feelings can lead us down torturous paths. Next time you face a daunting crisis whether it's in your mind or real --stop. 
Remember that nothing stops the love of Jesus. 
It's yours free! 
There's nothing you did to earn it! And it will not be withdrawn from you! 
 It's called GRACE! 


"We may feel at times that God has departed us from us, but that is when we have to believe his Word rather than our feelings." ~ RC Sproul
