Divine Note #40 - You have been chosen to make an eternal difference - Hebrews 1:9

Divine Note #40 – October 7, 2009

This series of Divine Notes is written in honor of the ladies in my Sunday school class, Women of the Word.

Psalms 45:6–7
6 God, your throne will last forever and ever.
You will rule your kingdom with fairness.
7 You love right and hate evil,
so God has chosen you from among your friends;
he has set you apart with much joy.

Hebrews 1:9
9 You love right and hate evil,
so God has chosen you from among your friends;
he has set you apart with much joy." —

Col. 3:17
17 Everything you do or say should be done to obey
Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to
God the Father through Jesus.

Dear Friends,
These days I find myself tuned into everyone around me, so that God can use me to bring a word of encouragement, hope or comfort to those who may need it. Most of the time I am called to a ministry of presence and listening. So many people are hurting and need for you and me to step out to let them know that God cares and that He is with them. I don’t know about you, but I know that the purpose or mission of my life is to inspire, encourage and introduce the life-changing love of Jesus Christ to young adults and to those who are ill. Since I’ve elected to use the powerful spiritual gifts that God has given me to represent Him, my entire life has changed. I am making an eternal difference for God and my life is oh – so sweet!

As I grow in the knowledge of God by spending quality time with Him, getting to know Him and reading the Bible, I find myself wanting to be the best person that I can be. As I desire to please Him, He endows me with gifts I didn’t even know I had, so that I can serve those around me. I am usually blown away by the way He asks me to step out of my comfort zone. Sure, I resist, but ultimately I have to say, “OK Lord, if you think I can do it, I can do it.” I’m also learning how to say I’m sorry when I offend others – this is very hard for me. I love the way He knows my real nature, so I can be myself. He loves me regardless of how I feel.

Because I am in this deep relationship with Him, I want everyone to share what I have. It’s hard to keep Him for myself. I pray that you will feel the same way. Are you using your spiritual gifts to make an eternal difference? Do you know the purpose of your life? Why are you on Earth? Ask God these questions. He wants you to know.

Dear Savior of my Soul,I ask you to touch every person reading this message. May they decide to step out and serve you. May they think beyond themselves and realize that as Christians, we are called to serve and introduce the people around us to you. Thank you for asking me to do my part only since I am not in charge of saving anyone because that’s your job. I am only called to encourage, to listen and to love others and to share my gifts with them. I love you Father. I ask that you give all those reading this message an extra measure of belief so they can leave the comfort of the comfort zone to make an eternal difference for those who don’t know you. I ask this in the mighty name of precious Jesus Christ. Amen. Love you Lord!

Ask God to show you what it is that you need to be doing while you are living. Don’t waste your allotted time on Earth! Make a difference now.
Big God Hugs,

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
