My Divine Note #11-01 – Wearing your blessings well


Psalm 35:27 (CEV) Let all who want me to win be happy and joyful. From now on let them say, "The LORD is wonderful! God is glad when all goes well for his servant."

I started off 2011 praising and worshipping my awesome God. The Lord has done amazing things in my life and I have made a vow to never down play them and to make sure that I give God credit for everything that he has done for me and my family.

For in giving God credit, I learn to discern his hand in my life and I also encourage and influence others to believe in his great and mighty power. Giving God credit means I appreciate and acknowledge his goodness for the blessings he has bestowed on me. As Pastor Joel Osteen said, “Wear your blessings well and realize that God owns it all.”

When we give God credit for every part of our lives, it’s possible to have an abundant mentality. Choose to expand your vision for yourself because God wants everything to go well for you.


Thanks to Pastors Joel and Victoria Osteen of Lakewood Church for loving God and inspiring their congregation to acknowledge the goodness of God. Each time I visit Lakewood, I imagine how it will be in heaven: lots of people worshipping in truth.

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…
