The top 10 things I know about God - Psalm 118:14

April 30, 2011

Psalm 118:14 The LORD is my strength and my song. He is my savior.

On May 2, 2011 I celebrate five years since the Lord changed my life. As I look back, I realize that these have been the most on-purpose and fulfilling years of my existence. I will be recording the journey in a detailed way so that I will always remember the things God has done for my family, but I want to share the following things that I know for sure.

1. I am not the person I was

2. I have unshakable peace through storms

3. God is real; God is personal

4. God wants to know our hearts and he wants to share his heart with us, consequently Bible study and sharing with believers is vital

5. God eases us into the journey with him

6. If we are serious about passionately serving him, God will make radical changes in us – it’s called sanctification and it’s not easy

7. God will clean up the hurts of our lives so we can be effective in representing him

8. Expect conflict, your own sin nature rearing its ugly head and intense spiritual warfare. He will help us get up and stay connected to him if we're passionate and real with him

9. Our agenda (personal, professional, ministry) will be radically changed to conform to his plans

10. Surrendering ourselves to God’s will is the ultimate sign of strength and not weakness

Words cannot thank the Savior of my soul for all he has done in my life.

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…
