The God whose heart I love - Romans 11:33

May 3, 2011

Romans 11:33 God’s riches, wisdom, and knowledge are so deep that it is impossible to explain his decisions or to understand his ways.

Deep in the valley or high on the mountaintop, one thing is certain: God is in control of each and every moment. Capture and savor glimpses of God in daily life, so you can overcome struggles of sin or disobedience. As the writer Oswald Chambers said, we can’t live a consistent Christian life if we live for the moments when we are in deep communion with the Holy Spirit.

There are some days… Today was one of those days when I wondered why I am on the walk, if I’m never going to overcome the things that trap and keep me captive. But then I look to the God whose heart I love, and I find peace because he really does know me.

He knows my struggles, he knows my joys and he knows that I intend to stay connected to him. I can’t explain his extravagant love and grace, but I know his wisdom has touched me and one thing is sure: He knows me. ♥

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…
