When God responds - Psalm 91:14-15

June 5, 2011 
Psalm 91:14 The Lord says, "Whoever loves me, I will save. I will protect those who know me. 15 They will call to me, and I will answer them. I will be with them in trouble; I will rescue them and honor them.

My Mother is very ill. She has had a tough weekend. On Friday night, we didn’t know if she was going to make it. Saturday was another tough day. Today, it all turned around.  Earlier in the day, my brother said she wasn’t improving.  But when I walked into the Intensive Care Unit everything had turned around. She was fully awake and responsive. Even her nurse said that she had improved greatly over the last few hours.

I feel great peace because I know that this was another favor from God. His hand is on this journey and I know it. I know the following things for sure:
  • I love God and I spend quality time getting to know him
  • I have invested time in reading and understanding the Bible, so I can know his heart
  • Knowing where to go in the Bible to get God’s life messages for me has opened up my communication and intimacy with him
  • The end result is that I know God and I have a vibrant relationship with him
  • Because I know God, I know when he directly impacts my life
Only God knows my mother’s journey.  I believe he wanted me to trust him to leave that burden in his hands. I typically want to control everything. God handles things just fine. He doesn’t need any help from me. He just wants me to be passionate about him and share that passion with others.

In Psalm 91:15 God says that he will answer when we call him during our times of trouble. The only prerequisites are that we must love and know him. When you know God, you will be passionate about him! I am far from perfect, but God knows my heart. I can count on him! Oh, I love my Jesus!

Thank you, Lord!

These are a few of my favorite Scriptures. I cannot live my life without God and his word. I keep a 3x5 wire bound note diary of verses that pop off the pages of my Bibles. This helps me in case I need to comfort someone with a specific verse. Start your own collection!

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…
