Fish can’t live without water – You can’t live without God - Ecclesiastes 3:11 (GW)

July 4, 2011
Ecclesiastes 3:11 (GW)
11 It is beautiful how God has done everything at the right time. He has put a sense of eternity in people's minds. Yet, mortals still can't grasp what God is doing from the beginning to the end {of time}.
Read my bio on Twitter - @BlancaV - and you will find out that I love Jesus. I’m on Twitter to talk about how the Lord finally caught me in his arms after I insisted on living the life of a fish out of water. It’s hard to live outside of water if you were made to swim in the ocean with the big fish. J
I never try to persuade anyone to see things my way nor am I out there bashing religion or trying to convert people [God does that]. That’s not my gifting. I’m out there to tweet Scripture as I’m inspired by the Holy Spirit and to tell all how God “put me back in the ocean” where I belong.  I am also an encourager and a pastoral caregiver – those are gifts from God that I use to help others.
I don’t have a world view anymore nor do I try to get everyone to like me, but I am very nice about it. I simply tell it like it is – how the Lord changed my life. I don’t try to talk to those who don’t believe, but they always seem to find my I love Jesus Tweets. I’m always fascinated by the responses I get from those who call themselves atheists or agnostics and those who bash religion. 
I have a news flash for them: You have God’s handprint in your DNA and he is relentless in his pursuit for you – no matter how you feel. God doesn’t want you flipping and flopping out and about – he wants you back in the ocean where you belong – with the big fish doing the things you were created to do.
I’m just the messenger. J Don’t hate me.

Scriptures for life

Compiled December 2011
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!


Comfort

Psalm 119:76 Comfort me with your love, as you promised me, your servant.
Job 4:4 Your words have comforted those who fell, and you have strengthened those who could not stand.
Strength

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…
