My Divine Note: No one but Jesus Matthew 17:8


Matthew 17:8 As they raised their heads, they saw no one but Jesus.
My life is full of very good distractions (along with some not so good ones). I have to be careful to not let any of my distractions get in the way of my personal relationship with Jesus. I have to focus on my intimacy with Jesus.
We hear much about the bad distractions, but good distractions also have a way of knocking us out of sync with God. They block our ability to focus on Jesus in a one-to-one relationship. I’m not going to name any good distractions because they can be anything that stops you from hearing God’s voice.
We may not even be aware of those things that stop us from listening to the voice of God. I challenge you to stop what you are doing, step back and check to make sure you are listening to his voice.
Can you see and hear Jesus?

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…

America will never be normal

Nothing stops real love!

Romans 8:38-39 For I have every confidence that nothing—not death, life, heavenly messengers, dark spirits, the present, the future, spiritual powers, height, depth, nor any created thing—can come between us and the love of God revealed in the Anointed, Jesus our Lord. 

Feelings can lead us down torturous paths. Next time you face a daunting crisis whether it's in your mind or real --stop. 
Remember that nothing stops the love of Jesus. 
It's yours free! 
There's nothing you did to earn it! And it will not be withdrawn from you! 
 It's called GRACE!
