My Divine Note: The surrendered life - 1 John 4:17 (GW)

July 28, 2011 1 John 4:17 (GW)
17 God's love has reached its goal in us. So we look ahead with confidence to the day of judgment. While we are in this world, we are exactly like him {with regard to love}.


When the love of my Lord Jesus Christ shook up my life, important things changed: I stopped being afraid of dying because I was afraid of God’s judgment, and I learned about unconditional love.

I want to go the distance with God. I will take the sad, hard times and enjoy life at the top of the mountain while I live on earth – but I see eternity and God in his glory.

While I’m on earth, I want to live the surrendered life wholly dependent on the deep and enveloping love of Christ. I also want his love to live through me.

I can see Him now.

    For human beings, give yourself is very difficult, but when we let God take care of our life, everything is easier.
    Grace and peace!

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

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…
