My Divine Note: Stay in today - Matthew 6:34 (GW)

July 21, 2011 
Matthew 6:34 (GW) Jesus said,  “So don't ever worry about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

This Scripture rocks my brain. I’m one of those creative strategists who attempts to control life even when I know better because God has curtailed that tendency.  Can’t even begin to tell you how many moments, situations and opportunities have slipped through my hands because I was racing ahead to the next steps, imaginations or plans instead of savoring the moments that make memories.
I quote this Scripture in my ministries all the time, so I’m taking it to heart that it jumped out at me during a time when I’m in somewhat humble obedience. You see, I am learning to be in the moment when I am with my terminally-ill mother. For the first time, I don’t have a schedule of things I must get done or meetings/events to attend – all my extra time is spent with her.
I’ve learned to open the shades and watch the rain with Mom. I freshen up her face and tell her she’s gorgeous and that I’m glad that God knit me her womb. I talk to her about the daily details of my life, so she can have a connection with the land of the living. I’ve learned to spend hours just sitting by her bedside, reading Scripture, looking into her eyes and telling her how much I love her. I appreciate all of her awake moments!
Make the most of today. The next time you start to worry remember that Jesus said to leave tomorrow alone.

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!
