I am thankful for God's compassion – Psalm 103:8-11

11-11-11

Psalm 103

8 The Lord is tender and kind. He is gracious. He is slow to get angry. He is full of love.
9 He won't keep bringing charges against us. He won't stay angry with us forever.
10 He doesn't punish us for our sins as much as we should be punished. He doesn't pay us back in keeping with the evil things we've done.
11 His love for those who have respect for him is as high as the heavens are above the earth.

Many people who have book or religious knowledge of God tend to fear him. They may blame God for unanswered prayers. They may feel unworthy to go to him because they aren’t walking on the straight path. Some folks just don’t even know if they believe in God, but they hear that small, still voice in their hearts. That small, still voice tends to stay with us until we finally make that connection to God.

I want to assure you that God is a compassionate and loving father. There’s nothing that you have done (or failed to do) that he will not forgive. But the key is that you first must know him, so he can set you free. Don’t let your guilt, hang-ups or what other people might think of you from knowing God’s great love and compassion for you.

 No one cares about your life more than God. Seek his compassion and heart.

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…
