I am thankful that I don’t have to know everything – Isaiah 55:8-9

Isaiah 55:8-9 (GW)
8 “My thoughts are not your thoughts, and my ways are not your ways,” declares the LORD.
9 “Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts.”


There is something peaceful in knowing that God is in control and that I, Blanca, don’t have to know it all. Our culture operates with a need to know urgency. The more you know, the faster you know it, the more successful you are considered. For those of us with personalities that are naturally curious, well, it’s a 24-hour race to want to know who, what, why and how -- and to know it first.
Knowing God changed that for me. Sure I ask why, but now I am certain that there are things God may not want me to know in this life. I state this because he has already shaken up my world by letting me know the things that I do need to know, that I preferred to ignore.
My prayer is that you get to have an intimate relationship with the Lord, so that you can be the light for those around you who are suffering more than you ever will -- and who need to know the Lord.
Personal peace regardless of your circumstances is also a huge gift that God gives to those who depend on him.
God will give you the knowledge you need and help you relax, so that you can have the life planned for you.
Ask the Holy Spirit to give you the knowledge you need – not the knowledge you want.
Thank you, 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…
