The incredible greatness of his power

Written March 21, 2012
Ephesians 1:19 (GW) You will also know the unlimited greatness of his power as it works with might and strength for us, the believers.
A few days ago, I realized that God answers my most pressing questions in such a loving way so that I can understand. He reduced me to grateful tears. It was such a tender moment. It was an unexpected moment that opened my eyes to his love. I had been wrestling with a situation for a while.
Those who have children understand how kids can be relentless in their pursuit of things they really want. That describes my relationship with the Lord. There are a few wishes I have that are not becoming reality. God knows my history, my desires and my gifting. He desires that I understand and accept things about myself, so that I can move on. In responding to me, He set the record straight so that I understood the benefits of his decision.
I was unable to struggle because he touched the very core of who I am. You see, only God knows your real heart. When you allow God to know the real you, it becomes impossible to struggle. Instead, when you listen to God, you come to understand yourself. All I could do was cry like a child. I finally listened to and understood what the Lord wanted me to know.
I have peace and I feel happier knowing God’s heart. After all, I am a woman after his heart.

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…
