My Divine Notes - Don’t be afraid, trust me. Mark 5:37

March 26, 2012

Mark 5:37 Jesus ignored their comments and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just trust me.”
A stirring in my soul points to my greater need for the Lord’s presence. I need God. I need God so much. There isn’t a new crisis to report. Things are as stable as they can be right now, and my soul yearns for a deeper walk with God.
I feel as if I’ve graduated to the next level, but that level requires total surrender…commitment. My walk with God has taken new turns, new twists, and new flavors – all very different from what I thought possible. Not that I would put God in a “possible” box. 
·        The things I thought possible or what I thought I wanted are no longer important.

·        The walk with God is more intense, more lovingly demanding. I don’t always want to go.

·        The things I thought I knew for sure are not for sure.

·        I know that I don’t know.
Only God knows. It’s all exciting.
Stay tuned.

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!
