Reflecting on another year in my walk with the Lord - Isaiah 46:4

Me. Today.

Isaiah 46:4 (NLT)
I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.

I will carry you along and save you.

 
Today I’m celebrating with the Lord that I am a year older! What an honor it is to wake up with a mission each day!
As I thought and prayed about what I would write today, the Lord reminded me of my growth over the last year, which I’ll share…
· I may not understand God’s timing and reasons, but I can have peace.
 
· While I don’t have to understand God's reasons, I can ask questions.

· As I go deeper with God through spending time in His presence, reading the Bible and learning about His heart, I gain understanding.

· I will reap the consequences of doing things my way…no fun.
 

· I don’t have to go along with popular culture, but I do have to love those who choose life’s tough paths or who have different opinions.

· I will remember that Christ changes hearts, I provide the love.
 

· I will reflect Christ’s love in all I do.

· I will live my life in the power of the Holy Spirit. I cannot plan God’s work for me and expect Him to bless it.
 
· My relationship with Christ should be a priority in my life if I’m going to live out his commandments.
 

· I will live each day thankful for the ability to make a difference now – while having my heart fixed on eternity.
 
I’m also caring for myself so I can care for others during this season of my life. I’m enjoying the white hair mentioned in my favorite verse. :) We'll see how I feel when it all turns white!
I thank God for all the years He has planned for me!
No longer wasting time, "spending time" or letting my time slip by as Pastor Rick Warren says. I hope you don’t waste your time either!

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!
