Growing my spiritual life: The urgency of my life


1 Corinthians 9:16 
You see, if I preach the good news, it’s nothing to brag about. This urgency, this necessity has been laid on me. In fact, if I were to stop sharing this good news, I’d be in big trouble. 

This Scripture had been on my mind because I feel that urgency to share God's word and love.

Not a moment goes by in my day when my thoughts don't turn to The Lord. 

I realize the responsibility of my calling. 

A calling I never expected... 

Social media has increased the reach of my work for God. 

I find myself compelled to share Scripture, minister to those who need hope in illness and more than anything: I share how God really does want us to know His heart.

It no longer matters to me that others think of me as that crazy Jesus lover. 

But it was uncomfortable becoming the person God made me to be. 

I was forced out of my comfort zone. 

I no longer fit in any of my circles. 

But I am compelled by a Greater Force to never be comfortable again. 

That's okay.

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…
