When God stands still for you.


Mark 10:47-49  KJV
And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. 
And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. 
And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

Can you imagine? Jesus stood still when the blind beggar, Bartimaeus, called out!

Yes. God stood still

The blind man boldly ask for mercy and for sight. Jesus restored his sight! 

Opportunities like that never repeat themselves!  

How are your spiritual eyes? Do you obey when God asks you to step out? Are you missing out on God's choice blessings when you can't hear His call or when you are unwilling to obey? Those blessings can make a difference for someone else, but if you don't act...No one benefits. 

ASK YOURSELF: Would you see an opportunity that God put in front on you? Have you responded to the Spirit's calling recently? Last year or two months ago don't count. What about today?

Are you timid, insecure or afraid to go where God leads you? 

Have you answered His call? Will you step out of your comfort zone?

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…
