The other side of love and God’s grace – Isaiah 45:7

Tonight I'm so thankful that God has empowered me to live my faith out loud in America. As I read Scripture, He opens more knowledge, which I am bold about sharing with everyone who has eyes to see or ears to hear.

My goal is to see many in eternity, so I'm not always going to talk exclusively about how much God loves us, which He does.

But God is righteous and He is sovereign, and that's the part that doesn't tickle ears too well.

Note the following Scripture - God is in charge of both good and bad - whether we like it or understand it. 

Isaiah 45:7 I form light and create darkness; I make what is good, happy, and healthy, and I create woe. I, the Eternal One, make them one and all.

Notice: "I create woe." God creates woe and that makes many uncomfortable. Many do not believe that this side of God exists - they prefer to hear of love, grace and more love. Many popular churches and ministries cater to this crowd and it's deception.  

My hope is that everyone who reads this is inspired to seek God, to seek His wisdom and understand His knowledge. This is especially for those who are Christians. Use the power of the Holy Spirit that you have available - take that daring step with God!

As you step into the power God has given you, this all makes perfect sense. We don't have to worry about everything spinning out of control (and it is) because God is in control!

Sure, others can guide you, but ultimately it's about God and you. They won't be there when you give an account of the days He gave you on Earth.

Be bold for God friends! Evil is super bold right now. We must be bolder!

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!
