Your personal relationship with Jesus: “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.” – John 14:27

Divine Note #9 – March 2, 2009

The above verse is a direct quote from Jesus to His apostles and it continues, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” If the Creator of the universe said to His apostles and, thus to us, that we are to have peace and to not be troubled or afraid, why do many of us continue to live in personal captivity? I shared my personal story of how that Scripture was given to me by the Holy Spirit last week in midst of a tough day at work. I decided to trust God and I asked him directly to please help me. He did. I was also inspired to share it because everything that God shares with me is meant to help everyone I know.

The most important gift that my Lord has given me is personal peace. My life is so not perfect. In the natural, it’s really out of control. As a single parent, I should be worried and afraid for my child and my future, but I am not. I could chose not to forgive, feel guilty, think it’s too hard and feel like I can’t hold it together. Instead, I am choosing to place my trust in Him and I am choosing to share my testimony with others so that they can have what He has given me!

Life is a journey with many twists and turns that may include times of severe turmoil. What happens if you are going through troubled times and you:
· Are without a Savior?
· Haven’t talked with Him lately?
· Are going through a dry spell and are not feeling His presence?
· Feel that a prayer has not been answered?
· Are facing very difficult problems?
· Are dealing with a serious illness?
· Are dealing with strongholds that make you feel condemned?

Wherever you are on your journey, He is ready to meet you where you are if you ask Him to come into your heart. Whether you’ve never trusted Jesus as your personal Savior, if you are a lifelong Christian in need of a kiss from heaven or if you are still struggling with trusting God with your entire heart, HE IS READY TO RECEIVE YOU! But you must talk to Him and get to know Him. When you establish that relationship, the Bible becomes your guide to life. It works, please try it.

He promised never to desert you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). In Psalm 138:8, it’s stated that He will perfect everything concerning you. Stand on His promises and ask Him for what you need! In Mark 10:46-52, Jesus asked Bartimaeus what he wanted him to do! Take action because God doesn’t just meet our needs, He fulfills our desires if they are requests based on Scriptural promises, Psalm 37:4-7.

Finally, thank all of you for laying hands on and praying for my daughter, Jackie, who turns 18-years old today. Every parent wants their child to walk with God from childhood. I thank Him for allowing me to be her mother.

Have a week of big God Hugs, :)
Love,
Blanca

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice
 Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them.
That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side. “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your real heart, too).  There’s no hiding. In that perfectly overwhelming moment i…
