UPDATE: What's next for MyDivineNotes.com

Hello friends and readers!

So much has changed in the world since I started this blog. I have also evolved as we all should to reflect new experiences, knowledge and calls of the Spirit.
But the one aspect of my life that has remained constant is my life with God! My reliance and belief in God have never changed.

What has changed is the call of the Spirit in my life and ministry. When I started my journey I had one-way vision influenced by the voices I listened to. 

Change gradually happened in my ministry and beliefs because of the many years of ministering in hospital settings. One can't impose spiritual beliefs on people of different faiths or no faith. That was the starting point for me.

Racial and political reckoning also awakened me to the systemic oppression of the White church that I embraced in my adulthood. I engaged in learning to understand how the church was always made for light skinned people - not me and my loved ones.

I stopped engaging in religion and my faith grew deeper. It was the best thing I could have done. 

I'm currently engaged in deep theological reflection and study to undo and understand the things that I learned as "truths" and absolutes. 

Reading the Bible with a new lens has completely changed my perspective and life.

My ministry also evolved with a social justice emphasis.

I also recognize that we have a finite amount of time on Earth so I'm working on how the rest of my life will look. More on that later. 

Today I'm still evolving and so much has happened and, most importantly, 
I've also learned to "stay in my lane" and care for my body, soul and spirit.

One key finding that I will share with everyone:  I miss having a spiritual community. 
Whatever I do next, I want to be surrounded by people who love God as passionately as I do! Let me know if you have suggestions or comments. 

Also - go over to my
 https://blancavelasquez.wordpress.com/ blog that has links to this and my other blogs for the latest posts. 

Thank you for continuing to come to this site to read my writings. You can be sure that whatever I write will be Spirit-led. 

Take care precious ones!
Sending you big GOD hugs - 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 e

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 Luke 7:36-40 The Voice translation  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 rea

I am grateful that I can trust God. Psalm 56:9

Psalm 56:9 When I cry out to You, Then my enemies will turn back; This I know, because God is for me. I have learned that I must rely on God in all things – big and small. I must cry out to him when I’m dealing with life. I tend to want to handle things on my own, but I have a bad track record. I’m not good without God. We can rely on God when we know God. We can decide that God is a stranger and choose not to know him or we can get to know him so we can rely on him when the enemy approaches. The enemy will approach. Know God. Let God be on your side.
