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

Sweet Sixteen

  Today is my spiritual birthday – the date that changed my entire life.  It’s the before and after life changing date when my eyes were  opened to the divineness of God. I’ve been on an exhilarating and sometimes uncomfortable journey  full of experiences I never imagined I could or want to handle. But the best part of my journey is how God expanded my closed “religious”  mind and views. The knowledge I have is but a drop in the cosmic (heavenly) bucket; and I’ve learned that I’m in no position to impose my views on  people of different faiths or no faiths. There’s room at the table for all of us. We are all welcome and loved! There’s always room at the table. My life has been about constantly getting myself out of comfort zones  I prefer…always hesitating but drawn to the next adventure. That fateful, ever evolving connection to God has powered everything  about my life. It has taken me from the depths of despair to the heights of love;  from the holy experience of helping loved ones

How to stay young and youthful all your life

How to stay young and youthful all your life Word of Instruction from Dr. Charles F. Stanley These are my notes from today's broadcast . Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15 Psalm 92: 12 Good people will prosper     like palm trees,     and they will grow strong     like the cedars of Lebanon. 13 They will take root in your house, LORD God,     and they will do well. 14 They will be like trees that stay healthy and fruitful,     even when they are old. 15 And they will say about you, “The LORD always does right!  God is our mighty rock.” Keep learning – a lazy brain is a decaying brain Keep loving – don’t be bitter Keep laughing – 😊 Keep leaving your past behind – don’t live in the rear-view mirror of your life Keep longing Keep dreaming about the future – it’s a matter of attitude Keep looking your best Keep laboring and working – there’s no retirement in the Bible Keep learning, depending, and trusting in the Lord Keep listening to God – to know
