The History: A couple of years ago, I started journaling my prayers and God's responses to them. I told my friends about this, they were really interested. I told my Pastor about it and he said, how about sharing those on line. When I asked God, He said, my words are for you, but not just for you. And, here we are...I hope He speaks to you in these words.

Share everything...

My prayer:
You are so truly beautiful. You are so amazing and so beautiful. You're here, now and so beautiful. God I worship you. I love you. I surrender everything to you, right now and right here. I hold nothing back God. I hold nothing back from you. Everything in me is already an open book to you, but I make a conscious choice to give you it all anyway. I love you. God you presence is amazing. Just sitting in the midst of you. Your presence all around...so beautiful. What do you have for me tonight God? What do you have for us?

What God said tonight:
This is good. Your getting use to being in my presence all of the time. I want to be in every part of your life. I don't want to be relegated to Sundays, or to "prayer time." What if you had a husband and told him you only wanted to see him on Sunday or only twice a day during a time that you pick? I am guessing he wouldn't be your husband for long.

I love you so and this, this consistent constant togetherness is what I want. I want to share everything with you. I want to be in every relationship that you have. I want to be in your work. I want to be in your play and in your rest. I want to live with you in your home and drive with you in your car. I want to laugh with you and cry with you. I want to be with you always. When I say that I don't just mean that I want to be with you forever, although I do, but what I mean is that I want to be with you always, all the time. When you are awake and when you are asleep.

Now, I have promised you that I will never leave you, so truth is, I am always with you whether you realize it or not. But when you realize it, when you sense my presence, when you remember me, share with me, talk with me, and invite me to be a part of everything...that is special. That is what I want. That is when I can really move in your life. That is when I can help you help others. That is when we can accomplish anything.

I love you. I love you. Keep me close. Recognize me in every moment. Live with me in you and will see great things. Do you love this as much as I do? Do you love this closeness like I do. I can feel your heart and know that you do. My sweet child. Tomorrow will be awesome, amazing and filled with more opportunity to experience me.

Suicide and the Spiritual realm...

My prayer:
My God, my love, I worship you God. You are everything and I am completely submitted to you.

God, I have a true burden tonight for everyone who feels like they can't make it one more second. That life is just too hard. That living is too painful. That there is no true purpose or meaning in their lives and it would be better if they weren't around anymore. That it would be better to be dead. At least then it would be over.

You know God that I have been there more than once. Thank you for always bringing me out. I pray God that you find and touch each and every person who is at that place tonight and fill them with an unexplainable hope. Fill them with your Spirit and let them feel your love. Show them the dream and the future that you have for them. Remind them how valuable they are too you, how precious they are to you. God, I pray for immediate help, now, before it is too late.

I love you Daddy. Thank you for your help.

What God said tonight:
Your prayer has sent out my angels on assignment. They are on their way right now.

I love you daughter. Thank you for bringing me your burden. There are so many things like this that I can handle, that I can help with, that you can not on your own but when you call on me, you release something in the spiritual realm that allows me to move.

The spiritual realm is as real as the red chair you are sitting in. It is as real as you feet. It is ever present although seldom visible. You are more sensitive to it when you are focused on me, but you are still learning. I want to show you more, teach you more so you can be more effective in spiritual things. I want you to be more equipped.

Don't be afraid. It is where I rule and reign. I created it like everything else and I won't let you be harmed. I will be with you all the way. Let go of your fear, your skepticism, your prejudices so I can show you what is really there. So I can show you what your life is already doing in the spiritual realm. You are already functioning there, you just don't see the results always.

I love you daughter. You are my reason and my hope. You are the reflected light that makes it worthwhile. I love you so much. I won't let you get hurt in this. I am a complete guard around you. Trust me again.

I am in you...

My prayer:
Mighty powerful loving amazing God. You are so good! You are the peace in the craziness. You are the joy in the pain. You are the love in the hatred. You are mine God and I am yours.

I love you so much. I hope that I never lose this true appreciation for you God. I don't ever want to take you for granted. I don't ever want to forget that you are everything good in my life. Everything that I have ever done that was worthwhile was because you did it. God, the things in me that are good are your gifts to me. You are responsible for every good thing I have ever known, ever done or am.

God, sometimes I don't think I am much, that I don't do enough, I don't love enough, I don't help enough. God, sometimes I am just not enough. God I want to be your hands and feet all of the days of my life. God let me serve you and show you how I love you.

God, what is on your mind tonight?

What God said tonight:
What are you looking for tonight daughter? I am here and can provide all of your needs. You need to ask though.

Today is not an end. Today was a beginning. Every day in your life is a beginning. Your days are created to start new things. Your days are not without purpose. Every day is moving the plan forward. Every day is a new opportunity to find me and get closer to me.

I don't need you to perform for me. Be careful to not expect me to perform for you. I will meet all of your needs out of my riches in glory. I will hear your prayers and answer them before you are even done speaking. I will perform great miracles. But I will do all of those things because of who I am.

If you have a day where you haven't seen me moving in your life, look closer. I am in every breath you take. I am in every thought you have. I am in every action you take and every person you meet. I am so embedded in your life, there is no you without me And, I love it. I love being that close to you.

Don't be discouraged. Don't get down because you didn't see the heavens open and the earth move today. You will, when it is time. There is truly a time for every season. Trust, pray, rest, live and love. Easy formula. Know that I am in you and everything you do. Shine bright for me.

Eye of the tornado...

My prayer:
God, I almost don't want to pray right now. Your Spirit is so completely present and beautiful, I don't want to disturb it.

God, you are truly the only reason for living. King Solomon said it, everything else is just smoke. You are the purpose, the reason and the joy in my life.

I know that I am not always as grateful as I should be. I know that I get tied up in circumstances more than I should. I know that I spend too much time focusing on the problem that I miss you as the answer. I have so much to learn. I have so much that needs to change and be better for you.

But, God, you love me so anyway. Nights like tonight where I can just feel that love. So completely feel it. It is so real and so big and so beautiful!!! God thank you for these times where I can just feel you. I love to learn about you. I love to serve you. I love to talk with you. But nothing beats just feeling your Spirit and your presence. Mmmmm. Good, so very good.

What God said tonight:
I am always here daughter. Whether you feel me or not I am always here. But I love it when you know it. Not just in your head but when you know in your gut that I am here with you and loving you. That makes me happy. That makes me sigh in contentment and joy. My daughter, my love, knows that I love her and I am with her right now, right here. That is so very good.

We are in a tornado of activity but right now, I have you safe in the eye of it. It is peaceful and calm here. We can see the storm, but it can't touch us. I will keep you in the eye of storm safe and sound. When the storm passes, we will soar again but now, just stay in here with me for awhile. It is safe here and I want you to remain. Rest and wait. Don't move too quickly or you will be taken up by the storm. Don't move too slowly or you will drop to the ground. Stay in constant contact with me so you will move at the right time to soar.

I love you sweet daughter. This is a great time but it is a precarious time. You must listen really very carefully if this is going to work out right--work out for the very best that I have for you. Sweetness, there is such sweetness here tonight. I love you.

Change...

My prayer:
Awesome God. Today was fantastic! Thank you for a great service at church today. I love how you use our issues our stuff to help other people. God thank you for a church that isn't afraid to tell it like it is and show that even in the worst of times, you are still the answer. Thank you God for the courage that they all showed today in sharing their struggles. God I pray that you bring back to them a multiplied blessing for the sacrifice they made today.

God, as I go into another week, I pray for your help, your guidance, your presence to be with me every minute of every day. I don't know what this week holds but I pray for opportunities to be good to the people around me, to help when help is needed and to be who you created me to be. God show me what you need to be done, I will do it. Help me to maintain balance through it all.

I love you God. I love living for you. I need more. I want more. Pastor D asked today what would it take to make me really happy. I want it all. But I saw today that there is still some preparation needed in me. Thank you for showing me the work that still needs to be done.

Help me God to change and be what you need me to be. I love your presence in my life God.

What God said tonight:
Hi daughter. Today was good. A lot of people were helped. A lot of people recognized like you did that there are changes they need to make in their lives.

The great thing about making changes with me is that all I really need from you is the willingness to change. I can make the change but you must be willing. Truly willing. I won't ever force a change on you. I won't ever make you change. But once you decide you need it, you want it. Once you accept that the change must happen and agree to it, then I can step in and change you.

You are going to be amazed at how easy this change is. And, when it is done, your going to be amazed at how quickly things move.

I love you daughter. Change is good when I am in charge of it. Don't fear the change, don't resist the change. I will make sure that all things work together for your good.

You are my precious creation. I made you in my image. You have the DNA of God in you and you are a royal priesthood. Remember all of this throughout the week. This will be a great time of building but also of healing and restoration. You are going to be healing as you build.

It doesn't matter how long it takes. It only matters is that we get it done eventually and you are working at it every day. There is some urgency in that I want you to experience the joy of your future as soon as possile and as long as possible. But the fact is we have all of eternity to enjoy it. So, take your time, do it right. Change, decide to change and I will take care of the rest. Love you always my girl.

Love with skin on...

My Prayer:
Father, Daddy, God, Lord, Provider. My God I love you. I don't even know if I will ever have the words or the ability to tell you about my love for you. And yet, there are nights like tonight, where my love for you and your love for me are not quite enough. God, it is like someone said, I forget who, sometimes I need someone to love me with skin on.

I need people around me God. I understand that for some reason you have me more isolated in this season, but after having the blessing of people in my life for the last several years, it is hard to do without them. I miss having the love and support of your people in my life. I know they are still there but everyone has their own stuff going on and no one really seems to have the time to just talk, connect and love.

I know that it is a lack in me that the love you have for me is not enough. It should be. You are so amazing, your love so encompassing, it should be enough to know how much you love me. And sometimes, a lot of the time, it is. But tonight, it isn't. I am sorry for the lack in me but it isn't.

I need people God. I need them to love and I need them to love me. I haven't always felt this way. There were years where I didn't think I needed anyone. You remember those years where I was ready to drive off the overpass every night... But now, I know I need people.

Am I messing up? Am I not reaching out enough? Do I need to spend more time giving? Have I become self centered again God? What ever it is, let me know. Show me so I can change.

I love you! You are everything God and nothing is worth anything without you. But you have shown me the value of connecting and loving people. The value of receiving love from people. And I need that back in my life. Please God, help me in this season. I don't understand it. I am trying but I just don't. I love you.

What God said tonight:
You are making yourself miserable. This feeling of isolation, loneliness is not real and not what I have for you. You are meant to connect with those around you. You are meant to reach out to others around you . I need you to. There is no other way for my word to be spread. Just because the method has changed, doesn't mean that the purpose and plan has changed.

I love you and I will never leave you. I will always make sure that there are people in your life surrounding you in prayer, love and peace. I will always make sure you have everything and everyone that you need. I have people who need you that you have never met. I have people who need your talents, your gifts that you don't know now and you may never know them but they will know you. They will know that you are the conduit of my love an my knowledge.

You continue to pay attention to me, to my leading to my commands and I will guide you. I will provide for you. I will love you more than any person could ever love you. You will never know love as great as mine. You will never receive love or peace as great as what I can give you.

Don't covet the love of others when you have me. I will bring you love on this earth. I will bring you great and amazing love that you can not fathom at this point. But first you must recognize that my love is better than anything else. You must know that my love is greater and is always there for you.

Rest in my love tonight and always. Love me and let me love you for now is the time for great love to be recognized and realized. Stay with me tonight. Don't rush off. Stay with me and let me heal, restore and love you. You are my precious amazing daughter and I love you more than life.

Blessing...

My prayer:
God, my God, Lord of all, Teacher, Redeemer, Healer, Love, Peace and Joy. God you are all of that and more. Let your tenderness be evidence that you are who you say. Let your strength and power be proof of your sovereignty. Let your presence be felt by every one of your people in a real and tangible way tonight God.

I love you God. I love how your presence changes the atmosphere. Today was no different than yesterday in what happened, but being connected with you all throughout the day, I had joy, I had peace, it was a good day. Every day with you is good God. Every day that I forget, get distracted or lose the focus on you is miserable. It is just that easy God. Your presence makes all the difference.

God I am so grateful to you. I pray your blessing on my life, my friends lives, my family's lives. I pray God that you pour out your favor on us, not because we deserve it but because you have so generously given us first son rights. God, other than reading about it, I don't really understand "first son" rights. But, what I do understand is the rights, the blessings of being the favored child and I think first son rights are kind of like that but more. Kind of like having the legal right to be the favored child.

God I thank you for your favor. I pray God that you make me a blessing to everyone you bring into my life. I love you, I love them. I am yours God.

What God said tonight:
You are at such a place of peace tonight my daughter. I am glad. I am glad that you have found your way to my peace and my joy in your life.

This weekend is important, not for what you will accomplish but for what I have to give you. You have great treasures stored up. I have been waiting to bless you until you were ready and now its time. It is time for your blessing. It is time for your joy to bust out all over. I can't wait to see your face when you see what I have for you. It won't be startling, you have been expecting it, but you will be so happy none the less.

You are about to walk down some amazing roads. Put your steps in my foot prints, do not waiver to the left or to the right. I have a perfect plan and path for your life. You are ready for the next step and I am ready for you to go.

I love you so much. I find you so precious I can't stand to be away from you. I will never leave you because I couldn't stand to be a part from you. Let me love you tonight and always. Feel my love for you and let it make you complete. Rest and be ready for great joy!!! Love you love you love you.

Breathe...

My prayer:
Ok, I am going to start over God. That first run at this prayer was way to jumbled up. I couldn't understand it so I can't expect you to!

I love you Daddy. Thank you for understanding me so well. Thank you for always knowing what I need when I need it. Thank you for friends who pray and who call just to see if I am ok. Thank you for letting me reconnect with people some this week. That isolation was rough.

My mind is really jumping all over tonight God. There is so many exciting and truly GOOD things going on. There are so many amazing people you have put in my life. There are so many questions I still have though.

God I pray for your favor tomorrow with the training class. There are a lot of technical aspects on this one that I need your help with. Help me to be an effective trainer for the people. Thank you for the gifts you have given me in this area. I pray God that you continue to open opportunities for me to use this gift for your people and your kingdom as it was intended.

Ok, I am going to give this over to you and hope that you are more coherent than I am tonight! I love you so much. Thank you for not giving up on me.

What God said tonight:
Breathe, relax. When did you stop believing that I have things under control? When did you start to doubt? This is what lack of proper resting does. You get all strung out and moving in a thousand different directions and you get confused.

You made some good plans today to get back in balance. Move forward with all of them. But, remember that I am your true rest, I am your home, I am your covering and I am your peace. I am what will be there when everything else is gone.

I am glad that you had time with your sister tonight. Listen to her. She hears from me. You can trust what she says. I love you daughter. I am in charge. You are not so far off track that we can't get back on track easily. You need to rest tonight and this weekend. You need to get back into the routines that help you stay balanced. You need to stop forsaking worship time, quiet time, time to laugh. You are working so much at so many things and you are or will burn out if you don't stop it.

Ok, we are done talking about it. I know that you are making the choices that will get you back on track. In the meantime, rest in me. Curl up in my arms and let me cradle you. Let me heal you. Stop worrying about how it will get done. It will get done but only if you relax and let me be in charge.

You know this, just breathe, just live, just know that I am in charge and won't let you miss any of it. I love you. I love your work ethic. I love that you are a hard worker and want to give me your all.

I want you in this for the long haul. I want you in this for eternity. To make it to eternity, we have to even out the pace. It is like when you run. You can run really fast, but only for a few minutes. If you want to go for a long distance run you know you have to slow your gait to a lope. Then when you get that comfortable stride, you can go forever. I want you to go forever with me. Get into a spiritual lope that allows you to go forever.

I love you like the flower loves the sun and like the soil loves the rain. I live and breathe to be with you and to love you. Be mine tonight and forever.

Obedience...

My prayer:
Awesome, incredible God almighty. How are you tonight God? You are always there for me and always ready to hear my complaints, my joy, my struggles and my pain. Does anyone ever just listen to you, just to hear what you have going on with no other agenda? If not, let that be me tonight. Let me be the ear to listen to you. I love you Daddy.

What God said tonight:
Interesting way to put it. You and a few others remember to ask me what's on my mind. But I wish more would. There is so much that I have to teach. There is so much that I want to give you. There is so much I want to help you with.

All I need is an opening. All I need is you to listen and be obedient. Obedience has gotten a bad name because it is often used in context of abuse. The person requiring obedience often has their own best interest at heart, not yours. But with me it is different. With me, My interest is always in you and making sure you have all that you need and want. My intention is to prosper you. My interest, my purpose is never to harm you or take advantage of you.

That is why obedience to me is smart. That is why obedience to me should be done with joy. When you recognize that obedience results in all good things for you, you begin to understand why I ask it of you. I don't want you to be some automaton, obeying without making a choice. I gave you free will. I want you to choose to obey me. I want you to choose to live the life I have for you. Not for my sake but for yours.

You won't believe how great life can be when you are obedient to everything I have told you. Now, all of that said, I really am not all about rules. I know that religion has made it all about rules but that is not me. I love you. I will tell you when to turn left and when to turn right. I will be a light unto your feet and a lamp unto your path. I will guide you always. Follow me.

Obey me not out of compulsion but out of love. Obey me as a choice. I love you so much and I want so much for you. I have so many treasures locked up and waiting for you. Follow my lead and we will go places you can not imagine. I love you, I love you, I love you. Follow my love.

Out of position...

My prayer:
God you are awesome. This day was pitiful but you are awesome. To keep myself from getting into a pity party, I am going to shut up and just let you talk. What is on your mind? What do you want to say?

What God said tonight:
Was today so bad, really? Think through it, it was a hassle but at the end of the day, you are safe whole, healthy and you have a full stomach, a warm home and people who love you.

Your focus got way off today, that is all that happened. You got so caught up in accomplishing that you stopped experiencing and all you could see was the roadblocks to the accomplishments that you thought were so important. When you do that, you are miserable and so are all the people around you.

Remember your purpose. Did you show anyone love today? Then you accomplished your purpose. Any day you accomplish your purpose is a good day. Any day that you get to end with me is a good day.

Be encouraged daughter. There is more to do but get your focus right. Remind yourself of why we are doing all of this in the first place. It is for my people, the people in your life, the people who don't know me yet. Love and be the blessing I have made you. You can't do that when you have an attitude like today.

You are not giving me enough to work with right now. I need you rested, I need you with a good attitude, I need you to remember your purpose.

I love you and I want you to have every dream that you have ever dreamed about. We will get there but listen to me. Get back in balance. Get back in the rhythm of my work. I love you and I want to be your best in this time. I want you to let me love you, bless you and keep you so you can be the blessing to others that you want to be and that I want you to be.

Keep in mind that there is no greater purpose on earth than to love my people. You have not been in the right position to do my will today. You will do better tomorrow, breathe and let me work through you.

Don't get caught up in accomplishing anything. All of that will come. Get caught up in loving the people around you. You will feel better, they will feel better and everything that you are worried about will fall into place but do your job. Trust me, I trust you.

Monday, September 20, 2010

People...

My prayer:
Mighty and awesome God. You are my home. You are my calm. You are my peace. You are my everything God. I love you so much. I love that I can pour out my love on you and know that no matter how much I give, you will always give me back more. God, your love is limitless.

With people, I never know. I never know if they will love me back, whether I can trust them, whether they are going to hurt me. But you, I can always trust you. I can always know that you will love me back.

God I am so grateful for you. What would life be like without you? Pretty sure I wouldn't want to live that life.

What God said tonight:
You are right, people aren't always trustworthy. They will hurt you, let you down and leave you. But through it all, you have me. Through it all, I will make sure that you never suffer more than I can heal. Through it all, I will make sure that there are people around you to love you.

You can't rely on any individual person but you can rely on people. You can rely on my people listening to me and loving on you. It won't always be the same people, but I will surround you with people who love you all the days of your life. When one person lets you down, know that I will bring another to lift you up.

I love you daughter. Depsite what they might do, love them anyway. Love the people around you whether they love you back, especially when they don't love you back. Those are often the people who need your love the most. Love people who hurt you, abandon you and let you down. I promise that love will come back to you, multiplied.

I know I talk about love a lot, but love is the key. I am love. The purpose is love. The reason is love. True love is never offended, never dies and always heals. Love from the center of who you are and I will protect your heart. I love you and my love will refill you. My darling girl, don't give up.

Rest...

My prayer:
God, today was a really good day. Church, a hike, finishing the Prayer and Worship segment for How to hear from God and all of it with you in charge. That's what made it good. You make everything good God.

Thanks for the reminder of the destiny you have for me. I don't understand why it is so hard for me to remember that there is always a point to everything you do. God, I love you and trust you. You were right, things don't seem to be working out the way I thought they would, but I trust you to make it all work out in the end. I trust that your way is better than the way I had all figured out. I trust that you will always lead me, guide me, direct me, love me and bless me.

Thank you for the amazing teachers and friends that you have put in my life that helped me to learn that.

God I pray as I go into this new week that your will is accomplished in my life. I pray God that you give me the wisdom, the patience, the awareness and the skills to meet every need that you need me to meet. God I pray that you make me a blessing to everyone I encounter. God I pray for effectiveness this week. I pray for a greater level of effectiveness this week.

I love and praise you God, putting my whole life in your hands freely with no hesitation.

What God said tonight:
I know that you are wondering what is next. I know that you want to understand the why and the how of it all. You will know in time, but trust is what I need from you now. It is like I said on the hike today, or I guess you really said it. I don't need you to understand right now, I need you to trust. I don't need you to have wisdom right now, I need you to say yes.

I love you daughter and I am so glad that we are to a point in this relationship that I can ask for your trust and you can give it so quickly and so freely. That is a lot of progress in not a lot of time.

I will promise you again that it really is all worth it. I promise that some day, it will make sense to you. I promise that someday the why and the how will be clear. But for now, just trust and love.

Today was good, but you worked more than you needed to. Don't forget balance. Don't forget that you need a sabbath. I created that day of rest because you need it.

You will have another busy week. I will help you to rest if you let me. I need you rested to hear me and do my will. I need you to be full and not drained if we are going to get the work done this week. Take your rest as serious as you do your work. Understand that without it, you are less useful to me.

I know how you love me and how you love to serve me. The Martha in you is strong. Nourish the Mary in you my girl. Rest, worship, love and keep me at the center of everything. You know I love you.

Miracles...

My prayer:
My Lord, God Almighty. I am not sure what to pray tonight. I am kind of at a loss for words. Today was good. Thanks for the sleep last night. It really helped. Thanks for the help getting everything done today. Thanks for being with me all day.

God tomorrow is Sunday where we all get together to worship you and learn more about how to live our lives for you. God I pray for something new, different, more tomorrow during church services. God I pray that you begin showing up in ways that no one can deny that you are you and no one can deny your power.

I pray God that you help me to serve wherever and however you need me tomorrow. I thank for the opportunity to serve you and your people. I pray God for a clean heart and a focused mind so that nothing interferes with my ability to serve you, worship you and learn more about you.

I pray God that your presence is so real that people leave their service tomorrow changed and ready to do something new for you. I pray this God in the name of Jesus Christ who saved me. Love you God.

What God said tonight:
For someone who didn't have much to say, you ended up saying quite a bit.

I want to begin showing up in new and unusual ways. I want to start really surprising people and shake them out of their complacency.

It is hard to surprise people in this generation. They have seen so much, real and imagined. They have experienced so much, they tend to be jaded or closed off to the possibility of the miraculous. They tend to think everything is a hoax, a scam and they aren't going to be taken in by it. If me showing up and knocking down a building around people would get their attention and let them know I am God, I would do it. But that doesn't move people.

People only believe what they see working or not working in the lives of the people around them that they know and trust. That is the only thing that truly moves people to come to me and to trust me. That is why you can't be silent. That is why you must continually tell people and let people see me work in your life. Let them see our relationship. Let them see how living for me is so much better than anything else. That will convince people. Not another miracle.

I will continue to do miracles because I am the God of miracles. But I don't expect the miracles to convince people I am God. I expect your life to do that. I expect our relationship to do that. Make sure they can see it. I love you daughter and look forward to being at service with you tomorrow. It will be good. I have a surprise for you, a good one!

Letting go...

My prayer:
Incredible God. How can you be everything to everyone all the time? You continually amaze me with how you are everything we need. Everything that everyone ever needed, needs or will need. I mean, really, I can't wrap my mind around it even though I know it is true.

The God of everything is everything to me, to us. You are more than my mind can comprehend. You are more than my heart can hold. You are more than I ever knew you could be.

God, I trust you, love you and lean on you. Thank you for this week of intimacy, closeness with you. Thank you for time to focus on you and what you want to do. God, I pray for rest tonight. I am so tired but haven't really slept all week and it has caught up with me. I pray God that you give me rest tonight. I love you God.

What God said tonight:
Sleep happens only when you can let go. You need to let go. You have been holding on to some things that no longer serve you well. Please let them go. For your sake, let them go. You don't need them anymore. What I have for you is so much better but I can't give it to you until you truly let go. Release it in my name and walk into your future and your blessing. Leave it behind and don't look back. Don't be Lot's wife. Don't look back. The future is so full. Don't look back and miss what I am going to do.

Thank you for your obedience and your heart willing to learn. You will continue to learn all the days of your life. You are a perpetual student of me and I love that about you.

I know this is short tonight, but you do need to sleep. Now that you let go, sleep will come easy. Sleep will be sweet. You will wake up rested and ready for anything I throw your way. I love you my dear. Sleep well. Sweetness, let me whisper in your ear tonight that you may sleep. Let my peace reside in your heart. Let my love blanket you. Let my hand be your pillow. I love you so much. Rest in me.

God's way...

My Prayer:
Lord, God, Jehovah, El Elyon, God of everything. How are you tonight God? What is on your mind?

I love you so much. I am so grateful for today and all that you do. Thank you for your favor, for amazing friends, for health and for being with me all day. God I thank you for all of the prayer requests that you are about to fulfill. I thank you for what you are about to do. I thank you for being you.

Now, it's time to focus on you and what you want to say and do. I'm here God. Speak to me.

What God said tonight:
It's not a time to get caught up in what us supposed to happen and how it is supposed to happen. I have a plan that is not necessarily your plan. I need you to be ok with me doing things my way, even when it doesn't make sense.

You know the outcome. You know that we win. You know that you will prosper wherever you are. But how we get there is not what you have thought. How we get there is on my terms.

I need you and everyone to know that I am God. I am not tied to doing things the way that make sense, the logical way. I can do things however I want. I can part a red sea to rescue my people. I can raise a man from the dead. I can sacrifice my son for your sin. I can do whatever I want. I can stop the sun in the sky. I am not tied to natural laws or man made laws. I am the law.

But I am also love. And because of my love for you, you can trust that even though it is happening in a way that is foreign to you, it is happening for your good because I always have your best in mind. You will see that my way is the better way, but it may not seem that way for awhile. I have a plan and a purpose and the journey of getting there, how we get there, is more important than the destination.

Love my people daughter. Love yourself. Love me. That remains your job. I will take care of the rest but trust me even when it looks bad. Trust me. I love you and I will not abandon you or the plan I have on your life. Live knowing that I am in charge and I will see my will accomplished. I love you tonight and forever.

You are very good...

My prayer:
Awesome God, all powerful God, all knowing God, lover of my soul and heavenly Father. You are so incredible. Thank you for this day of freedom and joy! Thank you for so quickly providing an opportunity for me to use the recent struggle to help someone else. You are simply GOOD! I love you God. What is on your mind tonight?

What God said tonight:
It's a good time and the right season to begin new things. It is the time for you to take all that you have learned and create. You have experienced a lot of things, good, bad and indifferent. All of these will be used to help people.

I know your heart dear and I know that it is what you want to do. Help people. I know how you have tried so many avenues, some more successful than others. We are entering a season where your effectiveness, my effectiveness through you will explode.

You are everything I intended you to be. You are ready to do this. I am sorry that your preparation involves pain sometimes. You are getting so much better and letting go of that pain when it is gone though. That will serve you well. I can not promise a pain free life. I can promise a life where you will always triumph over the pain as long as you stick with me and don't give up.

You are my precious child, my precious gift to myself. I created you to love you. I created you to love me. We are in the middle of our love story and it is good.

You are not everything that you will be but you are everything I intended you to be at this time. Don't envy others. They have been called to their own thing. This is your thing and it is good. When I created the world, I looked at what I created and said "It is good." When I create man, when I created you, I said "it is very good." You are very good. You are covered in my blood and you are very good. You are what I intended. You are my intended.

I love you. Stay faithful and be everything you know how to be. Love how I showed you to love, teach how I showed you to teach. I don't need you to teach what others have taught, that was their call. Teach what I have taught you. Love you, rest tonight, please.

Welcome back...

My prayer:
God, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Thank you for joy and laughter tonight. I needed it. Things, life has been so intense lately. It was so good to smile, to laugh, to just have joy!

Thank you that you always bring me back to your joy, your peace. No matter what happens, no matter how I feel, you always bring me back. I can always find the joy that you have for me, eventually. Your joy is not dependent on circumstances so it can exist in the presence of any situation. THANK YOU!!! I really needed that dose of joy tonight.

I love you God. Living with you in my life is so much better than living without you. You bring purpose, joy, peace, love and so much more that doesn't really have words to describe it. Why do I want to serve you so much? Why do I want other people to know you? There is nothing better than seeing you working in some one's life. There is nothing better than watching you work. There is nothing better than living this life for you God.

I love you so much Father God. You are my everything. Thank you for bringing me through this thing and I pray God that you help me hang onto this joy and this peace. I am so ineffective without it. I am here God for whatever you need or want of me.

What God said tonight:
Welcome back! You were hard to see there for awhile. You were lost in a fog, but I was still with you and would never let you go.

Do you notice that these seasons, the hard ones, the ones that really challenge you don't seem to last as long as they use to? When you bring everything to me, I can act on them quickly and take care of them. When you try to handle them yourself or go other places for answers, they can really drag on.

I know that you wanted to reach out to friends in this trial, which is a good instinct usually. But this time, I needed to handle it. I needed you to lean on me for the restoration. You will be reconnecting soon but in the struggle I need you with me alone.

You are through it. Don't worry that it is lurking around the corner. It is not coming back. You are free. You are moving into a new season of celebration and effectiveness, free of the thing that was holding you back. You will get to see the realization of more and more dreams, your and others.

You will be moving back into the dream building business for awhile and you will see new dreams. You will see new visions. Ones that build on what I have already shown you. There is no stopping us now. You are going to see my power manifest on earth. You are going to see things you have only dreamed of. Get excited, it is nearly here! Get excited!

Remember to smile, to have fun. You have a lot of work to do but if you get lost in the work and forget the fun, it won't be worth it in the end. Balance. My joy is yours forever. My peace is yours forever. It is always there for you no matter what. Come and be with me tonight. Spend some time in worship and let me restore you. I love you.

Especially for you...

My prayer:
Hi Dad. It has been an emotional couple of days. I didn't think my faith, my belief in your call on my life, your purpose on my life could be shaken like this.

You told me this was coming. You told me there would be a time where it all looked like it was falling apart and you told me to trust you. That the plan is still in place and still moving forward.

I am trying God. I was there about 75% of the time today. 25% of the time, I was convinced that my life was meaningless and it was time to just give it up.

Enough drama. You have promised that you have destined me to prosper. You have promised that I am the head and not the tail. You have promised that no weapon formed against me can prosper. I will trust your promises God. I will trust your promises over my life, my future, my family and my friends. I will trust you God.

You are not a man that you would lie. There would be no purpose in your lying. It would just be cruel and you are not cruel. You are love. God I love you and will trust you now and forever.

What God said tonight:
There you go, pull yourself up girl. You are right, there has been enough drama. Thank you for remembering what I told you, warned you about. This is just another step in the process, in the dream. This too was destined. This struggle, this feeling unanchored and lost, this is part of the growing and preparing for what is next. It's not pleasant but it is necessary.

Your trust in me will be greater. Your love for me stronger, your reliance on me more complete. I told you last night that this is a time for just you and me. Don't worry about being isolated right now. I will comfort you. Don't worry about anything. I really do have it under control. You are not alone. You are in my hands and I will not drop you.

Keep the faith and keep moving forward. Do a little each day and we will get it done. You will be in your future before you know it. It is not time to rest, it is time to act. It is time to move. It is time to do what I have taught you.

Stay strong and trust. We will move forward together and it won't be nearly as scary as you think it will be. I love you so much. I will keep you and protect you. You will be the fulfillment of my dream for you. Don't lose the vision, the dream. I created it especially for you. I formed it with your special gifts in mind to accomplish the thing that only you can. Keep in mind that if you don't do this, no one else will. It is especially for you and it needs to be done.

The heavens are about to open up. You have a great blessing coming your way. Don't give up before it gets here. Love you sweet daughter. We are going to make it through this too.

Angry...

My prayer:
God, you know I don't spend a lot of time talking about satan. He gets too much press as it is. But tonight, I am angry. I am angry at his persistent attempts to lie, cheat, steal and deceive. God, I call on you to shut him up.

In the name of Jesus Christ I bind satan off of my life, off of my friends lives, off of my families life. God in the power that you gave me in Christ I cast him into the pit of hell and say he has NO PLACE in our lives. God I pray that you fill us with your Holy Spirit, leaving no room for him or his nasty little demons to return.

God, I pray this in the power that you have given to me. I put it all in your hands God. Thank you God for reminding me of the source of this kind of stuff. Thank you for reminding me that you gave me the ability to take control when he starts his tricks.

Thank you for taking care of me. Thank you for always being there for me, even when I don't deserve it, when I get angry at you, even when I know at the time that I have no right to be mad at you. Forgive me God for everything.

What God said tonight:
You are washed clean and whole my daughter. Your anger is justified, just originally it was misdirected. You have it focused correctly now. You know where I say "do not sin in your anger?" You avoided sinning in your anger tonight when you brought it to me so I could show you the source. When you chose to then face that enemy straight on, you did what I would have you to do.

You are in right standing with my word and my desire. We are getting into some tougher areas tonight, but it was time. It is time to meet this threat straight on. He is contained and in place as a result of you taking the authority that I have given you.

You are now free to move forward and enjoy this ride again. You are now free to love and live in the joy that I have provided for you. Keep full of the Holy Spirit. Worship to refill. Keep focused on me. Give no place for the devil to come back in. Give him no room to move back in.

You have some bruises from this one that will need time to heal. I need you all to myself right now. It won't always be like this but right now, I need you to myself. Trust me. Trust my love. Trust me, my love.

Feelings...

My prayer:
Mighty God. I am a bit of a mess tonight. I am way too focused on me tonight. You know how that messes me up. Why is it that no matter how many amazing and incredible things you do in my life, I eventually get stuck thinking about the things I don't have instead of the things I do have? I hate that about me. I get all tied up about what hasn't happened yet instead of loving what has happened.

I know you tell me you created me to be always wanting the next new thing, but sometimes that works against me I think. Or maybe I just think about it wrong. I'm sure it is me. I am sure that if I could see it all from your viewpoint, it would make sense. But, I am looking at it right now from my viewpoint and I am feeling alone, lonely and disconnected. I am feeling like I am off by myself and I don't like it.

I can already hear you saying, "don't trust your feelings" and "you are not alone", but sometimes, the feelings are very real and hard to dismiss. God, I need your help, right now, tonight. I need your comfort, right now, tonight. I need you, right now, tonight.

What God said tonight:
Your healing is not quite complete. You are not quite whole. That is why you still struggle with this now and then We have some more work to do. We have some more time to spend making you whole.

You have been created to be whole and to be my perfect daughter. Life gets in the way and takes chinks out of you. But, I can fill them back up. Let me fill you tonight daughter. Let me hold you and let you know that you are never alone again.

You are never on your own again. You will always have me on your side. You will always have me in your corner. You will have so many others in your life as well too. You are more loved than you know. You have more people on your side than you know. But regardless of that, I am on your side. I, the most high God of all creation is on your side and I love you more than you will ever imagine.

You will know from this moment on that I am yours. I an in you and will never leave you. Feel my presence and know that I am God but I am also you Daddy and your husband. I am the love that you yearn for. I am what you are searching for and I am here, for you, right now.

Reach out and feel me in your spirit. I wish I could reach out and touch you in the physical but that would freak you out a little too much. Some day. Some day we can be close like that, but for now, feel my in your heart and in your spirit knowing that my love for you is more real than anything else in the world.

I love you. You are not alone. You are not disconnected. You are my daughter, a royal priesthood and everything I planned for you is coming into existence. Love you with my whole presence. Feel me tonight. Trust that feeling.

It's the heart...

My prayer:
God, my God. I don't know how to express how I feel tonight. I don't know how to tell you how amazing you are. I don't know how to let you know how much I appreciate you and all that you are doing. My words seem so inadequate. I feel like I have said it all before and it doesn't say enough.

If I could write songs, maybe I could find the words to tell you. If I could speak more eloquently, maybe I could find the rights words. If I knew how to do it better, I would.

I love you. Your presence in my life is more important than the breath in my lungs. I wouldn't care to take another single breath if you were not with me. God, hear my heart tonight. Show me how to worship in spirit and in truth. Show me how to love you. Show me what matters to you.

Thank you for every opportunity you have brought me. Thank you for every miracle you have done. Thank you for loving me through every hurt. Thank you for prospering me. Thank you for taking care of my family, my friends. Thank you for dreams being realized. thank you for healing us inside and out.

I love you.

I LLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOU!

What God said tonight:
Sweet daughter, you don't have to try so hard, although I appreciate that you try. It shows me how much it means to you. That you care enough to struggle to find the words or the actions to show me love, means more than the words or actions themselves. There is the saying that it is the thought that counts. It is true. It is the thought, the heart that matters.

I see your heart. I see your love. I know what all of this means to you. I know what I mean to you. And as much as I mean to you today, as we continue to walk through life together, we will get closer, and I will mean even more to you.

There will be a day when there is no distance between you and me. We get closer everyday and one day, we will be as one. You sing that song about "until you and I are one." That day is coming.

I love you so much. I want you to feel that love tonight. See my heart as I see yours. Experience the overflow of love that I have for you. Fill up on it. Fill to overflow on my love. I will never run out of love for you. Come to me whenever you need a refill. I always have more.

Love out of the love we have for each other. Love you neighbor, your friend, your enemy , the stranger as an overflow of my love for you. Keep love as the center and the purpose and you will never lose.

Give, love, pray, worship and relax. I have it under control. I love you back, now and forever. Rest in my love tonight again. I never tire of your love or of loving you. There is nothing that I would rather do.

Give it away...

My prayer:
God, I love you and remain in awe. What's on your mind tonight?

What God said tonight:
Your worrying about the wrong things. You are worrying about the things to come, trying to figure it out, but you should know by now that I have this all taken care of. The timing, the content, the response, everything. I have ordered your steps and you just need to keep up.

I know you didn't bring up the worry, but I have been with you all day and know what's been on your mind. I know your prayers before you say them. I know your needs before you do. That doesn't mean that I don't want you to ask. "You have not because you ask not" is a very true statement. But sometimes, when we are close like this, you don't always have to say it for me to answer it.

I want you to have such confidence in my direction over your life that you don't worry about anything. I want you to trust so much in what I am doing that you don't ever lean on your own understanding of the situation. You will be moving into areas and arenas that you could not imagine before. You will need to trust me as you move into these areas.

You know what I can do. Stop worrying about what you can or can't do. I will work in you and take care of all that we need to accomplish. I love you and I will prosper you. You are the head and not the tail You are a royal priesthood. You are the apple of my eye.

You are all of this, but not for your own sake. You are all of this for the sake of others. I bless you so that you bless others. I prosper you so you will prosper others. I take care of your needs so you will take care of others. I love you so you will love others.

Every gift I give you is meant to be given away. But don't worry, everything you give away will come back to you multiplied, so that you can give it away and so it can come back multiplied again. Sowing and reaping is a real principle. It is true of everything in your life. I sow into your life and expect to reap the benefits. You sow into others lives and you will see the benefit. You will always receive more than you can give as long as you never stop giving.

I love you sweet daughter. One day closer to the next step...

I need you...

My prayer:
God, Lord, Saviour, Daddy, I am at a loss for words. I am so grateful God. You are answering prayers so quickly and so decisively right now! God, thank you for the praise reports of no cancer in the biopsy results today, of the 3 week old baby who fell down the flight of 14 cement stairs and only had one small scratch above one eye, of the rain today in Boulder to put out the fires, and so much more.

You are an awesome God. Thank you for hearing our prayers and acting on them. Sometimes, there is such a delay from prayer to answer that I can get discouraged and wonder if you heard me. But, it is in seasons like this where we pray and you answer even before I am looking for the answer that remind me that you are God, you hear every prayer, you are magnificent and you are working in my life to take care of me and all that concerns me. Who does that? What other god can promise to take care of my every need and every concern for the rest of eternity.

You promise you will guide me always, give me the desires of my heart and hear my prayer. You God, the creator of the universe, take time to listen to and take care of me and the people I care about...that is pretty incredible when I think about it.

God, there are some prayers, some true needs that are not yet met. I pray God for resolution to those situations that you are aware of. I pray for understanding and wisdom regarding the situations and help to maintain my constant faith in you to accomplish all that you have promised.

I love you so much. I love spending time with you. I love talking to people about you. I love you God.

What God said tonight:
This is a great time in history. Pay attention because you will want to remember this time. This is the beginning of many things and the ending of things that have died. You will experience great levels of satisfaction during this time, both from the beginnings and the endings.

You are blessed to live in this time and this place doing the things that you are doing right now. There is no greater time to come to me and to know me than right now.

I need soldiers. I need disciples willing to say yes to me. I need warriors who will fight the good fight of faith. I need people willing to love the unloveable. I need preachers to spread my word. I need servants to serve my people. I need you and all that I have put in you for there is so much to get done right now.

I will equip you with everything that you will need if you just say yes. Do not fear. You are ready. You are prepared. You are in position. Just say yes. you are going to be amazed at the effectiveness that you begin to see in your life. Things that you have struggled to move forward for years will move forward without effort.

You will be amazed at the reach of your obedience to me. It will have such an effect, you will not be able to measure it, though you will try (see, I do know you my sweet daughter). I love you and you keep saying yes. You keep choosing me and see what we can do.

My angels surround you. You will hear their worship of me. My Spirit is within you. You will feel it's fire. My love covers you. You will know its presence by the love you give out and the love that comes back.

You are my precious creation and I am proud of your willingness to say yes. I am proud to call you my child, my friend, my bride. Shine on. Sleep well tonight my sweet girl. You will wake up with a renewed sense of purpose tomorrow.

Don't turn your back...

My prayer:
Wow God. Wow! I don't even know what to say tonight. You are so amazing. I am in awe of what you are doing. I am in awe of how you touch people. I am in awe of how you can take one simple thing, one simple idea and make it mean so much to so many.

God I pray that you continue to anoint and bless this ministry. That you continue to bless and prosper the ideas and the next steps. I pray God that you bring each and every person who you want to reach to the website, this blog, the blog on how to hear you. I pray God that you continue to guide this ship and thank you that you have promised to guide me always. I pray God that everything that you planned to accomplish through this crazy journey is accomplished in the excellence that is representative of you.

God, you get all the glory and praise! You are incredible, amazing, loving, strong, understanding, and everything I have ever or will ever need. Thank you for letting me be a part of what you are doing!

What God said tonight:
Quiet your mind a minute daughter. I know it is exciting, but I have more to say. I need your focus here and on me right now. Do not wander away.

Believe it or not, more people walk away from me in the middle of the good times than do in the middle of the hard times. It is easy in the good times to forget me. It is easy to focus on the fun, the joy the excitement of it all and forget that it was me who brought it all.

Don't ever leave me. Don't ever turn your back on me. I can't take that. I need you with me. I love you and have loved you from the dawn of time. Seek me as hard or harder during the good times as you do in the bad. Use the celebration as a time to be close and know that we did this thing together. Don't forget me and don't turn you back. For your sake as much as mine.

Thank you for you faithfulness daughter. Thank you for seeking me everyday, and night. I love you so much. My place is in your heart and yours is in mine. We will accomplish many more things. I have the next steps already planned out. Just keep walking with me and don't turn away. If I am ever not in front of you, turn around, you have likely turned your back without realizing it.

I love you and want to be your Lord, your focus, your love for the rest of your days. You and me girl. We will do this thing together.

Because I love you...

My prayer:
Wow God, we have been doing this for 100 nights so far! You are so cool. The way that you make stuff work is amazing!

Thank you God for the ideas that you give me. Thank you for the way that you prosper those ideas. Thank you for opportunities to serve you every day.

Today was fantastic on so many levels. I am just kind of giddy God. There's a word I don't have the occasion to use very often but it fits tonight. I can't stop smiling! God thank you for joy. Life without joy would be so ridiculously hard and painful. These seasons of joy, and the anticipation of seasons of joy, keep me going during the tough times.

I love you God. Thank you for all that you are doing and all that you have given me. God help me to do everything you need me to do. Help me to stay focused on what you want and not get caught up in what I think should happen. Help me to remember that who I am and what I am worth is defined by you and nothing else. God help me to remember humility in the middle of success. You are mine and I am yours God. What's on your mind?

What God said tonight:
It was a really good day. So much is moving forward. I am excited too. Part of your excitement is the overflow of mine. Your joy is the overflow of my joy. Your pain is the overflow of my pain.

Everything you feel and experience, I have felt and experienced. Not because I had to but because it was important to me to understand you and be able to love you better. Loving is about finding what the person you love sees as being loved and doing that. That was why it was so important that I did the things the way I did. That is why I had to come and first live with you before I could die for you. I had to know how you felt to know how to love you.

Everything I do is because of my love for you. I have said that before, but I don't know that you really get it. Every time you ask "why...?" you can know that my immediate answer will be, "Because I love you." Now sometimes, that answer will seem initially strange. Typically when you ask "why" it is over something hard or unpleasant. Answering with "Because I love you" may not make sense right away. But eventually, I will show you how even in the tragedy, my love and purpose will always come through.

Why did you have to wait so long? Because I love you and did not want you to get into something too early and be destroyed by it. Why did your Grandfather die when you were so young? Because I love you I made sure that you would always remember that relationship with the idealism of a six year old girl. He is always the hero in your mind and there is a purity in that which brings more joy to you than had you had more years with him.

We could go on, and we probably will at another time, but for now know that, "Because I love you." is the only answer I will ever have for you, because everything I do is out of my love for you. Be my lighthouse again tomorrow friend. I will shine through you.

Waiting...

My prayer:
Hi God. I'm here a little early tonight. No particular reason. I was just sitting out back, enjoying the night and thought it would be a good time to talk with you. This was a pretty great day. Not because of anything in particular but any day with you is a good one.

God, there are a lot of people in my life that really need a breakthrough. People who love you and have been trusting you but they aren't seeing anything move. You know how hard it is for us to wait. Especially when that wait starts to stretch out over years. We start to think that maybe our faith is worthless.

God I pray for breakthrough for my friends this week. I pray God that you show them light at the end of the tunnel of their situation. I pray God that you show them what you have for them, the plans you have made for them. Help them to have renewed hope in you and in their own futures and dreams. If they need to do something different, show them what to do. If they need to change something, show them what to change and help them change it.

God you know the reason I can pray this prayer so easily is because it has been my personal prayer for years. I am so appreciative of what you are doing in my life and the dreams that you moving forward. The waiting was hard. Help my friends in the waiting.

I love you God. Thank you for understanding that it is not that we don't love or trust you, we just have a hard time waiting.

What God said tonight:
I know it is hard to wait but there is so much value in waiting. It is in the waiting that you gain your strength and your faith. It is in the waiting that you grow. It is in the waiting that you consciously choose me, even when it doesn't look good.

Don't despise the waiting even though it is hard. Remember the value of the waiting. The waiting will prepare you for what comes next. Could you have done what I am asking of you now even two years ago. You know the answer is a resounding NO.

You needed the waiting to prepare and you will hopefully always be waiting on something. Always growing, trusting and believing for more. When you achieve, receive or get to that thing you are waiting for, it is not a final destination. There is no final destination. You have everlasting life with me. There is no end, there is only today and the next thing. There is only you and me forever.

You have signed on to a life of joy with me throughout eternity. The other choice was an eternity in hell with satan. You made the right choice. When you start seeing waiting as a good thing, as a sign that you are not finished, you are not done in, that there is still purpose and a plan for you to fulfill, it will be less difficult.

I will continue to provide hope when you need it. I will provide glimpses of the future to keep you encouraged, but keep your eyes open. Sometimes I provide those cues, that hope and you miss it because you are so stuck in being miserable in your waiting. Make a different choice so you can see the hope I give to you.

I love you sweet daughter. You are the apple of my eye and the warmth in my heart. Let's hang out a bit tonight. The work is done, let's just enjoy being together...

Nature...

My prayer:
Amazing God, what an amazing day. The mountains on that trail today were unlike any I have ever seen. It was so beautiful! You are so incredible. You made things so gorgeous for us. You created such a beautiful and perfect world. Thank you. You are so generous God.

Thank you for the time with mom. Thank you for a mom who is my best friend, teacher and so supportive. You have truly blessed me with her God.

Thank you for a day of beauty, fun and refilling. I am ready to hit the road running again tomorrow God. There is so much to do and it is all so exciting. Thank you for the assignments you have given me. Thank you for the opportunities to serve you and your people.

God tomorrow is Sunday, the day we get together to formally recognize and worship you together in churches all throughout the world. I pray God your anointed presence and spirit in every service tomorrow. I pray that each service, each Pastor, each servant, each member and each visitor be a blessing to you God. I pray that your will is accomplished and that you teach us what we need to know for this week.

I love you Father. amen.

What God said tonight:
Your so aligned with my purpose right now. I don't think we have ever been more in sync than right now. You can trust your instincts right now because your instincts are my instincts. With all that we are doing right now, trust you instincts.

Continue to do what I have shown you. Don't fall into old patterns. Take what I have shown you, taught you and teach. You were born to teach so teach.

I love you daughter. Today was good for me too. I loved showing you that area, those mountains, that water, those plants. I love seeing how you appreciate it all and love me for it. I love to spend time with you anywhere but I really love to spend time with you out in nature where you can see and be a part of what I created for you. You will always know my love for you when you look at the beauty I created for you. Let it always be a reminder to you of my love.

There is a lot more to say but now is not the time. Rest and be blessed. We will meet up and be back at it tomorrow. There is a lot to do tomorrow, but you won't do it alone. I love you my daughter, my love.

Unique relationship...

My prayer:
Huh, that was different. God, we had this all written out and it suddenly was erased and gone right before I hit publish...guess we will start over.

I love you and worship you God. What do you want to say tonight?

What God said tonight:
The first time through was just for you and specific to what was going on with you. Sometimes, most of the time, those things, those experiences are transferable, many people are feeling them as well, which is why I told you to publish these in the first place. But sometimes, I have things that are really just for you.

I love all of my children. But I also have a unique relationship with each and every one. I loved King David, he was such a worshipper and he had my heart. I worked with and trusted Moses. He and I could talk things out and plan for the next steps of Israel. I relied on Elijah.

I love you all, but our relationships can be different based on who you are and how we know each other. I so desperately want to be close to each of you. I want the relationship we were meant to have. The relationship that Adam and I had in the garden before it all fell to sin. I want that with each of you but it will look different for each of you.

Come and get to know me. Spend time with me. Love me and I promise I will meet you right there every time. Seek and you will find me. Remember playing hide and seek? It is like that, but I am not hiding. I am right here. Seek me, I am easy to find. I will show you and share with you as much as you are willing to take.

I love you daughter. Keep up the fight of faith and rest in my love and care for you. Tomorrow is exciting!

What I fear...

My prayer:
God of the universe and all creation. You are so amazing. Thank you for this day. Thank you for bringing me to this time with you.

God, I find my mind kind of jumping all over tonight. What if I run out of things to say on this blog? But then, it is just my prayers to you and the rest is all you. I never run out of things to talk to you about. What if I mess up the next steps? You have me doing all of this great new and fun stuff with the web site, the book, the training, what if I mess it up and get it all wrong? What if I am just simply not good enough? What if you want me to do something and I talk myself out of it? Life is very exciting right now and I am loving it, but sometimes I get to wondering, what if?

I hate "what ifs" God. They don't do me any good but they are so persistent. What if I don't do anything meaningful. What if I don't help anyone. What if I get to heaven and you show me the millions of opportunities that I missed because I was too busy, too lazy, too scared, too whatever. God, I fear that. I fear letting you down. I fear letting down the people you put in my life. You say 365 times in the Bible, do not fear. I try, but these things scare me.

I love you God and I want so much to do your will and be your hands and feet everyday. Am I good enough?

I love you.

What God said tonight:
You are good enough but not in your own power or your own essence. You can always know that you are good enough because your goodness does not come from you and is not dependent on you. Your goodness comes from me living in you. It comes from the salvation you received when I died on the cross. That is why you can always know that you are good enough to be my hands, my feet, my mouth and my servant here on earth.

You will definitely miss opportunities in this life. I am so busy blessing you, you are bound to miss some of them. But, I don't ever ask you to be perfect. Perfect is boring. I ask you to be you. In being you, willingly choose me. That is what I ask. That is what my makes my heart leap. When you choose me.

When you have a choice between the world and me and you choose me. When you have a choice to spend time with me or go to bed early and you choose me. When you have a choice to turn on the tv and you choose to worship me. Those are the times I am most proud and most ga-ga over you.

Keep choosing me, I will keep bringing the opportunities and together we will change the world. It is written. I love you my pet. Rest again in me to prepare for tomorrow.
