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.

Beautiful...

My prayer:
All knowing God.  Why is it that it is so easy for other people to see us clearly and so hard for us to see ourselves clearly? Ask any 5 of my friends and they could clearly identify my strengths and my weaknesses.  They could tell you the things that make me valuable to the people around me and the things that take value away from the people around me.  They may come up with slightly different answers based on their relationship with me and their own values, but in general, I would bet the answers would be similar.  But, ask me the same question and I will struggle a bit. 

God we had the message on Reverb online church tonight about "If you really knew you" and it seems like a really simple question, who are you? But, while it is a simple question, the answer is anything but simple. 

God I pray that you help me see me more clearly.  I pray God that you help me see my strengths and my weaknesses with a clarity that allows me to make changes and become a better person for you and for the people in my life.  God I pray that if there is anything that is keeping me from seeing me, like pride or fear, remove those things so that I can truly see me. 

God I also pray that you give me wisdom with the people around me.  I pray that you show me when and how to share insights.  I pray God that you show me how to always do it in love and never in judgement.  I pray God that you help me to always build people up and never tear them down.

God make me a better person so I can serve you better.  That is my prayer tonight God.  I love you.  What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:
I can absolutely help you to see yourself more clearly but you have to be open to see it all.  You have to be willing to see the good , the bad and the ugly.  You are always so quick to be critical of yourself, which can be useful for correction.  But what I need you to do is see the other side of the coin.  I need you to see the good that I put in you.  I need you to be ok with the fact that I have given you gifts and recognizing those gifts is not a prideful thing.  It does not have to be something you hide.  It should be something that you show to the world.  That is why I gave you those gifts so you would use them.  Not hide them. 

Don't ever try to to hide.  Don't hide your gifts or your weakness.  It is a waste of time and it inhibits my ability to use you and heal you.  You are my servant daughter and I know you love it when I use you for the kingdom.  Know that hiding from yourself makes it really hard for me to use you.  When you are hiding from yourself, you can't trust yourself.  When you can't trust yourself, I can't trust you. 

So let down your guard daughter.  You may be surprised at what you see. You may find that the truth is more beautiful than you could imagine.  You will see yourself through my eyes and believe me, there is nothing more beautiful to me than you.  My child, my love, you are the most beautiful thing in the world and I love you in your glorious beauty.  Peel back the layers and discover the beauty that I have grown inside of you.  You are like a budding flower that is about to open to the sunshine. 

Your beauty is just beginning to reveal itself.  Do not be afraid of it.  I made you beautiful.  Your beauty that I put in you will draw people to you and in turn to me.  Draw them in my beautiful daughter.  Shine in your beauty.  I love you so very much.  It is time to shine.

  1. Very good, celebrate the gift, stir up the gift,
    My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
