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.

Beauty in the struggle...

My prayer:
What a mess today was God!  Thank you for reminding me all day that the struggles and problems were not as bad as they could have been and that nothing happened that isn't fixable.  Thank you God for helping me to to be able to laugh at the ridiculousness of how everything just went wrong.  It was about the time that I dumped the entire full diet Coke onto the passenger side floor of my car that I realized that this was one of those days that I could either get REALLY frustrated or I could just laugh and know that tomorrow would be better. 

I don't think I could have realized that even just a few years ago.  Thank you God for all that you have taught me.  Thank you for always stepping in and reminding me of the lessons you have taught me.  Thank you for the reminders and thank you that I don't have to get stuck in the struggle as often as I use to. 

I love you God, so much!  I ask God that tomorrow be better than today.  I pray God that you help me to be better tomorrow than I was today.  I pray God that you always help me to be better tomorrow than today for as long as there is a tomorrow. 

What God Said Tonight:
Perspective is a pretty amazing thing.  No matter how bad a thing looks, from a different vantage point, it is not so bad.  Take my death for example.  When the disciples heard that I was going to be beaten and killed they got very upset and started saying that it couldn't happen.  I had to stop them because from my perspective, although the sacrifice would be painful, it would also be my greatest gift and provide a way for my children to come back to me.  To me it was beautiful.  To them it was tragic. 

Find beauty in every situation.  I will turn every situation for you good, so find the good in it.  Find the beauty in it.  When you struggle, not only do you learn something but it gives you one more thing that will help you help others.  That is the beauty in each struggle. 

I love you daughter.  I was with you today and talking to you all day but the best part was you were listening.  Even in the deepest frustration, you were still listening for me and you were still turning to me. 

That  is the key to getting through any problem no matter how big.  Listen and turn to me.  I have the answer for every problem.  Learn to listen in every situation so you can have the answers that you need when you need them. 

Every day is a lesson and every lesson is a step to another level of satisfaction and maturity in me.  Stay close to me and I will take you to such great heights you cannot imagine.  I love you so much.  You are mine, beautiful, wonderful and all that I hoped you would be.  Rest now, recover.  You are safe in my arms.
