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.

The tower...

My prayer:
My mighty and incredible God.  How I love and worship you God.  You are so good. You provide for every need, even my need to learn and to grow.  God please keep helping me to grow and be everything that you want me to be.  What an amazing journey this life is. 

Sometimes it is all so exhausting.  Between the struggles and the joy, between the work and the play, it can all seem like too much.  But, when I just shut up and trust you, it all works out.  Everything that needs to get done gets done and life goes on. 

That's the crazy thing God, no matter how rough it gets, life goes on.  Everlasting life is something that I don't think I have truly understood God.  That I will live forever with you helps to take the pressure off of today's deadlines.

I guess I am pretty tired tonight God.  My thoughts and my prayer are kind of wandering.  Before I stop and listen, I need to ask you to help my friends.  You know the situations and you know what they need.  God, meet their needs.  Do your work in their lives.  And, more than anything else God, give them a new sense of hope tonight God.  Give them a hope to know that you have amazing plans for them and that tomorrow doesn't have to be like today or like yesterday.  Thank you God.  In Jesus name, amen.

What God Said Tonight:
You have listened to me for many days and nights now.  You strive to hear my voice in every area of your life now and that is good.  I need you to listen to my heart tonight.  I need you to hear what I mean as well as the words.  I need you to be sensitive to my Spirit at new level.  Sometimes the things I want to tell you are too complex for just words.  I talk in circumstances sometimes just for this reason.  Sometimes what I need to tell you cannot be expressed in words but it can be expressed through an experience. 

I use parables a lot because of that.  Sometimes a story about a situation with the emotion and spiritual aspects can say more than words alone. 

You are building a tower.  The tower is not very strong yet but it is building both up and out.  It is new and you can still see the underlying structure.  It seems almost raw and fragile but if you try to knock it over you will see just how sturdy it is.  It is made up of many bands, many sinews.  Each of them are people, relationships, experiences in your life.  You are building a strong tower. 

You will want this tower in the days to come.  You will find protection in it and you will find a platform to speak on it.  Right now it doesn't look like much.  It is still mostly raw materials and mud.  But some day people will come from miles around to see your tower.  You will always point to the tower and say, "See what God did."  That is part of why the tower is so good.  You will never take credit for it and for that reason it will never be torn down.  Your tower will stand forever.  It will be monument to me and I am pleased with it. 

I am sorry to be so cryptic tonight but as I say, some things need to be felt and experienced more that just heard.  Listen with your heart tonight and you will be able to see the tower.  I love you daughter and will never ever stop.
