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.

Get out of your head...

My prayer:
Mighty God and awesome Father.  The creator of everything that ever was or ever will be.  You are so amazing and beyond my ability to really comprehend God.  I learn more about you and get to know you better every day and still feel like I only know the very tip of who you are.  There is so much to you. 

You who are all knowing and all powerful.  Let me try to wrap my mind around that a minute.  You know EVERYTHING.  My Dad, My Lord knows everything there ever has been to know or ever will be.  You have the answer to every question, even the ones that are never asked.  EVERYTHING. 

Ok, so if I can find a way to understand that, now to understand that you are all powerful.  You are the most powerful force ever.  Nothing is more powerful than you.  You are more powerful than earthquakes. 

Let's say I get that, I am not sure that I really do, but let's say I do.  Now, you are the creator of everything that ever has or will exist.  You created the air, the water, the animals, the plants, the planets, the stars, the molecules, me. 

You are the Alpha, the beginning.  Before there was anything, there was you.  And, somehow you are also the Omega, the ending.  After everything is gone, at the end of everything else, you are there.  That is about where my ability to comprehend you ends. 

Then, to realize that you are all of that and more, and you love me.  You take time to make sure my life is going according to plan.  You take time to talk to me every day.  You take time to make sure I am loved every day and provided for.  You listen to me every day no matter how small or petty my thoughts may be.  How is that possible? 

God, I think I have been in "church" long enough now that I take for granted some things.  We always talk about you being Alpha and Omega, all knowing, all powerful, creator of all things and more, but I am not sure that I have really spent time thinking about what that all really means. 

God help me to truly understand you better. Help me to truly know you better.  Help me to have a deeper understanding of who you are and what is important to you.  Help me to know you and understand you.  I love you God and I want to know everything there is to know about you.

What God Said Tonight:
You are getting to know me better every night and every day.  You get to know me better every time you read the Bible.  You get to know me better every time you pray.  You get to know me better every time you listen to me.  You get to know me better every time you look at this world and wonder at the creation of it all. 

I love you daughter and you know me better than you think.  I gave you a mind and I love that you use it to reason me out, to think about me logically.  However, much of knowing me is Spirit, emotion, heart connection.  So much of knowing me is felt, not reasoned. 

Your brain can understand much about me but even if you study every minute of every day for the rest of eternity, you will never fully know me that way. Much of who I am has to be experienced, not reasoned.  I know you like to think things through. You like to use that brain I gave you and that is good.  But really, get out of your head tonight and feel me.  Get out of your head and experience me.  Get out of your head and see me.  I am here with you now.  Know me by being with me and me being with you. 

Part of why I got angry with the religious people when I was on earth was because they had gotten so busy with study and so busy trying to reason and argue it all out, they forgot to spend time with me.  They forgot that I had all the answers and if they asked me, they could save a whole of time and strife.  Ask me your questions, listen to my answers and take the time saved to just be with me. 

I love you daughter.   Don't stop thinking but sometimes, let your mind rest and just be with me.  I love you so much and I cherish our time together when you are focused on me.  I cherish you worship.  I cherish you attention.  I cherish you my sweet daughter.  You rest but stay with me always.
