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.

A new normal...

My prayer:
My awesome God. My mind is all over the place tonight. Today was a mix of wonderful things and frustrating things...a normal kind of day I guess. There is so much going on, some of it is important and a lot of it isn't...a normal kind of life I guess. 


God, I am ready for some extraordinary stuff. I am ready to see you move and do things that I can't even imagine right now. I am ready to see you do crazy miracles that no one will be able to believe but no one will be able to deny. God I am ready for you to strut your stuff!!! 


I love you God. I don't need miracles to love you. I just love seeing your power in action and changing lives. I want to be a part of that every day for the rest of my life. I want your miracle power to be a part of my "normal life." You are incredible God and I love you with all that I am.


What God Said Tonight:
You are a miracle junky my sweet daughter, but it is ok. I am desperate for people who are willing to look for and believe that my miracle power is still active and alive. I do so many things that get passed over or that people give credit elsewhere. At least with you, I know that you will point to me as the source. 


I have tried for years to get peoples attention with miracles. It seldom works. But, because I already have your attention, I can show you things that will blow your mind. I can do things in your life that will shake your understanding of normal. I will do things in this next season that you have only dreamed about. 


You are going to see the spiritual realm and the physical realm come together in a way that you have never known before. The barriers between the two is breaking down. It will not be long before there is no barrier and the spiritual and the physical will dwell together regularly. You will see a whole new normal then. 


I love you daughter and you will see all that you yearn to see and more. We are in for a very exciting time and I am pleased that it will be with you. I always wanted it that way.

Small act...Great sacrifice...

My prayer:
Hi awesome God! I was realizing something tonight...when Paul was in prison and writing all of those letters to the different churches he had helped to get started, he had no idea that what he was writing would become the bulk of our "New Testament." 


I think that is really true of so many things we do for you. It starts as one simple act of obedience to something that you put on our heart. It starts out with one simple blog entry on a warm June night. It starts with one kind act to someone who doesn't "deserve" it. It starts so small, but then you take it and it becomes something AMAZING! I am still in awe God at how many people you have reached through this blog. And that's just the people I know about. 


That is one of the reasons I am so excited about this next new thing, the Intense Prayer and Worship group. It has all the markings of one of those small acts of obedience that turns into something more amazing than I could ever imagine on my own. I am so excited to see what you do with it!! 


Thank you God for being a God of multiplication. Thank you for taking my small acts and turning them into amazing, life changing events. I love you so much God and I promise I will keep doing the small acts of obedience and waiting in anticipation to see what you do with them!!!


What God Said Tonight:
There really is no small acts of obedience.  You know how I have told you there is no difference to me between sins? All sin is the same to me. I hate it all. Similarly, all acts of obedience to me are the same. There is no small act or large act. 


There are some that require more sacrifice, but sometimes the act that seems so small is the one with the biggest sacrifice. Remember the widow's mite. She gave less than anyone but it was all that she had. Her gift was the smallest but her sacrifice was the greatest. I look at the sacrifice and I place value on that. 


What are you willing to give up for me? What are you not willing to give up for me? Anything in the second column, anything you are not willing to give up is something that has the potential of leading you down the wrong track. I won't always ask you to sacrifice it, but I need to know and you need to know that you would be willing to if I asked. 


It is like Abraham and Isaac. I never would have allowed him to sacrifice Isaac. Isaac was the future of my people. But I had to know that Abraham was willing to sacrifice everything for me so I could know that nothing would stand in the way of what we needed to do. 


I love you daughter and I gave up everything for you. If we are going to have the relationship I intended, I need to know you could give up everything for me. I don't want you to answer me now. I need you to really think about this. I don't want the pat religious answer where you glibly say you would give anything for me, knowing that I won't ask you to give everything. I need you to really think about it. We will talk more later when you are ready but think about it...

God's expectations...

My prayer:
Amazing teacher, my God. Thank you so much for what you said last night!! It made all the difference in the world. I had forgotten to pray blessings over him and as soon as I did, my heart COMPLETELY turned around and I saw it all in a completely different light! 


I can't believe I forgot something so basic, but thank you for reminding me. Thank you even more for releasing me from the bitterness. That was awful and I don't ever want to go back! I hope I learned my lesson for good this time!


God I love you so much. Thank you for being a God of love. Thank you for being love God. I sometimes try to imagine what my life would be like if you were not like you are. I try to imagine what life is like for people who have gods other than you. Not because I want that but I just wonder and it hits me every time that if your core was anything other than love, I would be so miserable. I would live without hope. 


I am not explaining it well God, but hear my heart. I can love you without reservation because you are love. If you were anything but you, I would not be able to fully trust or love and that would keep me from knowing you and having the life you planned for me. Because you are you, I can love you without reservation and trust you without reservation. I love that I never have to hold back with you. I can be exactly who I am and know that you love me. That is a really good feeling. 


Thank you for loving me, accepting me, and for being you God!


What God Said Tonight:
My sweet little bird, you fly through this life, doing  and seeing more than most people ever do and you still think that you are not doing enough. You still think that you are not good enough. You still think somehow that you should have it all figured out by now. 


Those are not my expectations of you. I expect you to be continually learning. I expect you to have to learn some things more than once. I expect you to stumble and I expect you to fall. 


I also expect you to learn how to get back up. I expect you to learn how to lean on me faster each time. I expect you to learn to call on me and to trust me more every time. I expect you to get closer to me with each battle and with each blessing. I expect that. 


I don't expect you to be perfect, ever. That is what my blood is for, to cover your imperfections while you learn. You are perfected in Christ and no other way. Will you ever struggle with bitterness again, maybe. Will you be quicker to turn to me, I guarantee it. That is what I expect of you. 


That is really the point of every life lesson. To learn how to turn to me for help faster and with complete trust. No matter the issue, no mater the problem, turn to me. Learn that and you don't need anything else really. 


I love you daughter, it is true. I am crazy about you. I will love you for all eternity and my love will never waiver. I adore you just as you are and I will teach you everything you need to know. Rest now.

Bitterness...

My prayer:
God I am glad this day is done. It was rough. Not really because of anything that happened but I was fighting a bad attitude all day. Problem was the bad attitude was mine! 


God, how is that I know what I should do, I know that I shouldn't let bitterness take root in me. I know that unforgiveness only hurts me. I know that all SO WELL! Life has taught me these lessons over and over and yet, here I am, knee deep in it again. I know better God and somehow, I still can't help myself. There was a brief moment about 4am where I got my mind straightened out and remembered what was important, but before I knew it, it was gone and I was back to bitterness. 


I hate this God. I hate that I know what to do, but I am not doing it. I ask for your help God. For whatever reason, I can't seem to shake this one. I find so many reasons to support how I am right and he is wrong and then I am right back into the well of bitterness. Help please God. I don't want to live with this hanging over my shoulder. Help me to forgive, let go, and get free of this thing.


What God Said Tonight:
I am calling you to a higher level. I am stretching you. This may seem like the same old battle, but there is a new level to this that needs to be overcome. 


You know the steps, pray for him, forgive him, and let it go. How can you expect to be on step two and three when you haven't done step one? It is not a formula but it is a proven strategy in your life. Remember the first principles. Remember what I taught you yesterday, apply it today, and see the results tomorrow. Pray for blessings on his life. Yes that will be hard, especially now because you know I hear and respond to your prayers. But, do it anyway, with sincerity knowing that it is step one to you being free. 


You need to be free of this not only for your self but for the people have put in your life. As long as you are bound in bitterness, you are no good to them. You will continually trip over the burden you are carrying until you release it. 


So, pray for me to bless him now. When step one is complete, you can move to step two and three and you will be free before you know it. I love you daughter and this will not trip you up for much longer. It is one more step in the journey and you will not falter, you will not faint. I see you on the other side of it and you are stronger and more at peace than ever. I love you  so much. Don't let this shadow cover you for one more minute.

Life choices...

My prayer:
Mighty and incredible God. This was a great weekend and exactly what I needed. Thank you. 


I am excited about this next week and the plans you have. I have to admit, I am a little scared too. I am not sure why I am scared. I know that this is what you want me to do. I know when I do what you want me to do, you bless it and it always turns out even better than I can imagine. I guess because this next thing is so important, and I believe could lead to so much more, it is overwhelming if I think too much about it. But, that is how I know it is a God thing. If I knew I could do it on my own, I wouldn't need to lean on you. And, God, this one, is ALL ABOUT YOU. 


I love you God. I pray and ask that you give me whatever I need to do this thing the way you want it done. I don't know what I need, but you do. Thank you God for letting me a part of your family and your ministry.


What God Said Tonight:
I never promised you a walk in the park. I never promised you that living for me would be easy. As a matter of fact, I told you just the opposite. I told you there would be trials and tribulations. I told you that there would be trouble and that you would be persecuted for my name's sake. I told you that you would have to give up your life to gain it. None of that is easy. 


But, and this is am important but, you will gain more than you ever give up You will be blessed many times more than you will suffer. You will have more in this life and after this life than you would have any other way. 


There are people who have decided that they will make a decision for me right before they die. That way, they can live any way they want and still go to heaven. There is so much danger in that. One, you don't know when your time to die will come. You may not have time. Second, you are forfeiting a life that has so much more to it than you can ever have without me. 


If you want a mundane life that spirals into to depression and death, than continue to live apart from me. If you want a life that has great highs and great lows and ultimate purpose in it all, then choose a life with me. 


I love you daughter. I am grateful that you have chosen this life with  me. We will accomplish much together. Do not be afraid. I am with you. Do not worry about what you will say or what you will do. I will speak for you I will guide you always. I am your Lord and savior and I am with you forever. I love you.

Tip of the iceberg...

My prayer:
Thank you for an awesome day of rest and refueling God! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute with you today. 


I love it when we go hiking together. There is something about being out in the amazing world that you created, seeing the mountains, the trees, the flowers, the animals, smelling the smells, feeling the sun and the breeze; those are times that I feel so close to you. Add some awesome worship music and I have some church all by myself! 


God I love you. I love you so much. Sometimes it takes my breath away. Sometimes, I am stunned by how much I love you. There is no me without you God. Thank you for being my everything and for a day to remember how good you and life are.


What God Said Tonight:
I have so much for you. I have warehouses of blessings that I have set aside just for you. I know that you don't come to me because of the the blessings I have for you. That is one of the reason I can so freely bless you. But, my sweet daughter, I want you to know that what you have experienced so far is just the tip pf the iceberg. 


I want you to understand that there is so much more for you in this life. I want you to live each day understanding that there is so much good in your future. I want you to have a new and greater sense of hope than you ever have had before. I want you to remember that no matter how good it gets or how hard it gets, I have a hope and future for you that is so good. 


Learn from the past, experience today, but hope in the future. 


I love you so deeply. I love you so completely. I love you with all of the love that ever was and ever will be. You are loved, you have a hope, you have a future, and you will LOVE IT! 


It is good to have you rested and back ready for the next steps. We have a lot of joy to spread my girl!

Rest...

My prayer:
God, my God. I am beyond tired. There is nothing left in me to give tonight. But, I can't end my day without hearing from you. I can't give in to sleep without hearing what you have to say. Love you Daddy!


What God Said Tonight:
You need to rest and rest well my daughter. There is much more to do next week. Next week is a beginning of so many things. But you must be rested and whole to contribute what I need you to. 


Rest, and rest well. Rest your body, your mind, and your spirit. Take your Sabbath seriously, even more than usual. Make sure that you are getting full rest. 


I want to take you away tomorrow. I want you and me to spend some time where I can fill you back up. I want to fill your reserve tanks I want you to have more than enough of everything this week. I want you to be so ready and so well equipped that the challenges of this next week are child's play for you. So easy and so effortless. You will know without a doubt that you are walking in my perfect will because it will seem so effortless. 


So, tonight, tomorrow, rest. That is your job and that is what I require of you. Take rest as seriously as you do any assignment that I give you. It is what I need from you to prepare for everything else. 


It is the base making everything else possible. Without the adequate rest, it is like building a house on shifting sand with no cement foundations. Rest, give yourself that solid foundation to build on and then build our new house together next week. I love you daughter, rest now and know that I am with you.

Sin...

My prayer:
Mighty and incredible God. My heart is a little sick tonight. I should not listen to the evening news. I hate to see what we do to each other. Every day it seems like we find new ways to kill, steal from, and destroy each other. Isn't that satan's job? Why do we so often help him out?


I am sorry God, I know focusing on the negative doesn't do me much good. Sometimes it smacks me in the face though. What gets into us? We are your children, created by you, and you are all good. How is it possible that one sin opened the door to all of the sin around us today? I would like to understand the significance of that original sin better. I have heard a lot of different teachings from a lot of different people, but none of them have satisfied me. 


It seems like there has to be a significance I am missing in that one act that could change the course of humanity. God, can you teach me more about that? Can you help me understand? Somehow, I think that if I could make sense of that, I might be able to not get so upset when I hear news like tonight. But, even as I think that, I realize that understanding the "why" won't really make it better. 


Sin stinks! It screws up so many things!!


I love you God. Thank you for forgiving my sins. Thank you for providing a way for me to know you and live with you forever, despite my sins.


What God Said Tonight:
What more do you want to know about sin my daughter? You already know that it is insidious and it will always take you farther than you planned to go. You already know that it grows like a cancer, like a virus, until it invades everything it touches. You already know that it is the source of so much pain and evil in this world. 


Sin is not a weapon of satan but it is one of his favorite outcomes. He loves it when he can trick you into sin because he knows that all sin comes with a price. He keeps hoping that one day the price will be too big and you won't be able to pay. 


Know that as long as I am your Daddy, as long as you are covered by the blood that I shed, you can't sin beyond my ability to forgive you. Now, that does not mean you should go and live your life any old way you want to because you have a "get out of Jail free card." Sin will still have consequences in your life and they are never pleasant. And as I said, it will always go farther than you intended. But, when you realize your sin, turn from it and turn to me, I will always be there. 


That is the part that satan does not understand. He doesn't understand that I will never leave you, no matter what. Be smarter than he is. Know that I am always with you. Know that when you fall into sin, all you have to do is turn around and I promise I will be right there to catch you, every time. 


I love you daughter and you will never stray beyond my grace and mercy. Go rest now. Rest knowing that while there is a lot of sin in the world right now, there is also joy, peace, and kindness. Try to find some of those things in your day to tomorrow to even it all out. I love you so much, now and forever.

Timing...

My prayer:
Mighty and incredible God. A day filled with favor, opportunities, and good friends...THANK YOU! Thank you also for helping me get some real sleep last night. I NEEDED that! 


You always seem to give me exactly what I need exactly when I need it. I know we say it a lot, but you are an on-time God! You are never early, but you are always on time. Thank you God for always being on time. 


Forgive me for when I get impatient. I am trying to be patient right now and it is a little tough. There are some really exciting things right around the corner and it is SO HARD TO WAIT!! I try to be patient. I try to enjoy the anticipation. I know people who enjoy the anticipation more than the actual event. That is not me, but I am trying to enjoy both. I know that in life, I spend a lot more time waiting for the great stuff than I do experiencing it, so I might as well learn how to enjoy the waiting. I just haven't been able to accomplish that yet. 


I love you God. Thank you for giving me something to look forward to and be anxious about! 


What God Said Tonight:
Waiting is a skill and a gift. You can ask me for help with it you know. I can teach you how to wait with expectation. I can teach you how to wait with joy. Yeah, to teach you that means I will need you have to wait some more.The only way to learn how to wait with expectation is to do it. But,if you can get this one thing, so many things in your life will be better. 


On time is also perfect timing. I am a God of perfect timing. I will never let you down but I will stretch your faith sometimes. Will you believe me when it is down to the midnight hour and you don't see how I can make it all work? Will you trust me no matter what?


Timing is really so important. Trust my timing and relax. Wait on me and everthing you do will reach its full maturity. When you try to rush things, you give birth to things prematurly and they are never as strong as they would have been if you had waited on my timing, waited for it to go to full term. Don't short change yourself by birthing things early. Wait on me, trust my timing, and enjoy the excitment in the wait. I love you and I will never make you wait longer than is neccessary but I will make you wait until everything is ready. I refuse to short change you. 


Rest in my love for you again tonight my sweet daughter. We have more tomorrow.

Without you...

My prayer:
Thank you God for blessing me again, all day. Fact is, with 2 hours sleep last night, I shouldn't have even been conscious today; but with your help, I was destined to succeed all day long. 


Life without you would be SO HARD!! Life with you can be tough sometimes because you never let me coast. You always nudge me to look at and work on my rough areas. Then, if I don't pay attention or if I ignore you, I end up wishing I hadn't. Jonah knows what I talking about! But, through all of the growth and pain, I always have you, I always know that on the other end of it, you have something amazing. I always know that I am not going through the tough stuff for no reason. 


Without you, I would have to face all the same stuff, and probably more because I would likely be making more bad choices than I do now; but I wouldn't have you to call on for help. Without you, when I got sick, I would have to suffer and dull it with meds. Without you, I would lose hope and never know what was on the other end of a struggle. Without you, when I only got 2 hours of sleep in a night, I would be worthless for the rest of the day. Of course, without you I would also be headed toward hell. 


I thank you for a life with you. I thank you for never leaving me or giving up on me. I thank you for being my hope in every situation. I love you God!


What God Said Tonight:
I am happy to be with you in this life of yours as well my daughter. I planned for us to live this life together. I counted on it. I prepared a special time, a special place, and a special purpose just for you to fulfill. 


You are a one of a kind puzzle piece. Without you, the picture would be incomplete. Without you my family would be incomplete. Without you, I would wait and watch every day in anticipation of your return. 


Don't leave me. Don't forget about me. Don't get so busy with the blessings in your life that you forget who blessed you. 


I love you so much and there is SO MUCH more. You will seriously look back one day and say "Wow, did we really do that?" When that day comes, hear me now, YES WE DID! 


You rest now. Tonight's rest is going to be good and you will be alert, awake and ready for one more day by morning. Live free my sweet but live in me, in my principles, and everything will work out, I promise.

You fascinate me...

My prayer:
God, my God. I am not sure what to pray about tonight. I don't really have anything to say...a shocker I know!! Maybe I need to listen and not talk tonight? I love you more than ever God and I am here for whatever you want to talk about.


What God Said Tonight:
You know you have plenty on your mind tonight but you are holding back. Don't hold back from me. I want to hear all of your troubles, all of your joy, all of your thoughts. I am so in love with you and I can't wait to hear what you say next. You are my creation, my daughter, my child who I love enough to die for. I did all of it for you. You are the center of my interest and you are all important to me. 


I get angry sometimes. I don't always love what you do. You are still learning and you make some choices that make me shake my head. But I don't love you any less for those decisions. I don't become less interested in you when you make a wrong choice or work through a new issue. 


I am fascinated by you and all of your brothers and sisters. One of the reasons I made you with a free will to make decisions was so I could continue to be fascinated by you. I could have made you like the animals, following instinct. I could have made you like robots, always obedient to your ruler. I could have but I didn't because I knew that the only way we could have a true relationship, the only way that you could truly know me, the only way you could truly be you is if you were given the ability to choose. 


Now, that comes with a lot of responsibility and a fair amount of pain. Many have wondered through the years if I made the right choice. Many have wondered if it wouldn't have been better for us all if you did not have so much freedom. I understand the questioning but trust me that it could be no other way and the reward, an eternity with me in true relationship, is completely worth it. 


I love you daughter. continue to call on me, continue to fascinate me. I am right here and I am not going anywhere.

Clear vision...

My prayer:
Incredible miracle working God!! Love you so much I can hardly stand it!! 


God I love it when you heal us. Physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The physical healings are the ones that get all the press and they are IMPRESSIVE. Watching you straighten J's back today was truly AWESOME!! But just as amazing is when you heal depression, when you are able to bring your joy in to overcome tragedy, when you restore a weary spirit. 


God thank you for continuing to grow and heal me. Thank you for healing me of the bitterness that I let take root.Thank you God for reminding me of basic principles today. Thank you for reminding me that the first and best solution to a problem is often to hit it straight on. Thank you for all that you did today and thank you even more for who you are. 


God, this week is another busy one. I pray God for your help, your strength, and your timing to be in charge this week. I pray God that you help me throughout this week with your favor, your strength, and your wisdom. 


I love you Father! I honor you today as the Father of all fathers and my eternal Daddy! 


What God Said Tonight:
I am here and I am with you. You struggle when you don't have to sometimes. You aren't seeing clearly right now. I will remove the scales from your eyes so you can see the true enemy in this battle. I will reveal to you the truth of what is happening and when you see it, all of the struggle will make sense. You will have a new way to fight and you will not be stuck or caught in bitterness. 


The enemy is really worried right now. He knows what you are about to do and he is working as hard as he knows how to distract and derail you. Keep your eyes on me. I will give you clear vision and clear understanding of all that is going on. You will have every weapon you need and you will have warrior angels with you to help. I have sent my battalion your way and you will not fight alone.


I love you daughter and I am here, now and always. No good thing comes without some amount of work, without some amount of a fight. But trust me in this, when we break through it, it will be so worth it. Stay the course and don't lose heart. I love you sweet daughter. Let's do it!

Father...

My prayer:
Awesome God I love you so much and I am so grateful for how you take care of me. There are so many dangers in this world, there are so many ways to get hurt physically, emotionally, and spiritually; but, I don't have to be afraid when you are with me. You take care of me. 



Often like today, you protect me from being hurt in the first place. Other times, you heal me through the hurt, turn it to my good, and make it another part of the tapestry that is my life. Either way, without you taking care of me, I would be afraid to get out of bed in the morning. 


Thank you for your protection, your covering, and your healing God. I am all yours. I pray God and ask that you anoint services tomorrow so people are changed and get to know you better. God I celebrate in advance every person who gives their life to you. I celebrate in advance every person who gains a deeper understanding of who you are. I praise you in advance for every miracle that you perform tomorrow God. I love you with my heart, mind, and spirit God. I am all yours.


What God Said Tonight:
Every good thing is yours. Every good thing is yours for the taking. I am your Father and I know how to give good gifts. I am your protector and I am your guide. I will teach you everything you need to know when you need to know it. I will be with you every step of the way. 


I am a Father that never leaves you. I am a Father who is never unfair to you. I am a Father who will never hurt you. I am your Father, your creator and I love you more than anything. 


As your Father, I can't always let you stay in situations, in sin, that is going to hurt you. I have to take you out of situations that will get you in trouble. 


I have some basic rules. Those rules are not meant to limit our life, they are meant to keep you safe. It isn't complicated. Love me and love your neighbor as your self. Do that and everything else will fall into place, you will be under my protection, and I will take care of you forever. You are never alone. I always have your back and your front for that matter. 


Always and forever my girl. Daddy loves you. You can trust my love.

Trekking with God...

My prayer:
Awesome God, what a week! It has been wonderful and has left me absolutely exhausted! I tried to nap a bit before meeting here with you tonight so I could pay better attention, but I think I am beyond the place where a nap is going to help. I am not complaining, I have loved every minute of the amazing things you put together this week. I can't wait to see what you do next. I love you and want to hear your voice tonight. What is on your mind Daddy?

What God Said Tonight:
A life lived for me will always satisfy. A life lived for me will always stretch you. A life lived for me will always take you a couple steps beyond where you thought you could go.

I love you daughter and I have such great plans for you. Don't try to do it on your strength though. Rely on me every step of the way. When you start to rely on your own strength, even a little bit, you end up exhausted.

Let me carry the load and you will go farther and walk longer than you ever could without me. It is like going on a long trek. You could carry a full pack with your tent and all your supplies, but you would not get very far every day before you were exhausted. However, if you bring someone to carry your pack for you, a guide to carry your load, you will go much farther and in the direction you intend without getting lost. Let me guide you and carry your pack and we will go farther every day on this amazing journey.

Sleep now and renew your strength. I love you daughter. Rest in my peace and my strength.

The Holy Spirit...

My prayer: Awesome and incredible God. I am thinking a lot these days about your Holy Spirit power. I have been thinking about how important that is to me. 

I am more grateful than I can say that you Jesus died for me so my sins are forgiven. I am thankful daily that you took a beating so I and all of your children could be healed. I love you as Father and how you take such good care of me, teaching me, protecting me, providing for me, guiding me. I love all of you. 
But what I think I am realizing more than ever is that without your Holy Spirit power and anointing in my everyday life, I can't make it. Without that power, the rest is just words and good ideas. Without it, I don't get to see your miracle working power. But with it, with your Holy Spirit power, everything and anything is possible. With it, I can expect to see your miracle working power. With it, I have the strength, the wisdom, and the gifts to do everything you want me to do. Without it, I am a struggling child of God, desperately trying to make it. With it, I am a powerful woman of God who can do anything. 
Thank you God for your Holy Spirit power in my life. Forgive me God if I took it for granted. I will do a better job of encouraging and sustaining that power in my life. I love you God. Thank you for everything that you are!

What God Said Tonight:
Walking this life with you is a joy my daughter. I am grateful for every moment we have together. There are things to do and things to accomplish but sometimes like now, is a time to experience and enjoy each other. 

My Holy Spirit power is meant for you. I sent it to you to be your help and your guide. It is ever present in your life. You may be more aware or less aware of its presence depending on what else you are busy with but it is always there.

It is what gets you up in the morning and what sustains you through the day. It is what encourages you when you are discouraged. It is what leads you where you need to go. It is my most direct connection with you for now. You hae neglected directly accessing that power lately but it remains there waiting for you. You have a lifetime pass to it. I sent it to be your helper and it will not return to me until its work is done. Until my work is done. 

There are so many things occurring in the spiritual realm right now. I am tempted to give you a glimpse but I am not sure that would be the best idea. For now, trust me that you being actively plugged into my Holy Spirit power is more important now than ever. I love you and have given you everything you need. Go and do what I have called you to do. My Holy Spirit will go with you, I promise.

God's dreams...

My prayer:
God, my amazing and wonderful Lord!! Thank you for today and the latest new thing! This new dream and vision for a deep Prayer and Worship Group is so beautiful and coming together so perfectly. 


That is the thing about your will God. When you give me a dream, once I say "yes", you simply pull it all together and make it happen. It is pretty incredible! 


Part of me is a little scared. I have never done this before and if it grows like I think it is going to...and then I worry, what if it doesn't work out. What if I don't have what it takes to provide the experience you have shown me for people.  But then I remember, when it is your dream, your vision that you put in me, you always show up and take care of it. 


Help me God to remember that this is all about you and really has nothing to do with my ability to do anything other than say yes to you. Help me to remember that you will show up and take care of it all. 


God I can't wait for our first group experience!! It is all I can think about!!! Love you more than I can say. THANK YOU FOR NEW DREAMS!!!


What God Said Tonight:
What a beautiful day today was with you my sweet daughter. I love your excitement. I love your obedience. I love you laughter and joy. I love that you are connecting all of the people that I bring to your mind and your heart to this new thing. 


This is going to be good and I can't wait either. The timing for this is perfect and you are moving in the rhythm of my will and purpose for your life and the lives of the people who will be touched and affected by this dream. 


You are so precious to me. I can count on you and that is a true gift to me. 


I understand that these new things are usually a little intimidating but continue to encourage yourself because you are right, I will never let you down. I will show up and I will take care of you and the dream. I want this more than you do and I will make sure it works out according to my plan as long as you are willing. 


We are going to new places and new levels and tomorrow will be better than today. Your tomorrows are phenomenal. Trust me and trust what you know about me. I love you so much. Rest and get ready...this is going to be GOOD!

God's emotions...

My prayer:
Awesome God of everything! How are you tonight God? My friend, my teacher, my guide, my provider, my Lord, my healer, my everything, how was your day? If there is anything you want to talk about tonight, anything, I am here. I am anxious to hear from you tonight...


What God Said Tonight:
You know the things that I think about and care about. My word and my every action points to one obsession. I am completely in love with my children and you take nearly very moment of my time and every bit of my strength. 


I am miserable without you and I am filled with joy when you are with me. I get angry when things come against you. I get angry when you forget the things I have taught you. I don't get angry for me, but I get angry knowing the hurt and trouble you are inviting in when you don't get it right. I get sad when someone misses their chance to know me. 


I love you and I only want the best for you.  


I have prepared you so carefully for this time and the time of release is nearly here. We just have a couple more things to put into place and then, bang, there you will be. I love you and you are constantly on my mind. I want you to shine for me. I want you to step out for me. I want you to be completely you but the best you that you can be. I love you and I am so proud of you. Go rest now and we will talk more tomorrow.

Run with it...

My prayer:
Awesome God, Happy Anniversary! I can't believe we have really been at this for one year!! And look at what you have done in that year; tens of thousands of people have been touched by you in 109 countries! I clearly need to go to the Philippines someday. They love you so much!


I feel like I should say something profound tonight God. I mean this is truly a milestone. I never could have imagined when we started this what you had planned for it. I have learned so much this year about trusting you, about stepping outside of my comfort zone and simply saying YES to anything you have for me. What an awesome way to live!


I think because I have taken time to really listen to you every night, I am more aware of your will in my life than ever. That makes it easier to say yes when I know what you want. I feel like I know you better than ever. I feel your love more than ever. I can never truly express my gratitude for this year God. It goes deeper than anything I can describe. 


I love you so much God and I can't wait to see everything this next year brings!! Sounds like it is going to be even more amazing!!!


What God Said Tonight:
Tonight is not about endings but it is completely about beginnings. Sometimes one thing has to end before a new thing can start. In this case, the new thing will layer on the current things and create a greater depth and anointing to reach people all over the world. 


I told you once that you would be in charge of a worldwide ministry. I don't think you believed me but look around. We are there and it is only growing from here. 


I have loved every night of this last year. I have loved getting so much closer to you. I have loved the trust and the commitment you have shown me. I love the faithfulness. I have loved being able to talk to so many that had been stuck. 


I love you all of you so much. My heart swells just thinking about you. I am overwhelmed with my love for you. I want to be even closer. I want you to know me so well that you never have to guess my will for any situation. I want you to know me so well that my thoughts are your thoughts. I want you to know me so well that your natural instinct becomes my will for you. I want you to live this life to the full capacity that I have given you and let nothing and no one hold you back. I have placed in you everything you need to run the race, get running. 


I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!!! I am so proud to be your Daddy. I boast of you in heaven all the time. My children, look there! Look how beautiful she is! Look, look over there, he just overcame that struggle!  And look, look there, they are worshiping me in truth and in spirit! 


I love you now and forever. Take this beginning tonight and run with it my dear. I will be with you every step of the way.

Coming together...

My prayer:
What a week God! I can't believe it is already time to start over. Thank you for all that you did and all that you allowed me to do this week God. It was truly an honor to serve you and your people. 


Tomorrow is our one year anniversary of doing this blog together. It is hard to believe it has been a year. I look back and remember that first night. I was so nervous but then I thought, no big deal, no one is going to read it. You proved me wrong on that! But what an immense honor it has been to be able to hear from you every night and to share what you say with the world. Wow, it isn't until I put it in plain words like that I realize just how amazing this year has been.


As you are stirring up this new dream in me God, my first thought has been, "Who am I to..." and I realize now that was exactly what I said when I first started up What God Said Tonight. I think that is the most likely question to ask when you put a dream in me. The dreams you put in me are always so much bigger than what I can imagine on my own. But, truth is, you always give me everything I need to accomplish it.


I am trusting you God in this new thing. I have seen first hand what you can do with an unlikely dream and I can't wait to see what you do with this one.


I love you so much!


What God Said Tonight:
Do you see it? Do you see it all coming together? Do you see how everything that you have ever done, ever experienced, ever learned, and everyone you have ever known is coming together for this time and this place to accomplish something beyond your wildest dreams? 


I have given you and shown you the next step but know that step is one small step at the beginning of something that I ordained at the beginning of time and have only been waiting for you to be ready. The time is now and the time is here. 


I am so excited that we are finally going to get this started. You are going to love it. There is so much to do but I will help you every step. I will ordain you to succeed. I will bless the work of your hands so that is multiplied one hundred fold. You will see the miracle of me in every minute of every day. You will be blessed beyond measure. You will bless others beyond measure. 


All that you have ever done, all that you have ever sacrificed for me, is coming into harvest season right now. It is going to be a harvest like you will not believe. I have surrounded you with the people I need in your life. I have gathered the people I need you to take care of. 


You will be blessed beyond measure if you continue to obey me and follow my lead. Don't get off track and don't get distracted. 


I love you so much and will never let you go. I love spoiling you and I plan to do a lot more of it. Stay in a position to receive and you will not believe the blessing.

Peace in any storm...

My prayer:
Awesome God, I am not sure what to pray tonight. I am not sure what to talk about. The last few days have been a whirlwind and my head is spinning a little. Thank you for giving me rest and some perspective today. Thank you for good friends who can help see clearly when I am a confused. Thank you for the opportunities you are bringing me. Thank you for being the God of all creation and still loving me so much. 


God I pray and ask for more Holy Spirit power in my life. I pray God that greater things than this will I see. I pray that the amazing miracles you have shown me are only the beginning. I want to see you do crazy wonderful stuff. 


I love you Daddy. I am all yours. Even if you never did another thing, what you have done already is enough. But, that is easy for me to say because I know you will keep blessing, guiding and loving me. I love that you can't help but love me. God change my mind and my heart where it needs to be changed. Show me the future path so I don't get stuck in circles of the past. 


I am yours forever God.


What God Said Tonight:
You are healed You are healed physically, mentally and spiritually tonight. You will begin to understand that healing more over the next several weeks but Know that tonight was the night of the healing. 


Tonight is the night for you to get free of anything that is holding you back. Tonight is the night for you to prepare because you are going to a new level very soon and you will need to carefully choose who and what you take with you. Not everyone can go where we are going next. It takes preparation and quietness of spirit. If you are at all not at rest, you may cause some rather disastrous results. 


You have found your peace in me, don't lose it. Remember that peace no matter what comes at you. Find that place of peace in every storm. I am your refuge and your strength and you will need an abundance of both in the next season. Listen to your prophetic friends. They are in your life for a reason. Everything that happens in your life, every person in your life, is there for a reason. There really are no accidents or coincidences in your life. 


Trust me, this is going to be big and wonderful.

Future...

My prayer:
I know I say it all of the time God but you are AWESOME!!! What a great night. What great people. What a great service. What a great reunion! 


And, God, there were a few too many coincidences tonight for me to think it was all just chance. What are you up to? I feel another change coming on, but I am crazy curious to know what it is. What is my next step God?


I love you and it is pretty late so I think I will turn it over to you so you can maybe let me in on  what you are up to?  Love you no matter what God!!!


What God Said Tonight:
You are not living in darkness. I have given you eyes to see, use them. The future is not a big mystery. You and I talk about it all of the time. 


Now, am I going to tell you the details about how we are going to accomplish everything I have planned? Not usually. Usually, I will need to keep that somewhat hidden. Not because I am trying to make you worry but mainly to make sure you keep your hands off until it is the right time. You always want to help me and I appreciate that servant's heart. But sometimes you trying to help makes it worse on you and me. So, there are things that are so important that I have to keep it a bit hidden until you are ready to see it or until I have something for you to do. 


Tonight was a beginning. Tonight as ordained from the dawn of time. You already know that we will have a great future together and you already know that the more you give me your life, the more of your life that you give me, the more I bless you at every corner. Anything you give to me, I will bless. Anything you withhold from me is cursed. 


I love you. Go to sleep before you fall over!

The end of the book...

My prayer:
Awesome God! You are amazing! The things you are able to do, the people you bring together to do them, the gifts you give us to do them, the way you work every circumstance together into your perfect plan...I have no words God. Amazing, incredible, awe inspiring, begin to describe what I feel but they all fall short. 


Tonight was awesome God. I believe that what you are planning for tomorrow will blow my socks off! THANK YOU GOD for letting me a part of your work, your ministry. Thank you for letting me be a part of reaching people for you. I am not now, nor will I ever be worthy but I am GRATEFUL!!!


God, help me stay focused on all of the amazing things you are doing. Please help me to not get distracted by the attacks and the spirit of judgmentalism and religion. Help me God to keep my eyes focused on you and your plan. LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!


What God Said Tonight:
I have had this plan for you since the beginning of time. It is fun to see you getting excited now that you are seeing more and more of it unfold. 


The plan has always been there. I always knew that we would be here together some day. That is part of why it is so easy for me to love you no matter what. I know where we end up. I know who you are after the mess is all over. I know who you are when you have been through the fire and have come out on the other side purified. 


You so often ask me how I can love you so much when you are such a mess and it is easy, I don't see the mess. I see you covered in my blood and perfected in the future I have planned for you. When you were crying out to be in full time ministry, I already knew this day would happen. I am always your calm in the storm and your peace because I know the end of the book. I know how you turn out. I know how we turn out. 


I know what the new heaven and the new earth is like. I have walked the streets of gold and it is good. You will love it so much. I can't wait to show you. 


Trust me, trust that the future I have is good, and enjoy the ride. We have some truly great times ahead. You are going to be glad you lived to see these days coming up because they are TRULY good! I love you daughter, try to get some rest. Big day tomorrow!

The tea cup...

My prayer:
Awesome God, thank you for your help at work again today. You are so awesome! I don't know what I would do without you.


So many things are so great now God. I am so blessed by you. But tonight, I had someone telling me that she admired that I was "there" that I had found contentment and that I didn't struggle...LOL! I tried to tell her that I struggle all the time. I tried to explain that the struggle is a part of life and let's me know that I am growing and not stagnant. I tried...but I don't think she believed it.


Why do we so often think that we have to have it all together. Where did we get the idea that was the goal? You never once told us that we had to be perfect. What you told us is that there is not one of us who is without sin. EVERYBODY sins, that is what you said. When did we decide that we are supposed to be the one exception to that rule? You know I am the worst at falling into that performance/perfection trap. Where does it come from God? The only perfect one is you. My only hope is to stay covered in the blood of Jesus and try not to mess up too bad. 


God forgive me if I ever made anyone feel like they needed to be "perfect." Forgive me God if I ever let anyone think that I have it all together. Help me God to better understand and reflect that this life is not about being perfect, except in being perfected by you through your salvation. I love you God, more now than ever before.  I love you forever.


What God Said Tonight:
You are reflecting me and it is my perfection they see. That is what you need to tell people, the "perfection" the "peace", the "contentment" they see is me in you not actually you. 


You are my willing vessel and I am so glad for that. Being my vessel I fill you up. When people look into you, they see the reflection of me like the tea in a cup of tea. Depending on their angle, their perspective, they will either see you, the vessel/cup, or they will see me, the tea. The cup may be chipped and flawed. It may have cracks and it may be misshapen, but the tea in the cup is still, calm, and no less beautiful because of the cup it is in. 


Your purpose is to be my vessel. The purpose of a tea cup is to hold tea. That people see me in you is only right. To help them understand that you are no different than them and that they can be a tea cup too, that is your goal. That is what will lead people to a real relationship with me. Keep at it girl. I believe in you.
