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.

Multiplication...

My prayer:
Awesome God, what a great year this was!!! This truly was the best year of my life so far and I am so grateful for all that you did. There were struggles and trouble, absolutely. But you took care of everything. You provided in every situation. You taught me each day. You showed me each day how to live closer to you. 


God, I want to apologize for any times this year when I lost sight of how amazing you are. Any times when I was ungrateful. God you are so perfect and I am not perfect. Thank you for loving me anyway. Thank you for prospering me everywhere that I went this year. Thank you for healing so many people this year! You let me witness and be a part of hundreds of miracle healings! You know how much I love it when you do that!! 


Then there was the start of 24/7 Lighthouse Ministries. That was a surprise! I love what you are doing with that and can't wait to see what you do in 2012. Thank you for amazing friends and family. Thank you for reminding me how precious and important they are. 


Amazing God, it seems like each year gets better with you. 2012 should be beyond amazing!! I love you so much!!


What God Said Tonight:
2011 was about building. 2010 was about laying the foundation and this last year has been about building on that foundation. You have followed my lead and that has made things possible that would have been impossible otherwise. 


In 2012, you are going to see multiplication. You are going to see the spreading of my word and my message like never before. I am not messing around any more. Time is short and we have to get the word out. We have to make sure that every person has a chance to make a real decision. It is time to take off the veils and the scales that have blinded and blocked people from seeing me. It is time that my blessings be poured out and multiplied on my children. 


This year will be a year of hard work, but a year of celebration as well. You will see expansion and multiplication like you have never seen before. Be ready. I love you daughter and I am excited. You are going to love this year!

Light in dark places...

My prayer:
My precious Lord. Today was really good. Thank you for help in getting everything done with time to spare. I feel like a great weight has been lifted. 


God, I am not sure what to talk about tonight. There are plenty of thoughts going through my mind, but nothing really worth exploring or talking about. You already heard the prayers for healing for "A" and "D" and I believe you are already taking care of those. 


You know and supply my every need. So...huh, I really am out of words and you know that doesn't happen often! What is on your mind? I am sure it is more interesting than my babble anyway. I love you God and am so grateful that I get to know you personally!


What God Said Tonight:
There are places that in the past I have told you not to go to for your own protection. I am about to ask you to go into those places. I have prepared and covered you and you will not be harmed; but, I need you to go into some dark places and bring my light. There are people hurting in the dark places of the world that need my light, my love, my healing. 


You will need to trust me completely as you go. You will have to let me shine through you so brightly that the darkness cannot stay when you come in. You will need to radiate me like never before. I promise I will protect you but I need you to go. I will tell you where and when. 


Do not be afraid of it. There was a special time and place for these things and it is now and here. The darkness will not overcome the light. The light will vanquish the darkness. It will eliminate the darkness. You will be that light and the seed of faith that they need to see so they can believe again. This is hard duty but I promise you will be well rewarded. 


I love you daughter. Wait for my direction but it will be happening before you know it. I am yours and you are mine forever.

Not forgotten...

My prayer:
Awesome God, your presence is so thick tonight. I don't want to get in the way. Have your way, the floor is yours.

What God Said Tonight:

I am going to talk to you in a new way. I am going to show you some new things. I am going to remind you of all that you know and teach you the next thing. I am going to do this all because I love you and because I have a plan for your life. 


I have not forgotten you. I have not left you. I am with you always and I have never left. Lay your head on my chest and let me comfort you. Rest in my embrace and let me heal you. Keep your mind focused on me and let me bring order and peace to your thoughts. 


The status quo is over. "Things as usual" is about to have no meaning. But you won't walk in this new season and these new experiences alone. I will be with you every step of the way. Lean on me, let me lead you, let me tell you about this new landscape and prepare you for each step. You are ready for this. I have prepared you but it will require complete reliance on me. I love you now and forever.

Unforgiveness...again...

My prayer:
Amazing and awesome God. Seems like I am getting a lot of messages about forgiveness lately. That usually means I need to forgive someone. Weird thing is, I can't think of anyone that I am holding unforgiveness against...oops, guess I just had to say that for the person to come to mind. 


There is someone who made a decision that hurt me. But, I didn't realize that I had unforgiveness about it. I mean, it was his choice and he had every right to choose as he did. But, when I think about it, my thoughts about him have not been very kind since then. God, I will start praying for you to bless him tonight. That is always step one for forgiveness for me. 


Thanks for pointing it out God. Thank you for showing me the things that I need to work on even when I don't realize that I need to work on them. Thank you for bringing me the answers before I even know there is a problem. Life with you is GOOD! I love you God. What is on your mind tonight?


What God Said Tonight:
I will always be here for you daughter and I will help you to avoid problems when you listen to me and stay in touch with me. I have seen the future, I am in the future, the past and the now and I can help you navigate when you let me. I love you and I don't want you to struggle needlessly. 


I am glad that we are past the days (for the most part) of you getting defensive when I point out areas of correction. You have learned well the value of admitting that you are wrong. You have learned the value of quickly following my lead. It took a long time but you have learned. 


I love you so much daughter. My love for you is literally overflowing tonight. Can you feel it? It is flooding you, surrounding you, engulfing you. Embrace it my daughter. Embrace my love for you. Surround yourself in it to heal your wounds and to spread my love throughout the world. Spread it around like thick frosting on a cake. Cover every inch of the world around you with my love. It covers, it redeems, and it heals. I love you daughter. Keep your eyes, ears, and mind open to all that I have for you.

Tragedy...

My prayer:
Mighty God, I come tonight with a bit of a heavy heart. One friend who found out his wife is not keeping their vows, another whose daughter was taken out of state without her permission, and I just heard on the news that a local man shot and killed his wife, in front of their kids and then killed himself. 


My God, there are some truly awful things happening and there is nothing I can do about it other than ask for your help. God I pray and ask for you to step into these awful situations and somehow turn them for their good. I pray God that with your all knowing wisdom and all powerful ability, that you somehow help, heal, and change these situations and the millions of others that I don't know about. 


God, thank you for taking care of us. Thank you for the every day that there is not a major tragedy. Thank you God that no matter what is happening or not happening, I can come to you. I love you Father.


What God Said Tonight:
Things are not always what they seem. Yes, there is tragedy in this world every day. There is tragedy that is the result of sin that continues to run rampant in this world. However, there are other events and circumstances that appear to be tragedies at first look but later can be seen in a different light. 


Remember Lazarus. His sisters thought the worst had happened. Their beloved brother had died. They trusted me to come and heal him, I did not get there in time and he died. They were devastated by his death and even more distraught that they had trusted me and I had let them down, or so they thought. What they did not understand is that I had a bigger plan. 


The "tragedy" of his death was nothing more than an opportunity for me to show people who I am and what I can do. His "tragedy" was a temporary state that was completely reversed when I stepped in. 


Know that you don't necessarily know everything that you think you know. My will shall be done. I love your heart dear daughter.

Brand new,,,

My prayer:
You are my awesome God. You told me to start reviewing old posts from the last year. I started with reading what you said last Christmas and were you ever RIGHT! I never could have imagined the year that you have given me God. I never could have imagined the miracles you have shown me. I never could have imagined 24/7 Lighthouse Ministries. I never could have imagined the outreaches. I never could have imagined the success you have given me at work. I never could have imagined the relationships that you have put in my life and grown in my life. I never could have imagined. 


I wonder what I haven't imagined yet that you are about to do? I wonder what you have planned for tonight, tomorrow, next week, and next month? I love you so much. Thank you for letting me be a part of your amazing plans.


What God Said Tonight:
That is the funny thing about imagination. You can't imagine what you can't imagine. Your imagination is somewhat limited by the things you know or have heard about. There are very few brand new ideas in the world. Most new ideas are minor adjustments on things that you already know. Now, sometimes, those minor adjustments are brilliant and create great change; but, they are still only adaptations of what you know. 



Things are different with me. I can conceive of things that have never existed or been thought of. I had the idea of the earth before there was an earth. I had the idea of you before there was a you. 


I love creating. I love creating things that are brand new. I love to see the surprise and knowing grin on your face when I do something new. I love that when I do something brand new, it is hard for people to deny that it was me. I love the new. 


I have made you brand new. I have cleaned away the old and made you into a new creature who is capable of so much more than you ever were before. I love you and we have a lot more new stuff to do.

God's gift...

My prayer:
Happy birthday Jesus! What a wonderful day celebrating you. Worship was amazing. Thank you God for the visions and the interpretations! Thank you for time with family. Thank you for friends that are like family. 


Thank you God most of all for deciding somehow that we were worth the trouble of you coming to earth, being born, living and dying all so we could be saved and know you personally forever! Thank you. 


I celebrate your power, your love, your joy, your guidance, and your magnificence. I celebrate how you almost never do things the way that I think you should but you always do things in the perfect way to accomplish more than I can imagine. Thank you God that you still surprise me on a regular basis. Thank you God that the more I know you, the more I want to know you. Thank you God. I love you so much!!


What God Said Tonight:
Look out over the horizon. As far as you can see is yours. Your inheritance is greater than you realize. I promised land and dominion to you, to the seed of Abraham, to my followers and you have not yet seen the full manifestation of that inheritance. 


You have dominion and power wherever you walk because you are my child and you are saved and redeemed by me. There is no power greater than the power that you carry in you every day. There is nothing that can overpower you with me in you. There is nothing that is bigger than the promise that I have on your life. 


There is much more for you to see, to do, to have, than you have seen so far. You have a great future because you are mine. You have a great future  because you make decisions for me every day. Every decision for me takes you closer to the promise on your life. Every decision that is not for me, takes you farther away. Make smart decisions and get all that I have for you. 


Look out over the land, it is yours if you want it. It is my gift to you. It is time to unwrap it.

Forgotten pain...

My prayer:
The night before your birthday God. I don't know if I will ever get over the awe of that you, the God of all creation were willing to be born here on earth, grow, struggle, and die for me. It is really pretty unbelievable. I have heard the story my whole life and I still have trouble understanding the kind of love that motivates that kind of sacrifice. 

I am in awe of you tonight God. I am so grateful that you chose the things you chose to do. I thank you for loving me enough to sacrifice all. You are amazing God and I would not want to live this life without you. 

What God Said Tonight:
I know you cannot understand my love with your head. Love is not meant to be understood in the head. Love is meant to be experienced with the heart. Let your heart experience the love that I have for you. 

I love you so much, the sacrifice was nothing. The pain, was nothing. Just as a mother forgets the pain of birth as she cradles her newborn, the pain I experienced was immediately forgotten when I got to be reconciled with you. I would do it all over again, if I needed to. I would do anything to be with you. I would do anything to be with my children. 

I love you and I am excited to celebrate with all of you tomorrow. I am here for you always.

Where joy comes from...

My prayer:
Mighty God! What a great start to my vacation! Today had a little bit of everything...well, almost everything. 


God, as I start to think about the last year, really think about it, think about all of the amazing things you have done, how far you have brought me, I stand in awe with my jaw hanging open. How could I have ever imagined a year like this? 


When I started calling out to you about ten years ago begging for a purpose and a plan for my life, you had this year in mind. When I begged to serve you 24/7 you had this year in mind. 


I really have to remember that you know everything. You know the end from the beginning. I need to remember that I need to trust you when you say you will work it all out, and you have said that you will always work things to my good. I need to remember that you aren't just making a promise, you have already seen it. You know that it will all turn out to my good. 


God I love you. Thasnk you for the  most amazing year of my life.


What God Said Tonight:
When you have time this week, I want you to review the posts from the last year. I want you to see with some clarity that while this was the best year of your life so far, it was not always easy. I want you to remember that there were sacrifices and struggles. I want you to remember that at times you were confused, scared, upset, and worried. Then I want you to remember again all the amazing things. 


I want you to look through both and see how well you were able to rely on me for how you felt instead of relying completely on the circumstances to make you happy. 


You are old enough to know my daughter where joy comes from and where it does not. Remember it as we move forward.

Vacation with God...

My prayer:
Mighty God, I am falling asleep sitting up tonight but I have to hear your voice before I go to sleep. You are more important than air to me. What do you want to talk about?


What God Said Tonight:
I won't keep you up for long tonight. I want you to rest. Life has been hard work lately and it is time to rest, refresh, and rejuvenate. 


I want to enjoy this weekend with you and you will need to be rested for that. I am your restoration. I am what fills you up when you are empty. Let's spend a lot of time together, really together this coming week. Let's spend more time where you are focused on me. I have a lot to tell you this week. I have a lot to prepare you for. 


Will spend a little extra time with me? Spend time in worship, in my word, hiking together, and in prayer. Rest, yes, but rest in me so that it will actually produce the rest that you need. Have fun, yes, but have fun with me so it can fill you with my joy which is your strength. 


I love you daughter. Sleep now and let's spend this vacation together.

Jesus...

My prayer:
Sweet Father. I am reflecting on your birth more and more as we get closer to Christmas, Imagining what that day was like. 


There are a lot of traditional depictions of what it is like. Then there are the people who say that the traditional portrayals are wrong, that the manger was not a "barn" but was the courtyard in the middle of the familial home. There are those that say that Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem the night of your birth and those that say that they had been in Bethlehem for awhile when you were born. All very interesting to ponder. 


But, the things I think about are how were Mary and Joseph feeling? Did they completely believe you were the son of God being born in her? Did they have doubts? I mean, it had never happened before. I would think they had to have some level of doubt. Then, when the angels began to sing, the shepherds came to see you, and then the Magi, WOW! That had to confirm for them that something crazy, wonderful, and special was happening. 


God, I hope that Mary and Joseph were blessed abundantly for their obedience and willingness. We don't get to hear much about Joseph over the years. Did he have a good life? What was it like to be the earthly "father" of the Son of God the Father? Did he fell honored or did he feel inadequate? What happened to him between the time that we hear about him when you were young and the time you began your ministry. Was he still around? 


Then there is Mary. We have always been fascinated with Mary. The mother of God! Almost too much to wrap my mind around. One of my favorite moments with Mary is when after only one question to the angel who just told her that she was going to become pregnant by the Holy Spirit and give birth to the Son of God, the Messiah, she responds, OK, let it be done just as you have said it...Whaaaa? I am trying to imagine that. An angel comes and tells me something that sounds completely crazy and after one minor question of logistics, I say OK...I would love to think I am that obedient, but I don't think I could have done that. I am sure that is a big reason why you picked her, you knew that she could believe it and receive it (as they say). 


Well, I have really gone on tonight God. I am simply fascinated by how you accomplished it all. There were a lot of easier ways that you could have come to be our Messiah and savior. Thank you for doing it the way you did. I LOVE YOU!


What God Said Tonight:
I needed to do it just the way that I did. There was no other option that could accomplish all that needed to happen. I needed and wanted to know the experience of life. I needed to understand and experience the joy and the agony of my children. 


You have seen that I am a lot angrier more often in the "Old Testament" than I am in the "New Testament." The difference was my experience as a human. Experience breeds compassion. I understand the struggles. I understand so much better now. 


I hear you asking, "But are you not all knowing? How or why would you need to learn more about what it is like to live as a human?" It is the difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge. You are right, I know everything. I knew how I created you. I knew how the sin with satan and the apple robbed you of so much that I wanted you to have. I know and knew all of that. I didn't know what it felt like to be betrayed by a friend. I did not know what it felt like to be cold and hungry. I did not know what it felt like to be sick. 


Now I know. Now, I won't lose patience with you. Now, I will never stop giving you second chances to get it right. It was my absolute great pleasure to provide salvation for you. And now that i accomplished that, I am ready to wait as long as it takes for you  to be all that I intended you to be. I love you daughter. You are precious and exactly what I hoped for.

Get your roof on...

My prayer:
Thank you God for your favor on my life today. You bless me and I am so grateful! GOD I GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY AND HONOR FOR EVERY SUCCESS IN MY LIFE. Anything and everything that is good in me or that happens to me is because of you. 


God, I understand that hard things happen in this life too. I understand that those things can bring me closer to you and make me stronger, better able to help others. I understand that for those reasons, I should not hate the hard times. 


But, I LOVE THE GOOD TIMES!!! I love when you show off and show everyone what they can have and be if they just make a decision to have you in their lives. I love to brag on you. I love to see others brag on you. I love to see people who don't know you yet, get a little uncomfortable, not be able to refute the evidence in their face. LOVE IT!!! 


God, I celebrate this most recent success not so much for the success itself, although it was great and very much needed. But, more so, I celebrate this success as a way of everyone around me seeing what your favor can do. I love you God and I don't plan on ever stopping bragging on you. You are too awesome not to brag about!


What God Said Tonight:
You are building your faith on solid rock foundation and not just the foundation, the walls the window casings, all of it is solid rock. You are building a faith that cannot be shaken and cannot be broken. You are building your house of faith to withstand the storm. 


I tell you, you will need those walls of stone. The storm that is coming will be violent and raging. You will need the protection and the shelter of stone. 


I don't see a roof on your faith. Without a roof, you will get wet in the storm. Finish your faith and you will be fully protected in the storm. Build a roof. I hear you asking me "how?" A roof sits on top of your house (your faith) and is connected but usually overhangs the edges a bit. Your roof is usually bigger than your house. That way, the storm that hits the roof rolls off harmlessly away from the house. 


Your roof is your covering. It is the part of your faith that is bigger than what you can believe on your own. Your roof usually involves other people. People who can believe for you, pray for you, teach you. They are above you but not in a haughty way. They are there for your protection. I know authority has always been a struggle for you my daughter. This is different. Their only motivation is to keep you safe in the storm. 


I have put the people you need in your life but you need to cultivate the relationships more. You need to be sure your roof is solid and without holes if you are going to stay safe and dry in the storm to come. 


I love you daughter. I am sorry for getting parabley on you tonight but sometimes those pictures can say more than words. I love you. Get your roof on.

Whiny...

My prayer:
Amazing Father. I am feeling a little tired and whiny tonight God but I don't want to whine to you. I have done enough of that in my life. 


I don't want to focus on the stuff I don't have tonight, but it keeps popping into my head. I want to stay focused on you and all of the wonderful things you do for me and provide for me. I want to focus on all the amazing things you have done in my life. 


It kind of feels like a seesaw in my head and in my heart God. I know that I should, and I want to think on the good things. And, I do for awhile, but then I start thinking about everything that hasn't happened yet, and I get down. 


And, now I realize, I am doing something that drives me crazy when other people do it. I tell you I don't want to whine and then I proceed to whine. God I am sorry. You deserve a lot better than me. You are so good. You are so perfect and I am so not. Thank you for loving me anyway. I would be worse than lost without your love.  


Ok, shutting up now God. What is on your mind tonight?


What God Said Tonight:
You know that you don't have to be anything for me? You know that I love you just as you are? You know that I cover you in my blood because I don't expect you to be perfect or even good. 


I am your God and I am your Father and I love you more than you can imagine. I have such joy waiting for you in the next season. You will have some of the big things that you are missing. You will see dreams fulfilled. You will be amazed at how effortless and wonderful it is. But, wait on my timing. 


When you have all of it, when the dream is fulfilled, you will dream a new dream. You will have new desires. I will take care of those too. But realize, just like I said last night, you will always be waiting for something. That is the nature of a life of hope. If you had everything that you wanted right now, you would have nothing to believe me for. You would neglect me. Not on purpose, but you would. 


I will shower you with gifts regularly. I will bring people into your life that will bless you beyond belief. I will provide opportunities  that are unthinkable to you right now. And, when we have done all of that, we will do more. 


Keep your eyes on me. Don't panic unless you see me panic. I love you daughter. Sleep well knowing that I really an in charge of everything and that I love you so very much.

Waiting with God...

My prayer:
Awesome God. I can't think of a single thing to talk about tonight. I love you, that has not changed and I pray it never will. I am grateful for a day of relative peace. I need your help with...well with everything. But that stuff is always true. What is on your mind God? Tell me how your day was. Is there anything you need? Is there anything I can do? Or, if you just need someone to listen, I am here. Whatever you want God.


What God Said Tonight:
I am waiting on  a few things. There are some things that need to happen before the new season, so I am waiting. 


I can see you making a face, but waiting for me is not as hard as it is for you. My experience of time is different than yours, Your life is but a breath in the grand scheme of time. However, it is a breath that is precious and wonderful to me. 


Come and wait with me, keep me company while we wait. Let's enjoy the scenery in the meantime. There are sunsets and flowers to enjoy. There are people to talk to and get to know. There are people to help and to love. There are fun times to be had. 


Waiting doesn't mean that life stops. You will always be waiting for something. Don't let it stress you out. I have been waiting for this time since the beginning of time and I am excited for where we are at and where we are going. You are living in a significant time and your life will have significance to eternity. 


While we wait, I will protect you, lead you and guide you. I will make sure that you are protected and whole. I love you so much. Wait with me awhile. It won't be too bad. I promise.

Trusting God...

My prayer:
God, I not sure what else to say tonight. We have been talking all day as the challenges of this day chased me down and try to  bury me. Thank you God that because I can trust in you, they did not win. I sit here tonight in full confidence that you will take care of this latest hassle. I can rest knowing that you will guide me through each step.


Thank you for walking me through this life. I would be so lost without you, literally and figuratively. I will trust in you forever. I will lean on you every day. I am not much but I am a giant killer with you on my side. Talk to me tonight?


What God Said Tonight:
Ha, you always end up identifying with David. He was a man after my own heart as you are. 


You don't know what you avoided simply by trusting me today. I know the circumstances did not look so good, but satan had a much worse plan for this day. Your trust, your faith, your belief that I will take care of you no matter what, stunted his plans. It kept his plans from having the outcome that he had hoped for. He is pretty irritated tonight. 


Trust me and I will move mountains for you. I will make sure you succeed. I will prosper you beyond your imagination. Trust me and the world is yours. I will give you an inheritance that you did not earn but is yours because I love you and you are covered by blood. You are adopted to me in my blood. You are the child of my heart and I love you more than I can tell you. 


Today was truly a good day. I know you don't see it just yet, but trust me, it was a good day. I love you. Rest now. I have got this.

Willing vessel...

My prayer:
Wow God, I don't even know what to say. I have no words. Prayer and Worship with the gang tonight was beyond anything I have ever known. Thank you for your anointing. Thank you for the prophecies. Thank you for the visions. Thank you most of all for using 5 month old "J" to lay hands on "D" for healing. I have never seen anything like that. He stretched his little hand out and laid it flat on "D"'s foot for 10 minutes without moving! It was crazy wonderful God! You can use anybody. ANYBODY! 


God thank you for the message on being a vessel for you. Thank you God for the vision of the vessel as a clear, white tube with nothing blocking you flowing through us. Thank you God!!!! AMAZING!!! I love you beyond measure.


What God Said Tonight:
You are welcome my daughter. I told you tonight would be special. You created an atmosphere to allow me to move. That is all I really need. Just an open door. Just a willing vessel. Just a opportunity and a little bit of faith. That is all I need. 


I don't need a lot of hoopla. I don't need people with fancy degrees. I don't need cameras, although they are good documentation for later. All I need is a little bit of space and an opportunity. 


Make space for me and I will do remarkable things in your life. Don't get so crowded and clogged up that you plug up my ability to flow through you. Roto rooter your vessel once in a while to clear out the clogs and I will run free and strong through you. 


I am desperate to pour out my love on the world before it is too late. I am ready to flood the world with love. I need to do it through you. I need to do it through the people who already know me.

Love it out...

My prayer:
My God. My Lord. My teacher. My Father. My Savior. My provider. My peace. My joy. My healer. My everything. You are mine and I am all yours. As we get closer to the celebration of your birth on earth I want to take a minute tonight to recognize that we belong to each other. 


You created me and then you bought and paid for me with your blood. I am clearly yours. And, you are mine...because...well, because you are. You are my everything. You created me. You love me. You protect me. You make sure that I have every last thing I need. I choose you. You are mine. And that is it. 


That is all that matters. My God, in the craziness around me, you are mine and I am yours. In the tragedy that I see around me, you are mine and I am yours. You are my island of sanity in the middle of insanity. 


I am so glad that we belong to each other. What a paltry word for it God "glad". I am out of my mind with gratefulness. I don't have a word for how grateful I am. God, let's get all your kids together and live above the yuck, the sin, that leaches throughout this world. You and us God. I am ready. Let's get on with it. I love you with everything I have that is capable of love.


What God Said Tonight: 
Where do you want to go? As long as we are together and you keep your eyes on me, peace is yours. My perfect will is yours. The only time you get caught up in the craziness and the sin is when you get your eyes off of me. We can live in paradise right here and right now. All we need is each other. My family together is all we need. Loving  each other. 


I hate when you fight each other. Such a waste. Sometimes you sound like two kids in the backseat of the car fighting over who got over on the others' side. Such a waste of time. 


Love on each other. Love people. I know it can be hard. They have their issues and you have yours. But love anyway. It is that love, the love for no reason, that will create the beautiful place that you dream of. That will create heaven here on eaerth. 


Love your way through. I will always love you. I won't ever stop. Learn to love with a tenacity that won't let go. Love it out.

The good life...

My prayer:
Awesome God. How do I explain how amazing you are? When I am sad, you bring me joy. When I am confused, you give me wisdom and peace. When I am happy, you celebrate with me. Nothing missing nothing lacking, shalom. That is what you are to me God. You fill every lack in my life and you add to every blessing. 


You truly turn EVERYTHING to my good. It is crazy but it is true. I love you God. How could I not? Everything good in my life is a direct result of you.


What God Said Tonight:
Living the good life is not so hard. It is entirely within your control. It is a reflection of your attitude and nothing more. If you live a life of gratitude, you will live a life of blessing. 


I am your source. I am the well from which everything you need is drawn. I am all of that because I love you so much. One day, I will be able to show you the full extent of my love. Right now, it would overwhelm you. You could not even fathom it. Know for now that my love is greater for you than you can ever imagine. 


My purpose and my plan for your life are intact and will take you places you can't yet imagine. You are my butterfly ready to leave the cocoon and fly free and beautiful.

STRESS...

My prayer:
Awesome God. Why is it that one of the most stressful times of year is when we are celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace? 


I am struggling with stress like I haven't in a long time and I am not sure what to do. The usual helpful tools (exercise, prayer, rest) are not helping enough. They are all good for short periods of relief, but then I am right back to being totally stressed out and letting stupid things bother me. 


God, I need your peace to cover me. I need your peace that goes beyond anything that makes sense to take over my mind, my emotions, and my soul. God, fill me with your peace. 


I know you are going to take care of everything anyway, what do I have to stress about? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. My heart knows that. I just need it to tell my brain and my emotions who can in turn reshape my attitude. 


I am done being stressed out. With your help God, I am done being stressed out. I love you God. Thanks for listening. What is on your mind?


What God Said Tonight:
Turn off the TV, the phone, the computer and spend more time in my presence. We are doing a lot right now. It is good. It is what I have always wanted to do with you; but, it will take a lot. If you are not spending enough time in my presence, if you are not spending enough time refilling with me, you will burn out. 


With all the demands of every day, find more time to spend with just me. Nothing but my presence. I will take your stress. I will give you peace. I will fill you with everything you need. 


Stop looking around and look at me. Stop trying to see the next thing that is coming and look at me. I promise I won't let you get blindsided. I have my eyes and ears on it all and I will let you know when you need to move and when you need to stand. 


We are about to go to another level, more new things. To get there, you need more of me in you. Stay still and let me give you what you need. I am your God and your Lord and I have everything that you need. Trust me, relax in me, shut off the world for awhile each day and let me be your recharger. I love you so much. This too will pass my dear.

Simple...

My prayer:
God you are good. You are so patient. You are so loving. You are so giving. You are so wise. You are so amazing. You are...God. Sometimes it is the most simple basic things that make me sit down and say, wow! 


I mean you are the God of all the universe. You created it all. You are Lord. You are ... that is it, YOU ARE! 


Simple basic things. I tend to complicate things and think that there is some great secret but you always bring me back to simple, basic truth. 


What God Said Tonight:
You got it. It is all very simple really. That is why I tell you to come to me as a child. You don't have to go to seminary school to know me. What a crazy system that would be. That would mean that I could only know the educated and the elite. When I came to live with you on earth, do you remember me seeking out the educated and the elite? No, I was with the people who needed to know me. I was with the sinners and the hated people. I was with the poor and the beaten down folks. I was with the sick and the suffering. 


The only credentials I need for someone to know me is that they have to want to know me. Simple. With that one simple desire, you have a free ticket to get to know me. Seek me, you will find me. Simple. 


I love you daughter. You are precious to me and I keep you in a special place in my heart. My children each get a special place, made just for them. Simple love.

Shared experiences...

My prayer:
Awesome God. I have been thinking about the paths that I did not take in my life. For some reason, I have really been thinking about "what if" a lot lately. I have always said that I don't have any regrets in life because everything that happened and every choice I made led me to right here and this is pretty awesome. That remains true. But, what if I got married when I was 18 like I thought I wanted to? What if I had a bunch of kids? What if decided to take off and roam the world? What if I decided to live for you sooner than I did? What would those lives have been like?


God, sometimes this life seems really long. Then other times, it seems like there just hasn't been enough time to do all of the things I want to do. And, then, there are some decisions that you can't have it both ways. You tell us that it is given to us one life to live. I kind of wish I got to have more than one. 


But then I think, that would just delay me getting to be with you in heaven or on the new earth and anything that delays that is not a good thing.


Maybe that is part of why it is so important to have other people in my life? That way, I get to live some of their experiences vicariously. It is not quite the same as living it out myself, but if pay close attention and ask a lot of questions, it might be good enough. Huh, I never thought about it that way but really, having friends, especially friends that are different than I am, broadens what I get to experience in life. Cool.


Thanks for that insight God. I love you and can't wait to here what else you want to teach me or talk to me about tonight.


What God Said Tonight:
Reincarnation is a seductive idea. The thought that if you get things wrong in this life, you can make them right in the next. But, it just doesn't work that way. When you get things wrong in this life there area consequences. There are some that I can protect you from if you are with me and have asked me to be Lord of your life. There are others that are rough but that I can use to have you help other people through your experience. 


Shared experiences are vital. You can't never know everything you need to know on your own. One of the things that I approve of with the internet is that it allows people to share experiences that otherwise may have never met. Connect with everyone I put in your life. There is value in every person and in every experience they have. The more you understand people and the things they have gone through, the better you will be able to lead your life and help the people around you. If you isolate and if the only experience you have is your experience, you are extremely limited and become ignorant of all that you could know and understand. 


Wisdom is a very fine thing and it comes from experience. Your experience and the experience of others.  I love you daughter and I am proud of you. Keep stretching and doing and being who I have created you to be and the blessings will overwhelm you.

With God...

My prayer:
Wonderful day God! Thank you! I am not sure what to talk about tonight. That usually means I should be quiet and let you talk. What is on your mind? Anything good happen for you today? Anything I can do for you? Love you!!


What God Said Tonight:
I took a run with you today. I rested with you today. I went with you while you got pampered. I read a book with you and I had a great meal with you.Today was a good day! 


I love being with you. We don't always have to be accomplishing things or studying. Sometimes I just like to be with you. No pressure, no worries, no desperation, but the joy of being together. 


You are never alone my dear because I am always with you. I will never leave you. But that is because you have chosen me. You have asked me to be with you and live in you. I won't ever push myself on someone who doesn't want me. That is not who I am. I am a God who understands my worth and I will not beg. But I yearn for my lost children. I ache for the wanderers. I mourn for those who have died without making a decision to choose me. 


Can you keep telling people about me? In your own way, not in their face, but tell them. I will bring them to you but please tell them. Tell them I miss them. Tell them I love them. Tell them I am waiting for them. They can't hear me right now so please tell them for me. 


I love you daughter and I loved spending the day with you. Let's do it again tomorrow!

Living word...

My prayer:
Awesome God. What a week of highs and lows! I am exhausted but grateful that tomorrow is Saturday Sabbath! Its funny how things from the Bible sometimes seem outdated but when I apply them to my life, I find that they really do still matter and work. The Sabbath is a really good example. I use to think that it was done away with through Jesus. But now, I know that i need a day of rest or I get out whack. I think Jesus freed us from the religious constraints on the Sabbath but we were still designed to have a day of rest. You had a day of rest in creating the world and we are your kids. It would make sense that we need to rest too.


I wonder what other things in the Bible that I have discounted as old fashioned and ignored. I better start looking at that a bit closer. You don't waste a single word in that Bible do you Lord.


I love you God. What's on your mind tonight?


What God Said Tonight:
Every word in my Bible is truth and has a purpose, a plan, and a destiny. When I say my word is living, I truly mean it is living. It  moves through time and achieves things faster and better than they could at any other time. 


I have blessed this time and this place knowing that we would be here. We are definitely going to relax tomorrow. You will enjoy it!

Best man for the job...

My prayer:
Awesome God. I kind of feel like I was just spinning my wheels today. I don't feel like I made much of a difference for eternity today. However, I was super busy all day and now I am just drained. 


I don't know what to talk about. I can't even actually keep my eyes open. But, my hunger for you and what you have to say brings me back night after night. The opportunity to serve you  brings me back every night. It is you God. I come back because I have to be with you. I have to have quiet intimate time with you or I will crumble. Life is way too hard without you in it making a way for me. This life is way to rough to try to handle it without you. I wouldn't even want to try. 


So God, lead me, guide me, talk to me, and love me. I love you more than I can ever say God. I am ALL YOURS!


What God Said Tonight:
Don't sleep just yet, there is more to hear. Don't quit just yet, there is more to do. 


I have this path that was specially made for you to take your journey on. Stay in the middle of the path. Your contribution is important because you are the best man for the job. In a perfect world, you would fulfill every purpose. In this world, you will fulfill every purpose that you want to fulfill. You get to choose. 


Choose wisely. Make smart decisions about where and how you spend your time. Never forget that people come before things. A simple order. Your accomplishments today were in the form of giving for no reason and loving people. You did more than you realize. Heaven is cheering for new people being reached in part because of what you are doing. We are very proud of you and want you to stay strong and diligent.

God's promises...

My prayer:
Amazing God. I know I say this a lot, but I am in awe of you. I am in awe of how you put everything together. I am in awe of how you defy "nature" or "reality" and supernaturally heal people. I am in awe of how you bring people together who are perfectly suited to do more together than they can do alone. I am in awe of the opportunities you open up to me when I am willing to step out and do what ever you ask. 


For so many years, I felt like life was passing me by and that I was not living out my purpose. I thought I was in the wrong job, with the wrong people, and doing the wrong things. Now, when I look back, I see how EVERYTHING worked together to give me the experience and put me in the position that you have me today. You used it all! YOU ARE AWESOME and I love you SO MUCH!!!


What God Said Tonight:
I told you I would work all things to your good...I meant it. My promises, the promises I have in my word and the ones that I show you personally are yea and amen. They are a guarantee  They are not a possibility but they are a reality.


I have made promises to you. Who would I be if I did not follow through on my promises to you? When you do not believe the promises I have for you, it insults me. It makes me think that you see me as some inconstant and evil god who is more interested in himself than in you. That is not who I am. 


What is even worse is when my children don't take time to get to know my promises for them. That is like spending all of your money on Christmas presents for someone and they decide they don't want to open them, or don't have the time to open them. 


Know my promises for your life. Believe my promises for you life. I will never promise you something that I don't fully intend to see come to complete fruition. I love you sweet daughter. Trust in my promises over your life. There is so much more to see and to do.We have just begun.

True love...

My prayer:
Awesome and all powerful God. I am too tired to think tonight but I can't go to bed before I hear your voice. I love you God. What is on your mind tonight?


What God Said Tonight:
I could talk to you tonight about attitude and perspective. But you already know that your attitude made today harder than it needed to be. 


I would rather just tell you how much I love you. I would rather tell you how beautiful you are to me. Whether you on top of the mountain or in the depth of the pit, you are beautiful to me. I chose you from before you were born. I planned this day, this time, and this purpose for your life. 


I want to share it all with you. I want to show you how every struggle and every decision that seems trivial today is actually part of the magnificent plan. The thing is, if I showed you everything, it would make it harder on you, not easier. So, I will just love you instead. can you receive that love and trust in me tonight?  Can you rest in my arms knowing that I have it all worked out. That I have a plan for it all? 


I love you. I created the sun so it could shine on your face. I created the wind so it could cool you in the heat of the day. I created the rain to nourish you. I created the world to be your home. I created it all for you, my children. Everything I do is for you. I am working in and for you every minute of every day. Sometimes you don't see it but that doesn't mean that I am not working. I love you so  much. Rest with me tonight and be cradled in my love for you.

I love watching you just knit everything together to work out so perfectly. There is no way I could have ever designed a day this perfect.

God, it is happening. A group of people coming together just because they love you and want to live for you. No hidden agendas, no religion, no extra trappings, just your will, your love for us and our love for you. This beautiful vision you put in my heart that everyone said was impossible, is happening. WOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!!!!!


What God Said Tonight:
Your joy is contagious tonight my daughter! Joy is like that. It is contagious and the more you talk about it, the more it grows. 


Joy is the root of your strength. Joy is what makes it possible to get through the tough times. Joy, the true joy that comes from a life with me, will give you strength to run any race and battle any enemy. Whatever is attacking you, fight back with joy and you will always win. Nothing can stand in the face of true joy.

In need...

My prayer:
All powerful God and Father. Thank you for taking such good care of me. Thank you for always making sure I have what I need. God I am so grateful for the way you provide for me. 


It is a frigid blizzard outside. I pray God for all of the wonderful people we have met on outreaches lately that may not have a roof over their heads tonight. God, I pray that you lead them to safety and to warmth. I pray God that the coats, the blankets, the gloves, the scarves, and the clothes help. I pray God that you take care of all of the people that we didn't meet yet. I pray God that as you lead them to safety, that they experience your love, the love of a Father and that love warms them from the inside out. 


God, the need is too much and too big for me to make much of a dent but nothing is too big for you. I leave them lovingly in your hands tonight. I love you God and I am grateful that I can bring you every burden on my heart. I am grateful that you love them even more than I do and you will not leave them. Thank you Jesus.


What God Said Tonight:
I am building a shelter for all of my people. There will come a day when no one is in want or in need. Until then, I don't need you to take care of everyone but I need you to take care of everyone I bring to you. I need you to take responsibility for your brothers and sisters who are around you. I don't need you to give to everyone but I need you to give to the person in front of you who has a need. 


Your generosity will make a way for you when you need it. You all will come to a point in your lives when you don't have enough of what you need to get what you need to get. Sometimes that is money, sometimes it is love, sometimes it is wisdom. But there comes a time in every  person's life when they are in need. Be generous with what you have so there will be someone there to help you when you are in need. 


Family helping family. It doesn't take much to change someones life. 


I love you daughter. I will do my part if you do yours. Go rest now. Tomorrow is a big day.
