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 good day...

My prayer:

What a great day God! This was one of those days that could have been really tough, but you just made everything work! Love the new tablet you got me (for free)! Love that you showed me how to fix my phone (for free)! Love the new furniture you found me (Not free but pretty close to free!)

There is nothing like living in your blessing God! Thank you for a wonderful day with you and a wonderful friend. LIfe is good when you are in charge!

What God Said Tonight:

I am glad that you enjoyed today. It is fun for me to bless you. However, you will live a better life when you are able to be content no matter the circumstances. It is possible. Paul did it. 

When you can honestly say, today was a good day, not because of what happened but because I was with you, that will be the day when you find that EVERY day is a good day. When you stop worrying about what is happening and start focusing more on me and our relationship, you will find that every day is a good day. 

I love you dearest daughter and I will continue to bless you; but think about changing your definition of a "good day" and see if life in genral isn't better.

Something I don't know about God...

My prayer:

Mighty God. My thoughts are all over the place tonight. Some times, I am just in awe of all of the aspects of you...at least the ones I know. There is God the healer that consistently heals like you did today for the chronic hand pain that we prayed over. There is God all mighty, ruler and maker of everything that ever was or ever will be. There is God, Jesus the Christ who died and was resurrected so I could be forgiven of my sin. And then, there is the loving sweet God that willingly meets with me every night, just to talk. 

There is just so much to you God and so much more for me to know. Tell me something I don't know about you tonight God. Tell me something new. I love you so much and want to know you more.

What God Said Tonight:

That is a great question. Let's see, something you don't know about me...Well, let's talk about me being omnipresent. 


I am everywhere at all times. It doesn't mean that I am running around so fast that I can be at all of the important events in each person's life. It literally means that I am in all places at all times. I don't ever have to hurry because I am always already where I need to be. I don't ever have to schedule time to meet with you or anyone because I am already there, all the time, waiting for the opportunity to talk to you.


You talk about me meeting you each might, that isn't something that I have to show up for. I am already with you everywhere all the time. When you ask for me to come into a sitaution, I am already there. When you ask me to be present in a service or a worship time, I am already there. When you send my word of healing to someone, I am already with them.


I don't move in space or time like you do. I am not limited in my ability to experience and interact as you are. I am able to reach and touch everyone all of the time. You don't ever have to worry about being alone because I am always with you...and everyone else.


Take off the box of "natural thinking" for a minute and imagine the possibilities of being completely unlimited by time and space. Get a glimpse of me.

Stretch yourself...

My prayer:

Today was super full God and neither my mind nor my body are fully awake. But, I can't go to bed without hearing your voice. It is what makes any day worthwhile. What is on your mind mighty and wonderful God?

What God Said Tonight:

You are capable of more than you think you are. All of my children are capable of more than they think they are. 

I want you to push yourself now and then and see if I won't give you everything you need for everything you try. 

So many people don't do the things that they know they want to do, the things that will make a Kingdom difference because they are afraid they won't be able to do it. Sometimes they worry that they won't have time. Other times they worry they don't have the talent, and always they worry that they don't have the wisdom. 

But, the thing is, I have all of those things in abundance and if you will take a risk and try, I will give you what you need. Stretch yourself and do that thing that you convinced yourself you couldn't do. Just try and see if I don't show up and take care of you and it. 

I love you daughter go rest...for now.

Answered prayer...

My prayer:

YOU BROUGHT RAIN!!! You are so amazing God! Thank you for hearing the prayers God and providing the rain. It helped a lot. The fires are still burning but much more under control and I believe today was just step one in your rescue mission. 

I am so grateful for you God. I am so grateful that I have a God I can go to, no matter how hopeless the situation. I am grateful that I am never helpless because you are my help. I am grateful that you never let me down God. All glory and honor is yours mighty God!!!

What God Said Tonight:

You are welcome. It is my pleasure and my purpose to take care of you. A parent doesn't need to be thanked for being a good parent, but it doesn't hurt. 

I love you daughter. rest easy tonight. I have everything under control. Keep your trust in me.

In the fire...

My prayer:

Incredible God, we need your help tonight. Fires are raging throughout the state. People are losing their homes. People and animals are in danger. Little to no rain with 100+ temperatures forcasted. It does not look good. But I have you. I have a God that is bigger than the circumstances. I have a God who can bring rain. I have a God who can protect. I have you. 

So I ask for your help tonight God. You know the best way to handle it. I don't care if it is rain, or you blow them out, or you do something I haven't even thought of. But please God, intervene and help us.

You are incredible God and I love you so much. Thank you for being in my life.

What God Said Tonight:

I am yours and you are mine. I will always take care of you. In the midst of the storm or the fire. 

Remember Shaddrach, Mishach, and Abendego? I did not put them in the fire. I did not keep them from being put in the fire. But I did keep them safe in the fire. 

I will keep you safe no matter what. I love my children too much to leave them to consequence of sin. I love you too much to see you suffer. I died so you won't have to. 

I am around you now daughter. I have dispatched my angel army. You will see the Glory of the Lord in this.

Master Gardner...

My prayer:

Amazing God, thank you. Thank you for what you do and who you are. Thank you for choosing me and loving me before I even knew how to love. Thank you for your guidance and your teaching. Thank you for your patience and you relentless endurance. Thank you for your sacrifice and your power. Thank you God.

What God Said Tonight:

I am building garden and you are my flowers. I am gathering each of you, different colors, different shapes and perfecting you. Once ready, I will place you in the perfect spot. When we are done, we will have a new Eden. We will have a place more beautiful than has ever been imagined. When each child of mine is perfected and in place, it will blow your mind. 

When I trim you, don't worry, it is for a reason. When I dig you up and move you, don't be afraid, I am getting you closer to that final place of purpose. When I remove people from around you, I am getting them into position. Sometimes, I have to move you closer to people for awhile so you will cross pollinate each other. Sometimes I need to move you away from each other to stop the cross pollination. 

I am the Master Gardner. Wait until you see what we create.

Clarity...

My prayer:

Thank you God for a day of clarity after a week of confusion. When I let you steer, everything is SO MUCH EASIER AND BETTER. 

I am hear to listen.

What God Said Tonight:

I am breaking down the walls that remain in your life. I know you thought they were all down, but there have been some left. They have been made out glass bricks, so you could see through them and you didn't really realize they were there. However, they are and they are the walls that are keeping you from the next season. 

I am busting up those walls in your life. I am removing the hindrance for you moving forward. Watch out. the shards are going to fly as I bust up the walls but when I am done, things that seemed out of focus will be sharp. Things that you couldn't quite clearly hear, will be loud and clear. You will be amazed. 

You have been missing so much from behind the wall. When it is down, you will love the new freedom. I got you covered.

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Been there done that...

My prayer:

Today was pretty great God. No pressure, no worries, no fear, just hanging out with you and enjoying life. Especially after this week, I really needed that. I needed that time with you and without all of the yuck! Thanks for spending the day with me. 

I love you so much God. You are my rock and the place I go to when I need peace. You are the one I lean on and you are always beg enough and tough enough to handle it. I am very grateful that you are not a wimpy God. I need a tough God to handle the stuff I get into! Thank you for being more than tough enough! :)

What God Said Tonight:

There is nothing that you will encounter that I have not already encountered and defeated. There is no pain, no attack, no worry, no challenge, that I have not already been victorious over. That is why you can always know that I will take care of things. 

I am not surprised. When you run into trouble, I am not surprised by it. I know the trouble and I am ready for it. I will not let you be defeated. I will always win for you. I already have. 

There is something that I am  not sure that you fully understand. When I died on the cross, I did it all, right then. I defeated every enemy, I restored our relationship, I healed, I saved, I took on ALL sin and left a sacrifice to cover it. Over the years, people remember that I took on their sin but many have forgotten the full story. I did all then. I faced enemies that are attacking you today, way back on the cross...and I defeated them. 

That is why you can never lose. That is why you will always win. I am on your side and I have already won every battle that is to be fought. 

 I love you daughter. Trust that you have already won.

Joy...

My prayer:

This week has been SO crazy and SO serious God. I am so glad that we made it through! I plan to spend tomorrow hanging out with you and just enjoying you and life. Thank you for sticking with me all week, reminding me to love my way through, and never giving up on me. 

What God Said Tonight:

I am going to flood you with my joy my sweet child. I am going to pour it out over you and let it bubble up around you. My joy will surround and heal you. My love will sustain you but my joy will restore you. 

I am grateful for you. I am grateful for your faithfulness even in the hard times. Anyone can be faithful when things are going their way. I need people who will be faithful when everything seems to be gong against them. I need people who will hang on to me with their fingernails if they have to. 

I love you sweet daughter. Rest in my love, celebrate in my joy, and be restored.

Kill it with love...

My Prayer:

Mighty God. I spent a lot of today irritated. But, thanks to you, wisdom, and a nice long run tonight, I didn't act out on it. 

This has been such a WEIRD week! My emotions have been all over and I am frankly sick of being around me this week. I can't imagine how annoying I am to the people around me this week. 

That is one of the really great things about a relationship with you God. You are always patient, always kind, and you never get sick of me, even when you probably should. Thank you for being my Father, my teacher, my God and my love.

What God Said Tonight:

you know, beating up on yourself will not make it better Think on good things. Every time you start feeling the grey cloud tomorrow, I want you to do one conscious, unwarranted kind thing for someone. Kill this thing with kindness. Kill it with love.

I will tell you again, love is the key to everything in this world and beyond.

When you don't feel the love, use mine. When you don't have the patience, use mine. When you don't have the strength, lean on me. I will be there for you every time. Stick in there and love you way through.

Things of this world...

My prayer:

My God. I was just reading about David when he was praising you for being his rock and his fortress and that rings so true for me right now. I am hanging onto you, my rock, the God who does not change, the great I AM, and I will NOT LET GO! 

I love you God so very much. You are everything to me and nothing else is worth anything if I don't have you.

What God Said Tonight:

So much of this recent battle is a result of wanting things that are not of me. You have to let go of the desires for things of this world. There are so many things in this world that look good but will destroy you. 

You really have to say once and for all, if it is not of me, you don't want it. Then, you have to mean it. 

I know it is not easy. I never said life would be easy. I will help you if you let me. Turn your back on the sins that present themselves to you and I will lead you down a better path. I promise.

God is waiting...

My prayer:

I am not sure what to talk about tonight God. There have been so many really wonderful things and so many horrible things all happening at the same time over the last week. I am left feeling kind of ambivalent tonight. 

Funny, I just heard my old Pastor's voice in my head saying "You can't live by our feelings!" And, as usual, he is right. 

Thank you God for being my rock, the solid place I can turn to when the world and my emotions are all over the place. You are amazing and I am crazy about you. What is on your mind?

What God Said Tonight:

I am at the door waiting for you. I am waiting for you to be ready to come out and follow me. We have places to go and things to do but not until you are ready to come  out. 

I understand why you have been hiding. This next phase is no joke. You should not come out before you are ready but when you are, when you are truly ready, come on out and I will be here to take you to the next phase. 

I am waiting but you know that I am patient. I would rather wait longer and know you are ready than for you to rush this thing. 

My sweet child. I look at your face and I see an innocence that does not reflect all that you have seen. I see an innocence that can only be gained through my blood. You are so beautiful and precious to me. I will wait for you.

Things are NOT OK...

My prayer:

My God the Rock. People are eating each others' faces. Mothers are eating their children's brains. Young girls carving horrible messages into their skin and others are making fun of it. Things are not okay. 

You warned us God that things would get bad in the last days. I did not realize you meant it would get this bad. And, apparently, it will get worse. It is overwhelming sometimes God. 

I was yelling that song about "When I get afraid I go to the Rock" all the way home, hoping I would believe it and find comfort in you. I don't know why it is all hitting me all of a sudden but it is. I don't know how to handle a world getting worse than this. 

I think most of the time I just get through the day, trying not to think about the suffering. I do my little piece here and there but I know it is not enough. I know that there are people starving all over the world. I know that there are people being beaten to death. I know that there are crazy things like people eating off other peoples' faces. And, I know there is nothing I can do about any of it. So, I try to forget. That only works for awhile though. 

God, I really need your help tonight. I really need to hear you. I need you to make some sense out of a senseless world. I need to understand how to love in the midst of this insanity.

What God Said Tonight:

Not everything that starts ugly, stays ugly. The caterpillar turns into a butterfly but in the process it is covered in mucus and an ugly pod. Sometimes the greatest beauty comes out of ugliness. 

Remember when I said that I did not come for the healthy but I came for the sick? I came to the world because it was sick, not because things were all going great. I came because of the pain, the suffering, the craziness. I am here today because of the need. 

Some of my most beautiful children, with the sweetest hearts and the most generosity of spirit ahve come out of the darkest and ugliest places. Look beyond the fear. Look beyond the ugliness and see what they can be in me. Love and see what they turn out to be. 

Love, my love can change even the ugliest situation into something beautiful. Don't look at the situation or the people for what they are right now. Expand your vision and love them into what they can be. 

I will always protect you, no matter how crazy it gets. Do not be afraid. The craziness will not harm you. Keep loving your way through, even when it is hard.

Daddy love...

My prayer:

Amazing Father. It was so good to just be back in your presence today. Not doing anything special, just hanging out together. Going for a run together. Listening and singing worship together. 

I hope it was a good Father's Day for you God. I hope you know that when I mess up, when I get off track, it is not because I don't love you. It is only my lack. My love for you will never end. forgive me for any moment when I forget to show you. 

What God Said Tonight:

I know your heart my sweet daughter. I know your love. I know your struggles and I know your pain. I knew you before you were born. I know every cell of your body and have counted the hairs on your head. 

I know your love and I cherish it. Your love is so beautiful and is coveted by many, including me. Your love is a reflection of me in you. That is why people are so drawn to you. They are drawn to the reflection of me in you, the love in you. 

Don't ever hide the love. Don 't ever let circumstances and struggles mask the love. If you do nothing else for the rest of your life, love. Let your love show, it is the most beautiful part of you.

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Seek God...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I don't know how I let it happen again but I got so caught up in achieving, growing, doing things for you that I forgot the most and only really important thing. I forgot that the point is love. I forgot that you don't care what I accomplish if I don't first love. Love you and love people. It is such a simple command, such a simple instruction, and somehow so easy to forget. God forgive me for getting off track again. Thank you for giving me another chance. I will really try to do better.

What God Said Tonight:

Sweet daughter, I will always lead you and guide you. I can get you back on track. But, you have to be seeking me to find me. You have to look for my path. You have to look to me so I can show you the way. 

That was why tonight was important. When you stopped looking to the world and to your own emotions for answers and just started seeking me, when you started seeking to learn more about me, the answer became clear. 

That is what I need from you. Seek me. When things get off track, when you know that things aren't quite right, seek me and I promise I will be right there to lead you out. 

You learned or were reminded of an important thing tonight. Keep that knowledge as precious. Cherish it. Rehearse it. Remember it as you go to sleep tonight, as you go out tomorrow. Don't lose hold of it. I love you now and forever.

Friday, June 15, 2012

Get out of God's way...

My prayer:

God you are sovereign. You are in charge. Thank you for reminding me of that tonight. 

I had my agenda but I didn't check it out with you. When I stopped trying to figure it out and just started loving, that is when you stepped in and started changing peoples lives. God, I just get carried away sometimes. I get so driven to see you move in people's lives that I try to force it and that NEVER works. I am sorry for trying to push my agenda tonight God.

What God Said Tonight:

Your goals, your dreams are my dreams. How we get there, now that is where we need to talk it out sometimes. I have a way to get us there that will be a blessing to you and the people around you. Your way may sometimes seem like the most efficient or best way, but there are things and aspects of it that you don't see. 

Just like I was telling you last night, I get the bigger picture. That is why you have to trust and listen to me to lead you through. I will always guide you. 

Don't push but always move forward. Don't force it but always be making progress. I love you daughter and I love to see you minister in my name. 

Relax and do what comes natural. That is going to be the right thing to do. I have put in you the desire and ability to follow me without much effort. It will be the thing that feels right. You knew early on tonight something was off. That is the cue to stop and let me take the reins again. 

And, at the end of the night, people were blessed and people were changed in my name...that was our goal. Goal achieved. Now go rest.

When things don't work out...

My prayer:

Kind of sick of hearing my own voice God. What is on your mind? I am hear to listen to anything you want to say. Love you like crazy.

What God Said Tonight:

I have so much that I could tell you. As long as you are willing to listen, I will talk. 

There is a lot I could teach you but not all of it is things that you want to hear. Sometimes, the things I have to tell you are hard to hear. Sometimes what I need to teach you is that things don't always go the way you think they should. 

Think of Noah. Do you think he wanted me to wipe out all of humanity? No, there were people and things that he cared about. Do you think he wanted to build a boat when no one had ever had need of a boat before? No, he did not. It was not how he thought things should go. 

But sometimes, the plan and the purpose is greater than what you can see. Sometimes I have to do what needs to be done even though you won't understand. I do it all for your good. Please believe me that I always do everything for the good for you. I don't do things to harm you. 

I will always bring you through each and every struggle. I will always protect you. But, please trust me Trust me during the times when things don''t seem to be working out how you expected. Know that there is something that you may not see that I had to take care of.  I promise, it will all turn out ok. Actually, it will turn out perfectly. I promise.

Not good enough...

My prayer:

Hi God! I have been putting this off tonight because I am not sure what to talk about. I have been on a bit of a roller coaster today. 

There were great new opportunities, like partnering with the Mission, which was awesome. When I stay focused on that, I am excited and grateful. Then, all of a sudden, I start doubting myself. I start thinking, who am I to think I can do any of this. I start thinking, I am not talented enough or good enough to do the things that you are putting in front of me. Then, I start telling myself to shut up, because it isn't me doing it anyway, it is you God. Then I feel bad because I yelled at myself which is a pretty stupid thing to do. So, I make myself think about all the amazing opportunities again and I get excited...and the cycle begins again. 

It is times like this that I feel like a bit of a basket case God. Do other people do this to themselves. Can you teach me how to stop it?

What God Said Tonight:

You ask if other people do this to themselves. Check out my written Word and you will see many examples of people doing exactly that. It isn't fun but there is purpose in it. 

Each time you go through this cycle, you learn how to lean on me more. The fact is you are completely right, you do not have what it takes to do what I have called you to do. If you did, you would not need me and would do it on your own. That would mean that you would get the glory and not me. That would mean that people would want to follow you and not me. That would put you in a very dangerous position filled with pride and ego and would result in your destruction. 

I will not let you be destroyed. that is why I will always call you to do more than you are capable of on your own. I will always call you to do things that you need me in order to complete them. That way, you get to be a part of amazing things but I get the glory. That way, you get to have great purpose and achievement in your life but it won't destroy you. That way, you get to help A LOT of people but you get to be you. 

When you begin to realize that I have called you to do more than you are capable of, celebrate and know that you have truly found my purpose and plan for you. Get excited to know that I will show up and I won't let you fall. Get excited and know that this is my perfect plan. I love you daughter. Trust me.

Under the surface...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I was bored today God. Maybe just because everyday for a while now has been so exciting, normal felt boring? I am not sure, but it felt like the whole day just dragged on. I don't feel like I helped anyone today. There wasn't anything bad that happened...just...blah. 

A very smart woman who happens to be my mom told me that I should be grateful for quiet days like this to recover from the excitement that you usually fill my life with. She is right I am sure; however, you know me. I am easily bored and there are few things that I dislike more than being bored.

Ok, I am done whining. Thanks for listening and putting up with me God. 

What God Said Tonight:

There was plenty happening today my daughter, it was just a little less obvious than usual. 

You know how when you are on the shore looking out at a quiet bay, the ocean looks so quiet and like nothing is happening in it? But, when you jump in and put your head under water you realize it is teaming with life. You realize there is a whole world of life that is happening that you didn't even know about when you looked at it from the shore. That is how today was. There was plenty happening, it was just under the surface. 

Keep doing what I have told you to do. Be faithful and you will see the great things and the things that are under the surface. Love you my daughter.

You are worthy...

My prayer:

You are too good to me God and I love it!! I am in awe of how you turned things around today at work. When I started that call, all they could was talk about how it was impossible for them to contract with us based on their policies and then, one hour later, they were so excited to work with us that they wanted to start sending all of their work through us. Only you God. 

People around me don't understand and I can see why. I am living it and I have a hard time believing it sometimes. You are so very good to me!!! Sure, we have our tough times too; but you always bring me back here where I have favor that I don't deserve. 

How do I let people around me understand and believe that this blessed life is not just for me? I don't think I am very good at that part yet. How do I get them to understand that you really want to bless all of your children this way? 

LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

What God Said Tonight:

My daughter, if I could I would tell you. I have been shouting my desire to bless my children from the dawn of time. And, since that time, they have had trouble hearing and believing it. Even back in the garden of Eden. All I wanted to do is bless them. I wanted them to have every good thing and yet, they couldn't believe that and had to take the thing, the one thing, that would hurt them.

It is hard to bless someone who doesn't believe they are worth being blessed. If I could tell you anything, it would be that. Help people feel worth being blessed and then help them to receive the blessing. Don't get me wrong. No one can earn my blessing. However, when they feel completely unworthy of being blessed, it blocks them from being able to receive what I want to give them. 

Help them to see their worth in me. Help them to see how beautiful they are. Help them to see how smart they are. Help them to see that they are worth more than gold and precious gems. They are the apple of my eye and I love them so much. Help them to see that and then they can receive the blessings.

I love you for trying.

Coincidence...

My prayer:

Today was really wonderful God. I think the theme had to be coincidences...that weren't really  coincidences. The way you work things together is fascinating!!! I loved the treasure hunt outreach and how it led us to so many people that needed a touch from you. I loved the new people I got to meet. I am still smiling over the unusual connection to my past with the one introduction...can't wait to see what you do with that one! Whoever decided you do not have a sense of humor was WRONG!!! 

I love you like crazy God and if today was any indication, I really am going to LOVE this season!! 

What God Said Tonight:

Your future is so bright. I have so many wonderful points of light throughout the rest of your life and beyond. Look before you and see a landscape of lights. 

The thing is, in order to experience them, you have to move. You have to move forward and through them. Otherwise, they are just pretty lights in the distance. When you start to move into them you begin to experience them. You feel their heat. You see their source and you get to have the full experience. 

Move into the lights, the blessings I have for you. Take courage and walk into the future I have for you. Don't stay on the ledge looking over the wonders and wishing you could experience them. Jump in and see, feel, hear, everything I have for you. I will not let you fall. I will bless you. 

I really do have it all worked out. Your coincidence was in my plan. Jump in.

Spring and miracles...

My prayer:

Awesome and powerful God. My thoughts are really on tomorrow. Thank you for the amazing opportunity to pray for people tomorrow. Thank you for the opportunity to see you do amazing things in people's lives. God I pray that you cover us so thick in your anointing that every where we go, there is an open heaven, miracles from you and hope. God, make us a blessing to everyone we touch. Prepare their hearts God to receive what you have for them. I am EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Spring is here. You can see evidence of it everywhere you go. There are beautiful flowers and that special spring green that is unlike any other green in the world. You know it is Spring because all of the evidence, the things you see, the things you smell, the things you hear, and the things you feel all tell you it is Spring. 

This is also the season for miracles. My seasons are no different. You will know they are here by the evidence. You will see, you will hear, you will smell, you feel the evidence of this season of miracles. 

I have often told you that you are going to see things you could not have imagined. Get ready. That season is here. Have the courage to walk through this season with your eyes, ears and everything else open. Experience every minute of it. Don't try to find explanations. Just experience and receive what I have prepared for you. It is going to be truly awesome and I am excited too!

Hiding from God...

My prayer:

Wow God, what can I say. I am just reveling in your presence and your complete wonderfulness tonight. Nights like tonight when your presence is so heavy and thick, when the world disappears and it is just you and me...WOW! I love these times. What is on your mind? What do you want to talk about?

What God Said Tonight:

Seek and you will find me. I do not hide from you. You hide from me sometimes, just like Adam and Eve did, but I don't hide from you. 

It is possible for us to live in constant connection. It is possible for this presence that you are aware of tonight can be with you always. Or, let me clarify, it is with you always but there is a way for you to be aware of it. I am with you always. My presence doesn't change. My anointing doesn't change. I am not powerful one day and not powerful the next. 

I AM. That does not change. What changes is your attention to me. What changes is what you are paying attention to. Take time for me. Take time to recognize and experience my presence in your life. Take time to see the beauty I have surrounded you with. Turn off your phone, your computer, your TV, and just be with me more. It will bless me and it will bless you. 

You often ask what you can give me. All I really want is your time and your heart. All I really want is to spend time with you where you are fully aware of me. I want to be important in your life like you are important to me. I love you my sweet daughter. Feel that, know that, and experience that more. It will give you the confidence for the nest seaso\n.

The power of decisions and choices...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I was having a conversation with someone today and it got me thinking. I think, if we are paying attention to the people we are hanging out with, working with, surrounded with, we can see either the kind of person that we are or the kind of person we are going to turn into. If that is true, we can choose the type of person we are going to be by choosing the people we surround ourselves with. 

In the specific case today, we were talking about a particular job that requires the person to be constantly suspicious of the people they are talking to. We were talking about someone who was successful in that job and she assumes everyone is lying to her unless they can prove differently. It is one of the things that make her so good at her job. But, I thought and told my friend, "Do you really want to be that person? Do you want to assume that everyone is lying?" 

It kind of hit me then, I think we, I, have a lot more control or ability to decide who I am and who I am going to be than I may have ever realized. "I am who I am, get used to it." is not really a true statement. I think the thing is, we get to choose who we are, either consciously or subconsciously. The good part of that is if we don't like who we are, we can choose to be different. 

Sorry to yammer on. Just something I was thinking about. The most obvious application of this is when we choose to live our lives for you. That one choice alone changes us and we become a "new man." 

Thank you for giving us the gift of choice and free will God. 

What God Said Tonight:

You are making choices every moment of every day, whether you realize it or not. Your life is a constant stream of choices. Even when you choose not to choose, you are making a choice. Learning how to make good choices, choices that help you to prosper and get closer to me, that is the goal. That is one of the main reasons for life. Learning to make good choices. 

Choose life. That sounds so easy and in some ways it is. When you are faced with a choice, choose the way that brings life to the situation. The choice that will result in the growth and prospering of everyone involved. Pick the thing that is in agreement with my Word and you will see it prosper. Everything I have told you, every edict I have given, was given because it is the way to life. I don't set rules just to be a taskmaster and punish you when you miss the boat. I give you rules because they can help you to make good decisions. Decisions for life. Decisions that will leave you in a better place than you were before the decision.

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

The danger of being blessed...

My prayer:

Life is so very good right now God. Thank you!!! You are blessing me like crazy. You have filled my life with amazing people that I get to help and be helped by. Work is great. Ministry opportunities are awesome. I am loving it all God.

And, I hate this, but the truth is, I find myself worrying about when the other shoe is going to drop. I worry that things are so good that I am going to do something wrong or someone is going to figure out that I am nothing special and it is all going to go bad. 

I am sorry to have to admit that God. I am not proud of it. I actually hate feeling like this. It keeps me from enjoying all the wonderful things you are doing to their fullest. I don't like it, but I don't know how to stop it. Awesome God, will you help me? Help me to enjoy life and trust you. thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

The great danger of being blessed is misunderstanding where the blessing comes from. You are not the cause of your blessing. I am the cause of your blessing. You cannot and have not earned it. 

You are blessed because you my child. You are protected because you are my child. You are in the position you are today because I chose you. To think that you could do something to turn my blessing away from you is great arrogance. 

I will bless you all of the days of your life. Didn't I promise you that? I will open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing on you that you cannot contain. Didn't I promise you that? My promises are true. 

You may not always be struggle free but you will always be blessed. You may not always be able to see the blessing but you will always be blessed. I will bless you all the days of your life. Hear that. Repeat that. Remember that. I will bless you all the days of your life. 

You are my blessed child and I love you. Enjoy the blessing and know that they are not going away as long as you and I are together. My sweet child. How can I help but bless you?

Living life with God...

My prayer:

Today was pretty great God! You kept surprising me with blessings that I did not ask for or expect. Your surprises are the BEST! 

I love you God. I love getting to live this life with you. I love that after all the struggle and work, you are always there waiting with a smile and favor a reminder that I am not in this life alone. Thank you for not making me live this life without you. 

You know that sometimes I get lost in all of the things/experiences that I want that I don't have yet, I am sorry for those times. Because, in times like this where I can so clearly see how blessed I am, just because I get to live with you in my life, I realize that those other things don't really matter that much. If they happen, awesome, if they don't, I still have you which is more than I could have ever imagined and more than enough for me. LOVE YOU DADDY!

What God Said Tonight:

Life is meant to be a celebration. It is meant to be filled with joy and color and joy. It is meant to be enjoyed. I know that is sometimes hard to remember with sin getting in the way, but that was my intention. For you to enjoy life was my first intention. 

Find the joy in this life and hang onto it. Find the joy in me and hang on to it. Don't ever let go of your joy. Don't ever forget to celebrate and enjoy the wonders of your life. It is so easy to get lost inn the things that didn't go like you wanted or mired in the pain of life. Strive to pull yourself out of that muck and remember the joy that you have in me. 

Live in that joy. Celebrate with me. Smile with me, dance with me, love with me. You can enjoy life again if you keep focused on me and the blessings I bring. 

I love you daughter and I love to bless you. I love to hang out with you. I love to live life with you.

Doubt and choices...

My prayer:

How is it possible that you got me through this day? I had less than four hours of sleep, a full day of meetings, running errands after work, and more and somehow, here I am still conscious. That is divine intervention I think. 

You always give me just what I need God. I can't imagine trying to live this life without you. I tell you, I am not just saying that. I know that I would have crumbled under the pressure a long time ago if I did not have you. I don't know how anybody makes it through 24 hours without you. I am all yours.

What God Said Tonight:

A day will come when you will question this life you have chosen. A day will come when you will wonder if it is worth it. You will question whether you made the right choices. Don't let those days scare you. The days of doubt are nothing more than an opportunity to grow your faith greater than it has ever been before. Doubt is not the enemy. Doubt is the vehicle to go to the next level. Doubt makes you question and challenge what you think you know and that is a very good thing. 

I don't ever want my kids to follow me because they think they should. I want you to follow me out of your free will choice. I want you to choose me every day. I want you to make a conscious decision with your heart mind and spirit to live with me and to do my will. 

That is what I want. I don't need slaves. I am the God of the entire universe and I can have all of the drones I want. I want children. I want friends. I want people who stand with me because they want to stand with me. Not because they feel an obligation to stand with me. 

I love your faithfulness and I love that you stand with me no matter what. That faithfulness means more when you have made a fully conscious choice. I love you. 

I am not afraid of questions. I am not afraid of anything. Stand with me, yes, I want you to stand with me, but make sure you are doing it because you want to do it and you have made a choice, for yourself, not for your mom and not for your kids, but you personally have made the choice. That is the kind of choice, the kind of faith that gets my attention. 

I love you so much. Thank you for standing with me.

Worthwhile life...

My prayer:

What a day, what a weekend God. Thank you for reminding me of the great plans you have. Thank you for reminding me of visions of the great things that you have planned. Thank you God for connections with people that love you more than anything else. Thank you God for this next chapter we are walking into. Thank you for the opportunities to bless you and bless your people. Thank you for healing so many people with back troubles today! I LOVE YOU LIKE CRAZY!

What God Said Tonight:

I do it all for you, my children. You are more precious than gold to me. You are more brilliant that fine gems. You are everything I ever hoped from the time of my first creation. 

I know we have been through a lot to get to this point. But, I promise, it will be worth it. I promise that when you look back on your life, you will say it was a worthwhile life. You will be glad that you lived and moved in the time that I have given you here on earth. 

We have a lot to do but don't ever get intimidated. I will lead you and guide you. I will help you through this like I have everything else. You never thought you could write or publish a book and  now you are offering to help others while your book continues to sell. 

It will be so easy once we get started. I am going to fling open doors. I am going to create opportunities that have never been open before. I am going to soften men's hearts toward you and they will bless you. You will have more than what you need to do what I have called you to. You will love it, I promise. 

Tonight, celebrate this time in history. This is going to be the small beginning that you talk about nostalgically in your old age as you are helping a new ministry get offf the ground.. I love you so much and I am excited to walk you through this next thing.

Distractions...

My prayer:

Life is confusing God. Sometimes, everything is so clear and I understand you so perfectly. I understand your will for my life. Then, all of a sudden, I feel lost. I am not sure what to do or what to think I am adrift in a sea of confusion. 

You are not the author of confusion so I have to believe that the enemy steps in at that point. God, I am SICK OF HIM!!! I am so ready for a world where satan has no place. I know there is more to do before that can happen, but I hope it is soon. His interference must end. I want us all to live in your diving purpose, plan and blessing. 

I love you Jesus. Help me to see clearly and follow you and only you. 

What God Said Tonight:

That enemy that you so want to get rid of is also working very hard to distract you. And, you are letting him. You are not focused the way you need to be right now. Now, more than ever you need to keep your mind stayed on me. Nowhere else but firmly stayed on me. 

I will continue to guide you but you must keep your focus on me. You cant be distracted. not now. You can't let yourself be taken away from your purpose and plan. Keep me front and center and don't waver. Please. It is really important. 

I love you and you are always first on my mind. Make sure I am first on yours.

Take your position...

My prayer:

What an amazing night God! I can't even put words to it! Your power, mercy, anointing, are so amazing. I am speechless but my ears are open.

What God Said Tonight:

I have given you clarity of purpose. You don't need to doubt. You don't need to wonder what my will is. I have shown you my will and you just need to trust it. 

Just as you prayed for others tonight, take the position that I have prepared you for. Walk in the authority I have given you. Trust that voice you hear is mine and trust that your thoughts are the mind of Christ. I have put everything in you that you need. Use it and do all that I have called you to do. 

You will be stepping out and into arenas that you have never imagined. Trust me to lead you to guide you. Trust that the wisdom you receive is from me. Follow your gut, your instinct right now is coming directly from my heart. You are an extension of me and made for this time and for this purpose. Don't doubt it. Don't get confused. 

Walk in the plan and purpose I have for you and you will see great wonders and miracles. You will see the blind see, the deaf hear, the dead raised again. You will see me to do great and mighty things. You will see creative miracles. You will see all of it and more. 

All of this, all of the struggle, all of the growth, was necessary to bring you to this time and this place. Now that we are here, trust me to guide you in and be prepared to be amazed. I will surprise you daily. I love you daughter and I have waited for this time for a very long time. I will not wait any longer. The time his here and the time is now.
