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.

Peace in every situation...

My prayer:

There was a lot of craziness around me today God but total peace in me. That is a pretty wonderful thing that you do for me. I love your peace. The peace that doesn't really make sense but it so complete. That peace to know that you will work everything out, even the small details. 

If I didn't have you and your peace in my life, I would be a constant worrier. There is plenty to worry about if I want to. But, with you, I don't need to. Thank you God for taking care of me and taking care of all of the details.

What God Said Tonight:

I am peace. I am the source of peace. I have total peace for you because I already know everything. Everything that ever was or ever will be. I am your peace in the midst of any storm. I am your refuge. I will never leave you and I will never walk away from you. 

When fear tries to come in, remember who I am. Remember what I know. Remember what I can do. And then, remember how much I love you. My love for you is beyond words and I will bring every bit of knowledge and every ounce of power that is in me to come to your defense in every situation. 

I am with you. No matter what the circumstances look like, I am right here and I will not let you down. In the end, you will see the glory of my Kingdom, every time.

Win every time...

My prayer: 

You are good, you are GOOD, YOU ARE GOOD GOD!!! I am continually amazed, impressed and in awe of you God and how you work everything out! Thank you is a ridiculously small tribute for all that you do. 

I bet that is why they never stop worshiping you in heaven. Because truth is, if everyone of us worshiped you non stop for eternity, it would still not be enough to repay all that you do. 

Forgive me God for every moment that I have forgotten the immense blessing you are and hear my heart tonight in complete gratitude to you for who you are and all that you do.

What God Said Tonight:

I make you to succeed because I can't help but win. As my kids, you can't help but win either. You are children of the ultimate champion and I have put in you the ability to do even greater things than I did when I was with you. 

If you can someday, allow yourself to receive all that I have for you...watch out world! You will be powerful beyond your imaginings and you will be successful in everything. Sounds great and you are thinking, yeah, I want THAT! But, with that level of blessing and favor, comes a lot of other problems and challenges. 

I need to prepare you for that kind of blessing. I need to heal your heart so you are humble enough to receive and not gloat. I need to soften your soul to know that you will share and give all that you get. I need to know that the blessings will never own you but that you will ALWAYS belong to me. 

Those are the things I am working on with you now. I know that it is not always fun but know that the purpose and the reward of what we are changing in you today will absolutely be worth it. Be encouraged my love.

Getting what you want...

My prayer:

Hi God! I have spent a lot of today thinking about what you said this morning on my way to work. You said, don't ask for something if you don't want it. That seems like such an obvious thing but the more I think about it, how many times have I asked you for something whether it was something tangible or something spiritual or whatever, and then when you bring it to me, I don't really appreciate it? More times than I want to admit, I know that. 

We were talking about it tonight in group, I need to be more mindful of what I ask you for. Thank you for the insight and for continuing to talk with me every day. A day without your voice is pretty unthinkable. I don't ever want to be without you God. Love you SO MUCH!

What God Said Tonight:

I don't know if it is always a mindfulness issue but sometimes it is a gratefulness issue. You long for something for so long thinking if you could only have that one thing, everything would be perfect. But, no one thing, other than me in your  life, has the power to make everything else right. So, when you get the thing you want and your life is not suddenly perfect, you become complacent and unappreciative. 

I am the one thing that truly satisfies. I am the one thing that is greater once I am in your life than I was when you were longing to be close to me. I am the one thing that only gets better and bigger with time. Long for me and be satisfied in all things. I love you my daughter. Rest well.

Pouring out blessings....

My prayer:

Is there anything you won't do for us God? Your blessings are so amazing! I think I am finally starting to truly understand that ALL things are possible through you. There is NO "IMPOSSIBLES" in my life when you are in it. WOW. I am in awe God.

What God Said Tonight:

Every good thing is from me. I will always only give you good things. When there are things that you want that are not good for you, those things I will hold back from you for your good. But every good thing is yours. 

I have waited and eternity to spoil you a little. I have waited an eternity to bless you. I have waited an eternity for this time right now with you. I won't hold back anymore. I will pour out my blessings on you, my children. 

In these last days, there will be many hardships to endure. I will pour out my blessings on you to help you through. I love you and I will bless you all the days of your life.

Right time, right place, right person...

My prayer:

What an amazing blessing you made "C" and his wife "L" to be God! The way they are heading up this ministry banquet is so wonderful. I want to be like them someday. They are very organized but willing to hear everyone's ideas and change things that make sense. They don't get stuck in "their" way of doing it. It is pretty wonderful to be a part of a team like that God. Thank you for this opportunity and thank you for not letting me miss it. I almost said no because there was so much going on and I was so busy but I would have missed out on blessing people and learning from some great leaders. Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

Every person in place doing what they were called to do. That is why you found tonight so beautiful. Each person was using their gifts for me. It really is beautiful when that happens. When people simply trust that I have given them what they need to do what they have been called to do. It is so easy. 

It only gets hard when you start to try to do what I have called your brother or sister to do. When you step outside of your gifts and responsibilities and try to do what they are doing because it seems better in some way. 

There are no small jobs in my Kingdom when you are doing what you are prepared to do. I love you and I love the way I made you. I made you with a purpose in mind and it is a good purpose. 

Go rest now. We have more to do tomorrow.

New love vs. Mature love...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Feeling restless tonight. It seems like there is something I should be doing but I don't know what it is. You are blessing me left and right and I am so very grateful. Some of the blessings are almost unexplainable and people don't really believe me when I tell them. I wish there was a better way to let people see what a blessing it is to have you in our lives. There are struggles and trials, sure. People everywhere have struggles. But with you, we always come out of the struggles on top.

Thank you so much for letting me be a part of praying for the new believer today. It was so phenomenal to see how excited he was and how he was already telling everybody he could about what happened in his life! No fear, no embarrassment, just utter joy at being forgiven and loved by you. That is the REALLY GOOD STUFF God! 

Maybe G had it right when she said that she was going to focus on getting the new believers out on the streets witnessing. That enthusiasm in them is infectious! I wonder if we can recapture that enthusiasm?

What God Said Tonight:

Newlyweds don't stay newlyweds forever but their love does not diminish. It matures and it grows. There is beauty in mature love. There is excitement in new love. There is fire and passion and energy in new love. New love is great but if new love stays new, it never has the chance to become the rooted and strong love of maturity. 

I love you so much my daughter and when our love was new, when you first came to love me, it was exciting and fun and you were energized in a brand new way. Our love has matured and is not so flashy but just as beautiful. As much as I enjoyed our new love, I appreciate the love and the trust that you have for me now even more than that first flush of love. 

This is a love that lasts, a love that grows, a love that strengthens. You don't have to worry about sharing the feeling of new love, they will get that all on their own. Show them the love you have now. Show them what our love can be. You are what I have made you to be right now, for this time and purpose. 

Appreciate the gifts of others and use the gifts I give you. When everyone is doing just what I have called them to, then everything will be covered.

Choose well...

My prayer:

Wow, no idea what to talk about tonight. Maybe I should just listen?

What God Said Tonight:

When you focus on me, there is hope and joy and peace. When you focus on what you don't have, there is angst and pain and torment. Why would you ever to choose to focus on anything but me? 

You have the absolute ability to choose what you will experience in this life. You don't get to choose the circumstances but you entirely get to choose how you respond and what you focus on. 

Make good choices. I hate to see you suffer. I want you to live in the joy I have for you. It is waiting for you.

Friday, August 24, 2012

Good change...

My prayer:

Change is in the wind God and it feels good!  Sometimes change seems a little frightening but this change, there is no fear. I somehow know that you are in complete charge and I am just excited to see what you want to do. I love you and trust you. Whatever you want to do next, let me know. I am here for whatever you want to do.

What God Said Tonight:

I have many changes for you and for your life. Your life will never be static. Your life is meant to be lived, not endured. Your life is meant for a purpose, not just an existence. 

You have been prepared and will do much with it. But in each new thing, you are being prepared for the next thing. Life is a continuous adventure if you will see as such. Start each day with me in your mind and in your heart and I will show you such things that you cannot imagine. 

Good news is, we will have a lot of fun along the way. People get caught up in the battle of following me. They worry too much sometimes about the enemy coming against them. You have to remember that I will always win against the enemy in the end. You don't really have to pay so much attention to him. I have him under control and it is only a matter of time before he is out of the picture. 

So much better to focus on me and what we can do together. I love you daughter and I love living this life with you.

Trails of light...

My prayer:

I am so tired tonight God, I probably won't make a lot of sense, but, you always seem to understand anyway :). Ok, now I know I am too tired...just used a smiley face in a prayer! Anyway, You gave me lots of great opportunities to be a blessing today and to see you bless people and that made it a really good day. You are so good! 

What God Said Tonight:

Everywhere you go you leave a trail of light. My light in a dark world. Your light, or my light in you, effects more than you. It lights up the things around you. As they are lit up, they begin to generate more light. 

If you just continue to shine my light, pretty soon the world will be light instead of dark. That is how we change the world. One light at a time. Shine on my little lighthouse.

Now and forever love...

My Prayer:

You are so awesome God. You are my ever present help. You take care of things before I even know there is a problem. You give me favor in every situation. You are WONDERFUL!!! I simply cannot come up with words to describe how amazing you are. 

I am eternally grateful that you saved me from my sin and provided a way for me to live with you forever in heaven. But, right now, today, I am SO GRATEFUL that I get to live this life with you on my side!!!!!!!! 

With you on my side, who can defeat me? The enemy has not real chance when you are with me. I LOVE YOU!!!! Please don't ever leave me.

What God Said Tonight:

I will never leave you or turn my back on you You are my precious child and I created you. I loved you before you were even conceived. I had a plan for your life before the dawn of time. I hold you precious and dear in my heart and I will never let you go. 

I love you more than you can know. You are beautiful to me, every part of you. I have waited for an eternity to have this time with you. I am serious. I have waited so long to be here with you tonight. 

You don't always feel lovable but I will ALWAYS love you. You don't always feel worthwhile, but you are prince and a priest. You are royalty in the Kingdom of God because you are my anointed child. 

I love all of my children with this same love. But, right now, tonight, I want you to KNOW my love for you. I don't want you to ever doubt again my love. I want you to live every moment in COMPLETE ASSURANCE that I am in love with you and will not let go of you. Now and foever my love.

SIN...

My prayer:

Sooo, sin. Doing stuff that is not in your will. I know we shouldn't and with the actions, it is a little easier to avoid sin. But I was just reading in Matthew tonight how you talk about even thinking sinful thoughts is a sin. 

I can do my best to "take thoughts captive" and "think on good things" but sometimes other thoughts sneak in. Sometimes, like tomorrow, I will be walking into a situation that I know will be ripe with sinful thoughts but it is not something that I can really get out of. The situation itself is not bad but I know that there is potential for my thoughts to go down a wrong path. 

But, I can't not go can I? You say to blind our right eye if it looks lustfully. That would make me think that you expect us to do anything and everything to avoid sin thoughts. God, I want to be in your will. I don't want to be in sin. But, when it comes to some everyday things, I am not sure how to avoid it? I pray for your help God.

What God Said Tonight:

Does the law define sin or does sin define the law? Think on that a minute. Is sin still sin if there is no law? 

Sin is something that will cost you. Sin is something that will take away from your life, your soul and your spirit. Sin will tear down the things that you have built. Avoiding sin is a very smart thing. When you get it wrong, when you sin anyway, you are covered in my blood and you do not have to pay the wages of sin that are death. However, you do have live with the consequences of your thoughts and actions. And, do not doubt it for a minute, there are ALWAYS consequences for sin. Sooner or later, there are always consequences.

I will help you tomorrow but you must follow my lead. You must trust me. You must do everything you know to do to focus on me and not on the situation. I love you daughter and we will walk through this together.

Life balance...

My prayer:

Mighty God. I am riddled with doubt tonight. Not doubt about you. Doubt about me. Doubt about the future. Doubt about am I doing the right things for your kingdom? Am I doing enough? Am I spending enough time with you? Am I loving you and people like I should? Am I getting this life "right" or am I deceiving myself and one day I will wake up and realize that I missed all of these amazing things that I could have been doing for you? 

Is there room for life balance when we are serving you God or are we supposed to be so sold out that there is nothing but you and serving you in our lives? 

Sorry to be such a pest with a million questions tonight God, but you know me. If there is a question to be asked, I will ask it. I love you God and I only want to be in the right place at the right time to be and do all that you have for me, seriously.

What God Said Tonight:

Life balance, that is an interesting concept that has really only come up recently in some ways. There is a part of it that goes back to how I created you. I created you to have a Sabbath. I created you so that you would work six days and on the seventh day you would rest with me. That rest is essential for the rest of what you do. 

Regarding balance in any other sense of the word, the way you get balance is when there is no difference between the you that serves me and the you that lives your everyday life There is a purpose and plan in every moment of your life. Whether you are preaching or whether you are having a sandwich for lunch, there is always the opportunity to be my ambassador. In your actions, in your inactions, in the way you treat people. In the things you talk about. In the things you don't talk about. In the the solutions you offer in the peace you walk in. All of it it is serving me and my Kingdom. 

The life you lead is a greater testimony than any sermon. I have told you before. I convinced more people to follow me when I was on the earth by how I lived than I ever did by what I taught. Let the people of the world see that the people of the Kingdom live differently, better. Let them see that life with me is awesome. Let them see you living with me. 

That is "life balance" when it comes to serving me. Love you sweet daughter.

Loving like God...

My prayer:

Sweet Father. I am in unfamiliar waters right now and I need your help and direction. I am doing my best to stay focused on you knowing that you will take care of everything else. It can be hard sometimes though. 

I pray God and ask that you block the distractions, anything that is trying to keep me from your will. Help me God to see myself how you see me and not what others say about me. Help me God to see others as you see them, for their promise and covered in your blood of forgiveness. Help me God to be so in touch with your love that I heal quickly from the emotional pain that comes with living life in this world. 

God I pray for a flood of your love tonight over the entire world. Flood us God so we can love like you love. 

What God Said Tonight:

Loving like me is a great goal. You will  love like me when your love is bigger than your ego. You will love like me when your love is more important that anything else. When you are willing to humble yourself and do anything just so someone knows they are loved. When you are ready to die to show someone how much you love them. 

Loving like me is not easy and is not always pleasant. It costs something to love like me. I love you and I don't expect you to love like me but I do expect you to love. I expect you to love as a response to my love. I expect you to love me and to love the people around you. I expect you to let offense roll off your back with the assurance that I am your Father and I give you your identity. 

I expect you to love the ones that no one else wants to love, when they are at their most unloveable. I expect you not to turn your back but look them in the face and love. 

You don't have to love like me but you do have to love like you, with the new heart I have given you. Love is a choice and love is your choice. Choose it daily.

I don't know...

My prayer:

I have nothing new to say tonight God. I love you. I am grateful for all that you do. I have the same struggles and the same challenges that seem to cycle back to me over and over which is SUPER frustrating. 

I wish I was a better student for you God. I wish I was a faster learner so I didn't have to go through the same thing over and over. But, I am not. So, here I am, at the end of me and completely open to whatever you have. Which, I guess is a pretty good place to be. I love you Daddy!

What God Said Tonight:

The people you most admire. What do they have in common? It is not that they are perfect? It is that they never give up. It is that they are transparent and admit that they struggle. 

You do not need to have the answer. There is much you do not yet know and that is ok. That is what makes life exciting and worth waking up tomorrow. You are not me. You do not know the end from the beginning. You are left in the difficult but enviable place of just trusting me . 

Trust me in ALL things. Trust me even in the things that you think are not going right. Trust me in the things that you think I don't care about. Truth is I care about everything that you care about because I love you so much. 

I an interested in everything that you are interested in because I love you like crazy, I can't stop thinking about you. You are my whole reason. You, and your brothers and sisters are my entire purpose. And, out of that deep love, I will take care of your heart, your dreams, your worries, your needs. Now and forever my love.

The power behind the process...

My prayer:

You are incredible God!! You heal us even when we aren't even praying for that. We were praying tonight for deliverance from smoking and you gave her new lungs! We were praying for healing for my head and you healed my heart...and then my head. In some ways you are super predictable. I mean, I know that you will always love me and work everything out for my good. But, the way you get there is ALWAYS a surprise. Thank you for surprising me daily God!

What God Said Tonight:

How we get to where we are going is not really important. However, I never want you to think it is the process that got us there. You must always remember that I got us there. 

That is why I change things around. That is why I healed one blind man by spitting on him and another through prayer. That way you can always remember that it is the power behind the process and not the process itself. If you start to get too tied up in the process, that becomes witchcraft and gets really dangerous. 

Trust in me and enjoy the ride.

Turn it to our good...

My prayer:

Hi Father God! I have a lot of thoughts running through my mind but nothing really worthy of talking about. Although, if I could concentrate on one or two of them, it would probably be good to talk them out with you. 

I guess the one thing that I really do need to talk to you about is it seems like in the last few days, I have so many friends who going through so many horrible things. It is just one thing after another and although I have prayed for each of them individually, I feel like there may be some sort of pattern or attack? Maybe it is just these end times we are in? 

I don't know God but I what I do know is that I can call on you for anything. So, I call on you for this. I pray God that your will is done. I pray that everything and anything that is not your will is stopped in its tracks and turned for the good of those who love you. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

I am your refuge and your strength. I am your fortress and I will keep you safe. There is nothing that can happen that I can't use for good. I can and will turn every situation around for your benefit, for my children's benefit. I am a good God and I am a good Father. I will not let my children suffur for no reason. I will lead them out. 

I hear the cries of my children and I will not turn my back. I will not turn a blind eye. I will comfort them. I have overwhelming compassion for my children. Everything I do is to make sure as many of my children make it to the eternal place of joy and peace with me. I am desperately gathering my people together as the time is short. 

In that gathering there are hurt people, Do not judge the hurt people. You are one of them. Cradle and comfort them as they come into this family. Love them through the healing time. 

I love you daughter and I guess my thoughts are following the tangled mess of yours a bit tonight. I love you and I always will. We are in this together forever.

Truth, freedom, and dandelions...

My prayer:

Mighty God. Pastor Don said something last Sunday and we just were talking about in group tonight. The more I think about this, the more I am sure that it is true and completely changes how I look at the really big challenges in this life. He said that "Most people will tell you that God never gives you more than what you can handle; but, I think God never gives you more than He can handle." 

When I think about it that way, I NEVER have to worry about anything. There is nothing too big for you and as long as I have you, there is nothing that can take me out because you will handle it. That is really liberating! 

It is more than the saying that whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger. It is that my strength is not really the issue. I have your strength in me and you on my side so my strength isn't a part of what is necessary. Anyway, I am probably just blathering on at this point but I want to thank you for that wisdom. Thank you that you are always teaching me!

What God Said Tonight:

You are free. Free indeed. You have a bit more truth tonight and truth will always set you free. 

There is joy in freedom. Remember what it was like when you were young to chase the dried dandelions through the field as they floated on the breeze? Truth brings freedom like that. It brings a joyful abandon from worry and a celebration. 

Get as much truth as you can in your life. Run from lies and surround yourself in truth. Lies are the cancer of this world. They will destroy everything in their path and they multiply without any restraint. The truth will stand strong and unmovable forever. 

The more truth you have in your life, the less chance there is for lies to come in. Love you daughter.

Land of victory...


My prayer:

So, today was pretty great God. I had meetings all day and every single person said "yes!" Kind of making my head spin but, wow! Super amazing wonderful fantastic! You are so GOOD!! Life with you is so GREAT! 

You are my comfort when things go wrong. You are my provider when I am in need. You are my teacher when I an unwise. You are my salvation when I sin. You are my healer when I am sick. You are my joy...ALL THE TIME!! LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Living in victory. Victory is a country that I created just for you. I created it for you to live in. So often, my people get stuck in defeat. Defeat is like a thick mud puddle that sucks you in if you let it. If you stay for any length of time dwelling on defeat, you will sink down in it and it will be harder and harder to get out. 

Instead, recognize that you home, the place I created for you is a land of victory. I always planned for my family to be victorious. Not just in the end but to live in victory. I have made the place. Now, come live in it. 

Pull yourself out of defeat. Stop thinking that the mud puddle of defeat is your home. Pull yourself out and come live in the land of victory. You were made for it.

Goofy...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I am so tired. Three hours of sleep is just not enough but somehow you brought me through this day. 

Best part of today was that idea you had last night of the Random Acts of Kindness Week. It has been so much fun seeing what your people are doing with that. I can see it as these great waves of goodness just going out around the world. Wow, that sounded a bit goofy but it is beautiful in my head. 

Ok, I should probably stop talking and just listen since my thoughts are so jumbled. Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I like it when you are goofy. I like it when you let down the mask of self assuredness and just be yourself with me. 

I already know everything there is about you. There is no reason to ever have a mask on with me. I know that life is hard and sometimes you feel the need to protect yourself but you never have to protect yourself against me. I am always on your side. 

You can literally let it all hang out with me and I promise, I PROMISE, I will never reject you. I will always love you. No matter how ugly you think you are, I always see your beauty. I always see your potential. I always see the joy that I planted in the core of you. I LOVE YOU.

What if...

My prayer:

Precious Father. Sitting here tonight, thinking, what if.. What if every part of my life was great at the exact same time? What if the physical, spiritual, and emotional parts of me were all fully satisfied at the same time? Maybe it would be too much good and I would just pass out? I would like to try it someday and see. 

I guess if I was fully satisfied in every area of my life, I would have nothing to strive for or to work for and that would get boring pretty quick. I am trying to find reasons tonight God to be at peace with the things that are not right. 

There are some things that are simply not right and I don't know what, if anything I can do to make them right. I hate "wrongness" in my life. But, there is SO MUCH that is right in my life, I feel ungrateful to even notice the things that are not right. Uggh! I just need to get out of my own head tonight God. How about I listen and stop talking...

What God Said Tonight:

Why are you disquieted, oh my soul? If you are going to focus on this, make sure you are focusing on the right thing. Look deep into your soul for the root of it. You know the roots, bitterness, fear, sin, unbelief...to name a few. 

Find the root and attack the root. When you get at the root, the plant, the result of the root, will right itself soon enough. I love you and it is the desire of my heart to give you the desires of your heart. Make sure you know what those are.

Faithful...

My prayer:

My God. You are so good to me that people would get jealous if they really knew. Your blessings are so amazing. Thank you is a paltry response for all that you have done for me. There are no words that really address what you have done. There are no words for what you do every day. Maybe that's why we, why I, feel the need to do more for you every day. I desperately want you to know how grateful I am and I search daily to find ways to show you. God, today was decadent and wonderful and I want to say, show, and in whatever way I can demonstrate how grateful I am.

What God Said Tonight:

Nothing missing and nothing lacking...true shalom. That is what I desire for you my daughter. There is a place and a purpose on your life that will create my ability to love the world in ways that have not been seen before. I am going to create in you a new way of showing the world my love.

I have seen your faithfulness and I have seen your heart. I don't have any illusions. You are not perfect, except thorough my blood and my sacrifice. But you are faithful to do what I ask you to do, no matter how crazy and I honor your faithfulness. I honor your willingness to stay with it until I say stop. I honor you tonight.

I have so much more for us to do. It will be wonderful. But, tonight, today, is all about me appreciating you and blessing you. It is as important to learn to receive as it is to give. Through both is the river of life.

I love you daughter and I will continue to give to you as long as you continue to give to others. I promise.

Satan's tricks...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am mad at the enemy tonight God. He is so predictable and so sneaky all at the same time. He has no new tricks up his sleeve. All he does is lie, cheat, steal, kill, and cause division. But, even though I know that, I still can get caught up in it. 

God I pray for a day when I don't let myself get caught up by the devil and his stupid tricks. I pray for the day when I can shake them off as easily as Paul did with the poisonous snake. God, I pray for your help to recognize his tricks earlier and walk away from them more completely. Thank you Jesus!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Satan has no power over your life. You are my redeemed child and I will protect you from him. End of story. 

Everything else is a lie. Live in the truth of your position as a redeemed child of me and you will not struggle against his tricks. My redemption, the price I paid for you, is stronger than anything he has. 

I love you daughter and will never relax my protection over you.

Missing the dream....

My prayer:

My God. There is one dream, you know the one, that I had given up on. I had decided that it hadn't happened yet so it wasn't going to. I thought I was at peace with that. But now, when it looks like maybe, it still could happen...maybe, now I am all excited and scared all over again. 

God, fact is, no matter what I think or feel, I want your will, nothing more and nothing less in my life. Your perfect will. I know that your will is greater than anything I can imagine. Your will be done God. That is my prayer. I love you. I will love your people. And, your will be done.

What God Said Tonight:

Rest in the calm assurance that I remain in charge. There is nothing happening and nothing that will happen in your life that I am not in complete charge. 

You worry that you will miss something. You worry that if you are not paying close enough attention that you will miss some move, some action that you will need to take. I tell you now, with no hesitation and no doubt, you will not miss what I have for you as long as you focus on me. There is no action or inaction that you can take that will make you miss my will if you are focued on me. If you are talking with me, if you are listening to me and if you are remembering me in all things, there is nothing n my wiill that will pass you by if your focus is directly on me. I will make sure of it. 

I love you daughter and I feel you anxiousness. I promise I will not make you wait one second longer than necessary for this dream. I love you .

One way to love...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I just want to thank you tonight for the freshness that you have brought in our relationship. In someways, it is like when I first decided to live for you. I am excited by the idea of hanging out with you. 

But in some ways, it is even better because now, I know you. I know how good you are. I know that you won't ever leave me. I know that you love me. Kind of like falling in love with your best friend. 

Maybe that is the difference God. I have always loved you but now, I am in love with you. I don't know if I am explaining it well, but it is amazing and wonderful. Thank you.

What God Said Tonight:

I only know one way to love and that is all in love. I have loved you since the beginning of time. I have treasured you each and every day. I save your tears because I love you so much. I am passionate about our life together. I love you and always will. 

My love is not dependent yon your love for me but your ability to receive my love is dependent on your love for me. You can't believe that I truly love you unless you love me. You can't believe that I truly know you unless you love me. You can't trust me unless you love me. Your love for me will determine what you can receive. I, for that reason, am so happy that you have found this new level with me. You will be able to do, see, experience more. It is going to be fun!

God's path...

My prayer:

Hi God! My thoughts are really scattered tonight so I have no idea if this will make sense but hopefully you will hear my heart. So many opportunities and possibilities in life right now, I am not sure if I can keep up. God I pray for wisdom and for favor. I pray God that you open every door that you want open and you shut every door that you want shut. God, help me follow what you want in my life in every aspect. I don't really trust my own judgement right now...at least in some areas. But, I trust you and I know that you know the end from the beginning so keep me on the right paths. Thank you!!!

What God Said Tonight:

My path is not always the easiest but it is always the best. My path is full of joy and with peace. It is not free of danger but it is free of death. It is free of the entanglements of sin. It is free of the guilt that comes with sin. 

It is the path that leads you to the future that I ordained for you and it is the path that leads to everlasting life. Every thing good in life can be found along my path. Every thing evil in life can be found on the other paths. 

Follow my path and you will see the beauty of the son rising in the new heaven and the new earth. Bring people with you and you will experience a multiplied joy in that sight. 

I love you daughter and I will guide you always. I am your Father and your teacher. I will not let you down.

Choose again...

My prayer:

God, my God. You are wonderful. I love you. I am anxious to hear your voice tonight.

What God Said Tonight:

You have given me your life. You have told me that I can use you in any way that I want to. You gave me permission to change you. 

Right now tonight, I need to know, I need to hear from you, do you still want those things? Do you still give me complete authority over your life? Do you still want to live your life for me and my purpose? 

Don't answer until you have thought about it. This is not something to be taken lightly. If the answer is "no", I will still love you. I will still guide you. I will still be here for you; however, you will not be living in the great promise I have for your life and you will miss out on great joy to me, the Kingdom, and you. 

If you say yes, I can promise you that it won't be easy. You know that the walk has been tough at times and that will not change. I will continue to push you to grow. I will continue to guide you, love you, keep you. But, if you choose me, I can lead you into the great promise that I have for your life. 

Tonight is a night to rededicate or to decide to walk away. I will love you no matter what. Choose carefully and don't choose until you mean it with every part of your being.

Season of change...

My prayer:

Today was good God. Just hanging out with you, nothing fancy, but good. I am feeling a bit back on course but I still have that feeling of something slightly off. I don't like feeling that way. It robs my peace. Is it you telling me something needs to change or is it just me? I love you God and it was so good to have a day to just focus on you. I haven't done that in TOO LONG. And, when I don't get that time with you, I am no good to anyone. What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

You are sensing a season of change. I told you a little while ago that I needed you to wait. The wait is almost over and part of the unease is the awareness of that change. 

Change is hard but it will be good. I promise. I will guide you and direct you always. I will take you through this season just as I have every season.. You are not alone. You are never alone. I am with you and guiding you each step of the way. I will never leave you or turn my back. 

I will guide you. I won't let you stumble around in the dark. I am the light that guides you. Your job is simple, focus on me and love....love me and everyone else. Love like crazy. You do those two things and I promise I will work all of the rest of the details out. Love you.

Love....

My prayer:

What a whirlwind today was. There was no predicting today. Nothing went as planned, or at least how I planned it but everything was perfect.  Thank you for reconciliation. Thank you for letting me be at the site of the motorcycle wreck so I could help and pray. And thank you for the reminder of the reality of love and the joy that it brings by letting me see two of the best people I know get married tonight God. 

I  know that I have a lot of work to do. I have gotten off track and I am totally willing to do what it takes to get back or I guess, move forward in my life and our relationship. I love you God. Thank you for all that you are.

What God Said Tonight:

Love, love love, that is it. that is the meaning and the purpose for everything.

Love has been made into such a sad shadow of its true existence. Love is not a pink heart valentine. Love is something that survives no matter what. Love is not swayed by the weather or the climate. Love is constant. Real love will love no matter what. It will love you when you at your best and it will love you when you at your worst.

That is love you deserve and that is the love I have for you. Trust my love because it will never change.

Fog...

My prayer:

God, I am not in a good place tonight. My thoughts aren't right and my emotions aren't right. I am not sure how I got here but I don't want to stay here. Disunity and division are killers and I somehow let them into my life. 

I take authority in Jesus name right now and say to both, you must leave! One Spirit and one purpose. God, you are the only thing that matters. How we get to you doesn't matter. How we tell people about you doesn't matter (as long as we do it). 

Maybe I just lost track of the purpose as I got tangled in the details. 

Oh God, thank you! I feel the release already! I feel the anger and fatigue leaving! Thank you God!!! It doesn't seem like it should be that simple, but it is. So much better God, THANK YOU! Keep you first, keep you first, keep you first...and everything else you will take care of. So simple but so true!

What God Said Tonight:

You had some clouds, some fog that was blurring your vision and keeping you from seeing clearly. The fog comes from the distractions that you allow in your life. The fog comes from the things that you allow to get between us. 

Life has been pretty challenging lately and I understand why you are where you at; but, it is time to push the distractions out of the way and be totally focused on me again. We need some real time together so I can fill you up. We need some real time together so you can remember and feel my love. The five minute power prayers are not quite enough. 

I need more of you. I love you and I get jealous when you are away from me.

God's dust...


My prayer:

You are wonderful God. Simply and truly wonderful.You always listen, you always help, you always teach and you always forgive. 

I love that you never change. I love that in this world of chaos, you are the same today as you were thousands of years ago. You are perfect and any change would make you less than perfect and you can't be less than perfect because you are the perfect God of everything!

What God Said Tonight:

Picture a beautiful forest with the sunlight coming down through the branches. Experience the peace of that place. Look up and see the sunlight shining in. See the dust in the beams of the light. The light reflects off of the dust. Dust is not beautiful on its own...ever. But, dust in the beam of light is beautiful. It shines and becomes feathery. It looks like a tiny sculpture. The light reflecting off of it makes it beautiful.

You are like dust. On your own, no one would notice but in the reflection of my light you are so beautiful. I love you daughter. Be my dust.

God's gift...

My prayer:

All knowing God. I am sitting here tonight thinking about how great it is that I have an opportunity to learn from every person and every situation in my life. Everything I do, everything I experience, everything I hear about someone else experiencing is and opportunity if I will recognize it as such. That is kind of amazing when I really think about it. I am sorry for every experience that I have wasted and not learned from. Help me God to recognize the opportunity to learn so that I can be better.

What God Said Tonight:

I have given you a book full of experiences to learn from. I never meant for life to be so hard. I planned and provided for you to have the answers even before you had the question. Study my word and you will no how to handle any and every situation that comes your way. 

My word is alive and active. It is alive in that it speaks as loudly today as it did in the past. It is as relevant today as it was in the past. It is active in that it changes things. When you speak it and believe it, it will change the atmosphere and the situation. My word is powerful. My word is my gift to you. 

I love you daughter. Use my gift to make life a bit easier to get through.
