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.

God's protection...

My prayer:

Amazing and wonderful God. I am so grateful that I know you God. I am grateful that you put excellent teachers around me to teach me about you before I was able to hear you for myself. 

Thank you for making it plain in your word and leaving that so any of us can get to know you. Thank you God that you are always true to who you are and that every experience in this life reinforces the God that I know. God, thank you for being love. Thank you for not being angry with me. Thank you for being ever patient with me. Thank you for providing a way to salvation for me that did not require me to be perfect. Thank you God for loving me today, yesterday and tomorrow. 

I love you God!

God, this world can be a bit scary sometimes. I was reminded today of that. I pray and ask that you put your hedge of protection around me, my family, my friends and keep us safe. Please always remember to keep that army of warrior angels around me. And, make sure they know how much I appreciate them too!

What God Said Tonight:

There is a cloud over you tonight but it does not have to be there. I will ALWAYS protect you. I will never let the enemy hurt you in that way again. 

I think what you realized today was something that you use to know but maybe forgot. You forgot that people, even really good people, can make bad choices. I think you forgot that even though you are protected and in my will that you will see things sometimes that are ugly. I think you forgot that sometimes you make choices and do things that are not so pretty either. 

Do not judge and rest in the absolute knowledge that I am with you and I will protect you now and forever. I love you and I am your defense against the enemy. I am your Father and your protector. I am your guard and your army. I am your offense and your defense. 

I love you daughter and I will keep you safe.

Listening to God...

My prayer:

Well, today wasn't anything like I thought it would be. If I had just listened to you, I could saved myself some time. Holy Spirit, you try to help me out all the time with that still small voice. I want to be better about listening to you during the day. You try to help, but I get so busy or so intent on what I think I should be doing that I ignore you and end up wasting time and energy. I feel pretty stupid God. Help me to listen better?

What God Said Tonight:

I can speak but I can't make you hear. I can lead, but I can't make you follow. I gave you free will. I gave you the choice. I will always speak, guide, help you  but it is really up to you to pay attention and to receive the help. 

That being said, today was no big deal. You needed a day of rest, you had one, even though it was somewhat imposed upon you. Things turned out just as they should. My will is still sovereign and in charge of your life. Your destination is set. How you get there is up to you.

How to get blessed...


My prayer:

What a weird day God. It was different and I said I wanted different. Careful for what you ask for, right? 

God, we have the big event tomorrow night. I pray and ask that you be in charge of every aspect. I ask that you bring every volunteer that you want  to be there to be the perfect team for what you want to do. I pray over the speakers that you anoint them to speak your words. I pray over the technology and the sound/lights that nothing can interfere with what you have to say. I pray that it touches people's hearts so that your ministry can continue to do what you want it to do. Thank you God for the opportunity to be a part of it.

What God Said Tonight:

If you are living in my will, you don't really have to pray for me to bless it. You can still pray. It will make you feel more assured but I will bless the things that I want to happen. I will bless those that follow my lead. I will bless the things that I want to move forward and succeed. 

I am with you my daughter and I am blessing your steps because they are ordered by me. You will always win in the end when you walk in my steps for you. You are destined to succeed. Remember that? How many times have you been told that? Well, it is true. Bit it is true because you are in my will. 

Rest assured that I am with you and I want you to be blessed as much or even more than you want to be blessed. I want to see the event prosper as much or more than you do. It is my desire to see you prosper and I will see that it happens. 

I love you daughter. Get some rest for tomorrow will be a long day but a good one.

If at first you don't succeed...

My prayer:

Mighty God. I am looking forward to a change of pace tomorrow God. Still a busy day but doing different things at least. Definitely fell into a rut these last couple of weeks of crazed busyness. I love that you are always fresh and you are always new, even though you never change. It is one of those mysteries of you God that doesn't make sense when you say it out loud but somehow is entirely true anyway. You go beyond our ability to explain you and that is pretty cool. I love you God and can't wait to see what you have in mind next.

What God Said Tonight:

I have just a few words tonight. Your life is full of purpose. Don;t always take the easy road. So many things come easy to you because of the favor I have on your life.  However, every once in awhile, I have something for you but you will need to work for it. I will need you to keep trying even when you are not very good at it the first time. I have a few things for you that I need you to fail at first so that when you go back and succeed, you know that you only succeed because of me in you. I love you so much and can't wait to see you breakthrough.

Beautiful love...

My prayer:

Amazing God you are so beautiful. Your love is so beautiful. Your promises are so beautiful. Your will is so beautiful. You are so beautiful. There is a clarity and a beauty in your presence that I don't find anywhere else. God, I honor your beauty tonight.

What God Said Tonight:

Mmmm. Let me love you tonight. Let me show you how much I love you. Let me wrap my arms around you so you can feel my love. Let me blanket you with peace and joy so you might know my love for you. Let me show you visions of the future so you might know my love for you. Let me shower you with blessings so you might know my love for you. Let me rain my love down on your so it covers all that you are and nourishes you to grow into all that I have for you. 

My love for you is NEVER in question. It is the one thing you can ALWAYS count on. I love, love love you!

Enjoy the mystery...

My Prayer:

Awesome God. I just want to listen tonight. What do you want to talk about? I am all ears...

What God Said Tonight:

I am going to ask one thing of you tonight. Stop trying to figure it all out. Get out of your head for a little while and understand that there are mysteries in this life that you may never fully know and understand. 

Then, instead of getting angry about that, try and recognize the beauty of the mystery. It is the mystery of life that keeps it interesting. You do not need to always have the answer. Only I have that. Only I can know everything. And, because I am your father, I will always make sure you know what you need to know when you need it. 

But, for now, stop. Study to gain knowledge but know that you will never know it all. Don't expect that or try for it. Enjoy the beauty of mystery.

Right here...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Today was a day of remembering lessons you have already taught me like how to battle through when the enemy comes at me from every direction. 

God, thank you for all that you have taught me over the years about battle. Thank you for being my protector and my rear guard. Thank you God that you and your will are ALWAYS victorious in the end. 

God, I am fighting off fear tonight because you have not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. I love you, I trust you, I am grateful for you and for all that you teach me. Leaving it in your hands tonight God.

What God Said Tonight:

I am right here, I am right with you. The struggle has a purpose and the battle has a reason. You are getting stronger in this season and you are trusting me. You not the reason for this battle but you will benefit from it in the end. You are the vehicle I need to do this thing and I am grateful that you are willing. 

I will not let it last any longer than absolutely necessary. I am at the controls watching for the exact moment that I can switch the rails and see you victorious in my glory. You will see the glory of God in this. 

Keep your eyes on me. When fear comes, keep your eyes on me. When attacks come, remember that I am right with you to fight. You are NEVER ALONE. I am ALWAYS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. I love you too much to ever leave you. And, when I am with you, who or what can cause you to be afraid?

Missing peace...

My prayer:

Mighty God, I ask that you clear my mind tonight. So many thoughts crowding in and I just want rest. I want to turn it all off for just a little while. Your blessings are amazing and you are filling my life with more wonderful opportunities than I know what to do with. I just need, or I just want a few hours to turn it all off and be at peace. 

Huh, I bet that is the key. It is not that there is too much going on, it is that I have lost focus and contact with your peace that passes all understanding. God, I pray for you peace tonight. Flood me with your peace that I can rest and be ready for tomorrow. Thank you Jesus!

What God Said Tonight:

My peace is yours and always has been. Turn from your worry and your thoughts and turn toward my peace. Remember that I knew that all of this was going to happen and I knew it was going to happen right now. I am not surprised by the events of today. I am not even surprised by the events of tomorrow. 

I promise, you are still on the right track. I promise I will not leave you. I promise that I really will finish the work I have begun in you. I promise. Rest in the complete assurance that I will take care of you now and forever. 

I will make sure that you know what to do and when to do it. You do not have to try to predict what comes next I already know and I will let you know when you need to know it. I promise. I love you and I will not make you walk this life alone.

Word bricks...

My prayer:

The power of life and death really is in our tongue. I think I realize that more than ever tonight God. Our words can encourage someone and leave them flying high or they can crush them. Just through words. Careless words, my careless words, have caused more damage than I will probably ever know. 

Help me God to be more aware of my words and their effect. Help me to be more thoughtful about the things that I say. God help me to use my words to heal and not harm. Protect and not attack. God, let your words be my words.

What God Said Tonight:

Words are like bricks, they can build great things but they can destroy just as easy. It all depends on how they are wielded. If you carefully place them in the right place at the right time with other words, you can build a great pyramid or a mansion. If you throw them, one by one or even worse, as a big load, you can kill and destroy. 

Words were intended to be used to build, to encourage, to create. It is only when they are used for a purpose that they were not made for that we run into trouble. Be careful with your bricks.

Golden mist...

My prayer:

Following you is so easy God. Well, I guess what I mean is once I let go of my agenda and decide to follow you, it is all so easy from then on. When I wait on you, trust you, and follow you, it all comes so easy and is so amazing!!
Thank you for letting me be a part of what you are doing. Thank you for the amazing people you have put in my life that I get to love and who love me. Thank you God for the opportunities to see you do the amazing and the incredible in their lives! Love you SO MUCH!!

What God Said Tonight:

There is a mist on the horizon that is lit with a golden glow. It is a sign of what is to come. There is a fire and and a power that is on the way. I have told you of it before. I want you to be fully ready. 

The power that is coming in this wave is unlike anything you have ever seen. It will frighten many, but you have been prepared. You will know it for what it is. You will know it as a sign that I am near. You will recognize it as a sign that I am in charge and that things are about to change. 

I love you daughter and I will take you as far as you are willing to go in this journey.

Change in nature...

My prayer:

Amazing God. You have given each of us great gifts and talents. I want to be better about appreciating the gifts in others without being jealous of them. I want to be better about appreciating what you have given me and appreciating what you have given others and being satisfied in that. God, you know best. 

You know what I need to accomplish what you have for me in my life and you know what each other person needs to accomplish what you have for them. I pray that you help me to always appreciate that and to never envy. There is enough work to go around and I want to be sure I am doing what you want me to do and not what you had saved for someone else. Thank you Jesus for listening.

What God Said Tonight:

Now that is they kind of prayer that is easy to answer. And my answer to that kind of prayer is always going to be yes. When you pray for things to change so that they are in agreement with my word and my plan for you, the answer is always yes. I will always help you to live according to my word. 

You are coming back to the form and the nature that I intended for you. You are shucking off the sin nature and you are walking in the new nature that I have for you. It is not natural for you to hate, envy, lie, cheat or steal. It is not natural for you to kill. And yet those things have become the nature of man in sin. 

You are returning now to the nature that I intended for you . You are returning to the nature that is creative and not destructive, loving and not hateful, joyful and not morose. Welcome back my daughter. Your change in nature is nearly complete.

DON'T DIY...

My prayer:

All knowing God. Figuring out this life, what to do, what not to do, when to do it, how to do it, all of it, is hard sometimes. I am crazy grateful that I get to come to you and ask for help and guidance. I can't imagine trying to navigate life without your wisdom and help. 

There are so many choices. Sometimes, like tonight, I just get tired of needed to make choices. I would like just a little bit of time tonight to rest my mind and not choose...anything, except of course to love you and spend time with you. Just a little vacation from choosing.

What God Said Tonight:

You only have to make one choice and that is to chose me. Every other choice is a result of that one choice. 

You are taking too much on yourself again. You are trying to do it on your own. That is why you are feeling tired and overwhelmed. Trust in me, rest in me, know that I am still in control. I will guide you and direct you and show you each thing I need you to do as you need to do it. You know from experience that is true. 

You are not in this alone. I do not expect you to do it on your own. I never did. Lean on me my daughter and I will carry you through. I will make sure you are right where you need to be. Keep choosing me and everything else, I will take care of.

Appreciate the gift...

My prayer:

Here I am again Lord, asking for more, fill me up completely...I love that song God. It so fits tonight. Here I again Lord, asking for more, fill me up completely. You are what I want, now and forever.

What God Said Tonight:

You can't really appreciate a gift that you give to someone else unless you have first experienced that gift yourself. Until you have had something yourself you can't appreciate what a blessing it is to someone else. Everything that I give to people through you I will first give to you. I will anoint you first. Then, I will ask you to go and anoint others. 

I will never ask you to give something that I haven't already given to you. I am protecting you and the gifts. I am making sure each day that those gifts are with the people I have picked out for them. I have targeted the gifts for the people I believe will appreciate them. 

Have you ever spent a really long time picking out the perfect gift for someone only to have them barely notice when you give it to them? I feel that way sometimes. I give gifts and never see the joy or appreciation for the gift. 

Remember that every blessing I give you is for you but is for every person you ever meet as well. I share things with you so that I can multiply those blessings through you to the world. If you let me, I will multiply it all through you to bless the world and my people in it. Are you up for that? Love you.

Fire is coming...

My prayer:

Amazing God. My thoughts are all over the place tonight. Thank you for the amazing favor today. Thank you for reconnecting me with an old friend. Thank you for the new insight you gave me while reading in the book of Luke tonight. I guess I am thanking you for blessing me, for love and for wisdom. That about covers it! Thank you for the little things that I often take for granted. Thank you for a roof over my head and food in my stomach. Thank you for health and for healing. Thank you for a family who loves me. Thank you for keeping me safe physically, emotionally and sprititually. Thank you for being the best Father I could ever hope for! Love you and can't wait to hear your voice...

What God Said Tonight:

A fire is coming that will burn out the overgrowth and will provide great nutrients for the coming spring. The fire is not bad. It is needed. The fire is a tool that seems destructive at first but leaves behind it the fodder, the fuel for new growth. 

No one likes the fire, although if you take the time to look, it really is quite beautiful. But, no one really likes the fire. But it is necessary. Nothing else can provide the environment for the type and extent of growth that we are going to need. 

I don't ask you to like the fire but I do ask you to trust me in the middle of it. Trust that I am still in charge and that I will not let it hurt you. I am with you every step of the way.

PARTY TIME...

My prayer:

What an amazing day GOD!!! Thank you for letting me be a part of what you were doing today. Thank you for the saved lives. Thank you for the healed minds, bodies and spirits. Thank you for the baptisms into new life!!!! THANK YOU for making a way for us to have a new life in you. I love you so much and I am so excited to see more people getting to know you!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

It is party time here in heaven! We are celebrating with you. We are so excited about the new lives that were saved today that I can barely take the time to talk. We are too busy dancing and reveling in the new souls that were added to the Kingdom today. 

I have such great plans for these new souls. I can't wait to get started showing them who they are now. I can't wait to show them all that I have for them. I need you to help show them. Show them how to live a glorious life each day, in me. Show them the joy of living in Christ. Show them...everything. 

I love you daughter but I have to get back to the party! Sing, dance and celebrate with us for today was a glorious day!!!

Rules...

My prayer:

Today was wonderful God. I love your Sabbath. Thank you for teaching me the importance of rest. When I do it. When I take one day a week and rest, everything else goes so much better. It isn't easy. This crazy paced life and the demands on my time make it hard to have a whole day with no work. But, it is so worth it. 

There are so many things like that in your Word and in your Kingdom God. Things that you teach us because it will make our lives better that for so many years I thought was just tiresome religion. When did your advice on good living turn into burdensome rules? I guess the better way to ask that is when and why did we turn your advice into burdensome rules? I love you Daddy and love what you teach me!

What God Said Tonight:

Rules are logical and can be followed. When they are not followed you can point the finger at someone and say, "You messed up." There is something in human nature, sin nature, that likes that. There is something in sin nature that feels better about its own sin when it can point out sin in someone else. 

Rules are almost always for the other person, not you. You are a special case. You have special circumstances that excuse you from the rules...or at least that is what you think. 

Rules in themselves truly are not bad but the way people use them can be devastating. It is important to recognize my "rules" as key bits of knowledge to help you live a better life. They are in place to guide you and help you when you are lost and not sure what to do. They are your road map to life. 

They are not there as a set up for punishment. They are not there to use as a bat over someone else's head. They are there for you, to help you, not to hurt you. Take a careful look at every "rule" I have for you in my Word. Every one of them is to help you live a better, happier, more productive life. They are to give you peace, not guilt. 

I love you daughter and stay teachable. It is the best thing you can do.

Season of dreams...

My prayer:

Whew! Made through this week, THANK YOU GOD! I am pretty wiped out but as always, want to hear what you have to say. I am hear to listen if you are up for a talk. Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I have dreams for you that have been hidden away and waiting for the right time. The time is here. I am going to ignite dreams in you that you have forgotten. I am going to birth new dreams in you that will be more than you can imagine. Tonight is the beginning of new dreams in your life. 

Dream big and dream often. The dream is the first step in getting anywhere good. Welcome to your season of dreams.

Forever changed...

My prayer:

Mighty and all knowing God. I am thinking about your blood tonight. The blood you shed that provided salvation for us. It is something that I grew up learning about and have always accepted but as I think about it, why blood? Why, before you came and died for us, did it require animal's blood to cover sin. Why did it require your blood to cover sin for us for all time? What is it about the blood that makes it the appropriate sacrifice? Sounds like I have some studying to do!

I love you God. What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

My blood is pure. there is no tarnish or speck in it. It is pure and holy. Everything that is touched by my blood is forever changed. It is made pure just by being touched by my purity. My purity and my holiness is great enough to overcome any evil. 

It is important to understand that the essence of me covers you, cleanses you and makes you holy. Once white paint has a drop of red in it, it is never truly white again. The red changes it forever. The same is true of my blood. Once touched by my blood, you are never again the same. You are forever changed. 

I love you daughter and never stop being curious.

Not your battle...

My prayer:

My healing God. I want to say a humble thank you for all of the healing that you are accomplishing in me this week. Things that I got accustomed to and had lost hope of seeing healed, you are healing. Thank you. I am humbled by your generosity and goodness.

What God Said Tonight:

The battle is not yours and it never was. The weapons are not carnal and are not logical. You are in a battle for your soul every day, but it is not your fight. 

I have already fought the fight and won. The battle has always been between me and the enemy. You know how kids sometimes get hit with the crossfire during a divorce? It is kind of like that. The enemy hates me and wants to hurt me. He knows the best way to hurt me is to go after those who I love the most. That is why he targets you, my children.

Trust me to fight the battle and stay focused on me. I promise, I will win, I will protect you. I will never let him have you. You are mine and I will not let go. I love you and have waited too long for you to ever give you up.

Life's facets...

 My prayer: 

Wonderful God. This daily communion commitment I made with my church family has been AWESOME! I love ending each day in conscious remembrance of you and your sacrifice for me. I also love the healing that I have experienced! THANK THANK THANK YOU!!! I didn't know how much longer I was going to be able to stand those headaches and they have been completely gone for 24 hours now! I can't remember the last time I was completely pain free for 24 hours!! 

You are awesome and your power is humbling and wonderful. I love you so much and I am so grateful for YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

It really is all about what you choose to remember. It is about what you choose to think about. It is about what you decide is important in your life. Those are the things that will define your experience of life. 

Life is a many faceted thing. You get to choose what facets you focus on and that guides your experience in life. Do you know those people that are always miserable no matter what happens? How about the people that are always happy and at peace no matter what happens? The only difference between those two people is what they focus on. 

Both, all aspects of life are always present. But you define, you decide, what you are going to experience from it. There is no experience so bad that good can't come out of it and there is no experience so good that bad can't come out of it. You know the saying "Too much of a good thing..." well, it is true. 

Good, bad, indifferent, chose what you want to experience. If you don't like your experience today, take a look at what you are thinking about.

Your future...

My prayer:

Amazing God. There is so much hope when you are involved. That has really been on my mind the last week or so. When you are in something, I can hear news like someone is losing their job or someone is sick and instead of feeling bad, I can get excited to see how you are going to handle it. Same goes for when I get bad news. Instead of getting depressed and hopeless, I get to be excited and hopeful to see how you are going to work it all out.

That is the great thing about living for you God. I am SO GRATEFUL for the salvation you provided that allows me to live forever with you in heaven. But I am maybe even more grateful that you didn't stop there. I am grateful that you have blessings and help for me in this life because I am pretty sure I could not make it through one day without you. LOVE YOU GOD!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Your future is yours to discover. You don't HAVE to be any particular thing in the future. I have a great plan for your future and I know you will love it but if you want to try something else, you are free to do it. 

I will bless anything you choose to do as long as it is not sin. I will bless you because you are my daughter and I love you and I want you to succeed. 

If you want to trust me though, I do have a path that will lead to greater satisfaction and glory for my Kingdom than you can ever imagine. I have shown you the path. It is your choice of whether you will walk down it. I love you back sweet daughter, now and always.

Remember love...

My prayer:

What a privilege and an honor it is to know you God. I tend to forget sometimes how amazing it is that you want to know us, that you are willing to talk to us, lead us, guide us, help us, let alone save us from eternal damnation and hell. 

It is kind of like when you have been married a long time or have had a really good friend for a long time. I tend to forget how amazing they are until something happens that let's me see them through someone else's eyes and reminds me how amazing they really are. 

That happened today. Praying for a woman today and helping her to see that you really do love her and that you want to know her and seeing how incredible that was for her to understand...it reminded me of when I was still astonished by your love. 

God forgive me for ever taking your love for granted. Help me each day to remember how amazing this relationship with you really is. I will be more mindful and will find ways to appreciate you more. I love you God.

What God Said Tonight:

My love for you does not change. I love you more than you can imagine, always have and always will. It is good for you to remember that and to appreciate it, not for my sake but for your sake. 

When you remember how much I love you, it is easier for you to trust that I will work things out. It is easier for you to trust that I will heal you. It is easier to trust that I only have good plans for you. 

Please never forget that everything I have done and everything I will ever do is because of my love for you, my children. I am love and all that I do is a result of that love. Walk in the assurance of that love in your life. Good night and sweet dreams my love.

Messing up...

 My prayer:

What a weird day God. I messed up pretty bad but you made everything work out anyway! I have spent so much of my life worrying about messing up and failing. I have made myself pretty miserable over it at times. But today was such a great reminder that even when I really mess up, you can still work it out. 

Even when I am at my worst, you are always at your best and will take care of me. WOW! That is VERY COOL!! Thank you Daddy!

What God Said Tonight:

Your worst is never worse than my best. You can never mess up more than what I can fix. My blood was spilled for you and covers all sin. 

I still expect you to learn from mistakes but I don't ever expect you to carry guilt. I still expect you to recognize when you do wrong and turn from it but I never expect you to keep it in remembrance. 

You are covered now and always my daughter. My love is your covering, my blood is your salvation and my peace is your gift. I love you so much.

God's produce...

My Prayer:

What a wonderful night of worship with friends who really are family!  Loved it God and loved that you do something different every time we get together with this group! Life with you is exciting God. Thank you for giving me everything I need right when I need it!

What God Said Tonight:

My Kingdom is like the produce section of a grocery store or market. It is filled to the brim with beautiful, colorful, nutritious things and you are welcome to try them all. I encourage you to try them all. The more variety the better it is for you. 

But, undoubtedly you will find some things that you like better than others and that is ok too. It is ok to return to the things that you love as long as you keep trying new things and avoid getting in the dreaded rut. 

I love you daughter and I will always have new things for you to try to spice up your everyday favorites. Rest well for tomorrow there is more for you to sample.

Constant change...

My prayer:

I am learning to appreciate change in a whole new way God. So often, when I am following you and your will for my life, when change comes, it doesn't look good at first but if I trust you in it, it all works out for my good. I have seen it so many times now that I am no longer afraid of change. I look forward to change and even crave it sometimes. But, only because I can trust you. 

God, thank you for changing how I think about change and thank you for always making things work out for my good. LOVE YOU!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Change is constant. Everything, live things, dead things, things that were never alive in the first place are still always changing. Somethings just change at a slower rate and it is hard to perceive the change. 

The same is true of people. Everybody is changing constantly. Some just change faster than others. 

The only thing constant in this world is me. I am your rock and I am immovable. I will be today as I was yesterday and as I will be tomorrow. I will n3ver change. 

However, everything around me is in constant change. To think you are not changing is a delusion and a lie. Don't listen to the lie. Know that I am constantly helping you to become everything I created you to be and that means change. Live this life of change with me and see your success.

Faith is...

My prayer:

Awesome God, I have got to get some sleep tonight. I just drove home in the dark with my sunglasses on and did not realize it until I was halfway home. Clearly, I am not fully functional. 

Please God, whatever I need to learn in this season, show me quick and make it plain for me. Not sure I can keep this up. Love you God and I remain hopeful and trusting in you.

What God Said Tonight:

Faith is substance of that which is hoped for and the evidence of that which is not yet seen. Faith is evidence. Faith is the proof that there are promises on your life that have not yet shown up. Faith is the evidence that I am active in your life no matter what the circumstances look like. 

Your faith will see you through. Your faith will hold you up. Your faith is real and is the evidence to those around you that you live a different life. That you live your life for me. Faith that is evident is powerful to all those who witness it. This is a time to show off your faith. Let people see that you trust me no matter what the circumstance. Show people that we are in this together and that you will lean on me at all times. Show people that trouble doesn't bring you to doubt but it brings you to your faith. 

I love you daughter. I will not let you down. Your faith in me is safe.

Just life...

My prayer:

Mighty God. I am a bit at a loss for words tonight. You know that doesn't happen very often! Today was good. Everything continues to kind of move forward, some things faster than others. I can see your crazy favor in some areas and I struggle in others. Just life I guess. Nothing profound, just life. 

Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention today? Moving through life with blinders on? Anyway, here I am at the best part of the day, getting to hang out with you and hear what you want to talk about. What is on your mind God?

What God Said Tonight:

Life is a miracle. You live it everyday so you don't realize it but life is a miracle. It is a gift. It is something that I wanted each of my kids to get to experience, if only for a moment. 

There is a preciousness and value to life that can only be fully appreciated when it is over. Don't miss the beauty in the life around you. Don't miss the colors, the scents, the joy in life. 

I gave you life and I intend that you should enjoy it. Enjoy the sunshine on your face. Enjoy the people I have put with you. Enjoy the food I have given you. Enjoy the feel of a late summer breeze on your cheek. Don't miss the simple pleasures. 

I love you daughter and don't get so complacent that you miss the joy in life.

Incomplete testimony...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I have seen you do mighty miracles in my life in the lives of those around me. I have seen you heal time and again. I have seen you take situations that look like there is no answer and work everything out perfectly. I love seeing you do that stuff! Not just because of what it does for the person that it helps but how it shows you to bigger than anything we run into.

Then there are the things that, despite years of prayer, prayer of agreement with others, doing all that we know to do, giving it up to you, etc. etc., some things are still there. These crazy headaches God are still here and many other things that plague me and my friends. What is the deal with those things? What are we missing? What am I missing?

It is clearly not your will for me to live in pain. So why is this head of mine not living in your will? What do I need to do or not do? 

I love you God and I know that all things are possible in you. I believe and trust you. I need some help.

What God Said Tonight:

It is definitely not my will for you to live in pain but as you know, I never waste pain either. I never let you suffer for no reason. I never let you have more than what you can learn from. I promise this thing will not kill you and I promise it will be used for the good of you and my Kingdom. I promise that there is no thing in your life, in any of my kids lives, that is there for no reason. 

I am your refuge and your strength. I am you ever present help in times of trouble. I am here for you and I will make sure that this is not wasted pain. 

There is more to learn. There is more to understand. There is more to experience victory in this. Your testimony is not complete. I love you. Stick in there.

Interruptions...

My prayer:

Today was pretty wonderful God, not because of any of my plans but because of your plans. You clearly had a day full of divine appointments and worked everything out. Thank you for the opportunities to be a blessing. thank you for blessing me. Thank you for always having a better plan than my plan. I love you God. What is on your mind?

What God Said Tonight:

Life's interruptions are often opportunities in disguise. Thanks for going with it today and not getting stuck in "your" plans. I will always lead and guide you but I can't make you follow. I will never make you do anything. Your love is too important to me (just like the song says). 

I will never force you but I will always show you the way that is best for you and for me. I will never make you choose my way but I will always show you where it is.

I love you daughter and I am happy to see you becoming more flexible. We can do a lot more togehter when you are willing to change course just because I ask you to.

God's diamonds...

My prayer:

This day wore me out God. I am practically falling asleep sitting up but I don't want to end this day without spending this time with you and hearing what you have to say tonight. Love you and I am all ears.

What God Said Tonight:

You, my children, are my diamonds. You have been cut and shaped and your facets shine brilliantly as they reflect my light. You are so valuable and beautiful. You are stronger than the things that come against you because you have been hardened by heat and by pressure. You were once coal but you are now my beautiful diamonds. 

I love you and while your preparation was difficult, the result is amazing. Shine for me sweet daughter.
