Wow God, we have been doing this for 100 nights so far! You are so cool. The way that you make stuff work is amazing!
Thank you God for the ideas that you give me. Thank you for the way that you prosper those ideas. Thank you for opportunities to serve you every day.
Today was fantastic on so many levels. I am just kind of giddy God. There's a word I don't have the occasion to use very often but it fits tonight. I can't stop smiling! God thank you for joy. Life without joy would be so ridiculously hard and painful. These seasons of joy, and the anticipation of seasons of joy, keep me going during the tough times.
I love you God. Thank you for all that you are doing and all that you have given me. God help me to do everything you need me to do. Help me to stay focused on what you want and not get caught up in what I think should happen. Help me to remember that who I am and what I am worth is defined by you and nothing else. God help me to remember humility in the middle of success. You are mine and I am yours God. What's on your mind?
What God said tonight:
It was a really good day. So much is moving forward. I am excited too. Part of your excitement is the overflow of mine. Your joy is the overflow of my joy. Your pain is the overflow of my pain.
Everything you feel and experience, I have felt and experienced. Not because I had to but because it was important to me to understand you and be able to love you better. Loving is about finding what the person you love sees as being loved and doing that. That was why it was so important that I did the things the way I did. That is why I had to come and first live with you before I could die for you. I had to know how you felt to know how to love you.
Everything I do is because of my love for you. I have said that before, but I don't know that you really get it. Every time you ask "why...?" you can know that my immediate answer will be, "Because I love you." Now sometimes, that answer will seem initially strange. Typically when you ask "why" it is over something hard or unpleasant. Answering with "Because I love you" may not make sense right away. But eventually, I will show you how even in the tragedy, my love and purpose will always come through.
Why did you have to wait so long? Because I love you and did not want you to get into something too early and be destroyed by it. Why did your Grandfather die when you were so young? Because I love you I made sure that you would always remember that relationship with the idealism of a six year old girl. He is always the hero in your mind and there is a purity in that which brings more joy to you than had you had more years with him.
We could go on, and we probably will at another time, but for now know that, "Because I love you." is the only answer I will ever have for you, because everything I do is out of my love for you. Be my lighthouse again tomorrow friend. I will shine through you.

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.
