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.

Pain and suffering...

My Prayer:
My God.  My interest is you tonight.  I come with no agenda, just curious as to what is on your mind.  Thank you for another great day with great opportunities.  I love you God.  Speak to me?

What God Said Tonight:
I hear the cries of my people throughout the world.  I understand that this life is hard, painful and it seems like the suffering is more than you can take at times.  I would love to wipe away the terror.  I would love to wash away the pain.  I see you covered in dirt, in blood and I know your fear. 

I don't know that I can ever explain how it got to this point.  I have told you about the original sin that invited sin into this world and into your life.  You have heard it so many times, it has become just a story.  There was something more significant in that moment though that you do not yet understand. 

There is a grave responsibility that comes with knowledge.  As an adult, you gain knowledge you did not have as a child and with that knowledge comes responsibility.  The sin of eating of the tree of knowledge came with responsibility.  It was a responsibility that I never wanted you to have  It is a responsibility that requires that your actions have a cost.  Your sin has to be paid for.  For those who have received me, that sin is covered by my sacrifice.  So many have not received that redemption though and as a result, the wages of sin, death, run rampant in this world.  Destruction appears to rule at times. 

You won't be able to understand it yet, someday you will. Someday, there will be no more war and no more pain. Someday there will be no more suffering.  In that day, when we win, we will live in great peace and joy.  We will live as I always intended.  We will live in the light and the joy that I had planned in the beginning. 

In the meantime, live under my covering.  Let me protect you from harm, let me heal you from the pain, let me clean you from your sin. You live in this world but you are not of this world.  You are of me and my kingdom.  You belong to me.  You do not belong to the filth that surrounds you at times.  You are mine, now and forever.  I love you daughter.  Let me take care of you.
