Lord you are worthy of all praise. You are the purpose and meaning of my life. You are what I get up for each morning and you are my last thought before I go to bed.
God, I had no idea that a relationship with you could be this good, this powerful, this meaningful. I just had no idea. When we started this journey, when I decided I would live my life for you, I had no idea what I was getting into.
I thought I would just go to church every Sunday and that would be that. I had no idea that you would eventually be integrated into every aspect of my life. I had no idea that I would truly hunger for moments of being close to you. I had no idea that it wasn't just about Sunday, it was about living every moment in your presence. I had no idea it would be so fantastic!
I think of the years I wasted doing my own thing and running away from you and I am filled with regret. If only...Well, at least we have each other now. At least I get to know what it is like to love and be loved by the Most High God, creator of the universe now.
Thank you God for loving me and letting me get to know you. Thank you for allowing me to have a relationship with you. Thank you God for today.
What God Said Tonight:
Walking through life with you is pure joy for me daughter. I love to spend our days and our nights together. I love that you don't keep me isolated, that you let me into all of your life. I hate it when people try to lock me away in a church building. I am God. Do you really think you can fit me into a building made by man's hands?
I want you, all of you. I want to bless you in every area of your life. I want to know you in every situation and I want you to always have me to lean on. I can't be there for you when you lock me out. The only thing that can keep me from blessing you is you.
Let me in and I will help you. I love you so much. Stay in my presence always that I can bless you abundantly. I only want to bless you and love you. I only want good things for you.
I am your Father and I am so proud of you. I want to cheer you on and I want to help you navigate the rough patches. I want to be your ever present help. Let me in so I can be.
If there is an area of your life that you can't think about me at the same time as you think about it, that is a danger zone. That is an area you have locked me out of. Let me into that area and I will help you. I will guide you but let me in.
I love you and I will not condemn you but I can't help you if you don't let me in. Let me wrap my arms around you tonight and rest in my embrace. My love for you is boundless. Sleep sweetly.

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.
