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.

Open your eyes...

My prayer:
God, my awesome God.  The love that I can't get enough of.  The joy and peace in my life.  God you are truly my everything.  God, I am so in love with you.  I am shocked by it.  I am shocked by the love that I have for you. 

I am willing to do anything for you God.  I don't say that lightly.  I have thought it through and truly anything you want, I am willing to do.  I am so thoroughly convinced that you have my best interest at heart and that you love me that I am completely willing to be obedient to any and every thing that you have for me. 

God, my God and Lord and Teacher and Saviour and so much more, I am all yours. But, tonight, I could use a hug.  I could use a couple of arms around me telling me that everything is going to work out, that they love me and that they are on my side. God, I love it when you tell me those things and when you make me feel them.  It just comes down to that old saying, sometimes I need Jesus with skin on.  I wish I didn't.  I wish that you, just you, were enough.  That would make life a whole lot easier.  I can trust you.  I don't have to worry about whether or not you truly love me.  I don't have to worry about whether you are telling the truth.  Those are all things that I have to wonder about when it comes to people. 

Life would be a lot easier if your love was all that I needed.  I pray God that you either make that be enough or you show me where I can get the love with skin on.  Either way,  right now, I am feeling the lack and I don't want to.  I want to be completely satisfied with you.  You are the God of more than enough.  That should be enough for me.  God I love you so much.  Help me with this empty spot please.

What God Said Tonight:
At what point did you I say that life should be easy?  When did I give you that  impression? Life is not designed to be easy. 

You are surrounded by love.  You are surrounded by people who love you so much.  You are just not seeing it tonight.  You are so caught up in what you don't have that what you do have is staring you in the face and you can't see it.  Your life is and will continue to be filled with love.  Love from me and love from the people around you. 

You have to open your eyes.  You have to see what is so clearly all around you.  You are missing what I have already provided. I can't bring you more until you recognize what you already have. 

Think just for a minute. How many times did people say "I love you" to you, just today? More that just a couple.  People don't say that  for no reason.  You have the love that you seek, just open your eyes.  You will be amazed a the love around you, even right now if you just open your eyes. 

Open your eyes and see the love I have surrounded you with.  Receive that love and be filled up.  I love you more than you will ever know.  I could tell you every minute of every day for eternity and still not reflect the love that I have for you.  You are the reason I am here and the reason that I stay.  Rest in the cushion of love around you.  It will cradle you and strengthen you.  It will let you rise to that next level, if you just open your eyes.

I love my Lord, He is number one in my life and every prayer you have posted here seems to fit the exact way I pray. God Bless You so much. Thank you for sharing...
