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.

Change of plans...

My prayer:

Change of plans...that seemed to be the theme of today. But, that is ok. I know that you are in charge and you will work all things to my good. I am fully convinced of your goodness and your love for me and therefore, I am in perfect peace. 

I had a couple of moments where I wanted to try to take charge to work things out the way I want them to be but heard you clearly God to let it be. 

Trusting in you and your plan. Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

I got this.

Paths vs. rice...

My prayer:

God, I have never in my life felt so many "compulsions" to do things as I do right now. I am acting on them too and they seem to be working out. I just REALLY hope they are from you. I really hope that I am not going down paths that will result in pain, hurt, devastation. 

It has really just been in the last week or so that I have begun to recognize how much of my life, my decisions are based on the fear of messing things up. Life is really good right now and has been for awhile. I don't want to mess that up. But, I also believe that you have more for me, for us, and you don't usually get more or move forward without action. 

God, if I am not on your path, if I am making a path independent of you, PLEASE make it clear to me and help me to get on your path. If I am on your path or a path that you can at least work with, I pray for peace to know I should keep on keeping on.

What God Said Tonight:

Your life is not a single path moving forward. Your life is like a pile of rice with many millions of components interacting at any given time. Your only destination is up. Your only destination is me. 

I can and do work with whatever decisions you make, whatever "paths" you take. I will guide you and lead you, I will nudge you  once in a while because I love you and because you are listening. But, truthfully, worry less about your decisions and spend more time focused on us, you and me. Every second you spend focused on our relationship will yield more than piles of "right" decisions. 

Give me your time, your attention, your thoughts, your heart, and I will give you the opportunities, the joy, the peace, the relationships, and the provision you need. You will have true shalom. nothing missing nothing lacking. That will be your life as you get your mind truly stayed on me. 

I love you daughter and I will take care of you, wherever you go and whatever you do. I promise.

My prayer:

Thanks for a wonderful day God. I had so much fun today! Start to finish, this was a great day with great people doing great stuff. How great is my God?! 

Love you God and I am sitting here tonight with only one thing missing, hearing your voice before I go to sleep...

What God Said Tonight:

I have many more days like today for you daughter. I have great joy stored up for you. I have great adventure planned for you. I have great power and anointing to pour out on you. 

Your life is only now beginning. Everything that you have done, experienced, and learned has led you to this time and place for a specified reason. My calling on your life has never been more clear and never more important. 

Keep your eyes firmly fixed on me. Keep you mind clear and ready to receive knowledge. Keep your heart whole and soft. Your kindness will heal your wounds. Your generosity will make your provision. 

Love you my daughter.

Friday, December 27, 2013


My prayer:

And the two become one flesh. You described that in the wedding description and we, the church are your bride. We forsake our mother and father for our husband, you. God. I give myself to you with everything I have and with everything I know. I am all yours and love you with an intensity I didn't know was possible. 

In your presence is FULLNESS of joy. I am full in you Christ. I am healed because of you, I am saved because of you. I am who I am because of you. 

We have got to create better words to appreciate and worship you God. "Thank you" is much too paltry. Hallelujah! That comes closer than any other word. Must be why it is the same word in every language around the world. HALLELUJAH!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Life, I breathe my life in to you. I am the way and the truth and the life and I have come to set you free from all bondage. I am your salvation and your freedom. Do not lose sight of it. Do not lose sight of the truth that is my love for you. 

You are on a path that is vital for you and so may others. Do not get distracted. Do not allow yourself to be lured into the typical, the usual, the accepted ways. Be ye transformed. Do not be conformed to this world. I have set you apart. Will you accept that designation of being set apart and holy or will you soil it with returning to the world system? 

I know your heart, it is why I chose you. But it will take constant vigilance. Keep your eyes on me, my love and your salvation. Do not lose the simple truth of the gospel. Do not lose the basic truths. Do not listen to the voices of he world that would tell you that the system as it is is fine. Everything you need has already been done. But, the truth is it was done in me, not in the systems and religions that have been birthed since. 

My truth will transcend all of the other noise in religion. I will find ways to shine my truth. Keep an eye out. Love you now and forever.

Open window for knowledge...

My prayer:

I feel so silly about worrying. You tell me over and over to not worry, to pray, and you will take care of things and you did, you always do! 

I really do love this season you have me in God. I love all that you are teaching me. I love the people you are bringing around me to learn with me. I love the freedom that is in your love for us, for me. 

I can't wait to see what is next...

What God Said Tonight:

I have much to tell you and much to teach you. I have an open window right now to get you all of the information that you will need in the next season. It will be coming at you pretty fast because time is short but I won't overload you. 

Stay alert, stay nimble, and keep up. You are going to love the experience and the results. 

You are in me and I am in you, now and forever.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

My prayer:

Happy Birthday Jesus! I hope it was wonderful. I hope you were blessed by people celebrating the day you came to be born here on earth. 

It seems we are always fighting to put aside all of the things that have become associated with Christmas that do not have anything to do with you. They have become accepted and expected and it is difficult to not get distracted by them, especially because so many of them are really fun! 

I guess, when I think about it, that is a struggle with everyday life. It is so easy to distracted with the things of this world and get our focus off of you and your new covenant relationship with us. It takes real dedication and effort to be in this world and not of this world. I know I get it wrong more often than I get it right.

But, tonight, right now, I want you to know how grateful I am to you, not just for what you have done but how you did it. It hasn't always made sense to me why you saved us the way you did but I am beginning to understand more and more that the "how" of our salvation is a beautiful reflection of your love for us. Not just that you wanted to save us from ourselves but that you did it in a way that redeemed us fully and made us one with you. You will never leave us or forsake us because we are one with you. You cannot leave yourself. 

Thank you. I am humbled by your love. 

What God Said Tonight:

I had a wonderful birthday and was blessed by so many. Every knee shall bow and every voice proclaim that I am Christ. That moment, which is not so far way anymore, will be a glorious sound and a momentous event that will never be equaled. The angels in heaven will join in. The demons will have their say but all will acknowledge the Kingship and Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Gold dust...

My prayer:

Best Christmas Eve EVER!!!!! You are so amazing! You are in us and we are in you. For the first time that seems REAL. We are one. You are the vine and we are the branch. 

We become "like Christ" not through our works but through our existence in you! Whoa!  

You came to earth to be born of a woman. We are to be  born again in the Spirit. We are one. Thank you God for the insight!!! LOVE YOU SO MUCH IT IS CRAZY!!!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Moments like this are like gold dust. They are beautiful in themselves but are more beautiful as they come together. You have a piece of gold. As you connect with other children of mine, they have bits of gold. When you come together in me you combine your wealth and make a great and valuable creation. 

I love you my sweet daughter and I have many more nuggets of gold for you. You will continue to go from glory to glory from here. I am building on a foundation that is strong, holy and true. I have tired to build this before but the time was not right. What is happening in you is real and is for now and will bring in the final harvest of my people. 

You and me, we are one, now and forever.

God's fuel...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. One of the reasons I enjoy this time together with you each evening is that it gives me a minute to reflect on the day and all of the wonderful things that you did throughout the day. Today was a day full of bad circumstances that you took care of and turned to my good. 

Don't get me wrong, I love those blessed days where everything goes perfectly. You are glorified in those days for sure. But I also love days like today where your hand on my life is so evident. No matter what life and the world threw at me today, you batted it back in its face. 

Thank you for being my Father, my protector, and my provider God. LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

No weapon formed against you will prosper. It is my promise to you as my child, my beloved. 

I can't keep you from the dark circumstances that run rampant in this world but I can keep you from being defeated and overwhelmed by them. 

I celebrate every time you trust in me. Every time when the rotten comes against you and you trust in me, that is what makes me happy. That is what makes me full. Your love and your trust fuels me. 

It is the best way to grow my presence in your life, love me, trust me and see if I don't show up, every time. Love you now and forever.

Sunday, December 22, 2013


My prayer:

I shed a lot of tears today God. Some sad, some happy, some in sympathy. I am drained but somehow lighter for the experience. Crying is not something I do a lot of usually. And, you know that there were quite a few years when I couldn't cry, even when I wanted to. 

You talk about how you save our tears. You talk of them being precious to you. I don't think I have ever really understood that. But, when I think about today and some of the tears that I shared, there was something beautiful in the tears that she shed. Both in the honesty of the pain and in the cleansing of your comfort and healing. 

Thank you God for tears that heal. Thank you for tears that express things that our words cannot. 

What God Said Tonight:

You are precious to me. Everything about you is precious to me. The hairs on your head are precious to me. How could your expressions of joy and pain be anything but precious to me. 

You don't understand how much I love you. You don't understand how deep my affection for you goes. I am enamored of you. You are the most precious creation ever. You were made our image, the most high God. You are the wonder of the universe. The angels are in awe of you.

You see yourself through the veil of sin that satan tries to trow on you. One day you will see yourself as I see you, clean, righteous and perfect. In the meantime, know that my love for you is greater, bigger, longer, and more intense than you can know.

Wrong choices...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. We have been through a lot together over the years with a lot more to come. I learn more about you every day. I learn how much more amazing you are than what I thought. And yet I know that I have only begun to scratch the surface of who you are and how amazing you are. I may never be able to wrap my mind around your greatness. But I love trying.

The hard part of life is not living with you. The hard part is not making stupid choices. I had a conversation with a friend recently who had asked for help. He needed to understand the best path forward. I did some research and explained to him that there are two ways to go that would get him what he wants. There is a third way to go but it won't get him what he wants and very well could land him in a lot of trouble. No matter how many times I explained the options, no matter how much detail I gave him of why he did not want to go the third way, all he kept talking about was going that third way.

How often do we do that with you God? How often have I done that with you. You lay out the options for me and explain why the good choices are good and why the bad choices are bad. But I get a path set in my head and think it is the only way to go. 

God I apologize for my hardheadedness and for a stubborn heart. I apologize for turning my back on your good advice and making choices that were not the best. I love you and I ask that you never stop guiding me, never stop showing me the best way to go. Help me God to hear you when I get stuck.

What God Said Tonight:

A hard head I can deal with, a hard heart is another matter. When you harden your heart toward me, that is when I can't get through. Keep your heart open to me and I will always guide you.

Remember that even when you do make the wrong choice, I am still your God, I am still in charge and I can still turn all things to your good.

We are in this together, now and forever.

Savor the moment...

My prayer:

Seated firmly in your love tonight God and there is truly no better place in the world. Nothing can separate me from you. Nothing can come between us. You won't let it and I am so grateful. 

I am yours and you are mine, forever and ever. There is no part of me that I will withhold from you. All I am, good and bad, I give to you. I give you my good as a token, a tithe, of the good that you have put in me. I give you my bad that you can redeem and transform it into good. 

I am all yours God with all humility and intense thankfulness of your acceptance of me.

What God Said Tonight:

Dance with me tonight. Sing with me. Be with me as one and celebrate. I love you and you love me and for at least this moment, you are fully aware of it. This moment is precious. 

I live for these moments of clarity with my children when  you know my love. My love is always in you, my love is always around you, but it is moments like this, when you know it, those are the moments I cherish the most. 

Stay with me awhile tonight that we can enjoy this moment. Don't rush off. This is worth savoring.

Dreams come true...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I don't know what to talk about tonight. 

I have definitely been in survival mode this week, just trying to get through. Plenty of challenges but you are leading me through them all. You are providing for all of my needs, just when I need it, cause that is the kind of amazing Father you are. 

I really am ready for this new season. I want to do something big with you God. I want to make an impact that will ripple through all eternity. I want to see people's lives dramatically changed for and by you. I can almost taste it, it is so close. 

Anyway, I should stop rambling and hear what you have to say. Your thoughts are always better than mine...

What God Said Tonight:

Dreams come true. I have put a dream and a vision in your heart to prepare you for the challenges that will come against it. I have shown you a sliver of what is possible to help you through the times when it seems impossible. I have shown you the hope in the future to get you through the struggle, the attack of today. 

I am your hope and your future. Once day, you will trust me enough to know that is true, no matter the situation and no matter what you see. For now, I will continue to give you peeks into the future. Hold onto those to hold you up on the days when there seems to be no more hope. 

I love you and we do have big plans. Many more souls will know me when we are done.

What to get Jesus for Christmas...

My prayer:

It is almost time to celebrate your birthday! Christmas sure is coming up fast this year. Is there anything in particular that you want for your birthday Jesus? Anything I can do to show my love for you?  

When I think about it, I hate when people ask me what I want for my birthday or Christmas. I guess it would be better for me to come up with something based on what I know about you. Then it is more of a "surprise" and expression of our relationship.

Hmm, I bet you would like something that demonstrates love. I bet you would like something that shows love to someone who isn't expecting it. I bet you would like something that results in someone choosing to follow you so the angels have an reason to celebrate. 

That all sounds like stuff you would like. I better get "shopping" for those opportunities. There is not a lot of time left.

What God Said Tonight:

Time is definitely running out in more way than just one. 

I love you daughter and I love that you have your heart and mind set on giving. There is such great blessings in giving. You will never be sorry or regret giving. It is always the right thing to do and it is always something that I will bless. 

Give and I will give it back to you, pressed down, shaken together and running over. It is my word, my promise and it is truth. 

Let's find some people to love on...

Tuesday, December 17, 2013


My prayer:

Sickness stinks God. I am really tired of sickness going after us. You paid for it all on the cross. You took all sickness unto you. It has not right to hit us too. 

One of the things I hate the most about sickness is that it makes it hard to think about or do anything else. It makes it hard to do anything except focus on the symptoms. 

It is hard to be kind when you are sick. It is hard to show others love when you are sick. It is hard to pray when you are sick. Sickness overshadows us. 

I come against sickness tonight God and I pray that you loose your Holy Spirit power in every situation of sickness in your people, tonight! It is by your stripes that we are healed. Amen.

What God Said Tonight:

Sickness is not of me and is not a part of my plan. I never intended for sickness to be in the world. 

I never bring sickness on you but, I am always the way to healing. I am always the key to returning to your place of protection and health in me. 

My dear, go rest. Tomorrow is coming soon. Sleep in peace.

Becoming love...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father, Amazing Savior, Holy Spirit Helper! I got to share your full grace and love with someone today and it was AWESOME!!! I mean, I think I did an ok job explaining it. She seemed to understand at least the "no guilt" aspect of it. Thank you Holy Spirit for speaking to her spirit and making my simple words mean more. 

For the first time, I think I really understand the joy of evangelism. I mean, I have shared you with a lot of people and I love seeing them grow in their relationship with you. But the basic message that you love us, period end of story, no ifs and or buts, I have not realized the pure joy of sharing that with people before. Maybe because I haven't really understood it before or known it my heart before. 

Whatever the reason, I LOVE IT! I LOVE YOU! Can't wait to tell more people!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Love. The easiest and most complicated thing in the world.

Love is patient and kind. Love does not boast. It is not self serving. You have read about love, you have known moments of love.

I am taking you into a season where you will become love. You were made in my image. I am love. You are about to discover your true identity in me, love.

It is a wonderful way to be and to live. You are going to "love" it!

Sunday, December 15, 2013


My prayer:

So many questions running through my head tonight Rabbi Jesus. I wish I spent more time actually figuring out this life and less time trying to figure it out. Although, truth is that the quest is fun too. 

Thanks for putting some really wonderful people in my life who are willing to live out this quest with me. 

God, I am hungry for more truth and deeper relationship with you. More is never enough when it comes to me and you. 

What God Said Tonight:

Blood makes the difference between me and you.  A blood covenant is not some thing to be taken lightly. You don't have blood covenants anymore so it is hard for you to understand. 

There is blood spilled for you and that makes the difference. You will never want, you will never have to live without my presence. you will never live without my love. You will never live without my complete forgiveness and redemption because of the blood spilled. 

Blood is the line that separates you from the world, from judgement, and from the need to be perfect in your works. The value and the purpose of the blood is not well understood but understand that it encompasses all that is good between us. 

It is the symbol of our love, the symbol of your redemption, and the payment for your eternal life with me. I love you daughter and my blood covenant is renewed, refreshed in you tonight as you recognize the value of it.

True revelation...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. What a difference a day makes! Thank you for rest and rejuvenation. Today was wonderful.

I love what you are teaching me right now. I love that you are allowing me to question...everything and bringing me to such pure truth. I also love that you are letting me go down every path, knowing that some will not be truth and when I go down those, you keep me safe and show me the truth through the journey anyway. 


What God Said Tonight:

True revelation, life changing revelation comes through testing, and experiencing, not through listening to someone talk. Every real thing that you have learned in your life has been as a result of an experience. 

Now, knowledge, hearing truth from someone else is important, but understanding and change comes though your experience. 

Remember that as you teach others. Remember that you can impart knowledge but you cannot give them the experience to create understanding. Only I can do that. 

I love you and will give you the experiences you need to gain the understanding that will take you to your next level, every time.

Rest and recover...

My prayer:

Surviving today was a miracle all in itself God. Thank you for all that you did today. Thank you for a Sabbath tomorrow to recover. LOVE YOU!! What is on your mind?

What God Said Tonight:

My sweet daughter. I appreciate your faithfulness and your sacrifice to come and spend time with me tonight. I value our time together more than you will ever know. I love you more than you will ever understand. Now, go rest, recover and we will talk more tomorrow. I have need of you tomorrow. Tonight, get rest I love you and I will cover you as you sleep.

The God of time...

My prayer:

Wonderful God. Thank you for so many answered prayers in so many lives this week. You showed up at the last minute in many of them but you showed up which is what matters. 

I have heard a lot of teaching on why you tend to show up at the last minute. Builds our faith, stretches our trust, makes it clear that you are the one who did it so all glory goes to you, etc. And, I guess that makes sense, but is that all of it? So often you sweep in and take care of the situation at the last second, and in Lazarus case, what seemed like too late. 

While we are freaking out, playing out all the "what ifs..." you already know when and how you are going to take care of it. I want to get to that place of trust that I know, even when it seems like you are going to be late, that you already know how and when you are going to step in and it will be perfect. I know that in my head but I need to trust it in my heart more. 

Love you God and thanks for always taking care of us.

What God Said Tonight:

Time, you worry too much about time. 

Time is relative. I can stretch time and I can rush time. I can even stop time and have, once for a whole day. Time is not something that should rule you. Time is something that I rule. And, if I am in charge of time, telling it when to go and when to stop, you can know that I will always be "on time." How can I ever be late when time is in my hands and time is under my control. It can't happen. 

That is why you can trust that I will always show up t the perfect right time. It is not luck. I pick the time, every time, and it is perfect. 

Love you daughter. Go rest.

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Step out...

My prayer:

Dear and wonderful Father. I pray and ask tonight God that you remove anything in me that is blocking what you have for me and what you want to do in me. I desire that there be no barriers between us God. I desire to have and be everything you want for me. Not only for myself but so that I can be a greater blessing to others. So I can help others to have and receive all that you have for them. 

God, we your children have lived without our inheritance for long enough. Shine a light on the hindrances. Shine a light on the things that are blocking us from you. And then, obliterate those blockages. 

In Jesus name I ask God. Amen.

What God Said Tonight:

Everything is telling you to go. Go forward, do, move step out. Everything is a green light for you right now. Do not hesitate to act. Do not hesitate to trust your instincts. They are being shaped and guided by my Spirit. 

I have brought you a very long way and we have a long way to go still. We will get to our destination. We will accomplish everything set out for us. You can trust your inner voice to know the timing. 

I have more than one "right" path for you. Only one path to me but many paths to your destiny. All are wonderful. I will walk with you whichever path you choose. But it is time to step out and move out. I will show you.

Hiding promises...

My prayer:

Faithful and reliable God. You did it again. You took a situation that was meant to harm me and turned it around to my benefit. I LOVE IT WHEN YOU DO THAT!!! I tell you I think I can hear in the spirit realm the "Neeneer neeneer neenerr!" right in the devil's face and I LOVE IT!

You are awesome. How you take care of me and all of your kids is amazing. 

Thank you for being my Father God!!

What God Said Tonight:

You are welcome my child. I take my covenant with you seriously. I take my promises to you seriously. 

You should expect to see my word and my  promises activated in every area of your life and when it isn't, you should seek out the reason why, press in to find where the promise is hiding. 

I love you now and forever.

More of God's presence...

My prayer:

Hungry for your presence tonight God. Thirsty for your Spirit. Wanting to be with you, hang out with you, listen to you. 

In your presence is fullness of joy. In your presence is healing, In your presence is all that I need. 

I need more of you though. I am not full. I am left wanting more tonight. To pray is not enough, to worship is not enough. I don't know what is enough but I need more of you. Teach me how to draw closer to you God. Show me how to seek you at a new level that I can be filled with you.

What God Said Tonight:

I am all around and I am in you. Listen and you will hear my voice. Reach out and you will touch me. Think about me and I will fill your thoughts. Search the corners of your soul and you will find not a single empty spot. You will find me. 

When you invited me into your life, into your heart, I accepted the invitation and I have not left. I will never leave unless you tell me to go. 

Rest in me. I know you are anxious and on edge, ready for the new season. It is coming. You won't miss it. You don't have to be anxious with me. I love you. I am on your side. There is nothing I want more than to be in greater and deeper relationship with you. 

Tonight, for a while, just be quiet with me. Don't pray, don't sing, don't do anything except experience me. I will show you the fullness of me.  

Saturday, December 7, 2013


My prayer:

Wonderful day God! I got to be a blessing, I got to be blessed. Now that is a win win situation! 

Tonight I find myself craving a new level of intimacy with you. I want to know you even more. I want to experience you in a way that I have never before experienced you. You are bigger and more than I can ever imagine so I know there is more of you to know than what I have known so far,

I need you God. Not for you to provide me anything, or to fix anything. I just need you. I need to feel you. I need to know you. I need to experience you more than ever before. I love you and I need you.

What God Said Tonight:

Seek me and you will find me. When you reach out to me, I will always be there. 

I have my glory raining down on you. I have my glory surrounding you. Many have begged to see the glory of God. I will reflect my glory in you and in your life. You will shine out my glory to the world. You, my lighthouse, will reflect my glory. 

Glory is not something that can be defined in words, at least not completely. glory is something that can only be experienced. Glory, my glory changes everything it touches. It will change you. 

As you experience and reflect my glory, you will know me like never before. You will understand things about me that go beyond words. We are at that place in our relationship that words are not enough. We are at the place where there are unspoken truths that are known between us. Not having words to describe it does not make it less real. In some ways it makes it more real. More powerful. 

I love you daughter, stay with me for a while tonight and let me love you. 

Friday, December 6, 2013

Glory and mercy...

My prayer:

Awesome God. To pray about anything except for the people without shelter from this bitter cold seems selfish and wrong. No matter what is going on or not going on in my life, it pales in importance compared to that. 

I pray and ask that you take care of each person without a warm home tonight, find them shelter, keep them safe, help them please God. I pray as well God for a warm up. This weather is too cold. It is too dangerous. 

Thank you God for always listening and always helping, no matter the prayer or the situation. You are my God, my Lord and everything that I need.

What God Said Tonight:

The cold has a purpose but it's purpose is nearly fulfilled. 

Everything on earth has a purpose, even those things that seem not to. I have a purpose and a plan for everything and will work everything to the good of those who love me, my children. I am God and I can use any circumstance for good. 

I have heard your prayer and my hand is on the people in need tonight. I have angels in heaven and on earth with special assignments. They will see the glory of me and the mercy of me in the acts of those around them tonight. 

I love you daughter, rest in the peace of knowing that even in this, I am in charge and will bring them through.

Thursday, December 5, 2013


My prayer:

What a great day of walking with your hand and guidance on me all day! Thanks for showing me what to say and do all day. Thanks for keeping me protected in some kind of treacherous situations. Thanks for showing me opportunities to be a blessing. And thank you for working out the timing of everything so perfectly. U = WONDERFUL!

What God Said Tonight:

I am with you always but I am glad you were so aware of it today. 

It makes it so much easier to help you when you have me tuned in during the day. When you keep you ears and your eyes open, when you keep your awareness on me, that is when I can really show you the good stuff I have for you. 

I have so many blessings stored up for you. It is a good thing that we have an eternity together. Otherwise I would not have time to give then all to you. We could have a million Christmases and birthdays together and I would still have more blessings to give. I love you.

Expectation to execution...

My prayer:

I have nothing on my mind except to hear from you tonight God. LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

It is time. Your new beginning is here. Your new season is here. 

You have been waiting and ready and I tell you it is here. You will see it for yourself soon, but trust me when I tell you it is here. You will see changes and opportunities. 

You will notice a shift from expectation to execution. You will see the change within you before you see the change in the circumstance. 

I love you and I am with you every step of the way. Now and forever my child.

The work of peace...

My prayer:

I love your peace God. It makes all the difference. With your peace, I can stand any pressure. I can keep my cool under any attack. Your peace that doesn't make sense but makes it possible to live in this world without going completely nuts. 

Thank you for your peace. Thank you for wonderful friends who pray for your peace to surround me. 

What God Said Tonight:

Peace surrounding you, peace blanketing you, peace protecting you and peace transforming you. Peace has a lot of jobs in your life and when you allow it to do its work, it will change your life. 

Peace is meant to work for you. It is meant to support you and keep you above the fray. Peace is a platform that allows you to sit above the madness and the sinful nature of man, protected and unaffected. It does not blind you from evil but it keeps you safe and at a distance from it. 

I am your peace and I am with you always.

BAD day...

My prayer:

Awesome God. You know I don't say this often but today was pretty rotten. The only positive things I can come up with is it was warm, it is over, and I get to end the day hearing your voice and spending time with you. But, everything else, ughhh and ickkkk! I ask for encouragement and a dose of your joy tonight God.

What God Said Tonight:

One day, there will be no sin, no evil in the world. One day there will be no pain and death. One day, you and I will live together and walk together with no distractions. That day isn't here yet by I promise it is coming. 

On a day like today it is more important than ever to remember your time on this earth is brief. Your life here has a purpose but your eternity with me will make up for the struggles of today. 

I love you. I am with you. I will strengthen you through the night. 

Tomorrow does not have to be like today. Tomorrow is a new day, with new mercies, and new favor. Today is over and never has to happen again. I love you, now and forever.

Sunday, December 1, 2013


My prayer:

Awesome God. I am feeling the itch. I am ready for the next big thing, whatever that is. You know me, I get easily bored and I am there. 

I am ready for the new season. I am ready to move forward. I am ready for new. One of the things about you that I love so much is that while you never change, you also always have something new for me. 

Thank you for being bigger than anything I can imagine. What's next for us?

What God Said Tonight:

Your future is full of choices. I am with you and I will help you discern the consequences of those choices. I will help you see which ones will most likely result in something that you would like. I will lead and guide you always because I am yours and you are mine, now and forever. 

But, the choices are now and always will be yours. I created you with the ability to choose. And while I know that you sometimes see that as much as a curse as it is a gift, it makes you free. It gives you the ability to shape your life. 

I know that you will always be with me and me with you. We will always partner to do great things. Which things we do together, that is up to you. 

See the possibilities, talk them over with me, and then make the choice you want. I am not your dictator, I am your Father and it is my greatest desire to see you continue to grow, mature, and be happy. I love you.

Childlike faith...

My prayer:

So many years God of seeking for approval and love. And now, I am just now realizing, that your approval and love has been there for me the whole time. Not because of anything I did or didn't do but because of who you are and what you did at the cross for me. 

All I need to do is accept it. It so simple it is hard. It doesn't fit with how I think about life, reality, you. But, it is true. I know it to the depth of my soul that it is true.
I am ready to walk in the freedom that comes with receiving your new covenant God. I am ready to fully accept all that you have provided for me. I understand that I don't earn your approval or love. I understand that you are 100% on my side no matter what. I am determined to live the rest of my life in that truth.

What God Said Tonight:

You are getting it my child. You are beginning to understand the truth of the new covenant.

Remember when I said that you should come to me like a child. I meant that in many ways. One of the ways is directly related to this. A child has not learned cause and effect. A child has not yet learned that certain behaviors result in certain things.

It takes the faith of child to believe that I paid for all of your sin. It takes the faith of a child to understand what it means to be completely forgiven so that your sins are forgotten. Watch a child, once they have misbehaved, and have been punished or gotten away with it, they move on. They don't dwell over it.

I am sending an anointing to you tonight for childlike faith. With it, you will see the truth of what I have for you.

Truth in love...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I don't have the time or energy to spend on anything that is not your truth and that is not real. I don't want to "play" at being a Christian and going through the motions that look good. I want you, I want all of you, unfettered by the trappings of religion that we have placed on you.

I pray that your truth is revealed in every situation. Where we, where I am being deceived, make it plain. Where I have been misled, show me your truth. Where I have followed a path that is not your plan, correct my path. 

I am yours, now and forever.

What God Said Tonight:

Sharing the truth in love. You have heard me say this many times. But, I want you to listen to it in a new way tonight. Share the truth in love. Truth is in love. Love is the one real truth when that love comes from me.

Your quest for truth, for purpose, for joy, for me is summarized in one constant, love. I loved you so I made it possible for you to be completely redeemed and made perfect in my sight. I loved you you before you were born. I love you.

The more you receive my love, the better you become at loving me and loving others. My love in you creates beauty, peace, healing, and joy that cannot be stopped.

It is that simple and that difficult.

Grateful heart...

My prayer:

It is pretty traditional but I can't help but be thankful to you God, today of all days. Thanksgiving is definitely one of my FAVORITE holidays. Family, friends, food, and grateful hearts. That is some really good stuff. 

Top ten things I am thankful for this year:
  1. You in my life
  2. Amazing friends and family who I get to love and who love me
  3. Your blessing and favor on my life
  4. The opportunity to give to people who need some help
  5. Your healing power and living in divine health
  6. This latest journey to better understand your grace and salvation in my life
  7. Incredible mentors in my life that believe in me and help me to improve
  8. Your call and purpose in my life
  9. Time to rest and to play
  10. My crazy but hilarious cat
I could also just list you ten times and it would be the same thing. Everything wonderful in my life is there because of you and I am so grateful! LOVE YOU.

What God Said Tonight:

Living with a grateful heart will feed your soul and bless the people around you. Living with a hard heart will steal from your soul and hurt the people around you. 

Your life, every life is a mix of blessings and cursings. It is the world you live in for now. However, you get to choose what you focus on and what increases. It is very much the same as the message that you have been hearing about focusing on your strengths. Instead of trying to fix your weaknesses all the time, you can focus on your strengths and utilizie them. When you do, you accomplish so much more. 

It is the same with a grateful heart. When you focus on the blessings, you can do more. It doesn't mean that there are not things in your life that are hard and are not how you want them. It does mean that you can see your life improve as you recognize with a grateful heart, all the blessings you have. 

I love you and I am thankful for you tonight. You are my magnificent child who is clothed in my righteousness. How could I be anything but grateful and in love with you?

Cover of peace...

My prayer:

God, you are so cool! The way you work things together is pretty amazing. 

I never cease to be astounded by you! I love when you let me see how you are working things out. I love it when you give me those behind the scene glimpses of your plan. I love being a part of what you are doing! 

Thank you, love you, in awe of you, My GOD!!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Peace. I bring you peace tonight. 

There has been so much striving in your life lately and it has been good. You are going to new levels and it is good. You are stretching and seeking me, which is good. 

But, for one day, twenty four hours, just rest in my peace. Let my peace envelop you. Let my peace guide you. 

I cover you in peace. Let the cover of my peace smother any worry. Let the cover of my peace drown out other voices. Snuggle in with me and rest.

Tuesday, November 26, 2013


My prayer:

Awesome God. I know it is not quite Thanksgiving yet but I find myself in a very thankful mood tonight. I am especially thankful tonight for the wonderful people you have put in my life. Amazing, talented, insightful, encouraging, loving, smart, and just plain wonderful people! Thank for surrounding me with your best kids God!

What God Said Tonight:

You are in a place that I have saved and determined for you. You can do great things from the place that I have put you. You can see the world changed. You can also do great harm if you choose to. 

I surround you with great people to help you be the best that you can be. I surround you with the best so you can strive for more. 

I have greatness stored in every child of mine. I placed it in them before they were born. When they partner with me it grows. Then I put you all together and wonderful things can happen. 

I love you and all of my wonderful children.

Perfect in Christ...

My prayer:

Pretty fantastic day of favor God! THANK YOU!! A new big contract, a very annoying 9 month project that was completed today, a great work out, and a good book. Nice combination of good stuff. 

I am still wrapping my head around your grace God. I have been thinking today about the fact that you don't see our sin. It is covered in Jesus sacrifice and when you look at us, you see His righteousness and forget our sin. All of it.

I have been trying to imagine what it would be like to not see our sin. Do you still see our sinful behaviors but the sin designation has been covered or do you literally not see it at all? Do you only see us as your redeemed kids, clothed in your righteousness? Just trying to understand.

Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

I see you perfected in Christ. I see what you do but I have already paid the price. 

What you do is not my focus. What you do is already taken care of through your salvation. 

Who you are matters to me. I love you.

Different, weird, unique (DWU)...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. I need some insight tonight. Why do I get so passionate and so worked up about your truth? Most of the people I know are fine with the status quo and while they enjoy learning more about you, they don't let it drive them nuts. 

For me, when I learn a new truth, I have an intense need to make sure everyone I know understands that truth and I get upset when I can't explain it right. When I see truth, I need everyone to know it. I can't rest until I do everything I can to help them understand. 

As I read that, while it is not comfortable and makes me a bit crazy, maybe it is not a bad thing? Maybe that drive to help people understand your truth is a good thing? But, I don't think the way I approached it today was good. I get so passionate that most people see it as aggressive and it is probably hard for them to hear it.

I ask God that you give me the words and help me to say them in love so more people get to hear your good news and receive the truth of your grace. That is the only way it will really impact them anyway, if your Holy Spirit speaks through me. Help me God to weed through the distractions and keep to your simple truth of grace, mercy and salvation. And if there is anything that you need to change in me to see your truth shared, please feel free to change it. Love you God.

What God Said Tonight:

There are things about you that I designed. Things that I put in you, for a purpose and with a plan. Then there are things about you that are there as a result of the struggles and the experiences of your life. Those are things that I did not necessarily put in you but I can still use them. 

Stop worrying so much about why you are the way you are and start focusing on the good I can do with who you are. I can partner with you and find the right times, the right places and the right situations to ensure that you walking in your full purpose in me. I can match up all that is in you with the needs in my kingdom. 

The needs are many,  you are willing, I can do the math can get you into the right positions. 

Don't worry quite so much about being different. I can use different. It is your uniqueness that makes you perfect for this time and this season. I love you, just as you are. I have positioned you perfectly for what we need to do. I will talk and work through you to see my truth revealed like never before. And, of course, I love you too my daughter.

Saturday, November 23, 2013


My prayer:

Love you so much!!!!! Want to hear your voice more than anything else.

What God Said Tonight:

All that glitters is not gold, but gold glitters. I am going to use the wealth of the world in these last days to do what has not been done since the beginning of time. I am going to use the wealth of the world to transform it. I am going to use the wealth of the world to reach the world. 

I own it all, Wealth is nothing special to me but I will use it as the tool and leverage to see my will done. A time of change is coming and in this new season, the power of wealth will be used for good and not for evil. 

I will not need you to fund my ministry. I will fund you to do my ministry. The world has had this concept backwards for many years and it has messed up many relationships. You are about to see what money and wealth can do, if used for the glory of my kingdom. 

Love you.

My prayer:

Crazy amount of favor, blessing, and honor today God. I hope they all know that anything I am, anything I do, anything I give that is worth anything is only because you are in me. Thank you for discernment, favor and providing me opportunities that I could not have imagined even a year ago. You are wonderful and living this life with you is amazing. I am humbled in your presence and by your generosity.

What God Said Tonight:

Think about what you did today. You loved it because the whole day was about giving to others. Your giving nature is a reflection of my heart. 

Whenever you align with  who I am and what I think is important, you are fulfilled. That is because you are made in my image. That is the reason that paying attention to the instructions in the Bible about living our life are important, Not out of obedience, I have already forgiven you of every sin you have ever committed and any sin you will commit in the future. But, when you line up your life with the things that I am all about, when you are generous, kind, caring, and full of grace, you will find contentment and joy because you are being true to who you really are. 

Doing right, for those who have accepted me into their lives, should feel good. It should not feel like a burden. If it feels like a burden, check whether you have actually let me in to your heart and then check if the thing you think is good is really of me or just what you have learned to believe is me. 

I don't mean to be confusing. The truth of it is very simple. When I am in you, you are most at peace and filled with joy when you are doing things that I would do. Know me, know my heart and find your fulfillment.

Changing your experience...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I was so frustrated all day and then you give me such WONDERFUL news to end this day. Thank you!!! If ever I needed a bit of good news, today was the day and as always, you came through for me. 

Thank you for never leaving me. Thank you for always showing up exactly when I need you with exactly what I need. I am so grateful that I never have to live, or exist one second without you. Pretty sure I would not make it.

I also need to lift up the people here and around the world who don't have homes tonight God. It is SO COLD here. Please help them find warm places to spend the night. Keep them safe. Keep them protected. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Snow and cold are interesting in that they can be a great source of joy or a source of pain and death. 

You sing songs about winter wonderlands and the joy of playing in the snow. You ski, you board, you snow mobile, laughing all through it and enjoying every minute of it. And then, that same snow, that same storm can steal someone's life. 

That is really how most things in life are. They can bring you joy and life or they can bring you pain and death. What you get is partially a result of what you focus on, how you choose to see it. But what you get is sometimes related to your situation. And sometimes that situation is completely out of your control.  

When I tell you I will turn everything toward your good, that is a big part of what I am talking about. I will turn you from the negative experience of a thing and toward a positive experience of the thing. I will exchange the pain and death experience for a joy and life experience. The circumstance usually doesn't change but your experience of it does. 

Love you my child and I am always on your side.

God's glory is coming...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. What a mixed bag of good and bad today was. I am tired physically, emotionally and spiritually from this day. The one thing that will recharge me and make it all worthwhile is to hear your voice. You are always the best part of my day God. LOVE YOU!!

What God Said Tonight:

My glory is about to rain down on your life. You have experienced my favor. You have experienced my mercy and my grace. Get ready for my glory. 

Glory is not something that can be explained well. It is beyond words. It is beyond the ability to describe. It can only be experienced, using every physical emotional and spiritual sense that you have. 

Part of the reason your day drained you so, is the enemy trying to dull your senses, hoping you do not experience my glory. 

But you are my child. He forgets that you hear my voice and that you would not be able to miss my glory, even if you tried. I will recognize you in my glory and you will recognize me. We know each other and that cannot be taken away. 

I love you child. Rest up for my glory is coming.

Marriage and divorce...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I am kind of down tonight. 

More reports of wonderful friends after decades of marriage who are getting divorced. I know you hate divorce God. I think it is because it hurts the people involved so much. The people involved in these situations believe they have no other choice. I don't know what to tell them but I do know one thing I can do and that is put it all in your hands. I can't fix it but you can. 

God, I lift up marriages that are in trouble tonight and ask for your miraculous intervention. You tell us God, and we even use it in a lot of our marriage ceremonies, that what you have put together, let no man put asunder. I pray for your healing power in every hurting marriage tonight. I pray that you fill them with your love and remind them how to love each other. I pray that you take all of the impossible situations and make it possible. 

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Marriage works when you build the relationship on me. It works when everything is in it's right place. I designed you to live in relationship and I designed wives and husbands to work together in some pretty specific ways. I did all of that because I knew that it was not good for man to be alone. 

The design was good. The design is good. The trouble is other people make decisions that can and do directly effect you.

I love you and I can heal and restore your marriage. Just relax and let me in to move things into right position. Trust. When you see your spouse changing and doing things differently, trust that I am doing something in him as we speak. I have many blessings coming your way. It will be important to sort out the marriage and living situations before we move out.

It matters...

My prayer:

Thank you for an easy day today God. I have not had one of those in awhile and it was a nice break. 

I don't really have much to talk about tonight. Grateful, as always, that I get to spend quiet time with you at the end of the day. Can't imagine ending the day without spending time listening to your voice. Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

Your day seemed easy because you followed my lead in prayer this morning. 

There was a lot happening in the spiritual realm today. I know that you were not aware and that is because I had you take care of your part early this morning. Those prayers of protection lasted through the day and provided the line of defense needed to win the battle. 

You don't always know how significant your actions are. When I ask you to do something, there is always an important reason, even though you don't always see what that reason is. I am a God of purpose, all powerful, all knowing and I will never waste your time on things that don't matter. 

So, remember to respond, every time I ask you to do something, no matter how small. It matters. You matter. Love you.

Uncomfortable understanding....

My prayer:

Awesome God, I an grateful for what you are teaching me right now. I am grateful for the new level of understanding of what the Good News really is, what your grace really is, what your salvation really is. To understand that you literally paid for every sin that ever was, ever is or ever will be committed. That once we choose you, we are forgiven, end of story. That we don't ever have to feel guilt, ask again for forgiveness, or work to make our lives right. That all we have to do is to seek you and receive you. 

Everything we ever will need is in you, including any changes that we need. Not that I need to make better choices or I need to work on a step program to get free. No. Those things don't work long term. What changes me is my time with you. In your presence, I get new desires, I get new wisdom, I get new peace, all of which makes me a better (still flawed but better person).

I always had a hard time of understanding why you would ask us to do things that we could not do. To be like Christ, to pray without ceasing, to love you with everything we are and love our neighbors as ourselves all of these things that we try to do, we want to do, but I have never met anyone who could do them consistently. Not if you really get to know the person. I think the answer is in this new understanding you are giving me of your grace and your love. I don't have the answer yet but I feel like I am right on the edge.  

This new understanding is also making me really reassess most everything I have been taught my entire life about you and how to live this life for you. Now that is scary. That is what has me feeling unsure and off center tonight God. What does this mean? What do I do with it?

I pray for your continued help, guidance, understanding, and teaching. Thank you God for always teaching and taking me to the next level.

What God Said Tonight:

You didn't have to do anything to learn this new information except say yes to me and follow my direction. You will not have to do anything more than that for the rest of your life. I will always lead you and guide you.

There are times in your life where it was important for you to understand things at a certain level. That was the level you needed for the things that were in your life at the time. There are things coming that require a new level of knowledge and understanding and I am taking you there to prepare you for those times.

Change is never comfortable but you do not need to be afraid. You do not need to fear what is coming next. I will always take care of you and I will always keep you. I will always make sure you have all that you need.

Don't force it. I know you want this uncomfortable feeling to go away and you want to do whatever you can to speed that up. But that would be the wrong move. Don't force the solutions to this. Rest and trust in me to guide you through.

Saturday, November 16, 2013

All that I need...

My prayer:

God I crave your presence. I crave the intimacy with you that transforms me and my life. I crave time with you. 

Being in your presence is what makes life worthwhile, what transforms me and what fuels me. No matter how I get there, whether in worship, whether in prayer, whether in quiet reflection, whether in the middle of an intense run, in a service, in the middle of the chaos that is life. No matter how I get there, here, with you, the end result is miraculous and addicting. 


What God Said Tonight:

Come here and find your rest. Find your rest in me. Find your joy in me. Find your peace in me. Find your life in me. I have within me all that you need and it is all yours. 

I will not be stingy. I will not withhold from you. I will bless you to overflow. I will love you forever. I will see you healed and saved as a result of all I did at the cross. 

I know things feel like they are spiraling out of control but that is just because a change in regime is coming. The king of he underground who has been sitting at the headgates of earth for years is right now watching us. He is making his last ditch efforts to confuse the world and keep you from living eternity with me. 

But, even now, even in this time, I have all you need. Lean on me, receive my love and know that I am God and I am on your side, always. 

Friday, November 15, 2013

Follow God...

My prayer:

We made it!!! Craziest week ever, so much to do that had to be done, no way in the world it could all get comes my God, the God of the impossible, and here we are, Friday night and EVERYTHING that needed to get done is done. Thank you for ALWAYS taking care of me and the people and the things I care about. Thank you for taking care of mom today God. Thank you for healing her. Your healing power never ceases to amaze me.

What God Said Tonight:

I have a plan and purpose on your life. Never forget that. 

I love you, no matter what, but I chose you for a purpose. I chose you for a distinct plan. I need you to follow my will and my direction to accomplish my will and the purpose I have for you. Don't follow my direction because you feel you have to. Follow my direction if you want to. I only take on willing help. 

But, if you do, if you follow my will and purpose for your life I can promise you satisfaction as you have never known. I can promise success beyond your wildest dreams. I can promise you fulfillment that will never cease. I can promise you that we will do it all together. 

Come, follow me, if you want...

It was worth it...

My prayer:

My  God, your an awesome God you reign, from heaven above, with wisdom, power and love, my God your an awesome God! You do the miraculous every day in my life and I am SO GRATEFUL!!! I live a blessed, favored and miraculous life because of you. Not perfect, you know me, I always want more of you, but SO GOOD! Thank you Jesus!!

What God Said Tonight:

I do know you my sweet daughter. I knew you from before you were born. I created you specifically for this time and this place, knowing all that you would struggle with and knowing the beauty that would come of your victory. 

It was worth it. You may not see that fully now, but one day, when you see the lives that were blessed through your testimony and from your life, you will know it was worth it. 

That is something I hope to show everyone of my children some day. There will be a day when they each get to see the lives they blessed. There will be crowds and crowds of people. You do not understand your influence. You do not understand how one kind act of love can ripple out to effect so many. Thousands, millions, billions and more. 

You reach is infinite in me. Your power is immeasurable in me. I love you so much. Be encouraged tonight that all that you go through, the good the bad and the ugly is blessing others in your victory. Spread the word.

Strength in numbers...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I am sitting here tonight completely exhausted but so grateful for all that you are doing. I am especially grateful for the people that you bring into my life. Such amazing, talented, and courageous people! Different cultures, different likes and dislikes, different languages, different goals, but all people, your people trying to live this life the best we know how. 

I lived so many years not recognizing the value of community. I get it know God and it is wonderful! The best part of all is when we gather our community around you, when you are the center and the purpose for our community. That is when things get really beautiful and interesting. LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

There is nothing in the world that is stronger standing alone vs. standing in company. A tree standing alone can be blown over by a wind. But put many trees together and they will hold each other up in the strongest winds. 

You are stronger when you have people around you. You can withstand a bigger storm without falling because of those around you. And, that community, that support, is never one sided. As much as you get from them, they get the same from you. A true relationship gives as much or more than it gets. That is where the strength comes in. 

Be strong in your life through me and your friends. With that combination, you can get through ANYTHING. Love you!!

River of God...

My prayer:

God of peace. I pray and ask for your peace tonight. SO much to do, so many commitments, so many opportunities, so many challenges, SO MUCH! It is wonderful and overwhelming right now.

I ask for your help to get it all done. I pray for your wisdom as to what to say no to. I pray for your strength to do what needs to be done. And I pray that your love continue to shine through me even though I am running like crazy. Help me to remember to love through it all. 


What God Said Tonight:

I am with you and on your side always. 

This is a season but it is only temporary. You will get through this and you will have a testimony to share. You know it is true, we have been here before. 

Breathe deep, listen to my voice, and keep my peace in your heart. You are on a path to an amazing destination and I will see that you arrive on time, fully prepared with all things completed that need to be done. 

Relax into my current for your life. We are in the rapids right now. We will come through it unscathed and meet the lazy river before you know it. 

Love you so much. I will not let you down, ever.

The enemy's path...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. I spent so much of today trying to drown out the enemy's voice, I can't wait to just concentrate on your voice tonight. He is so annoying and deceptive. Sometimes he leads me down a path of thought before I even realize it is him. Then, all of a sudden I look around and wonder how I got there!

I am ready for the day when you send him to the lake of fire, never to return. I am truly sick and tired of him. 

Uggh! Enough about him. Let's talk about you. Let's talk about your day and your challenges. Let's talk about your victory. Let's talk about all of the good things in life, and after, that I get to be a part of because I belong to you. 

Father, drown out the voice of the enemy and speak your sweet voice in my heart tonight.

What God Said Tonight:

I can drown out the voice of he enemy with a whisper. One whisper from me is more powerful than the loudest shriek from him. 

But you have a part in it. You choose what you listen to and what you hear. I know that he will try to deceive you. I know he will try to take you down path of destruction and he may even succeed sometimes; but, at that moment when you look around and realize where you are, call out to me and I will always come to get you. I will always rescue you. You never need to be afraid because I am always your way out of any situation. 

I will rescue you and I will love you. I will heal you and I will restore you. I will always bring you home, the second you ask me to. Every time.

Crisis of confidence...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. I am having a crisis of confidence tonight. You know that is not often a big problem for me but the last week or so, maybe a bit less, I have just felt off. 

I have been here before and it almost always means you are taking me to a new level, that I am growing. And, as uncomfortable as growth and change is, I am never sorry by the time it is done. I am always grateful for what you have done to change me, mature me. 

But this part, the part where I am not sure what is going on, how I am supposed to react, what I am supposed to do, this part is scary. I am trying to change how I think about it. I am trying to recognize it as an exciting opportunity and that works for short periods of time. But then, something happens or nothing happens and I am not sure what to do. Then I am right back to feeling lost and unsure.

I don't like it but maybe that is the only way to really grow?

I ask for your help God to take me through this, teach me, grow me, and get me to the other side in one piece. God I pray for your mercy for when I get it wrong. 

What God Said Tonight:

Who makes you succeed? Who positions you for greatness? Who has a plan for your life and the plan is good? That is all me. I will see you victorious in all that you do. 

Yes, this is a time of growth because I need you to have more of me in you for this next stage. I need you to walk in a level of authority in me that you have not experienced yet. So, I will stretch you a bit. it may not be comfortable but you know I won't stretch you so much that I break you. You know that I will take care of you in the middle of this. 

This is one of those times that I need you to put one foot in front of the other, trust me, walk through my open doors, turn from my closed doors and do your best. It will be plenty good enough because I am in you and I have already planned this all out. My plans never fail. 

I love you daughter. That will need to be enough for you, for your confidence, for now. You are worth it because you are mine.
