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.

My prayer:

My Father, my savior, my God. I say "I love you" to you all the time and maybe so much that it loses its impact or meaning. Can I take just a minute tonight to really focus on how I love you? 

There are so many things that I love about you that it is difficult to count them all. One of the big ones is your constant faithfulness. I love that I can ALWAYS count on you. That you will ALWAYS love me. That you are ALWAYS there for me. And you ALWAYS will be. You are the God of ALWAYS and I LOVE that!

In this life where there are not a lot of things I can count on, I love that I can always count on you!

What God Said Tonight:

I don't know how to be less than always. I was there in the beginning and I will be there past the end. I am the alpha and the omega, the beginning in the end. I always was and always will be. It is who I am. You can count on it because it is my nature. 

I will never let you go, my love, my child. I will see you through eternity. Go and rest for tomorrow has some new challenges and surprises for you.

My prayer:

More snow, more cold, more trapped. God, I know I am being melodramatic but it is how I feel. I have this overwhelming desire to just go, somewhere, anywhere but GO. It's all part of the same thing we talked about last night. And, I did listen. I understand there is a purpose in this and that I am prepared for the next season. What do I do right now? How do I keep from flying out of my skin?  

Listen to me. There are so many worse things happening in this world. So many greater needs. I probably just need to get my focus off of me. I am kind of sick of me right now. 

Thank you God for your patience, love, kindness, grace and mercy. I need every bit that you can give me.

What God Said Tonight:

How can you be trapped when you are free in me? Your prison is in your imagination. It is not real. 

You are the child of the most high God and here are no limits on what you can do in my power. There are no limits on where you can go in my power. There is only freedom, joy and peace. 

I am in you and you are in me and together we can do all things. It is true and I am about to show you how true it is. 

Remember, always, your freedom is in me. It is the only true freedom that there is. All other freedom is as much an illusion as our imagined jail. I love you. Be free with me.

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am uncomfortable. Physically, emotionally, spiritually uncomfortable. Now, usually that means that change is right around the corner which is good. I am ready for change that relieves this pressure. I feel like everything is just kind of boiling under the surface ready to boil over but not quite busting out yet. 

I ask God that your perfect will be done in my life in your perfect timing. I ask that in this "almost" time, you give me the peace to make it through.

Thank you Jesus!

What God Said Tonight:

I have you prepared, placed, and primed for the next season. That is what you feel. Just like you sometimes can feel that this world is not your final destination and you want to move on to the eternal life with me, sometimes you become aware that you have been made for, prepared for, something more that is not quite here yet. But, I promise it is on it's way. 

I had to prepare you ahead of time because when the time is here, it will all happen so fast you will need to be all ready, ready. 

Have peace in the knowledge that everything is for a reason. The preparation, the waiting, the feeling is all for a reason and it will bear fruit, it will matter. I love you child. Go and rest for tomorrow has its own challenges.

Tuesday, January 28, 2014


My prayer:

I would much rather listen than talk tonight God. What is on your mind? LOVE YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

I have a few things to share tonight. I thank you for taking time to listen. I can sometimes get lost in the noise of life. Your life is so full of noise. So many voices that compete for your attention. I am grateful for times when you consciously quiet the noise just to listen. 

I have a plan I am working on right now. A plan for you life that is good. A plan for your group, your circle, that is good. A plan for the world that is good. All of these plans are intertwined. What I want to do in your life is connected to what I want to do in your circles, which is connected to what I want to do in the world. 

I wish you could see how connected everything and everyone is in the world. Even across time. It is all connected. You are all connected. There is no action or inaction that does not effect, eventually, the whole world. I know you have heard the saying about the butterfly in Japan flapping it's wings and there is more truth to that saying than you know. 

It is that inter-relatedness that makes your everyday life so important. It is that interdependence that makes every decision you make matter. So often you are told how insignificant you are in the grander scheme of things but I am here to tell you that you are significant. You are the child of he most High God and your role in this world, throughout eternity, matters. 

I love you and you are right where I need you to be for the plans that I have made.

Roots and fruit...

My prayer:

Thank you God for a wonderful day. Thank you for getting me to work and home safely on the snowy roads. Thank you for a day at work where I got to do the stuff I love. Thank you for the good news about the future. Thank you for divine health. Thank you for a warm house to sleep in. Thank you for peace, joy, and grace. Thank you most of all for being you and for loving me!

What God Said Tonight:

The fruit of any life, of any situation, of any decision will show the root from where it came. That is true of trees and it is true of people. When I look at your life, I can see your root, your motivations from what you are producing. 

You know that when your life is full with blessings and joy, love and peace, you know that your root, your intention, is to bless, love, bring joy and peace. When your life is full of deceit and discouragement, you know that your root, your motivation, is to bring lies and discouragement. Change the root and you will change your fruit. 

Know that either way, I still love you. Know that out of that love, I will help you if you ask. 

Your fruit is not important in itself but it is very helpful to know the root. Root yourself in me and you will always have good fruit. I am the root of all good. satan is the root of all evil. Root yourself in good.

Different lives...

My prayer:

Awesome God. You know that I love and appreciate the life you have given me. But sometimes, I wonder what if I made different choices. What if I took some different paths. Would I be happier if I had gone ahead and made some more traditional choices? 

I have always been proud of making my own way in life and making choices that seemed best at the time, not necessarily what people expected of me. But sometimes I wonder if I missed out on some things. 

Most of the time the knowledge that I only have one life to live is a relief. I mean this one is tough enough! I don't want to have to go through it more than once. But then sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live out different choices and different lives. I am sure that there are positives and negatives to everyone's life. I don't know, just wondering.

What God Said Tonight:

I have given you but one life to live and you should live it to the best of your ability, making the best choices you know how to make. What I also expect and plan for you to do is to be in relationship with other people to know and discover what other paths, other decisions might be like. 

Sometimes those relationships will help you to make different decisions and sometimes they will show you that you don't ever need to make a decision that results in that life. But they are always going to help you and show you different ways to live. 

Relationships allow you to experience life from many different viewpoints. Remember to learn what life looks like through your friends eyes and you will experience more of what life has to give you. Love you daughter.

God's work...

My prayer:

Well, today didn't quite turn out the way I thought it was going to. Definitely had some bumps in the road (literally and figuratively). But, I feel like such a whiny wimp when I even think about complaining about anything in my life. 

Truth is, my life is pretty amazing and wonderful. Especially when I look at what other people are dealing with right now. So many people that I know are in really desperate situations. Situations that if you don't show up and change things, they likely will not survive. There are so many of those desperate situations right now, I am not even sure how to pray for all of them.

Fact is God, we need you, now, to show up and rescue your people. And that is really it.

What God Said Tonight:

I am here and I am working in each of the situations even right now. My work is not always obvious. I don't always part the Red Sea to make things right. 

Sometimes, I give people a new idea. Sometimes, I ask another one of my kids to help out. Sometimes I know it is only a matter of time for the situation to work itself out. And then sometimes, I do part the Red Sea and do a crazy miracle, just to show that I still can. 

I will work on your behalf, always, to make sure all things wok toward your good. I will guide you always. I will love you always. These are some of the promises from me to you, my children.

Pressure and peace...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. We made it to another Friday night. Friday nights are one of my favorite nights of the week. The work of the week is done. I know I get to rest tomorrow. I get to go to church tomorrow night. 

The pressure is off for at least the next 24 hours. Whew! Just relaxing with you tonight God. Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

Peace I give to you my daughter. I am your peace. I am your comfort. I am the one who gives you rest. 

My peace can withstand any pressure. My peace can survive in the worst of storms. I have peace that dominates the atmosphere. Wrap yourself in my peace at all times and be comforted and confident. 

Love you too!

Thursday, January 23, 2014


My prayer:

Awesome God. I have been bothered by something lately and I am not sure what to think about it. So, as usual, I want to talk to you about it. 

I have begun to notice how we as Christians and even Christian Pastors spend so much time trying to encourage other Christians to have faith when they don't see your promises in their lives. There are so many messages to encourage people, "You may not have seen your healing yet, but have faith, it is on it's way! Just confess it, pray more, give a sacrifice/offering, etc."

On the one hand, I get it. We do need to encourage each other and help each other to hang on and have faith. But on the other hand, shouldn't we be spending just as much time celebrating your grace, mercy and miracles in our lives that we do see? And, when we don't see that happening in our lives, isn't that an indication that something is REALLY wrong?

It just does not seem right to me. But maybe I am not understanding? What do you think God?

What God Said Tonight:

I think that you are not seeing the whole picture but you are seeing the portion of it that stands out as inconsistent, which is good. I think that you are earnestly seeking a life with me that includes every promise I have for you which is very good. I think that if you, in the light of the insight that you see around you, find ways to celebrate my promises in your life and find ways to increase your experience of those promises, that is really, very good. 

I desire that you live under the open heaven, with blessings pouring out over your life. I desire a relationship of complete intimacy with you. I desire that you never want for a single thing. I will see you there, in that place of nothing missing and nothing lacking; but, it will take a series of paradigm shifts from what you have known. It will take paying attention to these insights, while understanding they are all pieces of the overall picture. 

I love you daughter. Keep seeking, keep thinking and keep learning.

Wednesday, January 22, 2014


My prayer:

I don't need to talk except to say I love you God. What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

Each choice that you make has consequences. But "consequences" has taken on a negative connotation. I don't mean that each choice will result in reward or punishment. There is too much focus on reward and punishment these days. I mean that each choice will result in separate and unique reactions and events that will drive  the future, your future and those around you. 

Choices are important. But less important when you are living in me and me in you. When we are one, while your choices continue to have reactions, I can use the choice and the reaction to your good. 

I want you to know that it is ok to take a few more chances than you do. I will cover you. I want you to understand that I will not leave you. I want you to understand that we are in this life together as one and will remain that way through eternity. 

Choose me first and everything else will work out. Love you my daughter. I choose you.

Tuesday, January 21, 2014


My prayer:

Awesome God. You know that there are a million things that I appreciate about you. You are so loving I can't even wrap my head around it. You are so generous, in every way. You are so kind. You are so wise. You are so faithful...and so much more.

One of the things that I appreciate so much is how, when I am going through something, you always bring someone to me who is going through the same thing. That is such a HUGE comfort. 

Thank you for connecting me with just the right person to talk through stuff today. We did not solve anything but I feel a lot better knowing I am not the only one feeling this way. Your loving care for me is tremendous!

What God Said Tonight:

I am here for you always but I know sometimes it helps to talk it through with someone you can see. 

It is part of that relational thing. I have created you to be in relationship. Therefore, when you are going through something, you want to relate to someone who knows how you feel. 

The truth is, at any given moment, there are a lot of people around you going through the same things as you. My children who love me and seek me, face a lot of the same challenges living in a world that is not quite home yet. 

The more you reach out, the more you will find those people. Know that when you do, it helps them as much as it helps you. Do not shy away from relationships. They were made for you.

Wait well...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. Thanks for all the rest this long weekend. Apparently I needed it! But, is it time? Are we ready for the next big thing? I hope so. I am definitely on the downside hill of boredom. I want to see what you have next. Your stuff is always so fantastic!!

What God Said Tonight:

I am always ready.  But it is not quite time. Trust me that this will be like so many other times of waiting in your life. While you are waiting it feels like forever but once you are done waiting, it doesn't seem like it was so bad. 

I have some things that I am getting into place. They are essential for the next season. I have you where I need you. I have almost everything else in place where I need it. Just a little more patience. 

Use this time to do the things you never have time to do. Connect with people that you don't have enough time to connect with. Develop new ideas, go to new places. This can be a time of great growth and fun when you are not so worried about what is coming next. 

I love you daughter. You are not missing out on anything. It is all still on its way in my timing. Wait well.

Fix me...

My prayer:

Fix me God. Not for my sake but so that I don't miss the opportunity that you have for me that could bless so many millions of people. You know my weaknesses and I can absolutely see how they could keep me from the "promise land" that you have been showing me. But, I don't know what to do about it. So, please fix me if I need to be fixed. I don't want to miss what you have for me. 

What God Said Tonight:

The "fix" is already accomplished through my sacrifice for you. 

Your weaknesses are only opportunities for me to be strong in you. Your faults are only opportunities for me to heal and prepare you to heal others. 

I never ask you to be perfect. You are already perfect in me. I never ask you to fix yourself. Your fix is in me. I never asked you to deal with your issues so I can use you. I can use your issues as easy as I can use your strengths. 

Stop worrying, please, Just let me love you. I really will take care of the rest.

Diamond vision...

My prayer:

Good stuff God! What a fantastic night! Love what you are doing, love what you are building, LOVE YOU! 

I know there are challenges, hurdles and struggles we will go through but at least for tonight, I can see how it is all worth it...SO worth it! 

Thank you God for letting me be a part of your plan.

What God Said Tonight:

My vision, my plans are like a crystal or a diamond. I have a core to the plan but how we get there and what we do with it is not fully determined until you choose. 

There are many options and they are all beautiful and they will all accomplish the core purpose. I get delight out of seeing what you choose and how you choose to take us there. That is fun for me. 

This is a journey that we walk together.

Friday, January 17, 2014


My prayer:


What God Said Tonight:

You know I love a grateful heart my child. 

I love you. 

Rest in the peace that is mine tonight. Rest in the complete assurance that you are mine and I am yours. Rest in the confident knowledge that all of my plans for you are good. Be assured that your days, your purpose, your future has only just begun and the best truly is yet to come. 

Good night my child.

Thursday, January 16, 2014

The future is good...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I need you and your power manifested in so many areas of my life right now. And, they are all rather urgent. If you don't make these things happen, they are not going to happen. If they don't happen, I need a new plan and new direction. 

Thank you for healing, thank you for direction, thank you for provision and thank you for favor! You are amazing and I love you so much!!!

What God Said Tonight:

I am here and working on your behalf. I did not fall asleep. I did not look away. I am on the job and I will not let you down. 

I am in you and you are in me and we will see the future together. I see the future and I know that it is good. You can see me and know that I am good. 

Love you and rest in the complete assurance that I am working on your behalf, even right now.

The judge...

My prayer:

Wonderful God. I know we are not supposed to judge people and I really try hard to stay out of that role. But, I have to admit, sometimes, like today, when I find out that someone I know and trust is not the person I thought they were, or at least did not behave in a way that I thought they could (or at a minimum in a way I hoped they wouldn't), it is just hard. It is hard when people disappoint me. I don't expect anyone to be perfect but I had hoped for better from this person. 

Wow, as I am writing this I realize just how judgmental it is! Who am I to decide that someone else went too far over the line? Would I want someone else to do the same to me, NO. 

I guess it really doesn't matter. We are human and flawed. You covered us with your sacrifice. Anything we do or don't do is between you and us, not between us and us. 

Thank you for shining the light on my attitude. I will try to be more careful.

What God Said Tonight:

I did not come to condemn the world but to save it. I am not interested in pointing out errors, I am interested in restoring wholeness. I am the judge, but I have given a pardon through my son so that you, each of you, can know my love, know me and live the life I intended for you. Not the life of payment. 

I am guiding and directing you because you invited me into your life to do so. Not as a taskmaster and not as a judge. I have the authority and power to be both but I choose to be your friend.  

I ask that you have that same grace for those you love.

Painted brick houses...

My prayer:

Life is good, you are great and I am ready to hear your voice...

What God Said Tonight:

Little brick houses of different bright colors, lined up along the road. In each, there is a family, a person, who has hopes, dreams, fears, and joy. Each one has a family that is trying to find their way through this life. Each one of them has a way of knowing and getting to know me. 

I don't see any theological requirements in that picture. I don't see any limitations in that picture. I only see people.

Every celebration will turn into a new mission, a new season. Every challenge will provide knowledge and understanding for the next challenge. Life can be really exciting if you see what is happening in the spiritual realm. 

Monday, January 13, 2014

End times...

My prayer:

One look at today's (or any day's) headline news stories and I have no doubt that we are in the end days that you described God. I guess I just didn't really realize that I would be living through them. Kids getting shot in schools, police shootouts shutting down highways, people being held hostage in a convenience store, and people walking up and hitting strangers hard enough to knock them out and kill them...for no reason. And that is just my neighborhood. Start looking globally and the story gets even more complicated. 

Sometimes when I get to thinking about it I become afraid, other times I get angry, and sometimes, most of the time, I ignore it, just so I can cope and live out each day. But, sometimes, every once in a while, I recognize how amazing it is that I am alive right now and witnessing the final hours of this season of humanity. Sometimes I get excited about what you will have for me to do in these days. Sometimes I recognize the privilege and the trust that you are showing by having me be alive during this season. I am ready God, let's do this!

What God Said Tonight:

It is not about the money or the numbers anymore. It is not about control anymore. It is now about the pure and complete relationship with and in me that people can be saved from sin and the effects of sin. 

Now is the time for people to know me, face to face and with no distance or interference. Now is the time that people need to get serious about what they believe and who they trust. 

The time for game playing is over. The time for truth has arrived. And nothing else will set you free. 

Sunday, January 12, 2014

My baggage...

My prayer:

I am feeling super inadequate tonight God. Sometimes I look at myself and think that I have got so much baggage that I may never be whole. But, maybe none of us ever are until we are with you in heaven? But, that is not what you tell us. You tell us that you came to make us whole. Nothing missing, nothing lacking, perfect shalom. Well, I am sure not there yet and sometimes I wonder if I ever can be. 

I am tired of not being able to trust, I am tired of fear, I am tired of thinking, no matter how good or bad life is right now, if I am not careful, something horrible could be right around the corner. I know fear is not from you God. So why can't I get it out of my life completely and forever? 

What God Said Tonight:

I have come to make you whole. I have come to heal your hurts and redeem your soul. I have come that you can live forever with me. 

Your baggage and issues are part of what make you who you are and part of what make you compassionate for others. I came to earth, partially to experience your experience so I would know, first hand what life on earth is like. I did that because I love you. I did that so I could identify with the struggles you face. 

Your baggage makes you human and makes you humble. It is what makes it possible for you to reach and love people. 

I am not saying that I won't continue to help you mature and grow in your complete healing in me, I will. I am not saying that the things that have happened in your life as a result of this sinful world were good. I am saying that I have and will continue to use all of it for your good and for the good of those around you. 

Stop worrying about being perfect and know that you are perfect in me. Stop trying to fix yourself and know that I will change anything that needs to change in you when it needs to change. My grace is sufficient. End of story. My grace covers you completely. 

I love you and I will forever.

God always has more...

My prayer:

God, I find myself trusting you in a whole new way these days. 

It never seems to amaze me how no matter how great I think our relationship is, you always have new levels of intimacy, joy, trust, blessing, peace. You ALWAYS have MORE! One of the many things that I LOVE about you! You never run out...of anything! 

What God Said Tonight:

I am the God of more than enough, it is true. I will always have more for you. I will always have more love, more healing, more joy, more peace, more excitement, more adventure, more knowledge. Whatever you need and whatever you want, I will have more. I love you sweet daughter and I will never run out. 

Stop for minute tonight and just feel me. I am in you always. I will never leave you. Feel me in you tonight. I want to connect with your heart tonight. We often connect through your thoughts and your intellect, cause I made you that way. But tonight, I want to connect directly with your heart. 

I am going to heal some holes in your heart form past pains and hurts tonight. I will make your heart whole so you can love without reservation. I love you and I have placed my love in you. My love will heal, my love will restore, my love will be the best anything you have ever had...and I always have MORE!

Friday, January 10, 2014

Let God...

My prayer:

I am awfully glad it is Friday night and I am here with you God. Can't wait to hear your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

I bring you peace tonight. I am lifting every worry, every concern, every need from you right now. I will take care of it all. You can trust me. I will bear every burden for you. 

All I need you to do is let me. 

Go and rest and know that I am God, who loves you and will take care of you always. 

Thursday, January 9, 2014

Desires of my heart...

My prayer:

Awesome God. You have said that you will give us the desires of our hearts and truth is, you have done that in my life over and over which is WONDERFUL! My life has been so blessed and your favor has poured over me in so many ways. I am so grateful for all that you have done and all that you do. 

My thoughts tonight turn to when I have a desire of my heart that is no good for me. I would love to be able to say that I only desire good things, things that will result in good things. But in my own perversity and sin, I sometimes desire things that I know will only provide a fleeting satisfaction; but, I don't stop wanting them. 

What do I do about those things God? How do I stop wanting things that will only result in disaster?

What God Said Tonight:

Does an earthly father know how to good gifts? How much more then will I your heavenly Father give you good gifts. You know this word. I will not give you things that will harm you. I can not give you a gift that will harm you. 

I give you the desires of your heart. But what you may not understand is that I see the true desire in your heart. I see beneath the surface "want" and see the root of the desire. The root of your desires are rooted in me and are good.
Your  heart wants only good things. Your brain sometimes does not know how to translate those desires into available options in this world. But the thing is, I am not limited by available options. So, I can see the true desire and fulfill it. That is what I promise for you. 

I promise to fulfill the true desires of your heart and I promise those gifts will be good. Rest and trust that I know and will always provide the best for you.

Right now...

My prayer:

Wonderful Father. Well, we have pretty much talked about all there is to talk about today. Tonight I just want to hang out with you. I don't really need anything, I don't have any pressing questions (a shocker I know!). I just want to spend some time with you and blocking out the distractions of the world. 

What God Said Tonight:

It is right here and right now that matters. You and me together. Yesterday was instructional, tomorrow is going to be exciting, but right now is the moment when we are one and can see the world change. 

Right now is what you have the ability to make a difference in. Right now is when you get to make a choice that will effect what happens next. And, right now we are one and you are focused on me. That means that right now, you can hear me clearly and I can help you the most. 

Hear that I love you. Hear that I am proud of you. Hear that I am so filled with  joy that we are together. This, right now is why I made the sacrifice that I did. So we could have this moment right now. 

Tuesday, January 7, 2014


My prayer:

Wonderful Father. I am thinking about habits tonight. They are tough to break. Especially habitual thoughts. I know you tell us to take every thought captive unto you but I have to say, that is a lot easier said than done. 

My thoughts wander all over the place and sometimes get stuck in a habitual circle that is so hard to break out of. 

I can change my words, I can change my behavior, but how do I change my thoughts? How does this taking thoughts captive really work? We say it all of the time, but I am not sure that I have ever really managed to do it for any length of time. 

Thanks for letting me bring anything to you God.

What God Said Tonight:

My thoughts are not your thoughts. 

You cannot control what you don't think about but you can control what you do think about. What I mean to say is you can't stop yourself from thinking about something unless you replace it with something else to think about. 

Remember when I say to think on good things? That is not only so you will have good thoughts but also to push out the negative thoughts. It is like the analogy that we have been talking about of light and darkness. When there is light, darkness has to leave. When there is positive thinking, negative thinking must go. 

The more you fill your mind with good things, things that lift you up, things that inspire you and others, the less you will find yourself in the negative cycles of thought. Hope that helps. 

Monday, January 6, 2014


My prayer:

Magnificent God. I need to feel your presence tonight God. I need to hear your voice. I need that intimate experience of you that is unlike any other experience on earth. I need you to be with me and in me tonight so I know that you are there. Make yourself more evident to me tonight God. 

What God Said Tonight:

I am here in your always. Draw close to me and I will draw close to you. There is no separation. 

My love for you is beyond imagining and has existed since the beginning of time. I have waiting for this moment with you since I formed the earth. You are precious to me. Your every thought, action, desire, hurt, joy, and goal is dear to me. 

I am in you and you are in me and nothing will ever change that. You can trust that forever. 

I will draw all men unto you through my presence shining through you. You will have opportunities unknown to man before this time because of me in you. 

I will not stay silent and I will not be a passive passenger in your life. I will guide you, I will help you, I will redeem you and I will heal you, now and forever. I will protect you and most of all I will love you always. 

When everything and everyone fails you, I will still be here. I love you.

My prayer:

Awesome God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

Emotions are messy and unreliable. Yet without them, there is no color, no joy in life. It seems pretty clear that you have emotions. When I look at your Word, in the old covenant, you had all kinds of emotions and when you came to earth as Jesus, you showed a lot of emotions. But you sure seem to handle emotions better than I do. 

God, I pray for help with my emotions. I ask that you help me to experience them as they are meant to be experienced and not allow them to overwhelm me. I understand that I might not feel wonderful all of the time but when I don't, help me to learn what I need to learn and move on quickly.

What God Said Tonight:

Who ever told you that you were not supposed to be overwhelmed by your emotions from time to time?

Emotions are the expression of your soul. They are in you for a great purpose, many purposes to be more accurate. You don't like them because you do not have perfect control of them but they were not intended to be controlled perfectly.

Let your emotions have room to express themselves or they will build and bust out in ways that are harmful. If you are not sure where or how you can share them with, share them with me. I promise, I can handle them, no matter how intense.

My prayer:

My attitude stinks tonight God so how about I keep my mouth shut and listen to you instead? 

What God Said Tonight:

Seasons my child. You know about seasons. I know that the season of waiting is never your favorite, but there is value in the waiting. 

There can be peace and rest in the waiting. I am waiting with you if that helps. 

I have things perfectly planed out and the timing is important. The waiting is not too much longer. The waiting is a space to prepare. It is a time to get your things in order so we can go full speed when it is time. Check your life for things that need to be put in place. It will make the waiting go faster.

Healing the hurts...

My prayer:

Wonderful night with you and good friends God! 

God, open my eyes that I can see all of you. Open my ears that I can hear everything that you have to say. Open my heart to receive all that you have for me. Open my mind that I can understand you. I want to know all of you, every aspect, every nuance, every angle that makes up who you are. 

Help me to know you better.

What God Said Tonight:

I am an open book, literally. My nature is on display for all to see. My presence is available to all, all the time. 

You sometimes get blocked by the hurt and pain that gets you wrapped up and behind walls. It makes it harder for you to see me, harder for you to hear me. Let me in to heal the hurt, then you can remove the bandages, tear down the walls and see me fully. 

Let me in to the hurts that you don't even think that you can face, let alone share them with me. I promise, there is no hurt that is bigger or stronger than my healing power. Let me heal the broken parts and you will see me, hear me, feel me, experience me more clearly than every before. 

I love you so much my child, now and forever.

My prayer:

My thoughts are a jumble tonight God. I am not sure even how to organize them enough to talk to you about them. I hope that you hear my heart tonight because my words and thoughts are not really going to be enough. 

I have a great life. You have provided so many blessings in my life, amazing people, your peace, your joy, a great job, undeserved favor. It is a really great life. It is a pretty stable life too. Which is good and I am extremely grateful. But, I want more. 

More excitement, more life changing experiences, more you. The day to day drudgery of life is just not enough. I want my life to matter, everyday. I want to see people amazed at your power, love, and kindness, everyday. I want to walk under an open heaven, everyday!

Does that make me crazy, greedy, both? Probably. I just don't think I was wired for ordinary. I want extraordinary!

What God Said Tonight:

Extraordinary comes with it's own set of problems but it is where you were created to live. I have an extraordinary life for you. It takes some work to find it. It takes some time to reveal it. But it is there and always has been. It is all around you. 

You change more lives than you know right now. But I understand, you want the full package. We are going there, we will get to that place of miraculous living together. You will see into spiritual realms like never before. You will pray and my promises will manifest, immediately in the physical. You will see great change in the world and in people. 

My life, my Spirit is in you. With the Spirit of the living God of all creation within you, how can your life be ordinary? 

I love you and I promise that what you see today is not all that there is. I promise that tomorrow will be new. I promise that you have not done and experienced all that I have for you yet. I love you.

One with God...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am loving the insight you are downloading in me lately! Such joy and freedom in this stuff!

I have started to realize over the last few days that when I truly see you and me as one, suddenly life and the struggles of life become something we approach together instead of something I have to figure out. 

In particular, when I am being tempted by sin, by something that I know will likely result in negative consequences, in the past I would have tried to resist with my own self will and determination. I would try to use my logic or behavioral modification techniques to resist. 

Now that I am beginning to realize that I am one with you, I take the struggle to you and ask you how we are going to handle it. I realize that you are facing the same challenge, the same temptation because you are in me. I see us approaching the challenge as a team, together, as one. 

There is great comfort and I am betting, much greater success in this approach than trying to figure it out myself. It also provides freedom from guilt and beating myself up for being tempted in the first place which is such a waste of time and so damaging. 

Thank you God for being in me and me in you. Thank you for helping me to better understand what that means. I LOVE THIS JOURNEY WE ARE ON!!

What God Said Tonight:

The journey is one of faith and love. The journey is one where we get to know each other and fall more in love than ever. 

Falling in love is wonderful. Staying in love is powerful. 

We are in this together. You never have to face anything on your own ever again because I truly am in you and you are in me. Everything that  you face, good, bad, indifferent for the rest of eternity is something that we face together. You are never alone.
