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.

Grow like a tree...

My prayer:

What a nice change today God. Thank you for slowing down the world a little. Thank you also for the perspective. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. I guess I have known that but getting to see it lived out by someone close to me really brings it home and makes it real.

Thank you for where you have planted me. Thank you for making me prosper where you have planted me.

What God Said Tonight:

Your life, the plan for your life is much more complicated than you realize. You see some of the bits and pieces, here and there, but you don't see the big picture. You can't see where you are growing to. 

It is like a tree. A tree does not know where it is headed, it just grows a little each day. The bark expanding, the branches reaching. Each day it becomes bigger and reaches higher. 

I know the final picture, when you are fully grown, and it is beautiful and complicated. As my child, like the tree, you do not need to understand how you will grow or what you will look like, just keep growing and reaching each day. I will make sure it works out.

  3. I am going through some very very rough times right now. I was just thiking about God and where i am headed in life. I have lived it so hard these past 30 years. I often think about being successful and where i will be in a year from now and what i can do to change things. This message spoke dirrectly to me tonight. Thankyou most high God for your word tonight. Please help me to live for you each day and please father remind me when i fall off track that you are guiding my future. Please father take the depression and the hurt away. I cannot go on feeling like this. Thankyou for healing and mending my relationship with the one I love if it is your will. And only do i pray for your will in my life because what I want may not always be the best for me. And even though I dont know it, I know that you DO. Anyone reading this that feels the same hurt I do, Lord, please heal there hurt. Give them strength and courage. Help them to make decisions like you would want us to make and be good role models to others in the name of Jesus. Amen.
