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.

New new vs. old new...


My prayer:

Sweet Father and Lord. You are so good. Your presence is amazing. Your love is indescribable. Thank you for fulfilling the law so that I can know you like this. As we close out 2017, I pray for a memorable, purpose filled, and joy infused 2018.

What God Said Tonight:

Shiny and new is not always the best way to start over. Sometimes, you can find treasure in your past, in something you already have, just by seeing it in a new light. You take a slightly different view and the thing that you thought was over, done with, no longer relevant, comes to life and becomes powerful and useful again. 

Look at what you have and see it anew. 

I love you.

Season of travel...


My prayer:

I definitely got the time for rest today God. Thank you for that luxury. 

We are almost at the new year. 2017 seems to have passed in a flash. I am not even sure I remember most of it. Maybe I should go back through our posts for the year and see if that gives a clearer picture. 

Most years, there seems to be a bit of a theme. There are years of growth and years of death. Years of joy and years of sorrow. But this year was kind of a fire hose of everything. So much that I think I am left a bit numb. I can only take so much in. 

I think that is why I am enjoying all this quiet time at home right now. It is pretty wonderful to be a bit isolated and not constantly bombarded with everything that comes with being out in the world. I know that soon I will have to go back out but right now, I am really enjoying the peace and quiet of home. 

Thank you for always giving me just what I need God.

What God Said Tonight:

There is a season of travel coming to you. Your time at home is in preparation. Getting your home in order so you can travel the world without worry is the purpose behind this time of rest. 

Remember always that whether we are out and about or home safe and snug, I am with you and I will give you what you need for that moment in that time. I am the great provider. I am your Father and teacher. I am the one that loves you above everything else.

An undemanding God...


My prayer:

Thank you for a simple and good day God. This has been a season of finding joy in the simple things in life. I don't need a lot to be contented. A lot less than I use to think I needed.

Thank you for showing me the joy in simpleness.

What Good Said Tonight:

I love you. I don't need anything from you, not a single thing. Just rest and know that my love is in you and around you. The love bubble is active and functioning with no glitches.

Hope vs. Hell...


My prayer:

You were right God. Today was full of surprises but following your lead, it was peaceful and no problem. Thank you for your guidance, love, and care for me. I am so grateful of you. 

I am grateful that you have already promised that you will never leave me or forsake me. I can't imagine a minute without you. That would be hell.

What God Said Tonight:

A world without me is a world without hope., The actual definition of hell is to be removed from me. I will not let that happen to you in this life or the next 

Tuesday, December 26, 2017

Follow...


My prayer:

I am at peace and loving you. That is a pretty wonderful place to be. What is on your mind tonight God?

What God Said Tonight:

Life is about to become a bit unexpected again. I will guide you through it. Hang on to me and we will walk through each twist and turn. 

There are hazards that I will guide you around. There are joys I will take you to. Follow me and you will never be sorry. 

My angels are around you and we are prepared. Your task is to follow.

Light of the world...


My prayer:

The night before your birth. I know we probably have the day, even the time of year wrong, but to imagine that night. Mary had to be so frightened and excited. John had to be worried and confused. Did they have complete assurance of who you were or did they have doubts? 

I would think there had to be doubts. No one had ever seen a savior, God in human form on earth. No woman had ever given birth without having carnal relations. But, maybe, their experience with you was so profound that it scattered all doubt? I hope so, for their sakes. 

Any way, just the random musings on Christmas eve. I love you and can't wait to celebrate your birthday!

What God Said Tonight:

The lights that shone, from the sky and from the earth. That is what I remember of that night. They were beautiful and seemed to announce the beginning of something never seen before. 

I am the light of the world and that night, all light seemed to celebrate my coming. 

I love you and I am your light.

Until Jesus comes back...


My prayer:

Thank you for getting me home safe tonight God. The storm was intense. 

Nights like tonight remind me how blessed I am to have a safe and warm home to come home to. I pray for every person who does not have that luxury tonight. Awesome Father, take them to shelter. Keep them safe. Keep them warm. 

Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Nights together, those are what I crave. No worries of food and shelter, I will and am taking are of it.

In the meantime, notice the people around you. Care for them until I get back. They need my love more than ever. 

Friday, December 22, 2017

Let God in...


My prayer:

There are times when I need you God and then there are times that I just want you in my life. I don't know which is better. Needing you is more intense but wanting you seems better somehow. Like the difference between a friend who needs you vs. one that chooses you.

I don't know where I am going with this. Would you rather be needed or wanted? Which shows greater faith and love?

What God Said Tonight:

Away from your hand and into my will. There is no one right way to love me. 

There are those who know me and love me. There are those who want to know me and love me. I value both equally. 

Your need for me is something you were born with. Your want of me comes from your heart. 

I really don't care why you let me in your life, need, want, or confusion. All I care about is that you do let me in your life. All healing, all change, all love, comes from you letting me in to you. 

I love you now and forever.

Heart of freedom...


My prayer:

Thank you for the miracles today God. Big and small they were all wonderful. And now, five days of rest and play. I have been working so hard, I am having a hard time believing we made it. My mind has not caught up with the reality that I don't need to worry about work for awhile. I pray for peace of mind tonight God. I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

I have peace in abundance and it is all yours. 

My peace which passes all understanding is not dependent on donors or harness. My peace is the heart of freedom. It is the result of grace. And, it is all yours. 

I love you.

Unseen purpose...


My prayer:

What a long but pretty great day. Thank you God for the opportunities today. I am anxious to hear your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

You are here for a reason and your reason is not lost or missing. You do not always see the purpose I have in events. My thoughts are not your thoughts. But you can always trust that for your life, because you have given it to me, will always have a greater purpose at work. 

I am yours and you are mine. Together we will see the world return to its glory and shine.

Why Jesus was born...


My prayer:

Some interesting challenges today God but you got me through it all with grace. Thank you. Three more days of work and then I get five whole days to celebrate your birth! That is pretty wonderful. If you ever want to transport me in time, that would be one of the moments I would love to see. You, just born with the shepherds and angels and kings all coming to visit. Did they all come at the same time like we have in our nativity scenes or were there visits spread out? Was it right after you were born like tradition says or was it weeks or month later? 

I guess it really doesn't matter. All that matters is you were born, you lived, you died, and you were raised again so that I could know you and my sin could be covered. But, I am curious. I am curious about you. I wonder what your life was like. All those years of growing up, knowing you were you but living like any other man. In your twenties, before your documented ministry and miracles, did the people around you have any idea of who you were? Did they wonder?

Ok, I will stop with the questions. I love you and I am fascinated by you God.

What God Said Tonight:

A life lived is not unusual to the one living it. I cannot really describe what it was like because it is all I know. I came to earth to live as human, but I was always God as human, so my experience was different from yours. 

I came to save you but I came so I could know you. Before that time, I could not truly imagine what it was to live in a mortal body that gets hungry, tired, frustrated, and feels pain. I am God and as such, those things are not a part of what I deal with. 

Coming to live as human helped me to understand the power of the carnal. It helped me to empathize with the struggle. And, it convinced me, more than ever the need to provide you a path out of the grip of sin. To imagine that you could conquer sin through the law was never truly a possibility. On your own, that is not possible. I had to fulfill that law to free you, to know you, to release you from the carnal bond that is so strong on your flesh. I would do it a million times over if I had to. You are mine and I am yours and that will never change. 

Go rest and I will show you some of my memories from that time. I remember a field. It was wheat, the sun was shining, and the children were running through the wheat laughing. That was a beautiful day.

Sunrise...


My prayer:

A wonderful day of rest God. Thank you for the luxury of rest. I know a lot of people never get it. Walking into a new week with most likely, new surprises. I pray for that never ending help that you are so generous with. I am pretty useless without you but with you, literally all things are possible. Help me to be a blessing to others. Help me show your love. Help me so that my words and actions are an encouragement and not a barrier to those around me. Thank you Jesus.

Oh, and also, thank you for the new insight. I am sorry I was so slow to realize the truth of the matter, but thank you for opening my eyes. 

What God Said Tonight:

A light and a horizon are in view. Burning brighter even as you look at it. 

It is the start of something new. Something wonderful. 

You have seen the sunset and you have seen the night. Now it is time to look at the sunrise and see the morning. I love you and a new day is coming.

The future just around the corner...


My prayer:

I have questions I don't know how to ask tonight God. I know that is odd coming from me. I am usually so full of questions, I exhaust the people around me with them. But tonight, I feel as though I am missing something. Some truth, some purpose, but I don't know what it is. 

I pray and ask for your wisdom and knowledge if it is good for me to have it. Open my eyes and mind to whatever it is that is just out of reach, if you are ok with me seeing it. 

I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

The thing that glimpse in the corner of your eye, the thing that you know is there but is just out of reach, that thing is the near future that is waiting to burst in. 

I am telling you, this next season is pretty amazing and fabulous and it cannot wait to get to you Trust my timing, You will see when it is time to see and you will know when it is time to know, 

Consider these shadows precursors to our celebration 

I love you.

Season of success...


My prayer:

Sweet Father. Thank you for everything you have done for me and provided for me this week. I could not have done it without you. You provide for me, everything I need, right when I need it. You are wonderful.

What God Said Tonight:

Wait and see what I have for you next. 

Some seasons are about surviving. Some seasons are for striving. And some seasons are for succeeding. 

I have a season of success for you around the corner. I am excited to see you prosper.

My will, His will...


My prayer:

Today was an exceedingly long day God, but not bad. I pray, more than anything else, that your perfect will be accomplished. Everything is better when your will is in charge. 

What God Said Tonight:

I have very little requirement. I have the ability to work in many different circumstances. 

Sometimes my will is very specific because of the importance of the event and the circumstances it is under. The sacrifice of my son is a great example. But sometimes, most often, my will can be woven into the circumstances of your life to become the structure or backbone of your many other choices. 

As long as you don't choose to live life without me, I can accommodate most other choices. 

I love you and I will never let go.

Waiting...


My prayer:

My mind is blank God. I guess that is better than stressed and worried? What is on your mind tonight?

What God Said Tonight:

Wait. It is not a bad word. Most people think that waiting is some kind of punishment. 

While you are waiting, your ability to perceive reality is twisted. The waiting can create anxiety and anger in you. The waiting can also create strength and faith. 

Waiting is never intended as a punishment. It is always about finding the right and best time for whatever it is you are waiting for. I am pretty good with timing. I know when particular event will have the most positive impact. 

Wait on me so I can give you the life that I have intended for you. Wait on me.

The time has come...


My prayer:

Awesome God. I pray, as we head into this week, that you show me opportunities to be a blessing. I pray that you show me opportunities to live out your purpose here on earth. I pray for meaning, love, joy, and peace everywhere I go.

What God Said Tonight:

The simpleness of your heart is a joy to mine. A great deal more is in your future. I have such joy that you cannot contain I have such blessing that it overflows. I have more than you need and more than you can imagine and I will see you blessed,  I will see you blessed. 

The time is come when the fear shall run. The joy shall fill the heavens. I see your love and it won't be long, We will ride the wind together.

True love...


My prayer:

I love seeing your kids loving on each other God. We are not very good at it and sometimes we forget to do it at all but other times, we get it right and I get to see somebody just love on a brother or sister for no reason, just because they are there. 

Please keep teaching us how to do this better.

What God Said Tonight:

Teaching you to love better is not actually what you need. The barriers to love in your life are more complicated than you realize. 

You know how to love. The challenge is to react in love. Given time, it will be as natural as breathing. Right now, it feels strange because you have been shown twisted versions of love. 

True love, my love will never die. no matter what you do to it.

Wisp of smoke...


My prayer:

I am grateful. I am at peace. I am content. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

Would you have wanted the past to have been different if it meant forfeiting the future I have planned for you? 

Please understand that every season, every struggle, every blessing and every  joy, is all part of the fabric that builds your life and your future. When you are in the hard season, remember I have a purpose. When you are in the easy season, remember I am God. 

We have so much more time together and so much more to do together. This life that you have lived so far is nothing more than a wisp of smoke in the wind. There is so much more. I love you now and forever.

God provides...


My prayer:

Today was full of surprises. I can't even say if they were good or bad surprises but I sit here tonight with my head spinning and filled with thoughts that are rushing by. This life is so uncertain sometimes. We truly are not promised tomorrow. 

Awesome God. You are my rock and my strong tower that I can hang onto in any storm and in this ever changing world. Thank you for being the one thing that never changes. Thank you for always being there for me. 

What God Said Tonight:

Your words and the smoke in the mirror will actually be what saves you. I have a standard principle that I will provide for you. I will not neglect it. 

I am yours and you are mine, forever.

Spring of life...


My prayer:
Thank you for answered prayers today God. You are extending the life of a very good man and I am grateful.

What God Said Tonight:

There is the season of planting, the season of growing, the season of harvest and the season of rest. Each season happens in its own time. Your season is changing now. 

The grass of yesterday has turned into the bailed hay of today. Your tomorrow is of rest and preparation for the new Spring. 

I love you and will see you in the Spring of life.

All miracles...


My prayer:

Surviving today was a testament of you in my life. There is no natural way I could have survived but you brought me through. I am greater, stronger, more capable, and more successful because you are in my life. Thank you!

What God Said Tonight:

Not every miracle comes with a flash, bang, and celebration. Sometimes the miracles are barely noticeable. They are so small that you think they did not really matter but without them, your life would be over. 

I love providing you miracles great and small because I see how they strengthen you and your faith. Take time to recognize them all no matter how big or how small. I love you.

Sunday, December 3, 2017

Come and rest...


My prayer:

I am praying for your continued peace God. I sit here tonight, in peace, in contentment and I pray that it continues. 

Thank you for all you are doing in my life, in my friends and family's lives. You are working everything out and that is amazing and wonderful. But thank you most of all for your peace and love that are not dependent on the circumstances, they simply are. 

I love you.

What God Said Tonight:

Come and rest in my presence and my love. I have made a bed of peace for you to lie in. I will see your energy returned and your fire relit as we prepare for a final battle. 

I love you, I love you, I love you. Come and sit in my love. Let it heal you and make you whole. Let it calm your worried soul. 

I love you, I love you, I love you. I will see you through.

Chasing after love...


What God Said Tonight:

Waiting for anything can make you anxious. Waiting for love can make you crazy. 

The love I have for you is ever present and all encompassing. The love of the world is limited and conditional. The love I have for you is a given. I have already given it to you. The love of the world is most often two steps out of reach. My love heals. My love makes you whole. 

I leave it to you to decide what love to chase after.
