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.

Leave this in my hands.

Present blessings...

My prayer:

Today was just a nice day of peace and rest. Thank you for your peace and rest God. 

There are so many unanswered questions in life right now God. It leaves me feeling on edge most of the time but there are these moments, when I recognize that you are in charge and I just need to trust, those are the moments of peace. Those are the good times. 

I love you God. I trust you. I am grateful for you.

What God Said Tonight:

The universe is bigger than you can imagine and I am God of the universe. I know everything and I am all powerful. 

I remind you of these things to help you remember that there is nothing in your life that is too big, too much for me to handle. I will bring you through always and if you can live in that trust of me, your life, your experience of your life will be so much more peaceful and so much more joyful. 

Don't miss out on the present blessings while waiting on the promise of tomorrow. I have it under control. You enjoy this day, I have made it for you. I love you my child.

God's light...

My prayer:

Happy Birthday Jesus! Thank you Father and Holy Spirit for making it all possible. Thank Mary and Joseph for me for their courage and obedience.

Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

The celebration was wonderful.I love spending my birthday with you! 

Let my light shine down on you. Let it identify you as mine. Feel my light and my love ignite your life. 

I love you my child and we are going into this next year, ready.

Loving God's way...

My prayer:

Thank you God for this quiet time of worship and prayer tonight. You always help me see things from a new viewpoint. When I focus on what I don't have, you focus on all that I have. When I see the missed opportunities you see the preparation for the future you have planned.

I love you Father and I would not want to live this life without you.

What God Said Tonight:

I am your light in darkness and your healing in sickness. I am your waymaker and I am your guide. I am your teacher and your Father. I am your brother and your friend. I am your heart and your purpose. 

I created you with love and the hope that you would choose to love me too. Your love is such a great joy to me. Not only because of what it means to me but more so, what it means to you. Loving with complete abandonment, loving with the love I put in you, will bring you more joy, more healing, more purpose, and more meaning than anything else. 

I love you my child. Let my love grow in you and bring you to the height of the life I have planned for you.

Space for the new...

My prayer:

I am feeling "off" tonight God. I am not sure how else to explain it. Nothing is actually wrong but I don't feel peace. I don't know what I need or what to ask for but I know something is missing. 

All knowing God, I pray for whatever is missing tonight. I may not know what it is but you do. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

A missing piece is one of the only things that has more power in its absence than it does in its presence. You don't notice the pieces when they are all present. It is only when one goes missing that they become apparent and the importance of them in you life becomes apparent. 

We have gone through many changes this year. There are many things that you started the year with that you no longer have in your life. Things, people, has been a year of cleaning things out. 

I have made space for the new in your life. I have cleared out room to accept what I have coming for you. This missing piece you feel tonight is not so much about what is missing but it is being aware of the space I have made in you to receive. 

I will fill you my child. I love you.

Wednesday, December 18, 2019

Jesus' birthday...

My prayer:

It is almost your birthday Jesus! I haven't yet asked you what you want for your birthday this year. Is there anything you want in celebration of your birth? I love you Jesus and my life is yours.

What God Said Tonight:

I want you for Christmas. I want time with you. I want you and I to connect in worship. 

There is nothing I love more than one on one time with my children. Give me the gift of time this year. I love you.

Moldy bread...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I am getting a fresh view of my limitations and yet I believe, you are helping me to remember that my limitations do not define my possibilities. You define my possibilities and I am eternally grateful for that. I pray for your continued guidance and help God. Where I am weak, you are strong, thank you Jesus!

What God Said Tonight:

Mold grows on stale bread. When bread is not consumed, when it is not used for what it is intended to be used for within the time it is intended to be used, it grows mold. That mold ruins the bread for its intended purpose but it is not useless. Even in its decay, great uses can be found. 

Is the value of bread for eating greater than the value of mold for medication? I suppose that depends on whether you are starving or if you are sick. 

I will turn all things for your good. Even that which you see as old and moldy and of no use. Even that, I will use for great purpose. 

I love you my child, all of you.

Thursday, December 12, 2019


My prayer:

I don't have anything new to talk about tonight God. I am still just reeling at the amount of choices that seem to be developing. Thank you for an abundance of opportunity. You are amazing!

What God Said Tonight:

Making a difference and helping people is part of your DNA. It is because you have my heart in you. Anytime that core of you is not being fed, is not having the opportunity to blossom, you will feel unfulfilled.

But be careful to look around you in every circumstance. There is always an opportunity to make a difference and to help people. No matter the poverty of your situation, there is always something to give. It is often true that the sacrifice in poverty has such greater depth of purpose than the generosity in extravagance. 

Your purpose is not defined by your circumstance but you can define your circumstances by your purpose. 

I love you sweet child.

Monday, December 9, 2019


My prayer:

I find myself changing and I don't know if that is a good thing or not. Things that I use to not enjoy, I enjoy now. Things I use to need, I don't need any longer. I really find myself going into a totally new phase of my life, of me. Who new this could happen at this point in my life?

All I ask God is for your guidance. If I get off on a wrong or unhealthy path, guide me back into your will for me.

What God Said Tonight:

This year has been about helping you to see multiple futures for your life. There is no one path for you. I want you to see and to know that you can choose and I will be with you in that choice. I have a plan and a future for your life but that plan is not thwarted by your choices. 

Imagine, explore, and choose what you want to try next. Not what you want to try forever but what you want to try next. 

I am with you. I will stay with you. We will ride into your future together and see what it brings. The adventure never stops if you don't want it to.

In context...

My prayer:

Thank you God for your guidance, protection, and peace. Sweet Father, I do not need anything more tonight than your presence, your voice. 

What God Said Tonight:

I am taking you on a flight tonight to see the world from a new perspective. 

There is a clarity in seeing things from so far above the earth. You are aware of the individual lives and the individual experiences but you also can see how it all fits together. One event in isolation cannot be understood. It is only when you see the fabric of reality from a great height do you begin to understand an event in the context that brings it meaning. 

Take the time to find a greater perspective and know that I am working all things for your good, I promise my sweet child.

Thursday, December 5, 2019


My prayer:

Awesome God. I pray for clarity of vision and for wisdom about what is happening around me. There has been so much deception and after awhile, I begin to question what is the truth. When an entire group of people consistently says "a" is "b", I find myself wondering, is it "b"?

In the midst of the lies, please help me to clearly recognize the truth.

What God Said Tonight:

Truth is and does not change. I am the truth. I am your true north. 

Lies change from day to day. One day they say one thing the next another where the truth remains solid and unmoving.

I am the truth, the way, and the life and I am the litmus test for all things true. 

Monday, December 2, 2019

My prayer:

Kind of a good news bad news day today God. Or, I guess bad news and worse news so count your blessings kind of day. But even through the disappointment, if I have learned anything this last year it is to trust you. So, I will keep on trusting. Love you!

What God Said Tonight:

Each day is a step forward and it is good. A step in the right direction, my will for your life, is always a good thing, even when it seems like it is a failure or a closed door. 

I did not close any doors today and until I close a door, that opportunity is still alive. Nothing was done today but to set up right timing. 

I love you now and forever and I will not let you down.

Saturday, November 30, 2019

Rooted in love...

My prayer:

Amazing God. I pray that I made the best choices today. I thank you for your will in my life and I ask, whenever possible, that you let me in on what that will is, because I would love to help and at a minimum, I don't want to be an obstacle.

Living out your will in this life is really all that matters. When this is all done, that is all I really need to know that I have done. Help me to do it well.

What God Said Tonight:

My will is always rooted in love. There are many things that grow from that root of love. The branches reach out into the heavens. But the root is always love.

If you cannot trace back the root of what you are doing, or not doing, to love, than you are likely not in my will for your life. I simply will not do anything that is not rooted in love.

I love you and I will help you, always. You are my child and I will never leave you. I never intended you to live this life alone. I am forever here with you to help.

Wednesday, November 27, 2019


My prayer:

We are sliding into my favorite holiday God. A whole day set aside to be thankful. If I have not said it enough, I am thankful for you. More than anything or anyone else, I am thankful for you in my life God.

I am thankful for all that you have given me. Loving family, amazing friends, a warm home, love, and so much more. I am thankful for the peace that you give me. I am thankful for the guidance you give me. You are a generous God and I am thankful.

I love you sweet Father, loving brother Jesus, amazing Holy Spirit.

What God Said Tonight:

Receive my love as a warm hug that never ends. Receive my peace as a blanket that calms. Receive my joy as a celebration of light. 

You are my child and it is my great and divine pleasure to give to you. Receive all that I have for you. 

All of heaven rejoices in the joy of my children. I love you now and forever my child.

Sunday, November 24, 2019

Beyond the horizon...

My prayer:

This is such an unusual time in my life God. More than ever before, I don't know what is coming or what to expect. 

I started to say that planning is a waste because nothing comes about as I expect; but, even as the words were forming, I knew that wasn't true. The planning has not been a waste. I have learned a lot in the planning. Even though I may not be using that knowledge when I thought I would, it is still knowledge and knowledge is good.

I will continue to follow each path you show me, planning for what might be, and trusting that what should be is what will happen. I ask your guidance, your protection, and your guidance. 

Awesome God, I am yours.

What God Said Tonight:

The eyes see but they only see so far. The mind thinks but it only thinks to its limits. 

I am the limitless God who can see and think beyond your comprehension. I have a future planned for you, for the world, that you can't actually conceive of yet. It is so beyond your reality that it is hard to wrap your mind around it. 

What you can do is know that I am God and trust that I am taking you there. You can know that my plans for you are good. I do not waste time. I do not waste anything in your life. 

A future that is beyond the limits of the horizon and is rooted in your heart. I love you and I will take you there.

Friday, November 22, 2019

Take a walk with God...

My prayer:

Awesome Father. Thank you for this day. I am grateful for the joy and the hope that filled today. I am grateful for your presence in my life, always.

This has been a rough year with a lot of starts and stops but it seems like things might finally be moving forward. Thank you for forward movement God. 

What God Said Tonight:

Each step is worthwhile even when it is small.

Walk awhile with me. You will see that I do not run, I do not hurry. There is time for everything when you walk with me. I take my time and enjoy the walk.

A walk with me is filled with many experiences. A walk with me is not one that will end at a destination. A walk with me is forever.

I love you. Let's take this walk.

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Which road...

My prayer:

Awesome God. Thank you for bringing me through another day with its joys and challenges. 

My prayer does not change. I pray your will is done in every aspect of my life. In my job, in my home life, in my family, in my friends, in my pets, in my spirit, everything God. If I am not in alignment with your will, there really is no point. 

I don't always understand your will. I don't always know what you will do, especially this year. But I always want your will to be done.

What God Said Tonight:

A road that is heavily traveled is easy to see. It may be pounded flat and it may be full of pot holes but you never mistake where it is and where it leads. 

A road that has fewer travelers is harder to find sometimes but the journey is smoother. That road is meant for the soft footsteps of a journeyer who is more interested in the journey itself and less concerned about the destination. 

I will often take you down the less traveled road. It is a road where you can stand out and shine in my glory. It is a road where you can appreciate each moment. It is a road that leads to a destination but that is not the real point of this road. 

Enjoy the journey my child.

God's intentions...

My prayer:

Thank you God for the blessing of these few days. Thank you for hearing my prayers. Thank you for your love. 

What God Said Tonight:

A respite. An oasis. A place of peace in the storm. I know you are grateful for it but I intend for much more in your life. 

I intend a life of purpose and living in my glory. I intend a life of joy. I intend a life of great peace that cannot be moved by circumstances. My intentions for you are good. 

I love you my child and I will see you stand in fields of great harvest. I will see you succeed.

Friday, November 15, 2019

Farming, not just for food...

My prayer:

Wow God! Just, WOW! What a difference in just a couple of days!

Thank you for all of the new opportunities today. I am not sure where we are headed but I am grateful to see so many roads of possibilities! I pray your guidance and your help. Keep doors open that need to be open and close those that should be closed. 

Thank you Thank you Thank YOU!

What God Said Tonight:

Seeds are breaking through the ground and growing into stalks. Farming is not just for those who grow food. 

Your life has been anchored by giving and sowing. You are right to expect a harvest. 

The season of hibernation is ending and your season to harvest is near. 

I love you and I will see you whole.

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Stop and listen...

My prayer:

Awesome God, we have already been talking most of the night so I won't waste time here whining. It comes down to one simple prayer. Help, please.

What God Said Tonight:

Ah, there you go, you finally stopped to listen. When you have reached that spot of desperation you have a tendency to do all of the talking but forget to listen. 

Come, sit with me and calm your soul...

Everything is not as it seems. What you see today as failure is actually part of a greater success. 

But right now, I don't even want you tho think or worry about that. Right now, just let go and let me carry you. Right now you do not have to be strong. Right now you do not have to solve any problem. Right now you do not have to make any plans. Right now, breathe, rest your eyes, and rest in me. 

I am with you. Today is not he end. Let me kiss your head and hold you tight. I have got you now and forever my love.

Sunday, November 10, 2019

Turn all things for my good...

My prayer:

Awesome God. You are a God of order and I pray your order, your will, your dominion be over my life. Guide every step, word, and thought. I am my very best when I am fully submitted to you. I love you dear God.

What God Said Tonight:

Little is left to say. The desires of your heart are mapped in your future. It is not exactly what you thought it would be and it is not when you thought it would be but it is accomplished and in the best timing and way for your good. 

I turn all things to your good. Sometimes that even means your own actions and words. 

I love you now and forever. The future is bright and is more than you can imagine.

Friday, November 8, 2019

A woman...

My prayer:

You are the God of hope. You are my hope God. Thank you for new opportunities and avenues. I pray your guidance and your favor on the path you have chosen. I will follow God. I do not want to be anywhere other than where you have placed my steps.

What God Said Tonight:

Life is simple but life is messy. My path is right in front of you. Follow your steps. My fury is behind you and my grace is upon you. 

You are walking in the divine presence and you will not falter. A man who is with his wife and children, praising me is a beautiful site. A child with words of praise on his lips makes me weep with joy. But a woman, when a woman commits to me there is something special in that. 

When a woman gives, she gives with her whole heart. It is never, "Part of what I have" it always "All of what you need." She does not base her generosity on her supply. Instead, she has learned to give like a farmer sows wheat. I will ensure that harvest. 

Tuesday, November 5, 2019

A path of love...

My prayer:

Today really kicked me in the face God. I need your help to find a way through this latest mess that is your path of love. The path being offered is one of ruthlessness and anything but love. Help me God to find a path of love that will be accepted. I pray God for your help.

What God Said Tonight:

A path of love is always available and I will light it up for you. Even in the worst of conditions, love can survive. In the death camps, love was there. 

Love does not die in the face of evil. Love does not die in the face of challenge. Love is and will always be. Sometimes it is hidden by the circumstances but it is always there. 

I will show you its path and you my child, will follow. The path of love draws your feet as my child. It is like a magnet to you. Trust that I will find a way. 

I love you sweet child. Rest now.

Sunday, November 3, 2019

Promise of love...

My prayer:

Total trust that now, more than ever, your will shall be accomplished. There is no greater possibility for my life than for your will to be done. I am all your God.

What God Said Tonight:

A night of peace, I give to you. A night of promise, I give to you. 

Not the promise of things that are transient but a promise of love that is permanent. I promise you my love, now and forever and all that comes with that love. You will never lack love in your life because you will never be without me. We are bonded throughout all time and will not be separated. 

I love you, now and forever mu child. 

Friday, November 1, 2019

Love matters...

My prayer:

Thank you God for tonight. Tonight was renergizing and validating. You have put such amazing people in my life and I am so grateful. There are also people you take out of my life and even when I understand why, I miss them sometimes. 

Tonight I pray for all of the people in my life, past, present and future God. I pray that you meet every need. I pray that you guide and direct them into a future of abundance in every way. I pray that you shower them with love, from you and from whoever they have in their lives tonight. 

I love you God.

What God Said Tonight:

Not every person I remove in your life is removed forever. You are made to be in relationship and sometimes those relationships are constant but other times they are intermittent. 

You may have someone in your life for a season and then for another season, I need them somewhere else. That does not mean, in a season to come that they won't be back in your life. 

Love people, all people, whether you can see them today or not. It is the only thing I truly ask of you. When you send out your love, it matters. It makes a difference. It is important. 

You send out your love and I will take care of the rest. I love you my daughter, now and forever.

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Leap of faith...

My prayer:

Stepped out in faith again today God. It was pretty easy. That is something that generally gets less scary the more times I do it because whether it works out the way I hope or not, you always work things out for my good, so why not step out. Why not take the leap of faith? 

Awesome God, my life is in your hands, now and forever.

What God Said Tonight:

It is only when you leap that you can see far enough into the future to dream, to hope, to strive for more. It is the act of stepping out in faith that allows you to hope for more. 

The leap doesn't always get you to what you want but it elevates your perspective to allow you to see what you want, what is possible. 

Leap my child, step out, see the possibilities. I will take care of your future. You are solidly within my hands. But in the meantime leap and see what you can see. I love you.

Sunday, October 27, 2019

Impending doom...

My prayer:

I have a sense of impending doom tonight God. I don't know if it is real or if it is my imagination. I do know that I hate this feeling. It makes me want to hide and to give up. It makes me feel like I am not me but I am someone who has no faith and has no courage. It makes me feel like a victim and a loser. 

Where is this coming from God? If it is real, what do I need to do? If it is false, God please remove it.

What God Said Tonight:

A sense of impending doom is never from me. With me, you always have hope. With me, you can always trust that I have a plan. With me, mo matter how bad the circumstances get, you always have me to bring you out. 

Impending doom is a lie from the devil. It is weapon to make you want to give up. It is smoke and mirrors with no truth in it. Yes, a million things could go wrong tomorrow or even yet tonight, but nothing can go wrong that I don't have an answer for. Nothing can be broken that I cannot fix it. 

I am your hope and I am your Father. No weapon formed against you will prosper. These are my promises to you. 

Friday, October 25, 2019

Diamonds and grace...

My prayer:

There are a lot of people talking Lord but none of them feel like they are being heard. Help us to listen to others like we want to be listened to. I pray for your peace and your love to take us over God. Help us to treat each other better, with kindness, love, and understanding. Thank you Jesus.

What God Said Tonight:

You are diamonds. My children are diamonds. 

Some are cut and polished and gleaming in the sun but some are are still in the rough with their beauty hidden. Others are still coal waiting for the pressure to transform them into the diamond they are meant to be. 

Remember to give grace to every stage of development. You are all diamonds and deserve to be treated as precious. 

I love you and one day you will all shine.

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

God hears...

My prayer:

You know all of my prayers and all of the things I hope for. You know my fears and you know the things that make me want to cry. I need you in everything God. I need you to breathe and I need you to save this world. From the smallest thing to the largest, I need you. 

Thank you for being more than enough for everything I need.

What God Said Tonight:

Your prayer has been heard and your heart is known to me. I love you now and forever my child. Rest knowing that I am truly all that you need and I will not let you down.

Sunday, October 20, 2019

Warrior at the core...

My prayer:

Thank you God for making me capable of things I don't think I am capable of. Thank you for giving me strength and patience when I run out. Thank you for hope in the middle of desperation. 

You are always everything I need when I need it and with you, ALL things are possible.

I declare this all as a witness and a testimony, not a positive confession of what I have not yet seen. You are my everything.

What God Said Tonight:

Sometimes you have to have everything stripped away to see what is important. You need to know who you are. Not what you do for a living, but who you are. At your core, after everyone goes home and every obligation is met, who are you? 

I need you to remember and to recognize the woman and warrior I created you to be. Not dependent on the circumstances or other people's favor. I am your source and I am your identity and together we will see the victory. 

I love you, now and forever. 

Friday, October 18, 2019

Out of sync...

My prayer:

Awesome God. I have no new prayer tonight. I have no new requests. You know what is happening and what is needed much better than I do. Thank you for always taking care of me, no matter what I need. I love you and long to hear your voice.

What God Said Tonight:

The roses are fading and the leaves are falling but new life is being birthed in you. New dreams, new directions. 

Your life is not always in sync with the seasons around you. You are not of this world my child. 

Know that your season is ordained by me. I have chosen you for this time and for this season. It will not feel comfortable but it will be right and good and where you should be. Keep trusting and I will build a testimony in you that is mighty. 

I love you child. 

Tuesday, October 15, 2019


My prayer:

Awesome God I pray for clarity. In a world where up is down and good and bad have lost meaning, I pray for clarity. 

When do I love and let it go and when to I stand up for you and your Kingdom principles? Or am I standing up for you when I love and let it go? 

Divisiveness is tearing our world apart and I know very well that is a direct weapon of satan. There is little he fears more than the power of unity in Christ. I know it is him sowing this divisiveness. What do I do or not do to fight back? 

Please guide and direct my path God with a clarity that cannot be denied.

What God Said Tonight:

Following me is easy. I have carved my will upon your heart. As a child of me, when you follow your heart you follow me. 

Trust what you know. Not what people tell you. Not what the internet tells you. Trust what you know in your heart. Trust what I have told you. Trust my word. 

A clarity of vision and of direction is really just a trust in me and in my will for your life. 

Do you think that anyone, the devil or anyone else, has any power to stop my will in your life? You are mine and I have you carved in the palm of my hand. I will not see you defeated and I will not see you harmed. I will see you victorious. 

Follow your heart my child. It will show you my way.

Sunday, October 13, 2019


My prayer:

I don't know what to pray tonight God. Maybe tonight is a good night for listening instead of talking.

What God Said Tonight:

Rainbows are promises and a symbol of my love. As each leaf turns and each season changes, it is reminder that nothing here on this earth is meant to last. Change is the only constant. Let that comfort you in pain and let that be a reminder to cherish the times of joy. 

I say the only constant is change but that is not really accurate, I do not change. I am the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. You may learn more about me. You may draw closer to me but I do not change. I took care of you yesterday and I will take care of you today. I will take care of you for every tomorrow throughout the end of time.

Season of deception...

My prayer:

Today was disappointing. I know that you are in charge of my life and so the fact that this opportunity fell through means that it was not meant to be and in my head, I can be thankful that you kept me from it. But, my heart, it is disappointed. 

It seemed like everything was falling into place. It seemed preordained. And then suddenly, it is over. I felt like the rug was yanked out from underneath me. That has happened a lot in this season God. When do I get to be on the other side of it all. When do I get to step into the promises?

I don't mean to whine and I am truly grateful for your guidance. 

What God Said Tonight:

A time and a season is coming when even my most precious and learned children will be fooled. Satan has spent a lot of time studying how I work and how I move. He has learned to mimic me. He has learned to fool my children with his lies and misdirection. 

In this season of deception, you must rely on the truth that you have learned in your heart. You must rely on the truth I have written in your heart. You must trust that I will not let you walk into a future that I have not ordained for you. You must trust that I will guide your footsteps. 

There is more deception to come. Do not believe the word being spoken. Do not believe what you see. Believe in me. Trust in my truth. Continue to follow my path for you and we will walk through it. We will be on the other side victorious. 

This side of a challenge always seems so long because it is all up hill and you don't know when the end is coming. Once you are there and you look back on this time, it will seem fleeting, I promise. 

I love you and you are my child. Do not let the enemy distract you or fool you with his treachery. My love, trust me and my love for you.

Don't hold me back...

My prayer:

You are amazing God! Thank you for the evidence of things moving forward today! I am SO EXCITED!!! You are my God and with you, all things truly are possible.

What God Said Tonight:

Look out to the horizon and see all the land, all the possibilities yet to come. The possibilities are endless. The destination as far as you can see and beyond. 

You will have those coming around you, curious as to where you are going. They mean no harm but they can be a distraction if you let them. Keep your eyes on the horizon and tell them they can come with you but that you can't stay here with them. Don't let your love for them, keep you from moving ahead.

Preparation for purpose...

My prayer:

I am dreading tomorrow God. I know I should have a better attitude and if you have taught me anything in the last year, it is that I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. 

I pray that you help me find the joy and peace in tomorrow, what ever it brings. Help me to love the people around me and to be a blessing to them. Help me to make a difference for good. Help me God to matter. 

What God Said Tonight:

No verse and no song can give you the peace that you seek. The peace that you seek is a peace that comes from purpose. The peace that you seek is a peace that comes from passion. These are things that are within you. Your displacement comes from feeling like you are not walking in that purpose and that passion. 

But, to truly be prepared to walk in your passion, sometimes you need preparation in a different field. Sometimes you have to learn to find joy in harvesting corn when you know that you passion is harvesting wheat. Sometimes you have to find joy in the prison when you know that your passion is in the palace. 

I have a plan on your life and do not doubt that every place, every event, and every season is a part of that plan. 

Find your strength in me. Find your joy in me. Grow where you panted and know that a transplant is on the way.

Heaven on earth...

My prayer:

It feels like my life took a bit of a pause from the craziness today and I am very grateful. I really needed 24 hours where nothing really happened. 

Thank you for the pause God. You always give me what I need when I need it. You are a GOOD, GOOD, Father.

What God Said Tonight:

I will rock you and soothe you. I will care for you and protect you. I will keep you safe and I will see you prosper. 

A life in the shadow of my love will never leave you bored and will always be worth the struggle.

I love you now and forever my child. The future is in the future, the past is in the past and tonight, we have each other. Sounds like heaven on earth. Rest in me tonight my love.

A horrible day...

My prayer:

Today was pretty horrible God. I know I should have a positive attitude and find the good in it. I know that many people had much worse days than I did. But, none of that changes that today was horrible and the only good thing I can say about it is that it is over. 

I love you God and I pray for recovery and a new day.

What God Said Tonight:

I don't need you to put on a fake smile for me. I know how your day was. I was in it with you and not all days are filled with joy. 

Your path is still clear and unchanged. The battle of today is just that, a battle. The war is yet to be completed and yet to be won.

Clear path...

My prayer:

I don't know how to ask for what I need tonight God. I know you are already in charge and in control, working all things for my good. So, I don't pray over the circumstances tonight. 

I pray and ask that you fill me with whatever it is I need to do whatever you want me to do. If that is compassion, fill me with your compassion. If that is love, fill me with your love. If that is purpose, fill me with your purpose. 

Thank you God for equipping me for whatever you have for me this week.

What God Said Tonight:

Every rock unturned is covering a secret. Every rock overturned has revealed its secret. Over turning rocks is not a useful way to spend your time. 

The path I have laid for you is clear. Follow your feet and you will reach our destination. The timing is set and is not in jeopardy. 

You are my love. Take each step with assurance. I love you .

The in between season...

My prayer:

Thank you for all of the answered prayers lately God. You are taking care of us and our situations and I am so grateful. There is a lot still up in the air but each day gives me more hope for the future. I love you now and forever my God.

What God Said Tonight:

The harvest is ripening. The season for harvest and storing for the cold to come is here. 

This is a season of preparation and a season of realizing the fruits of the past seasons. In this season, take time to savor all that has been done while preparing for what is to come. Take time in this season to feel the comfort of the past and the excitement of the future while you are in between both. 

This place of in between does not have to be uncomfortable. It can be a place of great comfort. Like a blanket and a cup of hot cider in a rain storm, this season is all about storing up and preparing. 

See the maturity around you and see the maturity within in  you. It is all in place to take you into your future. 

I love you now and forever my child.

Different viewpoint...

My prayer:

Thank you for the clarity and insight you just gave me God about my situation. 

It helps to make sense of it for sure but now what do I do with that knowledge? Do I need to find a way to be ok with it or do I need to leave that situation? Knowledge is good but I also need the wisdom to know what to do with the knowledge. Do I need to reason this out or will you show me the way?

Life is exhausting right now God. All of it. I know I said I was ready for change and I am; but the process of getting there is wearing me out. 

God, my life is yours and as always, I pray your will is done in my life.

What God Said Tonight:

It is a different view of the same thing. The situation has not changed but you are seeing it from a different angle. 

It is up to you to decide how you feel about what you see. It is up to you to decide if that makes the situation easier or harder for you. 

My plans have not changed. This new vision and viewpoint are not new to me. My plan is still in place and in progress. Make your choices based on what you know to be right and good, in the long run. 

In the short term, let this new vision be a reminder that not everything that you see is what you think it is. You think you know the truth and understand what is happening around you but you only understand the viewpoint that you have. The truth is much more complex. 

Find you peace in the grace and love that you receive from me. Remember that others need that same grace and love and you get to be a conduit for it. I love you and you are safe in my will.

The battle cry...

My prayer:

Thanks for the luxury of rest this weekend God. I definitely needed it. Tonight, I am just hungry for your voice. Your presence, your love, your voice are the BEST things in all existence. My holy and awesome God.

What God Said Tonight:

The battle cry is ringing out from the mountain top. I am raising my sword in warning. The battle is upon us and the victory will be mine. 

I am a gentle God. I am a loving God but never forget, I am also the all powerful God. 

I am roaring my warning. Pay heed to it. Get covered in the blood of my son. Receive your protection that I have provided for you. My anger and my wrath is not for my children.

God hugs...

My prayer:

I am learning not to get upset or worried or even disappointed when things don't go the way I hoped they would. I am learning that you really do have a plan, every time, and what I see today may have nothing to do with what actually happens in the end.

But, it is also leaving me a bit numb. While I am not getting too upset when things go wrong, I also find I am not getting too happy when things go well. 

Where is the balance God? Where is the place where I can live in joy, trusting you, and not go off the deep end when things get hard? 

What God Said Tonight:

I never intended your life to be a roller coaster. When you set your eyes on me you can live in joy regardless of the circumstances. 

Your joy, rooted in me and in our relationship will never falter because I will never falter. Your joy in the events of your life will wax and wane because those things are in constant state of change. 

Your place of peace comes from knowing that no matter what the circumstances of your life may be, you can always find joy in me. You can always find peace in me. When things are going well and when things are rough, I am always there. 

Live your life, experience the ups and downs but your downs will never be too low and your highs will always be found in me. I am the borders of your life, like a hug around every circumstance. 

I love you now and forever my child.

What God looks at...

My prayer:

I am super curious about what you are going to do next God. 

Today was such a mix of exciting potential and stagnant disappointment. I find myself in such a place of peace tonight, convinced that you are taking care of it all. I sure like this place of trust better than where I was a couple nights ago, convinced that my dreams were being crushed. 

I pray for your help to stay in this place of trust and awe while you work it all out. I LOVE YOU!!!

What God Said Tonight:

Man sees what is in front of him. I see what is inside of him. It is the nature of a man that determines his future. It is his core that determines his success. 

You look at circumstances but I look at you. I look at your spirit cloaked in the blood of my son. I look at your heart surrendered to me. I look at your soul that dedicates itself to me, over and over in spite of every opportunity to walk away. 

I will see you succeed in all that you do. You will not be able to help it. I will bless the work of your hands every day. I will lift you up as a beacon of all I can do in the life of my child. 

I love you now and forever my child. I am in your corner, on your side, and pre biased to find you perfect.

The future...

My prayer:

SO many dreams God. So many plans. Did we really come so far to give it all up now? The verse about you not bringing this far to leave us, that this work you have begun in us, you will finish keeps running through my mind. 

But, maybe I don't understand what the true work is. I know what I have been hoping for and dreaming of but maybe your agenda is different. Even as I type this, I can hear you saying that I am what is important to you. The character and safety of your children is what matters to you. The things that I worry about are not even a blip on your radar because you know they are already taken care of. 

When it comes down to it, God I pray your will be done. Your will is what is most important. You know my thoughts and desires of my heart. And, if it is within in your will, I ask humbly for you to fulfill those desires. But, if it is not in your will for what ever reason or if the timing is still not right, then amen God. Not my will but your will be done.

What God Said Tonight:

I won't give you the answer you seek tonight but I will let you know that the answer is coming. I will not tell you the outcome tonight but I will tell you that the outcome is assured and your testimony will be great. 

I love you. You are what matters to me. I will bring about the future that is meant to be. Your best future. Your best path. 

You have trusted me with your present and you have trusted me with your future. I will not betray that trust. I will see you through. I love you now and forever and I will not let you down. I will not see you suffer. I will see you shine in my reflected glory. 

Sleep now with the full assurance that I will.

Woven vs. tangled...

My prayer:

It is really good to be with you here tonight God. My home is in your presence. My peace is found in your presence. My joy is driven by your presence. 

I am grateful for all of the new beginnings you are bringing in my life right now. It was pretty stressful there for a while but I have settled into a place of trust and peace and I honestly have no doubts that you are working everything out. 

Keep guiding me on anything I need to do, or not do. I don't want to get in the way either by doing things that are not needed or not doing things that are needed. 

I am yours God, now and forever.

What God Said Tonight:

Those things that seem tangled up and a mess are not actually tangled, they are being woven to create a stronger future. It is in the process of weaving strands together that they become more. More useful, stronger, to do things they could not do n their own. 

I am weaving strands of your life together into a tapestry that will be strong and able to accomplish much more than a few stray strands can accomplish on their own. 

I love you now and forever.

Results and resolution...

My prayer:

I know what I need to do but I need your help in how to do it God. I am having a really hard time imagining any way for there to be a positive outcome. That is usually my forte. I am usually the one people come to when they have a difficult conversation or communication that they need to have, but this time, I am stumped. 

I pray for wisdom, guidance, favor, and help to do this thing in love and in the way that you would have me do it.

What God Said Tonight:

The results and the resolution are not your responsibility. Your responsibility is to do the most loving thing you can and to be wise enough to know what that is. 

I will help you, of course. Also remember that it is in my hands, you have put it there, and I will take responsibility for the outcomes. I have a chance to heal here and I want you to be a part of it, just not in the way you are accustomed to being a part of it. 

This new season, as we have discussed, needs to be fresh and free of the baggage you have been carrying, free of the worry over things that were never meant to be your responsibility. 

I love you and I will help you.

Joy and peace...

My prayer:

Watching you work in my life is pretty amazing God. I am so excited to see how you work this all out. Thank you for the opportunity to be a blessing tonight. Thank you for the courage to step into the opportunity. Thank you for being you and taking care of me!

What God Said Tonight:

Every day is one more opportunity to find joy and peace. The day has moments of goodness and moments of sorrow. In the midst of it all, find your way to my peace, my joy, and find a way to embrace those things. 

It is my peace and my joy which will get you through the rest. 

I am your armor and a safe passage through the gauntlet of life. I am your protector and your guide. I am your ever present help. I will never let you down. 

Thank you for trusting me even when it does not look good. You will never regret trusting me. That is my promise.

Stop hanging on...

My prayer:

Thank you for your peace today God. Help me to live each day, in your will, and in your peace. That is it really. You already know all the many needs and you have already told me that you are taking care of it all. So, I am grateful and living in your peace.

What God Said Tonight:

Hanging on to a crumbling ledge is never a good idea. I will work in your life and I will strengthen those things in my path for you and I will let the other things die. Don't let your self hang onto something that is dying or dead. It will never lead you to the future I have for you. 

Let go of the crumbling ledge and let your feet fall on solid ground. Let go and let is a real thing although it has become a cliche. 

I love you and I am with you always.

Faith and encouragement...

My prayer:

God, here is the thing. I believe you are working in my life. I believe you are working everything out for my good. But this is all SO COMPLICATED, I am completely lost as to how and what you are going to do. 

I think that is the point. If I could figure out what you are doing, being me, I would probably try to help, which you clearly do not want or need. 

So, I get it that I am not supposed to get it, but that is SO HARD!! It is making me a little crazy. 

I pray for your help in this season to find your peace while you work it all out.

What God Said Tonight:

Not everyone is capable of a life of faith. But some are and those I will grow in their faith. 

Faith is what keeps you strong in the middle of the battle that I am fighting. It holds you up and let's you know who will win. Faith is the substance of things hoped for. It is your hopes made real. 

Your faith will manifest in great dreams and I will see to it.
You need encouragement tonight, I am here for your encouragement. I am still in charge and I will not let you down. Know me and who I am, who I love, and what I do for those I love. Remember. You have read about it but more importantly you have experienced it, 

This is one more path to follow, it is just a rocky one, I love you and I will not fail you. I cannot fail.
