Spend Time With Me, Child.

Spend time with Me
Spend time with Me.

Spend time with Me, My child.

Here I am, Lord. So what would You like to talk about?

You, My child. I love you.

Oh Lord, I don’t know why. After all, I feel stupid, messed up, and confused. It seems I’m constantly running back and forth in circles.

As a matter of fact, I stay extremely busy. But I’m accomplishing nothing, that is nothing significant.

Lord, I’m so confused. Most of the time, I feel like a failure.

Child, don’t you know I love you as you are. But I’m not going to let you stay this way.

As a matter of fact, I’m going to change you into My victory trophy.

Lord, I don’t feel like a victory trophy. At this time, I feel like I am a failure example.

Child, in My family there are no failures, only lessons not learned yet. And you are learning. In fact, the main thing you’re learning is that I love you unconditionally.

And I will always love you.

Nothing can change that, not even you. So there, My Child, rest in that. Rest in My love.

But Lord, I want to be used by You.

Child, you are and you will be.

Lord, help me keep my focus on You.

Child, don’t worry about goals set by others. Instead, make it your goal to do My will each day to the best of your ability. And I’ll take care of the rest. Trust Me. Spend time with Me.

Yes Sir. Help me keep my focus on Your will, pleasing You in all things, in all ways.

Child, I have you in My hands. I have all My children in My hands holding each one close to My heart.

 I enjoy blessing all My people. But it’s Satan’s desire to steal, kill, and destroy. In comparison, it’s My desire to bless, increase, grant a hope and a future, to prosper all of Mine, heal, set free, and deliver.

It’s My plan to bless with increase, restoration, and to grant eternal life to all who seek My love.

Child, it’s your job to trust and obey. So allow Me to guide your every step and your every word. And spend time with Me.

Yes, Lord, thank you for Your mercy and Your love. I don’t deserve it. I never can.

Child, I love you because I want to, not because you deserve it. I love all of Mine because I want to. After all, I willingly gave up My life because I wanted to.

Spend time with Me, My child.

I love all, but I’ll never force My love on anyone. They have to ask Me. They have to invite Me into their hearts.

Oh, if they only knew the depths of My love, the infinity of My love, and the indescribable joys of My love. Then, not only would they ask Me to be in their hearts, they would run to Me in joyful anticipation of My love for them.

But Satan lies and deceives them. He clogs up their ears with his mind blinding spirit. He fills their hearts with false promises of all that glitters, but is not true gold.

My Presence not only opens ears to hear My voice, but it also heals broken hearts and renew minds with limitless possibilities. All things are possible in My Presence.

SUFFERING INNOCENTS

 

The suffering innocents
The Lord hears the cries of the suffering innocents.
The suffering innocents, Lord, what about them?
I hear and listen to their cries. Know this, My child, upon their last  earthly breath, they are immediately gathered into the safety of My loving tender bosom. Know this, My child, once I have them, I reward them in paradise so immensely that they can only rejoice in eternal happiness as they release their pain into the sea of forgetfulness.

Just Enjoy My Presence

Just Enjoy My Presence

Just enjoy My Presence, Child. Our relationship comes first. You’ve heard, ‘Take care of Mama first.” I say unto you, ‘Take care of our relationship first, above all else. And let Me take care of all else.”

But Lord, there are so many needs of others. I feel guilty talking to You about my needs. Continue reading Just Enjoy My Presence

Lord, What do You Want?

So Lord, what do You want with me?

I want your love. Not your performance, just your love.

Lord, am I sidetracked?

You have been.

So what do I do now?

Come to Me and listen.

Okay Lord, here I am. Now Lord, what do You want with me? What do You say?

I love you and I died for you. In fact, I’m here to help you. Come to Me. Bring all of you, all that you are, and all your dreams to Me. Allow Me to fill you with Myself, My Holy Spirit.

Fill me Lord, fill me. Lead me, guide me. Because I want to do Your will.

The Sovereign Lord has given me His words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning He wakens me and opens my understanding to His will. Isaiah 50: 4 NLT

____________________________

Lord, what do You want with me? I don’t feel like I have enough time. So what can I do? I want to be there for my family. I want to write books and I want my house clean too.  In addition to all else, I want to help others. There just isn’t enough time for me to do it all.

Child, if you look to Me as you go through each day, I will lead you with every step. I will guide you with My eye. Now give Me a tithe of your time. Then you will see an increase of your time.

Alright Lord, how do I give you a time tithe. How do I give You this?

(24 hours a day x 7 days = 168 hours weekly.  168 divided by ten = 16.8. Rounded to 17 hours weekly.  Tithe of 17 hours weekly minus 4 hours each Sunday at church & 1 hour on Wednesday for choir = 12 hours divided by 6 = 2 hours daily. )

So Lord, how do I give You two hours a day? Help me.

Child, I want to be with you all throughout your day. I want you aware of My Presence all throughout your day. In fact, I want to be with you in everything you do. 

Lord, help me.

Child, as you go throughout your day, sing just for the joy of it. During the shutdown last year, you quit singing for joy. You had no joy.  Now I want you to sing again. So sing when you work and when you’re by yourself. 

For now quit seeking the words of others and seek Me. Overall seek My Presence and I will fill your steps with joy and peace. 

Spend your precious time with Me first and I will increase your time.  Since I am God and I can do anything including multiply your time, come to Me first. 

No, you don’t have to give up sleep to get more time in your day. Because I will enable you to accomplish twice a much in your earthy hours. Remember I created the earth and I created time. Therefore I am the God of  all eternity. So do you think time limits Me? I say not. 

So come to Me first with your day. Then watch and see what I do with your time. 

Yes Sir.

So come to Me and I will give you rest.

 

Paths of Destruction

Lord, today so many are in paths of destruction. So we ask for a covering of Your Holy Spirit over this land. In fact, the whole world needs You.

Help Me Listen More

Help me listen more to You, Lord. Help me listen more to what You say about me versus what others say. But especially, help me listen more to You versus what I say about myself, words of self-criticism, self- condemnation, and words of “should’ve done this” or “should’ve not done that.”

Seek My Presence

Seek My Presence
Seek My Presence

My Child, seek My Presence, rest in My love. Know I’m not a performance-based God. No, instead it’s My desire for you to seek and enjoy My Presence. So cease from your striving for perfection and enjoy My company, My Presence. 

You can never achieve even your own performance standards. So let go and just enjoy My Presence. For My Presence is sweetness for your soul. My Presence will fill you with peace and joy unspeakable. 

My love for you is not based off what you do. Instead My love for you is based off what I’ve done. You can’t earn My love by your so-called good performance. My love is freely given to you for no reason except I want to give it. I want to give you My love- not a “to do” list. I just want to love My people  and help them to know my love deep within their hearts.Seek My Presence

This is My focus- to exchange love with My people. I love them and I long for them to love Me. They’re not to strive to earn My love. After all it can’t be earned for the price is too high and no one can pay it, no matter how rich they are. But I freely give My love to each and everyone, no matter their walk in life. I am concerned over each individual. And I reach out in My love to all, to each and every single one.

People have been so beat up with all their man-created religious rules. They beat up on each other, full of judgements and accusations. Then they compare themselves to each other to measure their own performance standards. And all I want to do is love them. 

But Lord, what about all those rules You gave to Moses and all those rules in Leviticus?

Child, each one of those rules were to make their lives better and easier. Living by those rules will bring you a better life versus the concept of “do whatever you want to”. If you look at those who follow the philosophy of “do whatever makes you happy”, they are miserable.

Your victory is assured
Because of Me, your victory is assured.

Selfishness causes much heartache. The rules I gave help bring order and peace. When people do whatever makes them happy by living for their own selfish desires, it causes much pain and heartache. I knew selfishness caused misery, so I gave My rules as a gift of wisdom. 

People think if they only please themselves then they would be free to enjoy their lives in their own pleasure. But it doesn’t work that way. 

It’s only living a life in My Presence that brings true peace, joy, love, and deliverance. It’s only My love that sets people free to truly enjoy their lives.

These rules are to guide them until they come to know My love. When My Presence and My love rule over their hearts, then they won’t need to be concerned with rules, for I will lead them and guide them to an abundant free life, full of joy and peace. My love is the answer for all their questions.

I do not expect perfection from My children, for I know they are weak and frail humans. But I do long for their love.

Seek His Presence

But seek first the kingdom God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33

Seek the Lord while He may be found , call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6

But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all Your works. Psalm 73:28

We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of god, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8,9

Our Lord Father- Prayer

Our Lord, Father

Our Lord Father, Almighty God, who is in Heaven,

Our Almighty God, most powerful and most holy,

May Your Holy Spirit fill this earth and all its people.

Lead us to Your way in all our lives, our hearts, our minds, and our souls.

Give us food necessary for our bodies.

But Lord, what we need most is spiritual food for our minds and our spirits.

Forgive us for our many sins, failures, and the pain we caused to others,

Also the pain we caused You when we rejected You and chose our own selfish ways instead.

Help us forgive those who caused us disappointments, pain, and broken hearts.

Help us Lord, to turn away from all temptations,

 

Especially those which lead us away from Your love and Your will.

Deliver us from evil, including that which distracts us from Your love.

Deliver us from the evil that convinces us our own choices are better,

Especially when our choices are against Your Word, and Your plan for our lives.

You Lord, are the source of the real, true love which lasts forever.

You Lord, are the source of overcoming power which leads us to our victory,

Especially the victory You’ve already planned for us.

Let us stay in Your Presence, Your love, and Your will forever and ever.

Thank you Lord, for loving us in spite of our many failures, and our selfish ways.

Forgive us for all the times we rejected Your way,

Forgive us for wanting our way instead of Yours.

Help us Lord, to turn our hearts, minds, and souls completely to You,

So we may have true peace, true love, and complete joy in Your Presence.

Amen

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who is in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name.

Your kingdom come.

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. 

And forgive our debts,

As we forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

For Yours is the kingdom and the

    power and the glory forever. 

Amen

Matthew 6: 9-13

 

Abba Daddy & Baby Brat

ABBA DADDY & BABY BRAT

I’m one of Abba Daddy’s children, but I’m one of His spoiled baby brats. All throughout my life, I’ve kept my blanket and my pacifier for self- comfort. But I long to join the big boys and girls (spiritually strong) outside the nursery of life.

Picture from WordPress

Some days I’d stand at the window of the world and watch them. I do want to be like them, strong and confident. But as long as I hold on to my blanket of self-comfort and my pacifier of self-pleasure, I’ll never be able to leave my nursery. I’ll always be one of Abba Daddy’s baby brats. Will I ever grow up spiritually?

Day after day I watched and listened as they shared their experiences while in Abba Daddy’s Presence. I longed to join them. Then one day I noticed something I hadn’t seen before.

While I was laying with the blanket over my head, my hand rubbed the satin border. And as I sucked on my pacifier, I watched out the window of life. That’s when I saw.

Picture from WordPress

Suddenly I stood up, pressed my nose up against the window and dropped my blanket as I placed my hands against the window. Then my pacifier fell as I opened my mouth in surprised wonder.

My Abba Daddy’s out there with them. They get to be with Abba Daddy. I sat down, leaned against the window, and cried. Why can’t I be out there with Abba Daddy? I picked up my pacifier of self-pleasure and looked at it. Why would anyone want this nasty thing?

Then I looked at my blanket of self-comfort. When it was new, it was pretty with bright colors and it used to make me feel good. But now it’s old and faded with the stains all over it. I no longer enjoy self-comfort. I’m filled with disgust. These things keep me from being with Abba Daddy.

Tears ran down my face and my lips quivered. He turned and saw me watching Him through the window. As He walked toward the door to my soul, I got excited with anticipation. So I opened the door and waited for Abba Daddy.

Finally in walked my Abba Daddy. He picked me up and swung me around as I laughed. Then He kissed me, “How’s my little baby doing today? ”

As I hugged Him, my blanket and pacifier fell to the floor. Then I used my sweetest voice, the one I use when I want my way, “Abba Daddy, I want to be outside with You and the big children. I want to run, play, and be with You all the time.”

“Baby, I want you with Me too. But you’ll have to leave this blanket of self-comfort and this pacifier of self-pleasure in the nursery. Are you ready to let them go?”

Then I remembered how soft and comforting the blanket was and how much fun it was to suck on the pacifier. “But Daddy, I’m scared to let them go.

My blanket gives me comfort and security. And my pacifier has always given me pleasure, even if it’s dirty. So what will I have for pleasure if I let go?

I really want to be outside with you and the other children. I’m sick of this boring nursery. I want to be spiritually strong. And I long to be free, but what will I do?”

Daddy smiled at me with love in His eyes instead of disapproval, “Baby, you have Me. I want to show you a life so full of excitement and joy that you can’t even begin to comprehend. Hold on to Me when you’re afraid, I’m strong when you’re weak. So, are you willing to let go of these things? Do you trust Me?”

He’s so strong. And it felt so good to be in His arms now. “Abba Daddy, I chose you. Take me by the hand. I’m ready to grow up in Your presence now.” Then He reached for my hand. I could tell He was so proud of me. He loves me so much. And I love Him too.

We smiled at each other as He opened the door to my new world. As I stepped through the open door of His will and my destiny, I knew in my heart that no matter what happened, my Abba Daddy would always be there with me to lead me each step of the way. I was now free. Abba Daddy will always be my source of comfort and pleasure. Before now, I just never knew I had to let go in order to receive ….

CHEW ON THIS

Assuredly, I say unto you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven”….. Matthew 18:3-4 NKJV

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 NKJV

Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen 1John 5: 21 NKJV

Lord, I Want Your Love

 

Lord, I want your love. Lord, I want Your love

 

Lord, I want Your love. Help me to return to You as My first love, my greatest love. Help me to obey You in all my ways especially in dealing with other people and my food issues.

We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 

What do You want me to write? Do You even want me to write? Lord, I don’t know what it is that You want for me or with me for that matter.

And I’m so concerned about all my grandchildren, and their parents too, living in the society of today. Lord, I don’t know what I can do.

Child, pray My will be done in their lives. 

Lord, help me to only speak words of affirmation, encouragement, and of Your love for them. Keep my mouth shut, clamped shut when, or if, it is full of criticism or discouragement.

Also Lord, help me to love You in a way that it pleases You. I want a real relationship with You, not just the mechanics of routine prayers and Bible reading. In fact, I want a deep relationship with You. Overall, I want Your Presence with me at all times, throughout all my life.

Lord, I want Your love.
Lord, I want Your love.
We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 

Help me to turn away completely from this unnecessary food that so easily tempts and  entraps me to compulsively overeat.

Lord, I do want to lose weight, and I also want to help Hubby lose his extra weight too. But I don’t want him to be skinnier than me. How embarrassing that would be.

So help me to yield Myself to Thee completely and resist temptation to put my face in the feeding trough.

Child if you seek and follow My will concerning your food, you will lose weight. I will lead you and you will have success.

Also Lord, when I write my prayers, thoughts, or even the words You spoke to my heart, I always consider if this would be good to write in this blog. Lord, I want our talks to be about our relationship, not the blog. But if I am to write for the blog, then lead me and help me to organize my time schedule to write and publish.

Child, it will be so. 

Lord, I want to know You like those people who say they have a “word” from You. I want to love You like they love You. Also, I want others to see You in me and be attracted to You because of it. Help me to please You in all my ways.

We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 
Lord, I want Your love
Lord, I want Your love.
I want a deep relationship with You as I have never had before. I want a new awakening, deep with my spirit.

Make me hungry for You. Yes, I want to be hungry for You. And I want a deeper walk with You too.

Lord, what do You want from me?

Your love, My child, I want your love. 

Lord, these people who say they have a “word” from You spend hours in reading Your Word and in prayer too. I don’t have hours due to my job and my home responsibilities.

Child, it is not your hours I want. It is your heart I want. I want your love.

We love Him because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 
Lord, I want Your love.
Lord, I want Your love.
