*Free, Not Held in Bondage *

My children are to be free, not held in bondage to any one person or group, not even to their own self-inflicted bondage. I came to set My people free. Yes, free indeed. I died for your freedom from sins and theirs too.

CRAZY ALL MY LIFE

It’s been crazy all my life. What about yours? You won’t believe what happened?  Usually I weigh myself every morning, first thing, after I wake up. So this Sunday, after waking up around 3 am. I weighed myself and the scales went up two pounds. WHAT? How can that be? I don’t believe it. It can’t be, not after all that food I did not eat! No! Can’t be, It just can’t be!

Life Fasting -What’s That?

Life fasting – What’s that? A while back I read of someone going on a life-fast from sugar. To me, the dessert queen, that sounds  impossible. In fact if I decided to life-fast from sugar it’d just be setting me up for failure. After all, a wise man (woman) knows her (his) limitations.

So Lord, what do I do? How do I eat now?

My Child, haven’t I’ve told you over and over, “Look to Me, seek Me, listen and follow My instructions. Focus on My will for your food and your life too.

I Want Your Heart

I want your heart, Child

But Lord, what do You mean? I gave You my heart long ago.

Furthermore, I want your love, your heart, your soul, and your mind. 

Lord, I know You love me just as I am. So help me love You as You desire. I’m here ready to listen. I don’t have to follow my usual morning routine. As a matter of fact, I have time to listen right now. So what would You like to talk about? Is it that person? How about that event on the news? So what do You want to talk about?

Child, I want to talk about you.

Lord, what? What about me?

I want your heart. 

Lord, You know, within myself I’m not capable of loving You like You want me to. But would You help me? I am willing. Help me love You as You deserve. I give myself to thee. Do with me as You wish.

Child, don’t be afraid for it is I. And I don’t wish you harm for I have a hope and a future for you, plans to prosper you, not to harm you. 

Okay Lord, just help me please You in all I do and say. Help me to love You as You wish.

Child, I am here. 

Lord, what do You want from me?

I want to be your closest friend, your best friend, the one you confide in, the one you consult, the one you ask opinions of, the one you share your joys with, and the one you share your secrets with. I want more than just your prayer list. I’m not Santa Claus. I’m the One who loves you more than any other. And I desire to be your everything. 

Okay Lord, I want You as my best and closest friend too. Forgive me for only going to You with my prayer list, my “to do” list for You. Help me to make You my everything, my all, my closest ally. Let me find more pleasure in Your Presence versus my food pleasures, entertainment pleasures,  more than all my stuff, and even more than my family and friends.  Lord, You be my greatest pleasure and my everything. Help me to love You as You desire. You be the “head” of all my life. Help me to make You first in all and everything in my life.

Child, I want to be more than a way to reach your goals and your dreams. I want your heart and all your love. 

Of course Lord, I love You. Help me to love You as You long for me to. Overall. I want to please You with all that I am or will ever be. Thank you for loving me.

Lord, What’s Your Will?

Lord, You know all and see all. So help me become  what You want me to be. I realized I’ve wasted too much time watching Hallmark movies and ate too many Christmas treats during the holidays. I know You do have a purpose and a plan for me. Help me find that purpose, Your plan.

Cooked these in December – Glad they’re gone Now- No, I didn’t eat them all. Took some to family gatherings and gave some away too.

Semi-Fasting – Help Me Understand.

Semi-fasting – Lord, help me understand. For one thing, why am I not losing weight? Given that I’ve only been eating one main meal a day for several days now, I should be losing weight. But I’m at a standstill. In fact I haven’t lost any weight? Why? I did drink milk for breakfast and have soup for the remaining meal. Those scales are staying the same.  Lord, I do want to lose weight and it’s just not happening. Help me understand what is going on with my body. Continue reading Semi-Fasting – Help Me Understand.
