Child, focus on My Presence. Fall in love with Me again. You’ve lost your first love experience with Me. Return to My loving Presence. Then watch and see what I’ll do in your life.

Deliver Me From Myself
Lord, deliver me from myself and my stupid ways. Sometimes I’m my own worst enemy.
I will teach you, Child, how to be a successful overcomer, and how to achieve your personal victory. But first, focus on your submission, for submission is your key to victory and success.
Lord, help me to turn completely to You in all my ways, with a yielded heart before You. Fill me with an increased desire for more of You, the sweetness and the glory of Your Presence.
Lord, I want to be able to stand, or rather kneel, before you with a clean heart and a yielded submissive spirit before You. Renew my mind so that it seeks Your will in all my ways, actions, and words, even to what I eat.
In fact, deliver me from myself, full and bloated with my selfishness.
Lord, I ask for a new heart and a new spirit. I can accomplish nothing in my own power. Therefore I ask for more of Your Holy Spirit and Your power to resist temptations that come before me.
Lord, forgive me for I am a sinner. Help me to turn away from my wicked, selfish sins. Then help me to turn to You with a yielded heart and spirit.
Renew my mind and fill me with a desire for more of You and Your Word.
Child, My Word is how your mind gets renewed. It is My Word that destroys the power of the enemy, even your enemies of selfishness and pride, especially pride in your self-sufficiently.
You can never win over self. But I can help you win.
Come to Me and I will help you cross the finish line to your victory. I am the winner and I always win. Because I am Victory.
So come to Me, into My Presence with a yielded heart. And I will grant you a new heart, a clean heart, and a renewed mind.
Do you not think I can cleanse your mind from all the lies of the mind blinding spirit? The truth, My truth, My Word will set you free, not the words of others, but My Word. So Seek My Word for your truth.
Yes Sir. Help me to do so.
Child, come to Me and into My Presence. Then I will give unto you all the strength and power you need to become an overcomer who walks and breathes in total victory. For I AM total victory.
Thank you Sir. Here I am before You. Deliver me from myself. Cleanse me, make me into what You desire for me to be.

God Wants Relationship
God wants a relationship with you. The greatest desire of His heart is to have a relationship with you. Yes, YOU.
Below is one of my early morning conversations with Him about our relationship.
But know this, what He speaks to my heart, He also means the same for you. In fact, He loves you more than you can ever know. And He will even use your own weight loss struggles to reach your heart.
Child, I’m calling you unto Myself. I’m calling you unto Me. Your relationship with Me is more important versus any “work” you could do for Me. What I desire most is your heart toward Me.
Yes Sir. Help me Lord to love You as You desire. Help me to obey You in all things.
Child, I will lead you as you seek Me.
Thank you Lord for the weight loss in spite of the cake I ate last night.
Child, you’re thinking too small. Just as the story of the lottery winner who said, “Now I can buy a double wide”, you’re thinking too small. Now come unto Me and I will fill your mind with possibilities.
I will renew your mind and make it Mine. So come to Me and let go of all that stubble. I’ll show you what’s most important. I will show you great and mighty things.
Yes Sir. Is my prayer list okay?
Yes, but I’d rather converse with you versus hearing your rote list. Although I do realize lists help you stay focused. So it’s alright. What’s most important to Me is our relationship together.
Yes Sir. Help me to please You in all my ways, actions, words, thoughts, and even my food choices.
Child, what you need is a vacation. But more than a trip, your mind needs to rest in My Presence. That’s where your strength comes from, My Presence. So come to Me for I have much to say to you.
And Child, My words will be more encouraging than any other words you could hear. Allow Me to speak to your heart and mind. Allow Me to fill you with My encouragement.
Obey Me in this and you’ll see a great turnaround in your life.
Let go of all else and come to Me. Then watch and see what I do in your life. Because I do have great plans for you, plans for a hope and a future.
God Wants Relationship
The words He speaks to me also applies to you as well. In fact, God is no respecter of persons. What He means for one, goes the same for all His children. Seek His Presence today. You’ll never regret it. You will find joy and peace in His Presence.

Victory in 2023
Lord, we need victory in 2023. We, the people of USA, are weary of this constant bad news everyday concerning the bad decisions by our government. It seems, or rather, it looks like their purpose is to destroy the USA.
Now they’re telling us that we need to stop cooking with gas stoves. What? They’re saying electric stoves are safer for our health and the environment.. What?
We the people suffer because of their decisions. And we feel like sheep without a shepherd. Therefore we are a discouraged, overwhelmed, concerned people.
Lord, we need to know Your Presence is with us.
Lord, grant us a leader that will lead us according to Your will. As a matter of fact, we need many leaders like King David who had a heart for You.
So Lord, grant us many leaders, many “David’s” throughout our land to lead us, the people back to You. Place a “David-like” leader in every position of our government.
Overall Lord, what we really need is more of You. We need Your Presence desperately. Would You reach down in Your power to help save this USA? Only You could bring us victory in 2023, only You.
Child, I have great plans you know nothing of. So trust Me, for I will work out all things for good, the good of My people, the good of My USA, and Israel too. Watch and see what I will do and I am doing now.
You will see a turn of great winds. And I can turn nations and leaders around as well. Nothing is greater than I and no one has more power than I. Child, I can change things in one day. Yes, one day.
Praise Me for the victory. Because victory is what I’ve planned, not the “woe is me” I hear now from the people. “Victory is Mine”, saith the Lord. As a matter of fact, defeat is not in My vocabulary.
So watch and see how I win this war against Me, for I will win. And I declare Myself the winner too, for I always win. My victory has always been and will always be according to My plan and its results.
So look up for your redemption draws nigh.
Now child, watch and see what I do. Celebrate My victory. Rejoice and praise Me for I do indeed work out all things for the good of those who love Me and whom I love.
So look up My child. Victory is on the horizon. It is coming. In fact, it’s been ordained and destined by My Word. So rejoice over My victory.
Now don’t look at what you see. Instead look at Me. For I say, “Victory is Mine.”
Thank you Lord. My hope is in You.
Hope for Victory

Lord, will I ever achieve a life of victory? Continue reading A Life of Victory
Seek My Wisdom
Child, I say to you again, “Seek My wisdom. turn your eyes toward Me.”
Lord, when I cried out to You back in 2013, You ministered to me. And You spoke to my heart, “I Am your counselor, come to Me.” Continue reading Seek My Wisdom
Sidetracked and Distracted
Lord, I got sidetracked and distracted again. Also it seems I pray the same prayers and sing the same songs over and over. Meanwhile, I’m working so hard to get all this “to do” list done. But I can’t seem to finish it. Help me find Your will.
Meanwhile I’ve tried to work this program successfully. But occasionally, I messed up and fell on my face. Sometimes I fell in the feeding trough, only to emerge bloated and defeated. Help me find Your will.
Lord, it seems like it’s been a long time since I was overwhelmed by Your Presence. I’ve left You out, because everything else has me sidetracked and distracted.
Can You help me overcome this confusion and live a victorious life, full of Your Presence with joy and peace? Lord, I have no answers. And it seems I’m always busy, too busy for any joy in my life.
My Child, seek My voice. Seek My Presence for I am your answer. No program can replace My power in your life. But as you come to Me, I will help you. Because it’s always been My intent to give you victory.
Child, I want you totally dependent on Me. Surrender your will and allow Me to guide your every step, your every word, and your every bite. Therein, you will have your victory.
Lord, I have so many dreams, thoughts, and plans. Because I get sidetracked and distracted, none are completed. I just go through my day busy as I can be. So busy, busy all the time. How can I get it all done?
First of all, My Child, focus on Me, seek My voice and seek My will for every moment of your day. Remember when you used to focus on My Presence even when you were in meetings. I was always there by your side. You knew I was with you then.
Your plans are of no avail, just busy work. You’ve been running and running through your life. I’ve been calling on your heart. But you’ve focused more on your “to do” list versus seeking My Presence.
Oh Lord, please forgive me. In the evenings, exhaustion comes. Then I forget Your words of victory. So it’s easy to slip into my old habits of snacking until I fall asleep in my chair.
Child, know I am with you. I will lead you as you surrender to Me your life and your will. As you seek Me, I will lead you one day at a time, one moment at a time. When you are weak and tired, go to bed. Before you close your eyes, praise Me for your victories.
My Child, My plans for you are victory. They are not for your busyness. In fact, it is in your returning and resting in My Presence that will bring your victory over all.

Spend Time With Me, Child.
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.
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.

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
