Lord, will I ever achieve a life of victory? Continue reading A Life of Victory
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
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.
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.
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.

For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” . . . Isaiah 30:16 NKJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says r back from your captivity. . . . Jeremiah 29: 11-14 NKJV
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.

. . . Let the weak say, “I am strong.” Joel 3:10
In the day I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul. Psalms 138:3
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8 : 38,39
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
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.
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.
So come to Me and I will give you rest.
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 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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
