Just open your eyes to what I AM doing. As you look, you’ll behold My power working throughout Earth.
Remember when that child laid his hand on your shoulder to pray for you? That was one of My miracles. Consider how I moved- a young child praying at the altar for a grandmother who was praying for her grandchildren. Now that, My child, is a miracle. Two hearts of different generations praying for each other at the altar. That is a miracle indeed.
Now this day open your eyes and look for My miracles and My Presence working in different lives. And thank Me for each victory you see. Expect many victories coming forth for I will have My way and I always win. I AM the winner over and above all. Now watch and see what I will do.
Much is coming forth, miracles, signs, wonders, and revelations of the truth. In fact, I will recognized as the winner over all others. My kingdom will come and My “Will” will be done on Earth as in Heaven. So watch and see what I will do. If you open your eyes, you will see My miracles everywhere you look.
Yes Sir. Thank you Lord. Help me to praise You all throughout my life. Thank you for talking to me to encourage me when I get overwhelmed by all the news.
How many times, My child, do I have to remind you, “Don’t look at what you see, especially in your so-called news. But instead, look to Me. Keep your eyes looking to Me.”
Yes Sir. Thank you for reminding me. I love You.
I love you too, My child. In fact, I love all of My children.
OPEN YOUR EYES AND PRAY:
Our Father 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 us 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.
Child, remember I’m not a performance based God. Rather, I am a loved based God. And I love you just as you are, warts and all. You’re too hard on yourself. Yes, you strive too much, you worry too much, and you self-criticize too much.
Child, just focus on worship and praise. Then all will fall into place as it should, for I am in charge of all things. And I \AM working out all things for your good and My glory.
Trust Me in all things. Then watch and see what I will do. After all, I split the Red Sea for the Israelites to walk through. Do you think the issues in your life are bigger than the Red Sea?
Then trust Me. Thank Me for what you see that I am doing. Also thank Me for what you don’t see I am doing for I AM working out all things for the good according to My will.
Even when mankind go their own way to do their own thing according to their free will to choose, I still turn things around. I still work out all things for the good of those who love Me.
But Lord, what about those who are tortured and killed because they chose You?
I am with them giving them strength to make it through their hardships. Then I take them home to be with Me. Their rewards are great. In fact their rewards are greater than you can know or imagine. In fact I am with them through it all.
Know this, it is the enemy who comes to kill, steal, and destroy. But I have come to give new life and abundant life. So trust Me.
Everyday there are miracles. Just open your eyes to see them. As you look, you will behold My power working throughout the Earth.
Now quit criticizing yourself so much. Remember, I am not a performance based God. Instead I am a love based God. And My love is greater than you can imagine.

Today is your “seeking day”. Seek My will and seek My Presence. I know you’ll be talking to others, but focus on talking to Me today, all throughout your day.
Lord, this is such a struggle. It’s an ongoing battle, a major struggle in my life. In fact, it seems I can’t ever win.
Child, victories only come through struggles and battles. There’s never a victory without a battle.
But Lord, it seems like there’s a war inside of me and I can’t ever win.
My Child, you can win, for you are a winner. After all, you are Mine and all of Mine win. Because I always win. Therefore you win.
But Lord, right now I feel like a loser, defeated before all to see, especially myself. I see myself as a loser.
So My child, quit looking at what you see. Now look to Me, so you can see what I see. For you, My Child, are strong and victorious.
But Lord, I start out my day strong. Then by night fall I’m weak and defeated.
Then change My child, change your pattern of life.
How can I? When I wake up, the house is quiet and I can hear Your voice clearly. But in the evening I am tired, the TV is blaring, news is depressing and I fall asleep in my chair. How can I change this pattern?
Child, make today your “Seeking Day”. You’ve been listening to many voices throughout your day. On this “seeking day”, shut off all other voices and settle yourself in. Seek My voice. Seek My Presence and you will have peace. When I am on your side, you are a winner. It is so for I have declared it so.
Words From Seeking Day
The Lord will always deliver me from all evil and will bring me into His heavenly Kingdom . . . 2 Timothy 4:18 TLB
. . . God, who began the good work within you will keep right on helping you grow in His grace until His task within you is finally finished on that day when Jesus Christ returns. Philippians 1:6 TLB
Nevertheless, I am continually with You; You have taken hold me of my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to honor and glory. Psalms 73:23-24 AMP
Child, surrender is the key to victory and prosperity. As you surrender yourself, your heart, your dreams, and your desires I will bless you.
Lord, I don’t know what to write.
Child, I’ll give you the words to speak, but first you must surrender all. You must feed yourself . Before you can help others, you must first feed yourself My Word and My Presence first.
Just as on a plane, the parent should put on their oxygen mask first. Then put the mask on the child next. So feed yourself and take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit.
Take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit, My Presence first, and before all else. Then you can help others.
Feed on My Word and My Presence. Then you will receive power to defeat your enemies, especially your greatest enemy, Satan.
After all, his desire is to keep you defeated and discouraged. So feed on My Word and My Presence, My Holy Spirit, therein you will find power.
Now Child, clean up your own backyard, your eating habits, your heart, and your attitudes. Quit worrying about the future. Take one day at a time, one day.
Make it your goal to seek My will and then follow My will. For what good is it if you ask for advice and then never follow it?
So your focus should be surrender first. Then look to Me for your instructions. Next, follow how I lead you. Surrender is the key to your victory and a successful life of victory.
Look to Me and listen for instructions.
Follow, trust, and obey how I lead you.
Your job is not a quota. Your job is surrender. That’s your focus, surrender, the first key to unlock your victory.
Child, keep your eyes on Me and your heart surrendered to me. Let go of all that is in your hand. Then open your hand to receive what I have for you. It’s beyond your expectation. Keep your eyes on Me.
Child, as you surrender to My will (especially your food), I will make you stronger. As you let go, I will increase your strength. Now let go.
Let go of it all and come before Me, completely surrendered and empty of all that clutters your heart, and your mind. Allow Me to fill you with Myself.
Quit wishing for more time and accomplish what I tell you to do, in the time I give you. I will give you all the time you need to accomplish all, all the tasks I assign you.
Seek My will each day. Then watch and see what I will do with your time. I can multiply it.
Your key to success is surrender. So therefore, surrender your self and all you are, all your dreams, desires, and wishes. Surrender your all to Me. Then watch and see what I do.
So quit trying to figure everything out. Just focus on surrender, As you take each step in surrender, I will lead you to your own personal victory.
Child, quit trying on your own. Give it all to Me.
Yes sir. Lord, take it. Take me. I give myself to thee. Do with me as your wish.
Child, do not fear for I am with you
Surrender is the Key
Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always. Psalms 105:4
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8
Child, turn your focus back to Me. Seek My Presence. You’ve asked for a quiet, still life. and yes, that’s nice. But you can have My Presence even in the mist of extreme busyness. Do you think only those with “quiet, still lives” experience My Presence?
Not so, it’s those who seek Me even in the midst of their extreme busy lives. Know that I am with those who seek Me. So, if you miss My Presence, it is not I who left. Rather, it was you who turned your eyes to other things.
Even good things are useless if they cause you to divert your eyes from My love. It’s called “busy work”. Satan loves busy work. Because it keeps you so occupied that you focus on the task or whatever it is at hand and turn your eyes, your attention, even your heart from seeking My Presence.
So Lord, how do I correct this?
Turn to Me, seek My Presence, seek My opinion, and seek My advice. In general, talk to Me about everything in your life.
Okay Lord. But what about my weight?
Ahhhh . . . another issue. Again I tell you seek My advice. Stop before you eat anything, even the foods you consider healthy. Stop first and seek My advice before eating anything. Then watch and see what I will do. This is nothing new to you. We’ve done this routine before.
Yes Lord, we have. But I backslid. Now look at me, a backslider.
Child, stop. Now you aren’t looking at Me. Rather, you are looking at yourself. Didn’t I just say “Keep your eyes on Me, seek My advice, then watch and see what I will do?”
Yes Sir. So what about my eating plan for today?
It is good.
Lord, what about tonight? What’s your will for me tonight? Do I go visit my friend? Should I go shopping instead? Should I call her? Lord, what do I do? Where do I go?
Child, I will lead you. You’re concerned about too many things. Your main job is to focus on Me. Seek My Presence first, over and above all else.
Okay Lord, lead me. Help me to please You in all I do, all I say, all I think, and even what I eat. Renew my heart and my mind. Make them Yours. Help me focus on what You want me to focus on- Your will and Your love.

“Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord, “and not a God far off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not see him?” says the Lord. . . Jeremiah 23:23,24
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power. They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles. They will run and not become weary, they will walk and not grow tired. Isaiah 40:31 AMP
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
Seek Your face, how Lord? What does it mean to ‘seek Your face’? I want to seek Your face, but I’m not sure how. Does this mean actually see Your face? Or does it mean seek Your companionship or to bond in friendship? What does it mean?
It means ‘commune’ with Me.
[Commune: to focus on God- converse, talk often with profound intensity, intimate communication or rapport as sharing your heart and mind with God in prayer- an interchange of ideas or sentiments.]
Lord, I want to commune with You. I want You as my very best friend. And I want to please You in all things.
At times I try to follow Your leading, but due to distractions and the voices of others who tell me what to do, I miss out on Your best for me.
Help me to listen and focus on Your voice. Not because I’m trying to be holy and religion, or better than others, but because I want what’s best for me. Your will is best for me. So, in a way could seeking Your will, which is best for me, be selfish?
No Child, I want to give the ‘best’ to all My children. And it pleases Me when they humble their own pride to seek My will for them. After all, this is the ‘best’ for them.
My will is always the ‘best’.
Also, I enjoy rewarding My children with the ‘best’ just as you enjoy giving to yours. My desire is to bless My children with My love.
If only they would seek My face and bond with Me in intimate companionship-friendship. They would never be separated, living their lives in constant communion -interaction, allowing My Presence to interact with them in constant interchange of covenant.
Lord, I want covenant with You.
Child, I want you, and all of your family, friends, and associates too. My desire is to commune and covenant with all people.
And it’s the distractions and the voices of others that cause My people to miss what is My best for them.
If My people would focus on a relationship with Me and humble themselves, which means seek My advice, seek My will and follow it, then I would heal their land.
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2Chronicles 7:14
But Lord, how do I seek Your face?
Talk with Me, even while eating and drinking you can be in My Presence. Invite Me to be involved in all you do, say, and even to what you think. Invite Me to be with you all throughout your day, within all you do. Throughout your day, interact with Me. I am real, not an imaginary friend, but real, more real than you’ll ever know.
Overall, it’s My desire to be involved in every detail of your life, even within your thoughts. So invite Me in to be with you. Seek My will and My advice about everything in your life, even about what you eat and drink. Then follow how I lead you. Then follow My advice.
Seek My face. Seek a relationship with Me and My involvement in every detail of your life. As you seek My involvement in all your activities and even your thoughts, then I can intervene for you. As you open your life, then I can bless you with My peace and My joy and My victory too.
Not only do I give peace and joy, but I will grant you victory to overcome the difficulties of life. No matter the circumstances or difficulties, I will always bring those who belong to Me through it all to finish in victory. I always bring those who belong to Me to victory. After all, I AM VICTORY.
For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs. Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
