Your Word

—– You also gave Your good Spirit to instruct them. And did not withhold Your manna from their mouths. . . . . . . . .                                  Nehemiah 9:20 NKJV

Lord, I want Your Holy Spirit to instruct me and I also want to “feed” on Your heavenly manna!

( Then eat of My Word, My child. If you eat of My Word then you will be “full” of My heavenly manna!)

——How sweet are Your Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!           Psalm 119:103 NKJV

Oh Lord, thank you! I didn’t know that Your Word was our “manna” today. The Israelites in the desert had Your manna, which was a sweet wafer like a bread. But today we have Your Word, which we should consider “sweet” but it seems that today no one wants to read Your Word. We are all on our computers or our cell phones. I am guilty myself of choosing to play on my toy of technology. Lord, I ask for forgiveness each time that I chose my toy over Your Word.

—–  Direct my steps by Your Word. And let no iniquity have dominion over me.          Psalm 119:133 NKJV

——Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way. Establish Your Word to Your servant, who is  devoted to fearing You.   Psalm 119: 36-38 NKJV

Lord, fill me with the desire to eat from Your Word and not eat from the abundance of  earthly pleasures in the kitchen, in the restaurants, or in the market. But rather Lord, let me be full of a desire for You and Your Word.

—-I have not departed from the commandments of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food. Job 23:12 NKJV

(My child, if you will feed from My Word, My heavenly manna, your physical body will decrease and your spiritual body, your soul will increase. I will fill you with Myself and you will be full forevermore.)

Oh yes Lord, I desire to be “full” of You, of Your Holy Spirit, and of Your Word! Fill me with Yourself! I am Yours, do with me as You wish!

(Come here, My child. Sit with Me! Behold I come unto you with My Presence. Allow Me to satiate your soul!)

—- For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul. Jeremiah 31:25 NKJV


Birthday Cake, my favorite!

Thank you Lord that I didn’t put my face in the feeding trough yesterday. It would have been so easy, birthday cake was left here from the party and I could have easily eaten half of it! Thank you Lord for saving me from myself and my fleshly desires for more and more of cake!

Lord, I was so exhausted from working so hard to prepare for the family gathering, birthday celebration. I know from experience that when I am physically tired, it makes me so weak to temptation and then the temptation grows stronger. But You brought me through Lord! You were with me and helped me resist the temptation to become gluttonous. In the past I have used food to relax after a stressful day, and now Lord, I need You to help me relax and be my comfort, not the food.

—- And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,  for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon  me. . . . For when I am weak, then I am strong.   2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NKJV

[A couple of hours later. . .]          Lord, I ended up taking a nap and that was exactly what I needed. Isn’t it interesting when what we really need is rest, the food calls us to eat and eat? I can’t help but wonder, could ‘Eve’ have just been really tired when she ate that forbidden fruit? It is so easy to give in to temptation when I am so extremely tired. Thank you Lord, for holding me in Your arms when I was so exhausted and keeping me out of the kitchen! The nap was exactly what I needed. Thank you!

(My child, I know exactly what you need when you need it. I am your provider, even of naps when that is what you need. Abundance of food will not satisfy the needs of your heart and soul. Instead, I will nourish your heart and your soul. Your body will also be healthier when you feed  My word and My Presence.)

Be still and know that I am God. . . .         Psalm 46:10 NKJV

(My child, know this – I am with you when you work hard, when you rest, and especially in the midst of temptation. I know that sometimes it  seems that the temptation is so very strong as it tries to convince you and pull you into its trap, but I AM stronger and I AM with you! Look to Me for your source of strength, your source of rest, and your source of comfort. For I AM the supply of ALL that you need.)

For I will [fully] satisfy the weary soul, and I will replenish every languishing and sorrowful person.            Jeremiah 31:25 AMP

Those who feel tired and worn out will find new life and energy.              Jeremiah 31:25 Contemporary English Version

The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer Him sacrifices. Proverbs 21:3 NLT

( I love you, My child, and I am for you.)

I love You too, My Lord! Help me to honor You in all that I do. I give myself to thee, do with me as You wish!


“Well Lord, here I am again! Right back where I started! Lord, after a whole week of obedience, I blow it big time! I ate some cookies before bed, then after being asleep for a few hours, I woke up and finished the leftover chicken salad with some crackers! Now, here I am again, in Your Presence Lord, with crumbs from my sin all over my face! When will it ever stop? Is there any hope for me?” Continue reading BACK TO START AGAIN!!
