Your Beauty be seen in me. Let my spiritual wisdom increase.
Help me Lord
Jesus to "Lookup" to You. Let me not be full of self, but full
of You, so others may see You in me.
Let me not
remember what You (Lord) have already forgotten.
Lord help me
always to be a Blessing to others.
Jesus let my
mind & heart dwell continually on this scripture: ( Philippians 4:8 -
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are
honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever
things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report: if there be any
virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.)
I ask you to
forgive me for all the times in the past that I have had evil thoughts

were Real - the Tears of God - when He wept over Jerusalem. What about our
concern for a needy world? Do we have compassion that brings us to tears?
Do you have "seeing eyes" & a "weeping heart" as
you behold the people living in your "city"?
Help me to see
God & not the circumstances. Let me keep my eyes on God; not

thanksgiving to The Lord - not just blessing the food. During the meal
make only positive, uplifting conversation with others.
I pray Lord to
be always glad in You. Give me Your Holy Spirit Jesus; Your Joy makes me
glad spiritually. I do not want to depend on "worldly goods" to
make me happy. Thank you Jesus for filling me each day with Your Holy

I pray for The
Holy Spirit to come into me & save me.
Bless this food & drink with Your Own Holy Spirit, and let it transmit
Your Holy Spirit to my flesh, so that Your Holy Spirit can speak through
me and walk in me. In Your Name I pray. Amen.
We cannot go to
Heaven without The Holy Spirit, that is why Jesus came to Earth, to give
us The Holy Spirit.
Why do I love
You, Jesus? Because You are Goodness itself. I Love You not because of
what You do; but because of Your qualities - Gentle, Meek, Kind, Loving,
As we follow
Jesus, keeping our eyes on Him, He provides for & protects us. To
follow Him (Jesus) we must take our eyes off our feet, (our lower, lowest
understanding) & follow Him with our eyes (spiritual understanding).
Trust Jesus at
all times. Hang tightly to Him when you're going through a
"spiritual" carlsbad cavern experience.

use, but insignificant as it may seem, placed in God's Hands it can become
a blessing to multitudes.

submit our wills & ways to God. This is not easy. But great blessing
comes in returning & submitting.
Jesus I ask You
to cleanse me of every evil spirit & give me Spiritual Wisdom to meet
this responsibility you have given me. I know that You have heard my
prayer & are now sending Holy Angels to strengthen me spiritually.
As He moves
upon our lives through trials, the result is Gold. "We are receiving
exactly what we would request if we could see as God sees."
Why did God
make Heaven? So that we might live in eternal Joy. As you live through
trials, adversities, heartaches while you are alive on earth; you must do
so with Joy so that you will be Joyful when you draw your last breath
here. Joyful = Joyland.
Let the fresh
seed of the Gospel get into the Soul, so that the warmth of God's Love can
nurture it, to bring forth new life.
conforms to the shape of mold into which it is poured. Similarly the heat
of adversity may be necessary to soften the hard places in our lives so
that we may be conformed to the image of Jesus.
Mary found a
resting place, a place of fellowship with Him, a place to Hear His Voice,
a place of instruction. Sitting at His Feet we listen to Him, Love Him,
finding peace & refreshment. "Come unto me all ye that labour and
are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:28) What does
this mean? A little girl answered: "It means He wants me."
He may not
deliver us from our problems, but He will go through them with us, and in
His time and way He will deliver us out of them.
trying to convince others of the value of our insight, we can become quite
invasive. The others may not be where we are "at" on the journey
of life. We need to relate in a non-invasive way. Teach us God, to deal
gently and respectfully with our neighbors, as Jesus did.
The source of
true Joy is The Lord Himself. Peaceful circumstances do not bring true
joy, but the joy of The Lord is constant and enduring day after day,
regardless of the circumstances about us.

must have it to get to Heaven, as well as the other fruits of the spirit.
There is no room for doubt. Be a little child standing on a table
and the daddy tells the child to jump and he will catch them. The child
trusts the daddy to catch them. God wants us to just Trust Him and jump
into His Arms. Just Trust Him and leave every detail to Him. He knows much
more than we ever will; even if we studied for trillions of years.
Jesus Loves You
- means this spiritually - The Truths of Love protect you. (If you
have the Holy Spirit in you)
The battle is
Every time you
sin, you are nailing Jesus to the cross, Stop sinning!
The cross is
the reminder and symbol that Jesus Loves You.
To understand The
Glory of God is to understand His Divine Goodness: as He blesses,
preserves, Loves, envelopes you with His protection of Goodness.
If you want to
understand God better think of:
God showed me
these Scriptures today:
Ps 27:1 - The
Lord is my Light and my Salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the
Strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Ps 27:13 - I
would have lost heart; unless I had believed that I would see the Goodness
of The Lord in the Land of the Living.
Ps 27:14 - Wait
on The Lord; be of good courage, and He shall Strengthen your heart. Wait,
I say, on The Lord!
Keep a song in
your heart. Singing gives you inward Joy and drives out evil spirits.

If our lives
were but more simple, we should take Him at His Word; and our lives would
be all sunshine in the sweetness of Our Lord.

Rejoice for The

Give God Thanks
for His acceptance of us just as we are. As we respond in simple faith to
Him, we will find "all that we need," not only for our personal
salvation, but also for the particular place of service that He has for
"I AM the Way Out!"
When you forgive someone, you remove from them evil thoughts that have
been transmitted to them by you. Unless you forgive others, you cannot be
forgiven by Jesus. Jesus will give
you all things
but you must first remove all bitterness & anger against others who
have wronged you.
Saving Faith is
more than a commitment to a church, doctrine or creed. It is a
personal commitment to Jesus Christ.

The story of
Martha the worker and Mary the worshiper (Luke 10:38-42) illustrates an
important spiritual principle. We please our Lord most when we learn to
sit at His Feet in adoration and worship before trying to serve Him in our
own strength. Sitting implies our humble dependence on Him and a sense of
quietness of soul that indicates our willingness to hear. We can become so
busy with life's pursuits, even worthy Christian activities, that we do
not hear the still small Voice of God.
