Lord, once again I thank you for the beautiful weather today and the chance I have to observe it while I spend time with you. To think that you could speak all of this into existence; that you are so big and so powerful and yet you take time to speak to me…. just one of your millions of children, is mind boggling. Wow! Thank you Lord! And now, as I sit here, I ask that you would speak again. Teach me another of your truths. Reveal to me a secret of your kingdom that I’ve not known before. You are so awesome and I long to know you more.

Even Jesus faced uncertainty. Just like you, he didn’t have a map laid out before him so that he would know what he would be doing three weeks from now. Remember, my Word says that the Spirit led him into the desert…. so yes, even he knows what it is like to wonder what my will is. But the key is that he took ONE DAY AT A TIME. He just simply went and did what the Spirit led him to do and did not worry about what he would be doing in two days or two weeks or two years. He had faith that I was directing his every day path and that that would eventually lead to the fulfillment of my calling on his life. Realize, Laura, that as long as you seek me, every piece of every day and every person you come in contact with is part of my plan. Even the mundane, every day stuff is part of my will for your life. I put you in YOUR family, in YOUR church, in YOUR city, in YOUR school, in YOUR classes… even at YOUR doctors office, and at YOUR  grocery store at the times I want you there. Do not underestimate the power of my presence in you to touch the lives of those you are around or my power to prepare you for the long-term calling I have placed on your life. This is what the scripture, Philippians 4:6 is talking about when it says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Trusting me whole-heartedly…. that I am leading you every minute of every day, every place you go.


The New Me



Thank you for opening my eyes to see a new truth tonight, that YOU BELIEVE IN ME! Lord, I’ve been taught all my life that I’m unworthy, a nobody, a screw-up, and why would you want to use someone like that? What I need to remember is that that was the OLD me. I am sanctified by you! Thank you Lord!

Now that you realize this, you need to act on it and share it with the people around you. To many Christian, like you, have studied my word and gone to church all of their lives but don’t understand this. But I’ll warn you… pray that you will speak this message with the anointing of my spirit; that this truth will cut deeper than a two-edged sword, piercing the darkness; letting the truth pour through.
