The Road Ahead

Image

Lord, thank you for a peaceful nights sleep and for letting me drink from your healing waters again.

Thank you for trying so hard on your studies. You have learned the discipline of endurance and perseverance through your years of school and it will serve you well down the road. Do not be afraid of what lies ahead. I know it seems uncertain in your eyes, but trust me, it is not. Doors WILL  open and you WILL walk through them in your perfect timing if you will continue holding my hand. I love you and will NEVER let you go.

Thank you Lord. You are so good to me!

Intimacy

Image I love you, Lord. Thank you for illuminating Your Word to me so I can see that it is okay to get homesick for heaven as long as I am willing to stay here and reach those that you have called me to.

Lord, I am not sure exactly what your will for me is, but wherever and whatever it is, I am willing to follow you. Whether I am to do the things I feel you want me to do right now or something completely different, I am wiling. I only ask that you will open the doors, help me to see them, and give me the courage to walk right through them. I love you, Lord, and the thought of going to Africa to share your Good News and take care of your children makes me so excited! Thank you for guiding my steps and preparing me for the road that you have laid before me.

I love you too, Laura. You need to trust me with your future. Just as I have told you before… I am in control as long as you keep this attitude of humility, love, and openness, you will not miss my calling or disappoint me or miss my calling. Laura, it is right and natural for you to get homesick for heaven. It is part of your nature to want to be with those you love, and I know you love me, but do not forget… you do not have to wait until you get to heaven. i am with you right now.

I know, Lord, but it is that tangible, face-to-faced encounter that I can not wait for; to look into your eyes, to touch your hair, to lay my head on your chest, sounds so wonderful. I long for that day. Please, Lord, in the mean time, let me know you as intimately as possible while I am still on this earth. Please, Lord, teach me to love, to truly love as you do.

This intimate relationship you ask for is the desire of my heart. Your fellowship and friendship is what this relationship is all about. It is your primary reason for living and everything else should flow out of it. If you can learn this principle and apply it to your life at this young age, you will be able to accomplish so much for me and the two of us will be the best of friends. I, too, long to have you with me and feel your touch, but together we must wait, for there are many others you must bring with you when you come.

Praise

Image

Laura, would you let me take this doubt from your mind?This is why praise is so important. When you declare my goodness, when you declare my faithfulness, when you declare my love, it dispels doubt and fear. It helps you to have faith, to trust me, and to depend on me.

These years of tears, pain, and intercession are much like the labor pains of a woman about to give birth. Though the pain and tears last for the night, my joy comes in the morning. The labor is worth it. New life will be born. My child will come home.

Laura, don’t forget that I understand your weaknesses and I am not angry with you when you mess up. I love you and all I ask is that you come to me to ask for forgiveness when you make mistakes. Seek me and you fill find me to be true. Do not cower and hide in your sin and disgrace. Come to me so I can remove it! I have felt your pain. I have carried your weights. I am with you every minute of every day. It is up to you though, to lean on me for strength and to give me those burdens that are too heavy to bear. Trust me Laura! I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU!

Learning

Thank you, Lord, for teaching me again. I have learned something new in your word for each of the last 3 days and find that exciting.Please continue to show me new things each day as I continue to seek you.

Laura, I delight in showing myself to you and in teaching you new things. It’s like how you love to give Katrina and Mercy gifts and teach them something new. I am the same way. I get excited to see you lay burdens down and pick up new gifts.I love to see your eyes light up when you learn something new.

When you hold onto bondage, it hurts me though. Just like you’ve told your dad and Randy that it hurts you to see them hurt. Imagine how it is for me. I love you way more than you’ll ever love either one of them. So the next time I prompt you, please let go of your burdens and accept the gifts I’m trying to give you.

Laura,

Would you let me take this doubt from your mind? This is why praise is so important. When you declare my goodness, when you declare my faithfulness, when you declare my love, it dispels doubt and fear.

These years of pain, tears, and intercession are much like the labor pains of a woman. Though the pain and tears last for the night, my joy comes in the morning. The pain is worth it. New life will be born. The person you are praying for will come home to me.

I thank you, Lord, for every victory that was won through my prayers tonight. Thank you, Lord, for freedom.

Laura, don’t forget that I understand your weaknesses and I am not angry with you when you mess up. I love you. All that I ask is that you come to me and ask for forgiveness when you mess up. Seek me and you will find me true. Don’t cower in your sin and disgrace. Come to me so I can remove it. I have felt your pain. I have carried your weights. I am with you every minute of every day. It is up to you, though, to lean on me for strength and to give me those burdens that are too heavy to bear. Trust me Laura. I love you! I LOVE YOU! I love you!
