Minimal Effective Dose Reached–HALLELUJAH!!!

glimpse of heaven

Abba,

YOU. ARE. (I pause in Your Presence…) O Holy, Radiant, Exalted One, Most High, Creator of all Universes ever in existence, Being without end or beginning, Your Glory is incomparable and unexplainable. Your ways are so infinitely beyond our ways. Your timing is impeccable perfection. Your guidance and Presence are more magnificent than an entire planet made of sparkling diamonds. Your Heavenly Sanctuary is the only place worth being.

I confess that I have lived 34 (of my 38) years “knowing” You, yet barely knowing You at all. Restless but sedate and content with milk. Occasionally hungry for more, but not ravenous enough to do whatever it takes to push past all resistance and break through the fog of complacency into the very Presence. The veil may have been torn on “Good Friday,” making it possible for common man (and not just the High Priest) to enter the Holy of Holies, but it wasn’t destroyed. We still have to choose to pass through the veil to stand before You. And I confess that THAT is all I want now.

THANK YOU!!!!! Oh sweet Jesus, Heavenly Father, and Holy Spirit, THANK YOU. Thank You for Your perfect timing, for my many messages in the night, for getting me up at 5 a.m. once again, for my amazing girlfriends #LOL, for the power of prayer, for allowing me to Hear from You, that You’ve always wanted me to hear from You, for the clarity regarding my next steps with social entrepreneurship and business, for that not being the pinnacle but only a sidebar, for my perfectly supportive husband and absolutely sublime children, for this one life, for the Passion translation, for Psalms, for giving me even the teensiest taste of Your Glory. Thank You that while I may not have experienced a “breakthrough” during my one-hour prayer-and-seeking-Your-voice session yesterday, my breakthrough did come in the night as I lay in bed. And thank You for Lorrie’s guidance and encouragement about how to hear Your voice, Kori’s prayers, and Ian’s willingness to watch the kids while it all went down.

Please, I beg You, be the Lord of my Life today. Surround me with Your wrap-around presence and fill me completely with Your Holy Spirit. Please baptize me in the all-consuming flame of Your Love. Fan this fire, keep it burning bright, remind me of You a zillion times an hour, and keep me on a very short leash. May the words of my mouth and every thought in my mind be a pleasant fragrance to You, my Love and my Life.

In Jesus’ precious name I pray, Amen and so it is! 🙂

A Heart Gratefully on Its Path

Abba,

You are faithful and true, never failing, and always working the details out at the perfect timing. Far from being a hands-off, impersonal deity, You’re intimately involved in even our smallest hopes and dreams.

I confess that I have been too “of the world” lately, caught up in the business of survival and business and money-making, and neglecting to just sit at Your feet and soak in Your presence.

Thank You for pulling me back, and thank You for revealing to me another incredible piece of the puzzle of what my life on earth can be about. I am so excited and grateful to be headed slowly but surely towards a filmmaking life-story ministry and business. It just pulls together so many things that I love. Of course You would plan something like that for me. 😉 And thank You so very much for my new Monday afternoon circle of girlfriends and for whatever community, growth, creativity, and contribution that will bring.

Please guide me in how to make the filmmaking thing happen as soon as possible and beneficial to all, and please help me to stay centered and unhurried as You and I walk together towards that reality. Now that I know what’s coming, it’s a little easier to be patient, because that’s something I can even enjoy doing in my 80’s and beyond, and yet also harder to be waiting and not doing it, because it’s something I so want to do and provide! Please open doors in that direction, and speak to me in my heart about it. And please work Your miracles and magic in the lives of Bob, Rosie, and Robby at the Manna Room. They need You–and deliverance from the darkness plaguing them–so desperately. Please make it clear to me what I can do to help them. Thank You for Your love and power.

In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
