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! 🙂

My Desire: To Be Trained + Ordained, Anointed + Appointed

Abba,

You are eternal, perfect, holy, and whole. You are completely integrated and always in integrity with yourself. You aren’t lacking anything. You are fullness of love, definiteness of purpose, confidence, grace. You’re here with me, embracing me, filling me with Your power, Your love, Your wisdom.

I confess that I’m too full of my little self to have any room for You to pour Yourself into me, and I don’t know how to change that on my own. I want to pour all of me—all my desires, earthly hopes and dreams, worries, wishes, concerns, projects, all of it—out, leaving an empty vessel to offer You to use for Your purposes.

Thank You that Your Holy Spirit can teach me how to do that, to offer myself at Your feet. Thank You that I’m aching for You right now, and that my highest desire is to be with You, to be Your trained & ordained, anointed & appointed Minister of Reconciliation. Thank You that You wouldn’t give me this desire to be Your Ambassador unless You intend to make good on it and redeem my life.

Today I pray that You would open doors in that direction, that I could become trained & ordained, anointed & appointed. Please give me wisdom and certainty about what that means and how to serve You completely in my life right now, while working towards becoming trained & ordained so that I have the confidence and inspiration to be all about You all the time. Please send me cohorts and mentors that can help me guard myself from distractions, because I know I’m too weak and worldly on my own. Teach me to feed my spirit and starve my flesh! Make me Your Ambassador. I beg You!!

In Jesus’ merciful name I pray, amen.
