Ask in My Name

Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. John 16:24

 What are you asking of God? Are you asking it in Jesus name?

I know thousands of us are asking God for a miracle healing for Cashy Michael Hyde who is in SLC Children’s Hospital for treatment of a brain tumor. This little guy isn’t even two years old yet. The fan page on Facebook is growing daily and the fervent prayers are written there by people who know him well and people who are only there because God put it on their heart to pray.

I ask, in Jesus name, for healing for Cashy and for peace for his entire family. I ask in Jesus name because it is the name above all names. It is the name that will be spoken when every knee bows and every tongue confesses that He is Lord. I ask in Jesus name because there is no name more powerful.

My prayer for you, my blog friend, is that you will pray in His powerful name for the issues in your life today.

I hope you will seek Him daily, moment by moment, for all of your needs. Not just when a crisis arises.

Don’t make him a vending machine God that you only come to when you have a dire need and you plug in a prayer or two and wait for whatever falls.

He created you for relationship. He loves you with an everlasting love. He knows the number of hairs on your head. All the days of your life were written by Him before one of them came to be. He tells us all of this in the Bible.

You were created to do a mighty work for the Kingdom of God right here and right now.

He doesn’t want you to sit on the sidelines and watch. He’s asking you to put on the full armor of God and get in the game.

As you seek Him for everything and pray without ceasing, soon you’ll experience His grace and there will be an outward manifestation of His Power in your life.

I weep for you today. I’m not sure why, but the tears flow as I pray and ask for God’s touch in your life. I give my tears to the one who collects them. I give them to the one who will one day wipe away every tear. I give them to Jesus.

I hope you will email me or post a comment if you need me to join you in prayer for anything going on in your life today.

God Bless your heart in Jesus mighty and powerful name.

Writing Retreat 2010

Wednesday May 12 2010 10:23 pm | Comments (0) Tags: ,

Day 1 of my 2010 writing retreat to Montana was successful. I submitted an article and wrote a couple blogs. I worked on a few pages of my manuscript. I’m excited to spend the next ten days focusing on my writing – Hope in Hard Times – Building a Strong Foundation of Hope.

Most of my writing today was done in the car traveling to Missoula.

I’ll journal through this season of writing. I want to finish this manuscript so I can move forward and get it published. I have a book contract to custom publish it with WinePress. I’ve made major changes to the original manuscript so it has taken me a little while to get it the way I want.

My prayer for this book is that it will touch lives of people with story to help build their foundation of hope. We learn from other’s stories and I’m sharing many that helped make my foundation solid.

I recently wrote about my dad’s battle with cancer three different times in his young life. But he never lost hope in Jesus. I want that kind of faith.

We’ll see you tomorrow as I share more about this writing journey.

No Fear in Love

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. 1 John 4:18

God has perfect love to give. And it is free.

The creator of all wants to love me perfectly. I delight in that love. There is joy and peace in that love.

It is a love that is consistent – the same yesterday, today and forever.

With a word God spoke creation into being. He has spoken love over me and will call out to the things I need in my life – peace, joy, forgiveness, provision.

He is in everything around me. I rejoice and I share everything with Him. Like the treasures my boys found on the beach and brought to me in their tiny hands. A gift of simple love to their mom.

So I take the treasures of my life and bring them to God as a gift. God gave me my boys and now I give them back to Him as the treasures they have become.

And I get to share the joy with Jesus because after all, they are His kids in the first place. They are simply His gift to me and I treasure the fact He shared them with me.

Bless you today. I pray you will share everything with Him. Your joys, your pains, your sadness, your grief, your excitement are all gifts to Him.

He looks your way today and says “Share it with Me.”

God Bless Your Heart
