Sit Awhile!

My Child, you have sat awhile with Me in the early hours of
this morning. I know you will again sit awhile with Me before
your day ends. Today, during your busy day, will you also sit
awhile with Me for a few moments around noon?  I never tire
of hearing your voice.
Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and
rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and His apostles didn’t even have time to eat. – Mark 6:31

My Words

My child
​My words
that
I have given you
whether
written or spoken
that you share
with those around you
and those
you serve
joyfully
whether
listened to
or read
have
the inbuilt ability
to change
and
impact
these lives
forever

T​he words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and
they are life. ​Jesus – (John 6:63​)

The Void

Without You Heavenly Father
life has a void.
Thank You Father,
that
as You have filled
the void
in our lives,
today
we ask that
as we serve,
through us,
we will help You fill the void
in those
You are calling,
those You are restoring,
and those
who You love,
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as
you trust in Him. – Romans 15:13 (NIV)

My Voice

Precious children, you have heard, recognized, and responded
to My voice of hope, comfort, and grace. Many are waiting
to hear the same voice from Me, their caring Shepherd.
Today, as we together serve those I have called you to,
you will be to them, My voice of hope, comfort, and grace.
I have chosen you for this from the beginning.

Heavenly Father, for the privilege of presenting Your voice
on earth, we are grateful,
in Jesus’ name, Amen.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow
me … you have not chosen me, but I have chosen you. –
John 10:27; John 15:16
