I AM.

Lord, there’s so much work to do. I have several blog posts started, but not finished. Ideas are swirling around in my head. Write this, write that. That’s a good idea. No wait, this is a better idea. Which one should I write first?

My wonderful blog friends have sent me several awards I need to answer. I so enjoy their praise and I do like being noticed.  Everyone likes a pat on the back. They are wonderful with their words of praise to me. I do enjoy reading about their lives, both their struggles and their victories. I ‘m attached to several of my blog buddies.

But Lord, I feel overwhelmed and I don’t know where to begin. I don’t know what to say. I don’t know where to start. What do I tell them?

My child, tell them “I AM HERE. I see all. I know all. I AM all.”


I have come to bring them peace and joy. If only they would come to Me.

Come to Me and I will fill you. Seek My Presence and I will grant you wisdom. I’ll supply all you have need of for I AM your supply. Open your eyes and your heart to see I AM all around you everywhere you look. Even in the midst of chaos, I AM there waiting to fill you with MY peace.

I’ll direct your steps if you would look to Me. I AM.

A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9 

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Psalm 37:23 
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8 
_____________________________________
Lord, I don’t understand so much. You promise peace. What about all those suffering all over the world?
My child, suffering began with Adam and Eve. Did you notice that I only forbid them not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil? I did not forbid them to eat of the Tree of Life. Did you notice that? It was only after they made their choice that I cut them off from Eden and the Tree of Life. You think that was My punishment, but actually it was My mercy. I returned to mankind the Tree of Life when My Son hung on it. It was through His death that life for all came.
 
You have said it was a mistake that I gave some free will. You said some men should not have free will because they are so cruel to others.
Yes, some men abuse free will just as they abuse each other. But look at those that have chosen to help others sacrificially. My heart swells with pride as I watch how they show forth My love one to another. With the knowledge of good and evil, some choose evil and some choose good.
Why did you allow the evil men to have free will?
I gave all men free will. It is up to each one to choose. I have provided for all the Tree of Life. It is their choice. Love forced is not true love. I long for true love just as you.

We love Him because He first loved us.1 John 4:19

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:37-39 NKJV

 

       
  
 

About deborahcrocker

I am a retired public school teacher. I have been married for 44 years to my high school sweet heart. We have two grown children and six grandchildren. For many years I have written my prayers in order to maintain both my focus and as a release from my stresses. These prayers are written in the form of dialog with God. I write my concerns, questions, and then write the answers just as they came into my heart. This website contains the conversations I had with God concerning my constant struggle with my weight and my compulsion to overindulge in the pleasure of food. I have gained, lost, and regained over 60lbs several times throughout my lifetime. I am now in the process of surrendering this addiction to God’s control and I know He will give me the victory. I believe that God speaks to all of His children in different ways. With me, He speaks both in my heart and in my dialog writings. ”My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27 It is my hope and prayer that these dialogs will both encourage and bless you throughout your own journey of breaking free from your addiction. I hope that you will also begin having your own personal dialogs with God. He will speak to your heart as well.I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and that He rose again on the third day so that we may have a “new” life both here on Earth and later in Heaven. I also believe that my overeating (gluttony) is a sin (addiction) that has held me in bondage with a constant struggle for most of my adult life. This addiction, like all addictions, has prevented me from living a life to my fullest potential. I have always felt controlled and defeated by this overwhelming compulsion to overeat. This compulsion, at times, has damaged both my confidence and my potential. John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly. BUT I know that Jesus Christ has come to set me free! HE IS THE ANSWER! As I surrender the control of my life and desires to His direction and His will, He will set me free from all addictions! He promises and He will make you free too! John 8:36 Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. VICTORY IS COMING!!!
