‘Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The urgent request of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.’ James 5:16

We are all wounded. We have been set up perfectly for a Devine transformation. Beloved, your Father, God Most High, has chased you down for your supreme adventure. You may be facing tremendous difficulties, sour habits, poison addictions.
Your adventure changes course when you bend your knees. SweetOne, do it. Really, get quiet a moment with your Creator. Once you start there, you will begin to see small changes … and, it is there you begin to become all you were meant to be.
Ask a prayer partner to keep you accountable: check in and compare notes every single day.
Expect miracles!
Do you have a partner in mind? Ask them now. Do it.

Wake up.
Bend.
Go to bed.

Make it a fantastic day,
Angie

‘so that, having been justified by His grace, we may become heirs with the hope of eternal life.’ Titus 3:7

Mornin’, PrayerWarrior!
Prayer brings us to grace.
Often, I look around and see people, like me, who have made mistakes in their lives, and continue to wear the costume of the mistake. Even though, they have asked for and received forgiveness, they continue sporting their grubbies:
I am addicted.
I am an alcoholic.
I am a cheat.
I am a thief.
I am an adulteress.
I am a porn addict.
I am a liar.
I read a book where a form of baptism was practiced that probably wouldn’t fly here in ole dodge. It seems the one about to go under stripped naked as the day they were born to be plunged under the water. On the shore was the clothes of their old life – those that marked their life status. When they dried off, those old duds were replaced with all new clean ones – a sign they were a new Christian, clothed with the love and forgiveness of Christ.
Yes, grace gives us new clothes to wear.
Instead of living out the rest of your days “labeled” with a sin that marked your past, SweetOne, lose the old clothes. Simply refer to yourself as a “sinner saved by grace”.

‘Now determine in your mind and heart to seek the Lord your God.” 1 Chronicles 22:19

Good morning, God’s Child.
You know, prayer time chips away the ‘stuff’, doesn’t it? It’s like a little roadside inn – a refuge in the wilderness of our day. Prayer brings our Father’s love back into our vision. This love – well, it is only dangerous like warmth is dangerous to a frozen frown. Always, always, good comes from prayer time.
It is here, in one-on-one with The Holy that we reenter the rapture of Love again. We unlock a portal of ways to love based on the model of the Holy Miracle Child.
It is here, in this place of prayer, we can see through the eyes and the heart of Love alone.
The soul knows the way to live. In prayer is where we learn to ignore selfish ego parts and depend on the Spirit’s point of view.
Wake up.
Pray.
Live.
Make it a great day, SweetOne!

‘And under the expanse their wings extended one toward another. Each of them also had two wings covering their bodies. When they moved, I heard the sound of their wings like the roar of mighty waters, like the voice of the Almighty, and a sound of commotion like the noise of an army. When they stood still, they lowered their wings.’ Ezekiel 1:23, 24

Hello, SpiritChild!
God’s Holy Word is our main source of hearing the voice of the Creator.
We pray.
We read.
We hear.
Notice the sound of the angel wings in these verses:
Deafening.
Not hushed as we might imagine … DearOne, when Father God opens our spiritual ears, we don’t have to strain to hear. He makes it loud and clear.
The more we sit with The Creator, the more He develops us – no longer nibbling at life, but instead living fully unwound … as one lifting the love of Christ through the dark night,
through trembling,
through today’s attacks,
through tedious tasks,
through time-honored trails,
living fully unwound in His Holiness.
Go in prayer. Hear Him.

‘You who seek God, take heart! For the Lord listens to the needy and does not despise His own who are prisoners.’ Psalms 69:32, 33

Hello, Angelheart,
Just a little talk with Jesus … a prayer.
Mmm … you know, each prayer offers up a death and a birth. A plea for our beaten places to be blotted away sets a place for an ocean of Father God’s Divine to enter.
To speak to your Maker of His power over your –
scars,
of a haunting past,
places of pain,
opens up channels of healing where the God of the Universe brings new life, yes, a new birth from the very depths of His Spirit.
Oh, PreciousOne, seek Him! Enter in!

‘Wisdom is supreme — so get wisdom. And whatever else you get, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; if you embrace her, she will honor you. She will place a garland of grace on your head; she will give you a crown of beauty.” Proverbs 4:7-9

Good morning, Beautiful!
How can we know or even imagine what a day will bring? Or, a week? Or, a season?
There are evil forces at play. We pay them no attention, glaze over them, and move on. Yet, they have an agenda to reshape you and me like silly putty.
DearOne, we are living in a crazy time of light-speed change all around us. The world we go to sleep in is not the same world we wake up in – subtle forces are at work to throw us off balance.
But, you and I are the called of the God of the Universe. Do not think for a minute that you have no power and your moves don’t matter. Any action you take with your Holy Spirit, no matter how small it seems to you, is rocket fuel for profound change. Dearheart, one step in agreement with His Spirit opens a shaft of grace on your life that sets in motion a tailspin of blessing possibilities for everyone.
Do not take that lightly.
See the sacred in even the smallest detail of your life … and, even that, Sweetheart, is an act of profound obedience.
Make it a fantastic start-
Angie

‘Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name.’ Psalms 100:4
Hello PreciousOne!
The ultimate pick-me-up verse – can you just picture it as you enter? It’s a celebration to the soul when we enter in, isn’t it?!!! Awe …. I love this … I do!
This scripture is meant to be sung out in prayerful praise, Sweetheart. It carries a regal rhythm of trot and gallop with a sway of stage curtains lifting up.
Yet, it is a prayer of reminder to one who knows of tough times in the heart, too. The one who has a radiant heart of courage, first and foremost … and, a heart of love.
For those who have been wounded over and over, yet still find their way back to Him by way of the lavender light left shining from each wound, we become more deeply insightful to entering in to our Creator.
He enlightens us.
He strengthens our heart.
He fills us with more love to share however we can, with whomever we can.
Ah, yes, SweetSoul.
Enter in.

‘God, Your way is holy. What god is great like God? You are the God who works wonders; You revealed Your strength among the peoples.’ Psalms 77:13, 14
Hello, ShiningOne:
This moment is pivotal in history. A choice to partner with The Almighty for today calls to you. His FIRE, ignited in your heart beckons you, SpiritFriend.
In His holy presence, you are stripped clean of veils of insecurity. You stand in the naked truth of who you really are: the beloved of God Most High. It is here, BelovedOne, that we learn not to run from suffering, but to transform it … bringing His sacred love into the trenches of our hours.
God Most High calls to you.
Choose Him to shed His light like a meteor-burst into your inner sky.
Make your choice.
Begin.

Good morning, FaithfulOne,
When I was little, I thought my Pop Reinking was a GIANT. Getting up into his chair to rock with him was a climb, but once there, I was sitting in a great, warm throne. In that lap, all the world was right.
DearOne, as you learn to crawl into the space of the Holy, very often you will find that Father God takes you to that place, where troubles grow smaller, and panic pulls away, and you are reassured that the Power at work through His Holiness in you is enough.
In His lap, in His Word, all the gifts you long for are yours –
to feel love,
to be able to laugh,
and, sometimes, to be able to finally cry once again.
All that you have needed is right here with Him.

‘Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. And He was praying there.’ Mark 1:35
