Rewarded with His Presence

A few months ago I began doing 2-way journaling where I write (actually, I usually type) my prayers (conversations) with the Lord. It has been very helpful for me in learning to hear HIS voice and developing a more intimate relationship with Jesus.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” (John 10:27)

I will be sharing some of my conversations with you on this blog.

Here is part of my journal entry from October 30, 2009.

(Words from Jesus in red.)

I woke up this morning with a certain song in my head —”I will Sing, Sing, Sing” (sung by Chris Tomlin.)

I do not have that song in my iTunes library or on a CD so I got online and did a search and found several videos of the song. Just love the internet! Lord, I enjoyed praising YOU to that song, and to other songs I played after that.

While I was singing “Lift Him Up” I could feel your pleasure and your presence. I believe your were saying, “Yes! You are getting it! You are worshipping Me from your heart and I am working and warring on your behalf.”

Yes, I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek me. I reward you with my presence. I reward you with joy and peace. I reward you with wisdom and with strength. I reward you with liberty, freedom from bondage, freedom from fear, freedom from hopelessness.  I reward you with a vision, a dream, a purpose.

But you must make time for me and make room for me in your heart. Do not let your life get too cluttered with so much stuff that you don’t have time or room for me.

    JoDitt, I’ve journal this way for several years and it has taken me to a much deeper level of relationship and revelation. It also helps me remember what God has said to me…my memory isn’t all it should be. =) I am going to love following along on your journey. It’s exciting isn’t it?!

    Yes, Trina, it is exciting! Whoever says being a Christian is boring has no idea!
