Day 22,

Teacher

Isaiah 54:13

John 8:32

 

Beloved,

I am the teacher for all your children.

I bring them back to you.

I give you, and them, truth, grace, and wisdom.

I set all of you free.

Listen to Me and follow my ways.

Truth, like a laser beam, will zap the locks on your minds and open the doors.

The truth will create rooms for healing, peace, and joy.

It will bring progress and growth into your life.

Day 21,

Real Love

1 John 3:18-20

 

Beloved,

 

Humans talk a lot about love. But do you know what love is?

Get ready to practice my definition of love so you’ll know when you see the real thing.

One of the big things you need to know is that being hard on yourself blocks love for you and through you.

Self-criticism, guilt, and going over the past to see what you’ve done wrong goes against my idea of love.

If I want you to know something about yourself, I will tell you, no need to dig around and hurt yourself.

My conviction is timely and gentle. It will come as a relief, not as a tirade.

I am so much greater than your perceptions, worries, and judgements.

I know everything about you and that’s a lot more than you know about yourself.

Once you start putting your thinking under my control and stop condemning yourself, you are free and bold before me.

That’s when you experience the presence of my Holy Spirit flowing through you and setting things right.

That’s when you begin receiving whatever you ask in My name.

That’s when you can love others without judging them.

Day 19

Delight

Psalm 28:6-9

 

Beloved,

I am with you every night when you go to bed.

I am with you every morning for the day ahead.

You feel my warm protection that stretches through the years.

I’m there in every moment of happiness or tears.

Remember, my beloved, I am always there for you

Find delight and pleasure in the grace-filled things I do.

Day 18,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Psalm 103

 

Beloved,

We forgive all your sins.

We heal all your diseases.

We redeem your daily.

We crown you with love and mercy.

We wrap you in goodness.

We make everything come out all right for you.

We put you back on your feet.

We reveal our plans one step at a time.

We are rich in love.

We are sheer mercy and grace.

We don’t nag and scold.

We don’t hold grudges.

As high as heaven is above the earth so great is our love for you.

We have separated you from your sins.

We threw them in the deepest ocean.

We never go fishing for them.

We don’t want you to go fishing for them either.

We know you inside and out.

Our love is eternal.

We will always be together.

Let your soul rejoice in us.

Day 16

Deep

Luke 5: 4

 

Beloved,

I will give you the most careful and tender guidance,

The most thoughtful filling of your needs,

The most accurate and supernatural shaping

For your life…light, joy, anticipation.

I have filled you with My atonement.

Give up anxiety.

Give up having to understand everything.

Give up your perception of what you can do for me,

Or even what I might want to do for you.

Float in my love.

My Holy Spirit is in you.

He is deep and sweet.

Bathe in Him as in a cool fathomless sea.

Bathe and breathe.

Lose yourself and your sorrows.

Lose your helplessness in the

Calm and peace of my everlasting presence.

My holy spirit is a bright, marvelous, answer to prayer.

fear-not

 

Picture and paraphrase by DiVoran Lites

 

Day 15

Fear Not

Isaiah 43, Revelation 1:1-6

 

Beloved,

I’ll tell you how and why you’re afraid.

Then I’ll tell you how you are redeemed from fear.

You’re afraid when you don’t know what to do.

It may be difficult to admit that you are helpless and know nothing.

You start figuring. What will happen next?

How can you protect yourself and others?

This is how the world, the flesh, and the devil think and act.

Their thoughts are damaging.

You look at the past. Has anything like this happened to you or to anyone you know?

You go online to read everything that remotely applies to the problem.

You listen to the opinions of many counselors.

Some have solid ideas, but some harbor false perceptions,

You try to sort them out.

You remain in a state of the hyper alertness as though you were standing on a highway with cars whizzing by.

You fantasize about crashes, falls, accidents, hospital visits, and dying.

You invite guilt: what did you do to deserve this?

You ask if I am angry with you.

You slip in the miry clay and fall into self-pity.

Fear and worry kill your joy.

STOP

Breathe in Spirit

Be still and know that I Am God.

Thank me immediately.

That is my signal to go into action.

That is how I know you want my help.

You can do it from the start and skip all the nonsense.

It’s how I know you value kinship with me more than anything else.

I am able to make everything fresh.

I light your path, one step at a time.

It is the day of freedom, truth, and abundant life.

Watch for miracles. Give and receive love

Rejoice and be glad.

I give all the strength and wisdom you need.

I impart understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, reverence, and obedience: the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Taste and see that I am good.

getting-along

Picture and paraphrase by DiVoran Lites

 

Day 14

Getting Along

Romans 12:6-21

 

Beloved,

Do the best you can, with my help, to love people.

Be discerning and let me show you who to trust.

Work with your hands, heart, and mind.

Serve and give.

Find your own niche and enjoy life to the fullest.

Each of my children is different from my other children so never compare yourself with someone else.

Do not campaign for other people to measure up to your expectations.

Pray for others and let Me correct them if correction is needed.

love

Picture and paraphrase by DiVoran Lites

 

 

Day 13

Love

1 Corinthians 13

 

Beloved,

The greatest gift is love.

Love never gives up.

I want you to learn to love yourself,

And love others, too.

Love is contented with what it has.

Love does not walk around with its nose in the air.

Love doesn’t force others.

Love gives anger to Me so that it doesn’t explode onto people.

Love keeps going and giving.

gifts

Picture and paraphrase by DiVoran Lites

 

Day 12

Gifts

1 Corinthians 12

Romans 12:6-8

 

Beloved,

Here is a list of spiritual gifts and abilities that I give to humans. If you ask me I will tell you which ones you are to develop and polish according to the personality I have given you:

Wisdom and the ability to help others with their questions and decisions.

Clear understanding of how I work and what I want you to do.

Simple trust which, when invested in those I want you to trust blossoms in your life and theirs.

The ability to heal the sick, whether with physical care or prayer alone.

Miraculous acts such as the one when my son turned water into wine.

Being able to tell others what I’m doing and even, sometimes, what I Am going to do.

Determining whether an idea or a person is acting from my will or from an evil source.

Talking in a prayer language just between you and Me.

Understanding and interpreting what I say through you or someone else.
