Keep Hold of My Hand, My Child

You are the Gate. You open doors no man can shut and lead us in the Way we should go. We are bowed to You, dependent on You in awe of You. Lead us, Lord. We are listening. We will follow.


Please remember, when the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word, it either will resonate with you or it will not.  No one prophetic word is for every person. But there are some for whom God had intended this.  I am human and imperfect.  Please always pray before you read and as you read. And this is my prayer for you: ”LORD, please lead each reader perfectly and cause them to receive and remember, only that which is from You for them.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.” ~ Elizabeth

 As you enter the next transition, as the new season is upon you, the temptation will be great to pick up the tasks before you and try to carry them on your own.  I am glad you desire to be responsible. This is a good thing. But please remember to be My child first and always.

I am your Parent, I am perfect and only I know best.  I know all!  I know what was, what is and what will be.  I know where the enemy is lurking and how he will seek to provoke and tempt you.  I know because I AM.

You are coming into this new season because I have willed it.  I am leading. Continue to let Me lead.  I know why we are going this way.  I know whom I desire to touch with My presence through you.  For you see it is not just about you, though it will bless you.  It is about reaching those who have not seen Me yet as Lord.  It is about bringing My Living Water – My Holy Spirit – into the dry places so a harvest will grow.  It is about planting and nurturing the seed of My Word.  It is about illuminating the dark places with the Truth of My Way for I AM the Light of the world and I will be seen.  I is about being My amabassador wherever I allow you to go in this life.  It is about Me and My love for you and for all of them and it will be glorious!

You will never be alone.  I am there always.  I AM before, behind and alongside you hemming you in for I love you and as your Parent, there is a particular way I desire this to go.  If you step out on your own using your own good intentions as your guide, you will fail to bring My eternal good into the situation.  Thus there may be results and it may apear good, but in reality when seen with My eyes which span and purpose with My view of eternity, it will be LIFELESS.

LIFE is what I am about.  LIFE and LIFE only.  Latch onto My hand.  Let Me lead you in the Way.  Do not run ahead of Me.  It will not be what you think.  LIFE, LIFE, LIFE eternal!  This is My heart’s cry!  Oh, that they would embrace My gift and receive the freedom now through forever, which I desire for them!

I am sending you. I am bringing you.  You are My Water-carrier, My Light-bearer, My appointed laborer for this field, My ambassador representing My Kingdom-view in this place.

Do not let go of My hand.  Look to Me.  Worship Me.  Let Me steward.  Let Me guide.  Let Me open doors no man can shut.  I AM the Lord.  I love you.  I love them.  I want them with Me forever as you already are.  I desire to use you.  Be My child.  Don’t let go and go off on Your own.  Walk through this gate with Me and never let me go.  Be My child. Hold My hand. What I provide and how I provide it will be more than enough.

Author: Elizabeth Fulgaro

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth

  1. Elizabeth, thank you so much for this word. It is a word I needed so desperately to hear, and a confirmation of what God is saying to my heart. You have always been, and continue to be a pure vessel through which God can pour His heart out to speak. You are a huge blessing. Love you, Susie Williams

    1. Dearest Susie,
      Our Lord is soooo kind to us! Thank you for letting me know and may He confirm what He has spoken to your heart over and over again. God bless you! Love you back, dear sister…~ Elizabeth
