Good Morning, Lord

Thank You for being the Light in our lives like a sun which never sets, constantly, magnificently lighting up the otherwise darkness with Your love and truth and lighting the path of true life and purpose back to You for eternity for us and all those who will follow. We celebrate You!

Morning Prayer of Thanksgiving and Worshipful Consecration 

Good morning, Lord. Thank You for another day. Thank You for another moment to revel that all Your promises are true and that it is Your desire to do in each of us more than we can hope or imagine. Thank You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for Your love which spans from eternity to eternity and is beyond anything we can fully comprehend.

It is comforting to know, You are beyond our understanding and all good. When the storms of life blow, pelt and threaten to overtake us, we can choose instead to be at rest in You, our perfect Dwelling Place and Refuge, in one respect because of Your promises and in the other respect because we know Your all-good, eternity-focused ways are beyond our full comprehension. Thank You for permission to be Your child. Thank You that we do not have to know it all or carry the responsibility for figuring it out. Thank You for adopting us and being our Perfect Parent. Thank You for holding our hand and leading us by Your Spirit and never letting go, even coming to seek us and draw us back when we have gone astray.

Thank You that there is nothing You won’t forgive, no wound You will not heal. Thank You for not leaving us to die here, but reconciling us to Yourself through Your own sacrifice of Yourself, Jesus that we might cross through death, not as the end and an earned verdict of separation from You forever, but as a door to even closer relationship. Thank You for creating us for relationship with others as well as with you so there is companionship. You knew in our humanness we would sin, doing things which did not enable us to remain close to You because of Your Holy Perfection and insistence we have choice whether to have You as King or not. You knew in our self-oriented imperfections we would hurt one another – often not even on purpose and yet other times horrifically intentionally. You give us Your forgiveness when we fail; You extend Your arms of comfort and healing when we are wounded. You offer healing to us when we forgive those who trespass against the individuals You made us to be. You knew we would stray. You knew how You would draw us back. In Your love we choose to rest, find peace and experience healing toward wholeness. You also choose to use us as we live with eyes upturned to You and lives given over to You because we have learned our way doesn’t work, but Yours does to help others on their healing journey to eternal complete reunion with You.

Thank You that we are adopted children of Your eternal Kingdom as soon as we choose it.  Thank You for our assignments here every day which give us good purpose to be Your ambassadors to reflect Your way and shine Your Light of love that others might see the Way home to their intended destiny in You as well. Thank You that ultimately the day will come where as much as we delight, delight, delight to worship You and serve You from here You will draw us closer into Your eternal heavenly presence where the battle for us will cease and there will be no more pain, struggles or tears.

For now, we revel in who You are, bow to Your majesty and Sovereignty and with full allegiance of every aspect of our beings pledged to You (in thought, word and deed) committed to do Your will, please send Your Spirit with increase today to guide and direct our thoughts, words and steps that You might be glorified so that through the obedience of each of us in the sometimes dark places where You place or send us, all might know You are God. We love You for who You are.  We trust fully in You alone.  You chose us. We choose to choose You, Savior, Lord, King and Most High! We have no power and all things are Yours, not ours, but give You our hearts. You are our all in all and everything. In You we live, move and have our being. To obey You is not sacrifice, but delight. Have Your way. We will trust and rejoice. In Jesus’ name, Amen

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
