Conversation Number 10

Conversations are updated as He leads.

The following conversation between a believer and God is not meant to represent a specific theology or theological truth. It represents one believer's struggle and the response that believer represents as God's truth for that believer and that believer alone.

Did you hear me screaming Lord? Frustrations, frustrations, frustrations…
You make me laugh, my son. You are a hoot to watch.

O.K., but I am sweating here. Three hours I have been trying to solve this software problem and it was something simple I did not read about to fix. Yes, I know, it was my doing.
Yes, it was your doing, but at least you were doing it for me. I know what you want to ask. I can read it in you. It is about Mary.

Yes, Lord. When my heart is tuned in to the right place, she is following me around, laughing, giggling, and clapping her hands. What is all this about? She is not part of my worship tradition in the faith.
Sometimes you miss things. Sometimes I need to communicate to you and everyone else in ways they do not expect or do not recognize as normal. What you have been experiencing is my joy. You need this kind of contact to keep you whole and on track. Having her with you is not part of your tradition but I care more about production from you than I do about your tradition. I hear you prayers and petitions. I realize you are now into private worship areas where you have not been before. The more you work with me the more you will change. The more you work with me the more diverse your experiences will get. I want growth. I want positive and upward change. I am not pleased with stagnation in faith or in the expression of faith. The joy I am sending through her is an expression to you of my joy with you, her joy with you, and the joy you are spreading throughout the world. The visible results you are seeing from the work you are doing is only the tip of the iceberg. I have more work for you to do, so bite the bullet because business is going to pick up for you and I am not talking about what you used to call business. I am talking about MY business. Your aunt is also praying for you. This is another reason why you are being communicated to in this new way.

Yes Lord, I understand. I am weeping from your love and touch.
Yes, I know you are. Your physical afflictions are great and they will continue. For reasons I will not reveal but of which you have some knowledge, these afflictions need to be turned into my glory. I know you are also concerned about the future but you are not to get prophetic messages at this time. You are smart enough and bright enough to figure out where world events are going, at least enough for you to be able to take action. I am pleased that President Bush is in the White House but must warn people he is only a human being. The President is not to be worshipped. I am to be worshipped. He is just as vulnerable to satanic attack as anyone else. You need to pray that he be protected, along with his family and members of his cabinet.

Why were we not talking for several months? Every time I would start to do this, I would get a big hand (no jokes) in my face.
I cannot reveal that to you. There are times to speak, times to listen, and times to row your boat upstream with neither speaking or listening. There are a lot of things you need to figure out on your own. Rowing upstream against the current is a way to grow and get stronger. Dependence on me is not to be tolerated in your life. For reasons you may or may not understand you are to blaze trails and forge rivers without leaning on me as much as others lean on me.

What do I do when I really need you? This thing is tough for me to do. I do need you every hour.
Yes, I know you do need me and I am always there for you, but coming to me like a helpless invalid will not be tolerated by me. I have made you into the kind of person you are because I need you to speak what you are speaking. The problems I see in the world can be lessened by your messages of tough talk and straight truth. The coming dark days will see a winnowing out of who people thought were the just and devout. You need to keep on telling the truth about the faith with no sugar coating.

Am I going in the right direction with the work I am doing?
Do not worry about direction at this point. Just keep on keeping on. Keep pushing. Keep forging ahead regardless of the cost. You will pay a high price but do not count the cost. I love you without measure. When you hurt you can take a break but when you are rested get back to work. Take as much of the pain as you can, take a break, and keep going.

Am I going in the right direction in other areas of my life?
You know the answers already. I am not an answering machine. You will make mistakes as will everyone else. It is not the mistake made in innocence I get concerned about. I get concerned when you turn your attention away from me, although you are doing a good job of staying on track with me. I know you get tired but I will keep you going. You have to keep praying for your family. Keep praying every day. You prayers are putting a shield around them. I know you want to know about the mundane and everyday things of the future but I will not tell you these things. If I turn you into a prophet with great hit stats you will lose the mission you are on. Keep adding new things to my work that you do. Keep trying new things. I could give you explicit instructions in what to do and how to do it, but you need to learn while you are doing. Think of this as a grow by mistake method. When you make mistakes you grow if you handle the mistake as a source of wisdom. You did something recently although quite innocent that turned you upside down for a couple of days. Do not repeat that action for it was an innocent mistake. I know you know you should not do this again, but I am telling you this just to remind you. You, like everyone else, will be sorely tempted. Fight against this temptation. This temptation will come in ways that are deceiving. What may look good from what seems to be my view is not always good. Use discernment for the evil one is great at deception. You spend some time viewing current events. Do not slack off from this activity as it gives you a view on what is going on and what some of my remnant are thinking. Let things go when things pile up. Let it go when the people of darkness goad you and irritate you. You will see more of this as things begin to unfold. The more upset you get at the actions of the people of darkness the less you have contact with me. Contact with me will supply your every need that you need supplied. You will have to really bite the bullet and do some hard physical work to keep things in order in you secular life at home. You know what I am talking about and I will not discuss more of it through you now for your security reasons. Be aware that you must be more security conscious. I want you to take black plastic sheets and cut them to fit the sizes of your windows and doors. You know a little about why I am asking this. I am not telling you things will happen but you need to prepare whether things happen or whether they don't. It is important that you re-prepare as you did before the rollover. You have many opportunities stirring within you right now. Some of these I want you to pursue but not all of them. Tune into my love and you will know which ones to drop and which ones to keep. Whatever you do, put the current work you are doing in front of everything else. The current work is the main thing. Do not expect recognition from the people you consider above you in prestige or position. I understand you want recognition for what you do but this is your pride and ego pinging you. Forget them, for what they could give you is not worth your time. I am the source of all that you need. Your monastic life is a blessing to me even if it drives you crazy. When you go crazy enough, then we will move on to something else. Keep everything in my perspective. Do not use your perspective, use mine. Do not waste your time or mind on wanting people to know about what you are doing. I am and I will take care of things for you on that end. The pastor you met recently needs your support. Maintain some contact with him. He is slipping. He needs to toughen up. Things are unraveling all over and many will fall. This trend started many years ago in earnest and this trend will continue. I love you my son.

Thank you Lord, I love you too
