~ KNOCK, KNOCK,
KNOCK, KNOCK ~
night as I was ready to go to sleep I kept asking the
Lord if He had anything to say to me. I heard nothing.
Then I asked again. Finally, I wasn't being very adult,
and was really begging Him like a kid would do. One
more time, I said, “PLLLLEEEEEASE Lord?”
I saw the lines in a frownie face. The lines were being
redrawn from the lips going down, to upwards in a smile.
I laughed out loud and said Goodnight!
PONDER: I WILL TURN YOUR FROWNS UP
going to turn you right side up. One day, those frownie
faces that do not become you shall turn into delighted
NKJ Mark 11:24
full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul
every bitter thing is sweet.” (Prov 27:7 KJV)
it’s me again. Please forgive me for nagging You so
much, but I really want to hear from You.]
Words in My mouth.
You mean it’s not nagging?]
Exactly the opposite. I am drawing you.
thought this entry rather humorous; it was before
I was given a writing ministry.
hearing so little of late, I have grown very hungry and
have been knocking continually for several days. Upon
waking from another blank night, I asked the Lord what
was going on. I thought of many possibilities, but
nothing was planted in my heart. Then when I was
getting ready for the day I heard the Lord say,
“Encouragement.” That was it.
for errands and then received the strangest Word. I was
at the grocery store and heard the phrase, “Maybe she
ought to know.” I had the distinct feeling that either
the Lord or some angels were speaking something about
me. At that exact moment, a bakery lady with a giant
clear plastic sack of fresh bread walked past me,
carrying the bread over her shoulder. This was really
quickened to me but I did not know why. Then later as I
was driving home, I drove behind an “oversized load”
truck on the freeway. I kept thinking about that
oversize bread sack the lady was carrying and wondering
what I was supposed to know. Well I haven’t heard Him
in days, I guess He is trying to send me encouragement.
[HINDSIGHT NOTE: I think God has a
tongue in check sense of humor!]
Importunity. Declare delivered. Make merry and be
glad. Up and out. Through. Finished. The end. Amen.
Blessed ones. Waiting for God. Thank you.
JONES QUOTE - ENTERING IN
talk to Him with the religious jargon. Just talk to Him
with the truth, He already knows what’s in your heart.
If you had a bummer day, tell Him about it. If you are
having problems, tell Him about it. You enter into the
Presence of the Lord with faith, truth and inner
honesty. These are 3 things that get you in there.
First faith, then truth and be totally honest. And you
are going to come into the Presence of the Lord. But I
like to cultivate it. Through the years. It took me a
while to get into it. But I believed and I kept seeking
until I found. If you seek you will find. If you
knock, the door will be opened to you. And sometimes my
greatest knocking was silence. Shutting this off.
(head) And you can, and listen. When it first starts,
all these other phones in your mind are ringing all the
time. And sometimes you don’t hear until about 3 oclock
at night when all the other phones have gone off. At 3
o clock at night this mind of yours is not doing the
last day’s work anymore and it hasn’t started doing the
next day’s work. And your flesh has already rested from
the last day. And it isn’t hurting so bad you couldn’t
hear. Then is when you begin to get the light
impressions. Then is when you need to listen. At first
you need to write them down…”

TO PONDER: SEEK ME
hear you knocking, dear one. I told you that you shall
find Me if you seek Me. So why do you frown? Do you
think I am lost? Smile, precious! I am not lost, but I
do hide Myself. I draw your heart to earnestly seek Me
with all your heart, so that you will know Me in all My
ways. How I love to reveal My heart to those who are
truly hungry for Me. Do not feel guilty about your
tendency to nag until I answer. I am drawing you and
developing within you the habit of searching for Me, so
that you will learn to abide in Me, and not stray from
My side. I know that once you “catch” Me, you will
never let go!
so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will be given
what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find.
Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened. For
everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds.
And the door is opened to everyone who knocks. "You
fathers--if your children ask for a fish, do you give
them a snake instead? Or if they ask for an egg, do you
give them a scorpion? Of course not! If you sinful
people know how to give good gifts to your children, how
much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit
to those who ask him."
