"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

I need to be known.

Yes, I do need to be known. But, I need to be known in the right perspective. And that is moving away from people pleasing and having the assurance that God will take care of all my hurts, needs, desires, ambitions, etc.

I am known by God. God is the one that knows me intimately, every single detail about me.

I desire the Shekinah glory which is a form of Hebrew word that means "he caused to dwell." A divine visitation of the presence or dwelling of JEHOVAH God! Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not believe one can remain within that state of glory for a long period of time, as it is very powerful. Just having the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, is electrifying enough for me. But, I do know there is much much more that I desire.....

I need to be known to God. To know the full redemption of Him!


  1. So true...So very true how He knows every detail in our lives. He created us...out of His unfathomable love. Blessings.

  2. That's wonderful that you desire to grow closer to God. Thanks for sharing.

  3. My personal walk with the Lord is one of a trouble confusion at times. I know God knows my heart and my minds boggles. If I thought I would be damned to hell for confusion I would not confess to know the power of God. I would simple accept my fate. But God lets me know I matter when he whispers to me via the Holy Spirit. It lets me know it's okay to me, my authentic me. Not the me others want, demand or forsake.

    I too look to grow closer with the Lord. I look to follow his wisdom even when my heart falls heavy and seems unrepairable. I try hard to include God in all my decisions prior to calling them to action. This way, my will is led properly. When hurt, this is not always easy for me. But I am trying.

    I hope we all walk closer together. My arms are hugging you friend. Gently but securely. You are brave. Hugs. Tammy

  4. Your walk amazes me! It's so wonderful to know that there are people out there in the world who are as thirsty as I am for God.

  5. me too! Thanks for this post.

  6. Your longing is in-line with what God tells us to do. Seeking after Him, to be known by Him, and to know Him is a wonderful desire. You go, girl!

    “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." (Mt 7:7).

  7. Hey girl- can you email me at lindseyhartz@yahoo.com? I want to ask you some questions about a ministry blog. You can also add me on facebook if you are more comfortable with communicating that way.


  8. Tell Him over and over of your desire for Him, keep knocking, JBR, persistence pays off. He loves you with an infinite love. He would not put this longing in you if He wasn't going to answer it. Trust Him. I am praying for you :)

  9. I'm inspired by this post. I want to delve deep within and grow closer to God. I think it's a never ending challenge to do so. Thanks for posting this. I'm encouraged.

  10. I appreciate your writings, JBR. Such an inspiration! I left something for you on my blog, dear. *Hugs*

  11. Nice post. You're an encouragement to many with your walk with God. Bless you.

  12. That is really laying it down plainly.

  13. ít's important to be known for the right reasons. for the self and for others. and people pleasing may please others, but it doesn't always please the self... great post.

  14. May you grow closer to Him everyday sweetie.

  15. It is so difficult to get away from that "people pleasing" mode. I know that I have struggled with it for many, many years. It seems to be the only way that I can be happy. But then I stop and think that I am not truly happy....I'm just relieved that I am making others happy and it is taking pressure off of me, but making me miserable. It's a cycle that just seems to constantly come my way. You have been on my heart heavily this past week, JBR. Please know that I am praying for you daily and each struggle I go through, sadly, I know that you are going through about the same thing. But we WILL be healed and we WILL be set free! Praise God for his blessings and promises! HUGS SWEET FRIEND!!!!
