"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 had something special happen to me last week. At our church we had a guest speaker. He has a very good following, especially on the radio. Anyway, I just went over to him before the service as I took the opportunity that no one was talking with him at the moment. I introduced myself and thanked him for coming and was looking forward to hearing what he had to share.

He then grabbed my hand thanked me and pulled me down and asked if I would pray for him. I could not believe this. He does not even know me. A man of his stature asking little ole me, a women, even to pray for him. I had to do a double and triple take in my mind to think, "was I actually hearing what he asked of me?" I then felt honored.

Then......he said something to me then that only I know the Holy Spirit would of revealed to him. He told me not to pray in tongues. Again, I did a double take and thought, wow how did he know that I prefer to pray in tongues over English. I just find it easier and more flowing. So, I knew this was of God.

So.... with his big hand clasped over mine as we sat together I began to pray. In English. I did not feel fear or pressure.

I took note of how comfortable I felt with this older gentleman who impressed upon my heart and my little girl of a loving father figure. Both Heavenly and the one I did not have earthly. It was a special moment I would always cherish.

Thank You Heavenly Daddy for coming in the form of this man.


  1. Yes we have something to offer others no matter how "little" we appear in our own eyes. Have a great week Grace!

  2. It sounds like that was a very special moment for you. We are all important, and we all matter.

  3. Hi There! Thank you for visiting me today :)

    Wow, what a special God-moment this was. How can anyone say that the Spirit of God does not live in and around us? This man was very filled with his Spirit, wasn't he? And he must have known what faithful person you are, and that your prayers are powerful.

    I could live on an experience like this for a long time! Thanks for sharing your wonderful encounter.

  4. WOW!! I just LOVE how Father reached out to you through this man! Daddy's loves and trust you hon, do you see His love? He is reaching you hon, He is reaching into your heart.

    Praying and praying!!

  5. This sounds like an incredible experience - one that I'm glad you were able to be a part of.

    Thinking of you and holding you in heart.

  6. God is coming closer to you because you are moving closer to Him.

  7. You are important to the Kingdom of God, my friend. Very important. "Little ole you" is special to God's heart :) Mine too!

    I bet the man felt honored to be on the receiving of YOUR prayer too.

  8. What an amazing confirmation of God's grace and love for you Grace; He was standing right there beside you as He guided you to share your love and prayers to this wonderful man!


  9. How wonderful, my friend! This sounds like a great turning point. God is so very good~

  10. Isn't it wonderful how humbling such an experience is?

    He was sent to you that day, wasn't he?

    I could feel the happiness in your heart as you related this story.
    God bless you.

  12. Such an awesome experience.

  13. You just never know when He pops up at unexpected moment. We might not see Him but His love and unity are always evident to those who love Him. Blessings to you.

    ~Blessings and love~ Lisa

  15. Wishing you a beautiful Friday!!!!

  16. What a gentle and gracious gift from our Father. My earthly father was an alcoholic and what they call a "mean drunk." While I did not have the same kind of trauma you did, my childhood was certainly scarred by his rage.

    How thankful I am for a loving heavenly Papa.
    Have a good weekend. ... Marsha

  17. What an awesome moment! I'm sure it's one that you will remember forever! It's a gift that you can recall when you are feeling down or unsure! God is so good!
