My Warroom

Dear Readers,

Merry Christmas to all of you!  Remember to celebrate Jesus’s birthday this year.  This will be my only blog for December.  I’m troubled about what to write since the terrorist attack in San Bernardino.  Some politicians are even saying prayer doesn’t help.  But with all my heart, I know this is wrong…

 

MY WARROOM-  Journal Entry,   August, 2014

I have grown to love my time alone with the Lord.  I’m walking in the prayer field (my warroom) for the first time in a while.  It’s total peace out here.  No phone, no TV, no internet; just me and the Creator alone together.  As I look around through the early morning fog that surrounds me, I can sense the Holy Spirit everywhere.  The only sounds are a few distant birds and my shoes crunching the dry hay. (We desperately need rain in Missouri.)

I have discovered praying this way, all alone, I feel like I’m being heard; I mean really being heard!  I’m writing in my tablet as I walk but can’t stand still for long or the chiggers will get me!  As I pick up sticks and stones along the edge of the field to help keep the farm land clean, it occurs to me how fortunate I am to have this acreage as my prayer closet.  My little dog runs in circles as we meander along this meadow, round and round again and again, talking to my heavenly Father.

After over 40 years of journaling, I have discovered that I am not destined to be a great or famous writer, but at 70 years old, success doesn’t seem to matter to me anymore.  I only want one thing, to get the word of salvation through Jesus Christ to as many people as possible.  I believe with all my heart that the Lord will be returning soon, very soon.

I recently was told that my blog, after five years of stories, is now starting to reach different parts of the world.  I also know my God likes us to be humble and to always remember where our gifts come from.

As I return home from my prayer time in my warroom, a lone dove leaves the trees and flies overhead reminding me once again that God is close.  As I glance around the alfalfa field, I know how blessed I am.  I need only to watch the world news as proof.

Merry Christmas to all my faithful readers,  Love in Christ,  Claire xoxo

P.S.  Please remember this scripture.  John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  (NIV)
