You feel like you have strayed away from Me because you have not been spending deep time with Me. You have been praying, but not taking the time to really come apart and “listen” to My still small voice in your soul.
It is not “straying”, because you are My child, but our relationship suffers when you talk to Me but don’t take the time to listen.
Listen to Me, beloved one. I have My arms around you and I am whispering in your ear. You are missing so much! What I want to share with you is the joy I feel at having you as My child.
Let Me infuse your soul with laughter!
Make the decision every morning, and during the worst of times to say “I choose You!”, then carve out some time to come apart with Me to listen and learn.
The peace inside your soul will be your sign that My presence is strongly with you.
Don’t let the world and it’s busyness cause you to stray. You are Mine and I am yours.
Come see what that means!
MORNING MEDITATIONS FROM YOUR ABBA FATHER
“But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:26-27 NIV
Dear ones who have been encouraged by the morning words from God, I want to share a little of my personal struggle with you. Your responses back to me have been so wonderful. Quite often, you write that the morning’s message is what you needed to hear that day, and it strengthens me and fills me with joy.
My personal struggle has been that even though the messages are all a little different, they have much the same message. Every morning, as I wait quietly for the words, I pray that it will be different than before. Something that will keep everyone’s attention, perhaps, therefore, adding the message that I, Alyse, might want in it.
Again, I was struggling with it last night after hearing a wonderful sermon on arrogance, and the Lord deeply impressed me with several things which I want to share with you humbly, as these messages are not from me.
1. At the beginning of every day, and in fact all throughout the day, He wants us to focus on Him.
2. Our focus should be on:
a. how much He loves us
b. how close He is to us
c. how He longs for us to ask for His help and for His constant presence in our lives
These are the deepest needs of those He has chosen to reveal Himself to. Please come with open hearts every morning, and learn to envision His real presence and love for you. It cries to the soul of every one of us, and it is real. He is real, and He wants you to know He is right beside you always, loving you in ways you could never be loved by anyone on earth.
And, as a postscript, I will get MY desires for fancy, “different” messages out of the way!!

Once again, a timely message as if it were just for me. Thank you, Alyse, for being used by God to remind us each day of His ever present love and nearness. We so easily forget, sadly.
Thank you, Brenda, for your faithfulness. Your beautiful love of the Lord is evident through your messages. May God bless you.
