“√Ę‚ā¨¬¶and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen” (Rev 1:5-7 NKJV)

“The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes” (Proverbs 21:1 NKJV)



According to Your Word Lord, Jesus I am a king and priest, washed by Your blood. My heart is a heart of flesh, soft and pliable, held within the palm of Your hand. You have cupped Yourself around me and have become my rear guard. Though the storms rage and anxious thoughts beat like battering rams desiring entrance, my mind is stayed on You. Every intruding thought I have taken captive for all my thoughts and meditations are on You. I think on what is lovely, upright and true, letting no unwholesome word come out of my mouth. My mouth is anointed with kindness and its words supply grace and edification to the hearer.


I live, I move, and have my being in You because my face is set like flint toward the mountain where my help comes from. I am no longer of this earth for I am seated in heavenly places with an ear to hear the conversations of heaven. The eyes of my spirit are opened. My gates have given You entrance, and my mouth flows from a sweet fountain. I draw deeply from the wells of salvation, taking every portion of healing and deliverance it offers. Yes, my heart is in Your hand and You my Master Potter are shaping the clay of it into a fit vessel of honor, a vessel of praise. My thoughts are not on the things of this world for You have captivated my heart. My soul is consumed for and by You.


I delight in Your Word and I obey Your commands, therefore, You have manifested Yourself to me in plain sight that I might not miss even one inflection of Your face. My heart is faint with love, homesick for heaven, but like Paul I must do what You have called me to do. Even now I stand in a large place with the road ahead of me straight and smooth. My steps have already been directed by You before the beginning of time. I have always been in Your heart and now I am formed into an intricate piece of Your DNA.


Yes, my heart is in Your hand and I am wholly surrendered, for I love obedience better than sacrifice. I am Your temple, Your dwelling place. I am in You and You are in me. You are lovelier than all my most glorious days put together. I am ravished; I am captivated, for You have captured my heart.


Graces upon graces embrace me. Mercies upon mercies encompass me. Love upon love infuses me. Forgiveness upon forgiveness emanates from me. Wisdom upon wisdom is dispensed unto me. Yes, Your fullness dwells within me. I am like You. As You are in this world, so am I. As the deer pants for the water I come before You, desperate and unwilling to be satisfied with less than all of You. I lay my head on You admid the beating of Your heart and say, “Not my will but Thine be done.” I abide in You. Amen

  1. Hi Brenda,

    I want to let you know that I just got back from Battle Cry youth rally in Detroit MI. It was hard but the Worship that went up on Saturday night was incredible.. so much love towards our Lord went up. I pray the Lords work in 32 thousand kids will be solid and permanent in their hearts and faith will go forth as a mighty voice in the land. So, I will try to get my next story out this week..I have had 3 prisons request more Bibles.

    So how are you doing? Last night I tried to read my Bible, I was beyond exhausted and I found what you gave me for a Word and read Psalm 23. In the background I had a CD playing called The Names of God by John Paul Jackson and as I read the Psalm the Names in the background coincided with the verses in the Psalm. As I read the Presence of the Lord filled my heart and I was in utter awe. THANK YOU FOR YOUR MINISTRY// YOU BLESSED THIS WEARY SOLDIER…

    Love, Kathy Lang,
    Priest, King and (Princess)
