Lord, I have not been very disciplined the last few days. I get rolling on a project, work all night, and then disrupt the next day.
I believe I've read in the Bible that discipline is critical for survival. A regular tempered routine would serve me well. Please help me keep on track. Help me spend my time wisely and productively.
Thank you for the blessings.
Please release the anger from Theresa. I was a bit shocked when I asked her if she was interested in making money yesterday and she snapped back, "NO. I'm FINE." - we all know that is not the truth.
She said our marriage fell apart because of my anger. And then she's lied about forgiving me. I can honestly say that I'm about 95% fine with her. What happened is done. I've tried to reach out in a genuine fashion, but she rejects everything that comes from me, and thinks peace and harmony are symbolized by plates of cookies she gives me.
I'll never fully understand. But I know you will. Do what you can to lift the obvious tension from her. Even though I'm in a horrible situation now, I'm relatively at peace. I suffer from worry more than anger.
Take care of everyone in my family. Thank you for the video chatting with my sister. This is the closest we've been in three years. Thank you.
Dear LORD, I'm a bit confused today. I need help with direction. Sometimes the things I think I should do turn out to be a waste of time. And things I should have done get set aside. Guide me. Help my thoughts move in a direction that keeps me afloat. I need to be right. Walking on the razor's edge is dangerous. Help me. Please, help me.
Father in Heaven, I am so grateful for this day. I am grateful for the strength you gave me to press on during the morning hours, after another sleepless night, working.
I got two small naps today, and plan to actually go to bed tonight.
But thank you.
I feel so blessed this past week or so. I have accomplished things I never dreamed possible. I feel a power that seems so much greater than what I have been capable of in the recent past.
Thank you for the time and smiles with my daughter. She is the greatest gift you have given me on this earth.
LORD, I ask you to bring peace to my ex-wife. I have no idea why she got so angry at me Sunday for creating a blog to share information regarding our daughter. I thought it was a great idea, but she seems to perceive it as a hassle, rather than an aid in communications. Please, bring her peace.
Thank you for the time we get to spend each day talking to my sister in Ohio via video chat. It's almost as if she's here and my daughter absolutely loves it. Thank you.
I have much to be thankful for, but LORD, I need more. I need for some part of this massive array of Internet activity I've created in the last six weeks to start to produce better results. I don't know how much longer I can survive. I ask that you bless me in my search for temporary work, until my businesses begin to provide more of a steady income.
I must return to work now. And I promise to get some rest tonight.
LORD, this weekend was amazing. As a writer you have blessed me, and I thank you. Being able to muster up the creative juices to create and populate six blogs over the weekend, including this one can only be explained by your divine power.
I have never had so many ideas in a 72-hour period in my life. The pace was torrid, but I managed to keep up. Now, I need to pickup my little girl from school, the greatest earthly gift you have ever given me.
Typically, someone associated with a website is responsible for policing the site and making sure everything works properly. Posts are published, comments are moderated and site design is periodically upgraded.
I know as the author of this site, all of the tasks above are my responsibility. But what if I had a helper? What if I had someone on my creative team that was very special? He could have extraordinary talents. He could always know how things were going on this site. He'd know immediately when a link failed, and could have it fixed within micro-seconds.
When he wrote posts, readers would be inspired to do great things, walking away from their computers and spending time with family and friends; or finding a stranger in need and helping them. What if there was no way of sufficiently describing this mystery man? But we knew he had remarkable talents and skills that exceeded anything we could imagine. And when we crossed paths with Him, our lives would be changed forever, for the good.
I don't know, but being inspired to produce this site on Good Friday gives me chills. To start with a simple idea of personal prayer and creating a place to post my prayers was a rather humble beginning. I had no idea this site would grow to what it has become in a short 17 hours. Yes, I started this site on Good Friday April 10, 2009 around 7 pm PDT. I started working on customizing the template header and designing my own artwork.
Last night, on Good Friday, I tried a couple Google searches for photos and on the third try, I found the photo.
When I first spotted the photo, something set off in my mind. My simple idea of a personal prayer site was hyper-injected with fast-rising yeast and my humble idea began to expand exponentially. I've never built a site with such fervor. It was as if I was possessed. I found myself slapping posts onto the site with thumbnail phrases to quickly capture ideas, then I would go back and flesh them out as the moon traveled across the black Nevada sky.
By sunrise, all of the core elements were in place.
I write at a torrid pace. I'd have to guess, in the last 22 hours, excluding the three hour nap in my La-Z-boy chair, with my laptop toasting my thighs to a crispy red, I've written about 12,000 words or more. And they make sense!
Producing at that rate boggles my mind. For all of this to come together so quickly, I find it hard to believe that I did this alone, solely on my talent. Maybe I had a helper. Maybe a little voice became my co-author. Maybe the keys rushed my cursor across the screen at a 2-for-1 pace - true Vegas style. Finding photography was easier than ever. Everything seemed to fall into place. Oddly, the majority of the photos I found were total strokes of luck. Fortunately, I downloaded them to my desktop as soon as I spotted them. When I went back later, using the same search term to find them, they were gone. New, hideous photos were coming up in the search. Maybe I had a little friend fetching the ideal pictures from the vastness of the web for me. Everything flowed so well, maybe It wasn't just me in the softness of a 40 watt bulb, alone with my little white iBook G4 and an old Burger King jumbo cup filled with ice and Diet Coke. Maybe. Just maybe, Jesus is my Webmaster.
We have a lot to celebrate on Easter, and it has nothing to do with bunnies or chocolate. My Webmaster paid a huge price nearly 2000 years ago, so that we my have eternal life. We weren't left with images of a gruesome death on a hill under a densely cloud-covered sky. On Sunday, a huge stone rolled away and unsealed eternal life for all of us.
Yes, Jesus is my Webmaster. I hope He blesses the visitors of this site. I hope He touches them the way I felt that I've been touched during the process of building this site. I hope that a damaged soul finds their way to the photo of those beautifully clasped hands and posts a prayer. And navigates away from this web address with a little bit more in their heart than when they first arrived. With Jesus as my Webmaster, anything is possible. Mountains can be moved. Share this site with your friends. And tell them Jesus is my Webmaster.
Our world is filled with temptation.
Some temptations play on the weakest part of a person's spirit
and drags them into addictions and abusive lifestyles.
Some choose to be there. Other are innocent victims.

It's Good Friday 2009. I believe the LORD called me today. I'm beginning this site as a personal project, yet I hope that it will become a living breathing community of prayer.
